More than 500+ surveys, two major pilots, and 50 prototype design styles throughout our consultative process over the past two (2) years.
We hit the pavement speaking to the communities on the street, over the phone, meeting with stakeholders face to face to learn about their pain points.
We identified serious gaps costing companies in lost revenue and high risks of procurement breaches with no sustainable solution in sight.
We also found funded services failing the basic human rights when it came to barriers for self-determination while delivering fundamental funded programs.
Q. We asked ourselves why couldn't the social equity gap be narrowed within Australia for our First Nations?
What we found:
We uncovered the two missing pieces were basic human rights to access identity and the control of essential information for making informed choices. There was a major flaw overlooked during the technology revolution, which was the inaccessibility for many first nations populations to control fundamental information equity.
What is important about information equity?
Most enterprises surveyed would hold information on behalf of clients due to their inability to control their own information securely. This resulted in individuals becoming third parties to themselves, and enterprises at risk of authoritarian practices encouraging cycles of dependency by default.
It was not a deliberate attempt by enterprises but the failure of no adequate solution available to resolve such a problematic issue.
We also discovered that when third parties were managing individual transitional information and correspondence, which resulted in individuals being further removed from making informed choices or progressing outcomes in their own lives.
Poor inclusion levels limit self-determined pathways towards a quality of life.
The impacts can be felt across many social determinants in regional communities that lead to poor health outcomes, such as social-emotional wellbeing (mental health), higher incarceration rates, accidents - risky behaviour, and domestic violence.
When fundamental human rights are removed or inaccessible, what the public sees is the social strain on individuals and families living in regional communities.
Until now there had been no clear definitive way to improve the current Billion Dollar $$ over-resourced and under-delivered programs and the risk for procurement opportunities.
Why not us?
"Diverse problems should be solved by diverse people who understand the diverse issues, resulting in a diverse solution." Founder of HoldAccess.
We went out on a limb and tackled the problem by applying an evidence-based approach to our assumptions and we won. Our uniquely Australian innovation is founded on 80,000-year-old Message Stick Technology, a cultural tool used for relaying information and identity through encrypted information to build tribes and lead culture.
HoldAccess is transforming what it means to hold identity and access your own information for faster-safer transitions, to ensure sustainable economies that harvest employment with skills parity - So Everyone Wins.
