Local predictive maintenance software firm DINGO supports charitable ride to raise funds for lntegra Service Dogs – a nonprofit dedicated to transforming the lives of Veterans and First Responders

Brisbane, Australia – 30 March 2021 – “The lntegra Service Dogs Australia’s 2021 Coast to Coast Ride kicks off 1 April and we are delighted to announce DINGO as our Naming Sponsor” said lntegra’s CEO and Co-founder Ben Johnson. The lntegra Ride features brothers Brian and Ian Schumacher as they cycle 4,400 km across Australia to build awareness for the vital work of lntegra Service Dogs and help raise needed funds.

lntegra dogs are specially trained canine guardians for veterans and first responders who are suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The dogs are trained to become emotionally tuned to their handler and provide unconditional support through the trauma and stresses of everyday life.

lntegra has matched and placed more than 100 Labrador dogs with Veterans and First Responders. It costs approximately $30,000 to train, match and place an lntegra Dog and the non-profit’s ability to provide this support relies heavily on fundraising and charitable donations.

DINGO, a leading provider of predictive maintenance software, is proud to support to this momentous cause by sponsoring the lntegra 2021 Coast to Coast Ride. The sponsorship is part of DINGO’s ongoing commitment to supporting local charities to positively impact the community.

“We are extremely proud to sponsor lntegra and this great event. Our Veterans and First Responders are heroes, and this is our way of thanking them and supporting them into the future,” said Managing Director of DINGO Defence and ex-soldier, Ron Parrella. “The DINGO team wish Brian and Ian all the very best for their ride”.

The brothers will begin their journey at Bathers Beach Fremantle at 2pm Western Australian time this Thursday 1 April. After dipping their back wheels in to the Indian Ocean, the pair will ride approximately 120km a day for 44 days travelling through Esperance, Nullarbor, Adelaide, Echuca, Thredbo, Canberra, Wollongong before finishing in Sydney.

“Partnering with Dingo allows us to leverage remotely located condition intelligence experts from the get-go for a fraction of the normal cost to company. This allows our few reliability experts to focus on the top issues and make important decisions to ensure our fleet availability is where it needs to be instead of having them analyzing data and looking for the issues.
