Locally-based global software company Intelledox has this week been named Business of the Year at the 2014 Telstra ACT Business Awards.
Intelledox, who just last month participated in the ACT Government’s Trade Mission to Singapore, was founded in 1992 by ANU science graduates Phillip Williamson and Michelle Melbourne.
Since that time Intelledox has attracted more than one million worldwide users to its flagship product, Infiniti, with the company now competing with some of the biggest names in IT.
The Infinti software helps organisations to digitise and streamline paper-based information processes, mitigate risk and improve customer communication. A response to the demand for mobile-enabled business solutions, Infiniti was named one of Australia’s most innovative products or services on Anthill Magazine’s 2013 Smart 100 list .
The business has experienced rapid international expansion from its small base in Fyshwick, with 35 staff now based in offices in Singapore, Toronto and recently opened offices in New York and London.
Mr Williamson, Intelledox’s CEO, says they are challenging traditional approaches to collecting, controlling and transforming customer interactions and manual processes through smarter document automation and more targeted customer communications for clients in the government, financial and healthcare sectors.
Mr Williamson said: "Our software is driven by the belief that applications should be simple to use, elegantly designed and able to perform beyond clients’ expectations."
"In technology, it is not enough to be a fast follower. We strive to be a thought leader in the customer communications and business process automation space."
Intelledox’s win at the 2014 ACT Telstra Business Awards comes just weeks after they announced a new partnership with business giant Fuji Xerox . The deal see’s Fuji Xerox become an authorised reseller of Intelledox’s Infiniti software in the Asia-Pacific market.
Continuing the digital innovation trend at the awards, digital security contractor, Cogito Group, was named winner of the Start-Up category - recognised for its digital inscription technology that protects key public infrastructure from hackers and cyber attacks.
Other winners at the 2014 ACT Telstra Business Awards were Phillip-based micro business, Solace Creations, which specialises in energy efficient windows and doors, and father and son small business, Today’s Homes, which provides custom design and construction services for residential home-builders.
Winners of the ACT awards progress to the Telstra Australian Business Awards, which will be announced in Melbourne on 7 August.
