Spotlight Shines on Tech Export Potential

The Federal Government's export and investment body Austrade has recognised the achievements of five Australian software companies in an inaugural ceremony sponsored by the agency.

Three Sydney-based software developers won DesignWorld awards, while a Wollongong firm and Adelaide-based Disc Australasia were also winners.

Major winners were IQMS for its process management software iKnow, Presence Online for its Web content integration solution Aptrix, and Streamlink for its product e-Procure.

Four year-old Presence Online has now grown to 45 staff. Its content management system, Aptrix, has been incorporated into the company's projects for high-profile clients such as AXA Australia, the Goodman Fielder corporate site and AMP, for whom Presence Online has developed all internal and external sites.

The awards are set to become an annual event with a growing number of nominations expected each year. Assessment criteria covers three key areas in which the company must excel - market potential, performance and innovation.
