Calxa Wins Innovation Award

Calxa Australia has won an iAward for its contribution to the NFP community

Software specialists, Calxa Australia has won an industry iAward recognising the contribution its software has made to the community sector in Australia.

The 2012 iAwards honours companies at the cutting edge of technology with Australia's three peak industry bodies: The Australian Computer Society (ACS), Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) and Pearcey Foundation coming together to deliver the awards program.

The Judges said the award recognises the innovation of Australia’s ICT industry and the unique solution that Calxa has developed to a problem that has a major impact on Not for Profits.

Queensland-based Calxa provides budgeting and cashflow forecasting software to the sector, much of it donated through Connecting Up’s DonorTec program.

“Community organisations are under pressure to improve reporting, achieve transparency and good governance while at the same time minimising their administration costs. Month-end reporting can take up to four days which Calxa reduces to just a few hours,” Calxa CEO Mick Devine said.

“While it’s great to be recognised by our peers in the IT industry, for us the greatest recognition comes from the feedback we get from our customers – the finance officers of community organisations across the country who no longer have to battle with complex spreadsheets every month.”

Calxa Australia has partnered with DonorTec and TechSoup New Zealand to provide $1,000,000 worth of budgeting software to grassroots Not for Profit organisations across Australia and New Zealand.
