Melbourne-based Print MIS software firm, DolphinWorxs have been awarded a Victorian Government scholarship for the Global Acceleration programme (GAP), offered by Pyksis and ANZA Technology Network. DolphinWorxs CEO, Stephanie Gaddin, her husband Trentin Barnard, and business partner Tobie van Dyk are South Africans who moved to Melbourne in 2010 to expand and solidify the business in the Australia and Pacific region.
GAP is a competitive programme and positions are only opened to select companies on a twice yearly basis. DolphinWorxs was selected with four other highly innovative companies in Victoria from a field of approximately 80 entries for the programme, which included two weeks of intensive seminars, market research, and market exploration in Silicon Valley in the USA. Participants got to work with mentors in the USA who are highly experienced CEOs from a diverse range of backgrounds and industries.
The scholarship was awarded in recognition of DolphinWorxs innovation in developing their latest product, PrintWorxs, a fully online Cloud based Print MIS solution. It is aimed at SME Print shops with 20 or less employees. The programme is also targeted at manufacturing and trade businesses, such as building and home maintenance and is sold under the name JustWorxs in these industries. The software is unique in that you do not need a consultant to set up your system for you, and it can handle complex estimating and quotes in a fully online environment, without needing to rely on an offline MIS .
Dolphin Software MIS is sold under license in Southern Africa by Anwol Consulting.
