Mitrefinch Australia celebrated its 10th anniversary in the country, while registering an 11 per cent growth, gaining new customers and winning two business awards.
Mitrefinch set up shop in Australia in 2003 to distribute workforce time and attendance management software systems across the Asia Pacific region.
Mitrefinch Australia has had an exceptional year in 2013 with the latest reports indicating an 11 per cent growth in sales, and up to 50 new time and attendance system customers in Australia and New Zealand. The new clients include a multinational paint manufacturer with over 80 retail stores across Australia; a global transport and package delivery organisation with operations in 200 countries; one of the region’s leading food manufacturers and exporters with over 1,000 employees at their world-class manufacturing site in Adelaide; and most recently, a leading player in the automotive services sector operating in the distribution, retail and logistics markets with more than 1,100 employees.
Allan Murdoch, Business Development Manager, Asia Pacific explains that their goal since 2003 has been to deliver quality, cost-effective solutions to their customers and to work hard to gain solid reputation based on excellent customer service. Mitrefinch Australia now has close to 400 businesses using its workforce time and attendance systems.
From a product development perspective, Mitrefinch continues to expand on its innovative range of data capture options designed to collect employee attendance and job information from a number of different sources. A beta version of a new staff scheduling solution designed for organisations with complex staffing issues has also been released to enable them to optimise staff allocation and ensure projects are implemented as efficiently as possible. Mitrefinch Rostering is currently being tested at a number of live sites across the UK, Ireland, the US and Australia, and will be officially launched in early 2014.
Mitrefinch Australia also won the NSW Business Chamber regional awards in the ‘Excellence in Innovation’ category for their advancements in cloud-based software, biometric time and attendance and mobile workforce management technology using iPhones, Blackberries, Androids and Windows based mobile devices, while their Marketing Manager, Jamie Fitzsimons won the ‘Young Business Executive of the Year’ title.
Mitrefinch was also shortlisted as a finalist for ‘Technology in Application’ at the Logistics Magazine Mercury Awards, with its time and attendance systems commended for reinventing the way organisations in the logistics and materials handling industry are managing their mobile workforces.
Mitrefinch has also purchased an additional office within the Homebush Business Village on the fringe of Sydney Olympic Park to facilitate ongoing growth and further expansion in 2014. This state-of-the-art facility will house Mitrefinch’s Sales, Marketing and Support operations for Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia and the Pacific Islands.
