Barcaldine Fundraiser

As you all may already know, the 2010-2011 floods in Queensland were devastating. UniPhi for Major Projects was chosen as the portfolio and project management tool by Jacobs (then known as SKM) in the subsequent flood recovery program.One of the key regions UniPhi supported was the Central West region of Queensland. On August 16, the town of Barcaldine hosted a fundraising event to raise funds for the local community and thank everybody involved in the recovery project.

“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.”
  - Charles Dickens

We were proud to be involved in the event through our donation of two iPads for auction with all proceeds to go to charity. We chose iPads in celebration of our new OnSite app which was developed based off feedback from users of UniPhi for Major Projects on this program. The day proved to be of success, with David Lynn Project Director at Jacobs mentioning:

"We raised $8,000, which was well above expectations. Jacobs matched dollar for dollar, what was raised, which obviously doubled the take. The iPads were hot items. They went for almost market price $500-600 each. Everyone was in the spirit of the fund raising and paid handsomely for items."
All proceeds went to a local charity or centre.

We at UniPhi like to think that we 'lighten the burden of another' with our PM tools. Making all areas of project management smoother and easier. But when our tools can be used for such big projects, like the Queensland flood recovery, which helped the community greatly with the after effects of the floods, it really makes our work that little bit more rewarding.

We won!

We won an award for Innovation! The Australian Business Awards recognized our extraordinary efforts in innovation and now...we have a beautifully framed award in our office that we can all flash around and be proud of! It was hard not to win this award, considering all of our latest innovative achievements, including, recently, the Onsite App that is now available on the iPhone.
 What a fantastic title to have next to our name: Innovation.

"Innovation is creativity with a job to do"- John Emmerling

....we have most definitely shown our creativity at work with the practicality of our software. With all this new technology being introduced on a daily basis, innovation is at the up most importance. Everyone is always looking for the next best thing, and we are constantly responding to the changes of now, to create and shape the future. 
Think about every device that you use in your every day life, they all began with an idea, then blossoming into an innovative design that makes life that little bit easier. Innovation is a vital part of our growing world, so to be able to be recognized in this category, is definitely worth a high 5!
Now lets go back to the words Innovation and Creativity. They both need each other to make it work, much like the team here, we all work as a team and achieve tremendous results! 
Now, have drink for us...or two...
