The Consensus Group, Australia’s premier industry recognition organization, was pleased to announce that Centium Software was the Consensus Award winner for 2014.
According to the judges, “Centium Software is the very essence of Australian software entrepreneurship. Having already received a Consensus Award in 2012 for its GuestPoint accommodation management software, Centium was not prepared to put its creative ingenuity back on the shelf.”
The judging panel also commented on the impact of EventsAIR on the meetings marketplace.
“Centium has now created an innovative, world leading event management software system with EventsAir which is being eagerly accepted by event managers globally. Within the first six months of release the EventsAir system already has dozens of customers. In a $5.65 billion market place the global potential for the EventsAir solution is almost unlimited, and Centium has courageously targeted becoming the number two supplier globally within the short to medium term.
There are a host of innovations within the new cloud-based EventsAir solution, at multiple levels, including both the user interface and the underlying technology. Customisable apps for both the end-users and the organisers is a major innovation at the user interface level, while a very creative design enables the exploitation of the Microsoft Azure capability to achieve a dramatically scalable solution.
An extremely flexible pricing strategy complements the final solution, one which Microsoft itself has show-cased globally, ultimately delivering the highest level of performance in a system that event organisers are longing for.”
Centium Software CEO Trevor Gardiner, accepting the award on behalf of the company noted “this win is recognition of all the hard work that the entire team at Centium have put in over the last 18 months to create EventsAIR from just a conceptual design to a finished product. I am very proud of the professionalism, determination and dedication of the entire Centium team in the creation of EventsAIR.”
