Greentree announces finalists for GAME ON competition
16/11/2011 - The waiting is over, and the 10 finalists in Greentree GAME ON have been chosen.
It wasn’t an easy job for their judges – the calibre of all the entries was truly impressive, and they’re proud to say that the 10 businesses vying for the grand $250K software prize are each special in their unique way.
So without further ado, Greentree present the 10 awesome Aussie companies that will battle it out for the ultimate business painkiller:
Asthma Foundation NSW: This not-for-profit organisation needs better CRM in order to help thousands of people manage their asthma.
Caesars: "Style is eternal" is the motto of this furniture retailer, which is also a major supporter of community projects in its home district of Griffith, NSW.
Central Diesel: From a two-man operation in the back of a truck, this Adelaide-based provider of diesel equipment, servicing and infrastructure now turns over $20m a year and sees big prospects for expansion.
Cymax: This Queensland-based provider of high-tech IT and telephony would like to grow its revenue by 50% – but is hampered by low-tech business systems.
GMW Group: Infrastructure for the 2022 Soccer World Cup in Qatar is among the major architecture and engineering projects worldwide being run by this company, headquartered in Sydney.
Hydro International: Water, water everywhere! This Victoria-based business specialises in drainage solutions while its other company, Rhino Grating, makes the covers that stop people falling into the drains.
Kimberley Accommodation Group: If you wanted to visit the Bungle Bungles, you’d probably stay at a hotel run by this company, based in Broome, WA.
Mecrus Group: What does this Melbourne business do? Just about everything! They help other businesses with asset and project management, operations and maintenance, and more.
Newcastle Airport: Positioned at the gateway to the Hunter Valley wine region, this domestic fledgling wants to become an international bird.
Southern Cross Lubes: This company keeps the wheels turning, distributing Mobil lubricants in Victoria and Tasmania, and needs Greentree to truly be king of the road.
So there they are: businesses on the move that want to perform even better with the help of Greentree GAME ON. While their work is hugely diverse, they share many common issues: they’re running outdated, non-integrated systems, they want better visibility of their performance, and are confident they can grow even stronger with better computing power.
The competition is now in the hands of the judges, and the public vote, which counts for 50% of each entrant’s final score. The winner will be announced on December 7th.
Greentree would like to extend a special thanks to the judges: Chris Alp, Brett Clark, Mark Nilsen and Peter Dickinson, whose work continues as they ponder which deserving business will walk away with the grand prize.
Good luck to all the competitors, from the GAME ON team.
