2018/19 Winner

Appbot Pty Ltd - Testimonial 

Winning the Emerging Business Excellence category gave us a great opportunity to share the Appbot story locally, and opened up some new connections for us here in Perth. Our business is almost entirely international with less than 2% of our customers located within Australia, so we tend to fly beneath the radar in the Western Australian business community. We hope that our story offers encouragement to other software companies, looking to startup here in WA.

It was great to be recognized alongside such inspiring companies and people and to be able to offer some support to a charity we really believe in, PetRescue.com.au
