Speedwell becomes Australia’s first Certified Znode Solution Partner of leading ecommerce platform Znode
Znode are leading the way in the ecommerce sector by producing a highly scalable solution with an extensive suite of ‘out-of-the-box’ features. Speedwell entered into a partnership with the leading eCommerce platform in late 2013, making Speedwell the first and only Australian Znode Solution Partner.
Recently Znode announced their partnership with Sitecore, a leading consumer-focused, personalised CMS solution that Speedwell partnered with early 2013. This alliance provides Speedwell the ability to deliver unbounded engaging and powerful digital experiences through their partnership with both systems.
Premier Campbell Newman recently published a joint Media release discussing Tourism and Events Queensland’s (TEQ) newly launched Visitor Information Centre (VIC) application that aims to help tourists locate Queensland Accredited Information Centres on their smartphone device.
Speedwell’s pool room got a lot shinier in November with the addition of three distinguished awards.
Speedwell recently launched the Brisbane Airport iPhone application to enhance the customer experience and improve efficiencies. I was in the international terminal a week after launch and had someone approach me to ask where a certain store. It was awesome to be able to pull out the application and help him out (and of course ensure he downloaded the app).
Before I joined Speedwell I was a Store Manager at national electronic retailer. Over the last five years I managed small teams of five, to large teams of twenty five. I’ve seen the good, the bad and the very ugly in regards to all aspects of retail. I understand just how much pressure there is for all team members’ at all levels of the organisation, who strive to achieve the same goal: to survive, and have enough money to open the doors tomorrow.
Are you a leader or a follower? This one question summarises for me the contrast between corporate and studio life. I naturally like to have freedom to be creative and innovative, which as a corporate employee for nearly 20 years at times conflicted between the culture and my own character.
The aim of this post is to share my experience of changing from a corporate-centric culture to that of a digital studio.
I recently attended a breakfast where analyst firm Gartner shared their 11 top technology predictions for 2013, grouped in four areas of economics, risk, opportunity, and innovation. Since attending the session, I have reviewed the predictions with both the executive in my digital studio and the development team.
