Prowler Proof App

Improving Business Processes

Prowler Proof partners with a network of over 150 dealers across Australia who sell and install their extensive range of security door and window screens.

To further streamline their processes, Prowler Proof identified that dealers needed faster, more direct access to the manufacturing status of individual orders without having to phone the sales team when they received customer enquiries while out of their office.  This information would also allow the dealers to provide superior service to customers via regular, up-to-date feedback about the exact status of their orders and the installation timeframes.

CEO Sleepout 2016 a success

CEO Sleepout Thank you!

CEO Sleepout - Thank you!

Thanks for your support!

This year over 1400 Australian business leaders joined the 2016 ‘Vinnies CEO Sleepout’ to raise crucial funds that will provide emergency assistance to the women, children and men who need it most.

Thank you to those who contributed $1000 in support of Bruce and the great work of the St Vincent de Paul Society.

Raising Hope for the Homeless

CEO Sleepout 2016

CEO Sleepout 2016 

It is difficult to believe that in such an incredible and “lucky” country there are 105,000 Australians – including an increasing number of women and young children who struggle to survive and have no place to call home.  Did you know:

  • 24,000 are homeless because of domestic and family violence
  • 27% are children
  • Many Australians are only two pay days away from being homeless

Homelessness is a real statistic and can happen to anyone. We need to unite as a community to eradicate the homeless statistic by giving hope and assistance to the most vulnerable in our society. On 23 June I will join other business leaders in the 2016 Vinnie’s CEO Sleepout to support the challenge of raising awareness and much-needed funds to support the homeless in our community. Please help me to make a difference to the lives of others.


Thank you for your support.

Recently, our General Manager James Radvan was invited to contribute to the Digital Brisbane blog in order to share some of Speedwell’s digital industry knowledge with Brisbane’s small business community.

Speedwell works with a lot of businesses of all sizes in Brisbane, and we deal with many of the same concerns over and over. One of the common ones is web security, and James deals with that in his first article.
