The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2019-06-11T01:42:50Z Felix’s Enterprise Procurement Platform Wins Queensland iAward 2019-06-11T01:42:50Z felixs-enterprise-procurement-platform-wins-queensland-iaward Brisbane, 11 June 2019 – Cloud-based Australian Enterprise Procurement Platform, Felix, has won a highly prestigious Merit Award for Business Service Markets at the Queensland Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) State iAwards. Announced at a gala dinner event in Brisbane last week, the AIIA iAwards are the nation’s leading awards program that helps to recognise, celebrate and elevate Australian digital innovation. Felix is an integrated Vendor Management System and Sourcing platform, giving customers an end-to-end solution to manage supply chain risk and drive value creation during the procurement phase of the project lifecycle. Against an industry backdrop of intensifying competition, pressuring margins and increasing compliance requirements, Felix allows customers to implement technology-enabled, sustainable process governance as the industry scales during an unprecedented infrastructure boom. Felix has been garnering significant traction with leading industry names, landing flagship enterprise contracts, as well as being implemented on a growing number of Australia’s major infrastructure projects, such as the West Gate Tunnel Project for example. An evolving legislative landscape, such as the recent Modern Slavery Act, Indigenous Procurement Policy, and Local Content schemes are driving construction businesses towards leveraging technology that provides them with trackability and traceability on sustainable procurement targets, while creating efficiencies that contribute towards the bottom line result. Dan Wilson, General Manager at Felix, said, “Australia is undergoing an unprecedented infrastructure boom, and the need for smart technology that allows organisations to scale effectively while mitigating increasing risk exposure is paramount. Felix has been purpose-built to meet the exacting needs of the construction industry both in Australia and overseas.” “We are thrilled that Felix has been recognised with an iAward in 2019. This is testament to our ongoing investment in platform development, focus on customer needs, and the skills and talent of our team. Our customer-centric relationship approach has helped Felix quickly establish itself as a platform of choice in construction and related industries, and we now look forward to ongoing success in the years ahead, partnering with customers to deliver business value through procurement transformation.” AIIA CEO, Ron Gauci, said, “Each year the AIIA iAwards shine a light on the exceptional achievements of those at the forefront of Australian innovation, and the projects shaping our modern economy. We're proud to celebrate and provide recognition, encouragement and a national platform for people seeking to bring an idea to life, enabled or supported by technology. Whether they're in start-ups, the public sector, community services, school, academia, or private enterprise – small and large – the work of the finalists is an inspiration to us all." - ENDS - About Felix Felix is a cloud-based, modular procurement platform that makes it easy for organisations of all sizes to automate and centralise their Vendor Relationship Management and Source-to-Contract (S2C) activities.
