Budgeting and cashflow forecasting software vendor, Calxa, has been recognised with a ‘highly regarded’ accolade in the Social Capitalist category of the 2012 Cool Company Awards.

“We’ve donated $275,000 of software to grassroots not-for-profits in less than 18 months and that would have been possible without the assistance of Connecting Up’s DonorTec program.”

More than 700 companies were nominated this year.
