IMX wins Amex contract
Listed Australian integrator Powerlan is partying after its acquisition of the IMX Software Group two weeks ago, with the purchase already bearing fruit.
IMX won a contract last week to supply its software products to a number of American Express Foreign Exchange Service's South African Bureau de Change outlets.
Under the terms of the contract, IMX will provide its OSS front- and back-office products designed to process point-of-sale transactions for foreign cash, travellers cheques and international money transfers across Amex's South African network.
Adobe appoints channel manager
While its US doors closed for the first week of July, the Australian operation of software developer Adobe Systems appointed a new reseller and retail account manager.
In a voluntary bid to save around $US400 million, Adobe shut down its US operations.
Since then Adobe Australia has appointed channel manager veteran Joe Bizinger as the man to drive education, training and seminars designed to better equip the channel.
Bizinger is a veteran of Logitech Computer Peripherals Australia, Sourceware and Epson.
Mincom mines B2B
Queensland-based software developer Mincom has notched up its third B2B software sale in quick succession despite being subjected to an ongoing and public management tussle.
Mincom signed a contract with Alcan subsidiary Nabalco for the developer's Envoy e-procurement software. A win Mincom is touting as the onset of an expected B2B "boom".
The news follows similar recent contract wins with Mount Isa Mines in Queensland and utility Western Power in Western Australia.
Mincom has since announced it will hold an exceptional annual general meeting on August 1, designed to quell the intended coup by Wayne Bos, former Sausage Software corporate raider.
