Kiandra IT is on track to achieve about 25 per cent top-line growth in FY13, on the back of growing demand for its services.
It also plans to increase its workforce by 35 per cent during the next 18 months to help cater for this.
Kiandra IT managing director, Cameron Brookes, said despite flat economic conditions, the company has experienced strong growth particularly during the past 12 months with its custom software development services.
“We are seeing a growing demand for custom software from clients who wish to match their business needs to a solution which delivers efficiency and effectiveness across their organisation,” Brookes said.
“We’ve signed several multi-million dollar deals, picked up a number of new clients including Fernwood Fitness, Tennis Australia and Parks Victoria, and extended the scope of services with existing customers – T2, Coles, Credit Corp, Mercer, the Metropolitan Fire and Emergency Services Board (MFB) and Quest Serviced Apartments.”
Brookes said the IT security landscape was also becoming increasingly important and it has ramped up its focus on solutions and resources in these growing areas.
“This financial year our headcount has grown more than 25 per cent, and in the next 18 months we expect to grow by another 35 per cent to deliver the evolving solution breadth we anticipate, while still remaining nimble enough to adapt with industry demands,” he said.
During FY13 Kiandra has scored a number of accolades including Microsoft Australia Partner of the Year for the Windows Azure Platform SI category; Medium Business of the Year Award at the Victorian Telstra Business Awards, and SMB Reseller of the Year at the ARN IT Industry Awards.
