John Hellabycheckmyhouseprice, a new service that provides homeowners with a free professional valuation of their house value, is now available to real estate agents – also for free!

This breakthrough service gives the homeowner the most up-to-date market information on what their property is worth and what properties around them have sold for as well as providing trends, statistics and growth information for their suburb as a whole.

checkmyhouseprice is designed to appeal to real estate agents who are seeking to generate more leads, increase their property listings and, thus, increase their sales. Once a real estate agent signs up for an area, they become the only agent for that suburb with access to the service’s website at www.checkmyhouseprice.com.au

The checkmyhouseprice service has been developed by Queensland real estate agent John Hellaby who came up with the concept to attract more property listings to his real estate agency in the south of Brisbane. “Similar services are available, but they are very expensive to use,” he said.

Executive summary

When listed biotech company Circadian Technologies Limited recognised that preparing its half-yearly financial reports for the Australian Stock Exchange was becoming a financial and administrative burden, the company decided to replace MYOB with Microsoft Dynamics NAV, deployed by national ERP software specialist Evolution Business Systems (EBS). Since installing NAV, Circadian has reduced reporting times, lowered administrative overheads, eliminated errors and provided finance staff with their first ever chance to take annual leave during Christmas. Benefits delivered by Microsoft Dynamics NAV and EBS include:

  •    Cutting two days from the time required to prepare half-year financial reports
  •    Consolidating five separate databases into one integrated system
  •    Greater accuracy through the elimination of manual processes and external spreadsheets
  •    Managing project budgeting and expenditure more effectively than other solutions
  •    Availability of consolidated reporting at the click of a few buttons
 
“EBS put a lot of time into the upfront understanding of what we wanted.”

AlltradersFast-growing software specialist Alltraders has overhauled its website and launched new branding to focus attention on the boom in demand for its software engineering services.

The two-year-old company, which now has more than 20 employees, was established in Adelaide with an initial focus on website development services.

However, Alltraders director Michael O’Loughlin said the past two years had seen strong demand for the company’s software engineering and application development services. “We decided to overhaul the website at www.alltraders.com to better reflect the breadth of our activities,” he said.

A Fijian whale's tooth - or tabuaAdelaide antique dealer Peter Jenkinson has located a rare whale’s tooth – a sacred artifact known as a tabua - from Fiji.

Last year, Mr. Jenkinson bought the whale’s tooth from the son of an Australian Methodist minister, the Reverend Charles Dadds, who had received it as a gift from indigenous Fijians when he was a missionary from 1918-1920.

Mr. Jenkinson said the tabua was intricately interwoven in traditional Fijian cultural life. “Its relationship with the sacred is the key to its understanding,” he said.
