Business magazine Australian Anthill is calling for young South Australian entrepreneurs to wave the State's piping shrike flag in nominations for its annual 30under30 competition.
Anthill publisher James Tuckerman said South Australian nominations for the 30under30 awards have been few and far between since applications opened in February. Ironically, SA produced the 2007 winner for Anthill's Cool Company Award, Rising Sun Research.
Mr. Tuckerman has called on South Australians to nominate an SA entrepreneur for this new national awards program before the April 7 closing date. Nominees must be under 30 years of age on June 1, 2008. They can work for their own company or work for someone else. They just need to demonstrate that they have an entrepreneurial mindset.
Adelaide courier company Aceit Transport Solutions has more than doubled its turnover in the past three years using state-of-the-art technology developed by Australian transport specialist JAIX Software.
Aceit uses the JAIX MetroLink software, which includes GPS (Global Positioning System) and digital communications technology, to manage its fleet of more than 90 couriers. This has allowed the company to boost deliveries by more than 20 per cent in the past year.
During 2007, JAIX has provided Aceit with a new generation of smart software that integrates satellite navigation and digital communications technology into a system that makes life easier for Aceit, its couriers and their customers. The GPS version of MetroLink provides:
Customers with self-service via the Internet for placing bookings and job “track and trace”
Couriers with handheld computers that seamlessly record every delivery detail, and

“What really makes the difference is having more relevant creatives, so that people are more likely to click on our ads. This translates to many more conversions within the same budget. The key improvement is that we’ve spent money on promoting the actual car listings available on Drive.com.au which improves both the user experience and conversion.”
Online car sales site Drive.com.au
Drive.com.au’s key objective was to build Search Engine Marketing creatives and keywords for used car listings in Google AdWords campaigns while meeting volume and cost-per-unique-visitor targets.
After deploying the Australian-developed Dynamic Creative software, Drive.com.au was able to quickly create and optimise granular search engine ad campaigns with a high quality Google score.
Drive.com.au created an additional 250,000 keywords and associated creatives which went live within two months, extending campaigns to take advantage of the ‘long tail’ of ads that match specific used-car listings. Drive.com.au was also able to measure results such as boosting productivity by hundreds of per cent, increasing click volumes and decreasing cost per click (CPC) by 30 per cent.
