Empired Limited named a Westpac 2018 ‘Business of Tomorrow’

24 July 2018

Perth, Australia — July 24, 2018 — Empired Limited has been named as one of Westpac’s 2018 Businesses of Tomorrow, celebrating 200 Australian businesses helping to shape the nation’s economic future.

Chosen from “an overwhelming amount of applications nationwide,” by independent experts from Deloitte and Westpac representatives, the winning businesses “exemplify adaptability, resilience, value to customers, and a readiness to meet tomorrow’s challenges.”

Open to Australian organisations of all sizes and across all sectors, Businesses of Tomorrow is a program designed “to reward and recognise businesses with the drive to shape Australia’s future.”

Empired Managing Director, Russell Baskerville says: “We are honoured to be recognised by Westpac as a Business of Tomorrow amongst an impressive cohort of forward-looking, customer-centric Australian organisations. In particular, the award is fantastic validation of our focus on delivering tomorrow’s advantage today to our customers.

“Empired’s greatest purpose and value lies in being able to help our clients to stay relevant and successful in today’s fast-paced world of business, using technology as the enabler. Being acknowledged as a Business of Tomorrow is a real endorsement of this focus on helping Australasian organisations achieve transformational outcomes.”

In a media release from Westpac announcing the 2018 winners, David Lindberg, Chief Executive, Westpac Business Bank and 2018 program judge, said this year’s applicants demonstrated the scale of movement of the Australian economy into a digital world.

“The digital economy is predicted to be worth $139 billion by 2020 to the Australian economy - as a key driver of change in the future, this year’s businesses reflect the drive that’s disrupting and shaping the industries they operate in. Almost three quarters of the top twenty businesses are directly involved in technology or software development and this year also saw an increase in micro-business applicants, including early stage tech-businesses, which increased almost three-fold from 2017.”

In addition to being recognised as a Westpac 2018 Business of Tomorrow, 2018 has seen Empired receive several other notable accolades, including admission to the prestigious Microsoft Dynamics Inner Circle 2018/2019, recognising the top 1% of Microsoft Dynamics partners worldwide, and Microsoft Country Partner of the Year for New Zealand.
