May 10 2011 – Canberra, Australia
PRD Software is proud to announce that PRD Software now carries the official “Australian
Made” certification. This level of accreditation is awarded to products in which “all, or nearly
all of the manufacturing or processing is carried out in Australia.” The famous “Australian
Made” “green triangle with golden kangaroo” logo is instantly recognizable and can be found
on over 10,000 products sold both in Australia and around the world.
PRD Software owner, Rod Weir commented regarding the logo and it’s use:
“PRD Software and the software we create has always been 100% owned and produced
in Australia, however we felt that it was a good time to formally get the certification. PRD
Software will be exhibiting at CeBIT 2011 in Sydney this year, and we thought we’d use this
occasion to show the Australian IT sector that they have a world-class software solution for
the service management / helpdesk industry, developed and supported right in their own
backyard. With the ITSM market becoming more competitive, with many foreign companies
now offering solutions, we find that a lot of prospective clients we speak with are looking
for an Australian made and supported product. When it comes to product sales, support
and to “just be able to pick up the phone and talk to a local”, Australian representation and
company ownership are seen as significant partnering factors. PRD Software is confident
that the “Australian Made” certification will help in this regard as well as with our marketing
