We're finalists at the 2021 ARN Innovation Awards

We’re stoked to learn that we’ve been announced as finalists in not one but two categories at the ARN Innovation Awards 2021.

The ARN Innovation Awards set the industry benchmark for ecosystem innovation and excellence across the technology sector in Australia. We thank ARN for recognising Wiise’s achievements in both categories.

Find out what the teams do behind-the-scenes to make Wiise worthy of the Tech Innovation (Homegrown ISV) and Partner Innovation (SMB) award nominations.

Homegrown ISV: Give it up for an Australian localised ERP

Accelerated by the events of 2020, and now, as the race for post-pandemic recovery begins, small and medium businesses (SMBs) are looking to cloud-based technologies to modernise and scale their operations. Wiise, in its early days, recognised that one of the biggest roadblocks for businesses migrating to a cloud ERP, was cost.

Not only were businesses having to foot huge bills for implementation, they were also being hit with expenses to customise their business solution to suit Australian requirements for payroll, banking and audit purposes.

We set out to change that. We took a powerful and trusted Microsoft platform and turned it into a hyperlocal yet affordable ERP solution that makes cloud technology accessible to Australian SMBs. Think integrated STP-compliant payroll and timesheets, automatic Award updates, industry specific Chart of Accounts, bank feeds, landed costing, BPAY batch functionality and more.

That's one way we help Australian SMBs save time and money, while giving them access to enterprise-grade tech.

"We’ve been working hard to continually innovate with Wiise and becoming a finalist in each of these categories is such a testament to that."

Hamish Browne, Wiise CTO 

Partner Innovation SMB: Delivering innovation through our partners

At Wiise, we empower our partners to help SMBs see the value in modernising their business by switching to cloud-based ERP systems.

A localised solution built on a global platform, our partners love Wiise. In addition to the out-of-the-box functionality highlighted above, we were one of the first in the market to offer fixed-scope implementations. Our Flexi Setup approach went a long way in making ERPs more accessible for the end user and helped our partners accelerate their go-to market strategies.

Wiise, with it its open APIs, is also designed to be quicker to implement. Several of our partners implemented Wiise remotely through two lockdown-stricken years. And that is perhaps what makes Wiise a standout in this competitive cloud ERP space. With Wiise, our partners can close deals faster, implement solutions faster and help more Australian businesses access enterprise-grade tech to future-proof their operations.

Continuing to grow with our customers and partners

Our commitment to Australian businesses remains the same. We innovate every day to ensure we develop the features and functionality they need to run their operations as smoothly as possible —and our partners are integral to delivering all that innovation.

Our product roadmap is packed with features focused on AI-driven data and analytics, dashboard reporting, features to make warehouse management more efficient. The Wiise team has also been working on several partner-centric initiatives to support and empower our partners even further.

Put it this way, if we're an award-winning business today, it's all thanks to our customers and our partners.
