We brought our Sydney team to our Head Office in Melbourne yesterday and an in-depth look at the new software we are about to roll out.  Getting all parts of the company across this significant new release of our software in advance of mass release is crucial.

As the most comprehensive update in several years, it is key that our entire team is across the new facilities and other changes.  The field experience of the Sydney team is unique and key to understanding how many of the features will be received.

Yesterday’s visit was also useful in fine tuning our documentation and some cosmetic aspects of this new release.

While our software development team is shielded from much of our day to day business, the scoping, design and finessing of new software is done in an open and co-operative way across the whole company.  We all have a stake in this.

We let our customers know yesterday that we are on track to start manufacturing CDs on the weekend.
