Calxa is officially 'cool'

Budgeting and cashflow forecasting software vendor, Calxa, has been recognised with a 'highly regarded' accolade in the Social Capitalist category of the 2012 Cool Company Awards.

According to Calxa CEO, Mick Devine, the success was a team effort that relied on great support from customers and partners.

"We've donated $275,000 of software to grassroots not-for-profits in less than 18 months and that would have been possible without the assistance of Connecting Up's DonorTec program."

The Cool Company Awards is a national program developed in 2006 to acknowledge Australian companies that are doing things differently to bring about positive change.

More than 700 companies were nominated this year.

"Judging takes into account far more than mere business variables, such as revenue and wealth," Anthill Magazine editor-in-chief, James Tuckerman, said. "The criteria are geared to consider other qualities, from the disruptive nature of the product or service to the culture of the organisation.

"A field of hundreds was examined before our judges were able to isolate three finalists for each of our seven categories."
