We recently had the pleasure of designing & developing an app that aims to reduce some of the 1 billion+ disposable cups Australian's throw away each year. The 'Green Caffeen' app is a "swap and go" reusable coffee cup platform that gives users access to a network of green cups at dozens of cafés across the Illawarra, and soon Australia-wide.
If you love your coffee but want to help keep the planet green, then download the app and join Green Caffeen today. Visit greencaffeen.com.au to get started.

Castlecrag Montessori School - a preschool and kindergarten located on Sydney's Lower North Shore - recently hired Creatio to design & develop a new website for their school.

Something we've been working on for the past several months is finally launching this week... Introducing BARCATS, a hospitality recruitment platform helping staff find jobs, and venues find staff.
Creatio worked closely with founder & CEO Jeff Williams to develop the platform, which is free for staff to use, and offers both pay-as-you-go as well as subscription options for venues wishing to post jobs.
We look forward to supporting BARCATS on their startup journey. And if you're interested in finding out more, check out their explainer video here.

You can find out more about Dumpsta and download the app from the website (which we also developed) - dumpsta.com.au
For the past several months we have been working closely with YMCA NSW to redesign and develop a brand new website. They're previous website (built with Joomla) was becoming difficult to maintain and they were having trouble implementing new features.
So we developed an entirely new, flexible and scalable website using Python + Django, with a custom administration site for YMCA staff to manage & update the website themselves.
Not only does the website support YMCA NSW's corporate activities, but it also includes individual microsites for their 90+ recreatation & childcare centres across the state - with each one able to be individually managed by the centre staff.
This was a fantastic project to work on, and a great client to work with, and we are looking forward to continuing working together in the future. Check out the new YMCA NSW website at www.ymcansw.org.au
Creatio co-founder Mitchell Page was recently interviewed by Dropbox about starting a small business in Australia, as well as the risks (and rewards) involved. We've been using Dropbox at Creatio for the past 8 years, and it's fair to say that along with Google Apps & AWS, we could not run our business without it!
Before the interview we got to hang out with Dropbox in their brand new Sydney office, and take a sneak peak at some of the cool features they'll be introducing in the near future. So if you aren't using Dropbox Business in your own business yet, you really should be.

We first tried out Slack in late 2014. It was a beautifully piece of chat software, but we were so used to Skype for chat that we didn't really give Slack a chance. Fastforward to 2016 and we're now fully onboard with Slack. The software had definitely improved in that time, but we'd also become a lot busier. With more projects and work stuff to discuss, we needed something that would allow us to chat 1-on-1, or collaboratively in the context of a project or topic.
The Australian Security Industry Association Limited (ASIAL) recently engaged Creatio to develop the "Home Security Challenge", the online component for their 2015 consumer awarness campaign.

Today, the 25th November, is International White Ribbon Day. A day when men and women across Australia are called to wear a white ribbon or wristband as a visual symbol of their commitment and oath to never to commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women.
This year we made the white ribbon symbol a lot more social. Instead of having to purchase a physical ribbon or wristband to show your support, we provided every person that made a donation with a 'virtual' white ribbon that they could 'wear' on their social media profiles.
You can show your support by visiting the White Ribbon Day campaign page and taking the oath: www.whiteribbon.org.au/day
GenerationOne had been maintaining a separate desktop & mobile website since 2012. This was making it difficult to keep their content up-to-date and was becoming confusing for their users.
To resolve these issues, GenerationOne engaged Echo Communications & Creatio to redevelop their website frontend and make it responsive. The result, which launched today, is a user-friendly interface that automatically resizes to fit the device its being viewed on, whether its a desktop computer, tablet or smartphone.
Check out the new GenerationOne website here: www.generationone.org.au
