REDEYE LANDS GOVERNMENT GRANT FOR NEW TECH

SOFTWARE company RedEye has received $250,000 from Advance Queensland's Ignite Ideas Fund.

The funding will accelerate the launch of RedEye's new workforce mobility solution, RedEyeWFM, which aims to help the business grow its share of the projected $US320 billion global enterprise mobility market.

RedEyeWFM, enables teams to manage the creation, scheduling and completion of jobs anywhere, on any device and builds on the company's existing software as a service (SAAS) product, RedEyeDMS, which is targeted at the engineering industry.

"We have employed a new Product Manager and Software Lead because of the Grant. As we scale, we expect our new workforce mobility software will create another 20 to 30 new tech jobs in Queensland," Cofounder and CEO of the Brisbane-based business, Wayne Gerard (pictured) says.

RedEye has spent nine months engaging with potential clients around a prototype and is currently focused on building a community of small and large businesses who are working collaboratively and transparently in real-time.

"As with RedEye's existing SAAS solution, RedEyeDMS, our new RedEyeWFM solution will be built with the user experience at its core, providing a simple and enjoyable interface, driving towards zero training for users."

The award was announced today by Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk during her keynote at RedEye's Future of Work Summit, being held at Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
