Prime Minister’s award recognises Admin Bandit’s community partnerships for second year running
Software developer Admin Bandit has won the Australian Capital Territory Small Business Award in the Prime Minister’s Awards for Excellence in Community Business Partnerships for the second year in a row.
The Prime Minister’s Awards acknowledge businesses that work with community organisations for the greater social and economic benefit of the sector in which they operate.
Admin Bandit’s award recognises the company’s continued collaboration with the Canberra Preschool Society to create an easy-to-use software accounting package, designed specifically for volunteer treasurers in community groups. Originally called Treasurer’s Useful Box, the package has been expanded in the last year and is now simply known as Admin Bandit.
“We’re thrilled to win for the second time,” says Admin Bandit Director Nerida Gill. “It reinforces the significant impact we’ve had on the preschool community in Canberra by making the task of being a volunteer treasurer fast and effortless.”
An ideal financial management tool, the software further benefits preschool associations by saving time and money. Gill estimates the software has already saved the ACT preschools $500,000 – money available for equipment and resources for future generations of preschoolers.
This year, Gill was also honoured with giving the opening presentation of the Canberra Community Business Day, which culminated in the presentation of the Prime Minister’s Awards. “My dream was to give a business presentation in 2011,” she says. “Now I’ve had the opportunity to inspire other businesses to build community relationships four years earlier!”
Admin Bandit was one of five award winners in the ACT and the only winner of the Small Business Award. The company plans to produce a web-based version of its software and expand to cater for volunteer treasurers across the community and volunteer sectors.
