Publishing software company Typefi wins Australian Export Award

Queensland-based publishing software company Typefi has won the Small Business category at the Australian Export Awards, which were hosted by Austrade and the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Brisbane on 24 November.

Typefi, a provider of single-source automated publishing software, was cited for its ‘clear commitment to pursuing its goals through international business channels’, making note of the company’s ‘diverse global workforce, its robust and systematic approach to financial and risk management, and its highly client-centric approach’.

Exports made up 84% of Typefi’s total revenue in 2015-16.

In a statement CEO Chandi Perera said Typefi has ‘always recognised that its best opportunities for growth lie in export revenues’. ‘If you have a world-leading product and great services, it will help you punch above your weight globally,’ said Perera. ‘Typefi … can be used to produce almost any print or digital document, which has allowed us to expand into markets outside traditional publishing.’

As previously reported by Books+Publishing, in October Typefi won the Small Business Award in the Queensland Premier’s Export Awards, recognising its ‘outstanding success and contribution’ to the state’s trade output.
