how it all began
The founder - Anthony, an expert in business solution design, implementations and operations in TierOne organisations across many industries and Government (Federal & State) with many decades experience in Australia, NZ, Asia Pacific, Japan and Europe. Through this journey he faced the some challenges every time with his clients and partners.
The problem - In every implementation and operation of Business applications the clients faced similar issues. Highly complex solutions with conflicting flexibility in some cases ,based on old technology which were hard to implement and manage, inconsistent User Interface, hard integrations with multiple back end systems or other point solutions, long periods for deployments, difficult to adopt internally by staff and externally by Suppliers, high cost to implement and ongoing cost (Licensees & Support), insufficient initial funding as key activities for the implementation and BAU management were not accounted for and so on.
And, ALL solutions were geared for the very high end of town not suitable for Medium and small enterprises or mid sized government organisations.
At the same time the last 2 years we are hit with extreme events such as COVID and lockdowns, Inflation, interest rate increases and Global Supply Chain pressures which moved teams to remote work and challenged budgets.
There must be a simpler and easier way to do it and to remove the complexity and minimise/eliminate the challenges.
The idea of HQengine was born to solve this problem using the latest technology and trends with out of the box thinking.
Our Team - a Team was then assembled of true Experts in the field with decades of experience in deploying and managing business solutions working for companies in Australia like Ariba, SAP, Coupa, KPMG, Deloitte and others. These experts were coupled with IT experts in the latest cloud technology, AI solutions, Process experts in PEPPOL einvoicing and Academic/Researchers advisors specialising in AI- Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Company Governance & Accounting, Sustainability, Blockchain and FinTech.
Our Solution - we created a single open platform, easy to deploy and operate using AI at its core and optimising technology using Amazon Web Services in making business transactions more efficient, effective, secure while giving the best human experience to the every day business Heroes that are touching these end to end transactions.
The HQengine Open Business Transaction Hub platform is geared for the mid and small business & government market and can also play a key value add to existing implementations of large businesses and government.
The Value - To ensure that organisations maximise their benefits as quick as possible HQengine in addition to our platform offers services in the areas of wholistic Digital Transformations, data, Supplier onboarding,
