In what seems to be becoming something of a trend for Ezypay, the direct debit service provider was awarded the Panasonic Best Medium Business of the Year in the Telstra Business Awards, held at the Westin Sydney on Friday 9th July.
This is the third recognition that the company has received in recent months, coming close on the heels of being included in the BRW 50 Best Places to Work and being awarded the winner of the MyBusiness Best Medium Business in 2009.
As Chief Executive Trent Brown explains, as a team, we are very proud of the achievements of the company since inception.
The commitment of the Ezypay staff to our goal of growth throughout Australia and New Zealand, as well as into other countries, is a significant factor in our achievements within the company and those recognised externally.
One of the key criteria for the choice of winners in the Telstra Business Awards this year is a commitment to growth, nationally and internationally, a factor that Ezypay have certainly addressed with their 2006 expansion into New Zealand, continued growth across Australia and plans to open an office in Malaysia before the end of 2010.
Trent Brown attributes Ezypay’s success, both in award recognition and general business growth and achievement, to the dedication of an engaged team who bring life to the visions and goals of the business created by founder George Holman.
Direct debit services is not a very exciting product in itself, says Brown, adding we have placed high importance on creating a fun, inclusive and dynamic working environment for our staff that fosters creativity beyond their daily activities, cultivates team bonding and encourages them to strive for excellence and take pride in their achievements.
Without that dedication, particularly from key drivers within the organisation, many of whom have been with us for a number of years, the significant recognition and continued service development for our customers would not be a reality.
What’s next on the horizon for Ezypay? An expansion to their existing team by 33% across Sydney and a new Malaysian office before the end of 2010, which will accommodate planned new services and improved offerings to existing services.
Moving into Malaysia is a very exciting prospect for us, says Brown. Adapting our core company culture to fit with employees in a country with quite different perspectives will be an interesting challenge that we are looking forward to.
Ezypay now goes through to the national business awards to be announced on 20th August.
