First time CEED experience proves fruitful for early-stage IT company


Brisbane based technology venture Traxor, worked with CEED for the first time in semester one this year and promptly employed the student and also signed up for a second CEED project. 

Traxor, a member of iLab technology incubator at Toowong, has developed an innovative relationship management system that can achieve a network of related information for companies through its exclusive ‘ Relate!” technology.  The company employed QUT final year Masters of IT student Samantha Taylor on a research and development project to design a graphical user interface (GUI) for Traxor’s existing client relationship management program.

As Patrick Boucousis, CEO Traxor explained using the ‘six degrees of separation’ analogy, the technology is designed to provide a graphical front-end to the Traxor CRM system. By illustrating organisations, people, assets, documents etc and the relationships between them in a graphical format of links and nodes, much like a mind map, data is much easier to understand. The links are context-sensitive relationships and users can drill down on nodes for greater detail.

He said that Samantha achieved the project’s objectives and the company offered her a job to continue working on the prototype.

“Samantha helped the company achieve the first stage in the development of this new interface and is now continuing work on the functionality as we develop what we believe to be the world’s first graphical CRM system”, said Patrick.

As a first-time user of CEED, Patrick said that he was impressed with CEED’s project management structure and the additional support offered to ensure the project was a success.

“We also benefited from CEED’s high profile amongst students and university departments as we had a great response to our project advertisement.  This meant we had a good selection of high level students to choose from for the project,” said Patrick.

Traxor’s second CEED project is being delivered this semester by QUT Master of IT student, Mehrad Seyed Sadegh.  This research and development project involves extending the capability of Traxor’s SaaS (Software as a Service) to interface with other systems.  Mehrad is on track to complete his project on time, in November.
