Why EconomX?

Why partner with EconomX?

I’m in Supply or Procurement for a Major Project

After many years designing and delivering Local and Regional Content strategies for Major Projects, we identified significant gaps in the technology toolkit. EconomX fills these gaps.

EconomX is designed by industry for industry, but we also have a very clear presence in regional communities. We proactively look for ways to make regional content a commercial benefit for major projects who want to be socially progressive. We enjoy designing smart and savvy solutions, rather than just ticking a box.
We do tick the box as well – as a recognised software provider for Australian Industry Plans but our interests, like our clients, are far broader than that.

EconomX has built relationships with economic development organisations and all levels of government across Australia. This makes us the ideal partner to get a Major Project truly connected with regional suppliers.

Our platform is new and flexible, backed by a team of expert data-driven professionals. Our advice spans the full lifecycle of a project, covering commercial aspects as well as social license to operate.

Most of all, our philosophy is to partner and empower. We don’t just provide a technology platform, we provide a way to connect with the community and make your contribution count to the overall growth of the region.
