Company Summary

Over the past five years, Techniche has honed this strategic focus and built a platform from which we are now well-positioned to become the leading listed software conglomerate in Australia.

Our businesses develop and deliver proprietary software solutions that serve critical needs in the day-to-day operations of our customers. Techniche employs an active management approach by working with and incentivizing management, to successfully grow our businesses in Australia and around the world both organically and via strategic acquisitions.

We recognise and understand the tremendous challenges faced by Australian technology entrepreneurs in building global businesses and we are unique as a listed investment company in our experience, knowledge and focus on this field of endeavour.

Innovation is at the core of everything we do across our organisation – reflected in our ongoing investment in R&D targeted at identifying the unmet needs of our customers and ultimately in bringing world-class software products to market.

Today as a diversified software conglomerate, we have a significant global footprint with operations in three continents, more than 70 driven and passionate staff who serve hundreds of customers and other stakeholders around the world.

We also support start-up and innovation programs in our local communities.

Techniche also seeks to invest in inorganic expansion opportunities for our businesses, that drive long-term growth through new markets, new products, new territories and new capabilities.

Techniche’s continuing priority is to deliver outstanding returns to our shareholders, while becoming an investor and partner of choice for outstanding software companies.
