CollabIT Program - Collaboration Portal Launch
The CollabIT Program will be launching a business Collaboration Portal 'CollabIT Connect' during the luncheon.
CollabIT Connect is the portal that will connect companies to companies, enabling new business partnerships to be formed. Companies can register their business details and showcase who they are and what they can do. CollabIT Connect will become the first stop when doing business. The Portal is live and businesses can register their company details at www.collabitact.com.au.
The Portal has been funded by the Deparment of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research, and Tertiary Education and has been developed by CommsNet Group, Crystal Approach, Funnelback and Infinte Networks.
