Virtual Synchronicity - ACCI Small Business Development Corporation Home Based Business Award

On-line Solutions

Eva Bett and Trish Ryans-Taylor with their 2011 ACCI Business AwardsTrish Ryans-Taylor and Eva Bett's commitment to continually improving their business – Virtual Synchronicity - was rewarded at the 2011 Albany Chamber of Commerce and Industry Business Awards.

In their second year of entering the awards, Virtual Synchronicity won the ACCI Small Business Development Corporation Home Based Business Award and were runners-up in the ACCI Wignalls Wines Award for Micro Businesses.

Virtual Synchronicity provides sustainable web based solutions, particularly for small business owners, and has built up a team of skilled professionals to support them in delivering quality work.

After participating in the Small Business Development Corporation's BIZFiT program last year, this year Trish and Eva are attending Curtin University's Owner Growth program.

"We are accessing the latest training and business information enabling us to provide the best possible advice to our clients," according to Trish.

"It was interesting to reflect on what had changed and improved the second time around entering the ACCI awards," Trish said. "Since our first award entry we have done the BIZFiT program – so that has helped us in our business. What we said we were thinking of doing we have done and come up with other things."

While the Curtin Growth Program was challenging and pushing boundaries, it was building their resilience and tenacity in business, according to Eva. "The program has made us aware that we have more potential than what we thought we had," she said. "For example, Trish has now started consulting; drawing upon her information systems experience, cloud computing knowledge and legal research experience.

"We have established that we don't just create websites - we are much more than that – we provide on-line solutions," Eva said. "We have been able to consolidate and streamline our energy and efforts, and now realise our background in information systems is benefitting us in multiple ways."

"We don't speak jargon, and we believe we are customer-focussed," Trish said.

Virtual Synchronicity must be doing something right - the business has tripled the work in progress than at the same time last year.

Both Trish and Eva encourage others to enter the ACCI awards saying it was a good opportunity to have a close look at your business. "Winning has also provided us with fantastic publicity which builds credibility in the marketplace," Trish said.

As to the future, Virtual Synchronicity would like to expand their business to include working with larger companies, as part of their vision to create a sustainable, more resilient business model that is less susceptible to economic and technological changes. "That is one reason why we have built our business around cloud technology because we believe, it provides the best solution for our customers," Trish said.
