WattsNet began as a consultancy in 2008 to allow its founding directors to take advantage of an expanding client base. In mid 2009, an opportunity was presented to WattsNet to develop a business management system. One of WattsNet’s clients had been searching for a software product to meet their needs and nothing on the market at the time was meeting those needs. From that grew Heads-up. Wattsnet continues to provide IT services to its clients in the mining, environmental services and architecture industries. As it grows, it is moving more and more to providing software development services to those same clients and new clients.
Malcolm Watts, Director
Malcolm founded WattsNet to take advantage of his expanding consulting business for ICT Services. This allowed him to take on a business partner and staff. With that, he could continue to expand the business by leveraging his skills. Malcolm has a strong background in implementing and managing ICT services for SMEs and can operate in all the major SME IT Platforms.
Ian Watts, Director
Ian is Malcolm’s brother and joined WattsNet in early 2009 to help with some of the management decisions in the company. He took a lead role in the development work associated with Heads-up when that opportunity arose in mid 2009. Ian has degrees in Engineering (Elec) and Design Studies and has built his IT product management skills working for IT consulting companies in Australia, the USA and the UK. Prior to joining WattsNet he worked for Jeppesen, a Boeing subsidiary, as a team lead for their suite of public transport information system products.
WattsNet has a development team working primarily on Heads-up. When not doing that, the team also build and update other bespoke software packages for clients.
