What people are saying

Collabforge made developing our Website and Wiki simple. No wading through the jargon land of ‘Information Technology'; just dialogue that made sense and practically aligned with what we were trying to achieve. So patient, so helpful and always on the other end of the phone when I needed to ask a question.

Alison Fitzgerald
Inner Melbourne Action Plan Implementation Officer

We definitely wouldn’t have been able to get to this point without all of the hard work you personally put in, and the assistance of everyone at Collabforge. Thank you so much! I feel like our vision is finally becoming an actuality.

Deb Robertson
Education Officer
West Australian Ballet

Collabforge gave us the very big advantage of engaging with some of our most important stakeholders in a way that excited them about the project and encouraged them to get on board.
