True success can be found quickly by addressing your client's immediate problem and then looking beyond to develop real, sustained value.

At Expede we work tirelessly to provide our customers with the means to become a visionary partner to their clients.

Doug Friday
Expede Founder and CEO

How we got here

In 2005 Doug Friday founded Expede as a professional services company consulting to major projects in the oil and gas and resources sectors thriving in Western Australia. It quickly became apparent that huge amounts of time and resources were being wasted on these projects due to people simply not having the right information in front of them when they needed it. The range of documents affected by this was enormous from contracts to claims, tenders to minutes of meetings. There was a real and pressing need for an intervention and the first version of Expede was the result.

Over the intervening years our software has been developed in partnership with our clients in professional services businesses. Each of these brought their own needs and we learned from them and improved the core product giving people better tools to manage documentation and workflows.

Enter the Cloud. Expede evolved into a Microsoft Azure application as cloud technology matured. Expede takes advantage of Azure services and a mix of other technologies to deliver extremely fast document uploading and processing speeds. It integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Office 365 and uses Active Directory as a key part of ensuring user roles are well defined and secured. 

In 2019 Expede goes from a closely guarded secret shared amongst a small group of project managers, law firms and engineering firms, to a global audience. We can't wait to help your business take command of your data and deliver ongoing client success by unlocking the information capital stored within your projects and cases.
