Welcome to Ostral
Founded by Philippe Soria in 2004, Ostral started as a consulting business providing database and website development services on Sydney’s Northen Beaches. Ostral Pty Ltd was then incorporated in 2006 and offered technical support to clients ranging from small business operators to large corporate IT companies such as Infomedia Ltd.
In 2008, Ostral launched Businessbox and focused on website development and hosting for sole traders, consultants and small businesses with the launch of the Businessbox CRM: a website and iPhone application to manage clients contacts, quotes and invoices from one single dashboard. The Businessbox CRM later found commercial applications in the finance industry with the development of an online system used by financial advisors.
As of today, Ostral operates from Byron Bay with a team of web and software engineers available for short to long term contract work, servicing clients across all industries (trades, medical, legal and fashion).
In addition to web development services, Ostral offers a range of e-commerce and « backend » operation services to local online stores and emerging Australian brands: online accounting, online marketing, stock management and order fulfillment.
Last but not least, Ostral is currently developing a range of technology services using remote pilot aircrafts (drones) as well as laser engraving systems for local companies and businesses.
