Welcome to Ostral
Founded by Philippe Soria in 2004, Ostral started as an IT consulting service provider on Sydney’s Northen Beaches.
In 2006 Ostral Pty Ltd was incorporated and offered multilingual 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 web 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.
Since 2012, Ostral operates from Byron Bay and offers a range of e-commerce backend operation services to local online stores and emerging Australian brands including:
- web development and hosting
- online marketing and bookeeping
- stock management and order fulfilment.
More recently, Ostral launched Byron Bay Drone, a company providing drone aerial imagery services and 3D mapping to local businesses, private landowners and governmental agencies.
