One of the things we’re most proud of at Pegasus is our culture. Good culture comes from the top and is championed by our very own Head of People and Culture Pru Killick.
Pru recently appeared on the NewyTechPeople podcast to talk all things Pegasus with Linda Apostolidis. In their conversation, Pru shares what makes our people and software unique, as well as exciting opportunities available at Pegasus and our plans for the future.

4:45 How centralizing information within our software works for our clients.
“The beauty of the system with us is that you can centralise all of that information for the client but also standardize all of those protocols to get to site.”
6:00 How Pegasus is scaling our solution globally.
“It’s enabling us to show the power of the product and how it is able to do this no matter where you are in the world, you’re able to bring these same standard practices into any workforce, anywhere.”

NewyTechPeople is passionate about attracting and retaining the best talent for their clients in Newcastle and the Hunter region with a focus on technology. They primarily work with start-ups, scaleups, product companies, digital firms and local enterprise.
“The greatest benefit of working with Pegasus has been the high level of innovation and features available in their packages that aren’t available in other products we have investigated.”
“I’d check Pegasus two to three times a day. It became a single source of truth for workers and safety on the project.”
"Working alone, the data entry was extremely high. I could spend one or two days entering 100 – 200 certs. The system is automatically updated, and I save two full days of work all up - yesterday I was done within 4 hours.”
“The Pegasus platform allows us to standardise the onboarding and induction of contractors nationally, with the robust system underpinning our contractor management process.”
“Pegasus is now used in managing safety, job planning and reviewing the commercial side of things. Pegasus is now integrated with everything we do.”
