Are you an Australian based company?
Chevron Technologies is a fully Australian owned and operated business. Chevron Technologies has been around since 2007 starting as a small technical support firm, then expanding into the online retail space where over 5 years we operated in a highly competitive space selling over 10,000 online computer products with thousands of customers and orders.
Over the last few years we have been reshaping the business back into a service orientated business, moving forward into website development and design. Matthew has been coding since 2007, but became certified in 2016 now holding a certificate 4 in website technologies and a diploma in website development from TAFE SWSI. Programming is a passion of Matthew's and you will be recieving the best possible service from us.

How do you track project progress?
Project tracking is managed using two systems, the first is software called JIRA which is a tracking system for projects, faults and tasks which also allows for monitoring of time and billing into our finance system, the second is via Microsoft Project Manager. Project Manager will include all the tasks, the time frame and resources required for the project. This will be updated and provided to the client on a regular interval.
