Our History

RDY Logo Inverted L 4


Established in 1994 by brothers Adam and Shane McInnes, Open Windows Software, has been a key innovator in procurement and contract lifecycle management for 30 years. Now part of Readytech, and trusted by Australian and New Zealand government agencies & large commercial organisations, our premium solutions offer outstanding value and a personalised partnership through implementation.

Driven by a vision to simplify business through technology, our journey began in the early days of the procurement profession and the internet. With a background in commercial construction management, the McInnes brothers experienced manual processes firsthand, inspiring the creation of Open Windows Software, possibly the world's first computerised contract management system.

Continuing to lead the market in transforming complex contract & procurement processes, today, our flagship product Ready Contracts is used by over 150 organisations across Australia and New Zealand.

Joining forces with ReadyTech, has accelerated the broadening of our customer base and expanded our reach and capability. This collaboration has allowed us to bring more benefits to our customers faster, with Ready Contracts and Ready Buy automating procurement policy for organisations of all sizes and further reinforcing our reputation as a trusted leader in the space.
