The Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner is being held on 28 October in Perth.
PERTH, Australia (27 September 2016) – acQuire Technology Solutions has been nominated for two categories in the Western Australian Industry and Export Awards. The awards program recognises the contributions of businesses to the economy through job creation and increased prosperity for the community and for the State.
The first category, Digital Technologies, is for outstanding international success in information and communication products. Finalists must provide technology or services concerned with the storage, retrieval, manipulation, transmission or receipt of digital data. Winners of this category will proceed to the national competition.
The second category is an industry award. The C.Y. O’Connor Award for Excellence in Engineering and Technology recognizes excellence in engineering, technology, medical technology, information technology and/or technical research and development.
‘We’re honoured to be recognised for our work in both these categories, especially as 2016 marks our 20thyear anniversary’, says acQuire managing director, Alison Atkins.
‘Our focus has always been on the global resources community and helping them create trust in their geoscientific data’.
‘It’s long been our belief that resources companies have a valuable business asset in their data, one that is critical to helping them make strategic business decisions’.
Despite operating in a volatile market experiencing declining commodity prices and contraction in spending throughout the mining industry, acQuire's export sales revenue increased by 17% in 2015/16 with 68% of the company's total sales revenue coming from international markets including Canada, Chile, USA, Brazil and South Africa.
In 2015/16 the acQuire GIM Suite was implemented into new sites in North America, South America, Europe and Africa. New technology and consultant partnership programs were also launched globally. acQuire continues to maintain and target its international markets through an innovative, values-based business model, brand and product strategy and continual research and development.
The awards dinner is held at Crown Perth on Friday, 28 October 2016.
