Seequent named Supreme Winner

Seequent named Supreme Winner of 2018 New Zealand International Business Awards

CHRISTCHURCH, NZ – November 9, 2018 - Seequent, a global leader in the development of visual data science software and collaborative technologies, has won the Supreme Award at the 2018 New Zealand International Business Awards, after earlier winning the ANZ Best Medium Business Award.

Graham Grant, COO of Seequent says, “Seequent is thrilled to be named as a winner in the 2018 New Zealand International Business Awards alongside a stunning group of New Zealand companies. We’re immensely proud of our dedicated and passionate team around the globe who help our customers ultimately make better decisions about their earth, environment and energy challenges, with seriously smart technology.”

Seequent develops data visualisation and geological modelling solutions that enable those in the mining and minerals, civil engineering, environmental, and geothermal energy industries to extract valuable insights from complex raw data.

Seequent’s 3D modelling tools and technology are widely applied across industries and projects, including road and rail tunnel construction, groundwater detection and management, geothermal exploration, resource evaluation and estimation, and subterranean storage of spent nuclear fuel.

The judges were impressed with how well Seequent portrayed the emerging story of New Zealand on the global stage – advanced technology, focussed on making the world better, operating in a high-value niche and executed with precision, tenacity and ambition.

Earlier in the week Seequent announced it had opened its 14th global office, in Colorado, USA. The increased commitment to the US market, which included the appointment of key staff, follows the rapid growth of the company’s Civil & Environmental division since its release of Leapfrog®Works 3D geological modelling software in February.

“The United States has one of the largest infrastructure industries in the world,” says Daniel Wallace, General Manager of Civil & Environmental at Seequent. “There are real infrastructure challenges in the US, with a significant amount of infrastructure to be built, rebuilt and maintained. Aging infrastructure is something the civil engineering industry has been tasked with, and our solutions can help through digital innovation by connecting underlying geology to engineering design.”

Seequent’s Leapfrog products support client projects in over 90 countries. Recent examples include a tunnelling project in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest transport infrastructure project; a groundwater project in Bentiu, South Sudan; and a gold mining exploration project in Nevada, USA.

Seequent’s global headquarters are in Christchurch, New Zealand and its global network of offices supports its five key territories Asia/Pacific, Africa, South America, North America and Europe. Seequent also has strong academic partnerships, working alongside 150 universities with its academic software programme, and employs many postgraduate students.

The New Zealand International Business Awards are run by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE) and supported by Strategic Partner, ANZ New Zealand Limited. They celebrate the success of New Zealand businesses on the world stage and recognise excellence and innovative practice.
