iVistra Announced Computerworld Innovator of Year

iVistra Announced Computerworld Innovator of the Year

iVistra Technology, an Auckland-based company specialising in data visualisation, has been named ‘Innovator of the Year’ at the 2004 Computerworld Excellence Awards, just months after launching its first product - Enterprise Visibility System (EVS).

Enterprise Visibility System (EVS) is a customised business product that was designed by iVistra Technology to take fleet and other asset tracking to a new level of sophistication. As well as mapping the location of moving assets in real-time, EVS also displays a variety of operational and financial information to give a business greater visibility.

EVS has been recognised as innovative for the way in which it integrates live tracking data with a business’s enterprise systems, layers the information in a sleek interface design and will soon let users access via a range of mobile devices. According to the judges, “the key factor that distinguishes iVistra Technology from its competition was the simplicity and beauty of its visual interpretation of complex business activities.”

Craig Meek, iVistra CEO, says EVS turns data into pictures so a business can see its entire operation in real-time and make better informed decisions more quickly. “It’s the ideal dashboard for a range of industries, including transport, utilities, forestry, manufacturing and defence.”

EVS has been successfully piloted and installed at Toll TranzLink. The country’s largest infrastructure supply chain mover of chilled, frozen and dry goods around Australasia was also acknowledged at the annual Computerworld Awards, winning ‘Best Overall Excellence in the Use of IT’ for EVS. The company’s General Manager of IT, Garry Collings, was named CIO of the Year.

How EVS Works

Step 1: EVS tracks moving items and networked infrastructure and the appropriate attributes in real-time. It can work with a range of tracking systems including barcode, RFID tagging and GPS. Step 2: EVS integrates the real-time positional data with appropriate mapping geography to give the exact location of the tracked item. Step 3: EVS layers the live tracking and mapping data with financial and operating information from the business to give complete visibility of key performance indicators like utilisation, efficiency and profitability. Step 4: EVS can be accessed from multiple locations via a variety of devices and displays.
