Company-X in running for Excellence in IT and ExportNZ awards

HAMILTON, NEW ZEALAND, June 29, 2018: Fast-growing Hamilton software specialist Company-X is a finalist in the New Zealand Excellence in IT Awards.

Company-X director Jeremy Hughes and his team of business analysts, support analysts and software developers are finalists in the Excellence in Govtech category in the national awards held every two years.

ON POINT: Company-X director Jeremy Hughes, gesticulating, with the One Network Road Classification Performance Measures Reporting Tool team.

This award is for a team or individual who has achieved outstanding results through technology innovation in any aspect of central or local government IT. This could include anything related to Government, including open data and open government projects.

The One Network Road Classification Performance Measures Reporting Tool, built by Company-X for New Zealand roading authorities, has caught the attention of the IT Excellence Awards judges.

It’s the second time Jeremy, who founded Company-X in 2012 with David Hallett, has been up for a New Zealand Excellence in IT Award. Jeremy was nominated in the Excellence in Public Sector IT category in the 2016 New Zealand Excellence in IT Awards.

The winner will be announced at a gala dinner at ITx, New Zealand’s Conference of IT, on July 12.

Company-X was also recently named a finalist in the 2018 Air New Zealand Cargo ExportNZ Awards.

The software specialist is a finalist in the BDO Best Medium Business for Services category.

Company-X clients include large, multi-national, businesses headquartered overseas, for whom Company-X has designed and developed bespoke software solutions.

Company-X won the Services Exporter of the Year award at the Air New Zealand Cargo ExportNZ Awards last year for businesses with export revenue of up to $10 million.

“Our awards showcase a cross-section of some of our most ingenious and innovative businesses in the export sector,” ExportNZ Waikato Manager Sharon Robertson says.

This year, the category winners from the respective ExportNZ regional awards programmes

automatically qualify for entry into the New Zealand International Business Awards (NZIBA), run by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE).

ExportNZ Auckland and ExportNZ Waikato are divisions of the Employers and Manufacturers Association. The 2018 awards will be presented at a black-tie gala dinner on Thursday, June 28 in Auckland.

David and Jeremy thanked the Company-X team after becoming finalists.

“We’re finalists in these awards because of our hard working and dedicated team,” David says.

“We only hire the best and the brightest, that is why we do so well,” Jeremy says.
