Optus Award

Leader in connectivity solutions, Powertec Telecommunications, has been shortlisted in one of Australia’s longest-standing business awards program - the prestigious Optus My Business Awards.

Shortlisted as a finalist in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Business of the Year category at the 2018 Awards, Powertec was founded in 1995 on the Gold Coast, and has grown into an international operation across Australia and New Zealand.

“We are going from strength to strength this year,” said Powertec CEO Raymond Smith, whose team has recently introduced a world-first cloud-based Internet of Everything ecosystem, myinsight.io, that has the potential to revolutionise the agricultural industry and beyond.

“What is incredible, over the 23 years we have been in business, are the changes across our industry and also the appetite for better, more robust products and services across a large span of our country.”

“Being shortlisted for awards and acknowledgements is a fantastic nod to our entire team and 1,000 strong dealer network and we are pleased to be recognised for the reputable work that we do.”

Adam Zuchetti, editor of My Business, said it is another big year for Australia’s longest-running SME awards program, with a record number of submissions this 2018.

“Small and medium-sized businesses are undeniably the backbone of our nation’s economy, as well as the heart of our local communities. It is wonderful to be able to recognise them on their achievements in service delivery, product innovation, workplace excellence and commitment to sustainability.”

“Every year, both the number and the quality of submissions we receive for the Optus My Business Awards gets better, making it an ever-more impressive feat for those stand-out businesses who are named finalists. Our judges really have their work cut out for them in trying to select this year’s winners!”

The Optus My Business Awards, which covers 28 categories, acknowledges best practice within a particular industry sector, as well as individual business leaders, excellence in customer service and achievements in innovation, corporate social responsibility and workplace culture.

Winners from company related categories will be shortlisted for the highly coveted Business of the Year Award and will be announced at a black-tie awards dinner on Friday, 9 November at The Star, Sydney.
