Augview wins APSEA award for Innovation and Commercialisation

The judges saw that the application of tactical spatial information into the realm of asset management was a significant step forward in the efficient management of expensive assets in the utility sector. It is hoped that Augview will continue to make inroads into the international market.

Spatial awards recognise innovative technology

The 2014 Asia-Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards (APSEA) have recognised some of the most innovative new products and technologies in the market, with augmented reality application Augview taking out the Innovation and Commercialisation Award.

This follows Augview’s success at the inaugural New Zealand Spatial Excellence Awards, where the company took out the Supreme Excellence Award and the award for Innovation and Commercialisation.

Following this win, Augview, along with other State and Country Spatial Excellence Awards winners from Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific, made up the finalists who were nominated for the 2014 APSEA Awards.

At a Gala Dinner in Brisbane last night, Augview Business Development Manager Melanie Langlotz accepted the award on behalf of the Augview team.

Augview Chief Executive Officer and Founder, Mike Bundock, said:

“The integration of an augmented reality capability into a mobile GIS application opens up enormous opportunities for utilities, councils and underground asset owners to reduce their operating costs, enjoy efficiency gains and improve health and safety outcomes for their employees.

“We’re thrilled that our technology has been recognised at the APSEAs. Augview is achieving new milestones every week, and the rate at which we continue to develop this technology is rapid.

“We look forward to continuing to provide new and existing customers with this transformative technology which is really changing the way the construction and asset management industries relate to the built environment around them.”

Since being launched into the market, Augview is now being used by utilities, contractors and asset managers all around the world, making the task of spatially locating and identifying underground assets considerably easier, and also enabling in-field capture and maintenance of asset data.

About the APSEAs

 

The APSEAs are unique, in that they are the only awards for the Asia-Pacific region that recognise, at the same event, the excellent achievements of both individuals and organisations engaged in the spatial information industry across the region.

Hosted jointly by SSSI and SIBA, and in conjunction with Locate15, the awards showcase the technical diversity and innovation evident across the spatial industry. For more information on the award finalists for this year, click here.

About Augview

 

Augview Limited is an augmented reality software development company specialising in the visualisation of asset data. The company provides utility and telecommunications companies with augmented reality capabilities - equipping field service personnel with cutting edge functionality which provides direct business benefits.

 

Augview Limited was formed in 2012 in response to a large shift in the IT market. Realising that there were a growing number of businesses who were looking for smart mobile solutions that made their workforce more productive using the hardware and technology that they had already adopted, the company decided to focus on the development of a new augmented reality GIS product.

After researching the mobile hardware market it became apparent that the global workforce was on the verge of a major transformation, shifting away from the office workstation and into something much more agile; smartphone and tablet computing. Augview also realised that many of the limitations which in the past had restricted mobile computing were being solved at a rapid rate. As a result the company decided to use their extensive knowledge of the utility, telecommunications and IT industries to build a product which took advantage of this new technology, and solved problematic issues which have frustrated geospatial businesses for years.

Augview takes NZ’s top spatial award

Augview has taken top honours at the inaugural New Zealand Spatial Excellence Awards, taking out the Supreme Excellence Award and the award for Innovation and Commercialisation in Wellington last night

The Award for Innovation and Commercialisation recognises products or projects that made a significant contribution to the industry through the introduction of a new idea, method, technology, process or application resulting in social, environmental and/or economic benefits.
Augview beat out entries from NZ Post and CoreLogic NZ to secure this award, which then put the company up for the Supreme Excellence Award.
 
The Supreme Excellence Award was selected by the Judging Panel from one of the Organisational category winners that represents the pinnacle of achievement in the spatial industry, bestowed on any project drawn that attains, in the Judges' opinion, the highest level of excellence or achievement.
Augview Chief Executive Officer Mike Bundock said the awards capped off a huge 12 months for the company, following the launch of the Augview application in 2013.
“The integration of an augmented reality capability into a mobile GIS application opens up enormous opportunities for utilities, councils and underground asset owners to reduce their operating costs, enjoy efficiency gains and improve health and safety outcomes for their employees.
 
“We’re thrilled that our technology has been recognised at the NZSEA awards. Augview has had an excellent response in the market since we first launched the product 12 months ago, and our development of the product continues every day.
 
“Today, our application is utilised on smartphones and tablets. Our vision is that in the future, users will use Augview through augmented reality glasses. This year we performed our first augmented reality glasses implementation, and over the next 12 months we will be working to complete the totally new user interface the technology enables.”
 
Since being launched into the market, Augview is now being used by utilities, contractors and asset managers all around the world, making the task of spatially locating and identifying underground assets considerably easier, and also enabling in-field capture and maintenance of asset data.

When you work with a mobile device it is never nice to have a smeary, dirty tablet or smartphone screen. 
With every Augview license you get a cool multipurpose stylus pen now! Comes in blue or green and besides being a tablet stylus, it is also a pen and a highlighter. Our team love those pens because they are so handy when you have to work on a daily basis with a mobile device.

Augview has finally entered the Chinese market! Our Ceo Mike Bundock got invited to Shenzhen in China to present to all the major utility owners and contractors. 
Augview has been received with the most amazement!
 
In order to fit with Chinese tradition we had to change our branding to red and gold since those colours resemble success. Red stands for good fortune and joy, while gold is considered the most beautiful colour.  The Chinese saying, Yellow generates Yin and Yang, implies that yellow is the center of everything. Yellow symbolizes neutrality and good luck and is sometimes paired with red in place of gold.  
 
A while ago we made Augview available in Chinese Language but we now also have got a Chinese language option on our website as well. http://www.augview.net/Chinese.html
Website visitors will also find a link to download Chinese brochures for more information and even the Augview video with Chinese Voice Over.  
 
We couldn't go to China without being equipped with suitable presents for every occasion as per custom. For the general exhibitions we designed a red stylus pen printed with the Chinese Augview logo on it.
