GeoSmart is recognised as a finalist in the 2009 Vero Excellence Awards

As a great way to end 2008, GeSmart has just been advised that they are a finalist in the 2009 Vero Excellence in Business Awards.This is a prestigious Award sponsored by Vero, BDO Spicers and National Business Review. Organisers said that there was a record number of entries and the quality of finalists was a notch higher than previous years.

Mike Watson, chief executive of the New Zealand Business Excellence Foundation said “In finalists we look for organisations that demonstrate they have robust processes in place to address key business and stakeholder/customer requirements. The delivery of products and services should be based on sound processes and the business should demonstrate clear direction and specific objectives to achieve success. Most importantly we look for evidence of success via the outputs and outcomes from business processes.”

GeoSmart General Manager, Phil Allen said, “This is an excellent start for what may well be one of the most exciting years in GeoSmart’s 30 years in business, with a number of major product launches  to be announced early in the year. We are delighted to be recognised for our work and this is a significant pat on the back for the entire team at GeoSmart who are passionate about our business and the benefits we are delivering to businesses and consumers.”

The entries are starting to come in for the Location Innovation Awards

Within half an hour of the Location Innovation web site going live and the Geekzone Forum going up, we had our first 2 entries into the awards and are now up to 5 entries in the first 36 hours which is really exciting.

The web based media have also given us great support with stories in The Channel, The National Business Review, Scoop, Reseller News,, Tone Magazine and PC World.

We have sent the release to lots of newspapers around the country so that everyone gets a chance to participate and are also working on getting the message out to the education community, because we are very keen for students to get in on the act and even have a prize for the best student entry.

Tomorrow we are doing presentations to students at the Raffles College of Design & Commerce and Massey University.
