Attended by The Hon. Zed Seselja, Federal Assistant Minister of Science, Jobs & Innovation, the awards dinner was held in Barangaroo Sydney and hosted by PwC. UNIFY was represented at the event by Director & CFO Peter George, Professional Services Manager Samrat Choudhury, and several UNIFY Consultants from our Sydney office including Paul Carmichael, Ryan Crossingham, Jerry Natarajan, Anthony Soquin, Varinder Singh and Priyanka Prasad.

I am extremely proud of the recognition given to UNIFYAdvantage by the Consensus Innovation Award judges. Winning this award is a great achievement for the innovative work that has gone into developing our flagship service offering.

UNIFYAdvantageTM by UNIFY Solutions has been developed to enable organisations, small and enormous, to scale and secure their digital channel interactions to allow participation in the world digital economy by delivering compliance focused, mobile first and dependable digital channels. UNIFYAdvantageTM is a service and platform catalog, offered as a comprehensive solution and enables organisations, even the largest, to rapidly implement the B2C solutions they need to make access to their services easy.

The performance and ongoing potential of the complete solution was self-evident and quite clearly met the Potential and Performance criteria. The judging panel thought that the way UNIFY Solutions’ services have been assembled in the cloud and offered to the market in a consumption model is innovative, compared to other offerings in the marketplace. Hence the Judges confer a Consensus Innovation Award.

UNIFYAdvantageTM is well positioned with strategic partner Microsoft recommending it to some of their largest clients world-wide. The solution offers global coverage with heralded strengths of reliability, scalability, security and privacy only a world-scale digital identity service provider like Microsoft can deliver.

The Awards exist to reward Innovation in Australian and New Zealand industry including manufacturing, engineering, electronics and other sectors and to grow and strengthen Australia’s and New Zealand’s contribution to innovation worldwide. Award recognition can be vital in building the credibility and exposure necessary for locally developed technology to break into new markets. The Consensus Innovation Awards have been developed to provide this credibility by using an open and transparent judging process based on the Consensus Model.

To achieve a Consensus Innovation Award, the technology must be Australian or New Zealand designed and developed and be judged by the invited panel of judges to be Innovative, deliver performance benefits to the user, and have further potential for product or market development. Entrants are invited to present the evidence to the judging panel first through a written and then by direct presentation.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has presented the Consensus Awards twice. In 2017, he spoke about the Consensus Awards:

The Consensus Awards have a history of celebrating some of the most cutting-edge and innovative Australian tech companies, counting world-famous firms Atlassian and WiseTech Global as former recipients. I have no doubt that this year’s recipients will follow in their success.

It was an especially proud moment for the UNIFY team at the Consensus awards dinner to receive this Innovation Award which attests to the innovative and ground-breaking nature of UNIFYAdvantage.

The Consensus Group started in 1999 with a focus of recognising excellence through a range of Awards and Recognition programs. Each program features clearly defined judging criteria, fully independent judges and Awards made on merit with results “Endorsed by Consensus”.
