DENVER, Dec. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Oniqua MRO Analytics (Oniqua), a global leader in analytics based MRO optimization for asset-intensive organizations, today announced that the company has been named in the 2013 Brisbane Innovative Scorecard as one of the top 12 innovative enterprises headquartered in Brisbane, chosen from a field of over 300 companies.
The 2013 Brisbane Innovation Awards recognized businesses that responded to tough economic conditions and focused on retaining market share through the development of innovative strategies inspired by customer motivations by innovating to gain market differentiation; innovating for customer simplicity; and innovating for customer transaction efficiency.
In addition to its leading edge technology, Oniqua was recognized for the company-wide collaborative innovation program that informs continuous improvement of its analytics solution, Oniqua Analytics Solution (OAS), the methodologies used to help customers optimize their maintenance operations, and process excellence across the organization.
To foster innovative thinking across Oniqua's global teams, employees use social enterprise tools to share ideas, collaborate on refinement and generate new solutions. The company also has a formal innovation initiative to keep employees across roles and functions informed and engaged in contributing to the process.
"As new ideas emerge and percolate, we monitor the ones that get the most traction, and then look at taking them to the next level," said Andy Hill, Oniqua's CEO and co-founder. "It allows us to easily and efficiently capture ideas and filter out the ones that end in the creation of a new product, service or process that enhances our customer service, company culture and market position."
The 2013 Brisbane Innovation Scorecard documents how the city's leading enterprises successfully responded to tough economic conditions, competed in international markets and retained or grew market share by improving outcomes for their customers. The survey finds businesses that make innovation a priority do so to increase the value of their products and services to their customers.
Almost 40 percent of the companies surveyed reported investing in one or more significant innovations in the past three years; firms that innovated across a broader range of their business operations achieved better overall performance.
"Oniqua is more than analytics software and MRO optimization. Ultimately, what our customers are investing in is the value our software and services add to their businesses, and working with a trusted partner," said Hill. "Our ability to deliver value and customer success comes from our deep-seated culture of collaboration and innovation. That's why we're excited and proud that Oniqua has been recognized as one of the top innovative companies in our home city."
