Comscentre announced as finalist in 2020 ARN Innovation Awards


Comscentre has been announced as a finalist in the 2020 ARN Innovation Awards, which play host to the most competitive and comprehensive selection of leading innovators across Australia.

The enterprise-grade managed network and collaboration solutions specialist was among over 180 organisations nominated in this year’s Awards, joining a stellar line-up of finalists in the category of Customer Value.

Comscentre Executive Director, Cameron Quilty, says to be nominated in the Customer Value category is testament to the commitment their team show in delivering exceptional value to every customer, every day.

“When a business essentially doubles in size from one year to the next, you generally expect to see some strains on the business, and in many cases the customer suffers,” he explains. “To be honoured in this way for the value our team continue to bring to our customers really highlights the laser focus and dedication we’ve had on our customers.”

Quilty says the gravitas of delivering superior value for customers is not lost on any of his team. He points to customer Australia Post as a prime example, saying “here’s a customer who themselves must deliver on a service promise to millions of Australians. Their ability to meet that promise relies on our ability to meet our own obligations”.

“There’s also this added sense of social responsibility to all the rural and remote Australian communities that rely on Australia Post as a central hub for communications, paritcualrly in times of increased isolation,” Quilty added.

Also announced as a finalist in this year’s Awards was Comscentre CTO, Geoff Tyerman, in the Personal Innovation category for Technical Excellence.

Tyerman, who leads Comscentre’s technology direction and selection, is also the technology visionary behind the development of Comscentre’s Enterprise Network Management Platform, ‘OTC’ – One Touch Control.

The platform, which has transformed the way Australian enterprises procure and mange network technologies and multi-carrier network environments has been Tyerman’s passion over the last decade.

“I’m excited to be nominated,” Tyerman confirms, adding “it’s great to see how our customers are using the platform to give real insights into the services Comscentre supplies.”

The Awards, now in their 14th year, celebrate and reward excellence in customer value and innovation across the Australian channel. Find the full line-up of finalists on the ARN website.
