BRISBANE, Australia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oniqua MRO Analytics (www.oniqua.com), the leading provider of analytics-based MRO optimization solutions for asset-intensive organizations, today announced it won first place at the 50th Australian Export Awards presented at a gala event in Canberra, Australia on 27 November 2012. Oniqua was also a first place winner and finalist in three categories at the Premier of Queensland Export Awards ceremony held in Queensland, Australia.
Australian Export Award winners demonstrate resilience, ingenuity and a commitment to Australia’s economic future. The Award categories reflect the diversity of the size, industry and variety of Australia’s exporters; and the program rewards and profiles the "best of the best" businesses around the nation. From manufacturing to mining, agribusiness to the arts, tourism and education, businesses across all industries, regardless of size or location are acknowledged.
“Our exporters are doing the state proud,” stated Mr. Campbell Newman, the Honourable Premier of Queensland. “I am pleased that the Australian Agricultural Company, BROWNS English Language School and Oniqua MRO Analytics won their categories. That is a tremendous outcome for those Queensland exporters.”
The Australian Export Awards is a national program that recognizes and honors Australian companies engaged in international business who have achieved sustainable growth through innovation and commitment. The Awards measure businesses against their peers based on the strength of their international growth, marketing and financial strategies.
“On behalf of the entire Oniqua team, we are extremely proud and honored to be the recipients of these first place awards at both the Territory and National level, which acknowledge and recognize our significant achievements in export,” stated Andy Hill, cofounder and CEO, Oniqua MRO Analytics. “These achievements are highlighted by recent global implementations of Oniqua Analytics Solution by many marquee blue-chip clients. Our repeated and consistent success is a result of many years of hard work, a dedicated team and our ability to continually develop and deliver innovative solutions.”

The Awards program is made possible through the collaboration of all the States and Territories, who each independently run their export awards programs. The Awards operates as a two-tier process: exporters first achieve state distinction through their local State and Territory export award program. Local winners then progress as national finalists and are benchmarked against their peers across the country, with winners receiving national recognition for their international success.
Oniqua took first place in the Small to Medium Services category at the Queensland Export Awards, and was a finalist in both the Information & Communication Technology and Minerals & Energy categories. Andy Hill, cofounder and CEO of Oniqua, and Chris Wright, cofounder and President of APAC, Oniqua, were presented the first place award at a ceremony held on November 9th.
The Premier of Queensland's Export Awards is an annual program that is open to all Queensland exporters, large and small, regional and metropolitan. Exporting companies are renowned for being leaders in seeking opportunities, leading with innovation and creating jobs for Queenslanders.
After winning first place at the Premier of Queensland Export Awards, Oniqua was progressed as a national finalist at the Australian Export Awards, where it won first place in the overall Small to Medium Services category. Andy Hill, cofounder and CEO of Oniqua, and Peter Jacob, CFO of Oniqua, were presented the first place award at a recent gala event in the Great Hall at Parliament House in Canberra on Tuesday 27 November 2012.
