Catalyst has taken top honors at the 2017 NZ Spatial Excellence Awards, securing the Supreme Excellence Award and the award for Innovation & Commercialisation. Bringing together innovators from the NZ spatial industries, the awards recognise products or projects that made a significant contribution to the industry through the introduction of a new idea, method, technology, process or application resulting in social, environmental and/or economic benefits.
“Trimble’s innovation, called Catalyst, allows positioning measurements to be more cost-effective and accessible to a much wider audience without compromising accuracy” says Hadyn Smith, NZSEA chair.
“Out of all the entries, this promises to have the most impact. It stood out for its immense potential for delivering survey accurate measurement solutions using widely available mobile means – its professional and public reach, therefore, cannot be underestimated” commented the award judges.
