Resonate won the prestigious Impact Award, beating other finalists to win the top gong which recognised exceptional capability for a fast-moving South Australian company competing at a global level.
The award rounds off a hugely successful year for the company who were ranked as one of Australia’s most innovative by the Australian Financial Review, opening its second international office in the US and launching new spin-out company Ping Services across Europe, US and Asia Pacific.
Resonate was set up in 2011 and is a leading provider of specialist consulting services, including acoustics, vibration, structural dynamics, air quality, lighting impact assessments and electromagnetic fields across Australia.
At this time, the Resonate family had 40 staff in offices around Australia, Ireland and the US. Spin out companies include Resonate Systems, who design and build custom software extracting meaning from a range of physical processes and Ping Services, a technology service platform solving industry problems using acoustic principles.
Ping Services had gained international media attention for its product ping monitor which detects wind turbine blade damage. The device is a world first in allowing users to monitor blade health continuously and is currently being commercialised and has achieved first sales.
CEO of Resonate, Matthew Stead said they were thrilled to be recognised by the Impact Awards.
“Seven years ago, we set Resonate up on the foundation of a culture that fosters and rewards exceptional customer service, innovation and intrapreneurship. Our teams work to innovate and improve all they do, in conjunction with our clients, every day. We try new ideas and ways of doing things and fail fast, while maintaining our exceptional customer service to our client base at all times, which is imperative for us.”
