As an award winning acoustic engineering firm, we were further thrilled to be recognised for our patented listening device that is set to solve a $5 billion industry maintenance problem. By measuring acoustic signatures, its technology can record turbine damage and then advise turbine owners.

Additionally, Resonate Consultants also made the list thanks to other exceptional innovation practices via our national consulting business by amalgamating the use of multiple cloud based tech solutions and automation of systems, demonstrating that innovation is truly at the heart of everything we do.

Specifically, the judges look at how valuable the problem is that the innovation is solving, the quality and uniqueness of the solution, and the level of impact that the innovation has had. Inventium assesses internal elements such as innovation culture, strategy, resources and process, which demonstrate a sustainable and repeatable approach to innovation.
