Illuminance shines light on diversity

Illuminance Solutions is a Perth-based advisory and consultancy service delivering information technology-based solutions to clients in the non-profit sector.

When it comes to sources of its own success, the company acknowledges its people above all else, and has been recognised for this with the Rising Stars diversity award.

Diversity is a key attribute of the Illuminance workforce, which has grown from two to 30 as the company’s order book has expanded over the past five years.

In addition to Australia, its personnel hail from countries including India, China, Malaysia, Norway, Sri Lanka, Germany and many more.

Illuminance also fosters strong female representation and has worked with The University of Western Australia to recruit Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth.

Its workers have a wide diversity of ages and include several people with disabilities. 

Illuminance says diversity is not only the right thing to do, but good for business. 

The company was founded in 2012 and went on to specialise in catering to the non-profit sector after recognising a need for improved business solutions here.

It has since been recognised as a Tech for Social Impact partner with Microsoft, won a 2019 Microsoft Global Partner of the Year award, and developed a wide range of technology systems using the Microsoft cloud for clients including Autism WA, Nulsen, People Who Care, Master Builders Association WA and several Aboriginal organisations.

As its client base has tripled and revenue almost doubled in the past five years, Illuminance has recruited workers who add to its knowledge base and commercial success.

Products whose success these workers have contributed to include the AvantCare platform, which has assisted organisations responding to National Disability Insurance Scheme changes, and the Aboriginal Trust Management System, which caters to organisations responsible for distribution and investment of funds from native title claims.

Several of these products have been recognised with technology industry awards.

Following its Perth-based success, Illuminance is now targeting expansion into Adelaide and Brisbane.
