NGIS plots a course for ongoing growth

BURSWOOD-BASED technology firm NGIS Australia believes a commitment to innovation has driven its success and cemented its position as a market leader in the spatial industry.

NGIS is a growth company focused on market development, diversification and systems improvement, with turnover and gross profit in 2007-08 tipped to more than double that of four years ago.

NGIS prides itself on being different, breaking away from the operating paradigm typical of consultancies within the spatial industry to become one of Australia's leading providers of location-based technology solutions.

Since its inception in 1993, the company has expanded from its Perth head office to now employ 85 staff in Perth, Sydney, Brisbane and Hong Kong.

Its technical services range from geospatial data management and analysis, to strategy and system design and integration, and design and marketing communications.

As part of its wider diversification philosophy, NGIS set up integrated communications consultancy, Creative Nature Communications, in 2005.

This complemented the company's software development capabilities with multimedia, graphic design and corporate communications services.

iintegrate Systems, the software development arm, was established in 2005 for ongoing development of the award-winning GeoSamba to ensure it remained an innovative leader in the web-mapping market.

Over the past two years, NGIS has experienced significant growth and profitability, attributed to a shift in business focus and operating structure to support the development of the consultancy and the professional services it offers.

It has since severed formal ties with software vendors and this vendor-independence led to strong growth for the company, allowing consultants to work on a wider variety of projects and the giving it the scope to make unbiased recommendations on what software best met client needs.

NGIS also recognises that further growth could be generated by combining its niche spatial technology expertise with the broader business and skills of an IT provider.

An alliance was therefore formed with CSC, which has seen the two companies work successfully at the Department of Land Information.

Today, NGIS is working with a number of industry giants, including BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, Chevron Australia and Great Southern Ltd.

In 2006, NGIS won the WA Industry and Export Awards and the Telstra Business Award, and in 2007 was successful in four Asia-Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards, including the prestigious JK Barrie Award chosen from the winners of all categories.
