Reseller News is proud to announce the finalists of an enhanced Innovation Awards in 2022, housing a record-breaking number of submissions in what will be the largest celebration of ecosystem excellence in delivering transformative customer solutions across New Zealand. 

Representing the entire New Zealand ecosystem, 224 finalists (including 60+ individuals) make the shortlist from a pool of over 80 organisations and more than 250 nominations, spanning partner, start-up, telco, vendor and distributor businesses. 

Reseller News congratulates Securecom on becoming a finalist in 5 categories,” said Cherry Yumul, Vice President of Channel at Foundry. “This is a stunning statement from the market. Irrespective of ongoing societal challenges and worsening economic conditions, New Zealand continues to power forward unperturbed — the ecosystem has once again raised the bar to set new levels of innovation.

“Enormous credit to the market-leading companies and individuals continuing to press ahead in helping customers innovate at pace – despite the notable difficulties – which once again demonstrates the depth of transformation taking place across the country. Congratulations Securecom, nothing can stop your pursuit of excellence.” 

In 2022, Innovation Awards will honour the channel across eight categories, spanning Partner Innovation, Tech Innovation, NZ-wide Innovation, Start-up Innovation, Personal Innovation, Vendor Innovation, Distributor Innovation and Hall of Fame. 

In streamlining the program, the aim is to increase focus on the pacesetters of the local market, those revving up the innovation engine and powering ahead in the delivery of transformative solutions and services. 

Reflective of a diverse technology network, finalists range from large-scale multinational consultancy firms to emerging start-ups, alongside leading system integrators, managed service providers and solution consultants, plus cloud specialists, independent software vendors, boutique agencies and application developers. This is in addition to channel-centric vendors, telecommunications providers and supply chain experts. 

Within this standout group, finalists are located across the entire country and represent all states and territories, spanning New Zealand. 

Collectively, Innovation Awards in 2022 stands tall as the leading forum for setting the industry benchmark for ecosystem excellence across New Zealand. 

The winners will now be selected by an executive panel of industry judges – acknowledging creativity, innovation, and excellence – before being announced at a celebration dinner at Cordis, Auckland on Thursday 27 October.
