Bidhive wins outstanding Queensland technology award at 2021 AIIA iAwards

July 7, 2021

Australia’s peak industry representative body for innovation technology, the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) announced Bidhive as the winner of the 2021 Queensland iAwards.

The awards unearth, recognise and reward excellence in Australian innovation and are Australia’s longest running and most broadly scoped innovation recognition program, promoting excellence in the Australian digital technology ecosystem.

The 28th annual ceremony recognising the Queensland entrants took place on 23rd June at its second ever fully virtual award ceremony. The entry process for the 2021 iAwards followed the widely popular 2020 entry process, with entrants submitting a three-minute pitch along with their submission, for what was called “The BIGGEST Pitch”.

Bidhive CEO and Co-Founder Nyree McKenzie highlighted how Bidhive is creating opportunities to improve transparency in government spending while enhancing the bidding capability and capacity of businesses of all sizes. Her pitch demonstrated Bidhive’s closed loop cycle, and how the platform removes information silos that generate efficiencies and failed bids, while facilitating bidding best practice to measurably improve win ratios.

AIIA CEO, Ron Gauci, said: “The innovation demonstrated at this year’s iAwards is second to none and has amazed the judging panel once again. A huge congratulations to the winners this year as they are brilliant examples of individuals and organisations who are making a difference and have the potential to create positive change for the community. All entrants deserve recognition for their hard work and brilliant ideas. We want to thank them for their continued commitment to furthering Australia’s capability in innovation technology.

“Queensland is coming last on the digital inclusion index and as the ICT Industry is key to Australia’s economic recovery, the AIIA is proud to unearth some of the state’s best innovations. The winners of the 2021 iAwards continue to reflect the immense talent in Australia and the largely untapped potential Australia’s ICT sector holds.” Mr Gauci said.
