Soprano recognised for innovation with Australian Export Award

Soprano Design is the ICT winner of the 53rd Australian Export Awards

 

We’re wrapping up a fantastic year here at Soprano with the receipt of the prestigious Export Award for both New South Wales and all of Australia for information and communications technology.

Now in its 53rd year, the Australian Export Awards recognise Australian companies engaged in international business that have achieved sustainable growth through innovation and commitment.

The Australian Trade Commission Singapore said in its feature on Soprano’s win that “Judges at the Australian Exporter Awards attributed Soprano’s win to its ongoing commitment to engineering and innovation, and to a mature and confident approach to marketing in the midst of a highly competitive landscape.”

Today, Soprano’s foreign partners include AT&T, Vodafone, EE, and Starhub. More than 70 per cent of Soprano revenues now come from export sales, and 65 per cent of its employees are located in 20 overseas offices in Asia, Europe, and North and South America.

Many industries are turning to Soprano for its award-winning secure messaging technology, Soprano GAMMA, which is increasingly being sought after as a tool to help business be more effective, specifically with the proliferation of bring-your-own-device, or BYOD, mobile devices in the workplace.
