Pioneering software named in 'Smart 100' Index

The growth in the Resources industry places enormous pressure on the aero-medical evacuation service in WA. Oil and Gas employees have increased from 3,200 in 2009 to 17,860 in 2013 thanks primarily to new construction and production programs on the North West Shelf of WA.

Being able to accurately plan in advance for the volume of medical needs, aviation assets, infrastructure and equipment has become an essential ingredient in ensuring continued improvement to patient outcomes including patient survival.

We contracted the University of Adelaide’s Mathematical Modelling team to develop Predictive Modelling Decision-Making Tool software.  This innovation joined the Anthill Smart 100 list at an event in Sydney on Friday 30th May.  In October 2013, Aspen was awarded the title of Innovation Champion by Adelaide Research & Innovation for the same software solution.

The SMART 100 Index was created by Anthill Magazine in 2008 to identify and rank Australia’s 100 most innovative products, proving to be one of the largest surveys of its kind in Australia.

“In true Anthillian style, the SMART 100 is an ever-evolving, ever-improving experiment,” said Anthill founder and Editor-In-Chief James Tuckerman.

“It identifies and ranks new Australian innovations by applying a combination of crowdsourcing, collaboration and common-sense. We employ the judgement of ‘mavens’ and readers.

“Unlike your average awards program, we don’t lock a panel of expert adjudicators in a small room. Neither do we demand a thorough analysis of each applicant’s P&L statement. We don’t even request an historical snapshot of ‘runs on the board’ or commercial achievements.

“This is because innovation is future focussed. It is about identifying and solving problems in ways that will change the way we live, do business and think.”
