CHRISTCHURCH, NZ – November 9, 2018 - Seequent,
a global leader in the development of visual data science software and collaborative technologies, has won the Supreme
Award at the 2018 New Zealand International Business Awards, after earlier winning the ANZ Best Medium Business Award.
Graham Grant, COO of Seequent says, “Seequent is thrilled to be named as a winner in the 2018 New Zealand International
Business Awards alongside a stunning group of New Zealand companies. We’re immensely proud of our dedicated and
passionate team around the globe who help our customers ultimately make better decisions about their earth, environment

Seequent develops data visualisation and geological modelling solutions that enable those in the mining and minerals,
civil engineering, environmental, and geothermal energy industries to extract valuable insights from complex raw data.
Seequent’s 3D modelling tools and technology are widely applied across industries and projects, including road and rail
tunnel construction, groundwater detection and management, geothermal exploration, resource evaluation and estimation,
and subterranean storage of spent nuclear fuel.
The judges were impressed with how well Seequent portrayed the emerging story of New Zealand on the global stage –
advanced technology, focussed on making the world better, operating in a high-value niche and executed with precision,
tenacity and ambition.

“The United States has one of the largest infrastructure industries in the world,” says Daniel Wallace, General Manager
of Civil & Environmental at Seequent. “There are real infrastructure challenges in the US, with a significant amount of
infrastructure to be built, rebuilt and maintained. Aging infrastructure is something the civil engineering industry has
been tasked with, and our solutions can help through digital innovation by connecting underlying geology to engineering
