ORIX Australia named on 2019 AFR BOSS Most Innovative Companies list for third consecutive year

Fleet services leader wins Best Innovation in the Property, Construction and Transport Industry category

Sydney, AustraliaAugust 9, 2019 – Global fleet services provider ORIX Australia Corporation Limited (ORIX) was honoured to be recognised again as one of Australia and New Zealand’s Most Innovative Companies.
The prestigious annual list, published by The Australian Financial Review and Boss Magazine, is based on a rigorous assessment process managed by Australia’s leading innovation consultancy, Inventium, in conjunction with a panel of industry expert judges. For the first time in 2019, organisations were ranked directly against their peers across ten industry lists.
ORIX Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Reggie Cabal, said, “Being awarded Best Innovation in the Property, Construction & Transport Industry category for our online platform VOOM validates our vision to take innovation and apply it to solve real problems for Small to Medium size businesses (SMBs).” 
VOOM is an automated, easy to use online platform that guides small business owners through the car buying journey allowing them to select and finance a vehicle.
“But the real value of VOOM is its ability to give time back to SMBs,” said Cabal. “Instead of spending hours on unnecessary admin, VOOM consolidates all running costs into one monthly payment that puts business owners in control. We are committed to giving time back to business owners so they can spend less time running their business and more time with their families.”
“We are especially proud to have been included on the 2019 Most Innovative Companies List for the third consecutive year. We have worked hard to create an innovative mindset that is genuinely ingrained into our culture and this successive recognition tells us we have got that right,” said Cabal.
Inventium assessed over 800 nominated organisations across Australia and New Zealand. “We are thrilled to announce the first ever industry specific Most Innovative Companies List. What separated the most innovative organisations from the least , was the involvement of the customer the entire way through the innovation process. Leading innovators also had strong mechanisms in place to recognise the innovation efforts of their staff," said Dr Amantha Imber, Founder at Inventium
