The national winners are benchmarked in the international chapter of the program at the World Business Awards, whereby participants are provided with the unique opportunity to benchmark themselves against the top performers globally.
Masahiko Komoda, Managing Director, said the award recognises Icom’s achievements in the research and development of the IP501H LTE transceiver.
“Icom (Australia) has worked hard to bring into the Australian market the IP501H, and winning the 2018 ABA Product Innovation Award is a reinforcement of the hard work and commitment our team has put into this product.

“With technology rapidly evolving, it is essential that organisations remain ahead of the curve by continuously exploring and embracing new technologies and investing in the education, training and development of their workforce in order to remain competitive,” Australian Business Awards Program Director Tara Johnston said.
“High-performing organisations that have adopted an innovation culture to achieve optimal levels of productivity and performance have been recognised in this year’s ABA100.”
Each year the ABA100 winners are recognised for their commitment to business and product innovation and for their achievements in transforming business practices and end-user experiences.
Organisational participation includes private companies, publicly listed companies, multinational subsidiaries, non-government organisations, educational institutions, franchise systems, partnerships, government departments, government agencies, local government and statutory bodies operating in Australia.
The World Business Awards Framework is utilised as a structured model of assessment that enables the participating organisations to be benchmarked against world-class performance standards.
The framework consists of specialised assessment modules pertaining to the evaluation criteria for each of the award categories. The criteria and sub-criteria provide a robust set of requirements that are used as the methodology for benchmarking and learning among the participating organisations.
Organisations that demonstrate the core values of business innovation, product innovation, technological achievement and employee engagement are recognised via a set of established business and product award categories.
The process culminates in the selection of organisations that implement world-class business initiatives, projects, products and services. The award recipients are recognised as the elite of their industry, earning a place amongst a distinguished group by having their achievements acknowledged and celebrated.
