We did it! Just a few hours ago, automed won the top award for Industry Application at the Asia Pacific Information and Communications Technology Alliance Awards (APICTA). We were in disbelief as we took the stage in Taipei, to collect our award.
The competition was fierce with a total of 828 participants representing 16 economies from the Asia-Pacific region. Our victory capped a successful night for Australia, as our national team also took home four merit awards.
Statement from David Edwards – automed CEO and Founder
“We are thrilled and honoured to have received this award. Having just launched this year, we did not expect automed to be recognized as quickly as it has. This shows that we are creating a very special product, which has the potential to offer value across the global livestock supply chain.”
“The growth of the company since our launch in early 2016 has been rapid, but the development of the platform was an incredibly long road. I am proud to accept this award, not just for our dedicated team, but also for Australia and the state of Canberra, which has offered us incredible support along the way.”

The future of automed
We’ve come a long way in 2016. We started the year with a solution for the livestock industry, but we didn’t have a final product ready for commercial application. Now we end the year as a national and global award winner and have a product that is finding customers across the world.
Our ambition was to push the livestock industry forward; to make medicating animals easier and more effective. We’re well on our way to doing just that and look forward to making even greater strides in 2017.
