Sydney, Australia – OCTOBER 9, 2020 | ORIX Australia Corporation Limited is honoured to once again be recognised as one of Australia’s most innovative companies. Today, ORIX was named for the fourth year in a row as one of the most innovative companies in the AFR BOSS Most Innovative Companies list for 2020.
ORIX was honoured to rank #5 on the property, construction and transport companies list, from more than 600 nominated organisations across Australia and New Zealand.
ORIX achieved this year’s award for its innovative ORIX Share pool car management system, making it simple for businesses to manage their shared vehicles across various locations.
ORIX Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Reggie Cabal said “Carpooling is a well-established concept re-imagined for today’s working environment with ORIX Share. Giving clients the flexibility to reduce their fleet size is a terrific result for them. ORIX Share is another example of our ability to disrupt our industry for our clients’ benefit,” he said.
Mr Cabal explained ORIX is constantly looking to create flexibility for their clients whilst identifying ways to optimise fleet operations and performance.
“Over the last five years, our focus has been on innovating our product and service offerings. We do this by taking on board feedback from clients and staff. We also pay close attention to what’s happening in fleet management overseas. This allows us to our clients’ changing needs.”
Additionally, Mr Cabal noted ORIX’s focus on providing flexibility to clients means the business has been able to develop extremely user-friendly technology, that gives them real time visibility over fleet usage and costs. “This has allowed us to move beyond traditional fleet management,” he said.
Mr Cabal noted innovation is embedded in ORIX’s DNA, not just for major initiatives, but in business-as-usual work as well.
“Innovation comes in different sizes, both big and small. It underscores our ability to respond to change and improves our day-to-day operations, making it easier for our staff to do their jobs and for clients and suppliers to engage with us. In a year such as 2020, an innovative approach has never been more important.”
