Rocos has won the award for Most Innovative Hi-Tech Software Solution - sponsored by Duncan Cotterill - at the New Zealand Hi-Tech Awards 2021.

Rocos managed to secure the top spot despite strong competition from five other category finalists - Auror, asBuilt Digital, Fuel50, Landkind and Parkable.

“It’s an honour to win the Most Innovative Hi-Tech Software Solution Award, especially with such a high calibre of finalists in our group,” said David Inggs, CEO of Rocos. “I’m extremely proud of how far Rocos has come, our whole team and what we have achieved in the last year.”


“We’re entering a new era - the automation of the physical world. Robots are increasingly capable of performing a wide range of business tasks. But the challenge is defining and assigning the work that robots need to carry out. At Rocos, we’re on a mission to bridge that gap between the physical and digital world.”

The Hi-Tech Awards judges said they were highly impressed with what the team at Rocos has achieved in the past 12 months: “Despite the impact of Covid-19, the team has progressed from a product, a partnership and a team perspective […] After being a finalist last year, Rocos has matured greatly, and truly deserves to be a winner of the Most Innovative Hi-Tech Software Solution.”

Rocos was also a finalist for the Punakaiki Fund Hi-Tech Start-Up Company of the Year award, which was won by film-editing platform provider Moxion.

All of the winners were announced at the NZ Hi-Tech Awards Gala on 28 May 2021. The Hi-Tech Awards received a record number of entries this year. There was also a record crowd in attendance, including Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, The Honourable Judith Collins and Auckland Mayor Phil Goff.

Winners spanned 14 categories, with finalists from a diverse range of New Zealand companies covering all areas of the high tech sector.
