The BridgePoint Group Innovation Awards proudly celebrate Australian businesses at the forefront of developing innovative products, services and business models.
In this update, we will profile two companies – TruTeq and Poche Engineering – who are nominees in BridgePoint Groups Innovation Award for 2020.
TruTeq, your trusted wireless technology partner

TruTeq supplies and supports a number ofTelcocommunication networks and banks around the globe. TruTeq is customer-focused and has a long-term commitment to relationships and growth.
All TruTeq products are based on our internally developed GAIN platform. This results in seamless integration between products which brings new value to customers. TruTeq builds the final solution around each customer needs. Such a move to customer-led actions rather than traditional vendors shoehorning their own products into a customers demand, whatever the cost or loss of efficiency. This has led to TruTeq being able to guarantee a high level of customer support, without expensive forced upgrades and customisations which are quick to market, stable and not expensive.
With an R&D niche in mobile fintech, TruTeq develops best of breed mobile banking platforms. Their build-to-customers-needs approach has allowed customers to utilise a technology that is scalable and easily deployable. That technology is TruTeq’s bespoke GAIN platform.
