2021 | Year That Was | a message from the CEO

2021 saw strong growth in construction industries across Australia and North America, however not without difficulties for our customers who were dealing with supply chain disruption and labour shortages. We were pleased to be working alongside them providing solutions to help improve productivity and navigate challenging conditions.

It was a record year for Spectra QEST, with excellent growth, in which we welcomed some great new customers and saw increased adoption of our products within the existing user base.

It was also the first time in recent years that we entered a major new market, the United Kingdom. We are excited by the opportunity in this underserviced market, in real need of a platform solution that properly integrates field, laboratory and office workflows. Initial response is encouraging having signed market leader Socotec UK as a foundational customer with strong interest from other leading companies.

On the products front we released our first suite of test methods on the web tech stack further improving the user experience of the industry leading QEST Platform, enabling the use of tablets in the laboratory and future proofing our technology.

Thank you to our customers who continue to show their support through the continued use and further adoption of our products.

Thank you to the Spectra QEST team for their hard work and dedication to delivering value for our customers.

Looking forward to 2022.

-Dirk Janek, CEO of Spectra QEST
