We’re coming to Auckland

Natalie Scott Interpret Geospatial Solutions

New Zealand’s most awarded geospatial consultancy for 2015 is opening an office in Auckland’s CBD.  

The decision to expand into Auckland reflects Interpret Geospatial Solutions recognised excellence and innovation.  “It’s an obvious move for us” says Interpret’s Managing Director Steve Abley, “People want to work with us and that means we need to be local”.  Interpret provides geospatial solutions for central and local government as well as large companies and not for profit groups. 

The office will be led by Aucklander Chris Morris.  “Chris is an amazing talent and we’re privileged to have a person of his calibre adding strength to an already proven team” said Abley.  Morris has a background in consulting and web based GIS technologies with particular application to infrastructure assets.  Abley explains “This is critical for Auckland because there’s a need to manage the built environment better.  Great spatial information either through data capture, sharing or analysis enables better decisions”. 

Interpret is expanding and other staff have been attracted to Auckland’s new offering.  This includes New Zealand 2015 Spatial Excellence - Young Professional of the Year award winner, Natalie Scott (pictured).  Natalie is returning to Interpret after spending the last six months travelling.  Abley is very proud of Natalie and the wider team’s ability.  He says “Natalie is an amazing individual and Interpret is poised for even greater success”.  Scott too has a background in geospatial infrastructure having recently provided web based analytical and integration technologies to a fibre telecommunications company. 

The Auckland team has significant growth plans and Interpret has invested in central city premises at 57 Fort Street.  Abley says the company is actively recruiting and in the next few months Interpret will have a national staff of about 20 along with a network of trusted partners.  “We’re in demand implementing off-the-shelf geospatial applications, innovative geospatial data analytics and more customised solutions reflective of a specific organisation’s unique requirements”.  

Abley explains “Doing spatial and thinking smart isn’t necessarily expensive.  But doing nothing and not thinking, is”.  The Interpret team is excited at the opportunities Auckland provides.
