Why automation is important for every business in 2020


Technology has advanced to the point where automation practices can be adopted by any organisation, large or small.

Once upon a time, it was only the industry giants who had the resources and access to automation technologies which left smaller players at a disadvantage.

Now, automation tools can deliver greater efficiencies and improve safety operations for businesses of all scale – and it doesn’t necessarily equate to the loss of jobs either.

Ionyx is a Brisbane-based software solutions company delivering automated processes to businesses of all sizes across a range of industries.

These are our core products, available now and with free trials for your business to explore:

Journey Management System (JMS)

Safety compliance is a critical cornerstone of every business in every industry. 

Travelling between jobs and job sites is an essential function in many modern industries as well as traditional services.

This is the most hazardous activity any employer will undertake and JMS helps automate the safety compliance component of driving between jobs.

It is a simple to use app where managers log a journey and set up company travel plans, with the app then setting up checkpoints and fatigue management breakpoints.

If a driver does not reach these checkpoints at allocated times, alerts are sent to managers via SMS, mobile audio and email so investigations can start immediate and emergency support can be rapidly mobilised.

Best of all, it uses the built-in GPS function of mobile devices so it will still work in areas of low reception and the app will automatically shut off all monitoring once the journey is complete.


FIFO site travel can be logistically challenging for companies in the resources (oil, gas, mining and renewables) sectors.

Chartered flights, buses, driving and accommodation all need to be managed for large workforces and there are additional challenges presented by flight delays, cancellations and weather events.

Fly2Work provides an easy-to-use, centralised platform to manage this travel and you have access to round-the-clock support as well.

Online Procurement Services

Sourcing quality, local suppliers can be a time-consuming process.

There are large variables in cost and quality of suppliers and sifting through the listings can soak up valuable time better spent on the job site.

OPS automates this process by allowing you to post a request for suppliers and waiting for them to come to you.

You are supplied with the location, rating and skill level of the suppliers through a tender process and you can monitor the entire supply chain process on one platform.

OPS can be customised and scaled to suit any enterprise and you can import your preferred suppliers as well.


Did you know the average office goes through 10,000 sheets of paper every year?

That is despite our best efforts to go paperless, with invoices, job sheets, spreadsheets and more still being used across most industries.

DigitalForms is the simple, automated way to eliminate this paper use which can lead to data being lost (or falling into the wrong hands) and time-consuming practices.

You can build forms, manage workflows, analyse and build timesheets and much more in real-time in a fully scalable environment.

Our team will convert all of your existing forms as well to further streamline and automate the process so you can hit the ground running.
