Government Agencies

With more government agencies moving online, we have had to align our infrastructure to meet the NZ Government data sovereignty requirements. We have worked with some government agencies to streamline their existing online/offline processes by building custom cloud applications specifically tailored to their needs.

Energy Industry

With data meters being digitised, we are able to develop apps to capture and report data on a cloud-based application, allowing organisations to monitor multiple regions and meters from a central location, from anywhere and at any time.

Banking Industry

More organisations are recognising that they need to stay ahead of their competitors by adopting the use of innovative technology. Through the use of encryption and other online security measures we can support banking systems.

Telecommunication Industry

With the large adoption of smartphone users, telecommunication companies have had to transition to cloud based solutions to make their customer information accessible to many users, from any location with an internet connection. To solve this, telecommunication companies turn to apps as the solution.

Insurance Industry

With the developments in artificial learning, insurance companies are able to tap into the use of automated algorithmic learning, to capture users online browsing data to calculate insurance cover and ratings. The artificial intelligence industry is growing at a rapid rate which will redefine industries by apps that utilise them in a unique way.

Transport Industry

Transport systems are constantly being improved. An opportunity is available through the use of custom cloud software and tracking technology which can be automated to monitor various transport vehicles at one time, from a central platform giving quick visibility of fleet management.
