Electoral Commission

We designed and developed New Zealand's electoral roll management system for the Electoral Commission. The system stores up-to-date registration details for all New Zealand voters, and information essential to the running of both national and local body elections.

We have also supplied the core election management system for the last four general elections, as well as a number of by-elections. This system performs MMP calculations and provides detailed voting data to all the major media organisations. In addition, we host the public results website, which plays a crucial role on election night.

New Zealand Post

We developed NZ Post's dynamic and engaging main website. We make sure all its online services and tools work flawlessly, and we're constantly working with NZ Post to provide even more useful features for customers.

We've also provided identity management expertise for NZ Post's RealMe identification system.


We built the NZ Racing Board's website, The site is specifically designed to cope with intense performance requirements during events such as the Melbourne Cup, and to give users an exceptional experience with real-time information.
