About Us

Our Story

At Foster Moore, we deliver the world's most trusted registers.

Starting with our work for the New Zealand Companies Office over 20 years ago, Foster Moore has accumulated unparalleled experience and expertise in registry design, development and operations. The creativity we brought to business problems and the innovation we sparked in New Zealand has been the foundation on which we have achieved global success. Few other firms are as synonymous with government registries or known for transforming them as efficiently and effectively.

Since developing the world's first fully-electronic online register, Foster Moore has delivered registries in 21 jurisdictions globally. We have designed and built over 30 different types of registers for governments and executive agencies including Business Entities, Secured Transactions, Occupational, Trade Mark, Motor Vehicle Traders Registries and highly complex Radio Spectrum Management Registers.

Our registry experience is unsurpassed internationally. We have a deep understanding of the unique complexities of electronic business registries and our people are known as thought-leaders in this field.

We've also worked in partnership with the Asian Development Bank on projects to deliver best-in-class, first-world systems to support developing countries like Papua New Guinea, Lesotho, and the Solomon Islands.

Our Product

With the benefit of such deep experience in registry design and development, we've developed our own dedicated registry software solution: Verne® - Catalyst Cloud.

Our configurable Verne® templates are designed to meet the specific needs of different jurisdictions. This means we're able to run projects in markets as diverse as New Zealand, the South Pacific, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and North America.

Verne® - Catalyst Cloud is able to deliver operational cost reductions, enhanced security, and process improvements, all while complying with the intricacies of local legislation. In short, Verne® can help you streamline even the most complex project, through our specialist Catalyst Adoption Methodology® (CAM).

But every successful project still starts with a conversation. Get in touch to arrange a meeting with one of our consultants.
