Our Story

At Foster Moore™ we're proud to be the world experts in electronic registries.

Founded in New Zealand, we're now a global company with over 20 years' experience in building electronic registry solutions. From the very beginning, Foster Moore™ has been all about registries. In 1996, the New Zealand Companies Office became the first companies registry in the world with a public online register. In 1998 it was the first to allow companies to be incorporated online. Foster Moore™ pioneered the technology to achieve both these firsts.

Since developing the world's first fully-electronic online register, Foster Moore™ has designed and built over 30 different types of registers for governments and executive agencies including Motor Vehicle Traders Registries, Business Entities, Secured Transactions 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: the Catalyst™ The Registry Manager.

Our configurable Catalyst™ 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.

Catalyst™ is able to deliver operational cost reductions, enhanced security, and process improvements, all while complying with the intricacies of local legislation. In short, Catalyst™ 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.
