Nuwave Software offer market leading solutions for commercial and public sector facing online portals. Our rapid Development model has delivered financial and technical benefits to a broad range of stakeholders.

Why invest in a Portal?

Globally and across New Zealand, industry has reached a tipping point - more and more business gets done online. As more work gets done online it becomes crucially important for businesses to have a centralised ‘hub’ - a portal - through which they can consolidate their online interactions. Portals ensure that business interactions are trusted, people's needs are at the center of their online digital experience, and that organisations achieve predictable, consistent costs in managing those transactions. Businesses also benefit from having their customers, partners, employees, and suppliers feel safe and that their experience is valued.

In a world disrupted by the COVID19 pandemic, this need is greater than ever before. This is why our solutions power some of New Zealand’s key government and private sector processes.

Nuwave software has crafted this portal framework to meet the specific needs of

  • business customers
  • parter organisations
  • employees, contractors and support staff
  • external technology solutions that support your business.

As a business owner or technology services manager, you will enjoy the sheer simplicity of our design, planning, deployment, and operations of our portal solutions.

We have crafted a framework for digital portals which offers market-leading features that are fit for purpose for the most demanding and engaging government, commercial, and community-oriented needs.

User Experience

Our portals offer a fully responsive user experience. This means that users will see a consistent experience across all devices - desktops, tablets, phones, and other mobile products. Pages, menus, and forms will appear in beautiful proportions regardless of the device being used. This enables your customers to interact with your company anywhere, at any time and on any device.

Security and Privacy

Our portal solutions are designed from the ground up on strong security and privacy principles. Your staff and customers can be confident in our solutions, care, diligence and expertise needed for operating highly secure systems. Here are some key features:

Access and Account Management: By default, our portals provide sophisticated controls for sign-ups when new accounts are created.

For example, we support your organisation’s Know Your Customer (KYC) policies. Accounts can have sub-accounts and you can dedicate sub-accounts, for example, to specific office locations or partner organisations. We cater to multiple locations and transactions that span many functions across multiple partner organisations. Our clients appreciate how simple our account management features are to manage and maintain!

Use our privacy and security features to ensure compliance with your GDPR or Privacy Act obligations.
