New Zealand Business Registries Sites

The Ministry of Economic Development in New Zealand needed a CMS for their Business Registries websites.

Contracting through a third-party software development house (Jarin Consulting Ltd), Winterhouse Consulting has been primarily responsible for the implementation of Plone for some of the busiest government websites in New Zealand, with over 10,000 unique visitors per day.

After assessing several proprietary CMS products, the Business Registries Branch of the Ministry of Economic Development decided to use Plone to add CMS functionality to their existing, highly successful award winning Business Registries sites. The initial implementation addressed issues such as High Availability, custom (bespoke) Content Types and functionality, and implementation of a site design by web design company seventytwo. On top of this, Winterhouse Consulting designed and implemented a custom Content Publishing framework, which allows the Ministry to manage and deploy new content for the site even in the middle of the busiest part of the day with no disruption.

On top of this framework the Ministry has rolled out Plone to several other sites, and more are still in the planning stages.
