International book and lecture tour

The Art InstinctThe Art Instinct
When Denis Dutton, of Arts & Letters Daily fame, needed a website to promote his highly successful book The Art Instinct, he turned to us. Our quick turn-around and fast response meant he could keep it up-to-the-minute while on tour, whether in Washington or Wellington.

Webcentre's work is always structurally clear and artistically arresting. I now refuse to let anyone else touch my websites. It's no wonder to me that Webcentre generates such high levels of customer satisfaction. They are a terrific company.
Denis Dutton, Founder and Editor, Arts & Letters Daily

We undertake sophisticated software development, primarily in the Delphi environment, for clients needing smart solutions to tricky technical issues.

For the past ten years, initially as SPIS Ltd and now under Webcentre Ltd, our software has helped underpin the wholesale operations of Foodstuffs (South Island) Ltd, a billion-dollar-plus part of the country's largest grocery distributor supplying the likes of New World, Four Square and Pak'N Save. This has seen the development of a sophisticated series of Delphi-based systems to handle Web and database systems supporting communications and ordering processes between Foodstuffs and suppliers.

We have worked with SPIS since the early 1990s. Throughout our relationship, SPIS have consistently demonstrated their ability to understand our business and translate user requirements into responsive systems "on time and on budget". SPIS are particularly skilled at eliciting user requirements.
Philip Smith, Development Manager - Retail Systems, Foodstuffs (South Island) Ltd

Our software is used to manage the translation and editing process which provides business reports to leading multinational companies in Japan, and we co-ordinate related on-going software development and editing services in New Zealand, Japan, the UK and the Netherlands.

We have thousands and thousands of customers using our packaged software and development components all around the world, from individuals and developers through to major technology leaders and organisations such as IBM, Nokia, US and British Armies, Lockheed Martin, Credit Lyonnais Bank, Bank of Montreal, American Scandia, Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, Honda Austria, Amex...
