We invest hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in researching, learning, testing and developing new products with new technologies.
Innovation lab activities
Products in development as part of the research and innovation programme include:
- data quality tool Veracidata
- A mobile HR app for better work conversations
- a range of chatbots, incorporating cognitive technologies, for competitions, booking, ordering, FAQs and more.
Our chatbot for Snowcentre was one of the first Facebook Messenger bots in New Zealand. This bot was a direct result of early innovation lab explorations of chatbot technology.
Hackathons and hackfests are another way we pursue innovation, providing the opportunity to solve problems and explore ideas using the latest technologies - like cognitive services, augmented and mixed reality, chatbots, and voice and language understanding.
