Digital identity

DIA validated the feasibility for small businesses to use the "One Time Identity" concept (biometric linking to validated passport data) through third party identity service providers to verify their customers’ identities digitally as part of their AML/CFT obligations.

Data

Data Ventures works with the major telecommunication companies in New Zealand to access the anonymised sum total of mobile devices down to suburb in New Zealand, across different time periods. From there, they use Statistics NZ expertise to develop population estimates that represent all of New Zealand's population - including visiting, residing, and population who don't own a mobile phone. This allows a frequent, up to date breakdown of population to be used in decisions around demand and utilisation. This helps with emergency planning, tourism, transport, biosecurity, accommodation, construction, energy, education and retail industries.

Every time you donate to a charity, school or religious organisation, you are eligible for a 33% donation rebate, but most Kiwis never bother with the paperwork. Fund a Future makes it easy to claim back your rebate and put your share to good use – whether that means regifting it to charity or keeping it for yourself. 

Digital inclusion

Nobody wants to think about dying – but sadly, it’s something that will happen to all of us. And when you’re no longer here, there’s a smart Kiwi business that’s making life a lot easier for those you leave behind.

Optimising government payment processes

The use of cheques in New Zealand has been decreasing over time, but a number of individuals and organisations continue to use them, despite rising costs and an ever wider variety of alternative payment methods. This has the potential to create problems, as the declining use of cheques is undermining the overall sustainability of the infrastructure and systems that support cheques.
