As we wind down another year, our team recently came together to celebrate the holiday season at our annual Christmas function.

We kicked the day off celebrating our collective hard work this year, followed by a scenic team stroll along the mighty Waikato River.

One of the highlights of the day was the talent show, where our team members unveiled their hidden talents. The stage came alive with soulful renditions of Māori hymns, impressive juggling acts, and festive musical performances.

The celebration continued with engaging team-building activities. A quiz tested our knowledge about New Zealand, Centrix, and each other. The highlight, undoubtedly, was the tower-building challenge, where pasta and marshmallows became the unlikely building materials. This hilarious yet challenging task put our teamwork to the test.

As the day concluded, we want to extend our gratitude to each team member for contributing to the success of this celebration.

Here’s to a successful and prosperous 2024 with our valued partners, clients and team members alike.

We are very pleased to announce our collaboration in the area of machine learning in the industry with the University of Waikato in Hamilton, led by Professor Albert Bifet, director of the Institute of Artificial Intelligence.

The joint project aims to implement AI and machine learning methods in New Zealand based businesses to improve crucial business processes.

We will keep you posted on project updates.


At the start of every year, we go on a team excursion to kick off the new year with some fun (and games!).

After introducing the new trainees to the team, it was time to start the team challange.

The challange to figure out was this: how far can two raw eggs fly through the air and land unharmed when you only have a limited amount of resouces – i.e. a string, clips, selo tape, A3 paper and a couple of baloons. This is our kind of fun.

After a planning phase, several concepts were introduced, whereby the cable railway idea was the favoured by the majorty with the most ambitious goal being 80m.

After an hour of trial and error (with a hard boiled egg!) it got serious. All teams had to prove that their eggs were capable of traveling through the air, unharmed and as far as possible.

It turned out that the favoured concept of using a ”railway cable” had more issues than expected and the method of throwing the eggs, well wrapped, came out top with a reach of 42m.

Well done team Joyce, Reynard und Michael!
