Software User Group

The New Zealand interRAI Software User Group provides an operational forum for the use of interRAI software.

The purpose of the group is to:

  • support consistent use of the national platform
  • provide an operational link between the software use and the software host service
  • be the communication channel between the wider users and the Governance Board and
  • develop and recommend prioritised enhancements to the software.

The group operates under the overarching governance of interRAI in New Zealand, and within the framework of its terms of reference and policy.
