Imezio Limited was established in 2005 and operates from Porirua, North of Wellington, New Zealand. Our operations are twofold:
Creation and delivery of
turnkey trusted third party services
Basic and applied research in the domains of
autonomous intelligent systems
Imezio prides itself in its capability to:
Identify problems that are met by niches,
Develop the right solution on its own funds,
Deliver the solution as a
Under a contractual agreement that clearly sets out the roles and rules for all parties.
To us, the definition of the right solution is a solution that is timely for the market, that actually solves problems, that is economically priced to benefit the users, and that is designed to accompany the niche through its logical evolution at no additional cost.
We sell results. For the last 12 years we have been paid on results, exclusively.
Read us properly: we aren't body shoppers, we don't sell time, neither our's or others'.
Our current commercial investments focus on the
programmes led by New Zealand, Australia, UK, and Europe. Imezio has developed a food service business centric mediation platform designed to provide food service businesses, food safety verification organisations, and regulatory agencies, immediate results while slashing the compliance costs:
Imezio' services have been trusted many million times by customers of the tourism, dairy, and banking industries. Imezio's forward thinking approach is the ground for long lasting business relationships that usually last well over 7 years.
This trust encompasses large organisations who have agreed to complement our core capabilities, e.g. Downer and Datacom (nationwide deployments and maintenance), KensingtonSwan (legal), NetSweeper (cloud services).

is Imezio's take for the growing need for a mediation platform between food service businesses, food safety verifiers, and regulatory agencies.
By focusing on the desired outcomes and each actor's processes and data requirements, the KeepCool® mediation platform effectively creates a virtuous circle between the actors, and:
Supports policy making, implementation, and reviews,
Allows to compare or contrast information across regions, across food service tiers, across verifiers,
Reduces the compliance costs for all parties.
Over the last 12 years, Imezio has demonstrated its expertise in the creation of visionary mediation platforms, that handle complex data ownership schemes and protect the rights of all parties involved; Imezio has acted as a
Trusted Third Party
for a range of industries in New Zealand: tourism, dairy, banking, telecommunications. Examples include:
B2B brokering platform dedicated to the liquidation of used food processing plants,
Secure banking and browsing terminals in sensitive public areas,
Anonymised data aggregation and reporting,
Pay per use, and shared revenue services.
In all these projects Imezio designed the business processes, developed the platform, operated the service end-to-end, and kept upgrading the application, all for a predictable fee.
Beside mediation platforms, Imezio designs, customises, manufactures, and operates small series of proprietary embedded devices. These days the buzz word is IoT devices.
We have been doing IoT all around New Zealand since 2005
. On multiple occasions, our IoT devices were the mediation platform for our trusted third party services. They are designed and maintained with all the required rigour.
Our latest creation is a line of
associated with a cloud service that assists Food Service businesses with meeting their regulatory obligations.
We are open to collaborate with manufacturers interested in integrating their devices with the
mediation platform, as well as to license and rebrand some of our equipment, protocols, and cloud services.

Our approach is energetic and enthusiastic.
We are straight talkers and straight writers.
We call a spade a spade and we write accordingly. At the core of our contracts are plain English paragraphs that are tailored to meet our customers' goals, and set the foundations for long lasting constructive relationships.
We are flexible - within reason.
The brains will bend as much as needed to solve real problems and mitigate the risks. Real problems have a solution; often the environment is the reason why no decent solution can be identified.
We are structured.
Our solutions are end-to-end and have the well-known no-nonsense backbone that ensures the tail doesn't wag the dog:
1. Environment >
2. Processes >
3. Resources >
There's no point in selecting tools when the resources are not defined, or the processes don't exist, or the organisation is not ready to accept the change. There are enough excellent thoughtful references out there that back our stance.
However, it makes a lot of sense to delegate the management of the processes, resources, and tools to a trusted third party in order to overcome internal difficulties. That is the value we offer.
We are dependable and efficient.
We write what we'll do, and we do what was written. And we do it fast.
Instinct over intuition and automation: our research
User-friendly interface, intuitive software, and automation, are all needed to make a piece of software look smart, useful, and powerful. However none of that is nearly enough to make the software intelligent. What is not programmed is off the menu, whatever the amount of hype and gloss applied to the product.
What's intelligence? What are we expecting from our smart phones, search engines, and social networks? We expect that they duplicate our intellectual schemas. We expect they save us from our shortcomings. But they don't. And there is no limit to our stupidity, is there?
Can user-friendliness and automation fake intelligence? No. That's the problem some of us have tackled for the last 20 years.
Every day, in every situation, we gauge others' intelligence by observing their behaviours: how people do what they do, how much planning or tact was applied before the action... This is a universal measure that transcends languages and borders.
It is true of the whole animal kingdom too: think about your feline or canine companions, when you feel understood, and when you feel you understand them. Beyond our daily routines, several million years of cooperation and joint evolution in a shared natural environment left durable imprints in our DNAs and brains. No software compares with the intelligence and the behavioural flexibility of a cat, a dog, an ant, or any other animal species.
At Imezio we believe that the key to creating digital assistants that deserve their name is to create software organisms whose behaviours we understand instinctively, and that we recognise as purposeful and symbiotic.
It is hard work and no amount of GPU and script-kiddy-AI will do the job.
Where are we at?
We built our first software animal-like organisms in 2013, and we keep working at generating species and new behavioural repertoires. Our current research focuses on:
Creating a DNA-like machinery to speed up the generation of new species in more complex environments,
Building fast modular environment simulations in order to increase our ability to tackle more real life problems,
Relating environment, behaviours, and connectome through mathematics, in order to engineer fit for purpose connectomes.

new Food Safety guidance
is out New Zealand!
We believe in what we do and how we do it.
We are open to discuss with any local and territorial authority of New Zealand, to provide a customised version of
