Our Story:

Pioneering regulatory excellence

Founded in 2015 as a local government initiative, Simpli emerged as a hub for regulatory excellence. Our goal was to streamline and align regulatory functions to make them as frictionless and userfriendly as possible, with a focus on building consenting. Our innovative approach quickly earned us the highest industry recognition:

  • ALGIM Excellence in Innovation Award
  • SOLGM LGFA Award for Transforming Service Delivery
  • LOLA (Linked Organisations of Local Authorities) International Excellence Award

It’s just more proof of our ongoing dedication to promoting regulatory excellence in New Zealand.
