Catalyst collaborates with Fairfax to provide an end-to-end service for product development projects


Our business is competitive and fast moving, but Catalyst has consistently provided us with the confidence that technology is an enabler rather than a barrier to our strategic vision and ongoing success.Fiona ReidFormer General Manager, Fairfax Interactive

Supporting new ideas

Catalyst has worked closely with Fairfax since 2002 on a range of sites and products. We built the stuff.co.nz editorial system and have provided managed services with 24/7 support for over 30 servers. We now support various Fairfax systems hosted on AWS.

Our work with Fairfax has diversified in recent years with a strong focus on product development. We provide direction and nous in delivering alternative revenue streams for Fairfax media, and provide an end-to-end service for product development projects. Our comprehensive SLA covers idea generation, priority setting, continuous delivery and release of value added software, and on-call support as needed. Within these product workstreams a range of technologies are used with a focus on Python, Javascript, Drupal and postgres.
