About Us

Vision Software is a multiple award-winning software development company, specialising in the Corporate Real Estate and Commercial Property Management sectors in both New Zealand and Australia. Vision also supplies New Zealand's only specialised Body Corporate Management software solution (to the New Zealand market only).

Vision Computing was founded in 1988 by John Nottingham (BVSc), who developed New Zealand's first Windows-based Veterinary Practice Management solution. VisionVPM became the most comprehensive integrated veterinary practice management system in Australasia and was purchased by Provet in February 2007.

With a background in the IT industry since 1980, Mike Dennehy joined Vision in 1994 and helped to develop and market Vision's first property solutions - Real Estate Manager and Property Manager. These two products found ready acceptance in the real estate and property management industry, and helped Vision to become the market leader in both sectors in New Zealand.

In 1997 Vision was named Best New Business in the Tauranga Regional Business Awards.

In 1998 Vision restructured, sold the Real Estate Manager software and commenced development of two further property solutions - VisionCPM (Commercial Property Manager) and VisionBCM (Body Corporate Manager). Property Manager was upgraded and became VisionRPM (Residential Property Manager), and Vision's trading name became Vision Software, to more accurately reflect our core business.

In 2000 we welcomed Baden Turley as a Director. Baden came with a strong background in accounting, real estate and commercial property management, and helped us to develop and refine our flagship VisionCPM solution.

Vision Software Australia Pty Limited was incorporated in 2004, we employed Preeti Bajaj as National Manager Australia and set up our first office in St Leonards, Sydney.

In December 2004, Vision sold its residential property management software interests to Console New Zealand Ltd, and no longer operates in the residential market.

In April 2005 Vision Computing changed its company name to Vision Software Limited, in line with our trading name.

In October 2005 Vision won the prestigious award of Best Business - Service Industry in the Westpac Regional Business Awards, and received a special Judges' Commendation for a business with outstanding potential.

In March 2007 Baden Turley left the business and ownership is now shared between John Nottingham and Mike Dennehy. In 2007 we also formally launched our newest flagship product: VisionCRE, a comprehensive integrated Corporate Real Estate solution. We have continued to develop VisionCRE - click here for more details.
In February 2008 we appointed Diane Stanbra as Business Development Manager, New Zealand and opened an office in Auckland. Diane is responsible for business development and some account management in the New Zealand market, and Mike Dennehy manages the Australian market.

Vision Software continues to grow, with renewed focus on developing domestic and international markets for our Corporate Real Estate and Commercial Property Management software solutions. Vision currently employs over 20 staff, situated at our offices in Mount Maunganui and Auckland.
