West Australian agency’s spin-off tech company claims Australian first


The Western Australian agency Landgate has established a spin-off technology company to profit from a new cloud-based land registry service it developed to replace its own ageing paper-based system.

Advara bills its product as “the world’s first — and only — cloud-based, multi-jurisdictional land registration platform” and also claims to be Australia’s first example of a business formed as a spin-off from a government agency.

The fledgling company explains a range of benefits other government land registry agencies can expect to derive from its cloud solution. At present, the WA agency where it was born offers the only testimonial:

“Land Registry as a Service (LRaaS) has brought huge benefits to Landgate and our customers. Processing documents electronically has enabled us to deliver faster turnaround times for customers and has streamlined our business processes.”
