Israel’s Nature and Park Authority (NPA) is a government organization that is taking care of national parks and nature reserves. The NPA is also in charge of protecting our country’s wildlife and endangered species. It coordinates and supervises multiple volunteer initiatives and activities of the citizens.
This government organization manages multiple internal and external software programs that were partially or completely developed by Initech.
We have created a couple of products for the Israel’s Nature and Park Authority:
Internal ERP system for managing Nature and Park Authority websites. The websites’ purpose is the species distribution management and observation and care of wildlife.
Public Red Book platform that takes care of sightings tracking and serves as a repository of knowledge for endangered species. Currently, it covers the preservation of endangered or disappearing species of birds. As a next step, Initech is helping to create such a system for species of plants and reptilians. The big plan is to create a global portal for all Red Book sites.
Basically, we were hired by the NPA to help them kick-off a great project: to start preserving our nature by using a capacity of technology in its full.
