Our mission:
We are often asked what "Jira" means. It is loosely derived from an ancient Hebraic expression from before the invention of religion literally meaning "God... taking care of business" or as commonly expressed "God ... our provider".  The name came out of a lot of discussion involving the faith conviction of the original partners and their families at the start of our business. The name invokes the expectation that we must conduct our lives with integrity and from that base we must strive to do our best on behalf of our customers and clients. Our motivation principal may be summarised as Micah 6:8

Our History:

What is now Jira New Zealand Ltd started off in the early 70's servicing Pye Cambridge fleet radio telephones for trucking companies. In 1990, as Jira Communications Ltd, it assimilated the regional customer base of an international office supplies company which quit NZ during the recession. It was from that company that it inherited time control systems sales and servicing but the focus at that time was still on contract servicing fleet R/T's on repeater systems. That gradually changed as time control systems developed a greater significance leading to a new focus on time & attendance employee recording systems, wages and payroll management and later into taxation and accountancy services. Further involvement in public display clocks resulted in contract supply to Government and corporates in respect of synchronised clock systems as are seen in hospitals, universities, libraries, public buildings and larger corporate entities. With the decision to end R/T communications services, the company name was changed in early 2012 to Jira New Zealand Ltd to better represent the range and geographical extent of the work now being undertaken. In 2017 the tax agency accountancy business services section was separated into a new standalone company called Jira Business Ltd.

Today we have a team of motivated people competent in the many areas of our work interest
