Re3gistry Software

A tool to manage and share 'reference codes'

When is this solution for you?

When you need to manage and share reference codes.


Reference codes can be used in data exchange between applications to uniquely reference some ‘thing’. They can be used to define sets of permissible values for a data field or to provide a reference or context for the data being exchanged. Examples are enumerations, controlled vocabularies, taxonomies, thesauri or, simply, ‘lists of things’.


With the Re3gistry you can provide a central access point that allows labels and descriptions for reference codes to be easily looked-up by humans or retrieved by machines.


Furthermore, it supports organisations in managing and updating reference codes in a consistent way, so that reference codes do not change or simply disappear over time, but all versions of a code remain traceable and properly documented.

What can we offer you?

By using reference codes within the Re3gistry you can:

  • avoid common errors such as entering synonyms or spelling mistakes when filling in online forms
  • facilitate internationalisation of user interfaces by providing multilingual labels
  • ensure semantic interoperability when exchanging data between systems and applications
  • they gain value when widely re-used and referenced
