The company began as Kingswood Ltd in 1987 and became known for expertise in map based solutions. Increasingly customers have referred to us as “The Mapmechanics” and now the company name reflects this acknowledged area of competence.
We have developed distributor and reseller relationships across the globe to enable us to offer “best of breed solutions” to our customers. We help organisations identify the best solution for their specific application together with consultancy, bespoke development, training and technical support as required.
