We are Aligned Assets
Aligned Assets was formed in 1996 by Carl Nunn, later joined by Phil Gee in 1997 and Mike Saunt (now of Astun Technology) in 1998, who all met at MapInfo Corporation (now Pitney Bowes MapInfo). Originally working as MapInfo resellers and Geographical Information System (GIS) developers, the company saw early success by securing contracts with companies such as the BBC, Experian and Orange.
In 2000, we began to specialise in address management with the rollout and adoption of the British Standard for Addressing BS7666. Our original focus on local authorities later expanded to include other large public sector organisations such fire, police and ambulance services, and more recently utility and central government driven projects.
In 2017, the company was bought out by long-term senior members of the management team, Andy Hird and Dinesh Thanigasalam. This buy-out was underpinned by their substantial confidence in the company’s staff and products.
Our aim is to help any organisation using addresses to maximise their efficiency by managing, maintaining and sharing accurate address data through the most functionally rich and advanced solutions available. Our customers are at the centre of everything we do, so we continually look to them for feedback, and use that to influence our product development and roadmap.
We have a highly effective team, while also enjoying a strong sense of family. With more than half the team having been employed for ten plus years, it’s clear to see how highly we value our staff. And that doesn’t just benefit us, it enables all our customers to enjoy the wealth of experience we have retained.
We pride ourselves on being a dynamic and agile company, so while we provide market-leading products and excellent support services, we always have our eye on the future and are continually developing and innovating to stay ahead of the crowd.
