We are Aligned Assets
Aligned Assets is now owned by Idox.
The recent acquisition of Aligned Assets by Idox is a clear demonstration of the successful growth of this small, independent software house. Combining Idox’s strong IP and Idox Cloud together with the complementary Aligned Assets address data management solutions, will provide an overall improved customer experience, leading to future organic growth.
Now part of a dynamic plc, Aligned Assets was first 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 data 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 as 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.
In 2021, the company was acquired by Idox with a view to enhance and optimise both the Idox and Aligned Assets offerings by seamlessly integrating the solutions to provide the most efficient, feature-rich solutions available.
Our aim is to help organisations using addresses to maximise their efficiency by managing, maintaining, and sharing accurate address data. Our customers remain 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 and continue to enjoy 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 dynamic and agile, 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.
