we believe the best decisions are made when people understand the full picture
Wayne Johnson | Co-Founder and CEO
At Encompass Corporation we are delivering the power of visual analytics and automation to professionals who rely on commercial data.
Encompass was founded in 2011 in Sydney by Wayne Johnson and Roger Carson – seasoned technology professionals who independently have founded international software businesses, raised capital and engineered successful exits.
Roger believes “it’s not about the data, it’s about what you do with data”. He’s right. Wayne advises: “think strategic, act tactical – and make your own coffee”. And that’s how we operate – our Glasgow office has six coffee machines! At the head of our operations Alex Ford maintains clear lines of communication with our customers and partners. Graeme Buchanan directs the work of the technical experts who build our product.
Driven by the belief that the best decisions are made when people understand the full picture, our team created a visual way to search, review and manage commercial data, sourced from public registries, credit bureaus, property/asset valuation sites and a growing range of trusted data streams.
Today we have offices in Glasgow, London and Sydney and a rapidly expanding international team. By listening to professionals we discovered that they wanted a new way of working with commercial data – an approach radically more efficient and effective than their traditional methods. By harnessing the best of modern technology with deep understanding of user-experience design, by automating testing and by adopting agile development we deliver a robust, scalable solution. It’s exciting, it’s disruptive, and it’s changing how commercial information is bought and sold.
