Pitney Bowes Inc acquires Encom
Encom develops GIS and geophysical software applications, provides advanced consulting services and operates the GPinfo petroleum tenement exploration information service. Encom was founded in 1984 by David Pratt and Ian Grierson. During the early 1980s most exploration software required large and expensive mainframe computers to operate. Dave and Ian recognised that the evolving field of personal computing would have an increasing effect on the way people work.
