About Global GBM

Global GBM is a world-leading provider of software systems that capture, manage and process field data. We understand its critical nature and the role it plays in strategic decision-making.

For over 20 years our innovative map-based solutions have empowered business and government organisations.

Global GBM’s products are now distributed through an international channel network. Our partners are highly experienced professionals. Like us, they are committed to solution driven results for your organisation on any scale.


GBM Software products are now badged as Global GBM to reflect the expanding product range and global coverage of our user base.

Both Global GBM and GBM Software are divisions of Exa-Min Technologies Pty Ltd.


Global GBM was launched in 1991, initially as a geosciences data and mapping consultancy.

As the business grew we changed our name to Exa-Min Technologies and offered software under the banners of GBM Software and then Global GBM.

We were early adopters of Geospatial Technologies and specialist data analysts when today’s PC’s were in their infancy.

We began offering GPS enabled mobile mapping systems in 2002, building on a legacy of software development that commenced in the mid 90’s.

Our two founding directors were field geologists and worked at remote field camps. With hands-on experience in field data collection, they understood how to leverage technology to solve its problems and inefficiencies.

As Global GBM, we continue to build on our two decades of experience in mobile data collection, business consulting, GIS and spatial database technologies to support cost effective operations.

We are expert in a wide range of development languages, spatial database technologies and the latest hardware and operating systems.

Today our Brisbane based development center is staffed by a multi-disciplined team of engineers, developers and designers.

Our products are serviced by an international reseller network that spans the globe.


Our Services

At Global GBM we focus on delivering superior business outcomes.

We offer Commercial-Off-The-Shelf products and Implementation Services that adapt the standard products for our customer’s special needs.

All our systems are designed for soft-configuration – that allows us to quickly adapt our products through configuration settings without writing new programming code.

These solutions can be delivered much more quickly and without the long bedding down cycle that that comes with traditional development methods.

Our proven work flows and robust field software is especially suited to projects that integrate mobile and office based processes.

Full Solution

We complement our software offering with services to fast track your implementation and streamline your operations.

Design, consulting and implementation services are available through our in-house team and world wide reseller network.

Additional professional services are available through consulting partners who understand our software and your operating environment.

Licensing and Operations

We offer software for installation in-house or as a cloud service where we take responsibility for the IT infrastructure.

Most Global GBM products are available under a perpetual license, operating rental or pay as you go service.

Rental agreements can combine mobile hardware, software licensing and implementation services. All this for a regular monthly fee out of the operating budget.

Call us to tailor an implementation and licensing plan to suite your special situation.
