The seeds of Safe’s growth.
While working on a geospatial forestry data sharing project in British Columbia, co-founders Don Murray and Dale Lutz saw the challenge to be solved firsthand. The need to exchange data across different systems and organizations existed, the solution didn’t. Cue the creation of Safe Software.
Growing into a world of possibilities.
Don and Dale began developing a prototype of what would later become FME, our software platform that connects people, organizations and entire enterprises through what was once incompatible data. Today, we’ve grown into a thriving business with hundreds of employees and tens of thousands of customers worldwide.
