Get Started With a Safe Software Partnership

You’re the Consultant

Unlike other software companies, we don't engage in any of the consulting work, preferring to refer that business to our Partners as we focus on building the best possible software.

A Path to Success

The Safe Partner Program begins as a Service Partner, with the ability to change tiers as your experience and skills advance.

It’s Free!

We don’t charge an application fee or any ongoing membership fees. We prefer to profit with our Partners – not from them.

How Our Partners Use FME

For over 20 years, FME has been trusted by tens of thousands of companies from around the world. View some of their stories below.

Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) was working with an old database system with outdated information about electrical assets, inaccurate information on the location of illegal consumers, and was prone to electricity theft.

EEDC is now able to quickly see the number of buildings they supply and the length of roads in their franchise area, which has helped in the development of the EEDC Base Map that is more data-rich than Google Maps.

Health authorities and public health workers in Central Norway urgently needed a tool to get a better overview of the current situation and potential spread of the COVID-19 virus. The resulting dashboard from this project indicates the number of current patients at all hospitals in the region, and a prognosis for potential new patients and those requiring intensive care based on different r-values. The solution is easy to maintain and runs smoothly.

The City of Delémont needed to set up a workflow where data capture from the field would automatically trigger certain processes when recorded. With a very limited budget, solutions had to be very simple, based on existing components, and costs had to be minimal.

FME was very accessible and ran the whole process at very low cost. It took out the need to do things manually. Field observations are now efficiently transmitted in almost real-time to the engineer in charge.
