PrimeThought is a Software Solution company providing solutions across various industries from Fast Moving Consumer Goods and Retail to Logistics to Mining. Our SpatialXL tool helps people using Microsoft Excel map their data. It is still the most powerful Excel add-in for GIS and spatial work. In fact, it is the only 3D add-in that can work for GIS and Mining Engineering as well. Due to our excellent long-term partnerships with our data providers, we also offer excellent spatial data such as updated demographics data worldwide, income segmentation data, and more.

Our aims are to provide high-quality, affordable, software products to clients who want to make their lives easier, businesses expand and their time more productive.

PrimeThought was founded by our Chief Architect, Derek Diamond in South African in 2009. He has been developing software for over 30 years and as a result, all our products have strong intellectual property and use our own spatial components and underlying software. Derek holds a Bachelor of Science Honors in mathematics and is innovative in software development, but is real a Humanitarian at heart, volunteering his skills in assisting young entrepreneurs to expand their business and donating to non-profit organizations that focus on social uplift initiatives.

We have a dedicated and friendly team who strive for excellence in all departments with Wayne heading up
Operations, Desiree over Technical Customer Care, Mark over Quality, Amy over Sales and Marketing, Deanne over Treasury, and Jessica over New Business.

For more information contact Amy on our sales team who can help you find the correct product for your needs, assist to set up training, and help you achieve the best return on your investment.
