Our history

Founded in 1996, acQuire originated in Perth, Western Australia. acQuire’s co-founders wondered why the mining industry could not manage their drillhole data more efficiently and so the idea for a geoscientific data management software solution was born. In 2018 acQuire became part of Consetllation Software, Inc. via its operating group, Vela Sofware, and have expanded our solution offering, helping the world’s leading organisations tackle increasingly complex data challenges impacting Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), as it relates to the earth’s resources, the natural environment, and their communities.

Today, our company has five offices around the globe, with customer support centers operating in each major time zone, and our software is used by companies worldwide.
