Maps, innovations, and data digitization. We’re celebrating 25 years of experience
Thank you for being with us over the past 25 years, during which so much has changed. Thank you for being a part of this change!
For 25 years, we’ve been delivering specialized geospatial solutions and a wide range of IT products and services.
We support you in network asset management and field service management. We help you maximize the potential of digital maps. We guide you through every step of the system and enterprise integration, data digitization, and digital transformation.
We’re constantly growing and setting new, ambitious goals. We create new products, some of which are based on AI/ML (have you already heard about our iDoc? 😉). We also expand to serve new industries (e.g., insurance) and countries (did you know we have clients in 54 countries, such as Malta, Egypt, and South Korea?). We design innovative solutions for our Research & Development projects (primarily for the energy sector, including RES).
All this so we can support companies and organizations in tackling arising challenges. Whether you’re a large American telco operator or a Polish company transporting and assembling furniture in Western Europe – we’re there for you!
25 years of Globema’s existence brought…
Globema in the past…
The beginnings of our company go back to the turbulent 90s. That’s when several bold people with their heads full of ideas decided to bring innovation to the Polish industry. They started with telecommunications…
See our logos over the years!
…and Globema today!
After 25 years, we’re honored by our cooperation with over 800 companies and institutions from different industries across 50 countries. We maintain partnerships with leading tech companies. Our rich portfolio includes a variety of products and services.
Despite the passage of time and all the changes we experience as a company, Globema is still about its people who like what they do and create a truly harmonious team.
Meet the Globemians after hours 😎
We’re specialists in what we do, but there’s more to life than work!
We have our hobbies: baking, traveling, learning Korean… You can read all about this on Globema’s social media. Click a photo to read a short interview:
During the 25 years of Globema’s existence, we created a unique team, atmosphere, and company culture. I think that the team is the reason we’ve been around for so long and grow continuously. Many people have been working with us for over 10 and 15 years.
I want to take a moment to express my appreciation and thank all Globemians, the current and former ones, for their contribution to the company’s growth. Thanks to all of you, we made it so far and have high hopes for future progress.
Ryszard Rybus, CEO
