About Us

Fathom is an award-winning team of designers, developers and business analysts. We’re primarily based in Brisbane, Australia - but we help advisers and business owners from all over the world with their reporting needs.

We’re a people company, focused on helping people to make better business decisions. Oh, and we also build really great analysis and reporting tools.

Starting as a collaboration between Daniel Walls, Geoff Cook and David Watson, Fathom has since expanded both its systems and team as we strive to provide you with exactly what you need - easy to use and insightful performance analysis and reports.

Our aim is to create beautiful and usable tools which provide insight and understanding. Whether you call it business intelligence, performance management, or analytics … the goal of Fathom is the same: to help you understand what’s happening in your business, and how to take action when needed.

The co-founders of Fathom first started working together in the playground sandpit over 30 years ago (it’s a great story, ask us about it sometime).
