Asset management is in our DNA

SPM Assets specializes in strategic asset management. We provide asset management services to help organizations build a better understanding of their physical assets as well as easy-to-use asset management software to enable them to plan their projects more effectively. We have been helping asset intensive organizations make asset management work better for 18 years, and are now empowering all organizations to proactively leverage property lifecycle asset management.

SPM stands for sic parvis magna in Latin. Loosely translated, it means, "great things from small beginnings". Incorporated in 2001, the company was founded by Steve Lyons and Chris Jenkins, who believed there was a smarter way to maximize the lifetime of their physical assets and deliver better outcomes for their stakeholders. Our Corporate head office and software development team are located in Auckland, New Zealand, with the customer service and sales teams based in Sydney, Australia. We also have a growing presence in New York, USA and South Africa. We hold information on over $150 billion of property assets, and are continually innovating our service delivery to make our customers’ jobs easier, and with reliable, scientific data for decision making. Our local services teams of highly experienced consultants assist organizations with strategic asset management, establishing the best process for assessing and maintaining assets.
