About Us

NewCom Technologies, Inc.:

NewCom was founded in 1995 and is located in Des Moines, Iowa.  Over the course of its history,  NewCom developed and refined its GIS based mapping technology.  In 2004 NewCom determined a need for a user-friendly map based facility management software suite.  In the early days of development, the focus was on local government's management of their public facilities such as water, gas, pavement, etc.  However, those communities who also managed cemeteries, were excited about the ability to support cemetery operations in the same map based interface they have been using to manage other city facilities.  This set the stage for our CMS product.  Over the years, we listened to our clients and added enhancements which brought the product to where it is today.

In working with a very diverse client base in all parts of the country, NewCom has gained experience in a multitude of cemetery operations and record content. NewCom has perfected processes to move you from your paper based system to an electronic map based system in a vary cost efficient way.
