Explorer Software Updates

Fall 2014

Explorer Software just announced that its parent company will have a new name. The parent company was formerly known as Explorer Software Group, and will now be known as the JDM Technology Group.

JDM Technology Group, which was formerly known as Explorer Software Group, was created in August of 2014. It includes four companies: Explorer Software, CSSP Construction Software, Computer Guidance Corporation, and RedSky IT.

The new name tries to eliminates any confusion between the umbrella group and its subsidiary, Explorer Software. The business operations of these companies will not change as a result of the new name.
