Personalized Solutions From Our Team to Yours

We deliver innovative technologies and information solutions, helping organizations to make informed and supported decisions.


What we do for you:

Good technology solutions bring technology to the user, not the user to the technology. Organizations benefit from our services by connecting their business world with the world of technology. This is facilitated through a multidisciplinary approach which uses our domain knowledge in the environmental and natural resources sectors in concert with our knowledge of technology solutions.

We provide solutions that lie at the intersection of organizational goals, modern technological capabilities and the environment in which you operate. Sometimes this means solutions that move with your workforce, collecting data where they go. Sometimes it means having a powerful application that allows you to dig into data and achieve insights that drive organizaitonal goals.

In short, we're here to provide solutions that meet your needs.



Our Approach

Clients can expect us to provide organized and thoughtfully planned projects which achieve their organizational goals. Continuous communication throughout our projects provides transparency allowing the client to see, understand and shape provided solutions.

Line 45 also understands that different organizations require different approaches, methods and communication styles. We take the time to understand our clients' needs and to find an appropriate solution. Some customers want to see their options with pros/cons and solution analysis. For those customers we provide our insight into what might be a good fit for them. Other customers just want to be given the tools to get the job done. We provide that option too.
