Our company began over 20 years ago, born out of a need for customised software solutions in the Goulburn Valley region in Victoria - that's what the GV in our name stands for! Since that time, we have continued to grow and our software clients are now all across Australia and in New Zealand.
Originally founded by David Spencer, GV Custom Software is now owned and run by Connor Gray and David's son Clayton. Connor and Clayton have both worked in the business for well over 10 years and their knowledge of the industries we service is second to none. They lead a team of dedicated software development superstars and fill the void where off-the-shelf software solutions fail.
