Swiftpoint is a technology development company with offices in New Zealand and the US, specialising in advanced Human Computer Interface (HCI) software and devices. The company’s technologies integrate mouse pointer and touch gesture inputs to enable users of tablets, notebooks, smartphones and PCs to intuitively combine the high accuracy and efficiency benefits of a mouse with the gesture functions now standard in modern operating systems.
Swiftpoint has filed patents worldwide, related to HCI innovations, many of these in the field of touch and gesture technology.
The company was founded by Grant Odgers, an inventor and entrepreneur with significant international experience. Grant built and tested his first “mouse and keyboard replacement” device 20 years ago and has since published many user interface research papers. His work received recognition by the Australian Computer Society and he has featured on CNN and BBC as an innovator of user interface devices.
Prior to founding Swiftpoint Grant worked at a wide range of companies including The Home Shoppers Network, U.S. Government Departments in Washington, D.C., and Air New Zealand. He also co-founded one of the first specialist video game stores in New Zealand and made it the largest store in the country.
The current Swiftpoint CEO is Mike Chisholm, a technology entrepreneur with a track record of building multi-million dollar businesses. He is supported by a professional Board of Directors including Dennis Row, whose background includes CEO roles in international technology companies and a top management position in a prominent venture capital fund.
The Swiftpoint senior management team includes highly experienced professionals with decades of experience working in leading international companies including public companies listed on NASDAQ and the New York Stock Exchange.
