Creative Innovative Cost Effective
Geethal immigrated from Sri-Lanka to New Zealand in 1975 where he completed his education and graduated from the University of Canterbury with a Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical) in 1981.
After graduating he worked as a Project Engineer and Systems Analyst for New Zealand Railways until 1986. He then joined BP Oil New Zealand to work as a Project Engineer for Aviation, LPG and Oil Installations and finished as Chief Engineer for New Zealand and Pacific regions.
In 1993 Geethal started his own Engineering Consultancy business - Geethal & Associates - where he worked with oil and electricity companies. He has also project managed various community building projects.
In 1998 Geethal decided to do what he really wanted to do - software development. And so Geethal Data Systems Limited - GDSL - was established. As a result various software applications for a range of clients both large and small were developed.
Our primary product GeethalSystem has evolved over about the past ten years of development time to the product today.
We are dedicated to the solutions that we design and support – a commitment highlighted by the long term relaionships with our customers, and the diversity and profile of the organisations that we support.
