It is in our nature to innovate, both in driving our field forward and through applying that cutting-edge knowledge where it will have the most real-world impact.

Ethical icon


We strive to be ethical, honest, fair, and transparent in everything we do. We recognize the unique value and creative potential in everyone.

Balance icon


We aim for balance in all that we do by proactively enabling a better work / life balance and optimizing our products through balancing the latest technology with pragmatic techniques.

Our history

Aluma was founded in 2009, originally as Focal Point Software, by George and Nidal, whose experience in the document capture industry had given them a passion for the applications of document automation, and a strong desire to introduce a new generation of technology with a focus on ease of adoption. Industry partnerships quickly led to the software being deployed in government systems, hospitals and other organisations worldwide. We deployed the first cloud service version in 2015, and have since continued to grow the company and evolve the service to keep pace with the latest technology.

Leadership team

We are a world-class team with deep technical and market experience in advanced document processing. We’re disruptive, innovative, curious, and mature in our capabilities.
