Used internationally by respected conservation agencies, CMSi (Conservation Management System international) is a comprehensive, map-based solution for the management of protected areas and other important sites, and for the delivery of biodiversity net gain.

Adaptive Management for Conservation

CMSi is built around the concept of Adaptive Management: Planning, Management, Monitoring and Review. A process that recognises the fundamental complexities and uncertainties of conservation management and aims for constant improvement. This makes CMSi ideally suited to help in the delivery and monitoring of biodiversity net gain (BNG).

Comprehensive Solution

CMSi recognises that good site management is a holistic process. The management of buildings, property agreements, cultural heritage, budgets and other resources can be as central to achieving good conservation outcomes as the management and monitoring of habitat and species. This is why CMSi covers all these aspects of site management. And CMSi is an open and interoperable solution, enabling seamless integrations with your Finance, CRM and other back-end systems.

Map-based Interface

Central to the way we think and work in CMSi is the map. Indeed we believe this is how our users perceive and relate to the world around them... spatially and geographically. And so increasingly in CMSi, especially as we move to CMSi Web, the map, rather than being a secondary view of our information, is becoming the starting point for all workflows.

Flexible Approach

While there are many common themes in site management - the pursuit of objectives to maintain, conserve and enhance assets, habitats and species, and the monitoring of progress against these objectives, there are many approaches to adaptive site management to suit different circumstances. This is why we have built flexibility into all aspects of CMSi. Different modules can be included in your CMSi build, different users and groups of users can see different screens and subsets of data to suit their roles, and all screens can themselves be customised. There is very little in CMSi that cannot be configured to your way of working, from the map design to data editing permissions, and even the language used.


By placing our users at the heart of the development process we ensure that we can make the most of technological advances to meet your ever-changing needs, a process enabled through user group meetings, regular client-facing webinars, and other forums.
