Watch Systems was established in 1999 as part of Fuelman, a Louisiana-based fleet fuel card provider. Fuelman acquired in-house mapping technology to create location guides for its customers. Having acquired this mapping capability, Fuelman's CEO, Lou Luzynski, sought out new ways to deploy it.
After learning of the requirements imposed by various state and federal laws aimed at keeping the public better informed regarding sex offenders, a product called OffenderWatch® was developed. This product was aimed principally at using mapping technology to allow law enforcement to determine notification recipients automatically and ease the burden of registration compliance. A separate company, which ultimately was split out as Watch Systems, LLC in June 2000, was founded for the purpose of marketing this product. Watch is owned by a group led by former Fuelman CEO Lou Luzynski.
After deploying the OffenderWatch® product, Watch developed the additional products included in its list of products and now provides a variety of innovative solutions to business and government involving mapping, Internet -based and other Software as Service applications and custom designed software packages.
