EcofIT was originally founded in 1985 in South Africa under the name of Kit Information Technologies and existed as a "Trading as" entity. In March 1992, Kit Information Technologies was merged as a division into Undersea Explorers cc, a scuba-diving and fitness instructor training facility - with the primary area of business being in IT consulting. In June 2000, the company was renamed EcofIT Limited and also registered in the United Kingdom. EcofIT relocated to Germany in December 2000 and the South African company was closed in 2002. 

In 2007, the decision was made in that EcofIT would focus only on software products and services. This led directly to the development of our current products.
