About Desktop Trace

We’ve been searching for people for years! We’ve helped our clients locate many thousands of debtors who have skipped, through our business Desktop Investigations. Borne out of the need for a database that provides up-to-date and correct information, we created our own tracing search engine.

Why shouldn’t there be a simpler way for people to obtain industry level information to track someone properly? Finding people is our key area of expertise. We have access to a vast array of information databases – and we want to give you the same user-friendly access.

Desktop Trace is the only product available in New Zealand that combines credit reporting bureaus, as well as other industry tools, in one place.

It’s streamlined, simple to use and designed by experienced legal investigators.

All the search functions you need tied up in one neat package.
