A proven development partner
Datalink was founded in 1998 to develop business systems that run using internet technologies, and while other Internet companies failed during the dot com crash in 2001, Datalink continued to grow. Major projects included a distributed authoring system for the National Tertiary Education Union, intranet applications for the Commonwealth Bank, Compaq and Queensland Health, a Learning Management System used by organisations including St George Bank and Centrelink as well as several large websites for local councils.
By 2005, Datalink's products and services such as Freestyler, Concord and MemberDrive had become a popular in the Australian marketplace particularly among associations, non-profit organisations, local government and financial services industries.
Many of Datalink's early clients have remained, some with business relationships exceeding 10 years, and they continue to find Datalink a trusted and proven development partner.
In 2008, Datalink developed its award-winning MECC Central, which is a web-based Crisis and Information Management System (CIMS) for large-scale municipal emergencies, and it was used to great effect in the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires in the Alpine region of Victoria, before being selected for state-wide adoption by over 95% of all Victorian councils in 2011.
In 2012 MECC Central has become Crisisworks, to reflect its use beyond MECC & EOC activations in the preparation and recovery phases, and to reflect the use of Crisisworks in other crisis management situations including business continuity public relations and planned event management in addition to municipal disasters.
Datalink's in-house development framework provides for rapid development and quality control, and is based on leading open-source projects spanning web, mobile and server technologies.
