30 years ago, Centretech Computer Products was founded, eventually located at 23 Chandos St, St Leonards, NSW, Australia, to supply information technology to several businesses colleagues including the then relative start-up Star Track Express (formerly Discount Freight Express).
In 1988 Centralised Proof Of Delivery (POD) processing and retrieval system was established for Startrack to service customers with POD copies, nationally. In 1991 AirData developed and deployed Transport Efficiency Analysis and Management (TEAM) national computer system at Startrack. Over the years, many other solutions were developed by the AirData development team that automated 90% of Startrack's requirements.
Still today, TEAM is at the core of Startrack operations with 4 full-time Senior Developers and System Architects deployed.
AirData grew from there, organically and through acquisitions such as AyrSystems (a reseller of handheld computers and technical services) to become AyrData Systems, to become a supplier of complete mobility systems including handheld computers, software, wireless access points and other mobility requirements. The name of company was changed to AirData Systems. Other acquisitions included Mobile Data Systems (MDS) in 2007 a mobile technology specialist based in Queensland.
In 2009, AirData became the largest Motorola EMB reseller in Australia, the next year winning the Best Customer Service Award also from Motorola EMB, establishing itself as the unquestionable leader in the Industrial Mobility space.
Today, AirData is a ubiquitous Industrial Mobility Consulting and Solutions leader with major deployments in the Transport & Logistics, White goods & Brown goods servicing industries, HVAC, Waste Management and Mining industries, growing into new industries and geographies with strategies exclusively focused on delivering tailored Industrial Mobility Solutions that deliver significant ROI to our Clients, a better customer experience to their customers and a better working environment for their employees.
