Data#3’s history links back to 1977 when Powell, Clark and Associates (PCA), a prominent IBM support organisation, was established to offer professional consulting and data processing services to individuals and companies installing computer- based information systems. The company was named after the two original founders, Terry Powell and Graham Clark.
PCA became a leading IT software consultancy specialising in developing and implementing applications software for small to medium sized organisations across a range of industries. In particular it established an excellent reputation as the largest supplier of IBM-based software for small hospitals in Australia.
In 1984, Data#3 was born out of two Queensland-based firms – Powell, Clark and Associates and Albrand Typewriters & Office Machines Pty Ltd. Albrand Typewriters and Office Machines, an IBM Typewriter dealer with two Brisbane locations in Aspley and the CBD, contributed to Data#3 an excellent reputation and a wealth of experience in provision of quality office equipment, materials and supplies Data#3 staff in the mid eighties from the most respected, reliable and progressive suppliers.
The strongly solutions-oriented approach adopted by PCA was carried through as a guiding principle for the Data#3 Group – as was a clear understanding that maximising return for investment in Information Technology has high priority for people in business, industry and government.
Data#3 moved ahead to become one of Queensland’s first personal computer dealerships and the first reseller of IBM’s “mid-range” multi user computing systems.
Today, more than 32 years on, Data#3 has evolved from a Queensland oriented office equipment and PC reseller into one of Australia’s leading IT Solutions companies with over 500 staff serving customers from Data#3 offices in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Adelaide, Perth, and Central Queensland.
