Additionally, being unique in the market as the only company in Australia offering hosted services in combination with our software solutions, we're able to deliver strategic, operational and cost efficiencies that could not be gained from sourcing the functions from two separate providers. Consequently, we gain a much deeper understanding of our clients resulting in our ability to provide the highest level of client engagement and collaboration. After all, clients are our main priority; without them, we have no purpose.

History

Incorporated in 1986 as a co-operative by Australian Central, CPS, PowerState, Fire Service and Satisfac Credit Unions, DA had a vision of becoming the preferred and exclusive technology partner of the customer owned financial services industry. We have since managed to take on a growing client base and establish ourselves as an industry leader.

In 1989 we acquired our own version of software to support and develop for SA and NT Credit Unions, then in 1997 we purchased the Phoenix Core Banking System from the US. In 2011 we rebranded Phoenix to DA CBS subsequent to purchasing the intellectual property rights and selling rights in Australia and New Zealand.

In 2013, Karl Grant joined the team as CEO and proceeded to lead our transformation through his reinvigoration and introduction of our ‘Technology Roadmap’ as well as our client relationship management function. Both initiatives have proved to be successful amongst our clients. Through our clients, we are proud to be dealing with over 1 million banking customers and 25+ billion in client assets, operating across 700 servers.

With 170+ staff across Adelaide and Sydney, along with our network in Melbourne and Brisbane we looking forward to continuing to provide excellent technology solutions.
