Our Story

OUR STORY

Founded in Kentucky in 2002, DATA180 began with a vision to digitally “turn around” academe with robust, elegant, easy-to-use solutions. From that moment, we have been driven by five fundamental values that continue to inspire and guide everything we do. These core values that, we’re proud to say, have resulted in our solutions being trusted by some of the largest and most prestigious academic institutions in the world.

In 2017 we joined forces with Interfolio, the leading provider of technology to support complex shared governance decisions, like hiring, promotion, and tenure. We’re now on target to provide a more robust platform of comprehensive tools for every moment in the faculty lifecycle, from hiring through post-tenure review.

COMMITMENT TO ACADEME

Founded by academics for academics, DATA180 exists to make a real difference for educational institutions. Our roots and ongoing passion for the world of education not only inspire our products; they permeate our culture. And it’s no wonder given the founders of DATA180 have spent more than 50 years in higher education as faculty members and administrators.

INNOVATION THROUGH COLLABORATION

Networking and collaboration are second nature to our academic culture. Over the past 12 years, most of our significant product improvements have come from ideas generated through working with our clients.

INNOVATION THROUGH INVENTION

We’re also technology dreamers, and we are always looking to invent new tools and features that the world of academe has never seen. As a result, we spend a great deal of time thinking and experimenting with ways to make our software, and our clients’ lives, even better.

ALL-ROUND FLEXIBILITY

Flexible is always better, whether it’s systems or relationships. That’s why we build our software on a foundation of flexibility, creating multiple levels of client and user customization. Plus, we’re always ready to listen and adapt to our clients’ changing needs.
