Founded by two former faculty members in Kentucky in 2002, DATA180 began with a vision to digitally “turn around” academe with robust, elegant, easy-to-use solutions for faculty activity and accreditation reporting. In 2017 Interfolio acquired DATA180 and added its reporting product to the larger Interfolio suite of faculty-focused technology for shared governance decisions, like hiring, promotion, and tenure. Together, the two companies are on target to provide a more robust platform of comprehensive tools for every moment in the faculty lifecycle, from hiring through post-tenure review.
These are the principles on which DATA180 was founded:
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.
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.
TOTAL DEDICATION TO OUR CUSTOMERS
First and foremost, we are a service company. Nothing is more important to us than creating superior software and customer-service experiences for our clients.
