Datamaxx 25th Anniversary

Datamaxx At a Glance

How can we improve the process of accessing and sharing “mission critical” information for those who protect and serve our nation?  That was the question asked by co-founders Kay Stephenson and Jonathan Waters when they came together with their extensive industry and technical expertise.  The answer came in 1991 when they formed Datamaxx Applied Technologies, Inc., as a certified woman-owned business to develop advanced communications for the law enforcement, public safety, and criminal justice markets.  Datamaxx quickly became an industry leader. In 2014 Datamaxx enhanced our product line to encompass solutions for “designated” critical infrastructures, eighty-five percent of which are owned by the private sector.  Our vision is for law enforcement and critical infrastructure private sector entities to partner together to build a vital information sharing environment to make our nation safer.        

Datamaxx is excited to be celebrating our 25th Anniversary this September.  Of course, this could not have been accomplished without the amazing support of our customers.  Datamaxx remains committed to the law enforcement and criminal justice market, and as we embark on our next 25 years, to continue to innovate and evolve to the changing needs of our customers.
