Our Philosophy

Data is a valuable strategic asset, and organisations today are collecting increasing amounts of it, but unless they have the right tools in place, the value of that data will be lost. At WingArc, we are experts in unlocking insights, helping businesses around the world to make better supported decisions, more quickly.

We aim to change the world by delivering innovative software and services that enable customers to harness the full value of their data. With this goal in mind, we have developed a suite of software products and solutions that are designed to enable our customers to effectively use and obtain strategic insights from their data.

Our core products include next generation business intelligence and dashboarding, our IoT Platform for hospitality, retail, transportation and more, a complete suite of Salesforce integrated products and confidential but flexible open data dissemination.

These solutions help make better use of information, enabling you to reach decisions on what matters at the time it matters.

WingArc Australia was previously known as Space-Time Research. Founded at Melbourne University in 1986, STR specialised for over 30 years in developing software tools and solutions for many of the world’s leading statistical organisations, government agencies and commercial enterprises. Our SuperSTAR suite changes the way people explore, build and share information, making the process simple, secure and rich in meaningful insights.

In 2017 we became WingArc Australia following our acquisition by WingArc, Japan's market leading provider of business intelligence, document management and enterprise analytics software.
