DATAFILE has a 40+ year history of innovation in office solutions in Australia. Our roots are grounded in the development of a colour coding filing system pioneered by DATAFILE Canada in the late 1960’s. By the 1970’s DATAFILE was the leading filing system in Australia. In 1992, TAB purchased DATAFILE and brought the DATAFILE Canadian and Australian operations into the fold. DATAFILE has been a division of Filing Essentials Pty Ltd since 2011 and is proudly 100% Australian owned and operated.

DATAFILE can help you to organise, access and manage your organisation’s critical information through integrated records management solutions. DATAFILE provides premium custom colour-coded filing systems, high-density mobile shelving systems, a wide range of file folders and filing supplies, records management software, consulting and file room outsourcing services.
