Our Story: interlinkONE

In addition to providing tools that will enable you to succeed, our experienced and energetic staff will guide you down a path of best practices that are always tailored to your specific needs. Here is our story:
Formed in 1996 interlinkONE created Web-Based Software applications that served the Fulfillment space. Our solutions were all accessed via the internet and we managed our own infrastructure at the datacenters. Our model was termed “application service providers,” which then transformed into “software as a service,” which we did from the start.
Our customers were either fulfillment providers or actual companies that did their own fulfillment. Our early years were based on literature fulfillment—pick, pack, and kitting. We expanded to allow for any type of fulfillment, and inventory and warehousing that allowed for product fulfillment. Our order management system was made accessible to field reps and more.
Our customer base included firms as divergent as Cisco Systems and Fireman’s Fund, to name a few. We added to that collection with the likes of Yale University, Goodway Group, Federal Direct, Fortune 20 financial service organizations, and many more.
We also allowed for digital inventory and ordering in our solution as it didn’t matter if it was on the shelf, print on demand, variable pieces, etc. Our solution has business rules that help the organization control usage based on a variety of things, including inventory, budget, users and more.
In 2002, we rewrote the business plan to include selling to printers. At that time, we decided to partner with variable data software solutions versus building our own. Our software integrates with XMPIE, PageFlex and so many more. Our software also integrates with all of the major shipping carriers and also manifest systems in use today.
As time went on, we added even more to our robust management system. Now, our solutions had management capabilities through various modules focusing on projects, CRM, and marketing. All these modules worked seamlessly in one application.
In 2008 we began looking into offering our solutions individually versus an all in one solution. Along with this, came a branching out into other mobile-first solutions, like QReate & Track and iflymobi.
QReate & Track allowed users to easily create and track QR codes. iflymobi was a web-based, easy-to-use tool that allowed users to build mobile websites.
In 2010, interlinkONE made a very impactful decision about the direction of our work—Grow Socially was established. Under this company and brand, we now offered full marketing services to our customers. From strategic planning to execution initiatives, we did the marketing work for our customers.
In 2015, we launched our first major release of ilinkONEpro—the latest version of our flagship software. The main benefits and enhancements are an improved look and feel, a new UI/UX, and speed of use by the end users.
In 2016, we tore down our Datacenter needs inside of AT&T and moved all of our customers to the Cloud (AWS).
In Early 2017, we began providing both a marketing automation platform and a social media management platform. This is where MAX and GrowSocially App came into play as monthly subscription-based platforms. At this time, we slowed down the services side of actually executing marketing work for our customers and focused on providing them with the best solutions to do it themselves.
Our team continues to work extremely hard to stay a leader in providing innovative software solutions.
With that said, we have already begun working on a new business endeavor—SportCoups. SportCoups is a micro-fundraising App that allows student and youth athletes to raise money for their athletic needs and those that donate gain access to a large database of coupons right on their phones.
Our intellectual culture and team mentality is a huge factor in our daily success. We enjoy conversing and brainstorming and think we’re pretty good at it. If you’d like to start a conversation to discuss how we can help you, connect with us today!
