Datatech has its roots in the ag industry. It was originally started by Isaac Davidian in 1980 as a division of Borelli Produce Distributors, a Fresno based grower/shipper/broker. In 1986, Isaac bought Datatech to make it a fully independent company. Since its beginning, Datatech's primary mission has been to develop the high quality, specialized software required by the ag industry, delivering practical software solutions to the problems and challenges facing growers, produce shippers, brokers, packers and labor contractors.
Datatech has been through the ups and downs of both the computer industry and the ag industry, adapting to new technologies and bringing new products to market to better serve the changing needs of our customers. We are committed to continuing this tradition into the next millennium.
As with many of the customers we serve, Datatech is a family owned and operated business. Isaac Davidian, owner and founder, his wife Linda, sons Matthew and James, daughters Damaris, Beth, and Hannah, daughter-in-law Cherrie, and niece Dorianne all work together to make Datatech a success. (Another son, Micah, son-in-law Jason, James' brother-in-law Jake, and Isaac's brother Barak have also worked at Datatech in the past.)
When you call Datatech, you know youll be talking to people who have years of experience working with computers and our ag accounting software. We have worked with ag professionals like yourself to get the most out of your computer systems. The training and support provided by our software support staff ensure that you get the most out of your investment. Our programmers add new features based on suggestions from our customers, ensuring that your investment grows and continues to meet your changing needs.
All of Datatech's newest software is designed using Visual DataFlex, an advanced database development system. If you are interested in buzzwords, Visual DataFlex is an excellent Rapid Application Development tool for creating Windows based applications. The object oriented 4GL system is optimized for database applications, especially on the data entry side where users spend a significant amount of time. And the programming language itself features a high degree of stability, a feature lacking in other popular development environments.
With Visual DataFlex we are able to design the basis for flexible accounting systems that can handle a wide variety of businesses--from single user to multi-user, from general accounting to specialized cost accounting, from generic invoicing to specialized sales and inventory tracking. Using Visual DataFlex we are able to develop common sets of programs that form the basis of each of our packages, customizing individual applications needed for each industry. We can also customize our software for your company, adding new features, entry screens, or reports.
For some more background information, read this interview with Isaac Davidian that ran in The Fresno Bee's Small Business Profile.
While the majority of our customers are in California and Arizona, we also have customers in Oregon, Washington, Texas, Idaho, Michigan, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Minnesota and Georgia.
Datatech has over 500 customers using our software.
Datatech wrote the industry standard standard grower payment software for the raisin industry. 13 of the 18 independent raisin packers use Datatech software to pay their growers.
Datatech's current Windows based software is the "third generation". The first generation software was written in Microsoft BASIC in the late 70's/early 80's for TurboDOS (a multiuser CP/M-based operating system) and MS-DOS based computers. The second generation software was rewritten in DataFlex starting in the late 80's. We began development on our current Windows based software using Visual Dataflex in the mid 90's.
