About Us

Linkage Systems Corporation is privately funded and was founded in 2000 to develop software products and services that embrace the themes of software integration, innovation, and collaboration. Linkage Systems focuses on affordable and easy to deploy solutions that enable local outlets to fully leverage the existing investments in national and regional brand advertising. By integrating advances in mass customization, digital imaging, and automated workflow technology, Linkage Systems is positioned to help local businesses compete effectively in a marketplace driven by increasingly sophisticated consumers who are relying more on local search and targeted marketing to find merchants and make purchases.
