Civica has acquired Melbourne-based contractor management specialist LinkSafe, a move which will see the GovTech leader add a critical new capability to its global software offering. Launched in 2005, LinkSafe’s cloud-based contractor management platform currently supports over 500 organisations across a wide range of sectors, including all those served by Civica. These include: education, central and local government and healthcare.


LinkSafe’s solution perfectly complements and enhances Civica’s existing suite of GovTech software. It will provide a key new capability, helping customers to address common challenges around the onboarding and management of contractors, ranging from induction to compliance with health and safety rules. The end-to-end solution centralises and simplifies time-consuming, though vital tasks, including capturing contractor credentials, incident management and hazard reporting, offering peace of mind and assurance for customers and contractors alike.
A core part of Civica’s global business strategy is regular complementary acquisitions to continuously enhance its offering to customers and the citizens they serve. LinkSafe’s contractor management capabilities will form part of Civica’s global GovTech offering which currently supports over 6,000 public bodies at local, national and federal level, around the world.


Civica Chief Executive Officer, Lee Perkins said:

“Trusted by more than 500 organisations, LinkSafe’s cloud-based contractor management solution perfectly complements and enhances our global GovTech offering. The new capabilities offered by LinkSafe will ensure we’re better able to support our customers, both across the Asia Pacific region and around the world, ensuring they in turn can deliver even more for the citizens they serve.”


Civica Executive Director (APAC), Ben Cowling said:

“From onboarding to compliance, this end-to-end solution will offer peace of mind and confidence to organisations as they navigate the increasingly complex world of contractor management. We look forward to rolling out these key new capabilities as part of our wider GovTech offering to our customers across Australia and the wider APAC region.” 


LinkSafe Chief Executive Officer, David Erczmann said:

“LinkSafe has grown to be recognised as a leading contractor management solution with clients throughout Australia, New Zealand and the USA. As we embark on this exciting chapter with Civica, we are thrilled about the new opportunities this acquisition presents. Being part of the Civica family will allow us to leverage our unique strengths and resources, enhancing our ability to innovate and serve our existing customers, as well as those across Civica, more than ever before. We look forward to complementing Civica’s GovTech offering globally with a world-leading contractor management solution.”
