Mainline Security Products is a 100% Australian-owned security products wholesaler, established in 1980 and based in Melbourne. The company opened an office in Brisbane in 1995. Mainline has been using Tencia for the last 5 years, upgrading from Arrow. Its relationship with Archer Technology Group dates back to 2009 when they upgraded to Arrow SQL.

Today, Mainline Security Products has multiple servers, with a healthy digital link between their head office in Melbourne and their office in Brisbane. Tencia is configured to run as Psuedo Cloud Application with the users in Brisbane launching Tencia via the smart client installed locally in Brisbane and getting their data from Melbourne. This way they do not need expensive servers in both cities and the combined licensing saves them money as well.
