Sensis: Over a century of experience and an eye for the future

Sensis' traditions stretch back to the creation of the first telephone book in 1880.

For the next 114 years, Australia's directories leader focused on the publication of the White Pages® and Pink Pages (later Yellow™) print directories.

But with the advent of the internet and the launch of the world's first online directories in 1974, things began to change - and change fast.

In just under a decade, Sensis has grown from a telephone book company to become one of the world's most advanced information providers. Our information network has grown to include iconic brands such as Trading Post®, Citysearch® and Whereis® and we are leading the charge beyond the web into channels such as 3G mobile and in-car telematics.

Technology hasn't stopped evolving and neither will we. Sensis will continue to use technology to create better information solutions for you.

But there are some things that won't change:

  • Like the fact that our success is totally dependent on our value to you - our audience of buyers, sellers, advertisers and people searching for information.
  • That our people are the core of our business. Sensis today is widely recognised as one of Australia's leading employers.
  • And we haven't forgotten our print heritage. In fact, more Australians use Sensis print directories than every major online search engine, directory or classified service put together.1
