Old school values meets modern systems and technology

HomeFront founders Chris Moss and David Ballantyne each served as full-time Infantry Officers in the Australian Army for 15 years, and continue to serve as Army Reservists today.

Graduating Royal Military College Duntroon six months apart, their shared and individual military adventures have taken them around the world; from Afghanistan, to North and East Africa, East Timor, Israel, South Sudan, Europe and the Gulf States. Serving together in various tactical command appointments as Platoon and Company Commanders, and Headquarters appointments as Operation Officers, the two formed a private company Ballantyne Moss in 2011 to pursue their shared post-deployment vision.

This vision was to take the cutting-edge command and control technology and networked logistics architecture from the most advanced modern military operations in the world, and use it to change the way services are delivered to Australians back on the home front.

From this vision, HomeFront Australia was born in 2016.

Developing original software for an instant booking platform that tied hundreds of vetted contractors into HomeFront’s operating environment, HomeFront launched in Brisbane with great success, expanding the platform to the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Sydney by early 2018.

HomeFront’s technology, which was built by the company with former Defence Science and Technology Organisation software developer Christopher Martin, allowed HomeFront to compete for and gain numerous commercial contracts, leading to the creation of FrontLine in early 2020.

FrontLine now maintains dozens of Commercial and large strata and body corporate contracts all around Sydney, including with Bunnings Warehouse, Frank Knight, Hertz, EML Mutual, Dalton Strata, VJRay Strata, Net Strata, Strata Choice, Think Strata, Noble Strata, All Suburbs Strata Management and Irvine Strata Management.
