Met de gegevens van naar schatting 10.000 organisaties en 25.000 contactpersonen is Perslink een uniek en noodzakelijk stuk gereedschap voor de dagelijkse werkzaamheden van journalisten en programmamakers. Perslink is 11 september 2002 in gebruik gesteld.

Bevordering van de zichtbaarheid in de media van deskundigen met een niet-Nederlandse culturele achtergrond, alsook die van deskundige vrouwen, zodat meningen en opvattingen vanuit alle bevolkingsgroepen gelijkwaardig aan bod komen en alle groepen zich in de media kunnen herkennen, is een van de uitgangspunten van Perslink. De andere doelstelling is om journalisten en programmamakers de kortste weg naar de juiste organisatie en woordvoerder te wijzen.
