Founded in 1998
When Informatics was founded in 1998, AOL CD-ROMS were plentiful, people used the term “information superhighway” and a mere 41% of Americans were using the internet. Starting as a home-based business, Informatics has grown in the last 20+ years into one of Iowa’s oldest and most prestigious digital firms.
A Family Business
Started by father and son, Frank and John Osako, with wife and mother Maureen joining soon after, they believed the internet was going to be a game changer and forever change the way people do business. John has been quoted saying, “never in my wildest dreams (or nightmares) did I think I would drive to work everyday in my childhood bedroom.”
Your Success is Our Success
Growth came quickly for Informatics, who developed a consistent track record of delivering excellent work, on budget and on time. Providing excellent customer service was – and is – a key strategy for the business. Informatics quickly adopted the motto “your success is our success” and trademarked All Things Internet® which exemplified Informatics’ growing list of services offered to their clients.
An Expansion of Services
What started with website development, services soon expanded to the inclusion of video, photography, podcasting, managed hosting, and a vast array of digital marketing services. Informatics continually adapted and grew with each new technological innovation, always staying ahead of the curve and working to help clients understand how these new innovations would be helpful for them.
Voted Best Web Developer
Informatics has won numerous awards for their design and innovation. The company has been voted “Best Web Developer in the Corridor” for 11 years in a row by readers of the Corridor Business Journal. After 11 consecutive wins, we were recognized for our success by being elevated to the Hall of Fame from 2016 until the present.
Continuing to Grow
Informatics has grown steadily over the years, priding itself on never having to lay anyone off, ever. Now with over thirty professionals laser-focused on delivering results for our clients, Informatics fields a very experienced team of seasoned experts in All Things Internet®.
Passing the Torch
In 2020, Frank and Maureen passed the company operations on to John. He, with his business partner and wife Stacie, are building upon the strong foundation laid by the previous 20+ years of hard work. They are excited to take Informatics to whole new levels of success, allowing Informatics to give back even more to the communities and organizations they support and love.
