In the late 1970’s, David J. Frea, the founder and president of INFONETICS, Inc. began working with computers used in small and medium sized businesses.
Mr. Frea financed his education at the Ohio State University by developing software systems for Wang VP and MVP computers, and, in the spring of 1981 he received a Bachelor Of Science degree in Computer And Information Sciences.
Shortly after graduation, he was employed by the Alkon Corporation as a software engineer and spent the next two years working on their Compu-key automated concrete batching equipment and their Centra scale ticketing computer.
Moving from Alkon to Acutote Corporation, Mr. Frea became involved in developing a pari-mutuel wagering computer system for horse and dog racing tracks. However, throughout his professional employment he continued to serve his private clients and develop experience in the custom accounting software field.
INFONETICS was formed in January of 1984 as a partnership with his father Dr. James I. Frea. In the 3rd quarter of that year financing was secured for a development computer, and the partnership was converted to a corporation on October 1st 1984.
Dr. James I. Frea joined INFONETICS full time in January of 1989, and has applied his past experience as a full professor with The Ohio State University towards the development of INFONETICS software documentation and literature. Dr. Frea continued his association with INFONETICS until his passing in 2005.
INFONETICS has experienced moderate controlled growth since its inception. Future staffing plans dictate adding additional engineering personnel as needed to support the growing customer base. As a closely held private corporation, INFONETICS has no plans for being sold or going public in the future.
