InfoEd Global Celebrates 25 Years of Providing Electronic Research Administration Software Solutions to Institutions Around the World

Press Release

ALBANY, N.Y. –– InfoEd Global, provider of software solutions for electronic Research Administration (eRA), proudly announces its celebration of 25 years in business.

InfoEd was formed in Albany, New York. The company’s beginnings were based on forty years of research industry experience in higher education. InfoEd’s initial product offering was the Sponsored Programs Information Network (SPIN) system, which helped grants and contracts staff at research institutions find relevant funding opportunities. Users of SPIN could identify opportunities using specialized keywords and build robust researcher profiles. SPIN quickly became an industry-standard funding opportunity database and retains that position today, being used by hundreds of institutions around the world.

By 1996, InfoEd had expanded its software solutions to the European marketplace. By 2005, InfoEd grew its international operations further by adding locations in Australia and South Africa. Currently, InfoEd is staffed with nearly 100 full-time employees.

“It was and is exciting to be a part of something that started so small and is now so large and getting larger,” said Edward Johnson, Jr., president of InfoEd Global.

To celebrate their 25 years in business, the company will host customer and employee appreciation events throughout the year, including its annual user group conference in San Antonio, Texas from May 22-25.
