About Cogitate Inc

You can read all about our history as a company.

Cogitate, Inc. has been producing award winning software solutions including quality accounting software and utility billing software for governmental agencies and private industry for over 40 years. Our newest addition is 9G Backup, an advanced online backup software that will surely revolutionize data backup as it is recognized today. We have set ourselves apart from our competition by offering exceptional customer support through a staff of dedicated people. We are not your average software company, we strive to be better.

Cogitate Inc. literally began inside a small furnace room within the infrastructure of the Harlan Electric Company in 1966. We have seen the world of computers change dramatically and we have been changing and growing right along with the rest of the world.

Cogitate began its maiden voyage into software with a fund accounting program with payroll services on an RPC 4000. In 1969 we began batch processing for accounting services which lasted until 1981. During that time, in order to run on mini computers we developed our own programming language and operating system. In 1981 we ported our programming language so that our fund accounting programs would function on micro computers. Along with these new capabilities we created a data backup system for our fund accounting customers.

In 1985 we developed our award winning Close Up remote control computer product which even received the Editors Choice Award from PC Magazine! For the next ten years we expanded our government software products, creating and selling many different modules including voter registration, utility billing, and tax receipting. In 1995 we began renovating and creating Windows friendly software. Today, Cogitate is focusing on the support and servicing of our fund accounting and utility billing packages and our latest software: 9G Backup.
