Not the biggest, but the quickest!
Informer is definitely not the biggest company, but we are the quickest innovators. We were the first to launch an online realtime bank connection, the first to support live chats and the first to be able to add QR codes to invoices. Furthermore, we are partners in development of the Dutch tax authorities, which lead to the possibility of paying the tax declaration through online banking!

Being a Sustainable Organization is a choice
Attention for our Surroundings
In our daily business, we are trying to be as sustainable as possible. We believe this is a choice.
Examples of sustainability within Informer.
- Our office is heated by a ground source pump. This allows us to heat and cool in a C02-neutral way.
- We are trying our best to be a paperless office. When we do use paper, we use paper with a FSC© quality mark.
- Rechargeable batteries and sustainable light bulbs are natural to us.
- We use green energy.
- The datacenter arranging our hosting occurs in a datacenter using green energy.
- Using public transport is being stimulated and emphasized.
- All corporate cars are electric.
Attention for fellow people
At Informer, we would like to go an extra mile regarding sustainable business.
We allow every foundation with so-called ANBI status to use our program completely FREE.
The Informer Foundation receives a percentage of Informer’s turnover. This budget helps us support people in countries where the basics are not as obvious. For example, we have supported several African children in receiving education and dug a number of water wells in villages in Bangladesh. In 2018, we held a special Christmas Funding. The result? Two full classes of kids in the Kenyan village Mtangani were able to receive education for another year!
Attention for our employees
Informer has a hiring policy which offers everyone a chance: your name, color or background are not what we select on. We look at who you are and what you are capable of. Being yourself and making mistakes is also a part of this.
In exchange, we ask each employee to sign our Code of Conduct, in which we ask for the employee to be a representation for equality of all human, to be socially and ethically responsible, to deal with customers the right way and and to pursue our view on professional integrity.
An Impressive History
In 1993, our founder Remco Frühauf worked in his own administration office as an accountant. He used Microsoft DOS in combination with accounting software and thought: “This could be done so much easier, right?” After finding a programmer, it didn’t take long before Informer was born.
Informer’s cradle is settled in the year 1993. Entering the market in 1998 with an accessible accounting system for both Mac and Windows, Informer Account started pursuing the mission of making accounting easy. In 2002, another milestone was achieved, as Informer was the market leader in accounting software for Mac. Besides, Informer was chosen as second best program by well-known “PC Magazine”.
From offline to the Cloud
The market of accounting software has been going through many transitions since 1993. Eventually, the world of accounting made the step to the Cloud. In 2010, our online accounting software was released; InformerOnline. It consisted of new techniques, but still had the same goal and functionalities. Hence, our mission has been the same ever since the beginning: making accounting as accessible as possible for the entrepreneurial world.
