Zco celebrates 25th Anniversary

This year marks Zco’s 25th anniversary. When we started, there were no smartwatches, no smartphones, and only the most basic touchscreens. Desktop computers had a fraction of the power they possess today.

Zco was founded in 1989 by company president John Olapurath, a UNH graduate. Olapurath created Zco Corporation after selling another New Hampshire business, AimTech, to a company owned at the time by Microsoft’s Paul Allen.

iPad in Business presentation by Randy PetersonZco’s roots in custom software, including desktop and backend applications, evolved with the emergence of mobile technology. Olapurath saw the potential in Palm, Windows Mobile, and BlackBerry devices and positioned the company to take full advantage of the smartphone revolution. Its current mobile app development services cover iPhone, iPad, Android, and Windows Phone devices in addition to legacy technology.

Olapurath now personally oversees the company’s sole in-house product, PublicEye, a public safety solution used by police and fire departments nationwide. New Hampshire’s own Bedford and Portsmouth fire departments can be found on its website giving testimonials about the solution. Zco’s company Vice President Don Austin, who has been with the company for over 15 years, manages the enterprise software side of the business.
