Company History

Since its inception in 1984, New Age Media Systems’ goals have been to provide the leading software tools and top-notch support for clients utilizing syndicated or proprietary data who are involved in media planning, research, sales and marketing of all media.

The first dot-com domain name is registered on March 15, years before the World Wide Web would mark the formal beginning of Internet history.

​NAMSI’s founding partners pioneered the advent of electronic publishing with Xpedite!, the first software package to offer each SMRB printed data volume on a single 5¼” floppy disk via a proprietary compression/retrieval technique.

​NAMSI was the first company to develop and market the only PC-based crosstabulation system for syndicated survey data in the media/advertising industry.

​Tim Berners-Lee, a researcher at CERN, the high-energy physics laboratory in Geneva, develops HyperText Markup Language (HTML), giving rise to the World Wide Web.

New Age was the first to offer the industry unlimited ‘high speed’ (9600 baud) access to survey data for a fixed price.  Keep in mind our competitors were only running at 2400 baud.

​The Pentium microprocessor advances the use of graphics and music on PCs.

Sergey Brin and Larry Page develop the Google search engine at Stanford University.

​​Our software was totally re-written and was accessible via the Internet or direct dial phone line. Even then we were platform-independent (PC/Mac/Unix) and could run under the two current browsers (Netscape or Internet Explorer).  Minimal user maintenance was achieved by storing user information, runs, e-codebooks, and program files on our servers and not on local PC/MAC or network, which is what our competitors were doing. We hear some still are doing this today. This architecture allowed for file (session) sharing, virtual user team creation and telecommuting.  New Age’s client support personnel could share a user’s file and give advice when questions or problems arose.

The term Wi-Fi becomes part of the computing language and users begin connecting to the Internet without wires.
