In an economy where many businesses continue to cut back, Global Reach continues to grow. In 2011, Global Reach added new staff, new space, and new clients. Global Reach Internet Productions increased their workforce by more than 50% by adding eleven new staff members. To accommodate the growing staff, Global Reach added 1300 more square feet to their Ames office and doubled the space of their Des Moines office.
The growth also included acquiring two businesses. In November, Global Reach acquired Captain Jack Communications. In January 2012, Global Reach acquired Mission Creative in Dubuque. Combined together, Global Reach Internet Productions now manages more than 1300 websites with more than 1000 clients. These two acquisitions have allowed Global Reach to become the oldest and largest web development firm in the state of Iowa.
Global Reach CEO and President Iacovos Zachariades says the key to growing his business is great customer service. “We pride ourselves in having the best customer service for our web clients. This results in lots of referrals, and clients who continue to work with us year after year.”
With offices in Ames and Des Moines, Global Reach Internet Productions serves local, state, and international clients. Global Reach Internet Productions provides clients with a premier content management system for clients to manage their websites called SiteViz. SiteViz was created by Global Reach and allows clients to easily manage their content from anywhere they have an internet connection. Global Reach also works with clients to improve their search engine rankings.
