Photodex Celebrates 25 Years: Our Favorite Moments

This year has certainly been exciting. Last month we celebrated ProShow’s 10th anniversary and today we’re so excited to be celebrating 25 years in business. There have been so many special moments that have made up the last 25 years. We asked a few members of our team to share their favorite ones.

John, Customer Service Assistant Manager
I was helping a nice gentleman on the phone who was pretty new to computers but wanted to create a DVD slideshow to play at his family reunion. It took some time but we managed to get it finished and ready for his event. A few weeks went by and I got a call from him saying the slideshow was a success and that I had helped make this memory possible for him and his family. I think about that every time I help someone, knowing I am likely helping someone with a special moment of their life.

Lori, Accounting
A few days after I started working at Photodex, one of our executives got a remote control mini Hummer and attached a wifi camera to the top and drove it around the office, all while hiding back in his office. He even delivered paperwork to me via the hummer! Wasn’t that thing “Photodex Yellow??” LOL! It was then that I knew Photodex was going to be a great place to work. And it has been!

Josh, Quality Assurance Manager
I’ve had a few favorite moments here at Photodex. When you can help someone turn their pile of photos into a 50th wedding anniversary show or really nail that graduation video, those are good times. I enjoy that process. What really sticks out though are those times when I’ve been able to help someone finish up a memorial show that does justice to their loved one. It’s hard not to be moved by those experiences and there are some people, some shows, I think I’ll always remember.

Brandon, Customer Support Manager
My proudest moment at Photodex was accepting the 2012 People’s Choice award for Best Customer Service in the software industry! Our support staff is one of a kind and it was an honor to accept this because it was our customers who took the time to vote for our team. That made it truly special.

Paul Schmidt, President & Founder
It’s hard to pinpoint my favorite moment over the years because there have been so many special ones and for that I am very grateful. Recently, one of my most proud moments was the release of ProShow 5.0, which was a significant body of work to advance the ProShow technology. I’m looking forward to more advances, especially those that make our software more powerful and easy-to-use, simultaneously.
