Google Isn’t the Only One Celebrating

Anyone want 4,000 vintage diskettes?

Twenty years ago it took 16 diskettes to install FOUNDATION for a client. (It would take over 4,000 to equal the storage on your phone!) Now, we can download the software straight to their computer. A lot’s changed in the last 20 years. Fortunately, many people haven’t.

This month we’re celebrating 20 years with Patty Walker, our installation coordinator and now our 11th employee to cross that milestone. For me, there’s a pride in watching an employee like her grow along with the company. On one hand, her job looks nothing like it did when it took the better part of a day and the U.S. Postal Service. On the other, not much has changed in the way she does it, with a warm charm that always makes our clients feel at ease as they embark on an intimidating process.

You’ve heard me talk before about the growth and changes we’ve seen over the years, but I’m also grateful for the people who have grown and adapted with us. And that means celebrating the ways we’ve stayed who we are, as well as all the employees and clients that have helped us along the way.
