Building Momentum into 2017

Building Momentum into 2017

The new year is here! 2017 is a book of clean, blank pages waiting to be filled and brimming with potential.

With the beginning of the new year, I, like many of you, set aside time for reflection. It is easy for me to forget just how much was accomplished over the past 365 days when I’m in the midst of projects and tasks of my own. As I look back on 2016, I am pleased with just how much Golden Software has accomplished.

All Hand's Meeting 2016

b2ap3 thumbnail gsteam

This past weekend, the entire Golden Software team met in Golden for our 8th annual All Hands Meeting. Golden Software is primarily a telecommuting company with employees located all over the US. Every year, we gather all of the Golden Software team together in a single room. We sit down and talk about what we’ve accomplished, what the future holds, and ways we can improve to best serve our customers. We also play some games, gather with our family and co-workers for a great Saturday evening dinner, and reconnect with each other. It is always fun at the end of the meeting to go back home knowing how everyone’s kids are doing, what new personal hobbies we all have, and what significant events have happened since we last saw each other.

33 Years of Customer-Focused Mapping and Graphing

33 Years of Customer-Focused Mapping and Graphing

I was recently interviewed by Scientific Computing World (you can read the full article here), a global publication dedicated to providing computing and information technology resources to scientists and engineers. During this interview, I enjoyed discussing how the needs of these scientists and engineers have changed, and how Golden Software will continue meeting their needs in these ever changing times.

The month of March marks our 33rd anniversary, and as you can imagine, we have witnessed many changes over the past three decades! It’s difficult to recall days where printed image resolution of 24dpi was the norm, but that’s where we began. Our first product, PlotCall, was a breakthrough and offered 200dpi imagery resolution for computer generated maps. Fast forward to today and you’ll see our products used to generate maps and graphs for scientific publications, cutting-edge research, business intelligence reports, and even expert witness documents.
