Our story

Once upon a time, Michel and Bart found themselves working at a very serious company, where they diligently crafted software for the insurance industry…

Every quarter, the company tasked a team with organizing a light-hearted event for their hardworking colleagues to unwind and enjoy a drink. When it was our turn, we decided on something unique—a quiz night. Our first gameshow was a makeshift creation using an old keyboard hacked with 6 guitar pedals connected to function keys via long wires, all tied together with a plugin we coded for PowerPoint. With this setup, we orchestrated an entertaining quiz show, hosting the event ourselves and sparking laughter and enjoyment among our colleagues. It was during this moment that we realized two things: some people excel at presenting quizzes, while others, like us, thrive in crafting the tools for them. Additionally, we discovered that quiz shows are a delightful way to engage with an audience—our colleagues were actively participating and having a blast.

Despite a minor hiccup where one of the guitar switches accidentally triggered the F1 function key, opening the PowerPoint Help window (a classic beta version mishap!), the evening was a resounding success.

Inspired by this experience, we embarked on creating prototypes for a more sophisticated system, even experimenting with designing our own wireless buzzers. Our dedication bore fruit, leading to the birth of the first official release of QuizXpress! As word spread and we gained our initial clients, QuizXpress quickly gained traction. Establishing partnerships with like-minded individuals globally, we worked together to put QuizXpress on the world map.

In collaboration with our professional users, we evolved QuizXpress into the comprehensive game show solution it is today. Our company has grown to be a significant player in the market, yet we remain agile enough to provide tailored solutions for our clients. Now available in 5 languages and utilized in over 1500 locations worldwide, QuizXpress has become a staple in interactive entertainment.

But does this mean our journey is nearing its end? Not even close! Stay tuned for exciting developments ahead—there’s more to come from QuizXpress!
