Who we are
QuizXpress Brand Story
We built the all-in-one Game Show Production system. So you can create high-end, professional gameshows.
We are a software development company based in The Netherlands and we specialize in the development of custom audience response solutions and interactive gaming concepts. Our mission is to offer the most flexible, most productive and best looking game show production software on the market.
A long, long time ago Michel and Bart were working for a very serious company, building very serious software for the insurance industry…
Every three months the company asked one of the teams to organize a small entertaining event for their colleagues to have a drink and relax a bit. When it was our turn we came up with the idea of organizing a quiz night. The first gameshow we built was made of an old keyboard we hacked with 6 guitar pedals linked to the function keys with long wires, connected to PowerPoint by a plugin we wrote. We programmed a nice quiz show, ran the show ourselves and had a great evening with our then colleagues. At that moment we realized two things: some people are better at presenting quizzes than at creating the tools for it (not us!) AND quiz shows are a fun way of interacting with people, our audience at the time was actively engaged and having a great time.
We ran the show, made fun of the boss and had a great evening. The only problem was that one of the guitar switches triggered the F1 function key, which was also the key to open the PowerPoint Help window. But hey, it was a beta version!
After that, we started building some prototypes for a better system and we even tried building our own wireless buzzers. We worked hard on the system into what became the first official release of QuizXpress! After the release of QuizXpress and getting our first clients, things expanded quickly. We got in touch with several partners globally, who helped us putting QuizXpress on the map.
For and with our professional users we expanded QuizXpress to become the all-in-one game show solution it is today. Our company is big enough to be a serious player in the market and small enough to create flexible solutions for our clients. QuizXpress is available in 5 languages and is used in over 1500 locations worldwide.
Does that mean we are almost finished ? No way! Keep watching this space for new exciting things to come!

Bart has always been interested in how stuff works. After a study in electronics he switched to software engineering and that quickly became his passion. Building cool stuff that looks good, gives people a fun night and helps others building a business is a great joy to him.
