Fast Facts & History
Learn more about our key credentials and history.
To reflect our country of origin, we like to ingrain Switzerland into other aspects of our products. You may notice that our releases are all given names after one of the most famous things about our country: mountains.
Like the mountains that define Switzerland’s physical landscape, Picturepark has deep roots in the successful Swiss vocational training and education system which defines Switzerland’s educational landscape. Through the scheme, student apprentices gain theoretical understanding and practical experience. This model has helped make Switzerland the recognized world leader in precision.
Many long-time employees joined VIT under this program and chose to stay with the company after graduation.
Picturepark is made in Switzerland, but being Swiss is more than a nationality: it is a way we look at and do things. With over two decades of content management experience and industry-changing innovations, we are proud of our past.
Another aspect of Swiss culture is philanthropy. This is reflected in statistics as Switzerland has been shown to have one of the highest concentrations of grant or giving foundations in the world. Our founder, Bruno Jehle, operates a charity called KALPAS with his partner Matina Hämmerli, which focuses its efforts on development projects in the South of India. At Picturepark, we have our yearly tradition of donating to this worthwhile cause.
Swiss culture is not about conquering the world or using overly aggressive tactics. We strive hard to build high-quality products that contribute to and improve the lives of those who use them.
Picturepark is a proud member of swiss made software: the nationally and internationally recognized symbol for Swiss quality in software development.
