The Insight Software Solutions Story
Michael D. Jones, the founder of Insight Software Solutions, started his career as an insurance company programmer. In addition he developed custom software programs for clients on the side.
Mike became intrigued with the shareware (try before you buy) marketing concept and started Insight Software Solutions in 1990. That year he developed the Interest Analyzer program to sell over the Internet. Shortly thereafter he received his first order and payment.
Mike liked the concept of getting paid for software he wrote and soon started developing other financial software products, including the Debt Analyzer - which we still sell and support today. Orders continued to arrive and Mike eventually made the decision to leave his full-time employment and give undivided attention to his fledgling company.
As sales increased it became time to hire someone to help package and fulfill the orders. In the early 90's practically all orders were shipped on floppy disk.
The business was incorporated in late 1995 and given the official name of Insight Software Solutions, Inc. It also became time to move out of Mike's basement and lease office space as the company grew.
During this time period we started moving away from financial programs and began creating macro (automation) software, Keyboard Express being the first product. We followed with ShortKeys and later developed what has turned into our flagship product, Macro Express.
In December 1999, Mike passed away suddenly. Fortunately he had the foresight to hire talented programmers and others to move his vision forward. Insight Software Solutions, Inc. has continued to expand since that time.
In 2001, the company moved to Kaysville, Utah, a town nestled between the Wasatch mountains and the Great Salt Lake, about 20 miles north of Salt Lake City. In 2004 we purchased our present office located on Main Street in downtown Kaysville.
