Why we built Pixtel?
We have been in software development for the past three decades building world-class products, creating new technology markets and excelling at delivering large-scale products. And while doing this, we have used a variety of open source and commercial screen capture tools in the past. Almost all the screen capture tools stop at just providing a single screenshot capture and with some basic features to annotate it. Users have to organize and manage captured screenshots and share them using external tools and applications. Some advanced usage requires photo editing tools to manipulate the captured screens.
Having experienced the need firsthand, we made a decision to build an internal tool for improving the productivity of our engineers and managers who have been, without realizing, spending a significant amount of productive time on capturing, annotating, sharing and managing screens and images.
What started out as an innovative small project intended for internal use, slowly grew into a comprehensive, yet an easy-to-use product that we know today as Pixtel.
