Employee impressions from the home office

Always a good place to work - for me already since 2008

At ProjectWizards, we work remotely from home. Always have. With the outbreak of the Corona pandemic, the discussion in Germany about working from home became more and more urgent. We can only smile tiredly about this, after all, we have been doing this for years and very successfully.

The advantages outweigh the disadvantages, for example that you only have a few steps to work every day, but you can still see your colleagues directly and contact them in a short time. Thanks to modern work devices and apps, we are all connected and can concentrate wonderfully on our work. We don't know any disturbances caused by the noise of an open-plan office.

We even have a set up virtual coffee kitchen where people can discuss and laugh apart from work. But that's not all. Every now and then, as just happened this week, there is also a nice surprise that is not virtual in nature.

The ProjectWizards Corona Care Package

The parcel carrier rings the doorbell and a black package with a Merlin Project sticker is handed over. Inside is a "Corona Care Package" containing everything needed for survival in these days. Two small bottles of Prosecco for the good mood, many small chocolate bars for even more good mood and several FFP2 masks, so that all colleagues come through the pandemic unharmed.

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this team. Attention like this is what has set us apart for years, a sworn community working on great products and the customers out there appreciate it!

An iPhone App and a Blog Entry

Phone Memos

Time flies. Since the first version of telephone memo a felt eternity has passed. Back then in 2003 Frank Blome had written the app for the Mac.

Eventually, dust grew over the matter. After a period of archaeological proportions, at least in the digital world, Frank Blome revived the idea in early 2020.

Phone Memos, the new app by ProjectWizards and is now available for iOS.

An old friend, Stefan Kremer, posted a nice review in his blog about the app. The talented in learning languages among you, who can read and understand German, can dive into the history of the app there.
