|ThePowerXChange has been based in beautiful Colorado since 1991 and distributes nearly all extension-based technology used by InDesign, QuarkXPress, Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, After Effects, Director, FreeHand, PageMaker, Painter, Premiere, QuarkPublishingSystem, and QuarkXPress Passport.In addition to these extensions, we also distribute many stand-alone applications geared toward the designer, publisher, and printer.
Founded by Cyndie Shaffstall, ThePowerXChange hosts a web site of thousands of products that enable users to search using keywords, product names, core applications, or categories. In addition, the web site contains thousands of megabytes of product demos, freeware, shareware, and updaters.
The tech-support line at the web site is staffed with knowledgeable personnel to answer frequently asked questions and to solve difficult production issues. The company also provides pre- and post-sale technical support by phone or email to assist users in finding products that alleviate production struggles.
As a distributor, ThePowerXChange provides a liaison network to encourage software developers to support the demo program and to provide fully functional demos that are time sensitive so that products can be made available on the web and in the database-driven 2003 Extension Products Reference Catalogue.
Working as the distributor of all extensions, ThePowerXChange staff is able to configure a group of products to work together across multiple platforms and applications. For instance, a QuarkXPress user probably also uses Photoshop and Illustrator and the user's extension-based solution may span their entire selection of core applications. ThePowerXChange, as a non-partial entity, will thereby benefit the end user eliminating the need to search multiple sources for products that will resolve their production issue.
