Company

There’s an old adage. You can’t know where you’re going, unless you know where you’ve been…

We’ve been around.

 

Back in 1988, Jack Sherdel opened the Digitec corporate headquarters in Orlando, Florida. At the time, The Walt Disney Company, Universal Studios and Nickelodeon all had production studios in Orlando, and Jack saw the opportunity.

The Name

When Jack Sherdel started Digitec, one of our clients was The Walt Disney Company, specifically Walt Disney World in Orlando. Digitec began by supplying digital technology to the Magic Kingdom for audio and video postproduction. And so, the name emerged: “Digital” “Technology” or Digitec.

New Media

During the 1990s, Digitec worked with many studios and production companies, producing and editing feature films and television shows. That heritage taught us a few things about production values, delivery schedules, and flexible working hours (if necessary, nights, weekends, whatever it takes to get the job done).

The internet opened up new opportunities for entertainment, commerce and education, and so we took this background and brought it to this new media.

In 1999, Jack Sherdel partnered with Jack McGrath — a digital media producer with a strong background in new media marketing and eLearning. McGrath’s philosophy — combine creativity and technology to bring innovation to clients — enabled Digitec to develop a strong team of developers and producers to create digital media productions for clients including The Walt Disney Company, NBC/Universal, Microsoft, Symantec, VMWare, Yum! Brands, Prentice Hall, and many others.

There has been one simple rule that has guided our company:

1. If you don’t go above and beyond for your clients, someone else will.

At Digitec Interactive we Transform Learning to Change Lives, that is all we do, and we strive everyday to do it better than anyone else.
