A Little Bit About Inspire
Inspire is a leader in developing solutions so that Marketing Managers can do more. Our specialty, company webstores is designed to be more than a normal e-commerce experience. We think about how your marketing department functions and design the software to streamline common interactions.
Inspire launched in 1968 as a business forms and print management firm, offering checks, letterhead and envelopes. Typical clientele during this time included local associations, banks and health care affiliates. The subscription-based business model quickly grew from a basement operation to needing it’s own building—and shortly after—a bigger staff. It was during these early days that the culture of accountability and our strong work ethic was engrained into our firm’s DNA.
