When we introduced CorelDRAW in 1989, we knew we had something special on our hands. With the first graphics software for the Windows® platform, Corel changed the way people express and share ideas—and users have been trusting their ideas to Corel products ever since.
Over the years, Corel has brought a spirit of innovation to the development of a range of award-winning products that includes graphics, painting, photo, video and office software. We've also earned a reputation for delivering high-quality products that are easy to learn and use, and help people achieve new levels of productivity. But more than that, we've built a relationship with a community of users—now 100 million strong—who have amazed and delighted us with everything they create using our software.
What our users do with our products says more about them than we ever could. That's why we're proud to share their stories and examples of their work on our website and in our communities. We're also inspired by the talent we see in the entries to our design contests, and the passion reflected in all the photos, videos and digital art our customers share online.
Today, our products—like our users—are embracing new possibilities. We're releasing more mobile apps, exciting 3D technology and products for new platforms. Plus, we continue to add exciting new capabilities to our popular products to ensure our users always have the quickest path to great results.
In 2011, we launched Corel Cares, a new philanthropy program inspired by our employees' desire to pursue a broader mission for the company, one with a lasting social and human impact. Focused on supporting children, education and the arts, in disadvantaged or underserved communities, Corel Cares channels the commitment and compassion of Corel's global employees into a common cause. We've partnered with Room to Read, an internationally recognized organization that's helping to transform the lives of millions of children—and their communities—by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education.
Corel's headquarters are in Ottawa, Canada, with major offices in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Taiwan, China and Japan. Our products are available around the world through a well-established network of international resellers, retailers, original equipment manufacturers, online providers and on our websites. Corel's product line includes CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite, Painter®, Corel DESIGNER® Technical Suite, PaintShop® Pro, VideoStudio®, WinDVD®, WordPerfect® Office and WinZip®.
One of the things we enjoy most at Corel is getting to know our customers. If you'd like to connect with us, please join our communities, check out our blog or follow us on Twitter. We'd love to hear from you!
