Zeutschel GmbH Celebrates 60 Years in the Digitization Field

The Crowley Company’s longtime partner, Zeutschel GmbH, celebrated their 60th year in business in December 2021. The following blog, written by Zetuschel, is reposted with permission and details their growth as a market leader in the still media digitization technology field. What do the manuscripts of Johann Sebastian Bach, the written correspondence of Abraham Lincoln and the Cuban diary entries of Alexander von Humboldt have in common? They were all digitized with the scanning solutions from Zeutschel GmbH. The Tübingen, Germany company…

Any Big Deals Cooking?

A Tribute to Joan Crowley, Crowley’s Unofficial Queen When I first met “Mrs. Crowley” (it took me a while to call her Joan, although she insisted from our very first meeting), it felt a bit as I imagine it would feel to meet the Queen. In many respects, she truly was queen of The Crowley Company. Supporting her entrepreneur husband, Jerry and, following his passing, her sons Chris (now deceased), Pat and Kevin, Joan Crowley was family royalty in every…

Digitization Champions:
Recapping #AmericanArchivesMonth

As the crisp autumn air changes into a frosty winter breeze, I must accept that “spooky season” is over and with it ends Crowley’s daily #AmericanArchivesMonth social media shout-outs to archive clients using Crowley’s digitization products, services and support. For those that don’t follow Crowley online, now is the time to redeem yourself and follow @CrowleyScans on all platforms. While I begrudgingly exchange my ghosts, bats and witches for all things pumpkin, I’m comforted knowing that archives can still be celebrated…

Access Granted: Five Ways Crowley Supports Your Digitization Grant Process

I’m slightly embarrassed to admit that I’m a bad shopper. Starting in my early years of stalking the Barbie aisle for what felt like hours when my grandma would generously give me $10 to buy one toy and more recently showing itself after I spent a full year looking for a new car in my budget, purchasing decisions have not been my strong suit and have always included a lot of careful (read: painful) deliberation. In our industry, grant funding often…

Want to Get Into the Final Four? Work with Crowley…

We’re wrapping up March with a trip to the Final Four (four of the most coveted positions in the NCAA Division 1 single-elimination men’s basketball tournament). Along the way, we had a little fun and came up with some interesting 2021 statistics. Bottom line? You have a better shot at the Final Four when Crowley is your partner. First Round: 54.7% The first round of the tournament started with the top 64 teams in the United States. In 2021, 54.7% of these…

Colleen’s Crew(boat):
A Crowley Christmas Story

December 2021 Update: Colleen’s Crew(boat) is back in the water and sporting a few updates thanks to the dedicated volunteer team mentioned below. You can see it “live” on YouTube (but if you’re anywhere near Frederick, we recommend a personal visit. We guarantee you’ll leave with a smile!). This is not your typical Crowley blog post. The topic is not digitization, although there is just one degree of separation between the story you are about to read and The Crowley Company….

Business as Usual in an Unusual World

Whether you’re on the “abundance of caution” or the “this is crazy town” ends of the spectrum, the fact is that for the immediate future the COVID-19 virus infection has interrupted and changed every facet of our lives. We are alternately soothed or assaulted by the wealth – or dearth – of information and its many sources. At Crowley, our plan is to put one foot in front of the other as it is safe to do so. We know that…

Cheers to 40 Years!

On Saturday, February 1st, The Crowley Company (Crowley) marked its 40th anniversary since incorporation. I think our founder, Jerry Crowley, would be quite proud – and perhaps a little surprised – at how the company has evolved over the decades. From a one-man basement operation in Maryland to a 100+-team, three-location international company, the staff and geography are just two indications of the changes we’ve seen over the years. In many respects, technology has advanced over these 40 years in ways only imagined by Hanna-Barbera in…

Patrick Hill’s Digitization Playbook

Vince Lombardi. Coach from Cheers. Patrick Hill. What do these people have in common? They’re born to coach a team (or, in the case of Cheers, a bar full of Bostonians. Same thing, right?). In just nine months as Director of Crowley Imaging Services (Crowley), Patrick Hill has utilized his leadership, business and IT experiences to enhance the productivity and profitability of Crowley’s award-winning digitization service bureau. Coming into the fourth quarter of his first year, I sat with Hill to talk…

Hard Head, Soft Heart: The Legacy of Chris Crowley

With heavy hearts, we said our final goodbyes this past Friday to the longtime president and co-owner of our company. It became quickly evident over the course of the week between his passing and his funeral, that Christopher William Crowley had made a worldwide impact in the industry he loved. Close to home, with the people he loved even more (and who loved him back), the impact was exponentially larger. There were no shortage of stories. Some were business. Some were personal….
