Our Story

In early 2010, Margaret was President of the Ben Franklin PTA and thought that there must be a better way to create the directory. She wanted to go green, utilize her love of technology and combine it with the benefits of her smartphone. She also saw the issue with the printed directory becoming outdated as soon as it was published. She went to her tennis friend who introduced her to Eric Danielson and John Julien of Taydan Enterprises, and they developed an app for the Ben Franklin directory. The response from the parents was immediate and overwhelming. As word got around about what Ben Franklin was doing, it was easy for Margaret to get 6 additional schools to try it out. She was asked to present at the Illinois PTA Convention, and won the PTA award for best use of Technology. From there, DirectorySpot was born!

As the founders, Eric, John, and Margaret work together to bring the perfect combination of technical (iOS, Android, web, database, security etc.), strategic and process knowledge to continually improve DirectorySpot while providing superior customer service.

As we continue to grow, we have expanded the team to include Joyce, Stephanie, and Lisa who all bring great experience and enthusiasm to DirectorySpot!
