I am Jack Schroeder and
I have been building business-to-business web pages for Burlington Northern
Santa Fe Railway since 1996. My webmaster responsibilities at the railroad
are for the Agricultural Products Marketing Unit, and covers over 10,000
web pages of content, including nearly 300 menus, 1,800 web pages of grain
elevators, 2,400 web pages of price lists, and 2,200 downloadable files
of pricing information. According to the major grain companies like ADM,
Cargill, ConAgra, CHS and others, BNSF’s Ag Web site,
known as "ACRES" is considered the ‘best’ among all railroads
in North America.
In the summer of 1999, I decided to use my experience with the railroad
to start a small part time business of my own, making affordable web pages
for small business in the Northeast Tarrant county area where I live.
I have a solid foundation
in image processing and editing. In my home I have top quality professional
scanning and photo editing equipment, the same in fact that we use at
Burlington Northern Santa Fe. I have scanned thousands of pictures. I
frequently do touch up work such as removing red eye, removing telephone
poles, changing the color of buildings and skies, adding clouds, etc.
I also have professional quality 35mm photographic equipment, a darkroom
built into my home and have taken many classroom courses in photography
The past 15 years I have
worked in a marketing department, with responsibility for delivering freight
transportation prices to customers throughout the world in the grain trading
and processing industry. This involves 3.4 million prices published in
a 5,500-page price book, with an average of 500 pages changing each week.
My years of working a marketing environment have lead me to have a strong
focus on the information needs of customers.
