Picture Keeper Partners with Carlton J. Kell High School’s DECA Program!

Atlanta, GA ​(October 26, 2017) — Simplified IT Products, LLC, the makers of Picture Keeper, is excited to announce a partnership with Carlton J. Kell High School’s DECA program. DECA is an international association that prepares high school and college students for professional roles in marketing, finance, hospitality, and management. Picture Keeper continues its investment in the dreams of young minds by partnering with a local Marietta high school to give their DECA students hands-on insight into an entrepreneurial business.

Michael Chasteen, Marketing Teacher and DECA Advisor at Kell High School, has envisioned a great future for their program. As part of their membership, students operate the school cafe, school store, and more in order to gain hands-on experience with operating a business. Chasteen aims to provide his students with as many real-world opportunities as possible. Chasteen states, “The Kell DECA students will benefit greatly from learning and observing from the everyday business activities of Picture Keeper.”

Aria Morgan, Director of Marketing stated, “We are excited to provide opportunities to selected DECA students to learn about our business and the everyday operations behind Picture Keeper’s product production/fulfillment and digital marketing. We are hopeful and excited to see the development of Kell High School’s DECA program as we continue our partnership.” For more information, visit: picturekeeper.com/pages/DECA.


When a close friend lost all of her pictures on her computer during a lightning storm, Simplified IT Products' founder and CEO Matt Stanchie, was struck by inspiration. With Matt’s background in technology, he began to develop a simple, foolproof way to protect digital images. As a result, he created Picture Keeper, a USB drive with built in software that can search and copy all the digital files from a computer onto itself. Picture Keeper takes the hassle out of backing up digital files - just plug in, click “Start Backup,” and Picture Keeper does the work for you while skipping duplicates.

Today, Picture Keeper helps hundreds of thousands of busy people and families alike backup and protect irreplaceable memories from their smartphones, computers and tablets in a way that is easy and convenient.
