But why 'The Purple Guys'?

We had another name that was not easy to remember or pronounce but our logo was purple. One day we decided to get purple shirts as a team uniform and as soon as we started wearing them, our customers started saying “the purple guys are here!” We all know the customer is always right and as they say, the rest is history.
