Happy Holidays from VSee!

It’s been a wonderful year for VSee:  Several major version releases, some very large customer deployments, World Refugee Day with Hillary Clinton and Angelina Jolie, a townhall meeting on Facebook for Mandy Moore and Nothing But Nets, helping the Playing for Change Band perform in Boston simultaneously with a music school in South Africa, and then capping it off with a phenomenal time at Dreamforce!

And of course, all of you!

Happy Holidays!

That’s it for this year.  (Yes, that’s a remote in Penny’s hand.)
