Conference your Engineers into Sales

Back in December, this fantastic post, It’s All About Selling for Survival, by Vivek Wadhwa, showed up on TechCrunch.  Vivek makes an extremely compelling case that the best salesmen in a software organization are the programmers.  And we believe him. We’ve been including our programmers in sales with phenomenal results, so we…

Every day I have at least one conversation that revolves around using VC (“video conferencing” or “video collaboration”) to “get things done” rather than “meet”.  Obviously efforts to increase acceptance of putting video collaboration tools where they’re most beneficial are gaining traction.

Applications Abound

My dad’s a lawyer. Yes, we’ve heard all the jokes.  Heck, I like to tell them.  But I’m proud to say he’s one of the good ones. He’s also a good example of what I was writing about at the end of last week.  You know—that Hillary’s speech is a…
