In no more than 30 words, describe the goods or services your offer: We are an online open social collaboration platform that encompasses to-do lists, live chat, calendars, task management, people and project discovery, social accountability, cloud-based storage and more.
Who are your customers? We offer an ideal, all-in-one platform for individuals trying to organize their busy lives, entrepreneurs building businesses and managing teams, and large organizations strategizing and communicating across the globe.
What’s the most important part of your job? Facilitating meaningful connections for our product users is extremely important. We’re trying to help simplify people’s lives, so although we’re building technology, we strive for a simple product experience where the technology “gets out of the way” so that humans can focus on connecting and collaborating, instead of managing the work of work.
Any business lessons you’d wish to share from the recent recession? More than ever, how you treat your customers, employees and partners is critically important. Not every good business has been able to stick around, but we all tend to gravitate and patronize brands that have transparency, honor and concern for more than profits.
Any suggestions on how Nevada might improve its business climate? More cross-agency support for small business would be appreciated. A consolidated website would help businesses access all corporate logistical information and growth options, such as available funding resources, and would simplify the process of doing business in Southern Nevada.
