Here at Voalte we’re literally bursting at the seams. Our second floor office that cavernous is now filled with talented staff, and we’re expanding into the adjacent floor. In a few short months we’re moving to an entirely new location, configured specifically with a Voalte-style layout. The steady flow of new staff has forced us to formalize our on-boarding process, although we still try to not take things too seriously around here. And on a fairly frequent basis, one of our sophomore hires is awarded with their first pair of pink pants – a symbolic gesture to recognize an achievement like delivering exceptional service, landing a new account, or pushing the limits of computing technology. We’ve even moved up to industrial-grade coffee maker, and retired the trusty Keurig that got us all here, one cup at a time.
But employee growth represents more than just new faces; it is a proxy of the success of Voalte in the marketplace. When I first arrived (eons ago — two years!), many hospitals were simply not ready for Voalte and smartphones at the point-of-care. Common objections revolved around device security, durability, WiFi reliability, and even the perceived extravagance of using an iPhone at work when many users were still using clam phones.
How things have changed. The majority of our prospects now look at a communication purchase from a completely different perspective: “Are we going commit to a legacy cordless-telephone solution for the next 5 years, or are we finally ready to embrace the undeniable power that Voalte places in the hands of our users?” The answer we’re hearing these days is the latter. And with several new initiatives in our product pipeline, we’re all thrilled to roll out our next set of innovations to this evolved market.
Looks like we’d better stay in touch with the company realtor – I think we’re going to need even more space.
