Vince has just returned from a teambuilding trip in Madrid where we had a kickoff for our brand-new Cloud Project! This project has been kept under wraps for a while and will impact how we and our customers work for many years to come. The sky is the limit, so where do we go from here? What will our applications (Vince Excel, Vince Butler, and Vince Security) look like and how will they interact with our Cloud solution?
Let’s find out..
The kickoff started with small groups brainstorming fresh ideas for sales, branding, and future developments for our new Cloud Project. While we cannot reveal every little detail, what we can say is that this new path we’re about to go down is very interesting. It is important to have both a short-term and long-term vision because rarely does anything remain the same forever. Markets evolve. Solutions evolve. And technology evolves. This is why we always like to think ahead and ask critical questions like:
What will our customers’ needs be in two years’ time? What about five? What will the Vince portfolio of applications and services look like in the year 2025.
After the group discussion, we got together to share our ideas and have another brainstorming session. When all the groups were done presenting their thoughts and concepts, it was time for a presentation by Janne Kinghed (CTO). Janne has been working on the Cloud Project together with Thormod Berger (Head of Development) for a while now, so he updated us on the timeline of the project and what will happen in the coming weeks and months. Simply put, we want to simplify how our customers interact with our applications (all while ensuring their needs remain our top focus).
Overall, this was a really creative and interesting day.
We at Vince are excited about the direction we are heading in and cannot wait to roll out our fresh initiative to customers in the near future. We are also hoping to offer our SmartApps Software as a service at the end of 2020, which will be hosted on Amazon’s Web Service.
