Today, we let Email Center Pro 2.0 out of the starting gate. Flush with a new user interface and a host of initial enhancements, we firmly believe that we’re offering a service capable of helping to reshape the way users think about work flow, in general, and email, specifically.
And that’s a good thing, because those skates you see over there to the right represent a small component of how strongly we at Palo Alto believe in Email Center Pro. You can skim through the other posts on this blog and find the one related to the “Solidarity Experiment”. The four-wheelers over there are the actual pair being worn to work every day by our VP of Customer Experience, Jake Weatherly.
He’s going to do so until Email Center Pro can claim 4,000 users. He started, as did all of the participants of the experiment, when were at about 2,000 users. Now that we’ve climbed above 2,200, Jake can be heard singing “Y-M-C-A” as he whips around the office as if he was carrying burgers and crinkly fries to the drive-in restaurant customers.
My hunch is that Jake selected “wear roller skates” as his “sacrifice” because he secretly wanted to know what it might be like to go about 7’3″ for six or eight weeks. Interesting that he also bought a very large truck and started drinking Miller Genuine Draft.
Over the coming weeks, as Jake literally spins around the office, and the other participants in this cruel little undertaking suffer as well, Email Center Pro 2.0 will realize a host of new feature packages that elevate it into a rich service capable of providing a solution to a wide swath of communication challenges.
