No, we didn't get bought by GLOBAL-OMNI-MEDIA-CORP.com over the weekend or anything. But while you may mostly know us from sales calls and support tickets, the fact is that we are a bunch of living, breathing human beings (also, dogs) who get up and go to work every day. Since the day I started -- almost EXACTLY six months ago -- that place has been our extremely cramped office on 18th and S, here in Washington, DC.
Fortunately, thanks to customers, supporters, and advocates like you, we're doing pretty well these days. So as our we add more engineers to build a better Contactually, and grow our Customer Success team to make sure you're getting value out of your account, we're also moving to bigger, better digs to make all that progress possible. When you're working at a growing startup, nobody wants to lose a day moving a bunch of boxes. But we're all VERY confident the move is going to make our lives (and by extension, your lives) much easier, so it's a price we're willing to pay. After all, this is Contactually's home!
(But yes... things are still a bit of a mess around here, so just ignore the furniture-moving sounds in the background if you hop on the phone with us over the next few days.)
Anyways, along with our move (shown in the above video), I'd wanted to mention that we're opening up a dedicated Contactually category here on the blog. While we're still going to keep providing you all kinds advice for sales, marketing, networking and other everyday topics, we also want to do a better job talking about what's going on with your favorite relationship-based CRM. With our bigger, even awesome-r development team hard at work, there's a lot to talk about -- new features, better performance, and a million tiny tweaks to make your everyday interactions that much better. We may not get to them all here, but we're going to try to do a better job keeping you in the loop here on the blog.
So here's to new beginnings, both online and off. If you want to send us an office-warming gift, I suggest a ping-pong table. That'll really boost our startup credibility.
