The only thing more fun than going to Orlando’s Disneyland, is attending the Midsize Enterprise Summit (MES) at Disney’s Contemporary Resort – where 250 CIOs from around the world gather every year to learn about the latest innovations.
ShoreTel participated and presented to all CIOs in closed boardroom meetings. At the end of the conference, CIOs cast their vote for the best solutions. ShoreTel was the single winner of the Best Software Solution, over competitors like Google and Microsoft. I was really honored to go on stage with regional director and rock star Rick Boyd to accept the award.
We also had the opportunity to demonstrate our solutions in the vendor showcase. It’s pretty cool that Craig Gironda can set up a live working ShoreTel solution in 10 minutes! (It was actually seven minutes, but who’s counting…) Now that’s a brilliantly simple solution at its finest.
But now it is time to relax and get ready for Interop – our largest show of the year, including meetings between customers and CEO Peter Blackmore, an invitation-only reception and much more. (We even have a lead generation contest for our sales team where they win tickets to Penn and Teller’s show where they show how to make our competitors’ sales disappear.) And that’s no illusion, given our latest financial results with record sales, record margins and 1,000 new customers not gambling with complex systems and going with our brilliantly simple solutions with the proven lowest total cost of ownership.
Congratulations to our entire team at MES – teamwork at its finest!
Can’t wait to see you in Las Vegas this week! Stop by our booth (#933) to see what else we’ve got going on.
