Publishing process got you in a pickle?

Posted by Lisa Bos on Sep 1, 2017 11:28:16 AM

Long, long ago Jeff Wood made me a t-shirt that read "Publishing Process Got You in a Pickle?" accompanied by a hokey animated pickle graphic. It came up during today's planning meeting for the upcoming 2017 RSuite User Conference and had us all roaring.

Publishing Process Pickle.png The joke behind the shirt is lost to history, but we're still here seventeen years later, helping publishers re-imagine complex processes and deliver content in new ways. Today our customers include not only professional publishers, but also publishing teams in enterprises across a variety of industries.

If you have publishing challenges of your own, think about coming to the RSuite User Conference on September 19. I'll be sharing RSuite's past, present, and future in an uncomplicated way as I walk through our product roadmap. Don't miss the opportunity to see what's in store for the next versions of RSuite, including:

  • building in semantics for a more powerful and informative solution
  • making RSuite useful to a broader range of users and content
  • improving support for enterprise-scale deployments

(Yes, I still have the t-shirt. No, I won't wear it to the User Conference.)

What about Bob? (or why you won’t want to miss our customer panels at RSuiteUC16)

Posted by David M. Turner on Aug 26, 2016 11:19:41 AM

I do a lot of research and reading on the topic of customer success.  As a result, quotes like these often find their way to a sticky-note, my computer desktop, or a post on Slack:

  • When the customer comes first, the customer will last.” (Robert Half)

  • “What’s important is the progression from an organization that targets customers to extract value from a customer base to a fully customer-centric firm that excels at delivering value based on a deep understanding of customers’ needs, wants, and desires." (Robert G. Thompson)
  • “Whatever your business is, talk to your customers and provide them with what they want. It makes sense.” (Bob Bowman)
Inspired by these quotes, one of the things I’m most excited about at the upcoming RSuite User Conference is our customer panels.  We have one panel to feature newer customers and another composed of veteran clients and I’m downright PUMPED about what I’m going to hear.

Of course, if you have some stake in RSuite, these sessions will be equally or perhaps even more valuable to you.  Below are 3 key reasons why YOU can get "stoked" about these customer panels, too.

Note: you may have noticed (as I did) that my quotes above were all by guys named “Robert.” Keeping in the spirit, I decided to organize my key takeaways below based on famous quotes by other guys named Robert!  So have some fun as you read and see how well you know these famous Roberts…

Two roads diverged…

Whether you’re ahead, behind, or on the same version of RSuite as the panelists, it won’t take long to see that no two clients use RSuite in the same way.  You can take advantage of this fact by getting this sneak peek into how these other organizations prioritize/incorporate new functionality and how they creatively solve many of the same challenges you face.  Attending these panels will give you an unprecedented opportunity to collect ideas and really understand how RSuite has made all the difference.

The best laid schemes…

Another common theme in every RSuite implementation is that enterprise software projects don’t always go exactly as planned…and that’s okay. These customer panels will show you, little Mouse, you are not alone! <grin> Whether you are still considering RSuite or are in your nth phase of development, the experience of others in these panels can become your guide – giving you a huge advantage in your next project and helping you to create success more quickly.

Gotta whole lotta love…

Probably the best thing about these sessions is that you get to hear about real results and real NUMBERS and why these customers LOVE RSuite.  Baby, I’m not foolin’…this technology is making a huge difference for clients in tangible ways and these sessions will get you pumped about the possibilities.
