ClickPoint Understands Our Customers

Jun 15, 2009Business & Life
I would like to think in a perfect world we as managers and CEOs would just know everything from the get go. The truth is that running a software company takes a great amount of trial and error. The long road to success comes only from learning what your customers really need from their software. Finding ways to reduce the time it takes between trial and the errors that follow is what we have determined to be the key to success.

ClickPoint – The Beginning

Dec 02, 2008Business & Life
I wanted to start our blog off with the story of how we became ClickPoint.  I think it’s always important to get a good feel for an organization before you do business with them.  In all truthfulness I never imagined that I would be running a software company. I got my started working for a site called I always envisioned myself working as the head of an ad agency, marketing company, or some kind of organization where I could use the creative side.  It all happened about 6 years ago when I got my first real experience working with programmers and developers on small projects for a marketing company where I was vice president.  I immediately saw that although you have to be much more patient with software there is tremendous opportunity to use your creative attributes.Read More
