Starvation is a terrible thing, but a child going hungry is just cruel. Children need nourishment for development, both in the physical aspect and mental. Simply, it has a great impact in the well being of a child.
At NGenSoft we believe in helping in great causes, so when a friend mentioned the Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation event, I jumped at the chance to help.
I’m the one on the left.
The event went off without a hitch, to a packed house. This is great, since 100% of ticket sales goes to support the No Kid Hungry efforts.
Money helps, but time is priceless. Volunteering, is not only good for the soul, but sometimes can have a bigger impact than anything money can buy.
I got to help a friend, help kids, and I had a great time. I gave my time, but I feel I got a lot more in return.
Find your own way to give back. There are plenty of great causes that you could make in difference in.
I know there may be some confusion based on some reviews we’ve received on the Chrome Web store and couple others, so just want to set some things straight.
SlateCRM will have a free plan, but will also offer premium features for a monthly fee of *$14.99. Of course we’ll notify all of our customers in advance when we will start offering the premium features. We don’t require a credit card at sign up, so register for your SlateCRM account.
Thanks Lain for letting me know I wasn’t clear enough :)
If you’re like me, you find it easier to click on a link than having to cut and paste. In SlateCRM you can do just that when you add a link on a task, status, or a note. You can add the URL or link, then save it. Then simply click it next time you have to go back to it.
I’ve created a short video for you to see how easy it really is.
Well…we’re not really playing a game of tag, but we did just add the “tag” feature in SlateCRM.
One feature often found is the idea of folders, or groups. While this works fine at times we wanted to take a different approach. Mainly, because we felt that things are often not “black or white”, but rather can be multiple things, and having a rigid classification system would force people to make unnecessary compromises. Instead, we chose to go with a tagging approach. Allowing you to tag your contacts, making easier to find later. Say for example Tim is one of your contacts, he is both a friend and colleague at a partner firm. You can tag Tim with both, or add as many as the situation calls for. Later, when you are quickly looking for friends, you can find Tim and many others. I’m sure you’ll find “tagging” a great feature, so try it out.
Do you need a demo? We have just the thing for you! A video showing you how to tag your contacts.
There is something psychological about about seeing the person’s face. Emotions are triggered, memories are recalled, you might even get a sense for the person even if you have never met. Many of us use or have used avatar’s in software applications for some time. However, being able to actually see what they look like, even when it’s an old photograph always makes it more personal.
Perhaps it has something to do with being identifiable.
The concept seems to be extend to using abstract avatars, whether popular Simpson’s styled character’s or movie characters.
More and more, I notice friends and colleagues updating their smart phones with the person’s actual mug.
We originally became aware of this as a side effect, while working on SlateCRM. We found that we enjoyed using the application more when there were actual pictures rather than the generic placeholder.
Adding a friendly face doesn’t just make for a better feature, but a better way of interacting with the app you use daily. Isn’t that what the social revoluation is about?!
So go ahead, add pictures to your existing applications such as Facebook, SlateCRM, or even the contacts on your phone. You’ll be happier for it.
Sharing information with certain groups or individuals is an important part of a collaborative environment. With SlateCRM you can create “groups” to scope which colleagues to share certain sensitive or otherwise pertinent information.
I could tell you all about how this feature works, but I’d rather show you. So be sure to check out the new video on “how to create groups” and start making the most of your collaboration with others.
The opportunities of interacting and sharing with you, our customers and supporters are endless. We hope you’ll find the videos instructional and helpful, especially if you are using SlateCRM. We are currently aiming to keep the videos short, under 3 minutes, but we also know there will be some that expand further on concepts and will need to be longer.
We’re already working on more videos! In the meantime, if you have ideas for videos you would like to see email us (video suggestions).
As they say, if “a picture is worth a thousand words” perhaps a video is a few more.
