Couldn’t agree with your more Philip, we’ve been using Yammer for a while at Streamtime – we’re spread out across 7 locations, 4 countries and multiple time zones and Yammer keeps us together. We too have live customer feedback feeds going into Yammer. Its helped keep the internal emails down to a minimum too which is fantastic.

Thanks for posting this video. Just signed up to Yammer to give it a try. We are a small office but I think that this will be a very useful tool.

Security of information however would be the cautionary note being a SaaS product. At least in perception, as a SaaS product there is risk, however small, that confidential business information is being transacted. I would be interested in how Xero evaluated that risk.

Xero is going global in Hong Kong

I recently attended the RISE Conference in Hong Kong with Rod Drury and Victoria Crone. This was a twofold trip for us, make inroads into Hong Kong for Xero and meet with a group of inspired startups at RISE. The big theme at this year’s RISE Conference was globalization. The fact that the conference, which is ...
