Great Ideas

Filed in by Kirk Averett | November 22, 2006 1:13 am

A couple of months ago we launched Idea Central[1], a website where our customers and employees can submit ideas for things they’d like us to work on. This has turned out to be one of the best moves we’ve made in a long time. In just two months we’ve accumulated more than 200 really great ideas.
When we launched, I promised that we would take Idea Central seriously, and we have. In fact, we just added a ‘Built Ideas’[2] section to the left menu so you can see what projects we’ve already completed. Some are still in beta[3], but are finished and will be released soon.
Thanks to everyone who has participated thus far. Not only have your ideas helped guide our product direction, but they also continue to give us justification to add resources to our product development team, which helps to move things along even faster.
