The last few months since the release of Táve 4 have been quite exciting. The resulting unprecedented growth has allowed us to significantly expand the Táve Team. We’ve gone from a two-man team this time last year to a team of seven, many of whom you’re likely familiar with if you’ve messaged us, attended one of our new weekly webinars, or participated in the Facebook Táve User Group.
I’m pleased to announce that one of the newest members of our team, Topher Villasimón, has stepped up to the role of Vice President of Product. Already this year, he has reorganized our support team and the process in which we respond to incoming messages to improve both our response times and the way we track issues and feature requests. He’s also overseeing our How-to site and is even working on a new and far more accessible documentation site to make it easier to dive deep into Táve.
Topher has also worked with Jason and me to create a new development, testing, and release process, as well as creating a roadmap of upcoming releases that balance and prioritize features and issues from our backlog into more manageably sized releases. The first of these releases is ready for publication when we return to the office from WPPI, while the second is in active development and the third and fourth are being outlined and sized.
By far, Topher’s most important function as VP of Product is that of customer advocate. While my background in cinema and photography lead to the creation of Táve, the majority of my time at Táve today is consumed by feature design and development. Táve’s mission of helping creative small businesses like yours to build a stronger and more profitable business depends not on my experience but on your day-to-day experience running your business with Táve. For that we need to hear from you, we need to know what you need, and we need to weave that knowledge into the development of the best possible product for your business. For that, Topher is your voice inside Táve.
If you’re attending WPPI, be sure to visit our booth (#1561) and meet Topher, Jason, and me, and share with us your thoughts and feedback. We’re also sharing a sneak peek of the release currently in development to get your feedback on our new streamlined approach to quoting, client driven quote upgrades, and simplified product configurations.
PS. Even if you can’t join us at WPPI this year, you can still take advantage of our double-bonus show special through the end of the week. This is our last special until “Black Friday”, so if you’re an admin, sign in and check out the details on your dashboard.
