Great atmosphere at Poken Lausannne right as we speak. Poken partners from all around the world are gathering in Lausanne to attend the 2nd Annual Poken Reseller Summit. The Summit comes as a result of the success of last years event where the Poken partners contributed towards the product roadmap.
The goal of the Summit is to keep our resellers updated with the latest Poken features and improvements and also to establish and strengthen the company’s vision and mission worldwide.
The Summit started early in the morning and will last 2 days. So far, the reaction of the resellers has been beyond expectation, where the proactive and constructive questions and feedback just hasn’t stopped!
This feedback is giving us insights into the global market, local client requests and the feedback of our end users, bringing us closer to them. Also, by understanding where the interest of our users lies, we can adapt and enhance our products so that they will better fit and support the existing market.
High Four to this amazing reseller team !
Dear Poken community,
Christmas is just two days away, and we are turning our thoughts and high spirits to you, our awesome Poken community. We’ve had a lot of fun this year, accomplished a great deal, met some challenges and most importantly we’ve seen a significant growth for Poken products and services. It make us humble, and thankful towards you, our great user community. Your constant feedback, ideas and suggestions have been a true help in the improvement of all things Poken.
A vital and important part of this community is our resellers. We would like to thank all our worldwide resellers. You have been amazing to us — and to our users — and you have continuously shown extreme dedication and support.
This is also the time to begin looking forward to the coming year. And this we are! We are looking forward to the some of the exciting market opportunities that 2011 promises to bring. Many things converging. Can you feel it? The Poken team is entering the year with high hopes, enthusiasm and strong confidence that 2011 will be an even better year than 2010.
In the end, we would simply like to wish you (and yours) a great Holiday Season, a joyful Christmas and an outstanding New Year!
A very special Holiday High-four!
Located in the heart of historic Transylvania, in one of the most beautiful cities in Romania – Sibiu, a brand new Poken office has taken shape. As the objectives for Poken over the next 6-12 months are lofty (and growing larger every day it seems), we have decided it was time to add some new talent to the team; specifically in the areas of Engineering, Support and Logistics.
New members in the Sibiu office include Cristina (super energized Customer Support Specialist), Cristi (awesome Graphics & Web Designer) and Raul (highly efficient Logistics Engineer). These three have joined forces with the existing dynamo Engineering team from Sibiu comprised of Bogdan (Core/Platform Engineer), Teddy (Partner Tools Engineer) and Claudiu (UI/Front-end Engineer), in a brand new Poken office. This initial team of six people (with more on the way) is supporting Poken’s activity with enthusiasm, fresh ideas and hard work!
Italy is known for many things, a rich history, fantastic food, vibrant nightlife, and an incredible sense of style. Therefore it is only in Italy that you might find a truly authentic melding of high fashion and high technology.
The Poken Reseller in Italy is E-Motion. And they have combined forces with one of the most popular fashion companies in Italy, called Angel and Devil, to create a unique Poken creation called the “Angel and Devil Touch”. The concept is one that frankly didn’t seem possible a few months ago, but it has launched recently to much fanfare.
Picture this: if you are young and hip, and you want to Social Network with your friends at the latest trendy nightclub, how would you do it? Well if you reading this blog, you would certainly guess correctly that you would use your poken to do it, but where to carry the device? Angel and Devil has come up with the concept of incorporating your poken directly into a special pocket … ON your jeans!! Yes that’s right, now you can wear your
poken on the outside! So rather than a High Four, its now a Hip Four!?
