Dwane Lay

“I think that everything after the sales process, you are building the relationship upfront, but it’s the management piece after that doesn’t always get the attention it deserves. We hear a lot of people talk about their relationship with vendors never gets better than right before they sign the contract. The whole, You’ll do anything to get me as a customer, why won’t you do anything to keep me as a customer? We try to make sure we do everything to make our customers happy.” – Dwane Lay

Matt Yunker, “Ethics and Integrity in Sales”

Matt Yunker, Director of Sales with a Focus in Healthcare

Matt Yunker“One of the reasons I came to Dovetail was the integrity of the organization. Ethics is a big deal to me. You just can’t lie to a customer. I see it over and over. And I  think ‘Lies by Omission’ is a big issue in sales, where you just don’ tell them and you let it go and you deal with it later. If I were the customer, how would like to be I like to be sold to? What would I like to know up front? I need to know so that I can make an educated decision.”

Russ Resslhuber, “We can posit that change is constant!!”

Russ Resslhuber, Senior Sales Engineer with Dovetail Software

Russ, what is the best part of your job?:

Russ Resslhuber“It’s never the same — every prospect we meet with – though they may have the same fundamental needs, will have a different perspective on them, on what matters the most , on how they want to tackle solving them. And sometimes, you do encounter new problems you haven’t seen before, new questions that haven’t come up. And that is what keeps it interesting, it is never the same thing twice.  I’m also really pleased that the produce we have, Dovetail Employee Engagement Suite, designed as we like to point out ‘Designed HR, for HR‘ –

Wellness

Each season, I like to create content to support our marketing efforts for the year and upcoming conferences. After 30 live broadcast interviews at HR Tech last year, we discovered that everyone was interested in and talking about “wellness” – I started thinking about this and all that entails for a company and its talent…

Employee Health: Physical / Mental Wellness Job Satisfaction Job Stress Employee Engagement A Strong HR Department Employment Branding Employee Referrals Supportive Management Quality Leadership

And so much more. We live and work in a time where our resources are stretched thin – job seekers and employees are more aware now than ever of the importance of balance. Wellness – whole wellness – can be directly correlated to our work and how we are treated by our employer, organizationally and individually. And this does not

The Perfect Analogy

From time to time, we come up with analogies on the fly that make so much sense, we have to share them. This is a great example. Not long ago, I was trying to explain how SaaS works in relation to developing software and product management.  While we’ve talked about our process in the past, it has been on the “how,” not the “why.” To explain that part, we found a perfect analogy in the Community Garden.

The Plot
