Behind Seesmic CRM: It Takes a Team

 

In the midst of Dreamforce 2011, 45,000 attendees and hundreds of booths, Seesmic CRM for Android Beta went live in the Android Market. Not just any beta, Loic demo’d Seesmic CRM for Android live on stage at the Keynote, and we spent four days demo’ing the app at the Seesmic booth. The public unveiling, however, does not represent all of the work that went on behind the scenes. We want to thank everyone who is a part of Team Seesmic – you made the launch possible.

The team, the team, the team Stephane Delbecque, Director of Mobile Products at Seesmic, lead Seesmic’s Development and QA teams to deliver both the Android beta and the upcoming iPhone and iPad Seesmic CRM applications.

The Seesmic team is made up of some of the smartest, most passionate and thoughtful people in the industry. It is impossible to be a part of this team without realizing this, so please forgive the outpour of Seesmic love here, because this team earned it.

salesforce.com We remain grateful to Salesforce, both a great partner and investor in Seesmic. Together Seesmic and Salesforce are a force to be reckoned with – pun intended. We look forward to continuing to work together to define the future of mobile CRM.

Users Users power our roadmap. The Android beta is an open invitation to join the roadmap, and Salesforce powerusers are driving. As an agile development shop, we rely on this feedback for each release, and there are many releases to come. Our users guide both Seesmic CRM and Seesmic Social’s roadmaps. Bonus points for users like Thomas Gagne, of Xede Consulting, who downloaded the app and stopped by the booth ASAP to share his feedback. Thank you, Thomas, for letting us capture this awesomeness on camera:



Motorola  Jae Shin, Director of Enterprise Solutions at Motorola, took great care of our team throughout Dreamforce. Motorola loaned us a slew of Droid 3′s to demo Seesmic CRM and offered up a Motorola Xoom to raffle at the booth. What’s more, Joseph Avila, Enterprise Training Manager at Motorola, joined us at the Seesmic booth for the entire event. Congrats to Rajeev Iyer, Commerical Services Manager at Comcast, who is the proud new owner of a Motorla Xoom  (Psst…we threw in a Seesmic CRM tshirt, too).

The Seesmic team is made up of many players, and we thank all of you for your part in launching Seesmic CRM for Android beta. We have only just begun, and we look forward to continuing to work together in the future.
