Social CRM maker Batchbook recently added five new employees to its ranks, a 20 percent jump during the past six months, increasing the depth of its team across various specialties. The new superstars regularly spring into action working virtually across the United States as well as inhabitants of the BatchHaus (http://batchhaus.com) proudly rooted in Providence, RI.
“Our growth is a proof point that the tech industry is as strong as ever in the Ocean State,” said Pamela O’Hara, CEO and founder of Batchbook. “At its heart, Batchbook is about the team. Our employees are such an important part of the relationships we are building with our customers, partners (http://batchbook.com/integrations) and Champions (http://batchbook.com/tour/champions.html). With these hires, we are even better equipped to build great products and provide exceptional support to our customers.”
Each new worker bee personally drives the success of the latest version of Batchbook, launched in August 2012. Offering a major update of the original blend, the new version of the cloud-based software is designed to help small businesses build stronger relationships with customers in a more efficient way. With new features such as custom field sets and champions tagging, and the classic ability to layer in social data such as contact information, news feeds and even avatars, businesses use Batchbook to identify their best clients and provide an optimal experience for them.
