Telling the Dispersive Story
Telling the Dispersive Story
There’s an adage that says, “It’s not bragging if it’s true.”
As I look across the spectrum of national and industry headlines over the last couple months, I’m extremely proud of how well Dispersive’s people, partners, and customers, have done in getting the word out on our performance. And I’m quite certain that, as we continue to tell the Dispersive story, no one will accuse us of bragging – because it’s true!
In the last two months, the industry has certainly been put on notice that Dispersive is here and here to stay. Most recently, we were pleased to see the significant number of media outlets that published the exciting news of the release of DispersiveFabric 4.3, a new client with added features for Windows computers, Apple devices, and Android smartphones that enhances user experience and productivity. The new release is faster, more intuitive, and simpler for end-users and network administrators to deploy and will be available in May.
Social media has also been an exceptional tool in getting out the Dispersive story. Thanks to the recent additions to our YouTube page, all audiences have the opportunity to view our latest videos and subscribe to the channel to receive updates on all new and future videos. We’re especially pleased with our latest addition that highlights the Dispersive difference.
In addition to our YouTube channel, we’re seeing great traction on our LinkedIn and Twitter feeds. I would invite everyone to take an active role in engaging us, our customers, and our partners on these important sites.
While press releases and social media have been great catalysts in getting the word out on Dispersive, it’s our people who have truly been the heroes of our story. Many of our subject matter experts have been featured in a broad range of stories and laid the foundation for positioning Dispersive as a true thought leader!
