Today, I thought I’d take a second to make a statement about the future of PageLines as both a product and company.
It’s been an amazing trip we’ve had these last four years. We’ve had a chance to help lots of people get amazing results and find success in their work. And that’s a huge win for us; and I’m assuming you as well. We’ve tried a lot and learned a lot.
Now that PageLines’ flagship product, DMS, has been out a bit; we’ve taken a look at exactly where we are as a company and what the best moves are going forward.
As part of this process, we’ve come to a conclusion: success really comes down to focus. And in this business, that means keeping things simple yet useful.
So what does this mean to you?
Products for Perfectionists
PageLines is working on some new products for people building websites. Products that will take your work to another level. We’ve recognized the fact that the power of the DMS platform comes down to the strength of its applications.
This means we’re building some *killer* apps, that should really solidify what DMS can do and why its a powerful concept in web design.
We’ll also be taking a more “quality over quantity” approach to extensions allowed on the PageLines Store. Working to reward developers who have both awesome customer service and useful, well-designed products. We feel that this approach is the best way to reenforce the quality behind the PageLines brand.
More to come on all this soon…
A Harder, Better, Faster Company in Austin
Running PageLines as a “virtual” company has been great, but a little difficult at times. We drank the Koolaid about this for a while, but in reality we simply would be executing better for you in a traditional environment.
So…. it’s time to announce the virtual days are coming to an end. Right now we’re setting up an office in Austin, Texas. This is a central location in an awesome city. Building a super talented PageLines team in one location will allow us to really focus on creating things that give you guys an advantage in your work. And that’s what we’re ALL about!
We realize you won’t notice these operational changes behind the scenes; however, you *should* notice the results.
If you’re nearby the Austin area, let us know! We should be set up with in a month or so. :)
