Community News: A Burgeoning Community

John Pinson
Sep. 1, 2011 by John Pinson

In our last newsletter, CEO George Schlossnagle explained that the company has begun to devote more attention to outreach and fostering a sense of community among our clients and partners. With more than 100 employees spread across three US and four international offices and clients on four continents from multiple vertical markets, keeping everyone on the same page is a bit more challenging. But the rewards of tapping into this diverse and growing knowledge base are greater than ever before too.

The success of the Interact user conference really helped bring this issue into focus. Our aim is to keep the spirit of Interact alive and make it the Message Systems community where employees, clients and partners can exchange ideas and use cases and discuss technical and business issues of common interest. There are plenty of ways for us to stay in touch – especially through social media. The Messenger newsletter is part of that effort, but we’re all about dialog and interaction at Message Systems, so we’re encouraging you to connect with us online and through social media. There are multiple ways to do so. Read on!


Our marketing department regularly puts out company news through our official Twitter feed, and quite a few of our executives and associates use Twitter to share insights into projects they’re working on. If you’re on Twitter, please start to follow us – you can choose one or more from the following list of active “Tweeters”:

Our good friend Franck Martin, Postmaster at LinkedIn, set up a Message Systems User Group on LinkedIn earlier this year, and we’ve already attracted more than 80 members. LinkedIn is a terrific place to share experiences in using Message Systems products. Our group hosts discussion forums where you can learn tips and techniques from other users. We hope to leverage the forum in the future to provide greater access to our knowledge experts and resources, so be sure to sign up and check in regularly to see what’s going on.

Google Group

For the technically inclined among us, we’ve set up a Google Group. If you’re a developer, engineer, sysadmin or postmaster, this is a great place to really dig into the issues you’ll face managing, maintaining and optimizing the Momentum platform and our other solutions. The group is open to all customers, and you can sign up here.


Have you read our blog? We launched a company blog earlier in 2011, and we’ve gotten into a pretty steady rhythm, publishing three to four posts per month. Regular contributors include executive team members, product managers, solution engineers, marketing team members and more. Some recent posts include:
