    Rolling Up Some Fixes To Beta… 

    Thank you everyone for fantastic feedback after the first week of Vision Pipeline Assistant being in public beta! Actually only five days I guess. Anyway, we’ve been working hard to clean up a lot of little bugs crawling around the system. The roll up will happen this evening. So, stay off the system, go on a date night, enjoy a movie!

    Many of you gave great feedback on the inner workings and features. Thank you! Vision is built for you. So, it needs to make sense to you. And while we can’t please everyone, the constant goal is to refine the user experience so most everyone enjoys it.

    I can’t really give you a list of bugs fixed because it’s long and most things are behind the scenes (over 250 bugs fixed!).

    The major thing you’ll notice is a “tightening” of the user interface (UI). We pulled in the corners, cleaned up the spacing, and re-shaped the styles in many places. It still has a little work to do, but is making great progress. Remember, if there’s something you don’t like or is busted, I won’t know unless you tell me.

    PLEASE CONTINUE TO GIVE FEEDBACK!!

    BOOM BABY! Vision Pipeline Assistant Launches into the Public Betasphere 

    Today I speak words imagined for just over a year now…

    Vision Pipeline Assistant is available for the general public!

    Okay, maybe the words themselves aren’t that exciting. Heck, this isn’t the moon landing. But the context of the words is thrilling!  And not just for me.  Here’s a video I made to announce it…

    Sure my team and I have been working for over a year to design, develop, and test this new-generation of  CRM called “Simple”.  The Contact Relationship Management (CRM) industry is huge and growing.  But the majority of players focus on big business. The systems are robust, complicated and expensive. People like you and me–the independents–are left in the dust.

    But we need tools like this. The goal is to help you build better relationships so you can make more money, have more free time, and have a lot of fun. Healthy relationships drive everything good in life. And building those relationships take time, focus, and energy. Three things that many of us are in short supply.

    My continuing goal with Vision is to minimize data entry. I know that you won’t use any system that is painful or time-consuming. I can’t promise you that it’s magic…yet. You WILL have to put in a little effort. But Vision also helps you remember things like calling back that prospect you met a few weeks ago, or following up on that networking contact, or just sending your momma a birthday card.

    The system is free for now. It’s in “Beta” which means there are a few bugs.  It has been thoroughly tested though to make sure that your data is safe. So, even though something funny might happen on the screen, you won’t lose anything important.

    This is process and I’m glad you are on the journey with me. Tools like this ONLY GET BETTER through feedback and collaboration. You have made a commitment to yourself to be better at followup and sales. You’ve made the commitment to be more organized. You know you need tools to help. Rather than keep looking for “the ultimate tool” help me make this into it.

    You can comment here on the blog, on the soon to be here Idea Board, tweet me, become a Facebook fan, or shoot me an email with comments, feedback, and recommendations.

    Almost done! 

    So, it’s pushing 2 AM and I’m pounding energy drinks and am in desperate need of a bath.  But Caroline will finally get a reprieve. I’m on the last page. Should take another hour or so to polish it up. That means that Friday will be a date night with Carolina instead of another date with my computer!

    I haven’t written in the blog because I’ve been writing code!  Got the bulk of the code from the dev team but was inspired to add a few things and clean up the interface based up private beta feedback.

    It’s even better than previously imagined! Plus, the developers are already working on some hot new features.

    Meanwhile you’ll get to check out the beta version and start organizing your life!  Whew…this is the kind of rambling that happens on little sleep. I better wrap this up and try to get a few minutes. Talk to you tomorrow!

    Private Beta Opening Next Week! 

    I’ve set up a small number of personal appointments to do one on one demos.  This is very exciting because so far no one outside the development team has even seen the application!  The first lucky few get insider access to try out Vision and give initial feedback.

    The system is still a little buggy but mostly it’s just interface problems. The dev team is doing a great job of finalizing some fixes. Hopefully we can open public beta within the next couple weeks!

    Final code release! 

    Just got the final code drop from the development team. All features are built in now.  Some still need a little work but they are there!

    We’ll be doing some testing and bug fixing for the next couple weeks. I’m hoping that we can open up Beta access middle of June. This is very exciting news for sales professionals who are frustrated with contact management.

    If you want to be part of our Beta team (that means FREE access to the CRM) just go here: http://www.visionpipeline.com

    Once we open Beta, you’ll get instructions on creating your account. Looking forward to your feedback!
