Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: We see an increasing usage of iPhones and iPads for more business. Previously, with these devices, you could only access a little bit of information, but what we’re noticing now with the bigger devices is that people want to be able to do even more heavy duty work on their devices. That’s one of the things that we’re committed to enabling.
There was a bit of a dip in this trend when people were working from home and the desktop became more important again, but we were well positioned for that. Now that travel is resuming and life is coming back to normal, we see more people wanting to take some of those capabilities back into the mobile space.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: In a former life, we were a consulting company and struggled with the same things most businesses do – keeping track of relationships and commitments. So we began building a tool that could help us get organized and thrive. After a trip to MacWorld and a run-in with an Apple employee, we were encouraged to sell our tool and that’s how Daylite was born.
