Tungle Has an Innovative Way to Combine Vision with Customer Feedback



Have you used Tungle to schedule a meeting yet?  If not -- boy are you missing something.  Tungle is one of those amazingly, obviously, desperately needed applications that you wished that you had invented.

Tungle is a meeting scheduler.  If you've ever tried to coordinate a meeting between yourself and at least one other person, Tungle will make it a breeze and reduce the number of back and forth emails that it takes to identify a mutually agreed upon date and time.

Tungle REALLY Listened to it's Users

Tungle had a great idea - but they had an even better vision, one that combined their vision with the combined vision of their customer.  It's called the Calendar of the Future.

Notice that they are using a crowd sourcing feedback tool to grab ideas as they crop up for their audience while they are reading.

It's not about using the tool - it's about fueling the tool.  It's Tungle's powerful vision for what's possible in the world of "getting people together" that makes giving and sharing information within the community so exciting.

What We Can Learn

It isn't about the method with which you collect the information -- that's just the vehicle.  It's about WHY you want to know and what you're going to create.  If your vision for the future is exciting enough and makes life easier for your market - they will participate with enthusiasm.  Hopefully, you'll be listening.

Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Cyber Security

Earlier this week, we experienced a power outage with our data center at Internap. During this short period of time, our customers were unable to access the site. Luckily, it didn't last long and we are back up and running now thanks to our dedicated support team that responded quickly and worked diligently.

Cyber security is, and always has been, a very important issue for us as we continue to grow and meet the demands of a technology-driven society. Nothing is more paramount than the safety of your valuable data. And apparently we weren't the only ones affected, as LinkedIn was experiencing difficulties on the same day and Internap had 3 massive outages earlier this year. Check out these infographics with stats on the importance of cyber security and the impact it can have on small-medium sized businesses.
