“You’re a software company”, they said.
“You shouldn’t be posting about Valentine’s Day”, they said.
“We beg to differ”, we said.
After all, if you have amazing digital work tools that allow you to…
- Organise your work, using modern applications – with structure and context
- Execute all of your team or departmental reporting at the click of a button
- Collaborate with your colleagues, with zero faff
- Handle business processes, like a boss
…then surely that gives you a bunch more time to write a thoughtful card, to track down some flowers or to spend with a loved one.
Get the right systems in place and swap work time for romance time. It’s more fun.
Bespoke web applications, Google Workspace, Podio, workflow automation, dashboards. It all helps.
Have a good one ❤️
As 2021 rolled around, it’s fair to say that many of us are hoping that 2020 – and all its MANY challenges – will soon be consigned to (a significant part of) history. There is still a way to go, for sure, but we are certainly in a better place now than we were 12 months ago. For us, the year kicked off on a positive note when we welcomed Peter to join the Oval team of developers. It isn’t easy joining a new organisation when it’s not even possible to sit in the same room as your cohorts, but Peter has done an awesome job at getting stuck in, and he’s already proving to be a valuable addition.
Peter’s portfolio includes a wide range of projects – both small and large – working across an enviable number of technologies. We’re putting him through something of a baptism of fire, getting involved in two of our biggest pieces of development. With a passion for coding and learning about new technologies, Peter has already gleaned a lot about good coding practice from his new team mates, and is eager for that to continue.
In addition, Peter is an avid musician, playing the guitar and recording acoustic covers in his downtime. Perhaps we are yet one step closer to forming the Oval band that so often gets mentioned…!!
