Due to the fact that a lot of ReadyTalk products are client facing, our engineers have the opportunity to really make an impact in our product and the industry that we are in. Our goal is to capture innovation and take a sneak peak into what the future of ReadyTalk could look like.  In order to ensure engineers are involved in Research & Development we have implemented an 80/20 model.  How it works is that engineers will spend 80% of their time on the ReadyTalk product and getting new releases out to our clients.  The other 20% of their time they have the autonomy to build things that could potentially make ReadyTalk better.  It is an opportunity for unguided innovation and they can either work on something independently or team up with other engineers that they perhaps have not worked with in the past.

We celebrated Labs Day which was Friday 10/28/11.  The engineers were busy working on their personal projects and had the opportunity to present their ideas to the team.

The day started at 10:00AM with Demos from a few of our engineering team members including Dave Clements,Troy Hilland Ryan Kish.  We were then lucky enough to have Wahoo’s Taco Bar catered in for lunch. We got spoiled with chips, salsa and of course fabulous Wahoo’s Tacos.  After lunch we continued Demo Days with presentations fromMatt Klich,Rich Scottand Mike Jenson.  Homemade beer was served after the Demos wrapped up and a great time was had by all!
