Last year proved to be our busiest yet. On top of delivering exciting new features and updates to our already powerful tools, we strived to provide you with easier access to valuable solutions through acquisitions and mergers with longtime partners and friends in the industry. Let’s turn back time and take a look at some of our biggest moments in 2018.
Last year more than 850 professionals representing eight countries attended the Simpleview Summit to receive digital marketing training, learn best practices, and pick the brains of keynote speakers like Erik Whal and Melanie Spring. Stated simply by a previous sponsor, the Simpleview Summit encompasses two things: “Quality attendees. Quality content.”
Acquired strategic partner Barberstock, a digital asset management system, retaining the entire Barberstock staff and continuing to serve customers as Barberstock, a division of Simpleview. The same Barberstock team will continue to provide exemplary customer service to existing and forthcoming Barberstock clients.
The New Simpleview Office
Our Tucson offices moved into a new building, and we celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
“Simpleview’s mission is to provide an environment where caring for others, quality, productivity and accountability drive profit, innovation, and service excellence,” said Simpleview CEO Ryan George. “That’s a mouthful, but our physical environment should exemplify that statement, so having more of our staff under one roof will foster collaboration and increase efficiencies as a result. We have fewer offices, more open workspaces, motorized sit/stand workstations throughout, almost double the meetings space, and pop-ins for when people need an office for calls or one-on-one meetings.”
Growth proved to be the common theme of the year and is recurring in 2019 with our recent acquisition of 2Synergize. In total, our staff has grown by a whopping 100+ employees since the start of last year. With offices in Tucson, Arizona; Liverpool, England; and Denver, Colorado; just to name a few, we now serve more than 900 destination marketing organizations in 19 different time zones.
As the dust begins to settle from the whirlwind that was 2018, we are energized to continue serving as your leading provider of integrated destination marketing solutions in the year ahead.
