One of the most rewarding aspects of being a CEO is when you can see the hard work put in by your amazing team really paying off.
For the last several weeks and months, everyone here at FirstRain has been putting in long hours in order to launch the next phase of our solution to market, and so I am thrilled to announce the release of the third generation of the FirstRain and our new FirstRain mobile apps for iPhone and Android (now available in the iTunes App Store and the Android Marketplace) today.
This is the third (and huge) step forward in FirstRain's development, and provides our customers a truly unique and effective, role-based way of monitoring the critical developments impacting their business, industry, customers or competitors. Plus we've also now optimized FirstRain for use on tablet devices (loving it on my iPad), all of which means your critical intelligence can now be delivered to any place or time you most need to see it: whether it's over your morning coffee, at your desk, on your company portal or out on the road.
The product also has also has a significant look and feel make-over, with a fresh-new look and a streamlined design making it simple to get in, find what you need, and get on with your work.
All in all, we think it's a big step forward in an already great product, and seeing this really sharp new iteration of FirstRain come to life has been extremely gratifying for me and everyone involved. And for all of you readers who are FirstRain customers, try out the new role-based monitor setup, download the new mobile apps, and please, let us know what you think!
