Who needs real walls?
On what would otherwise be an unremarkable Monday morning, the normal stream of our team, dogs, and interview candidates filtered into the office. So did 5 construction workers from rural Virginia, wish sheds made by an Amish company.
If you were paying any attention last week (and I’m sure you were) you found out about Contactually’s Festivus celebration and giveaway. We’re celebrating this fantastic holiday for everyone by giving you the opportunity to win Contactually free for all of 2015. read more…

In lieu of the upcoming holiday, I posted a shared document and asked Contactually employees to tell me what they’re thankful for. I told them it would be posted on the blog (so they should avoid saying anything that would make their mothers cry) and nothing else. I didn’t ask for Contactually-specific thankfuls but it seems that theme emerged (you’ll all get your $50 next week).
It’s obvious that we have team members that are excited to be here and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
This Thanksgiving we want our users (and potential users!) and partners to know how much we appreciate you. Thank you for your support, your continually constructive feedback, and for being our evangelists. We have the best users around and everybody is probably super jealous.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Happy Thanksgiving, from our team to yours!
Update, 12/8/14 : We’ve released a new update that fixes a number of crashes, removes sync notifications (they were annoying), and gives more detailed information when something goes wrong (so we can fix it!). Version 2.0.2. is available on the Google Play store today, so update now!
Contactually for Android is better, faster, and more reliable than ever before
It’s 2014 — we know that for a communication and connection tool to be truly life-changing, it has to be accessible from anywhere. That’s why in addition to our full blown web application, Contactually is also available as a plugin for both Gmail and Outlook, as well as a mobile app for iOS and Android.
While we know Contactually users need quality plugins and mobile apps — and we’re glad to have them — we’ve also never been satisfied with how well they’ve worked, in everything from battery usage to how effectively they recreate the functionality of the desktop web application you know and love.
That’s why both of our mobile apps, along with our email client plugins, have been undergoing major overhauls for months. And our first big announcement has to do with some huge improvements to the 2.0 version of the Android app, which is available today. So let’s get right into it! read more…
The customer is always right, except when they’re wrong
When retailers started incorporating the oft-repeated motto “The customer is always right” in the early 1900’s, they had the best of intentions. Hoping to improve customer service, increase customer satisfaction, and encourage customer loyalty, the motto gave life to a new era in customer service. And while many companies still live by this motto today, a new breed of customer-facing companies and organizations are starting to sing a different tune.
When growing your brand and your business, it’s important to consider the kind of company you want to become. Balancing and responding to customer complaints isn’t an easy job, but someones got to do it, and that someone probably shouldn’t assume the customer is always right. What was good for business in the 1900’s isn’t necessarily good for business now and taking a “sometimes the customer is wrong” approach won’t damn your business like some business folk might have you believe. read more…
Contactually — now with helpful notifications!
Nobody likes not knowing what’s going on, especially since modern web and mobile applications have trained us to expect little red numbers or drop-down messages every time someone so much as posts a picture.
So while notifications can be overdone, they’re also an important part of staying connected, which is what Contactually is all about. That’s why we’ve (a) added notifications to Contactually, and (b) tried to do so in a way that works the way you’d expect, with no funny business. read more…
