a great blog for any SaaS entrepreneur is http://saastr.com/ written by Jason M. Lemkin, Managing Director at Storm Ventures. Heavy focus on sales and growth. Highly recommended.
Darrell and his partners have created a terrific company - Q4 - which is filling a niche that needed to be properly filled for a long time. They provide an Investor Relations oriented CMS system that is modern, flexible and evolving.
Our company - zu - has worked in tandem with Q4 to create well-balanced, high-performance Investor and Corporate websites, that combine our best thinking on communications strategy and design with Q4’s technological innovation. In the end, the client is master of their domain via Q4’s powerful CMS.
While zu builds corporate sites and applications from scratch, we've also built Investor sites on all manner of CMS's including other big name IR website solution-providers offerings. These other vendors, unfortunately, tend to cause many good ideas to be left on the cutting room floor because their systems did not offer the necessary flexibility, and can’t support the client’s need to be self-sufficient in maintenance. Q4 provides the flexibility you need if you want to out-perform the filing cabinet-style offerings most of your Investor Relations peers seem to be satisfied with.
Bravo, Darrell for persevering with your vision of what an IR site is supposed to do.
Over the last 3 years I'm proud to say I've had the opportunity to get to know Darrell on not just a professional but personal level and it has led to a close strategic relationship between our companies. Darrell has a unique ability to not just innovate and develop next generation applications on a competitive technology level but turn that innovation into real business models. If you have the opportunity to work with Darrell i highly recommend exploring where the relationship may lead. Matt Bird, CEO MUNCmedia.
Few people understand the intersection between investor relations and technology/social media more than Darrell. I've had an opportunity to serve on panels with him and always walk away thinking, "I wish more people thought about technology and its use in IR like Darrell does." The practice would probably be advanced much further than it is today.
Darrell has a strong sense of purpose, and the vision to provide customers what they need. His focus on process and results makes him a true professional. His leadership in online investor relations solutions at Q4 WEb Systems is evident in every interaction with Darrell.
I highly recommend Darrell.
