An IT illiterate gal joins a software company…

The other half of marketing... Google

I'm new to the IT industry, my background is consumer marketing. I think it's fair to say that when the IT boys in the office talk to me, I often look at them with a glazed expression that says 'I have no idea what you're talking about, just please make my computer work'. But I'm absorbing myself in the wealth of technology out there, and actually, I'm even starting to feel slightly cool for a mum of three floating towards the end of her thirties.  Not only do I know what Tumblr, Vine and Pulse are, I've even started to use them.  My website skills still leave a lot to be desired, but if you want to get into a conversation about GoogleDrive, Box, OneDrum or Acrobat, I could wax lyrical about why our product, PleaseReview, is so much better.  Get me.

I'll never fully understand the technical side of PleaseReview, but that doesn't matter, that's what IT departments and developers are for.  I probably have the same IT skills as most end users (reasonable Word, Excel), and that's the beauty of PleaseReview, that it's simple to use, you don't need hours of training that goes in one ear and out the other.

Hopefully it won't surprise you to know that we use PleaseReview all the time in the office.  It's a great way to get feedback on a document (Whitepapers, licensing manuals) from a number of colleagues without having to collate multiple changes, or for example, being on a deadline and having to get hold of Dave when he's in the US to resolve conflicting comments.

I've had no official training on how to use PleaseReview, five minutes maybe from a colleague when I first looked at the system.  And guess what, even I can use it. If only it was that simple to print when you press the PRINT button...
