The Amazing Aptera Open House 2011

Aptera's 4th Annual Client & Community Appreciate Night was held September 29, 2011 at their downtown headquarters in Fort Wayne, IN.

The Corner View: Microsoft Lync

Aptera Inc's president and CEO TK Herman tells the story of how Microsoft Lync made it possible for his company to cut its telecommunications costs in half while more than tripling its count of outgoing phone lines. Herman envisions a not-too-distant future in which Lync has made desktop phones obsolete. Combining 5 products into a single software package, Lync streamlines and simplifies your business's communications in a way that'll make you wonder how you ever managed without it.

Aptera Open House 2012

Some sensational and revealing scenes from Aptera's 2012 Open House, the annual event that brings together employees, clients, friends, family, and anyone else who might wander in from the street with the offer of free food, drinks, camaraderie, and talk of commerce. This year's theme was the great American pastime, so every employee donned a jersey, numbered according to order of hiring, generously provided by the company. The Aptera team knocked this one out of the park!

The Corner View: SharePoint Roadmapping

Microsoft's SharePoint intranet platform can revolutionize your business - but without proper planning, it may not be the revolution you were hoping for. Aptera's president and CEO T.K. Herman explains how Roadmapping can make or break your SharePoint implementation.

The Corner View: Discovery

In this edition, TK talks with Creative Director C. Ray Harvey about the Discovery Phase that begins every Aptera project. Discovery brings together decision-makers, as well as the people whose day-to-day work will be affected by the project, to determine what challenges need to be taken on, what goals everyone has is mind, and what precisely success will look like. Though many business leaders are keen to get their projects started right away, taking the time to go through the discovery process can mean the difference between a finished project that is no more than a jumble of parts and one that works to deliver measurable results.

The Corner View: Mobile Apps

In this edition, TK talks mobile apps with Chris Stephan. As someone who has his hands in this wildly popular and rapidly evolving tech area every day, Chris is at the forefront of the growing business trend toward more customized, more innovative, and more entertaining apps. Apps are no longer just a fancy diversion for teenagers to burn time between classes; mobile apps are helping companies reach their clients in more interactive and satisfying ways, and they're streamlining internal business processes as well. Of course, the ways that businesses are using mobile apps today is surely just the beginning.

The Corner View: Is Office 365 Right For You?

In this edition of The Corner View, TK talks with Aptera's own Enterprise Architect Mark Gordon about how Microsoft's Office 365 is revolutionizing businesses by giving smaller companies access to tools that only the biggest used to have, and by giving bigger companies the ability to behave with the coordination and agility that only the smallest used to be able to manage. Mark brings 14 years of experience at Microsoft to the table, and he knows firsthand how dramatically this collaboration tool can transform businesses.

The Corner View: What is a Microsoft Managed Partner?

In this edition of The Corner View, TK talks to Terease Baker-Bell, Microsoft's Partner Account Manager for Tennessee and Kentucky, about what it means to be a Managed Partner, what criteria Microsoft uses to choose these partners, and what benefits businesses can count on from working with a Managed Partner like Aptera.

Aptera's Quarterly Meeting - Go-Kart Style

For our quarterly meeting, we ventured to Fast Track in Fort Wayne to recap on the previous year, get some indoor go-kart racing in, and enjoy some "friendly" competition. We had a blast and caught the excitement on our GoPro cameras.
