Wednesday, October 10, 2012 at 11:45 AM (PDT)
Speaker: Jacob Savage
As our society has become more attached to mobile marketing and instantaneous information, organizations have realized the value of creating tools to provide people with information they need whenever they need it, especially when they are outside of their homes and needing pertinent information to help them with their daily routine.
Now is a good time for companies to assess if they need to have apps for tablets and smart phones as well as what the content needs to be to help their customers and clients.
Jacob Savage, founder and president of Speak Creative, will share his thoughts on what you and your organization need to be doing now in regards to creating apps to better your users’ experience of your company.
Jacob will discuss how he and his team at Speak have created apps for various organizations and events around town including Memphis In May, the Memphis Zoo, Shelby Farms and the FedEx / ST. Jude Classic.
Jacob started Speak back in 1999 and has built a business that serves hundreds of clients in about 40 states. Jacob plays a role in all parts of the business. He constantly pushes the design team to excellence, works with Speak’s developers to keep SiteWrench on the forefront of web technology and the account team to help them improve customers' experiences.
