OnePager Goal: We Want You as a Lifetime-Customer

In case you didn’t get the feeling at any point in your previous business exchanges with us, I’d like to tell you now: We’d like your business for as long as you live and work.

We realize this isn’t something a product alone can achieve; it’s something that we humans under the hood must commit to daily in order to earn it.

It’s something we talk about regularly during our meetings, and every now and then we get a little pat on the back from a customer who is momentarily inspired to share their appreciation for the attention we’ve given them.

No application is perfect, but our development team works hard every day (weekends too!) to make OnePager better.

Given this customer-centric focus, your feedback is enormously important to us. Negative, or positive, or even if you just have a wish list for what you want the application to do, please find a minute to send us your thoughts.

Your input drives what we do and how we do it.

Thank you!

Election Results

That means we can expect plenty of fireworks, cable news prognostication, and partisan bile in the next three months. Most of that, it’s safe to say, is best ignored. Fortunately, an election year also brings plenty for the history- and data-minded among us.

With Nov. 8 in mind, we took a look at how state-by-state voting results have changed over the last 13 presidential elections. You can find our visualization – made in OnePager for Excel – here, or expand it by clicking the thumbnail on this page. Bright blue means an overwhelming Democratic victory, and red means the same for the Republicans. Shades of purple represent a closer vote; true purple would be a 50-50 tie.

What do we learn when we examine historical voting trends this way? Quite a few things. Continue reading

Customer Experience Alignment – www.onepager.com

For several years, we’ve been conscious that our company name, our website, and our product names may not be streamlined enough in order to best serve our prospective and existing customers. In an effort to strengthen our customer experience overall, we have been working to align our product names, company name, and our URL with OnePager.

As a part of that effort, we would like to introduce www.onepager.com to the world.

Visualizing a ‘Brexit’ Project Plan

It’s enough to make any professional project manager’s skin crawl. The United Kingdom’s pending exit from the European Union – the biggest shakeup in Western statecraft since the fall of the Soviet Union – appears to be proceeding essentially without a plan.

David Cameron, Britain’s Prime Minister, is stepping down before October. He’s said he won’t trigger Article 50 – the EU’s method for a member state resigning – in the near future; that’s up to his successor. And even when (or if) Article 50 is invoked, no one quite knows exactly how the “Brexit” itself will work – the rule has never been used.
