Volano has kept a busy schedule recently and slowing down is not an option. We wanted to share some of the things that we do when we’re not writing gang-buster code for clients and designing dynamic mobile applications.
This week Volano Solutions attended the Nebraska Broadband Conference sponsored by the AIM Institute in Kearney Nebraska. The two day conference offered ample networking and perspective on the vitality of broadband internet access, especially in rural parts of the state. The conference kicked off with key note speaker Tim Kiene, founder of venture cap fund Nebraska Global and also featured author and speaker Jack Uldrich, a “futurist” who discussed the seismic changes coming in business due to the advent of nano-technology. Kiene gave straightforward advice to aspiring software entrepreneurs on the rigors and rewards of starting a business. Volano’s own Rod Smith and Kelly Grace spoke in break-out sessions where we discussed how software can bring efficiency, transparency, accuracy, and accountability to businesses.
On Wednesday October 23rd Volano is hosting an Open House from 5-7 PM at our headquarters. For those of you who have not visited before, we’re located at 1905 Harney St. on the 8th floor of the Exchange Building. Free tickets are available via Eventbrite. The open house offer opportunities to make new contacts, learn something new about software and forget all of that information during cocktails. All are welcome to attend.
Volano wrapped up an exciting 90 days working with Dundee VC and their start-up accelerator program Straightshot as well October 3.rd The relationships built during this time were valuable and it was genuinely exciting to be involved with extremely bright people on both sides of the entrepreneurial spectrum. The culmination of this rigorous support program took place at the Aksarben Cinema where each of the seven companies ran through tier respective pitches in an effort to create visibility and hopefully spark interest from potential investors.
After the Holidays Volano will be launching its next mobile application, Action Card at the International Franchise Convention in New Orleans. Since going into beta-test mode, we have signed up 15 franchisors and should have an additional 10 by the end of the month. We also continue to sign new users onto Steelwool and have enjoyed the opportunity to demo Steelwool to a diverse set of industries here in the Midwest. We’re excited to take our show on the road and head to The Big Easy to meet many of our Action Card beta testers and sign up new clients as we launch it for 2014.

Software development is a team-based endeavor because of the complexity involved in launching a new system. Gone are the days when one developer can be point on the whole back-office software stack.

One definition of rot is the process of deterioration. Something that decays over time. By this standard – software rots like food in the Nebraska heat. It’s true. If your software isn’t regularly updated, it deteriorates and breaks down. Consider this – software is written to work at a moment in time…but time marches on. […]

Many of us remember the grade school game Telephone. It was funny to see how a simple message would get garbled as it was passed along from person to person. But it’s not as funny when that message is a critical business requirement that will be turned into software that will power your business. Yet, […]
