iOFFICE Awards 5 Amazing Workplace Leaders: Learn Who and Why

by Kaitlan Whitteberry on May 5, 2017

The iOFFICE User Conference is all about celebrating our customers, and giving recognition to those that inspire us each day to make our IWMS just as awesome as they are! This year, we couldn’t help but notice a few stand-out individuals who have really pushed us to be our very best, and we’re so thankful for them. We took a few moments during the event to recognize these customers last week. We can’t thank them enough for truly ELEVATING our entire team, and we can only imagine the great things that we will see in the near future from these iOFFICE power-users!

“Technology is a dialog with human potential”

Pokemon has experienced quite the year, but that hasn’t slowed down any of their hardworking team!
