by

tl;dr – Early Monday morning our UI project that we’ve been working on for the last few months, material-ui, was the top product on ProductHunt, made the front page of HackerNews and became a trending project on GitHub.

What Happens When the Lights Go Out?

by

A few weeks ago nearly 70,000 customers were without power in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas after storms swept through the area. While this wasn’t the first time, and it certainly won’t be the last time in that area, what was different was that Louisiana Public Service Commissioner Foster Campbell realized an issue.

Your Company Needs You to Get Out of the Office!

by

About five years ago, I received feedback from my team that they wanted me to take a lesser role in the day-to-day operations of Call-Em-All and focus more on leadership and vision.

Technology and the Future of Higher Ed

by

The buzz about the future of Higher Ed has been circling for quite some time. As a (fairly) recent graduate, I’ve heard several discussions and forecasts of what college experiences will be like just a few short years from now which are both energizing and nerve-wracking. I recently stumbled across a Fast Co. Exist article,… Read more »

What Businesses Can Learn From Best Buy’s Settlement

by

Early last week, the news came that Best Buy chose to settle their TCPA class action for $4.55 million. When the case was initially filed, Best Buy attempted to defend their use of an automated calling system as purely informational, and thus exempt from TCPA.

Our Unorthodox Take on Terms of Use and Privacy Policy

by

We at Call-Em-All work hard to try to keep things simple.  Sounds easy enough – who doesn’t like simple, right? But how do you do simple when it comes to legal documents like our Terms of Use?

Web App…It Isn't A Dirty Word

by

Now we’ve gone and done it. We’ve released our mobile app and it isn’t in any of the “App Stores”. We hope you’ll shrug it off and realize we wouldn’t have made this decision if we thought it was anything other than the best option for our customers. But maybe a piece of you is… Read more »
