Thanks for an Amazing Year at SmartVault!
Happy Holidays from SmartVault!
With another great year at SmartVault winding down – and an even better 2015 on the horizon – I wanted to take a moment to thank you, our customer, the most valuable asset we have. With your ongoing support, feedback, and advocacy, we were able to accelerate many enhancements to our service that ultimately drove the biggest growth the company has seen since its inception. So a sincere thank you for your trust and support – you helped make this possible.
Looking Back on 2014… and Forward to a New Year
2014 was a year of exponential growth at SmartVault – we tripled the size of our company, quadrupled our user base, and transformed SmartVault to better meet the needs of accounting professionals, with the announcement of our partnership with Intuit, and subsequent integrations with two market-leading tax applications, Lacerte and ProSeries.
While growing pains come with the territory, we sincerely appreciate the support and loyalty that you’ve shown us throughout the year. We’ve learned from our missteps and made some quick adjustments, and as we look ahead to 2015, we’re excited to deliver an even better overall service for you and your business. At the end of the day, if you are running your business more efficiently, doing more in less time, then we’ve done our jobs.
Looking ahead to 2015, we will continue to be laser focused on adding features and functionality that have a direct and positive impact on your workflow, and we will strive to deliver excellent service and support throughout all of your engagements with SmartVault. We will continue to drive our roadmap based on direct feedback from you, so keep it coming!
You can expect significant enhancements for SmartVault 2015. We introduced a lot of new features for our Intuit Lacerte and ProSeries Tax customers this year, and are looking forward to making those available across our entire customer base in 2015. This includes our new Connected Desktop, to help you better manage your day to day document workflow, and a major update to our portal, making it more intuitive and easier to use.
Our Pledge to Give Back to the Houston Food Bank
Last year, we told you about our commitment to the 1-1-1 Pledge, to donate 1% of our company’s equity, 1% of our annual revenue, and 1% of our employees’ time, to philanthropy. I’m happy to report that we have been supporting the Houston Food Bank as this year’s focus philanthropy, which has been an incredibly enriching experience, both for our employees, and for me personally.
Thanks again for all of your support in 2014, and we look forward to delivering on our promise of giving back to you, and to our community, in 2015.
Wishing each of you a happy & peaceful holiday season,
CEO and Founder
