This blog came to life on August 11, 2009 and now, ten years on, it’s time to say adieu.
When you start something like this, you have no idea it will go on for ten years and a thousand posts. During that time we’ve run the gamut on tech topics with a focus on software, technology, new business developments and of course given our core mission, extoling the benefits of Enterprise Resource Planning systems. We’ve posted pretty much very Tuesday and Thursday, like clockwork. We are nothing if not consistent.
Now, with this final post as the official PSSI Blog, we’re making some changes. Please, read on.
After 30 years at the helm of PSSI, I’m sliding gently into retirement. It’s a simple passing of the mantle, as our new President Larry Lukasik has already been leading the PSSI team over the past year. Our clients, our business partners and our future are in very good hands I can assure you.
Over three decades I’ve been fortunate to build a business and support a life, and now I get to pass that on, with the full team intact, as my successor Larry takes the company in the direction that best fits his business vision. By the end of 2019, I will be officially out of the picture. It’s been a great run, and we’ve enjoyed some real successes and triumphs, along with a few mistakes, a bad decision here or there, but also the chance to work with more than a few good people. Combined with a little luck, some great customers and a fierce determination, we’ve survived three decades of tech turbulence and emerged the better for it. Now it’s someone else’s turn. No regrets.
We’ve decided we’re better served at this point to switch to a monthly newsletter format where we can keep customers, prospective clients and all manner of business associates up to date on what’s new with our company and products. Thus, going forward, we’ll produce a brief monthly digest of the latest news around PSSI and our world of business consulting, productivity improvement and ERP, especially as it relates to the products we work with and the companies we can help most.
We’re leaving all our old posts up, attached to the knowledge bank at our new website www.pssiusa.com, to serve as a catalog of ideas and advice about how to do ERP, along with all our other business and technology posts from over the years. But we’ll leave the new writing to the newsletter going forward.
Blog recipients will automatically receive our newsletter, but on a monthly basis in place of what was the twice-weekly format of our blog. We promise to keep the content relevant and in keeping with our mission of improving our clients’ businesses through savvy business expertise, the best technology and tools, and the guidance in how to use them.
I’ll continue to edit that newsletter for a while, eventually turning it over to the new team when it’s finally my time to go. We hope you’ll continue to follow us through the newsletter, and we thank everyone for ten years of supporting our blog. Now, on to new things!
