2017 has been a very busy year for X2CRM | X2Engine Inc. and I am excited to share a few of our most recent accomplishments. First off, it is with great pleasure to announce a new round of investment into X2Engine Inc, and our new company Chairman, David Buchanan. A long time ago, in 1995 actually, I was offered a job with a very new and exciting, first generation CRM software company located in Santa Clara, California called Aurum Software – a pioneer in Sales Force Automation software. After five days driving my pick-up across the country from Georgia I began my silicon valley career working for Dave Buchanan, founder of Aurum Software. Like X2CRM, Dave founded Aurum out of his garage and grew the company very quickly into hugely successful NASDAQ IPO in 1999. Aurum was one of the very first CRM software IPO’s and I had the great pleasure to learn from Dave in these early years of my CRM life. [July 10, 2017]
With Dave’s oversight X2CRM is now even more energized with additional company funding, expanded engineering and services team and new engineering office in Santa Cruz. I welcome Dave to our board of directors and am excited to have him on our leadership team as Chairman.
