Part way through January and we are already off to a great start!
Business at VoIP Supply, our primary business unit, continues to grow at a solid pace. Our growth is reflected not exclusively with regard to our financials, but also with our team, culture, innovation and expertise.
Our newer business unit (CloudSpan) has begun to take shape with initial employees, systems and processes and plans for its future. We are expecting big things in this division as the year progresses.
So, what happened in 2013?
A lot happened and here are some of the highlights:
- As sart of our purpose of Doing Well so that we are Empowered to Do Good, we launched a campaign to help feed the homeless in Buffalo and were successful in donating more than 10,000 meals to the City Mission. Other charities and organizations that we were involved in this past year include Camp Good Days and Special Times, the SPCA, Child and Family Services of Niagara and the Riverkeeper Shoreline Sweep.
- A lot of time and effort was invested in refining our culture and integrating it into the daily operations. In doing so, we created and implemented our one-page-plan that makes visible for all employees, our 3 year, 1 year and quarterly goals, metrics and celebrations to be had. We also identified many of the critical numbers to be measured within the organization to help highlight areas of excellence or improvement. These critical numbers also help us better predict the future of business within our companies.
- The company was nominated for and won several awards this year as well. These include WNY’s Fast Track 50, WNY’s Most Admired Companies, WNY’s Most Ethical Companies, WNY’s Best Places to Work and Western New York’s Top 50 Private Companies. We also retained our B-Corp certification.
We have big plans for 2014 and are looking forward to another amazing year with an amazing group of people!
