With all due respect to video calls and email, it’s also important every now and then for us to personally meet our community. That's why we started the #StaffbaseCommunity Tour this year. In November, a handful of Staffpranos set sail to meet customers, prospects, and partners, all interested in getting to know the Staffbase fans based alongside them locally, and to join them for a day of informative discussions. With a bag full of new features for our employee apps, we made our way to Stuttgart, Munich, Cologne, and London. Each meeting began with a firsthand update from Staffbase CEO Martin, followed by a case study from the community and plenty of time for talk and exchange ideas after.
Deutsche Telekom is one of the world's leading integrated telecommunications companies, with around 168 million mobile customers, 28 million fixed-network lines, and 19 million broadband lines. 218,000 employees (as of 2016) in 50 countries are driving the company's success forward. At the forefront are the more than 7,000 sales representatives with over 67,000 customer contacts every day. Communicating with all of these people, all over the world, is a massive challenge, but it's one that they’ve met head on with the aid of their employee app.
