I’m sitting here writing this as my chartered spacecraft hurtles towards Mars, gazing out the window to see that beautiful blue marble (Earth) recede into the blackness of space. I’m joining an advanced team of RMail and RSign product experts and customer success heroes, as we prepare for our big annual conference, Optimize!2021. (Note to shareholders: we all got to Mars flying coach.) I’m only a couple hours away from landing on the Red Planet where we’re setting up our state-of-the-art conference center facility for next Thursday’s June 17th conference. Optimize2021! will begin midnight Mars time, and we’ve imported lots of Guatemalan coffee to keep us all awake for the duration.
Technology has been so ubiquitous for so long that we may fall prey to the gimmickry of it all. Wow! A robot dog! A smart outdoor grill! Dogecoin! One of the pitfalls for people in our industry is that technology is often pursued for technology’s sake and not for what it is truly intended for: making people’s lives easier.
There’s a lot going on at RPost these days. We’ve announced the first in a series of SMART enhancements to RMail and RSign as the start of its SMART-as-a-Service 2021 product updates.

What do Napoleon, Robert Oppenheimer, and Abraham Lincoln have in common (aside from being famous)? Allegedly, they were all horrible multitaskers. In fact, multitasking, or the ability to deal with more than one discrete task at once, is not necessarily something we humans were ever naturals at.
You may recall that our June 2020 Global User Conference was all about optimizing business processes with more digitization. At a time when there was a vast shift to working from home and shifting to electronic delivery of documents and communications, I’d like to think we were at the vanguard of new movement.
