The monthly top 5: August

I finally flipped the kitchen calendar from August to September. I’ll be ok, once I stop crying.

Oh, the tears. They taste like summer. … With a hint of Banana Boat.

Now, the news.

The top 5

1. I’ll be back

If you’ve been missing our fun comic strip, don’t worry, it will be back. Very soon.

Until then, take a look at our most popular post, not just for August, but the entire year. It’s probably because the comic is a light-hearted look at digital transformation – and we all know how difficult it can be to rally an entire organization around an idea. Even one that will make life better for everyone involved.

Hasta la vista!

2. The high-tech future of accounts payable

For the third month in a row, this great blog post by Danielle Simer, marketing portfolio manager at Hyland, is in the top five.

Moving up one slot, this hit is burning up the charts as it discusses how artificial intelligence, big data, and blockchain will take accounts payable into the future.

While the true impact of these emerging technologies are still years ahead, organizations that are prioritizing them now say it helps them create a competitive advantage that validates their leadership.

3. Announcing two awesome speakers at CommunityLIVE

We’re stepping up our game this year for CommunityLIVE.

More than 275 sessions and 40 expert stations will show you how to improve your organization’s processes and empower you to deliver the best customer experience possible. Then, after the days are over, we’re going to wow you with our guest speakers and entertainment.

In his popular blog post, Drew Chapin, our chief marketing officer, explains why Miral Kotb and Trevor Moawad are going to deliver innovative and powerful keynotes on Wednesday and Thursday at the conference.

Also, in case you haven’t heard yet, Third Eye Blind will be playing for attendees at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on Wednesday night!

4. How do you measure success? Probably not like anyone else

“Last month, my sister and I both participated in a 5K race,” said Brittany Henthorn, a member of Hyland’s Global Services team. “She judged her performance on elapsed time. I considered simply crossing the finish line a huge success.”

“No need to mention how long it took me to get there,” she said. “Really, let’s not mention it. Ever.”

So in business, how do we measure success? You’re probably thinking it depends.

You’re right. It depends on your industry, your organization, the size of your business, your competitors, your process – the list goes on.

Check out Henthorn’s post to learn three great ways to measure your organization’s success.

5. From soldier to civilian

Veterans are an important part of the #HylandLife and strengthen our organization in all areas. That’s why we offer many resources to help and encourage success as they transition from military to civilian life.

Check out stories from two of our very own vets: Raquel Rivera, a QA analyst, and Rich Ventresca, a test engineer. Their journeys are different, but they share the common bond of serving in the U.S. military and being an important part of the Hyland family.

To find out more, check out the full blog post by Kathleen Vegh, Hyland’s senior HR manager.

Hasta la proxima vez
