This post writes up my take on a discussion on the VRM List, that initially asked the question ‘can reviews be made portable so that they can appear in more than one place?’. The short answer is we believe yes, there is at least one way to do that, using JLINC, and quite possibly other […]
I spent most of 2012 with head down consulting on a couple of big ‘CRM plus VRM’ propositions – more on those when they show up in the wild. So i’ve been pondering on where to focus on in 2013. I put together this Venn diagram to help think through which areas of our work […]

This post is a short(ish) summary of a working session led by Drummond Reed and me at the recent West Coast VRM Workshop, and also an introduction to the Kantara workgroup in which we are going to move this debate forward. It is also part of the thinking that will short emerge in a Mydex […]
I just love that quote from James Gardner of LloydsTSB, who goes on to say… ‘No, the only way to get to markets of one is if customers make the products themselves. This is where the “mash up” I spoke of my in my last post comes in. Customers, who are able throw together bits […]
I’ll be speaking at this event next week in Edinburgh about VRM and the Mydex initiaitive. Also, moves are afoot to get a Scotland based ‘chapter’ up and running to do some local pushing forward on VRM initaitives.
