Happy GOOD Friday, everyone! This week I'll be bringing the news in sarahd's place while she's on vacay. It's only 40 degrees here, but she's probably in shorts and sipping a mai tai! Ok, bear with me. Here goes:
Ops Ware: Our engineers have been hard at work on a set of tools for the Republic Help Team over the past few weeks, and we're excited that this module is almost ready! We've been working to improve our response time and shorten the time it takes to help you resolve your issue. In mid to late April, engineers will release this module for the Republic Help Team so that we're better equipped to assist some of your more common requests. Look for more info on this soon!
Know what Monday is? April Fool's Day... That's right, a day of pranks. I caught wind of some info that Marketing might be planning something on Facebook and Twitter around one of our favorite days on the calendar. Go check out @republicwirelss and our Facebook page on Monday, but be careful not to get pranked!
Cornhole Madness: While hundreds of fans are watching March Madness on TV, we decided it was time to get outside. In North Carolina, we indulge in a bean bag toss game called Cornhole (also known as Baggo or Bags). With the coming of spring, we decided it was time to make a bracket of our own.... Cornhole Madness! We signed up in teams with 64 employees participating and 20 turning in a bracket. Entry fees will benefit a national nonprofit called Playworks (we have a local chapter in Durham) that transforms schools by providing play and physical activity at recess and throughout the school day. We're currently in the Elite Eight with Final Four and Championships happening after hours next week. Best dressed award goes to Team Shake 'n' Bake.
