SCHNITTPUNKT UG visits GigaPan

Sometimes a business trip can be nice, good or even outstanding. My visit with GigaPan in Portland, Oregon was outstanding.

On Friday, April 12th, my friend Clay from Bodelin (based in Portland as well) brought me to GigaPan, which is located in the historical Northwest district. I first met with Susan Thesing, the Director of Business Development and Marketing, who welcomed me, gave me a tour of their building, and introduced me to the GigaPan employees.

I had the opportunity to meet with many individuals at GigaPan and talk with them in depth. Josh Friedman, CEO of GigaPan, talked with me about their products, sales, roadmap, and other future plans. I met with Chad Rogers, the Production Manager, who walked me through their production line. It was really great to see the GigaPans being assembled in Portland, Oregon on their manufacturing floor. In addition, I met with Michael Long, the Mechanical Engineer, to talk with him about about the GigaPan hardware in detail.

The end of my meeting with GigaPan was the best part of my visit: talking with Susan and the marketing team. I enjoyed hearing how GigaPan uses Facebook, public relations, and mailings as part of their overall marketing strategy. The team wanted to learn more about how SCHNITTPUNKT UG can successfully promote GigaPan and their technology to their customers in Germany. Thank you, GigaPan – I hope to see you next time in Cologne, perhaps at a GigaPan workshop.
