Smarsh is a cloud-based, big-data SaaS platform that archives all communications for businesses. The platform serves over 20,000 companies, enabling professionals in regulated industries to supervise and search their employees communications across email, social media, IM, and text. The product has been completely transformed in the last 18 months with a progressive, thematic product management approach: 1) Crystallize the product vision through a customer-driven, iterative process, 2) Invest in the underlying infrastructure to re-platform the flagship product for scale & future growth, 3) Transform the application experience to focus on three key workflows for the primary user personas. The Smarsh platform was re-launched earlier this year. Customers' time-to-task has been reduced by 70%, application response times have improved 5x, and the enterprise sales pipeline has improved by 30%.


Staples Dynamic Pricing is a scalable, dynamic pricing engine that helped Staples price items competitively. This engine has generated an impressive 20% year over year revenue growth on the dynamically priced products and, equally importantly, changed shoppers’ perception of Staples competitive pricing.
