Dear Response Point Team,
In your recent public blog you asked “What?s the best way for us to let small businesses know about Response Point?”. In meeting with the Vista marketing team in Denver a couple weeks ago they asked a group of MS Partners what they (Vista Marketing) could have done better to get Vista deployed in SMB where sales have not met expectations. Our response was unanimous. ?Put the product in the hands of your Partners BEFORE you release it!?. Vista RTM was not made available to partners until almost 2 months after RTM. I would think it should be prior. Don?t you?
I think Chris Rue sums it up pretty well in his blog and invite you to take his suggesting seriously and not have to have the same focus group at next year?s WWPC as Vista did at this one.
