A bit of humor from our CEO as we shed a tear on our losing 69 tickets, yet look forward to another drawing this week . . .
Red e App claims Powerball victory! The $800+ Million dollar Powerball ‘equivalent’ wasn’t exactly claimed by a winning ticket, says Jonathan Erwin, Founder and CEO of Red e App.
“You see it started with our Success team”, Erwin continues. “They are eternal optimists in everything they do. They support enterprise mobile users around the globe, day and night – usually helping satisfied Red e App users on the first call.”
“The raucous, laughter and excitement from the Success crew, bleeds over into the rest of the organization”, says Amee Kent, Director of Marketing.
The $800 Million Dollar Powerball winning ‘equivalent’ was the collective brain-child of the team that implements, supports and helps Red e App customers to achieve cross functional excellence across their enterprises. “Why not get all employees in the company to chip in and buy a ticket for the $800 Million Dollar Powerball,” and then quickly realized – “wait a minute, we win the Powerball EVERYDAY here at Red e App,” says success manager, Stef Hogan.
Stef continues, “When I first came to work here at Red e App, I had no idea of the world class development team we had. I mean, I have seen great teams in my past work experience, but the Red e App development team does so much more and has built one of the most complex and sophisticated platforms that I have ever seen!”
It was at that moment that she exclaimed, – “damn-it! – WE HAVE ALREADY WON this thing! We work in the most exciting company on the planet, connecting the OTHER half of the planet that the business world has forgotten and dismissed AND has never been given corporate email. No real time communication, information, schedules, training, safety tips, employee recognition, benefits or access to their own employers!”
“It’s a no brainer. We decided right then, we are the $800 Million Dollar Powerball ‘equivalent’ winners!” said Erwin.
Money can buy a lot ‘they’ say, but working with a balanced team that executes at such a high level every day as Red e App, well it’s simply priceless.
The ‘equivalent’ jackpot (that had rolled to priceless status) began more than 2 years ago when Red e App secured their first enterprise company, General Electric. “It was electric at that time . . . ‘you can’t see it, you gotta feel it, ooh its shakin, we don’t want to lose it’!” says Patrick Goodman, Chief Product Officer, quoting the Hit Crew’s smash hit Electric Slide.
How to play Powerball ‘equivalent’: Players choose to feel great everyday and GSD, OR, pay $2 and select five white balls from the first set of 69 numbers plus a single red ball, the Powerball, from a second set of 26 numbers. Players may select their own numbers using a Powerball playslip, or they may opt for computer-selected quick picks. Players must match all five numbers drawn plus the Powerball number to win the jackpot. There also are eight additional ways for players to win a cash prize. But again, these methods often leave one with an empty feeling, unless they win the Powerball ‘equivalent.’
Powerball is sold in 44 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. And this Powerball winning feeling is available to any company that chooses to do so. It’s obvious Red e App does.
