Slide Show: CRN Fast Growth Companies On Challenges For 2008


"We are anticipating another year of exceptional growth across multiple technologies and segments. In particular, we see significant opportunities in advanced technologies such as wireless networking and IP telephony as well as strong growth in systems and application development. Additionally, the middle market, a core segment for us, has become an increasingly important buyer of technology

"Our greatest continual challenge is recruiting. Most companies look for talent who meet a specific job function. At Axispoint, we expect much more from our people. Not only do they have to be good at what they do, but they also have to possess qualities around customer care and problem solving. If we hire right, our company's success is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Talent begets talent and a positive culture creates job satisfaction. This leads to high employee and ultimately customer retention -- a strong formula for growth."

-- Daniel DiSano, president and CEO
