Ambitious goals have been laid for 2012 based on forecasted growth after analyzing past trends. New Package pricing has enabled easier understanding of offerings and quicker decisions by various prospects.

The Future:

          Thanks to the rapid growth of Passageways user community, CommuniTree, the company continues to narrow the focus and stoke the fires. Fueled by the feedback from longstanding customers and the expansive list of new Passageways family members, Passageways is poised to shatter the Web 2.0 ceiling and thrust the industry into uncharted waters. 2012 will see the introduction of new software, focused direction, effective communication, and increased functionality. With a mission of empowering intuitive employee collaboration, Passageways is dedicated to make 2012 a year to remember.

“Passageways development is an ever evolving team. This year we have undertaken several big changes internally that will allow us to focus on the needs of our customers that have been directly communicated to us through our user community. Community is the only way to continue to grow as a business and we have the best.” says Christopher Beltran, Co-Founder – Passageways.

                2012 will see the introduction of a new philanthropic arm of Passageways under the banner of Software with Soul, which will launch as the year progresses. Passageways believes strongly in giving back to the community in which they care for so much. Passageways Pathfinders have long been active in events like the American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure and a variety of other causes. This year Passageways will choose a cause close to their hearts and begin working together as a team, not only individually to make a change in the world. Look for more details as the year progresses.
