Having our company based in Las Vegas has a lot of perks, and no we aren’t talking casino comps, fine dining, and golf courses as far as the eyes can see.
We are talking about the community. You may have heard about an emerging technology hub being born in Las Vegas, collectively called #VegasTech.
The booming start-up community in Las Vegas is nothing short of amazing and we are proud to be a part of such an amazing group of leaders and innovators.
Okay enough of the mushy stuff and to the point. Our office isn’t in Downtown Las Vegas where a lot of the emerging tech companies reside. Wintech LLC the parent company of ALICE Receptionist has actually been creating software solutions in Las Vegas for over 20 years and only 3 years ago decided to focus on our own product, ALICE Receptionist.
The great part of our history in Las Vegas is we have had our own office for some time, the bad part is sometimes we feel disconnected from the amazing community of startups coalescing in Downtown Las Vegas. So a couple of us from the office have decided to try and work from one of the new co-working spots Downtown a couple times a month.
A lot of individuals and companies in the #VegasTech scene have begun working out of a co-working building called Work in Progress (317 S 6th Street), so we figured let’s start there!
It was a great experience seeing so many familiar faces and getting the opportunity to work in such an energetic environment. The chatter in the background of people discussing different pricing models, the excitement of people sharing new user interface designs for their yet to be released apps, and the sea of coders and designers in head down mode feverishly working to build the next disruptive tech product of the future.
We will definitely be getting a membership to WIP and the moral of the story is even if your work environment is awesome it’s good to get out, explore and work amongst like-minded people because not only is it inspiring to be around so many doers and thinkers you never know what could happen, your next big idea or just meeting a new friend.
Get out of the office, and if you’ve got an ALICE Receptionist system, you can be rest assured knowing visitors can still reach you, even if you’re working remotely. 😉
