    Pros

    GS is on a roll. The hard work of the last few years is paying off. Sales are up. Market buzz is increasing. And we are receiving in-bound calls from prospects and partners.

    Cons

    Given the significant ramp up in sales, everyone is very busy - pre sales, sales, development, delivery and support,

    Pros

    Recently shifted into more of a managed service delivery company than a pure software company which has had numerous benefits to the internal operation of the company and also with value proposition to the market. Consequently winning business across Americas, Europe and Asia in multiple industry segments. A feeling that the current executive management are getting it right. Also the change to product verticals that divide EDM into specific value propositions has been game changing. Some former employees starting to return which is a reflection on the positive momentum. Concerted all-guns-blazing challenges from the likes of Smartstream's RDU and Markit EDM to displace GoldenSource at a number of Tier 1s have been completely unsuccessful which has also had a galvanising effect inside the company. There is a real buzz about the place now.

    Cons

    GoldenSource is now a global company so communication among the various locations is a challenge and can lead to long days bridging Asia and the Americas. The company needs to invest in partnerships to help scale the company to the next level. Goldensource has historically had a tendency to try to go It alone.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in partnerships, move from managed service to true cloud and try to mutualize services across clients to really harness the network effect that is starting to develop.

    If a dungeon dweller making a cut throat income compared to his US "GoldenSource" counterpart states that the company is beyond help means Mr. Debbane and his minions can't save you!

    Pros

    Company is heading in right direction under real energetic new management. Great values, good talent and spirited new management should bring this company back on its feet sooner.

    Cons

    Considering long term goal and mission there has a been a restructuring in the company. Jobs are being laid off across all geographies but with the only intention to retain good talent and shred cost.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the same tempo. But obviously no more lay offs please
