    Pros

    Open communications, great culture fostered by CEO. Product and engineering team is smart and hard-working. Founder/CEO is very competent, honest and forthright. BoD/Investors are solid, patient, experienced and smart.

    Cons

    Visionary solution but too early to market. CEO/Founder is the glue that holds it together. Too much dependency on a single person.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in seeding the market. Invest in the partner channel. Focus strategy to create more PS revenue. Pursue the mobile channel much more aggressively.

    Pros

    HTML5 could be a viable technology for enterprise mobile app development and a great alternative to native development

    Cons

    CEO not in control of company. Minimal communication bw US and Israel
    All technical executives are in Israel. Technical executives that are in Israel not skilled in client facing situations. Lacking confidence, interpersonal communication and unimpressive when placed in front of CxO's
    Junior and inexperienced executive team
    No sales leadership and strategy
    High Turnover because of poor leadership.
    Board seemingly unaware of dire situation

    Advice to Management

    Hire a Senior Technical Executive (CTO or VP Dev) in the US able to impress and effectively communicate with C level executives
    Hire a seasoned and experienced sales leader
