Hey Ilan! What made you leave your IT director position in a major enterprise in order to become Knowmail’s product manager?
Email overload was one of the most challenging and detrimental problems I had to deal with as an IT director. As I was searching for solutions to help individuals deal with this issue, I found Knowmail and simply fell in love with both the product and the team. During Knowmail’s early stage, I joined a “Collaborative Development” program that allowed me to give the product direction and have an impact on its initial features. I was absolutely thrilled to see my feedback evolve into concrete features in the application.

Too often enterprise IT solutions are viewed in black and white terms. If something brings value for the employer (easy to administer, inexpensive), it comes with a cost for the employee (hard to use, lack of functionality). On the other hand, if it’s good for the employee (accessible anywhere, cutting-edge technology) it involves risk for the employer (security risk, costly ramp up). We at Knowmail believe that both parties can be served through solutions that promote unity – a world where Yin and Yang come together, fusing into one.
