Name one fun fact that makes your company different from others.
The founders of 42Gears were (and are) huge science fiction fans. When looking for a name that described the enterprise solution they wanted to create, they thought of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and its famous use of the number 42 as the ultimate answer to the most important questions in the universe. 42Gears represents an ultimate answer for ensuring all the gears of an organization fit together effectively and run well.
What is the most encouraging thing you see for the future of the retail IT industry?
As consumers begin to return to in-person retail settings, there will be a lot of pressure on frontline workers to handle high demand. This is where retail IT can come in, playing a crucial role in the return to standard retail routines. Software providers and resellers can come together to offer businesses easy-to-use and inexpensive device management solutions that keep workers focused, safe, and connected at all times.
