Wow, time flies. September 2013 marks the 1 year anniversary of our new website, blog and this very newsletter. On one hand it’s hard to believe a whole year has gone by, but when I reflect on the past year and realize how much we’ve accomplished it’s easy to see where the time has gone. From establishing new banking relationships to attending trade shows to boarding new merchants to climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro (well, one of us, anyway) and most recently moving offices, it’s been a busy and productive 12 months here at L3!
Speaking of our new office, we’re all very excited to have a new L3 headquarters, but what’s more, we’re using this opportunity to become a more environmentally friendly company. Rather than drive our pollution-causing cars to work, we’ve all acquired autonomous, solar-powered hoverboards! In addition to being a Green vehicle, the ease of floating to work each day on a self-driving hoverboard allows us added time to check email and make phone calls. It’s a win/win!
Man, that would be awesome. Joking aside, the nature of our business allows many of us to work remotely. While some of us are within walking distance to L3, others commute from quite a distance. So in planning for our move, it quickly became apparent that we could find a better space which would allow us to increase the efficiency of our business by minimizing time-wasting commutes and, in turn, lessen our environmental footprint. Well, we’ve done just that, and the change has been beneficial to both L3 employees and our valued merchants. But because we’re such a tight-knit group at L3, we couldn’t go too long without seeing each other, so we’ve designated certain days to meet in person to brainstorm ideas, collaborate on projects and, of course, make fun of Hrag.
We all chipped in during the move to our new office, but our COO Melody and our Controller Mike deserve special recognition for coordinating the efforts and ensuring a completely seamless transition. Thanks, Mike and Melody! And somehow, Melody even found time to write a very informative article detailing how chargeback responsibility affects online merchants. Check it out if you haven’t already.
Lastly, despite our new location, our phone number remains the same, so please feel free to contact us with any questions at 805-449-1191. Or, hit us up on Twitter or Facebook. Until next time, have a great month!
