Well, it’s that time of year again. ALA. You can feel the buzz in the air. Everyone around here at Mango is getting geared up to go to Chicago this week for the ALA Annual Conference. This show is going to be very special. We have a lot of great things that we are very excited to show off. Yes, of course, we are going to have wonderful music from around the world and dancers performing engaging international dance styles such as Brazilian Capoeira. And naturally we will be serving the world’s greatest Mango smoothies. But all that is just icing on the cake. We are really there for one main reason; to show you that we listen to you and have been listening to your feedback all along.
Ever since we entered the library market we have received great feedback from libraries and library patrons on ways to improve our product. We have also received requests for many new languages. We will be unveiling the latest incarnation of the Mango Language Learning system at the conference. The geniuses in our marketing department decided to call it “Mango 2.0″. You will see that it is rich with new features, a beautiful new makeover, an enhanced pedagogy, and many new languages. You will be pleasantly surprised to find that almost all of the feedback that you have given us has been accounted for in a significant way in Mango 2.0. Furthermore, we will be demonstrating our new library administration portal designed specifically for our library accounts.
If you are coming to the ALA Conference be sure to visit us at booth # 4827 and remember to ask for your Free Mango T-Shirt (in any language other than English). We look forward to seeing you there.
