Chase is expanding to other industries

28 October 2015

Sometimes projects, services or products grow organically to become bigger than you originally intended. You can either reign them in and force them back into their original shape, or you can cut them a bit of slack and see where they take you. I think that’s very true of Chase. Over 16 years ago, we […]

In 1997, The Thomas Group, a US consulting firm, appointed Bob Heckman as their Chief Growth Officer. He lasted 9 months. Apparently, there wasn’t a big need for innovative growth back then. Recently, the CGO has made a comeback. Especially in the ad industry. In this economy, finding new ways to grow is so critical […]

Searching for the Next Small Thing. We all love to look out for the next big thing. But at Chase, we’ve found that it’s the small innovations that make the biggest difference. A new feature that lets you finish a task in 5 minutes instead of 15 may not change the world. But it does […]

We all move on one day. It’s inevitable that things in life will change. And we all want to leave behind a bit of ourselves, a bit of our legacy. Not that I’m thinking of changing anything any time soon because I love what I do, but I very much hope to leave a legacy […]

The Chase Way Chase is more than a company. We’re a family. That includes you. Come to our offices and you might think we really are related. We’re relaxed around each other. It’s the kind of informal environment where you can walk around barefoot. No biggie. For us, building a family spirit is one of […]

A few years ago, I caught an episode of Dr Phil. It’s not really my kind of show but a particular segment got me thinking – and I’ve been reminded of it recently. The host was counselling a husband and wife who were deep in the red with their credit cards. They obviously earned well […]

What is quality? The broad ISO definition is “The totality of features and characteristics of a product or service that bear on its ability to satisfy stated or implied needs.” Note the word “totality”. Quality isn’t easily isolated. It’s not just the materials used or the functionality, the design or the price. It’s all these […]

A Note from Jamie.

16 February 2015

We’ve developed a thick skin over the years. Yup, we’re no strangers to criticism and we’ve had our fair share. “Your platform is old”, “your user interface is staid”, “and the flow is clunky”. We’ve heard it all.  Sometimes we reach for a pinch of salt. More often though, those observations get our serious attention. […]

To New beginnings!

21 January 2015

I’m sure like many people, I feel a bit like 2014 was so quick and such a blur that it’s railroaded straight into 2015! We’ve got off to a frenetic pace already, and it’s teed up to be a thrilling 12 months for us. My hope and wish is that 2015 will prove successful for […]
