I'm a software product manager. Before I went over to the Dark Side, I worked as a software developer, mostly in C++ and SQL. I still write code sometimes, but now only for prototypes and side projects.

Currently, I'm VP Product at Cantaloupe Systems. We're the largest SaaS provider for the vending industry.

At Cantaloupe Systems we put cellular modems inside vending machines, collect data about every sale as well as machine status and alerts, and then crunch the resulting data in our cloud services to help vending operators know which machines need to be refilled and when, what's selling and what's not, who's stealing, which machines are broken, and much more.

I lead a small team responsible for product roadmap, user experience, and agile project management while trying to keep customers happy and revenue growing.

comment How to display a date & time if the date for reporting purposes differs from the actual date?
Nope. Deliveries are scheduled with date granularity-- the company knows that the delivery was on the driver's schedule for a particular date, but only the driver decides when the delivery happens during that schedule.

comment report authoring workflow for non-technical users
Great answer, thanks for the insight. We haven't decided on tech yet-- I'm going to let UX, performance, and cost drive tech selection. Luckily our data size is relatively small (<1TB) so I suspect we'll end up with some sort of in-memory solution for a backend. For front-end, I'm deciding between a very simple UX that our team can build themselves (trading off reporting flexibility for UX simplicity), or integrating with one of many report authoring environments which will give more report authoring options but may overwhelm users. Tough choice; either option has pros/cons.
