XTRF Community: What We Learned from Starbucks, and You

The XTRF Community, originally inspired by a community-building project by Starbucks, has been incredibly beneficial. Not only has it provided a forum for sharing ideas amongst XTRF users and staff, but it has also evolved into XTRF Academy, and resulted in some excellent ideas for the software’s development. 36 of these ideas implemented thus far, and there are many more in the pipeline. Discover what we’ve learned from Starbucks, our clients and our partners.
