Visto must have thought it was on easy street when it won contracts to power Vodafone and AT&T email offerings.
Yet even a great product can’t insulate it from the whims of the market, especially in a credit crunch.
The Register revealed that over a third of Visto’s London employees are being made redundant.
Worryingly for a tech company, they are laying off development staff, the very people that created the product in the first place.
This is a risky strategy as product evolution will be critical to meet the threats from BlackBerry and Microsoft.
Will Visto’s clients stay faithful?
