E5 | HeartLegacy, AnyDistance, Fleetio, Loadup, Intown Golf Club, Goodr
Welcome to Five & Thrive: a weekly podcast highlighting the Southeast’s most interesting news, entrepreneurs, and information of the week, all under 5 minutes.
Company Coming Up:
This company is out of Mobile, Alabama lead by Walt Armentrout is called HeartLegacy. What started out as a video product for Senior Living Communities to help preserve life stories has morphed into a SaaS platform for businesses to leverage video. They have two different mobile apps, even titled differently for each market. The one for Senior LIving is called RemyGo, and the other for sales teams with over 250 five star reviews on the app store is called SalesMail. Like email but salesmail. This is a tell tale sign of an entrepreneur heads down in one market (senior living) but still keeping a pulse to where another market is pulling. There is probably a wonderful blog post or even book to be written about this pivot and evolution but in the meantime Walt and the team are growing fast and scaling. If you’re in sales, check them out. Link in the show notes.
