International Women's Day made for some excellent discussion around the GRAYBOX office. One of our partners, Wildfang, wrote a great piece about honoring women and, in fact, every human on a daily basis.

GRAYBOX was awarded a Davey Award for our work with Portland English Language Academy!
Accelo is a powerful tool for time entry. As consultants, GRAYBOX requires an agile bit of software that evolves as we do. Accelo helps us by offering partners transparency into every minute of time that we record. This transparency helps us keep our partner retention rates super high.

GRAYBOX moved into a bigger space in July and wanted to offer the digital community a free events space in Portland.

GRAYBOX is pleased to announce that it is hosting FREE events in our Portland office. Here is a list of Portland digital community events both at our office and elsewhere!
At GRAYBOX we’re a team of solution-hungry, tech-curious, digital consultants. So naturally when one of our developers accidentally destroyed his pants at a big office outing, he looked to Amazon Prime Now to overcome this obstacle to having a good time.
Clean. Simple. I'll throw in a bigger word combo to complete the picture… "semantic-friendly". Those words encapsulate why I've come to prefer Bourbon in recent projects and haven't missed my old friend Bootstrap.

We took a look back at the ecommerce trends for Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2016 and came away with a few notable stats. Not only has Cyber Monday picked up a lot of speed, but it looks set to overtake Black Friday while mobile sales broke the $1billion dollar mark and an unlikely clothing retailer out sold the combined likes of Macy's, Nordstrom, Kohl's, Gap, and L Brands.
