We had the good fortune of connecting with John Barton and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi John, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind our success at Point ‘N Save would be our ability to pivot and adapt to whatever is thrown at us. We create game-changing software that allows chambers of commerce and non-profits to have their own branded mobile application. During this time we’ve had to adapt and provide a way for our clients to earn revenue in different ways and this has actually helped us come out with new features for our clients that we would not have been able to come up with if we were not willing to adapt and evolve!
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
At Point ‘N Save, we have created game-changing software that allows chambers of commerce and non-profits to have their own branded mobile application. We really sets us apart is that we create user-friendly and intuitive mobile apps for chambers and non-profits that allow them to connect with the next generation while also generating revenue. We are most excited about the future and how many chambers of commerce and non-profits we can help with our technology. We believe members of these organizations deserve a more modern and meaningful way to connect with each other. It was not easy to get where we are today. It took a lot of sacrifices and constant change to perfect what we offer now. We have learned that you can’t be everything for everyone. You have to pick a niche and focus on perfecting what you offer to that niche. That’s why we are so proud to offer our software to chambers and non-profits. We believe we have something that is modernizing the way they operate. We want the world to know that what we provide is so different than anything else out there. We don’t just “make apps” for anyone. We specialize in providing excellent customer service and go above and beyond for our clients in the non-profit world.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
In my view, Orange County has so much to offer! If my friends are visiting from out of town I would first take them to Newport Beach for the day and then go out to dinner at one of the many great places to eat. Next I would take them to one of the many theme parks we have here. Such as Disneyland, Knott’s, or Universal Studios.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
We absolutely recognize that our success and where we are now was not all on us. We believe that God has played a huge role in introducing us to the right people who supported and mentored us along the way. We were apart of the Cal State Fullerton Startup Incubator as well and that gave us the insight and connections we needed to really get going!
