What a year 2016 has been! I am particularly proud our new Aptify User Community Blog. The blog started as an idea earlier this year and then moved to its own platform in September of 2016. The blog, in combination with Aptify Connect, has given us all the opportunity to discuss, celebrate and share the achievement of our community, and I am very proud of how far we have come. 

So now, I can look back and give you the best of the best of this year’s blogs. Here’s my top three of 2016, may 2017 be as golden.
