Zammuto has brought a wealth of experience to his role at Brand.com. His executive positions before coming to Brand.com have included:
- COO at ChaCha - ChaCha is a question and answer website. When Zammuto was COO, the company grew to be a Top 5 mobile site and a top 20 social media destination. It also made the list as a Top 50 website.
- COO at Ontario Systems - Ontario Systems provides accounts receivable and revenue cycle management solutions to the health care and collections industries. Zammuto describes his time with the company as the “most challenging and rewarding” of his career. Under Zammuto’s watch, the company invested in three major areas: Research and Development, innovation, and people. Using a “Rapid Transformation” process, the company developed several new strategies, including a business and operating strategy, new corporate strategy, and new talent strategy, all to push the company to the next stage of growth.
- Founder, Sapago - Zammuto founded the independent software vendor Sapago, which produced products that relied on RFID technology. Sapago technology pre-dated QR codes and allowed customers to scan barcodes and RFID tags on products to more fully interact with the company selling or producing those products. Sapago was awarded the 2005 “Best in Show” award at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference. The “Crafts Report” also named it one of the “Top 5 Products Your Business Can’t Live Without” in 2005.
- Chief Technology Officer, Ecometry Corporation – During his time as CTO of Ecometry Corporation, the company grew and was eventually sold to Golden Gate Capital. The company then acquired two other companies and developed into Escalate Retail. Escalate was then purchased by Red Prairie, a company committed to enhancing the visibility of businesses.
A number of media outlets have interviewed Zammuto and sought out his expertise. In 2004, he was interviewed by Global Office, a show that aired on CNN. The segment he was interviewed for examined the role of technology officers in business and companies, specifically the role they should play in the development of business strategy for the long term and the role they should play on company boards. In his interview, Michael Zammuto noted that it was uncommon for a CIO to become a CEO. He also addressed the fact that CIOs are charged with the often difficult job of educating CEO’s on technology, which is ever changing.
In 2004, Michael Zammuto was interviewed by CFO magazine for an article that discussed the “Great Divide” between CFO’s and CIO’s. Additionally, the Art-FID system developed by Sapago was profiled by the website Endgadget in 2005. Sapago products were also written about in RFID Journal and Retail Bulletin.
In 2010, Mike Zammuto led a webinar for the site ExecSense. His webinar provided tips on writing for CTOs. The hour long session contained advice on the ways CTOs could communicate more effectively through writing, including writing presentations and emails to clients and employees. The seminar also listed 10 areas that many CTO writers struggled with and answered commonly asked questions. The goal of the webinar was to give CTOs tips that they could put to use immediately.
Mike Zammuto: Working With Microsoft
In addition to his executive level work with a number of companies, Zammuto also had the privilege of partnering with Microsoft when he was the COO at Ontario Systems. The goal of the company’s strategic partnership with Microsoft was to improve innovation. Due to the partnership, Ontario Systems was a finalist for the Innovation of the Year Mira Award at Techpoint.
Another result of the partnership was a case study, written by Microsoft in 2010, that detailed the connection between Ontario Systems and Microsoft. Ontario Systems’ goal was to provide new features and functionality faster. It decided to use Microsoft’s technology platform instead of similar platforms offered by Oracle and IBM. Ontario Systems became a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner. As as result of the partnership, the company was able to bring products to market 50 percent faster and was able to expand the markets it reached.
Collect Savvy, a software product, was a more tangible result of the partnership between Microsoft and Ontario Systems. The software was available as software-as-services and as an on-premises version. It helped companies build more revenue by offering a better way to handle receivables.
Collect Savvy was designed to be used by any size company. With the newly developed software, Ontario Systems was able to reach a newer customer base, in particular law offices and smaller health care facilities. It also allowed Ontario Systems to better serve its current client base. With the software, companies could increase automation. They were also able to get a new insight into their business operations.
