Fall 2019 Newsletter


Welcome to our Fall 2019 Newsletter




Although it is always with regret that we see the warm season come to an end, we have already begun planning for future improvements in the coming season.

At Octopus the cycle of new features is continuous so we are happy to present in this newsletter the elements that have flourished during the summer as well as to talk about what is already sprouting.

Thanks for taking the time to read our newsletter.
