What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

It’s my job to educate users on the best ways to use our product. While anyone can push the buttons, I always ask “why?” and “what is the user trying to accomplish?” I'm not only demonstrating the product, but also the value it adds to the workflow of the customer. By interacting with users, we are not just teaching but also learning.
