The Company

Honest Intentions is a brand of Doug Skinner.  He believes the company fulfills its mission on the guiding principles of honesty and integrity.

This principle of honesty led to driving a business strategy to represent as its first product. ImHONEST is a unique lost and found recovery service that allows owners of lost mobile devices to recover them through action of an honest stranger. It has since become part of a successor company under the banner, Doug sees an immense upside potential of reinforcing such a value like honesty.

Going back to the topic of helping mobile device owners, you may remember the days when cell phones were for voice calls. There were no smartphones. Your company issued you a laptop. Your access to the network, the applications, and the data was managed by the corporation. Then came blackberries, then maybe you carried two devices, one personal and one corporate. Things got complicated.

Now days, with the advance of trends like massive security breaches, Software as a Service, Platform as a Service, Big Data, Internet of Things, bring your own device (BYOD), there has been plenty of uncertainty lately. Recent work efforts at Intentional Management have been to simplify the process that companies go through to support their employees, partners, suppliers and customers using cloud services and hand held devices.
