Streamlining the Vision – The Annual Battle of Goals vs. Calendar

Anne Hale, our Director of Client Services, snuck in this week’s post while Wes was out of town…. As I’m writing this, I’m realizing that we are less than three weeks away from Christmas. The panic is beginning to take hold. The panic is real. I know I’m not alone in…

Strategic Management of Assets – A View from the Front Yard

Holiday movie season has started at my house. One of the movies that I caught was Christmas with the Kranks. Early in the movie, there is a reference to how much money the main characters spent on Christmas the year before. Let’s just say – it was FAR more…

The Season for Thanks

It’s hard to believe that the holidays are beginning. Here in St. Louis, the Fall season and it’s colors seemed like they arrived late. Now all of a sudden, most leaves (and temperatures) have dropped and it’s time to get ready for turkey and holiday chaos. It’s even harder…

Critical Visibility – Now & Into the Future

The other day, I was listening to Bryan Seely deliver a webinar on cyber security. He was relating all kinds of anecdotes throughout his presentation. It was a great combination of information and entertainment – with some good motivational discomfort that made you want to take a look in…

Is Healthcare a Service or a Business?

This is just one of the many questions that surround the topic of Healthcare. It doesn’t seem like a day goes by where Healthcare isn’t discussed. A right, an entitlement, private options, public options, government run, privately run….the list goes on. But getting back to the question of whether…

The Supply Chain of Halloween – Changes in Perspectives

Anne Hale, our Director of Client Services, hijacked this week’s post while Wes wasn’t looking…. I recently returned from a high school reunion (no, I won’t tell you which one) where a lot of time was spent talking about activities and traditions we had growing up. Given the time…

The Ultimate Measurement of Success for an Automation Project: Transition to Production

I had the opportunity this week to work with a potential customer on implementing our asset solution in their organization.   The majority of our discussions focused on moving the solution into production – and rightly so! In my two decades of providing automated software solutions, the true measurement of…

assetsPLUS Tablet Support – The Right Thing to Do

I really enjoy writing about business challenges and successes in my weekly posts – and reading those types of posts from others. For me, it is equally exciting when we get to brag about something new that we’re bringing to the market and to our customers. This week I’m…

Is it worth a Penny to protect A Benjamin?

Of course it is, right? It seems like a foolish question, but it’s one left unanswered in many organizations – particularly when it comes to your fixed assets. Fixed assets typically represent the largest single investment of most organizations. In today’s world where we’re growing more towards service-based businesses,…
