Putting the Faces to the Voices

February 27, 2009

mavsgameChances are, if you call us at Innovative at 877.906.2100, you’ll talk to either Jesse Simental or Todd Mueller in our customer service department, deemed LEGENDARY by both friend and foe alike.

From time to time, they are allowed out of the office. Fulfillment pro Saul Saucado (left) along with Jesse and Todd took a field trip to watch the Mavs scorch the Bucs Wednesday night at AA Center, 116-96. Klent Prewitt, he of legendary sales prowess, took the photo.

Looks like decent seats. Was it Hat Night and if so, did Todd miss the freebie line?

Weatherley is shown here just before drinking his orange juice from his offcial Innovative Sippy Cup.

Thanks to Arc Specialties being one of the LEGENDARY good guys in Houston commerce.

It’s a hassle. Where do I take it? How much will it cost? Where will I find the time?

Innovative’s electrical component repair service is so easy, you hardly do anything. Gather your items, call us for a pickup, and then decide — based on information we provide — to fix the item, replace it, or trash it.

And you’re now on to the next thing in your life.

Reason #102 to Work at Innovative: Decorative Decanters

February 19, 2009

meeting2Ask us for a quote on a project and we’ll turn it around quick. We just completed one and won a job to help with a major water fountain project at a City of Dallas landmark facility.

Also, when we actually work on quotes, we have lavish wine decanters and blue, plastic roses present for inspiration, like Innovative’s Tim Mueller, Adam Ring and Gene Gray did in this promotional photo from 2006.

At our Houston office, the guys huddle around yellow roses but use the same decorative decanters when doing quotes.
