Man in Rabbit Suit Leading Daily Meeting

June 21, 2011

Each morning, one of our employees leads our daily meeting. The meeting each day gives us an opportunity to recognize each other for exemplary acts of customer service and company improvements. Sam Hestand obviously took his day to lead to heart. That first command you hear is him asking the group, “BOOKINGS GOAL!?”

No, we don’t know why he’s in a rabbit suit, any more than we know why about this crazy moment in the lunchroom.  Or what about this? It’s just the way things roll at Innovative-IDM, the home of legendary customer service. And sometimes, it’s better just to not ask questions. Want to join our team?

AC Drive Blows Fire Balls Out Back

June 7, 2011

Our repair depot in Houston has done repair work on nearly 10,000 different part numbers over the years, including many AC motor controllers. Sometimes, our customers try to do the maintenance themselves, with sometimes disastrous results. However, when you get notes like this from customers, you only can smile and be glad to help out. It reads, “Our cleaning help said it blew fire balls out the back when he sprayed it with cleaner.”
