Above and Beyond Industrial Field Service: Ask Yet Another Happy Customer

May 27, 2014

It happened again. Customers tell our story much better than we can — like this, and this and this. This email cam in to our Houston account rep Ed Hyer, concerning our rock star field service tech Dale Frisk.

Subject: RE: PO# needed for recent field service
Importance: High

I just want to let you know that I really appreciated the help Dale provided last Friday!

Even after we determined it was not a drive issue he continued to work with me and my team to solve the issue. To have a service person willing to help outside of their designated role was a pleasure and a blessing! His help was greatly appreciated.

 Ed you have told me previously that Dale was very good, so this probably does not come to a big surprise. I believe that I let Dale know how thankful I was before he left. I want to let you guy know also.

Thanks for all of your service and support.

Sincerely, Eric XXXXX, Maintenance Supervisor

If you need electrical industrial field service at your maintenance facility in Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Texas or pretty much anywhere in the South — PLC programming, AC Drive initiation or repair, inverter startup, etc., contact Innovative-IDM.

Memorial Day 2014: Remembering the Fallen

May 26, 2014

Graves at Arlington National Cemetary

The Springtime tribute to those fallen in battle, now known as Memorial Day, has been around since the Civil War era. In 1868, Union Major General James A. Logan declared May 30th as Decoration Day – the words in his order for posts to decorate graves still ring true today:

“We should guard their graves with sacred vigilance. … Let pleasant paths invite the coming and going of reverent visitors and fond mourners. Let no neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations that we have forgotten as a people the cost of a free and undivided republic.”

3 p.m. on Memorial Day is the National Moment of Remembrance – take a minute today to remember those who have fought and died in defence of our freedom. For more on the long history of Memorial Day in the United States, click here for an article from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
