On to work, it has been a quiet week here as we are getting prepared to launch the personalized URL program I mention in last week’s post. At this point we are just waiting for the design to get done and beta testing to start. Can’t wait. Even if we can get a 5% response rate each week it would be a huge improvement over our current marketing efforts. We shall see!
Also, we are really excited to start our relationship with a new risk management firm and insurance carrier. More to come on this next week when the change is finalized. One highlight is that our new group has an added value of ½ hour per month with an attorney and ½ hour per month with an HR specialist free of charge. Wow is that helpful for a small business!
As spring rolls in around here we are in full swing for spring cleaning. Please let us know if we can help with Window Washing, Carpet Cleaning, Parking Lot Maintenance, or Landscaping.
Mitch - Facility Service Manager:
This week is cruising right by! Same thing as last week with energy savings for multiple customers! A lot of time and energy goes into the details of each project because as much as they seem similar, each job is unique one way or another when it comes to how things are installed, wired, etc. One customer is really excited to see the energy savings and total cost of the project and get rolling in April or May if possible.
Friday’s are a great day, we're wrapping up our week, we have a short route in the morning leaving time in the afternoons to catch up on administrative work, or do what I normally do which is meet IC’s at buildings. This Friday I am meeting the delivery folks dropping off my 25 fixtures for the parking garage energy project. Afterwards I am heading just a couple miles down the road to meet an HVAC specialist to look at taking over their quarterly preventative maintenance contract for them. That will be the first one for me up to this point, but I think Greg and Tyler have a couple that they work on in the north end of town so it is not new to City Wide by any means. Hopefully we can help with that and give the office manager one less thing to worry about each quarter!
In the mean time, while we're in Duluth, we're going to Taste!, a dining fundraiser where area chefs make their specialties and we sample food and wines to our tummy's content. The next day is our drive up the Hwy 61, to be followed by a 90 minute massage with my name written all over it. We're leaving Saturday up for grabs, but secretly I hope we go dancing to make use of those dance lessons last year...
