All in one week.

It’s amazing to me how many industries use on-hold messaging… I’m constantly walking into NW businesses and saying, “Who knew this was here?”  Just last week, I was working with:

 

#1: St. Vincent De Paul: Originally a Roman Catholic institution, this charitable organization now helps 350,000 people every year in the Portland area – and 60% of their assistance is through food.  From Milwaukie, OR their warehouse transports 1.3 million pounds a year to the hungry.

 

 

#2: Game Time: Soon to open in Tigard, OR, these guys have taken an old restaurant and upgraded it with bowling lanes, arcades, and over 35 flat screen TV’s.  Ever wonder what the back end of a bowling alley looked like?

 

#3: Stopping in at the Rose Garden for telecom network event sponsored by Allworx, followed by the Portland Winterhawks.  Those are some noisy fans.

 

#4:

Logmax: From Vancouver, WA. this Swedish company distributes logging equipment – specifically, an all-in-one 7000 pound head that cut down, delimb, and stack a tree in 30 seconds.  You can see the video here, it’s pretty incredible.

 

 

#5:E and A Auto Repair gets the Inspirational Award for the week: Nazier came from Sudan by way of Saudi Arabia, where he worked on the Prince’s Rolls Royces.  After work, he rebuilds a Shelby GT 500 “Elanor”.  He figured out a way start his own shop, and now has a very loyal customer base in NE Portland.  

 

All this in one week!  Amazing.  I love my job.
