Meet the Content Mechanics!
In anticipation of ASAE Annual 2015, set to begin in Detroit on August 8th, we have been featuring automotive-themed posts on the blog, which will continue in the Omnipress booth (#515) as well. Today’s focus is the “pit crew” you can count on to help you tune up your content engine: your content mechanics, a.k.a. the Omnipress team. Let’s walk around the “garage” so you can meet everybody.
Though you may not realize it, your experience with the Omnipress team begins before you reach out to us. After all, you understand that your due diligence begins with researching a potential new provider. When you perform an online search, you indirectly “meet” the marketing team, which consists of my colleague, marketing manager Aaron Manogue, and yours truly.
Maybe you read the website or a few blog posts before picking up the phone to call an account manager, reach out to us through live chat on Omnipress.com, or email email@example.com. You are also welcome to connect with us on social media! You’ll find us on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.
Whether you filled out a form on our website and heard right back from Janel Savich, received a call from Holly Meyers, or spoke with Bob Hamm at ASAE Annual or another conference, a member of the sales team was likely your first Omnipress contact.
Right away, you probably noticed that we operate a little differently. Our account managers are friendly and helpful. They are truly interested in bringing your association to the best solution for the conference content challenges you face every day. Our account managers are knowledgeable, experienced (half the team has been with Omnipress for over a decade!), and ready to help, whenever you need them.
Once you start working with Omnipress, you’ll be matched with a dedicated project manager, who will become your lifeline during your conference content process. Whether you work with Brandon Butzler for abstract management, Kristi Connelly for conference printing, Rob Bossingham for apps, or any of project managers, you’ll enjoy a pleasurable working relationship. Equal parts magician and problem-solver, each PM will help you collect, manage, and deliver conference content to your attendees. Even better, they’ll do it in a way that will make the process easier for you.
Other individuals will also help you along the way, from Deb Beyler and Kristen Phillips, whose friendly voices will answer your calls to 800-828-0305, to the production team, which handles in-house printing and takes care of shipping so your materials are received at your conference site on time and looking great. Project technicians take on the formatting and design of projects printed and digital. It takes a village to make your conference content the best it has ever been.
At the helm, you’ll find caring, relatable leaders like CEO Tracy Gundert and a quartet of Vice Presidents: Greg Hubbard (production), Patty Keller (sales), Steve Manicor (business development), and Jonny Popp (administration). Our product directors—Sean Lawler (digital services) and Dan Loomis (training)—help Omnipress move in the right direction. Whether or not you have the pleasure or interacting with our leaders, you’ll see their fingerprints on everything we do.
Now you’ve become acquainted with the full team of content mechanics on the blog—meet a few of them in person! You’ll find them at ASAE Annual in booth #515. Stop by!
