Omnipresence | Finding Much to be Thankful for This Year
Thanksgiving is traditionally a time to reflect on all the people and events that have made the year special. And for us at Omnipress, that is quite a long list this year! It’s amazing how much has happened in 2016 and how we’ve grown as a company, and as a team. I could probably fill up the entire internet with the names of all the people that made this a year to remember; so instead, here is a short list of some of those that have had the biggest impact.
Thank you to all our customers
First off, I would like to thank all of our customers. We know the trust you put in us throughout the year and we take that responsibility seriously. Whether we are helping you collect conference materials more efficiently, create a publication for your members or deliver training materials to your learners, we thank you for allowing us to be a part of your team.
Thank you to the CATALYST beta testers
A special thank you to the customers that volunteered to beta test CATALYST with us. You provided some great feedback! Having your insight into how event professionals use the system in real-world scenarios was an important step in the development process. I can’t tell you how exciting it was to see the system that we spent so much time designing actually be put to use. We very much look forward to sharing CATALYST with more customers as their collection sites open next year.
Thank you to our employees
Thanks to your hard work, we continue to hit the goals we’ve set for ourselves, and continue to exceed the expectations of our customers. I truly enjoy sharing the positive feedback with you that we receive from our customer survey. (And customers, if you’d like to share your “Thanks” with an employee, please continue to take part in our post-job follow-up survey.) It’s clear that our customers appreciate all the effort you put in to make sure Omnipress stays true to its mission. This truly is a special team and you are what makes Omnipress the place I look forward to coming every day.
There is even more to be thankful for this year than usual. November 25th (the day after Thanksgiving) marks the 40th anniversary of Omnipress. That’s the day owner Bob Felland opened the doors to his campus copy shop for business. I have worked here for nearly half of those years and marvel at how the technology and tools have changed over time. But one thing that hasn’t changed in all that time is the outstanding company culture and the focus on doing right by our customers. That trait was on display on day one and it will continue to be a central part of Omnipress for the next 40 years, as well.
Leading a company with a philosophy of doing right by customers, and the employees to make that happen… Now that truly is something to be thankful for!
