What's New ?
 Child's Play

Did you ever play a pick-up game when you were a child? Typically, two captains would alternate, each picking a potential team mate until everyone had been chosen. Modern business can often be similar to a youthful pick-up game. People often choose a business much like we used to choose sides for a game in the vacant lot. It wasn't always based on who was best or even based on who would give us the best chance to win. The Captain's choices were often based more on popularity than they were about who would be a better team mate.

There is a stark difference between a pick-up game among children and choosing who to do business with, but you already knew that. It is easy to do business with someone who is popular. But just because it's easy doesn't mean it is the right choice. Making the right choice when deciding who to do business with isn't as simple as choosing our friends for a fun game. We have to make certain that the person we choose can do the job and do it well, and for the right price. If not, we run the risk that we will over pay, or that we will choose some one that is not likely or capable of finishing the job.

Every business is unique and establishing one set of standards for determining who to do business with would be impossible but there are some common criteria that we can use to make the selection process easier.

Track Record: Does the business have a good track record? Has it done similar jobs successfully in the past? Have these jobs been done on time and with in budget?

Qualifications: Is the staff qualified to do the job? Can the job be completed with a reasonable amount of information provided by the customer?

Service: Is on going service and support available? If you need assistance will it be available with in a reasonable time and for a reasonable price?

Honesty: Do they keep their word? This may seem old fashioned to some but I want to know that the people I do business with will do what they say they will do.
These simple criteria are necessary to assure that the job will be done properly, on time and with in the allotted budget. What else can we ask for?
ivee Sleek

The ivee Sleek claims to be the first voice activated assistant for the home. The device functions as an alarm clock but it also accepts commands and can interface with other smart devices around your home. Items such as thermostats, coffee makers, lights and other smart devices.

The real genius behind the device is the voice technology that boasts 100% recognition and doesn't need to be trained.

Say, "Hello Ivee" and the device responds by asking for a command. An online dashboard allows you to connect to other smart devices and use your voice to send commands. 

The  ivee Sleek is supposed to begin shipping in October 2013 although their website still says Preorder as of this writing.


Petersen Mfg. Co. Inc.  has added Mobile access and features their product catalog. 

PowerWash USA has a new website including mobile access. Find a PowerWash USA location near you.
