COMPANY TRUCKS

Some bad news. We have a Tacoma that now sounds like a race truck. We had another catalytic converter stolen on one of the Tacoma trucks. That is two now. This one from the property at 4210. We are storing our spare trucks off in a building site now.


NEXT WEEK

IT Summit in Georgetown next week. Jon Pennington, Brian Manibo and Jaime Pena will be in attendance from the Houston office.

OLD STUFF

This week Joel Orellana and Greg Propps made a walk through at Tyler County Hospital in Woodville, TX.

The ER was added in 2004 and has a Responder IV.

The Hospital was built in 1950 and still has the ORIGINAL Edwards Nurse Call in the Med/Surg. Unit.


Edwards Nurse Call Circa 1950


We found what may be the oldest Nurse’s Station Console still in continuous operation!

The little box you see at the lower left was the bell and striker doorbell apparatus that dinged only once when activated.

SECOND WEDNESDAY BI-MONTHLY ROUNDTABLE COFFEE

Wednesday July 13 @ 4:00 PM

We have Justin Bailey as our roundtable guest this month. Justin is the head of our R&D team and works with our CTO Jeff Richard. The location for our gathering is the Command Central conference room located at 4210 South Drive.


This is a slightly different format for this month as we will be looking into some new visualization tools. Justin will be discussing some possible new applications on data visualization using Business Intelligence software such as Tableau, Looker Domo, and Clic Data.


Where will this lead? Come join the discussion and find out.

The next bi-monthly roundtable coffee will be at noon on September 14.
