Red Wing Software - Notes from the President Ken Hilton

Ken Hilton - President Red Wing Software

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the people affected by Hurricane Harvey. Everyone I know has a connection to someone living in the affected area, and is reaching out in some way to help.

On a brighter (or should I say darker) note, virtually everyone in the United States was able to experience the recent solar eclipse at some level. A few people in our office ventured out of their home states to travel to a part of the country that was in the area of “totality”, where the sun was totally blocked by the moon for over two minutes. Certainly, a sight to see.

Now, it’s time to look around and determine if your company is feeling the effects of an eclipse. Are there people that are being kept in the dark about business information that would help them help the company grow? While not necessarily all information about a company can be made public, there are probably things unintentionally not shared that could improve processes and expose new ideas.

On an individual level, are there bright people in the organization that are being overshadowed, and if given the opportunity to shine, could eventually become stars? (Is that too many puns for one sentence?)

Take a look around, and ensure your company is not experiencing a perpetual eclipse.

- Ken Hilton, President



Red Wing Software - Notes from the President Ken Hilton

Ken Hilton - President Red Wing Software

I’ve mentioned before in this newsletter how important I think it is to regularly get continuing education. As I write this, I am preparing to make a trip to New York to attend a financial standards meeting, where I get updated annually on changes in recordkeeping and reporting recommendations. I typically attend three or four similar meetings each year to stay current and/or learn new things.

At Red Wing Software, we offer a number of ways to stay current on changes to our software, or just learn how to better use the features that may be new to you. In July, we had two three-day seminars in our Red Wing office attended by a number of new customers as well as people wanting a refresher or were ready to use more functionality they hadn’t previously taken advantage of.

In addition to our classroom training sessions, we offer on-site consulting (as do a number of our partners), over-the-phone one-on-one training, educational videos, and most recently, live web sessions. All of these options are listed on our web site, so you can take advantage of whatever method works best for you. And, of course, your individual questions can be answered immediately by calling our friendly and knowledgeable support staff.

Whatever option you choose for continuing education, whether on Red Wing Software products or other aspects of your business, you should set aside some time to stay current with your business tools and learn new ways to make your business better.




Behind the Scenes - August 2017

  • Katrina’s (Administrative Assistant) daughter, Kyla, enjoyed a boat and beach outing.
  • Connie’s (Technical Writer) daughter, Jenna, traveled with her Spanish class to Costa Rica for a trip of a lifetime! They stayed with host families to be immersed in their culture and practice speaking Spanish, learned Costa Rican cooking and dancing, visited the beach, mountains, and pineapple, chocolate, and coffee plantations. Jenna thought the best part of all was zip lining over the rain forest.
  • Marlene (Technical Support Specialist) and Dick (Development) and family of four married daughters and 12 grandchildren had a great family vacation in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Our cabin overlooked the majestic Smoky Mountains. Hiking trips with steep inclines were an adventure with 12 kids, but playing at Laurel Falls was an awesome reward at the end. The family picture was taken in front of Laurel Falls. No one was ready to leave the Smokies!
  • Stephanie (Marketing) and her boyfriend Glenn took a trip to Europe, where they stayed in Vienna and Bratislava, and took a tour of Slovakian castles. It was a trip of a lifetime!
