Red Wing Software - Notes from the President Ken Hilton

Ken Hilton - President Red Wing Software

January was a very challenging and successful month for Red Wing Software. As we expected, there was a large number of calls for support as our customers were completing 2017, starting 2018, and processing payroll reports and Federal tax forms. Even with the huge increase in call volume, we continued to maintain a direct call pickup above 90%. For those calls that were posted to our call board, it was rare that subscribers to our Silver and Gold Customer Care Memberships waited over an hour for a return call. There was a great effort by our support staff and several others in our company to minimize the wait time, and provide the best service possible at the busiest time of the year.

With more of our customers wanting to get their software training online, we have decreased the number of live classroom training sessions to six classes in three weeks for 2018. You can view the schedule here: Live Classroom Training.

In addition to our classroom training, we are offering several virtual classes, both live and recorded. You can view those offerings here: Virtual Classroom Training.

Several of our staff members will be at industry trade shows throughout the country. We will have staff at shows in Texas, Kentucky, California, Wisconsin, and Minnesota, and that’s just in the first quarter of 2018. We always appreciate the opportunity to talk to our customers at these shows and hope you can stop by and say “howdy.”

Behind the Scenes - December 2017

  • Matt (Sales Consultant) watched his daughter Lena and the Rosemount High School Marching Band perform in the 2017 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.
  • Roxie (Administrative Assistant) headed up a drop-off location for Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts. Her six-year-old grandsons, Ashton and Ezra, helped carton up some of the over 1,300 boxes received.
  • Connie’s (Technical Writer) family met one of their favorite Minnesota Wild hockey players, Jason Zucker, while attending a hockey game over Thanksgiving break. Connie reluctantly stayed home and watched the game because her daughter, Lindsey, was home from college and went in her place.
  • Red Wing Software stockings were hung with care... Employees were given a stocking to decorate and did a GREAT job.. so creative!
