STronger Than Ever

STronger Than Ever

In this unprecedented time, as we continue to maintain social distancing and safe practices within the workplace, it has become increasingly important that we remain connected, even when we are apart, to keep business moving. One of the critical pieces of maintaining operations during the pandemic is the ability to work from home. Swiff-Train Company has an all-star team that has made working from home something that is not only a possibility, but a reality. We interviewed Greg Altman, IT Infrastructure Manager at Swiff-Train, about how he has enabled Swiff-Train to navigate the ‘New Normal.’

Key Points:

Currently, many of our employees are working from their homes instead of in the office. We spoke with Greg about the movement toward the remote workspace, and he said,

“Thanks to the conversations we started last fall with Inflow Communications and Dell EMC, we were several steps toward a mobile workforce. The COVID-19 pandemic just accelerated our plans. From a personal view – Swiff-Train Company is a tough bunch. Our teams have pivoted and adapted where needed to keep things rolling. I’m proud of them all!”

 

How we’re doing it well:

Greg and his team have mobilized the workforce by moving the phone system to a cloud service through RingCentral. They have mobilized Call Center agents by equipping them with laptops and Bluetooth headsets which allows them to work from anywhere, which is a capability that has also extended to our customer facing office workers.

This ensures that no matter where we are working, whether it is in the office or from our home offices, we are successfully able to maintain the level of consistency and service that our customers have come to expect.

Greg finishes by saying “Improving Organizational Agility through Technical Innovation  is our teams’ motto for 2020,” and we are excited to grow moving forward.

 

 

The Creativity and Technology of Vinyl Flooring

The Creativity and Technology of Vinyl Flooring

In her article Vinyl Visuals, Kacey Perinelli from Floor Covering Weekly looks at the continued growth in technology behind Luxury Vinyl Flooring, and how these advancements, such as embossing and high definition printing, have pushed the category forward to become a major competitor in the flooring marketplace. Our own Lindsey Nisbet, Director of Marketing at EarthWerks®, is interviewed.  

 

Key Points:

With technological advancements, Luxury Vinyl Tile and Plank are able to look very similar to their hardwood and tile counterparts. Advancements in printing enable these products to be on the forefront of creativity, as companies expand upon their collections.

Lindsey Nisbet was quoted to say, “As we develop our new collections, it’s great to see how vinyl plank has advanced over the years. We’ve gone from a ‘sea of brown’ to an exciting, fresh line of grey tones, whitewash, multi-plank, unlimited shades of everything in between, and beyond.”

Key Points:

The NAHB reports that there has been an upwards increase in both single-family and multi-family permits, denoting that future building activity is on an upwards path.
