This is the software company version of having every job order filled:

Manpower, Me and Salesforce Automation

In April of 1974 at the age of 16 I sat down at my Dad’s business with a Manpower sales training manual and started making calls.

Striving for a Great Customer Experience Every Time

Getting the customer experience right has never been an easy thing in the innovation business, especially when you double in size every four years as we have done since 1997.   It’s not just that the support issues get more complex as technology intertwines itself into every aspect of business, it’s also a simple question of scale. Ten years ago I was able to literally man the support desk on my …

Tempworks CEO Reflects on 2013 and More

Our CEO, David Dourgarian, sent out an internal email this last week with a recap of 2013 and plans for helping our customers win in 2014 and beyond. I can’t print the whole thing, but I did grab one of his paragraphs and italicized it at the bottom of this post.  David notes how the staffing business has changed dramatically in the last five years, going from what was arguably …

Our Client ILMG and the Future of Just-In-Time Labor

Staffing Talk’s David Gee has a post up about just-in-time labor which features our client ILMG and describes elements of our time and attendance product line. It’s a thrill to be part of the transformation ILMG is providing its manufacturing clients and to see how the ubiquitous internet is changing our most labor-intensive processes. Last night I had the chance to sit down with Kevin Prow of Tempworks who developed our …
