Today’s team member we would like to introduce is a true industry professional and one of the nicest people you’ll meet. He’s Andy Rye, one of our great trainers. Andy has been with CenterEdge for over four years but worked for our sister company, Palace Pointe, for nearly 15 before that as the Director of Operations. To say that he is an expert at the software would be an understatement since he was one of the very first clients! His industry expertise coupled with his software knowledge make him a terrific fit for working with new and existing clients learning the software. So, please allow us to introduce Andy Rye.
Meet Senior Product Owner, Rick Smith. Rick has been with us for four years now, and has seen tremendous growth at CenterEdge and with our clients. Though he has worn many hats, as a product owner he says he enjoys “being in the position to help shape the product” for our clients.
We are so excited about all the positive feedback we have gotten in response to our new Client Success Initiative, so thank you to all who have reached out! We are always looking to improve. We have heard that you would like the opportunity to get to know us a little better, and to make that happen, we’d like to introduce the CenterEdge Role Call where we’ll introduce different team members from time to time.
With that in mind, please allow us to introduce one of our super support technicians, Spencer Faulkner.
Spencer’s been at CenterEdge for almost a year now and came to us after 12 years in the photo industry doing mechanical and technical support for Kodak. He now provides an ‘always smiling’ approach to solving our clients’ questions and challenges. Here are a couple of things he had to say:
Birthday Season is upon us! For a lot of our clients the new year means lots of parents searching around town frantically trying to find a location for their child’s birthday party. It’s the only time their little darling gets to be 7, or 10, or 16 and they want to get it right. Does your facility have a birthday experience that will make a child’s birthday one they’ll be talking about for years to come?
