ECI Conference: We Had a Blast

We had a blast attending this year’s ECI Connect Conference at the beautiful Renaissance Worthington in downtown Forth Worth, Texas. Not only did we make some new friends and exchange ideas about the latest trends in our line of work, but we received an inspirational talk from Jim Morris, the major league pitcher whose actual life-story served as inspiration for the 2002 Hollywood movie, The Rookie. It’s always good to be reminded that one’s biggest dreams are always worth pursuing, no matter what the odds or opposition.

We also got ourselves re-acquainted with an old friend of ours, M1. M1 is the fully integrated manufacturing software program that we use here at StampSource to streamline our manufacturing process from A to Z. It was a full two days’ boot-camp! ECi got our company up to steam on the latest and greatest ways of implementing their product: everything from CRM, to effective quoting, to customization workshops and the latest M1 tips and tricks. In the meantime we re-familiarized ourselves with M1’s business analysis tools, and M1’s integration potential with Avalara and Acsellerate.

All in all, the conference was a massive success. Not only did we come out of ECi Connect fully re-inspired as far as pursuing our dreams, but we left it with the actual hands-on means of making it happen.

And that’s exactly what we plan on doing this next year.

Healthy Home System Provides Your Family a Breath of Fresh Air

Guarding your household from airborne intruders, such as mold, dust, pollen, pet dander, and germs, is essential to the well-being of your family. Field Controls is a leading worldwide supplier of draft, venting, and combustion air technology, and specializes in manufacturing draft controls for oil, gas, and solid fuel applications. This company builds and markets a Healthy Home System, which consists of an air-quality control box that manages various components that, when combined, work 24 hours a day to create a fresh, clean, and pure home atmosphere.

These air-quality components include:

1. A Fresh Air System, which brings clean air into your HVAC system, where it is combined with conditioned air before being discharged throughout your house.
2. A Media Air Cleaner, which traps particles as small as 1.0 micron.
3. UV-Air®, which uses ultraviolet light to zap various aerial invaders.

Field Controls’s Healthy Home System resolves many of the problems associated with most clean-air devices, which only work when the furnace or air conditioning is running. Because Field Controls’s fresh- air system connects with the central system fan, which operates on a fixed schedule, this control box maintains a clean home atmosphere, even when you aren’t heating or cooling your home.

StampSource supplies many of the precision, metal-stamped components that go into this air-quality control box. So, next time you go home, take a deep breath and know that Field Controls, with the help of StampSource, is there to keep your air pure and your family healthy.
