I am sitting at my desk today trying to get motivated to work… Custom Information Services (CIS) is having a ‘team building’ event this afternoon which is code word for a Holiday Party. We are closing at 12:30 and heading out to Dave and Busters at the Highlands in Arlington Texas. So you can imagine that we are all hustling to get last minute work done and hit the road. I of course need an article to publish for December. I am a bit behind on marketing activities due to busy sales activities. I will tell you I would much prefer to be busy in sales than in marketing.

I also am so glad to have a job and work with some awesome people. It really is a pleasure to come to work each day and spend time with a team that truly cares about the customer and each other.

It is also common to be grabbing coffee in the break room and have staff discussing how to solve a problem with the least amount of costs to the customer! I know that may be hard to believe, but we are always looking at how we can save our customers money.
We have accomplished several new things this year within our company:
