I was recently brought on to the Xybix team in August of 2014. Xybix has the coolest products (the customers love them!), the leadership is competitive and is very forward thinking, and I’m excited to help lead the sales team to new levels of success. I'm a competitive person who loves having fun with friends. I grew up in Nebraska (farm kid & a Husker!), I married when I was 20, worked for my father's company, and then moved to Waxahachie TX to go to college for a leadership degree (as a Youth Pastor). Later, I lived in Austin, TX then Denver, CO (in '88). I lost my wife and 2-yr old daughter in 1991, leaving me with my son. I later remarried (Stephanie) and we have 4 kids; Josh (29), Bri (20), Luc (17), and Kate (7 - our wonderful adopted daughter from China). I enjoy anything to do with water (scuba, fishing, skiing and swimming) and I love good stories (movies, series, or books). I enjoy home improvements and love to use my creative and problem-solving skills in a variety of sales, marketing, leadership, and business settings. I also love movies or mini-series (all Marvel movies and of course favorite movie of all time is “Tombstone”. My TV series favs are; Game of Thrones, Justified, Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Dexter, Merlin, and Arrow)

Oh midcentury modern, why do you have to look so cool and yet be so uncomfortable? The 1950s-era chic has been back for the last five years or so, and it’s starting to infiltrate offices. Our clients are starting to ask for lean, rectangular desks for reasons of both form and function. They believe the horizontal lines look more contemporary, and they think they can fit more desks in a room. What they’re not thinking about is comfort.

The Core Truth: Let’s Talk About Panel Systems (NEW VIDEO)

Posted by Doug Herman on May 12, 2020 3:23:01 PM

 

 

Panel Systems that Make Sense

When customers purchase console furniture, it often includes a discussion about panel systems. If you speak with a variety of vendors, you will certainly get a variety of panel solutions as well. I’ll share with you what is needed from panel systems (or “core systems”) so that you end up with the most efficient option.

Does Panel Size Matter?

Some manufacturers propose that the wider the core is, the more advantageous it will be, as you will be able to fit more cabling or computers within the core. That may be true. The benefit hinges on how you’re running power and data to your workstation and what access you need to those data lines or the computers.

If I said, “Your employees need an ergonomically correct workplace," you may bristle. But if I said, "Your employees will be more comfortable and more productive, and they’ll likely complain less,” I’ll bet your ears just perked up.

Ergonomics is the critical component here. Not only is does it provide a workplace standard, but it also sends a message to your team that you care.
