Spectrum Industries Supports The American Cancer Society Relay for Life

Although the Chippewa County Relay for Life official event is July 30th & 31st this year, Spectrum Industries Inc. continues its fundraising efforts during the entire year. Led by Teresa Repaal, cancer support is given throughout the company with seasonal sales of Main St. CafĂ© pies and That’s My Pan items, as well as the ongoing sales of muffins and candy bars. Enthusiastic support is also shown at company-wide cookouts, where employees donate food, time, and money – all to help those diagnosed with cancer to fight and win their battles!Spectrum placed 3rd of 33 teams in raising $110,000 for the 2009 Relay for Life’s walk for cancer, raising $5,269. Their tremendous effort carries on this year under the theme of “Celebrating More Birthdays”. The July 30th & 31st birthday party agenda includes games all night, inflatable rides, presents, cakes, silent auction, food, camping & DJ/music. “Celebrating More Birthdays” means there are more cancer survivors fighting & winning every year. Cancer survivors are the heart & soul of the Relay, and Spectrum will celebrate their achievements while raising money for cancer research to help those in the future. To remember loved ones lost, nothing is more touching than to experience the laps walked in silence during the Luminaria Ceremony, where candles are lit inside personalized bags lining the track.

We would like to thank the American Cancer Society and the Chippewa County Relay for Life for helping to make this event increasingly successful. Spectrum Industries will gladly do our part to offer continuing support to our community.

Quality Products and Customer Service

At Spectrum Industries, we believe that making a quality product matters to our customers. Having products that will outlast their users and are adaptable enough to be reused through multiple technology deployments, is what drives our innovation and desire to constantly strive to surpass our customers' expectations. Simply put, Spectrum furniture is made to last and perform for years.

Larry Lindenauer, territory manager with Spectrum in the New England region believes that product durability is one of Spectrum’s strongest selling points. “When I go to schools, they show me purchases from several years back that are still in great condition.” 
Mark Dotson, territory manager with Spectrum in the Mid-Atlantic region agreed with this sentiment, stating that “it’s wonderful when demonstrating our products to prospects and customers at tradeshows and they say, ‘We love your products,’ or ‘We have been using Spectrum for years.’ It shows that I represent a reputable and highly regarded c…

New Product: Tablet Locker

We’ve been busy and it doesn’t look like we’ll be taking a break soon! Spectrum’s newest product is the InTouch20 Secure Tablet Locker.

We’re taking a good idea and making it smaller! Adding iPad, eReader or other tablet technology to the curriculum? The InTouch20Secure Tablet Locker is the little cousin to the InTouch40 Tablet Cart and is just the thing for the small classroom. The wire management and numbered slots make organization and charging easy. With the optional Synchronizing Kit, apps can be added and the tablets synchronized. Security, charging and syncing all in a small footprint to fit in the small classroom!

You can look to Spectrum for solutions whether you’re in the market for a lectern, desk and tables, or mobile computing storage and charging carts.

First Wiki Launched Today

WikiWikiWeb, the first wiki or user-editable website, was launched on March 25, 1995 and still is a valuable source of information and sharing.
The concept and development of the “Wiki” came from Ward Cunningham in a hope to create a web page that was quickly editable by the users. In Cunningham’s case, it was to establish and promote an exchange of ideas between programmers within his company.

Cunningham originally was going to call his new platform “QuickWeb,” but later he remembered a Honolulu language term for “fast” used by an airport counter employee. The employee told Cunningham to take the Wiki Wiki Shuttle, a shuttle bus line that runs between the airport's terminals. "Wiki Wiki" is a repeating of "wiki", a Hawaiian language word for fast.

From the “Front Page” of the WikiWikiWeb:

The idea of a “Wiki” may seem odd at first, but dive in and explore its links! The “Wiki” is a composition system; it’s a discussion medium; it’s a repository; it’s a mail syst…
