Meet Our Territory Managers! April Edition

One Wednesday each month we are featuring one of our Territory Managers. This month you have a chance to get to know Sue Emerson, Territory Manager of  Alaska, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming.

Sue enjoys meeting the friendly folks located in the vast West Coast territory that she manages for Spectrum. “Wherever I find myself, I’m always welcomed by amazing people,” she said.

Her customers appreciate that Spectrum is an American brand that produces extremely durable products with outstanding features like smart cable management. “Our mobile device storage and charging carts for Chromebooks, tablets and notebooks are remarkable," said Sue. "We have a cart for almost every device and class size. Our lecterns are also durable like the carts and have a phenomenal cable management system.”

Listening to customers is a business practice that Sue believes makes Spectrum tick. “We listen to our customers and incorporate their ideas into our new products. We want to hear about it if there’s a way to make something better.”

Sue holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration and an associate’s degree in materials management. Before joining Spectrum, she worked for Marshfield Clinic. Outside of work, Sue likes to spend quality time with family and friends in her hometown of Chippewa Falls and kick back at the cabin in northern Wisconsin.

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…
