Meet Our Territory Managers! May Edition

One Wednesday each month we are featuring one of our Territory Managers. This month we're introducing you to Kevin Keith, Territory Manager of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska.

Kevin Keith is proud to share his hometown with the 2015 World Series Champion Kansas City Royals. As a territory sales manager for Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska, his region also stakes claim to the discovery of diamonds in Pike County, Arkansas and the tallest waterslide in the world at Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Kansas City, Kansas. Kevin joins the accolades with his barbecue sauce recipe along with being a certified barbecue judge.

Life is pretty exciting for this former paratrooper of the 82nd Airborne who’s also passionate about Spectrum. “Our entire product line is high quality and designed and manufactured in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin,” he said. “Our management team continually strives to offer customers innovative solutions.”

His market is extremely attracted to the durability of Spectrum products. “My longstanding customers continue to be delighted with the Spectrum brand.”

With a highly responsive product line, Kevin is filling a niche with Spectrum’s new collaboration tables that appeal to both K-12 schools and higher education institutions.

When he’s not educating customers about innovative furniture, Kevin can be found with his wife of 28 years, their two daughters, and three big dogs and two cats.

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.

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.

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:
