OO’s Annual Vendor Day & Crawfish Boil Huge Successes

Last week we held our second annual vendor partner event, where individuals from eight partner companies had the opportunity to meet one-on-one with the Open Options sales and marketing teams. Best sales practices, new product information, and company roadmaps were some of the common points across presentations, but nothing was off limits. We want to thank the following vendor partners for their participation to make this event a great success:

Steve Lucas – Mercury Security
Shep Sheppard – Farpointe Data
Frank Stark – HID
Leroy Garza – ASSA ABLOY
Rob Lydic and Melissa Stenger – ISONAS
Dan Rothrock – Zenitel
Chad Palmquist and Sean Ellison – Milestone Systems
Derek Ommert – Allegion

On Friday afternoon, we held our annual crawfish boil and fish fry. Everyone had a great time enjoying fresh food, cold drinks, and live music from the Jet Poets. Once again, we held a silent auction that benefited Ronald McDonald House charities – this year we raised nearly $1,500! A big thanks to those who placed a bid and to the following companies for donating auction items:

Farpointe Data
Milestone Systems
American Solutions for Business
Addison Cigar Co.
Frisco RoughRiders
The Ginger Man – Dallas
Lehigh Hanson
Peticolas Brewing Company
the Skellig
Texas Roadhouse – The Colony

We want to thank everyone who came out, and we’ll see you next year!
