All Single Source employees fill out a questionnaire about their favorite things that we use to make a “name plate.” Check out Chris’s name plate below, along with his answers about working at Single Source!
What’s your favorite part of your job?
Investigating process issues that customers are having and solving them within ISM and Syteline.
What’s your philosophy regarding your approach to your work?
No J.E.L.L.Y. I learned this from one of my first bosses. It reminds me to look for a different way to do things. JELLY stands for Just Exactly Like Last Year. Don’t do things Just Exactly Like Last Year.
What’s the most important career lesson you’ve learned?
No one has all the answers. Be humble. You have to know when to stop trying to solve a problem and when to ask for help.
Any cool client moments that stick out in your mind?
I was very gratified to see our consignment functionality which we developed as an add-on to ISM come to fruition. It’s great when you see product design and your vision actually go live at a customer site. Since my kids are grown up, it’s like my software baby.
