On the Road Against Hunger
Scott Bidwell, President & COO

I’m going to stray from my usual mental meanderings to talk about an important opportunity worthy of the attention of every PRISM International member. PRISM Gives is working hard to reach its goal of $25,000 to benefit “Action Against Hunger,” and the work they do around the world making sure kids in crisis areas and situations receive food and proper nutrition. To raise funds, PRISM's President Dennis Barnedt and other riders will hit the road on a cross-country motorcycle ride from Florida to California. You can help by sponsoring a rider, by sponsoring the ride itself, or by becoming a corporate sponsor. If you enjoy the open road and have a motorcycle, you're invited to join the ride.

Help ensure the $25,000 goal is reached - and even surpassed. ASI has donated $1,000 to the ride and I challenge PRISM members to visit today and contribute to this charitable cause. You’ll also find full details about the ride, the charity and the people who will be hitting the road against hunger.

You’ve probably heard it said that learning is an ongoing process. This is particularly true when it comes to software. Just when you think you’ve mastered your core tasks, a new update, shortcut or enhancement is released. Users who continue to expand their knowledge gain the most from the software they rely on to effectively run their businesses.

ASI offers many training opportunities for their software users. One of the most popular and well-received is its WebShare online training sessions. These webinars offer step-by-step instruction on the proper usage and latest features offered by the ASI suite of RIM software solutions. Priced at only $49 per connection, WebShare webinars make it easy to offer software training to multiple staff as well. If you haven’t yet taken advantage of this valuable training opportunity, take a moment to review the WebShare schedule below and register you and/or your staff for those that are pertinent to your business.

ASI Attends PRISM Asia Pacific Conference

ASI President & COO Scott Bidwell, along with over 90 other PRISM International members, recently attended the PRISM Asia Pacific Conference held in Bangkok, Thailand. According to PRISM Executive Director Jim Booth, this year’s event featured the largest trade show and exhibition ever held for the Asia Pacific Conference.

Says Scott, “Attending an international event such as this is important – not only from a business perspective, but to expand our knowledge of this industry from a global perspective. We always meet great people who bring new ideas and experiences to the table.”
