Turn Your Smartphone into a Preparedness Tool
This spring’s devastating tornadoes and floods send the reminder
that severe weather can have real and unpredictable consequences that leave
you, your family, and your business at serious risk.

To help you
prepare for severe weather and emergencies of any kind, check out
free preparedness mobile apps
from the Red Cross. The apps have
everything you need to know to plan, prepare and respond, and an audible

I learned a lesson in customer service this
past week. I was stopped at a red light and
then Bang! The person behind me was not
paying attention as he rear ended my car.
Since my car was only 6 months old, I was a
little upset to say the least.

After returning to my office, I contacted his
insurance company. Wow, I was impressed with
how they treated me and found myself almost
back to normal. They are expediting my
repairs and getting me a loaner car for me to use.

The lesson that I learned is that good
customer service can make a bad situation
better. I hope that our team here at
Tekmanagement provides you with the
excellent service that you deserve. I am
always looking for feedback on how we are
doing, so please

send me an email
with your experiences!

Have a fantastic day!

If that’s true, then how employees are treated, or perceive
themselves to be treated, by a supervisor is central to the
success of any operation.

Read Receipts in Outlook 2010 and 2013


When sending out urgent or important email correspondence
it may come in handy to utilize the delivery and read receipt
function in Microsoft Outlook. It does help to mark your email
as high importance or choose a subject line with an eye catching
and attention seeking sentence or phrase, but sometimes you
need to know that an important message has been received. Delivery
and read receipts are perfect for this.
