Employee Spotlight: Joel Baker

|

It's not surprising to find coders, support techs, and sales folks at a modern software company. But at a la mode, we have another special employee who makes it his mission to know appraising inside and out — from day-to-day challenges to big-picture ideas.

Joel Baker is our VP of Appraiser Advocacy, a role he treats with both enthusiasm and integrity. His job is to understand our customers and their needs, and he's one of the reasons our software stands out from the competition. Joel keeps up with social media, attends conferences, and teaches appraisers of all skill levels how to work more efficiently. Plus, he works behind the scenes with our developers to make sure appraisers are well-served by the products we make.

From floppy disks to cloud technology: Dave Affleck's journey with a la mode

|

 Thinking about the early days of a la mode brings to mind nostalgic memories – software on floppy disks, hefty user manuals, big boxy white computers…

The technology seems archaic now, but at the time it was cutting edge.

Dave Affleck, the man, the myth, the legend was one of the founding members of a la mode to get down and dirty with this top-of-the-line technology. He hopped on the a la mode train back in 1991, and he’s been riding along for the adventure ever since. In fact, he’s been with the company longer than any other employee. 

Make minor edits and review changes — all without opening your report

|

It sounds too good to be true.  How much time could you save if you didn't have to open your report just to double-check a field entry or print a page?  Even better:  What if you didn't have to unsign your report to make a minor edit to your invoice?  With TOTAL, it's possible!

Employee Spotlight: Heather Huskinson

|

Like appraising, the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineer, and Math) industry is dominated by men, which is why our next Employee Spotlight pick is extra special.

Heather started at a la mode as a support technician in 2013.  It was obvious she had a knack for solving problems, so our QA department snatched her up so she could test updates before they were released.  After a couple of years of doing some good ol' quality assurance, she moved over to developing our desktop formfiller, TOTAL — which is no small task.
