The weekly recap: October 26 | Spiders and blowtorches

Ah, Halloween. It is upon us. Ghoulish ghosts, creepy jack-o-lanterns, and scary spiders. Who doesn’t love scary spiders?

Ok, I found one guy who clearly doesn’t like them, but first, the news.

Hyland news

  • This week, KYOCERA Document Solutions became an official Hyland partner. This is great news for many reasons. Not only does it expand our local presence in the UK, it also increases our resources to ensure our partner channel delivers the best customer support possible.

The agreement extends the already established and significant relationship between Hyland and KYOCERA in the United States and Japan, where the organization has more than 600 successful OnBase customers and more than 100 dedicated OnBase support staff.

The Hyland Blog

It’s a cool band name, but if you’re starting a project, you need a tangible plan – a list of action items that drive you to achieve your goal. Hope is an important motivator to initiate change, but it doesn’t belong in your project plan. Trust us, we checked. Many times.

  • Women in tech are women on the rise. Here at Hyland, that’s very apparent. As one example, nine of our top executives are distinguished women.

But we’re not stopping there. Our women in networking group recently met and heard from Amy Martin, founder of SheintheCLE.com. In her presentation, Amy talked about important topics like how starting a family might affect a woman’s career and whether or not you really need a Master’s degree to further your career.

  • Hurricane Florence did some major damage to my home state of North Carolina, flooding entire neighborhoods. While I’m 350 miles away from the coast and 2,300 feet above sea level where the hurricane roared ashore, Florence was so strong, it still brought some heavy wind and rain to my community.

That’s why I was thrilled to read how Horry County, North Carolina, is using OnBase – Hyland’s enterprise information platform – in conjunction with ShareBase – our cloud-based secure file sharing tool – to speed disaster-recovery efforts.

Fav thing of the week: Spiders and blowtorches

  • Here’s a scenario: You’re house sitting for your parents, and you discover some spiders. To deal with them, you should:
    1. Scream
    2. Grab a broom
    3. Call your mom and dad
    4. Call 911
    5. Grab a blowtorch

Luckily, no one was hurt, and the damage was minimal. Also, sometimes 1, but mostly 2.

Have a great weekend everyone!
