Sometimes I need to take a breath and look at how far we’ve come. The list of names here at Simplex-IT seems to be growing by leaps and bounds. You’ll see a couple of new faces (and a returning one) in the eNewsletter for this month. But there are a couple other ones we decided to save until next month.
“Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so." Douglas Adams, author of “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy”.
If this were a week or two from now I would be crowing about the new faces that were joining Simplex-IT. Some joining because of employment.
Woof. In the 10 years that Simplex-IT, I think there was one time we were hiring two people at the same time. And I think it was an intern and a tech position (if memory serves).
So, what’s going on now (starting with hiring):
Adding a new Sales Person position.
Ok, the Q1 goals worked out pretty well, so here comes Q2. It helped us internally focus on making sure we were making progress on the things we decided were important, and it gave us a nice conversation with our customers (and, oddly, our competitors) as to what we’re up to.
Simplex-IT, located in Stow, Ohio, has an exciting career opportunity for a highly motivated Sales Person who is ready to move ahead working with a somewhat unorthodox but very successful company in a progressive industry. We are focused on helping our small to medium business clients succeed by understanding their unique Information Technology requirements and developing a relationship with Simplex-IT to care for their IT needs.
There’s no question that the integration of devices into the internet is one of the hottest uses of technology – termed “Internet of Things”, or IoT – that’s around today. Cars, refrigerators, window shades, furnaces, even toilets, are all being promoted with features that allow control and monitoring from anywhere, thanks to internet connections, mobile apps, and web portals.
We’re growing, and looking for a Microsoft IT Technician to add to our existing group. This role would suit outstanding current Microsoft Engineers (this is a mid-level position) working with Managed Services or Cloud solutions.

Back in January (click here) I put together a list of goals for Simplex-IT to achieve in Q1 of 2018. To be honest, I got a lot of positive feedback both internally and externally. It really helped us focus on our tasks at hand, and I received several compliments from customers who liked to know what we were looking to do.
Sheesh, it just doesn’t end. Yeah, I know that’s a good thing. But still, an occasional slowdown would be nice. On second thought…nah.
So I’m writing this Thursday morning (March 1st) at around 7am. Normally I try to write this the night before, but I was out speaking to a great group, the Lorain County Manufacturing Council.
You may have heard of Microsoft. They’re pretty big in the IT world. Ok, so they might not be the everything to everyone that they were around 1995-2000, but they’re still one of the biggest players in IT, especially from the corporate perspective.
