an independent consulting firm, has specialized in information
technologies for the engineering, manufacturing, and AEC sectors.
We provide strategic planning, marketing, sales, system integration,
and technical support to IS vendors, Fortune 2,000 companies,
utilities, and state and local governments. DM also provides
technical training, conduct informational seminars, and produces
DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT Magazine. We became renowned for providing
Value Added Resellers and integrators with the highest quality
refurbished scanners and systems. Recently, we began offering
this equipment directly to the end user. Now, we are proud
to add the latest in large format scanning technology and
information systems solutions (that means the new stuff) to
our ever-growing catalog.
Mark Stover is Director of Operations for Document
Management and editor of DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT magazine.
He has more than 20 years of experience in the marketing,
integration and support of EDM, GIS, CAD, Scan/Capture, and
large format imaging systems. Mr. Stover has consulted for
many utility companies, local, state, and federal governments,
and organizations in North America, Europe, Asia, and the
Old Zeke is so old that he doesn't even have a last name. As our
Technical Support Manager, he's probably installed
and serviced more large format scanners and plotters
than anyone else on the planet. He's a bit secretive
about his past, but we do know that he once worked
for the railroads as operator/technician of what
was arguably the world's first facsimile system.
Images were interpreted as a series of coordinates,
transmitted via Morse code, and then manually reassembled
on an X,Y grid pattern. Although not a commercial
success, it did influence a lot of connect-the-dots
children's books and signaled the demise of the
once dominate carrier pigeon technology. Not one
to slack on his abilities, he exploited his experience
on the weekends in the lucrative bingo hall circuit.
Support Manager, Old Zeke.
A tinkerer, he built one of the first diazo machines out
of an old laundry wringer, a railroad lamp, smelling salts,
and some bluing. Aside from some ventures in patent medicines,
he continued along this line of work for many, many years
- until around 1974. Then, during a marathon work binge,
he penned the songs "You're The Saurkraut
On The Hot Dog Of Life", "My
Best Friend Is A Cardboard Box" and "CB
Buff"*, all of which became instant hits.
Things get a little foggy at this point. He remembers
traveling the world and parts of Arizona, getting married
a couple of times (no kids yet, ladies), directing music
videos, and speculating in internet domain names. Alas,
his heart wasn't in it. Or, he was just flat broke. At
any rate, he decided that his one great love was large
format imaging equipment. He works mostly at night, so
we rarely see him. If you happen to run into him, please
tell him that the accounting department is wondering when
he's going to pick up all his paychecks.
