Blair Anderson – Shawnee Heights Unified School District 450

The data center is no place to be siloed. Not if technology directors want to gauge the impact of their initiatives in the overall scheme of things. For that reason and more, you’ll likely find Blair Anderson and his team regularly visiting the classrooms of Shawnee Heights Unified School District 450 in northeast Kansas. The […]

Andrew Dahman – Techficient

By offering protection in times of tragedy or helping fund retirement, life insurance and annuities can make a crucial financial difference for individuals and families. Yet getting the right policy or annuity can be far more complicated than insuring a vehicle or a home, with 30 percent of applicants for life insurance being rejected due […]

Rob Dickson – Wichita Public Schools

In one classroom, students have traded pens and notebooks for the latest tablets and laptops, opening a new world of learning—one where online content is easily updated and lessons can be learned at home. Just across town, students share devices that are outdated and sparse. When the final bell rings, the devices remain in school, […]

Jason Inman – Elkhart Community Schools

On his first day at Elkhart Community Schools (ECS), Jason Inman remembers walking into the IT Department and seeing everyone running around answering phones and filling out service tickets nonstop. Staff was surely busy, but it wasn’t exactly what the new director of technology services envisioned as best practices for taking technology and educational programming […]

James Wellman – Blanchard Valley Health System

Your child is feeling sick. Perhaps there’s a fever, coughing, maybe a runny nose or sore throat, too. Here’s where your cell phone can really come in handy, and not just to call your physician. Turn on its flashlight, have your child open their mouth. Shine the light, take a picture and text it to […]

Kirk Hay – Jack Cooper Transport & Logistics

In some ways, loading a transport truck with a variety of vehicles is like playing a colossal game of Tetris, as it’s quickly determined the best way to pack a load. Such is the task for CIO Kirk Hay at Jack Cooper Transport Company in Kansas City, North America’s largest automotive transportation fleet and logistics […]

Jim Blodgett – Middleton-Cross Plains Area Schools

It’s important for team members in any organization: Be on the same page. Pull in the same direction. But when you’re managing information services for a big, ethnically and economically diverse school district with 7,500 students in 13 facilities across eight municipalities, “being on the same page” is a challenge. It’s hard enough to even […]

Colin Joynt – Kite Realty

During a wide-ranging interview with Toggle earlier this fall, Colin Joynt fielded dozens of questions relating to his role as senior vice president of IT for Indianapolis-based Kite Realty: about the gamut-running career that preceded his 2015 arrival and about the bevy of big-ticket initiatives he and his team are now spearheading. There was one […]

Forrest Wagner – The Staffmark Group

There’s work to be done, and with unemployment at a 50-year low, employers are scrambling to find people to fill jobs. But going to work is not what it was 50 years ago. Careers with one employer are a rarity, and a growing number of people—and employers—prefer remote work and short-term commitments. So while not […]

Eddie Etsey – University of Iowa Athletics

It’s game day at the University of Iowa and the Hawkeyes are nationally ranked and primed to play at Kinnick Stadium. The smell of grilled burgers fills the air as fans fill the parking lot in their black and gold gear, lounging outside RVs or tossing a football around before kickoff. University of Iowa Athletics […]

Testimonials

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features. It is without reservation that I highly recommend other businesses partnering with this publication and I look forward to an opportunity to work with them again in the future.
— Katie Patterson, Director of Marketing, Alliant Technologies
