There is so much ALPHA news to share and celebrate: Two of our employees just celebrated their tenth anniversaries with the company (a tremendous milestone). We continue to give back to the community by taking part in rewarding service programs. And we’re coming off another amazing sales kickoff for Lenovo. Looks like it’s going to be a hot summer at ALPHA!

 
Lenovo IdeaPad® Yoga and Twist Pocket Guide
The Lenovo IdeaPad® Yoga and ThinkPad® Twist are convertible devices. That means they can easily shift from Laptop to Tablet to Stand and Tent modes. So it made perfect sense to develop shape-shifting sales training materials. Our guides folded and flipped from an informative brochure to a wallet-sized business card. The sales team loved that we brought the benefit to life with originality.
     
March Networks March Madness
Each year, March Networks does a partner appreciation direct mail campaign centered on the men’s college basketball tournament. This year’s program, dubbed ‘Madness 2013,’ included a March Networks sports duffel, personalized with the customer’s name, a partner-branded water bottle and more.
   
Lenovo IdeaCentre® Erazer
Lenovo, along with Intel®, approached us to create launch concepts for the new Erazer extreme gaming desktop. With Erazer’s Core™ i7 processor, all the graphics, speed and performance that gamers need are engineered into the machine. With that notion, we developed the “built-in” concept—which included online, in-store and experiential executions.
 
We are thrilled to be working with WebAssign, a unique educational software company, based on the Centennial Campus of NC State University. WebAssign is a robust online homework and testing management system for high school and college. To start, we will help them establish corporate brand guidelines, templates, logos, and more. Welcome to the ALPHA family! WebAssign is a new client

Ten years later, they continue to bring ideas, energy and enthusiasm into the office every day. Here’s to the next ten years.” Jocelyn and Casey recently attended a weeklong boot camp developed by the Project Management Institute (PMI).

These accomplishments will benefit both of them in their careers and add even more value to our clients’ businesses.
