DAX Update

We Upgraded!  February of this year, we sent out an announcement to all our valued customers stating Quoizel would be implementing a new computer system to enhance operating efficiencies to enable Quoizel to better meet its customer’s needs.

We are thrilled to say that we have successfully completed Phase 1, which included deploying MicroSoft Dynamics AX 2009 to ship and invoice in a timely manner and continue to serve our customers.  Currently, Quoizel is in Phase 2 of the project which is to continue setup of the new functionality for additional system benefits and enable us to fine-tune the processes.

Quoizel’s, Director of Online Retail Sales, Michael Van Derlofske was featured in an Enlightenment Magazine article on the American Lighting Association‘s Young Executives under 40 Group. Michael, who started with Quoizel in 2001, is quoted as saying:

“As the Director of Online Retail Sales for Quoizel Lighting, I appreciate platform the ‘YE’ provides.  It offers an opportunity to casually meet with younger, talented counterparts. Today’s consumers shop with no boundaries, forcing our industry to meet new consumer expectations. Most solutions will generate from the younger generation with the guidance and experience of our lighting veterans.”

Inspirational Lighting at the London 2012 Olympics

Creative and innovative lighting is highlighted at the London 2012 Olympics. One sports reporter, David Woods of the Indianapolis Star, in awe, looked up from his computer to see the stunningly lit stadium and Tweeted the beautiful image above.

The stadium is not the only Olympics-related structure with innovative lighting. London Bridge is lit by a high-tech GE system “designed to enhance its architectural features and replace static lights with bulbs that can vary in intensity and colour”, GE states. The lighting system was engineered to be relatively energy-efficient. The LED floodlights employed will be reused after the games.
