RiteHite.com Updates

New HVLS Fans Application Page (click on the image to the right to see where the new page is located)

Leads from RiteHite.com are on the rise thanks to some adjustments we made in August to our Contact Us and Find-A-Rep functions. Whenever a visitor completes one of our online forms, an email is sent to "info@ritehite.com". These emails are reviewed by several people at Corporate. The majority will be sent/forwarded to the rep (NER, IPS and/or FSR) based on the postal code or country the visitor provides.

When you receive one of these emails it is very important to take action right away. We are finding that people who complete a form online expect a fast turn-around on their request. Consider the fact that they filled out a form as an urgent request for us to contact them.

Always Looking Ahead Brochure (ALA) Success Stories!

From Rich Parks:

Food manufacturer in NY - Prior to jumping into a Dok-Lok van demo, I took a few moments to review the brochure with a group of about eight people. Afterwards we had one new contact who stayed behind to discuss an area of concern. This led us to discuss an additional project for Gatekeepers because he noticed it on our in-plant safety panel. This is typically not a product we would have had an opportunity to discuss during a Dok-Lok demo.

Ohio Steel Fabrication Co. - During an intro call with a new customer and one of our FSRs we planned to introduce them to our PMP program. Starting with the ALA brochure, we reviewed the panels and the Dok-Guardian and the Environmental Separation and Control panel caught the customer's attention. So we launched into a Dok-Guardian module presentation! The visit resulted in Dok-Guardian proposals, shelter repairs and a plant tour to evaluate potential areas for Revolution Fans.

We are hearing great stories like this from the field as they use the new "Always Looking Ahead" brochure and presentation. And, we have taken the brochure to two major shows in August and September and received great feedback on it.
