ODOT Headquarters

ODOT Headquarters in Columbus, OH

We visited Columbus last week to take part in ODOT’s search for transit scheduling and dispatching software. The Ohio Department of Transportation invited 8 firms to present their software and services to prospective rural transit systems within Ohio. It was a fun day interacting with competitors, prospects and customers alike. We even got to chat with our current clients at SCAT (Tiffin, OH) and Horizons (Dover, OH)!

We appreciated being part of the event and are looking forward to seeing everyone at the Ohio Public Transit Association’s Annual Conference in April!

Starting 2015 with a bang

14 January

Brett and Kyle hit the road to start the new year.  Our primary purpose was to upgrade Georgetown Transportation in Jenison, Michigan to our latest version and train them. They have been using ParaPlan since 2008 and were our final customer to upgrade from the old Microsoft Access version. They now love the new web-based system and experience.

We also spent time at Resource Transportation and Life EMS in Grand Rapids. We then took our very first clients to dinner as well! Kathy and her gang have been using ParaPlan since 2000 at the American Red Cross of Greater Grand Rapids and it was great spending some time with them. After Michigan, Kyle and Brett headed down to see Transpo Access in South Bend, Indiana before catching a snowy plane home.

It was great seeing some old friends to start off the new year 🙂

Google features EnGraph in 2013 Economic Report

18 July

Kyle 2013 ks

This week, Google released their 2013 Economic Report and EnGraph was highlighted as a featured business in Kansas! Google products, especially Google AdWords, have been a huge part of our recent growth. We really enjoyed working with Wendy at Google during this process and couldn’t be happier with the final result.

As a bonus, Lenexa (the city of our headquarters) was chosen as 2013 eCity. We are proud to be part of the strongest online business community in Kansas.

EnGraph is in good company with some really neat businesses also featured in this report from other states. Dayton Children’s Hospital in Ohio and University of Sioux Falls in South Dakota were also highlighted. AmpleHarvest.org from New Jersey is working to supply food pantries with local produce. Lyman Orchards from Connecticut is the twelfth-oldest family owned business in the US (since 1741).

We are proud to be part of this group and we look forward to working with Google for a very long time.
