Welcome to the September edition of Striker Systems News & Events. 
Striker Systems Celebrates 25th Anniversary
Twenty-five years ago Striker Systems was founded as a small engineering and consulting firm.  Our focus quickly expanded to include CAD/CAM software sales and systems integration.  This evolved into software development, and within a few years Striker Systems was firmly established as a leader in the sheet metal CAD/CAM and nesting software industry.
As we reflect on this milestone we can identify many contributing factors to our success and longevity; however, there is one overriding constant.  It is you, our customer.  It is through your commitment and trust that Striker Systems has not only survived, but excelled, in an industry that has seen so many come and go.  And for this we extend our sincere thanks.  Your support is greatly appreciated.

Striker Productivity Classes a Hit

As an additional benefit of our Technology Assurance Program, we recently began offering Striker Productivity Classes free to Technology Assurance Program members.  These one-day classes are designed for existing Striker Systems software users who want to maximize their productivity.  Interest in the Striker Productivity Classes has been tremendous, with all of the initial classes quickly filling up.  Additional classes are being scheduled, so if you're on a waiting list we will contact you with space availability.

If you are a Technology Assurance Program member and you would like to learn more about the Striker Productivity Classes, visit the following link or call Nancy Vandewalker at 800-950-7862 ext 206.

If you are not a Technology Assurance Program member and you would like to learn more about the benefits of this program, call Karen Harper at 800-950-7862 ext 203.
Holiday Schedule

Striker Systems will be closed Monday, September 6th in observance of the Labor Day holiday.  We will resume regular business hours on Tuesday, September 7th. 

Tech Tips

Changing the Company Logo in SS-Nest Reports

Many SS-Nest users utilize the SS-Nest Report module accessible through the Nest Wizard interface.  It provides a variety of standard templates offering enhanced layout graphics and detailed nesting information.  If you're one that relies on these advanced nest reports, you may have noticed the generic "company logo" image in the upper left corner of the report.   This generic image is easily replaced with your own corporate logo.  The image that is displayed is the "logo.gif" file found in the STRIKER SHARED folder.  The location of this folder is C:\PROGRAM FILES\COMMON FILES\STRIKER SHARED.  You can take any GIF file that you want, rename the file to "logo.gif" and copy it into Striker Shared folder.  It will now become the image displayed in the SS-Nest reports.  Some resizing of your image may be necessary for the best look and fit with the predefined report layout.  For reference, the generic "company logo" image is 150 x 84.
"Tomorrow is the most important thing in life.  It comes to us at midnight very clean.  It's perfect when it arrives and puts itself in our hands.  It hopes we've learned something from yesterday."
