International SuperTech Day is June 29, 2018

A special day commemorating door systems technicians has been set for June 29, 2018, as part of an international campaign to recognize and honor professionals in the field.  Door companies will be encouraged to treat door technicians to some form of activity that will serve as a reminder that they are the key to maintaining profitability and customer satisfaction in all aspects of the trade.

SuperTech Day was proposed and endorsed during the 2008 Door Industry Congress produced by IDA.  The event was successfully conducted for the first time in June 2008.

“This is a great way for us to expedite the growing recognition that our installers and service technicians are the backbone of our industry,” said IDA President Randy Oliver.  “We envision this event as expanding to promote the importance of our products to the general public, and to establish that professionals are best qualified to work with these products in a way that maximizes security, public safety and customer satisfaction.”

IDEA President Joe Chisholm echoed those remarks.  “The campaign to recognize industry professionalism has consistently gained momentum in recent years,” Chisholm said.  “International SuperTech Day is a logical next step in this emerging trend.”

The event’s purpose is to recognize door and access systems technicians around the world for their contributions to the success of door dealerships, and to the value and professionalism of the industry.  Dealers will be encouraged to take part by paying tribute to their crews.

Please send us photos and descriptions of what your company did to celebrate SuperTech Day. Here are a few things to consider that can greatly enhance the quality of your photos and project descriptions: If you are using a point-and-shoot digital camera, select the highest resolution possible. If weather permits, take your photo outside during daylight hours or select an inside area that is well lit. Group shots in front of hung banners or company signs are great. Take several photos of each pose.

As you transfer your digital photos from your camera to your computer, be sure to save them in one of the most common formats: JPEG (.jpg), TIFF (.tiff) or .RAW (.raw). Name the photos to reflect your company’s name, for example: JonesDoorsJasperCO.jpg. Once you save them, review them and send in the best two or three photos.

When you report your activities, please remember to send us the 5 W’s: who, what, where, when, why and how. Make note of any special information – such as who has been with you the longest, etc. Thanks in advance for sending us your celebration information. We will post the information on the website and include photos in upcoming issue of ID&OI.

There are several ways to send us your photos and information:
