Parsec Global Summit 2016
On September 13 – 14, 2016, ACE’s Steve Monaghan and Dirk Sweigart attended the Parsec Global Summit at Anaheim Hills Golf Club in Anaheim Hills, CA. The 2016 Global Summit was dedicated to members of the Parsec Partner Program and included partners from every continent except Antarctica. The event featured a series of collaborative discussions focused on the specific goal of making the program more rewarding for its members. Speaking of rewards, Steve and Dirk came home with medals after winning third place in a team building contest! Our thanks go out to Parsec for inviting ACE to participate. We are eagerly anticipating the release of TrakSYS™ X, Parsec’s next-generation MES/MOM software.
25th Anniversary Celebrations: Delaware Valley
On Friday, September 9, 2016, ACE continued the anniversary celebrations with a party at our recently renovated Delaware Valley office. The event was designed as a thank you to our friends, families, customers, and community for their support over the past twenty five years.
ACE’s Steve Adkins and his band, Red River, provided the entertainment for the evening with their unique mix of classic rock and country music. Menu options included New Orleans style snowballs from Cajun-Sno, eclectic street food from Mojo Loco, and, of course, beer. In addition, between sets and trips to the food trucks, guests were able to play cornhole, horseshoes, and KanJam. Our thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate!
Siemens' Mobile Showcase
On August 31, 2016 the Siemens’ Measuring Success Tour made its way to ACE’s Delaware Valley office. The 53 foot interactive mobile showcase gave attendees the opportunity to see Siemens DCS, instrumentation, and analytics solutions up close and in person. In addition, Siemens experts were on hand to host in-person demonstrations and answer any questions. As a supplement to the process automation expert demonstrations throughout the day, there were also two focused presentations. ACE’s Ian Burns discussed the topic of control system migrations, and ACE’s Mike Lennon discussed applying ISA101 HMI concepts to existing HMI applications. Our thanks to Siemens for making the trip to Newark!
