In this new blog series, we want to take time to feature one very special member of our World Emblem family. Matthew Poole, the 17 year old son of one of our newest team members, VP of Reseller Sales Scott Poole, has Cerebral Palsy. A condition marked by impaired muscle coordination, Cerebral Palsy is an umbrella term that refers to a group of congenital disorders affecting a person’s ability to move. Despite this, Matthew has been noted as one of the most dedicated manager’s Pisgah High School’s basketball team has ever had. In fact, he’s slowly become one of the most popular students at Pisgah High School. “Matthew is as genuine a human being as you can imagine,” Pisgah basketball coach Casey Kruk said. “He wants what is best for everyone, and doesn’t ask a lot in return. He just wants to be part of the team.”

In a heartwarming turn of events, senior Thomas Tatham decided to pass along his chance in the spotlight and give Matthew his spot on the team’s starting lineup. “He’s the most dedicated person we have,” Thomas said. “He supports us 100 percent. No matter what the score is, we know Matthew will be there for us.” At the start of the game on Senior Night, with his team jersey at the ready, Matthew lived up to his acclaim. Commandeering an inspiring speech to his fellow team mates, he went on to successfully score the first basket of his high school basketball game.

In this video you can see the crowd in the game burst into heaps of enthusiasm as Matthew scores the first point of the game; the faces of his team mates simultaneously bursting with joy. This excitement was not reserved for the game alone however. The aftermath of Matthew’s life would grow to become equally as exciting, as local newspapers and news stations eagerly awaited to cover his story. His story has resonated with people in a record way. Now, with a total of 1,000 likes and over 460 shares on Facebook, the video has become the most popular item ever been posted on Pisgah High School’s Facebook page.

The dedication, team work and perseverance Matthew shows has proven to be an inspiration to not only those who are closest to him, but to all those that are made aware of his story. As a company we are touched by his story. As a new addition to our  family we want to share his inspiring story with the world in the hopes that it will inspire those enduring difficult struggles to have the courage to persevere in the same light as Matthew.

World Emblem is sending a huge congratulations and best regards to Matthew, whose future is as bright as his personality.

Take a look at some additional pictures of the event below:

4 Reasons Why You Should Care About Our New Tracking System

Months of hard work, long hours and tireless preparation has finally paid off. Orders will now be that much easier to track with our newly upgraded Tracking System!

If you’ve ever had to place an order, especially for some form of production, you know that tracking your order throughout the entire ordering process is not a functionality many places give you. Even when they do, there’s no accounting for accuracy or speed; especially when the dreaded day comes when your order arrives late, incomplete or completely filled with errors. If you’re lucky, you get an email once your order has been shipped with some type of tracking number. That may be fine for the everyday end-buyer; but when your job depends on the effective production and distribution of that particular order, being able to track it throughout every stage is crucial. This is especially true when you consider that from the moment you have relayed payment for your order, that company your purchasing from is now in charge of something that your own work is depending on.

This is why we put such importance on the technology we use to produce your order. With client satisfaction being our number 1 goal, we want to make sure we are providing all of our clientele with the Ultimate Experience throughout every facet of our business.

All of that being said, as a current or potential client, here are 4 reasons why you should care about our new tracking system:

  1. GET LARGER ORDERS QUICKER | By reducing your order’s processing time, simplifying the work flow and replacing obsolete technology, you will see the overall productivity of our company dramatically increase. This increase in productivity means that it will be easier than ever to place and track larger orders.
  2. FASTER TRACKING | This reduced processing time means that you will receive tracking updates quicker and more accurately.
  3. INCREASED SECURITY | Because of increased processing times, your tracking information will not only be relayed much quicker than before, but , consequentially, it will also be that much more accurate and dependable.
  4. SIMPLE USER INTERFACE | Aside from an increase in productivity and speed, this new tracking system will also offer a better integration with our clients’ on-line catalogs. This improved integration means that not only will you get updates on the status of your order faster than before, but accessing the information will be much easier as well.

Tracking is a vital piece of software to any company. This is why we place such a high regard on making sure ours is as optimized as possible. The production capabilities of our company rely on the speed and synchronization at which client orders are processed. With these new updates we hope to provide you as a current or potential client with nothing less than the ultimate experience. In the end, the upgrades we have made will pave the way to successful growth in the near future and open up a whole new world of possibilities for not only us as a company but for all of our valued clientele.
