Robert Headrick is RESULTS’ Senior Account Executive in the Lenexa office and has been with RESULTS since the beginning.

Robert was born and raised in Offerle, Kansas (population 177) and immediately moved to Kansas City upon graduation to attend DeVry University where he received his bachelor’s degree in Electronic Engineering Technology in the late 1980s. He has been working in technology ever since. He began his career in 1993 selling hardware and services at Logistical Solutions in Lenexa. In 1999, he went to ComputerSource which in 2004 became RESULTS Technology.

Like only 1% of the population, Robert is ambidextrous. He eats, writes and hunts with his right hand. He plays golf, tennis and baseball with his left. Ambidextrous people are often known for being “out-of-the-box” thinkers. If you’ve ever worked with him to solve a technical problem, you’ll agree that fits him to a tee. Maybe that’s why when asked what his favorite part of working at RESULTS was, he replied, “helping clients solve problems.”

When he’s not at work, Robert enjoys hunting, fishing, gaming, and NASCAR. He is also RESULTS’ resident weatherman as the farming tendencies never go away.

Adam Hurshman

Adam is one of the new technicians that came to RESULTS through the VisionPace IT merger this past summer, and boy are we lucky to have him! This multi-talented service desk employee not only excels in fixing computers, solving IT problems and teaching clients how to use their computers, but he’s also a skilled ice skater and instructor.

Adam grew up on a 650 acre farm in Butler, Missouri, surrounded by farm animals and five sisters. Talent and brains runs in his family as everyone either sings, skates, or is some kind of doctor. Adam moved from Butler to Kansas City in his 20s, and went to work for Gateway in the early 90s when home computers were just becoming commonplace.

After leaving Gateway Adam took classes at DeVry University before joining Sprint’s 4G project, where his specialty became IT training. He eventually started his own computer technology support company, Your Mobile IT in Kansas City which he ran for three years. After closing that business he joined VisionPace IT, which gave RESULTS the opportunity to add him to our already excellent staff in July.

Currently, Adam enjoys helping RESULTS customers, teaching ice skating and is assisting his dad’s own computer support company in Butler (in his spare time!). Obviously, Adam likes to stay busy so he’s in the perfect position here at RESULTS!

Heard of BYOD, or "bring your own device", to work before? More and more companies are letting or even asking their employees to bring their phones or laptops to work. There are obvious benefits, but also dangers that may not be as obvious. Read on to find out what they are.

You may have noticed more and more of your employees or colleagues bringing their own computing devices to work—be it their mobile phone, tablet, or laptop. Or perhaps in your company or in other companies you may have seen, they have let people decide which device they prefer because they are used to it at home. You may not realize it, but this is all part of a large trend called the "consumerization" of IT, in which the influence of consumer technology is being increasingly felt in the workplace. With the wide availability of cheap but powerful mobile devices and online services, a growing number of people are being exposed to the latest technology at home first—adopting them at a rate faster than most businesses are able to manage. This flips on its head the old paradigm in which traditionally new technologies would be rolled out to businesses first, before they would find their way to consumers.

This trend, plus the increasing sophistication of young workers today and their frustration with the tools available to them at the office, is pushing some companies to adopt a "bring your own device" or BYOD policy at work. They are not alone. According to research by technology analyst group Gartner, end users, not the IT department, will soon be responsible for 50 percent of business IT procurement decisions—ultimately bringing and running their own systems on company networks. Meanwhile, according to management consultants Accenture, around one-third of today's younger generation of workers (a group called "millenials") not only wants to use the computer of their choice at work, but also wants control of the applications they use too.

The benefits companies cite to adopting a BYOD policy are many, among them:

  • Savings on capital expenses and training costs in using company equipment—compensating employees instead via other means such as flexible work hours, subsidized purchases, insurance, and other benefits.
  • Less management headache—effectively letting employees decide what to use releases the company from some overhead and management responsibilities.
  • Improved employee satisfaction—by giving employees the freedom to use devices and applications that they prefer.
However, before you consider letting employees bring their own personal technology to the work place, be aware that there are also disadvantages, and sometimes very real dangers in doing so. These include:
  • Non-standardization of hardware, operating systems, and applications. If your business operations require that some equipment is integrated with others, then BYOD can in the long run actually increase IT management costs and decrease efficiency.
  • Exposing your network to malware or security vulnerabilities and breaches. When your employees bring their own devices to work, you lose important control over their security. Consumer devices often don't employ comparable bullet-proof security technologies mandated by businesses.
  • Leakage of confidential or proprietary information. Employees will naturally do what they want with the data on their devices, even if it doesn't belong to them, or it's against company policies. Employees can also lose precious company data when they misplace or damage their personal devices.
  • Lower economies of scale in procurement. Essentially because everyone is buying devices on their own, you miss out on the chance to consolidate purchases and lower purchase costs for everybody.
Have you adopted a BYOD policy at work? Thinking about it? Worried about this trend? If you need to understand BYOD better so you can define a policy for your staff, contact us and see how we can help.
