Full-O-Pep Embraces Technology at 36th Annual Expo

Full-O-Pep Appliances Inc., dba American Rental celebrated their 36th Anniversary by hosting their annual trade expo and Kent Hoffman memorial charity golf tournament followed by the company’s annual Hog Roast party on July 21st and 22nd. The trade show was held at The Season’s Lodge & Conference Center in Nashville, IN, the Hog Roast was held on Full-O-Pep’s owner and former APRO president David P. David’s property also located in Nashville, IN.

This year’s trade expo theme was “Embracing Technology” with the idea of introducing new technology to work with rather than against Full-O-Pep’s current systems. The belief is by introducing new pieces to their employees they will remove the fear of technology and instead embrace it.  “The vision of the future has unlimited automation possibilities – from having customer electronically sign a contract to an automated touch screen attendant,” shared Full-O-Pep Chief Technology Officer/Chief Information Officer Raouf Bishay. “From back office to front office, inventory and warehouse, we showcased some of the possible implementations. With that said, not all technology is suitable to our RTO environment but we must test all that is available and choose what is practical.”

Everyone was invited out to David’s property for the much anticipated annual company hog roast where vendors, employees and their families enjoyed hot air balloon rides, inflatable water slides, go-carts, a dunk tank, live music and food. As always, David served his homemade famous baked beans that did not disappoint.
