Employee Spotlight | Ken Allgood
Software Architect at Infuzion Solutions
How did you come to work for Infuzion Solutions? What is your background?
Previously, I worked for an IT Solutions company in Johnson City, TN, for almost 11 years doing Microsoft Dynamics GP support/install/implementations. I did everything from tier 1 support through planning and rolling out upgrades, installs, etc. I also worked on Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Microsoft SQL Server installs/support, web/desktop application development, and SQL report writing. The company I worked for was acquired by a global corporation with a different ERP and CRM solution in-house and did not sell ERP/CRM solutions, so I found another position.
What makes you happiest in your job?
I enjoy building things and seeing them work. I also like to problem solve and fix broken things, such as broken SQL queries.
Why do you like working for Infuzion Solutions?
It’s a friendly atmosphere, and employees are given the needed tools to succeed. I can raise concerns about not being able to complete a task or meeting a deadline. I feel free to raise alternative options to a problem or can inquire about alternative solutions.
How do you unwind outside of work?
Playing with my kids, video games, RC cars/boats/drones.
What advice would you give to someone starting at Infuzion Solutions?
Be cognitive of your skills and ask when you need help. Take ownership of problems and follow through, and speak up if you get stuck on a problem. Don’t be afraid to ask for a needed resource.
Why is Infuzion Solutions different?
Corrie (CEO) doesn’t just run the company; she is highly involved in all implementations and ensures everything is happening as it needs to, involving each division as needed.
What can a company expect when forming a partnership with Infuzion Solutions?
Infuzion doesn’t just sell a set of tools. We build tools for our clients. We’ll build and customize the tools to make the process flow optimal for each client.
