New Clickstop Parking Lot Signage is Going Up!

New Clickstop Parking Lot Signage is Going Up!

If you have been by Clickstop lately, you probably have noticed the finishing touches going up inside and around the building. We have been really excited to see the little details come to life. But sometimes the things that seem little to us, makes all the difference to people coming to visit our company, and even to some of the employees around the building.  One of those things is the new signage going up in our parking lot.

Today, despite the extreme humidity, Mitch has been outside installing all of our new parking signs. (Thanks Mitch!)

We have added 4 styles of signs to the lot, reserving 15 spaces for various guests and employees.

First, and the most obvious, was our Clickstop Visitor Parking. Now when a guest comes to Clickstop, there are 8 spots reserved right at the front of the building. In the past, there as been a lot of confusion for visitors, and with these new spaces right next to the main entrance, nobody should have any issues finding the right door to go in.

Second, we have designated parking for our US Cargo Control visitors and customers. We took the logo colors, and mimicked the swoosh in the logo to help with our design. We love the look of these new signs!

Next, and very important for quite a few women in the company, we added Expecting Mothers parking! We have lost count on how many expecting mothers we have right now! But once the cold weather hits and we get our first ice storm of the season, these parking spots will be a hot commodity.

Finally, we have one parking spot left that needed assigned. The Rock Star Parking! Every quarter Clickstop recognizes one employee who goes above and beyond in their work and their involvement in our core values and code behaviors. So for a quarter of the year, they have their very own parking spot, right up front!

We have a lot more signage to design, indoor and out. But we feel excellent about this new addition to our Clickstop campus!

 

The ISU Solar Car Stops at Clickstop!

The ISU Solar Car Stops at Clickstop!

A consumer-friendly solar car build by Iowa State University students is making its way around Iowa this month, and Clickstop was lucky enough to get a visit on June 21st.

PrISUm, ISU’s solar car team, is comprised of 120 students. The car, called Penumbra, will visit all of Iowa’s 99 counties in June as part of an annual outreach to showcase the fully sustainable vehicle, as well as promote renewable energy and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education.

Clickstop employees and community members were excited to check out the car. Penumbra will be competing in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge in Australia this October. The car is certainly a head turner, with its aerodynamic design and bright Iowa State University color scheme. The car took two years to design and manufacture, and has many features that can be found in present-day motor vehicles, including four seats, Bluetooth audio and wireless charging for cell phones.

Instead of gasoline or diesel fuel, Penumbra is powered by the sun.  This recharges the on board batteries as the vehicle is driven. Completely charged, Penumbra delivers up to 200 miles. On a sunny day, a constant speed of 40 mph can be achieved without using energy from the batteries.

Employees at Clickstop were excited to see the innovation and hard work that went into the creation of this car.
