Gail Nichols and Richard Cherry, the Wife and Husband founders and chief executive officers are shown here receiving their Smithsonian Computerworld Award for creating the now worldwide internet-based Virtual Call Centers of today, employing millions of people in virtually every country worldwide. Willow CSN (now Arise.com) provides our award winning work-from-home call center.
RETURNABLE SECURITY SHIPPING CONTAINERS
The FANTASTIC ORGANIZER is simply the next evolution of our Smithsonian Computerworld Award winning products.
These RETURNABLE Security Shipping Containers, that you see almost everyday, are examples of world class products we created and patented in 1978 that today are found in virtually every store and in every country and in most households worldwide.
At first, we couldn't give these containers away because cardboard boxes were so cheap - but they were only for one-time use and were costly to dispose. Today these security containers are the Shipping Industry Standard WORLDWIDE .
Colonel Harland Sanders - KFC and Richard 1979
KFC was the first Food company to replace cardboard boxes with Richard's Specially Designed Returnable Containers. They were so impressed The Colonel became involved and took a few lids home for his strawberry patch. Well ! . . . the solid plastic lids killed his strawberries - - - the most interesting story took place and he became one of Richard's closest friends and mentors as did many other Industry Leaders whose Industries Richard helped improve and in many cases revolutionize.
VIRTUAL CALL CENTERS
In 1991 we created the original Virtual Call Center technology and business method. We invented this at the beginning of the Internet to create meaningful employment for people with disabilities and others such as young parents and seniors who needed to work from home at their convenience.
At first, governments accused us of ghettoizing and exploiting people with telecommuting while today over 2 million people are employed around the world in Virtual Call Centers. You probably talk to one of these agents almost daily at a major retailer, hospital, government office or any other service provider worldwide. We received a Smithsonian Computerworld Award and President's Task Force Award for this creation.
Today Virtual Call Centers, employing millions of people with disabilities and others needing to work from home serving you, are the Call Center Industry Standard WORLDWIDE.
SEAMLESS CONTINUOUS FOOD PROCESSING SYSTEMS
Virtually everything you eat or drink came through our most important product creation: Stainless Steel Seamless Continuous Food Processing Systems.
Previously, all food and beverages were produced with Take-Apart Piping Systems, as shown in inset, that were disassembled at the end of each day and manually cleaned . . . a haven for bacteria.
Continuous Piping Systems were created by Richard in 1972 at which time Kraft Foods, by Mr. Kraft personally, gave Richard his first major order for Kraft Food's then newest plant in Allentown PA., the largest food plant ever built until then.
Currently, Continuous Piping Systems, that you benefit from every day, are the Food, Dairy, Beverage, and Brewing Industries Processing Standard WORLDWIDE.
Tom Monaghan founder of Domino's Pizza
In 2004, Tom Monaghan, after selling Domino's for in excess of One Billion Dollars, called Richard to see if he could assist Richard using Tom's vast experience in the Rapid Delivery of Pizza that Tom had created 40 years earlier. Neither Tom nor Richard could raise the funds need to offset the combination of Amazon, Google AND eBay. Without A Patent That Was A Bridge Too Far.

In our early years, we didn't bother with patents because we felt they were too expensive and nobody would copy us. Then one day, we watched a competitor buy one of our newest products, copy and sell it below our cost after we spent a fortune developing it. We weren't protected so there was nothing we could do. Thereafter, we patented everything we developed THAT WAS PATENTABLE.
Before we go to a new market, we spend years making absolutely sure our product has met all competitive tests such as: product cost, pricing, product excellence, reliability, simplicity, and shipping & installation excellence. After that, most competitors realize that without the U.S. Market there may not be enough demand elsewhere for their costs and efforts, so their first attempt is always to request a licensing agreement as we have done with all of our past worldwide successes.
Our Security Shipping Containers, Virtual Call Centers and Stainless Steel Continuous Piping Systems discussed above, are Super Products. During the time before their patents expired, we made sure we provided highly competitive pricing based on excellent value, excellent sales, service and customer support to stabilize our products against such future competitors, thus protecting us with delighted loyal customers worldwide.
IN SUMMARY, a good competitor helps create an even larger marketplace, so our long term objective is to always remain in the top position with excellence in price, product and service.
