I am finally writing to acknowledge my appreciation to Joe Daniel for his efforts in developing the new CISCO Crane website. I came to him with a vision of what I wanted and he was able to put it together perfectly. What I wanted was to show us as the local, family-owned, crane rental company that could also meet the needs of the largest steel construction projects in this area. Also, being an ironworker myself, I wanted him to keep it simple and easy to navigate. In order to do that, he had to talk me out of a few things and put up with a lot of my requests. I think Joe met or exceeded all my expectations, but never lost sight of what I was trying to accomplish. I never felt as if he directed me to anything that took away from the plan we had as a company.
I wanted to make sure we had a photo gallery to display some of our cranes and equipment, some of our impressive steel job sites, and some of the histories that my grandpa Cisco built this company on. Obviously, I could have added hundreds of pictures but he helped me scale back to focus on the highlights, and not make it a photo album. I needed his input to make this even better than I had hoped for.
Let’s face it, most people will never have a need for machinery moving, steel erectors, welding, or crane rental, so we used to question the need to target the internet market. But the reality is, this is our society now and it has become a part of our lives. I know Cisco would have been the first to try and resist this switch, and I chuckle when I think of him with a smartphone, but I think he would be proud of where this company is. I hope this site provides another avenue for growth in our company and I know that transition would not be possible without Joe.
