BirdDog Version 4.0

BirdDog™ Information Systems is pleased to announce the release of Version 4.0 of Remote Data Retrieval. This newest system, to which you automatically have access when you log into our host site, provides enhanced features that are certain to make you even more productive... such as a more streamlined and intuitive user interface, the ability for end-users to perform ad hoc changes to alarm settings, and layered administration. With layered administration, end-user organizations can assign BirdDog client administrators who, in turn, will be able to add/delete other enterprise users, set each user's rights (from read-only through full editing, including use of Demand Polling), reset user passwords, add/delete Morning Report recipients, and much more.

In addition to the BirdDog Remote Data Retrieval system functional enhancements, we've also deployed new security provisions to further complement our previously implemented use of an HTTPS website to provide full SSL encryption of your sensitive and proprietary information. These enhancements include the use of unique email addresses as User IDs, as well as stronger Password requirements with history restrictions and forced routine changes. As before, with just a single account User ID and Password, your log-in will provide direct access to all BirdDog SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) systems to which you have end-user rights. And as you add or remove systems from your user profile, the single sign-on process will automatically recognize those changes.

BirdDog Security Policy Change Alert

Security Policy Change Alert - For the enhanced security of BirdDog™ Information Systems users, effective November 11, 2013, User IDs will be unique email addresses and account password requirements will be strengthened. New passwords will need to be at least 8 characters in length and contain at least one each of the following characters: uppercase alphabetical; lowercase alphabetical; numeric; and “special” (such as @, &, _, #, etc.). At the appropriate time, you will be prompted during your BirdDog log-in to click on a webpage link that will provide more details and guide you through your password change process.

Coastal Flows HR Director Competes in the 2015 Houston Marathon
Date: 2/24/2015

Elizabeth Wojtowicz, the Director of Human Resources at Coastal Flow, recently participated in and completed the Houston Marathon on January 18th, 2015. By running through the “Run for a Reason” program, she was able to raise money and awareness for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This is the second full marathon she has completed. She has also completed 15 half marathons and trained for a third full marathon that was cancelled due to severe weather.

After participating in cross country in high school, Elizabeth stopped running completely. Her story of how she got back into running is best explained in her own words,
 
“With my youngest son, I was on bed rest for three months and it was miserable. I’m a planner and I needed something to focus on, and so I signed up for the Detroit Half Marathon and created a training plan. It helped to make me feel like I wasn’t going to be bed ridden forever and have a plan. It was a slow start, but nine months after my little guy was born, he and my husband were there to see me finish my first half marathon.”
 
When asked if she intended to continue running in marathons, she said,
 
“I don’t know if I’ll continue doing full marathons…I’ve trained for three marathons and it’s just not as much fun as training for and running half marathons. Training for a full marathon is a huge time commitment. The half marathon is still a good challenge and it’s fun. Training for a half marathon is nice because you don’t have to leave your kids for four hours on Saturday so you can go for a run. It’s a lot easier to fit in a two hour run. So I’ll definitely continue with the half marathons. I said I’d never do a full one again after training for the New York marathon, but I signed up again [for the Houston marathon], so who knows?”
 
Elizabeth has been married for 14 years, has two sons and a stepdaughter. She has been working with Coastal Flow since July of 2014. After growing up and living in Michigan throughout her life, the cold drove her to seek out a warmer climate. She has not regretted accepting the position of leading the HR department at Coastal Flow Measurement. The warmer climate and joining the Coastal Flow family has proven a blessing for her and her family. Running has also provided a tremendous amount of bonding time between her and her husband. “It’s something we love to do together now!” Elizabeth explained. Besides training together, they also travel to several states for different races. They have raced in Michigan, Louisiana, Illinois, Ohio, Nevada, and Texas. With no intention of quitting in the near future, who knows where else their hobby may take them!
