While You Were Sleeping

Alpha TestingAlpha Testing did things a little differently this round at the Form Follows Fitness 5K at Klyde Warren Park in Dallas. This year, we sponsored our first booth! Our table was filled with all sorts of goodies – granola bars, stickers, koozies, and, of course, a giant bowl of candy – the perfect post workout fuel! In addition to the table treats, Alpha also raffled out Yeti Tumblers to booth visitors. We couldn’t have asked for better race weather and to top it all off, the sun came out post-race to warm up the morning. Thanks to all the Alpha family and friends who woke up early on a Saturday morning to support Alpha and a big thank you to our lone star runner for Team Alpha, Junior Hernandez! Looking forward to next year!Alpha Testing, Inc

Marketing Field Trip

Alpha TestingWhen you’re not exactly dressed for a project site exploration, you improvise. Alpha Testing’s Jeff Wilt, Marianne Stanton, Marybeth Kirkpatrick, and our summer intern Nina got creative at the construction site of The Music Factory in Las Colinas. Using the truck as a means to see over the blue-covered fence, the four were able to watch a living and breathing Alpha project.

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s…

Alpha Testing, Inc.…The Houston Drone! You might have seen the works of this photography wizard on the Alpha Testing Facebook page. Travis Barrette, from our Houston office, is the owner and operator of the drone and the two have toured numerous Houston area project sites… hence the bird’s-eye view project photos! The attached camera not only takes remarkable pictures, but also gives the operator a live streaming from the air. During a visit to the Dallas office, Travis and Megan Corn gave a drone demonstration to the Marketing team. All five watched in awe as the drone climbed higher and higher until it became a spec in the sky. A little more fun than that camera on your smartphone, huh?Alpha Testing, Inc

Down, Set, Ruff!

Alpha Testing, IncStart your Super Bowl Sunday the right way with the Puppy Bowl! While the Patriots and Falcons warm up, warm your heart up with Team Ruff and Team Fluff at GEICO Stadium. Watch 39 puppies score touchdowns, make puppy penalties, and furry fumbles. These players are all visiting from a shelter and will be available for adoption along with 78 others who did not make the starting lineup.

This will be Animal Planet’s 13th Puppy Bowl, created to promote pet adoptions at local shelters and rescue organizations. Alpha is proud to have served several animal shelters across the state. Projects have included shelters in Farmers Branch, Fredericksburg, Greenville, La Porte, Lake Worth, McKinney, Murphy, and Seguin. Who will be the MVP (Most Valuable Puppy) this year? Watch and see!
