to cast your vote for
"Innovative WBE of the Year"

For those of you who don't know,
Lightning Bolt and Supply
(also known as Thunder Threads)
is my family's (the Valverdes)industrial fastener business
(nuts, bolts, screws...).
Wesley, my BIL, helped develop an App
that is nominated for this award
and can WIN with your help!

Here is a little description of its fabulousness...

Lightning Bolt developed a system in which customers can effortlessly replenish their fastener, fitting, and MRO inventory by using our new Customer Managed Inventory (CMI) app. Lightning Bolt has created a custom program which uses a small cordless laser scanner that pairs with any smart phone or computer. The app has also been adapted for the iPhone/iPad by using the optical scanner in lieu of a scanner. Lighting Bolt's original CMI program was designed for computers. Recog...nizing it was important for the system to be extremely quick, easy to use and friendly to the many mobile devices on the market, apps for the iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, and droid devices were created. Lightning Bolt is now giving this technology (including scanner) to all of its customers at no charge. Lighting Bolt's CMI scanners allow our customers to get exactly what they want while also receiving the absolute lowest price on the market…guaranteed! Lightning Bolt has been able to benefit from this technology through growth by capturing an increasing and ever-growing market share of the North American fastener business. Lightning Bolt's sole purpose of developing our CMI system was not for recognition, but for simplifying the difficult process of replenishing fastener, fitting, and MRO inventory into an effortless process. Our customers have expressed a great deal of enthusiasm by us giving them such a tool to save money while also regaining control over their "bolt bin" inventory.

Help them out and vote today!
Deadline is 11:59pm on April 17,
the most "Like"'s = a VICTORY!!!
(p.s. I'm a really sore loser...
every vote helps that horrific quality of mine stay calm...
thanks in advance!)
