10th Anniversary
2009 marks a very special event for Astron Solutions - our 10th Anniversary! Astron Solutions would like to thank you for making this possible by having an Open House. Astron is planning an open house birthday celebration on Thursday, January 22nd 2009 from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Click here to see full details and how to RSVP. See you there!
Fact or Fiction?
Fact or fiction: It's possible to send over 10,000 text messages in a month.


A 13-year-old girl probably broke a world record by sending 14,528 text messages in the span of a month. That's just SENDING; if the total includes receiving that number is probably somewhere near 30,000. The math comes out to roughly one sent message every two minutes for every waking hour (based on 16 hours awake a day).

Stories like these are the reasons why organizations impose rules on personal communication in the office. Imagine having an employee who just sits at their desk and texts ALL DAY? Imagine if an employee had this type of productivity with something else? The potential is amazing.
