Thanks go to Wilson and Eddie for their hard work to complete these BRD/FRDs.
Special thanks to Eddie, who joined me in burning the midnight oil this week.
Eddie this is a really good start at troubleshooting this! (Production Issue)
Great Catch Eddie, release R3.1.6 seems to be making 200 additional coupon calls in production.
Eddie has been a fantastic help in updating our claims system software. He has always been responsive and has come up with innovative ideas that have transformed how we do business. I would highly recommend Eddie and his company to anyone that needs custom software done.
Eddie had respect and faith in his developers to perform their jobs with the best of their abilities. Eddie was always willing to offer his assistance and had an excellent rapport with the companys customer base. He was always available to answer any questions or help with any issues that would arise. His management style was unique in that he let developers have a sense of control.
I worked directly with Eddie and his team of developers to review, fix, enhance, create and deploy products. He has a very positive attitude, acknowledges his teammates input and has an excellent rapport and ability to comnunicate well with clients, making him a valuable member of the team. I was also impressed with his forward thinking and ideas.
I am a fan of the dashboards you create our customers are going to love them.
We are confident that Eddie is the right person to help ScanOnline meet it's strategic and growth objectives in the coming years.
Eddie and I worked on a Document management system, OMR/OCR, secure FTP, and scanning applications. The company would often change their programming requirements, but Eddie quickly continued to produce software updates. Eddie's dedication and strong knowledge in .NET, computer networking, and Microsoft SQL helped the company to achieve its goal. He was able to assist in developing custom applications that could not be satisfied by expensive boxed software.
Eddie, great job on EDMS (Electronic Document Management System), when your back in Wilmington I will treat you to a steak dinner!
Eddie, EDMS is working flawlessly across 60 stations and the users are not reporting problems with scanning. Great job!
Eddie, both from a technical, developmental, project management, personal, personnel, and business process perspective, was an incredible asset to the company. In addition to managing his site. If that isn't pure talent, then I surely don't know what is.
I had the opportunity to work peripherally to Eddie and observe the manner in which he ran his development team. He proved to be a skilled project manager and consistently delivered positive results in a challenging environment. I was particularly impressed by the way he advocated for his team.
It was pleasure to work with Eddie on a Major Business project at Dimon International and other multiple assignments, I was impressed by Eddie's depth of knowledge, high skill set in software development process from conception to delivery. Eddie is a creative person. That's him - multi-skilled, forward thinking, insightful and result driven co-worker. As a Project Manager in his other assignments, Eddie applied the most advanced management techniques that helped project team achieve successful results. He has very positive attitude towards work. In depth experience and intelligence makes Eddie to view solutions instead of problems.
Eddie is enthusiastic and innovative and was key contributor in a software development team challenged to develop solutions that met the needs of a young, rapidly growing and evolving jet aircraft maintenance business.
Eddie has experience in a variety of industries and environments giving him a unique and valuable perspective. He is extremely easy to communicate with, always asks good questions and seeks to fully understand the situation. Eddie brings a positive "how can I help" attitude to work every day and is a pleasure to work with.
Eddie was the best Project Manager I have ever had in my career. Not only did Eddie always have a high level grasp of projects, but being very technical, he also had a detailed understanding of projects. Eddie's management and people skills are excellent. He was always liked by all team members and yet was able to get the best work from all involved. Eddie has always been very resourceful, creative, and able to do far more than be a skillful project manager as evidenced by the design and creation of his own successful dot com, Avoli, Inc.
Eddie was a pleasure to work with. He is very knowledgeable and a very patient professional.
Eddie has many talents and has a deep understanding of web development, technology, and social media. He is an outstanding programmer and has worked on some amazing projects. I recommend Eddie because he has more eCommerce experience and ideas how to be successful on the web than anyone I have ever met.
Eddie has the unique ability to pull together all the pieces of the puzzle, keep them together, and make sure everyone is always on the same page and headed in the right direction. His education, experience and professionalism have brought us great results.
Eddie is great at writing processes that are reusable. He was always looking for ways to improve processes.
Eddie Drye is one of the best out of the box thinkers that can deliver what he and his team envisions. He is also the type of person to stay on a project until it is done, no matter how long or how difficult. His drive to solve complex problems and to create new innovative software solutions is unparalleled from any other developer or analyst I have had on my team.
You are a great asset to the team Wachovia and I am glad I had the pleasure of working with you. If I had my own company I would love to have you as my IT director.
Jimmy's users are pleased with the RECMTMS application and reports. Excellent news as always.
The website is fantastic. Thank you very much for the hard work you have put into it.
We received a message this morning that the Appworx_prod oracle production box was low on disk space. Eddie's program EZ-mon has turned out to be very helpful.
The tool looks great and I'm impressed with what you've done. Thanks for the hard work.
We would like to take the opportunity to say thank you for a job well done. Your efforts have been a very positive influence on our relationship with New Step Software. Working with you has been a pleasure.
Triad Guaranty introduces innovation (Software written by Eddie Drye)... The risk-sharing performance report will greatly improve partners ability to manage their book of business.
Thanks for all the good work! The ESRI mapping component is working great!
You and Mark have shown that hiring outside consultants is definitely the way to go.
Great work on the PBX Rexx system. Sorry the system is so convoluted. You have made the best of it.
Thank you so much Eddie for the Visual Basic library you donated to the Y2K migration project for USAir. You are a great resource for us and are glad to have you on the team.
Just wanted you to know that EC Tools you wrote was a BIG help in completing a recent PCR request. It is an excellent tool. It saved time and effort in completing my task.
Great work Eddie! Clearly the whole company is benefiting from your VB expertise and your continuous sharing of routines you have developed through Townhall.
Thank you for all the functions and subs that you put into the libraries. I've only used a handful so far, but they have saved me a lot of time. They are all easy to use and understand
The implementation of the IRI Consumer Sales databases on the MVS machine in Wilkes Barre was a success! All systems GO! Thanks to a tremendous show of effort from our Information Processing Services group, IRI and our dedicated Marketing Systems Team the project has been completed on-time and without any loss of service to users as full access has been maintained through the project. Project savings in excess of $2 million.
I think Eddie has done a good job on reviewing the present market for this type of software; I wish more developers would put this level of effort into it. Eddie's assertion, confirmed by Ahmed, that native DB-LIB is the fastest access path to SQL Server is absolutely correct.
Bruce: My main man (Eddie Drye) has been a great help to me down here.... He has some things published in Townhall y'all might be interested in. Yesterday we the entire process up as a PIF and this is the result. I'm putting this one to bed.
Thank you for your hard work and cooperation on our first validation process. I really appreciate your attitude and initiative in following up through the various stages of this process. I am looking forward to many successful validations to come!
Just wanted to add my appreciation concerning the fine work Eddie and Dave did for the first Account Review database update. As you know, support of the Account Review system is a top priority of the LifeSavers management team. Your group has done an excellent job assuming these key responsibilities. Thank you!
Eddie, you have done such a great job on implementing the new Medicare, Medicaid, BCBS changes.
Great job on the changes to the Patient Billing System. You've really picked up Business Basic fast.
