Barre, VT, December 20, 2011: The Snell Group Launches the Snell Community joining IRTalk with new forum, MotorTalk
The Snell Group is pleased to announce the launch of the Snell Community, an online forum for both infrared thermography and electric motor testing professionals. The Snell Community, which launched Wednesday December 14, 2011, is a combination of the existing IRTalk forum that many have come to know and enjoy over the years with an all-new forum, MotorTalk.
For years, IRTalk has been the go-to discussion forum for all infrared professionals from maintenance technicians to reliability engineers, electrical contractors, building inspectors, weatherization professionals and infrared providers.
“We know that IRTalk users truly enjoy the discussion forum as a tool to learn and share knowledge with others in the industry and we wanted to give electric motor testing professionals that same benefit,” said The Snell Group President, Jim Fritz.
“We heard feedback from our customers that there was a need for such a forum and we wanted to fill the void with MotorTalk,” said Fritz. “We wanted to improve our customer’s experience, and bringing the two forums under the same roof of the Snell Community allowed us to make lots of great advancements for users.”
Regardless of your equipment preference, training, or experience, MotorTalk welcomes all professionals. Whether you’re a motor testing technician, mechanic, reliability leader, predictive maintenance technician, or just want to learn more about motors, IRTalk is the place to learn from individuals who are active in the industry.
Existing users of IRTalk will notice many upgrades to the forum, also seen in the new MotorTalk forum. New to the Snell Community is the ability to add friends, follow threads, message other members, and browse group activity. Updated software allows users greater control over browsing, content sharing, searching, connecting, and customization.
The Snell Group has also expanded its reach by simultaneously unveiling Foro en Español, a message board within IRTalk exclusively created for Spanish-speaking thermographers.
“We’re very excited about our new Spanish message board, “Foro en Español,” said Fritz. “We wanted to bring the great conversations, stories, discussions and collaboration that users experience in IRTalk to our Spanish speaking customers.”
The Snell Community is now up and running on The Snell Group website, www.thesnellgroup.com/
