IDM is more than a product development firm. It’s an environment—one where the right products get made above all else. To maintain that focus on client success, it takes high-performing teams made up of leaders in their respective disciplines. That’s why IDM partners with a number of companies that excel in everything from research and strategy to prototyping and testing.
Fahrenheit is widely recognized for their engaging and user-friendly designs. At the same time, they recognize the value of design in creating significant business outcomes. They understand how design not only affects a product’s appeal, but also impacts everything from engineering, manufacturing, and unit cost. It’s their balance of form and function that sets Fahrenheit apart.
Sometimes Fahrenheit brings IDM into a client relationship. This happened in the case of a Texas-based inventor of plasma energy solutions for air sterilization.
Other times, IDM turns to Fahrenheit for full-service concept and design that elevates the user experience. When the CEO of AMX approached us about creating a category-defining control panel for conference rooms, we knew Fahrenheit would deliver.
It takes a great deal of trust—and a certain degree of calculated risk—for clients to work with IDM and Fahrenheit in this way. Many times, it seems easier to job things out to subcontractors or simply go with a one-stop-shop. But the rewards—collaboration, fresh perspectives, healthy conflict, and accountability—far outweigh any perceived convenience.
Anne likes things neat and tidy. As an avid gardener, she knows a pristine landscape doesn’t happen by chance—there’s always someone pruning, watering, and tending to the details. Anne is that person for IDM. “I shape things,” she says, “often behind the scenes, to make sure we deliver what we promise.”
At IDM, Anne works to “make excellence a habit” by overseeing our ISO certification program. She also helps cultivate a culture focused on customer satisfaction—whether that “customer” is internal or external. With her self-described “relentless smile” and what Frank Lloyd Wright calls “an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen,” Anne keeps us alert, on our toes, and bringing our very best each day. “I love working with bright people who are passionate about what they do,” she says.
When she’s not digging in the dirt, you might find Anne nurturing her love of reading at the local library.
