Gemological Institute of America (GIA)
Report Processing Printer Technican
From my IT background and my new found knowledge in GIA I have been able to utilize my strengths in attention to detail to maintain all the report processing printers to ensure their successful operation with our propriatary paper. I've learned to problem solve on the spot to lead my team in Report Processing by developing a series of systems to troubleshoot, fix, clean and log what solutions proved successful, and what was not as effective. Through thorough research and communication with outside vendors and meetings with advanced tech support, I have been able to successfully extend the printers' hardware from 10,000 reports printed to over 38,000. I have collectively documented all the necessary data that lead to our success and sent it to upper-management and other GIA branches to implement and replicate our achievements here in Carlsbad.
To ensure our continual success, I have created and maintained spreadsheets for printer components to keep track of our inventory and measure the frequency of changing materials to report to supervisors. In addition, I was in charge of testing a new set of HP printers to measure its compatibility with our proprietary paper. This is an essential step to discover better ways to save money and streamline the process of printing reports that represent GIA's reputation.
