My desk at Burroughs - circa1985


Burroughs_circa1988, originally uploaded by shersteve.

I started with Burroughs in 1982 and moved up to supervisor in either 1984 or '85. I recall this being the Supervisor desk at the Respond Center in the Springfield, NJ office.

The screen on the right was an MT983 (I think) to our B1900 system running the RESPOND application. The center screen was our ROLM call system supervisor view. RESPOND was the application used for taking service requests and dispatching the field engineers. It recorded the details, provided customer and engineering reports, parts usage, etc.

Ah, those were the days.
