About Glass Act

The Butler Mug Holding System was developed in the early 90’s by Glass Act, a Texas company that specializes in precision machining work. The objective was to develop a drinking fluid device for the power sports industry that actually worked.

There were two design criteria. The first was functional. The device had to be nearly indestructible and not let the beverage container bounce out of the holding device when rough conditions were encountered, as so often is the case on power sports vehicles. The second criteria was ease of use. The device had to meet the first criteria of stability, but also had to allow easy use of the beverage container while the vehicle was in motion.

The result was the development of the patented Butler Compression Ring. The ring holds a tapered mug at a point near the center of gravity. When vibration occurs due to rough conditions or simply the running of a power sports vehicle, gravity pulls the mug down in the ring. As the tapered mug lowers, the ring is expanded causing a wedging effect on the mug. This simulates the user holding on to the mug, in rough conditions, to prevent its loss.

But, in the Butler’s case, the device does it for the user, thus allowing the user to keep both hands on the vehicle, substantially increasing the safety of the event. When the rough conditions subside, the mug is squeezed upward, back to a position of equilibrium depending on the weight of the mug and fluid at that time. This even happens with a mug that is empty.

The various types of bracketing available for the Butler exist only to provide mounting capability for the different types of vehicles that would be considered for using the device. The bracketing has to be strong enough so that the wedging effect of the ring is preserved and still allow for the easy use of the mug. Motorcycles, ATVs, RTVs, Boats, Trucks, Tractors, Trains, Planes, Road Working, and Farm vehicles have all used this system successfully.

How Does WizardsWebs Design Help Glass Act?

In order for a business to succeed in a crowded market, it needs to differentiate from competition. Wizards Webs Design specializes in serving businesses that value having their website designer stick around to keep their website updated, optimized, and see that the website ranks as high as possible on search engines. Glass Act sees the value in those services.

Why don’t all website developers do that? Here is the story of how that came to be.

In the early days of the internet, businesses just needed an online presence or business card to replace the disappearing yellow pages. They had a website built and the project was over. Those sites didn’t need changing unless the business moved or got a new phone number. Website developers became accustomed to knocking these out and moving on to the next client. It was not unusual for businesses to have difficulty finding the guy that built their website to make changes. When they did find him, he was often too busy working on his next design project to be interested in helping them.

The Digital Revolution

We have used print media for generations. As we move deeper into the information age, consumers have increasingly become accustomed to turning to the internet for everything. Whatever they need they Google or ask Alexa. They expect the latest information to be on a company website. If they find missing, incomplete or out of date information they quickly move on. Business is learning that they need to provide more content and update it as quickly as it changes if they want to be in the game.

At the same time, websites are now more sophisticated and database driven. They often utilize 20-30 plugins that need to be updated weekly. Websites now have a long list of needs including security, changes in search ranking, backups, page speed, image optimization, schema, mobile view checks by Google, link checking, new blog posts, new products, new pictures, schedule changes, events, videos, social media, etc. and the list goes on and on.

Webmasters Needed

It has become apparent to Glass Act that businesses, from the smallest to the largest, now need a “webmaster” as they used to be called to take care of content changes, the myriad of technical needs, and key monitoring and reporting. Large companies can hire someone and keep them on the staff. Smaller companies must turn to a service.

Most website designers are still chasing new projects and are not responsive to handling these services. Agencies that are willing to do the work either want to charge you more than hiring a webmaster would cost or are continuously trying to sell you a lot of services you don’t need. This describes the gap that WizardsWebs Design uses to differentiate from competition. Not only do we build great websites, we stay on job and take care of your website as if we were on your staff. We are responsive and affordable. That is our niche. That is how we differentiate ourselves to Glass Act.
