Camroad Properties now has Arizona commercial real estate along the Phoenix Metro Light Rail Line. The Phoenix commercial property is among one of many offerings of prime office space in Phoenix and throughout Arizona.

Pheonix, AZ (PRWEB) April 29, 2022 -- Camroad Properties is now offering office space and commercial real estate leases that are along the Phoenix Metro Light Rail line in the state of Arizona. A public transportation system with the capacity to carry 15,000 passengers per hour, the Phoenix Metro Light Rail and the Airport People Mover will have a terminal directly next to one of Camroad's many properties to lend another level of convenience to tenants of the building.

The Phoenix Metro Light Rail is a project with plans for an initial 20-mile line in the cities of Phoenix, Tempe, and Mesa already well-implemented. Future plans for the system include Scottsdale and downtown Glendale, expanding the reach of the Light Rail line to other metropolitan areas. Capable of traveling up to 55 mph and carrying 450 passengers in a single three-car train, the 20-mile line of the Phoenix Metro Light Rail is expected to be completed no later than 2008.

“The construction of a Phoenix Metro Light Rail stop and Sky Harbor Airport People Mover Terminal that will be within walking distance to one of our buildings is a testament to our central location,” said Judy Tucker, Property Manager. “Camroad Properties prides itself on its ability to offer businesses a variety of Phoenix-area office space choices that are central to economic activity. We are pleased that our clients will have such an all-around advantage with the Light Rail, and pledge to continue in our mission to provide some of the most prestigious commercial property available in Arizona.”

The buildings are an average of no more than 15 years old and are continually being improved and renovated to remain on the leading edge of industry standards. The higher-than-average occupancy rates of Camroad commercial properties are a testament to the company's dedication to only the best in customer service and commercial real estate management.

Vehicle Routing and Scheduling – The Next Generation

After almost three decades there has at last been a major innovation in computerised vehicle scheduling and routing. UK company DPS International, has produced an internet based ASP scheduling service which can be used from any computer, anywhere at anytime.

(PRWEB) April 28, 2022 -- Many companies have benefited from cost and resource savings by using computerised vehicle routing and scheduling over the last three decades. However, for several reasons, the majority of companies have not yet taken up this fundamental aid to transport efficiency.

UK company, DPS International, has now created and released the next generation of routing systems – an internet or intranet based system – which overcomes the reluctance which these companies have shown to employing such a system. This radical new offering is logixcentral
www.logixcentral.com).

Paul Palmer, Chairman of DPS International (www.dps-int.com) – a company he founded almost a quarter of a century ago to develop transport planning and operational systems - is convinced that logixcentral will overcome the perceived problems of companies who have shied away from routing systems in the past.

Mr Palmer said “Most providers of scheduling and routing software have been putting their developments into peripheral issues around their solutions. The underlying algorithms have been established for some time and effort has been concentrated on making systems more user friendly, improving mapping capabilities and tweaking parameters. The time has now arrived for a major review of solutions in the lights of some companies’ reluctance to accept solutions which have a proven track record of resource reduction.

“The main reluctance is caused by two issues. Firstly, for smaller companies the cost of an in-house system is perceived as too high; secondly, larger companies found the need to buy multiple licences could be expensive from some companies, while at the same time this approach caused lack of flexibility because some solution suppliers also controlled access with dongles and security keys. These issues are completely overcome by logixcentral” Mr Palmer said.

“We are providing an ASP (Application Service Provider) service so that the smaller companies, including those with a small number of vehicles, can now access logixcentral via the internet and use the system on a pay-as-you go basis. There is no need for an in-house system and no need for a licence. Because logixcentral is based on our long established market leading LogiX family of routing and scheduling products, the customer can expect a rapid return on investment.”

The same product used in a different way can also solve the issues raised by large companies with a need for multiple copies. “For these companies, such as logistics service providers and 3PLs with many accounts to manage nationally and even internationally, the obvious solution is for logixcentral to sit on their own intranet. We will reach an agreement for the number of user accounts and these can be accessed from anywhere in the company – not tied to one or a few depots” he said.

But there is a further application for an intranet version which could assist very small vehicle operators. “There are several trade federations representing a large number of small operators, sometimes with just a handful of vehicles. We are talking to some of them to enable them to take logixcentral onto their federation intranet and offer a commercial service directly to their members. This way everyone benefits, but in particular the very small operator, for whom this sort of technology was always beyond their reach, will win.”

“As far as we are aware we are the only company providing the full range of options for vehicle scheduling and routing” he added. “The choice we offer includes a range of applications for planning and scheduling, including mapping software for most major industrial countries. The solutions are available as an in-house licence, an ASP pay as you go offering, a corporate intranet version and as a service through trade federations.”

Barcoding Inc. on Seventh Annual ICIC – Inc. Magazine Inner City 100

Barcoding Inc. is ranked 11th on the list of the fastest growing inner-city companies in America

Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 25, 2022 -- Today, the 2005 ICIC-Inc Magazine Inner City 100 were released, and Barcoding Inc. is ranked 11th on the list of the fastest growing inner-city companies in America.

The list, a ranking of 100 of the fastest-growing businesses in inner city areas around the country, reveals that virtually all of these companies are profitable and planning to expand their workforces. The 2005 Inner City 100 showed an astounding CAGR of 63 percent and an average annual growth of 827 percent between 1999 and 2003, compared with an average of 716 percent for all companies appearing on the Inner City 100 since its inception in 1999. This year’s list was culled from more than 4,500 nominations in 150 cities. These companies have created almost 9,600 new jobs in the past five years.

Merrill Lynch, the international financial management and business advisory services company, returns for the 3rd year as national sponsor of the program.

"Our partnership with ICIC and sponsorship of this year's Inner City 100 event gives Merrill Lynch a unique opportunity to recognize and support the vitality, creativity and leadership of these fast growing inner city companies," says John C. Minter, Jr., First Vice President and National Sales Director, Merrill Lynch Business Financial Services. "These companies embody the very best of American business."

Fifty-eight cities are represented on the final list. Chicago, Detroit and Denver have the most winners with five apiece. The list represents the leading edge of a new approach to America’s urban revitalization – one that relies not on charity but on the competitive advantages of inner cities. The Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC) has been studying the economic condition of the largest 100 American cities and is working to revitalize inner cities across the country.

The 2005 Inner City 100 winners are attending the Inner City 100 Summit in Boston for a two-day event featuring seminars for Inner City 100 owners and managers at Harvard Business School, a reception at Fenway Park, and culminating in a gala awards dinner, where more than 1,000 guests are expected.

“Despite perceptions to the contrary, our research and work has continually shown that locating all or part of one’s business in an inner city gives you inherent advantages – from workforce diversity and availability to proximity to transportation nodes and downtown,” said Michael E. Porter, a Harvard Business School professor who founded ICIC in 1994. “By choosing to grow businesses in America’s inner cities, the owners of these businesses are transforming urban landscapes across the nation.”

Highlights of the 2005 Inner City 100 list include:

* Thirty-one percent of the companies on the list are minority-owned (compared with 11 percent nationally) and 18 percent are owned by women;
* Twenty-nine percent said recruiting qualified employees was one of the top factors limiting growth;
* When it came to raising capital, 45 percent of companies reported some difficulty in doing so. In turn, 89 percent used personal assets to start their business;
* Forty percent of company employees live in the inner city, including 38 percent of all “rank and file” employees and 10 percent of all senior management;
* Seventy-two percent of companies lease their location, rather than own;
* The average age of a CEO at the time their company was founded was 34; 53 percent of all CEOs have completed at least four years of college; and 78 percent live or have lived in an inner city;
* On average, CEOs owned 62 percent of their companies, while outside investors averaged 10 percent ownership

The record number of nominations received this year was largely due to the Inner City 100 National Program Sponsor Merrill Lynch and nominating partners such as U.S. Conference of Mayors, New America Alliance, National Women’s Business Council, and National Association of Manufacturers.

“We have learned from the Inner City 100 CEOs and employees that success is more certain when you reverse thinking from addressing deficits in the community to building upon its assets,” said Dorothy A. Terrell, president and CEO of ICIC. “Our partnership with Merrill Lynch will significantly enhance ICIC's capacity to find and celebrate the impact of the company’s success on the neighborhoods where it does business.”

Editor’s note
The Inner City 100 winners are based in 58 cities. Inner City 100 companies were selected from a pool of over 4,500 new nominations including 500 from Merrill Lynch and 600 from Mayors’ offices. These companies were nominated from 150 cities compared. Criteria for the award include having at least 51 percent of operations located in economically distressed urban areas; having sales of at least $150,000 in 1999 and at least $1 million in 2003. Average annual sales for the 100 companies in 2003 was in excess of $21 million. Collectively, sales totaled more than $2.2 billion.

About Initiative for a Competitive Inner City
The Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC) is a national not-for-profit organization founded in 1994 by Harvard Business School professor Michael E. Porter to promote a market-based approach and cutting-edge solutions for inner-city revitalization.

R.S. Express Upgrades Its Customs Brokerage and Freight Forwarding System With Integrated Software from QuestaWeb

RS Express installs the latest version of QuestaWeb’s web-native suite of integrated software solutions to upgrade its Customs brokerage and freight forwarding system.

Westfield, NJ (PRWEB) April 25, 2022 -– QuestaWeb, Inc., a premier provider of integrated import and export management software solutions, today announced that R.S. Express, Inc. has successfully upgraded its customhouse brokerage and freight forwarding system with the latest version of QuestaWeb’s integrated suite of web-native software solutions.

"The recognition by such quality companies like R.S. Express that our solutions can help bring down costs and improve operational and customer service efficiencies is a strongest testament to the value of the systems we build.

Road Hauliers Should Look at Underlying Causes of Rising Oil Prices

Road hauliers, farmers, construction workers and taxi-drivers are being called upon to look at the underlying causes of rising oil prices as the threat of a repeat of the November 2000 fuel protests, which almost brought the United Kingdom to a halt, re-emerges.

(PRWEB) April 24, 2022 -- Road hauliers, farmers, construction workers and taxi-drivers are being called upon to look at the underlying causes of rising oil prices as the threat of a repeat of the November 2000 fuel protests, which almost brought the United Kingdom to a halt, re-emerges.


With fuel prices continuing to increase there is tremendous financial pressure on heavily oil-dependent industries such as road hauliers, farmers, construction workers and taxi-drivers, and they are calling for a drop in fuel duty, said to be the highest in the world. "We desperately need some kind of fuel stabilisation formula which would result in tax levels on fuel being reduced as world oil prices increase," said Roger King, Chief Executive of the Road Hauliers Association.

However, PowerSwitch.org.uk, a nationwide grassroots campaign dedicated to raising awareness and discussion of the imminent peak and consequent decline of global oil production, is asking those industries heavily dependent on oil to look at the underlying causes of rising oil prices. The underlying cause is the incredible surge in world demand of recent years and also the high possibility that global oil production will peak sometime between now and 2010 - with the recent Megaprojects report by Chris Skrebowski of Petroleum Review making a clear case for 2007.

As much as the levels of fuel duty hurt the industries, it is necessary as a mechanism to convince people to change their oil-dependent lifestyles. Already, the signs are there that our oil needs cannot be met, and that the shortfall can only get worse.

With the world soon facing permanent declining oil supply, it is clear that we should begin planning now how to operate a society with less oil. There are many options for this, including more efficient vehicles, efficient distribution planning and reducing the distance needed to transport products such as food by, for example, decreasing dependency on long-distance food imports.

An environmental alliance told The Chancellor in June 2004 that the Government should put the need to tackle climate change and reduce oil dependence first and go on the offensive so as to explain the role of road transport in climate change.

"In many ways, a fuel protest could be a good thing," said James Howard of PowerSwitch.org.uk. " Our dependence on fossil fuels is not being discouraged and, on the one hand, it is causing climate change and, on the other, we are ignoring the opportunity to prepare for a world with less oil and with higher oil prices. Fuel protests could spark a crisis similar to that of 2000 that would create an environment for public debate over global oil depletion, climate change and our oil dependence."

However, road hauliers are only in competition with themselves. Their competitors are not getting a better tax deal than they are. Hauliers can raise their prices and, yes, in the long run this may reduce the total amount of business available to them but, ultimately, there simply has to be less haulage. The sooner the hauliers face up to this reality, the easier it will be to cope with the change.

IBP Corporation Inc's Executive Management Team Authorizes the Early Release of ltcquickbid.com in Response to the Recent Press Release by GMA

The Executive Managment Team of IBP Corporation inc has authorized the early release of www.LTCquickbid.com. This Free, web based application, provides corporate shippers the ability to reduce their cost of transportation by utilizing Semi Tractor and Trailers that would normally be Deadheading.

(PRWEB) April 22, 2022 -- The Executive Management of IBP Corporation has authorized the early release of www.ltcquickbid.com in response to a recent press release by Grocery Manufacturers of America.

Triggering this early release were some of the topics of discussion during the recent conference held in Florida by Grocery Manufacturers of America. Several issues concerning utilization of "Deadhead Trailers" and the need to reduce the cost of transportation. The following statements were included in the press release issued by GMA after this conference.

Transportation
Carriers, retailers and manufacturers should work together to utilize the "untapped capacity" of deadhead trailers, regardless of the name on the side of the truck. Among the cost-saving options discussed, this idea was one that had the universal approval of supply chain executives from Wegmans Food Markets, ConAgra Foods, Welch Foods, Inc., and Total Logistics Control. Rick Blasgen of ConAgra said partnering across industries to utilize empty trailers would result in actual savings for the industry, especially in light of the driver shortage, increasing fuel costs and the finite capacity of the trucking industry.

Grocery Manufacturers of America is the world's largest association of food, beverage and consumer product companies. Led by a board of 42 Chief Executive Officers, GMA applies legal, scientific and political expertise from its more than 140 member companies to vital public policy issues affecting its membership. The association also leads efforts to increase productivity, efficiency and growth in the food, beverage and consumer products industry. With U.S. sales of more than $500 billion, GMA members employ more than 2.5 million workers in all 50 states.

Additional information on this press release can be found at: http://www.gmabrands.org/news/docs/NewsRelease.cfm?DocID=1488

IBP Corporation has been in Beta testing with ltcquickbid.com for the last six months and had planned on releasing this web application in June. This date has now been moved up to May 1st, 2005.

In a phone conversation with Cheryl Ballard, Director of Professional Services on April 20th 2005, the following statement was made "In effort to assist manufactures in reducing their shipping cost while increasing the revenues earned by transportation companies that are having to deal with increasing fuel surcharges on non revenue producing "DeadHead Miles" The Executive Management team has authorized the early release of www.ltcquickbid.com and the Free distribution of this Logistics Tool to all members of Grocery Manufacturers of America, GMA." Ms. Ballard also emphasized the fact that this web based application reduces the man hours spend by transportation managers obtaining quotes. According to Ms. Ballard, www.ltcquickbid.com allows the shipper to go on-line, fill out one form and have transportation companies submitting bids on the site. The days of hundreds of phone calls to find a trailer going the same direction are gone. www.ltcquickbid.com is a software property of IBP Corporation Inc.

Underwater Robot Keeps Divers Safe, Captures Detailed Video During Caribbean Refinery Inspection - ROV Assists Completing the Mission with Minimum Additional Cost

Ocean and Coastal Consultants, Inc. (OCC – ( http://www.ocean-coastal.com/ ) of Trumbull, CT is a recognized industry leader in civil, structural, coastal, and geotechnical engineering for waterfront structures. When tasked with inspecting an offloading pier at a Caribbean Refinery early this year, they started with standard Engineer-Diver techniques. However, due to safety concerns, making use of the Engineer-Divers was not possible.

Exton, PA (PRWEB) April 20, 2022 -- Ocean and Coastal Consultants, Inc. (OCC – ( http://www.ocean-coastal.com/ ) of Trumbull, CT is a recognized industry leader in civil, structural, coastal, and geotechnical engineering for waterfront structures. When tasked with inspecting an offloading pier at a Caribbean Refinery early this year, they started with standard Engineer-Diver techniques. However, due to safety concerns, making use of the Engineer-Divers was not possible.


Electronic Sales of New England (ESNE - http://www.esalesne.com/ ), a premier technology provider in nearby Old Saybrook, CT was tasked with finding a solution - fast. Mark Warren, a Principal of ESNE recommended a VideoRay (http://www.Videoray.com) Remotely Operated Vehicle for its portability, ease of use, and maneuverability in tight locations. He had a leased unit on the way to the site within 18 hours of getting the call.

Jeff Snyder of OCC was the engineer and ROV operator on site. He commented on the mission - "Despite the fact that we had a mid-level VideoRay - the Explorer model - and I had previously operated a Pro III model – I was able to get everything we really needed in a very short period of time.” We inspected almost the entire structure, penetrating through locations where divers could not have entered safely. We also inspected mooring dolphins away from the primary structure. When we had problems or questions, the VideoRay team talked us through them by phone."

To do the inspection, Jeff broke the structure into segments where the VideoRay was flown on the surface to a piling, where it submerged for the underwater inspection. A full video documentation was recorded. He was able to inspect 75-95% of the support beams and underside of the concrete deck and was able to determine the condition of the beams and concrete. He was also able to see a good sample of the "H" piles and the center beam to make their determinations about the structural integrity of the facility. Stan White, president of OCC commented further: "There's two aspects to doing a job like this right. One aspect is to understand what to look for, how problems develop and how they can be fixed - the engineering expertise our firm has worked years to develop. Another is stay on top of the right tools as they become available, and keep your people safe and productive.

The quick deployment of the VideoRay to solve a field discovered condition on this job is something we're proud of - and we're proud of Jeff for the way he pulled it off." Scott Bentley, the president of VideoRay, compared the development of ROV technology to the early years of computer development. "A popular misconception in the 1980s was that big computers were needed for 'big' computer jobs. Many people feel that way about ROVs - only big ROVs can do big jobs. We're now learning that smaller is better on inspection ROVs - VideoRays have the thrust, control, cameras, and accessories needed to inspect this site, which was very large and very complicated. Look for VideoRay to develop even more capable units in the near future."

Charlotte Staffing Firm Windward Partners' Shares Top Tips for Successful Staff Augmentation

All companies hope to augment their project teams with qualified people that work well and stay together. However, it's often easier said than done. Charlotte, NC staffing company Windward Partners shares their top tips for getting it right.

(PRWEB) April 18, 2022 -- All companies hope to augment their project teams with qualified people that work well and stay together. However, it's often easier said than done. Companies begin with their schedule for yearly projects, assigning in-house resources for planning and development. Each project has room for additional resource allocation, but when the time comes, companies scramble to find the right fit. And as the project approaches completion, knowledge transfer from contractors to client is essential.

Charlotte, NC-based staffing company Windward Partners offers the following advice on shoring up your staff augmentation process:

Defining The Need
Before you start looking for people to meet your resource allocation challenges, start by thoroughly defining the need. Create a set of job specifications. Don't confuse job specifications with job descriptions. Job descriptions are used to bring structure to the organization and to establish salary ranges. Job specifications evaluate the organizational needs that justify filling the position define the position's specific functions, duties, and responsibilities define the characteristics a person would need to be successful in the position. Creating a set of job specifications prior to beginning your search will help you focus on the right questions to ask, communicate the job and project needs better, and create the foundation for setting the new employee's performance objectives.

Finding Candidates
All of the preparation in the world is no good without candidates to interview. When it's time to go looking for people, the first thought in most people's mind is "run an ad." And although advertising can, at times, be effective, it is not always the best course. Less than 5% of people who respond to ads actually have the qualifications that the ad asked for in the first place.

Statistics show that most people get hired as a result of knowing somebody who knows somebody, etc. In the last couple of years, there has also been a dramatic increase in the number of Internet resources used to identify candidates. In general, there are 4 ways we use the Internet to find candidates: job boards, resume databases, news groups and our corporate website. We also work through several professional organizations and our own personal networks. With over twenty years' experience, Windward Partners has an extensive network of personal contacts to pull from. The goal is to find as many qualified candidates as possible to consider for your opening. In your search, leave no stone unturned.

Efficient and Effective Interviewing
A person's ability to perform is demonstrated by his or her behavior. The key is not what a candidate knows about a process or discipline. The key is how well the candidate is able to apply his or her knowledge and skills in a specific set of circumstances. To predict an individual's potential for success, we examine their past behaviors. In the interview game, one thing is true: past behavior is the best predictor of future success.

The value of having a written set of job specifications is that they can now become the basis for preparing interview questions. Windward's approach formulates open-ended questions that encourage a candidate to describe specific situations, experiences, or tasks as they relate to the requirements of the job.

Background Checks
Some estimates indicate that more than 25% of all job applicants exaggerate or misstate their educational and/or employment qualifications on their resumes. All companies are potentially subject to third-party liability litigation. Third-party liability exists when an employee of a company, during the course of his or her duties, injures someone outside of the company. If it can shown that the company knew or should have known that the employee might potentially cause the injury, the company can be held civilly liable for the injury.

Windward Partners' approach builds one cohesive team that works across multiple projects, creating a smooth process for the client and strong knowledge transfer for their projects. This unique approach ensures consistent practices, reduced onboard times, and accelerated quality and effectiveness for your in-house teams.

The center will serve as a hub for all our future Sunshine Pack & Ship stores.”

Sunshine Pack & Ship outlets offer a variety of services, including; domestic and international packing, crating and shipping; large freight handling; mailbox rental and mail forwarding services; as well as office supplies, packing supplies, and internet selling services such as eBay auction hosting.

We also have the capability to globally ship via land, sea, or air, any size or weight package. What really sets Sunshine Pack & Ship apart from the competition, is that we can ship large, valuable items that some other companies are unwilling to handle.”

Get The Customers You Want From The Customers You Have!

New testimonial request tool allows businesses to automate word of mouth marketing. Don't just advertise on the yellow pages or on the local newspaper - use KudosBoard - a new web-based software application that allow small businesses, online retailers and/or service providers (such as realtors, restaurants, landscapers, plumbers, day spas, etc) to automate the ability for their clients to provide positive testimonials and to recommend them to their friends.

(PRWEB) April 12, 2022 -- Increase Your Small Business Sales By Automating The Testimonial Request Process And Then Maximizing Customer-To-Friend Referrals.

Introducing KudosBoard: First-of-its-kind tool that automates word of mouth reputation marketing.

The question most often asked by small business owners is "How do you market your business on a limited budget but with great results?". The importance of finding the answer to this question can mean the difference between growing sales and gaining new customers or closing shop.

The first thing that comes to mind for most small businesses is advertising on the Yellow Pages or on the local newspapers. While these are clearly necessary marketing channels, an option that most owners take for granted is Word Of Mouth Marketing. Most people already intuitively know that customer referrals are the greatest and most effective way that new customers are found.

In fact, word of mouth marketing is typically responsible for 50% of your current new business. Knowing this, many small business owners are now realizing how important it is to harness the power of their existing clients.

Importantly, why not provide your existing clients with the tools they need to recommend you to their friends even more effectively? Why not gather testimonials from as many of your past clients as you can. Plus, why not give your clients the tools to share their testimonials with friends. Finally, why not motivate referrals with special charity donation tools even more?

How can this be achieved? By implementing successful customer referral program tools that enable your existing customer base - your greatest asset - to recommend you to their friends and to provide you with testimonials for your small business.

New Inventory Control Add-On for ERP Systems

IntelliTrack Application Interface adds Barcode Inventory Control to any ERP system or Accounting Package

Hunt Valley, MD (PRWEB) April 12, 2022 -- A new application interface (API) is now available from IntelliTrack Inc., the leading manufacturer of affordable bar code and RFID tracking software. IntelliTrack API integrates IntelliTrack products with enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems and accounting packages, to provide barcode scanning, barcode printing, inventory control and wireless mobility.

IntelliTrack API uses XML to synchronize application data between IntelliTrack software and the SQL, text or Oracle back-end of an ERP system or accounting package. The API continuously looks for staged data and events. When something changes on either the ERP/accounting side, or the warehouse side, API recognizes the changes, and synchronizes the data using customer-defined business rules.

“We have added our Inventory Shipping, Receiving and Picking (ISRP) program to Quickbooks. You can have a real strong inventory control system for a small business that does not cost a lot of money,” said James Budniakiewicz, president of IntelliTrack.

“You can also use API to integrate our Warehouse Management System (WMS) Professional edition with robust ERP and MRP systems, such as Datapro, Great Plains, MAS200, or SAP.” Budniakiewicz said. “You can even integrate IntelliTrack WMS Professional with Oracle Small Business Suite or Oracle Manufacturing.”

IntelliTrack ISRP is a scaled down version of IntelliTrack WMS. Both systems help companies large and small to keep track of their warehouse inventory. ISRP and WMS use a SQL database to manage data collected from mobile computers and handheld terminals. With ISRP, data is collected in batch mode, and synchronized with the database when the handheld device is returned to its serial or Ethernet cradle. WMS Professional provides real time communication via a wireless (Wi-Fi) network between the mobile devices and central database. Both products provide the ability to scan and print barcode labels, and perform inventory transactions such as shipping, receiving, picking and putting away.

“Anyone who is selling an ERP system can use our API to build a custom plug-in to interface their product with IntelliTrack. Their system will then have robust warehouse management capabilities, including barcode scanning, barcode printing, and wireless communication with mobile devices. IntelliTrack runs on all major brands of handheld computers, so this is a quick path to success for any ERP vendor,” Budniakiewicz said.

About IntelliTrack, Inc.
IntelliTrack develops bar code and RFID software for business and government applications. In addition to off-the-shelf products, IntelliTrack produces custom data collection software. IntelliTrack software runs on mobile computers from Symbol Technologies, PSC, Intermec, Socket, LXE, Hand Held Products (HHP), American Microsystems (AML), and Unitech.

Dr Eli Goldratt, Best Selling Business Author, in Bogota, Colombia; 24 Executives Attending Apply for free Viable Vision Consulting

Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt, author of the international best-selling business book “The Goal” made an unrefusable offer to CEO, Presidents, and Business Owners attending the April 5th Viable Vision Offer Event in Bogota. His offer – apply for a “Viable Vision” and he will send someone to collect the data from your company, devise your Viable Vision, then spend 2 hours discussing YOUR company and Viable Vision for no additional charge. No strings, the only catch was that the top executive had to be in attendance to be eligible for the free vision work. Twenty-four executives out of the approximately 40 that were in attendance took Dr Goldratt up on his offer before leaving the event. Goldratt expects that several more applications will be received in the coming weeks as executives have an opportunity to discuss the concepts with their teams.

Bogota, Columbia (PRWEB) April 8, 2022 -- Goldratt defines a Viable Vision as the specific strategy and tactics to turn a company’s current sales level into their profit level within 4 years. The Viable Vision Offer Event is designed for CEOs, CFOs, COOs, Presidents, and Business Owners who are looking for substantial bottom-line growth and would like the insight and direction of one of the world’s leading business experts. Where most seminars leave you to figure out how the content applies to your specific situation, Dr Goldratt is offering to do just that at no additional cost.


During the Viable Vision Offer Event Goldratt outlined the process, demonstrated the outstanding results achieved, and offered to develop their Viable Vision at no additional charge. Of the 100 companies that have previously applied for Goldratt’s Viable Vision Offer, over 70 of them have embarked on this process. These 70 companies range in sales from $1 million to several billion. Goldratt speculates that the reason so many companies decide to continue in the process after the FREE vision work, is due to the fact that over 90% of Goldratt Consulting’s fees are based on results. If the client doesn’t get the results, they don’t pay.

Worldwide, approximately 5,000 companies or 6% of firms use the Theory of Constraints. Over 4 million copies of Dr Goldratt’s book, “The Goal” have been sold and it is the best selling business book in the world. The Viable Vision Offer Event is the answer to – What’s next?

Eli Goldratt is an educator, author, physicist, philosopher, and business leader, obtaining his Bachelor of Science degree from Tel Aviv University and his Masters of Science, and Doctorate of Philosophy from Bar-Ilan University. He has worked with many of the world's largest corporations and holds patents in a number of areas ranging from medical devices to drip irrigation and temperature sensors. He has been described by Fortune as a “guru to industry” and by Business Week as a genius. He is an educator, author, scientist, philosopher, and business leader. But he is, first and foremost, a thinker who provokes others to think. Often characterized as unconventional, stimulating, and “a slayer of sacred cows,” Dr. Goldratt has created this Viable Vision offer to expand the reach of his powerful concepts to small and mid-sized companies.

Up coming Viable Vision Offer Events are as follows:
Chicago, Illinois USA on April 8, 2022
Amsterdam, the Netherlands on April 19, 2022
Kiev, Ukraine on April 21, 2022
Other countries on the 2005 tour include: China, Czech Republic, India, and Brazil.

Thrive Technologies Signs National Marketing Agreement with $3 Billion PRO Group

$3 billion consortium of Do-It-Yourself products will co-market Thrive’s inventory software to its large membership of distributors and retailers. Thrive's unique software helps companies in the competitive distribution space increase profits and sales by at least 15%.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 6, 2022 -- Thrive Technologies, Inc., an Atlanta-based software company that helps distribution intensive companies improve their inventory performance, announced today that they have entered into a national marketing agreement with PRO Group, Inc. PRO Group has chosen Thrive as a key value-added services partner, and will help to market Thrive’s product to its member companies.

PRO Group also has a retail network of 2000 retailers in North America, which it offers professionally managed marketing, promotional and branding services under programs such as PRO Hardware, FARM◊MART, GardenMaster, and Golden-Link.

Thrive customers typically reduce their inventory as a percentage of revenues by at least 15%.

“We are extremely pleased to partner with Thrive. Our members are in the business of having products in stock that their customers want, and they are looking for systems that will help them do that while improving their profits,” said Steve Synnott, President/COO of PRO Group. “Thrive’s software is server based, providing a lower cost of ownership than competitive systems, and will help our members achieve more in-stocks and higher profits.”

The Smithsonian’s National Design Museum to Spotlight Atair Aerospace’s Composite Parafoil as Part of Its “Extreme Textiles” Exhibition

The Smithsonian has selected Atair Aerospace’s (Atair AS) Composite Parafoil for display opposite the Wright Brothers’ 1902 flyer to contrast early to state-of-the-art textiles used in aviation. The exhibit entitled, “Extreme Textiles: Designing for High Performance” will be on view April 8, 2022 through October 30, 2021 at the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York City.

Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) April 5, 2022 -- The Smithsonian has selected Atair Aerospace’s (Atair AS) Composite Parafoil for display opposite the Wright Brothers’ 1902 flyer. This display will contrast early to state-of-the-art textiles used in aviation.

Atair AS’s ‘Cobalt’ composite parafoil is being displayed as part of the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum exhibit, “Extreme Textiles: Designing for High Performance.” Atair AS’s parafoils represents the state of the art in gliding parachute design. Also displayed will be a “Birdman Suit” constructed using Atair AS’s non-woven composite textiles and inventive manufacturing techniques.

Led by one of New York City’s own, Daniel Preston, Atair AS is revolutionizing the parachute industry with the development of composite textiles and manufacturing techniques. Atair AS is using its Composite Parachute Technology™ (CPT) to develop highly efficient, light weight parafoils with applications of great social consequence. Atair AS’s CPT is being implemented on autonomously guided parafoils for resupply, and unmanned aerial vehicles for surveillance in IRAQ.

Atair AS’s autonomously guided parafoil systems were developed for the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Center (NSC) to transition the Army’s current WWII-era low altitude, low accuracy, high vulnerability airdrop practices into the 21st Century. Existing airdrop methods expose air and ground troops to threat from insurgents’ inexpensive shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles (SAMs). Guided parafoil systems can be likened to a smart bomb but for safely delivering cargo. Atair AS’s systems can be air dropped at up to 35,000 ft., autonomously glide over 30 miles, and land cargo within 150 ft. of a target—thus saving lives and protecting assets. Cargo for ground and special operations forces includes food and water, medical supplies, fuel, munitions and other critical battlefield payloads.

In conjunction with the exhibit, Preston will speak on Atair AS’s enabling technologies during the Museum’s May 12 symposium at Rockefeller University entitled, “Extreme Textiles: The Space Between Science, Technology and Design.”

“Extreme Textiles: Designing for High Performance” will be on view April 8, 2022 through October 30, 2005. For further information on the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum visit www.cooperhewitt.org.

Atair AS is a Brooklyn-based defense contractor dedicated to modernizing military and industrial airdrop techniques through its range of innovative autonomously guided parachute systems, UAVs, and composite materials. Atair AS is under contract with the U.S. Army/DoD to continue developing state-of-the-art autonomous GPS and INS guided parafoil/parachute systems.

Sinotrading, an American Owned and Operated Import/Export (Sourcing) Company, Will Begin Training Translators, Web Developers and Company Executives From Chinese Manufacturing Companies

How to market to American companies thorugh the Internet in the complex world of e-commerce will be the seminar topic for Chinese company executives.

(PRWEB) April 1, 2022 -- Sinotrading.us, an American owned and operated import/export (sourcing) company, will begin training translators, web developers and company executives from Chinese manufacturing companies how to market in the complex world of e-commerce. Attendance at the first seminar will be limited to the first 50 companies that request a space.

OTS Logistics Group Ramps up Global Presence

The OTS Logistics group's plan to expand unfolds

(PRWEB) April 1, 2022 -- In a move that took the ocean freight market by surprise, OTS Logistics Group Limited announced in Hong Kong on the 19th of March that it would commence managing the international agency network of market leading NVOCC, NACA Logistics (USA) Inc. The arrangement is effective immediately and will substantially enhance the global presence of OTS Logistics Group on a worldwide basis by extending its existing access to point to point service in over 300 trade lanes.

“The geographical scope of our coverage is now unprecedented”, Mr. Owen Glenn, Chairman of the group, said in announcing the new arrangements. “This arrangement gives us trade volumes of over 200,000 TEU of ocean freight on a global basis, pre-carriage and on-forwarding from virtually any point to any point in the world, 177 offices and agencies worldwide and representation in over 105 countries.”

Asked if this was the first step in a rumored public listing, Mr. Glenn replied, “We generally ignore rumors that relate to our business plans. It is no secret that we have a 27 year history of success - obviously this attracts investor interest. We have had some strong interest from parties that see this as an eventual listing opportunity but my answer is the same - we always examine options. Right now we are heavily focused on developments in China.”

The company has implemented strategy to establish a stronger presence in China with the acquisition of a Class A license in Zhuhai, China through another member of the group, Vanguard Logistics (HK). A “Global Resource Center” is also being set up in Zhuhai to handle the growth the group is experiencing and the group has relocated senior management to the region.

“If one connects the dots, looks at our commitment, looks at our now expanded network and our technology investments they can see what we have to offer”, Mr. Glenn said. “We are stitching together a powerhouse in global logistics, piece by piece. We have a billion dollar turnover in our sights.”
