UK Online diamond jeweller DiamondGeezer.com seeks to fund incremental business growth via CrowdCube crowd funding exercise

London (PRWEB UK) 19 March 2015

Now looking to really exercise the capacity and scalability on which they have focussed and built over the past three years the family owned company is looking to secure between £250,000 and £750,000 through the crowdfunding platform Crowdcube to launch a specialist jewellery portal JewelleryJewelleryJewellery.com with the established DiamondGeezer.com as founder member and corner stone.

This is not a start-up, it is an established, profitable company that has completed all the research and development and purchased all the capital equipment required to enable and drive the business plan. That shows great commitment to and faith in the project by the company’s owners and means that all the funding is for sales and marketing, which should give investors a nice warm feeling, safe in the knowledge that this project will hit the ground running.

The company manufactures everything it sells; they are on the cutting edge of modern jewellery manufacturing with in house CAD Design, rapid prototyping and 3D printing. Their zero stock, just-in-time/always-on-time, fast delivery model provides huge commercial advantage, taking out a massive cost of expansion and providing a wonderful inbuilt defence against a downturn or market demand to swap product type or design. The model provides the flexibility to change what is being sold at a moment’s notice, without having to cut-throats and dilute earnings to clear any existing stocks. 247Soft, is the enabler, it’s what makes it happen and it’s a PCI compliant software platform developed in house over 12 years. It manages sales, material purchase, manufacturing control, order tracking, fulfilment and so much more. They wrote it, they own it.

We are a few days into their crowd funding exercise and the company reports a staggering demand for the full business plan but respects there are a lot of email exchanges, telephone calls, meetings and conversations to go before it achieves what the crowd funders call ‘traction’.

Village Realty Invests in Cutting-Edge Property Management Technology

Outer Banks, NC (PRWEB) March 18, 2015

In June 2014, Village Realty assembled a team of staff members to plan, process and manage the changeover from their long-used reservations system to V12.NET, the most advanced, comprehensive program available in property management. The implementation team worked together to analyze every corner of the business so that all aspects of the company were taken into consideration, ensuring a smooth transition. On-site training was provided to employees, helping them become proficient with the program so that when V12.NET went live in October 2014, they were very well prepared. The scheduling of the launch provides the company with ample time to become experts with the program before the 2015 rental season begins. The software switch promises to improve the accuracy of information sharing within the company, which will ultimately result in an improved experience for guests and homeowners.

“We had been using the old DOS-based software since our doors opened in 1993,” explained Jenny Myatt, Village Realty’s director of marketing. “It required many outside applications which allowed too much room for error. It had become very inefficient by today’s standards and it was definitely time for an update.” V12.NET is a web-based software that can be used anywhere there is an internet connection. This flexible, open access will enable separate departments to enter their reports within a centralized database, making information up-to-date and exact. In addition to improved data accuracy, there will also be much less paperwork required, optimizing efficiency at all stages of the rental process. The technology upgrade will also benefit homeowners eminently by offering comprehensive, intuitive analysis and detailed business reporting at their fingertips. The company has opted to invest in the maximum level of the software’s available packages, which encompasses all applicable interfaces, including credit card processing, packaging wizard, owner-link and keyless entry. “We are excited about the future flexibility and enhancements that this software will give our company and the ability to manage vacation homes more effectively,” adds Myatt.

Village Realty manages more than 500 Outer Banks vacation homes and is known for extraordinary customer service. There are two check-in offices: one in Nags Head and one in Corolla, NC, and both offer full service real estate services as well. Locally owned and managed, Village Realty has been in business for more than 20 years and was the first Outer Banks vacation rental company to provide bed linens and bath towels for every stay. Many homes are pet friendly and disability friendly accommodations are also available,

Local Veteran Kenneth Bartells Opens Fresh Coat of Olympia

Olympia, WA (PRWEB) March 10, 2015

Throughout the two-and-a-half decades Kenneth Bartells spent in the military, he earned a reputation as someone who looked out for his fellow man and put others first. Bartells is looking forward to bringing that same mentality to his new business, Fresh Coat of Olympia.

Fresh Coat of Olympia offers residential and commercial painting services including interior and exterior painting, wood staining and finishing, and other services for nearly every protective coating application. They use quality, environmentally safe materials and offer a 24/7 customer service center, online scheduling, in-home color design consultations, and detailed quotes. Bartells’ Fresh Coat Painters franchise serves Lacey, Olympia, Tumwater, DuPont, Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Yelm and the surrounding South Puget Sound communities.

Prior to opening Fresh Coat of Olympia, Bartells served in the Air Force for 24 years. He served multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and was awarded the Bronze Star for actions during an IED attack in Iraq.

“When I left the military, I was looking for a new opportunity that would allow me to have a positive impact on my community and have a career with an ethical company. I liked that Fresh Coat is highly rated by multiple veteran organizations and that, with their franchise system, I can be in a management role working with clients instead of on a ladder painting,” he said.

Fresh Coat is committed to quality products and services and the company offers a 3-3-3 customer service pledge, so calls will be answered by a live person within three minutes, a quote will be delivered within three days (customer schedule permitting) and the job will be started within three weeks. All Fresh Coat of Olympia employees are professional painters who are insured, trained and background checked.

“Fresh Coat of Olympia hires professional painters and we’re not some fly-by-night company. We take pride in our business and you can trust that your job will be done right the first time,” Bartells said. “As part of my personal mission, I’m looking forward to bringing on other veterans as painting apprentices. My goal is to give those veterans an opportunity to learn a skill while earning a fair wage. My hope is that they’ll stay with me long-term, but the point is to help them start a new career.”

“I’ll be looking out for my clients, just like I spent my military career looking out for my guys and my country. I go all in on any assignment or project. I’m looking forward to bringing that to my new business,” he added.

Bartells has been married to Bonnie for 21 years and the couple has an 11-year-old son Corbin.

Fresh Coat was founded in 2004 as part of Strategic Franchising Systems. In the last year, Fresh Coat has been included in the Bond’s Top 100 and named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 list. Fresh Coat is also part of the International Franchise Association, the Small Business Association’s Franchise Registry, VetFran and Minority Fran.

Medical Specialists

(PRWEB UK) 6 March 2015

Medical Specialists® Pharmacy are proud to support this year’s national No Smoking Day, which will be taking place on 11 March.

For those not aware of its origins, No Smoking Day is an annual campaign that has been running since Ash Wednesday in 1983, when it was known as ‘Quit for the Day’, although despite the name, it is obvious this one day is intended to be a sampler / springboard for a longer-term and more permanent quitting of smoking.

The campaign was initially led by a charity bearing the same name that operated in London with only four full-time staff, until it was then merged with the British Heart Foundation in 2011. The funds are provided by coalition of governmental and voluntary sector organisations looking to improve the nation’s health.

Each year there are an estimated one million smokers that use No Smoking Day to try and stop smoking. The No Smoking Day charity has previously claimed that about 1.5 million smokers have successfully managed to quit for good since its launch 32 years ago.

After experiencing a recent surge in the requests for smoking cessation treatment Champix, Medical Specialists® believe that this year, there could be potentially significantly more than just one million people trying to give up the cigarettes in Britain.

What the campaign doesn’t do is attempt to harass or force smokers into immediately stopping for good – the day is primarily for those smokers that want to quit, in addition to providing support prior to and after No Smoking Day, with the British Heart Foundation website offering information on national helplines, local stop smoking services and the chance to join a support forum.

The forum is an excellent way to get in touch with thousands of other fellow smokers looking to quit and lets people know they are not alone in their efforts to stub out. The forum is even moderated by ex-smokers that have successfully given up themselves.

As the name of the charity would suggest, the British Heart Foundation use their knowledge and resources to boost the public’s heart health, and provide information on the damage smoking does to the body, even detailing some of the toxic chemicals that smokers inhale with each passing cigarette – it certainly makes for grim reading.

The fact remains that smokers are at double the risk of suffering from a heart attack compared to people that have never smoked and smoking is the main cause of a multitude of cancers and lung disease.

Even with these health risks, some people still refuse to stop smoking. This could explain why last year the British Heart Foundation chose to reach out to smokers in other ways – namely highlighting the financial benefits of stopping smoking.

With the current financial climate, it is simply unfeasible to be regularly forking out £10 for a packet of cigarettes and skimp on food or even withhold paying bills.

The British Heart Foundation have even detailed what people could treat themselves to with the money saved from not buying cigarettes*.

For example, after…

1 Day – £8.50: two movie rentals / a new lipstick / download a new album

1 week – £59.50: a family cinema trip/ a pair of shoes / a meal for two

1 month – £255: a shopping spree / Premiership football tickets / a weekend break

3 months – £765

6 months – £1,530: a leather suite/ a home cinema / a top of the range bicycle

1 year – £3,102.50: a new kitchen / designer jewellery / holiday of a lifetime

*Figures based on a 20-a-day smoker paying £8.50 per packet of 20 cigarettes.

And if that wasn’t music to the ears of smokers, by quitting smoking they will earn extra pocket money on top of that already saved! Ex-smokers may now suddenly discover that life, home and car insurance are cheaper due to then being a non-smoker.

Medical Specialists® wish all smokers the best of luck for next weeks No Smoking Day. There is plenty of help at hand, from the British Heart Foundation’s ‘I want to quit’ page, their links to a forum and various nationwide stop smoking services, to smoking cessation treatment from Medical Specialists® like Champix, for a more longer term quitting strategy. This treatment can be obtained by an online consultation with one of our GMC-registered doctors, or by sending us a private prescription.

Getable Adds Features and Funding to Expand Its Equipment App Nationwide

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 25, 2015

Getable, the leading app for ordering and tracking construction equipment, announced today that it has raised five million dollars to expand its services nationwide. The Series A financing was led by The Social+Capital Partnership, a leading Silicon Valley venture capital firm that joined the company’s board of directors. The funding round also welcomed industry participation from individuals at Ghilotti Brothers, Inc., Pacific Structures, Zachary Construction, DPR Construction, and an investment from Darren Bechtel, a member of the Bechtel engineering and construction family and Managing Director of Brick & Mortar Ventures. Getable was honored as the first official investment for Brick & Mortar Ventures, a new fund investing in “technology for the built world” with construction as one of its core areas of focus.

“Mobile technologies are rapidly transforming old guard industries,” explains Darren Bechtel, Founder of Brick & Mortar Ventures. “Yet construction, which employs the single largest mobile workforce, has received relatively little attention and benefit from such technologies. Getable is leveraging mobile technology to bring efficiency and cost savings to construction teams by designing and delivering a beautifully intuitive software solution to better order, track, and manage heavy equipment — one of the top three costs on a job site. I’m thrilled to be involved as we scale this solution to be a de facto app for job sites globally.”

Along with its new financing, Getable announced that it is rolling out its services nationwide. Now, any contractor in the United States can download Getable’s free application to order, track and manage any piece of equipment from any supplier in the field – regardless of whether the equipment was originally ordered through Getable. This includes tracking company owned fleet which the American Rental Association estimates is approximately 50% of the equipment used on job sites. This update allows contractors to account for all the assets on a project to get a more accurate picture of running cost, equipment status, activity history, and location across job site inventory.

“Getable has become the go-to app for contractors to order equipment rentals, but this represents just a fraction of the total equipment physically on the job site,” shares Tim Hyer, CEO at Getable. “We want to be indispensable when it comes to any type of construction equipment — whether that equipment is sourced by Getable, or not. We’re thrilled to roll out the ability to log any equipment type, including company owned fleet, to contractors throughout the United States.”

The new version, released today, introduces new features that give contractors greater control over equipment decisions. Contractors can now use Getable to order directly from the suppliers they know and trust, down to the individual sales rep who can setup a user profile in Getable. This allows contractors to take advantage of existing relationships, negotiated pricing, and volume based incentives. In turn, suppliers can more efficiently connect with their existing customers, spending less time on the phone and more time growing their business.

“Relationships matter in construction,” explains Hyer. “Since job sites expect timely equipment deliveries, repairs and pick-ups, contractors depend heavily on the relationships they have with their supply partners. Getable now supports the contractor and supplier connections that exist in the offline world. If a contractor wants to order equipment from his favorite supplier rep, he can now find that rep and track the business he does with that rep, using Getable. If a contractor doesn’t have an existing relationship, or doesn’t have a preference for where a piece of equipment is sourced, he can always leverage Getable’s Supplier Network to place the order. We now support both experiences in one app.”

Today’s product upgrades, combined with the financing, help solidify Getable’s position as the industry-leading technology solution for construction equipment. The app has been developed with some of the largest national and regional civil, commercial and specialty contractors. Hyer expects strong growth with access to more resources and the guidance of its new board member, Ted Maidenberg, General Partner at The Social+Capital Partnership.

“We get excited when we see best-in-class, consumerized software being built for massive verticals like construction. In our research, general contractors raved about Getable and came to rely on it as their ‘mission control’ dashboard to manage their equipment — from the initial order to asset tracking to billing,” shares Maidenberg. “We are eager to help the team grow contractor mindshare to become the go-to construction equipment management tool.”



About Getable

Getable launched in 2010 to connect people with their favorite products on-demand, from trusted rental establishments. Getable serves the $ 41B construction rental market with mobile tools designed for construction professionals and rental equipment providers. With offices in San Francisco, California, Getable is a private company that is funded by prominent Silicon Valley investors.

Great Expectations Shares Best Practices for Engaging Students Through Technology

Norman, Okla. (PRWEB) February 04, 2015

As schools are increasingly fitted with new technology, the classroom atmosphere is changing. Tablets are replacing textbooks, interactive whiteboards are ousting chalkboards and software discs are going the way of the dinosaur. Amidst all of the change, however, there’s one constant: the pursuit of academic excellence and mutual respect.

Today at the Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA) Convention, experts from the non-profit foundation Great Expectations® shared best practices for fostering productive classrooms in the presence of increased technology integration. Great Expectations is a school transformation model that emphasizes a climate of mutual respect and academic excellence.

Instructors from Texas emphasized three key aspects of integrating Great Expectations practices into iPad classrooms:

Harness the excitement of new technology. Incorporating new technology, such as mobile applications, in everyday instruction can infuse excitement into classrooms. Use that excitement to nurture a love of learning and respect for others.
Empower students to take control of their learning with technology. Presentation technology and apps enable students to create projects and publish them for the whole class to see, fostering a sense of pride and ownership.
Provide timely feedback to encourage student growth. Education technology makes providing feedback nearly instantaneous. Take advantage by communicating regularly with students about their progress – move learning forward.

“Technology can sometimes distract from the basic tenets of healthy classroom management,” said Sarah Firsching, educator at Westlake Academy IB World School. “The tips we’re sharing today will help educators nurture respectful, supportive 21st century classrooms.”

The Great Expectations educator-training model is guided by six basic tenets and 17 classroom practices. The tenets and practices provide guidelines for program training and implementation and they serve as standards for evaluating Great Expectations schools. The basic tenets include: High expectations, teacher attitude and responsibility, building self-esteem, all children can learn, climate of mutual respect and teacher knowledge and skill.
