freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Edupoint Educational Systems, a leading student information system solutions provider to the national K-12 market, has been selected to implement its GENESIS and GENESEA SIS solutions for the Las Cruces Public Schools. While the school district could have chosen to migrate to free software provided by the new owners of their existing eSIS system, a comprehensive study of all available options recommended the Edupoint purchase.”



A R T I C L E:

Edupoint™ Educational Systems, a leading student information system (SIS) solutions provider to the national K-12 market, has been selected to implement its GENESIS™ and GENESEA™ SIS solutions for the Las Cruces Public Schools (LCPS). While the school district could have chosen to migrate to free software provided by the new owners of their existing eSIS™ system, a comprehensive study of all available options recommended the Edupoint purchase.

Las Cruces Public Schools is the second largest district in New Mexico serving more than 24,000 K-12 students at 38 campuses. The district will implement the complete Edupoint solution suite comprising GENESIS SIS, the GENESEA solution for Special Education, and all integrated modules, including TeacherVUE™ Gradebook, and the ParentVUE™ and StudentVUE™ self-service web portals. The district also expects to take full advantage of Edupoint's Revelation Technology™, the rapid application development platform underlying GENESIS, to meet future needs for new functionality and integration with third-party enterprise applications.

Rob Wilson, Edupoint's President, announced the company's selection: "We are excited to work with our first New Mexico school district and have committed the resources necessary to ensure that our systems meet all of the state's reporting requirements. Like other former eSIS customers who have chosen Edupoint, Las Cruces has an expedited implementation schedule that we can fully support with our experienced implementation team and proven methodology. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Las Cruces Public Schools."

According to Wes Baker, LCPS Director of Information Operations, selecting Edupoint was an easy decision that was well received by LCPS educators, principals, and administrators following vendor product demonstrations. "Gaining consensus in a large school district can be frustrating; however, we quickly saw how functional and beneficial the solution would be for our district," said Baker. "The reaction from our staff was amazing. In every functional area evaluated, our team rated Edupoint number one."

Las Cruces Public Schools will begin implementation and data conversion during the summer of 2011 and expects to have all campuses on the new system in time for 2012/2013 school year registration.

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “At a recent conference Todd Grove of Portland, Maine, was singled out as the nation's 'top producer' in 2010 by LTC Financial Partners LLC (LTCFP). Grove won the same honor in several previous years, distinguishing himself among colleagues nationwide.”



A R T I C L E:

At a recent conference Todd Grove of Portland, Maine, was singled out as the nation's "top producer" in 2010 by LTC Financial Partners LLC (LTCFP). Grove won the same honor in several previous years, distinguishing himself among colleagues nationwide.

In addition, Grove has been ranked nationally as one of the top ten long-term care insurance specialists, for the last 18 years in a row, by the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance.

Grove partners with employee benefit brokers to educate Maine's workforce on the risks associated with long-term care and ways to protect against them. He was recently promoted to National Director of Worksite Solutions for LTCFP.

The LTCFP award is especially noteworthy since the company's 500-plus agents are regarded as the nation's leading specialists in long-term care planning. "My colleagues and I specialize exclusively in long term care insurance," he says. "We're veterans with years of experience."

What does it mean to be the top producer? "One way to look at it," says Grove, "is that I placed the greatest number of policies. Another way to look at it, which I prefer, is that I have helped thousands of families protect their independence and life savings from the devastating effects of long term care costs."

ABOUT TODD GROVE:

He is a Founding Partner of LTCFP, one of the nation's largest and most experienced long-term care insurance agencies. Licensed in 11 states, he has been involved exclusively with long-term care insurance for more than 20 years.

He is co-author (with Denise Gott, Gene Cutler, and Gary Melnikoff) of "3 in 4 Need More: Long Term Care Planning Today" (ISBN: 978-1449961664) available on Amazon.com.

Financial advisors, attorneys and accountants rely on Grove to seek out appropriate plans and carriers for specific needs of their clients.

* Maine Employee Benefits Council, Past President
* National Association of Financial Advisors
* Maine Estate Planning Council
* President Emeritus, Board of Directors, Maine Alzheimer's Association.

Laboratory Supply Distributors Corp. Announces the Multi-Tier Micro Plate System

Author: Laboratory Supply Distributors Corp.
Dateline: Vineland, New Jersey (VINELAND, N.J.)  | Wed, 04 May 2011

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Designed for analytical research and clinical diagnostic testing, Laboratory Supply Distributors Corp. announces the 96-Well Multi-Tier™ Micro Plate System. Its unique, patented design allows for more flexibility and ease of use.”



A R T I C L E:

Designed for analytical research and clinical diagnostic testing, Laboratory Supply Distributors Corp. announces the 96-Well Multi-Tier™ Micro Plate System. Its unique, patented design allows for more flexibility and ease of use.

An improvement on existing 96-Well systems, the Multi-Tier Plate can be built using spacers to hold vial capacities of 0.5ml, 1.0ml, 1.5ml and 2.0ml depending on the height limitations of the instrument. Replacement vials can be purchased in a vial loader format which is a fast and convenient choice for loading vials into the base plate.

"Just peel away the packaging of the vial loader and place an empty base plate on the top of the vial loader. Invert the entire unit and the plate is ready to use," says Clifton Hitchner, vice president, Laboratory Supply Distributors Corp.

The Multi-Tier Micro Plate System allows for the use of individual vials of different heights and volumes, providing for maximum diversity.

Additionally, many assays require heating or cooling of the vials to simulate in-vitro conditions or for temperature sensitive experiments. The new, open bottom design allows the base plate to be immersed in heating or cooling fluids to provide for total fluid contact with the vials. In turn, this allows for a uniform transfer of heat or cold to and from the vials.

Primarily, these systems are ideal for experimental and sorbent assays; drug discovery; drug metabolism research; combinatorial chemistry; high-throughput screening (HTS); and liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS-MS).

In addition to the volume choices available, labs may also choose between 9mm plastic or glass inserts with conical or flat bottoms. The plate may also be fixed height or adjusted to height limitation of analytical instrument.

Spacers build adjustable height to support different-sized inserts. And, plate cover locks the liner in place, prevents vial pullout and provides a secondary sealing system.

About Laboratory Supply Distributors Corp.:

Laboratory Supply Distributors Corp. is a worldwide supplier of unique and innovative products for the analytical, environmental, research, life science, pharmaceutical and academic communities.

Products range from glass and plastic vials, screw-thread closures, aluminum seals, and various types of limited volume inserts.

Its products deliver reliable performance while expediting and simplifying the analysis process. In business for nearly 20 years, Laboratory Supply Distributors Corp. provides its customers with tools that can expand capabilities, increase lab efficiency, reduce cost and simplify the work process.

San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board Helps Small Business Start-Up

Author: Workforce Investment Board of San Bernardino County
Dateline: San Bernardino, California (SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.)  | Tue, 26 Apr 2011

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “In San Bernardino County, site selection and hiring assistance programs are helping promising new businesses launch in spite of a tough economy. The County of San Bernardino Board of Supervisors knows that a business-friendly environment is one of the keys to economic recovery and vitality and carefully invests funding from the Workforce Investment Act to bring more employers to the region.”



A R T I C L E:

In San Bernardino County, site selection and hiring assistance programs are helping promising new businesses launch in spite of a tough economy. The County of San Bernardino Board of Supervisors knows that a business-friendly environment is one of the keys to economic recovery and vitality and carefully invests funding from the Workforce Investment Act to bring more employers to the region.

Metroll, a metal manufacturing company that makes metal roofing, siding and building kits, recently closed escrow in Fontana and plans to be fully operational within four months. What will make it unique is a proprietary software system that allows clients to create customized building plans which are then automatically conformed to the local codes and requirements, saving valuable time and money when obtaining permits and constructing the building.

Anand Patel, a director of Metroll, is grateful for the site selection and hiring assistance he received through the County of San Bernardino Economic Development Agency.

"When I began looking for a site, I realized there was no cheat sheet to get through the site selection and diligence process," Patel said. "One of the challenges we've been confronted with is that the building material industry has been hard hit in this economy and we're working with a very tight budget."

Business service representatives from the San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board immediately stepped in to post Metroll's job openings on www.csb-win.org and also assisted Patel in obtaining the necessary approvals and permits to get Metroll up and running.

"I've grown up hearing that California is the hardest place to do business because of all the hurdles and regulations you have to go through to set up a business," Patel said. "But here in San Bernardino County, I have people I can call for help. They have not only been very knowledgeable, but also reliable and responsive."

Patel anticipates that he will have an on-going relationship with the County as Metroll plans to hire ten new employees within the next few months and then train those workers to operate the machinery that will make roofing, siding and other structural profiles.

"Investing in businesses is not only beneficial to employers, but also to residents who need to make a living wage to support themselves and their families," said Chair Josie Gonzales, County of San Bernardino Fifth District Supervisor. "We work hard to make federal Workforce Investment Act funding work for the benefit of our employers and our County's residents."

The San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board funds a team of 23 forward-thinking business service representatives. Each representative visits a minimum of 40 new businesses per month and maintains relationships with the businesses they have contacted. These representatives meet with business owners to identify their workforce needs, discover job openings, help with hiring and negotiate subsidized training contracts.

"Last year, our business service unit paid a total 9,051 visits to businesses and posted 19,866 jobs to our county Workforce Investment Network," said Sandy Harmsen, Executive Director of the Workforce Investment Board and Director of the County of San Bernardino Workforce Development Department. "They assisted 1,000 businesses with valuable services such as employee recruitment and hiring, job posting as well as contracts for Subsidized Training Employment Program (STEP) and On-the-Job Training (OJT)."

For more information, employers and job seekers can inquire through the County of San Bernardino's Employment Resource Centers at (800) 451-JOBS.

Southeast Computer Solutions Expands ERP Software Product Offering with Payables Retention Management for Argentinean Companies

Author: Southeast Computer Solutions
Dateline: Miami, Florida (MIAMI, Fla.)  | Tue, 26 Apr 2011

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Southeast Computer Solutions has written an add-on program, Payables Retention Management (PRM), for Sage ERP MAS 500 Spanish Edition to manage local tax requirements in Argentina.”



A R T I C L E:

Southeast Computer Solutions has written an add-on program, Payables Retention Management (PRM), for Sage ERP MAS 500 Spanish Edition to manage local tax requirements in Argentina.

In Argentina, tax law requires certain companies known as "retention agents" to withhold taxes on a payable invoice to later be paid to the government. The PRM program works with all contributors and handles multiple retention types including national retentions for VAT and Earning Tax as well as local retentions for Gross Income tax.

The PRM program retains taxes to all suppliers when a payment is made, prints the necessary legal certificates to be given to suppliers, logs all the information into the General Ledger program of Sage ERP MAS 500 and allows you to determine what needs to be paid to the government for a complete solution from end-to-end.

"With the development and availability of PRM, we are able to offer Argentina-based businesses a powerful ERP solution that is both U.S. GAAP-compliant and addresses local taxation processes and regulations," says Sonia Ferrera, president of Southeast Computer Solutions. "Typically, this business arrangement requires manual data manipulation on spreadsheets or interfaces between systems in order for the U.S. company to prepare consolidated financials. With PRM and Sage ERP MAS 500 businesses with operations in the United States and Argentina can automate both."

Developed by Southeast Computers Solutions to augment Sage ERP MAS 500, PRM is available immediately for companies operating in Argentina. The Southeast Computer Solutions team is currently expanding the program's capabilities to be compatible in other Latin American countries.

Southeast Computer Solutions is a Sage Select Authorized Reseller, offering a software portfolio representing a host of segment-leading brands including Sage ERP Accpac, Sage ERP MAS 500, Sage ERP MAS 200, Sage ERP MAS 90, Sage SalesLogix, Sage CRM, Sage Abra HRMS (human resource management system), Sage FAS Fixed Assets and other technology services.

Southeast Computer Solutions (www.southeastcomputers.com) has been an IT consulting firm and Sage Authorized Reseller since 1985. Headquartered in Miami, Southeast has offices in Buenos Aires and specializes in ERP solutions for distribution, warehouse automation, manufacturing and U.S. companies with divisions and subsidiaries in Latin America. With over 600 installations across the United States and Latin America, Southeast is the largest Sage Reseller in Miami and was ranked 75 on the 2010 VAR 100 list, named a 2010 VAR Star and is a 2010 Sage President's Circle award winner.

Metal Pallets Improve the Supply Chain

Author: Compliance Packaging International Ltd.
Dateline: Columbus, Ohio (COLUMBUS, Ohio)  | Thu, 21 Apr 2011

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Ohio based Compliance Packaging International Ltd. announced today that it now offers reusable metal pallets in warehouses where wood and plastic pallets are no longer suitable. Increasingly, companies are using steel pallets to earn a strong return on investment (improve the cost per trip) and promote sustainable corporate initiatives.”



A R T I C L E:

Ohio based Compliance Packaging International Ltd. (CPI) announced today that it now offers reusable metal pallets in warehouses where wood and plastic pallets are no longer suitable. Increasingly, companies are using steel pallets to earn a strong return on investment (improve the "cost per trip") and promote sustainable corporate initiatives. Warehouse managers and operations executives worldwide are discovering that metal pallets improve the supply chain.

Company President Steve Klinkefus finds that "Our clients increasingly are looking to replace plastic and wood pallets with metal pallets in their warehouse operations. They tell us our metal pallets are an excellent value because of their low cost and durability. They also like that metal pallets lower the amount of product damage inside their facilities, and eliminate debris left behind from broken plastic and wood pallets."

Metal pallets outperform wood pallets and plastic pallets in many ways. Metal pallets provide a superior return on investment due to their affordable cost and durable construction. Over time, the cost per trip of a metal pallet is less than a plastic pallet or wood pallet since metal pallets last longer.

In addition to lowering costs, corporations are realizing the environmental and safety benefits of metal pallets versus wood and plastic pallets. While damaged plastic pallets usually cannot be repaired, steel pallets can be repaired numerous times for a much longer lifecycle. Metal pallets also have an "end of life" value as recycled galvanized steel.

Unlike plastic pallets and wood pallets, which present dangerous fire hazards in warehouse applications, steel pallets are not flammable. Steel pallets also create less debris and don't have splinters, reducing workplace injuries resulting from broken and damaged pallets.

Metal pallets also reduce product loss incidents during transport compared to typical plastic and wood pallets. Large multinational companies have used the 48 inch x 40 inch metal distribution pallet for more than 18 months with loss rates less than 3 percent. A single metal 48 inch x 40 inch distribution pallet has a static load capacity of 40,000 lbs and a dynamic load capacity of 10,000 lbs with 4 entry points. Additionally, the metal pallet is robotically machine welded together with no rivets or clamps for increased durability.

Another benefit of the steel pallet is that some types can support up to 3,500 pounds in an open edge racking system. Custom metal pallets are also available for environments where special sizes and performance requirements are necessary.

In addition to steel pallets, Compliance Packaging International also offers manufacturers aluminum pallets and aluminum containers as well as stainless steel pallets for hygienic environments. To learn more about metal pallets, please visit the website at http://www.metalpallets.us .
