Lavu Delivers Online Ordering with Restaurant iPad POS

Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) July 03, 2014

Lavu Inc. is pleased to announce new solutions for their online ordering application Lavu ToGo including multiple payment options, real-time notifications, customizable online menus, and easy website embedding. Lavu ToGo is directly integrated with Lavu iPad POS and helps streamline the online ordering process.

Multiple payment options make online ordering more accessible and user friendly for those placing orders through websites on laptops, desktops and mobile devices. Customers ordering online can now pay with cash at the counter during pickup or – if the client has direct credit card integration – with a credit card while placing an order. Multiple payment options improves the customer experience while simplifying checkout procedures.

Lavu ToGo was created to address customer demand for online ordering. More diners are ordering meals from their PCs, smartphones and devices. The new Lavu ToGo update endured extensive in-house and client beta testing, and works fluidly to improve the order taking workflow for staff.

We wanted to redefine what Lavu ToGo could do for our clients, said Alex Gibbs, VP of Product Development. We listened to client feedback and studied industry trends to understand how to best improve our product, and then developed multiple payment options and real-time notifications in response.

New improvements to Lavus online ordering solutions are coupled with existing Lavu features including a searchable customer database. The easy to access customer list includes customer order history, addresses and contact information, and speeds up the order taking process for staff.

Lavu ToGo is included at no extra charge for Gold, Platinum and Pro accounts. The interface can be easily embedded into clients existing websites, and customized in the Lavu iPad POS back-of-house. Lavu offers 24 hour phone support for questions or setup assistance.

GSA Approves and Enables Smartsheet for Online Work Collaboration and Project Management

Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) June 24, 2014

Smartsheet, the collaborative work management tool used by more than 45,000 paying organizations and millions of users worldwide, today announced that the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has selected Smartsheet as its online collaborative project management tool, and that it is now available for all GSA employees.

Smartsheet is currently in use by teams at federal agencies including NASA, Library of Congress, National Institutes of Health, National Parks Service, and US Department of Veterans Affairs. Additionally, state government organizations, such as the State of Maryland, also use the spreadsheet-inspired tool to coordinate a wide variety of work processes and projects including election logistics, constituent programs, IT projects, wetland research, and grant management.

GSA, which is leading the federal governments charge to the cloud, adopted a Google-based email and calendar system in mid-2011. Now, theyre further extending their ecosystem with the Smartsheet deployment. The unique combination of the easy-to-use spreadsheet interface, file sharing, powerful project management capabilities, such as Gantt charts and automated workflows, plus the seamless integration with Google, were all key factors in its decision to select Smartsheet.

After seeing employees quickly adopt and embrace Smartsheet and the successful completion of a rigorous security review process, the GSA made the decision to bypass traditional project management software, such as Microsoft Project and other web-based apps, in favor of deploying Smartsheet across the entire organization. GSA now links its program management schedules and Gantt chart timelines in Smartsheet with Google tools, such as calendars, Gmail, and the Google Drive document system.

Secure, cloud-based business apps like Smartsheet are growing in popularity with government agencies as the organizations struggle with increasing pressure to lower operational and capital IT expenses. According to the The InformationWeek Governments 2013 Federal Government Cloud Computing Survey, a majority of

Mosso, Rackspace’s Cloud Division, Enables Cloud Files with Limelight Networks Content Delivery Service : Cloud Storage and CDN Integration Enables Unlimited Online Storage to be Distributed Across the Globe Quickly and at a Low Cost

SAN ANTONIO (PRWEB) November 19, 2008

Cloud Files, a scalable online storage service, as well as the relationship with Limelight, was announced last month at the Cloud Event as part of the new suite of Cloud Hosting offerings from Rackspace. In conjunction with Cloud Files, Limelight’s robust and proven delivery service helps enable Mosso to quickly deliver files around the globe.

“Using Cloud Files for Action Method Online means that we don’t ever have to worry about running out of space, or adding expensive hardware. We can allow our users to upload as many files as they like while managing their projects and scale seamlessly with amazing performance,” said Chris Henry, Co-CTO, Behance. “And with a CDN leader like Limelight delivering our users’ files, we believe we can count not only on reliability but also on the fastest download time out there.”

Limelight Networks operates a dedicated optical network that interconnects thousands of servers around the world. This network enables the company to deliver massive files at the speed of light directly into the access networks that consumers use every day. When an end user requests a file, Limelight’s network pulls it from the closest Mosso server, caches the content within their geographically distributed network, and serves it up at blazing speeds.

“Limelight Networks’ global delivery platform provides Mosso with world-class performance, scalability, and efficiency, which can help them ensure that any object stored in the Cloud Files service will reliably and efficiently be delivered to their end-users,” said Peter Coppola, vice president, product management, Limelight Networks, Inc.. “This combination of cost effective, unlimited online storage with Limelight’s worldwide distribution platform is truly innovative, and we are proud to work with Mosso and Rackspace to bring this exciting new service to market.”

“The Mosso/Limelight relationship brings full-fledged, robust CDN capabilities and unlimited file storage to developers and corporate IT shops alike. We expect Mosso’s new CDN capability to greatly enhance the quality of the end user experience by speeding the delivery of bandwidth-heavy rich content, including audio and video.” said Emil Sayegh, general manager of Mosso. “For literally pennies per gigabyte of bandwidth and storage and no upfront commitments, the CDN advantage is no longer only available to the giants of the internet. Together with Limelight, we have just democratized content delivery.”

Beyond enabling developers to rapidly and affordably serve content with a simple “right click”, this new CDN capability also adds an additional layer of redundancy for public content. Other Cloud Files benefits include:

Ease of Use: Files can be managed either through an online control panel or programmatically through language specific APIs (ReST, PHP, Python, Java, .NET) Flexibility: Customers can use as much or little storage as necessary, while paying only for what is used Stored files can be as small as a few bytes or as large as 5GB Metadata: Additional metadata can be added, and delivered, along with each file that is stored Pricing for Cloud Files with CDN starts at 15 cents per gigabyte of storage and 22 cents per gigabyte of bandwidth from any edge location around the globe. High volume users receive price breaks at 30 TB of storage and/or 5 TB of bandwidth. Pricing includes CDN transit services only available through Cloud Files. Mosso CDN integration is available today with no additional fees for CDN-based requests. There are no upfront fees required to get started and end users pay only for storage space and outgoing bandwidth that has been used. For more pricing information, please visit

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is the foundation for modern transactional systems. As the Internet extends transaction systems to real time, SOA has been invented to extend the transaction systems appropriately. SOA supports the evolution of Internet based real time e-business and end-to-end business process integration.

In the next decade, the same SOA principles will be at the core of a new era of business engagements that transact at Internet scale across locations, devices, people, processes and information. IBM is able to manage scale and security. It has built a set of systems that have been criticized over the years for being too complex and too large, but now that the Internet and real time computing have evolved, IBM stands alone in its ability to scale reliably and securely.

IBM SOA is first and foremost tuned to supporting mobile application development, big data, and cloud computing. The SOA enterprise architecture supports mobile development by providing transparent seamless API support for all the different mobile smart phones.

Blacknight Calls on Internet Users to Reclaim their Online Identity

Carlow, Ireland (PRWEB) July 29, 2013

Leading Irish domain registrar and hosting company Blacknight is calling on Internet users to take control of their own online lives.

Blacknight ( want Internet users to know that storing their data on social networks is not a long-term online content management solution. As social networks rise and fall, so does the information stored there. The safest and most effective way to store and manage online content is through a personally controlled business or personal site. A domain name and website run on an open source platform like WordPress and hosted by the individual or company creates a space for content and data to live over time in one place.

Michele Neylon of Blacknight explains, If there is one thing I tell people over and over again, it is that the most important thing you can do for yourself and your online business is to get a good domain name and build a site on it. Do not rely solely on social networks to store your content and information. It is unprofessional but most alarmingly; it’s impermanent. If Facebook should suddenly go out of business, all of your data goes with it. You need a domain name and a website to house all of your personal and business data.

Whether focusing on a blog, personal, photo sharing or business site, it is advantageous to create a place online from which to host content that is sourced to preferred social media platforms. Not only does this create a personal record of everything a user publishes online, but it also makes it easier to control online identity.

Neylon continues, The amount of content a person creates over time becomes a record of their life. If suddenly, every holiday photo, opinion and important announcement or business contact were to disappear due to the collapse of a social media service, it would be devastating.

For those seeking to re-claim their online identity, Blacknight offers domain name registration in over two hundred extensions including .COM, .EU, .BIZ, .CO and .ME, which can be perfectly paired with No Fluff Cloud Hosting. For those who prefer a more traditional hosting setup, Blacknight also provides Standard Hosting, Shared Hosting, Hosted SharePoint, Dedicated/ Colocation, and Mobile Friendly Hosting through goMobi. Each service has several pricing and performance tiers so Blacknight customers can create a package that fits their needs.

About Blacknight:

Blacknight are an Irish based, ICANN accredited domain registrar and hosting company. Recipients of several awards for their revolutionary use of social media, Blacknight are one of Europes most cutting edge Internet companies. Blacknight constantly seek to lead the way by introducing innovative solutions for its client base and provide dedicated servers and colocation as well as a comprehensive range of Microsoft Windows and Linux based hosting plans and domain name registration services to business globally.

Traditional Advertising and Marketing Move Closer to Extinction Due to a New Online Brand Management Program

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) July 19, 2010

Brandtailers today announced a new product to manage a companys online brand. The patent-pending Online Brand Management Program listens, responds, promotes and measures brands in the online world. Beta testers agree it is a strong replacement for traditional advertising and marketing.

Our agency has been in advertising and marketing for 20 years, long enough to see 24k dial up modems give way to Terabytes and Cloud Servers, said Cheril Hendry, CEO of Brandtailers. Weve also seen the ROI of most traditional media decline to the point of irrelevance. A good online program, heavily focused on brand management, is where the market is going. With this product, well get our clients there first.

Adria Higginson, Brandtailers Director of Operations, described their Online Brand Management program as a tool that goes beyond common Social Media and Online Reputation Management products. There are lots of agencies touting their expertise in Twitter, Facebook, and customer review management, she said, but thats only a small piece of our program. To truly replace offline marketing with successful online branding, it takes more. A lot more.

Hendry said she spent the last few years watching businesses struggle with online advertising and marketing products they didnt understand, much less want to take time using. She knew there was a need not only for a full-service program, but also a full-service person that could manage the program for the client. Our product is a success because it includes state-of-the-art technology and a highly skilled Online Brand Manager.

Each Online Brand Manager spends two weeks in-house with a new client to understand their business operations and capture their corporate culture. In addition to this training, the OBM (Online Brand Manager) is often paired with industries theyre very familiar with. For example, Celine Bunagan, one of Brandtailers Online Brand Managers, has extensive experience with luxury automotive marketing. She said, Two weeks into the programs beta test, I helped a luxury dealer sell an Audi A4 through Twitter. That was pretty fun.

All of Brandtailers clients involved with the beta-test the said they especially liked the personalized Dashboard that comes with the program. Katherine Topping, Brandtailers Online Brand Management Supervisor, said, The Dashboard is a live, moment by moment summary of our listening, responding, promoting and measuring efforts on behalf of the client. Its all they need to know whats going on. She explained that clients have live access not only to whats happening on line, but direct connection to their Online Brand Manager as well. Topping said, We even have a weekly two minute video summary for executives who are extremely time-limited but still want to stay informed.

Hendry is clear to point out this product is not for every business. She states it is primarily designed for medium sized companies that know they need an online marketing and brand management program, but for whatever reason they dont want to bring it in-house.

For additional information on Brandtailers Online Brand Management Program contact Cheril Hendry or visit

Brandtailers is a full-service digital and traditional marketing agency with twenty years of expertise in the retail, financial, educational, automotive and real estate industries.
