Blue Water Nursery Grows New Customers with High Definition LED Sign

Kingsland, TX (PRWEB) March 24, 2014

The central Texas town of Kingsland has its own tagline: Where the rivers flow and the bluebonnets grow. You can hardly locate it on the map, but where the mighty Colorado River meets the Llano River, youll find a tiny unincorporated slice of Heaven where vacation homes and boat docks dot the landscape. A little under 6,000 people call Kingsland home, and all who do are enamored with the easy lifestyle and temperate weather. A top-rated retirement community, many residents enjoy spending their time fishing, swimming, watersking, biking and gardening.

Located on the main artery that runs through the town, Blue Water Nursery does a brisk business in the spring when the seasonals are available, and they are the area leader in Christmas tree sales. For years they were content to let their small wooden sign point the way to the front door, but recently owner Larry Skero decided it was time for a change. The sign needed freshening up. Some extra eye-candy could only help business, he reasoned.

A quick search on the internet led Skero to the answer. He opted to go with a high definition digital LED retail sign from Advantage LED Signs in Houston. He was intrigued at the full color animation; the ability to change the signs content from his computer whenever he wanted, and the noticeability it would add on the highway.

What he didnt expect was the response it would receive from the community.

Since we installed the sign weve decided to take a look at our radio and print advertising, Office Manager Amie Moore explains. Print and radio have brought little traffic in. Were going to let the LED do our advertising for us and see what happens.

The sign was shipped to the store late last year, and local installers quickly hung it up on the side of the road where it acts as a beacon for traveling drivers.

Blue Water Nursery recently chose to add to their growing staff. They ran an ad in the local newspaper and received exactly one phone call. When they flashed the Help Wanted content on the LED sign they were inundated with potential employees walking in.

People were coming in by the hour! exclaimed Moore.

Theres really nothing else like the 3’6 x 6’1 12.5mm iPixel Full Color LED Sign in town, and it certainly gets noticed. Customers that walk in constantly rave about the colorful ads and enticing specials flashing on the digital retail sign. Its impossible to miss on the busy thoroughfare.

Moore is especially impressed with the in-depth training she received on the software and how easy it is to create new movies for the sign. She uses PowerPoint to design her ad and simply uploads it to the sign for minute-by-minute scheduling.

Everyone at Advantage LED Signs has been awesome to work with, Moore states. My hats off to them.

As the busy season approaches, everyone at Blue Water Nursery is excited to see how the sign will improve their bottom line. One things for sure the new sign wont go unnoticed.

Intralearn Software Releases NanoLearn, Providing Informal Learning from Within Microsoft SharePoint

Northboro, MA (PRWEB) March 25, 2014

Intralearn Software Corporation, a pioneer in eLearning, today announced the release of NanoLearn, a Microsoft SharePoint add-on. NanoLearn enables organizations to track viewing and understanding of content found in SharePoint document libraries and across the Web.

As a veteran of the eLearning market, ISC sought to address the gap between current information and eLearning courses. Organizations have a continual need to distribute new information (corporate polices, sales collateral, articles on the web) which moves too quickly to be distributed via traditional eLearning. Currently, these documents/files are most likely distributed through emails or alerts with no way of validating user compliance.

NanoLearn allows managers to identify content located in SharePoint (PDF, PowerPoint, etc.) and across the web (news articles, YouTube, Twitter, etc.), associate a validator such as a quiz, survey, or e-signature, and then assign it to the appropriate members of their community. Metrics identifying valuable documents, who viewed what, and how well the users understood the content can then be correlated with corporate governance, business objectives, and job performance.

NanoLearn drastically reduces the time and effort to keep people up to date on items such as processes, policy changes, best practices, and training requirements. It can take thousands of dollars and numerous months to develop a set of courses, during which time relevant content and materials go without tracking.

NanoLearn pricing starts at $ 10,000. For more info, visit http://www.intralearn.com/nanolearn.

ON World: 40 Percent of Consumers Are Willing to Allow Their Utility to Remotely Control Home Energy Devices

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 20, 2014

A recently completed survey with over 1000 U.S. consumers by ON World found that two in five are willing to allow utilities to remotely control home area network (HAN) devices to save on energy costs.

Of the respondents willing to participate, 52% would like a free thermostat and 23% would accept a real-time energy display.

Consumer friendly smart home solutions enabled by cloud platforms and Internet connected smart devices have revolutionized energy savings and paved the way for a new generation of demand response programs, said Mareca Hatler, ON Worlds research director.

In the survey, smart thermostats were the most popular home energy management devices followed by lighting controls and smart appliances. Even though only 10% of respondents are likely to use a real-time energy display, access to real-time energy usage information was ranked one of the top three most important home energy equipment purchasing decisions. This illustrates the high demand for alternative home energy interfaces such as smartphones and tablets.

For youths, a smartphone/tablet app is one of the most important purchasing considerations. For example, 30% of respondents aged between 18 and 24 ranked smartphone/tablet control as the most important consideration.

In a challenge to home service providers, No recurring service fee was the most important home energy management consideration for younger respondents. No service fee was the most important home energy purchasing consideration by 46% of respondents aged 25 to 34.

Using a smart meter, real-time pricing plans provide maximum energy savings and peak load savings when combined with home energy equipment. ON Worlds survey found that 29% of the willing demand response respondents with household incomes over $ 50,000 would accept a real-time energy pricing plan in exchange for allowing their utility to remotely control in-home devices.

The survey, Home Energy Management: Consumer Views & Preferences is published in PowerPoint and may be purchased separately or as part of a report set. More information is available from: http://onworld.com/smartenergyhomes/consumers.
