US Immigrants Build Credit with UpgradeUSAs Laptop Payment Plans

Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 30, 2012

UpgradeUSA, a leading online company focused on helping customers build credit through laptop payment plans, today announced a service that provides legal US immigrants the chance to build a history of good credit.

People from all over the world who move to the US find that when they complete their move, their credit doesnt move with them, effectively forcing them to start building credit from scratch -- and they quickly discover the US financial system to be daunting and full of hassles.

UpgradeUSAs laptop payment plans help these people build the future they want in the US by being a company that will help them build better credit, and have every payment reported to US credit bureaus.

After they work with their immigration lawyers, legal US immigrants often find it challenging to take the next step and build the credit they need to fully participate in the US financial system, said Jon Weisblatt, founder & CEO, UpgradeUSA. It doesnt matter to us if our customers are doctors or janitors we can help legal immigrants address the credit challenges they face. Our service offers a smart way for legal immigrants to demonstrate that they can make consistent payments over time, which is critical towards building good credit.

Which Immigrants Can Benefit

People who have legally moved to the US from any country in the world -- including Mexico, Canada, India, China, Japan, etc. will see benefits from the UpgradeUSA laptop payment plan program. Establishing credit in the US is an important milestone for any family looking to build a future in the US. The UpgradeUSA program is a discreet, online-only program.

In addition, people over 18 who are able to take advantage of the much-discussed DREAM Act will also find UpgradeUSA to be an invaluable tool for them to jump-start their credit in the US as they seek citizenship.

Any legal immigrants interested in UpgradeUSAs credit building laptop payment program must have a social security number.

How People Can Apply

To participate in the program, people should visit where they can click on the Apply Today button and complete a short application on a secure site. They should expect an email response within one business day. UpgradeUSA ships after the first customer payment.

After approved customers make their first payment and schedule subsequent monthly payments, UpgradeUSA quickly ships the computer that the customer ordered. Customers can make and schedule all payments securely online via debit or credit cards.

UpgradeUSAs Prices and Products

UpgradeUSAs laptop payment plans are available for immigrants and the general public, and start as low as $ 55/month. Unlike other companies, prices at UpgradeUSA do not change based on a customers credit score. This makes for an affordable quality alternative to traditional rent-to-own, financing, and layaway.

UpgradeUSA offers a variety of high-quality new and factory-refurbished laptop computers from the worlds best technology brands. Available products often include the latest technology and operating systems.

Availability by State

UpgradeUSAs online-only laptop payment plan services are now available for qualified customers in the following states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and Wyoming.

About UpgradeUSA

The High ROI of Professional Graphic Design: Visible Logic Shows Small Businesses How to Build Brand Equity, Increase Revenues

The High ROI of Professional Graphic Design: Visible Logic Shows Small Businesses How to Build Brand Equity, Increase Revenues

Portland, ME (PRWEB) January 20, 2010

In an uncertain economic climate, many new and existing business owners are cutting corners when it comes to designing their logos, web sites and other marketing communications. However, by hiring amateurs or, even worse, choosing the design-it-yourself route, these entrepreneurs are turning valuable customers--and revenues--away.

Visible Logic (, a Portland, Maine-based boutique graphic design firm, shows businesses how to avoid this fatal mistake by investing in professional graphic design, which not only has a high ROI, but also helps generate higher revenues and build brand equity.

One of Visible Logic's clients, Educational Endeavors, an academic tutoring and homeschooling services company, came to the graphic design firm after first attempting to design their branding themselves. Educational Endeavors admitted its marketing collateral looked homemade and that its web site was "junk." The company needed to communicate a more professional image to attract more business.

To help Educational Endeavors achieve its business goals, Visible Logic revised the company's logo, incorporated a tag line, redesigned the web site, and designed new print brochures, folders, registration forms, and electronic newsletters with consistent use of imagery and color schemes across all media. Within just six months of launching its new brand, Educational Endeavors' client base more than doubled, and the quality of its clientele increased dramatically. Company Founder Eric Davis says he now understands the reality of the business cliché: "We had to spend money to make money." Business continues to soar as Educational Endeavors partners with Visible Logic for ongoing design needs.

Founded in 2001 by Emily Brackett, Visible Logic provides graphic design services for print, web and identity for clients across the country. Brackett's goal is to serve clients who want to use high-quality design to help them compete with companies of all sizes.

"Customers form lasting impressions about a company's size, financial condition, product reliability, service quality, value and more based on their initial contact with your company, whether that's a glance at your business card or a visit to your web site," says Brackett. "A negative first impression is hard, or even impossible, to undo."

Startups and growing businesses can learn more about the high ROI of professional graphic design by downloading Visible Logic's free white paper, "Professional Graphic Design: The Crucial Step Toward Higher Brand Equity, Increased Revenues," which includes a case study of Educational Endeavors, at

FinalBuilder 4 Dramatically Accelerates Software Build and Release Cycles

FinalBuilder 4 Dramatically Accelerates Software Build and Release Cycles

Canberra, Australia (PRWEB) December 2, 2005

FinalBuilder 4 introduces a vast number of improvements which can dramatically accelerate software build and release cycles as well as increasing the flexibility of FinalBuilder build processes. The new version adds over 150 new actions and now includes integration with Microsoft Team System and VMWare.

FinalBuilder is an end-to-end build and release management system; capable of automating the entire build process, everything from integration with version control systems, compilation of source code, deployment, and burning a CD or DVD. As well as increasing the speed and reliability of the build process, FinalBuilder increases staff productivity by relieving them of the repetitive and error prone tasks.

One of the biggest new features in FinalBuilder 4 is the ability for the build process to be parallelised. This produces dramatic speed improvements on multiprocessor and multi-core computers. Even on single processor computers, I/O bound (either local or network) actions can be run in parallel with CPU bound actions, which leads to an overall reduction in the build time. "We have some customers whose build processes run for most of the day," says Vincent Parrett, director of VSoft Technologies, "these customers [depending on their hardware and build process] will be able to realise a significant reduction in their build times.â€Â Running actions in parallel allows users to get more work done in the same amount of time.

FinalBuilder 4 also introduces an easy way to synchronise version numbers and version information between the various modules of a software project. It is common practice to use a single set of version information which is applied to a variety of modules, and it is important that each of these modules contain the same information, such as the file version. The new Property Set actions allow the build process to define a compact set of information which can be easily shared between different components, such as between compiler actions.

FinalBuilder 4 also adds support for synchronous waiting. The build process can be paused until a certain condition is met, for example waiting for a network share to become available, or for the date of a file to change. In the past, automated builds either had to either loop or fail outright if a certain condition was not met.

Similarly, the new File Dependency action can be used to conditionally run a set of actions depending on the file dates, attributes, or accessibility of one or more files. "We have concentrated on adding features to make the build process extremely flexible", says Vincent Parrett, "the positive feedback received during our beta testing period show that these new features really make a difference".

Pricing starts at $ 379 per developer for FinalBuilder 4 Standard Edition and $ 499 per developer for FinalBuilder 4 Professional Edition.

A fully functional 30 day evaluation copy is available from our website.
