Graphicsland, Inc. Develops “Graphicsland Proactive Tracking” for FedEx Shipments

Tinley Park, Illinois (PRWEB) May 31, 2012

Graphicsland, Inc., is always thinking of new ways to better serve their customers. To do just that, they have developed Graphicsland Proactive Tracking. This software solution will enable Graphicsland customer service reps to actively monitor all outbound FedEx shipments to their customers. In addition to tracking shipments, this application also detects potential transit problems such as bad weather, missed planes, or mechanical failures.

Each package stops at certain distribution centers along the way to its delivery. This Proactive Tracking application monitors each arrival and departure of every package at these distribution centers, and if a package hasnt reached one of these specified locations on time, the system will alert Graphicsland personnel. While FedEx and UPS provide tracking tools, late deliveries are usually only reported at the end of the day. Using this new proactive approach, Graphicsland is notified at the earliest time possible that a package may be delayed, allowing time for the customer to be contacted and notified.

On-time delivery is important to many companies, and Graphicsland is no exception. Graphicsland prints scientific research posters through their web site. Sometimes, many months of research is summarized in these posters in order for the researcher to present his/her work. The timely delivery of these posters is critical, as researchers travel to national conferences to display their research. If you find out at the end of the day that the poster wont arrive, its sometimes too late to produce another poster. With Proactive Tracking Graphicsland has been able to work miracles by reprinting a poster and shipping it for morning delivery at a different location, such as the conference center or a hotel. In these cases, Graphicsland will usually re-print and re-ship a new poster at absolutely no cost to the customer - even if Graphicsland will not be reimbursed by FedEx for the delay, such as in the case of inclement weather. According to Jerry Feil, Graphicslands President, Its a significant cost to reprint and reship an order for a customer, but we consider it an investment in goodwill. Customers cant get over the wow factor of what we do for them. Theyll tell everyone at the conference about their positive experience with

Graphicsland also understands that delays arent the only issue that shipments can run into. Sometimes incorrect addresses can be the culprit. Graphicsland understands, and their customer service reps manually verify each address for every order against a database containing all addresses in the US. Whether it is an incorrect zip code or a missing number in an address, they are usually able to catch it before the package even ships. If it gets past their database, Graphicsland Proactive Tracking will provide a report on all shipments that had an incorrect address. This allows Graphicsland customer service reps to appropriately adjust the address so future orders will be shipped to the correct location.

The Proactive Tracking application was developed exclusively for use by Graphicslands customer support for their,, and customer. The application is not available for sale to other entities at this time.

Graphicsland, Inc. is a privately held corporation based in Tinley Park, IL that specializes in custom printing solutions. The companys expertise is in graphic design, digital printing and custom software development.

XenCare Software Introduces Their Proactive Security-ware “XenCare SoftLock 2.0”

XenCare Software Introduces Their Proactive Security-ware "XenCare SoftLock 2.0"

Redmond, WA (PRWEB) September 2, 2008

XenCare Software today announced the launch of their flagship product XenCare SoftLock 2.0 to provide the Windows users simpler yet powerful proactive security solution to deal with threats yet to be identified.

XenCare SoftLock is a lightweight and powerful protection for Windows computers. It is a virtual lock system which, when turned on, thwarts all suspicious activities no matter who tried to do it: a normal program or a threat (virus, spy ware, Malware, Adware) from inside user's computer or over the network. It prevents programs from automatically making another program (or itself) start automatically when Windows starts. XenCare SoftLock protects creation, deletion, copying and modification of some sensitive types of files (.exe, .dll and .com .sys etc) and thus stops unknown threats spread through malicious program. It breaks the trend of using threat definition databases and periodic updates by conventional security products.

This virtual lock system is superior to other similar products in terms of both ease of usage and low CPU overhead. We can use the analogy of a house to represent a user's computer system. There are lots of advanced electronic security systems with complex features and closed-circuit cameras with streaming live view on a website so that user can even monitor the cc-view of her house from anywhere. But nothing replaces the faithful lock at the main entrance of the house. Similarly there is a number of such computer System Protection software in the market which is very rich in features and truly effective if the user is smart enough. But they are not without pitfalls. They can be heavyweight with high CPU and I/O consumption or advanced user interface that makes an average user confused to set up the optimal settings.

Again, XenCare SoftLock is not an antivirus. Using the house analogy, the contrast between an antivirus product and XenCare SoftLock will be more evident. Basically, antivirus is something like getting a big wanted list of all bad guys from all law enforcement agency, and putting a guard inside your house telling him kick out anyone to get in my house from that list, no need to add lock on your front door. Whereas, XenCare don't depend on the correctness of the list or effectiveness of the guard, rather than lock the front door, and unlock it when needed. XenCare SoftLock brings the conventional wisdom back into play that "prevention is better than cure" -- prevent the threat before it can infect your system.

SoftLock keeps its constant eyes on what is going on inside your Windows computer, even inside the most restricted areas of Windows kernel. It monitors access requests to program files like executables (.exe and .com), Dynamically Linked Libraries (.dll), drivers and some other. Whenever any program tries to create or modify any binary file on your computer, XenCare SoftLock will freeze it and notify you. You can always unlock the system, install new program and lock the system again. XenCare SoftLock 2.0 supports 32 bit Windows environments of Windows XP and Windows Vista. To get a trial or a complete version of XenCare SoftLock visit

"Future security solutions for 21st century should protect system from threats that hasn't been identified yet. XenCare SoftLock is just a step forward to that direction," stated Shafiqul Khalid, founder and Chief technology officer of XenCare Software.

XenCare Software is a Redmond, WA, USA based privately held software security solution provider with an offshore development site in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Announcing Immediate Release of FusionReactor? 3.0 — the Leading Pro-Active Server Monitor for Adobe’s ColdFusion and J2EE Servers

Stuttgart, Germany (PRWEB) February 25, 2008

Intergral announces the immediate release of FusionReactor™ 3.0, the leading server monitor for Adobe's ColdFusion server and LiveCycle Data Services as well as all other popular J2EE servers. FusionReactor 3.0 introduces over 150 new features and improvements, ranging from enhanced crash protection capability, new detailed metrics and 'rich' real-time graphs. This feature packed release takes server monitoring to new levels of discovery, visualization and protection.

FusionReactor's feature rich toolset has two main areas of focus, the first is "issue isolation and identification" -- which involves the "discovery" and "visualization" of what is happening on your server. FusionReactor provides visually rich metric information, such as current running requests, DB query details, memory and CPU usage, to let developers easily and quickly isolate and fix application runtime issues. The second area is about "maintaining service levels" in production environments i.e. to "protect" server stability and maintain application availability using FusionReactor's unattended monitoring and server self healing capabilities.

New features in FusionReactor 3.0 include:

AIR Enterprise Dashboard -- delivers a rich internet client which seamlessly integrates onto your desktop to give you immediate notification of server status changes.
Resource graphs -- take the guesswork out of resource configuration by delivering a detailed insight into how many resources your server really needs. Resulting in more predictable infrastructure costs and optimized system performance.
Self Healing Scripts -- maintain high availability by using the new scripting features to automatically restart problem server instances or issue alerts using custom email messages.
System Metrics -- show the current status of request activity, JDBC requests, memory and CPU usage -- all rendered in a set of interchangeable real-time graph components and designed to let users quickly 'focus in' on issue hot-spots.

"Being successful in the server monitoring space is all about reliability, accuracy and non-intrusion and this is where FusionReactor excels," said David Tattersall, CEO of Intergral. "The new FusionReactor 3.0 release provides unbeatable ROI by allowing developers to isolate and solve more issues before going to production and by maintaining ongoing service levels and application up-time in production environments."

Proactive Training Solutions Launches Its New Interactive Online Sales Training Platform, ADAPT VT

Proactive Training Solutions Launches Its New Interactive Online Sales Training Platform, ADAPT VT

Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) September 14, 2009

For the past few decades, the most common means for training automotive sales staff has been on or off-site seminars / conferences. One disadvantage with this method has been the drop in productivity during those times as the sales staff attends the event (usually during business hours). The other is that although these seminars might pump up the sales staff, because the training is not continual in nature, the return on investment for the dealer may not be optimal.

While there is still a place and benefit to these methods, Proactive Training Solutions has recently introduced another option for dealers through its ADAPT VT Online Interactive Platform. ADAPT VT is an online and interactive comprehensive sales training platform for automotive dealerships. Topics include Telephone Training, Sales Training, BDC Training, Management Training, and Internet Training.

Many salespeople are at home in the showroom, but feel ill at ease on the phone. ADAPT VT provides staff with a game plan that they feel confident in and are confident in executing to capitalize on every opportunity, whether inbound or outbound. Successful training requires the repeated application of learned skills. With ADAPT VT, training is available 24/7 so that the dealership sales and management staff can train in increments during downtime or when most convenient. Additionally, with interactive exercises and comprehensive testing, salespeople can also practice with virtual customers and be held accountable for their training by management.

Lastly, ADAPT VT is a lifesaver for dealership sales managers. Regardless of turnover within the sales staff, new hires can train on ADAPT VT from day one, freeing up the managers to close deals, manage salesperson activity, and use their time wisely.
