Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) June 29, 2012

PostNet International Franchise Corp., the Denver-based franchisor of PostNet Neighborhood Business Centers, selected Denver digital agency Elevated Third to design and develop the companys new online portal. The digital agency is providing information architecture and development expertise to create an online tool that enables PostNet to manage the corporate brand while facilitating business for over 300 North American franchises.

PostNet chose to partner with Elevated Third due to the agencys extensive knowledge of Drupal, an open-source content management system that allows users to more easily manage a wide range of content types. The agency is redeveloping the companys current custom-coded intranet into a single, Drupal-interfaced portal with accessibility for an unlimited number of users.

In using Drupal, PostNet is able to leverage functionality that allows the company freedom to more easily make changes that do not require PostNet administrators to work directly with custom HTML.

PostNet anticipates that the new site structure, with its more friendly and organized user-interface, will allow business owners to better manage the operational health of each franchise online, while further extending the companys competitive reach as a resource in the business network industry. Elevated Third is excited to work alongside the international company, as the redesign project allows the agency to further apply its skills with backend development in intranet functionality.

Elevated Third is thrilled to further apply its development knowledge and resources to working with PostNets intranet and functionality. As a growing agency, its exciting to work with PostNet as they experience similar growth in their own industry. Were well-matched.

Yost & Campbell Selected For the Third Year in a Row as Con Edison’s HVAC Energy Efficiency Program Contractor of the Year


Westchester, NY (PRWEB) February 29, 2012

For the third year in a row Yost & Campbell has been selected as Con Edison's Residential HVAC Energy Efficiency Program Contractor of the Year. Yost & Campbell was the very first recipient of the award in 2009 and received it for 2010 and 2011 for delivering the largest volume of program rebates to its residential customers who participated in the program.

"We are extraordinarily proud to receive this recognition," stated Tom Monahan, Co-Owner of Yost & Campbell, the firm he owns with his brother Kevin. "Our goal is to provide our customers with the very best service as well as the most energy efficient technology available," he added. The firm, celebrating 73 years in business, has become known for retrofitting older homes with unique high velocity air conditioning units that have ducts half the size of conventional air-conditioning and save the homeowner money and precious space while still enabling them to cool off during the summer.

Yost & Campbell was originally founded by Leo Yost and purchased by Tom Monahan, Kevin and Tom's father in 1965. Based in Mt. Vernon New York, the company serves Westchester, Rockland, Queens, Manhattan and the Bronx providing residential HVAC installation and maintenance as well as installation of standby generators for the home.

"Statistics show that every week nearly 3.5 million homeowners experience a power loss across the United States so it's no surprise that installing home generators has become a large part of our business. With the area's recent history of hurricanes and storms resulting in power outages, in some case lasting for days and even weeks, homeowners want to know that they have the power they need to run their refrigerator, freezer, security lights, pumps, security gates, and computer equipment when they need it and that's where the stand-alone generator comes in," stated Tom Monahan.

Monahan noted that generators can be installed for nearly any home regardless of age or size. The firm offers an energy analysis to determine the right size generator so that the homeowner doesn't buy one that is either too small or too big. While a homeowner can install their own generator, the automatic transfer switch needs to be installed by a licensed electrician to prevent back feeding to the power grid which can be dangerous to utility repairmen. Generators are installed outside the home to offer maximum safety and energy efficiency as well as the benefit of no hands-on set up or maintenance by the homeowner. Permanently installed generators are believed to be safer than portable units due to the fact that they do not require refueling during a power outage and are hooked directly into the home's electrical system as opposed to running extension cords. The latest generators test themselves once a week to make certain it is ready in an emergency.

Yost & Campbell is also an authorized and licensed contractor for the new Nest thermostat. The Nest learns the homeowner's heating and cooling preferences over the course of a week and adjusts itself going forward allowing for maximum energy efficiency of all heating and cooling systems in the house. Developed by former Apple engineers, the Nest is the most sought after technology in home thermostats today.

Motivating Graphics Installs Third Wohlenberg Perfect Binder From Colter & Peterson

Motivating Graphics Installs Third Wohlenberg Perfect Binder From Colter & Peterson










Paterson, NJ (PRWEB) March 14, 2007

Colter & Peterson, the largest independent distributor of paper cutters and paper handling equipment in North America, announces that Motivating Graphics, a full-service commercial printer with locations in Fort Worth, Texas, and Deerfield Beach, Florida, has ordered their third Wohlenberg perfect binder.

Motivating Graphics had purchased their first Wohlenberg perfect binder from Colter & Peterson four years ago. Due to the company's recent rapid expansion, they fulfilled their need for additional adhesive binding capacity with the installation of a Wohlenberg City 6000e early last year. Less than six months later, the company purchased a second City 6000e binder to keep pace with additional growth.

Both City 6000e binders are equipped to perform adhesive binding on a range of book sizes and formats. The Wohlenberg binders also include a host of automated features that reduce makeready times, enhance production speed and maximize the quality of every finished book.

Ray Glen Clark, owner of Motivating Graphics, said the company operates all three Wohlenberg binding lines 24 hours a day, seven days a week to keep pace with production volume.

"As fast and versatile as these binders are, we need to run them constantly to keep up with customer turnaround demands," said Clark. "We chose Wohlenberg binders in part because of their reputation for reliability. The parts and service support network offered by Colter & Peterson was equally important, as we knew we wouldn't be stuck if we had a problem. That peace of mind is essential if you're going to be running your binders non-stop."

Motivating Graphics also recently purchased several pieces of productivity-enhancing equipment, including a Baumann paper handler and pile turner, a 45" Prism cutter and a 69" Polar cutter.

"To make full use of these state-of-the-art binders requires state-of-the-art support equipment," said Clark, who estimated the paper handling and cutting system has enhanced productivity in these areas by more than 50 percent.

According to Clark, speed and reliability weren't the only considerations when Motivating Graphics selected Wohlenberg binders. The company goes to great lengths to ensure the quality and consistency of their finished products, including hand inspecting each book as it comes off each binder. That commitment to quality is key to their differentiation and has been a primary driver of their growth.

"Our customers come to us for our industry-leading attention to detail and promise of consistently outstanding quality," said Clark. "We carefully analyzed the production quality of every major binder manufacturer on the market, and felt that Wohlenberg binders produced the highest-quality book -- hands down."

Tom Welby, Regional Sales Representative for Colter & Peterson, said his company is proud to be a partner in the growth of Motivating Graphics.

"It's really no surprise why Motivating Graphics has enjoyed growth and success," said Welby. "They are committed to offering their customers a high-quality product and an enjoyable customer experience, and they recognize that's possible only with the best equipment. Colter & Peterson has helped them find that equipment for several years, and we look forward to continue doing so for years to come."

About Colter & Peterson: Colter & Peterson is the largest independent distributor of paper cutters and paper handling equipment in North America. Founded in 1932, C&P now employs over seventy five people working out of five locations in New Jersey, Iowa, California and Toronto, Canada. C&P is the manufacturer of the Microcut line of retrofit back gauge controllers and the worldwide distributor of Prism, Saber and Maxima paper cutters. It is also the North American distributor for all Wohlenberg, Baumann and Schneider Engineering products.
