National Association of Professional Women Announces Carolyn Hollingsworth, Senior IT Manager of Lennox International, as VIP Woman of the Year


Garden City, NY (PRWEB) December 24, 2013

NAPW honors Carolyn Hollingsworth as a 2013/2014 Professional Woman of the Year for leadership in business and management with this prestigious distinction. As the largest, most-recognized organization of women in the country, spanning virtually every industry and profession, the National Association of Professional Women is a powerfully vibrant networking community with over 600,000 members and nearly 400 local chapters.

As senior manager for Lennox International, Ms. Hollingsworth has been the major force for improving the efficiency of its IT repair. She explains in a recent interview, “I’ve extended help desk applications out in the field, which has been a significant cost-saving measure for Lennox.”

A computer crash for a leading HVAC equipment manufacturer company such as Lennox could cost the company millions of dollars for as long as that system stays down. Many of Lennox's manufacturing processes are automated, and if the PC running a line goes down, the line stops. Reducing downtime is exactly why the $ 3.7 billion company began looking for ways to improve the efficiency of its IT repair process. Deployment of BMC Software’s Remedy Solution, although effective, was not the entire solution.

By giving techs access to the solution from the field, Ms. Hollingsworth solved the loss of downtime problem. She contributed to extending the help desk applications out to the individuals that actually go and fix equipment. Techs also now have an immediate view of a job's priority; more pressing trouble tickets show up higher in their work cues, so techs are always working on the most critical issues.

NAPW Provides an exclusive, highly advanced networking forum to successful women executives, professionals and entrepreneurs where they can aspire, connect learn and achieve. Through innovative resources, unique tools and progressive benefits, professional women interact, exchange ideas, advance their knowledge and empower each other.

They have shown great support for our recent decisions to expand our portfolio to include premium spirits and new wine brands from Spain, Argentina and Chile. We enthusiastically supported Bennett’s recent decision to appoint Sheldon 'Shelly' Stein to lead Glazer’s into their next growth phase.”

“Peter and I have forged an excellent relationship and we were able quickly to come to terms on this break-through agreement that will help both companies benefit from the accelerated growth of the Deutsch wine and spirits brands,” said Shelly Stein, Glazer’s Distributors President & CEO.

“As a third generation family business that just celebrated its 100th birthday, we highly value our partnership with Bill and Peter Deutsch, and welcome the opportunity to build upon our long-standing partnership.

NEF CyberLearning Announces a STEM+ Academy Opening for the 2013-2014 School Year in Kansas City School District at Northwest Middle School

Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) August 24, 2013

The 2013-2014 school year will see the opening of Kansas City School District's and NEF-Cyberlearning STEM Academy. The National Education Foundation (NEF), the national non-profit leader in STEM+ education, announced this week that it is partnering with the State University of New York, TEKSystems, Pearson Education and Skillsoft to advance STEM+ education in 14 school districts during the 2013-14 school year.

Along with the selected school district in Kansas, STEM academies will also be in: Wendell (ID), Salida and Garvey (CA), Merrillville (IN), Fort Meade (MD), Center Line and Mesick (MI), Canton (NY), Tri-Valley (PA), Williamsburg (SC), Dallas and Laredo (TX), and Seattle (WA). All these school districts are in high poverty areas and are classified as disadvantaged by the US Education Department.

The goal of this initiative is to close the STEM+ (science, technology, engineering, math, English, social studies, SAT/ACT, IT and business) skills gap in the United States. By creating an effective school-nonprofit-university-business partnership, NEF can more effectively provide 21st century STEM+ education to disadvantaged K-12 students. The initiative also focuses on supporting the larger American Competitiveness Initiative (ACI) to keep the United States competitive in critical STEM-related fields.

The innovative academy program advances a student one grade level in a subject in 20-30 learning hours by providing personalized learning, teacher stipends, learning management system, mentoring, motivational rewards for students and parents, teacher training and tech support.

U.S. is ranked 25th out of 34 countries in math and 17th out of 34 countries in science. NEF has been advocating school-college-business partnerships to improve the critical STEM+ education in our nations schools since 2012. President Obama advocated such a partnership in the 2013 State of the Union speech. We hope to expand our STEM+ initiative significantly in the coming years, states Dr. Appu Kuttan, founder and chairman of NEF.

SC Whitmore Virtual Charter School Embarks on Another School Year with CompuHigh Curriculum


South Carolina (PRWEB) August 21, 2013

Kids across the nation are sharpening up their new pencils and lacing up their new shoes to dash for the bus on the first day of school. Meanwhile, SC Whitmore students first day of school might look a good bit more low key to an outside observer. At SC Whitmore School, students simply log on to their classes from any computer, whether theyve put on their new school clothes and headed to the library or are still in their pajamas working at their kitchen table.

Enrollment at SC Whitmore virtual charter high school in South Carolina is up 70% as it begins its third year of classes this week. SC Whitmore curriculum will be provided again this year by CompuHigh. CompuHigh has been providing online high school curriculum since 1994 and specializes in courses designed especially for mastery learning. Mastery learning allows students to continue to work on a concept until they get it before moving on to the next lesson. Course assignments focus on skills acquisition and critical thinking with minimal rote tasks or multiple choice assignments. Lessons are designed for student to work individually with a teacher through multiple revisions of the assignments.

According to SC Whitmore School Principal, Ellen Ray, Students and parents have discovered that mastery-learning and a self-paced curriculum mean more flexibility and academic success. Students are not held back, or pushed ahead while working at the pace of a course in a traditional semester-based school calendar. Accelerated students move ahead and may graduate early, and even earn college credit while in high school. Students needing more time to complete a course are allowed to take the time they need, and are given the opportunity to complete courses in the summer. We call it 'School Your Way!

CompuHighs curriculum is accredited by AdvancED and approved by the state of South Carolina. Courses are taught by SC Whitmores licensed teachers specially trained in Mastery Online Education. The curriculum and teacher interaction pair up to create intensive, individualized learning experiences for high school students, according to CompuHigh Educational Director, Jeannette Geib. So, while the first day of school may look low key for SC Whitmore students, what is actually happening is anything but! Students are actively reading, listening, researching, thinking, writing, and asking their teachers questions. Students are working hard, says Geib, and above all, theyre really learning.

SC Whitmore School is still accepting new students for the 2013-2014 school year. Interested families can go to http://www.sc.whitmoreschool.com or call 1-866-476-6416 for more details and to apply.

eMazzanti Tapped as WatchGuard NYC Partner of the Year 2013

Hoboken, NJ and NYC, NY (PRWEB) July 09, 2013

eMazzanti Technologies, IT support and computer consultant in the Hoboken, NJ and New York City areas, is named the New York City Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) Partner of the Year 2013 by WatchGuard Technologies, a network security industry leader.

The purpose of the partner recognition program is to showcase outstanding performance, noted Jim Mulholland, Northeast Regional Sales Manager, WatchGuard Technologies. When our partners demonstrate excellence, we know our customers are in good hands.

The WatchGuard NYC MSSP Partner of the Year award is based on three key criteria: customer service, certification and sales.

Anticipation: eMazzantis New Standard in Customer Service

eMazzanti has established a higher level of customer service for WatchGuard customers by solving many problems before the customer is even aware.

eMazzanti leveraged new technology to create a Productivity Monitoring system to precisely track productivity and address many potential IT problems even before they occur. The unique technology continuously monitors 16 key indicators 24x7 and is generated from the companys job ticketing system.

For example, under the customer service area, eMazzanti has real-time monitoring of customer satisfaction rating trends, open tickets by status, open tickets by tech, open tickets by service type, net change Open/Close ration, tickets resolved by tech, and ticket trends.

For each area monitored, eMazzanti has the results continuously displayed as multiple charts and graphs on three 60 monitors strategically located around the office. In fact, one monitor is placed near the main door so employees can see exactly how the firm is doing with its customers first thing in the morning when they arrive for work and the last thing they as they leave. All employees are also reminded of their personal and team contribution on a daily basis.

In addition, one or more techs are on call all night long to make sure customer networks are up and running, resolving issues before the customer is even aware.

RMA Automation: Building Customer Satisfaction and Loyalty

One of the significant benefits of eMazzanti being one of WatchGuards premier partners is the streamlined Return Materials Authorization (RMA) process. When a piece of WatchGuard gear goes down, customers no longer have to worry about justifying an RMA authorization, scheduling shipments, shipping the item or receiving it back again. All of this is handled directly by eMazzanti. "We inventory a variety of WatchGuard firewalls which we use to immediately replace warranted equipment," said Mazzanti. "WatchGuard then has automated the RMA process for us so we get rapid replacements, no questions asked all while the customers network is already up that same day. From there we ship the replacement unit from WatchGuard to our office for use in any future outages."

Certification: Proof of Expertise

Another key ingredient to being NY MSSP Partner of the Year is making sure all engineers and service personnel are properly WatchGuard trained and certified. Each of the eMazzanti service team is fully certified to diagnose and repair the depth and breadth of WatchGuards full line of network security solutions. This assures eMazzanti customers the highest level of support.

Three Time Partner of the Year

eMazzanti Technologies has been a WatchGuard Partner of the Year three years.

Its exciting to have partners like eMazzanti aboard, said Mulholland. They have the passion and professionalism that we want our customers to experience. Were very pleased with their dedication and results.
