eMazzanti Wins Finalist Slot for New York Enterprise Report 2012 Small Business Awards

Hoboken, NJ and New York City, NY (PRWEB) August 02, 2012

eMazzanti Technologies announces it is one of the finalists in the New York Enterprise Report Small Business Awards. The Hoboken/NYC-based IT support consultant submitted an entry in International Operations. With a single office in Hoboken, eMazzanti continues to grow its services to include the continental United States, Canada and countries in Europe,. The New York Enterprise Report produces an annual awards program honoring the achievements and accomplishments of the 500,000+ small businesses throughout the Tri-State area. The Small Business Awards program is featured throughout a 9-month campaign in The New York Enterprise Report. In its 7th year, the sold out 2006 2012 Awards program has an average attendance of 400 people and is referred to as the networking event of the year.

The 2012 winners will be announced at the Small Business Awards Gala, which will be held on Wednesday, October 10th from 6:00 pm-10:00 pm at The Metropolitan Pavilion in New York, NY. All finalists will be recognized on the NYER website, gala journal and at the event itself. In addition, winners will be featured in the November issue of The New York Enterprise Report, which is read by 100,000 tri-state business owners and executives.

There are four major reasons eMazzanti Technologies has won New York Enterprise Report accolades: Its use of teleconferencing, a custom productivity monitoring/tracking system for customers worldwide, the firms concentrated efforts to grow its business internationally and the ability to attract, training, incent and retain key employees.

Telepresence and Unified Communications Erase Geographical Barriers

No longer is the sales and service outreach of an outsource IT provider limited by geography. Video conferencing has replaced expensive in-person sales and support calls and unified communications has condensed faxes, emails, voice mail, IM, etc. to all be consolidated into a single communications stream directly to a single individual. As a result of the implementation of these business productivity solutions, neither eMazzanti nor its customers are bound by geography.

New Productivity Solutions Aids in International Expansion

Leveraging a new Productivity Monitoring System and video conferencing technology, eMazzanti was able to expand its addressable market to include the continental US, Canada and Europe while still having a single office based in Hoboken, NJ.

The video conferencing capability allowed eMazzanti to work "face-to-face" with several international parent companies along with their US satellite branches and counterparts that include: an international retail jeweler, European-based abrasives firm, and a worldwide fashion designer based in the UK.

eMazzanti leveraged new technology to create a Productivity Monitoring system to precisely track productivity in terms of customer service and employee engagement regardless of where its clients are located in the world. The unique technology continuously monitors 16 key indicators 24x7 associated with these two critical areas. The data for these two areas are 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.

Under the employee performance area, eMazzanti tracks hours worked by computer network engineer, billable utilization, revenue per month, customer satisfaction by engineer, and vacation time taken.

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.

20% of eMazzanti's Revenue Comes from Overseas Customers

Over the last three years, eMazzanti international sales have skyrocketed because of its ability to communicate and deliver a high level of customer service primarily due to deployment of new collaboration and productivity measurement technology.

Employees have doubled in 2011

During the last year, eMazzanti has been able to double its employees and increase individual productivity because of its new Productivity Monitoring System. Employee retention has been 100% as well.

Wanted: Teens Who Want Jobs Tomorrow

Hawthorne, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2012

Savvy students know that even having a college degree may not be enough to land a good job after graduation because the jobs just arent there. The unemployment rate for Americans aged 18-29 is 12.1% and 'unofficial' rates are much higher. More than 50% of recent grads are under or unemployed, according to a recent investigation by the Associated Press. It has been estimated that the U.S. needs to add about 250,000 jobs a month on a regular basis to bring the unemployment rate down to the level experienced prior to the 2007-2009 recession. So some students are taking action. They are building SaveOurWorkforce, an organization with a powerful database to harness consumer buying power and ultimately influence job creation and preservation in the U.S.

Not everyone votes but everyone spends money, explains Ross Mazzolini, a sophomore at Texas Tech University, and a principle founder of SaveOurWorkforce. Money is power and we can have a lot of power if we get organized and act together. SaveOurWorkforce helps people figure out which companies to buy from to best support our country. When companies that employ Americans cut U.S. jobs or shift jobs overseas, their decisions dramatically affect U.S. workers and their families. These companies are not out to hurt Americans; their intention is to lower costs and improve the bottom line. SaveOurWorkforce recognizes that these companies may exercise substantial power, but the resources of the American public are greater because Americans are their customers.

Consumers make choices everyday weighing factors such as quality, price, convenience and company reputation. SaveOurWorkforce is asking consumers to consider an important new factor before making a purchase - the companys commitment to American jobs. Consumers can verify a companys level of commitment by using the SaveOurWorkforce free website tool "Before-You-Buy, VERIFY". The premise of SaveOurWorkforce is that if enough people used their spending power to make the same demand, then ultimately business creating more U.S. jobs would become more profitable. Companies would be motivated to save U.S. jobs.

SaveOurWorkforce is recruiting students who are interested in developing valuable research, communication and career skills. The database was launched in June, 2012 with information about 100 large corporations. Students are needed to maintain and feed the SaveOurWorkforce database. Plans are to add about 40 companies a month. Im asking other college students and high school kids to form SaveOurWorkforce clubs, says Ross. We can show you how to get started and youll find out that its not hard to be part of something important. We even have a good time while we are doing something about our own future.

About SaveOurWorkforce:

Founded in 2012 by California teenagers Austin Mazzolini and his brother Ross, the mission of SaveOurWorkforce is to save and rebuild the U.S. workforce. The organization encourages the involvement of teenagers, companies and individuals throughout the country. Teens are asked to join or start campus clubs. Companies that join must pledge that they understand how important jobs are to families and the health of our nation and that they will do everything possible to keep jobs in America. Individuals are encouraged to try the Before-You-Buy, VERIFY free website tool at

Live Preview shows full previews of files being recovered before saving them onto the hard disk. The preview works in both free and licensed versions of Undelete Wizard, and is a great way to reassure users that the files being recovered will be restored indeed.

Supporting over 100 types of files, Smart Scan ensures that most important files and data are recovered.

CyberphobX Tries to Resurrect Point-and-Click Sci-fi Adventure Games with HeXit

(PRWEB) June 11, 2012

HeXit will be a point-and-click sci-fi adventure game resembling the popular Blade Runner game in the atmosphere of the new Total Recall movie remake. Everything in the game will be presented in the form of pre-rendered graphics, which gives the player a movie like experience. The developers are sci-fi fans, they like exciting stories and police procedural television series. They are trying to create a game combining these elements while focusing on a compelling storyline with twists and exciting adventures. There will be a whole new sci-fi world built up which exists as a realistic, richly-detailed and interactive atmospheric environment. Several side-stories and a detailed in-game world await those who enjoy exploring everything in a game. There will be countless usable items that can be combined. HeXit will also involve several mini-games. There will be English language voice acting for all in-game dialogues.

The Episodes

Just like the successful police procedural television series, HeXit is planned as an episodic adventure. The developers plan to release several installments. However, these episodes will take place in the same world and the player will dig deeper and deeper into its secrets. Currently, they are asking backers at Kickstarter to provide support for the making of the first episode, which will involve 6-10 hours of gameplay. If they collect the aimed $ 75,000 on Kickstarter, then completing the game would take the team approximately 8 months.

The Characters

The main character of the game is police Lieutenant Jane Davis who suddenly finds herself in the middle of a dangerous and exciting adventure. Everything seems to change around her. She used to be the hunter, but now she becomes the prey. She has to escape so that she could clarify herself. All episodes of the game will feature dozens of individual characters. They will include friends, enemies, robots and cyborgs.

The Team

Each member of the team has worked previously as game developers. Most of them have more than 10 years of experience in the video game industry.

They spent the last months creating a preliminary version of the HeXit adventure and now they are about to start developing the first adventure of HeXit after a successful Kickstarter campaign.

If you think, like the guys, that there is a demand for a science-fiction adventure game, then do not hesitate to visit their web page and their Kickstarter campaign for more information.

Ultramercial Launches Ultracelerator Co-Located Wi-Fi Ad Server That Gives Users a Lightning-Fast Experience, While Cutting Bandwidth to Zero

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 2, 2008

Ultramercial announced today the production and availability of its new Ultracelerator, a high-performance ad server and software package that is installed on-site at Wi-Fi locations.

"We designed this product to provide airports and hotels with our high CPM ad model, but without the latency and cost of constantly pulling that advertising from the Internet," said Jim Smith, Ultramercia's CTO. "We drop the ad-serving bandwidth to zero, while greatly enhancing the user experience."

Ultramercial has six years of experience marketing and serving their patented "attention-for-access" ad format, that asks users to engage with a 35 second full-screen interactive ad in exchange for premium content or services that would otherwise cost money.

The Ultracelerator comes pre-installed with Ultramercial's complete library of ads, and the software to integrate these ads into a hotspot's user experience.

"Users get an honest and clear value proposition from our ad model," said Ultramercial's director of ad sales on the west coast, Janelle Amrhein. "We've had phenomenal click-through rates with content sites like The Economist and ABC News, along with our free airtime minutes program with Virgin Mobile. Now, we're expanding to bring free Wi-Fi access to airports and hotels."

Ultramercial has already successfully powered Free-Fi's Wi-Fi access at both Denver International Airport and Oakland International Airport.

"The Ultracelerator is a 1U 19-inch rackmount server that brings the functionality of our CDN servers into a closed Wi-Fi environment," added Smith. "This unit offers users the choice between paying or engaging with the sponsor. A small percentage will want to pay, while the majority will choose the ad. Our partners are able to monetize the entire demand curve."

Ultracelerator's key advantages include:

Full-screen multi-page ads, rich in video and Flash, which are served directly from the unit.
The only outside bandwidth consumed is to load new campaigns and report on performance, greatly reducing the advertising bandwidth by 1000x or more. Additionally, this local deployment typically saves up to 33% of total bandwidth consumed at Ultramercial Wi-Fi partners' locations.
Latency is cut to near-zero. Users see Ultramercial ads immediately and never wait a moment for it to load.
The Ultracelerator is delivered with Ultramercial's proprietary and patented software pre-installed, plus their complete library of Ultramercial ad units. Customized user interfaces on a per-location basis can also be pre-loaded. New ads are uploaded remotely, and automatically.
Redundancy is built in. Mirrored drives and large RAM allocations make the unit fast and reliable.

Alpha Calc iPhone Calculator App Introduces 6 New Features Bringing an Apple – Like Interface to an Old Design

Greenville, SC (PRWEB) June 27, 2012

The Alpha Calc iPhone Calculator App offers a new and better user interface for calculators that have been around for decades. With the advent of new technologies such as the iPhone, it is time for innovative designs to surface. As an example, one of the outdated features of the calculator is the memory button. The memory button has been removed in Alpha Calc, and replaced with numerous customizable buttons. The user can customize these buttons with virtually any number, such as answers to equations or regularly used numbers like tax rates.

"Have you ever used a calculator and looked at it for more than 15 seconds trying to find a button? Ever looked at a button for more than 15 seconds to figure out what it meant? Ever had the buttons so small and out of place that you hit that same wrong button multiple times? We have. We thought we could do better." said James Allen of

Alpha Calc was designed specifically to feel natural and unobtrusive. Alpha Calc has 6 innovative and unique features missing from other calculators:

1) Swipe - Its very easy to use. All 65 buttons on the keyboard are accessible by swiping left or right on the display just as you would on your iPhone home screen. By doing it this way, buttons are large, obvious and can still be fit on one screen.

2) Custom Buttons - It is a Customizable Calculator! If you swipe to the left there are *20 customizable buttons. By holding down a button you can save the current expression or your last answer to a button (2, 3/2, (Ans)^2, Ans+Ans^2, etc.)

3) Scrolling History - If the user needs to refer back to old calculations, one can always scroll through your history by swiping your current answer. Then, by tapping a previous answer or expression, it will be put in the current Expression Bar.

4) Function Solvers - For those next level mathematics maneuvers, Alpha Calc has function solvers for The Quadratic Formula, The Pythagorean Theorem, Area Formulas, and more.

5) Inserting Parenthesis - To allow for the quick stream of problem solving, Alpha Calc doesnt care about end parenthesis. Entering something like Ln(3(cos(7 would be interpreted like Ln(3(cos(7))), because Alpha Calculator knows what you want.

6) Editing Expressions - You can quickly and easily edit an expression just as you would an e-mail or text message on your iPhone. Just hold down on the expression and you can slide your finger to the item you want to edit.

A calculator should do more than just calculations. It shouldn't make solving a problem take longer than doing it by hand. There shouldnt be time wasted fiddling through buttons you cant find or understand. The Alpha Calc iPhone Calculator App fills the need for the classic calculator while adding innovative features that all iPhone users will be instantly comfortable with.

The user will start with 4 custom buttons and 4 formulas. Included is an in-app purchase of 99 cents which will open up all custom buttons and formulas.

Plans for the future include: A Universal Version which will support iPad, Additional Functions, Different Color Schemes, Advanced Button Creation, the Ability to Move Any Button and much more!
