Fiberon Decking Announces Top Three Winning Outdoor Living Space Designs from FiberPRO Photo Contest

New London, North Carolina (PRWEB) May 29, 2014

Building an outdoor living space that suits the exact needs of an individual requires critical thinking and creativity. The deck builders who employ Fiberons FiberPRO services understand how to exceed their clients standards and build outdoor living space masterpieces.

Judged by social media users, the three winners are Buz Gardiner of Gardiner Construction, Inc., Robert Shaw of Colorado Deck and Framing, and Ivana Biela of Echelon Custom Homes.

These three winning photos represent quality craftsmanship. Using durable, elegant, and environmentally friendly materials, these home improvement specialists have created remarkable decking products that are equally beautiful and functional.

In this way, the winners not only create quality work, but they also fulfill the unique needs of their clients. The third-place winner, for example, consists of a two-story design that promotes recreation and rest with a deck that enables swimming in the pool and reading on the balcony.

According to Fiberons Director of Marketing Communications, Edie Kello, all three winners embody the best parts of life.

Our first-place winner, Buz Gardiner, designed a rounded deck that creates a special space, conducive to both social get-togethers and alone time. Simply look at the design, and you can see yourself doing anything you want out there, a dance floor or a place for solitude or meditation. Thats what Fiberon FiberPROs create for their clients.

With the voting responsibility placed in Facebook and Twitter users hands, fans of Fiberon cast their ballots for a variety of reasons. From design elements to the inclusion of recreational accessories, the comments centered on any number of elements.

With this free-for-all voting approach, Fiberons VP of marketing, Shellie Sellards discusses how the FiberPRO Photo Contest ended up being a close call.

Just a few votes separated the three winners. Only 27 Facebook Likes came between the first- and second-place winners. It could have gone either way, especially since voters particularly enjoyed the high output fire pit centered in Robert Shaws creation. Even though it took second-place, this outdoor living space easily could have won first-place.

With National Enjoy Your Deck Day not far off on June 7, this photo contest should give more than a few ideas on how to celebrate. To find out more about this contest and the upcoming deck day celebration, visit Fiberons website at http://www.fiberondecking.com.

Siteimprove Announces Customer Learning Platform

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 04, 2014

Siteimprove Academy, the customer learning platform, currently offers courses on website accessibility and website governance, the first of their kind to be offered online.

Siteimprove Academy allows us to rapidly deploy and grow a knowledge base for our customers, adding value to our software, said Siteimproves eLearning spokesperson Kevin Rydberg. Weve already offered the tools to make their site better, and now were offering the understanding to use those tools to their maximum potential.

As the importance of an organizations website becomes their primary face to the outside world, the quality of their web presence becomes increasingly important, Rydberg said. The Web Accessibility Certification and Web Governance Certification courses provide website managers with the knowledge to structure their team and website more effectively. These are invaluable skill sets for modern web managers, contributors, and developers, for which training simply isn’t available anywhere else in a digestible classroom environment like Siteimprove Academy.

Website accessibility, the practice of making websites usable for people with disabilities, is an increasingly-legislated and little-understood topic Siteimprove hopes to shed light on through the new courses.

According to recent studies, one in five people in the United States claim some form of disability. These people have a right to equal access of public information, and their exclusion can make a serious difference in an organizations bottom line, Rydberg said. Siteimprove Academys accessibility certification course builds understanding and best practices for making websites accessible.

Website governance, the practice of structuring roles, regulations, and policies pertaining to website maintenance, is a similarly little-known practice in modern website teams. The idea of governance has long been used by organizations to structure themselves more effectively, and only recently has the idea of applying those techniques to a web team begun to grab attention.

Not only have volumes of online publishing exploded in recent years, but so has the sophistication and number of platforms to be supported, said Shane Diffily, author of the Siteimprove Web Governance Certification Course. From web to intranets to social media, this challenge is putting considerable strain on web teams. Web Governance courses are necessary to help put order to all this complexity.

To learn more about Siteimprove Academy, please contact Kevin Rydberg.

SupplierSoft Announces Multiple Wins with S&P 500 Customers for Conflict Minerals Software

Sunnyvale, California (PRWEB) January 22, 2014

SupplierSoft Inc, a pioneer in cloud-computing based supplier relationship management software, today announced several wins for its Conflict Minerals Software, including multiple S&P 500 customers.

SupplierSoft Conflict Minerals Solution helps manufacturers comply with SEC filing requirements as defined in section 1502 of Dodd-Frank Act. Starting in 2014, public US companies and certain foreign companies must declare in their annual SEC filing whether they have Tantalum, Tin, Gold or Tungsten (3TG) in their products, and if so whether these metals originate from mines fueling civil conflict in one of nine covered countries in Africa. While SEC estimates that 6000 US companies will be required to file a Conflict Minerals Report, the expected supply chain ripple will require as many as 12,000 US companies and potentially 195,000 companies to perform some level of supply chain analysis. SupplierSoft automates the achilles heel of Conflict Minerals Management – reaching out to suppliers, collecting and validating supplier responses, and finally rolling-up supplier responses so that companies can do their SEC filings or respond to customer inquiries. The software supports the industry standard EICC/GeSI Template (Conflict Minerals Reporting Template) created by the Conflict Free Sourcing Initiative (CFSI). The system delivers rapid ROI through improved productivity, reduced risk of errors and improved customer satisfaction.

In an era of relentless outsourcing, the Conflict Minerals reporting requirement represents yet another example of business processes where manufacturers must efficiently collaborate with their suppliers whether it is on compliance, quality or commercial aspects of the relationship. To effectively manage suppliers in this environment, companies are looking for strategic Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) cloud-based platforms that can help them manage all facets of a supplier relationship and are quick-to-implement, while delivering quick ROI,” said Balu Sharma, CEO of SupplierSoft. “We are excited to have multiple S&P 500 customers select SupplierSoft after doing an extensive review of 10+ different software vendors.

Dr. Mike Hamilton of Inception Chiropractic Websites Announces the Release of Twelve Free Chiropractic Marketing Programs

Clinton, IA (PRWEB) December 15, 2013

Internet marketing expert, Dr. Mike Hamilton, has recently announced the release of twelve free chiropractic marketing programs. This is a compilation of work that helped Dr. Hamilton and his wife Dr. Aimee Hamilton build a 500 visit per week practice in less than two years.

When contacted at his office, Dr. Hamilton said, We’re coming to that time of the year when chiropractic offices are slowing down and doctors have time to start working on their marketing plans for next year. Most chiropractors spend thousands of dollars investing in rehashed programs that don’t get to the core of what they need. I decided this year to give a huge gift to the doctors that need help. All of the detailed marketing information that we used in our office is now available on our website at no cost.

Dr. Hamilton went on to say, Most doctors fail at marketing because they don’t understand the real secret to success. They believe that someone else is going to do it for them if they throw enough money at it. The reality is that they need to become marketing expert themselves. It saves them money and produces much better results.

Finally, Dr. Hamilton said, The one problem with what I’m doing is that most doctors ignore things that are free. If I charged $ 2000 for this information I would probably have more people actually implement the ideas, but at this point I want everyone to have access.

To learn more about the free marketing programs, please visit Dr. Hamilton’s website at: http://www.inception-chiropractic-websites.com/chiropractic-marketing-101.html

Dr. Mike Hamilton is the co-owner of Inception Chiropractic Websites. He and his wife work each and every day to help doctors of chiropractic reach their online marketing goals. They hope that the information they provide can help you grow your chiropractic business.

Leading Infrastructure Firm Announces Winners of Strategic Project of the Year Award

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) November 01, 2013

The nations leading strategic infrastructure firm CG/LA Infrastructure today announced the winners of its coveted Project of the Year award as voted upon by infrastructure industry insiders.

These transformative infrastructure investments are critical to our economic security and worldwide competitiveness, CG/LA Infrastructure President and CEO Norman F. Anderson said. The Project of the Year awards honor the innovative construction initiatives and the visionaries who are leading them that will help to shape the North American economic landscape into a global powerhouse for the future.

Project of the Year awards are given in five categories covering strategy, financing, engineering, job creation and the environment. All projects have specific business opportunities to be realized in the next three to 18 months.

The winners announced at the 5th Annual North American Strategic Infrastructure Leadership Forum at the historic Mayflower Renaissance Hotel in Washington, D.C. are as follows:

The $ 8.2 billion East Side Access project in New York and the $ 1.5 billion Louisiana International Gulf Transfer Terminal (LIGTT) tied for the Strategic Project of the Year for their potential to generate a historic leap in a country or region’s productivity and/or competitiveness.

The East Side Access project will connect the Long Island Rail Road’s (LIRR) Main and Port Washington lines in Queens to a new LIRR terminal beneath Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan. The new connection will increase the LIRR’s capacity into Manhattan, and dramatically shorten travel time for Long Island and eastern Queens commuters traveling to the east side of Manhattan.

LIGTT is envisioned to be transshipment and logistics hub-and-spoke system for containerized cargo. A purpose of the hub-and-spoke system is to effectively address emerging challenges resulting from fundamental changes in the international container shipping industry. The centerpiece of the system is a deep-water cargo container transfer terminal to be located on 250 acres (101.17 hectares) of state-owned property south of River Mile 0 of the Mississippi River.

The $ 1.4 billion Cotton Belt Rail Line connecting Dallas and Fort Worth is the Finance Project of the Year that establishes and/or most extends an innovative finance model, moving closer to more efficient and faster infrastructure investment.

The 62-mile commuter rail project will link the northeast Dallas suburbs to downtown Fort Worth including a stop near the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and beyond into Tarrant County and ending in Plano.

The $ 5 billion New Bridge over the St. Lawrence River in Quebec is the Engineering Project of the Year that extends or demonstrates the region’s technical engineering capacity, especially including innovative design and creative problem-solving.

The Canadian government is building a new bridge corridor to replace the existing Champlain Bridge in Montreal. It will span the St. Lawrence River to connect the Island of Montreal to the South Shore. This is the busiest crossing in Canada for cars, trucks and buses, and is vital to the regional and national economies.

The $ 2 Billion Detroit River International Crossing has been named the Job/Opportunity Creation Project of the Year that will create the greatest number of jobs and/or businesses over the lifetime of the project.

The Detroit River International Crossing will be a six-lane bridge between Windsor, Ontario and Detroit that will provide new border crossing capacity to meet the increased international trade and travel demand over the long term, while simultaneously improving the regional connectivity of people and goods.

The project will be procured as a public-private partnership and will include an 850-meter main span, customs plazas on both sides of the border, and major interchanges in Michigan.

The Rialto Water Services Infrastructure Improvement Plan is the New Infrastructure Project of the Year that makes the greatest difference in the region’s green agenda, from solar, wind and geothermal to energy efficiency and technology applications.

The city of Rialto and Rialto Water Services (RWS) are using a public-private concession model one rarely seen in the United States to strengthen the city’s financial position and improve infrastructure services. As part of that concession, RWS hired Veolia Water North America, a Veolia Water subsidiary, to manage the city’s water and wastewater systems.

The financing mode is highly original, as the city of Rialto has received $ 35 million in an upfront cash payment and secured $ 41 million in funding for future water and wastewater system improvements through a concession contract signed with RWS, a special purpose company established by Table Rock Capital and an Ullico affiliate.

Project of the Year award winners were selected among the Strategic Top 100 North American Infrastructure Projects, valued at $ 435 billion. The 5th North American Strategic Leadership Forum is designed to double the level of infrastructure investment in North America, and dramatically improve the quality and productivity of that investment.

These are examples of ambitious and forward-looking projects that will ensure North America is modernizing its infrastructure to position itself as a world-class system that is the envy of the world, said Doug Eberhard, Senior Director of Infrastructure Development for Autodesk, sponsor of the 2013 North American Project of the Year awards. They are the investments that will put hundreds of thousands of people back to work and are critical to the health and continued economic growth of this country.
