How to Power Gadgets While in Nature

I spent three days camping and hiking in the mountains of Utah last week and used my iPhone to snap the above photo while slightly downhill from the summit of Mount Timpanogos, which has an elevation of 11,749 feet.  In preparation for this trip, I researched for a sustainable, backpacker-worthy solution to keeping my iPhone powered in order to take photos, jot notes, listen to music, and maybe communicate with family when presented with an available signal.  I don’t have an iPad, but this solution works for both iPhones and iPads, either one.  Here’s what you need:

#1: Instapark 10-watt Portable Solar Charger
Price: ~$70 on Amazon.

This foldable, 10-watt package has a pocket with the USB charging ports to keep your gadgets unexposed while the panels harvest energy from the sun.  I received a defective version, and the manufacturer immediately replaced the product.

#2: Anker Astro2 Dual-USB 8400 mAh Battery Pack
Price: ~$55 on Amazon.

A battery pack gives you the ability to store power to charge your iPhone even when there’s no available sun.  I powered the Astro2 with my solar panels and got several phone charges out of this little workhorse.

#3: Nite Ize Gear Ties 6-Inch
Price: ~$6 (2-Pack) on Amazon.

Nite Ize makes colorful gear ties that can be used to strap solar panels to your backpack, tent, or anything else.  With two sets of these ties, you can strap the solar panels to the top and bottom of your backpack and bank solar power all day.

What do you use to keep powered while in the middle of nature?

ShoreGroup Announces Next Generation Business Intelligence Solution for Enterprise Contact Centers

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 23, 2008

ShoreGroup, Inc., a premier systems management solutions and IT professional services firm, today announced that its SextantTM Contact Center Analytics solution for Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise will debut at the 2008 Cisco Live Conference in Orlando, FL. Sextant is an easy to use, web-based business intelligence solution that empowers contact center management with the information they need to effectively manage critical business processes and performance.

To provide the visibility that enterprise contact centers require, Sextant systematically obtains contact center metrics from across the Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise, including carrier networks, IP and TDM contact centers, IVR systems, databases, desktop applications, agents and other resources. The information is stored in the normalized Sextant database, where meaningful relationships are formed that do not exist in contact center system database. Configurable logic specific to the contact center’s business processes, such as data access, geographical locations, role-based views, groupings and financial detail, is then applied to create a rich set of metadata that is presented in powerful real-time dashboard and historical report visualizations.

“Traditional reporting solutions have supplied contact center management with raw metrics. A major shortcoming of that approach is that there’s no actual correlation to the contact center’s business processes that must be managed,” said Jean-Pierre Ferrada, ShoreGroup’s Contact Center Services Practice Director and industry reporting expert. “With the size and complexity of today’s distributed contact centers the volume of data is staggering, and the need for effective visualization and management across the entire enterprise has never been greater. Sextant’s ability to transform raw data into timely and meaningful business intelligence, and to get that power into the hands that can act upon it, allows organizations to realize the full potential that Cisco’s enterprise contact center solution can offer.”

“Sextant’s capabilities were conceived from the perspective of enterprise contact center management, and what resources they need to succeed. For instance, in addition to our dynamic dashboard displays and reporting, we’ve added KPIs that continuously monitor current center performance across services, call types, skill groups and agents in comparison to established objectives. When KPIs are violated, an incident ticket is opened and management responsible for that specific business process can be immediately notified via email or mobile device,” said Robert McDermott, ShoreGroup’s Vice President of Convergence. “Together with our CaseSentry Systems Management platform that monitors the availability and performance of contact center systems and networks, the addition of Sextant forms a comprehensive integrated management portal that unites contact center engineering and business teams in a common quest for continual service improvement.”

The Sextant Contact Center Analytics Suite is a complete turnkey Reporting as a Service (RaaS) solution. It overcomes the barriers that organizations have in building and maintaining contact center reporting solutions by providing management consultation, system implementation, hardware and software, and ongoing support.

ShoreGroup’s solutions will be demonstrated June 23rd through 26th within the Cisco Live World of Solutions Expo, held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL.

Leading Document Management Solution Provider Announces Rise in Demand for Invoice Automation

Mansfield, MA (PRWEB) May 04, 2011

IntelliChief LLC, the leading provider of Paperless Process Management (PPM) solutions for the IBM I (System i, iSeries, AS/400) Enterprise, is most often implemented initially in Accounts Payable, before customers expand to other departments.

An increasing number of organizations are motivated to bring their Accounts Payable (AP) departments paperless, as paper based AP procedures are inherently problematic due to potential human errors, security issues and the susceptibility to paper loss or destruction.

As IntelliChief brings AP departments paperless, users notice processes like shuffling around invoices, approvals, and filing paperwork are now electronic, allowing for easier accessibility, quicker turnaround, and higher efficiency. “IntelliChief users find their AP department is able to control payment of invoices, take advantage of vendor discounts, and have visibility to outstanding invoices,” said Michael Rooney, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at IntelliChief.

Processes that used to be manual are now automated with IntelliChief. Invoices are received automatically via fax and are electronically sorted and distributed. Approvals are routed to the correct inbox, vouchers are entered automatically, while invoices are archived based on set rules. Processes like searching for documentation and orders is all based off a simple search function to make resolving discrepancies an easy process.

A major advantage IntelliChief has is its seamless integration with countless applications, allowing IntelliChief users to find and retrieve documents directly from their desktop or ERP screen. Users will realize immediate access to purchase orders, acknowledgements, statements, receiving documents, invoices, and checks directly from their familiar computer screens. IntelliChief LLC will be at TAWPI Fusion 2011 in Orlando, FL from May 8-12, presenting their Paperless Process Management solutions, advising companies to go paperless, and take control of invoice processing.

TAWPI Fusion is the premier event for financial operations professionals. As more financial departments move to paperless, IntelliChief looks forward to presenting their document management product at TAWPI Fusion. Financial departments looking for electronic workflow and interested in a paperless environment can find a vast amount of information on document management at the IntelliChief booth #1316.

IntelliChief LLC welcomes attendees to stop by the IntelliChief booth #1316 to discuss document management options and solutions.

Intelligent Decisions, Inc., to Exhibit Cutting-Edge IDOptimize Solution at 2011 LandWarNet Conference in Tampa

Ashburn, VA (PRWEB) August 15, 2011

Intelligent Decisions (ID) Inc., a premier global IT systems integrator, will be exhibiting its cutting-edge IDOptimize solution at “LandWarNet 2011: Transforming Cyber While at War” from August 23 to 25 in Tampa, FL. IDOptimize helps military, government and commercial airlines by rapidly collecting and interpreting critical situational awareness and providing a comprehensive security umbrella. Situational awareness includes the collection and interpretation of logs, communication reliability, viruses and vulnerabilities. Any field operator can easily be trained on how to use IDOptimize, a user-friendly solution that ultimately minimizes costs while maximizing results.

Unlike more reliable wired connections on the ground, air-to-ground and satellite links are susceptible to a large number of interferences, and equipment malfunctions, that make certain connections unreliable as a primary way to detect and prevent network and cyber attacks. IDOptimize assists in preventing cyber attacks by hackers by implementing a continuous monitoring security solution. This is particularly important on high visibility, mission critical communications networks that are considered targets for security attacks.

?LandWarNet is an elite gathering of key leaders for the purposes of sharing best practices and government application of those practices,? said Harry Martin, President and CEO of Intelligent Decisions. ?Intelligent Decisions welcomes the opportunity to showcase its cutting-edge solutions like IDOptimize, which is focused on providing the military, government and civilian airline industries with the latest in IT tools and resources necessary to help ensure security.?

LandWarNet participants include senior U.S. Department of Defense, Army military and civilian leadership, as well as significant representation from the commercial industry. The conference is being hosted by AFCEA International, a nonprofit membership association serving the military, government, industry and academia as an ethical forum for advancing professional knowledge and relationships in the fields of communications, IT, intelligence and global security.

In order to better serve its Department of Defense clients and partners in the community, Intelligent Decisions recently expanded its U.S. offices to Tampa. This is the second office that the company has in Florida, Intelligent Decisions? Simulation and Training Division is located in Orlando.

LandWarNet will be held at the Tampa Convention Center. To learn more, please go to http://www.AFCEA.org/.
