PACE Fitness Adds Nutrition Program to Offer Health Clubs and Members a Total Wellness Package in Time for New Years

PACE Fitness Adds Nutrition Program to Offer Health Clubs and Members a Total Wellness Package in Time for New Years










Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (PRWEB) December 23, 2010

PACE Fitness has been marketing its hydraulic circuit training equipment to women’s fitness centers and coed health clubs for over 20 years. PACE has now joined with the Medical/Weight Management Industry’s leader in the development of weight management products to offer an extensive line of meal replacements and protein supplements which have been scientifically designed to meet the nutritional needs of the Low Calorie dieter just in time for New Year’s Resolution memberships.

PACE President Rande LaDue states, “We have always suggested our health club customers offer some type of nutrition program to their members, but up until this point, we have never offered anything. We are happy to introduce our comprehensive program to help facilitate faster results for members and increased profits for the clubs. Exercise alone is only half of the wellness equation; now our health customers can offer a complete package.”

“January is typically the busiest month of the year for health clubs; however, it is even busier for weight loss centers because of the intimidation factor. Overweight people typically are too intimidated to join conventional health clubs. Our non-intimidating hydraulic equipment has helped many clubs overcome this hurdle; however, without a nutrition program, clubs are not offering what these people want and need as well as missing out on a great deal of profit.”

“Simplicity has always been a key factor to the success of our hydraulic circuit program. The same holds true with our new nutrition program. Our turn-key start up package for clubs includes staff training, marketing and program manuals as well as a start up supply of products for immediate sales.”

PACE Nutrition products will be available direct to the consumer through its website pacefitnessandnutrition.com for those areas without a PACE club nearby.

No Limits Software joins BMC Technology Alliance Program (TAP) to automate data center change management

No Limits Software joins BMC Technology Alliance Program (TAP) to automate data center change management











No Limits Software – RaMP


St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 10, 2011

No Limits Software has joined the BMC Technology Alliance Program (TAP) to integrate their Rack Management Platform (RaMP) data center management solution with BMC Remedy Change Management.

Integration with Remedy Change Management will provide several key advantages over data center management systems which rely on manual entry of system changes. First, automated collection of system configuration data improves data accuracy while greatly reducing the time and cost of manually collecting the data. Second, automated snapshots of the configuration data will allow data center managers to quickly find system changes which may result in system outages, reducing mean time to repair (MTTR) and increasing system availability.

Integration with Remedy Change Management will allow automated verification that a scheduled task was completed and will also highlight changes which were made without going through the change authorization process.

It is estimated that 80% of outages are due to a change and 80% of MTTR is trying to find out what changed. By looking at the changes for the affected asset, problem managers can typically recommend a fix to the problem over 80% of the time with a first fix rate of over 90%.

If you only look at authorized changes, however, you may be missing changes which were made outside of the process. Organizations which implement automated change auditing are usually alarmed to see how many changes are being made ‘under the radar’. The ability to track both authorized changes and detected changes – changes made but not necessarily authorized – is key functionality needed to reduce MTTR and increase overall system availability.

If problem managers can use the list of detected changes to recommend a fix 80% of the time and 90% of these recommendations result in a solution, this means we’ve reduce the time to diagnose the problem by 72%. Since the diagnosis phase represents 80% of the total MTTR, automated change management can reduce MTTR by 58%. At the same time, we’ve also reduced the amount of labor required to troubleshoot and resolve problems by a similar amount.

RaMP provides the following capabilities:

Automated Asset Management

— 100% data accuracy through the automated discovery of detailed device information

— Automatically track device location down to the rack unit

— Software license management

— Real-time data center auditing for IT asset accounting compliance (Sarbanes-Oxley, CFR-11)

— Automated change control to reduce MTTR and increase availability

— Web services API provides integration with other asset and change management systems

Real-Time Monitoring

— Power and environmental monitoring down to the device level

— Server monitoring to identify servers which should be retired, virtualized or consolidated

— Identify servers which are not using power management

Enhanced Capacity Planning

— More accurate capacity planning data helps to reduce stranded power and shutdown risks

About No Limits Software

No Limits Software is a leading provider of data center management solutions, including asset management, capacity planning, and power and environmental monitoring. No Limits Software’s patent-pending solution is unique in that it automates asset management to the rack unit. The RaMP solution eliminates the need for physical audits, dramatically reduces the time to find and repair equipment, improves system availability and improves data center energy efficiency by providing accurate capacity planning.

Tennis Canada, Squash Canada and Alpine Ontario Among Newest Members of ScreenScape Sponsored Network Adoption Program

Tennis Canada, Squash Canada and Alpine Ontario Among Newest Members of ScreenScape Sponsored Network Adoption Program










Charlottetown, PE (PRWEB) March 24, 2011

ScreenScape Networks Inc. today announced the further expansion of it’s Sponsored Network Adoption Program. Under the program, qualified not-for-profit associations receive discounted Group Licenses from ScreenScape and may be eligible for free marketing support.

ScreenScape is a fast-growing community-based digital signage platform and key enabler of location-based media. The software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform helps business to speak more effectively to their on-site customers, to coordinate messaging at physical sites in their organization, and also through the ScreenScape Community to take their marketing message to audiences inside other venues.

Nancy Esson, President of Alpine Ontario, spoke to their reasons for joining the program. “Unifying our 44 member ski clubs was a key reason to apply for the program. ScreenScape gives us the ability to arrange messaging at all sites, while allowing each site the independence to promote their own events,” said Esson. “Our sponsors also benefit from having all of our sites networked. We can give them visibility that just wasn’t possible in the past.”

“ScreenScape not only helps to spread awareness of our upcoming events, such as Rogers Cup presented by National Bank, it also helps us promote tennis development across the country,” said Adam Bloom, Director of Marketing and Promotions, Tennis Canada. “Being able to consolidate messaging with our provincial associations at a moment’s notice speaks to the effectiveness of owning a ScreenScape group.”

“We believe that clubs and associations will benefit tremendously with ScreenScape as it provides a unique way to market, promote and connect with people across the country,” noted Danny Da Costa, Executive Director of Squash Canada. “This cost effective and simple to use program will provide clubs and associations a unique way to market the sport of Squash in Canada.”

Ontario Tennis Association (OTA) and Ontario Curling Association(OCA) are also new to ScreenScape’s Sponsored Network Adoption Program. Peter Malcomson, Marketing Manager for OTA stated, “We are always looking for better ways to connect with our members and ScreenScape has become a powerful communication vehicle for us. We invite tennis clubs to take a good look at what ScreenScape can do for their own club, and through Groups like OTA, for the tennis community at large.”

Kevin Dwyer, President and CEO welcomed the new associations and spoke on behalf of ScreenScape. “ScreenScape has removed the barriers that keep these organizations from taking advantage of place-based media. By joining the ScreenScape Community they will now be able to distribute rich visual content quickly and easily to audiences inside their member sites,” says Dwyer. “At the same time, by offering our support to these groups, we’re able to drive rapid adoption of the ScreenScape platform. Associations, in general, tend to be great candidates for a ScreenScape Group. Our community-based approach is the key to keeping costs down and helping organizations form their own content sharing network consisting of many individual members of ScreenScape.”
