Blenheim Homes a 2013 Top-Ten Performer

Newark, DE (PRWEB) July 20, 2014

Blenheim Homes, one of the Delaware Valley’s premier homebuilders, rode a resurgent housing market to a solid top-ten position in one of the Nation’s most active metropolitan markets, according to official rankings published in June’s BUILDER magazine. Blenheim moved up the ranks from #9 in 2012 to secure the #7 spot in 2013, and is the largest privately held builder in the top ten. The company achieved a strong 70% increase in total number of closings for 2013 vs. 2012, enabling the builder to capture a greater market share. The builder’s ability to design and develop quality communities that satisfy customers’ desires for both location and affordability helped fuel Blenheim’s exceptional growth even while competing for new home sales with some of the largest publicly traded companies in the Philadelphia region.

Strong Demand plus a Clear Advantage

Brittany Johnson, Sales Manager at Blenheim community The Village of Bayberry, added “Sales pace and volume have increased considerably over the past year, as increased consumer confidence, favorable lending conditions, and economic growth have led to higher demand for new homes in the Philadelphia region across multiple buyer segments. The Village of Bayberry has a clear advantage in meeting this demand, as the diversity of our product line allows us to reach most of the buyer groups in our market.”

Global Man-Portable Military Electronics Market 2013 – 2023: Worldwide Industry Share, Investment Trends, Growth, Size, Strategy And Forecast Research Report 2013


Albany, NY (PRWEB) November 04, 2013

The Global Man-Portable Military Electronics Market 2013 – 2023

This report is the result of SDI’s extensive market and company research covering the global man-portable military electronics industry. It provides detailed analysis of both historic and forecast global industry values, factors influencing demand, the challenges faced by industry participants, analysis of the leading companies in the industry, and key news.

Introduction and Landscape

Why was the report written?

The Global Man-Portable Military Electronics Market 2013-2023 offers the reader detailed analysis of the global man-portable military electronics market over the next ten years, alongside potential market opportunities to enter the industry, using detailed market size forecasts.

To check out the complete table of contents, visit: http://www.marketresearchreports.biz/analysis-details/the-global-man-portable-military-electronics-market-2013-2023.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?

Militaries around the world are focusing on soldier modernization programs and this development has directly influenced growth in the man-portable electronics category. Soldier modernization programs comprise advanced man-portable devices for communication, force protection, and surveillance and reconnaissance operations. The recent successful experiences with the soldier modernization kits in Afghanistan and Iraq, has increased trust in man-portable devices amongst soldiers, especially during contemporary and counterinsurgency operations. In addition, the miniaturization of man-portable devices as part of soldier modernization kits has had a positive influence on category growth. Earlier, a number of communication, ISTAR and force protection devices such as tactical networking radios, sensors, anti-tank missile systems, GPRS systems, navigation and enemy location device, and UAVs were not portable and mounted to vehicles. The portability of these devices as part of the soldier gear has led to a number of new possibilities for the soldiers in the land-based combat operations. The French, FELIN program is considered by some to have the most technologically advanced man-portable devices and a number of other large militaries, such as the US, the UK and Russia are also allocating their military budgets to update their indigenous soldier modernization programs. These developments will have a long term positive impact on the category expenditure.

What makes this report unique and essential to read?

The Global Man-Portable Military Electronics Market 2013-2023 provides detailed analysis of the current industry size and growth expectations from 2013 to 2023, including highlights of key growth stimulators. It also benchmarks the industry against key global markets and provides detailed understanding of emerging opportunities in specific areas.

SpeedRFP Use Grows 70 Percent in 2013, With Nearly 50,000 Unique Event RFPs Submitted During the Year

Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) January 14, 2014

Elite Meetings International (EMI) announced its cloud-based eRFP technology product, SpeedRFP, surpassed projections for the second straight year in both volume of unique event submissions and in buyer membership growth. As hotels and resorts around the world increasingly adopted SpeedRFP as their websites meetings, weddings, and special events eRFP systems, the number of unique RFPs catapulted from 29,196 in 2012 to 49,466 in 2013. These numbers reflect more 350 percent growth since 2011. SpeedRFPs buyer membership, now over 90,000, is responsible for more than $ 5 billion in annual spend.

Kelly Foy, chief executive officer of EMI, said, Growth in 2013 surpassed even our own lofty expectations, and we dont see any signs of a slowdown. Our objective of creating an industry standard for eRFP forms is becoming a reality.

Along with growth from SpeedRFP technology adoption, the SpeedRFP Network, which launched during IMEX America last October, contributed to the numbers. The SpeedRFP Network profiles more than 10,000 hotels and resorts worldwide and allows planners to easily submit their SpeedRFPs from a single portal.

Although the SpeedRFP Network currently features 10,000 hotels, it won’t remain there for long, according to Foy. “These initial hotels represent the first in a multiphase effort focused on properties around the world that generate the majority of the world’s group business. The heavy hitters, if you will. Our research shows that roughly 30,000 hotels currently fit this profile, and it is our goal to include all of them in 2014,” Foy said.

SpeedRFP buyer members are different from users of other networks in that the vast majority of users are administrative assistants, executive assistants, or office managers. They are all influencers or decision makers for their entities. They plan meetings, but their titles dont necessarily reflect that. These adjunct meeting planners are able to take advantage of SpeedRFPs intuitive forms and eRFP management system to submit group requests for proposals to hotels and resorts around the globe without having to learn any complicated systems.

In addition to powering EMIs two hotel network portals, EliteMeetings.com and SpeedRFP.com, SpeedRFP technology powers some of the most well-known chains, brands such as ConnectPlus at Hilton Worldwide, MGM Resorts International, Preferred Hotel Group, Dolce Hotels & Resorts, Noble House Hotels & Resorts, and Destination Hotels & Resorts, as well as the worlds top independent hotels and resorts such as Atlantis, Paradise Island; The Broadmoor; Bacara Resort & Spa; Wynn Las Vegas and Encore; plus, and more than 300 others.

Modality Systems Design and Deploy Microsoft Lync 2013 Solution for Crystal Cruises to Underpin Its International Operations Across Land and Sea


Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 27, 2013

Created in 1988 with a vision to set a completely new standard in luxury travel and world exploration, Crystal Cruises consistently ranks among the top luxury properties in the world and has an unprecedented number of accolades and awards.

With an ongoing commitment to improving the value and services to guests, Crystal Cruises wanted to explore ideas for reducing costs and providing a collaborative environment for the entire business to utilize now and into the future.

Bjorn Andersson, Manager, Shipboard & Network Operations at Crystal Cruises commented, It is part of our mission to constantly seek improvement and innovation of our services as well as strive for reduction of our costs in order to maintain reasonable fares, thereby enhancing the value of our service to customers.

Crystal Cruises identified Microsoft Lync 2013 as the solution and engaged with Modality Systems to design, deploy and roll out the system across the organization, including its luxury cruise ships, making it the first cruise line to deploy Microsoft Lync 2013 and further enhancing the innovative reputation of the business.

The rich collaboration features of Microsoft Lync 2013 were a key factor in the decision, providing all users with a comprehensive suite of communication possibilities encompassing audio, video, messaging, data collaboration and ubiquitous presence available to them from wherever they are working.

The conferencing capabilities of Microsoft Lync 2013 also make it an ideal replacement to the teleconferencing services used by Crystal Cruises, allowing team members to initiate ad-hoc or scheduled meetings with other team members across the organization, regardless of their location. It also provides the business with a cost effective method of keeping other federated suppliers and key affiliates informed with regular business and training updates as well as running management meetings across the wider group.

On-board the ships, crew members can enjoy the same features and benefits of Lync as their shore based colleagues, while instant messaging has become the preferred method for ship-to-shore and ship-to-ship communications which utilize satellite internet connections. Instant messaging requires a minimal amount of bandwidth but provides a reliable means of getting messages to the right person at the right time.

The introduction of Microsoft Lync 2013 has enabled Crystal Cruises to make significant cost savings. Crystal Cruises Lync deployment has removed the reliance on expensive teleconferencing services saving roughly $ 11k since 2012 and further reduced the need for travel.

Features such as presence and instant messaging have had a massive impact on efficiency, giving team members the visibility of knowing when and who is currently available and facilitating timely communications which result in quicker decisions and reducing delays.

Bjorn Andersson, Manager, Shipboard & Network Operations at Crystal Cruises concludes, Our signature commitment to service and innovation continues to define the luxury travel experience, and our dedication to excellence has earned us unprecedented recognition as the world best in our field. The technology we deploy performs a significant role in our activities, acting as an invisible facilitator of vital communications and interactions between staff, suppliers and our customers.

The support we received from the Modality team was incredible. They demonstrated a great knowledge and understanding of Lync and what was required for our situation. They designed a solution which they rolled out across the business, including our cruise ships on the other side of the world, without any fuss or the need to visit site in the case of the global locations and ships. They provided a service on a par to the service we offer our customers and guests, taking the stress out of what could have been a challenging project. Bjorn Andersson, Manager, Shipboard & Network Operations at Crystal Cruise.

Microsoft Lync 2013 provides Crystal Cruises with a foundation for future possibilities. The extensibility capabilities of Lync are endless and enable Crystal Cruises to consider new and innovative ways of embedding rich communication and collaboration features enabling new ways of working or supporting new guest services.

Intelity Announces ICE Sapphire, New Partnerships Drove 2013 Success

ORLANDO, Fla. (PRWEB) December 19, 2013

Leading hospitality technology firm Intelity is announcing one of its most successful years to date since it was founded in 2007. Four new global hotel brand engagements, new partners in Latin America, Africa and China and the introduction of the newest version of its trademark ICE platform contributed to the companys expansion and financial success throughout the year.

Several new hotels embraced Intelity’s ICE in-room and mobile guest service software as a means of connecting with more digitally savvy travelers, who carry an average of three devices while away from home.

Intelity designed an industry first: a customized brand-level mobile technology platform for Conrad Hotels & Resorts that integrated with the loyalty program, enabling guests to log in from personal mobile devices with their loyalty program identification information to make room reservations, access personalized information about their stay, place requests and order hotel services.

The Conrad Concierge mobile platform also made Conrad Hotels the first brand to offer express check-in and pre-arrival requests to guests via their personal mobile devices across an entire hotel brand. Social sharing, express check-out, and post-stay communication capabilities were also key features of this platform.

Internally, Intelity generated a 30-percent staff increase and the opening of four new office locations in New York, Chicago, Orlando and London to enhance sales, operations, and support available in these regions. The additional locations come as the company seeks to expand its global presence, particularly in the EMEA market.

The coming year will bring installations of Intelitys newest technology, ICE Sapphire. Released in November, ICE Sapphire introduced several new features:

Thailand Declared Best Golf Destination at the Safari India National Tourism Awards 2013


(PRWEB) October 26, 2013

The Safari India Magazine is an influential regional tourism publication that is widely circulated in Asia. The magazine provides coverage on a number of tourism related topics, including hotels, travel agents, wildlife and the environment. In doing so, the magazine is regarded as a crucial source of information, and its editors aim to deliver a consistently high standard of journalism. Consequently, receiving the Best Golf Destination award is a tremendous achievement for Thailand.

Thailand has become an attractive destination for golfers from across the globe. This is not surprising, as there are now a number of exceptional golf courses in Thailand and many of them enjoy beautiful surroundings. With the support of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), the country has done much to raise its profile as a world-class golf destination, including the appointment of the Indian professional golfer, Gaganjeet Bhullar, to be their golf brand ambassador.

Upon collecting the award, the Director of TATs New Delhi office, Mrs Runjuan Tongrut, thanked the editors and management of Safari India Magazine. She stated that the golf award is recognition of Thailands efforts to promote this increasingly popular sport, together with being an official endorsement of Thailands modern golf facilities, internationally-designed championship courses, and outstanding hospitality.

Although golf has enjoyed a recent rise in popularity in Asia, the sport is by no means new to Thailand. In fact, golf has been played in Thailand for approximately 100 years, and there are reports of matches being played at the Royal Bangkok Sports Club as early as 1905. Thailands first 18-hole course was built at Royal Hua Hin in 1924, and this course continues to play a prominent role in the sport to this day. Indeed, only earlier this year, the Hua Hin and Cha-am Golf Festival was opened at the Royal Hua Hin Golf Course, and this event did much to raise Thailands profile as a key destination for golf tourism. The festival showcased nine of Thailands exceptional golf courses, and participants enjoyed great value for money due to the specially arranged green fee of just 999 Baht per person. Naturally, it is the innovation displayed in events of this type that has earned Thailand its recognition from the Safari India Magazine.

Krabi Riviera Co Ltd is delighted to raise awareness of Thailands achievement in the Safari India Tourism Awards due to its own significant role in Krabis tourism industry. The company manages an outstanding portfolio of luxury holiday villas in the Ao Nang area.

All Krabi Rivieras villas enjoy an excellent specification, with designer kitchens, sumptuous bathrooms and private swimming pools.

Thailands status as a world-class destination for golf tourism is well deserved, and the hard work and skilful marketing that made this a reality is certainly worthy of Safari India Magazines special recognition.
