Warranty on Trucks and Trolleys Extended to 10 years by The Workplace Depot

The Workplace Depot is delighted to announce that their range of Fetra trucks and trolleys will now be under warranty for 10 years; previously the warranty was for five years.

Many workplaces rely heavily on trucks and trolleys to move goods around and they can take a heavy pounding from regular, hefty usage. So it may come as a surprise that a company could guarantee the reliability of such an item for an extended period.

Ken Miller, Director of the Workplace Depot explained, “The reason we can give a 10 year warranty is because the equipment is now manufactured at highly efficient production facilities using some of the most advanced precision machinery. The Fetra range of trucks and trolleys are also powder-coated and undergo vigorous shot blasting pre-treatment.”

The new manufacturing process extends the product life as well as keeping the finish in tip-top condition for much longer.

There may be cheaper alternatives in the truck and trolley ranges provided by other suppliers, but buying an inferior item can be a false economy. This type of transport equipment has notoriously high levels of wear and tear, so lower quality equipment may only last a few years and therefore need to be replaced. This wastes both time and money versus the alternative of purchasing a reliable product that is guaranteed for 10 years.

Steve Miller, The Workplace Depot’s Managing Director commented on the quality of the Fetra products, “We are proud of the fact that if any of the Fetra products fail within 10 years, we will replace the whole truck or trolley, not just replace a part. We will of course do this free of charge. Our range is built to last and nothing says this more than a 10 year warranty.”

Electrical Counter Brush Up The Stainless Switch And Socket

Electrical Counter have recently found that there has been a substantial change in the market desire for different types of switches and sockets and one of the major changes has been in the supply of brushed steel socket and switch. Brushed steel finishes on electrical equipment has been a long time coming but since it did arrive there has been a very positive shift in the types of finish that are now requested by the customers. Electrical Counter is pleased to supply the Nexus range of brushed steel electrical fittings and these are now becoming a standard in the supply chain. The brushed steel effect is excellent is it is coated with a clear lacquer it does not mark with fingerprints like some of its counterparts and it is very easily cleaned when it does get marked.

Electrical Counter notes that this range of Nexus Brushed Stainless Steel electrical fittings is excellent when used in the kitchen. The kitchen can be the standard household kitchen in the family home or the commercial kitchen in the larger catering establishment, strangely it does not matter as they look equally as good in both and the safety features are such that they can work quite adequately in both. The BG Nexus Metal NBS70G Brushed Steel 45A Cooker Unit with Neon is a good brushed steel unit, which will supply power to the oven, and hob unit and will give a useful spare socket to work with. The neon shows when power is still on and will provide a timely reminder to turn off power when holidays or enforced absence occurs. The brushed steel effect will fit in with many of today’s kitchen units, it is particularly effective in the large commercial kitchen where stainless steel is found in abundance with most modern commercial kitchen units being made of stainless steel throughout as a matter of health and safety requirements. The usage of Nexus brushed stainless steel switches and sockets is a perfect match and also continues the health and safety theme.

Electrical Counter note that these electrical fittings all have a plastic seal between the switch or socket and the base box so that a watertight seal is made between the two parts. This stops any ingress of steam or water that may be present in the kitchen. The switches are invariably of the rocker type and these are very smooth and easy to operate, these smooth switches means that there are no snagging or ligature problems and that they can be operated by an irate chef with his hands full.

Electrical Counter is delighted with the full Nexus range as there is a switch and socket for every use required, from individual sockets to ganged units as well as specialist items like data points and telephone sockets. The light switches can be fitted on the wall in single or ganged units and in single or double pole models. Electrical Counter note that these electrical fittings can easily be changed in minutes without any repair work or alterations.

Electrical Counter Count On Keeping Out The British Weather

The Electrical Counter has a tremendous range of electrical switches and sockets, which they can supply, and this reflects the number of different applications and designs and materials used in manufacture. The Electrical Counter realise that these different types are required or desired by the commercial trade and the general public in completing their electrical circuits.

One of the areas that The Electrical Counter supply is the switch and or socket that is required to be completely weatherproof. To this purpose The Electrical Counter is pleased to be able to supply the Greenbrook PXC Weatherproof range of products. This range of electrical equipment has been especially designed and built to supply power to areas where the ravages of the British weather can reach without posing any danger to the running of the power system or to the people who may come in contact with the equipment. The range of sockets runs from the simple single sockets to twin sockets as well as time switched sockets.

The design of the Greenbrook PXC Weatherproof 105 DT – C PowerX time switched socket is one of the major items of the range of weatherproof equipment and this comes with an excellent 7 day electronic timer. The socket is a 16 amp socket housed in a clear polycarbonate case which has an excellent clip system to ensure that the lid holds shut in all weathers. The polycarbonate cover is resistant to high impact damage and seals successfully onto the body of the socket. This ensures that there is no chance of water entry into the electrical system. The Electrical Counter realise that these sockets have to deal with some difficult weather and are impressed with the design which has been made to deal with a permanent electrical installation and not just a temporary application. The cable entry is simple but effectively sealed.

The 7 day timer means that the Greenbrook PXC Weatherproof 105 DT – C PowerX time switched socket can be used to operate equipment remotely on a 365 day of the year operation without having to be altered or switched off at various times. There is however a simple manual override which can be used to turn power off or to operate the circuit on a continuous basis if the work level demands such a system. The socket is UV protected and will not lose its appearance due to Ultra Violet light from normal sunlight. All hinges are obviously rustproof.

The Electrical Counter can also supply the double socket version where one socket is covered by the 7 day timer and the other is a straight forward 13 amp socket. There are a great number of applications where the Greenbrook PXC Weatherproof range can be used and The Electrical Counter are keen to promote their usage as there are many places where these switches and sockets would do a much better and safer job than the system already being used. There are many production units where water spray or rain can get at the electrical equipment where the equipment is not adequately covered. These switches are very competitively priced and a look at The Electrical Counter website will give the viewer an excellent idea of what is available.

Ace Sheds Secure The Family Jewels

Ace Sheds have developed a great range of differing wooden buildings from the common or garden shed to the summerhouse range and finally to the full purpose built self design building. All these buildings have the quality and design characteristics, which make them superb for the job they have been built to do and at a price, which is excellent, and at a fraction of what any brick or breeze block building would cost. As the name suggests Ace Sheds started life as major shed builders and whilst they supply other buildings the shed market is still a major part of the business of garden sheds in Kent.

Ace Sheds tailor make each shed to satisfy a certain part of the market and one of the best sheds that is produced is the Reigate Security Shed which is one of the strongest sheds on the market. Shed crime has become a major problem and the losses from these buildings have been very high over the last few years. This has been mainly due to the fact that criminals have not had to bring along tools to break in and therefore cannot be charged with possession of such tools, also the standard shed is usually at the bottom of the garden and in the quietest place and the darkest place so that the burglar can break in without waking the family or the neighbours.

Ace Sheds have taken this on board and produced a superb shed that is ideal for this application the Reigate Security Shed. The frame is a 52 mm x 25 mm with extra diagonal supports for extra strength, the cladding is tongued and grooved boarding throughout and the floors and the roof are also made of 12 mm tongued and grooved boarding. The windows are small and very high in the building, the standard fitting comes with plastic safety glass but toughened glass is a recommended option. There is a substantial door, which is 750 mm wide and fitted with security hinges and a 3 lever mortice door lock. The security on this Ace Sheds building is excellent and to break into the building requires some excellent tools to be used and the sensible burglar is not going to be caught with those. Even with the right tools the Reigate Security Shed is going to resist the burglar totally or cause the person to take a long time in the operation, which will deter all but the hardened criminal.

Ace Sheds have not just made this shed to be a safe but primarily as an excellent garden storage area and the Reigate Security Shed has a good storage area. The Sheds can be sourced in sizes from 8 foot x 6 foot to a large 14 foot x 8 foot which will cover most needs. This shed is ideal for keeping garden mowers and hedge trimmers as well as the children’s cycles safely and securely. Ace Sheds also recommend using a burglar alarm in certain cases and a no window option is also available to reduce any chance of seeing inside the building.

New ALL BUT GLUTEN™ Baked Goods Launches During Celiac Awareness Month for Canadians on a Gluten-Free Diet

May is Celiac Awareness Month and, just days after first appearing on the shelves of major Canadian retailers, new All But Gluten™ baked goods are receiving rave reviews from consumers following a gluten-free diet. These great tasting products were created by the talented product development team at Weston Bakeries in collaboration with respected nutrition experts and are manufactured in a dedicated gluten-free facility. They meet Health Canada’s gluten-free regulations and are certified by the Canadian Celiac Association’s Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP). All But Gluten™, is one of the first brands to bear the GFCP mark, making it easier for consumers to identify safe gluten-free products.

All But Gluten™ products are also dairy-free and Kosher.

Safety, taste and nutrition are the three pillars of the All But Gluten™ brand. “The breads, focaccias, pizza shells and muffins are enriched with vitamins and minerals and are a source of fibre,” says Shelley Case, registered dietitian, international celiac disease expert and consulting spokesperson for All But Gluten™. “This is an important feature of All But Gluten™ because many gluten-free products on the market are not enriched and often lower in iron, B vitamins and fibre,” states Case.

Unlike most gluten-free baked goods, All But Gluten™ can be found in the fresh bakery section, not the frozen section of major Canadian retailers. Consumers following a gluten-free diet really miss delicious baked products and now they can stroll down the aisles that were previously off limits. The All But Gluten ™ brand invites consumers to ‘Rekindle your love of baked goods.’

The line includes Whole Grain Loaf, Cinnamon Raisin Loaf, Sliced White Loaf, Roasted Onion Focaccia, Rosemary Focaccia, Plain Pizza Shells, Carrot Raisin Morning Muffins, Mini Brownies and Coconut Macaroons.

Apple fixes iPhone security bug

Apple has managed to fix a bug in its passcode lock that had previously allowed users access to contacts, emails and photographs on iPads and iPhones. Hackers also found a way to make calls using FaceTime. By following a specific series of steps including making emergency calls, a person was able to get around the passcode facility.

The company has released a new update to iOS which includes a number of different improvements for iPhones, iPods and iPads. As well as the passcode lock fix other improvements and updates were included in the release. Users in Japan will experience sharper 3D images and improved speech synthesis.

The bug was introduced with the iOS 6.1 update and has been present since it was released at the end of January. The two month wait for a resolution has prompted some experts to question why Apple was not able to solve such a fundamental problem much sooner.

This update will be the last for several months before the release of the next version and the much anticipated iPhone 5S later in the year. iOS 7 is currently in the early stages of development and as the release of the new iPhone approaches, speculation as to the various new features of the operating system is sure to intensify.

Speaking on behalf of online smartphone and tablet case retailer The Snugg, Les Yates commented ,“This latest bug fix is great news for our consumers and will put a lot of user’s minds at rest, particularly because of the ease with which someone was able to bypass the passlock on the phone. Although it would have been preferable for many to have seen the update come sooner, the fact that Apple recognised the problem and solved it without letting the situation get out of hand is commendable.

“Bugs are an inevitable feature when creating any computer system and hopefully the discovery of this bug will help Apple to prevent similar problems occurring on their devices in the future. This will be very important with the release of a new iPhone later in the year; any problems associated with their new product could prove to be very damaging for their brand image.”

The Snugg create a wide range of quality covers and accessories for a variety of smartphones including the latest iPhone and iPads. Be sure to check out their slick iPad 3 cases at Amazon.com.

An Ace Up The Sleeve With The Crawley Summerhouse?

The snow keeps coming with 40 cm’s in places and the countryside looking like a Christmas postcard, it’s been the coldest March for 50 years, the wettest winter forever. The roads are clogged, the price of fuel is enormous and there are floods and famine. However Spring has actually arrived and nature has a way of redressing the balance of things quite quickly when it changes its mind and the gardening season will soon be upon us and the work will be staring back at us. It is now time to be ready for the Spring and summer and a great Ace Sheds Summerhouse installed in the garden is a wonderful way to start the growing season. If an Ace Sheds summerhouse is ordered shortly it will be here for the late Spring and Summer and it must be likely that we get some good weather soon.

Ace Sheds is pleased to promote one of their most useful ranges of summerhouse in the Crawley Summerhouse. This summerhouse is one of their workhorse summerhouses, which is sold at an excellent price but really does fit the bill of good value for money whilst doing the job excellently and also looking good at the same time. The Crawley summerhouse has been designed with simplicity in mind. It has an oblong shape with sizes from 8 feet x 6 feet to 12 feet by 10 feet and has an apex roof with the apex at the centre of the longest side. The front has a single door in the middle of the front with matching single windows either side of the door. The door is half glass to match the windows and the glass is plain not Georgian so that it gives a good contemporary design with excellent unrestricted views from inside the summerhouse. There is a single window in the side of the Crawley summerhouse that matches the windows on the front.

Ace Sheds are pleased with this design, which is an excellent and a very practical design. It fits particularly well in the modern house and contemporary garden where the clean lines fit very well. It will fit many garden designs ranging from the country cottage style to the latest modern design. As with all Ace Sheds summerhouses alterations can be made and it is quite possible to put double doors into the front is so desired to allow a great view and also to allow the summerhouse to be opened to a good summer’s day or an extra window to let in more light. The roof overhangs the door by one foot, which keeps the entrance dry and can allow the door to be opened on a poor weather day.

Ace Sheds note that the Crawley summerhouse is excellent value for money being one of their cheaper models but one, which still retains the quality and style expected of an Ace Sheds Summerhouse. It is possible for this summerhouse to be erected very quickly by two competent people and ready for action in a very short time. Give Ace Sheds a call or look at the website and see just what is possible.

New Research Shows Camu Camu Superfruit Improves Obesity Biomarkers

An. Acad. Bras.Cienc. confirmed that Camu-camu was able to improve the biochemical markers of obesity in rats.

Amazonian Camu-camu fruit (Myrciaria dubia) has attracted interest from food and cosmetics industries because of its rich content of vitamin C, flavonoids and anthocyanins. The goal of the study was to investigate the anti-obesity action of the ingestion of Camu-camu pulp in a rat model of diet-induced obesity – using Wistar rats with obesity induced by receiving diet ad libitum.

The rats were divided in two groups: an experimental group that ingested 25 mL/day of Camu-camu pulp (CCG) and a non-treated group (CG). After 12 weeks, the animals were tested. Blood, liver, heart, white adipose tissues were collected and weighed; biochemical and inflammatory profiles were examined as well.

Animals that received the pulp of Camu-camu had reduced fat in white adipose tissues and improved biochemical profiles of obesity including glucose, total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL-c and insulin blood levels. There was also an increase in beneficial HDL-c levels. The research suggests there may be potential use for Camu-camu in the control of obesity and as a functional food.

According to Matakana SuperFoods founder Dr Kevin Glucina the link to obesity came as a surprise to him. “We originally introduced Camu Camu to our product range because it is nature’s number one source of vitamin C complex. We had no idea it had potential to influence other biomarkers associated with obesity. This new research is based on a rodent model so now we need to see a follow-up human trial. Clinical research revealing the benefits of SuperFoods is accelerating as public interest grows about which foods provide the best naturally integrated nutrients for health.

There is a large movement away from formulated vitamin supplements and toward Superfoods and wholefoods in general. If people realise they can get their family’s daily vitamin C requirements by adding a natural superfruit powder like Camu Camu to their daily smoothie, why would they choose to buy a synthetic vitamin C tablet that has been produced in China from corn starch? Sure, they both have vitamin C but the wholefood Camu Camu also contains a complex of co-factors, vitamins, minerals and health-supporting phytonutrients that are put together by nature to give you much more bang for your buck. Not only has our digestive system evolved with wholefoods, there are also many complex mechanisms in play in wholefoods. Camu Camu has approximately 120 different phytochemicals; just how all those phytochemicals interact for our benefit is a hot topic in scientific research. It is the synergistic interaction of the different compounds in Superfoods which may be responsible for throwing up surprising benefits like those seen in this study into Camu Camu and obesity. These complex natural substances and interactions from wholefoods and Superfoods just can’t be duplicated by chemists at this time.Personally, the only vitamin supplement I take is vitamin D3 in winter. For the rest, in most cases, I think we can get far better quality from good quality wholefood and Superfoods.

The results of the Camu Camu study are very exciting and certainly support the high amount of interest in this new superfruit. The key thing I am taking away from this research is the influence that Camu Camu had on all the obesity biomarkers like blood-sugar levels and cholesterol. Sure, the rats lost weight, but more importantly, all the biomarkers became more healthy and that’s what’s important. I am always skeptical about claims made for one food as a cure-all for weight loss. In my opinion, even though the research looks promising, you can’t just rely on one magic food like Camu Camu to save you from the obesity epidemic. Lifestyle changes, the timing of diet and exercise are the most important factors when it comes to obesity; combine that with key super-nutrients and you are heading in the right direction.

We have done a lot of work on obesity and Superfoods at Matakana – we already have a new low calorie, high-nutrient Super Shake formula with Camu Camu and other key Superfoods like chia seeds, sacha inchi protein powder, red raspberry, goji and maqui berry freeze-dried powders incorporated into it. The Super Shake is naturally sweetened with low G.I pure coconut sugar, and the delicious flavor is enhanced with pure freeze-dried blueberry, banana juice and mango powders. The Super Shake can be taken as a once-per-day meal replacement to aid weight managment or as a post-workout recharge and is a great way for families to get a wide range of natural super-nutrients for improved general health. It is a viable safe alternative to synthetic vitamins for the whole family and all the ingredients are naturally gluten, dairy, preservative, coloring and GMO free.”

Camu Camu can be purchased from Matakana SuperFoods in bulk powder or capsule form and is also incorporated into the Matakana SuperFoods “Top 10 SuperFoods Super Shake”.

Electrical Counter Brushes Up On Its Stainless Steel Switches

Electrical Counter has put a lot of effort in getting the right sort of finish for all of its customers when supplying the electrical trade with a full set of switches. Brushed Stainless Steel is one of the best ranges of electrical switches face plates that are available on the market today. The advantage that this range of finishes has is that it will fit in very well both in the home and also in the office, shop, restaurant or work place, it is very versatile as well as being hard wearing and is very good at keeping its original appearance even with a heavy usage.

One of the best ranges of stainless steel switches is the Nexus flat plate screwless brushed steel switch, which has been designed with neatness in mind as well as simplicity of access for the skilled operator. The face plates of the Nexus flat plate screwless brushed steel switch are very smooth and as it says, it has no screw holes in it and no screw fittings but the face plate fits over the switch box with a clip on and clip off system which is easy to manage. The brushed stainless steel finish is such that it has a good lacquered finish to reduce any fingerprint marking and which also allows easy cleaning of the surface. Electrical Counter is delighted with this Nexus screwless brushed steel switch as it looks exceptionally good in any building in which the public have access and the range of switches covers the full range of applications that may be required. In the home there are the full range of single double and multiple 1 gang switches and also a range of two way switches. The specialist switches and sockets are all covered with a very impressive shaver socket and switch plus a fan isolator switch. The cooker switches and kitchen equipment switches are all covered so that there is a full range of matching switches as well as many other switches. There is also a full range of matching screwless flat plate sockets available to complete the installation.

There are a number of the Nexus brushed steel switches that are fitted with neon lights to indicate that power is flowing. This is a particularly useful addition as in these times of power savings and high energy costs this switch does indicate that an unwanted bathroom light has been left on or that power is still being supplied to the extractor fan. So much of the household equipment supplied today is virtually silent when in operation and this simple addition can save a great deal of extra cost.

Electrical Counter is impressed with the Nexus screwless brushed steel switch when it is installed in the business community as it looks in keeping with the modern office or public building. The screwless appearance stops the amateur electrician from accessing the switch whilst maintaining an easy access for the skilled electrician. These switches can be sourced from Electrical Counter at a third of their normal cost, which makes them an even more attractive proposition.

It may shock customers to find out that an alarming 67% of burglaries are attempted through a door, this fact should certainly reinforce the fact that home owners need to look at the security measures they are taking in their homes.

We all know about the value of burglar alarms and locks, but have you taken a minute to see if your door could withstand some force? Force 8’s range of composite doors is built using the most robust materials on the market.

If customers are looking for reassurances that they are buying the best quality doors then they need to ensure that the door that they are choosing has a PAS24 certificate, this shows that the door has been rigorously tested with everything from Battering Rams to Stanley knives.

Dennis Sumner, Managing Director of Force 8, wanted to reinforce how important having a solid door is;

?As a business we always pride ourselves on the quality of our products and whilst we encourage home owners to do all they can to save on certain areas in the home, you simply can’t afford to choose a sub-standard door.

Electrical Counter Gets Their Sockets Down To Ground Level

Electrical Counter supply a great range of electrical sockets and switches and there is something for everyone. One of the major problems is to keep up to date with all the options so that the finished customer can have the best system for their personal application. The ranges of sockets have changed markedly over the years as the range has extended from the most practical socket to one, which is also the most decorative. One of the areas where the socket usage could often be used more effectively is the floor electrical socket as this socket can be placed far closer to the intended usage than any wall mounted socket.

Electrical Counter is pleased to promote the Hamilton Range of Sheer Floor Electrical Sockets, which comes in a full range of modern metallic finishes. The floor socket has been around for some time but the latest designs are certainly more effective and do look good. The socket is a typical electrical socket fitted into a metal face plate, which is screwed onto a socket box, which has been sunk into the floor. The socket will accept a typical 13 amp plug but when it is not in operation there is a hinged metal cover, which is spring mounted for automatic closure over the socket as soon as the plug is removed. The final socket with lid is then virtually in line with the floor with no noticeable protrusion. The Hamilton Range of Sheer Floor Electrical Sockets are very robust and will accept people walking on them but for obvious reasons the siting of these sockets is usually in an area where they are not in a typical walkway. The advantages of these sockets are many but the typical one is that they can be put in areas close to where they will be used, for example by a table lamp or near to a television station or a radio and I Pod docking station. These sockets will also be virtually unseen when out of operation, as they are not noticed in the floor but often stand out when wall mounted. Electrical Counter is delighted with the range of sockets as they are available as a single or double socket for 13 amp plugs and also they are available in single and double 2 amp sockets for a table lamp circuits and also as a single television aerial socket.

The Hamilton Range of Sheer Floor Electrical Sockets provides Electrical Counter with a range of sockets in 6 different finishes so that it gives the customer a number of design options. There are 3 brass finishes in antique, polished and satin as well as polished chrome, a satin nickel and a satin stainless steel finish. This provides an excellent choice for the customer and will enable them to find a good finish, which will fit in with the floor covering of the room concerned.

Electrical Counter is pleased to note that the price of the Hamilton Range of Sheer Floor Electrical Sockets has reduced significantly and the full range of sockets is available now at half the list price.

Ace Sheds Design The Thanet Summerhouse With A Hint Of The Georgian Look

Ace Sheds build all sorts of wooden structures from garden sheds to exotic summerhouses in all different sizes and variations. They supply directly from their manufacturing facilities to the customers in a “Flat pack” delivery for erection by the customer or Ace Sheds can arrange the erection if required. The result of this type of sales is that Ace Sheds can supply these buildings to the customer at an excellent price for the amount of work that goes into the design and construction of these buildings, This means that there is something for everyone when it comes to a good summerhouse at a price that is affordable by the majority of home owners. They also provide luxury summerhouses for the top end of the market.

Ace Sheds is pleased to promote their Thanet range of summerhouses which is a good low cost summerhouse with a fairly standard rectangular building with a standard apex roof with the centre of the apex in the middle of the long side of the summerhouse. The building can be bought in many different sizes and this enables the user to get just right size for the garden concerned. Ace Sheds have designed this building with a touch of the Georgian architecture in it by putting all the windows and doors in Georgian small paned windows. This gives the building a touch of character and looks very good among the trees and flowers of a standard garden.

As in all Ace Sheds ranges of summerhouses the Thanet design can be tailored to suit each individual customer and this design particularly suits some of Ace Sheds more interesting extras. The Thanet summerhouse will stand very well on its own and looks good with no additional extras but there are some extras that can change the look significantly in the right location. Ace Sheds have been producing red cedar tiles for the installation on both sheds and summerhouses for some time now and these do look excellent when fully installed on the Thanet summerhouse roof. These tiles have a natural protection within them to keep out the worst of the winter ravages but they can also be pressure treated to give them virtual indestructibility from rain and damp. The cedar tiled roof on the Thanet summerhouse turns this building into an extremely fashionable building and will look as if it has cost a lot more than the bill charged.

Ace Sheds note that the Thanet summerhouse has two large double doors for front entry and in the Georgian design they look particularly attractive, when these are open they provide a lovely atmosphere inside the summerhouse and make it a lovely place to sit and while away some time on a summer’s day even when the weather is mixed. There are matching Georgian windows on either side of the door to balance the design and another lovely large window in one side wall. This makes the unit very light and airy and is one of the best-selling designs within the Ace Sheds portfolio.

Celerant Technology’s Retail Management Software Brings out the Big Guns

Celerant Technology Corp has been a premium retail software provider for over 13 years, and has served the firearms industry for the past seven. Celerant was one of the first software companies to provide ATF compliant Electronic Acquisition & Disposition books to help gun retailers access their sales history faster and keep more accurate records.

“The firearms industry is heavily regulated and requires retail management software that enables efficiency and compliance,” said Ian Goldman, President and CEO of Celerant Technology. “In order to allow firearm dealers to run their businesses from one complete system, Command Retail has integrated Electronic A&D books to eliminate redundancy and error, as well as customized reporting that make it easy to provide the right data for the ATF’s Industry Operations Investigators.”

Celerant Technology’s latest version of its retail software, Command Retail v6.4, has added new features to expedite daily procedures for FFLs (Federal Firearms Licenses). At the point of sale, serial numbers are automatically incremented and the firearm is added to the integrated Electronic A&D book upon purchase, eliminating the manual process of the physical bound book. Driver’s license scanning verifies a customer’s age and ensures that the sale of restricted items is compliant with ATF regulations, as well as populates the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) module with customer demographics and purchase history. To improve customer-facing services and reduce wait times at the register when making a purchase, Celerant also offers a Mobile POS that runs Command Retail’s redesigned, user-friendly POS screen.

“We have been using Celerant’s retail management system for our firearms company since 2008. The Point of Sale in Celerant has been a tremendous help in quickly processing our customer while populating the disposition of the firearm instantly into the [Electronic] A&D book,” said Celerant client Jeff Poet, owner of Jay’s Sporting Goods. “All the data is consistent across our two store locations and integrated E-Commerce site, making it a great tool for finding detailed information quickly.”

Celerant’s new features in the recently released version of Command Retail is a step in the right direction, but talks of future versions will be the total package for the firearms industry. During the 2013 Shooting Hunting Outdoor Tradeshow (SHOT Show), Celerant met with the board members of the ATF to discuss improving the retail software. Celerant developers are now working on several advancements, including a Form 4473 that auto-populates customer demographics from Command Retail’s CRM. Range scheduling is also anticipated.

Nexus Metal Sockets Provide a Good Base For The Electrical Counter

The Nexus range of electrical sockets manufactured by B G (British General) provides The Electrical Counter with a superb range to supply to the electrical industry. The range of electrical sockets has changed remarkably over the past few years and the introduction of the metal faced sockets has given a completely new outlook to all the electrical fitments and these allow the interior designer a vastly different set of parameters with which to work.

The Electrical Counter is able to supply the full range of metal faced sockets with a complete range of different faceplate materials and finishes. The Nexus electrical socket can be either a single or double ganged socket, which can be supplied with or without a switch. The Nexus electrical sockets are very neat in their design and the metal faces are of a very plain but sleek design. The sockets have a plastic gasket around the box to restrict the entry of any dampness but this is hidden from view so that it does not take anything from the overall appearance of the Nexus electrical socket. The metal faces of the Nexus Sockets are coated with a lacquer, which limits the fingerprint marks, which appear on the sockets from continual usage. These Nexus electrical sockets are becoming very popular as the metallic finish gives a completely different look to the finished electrical socket.

The different types of electrical socket metallic finishes are the item that impresses The Electrical Counter most of all. The different metal face plates that are available are Brushed Steel, Polished Chrome, Black Nickel, Matt Black, Polished Brass, Pearl Nickel, Antique Brass and Cream. This is a most impressive range of different materials and finishes and these really do look good in suit, the face plates are extremely sleek and will grace any building modern or elderly. Brushed steel and polished chrome have been around for some time but they still look excellent and fit very well in a modern house with the clean lines. Black Nickel is a beautiful finish that has been very popular over the past years and this fits in exceptionally well with modern house designs. Brass finishes whether polished or antique fit with a whole range of house décor and designs and will often prove very successful in the older house fitted with antique furniture. The Black and Cream switches are quite novel and give a totally different view and if installed into a house with the latest modern trends can really add to the décor.

The Pearl Nickel is rather a special item and has to be ordered separately but it is one design, which is particularly good at raising the profile of the installation, and there really is very little on the market elsewhere to compare with its appearance. The Electrical Counter is delighted with the total range of switches and sockets and this group of finishes is bound to become more popular as time progresses. A quick look at The Electrical Counter web site will reveal just what is available and any queries can be addressed by email or phone. This is certainly a range to watch.

No Splash Or Relax With A New Desk And Games Table

Splash and Relax are rarely caught out with their name but there will be very little time to splash or relax with the BCE Riley 6 ft pool, table tennis and desk all built in one package. Splash and Relax now supply a vast range of Games tables be they for multiple usage with a large number of games or a single usage like pool, snooker, table football or air hockey. Whatever the requirements Splash and Relax is likely to have the full answer in their superb portfolio. The Olympics gave the British sporting public quite a lift and there is a definite mood to keep that lift going over the next year. The problem with the UK is that the weather is not that great for sporting activity for much of the year as outside activity is limited to wet or snowy Saturdays and Sundays. To counteract this, the games tables can be excellent at resolving this problem.

Splash and Relax are pleased to promote the BCE Riley range of games tables, Riley’s for many years was the face of snooker and pool in the UK but faded as the sports lost a little of their lustre as professional sports. BCE games tables were a small trading company that also lost its way. By 2002 both companies had seen bad times but were bought or merged with RLE a company owned by Stuart Lacey and fortunes were reborn. By 2006 the business was booming supported by the efforts of Ronnie O Sullivan and Jimmy White and it has progressed from then until today.

One of the most interesting products that Splash and Relax supply is the BCE Riley 6 foot Pool / Table Tennis Table / Desk. This is provided in a modern shiny white finish and to the outside world serves as a desk in a modern office at home or in the dining room or play room. The unit has a flat 6 foot long by approximately 4 foot wide top which when packed away has a white top which can be used as a desk or as a dining table. The table, however, can then be converted by removing the top and a fine pool table is exposed, there are a full set of balls and cues and all accessories are available from Splash and Relax. Pool is an excellent game for all the family and whilst not the most energetic does provide a good deal of walking exercise on a bad day. Pool tables do need to be level and these BCE Riley Games Tables are fitted with adjusters on each table leg to enable the table to be levelled. Extra exercise and a more energetic sport can be played by fitting the table tennis top and net on top of the snooker table to convert the table ready for a good game of table tennis.

Splash and Relax – http://www.splashandrelax.co.uk – are delighted with the BCE Riley 6 foot Pool / Table Tennis Table / Desk as it gives the user the opportunity to play active games on a table which can be returned to a useful household application when the games are finished.
