Guests get reliable glance-and-go travel information without apps

“Guest love the travel convenience FlyteBoard provides. They trust their travel plans while they are on property because of the FlyteBoard’s familiar arrival and departure display,” said Tony Schatz, general manager of Hyatt Place Flushing/LaGuardia Airport Hotel. “Our guests can easily see real-time airline flight information for our three airports without using a third-party app. Plus, the three-airport capability is valuable since most of our guests travel by air.” Flyte Systems is the only full service flight information display solution that provides real-time departure information.

Schatz noted that the property’s parent company recommended the FlyteBoard implementation for his property. “Our biggest demand generator is LaGuardia Airport for our business travelers. When group meeting planners do site visits they are impressed we provide this service.”

With its opening on May 29, 2014, the property became the first Hyatt-branded hotel in Queens, New York. “Hyatt Place Flushing/LaGuardia Airport is centrally located in the heart of one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in New York City, and we’re looking forward to creating a positive experience for each and every guest that walks through our doors,” said Schatz.

Bulletin Board Trimmers: Encourage Kids for More Activity

Teaching a child with the means of different fun activity reflects the creativity of the teacher. If teacher is dedicated to take out innovative ideas for their students, then each classroom becomes the fun place for the student. In order to make classroom a place for enjoyment, all teachers encourage students to make some paper crafts or origami works. And these items, in turn, can be used for the classroom decoration. This way, one of the most appealing items for classroom decoration is the bulletin board. These bulletin boards are one of the teacher’s best choices to make student engaged in classroom activity. If teachers are motivated to engage the child in craft activity, then they should teach their student to explore the idea of bulletin board trimmers. And these trimmers are nothing but the edges of the bulletin boards. These bulletin board trimmers are decorated in order to enhance the visual appeal of the board. This kind of trimmer is set in one surface of the bulletin board. If suitable color and texture is chosen for this trimmer, then the entire appeal of the bill board changes. This kind of bulletin board has huge contribution in simple letters, solid colors and numbers. These trimmers are meant for enhancing the aesthetic aspect of the board.

You can find different classroom supplies, where trimmers are found in sets. And these kinds of items are found at reasonable rate, if they are bought in bulk. Many online stores are there to proffer better quality of classroom supplies and that too within our price range. In case of trimmers for bulletin board, we can see variety in color and design. Many trimmers are also found in simple design. This particular education supply attracts child a lot. Thus, making it more appealing gives better result in imparting knowledge to the student.

So, we really need to be conscious about choosing any kind of tool to impart knowledge to the child. If we choose wrong item for any activity, then that might minimize the enthusiasm of the kid. So, it is very important to understand the utility of any education supply and then implement it wisely for any kind of school activity. This kind of engagement develops psychomotor skill of the kid. And thus, choosing supply for your kid should direct the activity of the class. One more thing that one should consider before buying any item for the kid is the safety of the product. If any item used in classroom activity is toxic in nature, then this item should immediately be discarded.

Jag Jenny shares knowledge on classroom supplies and bulletin board trimmers and that make you able to find the best school supplies.

Gamification finally recognised by tech analysts

London, England (PRWEB UK) 22 May 2013

At the Ovum Industries Conference 2013 last week, DigitalMR – an online market research specialist – was announced as the winner of the ‘On The Radar’ award for ‘Best Implementation of Enterprise Gamification’ through the use of its ‘eCommunities’ platform.

Gamification is ‘the use of game thinking and game mechanics (such as digital badges, points, achievements) in a non-game context in order to engage users and solve problems.’

eCommunities uses gamification to enhance its private online communities experience for improved online market research and co-creation.

Carter Lusher -Research Fellow & Ovum’s Chief Analyst for gamification- who also presented this award had this to say about eCommunities is: ‘an excellent example of how gamification can deliver direct business value. e.g. reduced member attrition from 30% to 3-5% and thus reduced costs. The project has provided valuable business insights into the relative importance of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. Although an external customer-facing scenario, there are useful insights to be gained for internal applications as well.’

Another reason for winning this award was that Ovum was immensely impressed with the fact that the eCommunities platform is completely built in-house. Pictured on the right is Christos Aniftos – Digital Systems Director and creator of the eCommunities platform said ‘this is a great honour and a confirmation that we are on the right track with our software platforms; the fact that DigitalMR is an early-stage company makes the win of this award even more significant for us’.

Accepting this award on behalf of DigitalMR was online Research Director Ivana Mujic who said: ‘eCommunities has been a very helpful platform in our efforts to extract consumer insights for our clients.’

Other winners of the night included Pearson – the parent company of The Financial Times and Penguin – and Desire2learn.
