Celerant Chosen To Implement Complete Software Solution For The U.S. Naval Fleet

Celerant Technology, a leader in the retail software industry, was recently selected by the Department of the U.S. Navy as the new software provider for their Ships Store Program. After extensive research and an elaborate review process, the US Navy has chosen Celerant to provide an “end to end” enterprise software solution that could be used on over 150 naval ships.

“We are pleased to have been chosen by the US Navy and look forward to developing this partnership and providing the Navy with our advanced retail software,” stated Ian Goldman, Celerant President and CEO. “Our team of experienced software developers, implementation specialists, and support technicians are well equipped and prepared to make the transition of each ship store as smooth as possible, regardless of a ship’s location. With our software, Command Retail, the naval stores will gain similar efficiencies of operation of workload reduction, corporate oversight and reduced training costs, equivalent to stores existing in traditional brick and mortar locations.”

Command Retail manages all areas of a retail business, f r o m the point of sale on the front end, to inventory management, warehouse, distribution, allocation, advanced reporting on the back end, and integrated e-commerce. The Celerant system is written in Java and performs in real time, connecting all retail channels seamlessly with a centralized database. If by chance internet connectivity is lost, such as when a navy ship is at sea, transactions at the store are not interrupted and the Celerant system allows all data to be imported as soon as the connection is restored.

“With the selection of this new retail software provider for the U.S. Navy’s ships stores, the Navy will have taken a step in moving f r o m a legacy environment to a more efficient corporate enterprise / distance support process. We expect significant efficiencies such as the reduction of training costs and inventory carrying costs.” stated Charles Vaughan, Vice President, Navy Exchange Service Command Afloat Operations / Ships Store Program. “Implementing Command Retail will provide our fleet with a higher level of efficiency and the capability to make cost-effective operational decisions that weren’t as possible before.”

The Department of the Navy has approximately 155 Ship Stores on commissioned ships, carrying basic necessities, as well as a limited selection of semi-luxury items such as electronics and watches.

Optimalon Software Has Released Version 3.0 Of Its Linear Programming Solver Giplas32

Optimalon Software released a new version 3.0 of Gipals32. This version provides even more power then ever before by supporting the capacities of modern high performance processors (CPUs).

More and more companies try to reduce costs and optimize their operations in the current economic times. The most popular mathematical method to reduce operational cost with limited resources is the linear programming (LP). It has been heavily used in such areas as company management, logistic, planning and production. It doesn’t matter how big or small a company is, if it needs to optimize any part of its business the linear programming can help, but there is a catch. LP cannot be used directly; it usually works as a part of the company’s systems, such as logistic, scheduling or planning applications. There are thousands of custom-built software systems that use LP as the optimization engine.

The developers of these systems only convert the particular custom problem into general LP form and call the LP solver. After the LP problem is solved the system gets back the results and transform them into custom solution. Such architecture allows using the same LP optimization engine for different custom-built systems and therefore the developers can focus on the business logic, without getting involved into the complicated LP implementation.

Optimalon Software (http://www.optimalon.com) provides the linear programming optimization engine Gipals32.dll. It’s powerful, yet affordable solution for many software companies and individual developers. Gipals32 can easily find a solution or state a solution doesn’t exist for any kind of linear programs with an unlimited number of variables and constraints.

Marketing director Denis Smirnov:
“Implementation the support of SSE2 and multi-core CPUs has improved Gipals32’s performance dramatically. In some cases we got the calculation speed increased by 5 (five) times. The numeric stability of the calculation has been improved for the new version as well. Gipals32 can now solve poorly defined LP problems that didn’t yield any solutions before.”

More information about the Gipals32, its features and performance can be found at http://www.optimalon.com/product_gipals32.htm

The Photobook Company Is A New Website Launched By Leading London Digital Agency Cyber-Duck

The website allows users across the UK to create personalised albums which they design themselves.

thephotobookcompany

By downloading the exclusive state-of-the-art photobook design software from The Photobook Company website completely free of charge, users can design their own album or choose from various pre-designate page templates which they can customise. The software enables users to upload their high-quality digital photographs from their computer into the album.

The software has an impressive array of tools to make it easier than ever for users to design their own wedding albums, by editing the background colours, images or captions with stunning scrapbook effects. Additionally, users can change the transparency of photographs (for faded backgrounds or blending photographs), resize photographs, layer images and easily alter the colours of the photographs (by adding classic sepia or black & white effects). The software is easy to use, meaning anybody can design their own photobook album in minutes.

There are tutorials and videos on The Photobook Company’s website to guide users through the process from basic editing such as simply resizing a photo to more advanced editing processes such as adding effects to photographs.

The user is given the choice between having a landscape or portrait option with the photobook and two different cover options; leather embossed or photographic picture. The leather embossed cover option looks timeless and classy, and the photographic cover makes the custom album look contemporary and luxurious.

Once the user is happy with their album or photobook they can then order it online via The Photobook Company’s website. The Photobook Company then handmake and professionally print the photobook album based on the custom design. The albums are printed on matt photographic paper which covers the entire double page spread (known as flush mounted) for a better quality and also enabling customers to have full panoramic images from edge to edge of the album.

All books / albums produced by the Photobook Company are handmade by their skilled and experienced bookbinders. The quality of the books and printing is manually checked and approved before they are sent out to ensure that customers receive a superior quality album that they will cherish forever. This includes colour correction and sharpening our customers images individually so that the image quality is optimised throughout the photobook. Many of The Photobook Company’s competitors simply do not show this level of dedication to quality.

The website also makes it incredibly easy to order duplicate albums for relatives, friends and family including smaller versions of the main photobook album, as well as offering the opportunity to order ‘thank you’ cards based on the photobook design for guests.

To find out more about The Photobook Company and to test the unique photobook designing software for free please visit http://www.thephotobookcompany.co.uk. Also on the website watch preview videos to learn more about the many exciting features available in the photobook software.
