Marlton-based eMaint Doubles Revenue and Triples Staff since 2010

During a time when other companies are laying off and retrenching, South Jersey based eMaint Enterprises, a technology leader in delivering cloud based CMMS software and services, today announced significant revenue and staff growth over the past three years.

Revenues at eMaint grew 45 percent in 2012 over previous year, and a cumulative 167 percent since 2010. “Our customers, which run the gamut from family run farms to multinational corporations, are experiencing economic challenges just like everyone else,” said eMaint CEO Brian Samelson. “That means, more than ever, they need partners that save them time and money. eMaint has proven it can do that, and customers have rewarded us with their business and referrals.”

To support this explosive revenue growth, the company has kept pace by aggressively growing the size of staff, which has increased threefold in the past three years. In 2013 alone eMaint has hired 15 new employees, the majority of whom are recent college graduates. There are many good reasons to have a constant flow of new college graduates joining the company. “We are always looking for employees that have a high energy level, bring new ideas to the table, and are open to a culture of rapid change as our business continually adapts to meet the needs of our customers.” said Jon Hollander, eMaint’s Executive Vice President of Operations.

eMaint’s flagship product is X3, a cloud based Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS). X3 is supported by a full range of services – from implementation to training in advanced applications such as predictive maintenance and integration with third party applications to work order management and tracking. Its “Software as a Service” (SaaS) model emphasizes a high degree of configuration and flexible pricing models geared to the needs of all business sizes. Support for mobile devices has made the application even more accessible to a workforce of technicians who are no longer required to be in an office or at a computer to access the system. Its customer base now surpasses 18,000 users from approximately 3,500 customer sites. eMaint also enjoys a high customer retention rate of 96%.

In 2012, eMaint was named South Jersey’s fifth fastest growing private company by the Philadelphia Business Journal, received the BOSS (Best of SaaS Software) award from THINK strategies and was included in the “Philly 100” honor roll of fastest growing privately held companies by the Entrepreneurs’ Forum of Greater Philadelphia.

“It’s not often for a company that’s been around as long as we have to see the level of growth over the past few years that we have experienced,” said Samelson, who founded eMaint. “Our key to success is simple: We listen and respond to customer needs. When we say, ‘your success is our mission,’ it’s not just a slogan.”

Inventory Management Specialist Phillip Slater Releases New e-Book The Optimization Trap

In a move that capitalizes on technology’s ability to provide written works through mobile devices and financially supports community philanthropies, The Optimization Trap has been recently released exclusively in digital format. Written by inventory management expert Phillip Slater, the book is now available on Kindle, Kobo, Nook, iPad, Sony, and other e-readers. Mr. Slater’s previous books were published in hard copy by Industrial Press, New York, the world’s oldest industrial education publisher.

Mr. Slater will donate 100% of the proceeds from this e-Book to the Initiate Action Community Fund, a sub fund of The Australian Communities Foundation (ACF), that Phillip and Mercedes Slater established in 2011 to support educational initiatives and causes.  The Australian Community Foundation (previously Melbourne Community Foundation) aims to generate and distribute philanthropic resources to address emerging social issues and to meet the needs of its communities.

“Digitally publishing The Optimization Trap achieves many goals for me: the digital format not only provides readers with more accessibility, but it costs less to purchase. Using a digital format also allows us to channel 100% of the proceeds into our Initiate Action Community Fund which supports various educational causes through ACF,” said Mr. Slater.

Following years of helping companies improve their profit and reduce working capital, Mr. Slater wrote The Optimization Trap to help managers understand why optimization programs often fail to achieve their intended results. The book exposes the pitfalls of optimization programs while offering viable solutions. Based on Mr. Slater’s years of experience in inventory management, he identifies optimization traps and illustrates how to remedy these and achieve peak performance in operations.

“Improving operational outcomes typically involves optimization. It is what managers do. However, sometimes when seeking to optimize, people take actions that, without realizing it, limit both their options and their results. This is what I call the Optimization Trap,” stated Mr. Slater. “How do you make sure that you don’t get caught in the optimization trap and, if you do, how do you get free? This book identifies the key principles to both identify and be free of the ‘trap’.”

Similar to best selling management books such as The Goal, Who Moved My Cheese, and Fish!, The Optimization Trap uses an easy to read narrative style. By using inventory management as the example, Mr. Slater is able to address familiar, realistic everyday scenarios faced by managers and discuss how to apply the principles for avoiding the Optimization Trap. This book speaks not just to inventory managers; its tips and principles are applicable to any situation where managers are seeking to achieve optimal performance in its operations.

For Kindle users, please access the ebook The Optimization Trap via Phillip Slater author’s page at Amazon.com: http://amzn.to/L9npFE

Web Content Management Solutions Are Critical for Modern Day Business

Many organizations have hundreds to tens of thousands of pages of web content, which are becoming increasingly more critical to market competitiveness. Web content management solutions provide an efficient and effective means to make the problem of managing all of an organizations web material far more tractable.

Drupal content management systems (CMS) are open source solutions for addressing the problem of managing web content. Among the many reasons for Drupal’s success, its ability to alleviate technical staff members through the powerful and easy to use platform and its ability to integrate with pre-existing content management systems has made it a popular choice.

May, 2010 – databasepublish.com – When it comes to web content management solutions there is no silver bullet. Just as each organization has its own strategic goals and objectives, the various web content management systems on the market provide a broad spectrum of functionality and usability. As a result, it can be challenging to ensure that you are making the right selection for your organization.

For some organizations, a proprietary, out-of-the-box solution, or an out-of-the-box open source solution can work just fine. Other organizations may require varying degrees of tailoring. In either case, a web content management solutions consultant is highly recommended. Since an experienced consultant has worked with a variety of platforms and performed many implementations, that resource can help you reduce costly mistakes, f r o m product selection all the way through implementation.

The Drupal content management systems are exceptionally flexible and provide a solid long term investment opportunity. The drupal cms can be integrated with current systems in order to reduce error and streamline business processes. By reducing manual steps for web publishing, the Drupal CMS improves overall efficiency while reducing burden on technical personnel.

This essentially places the domain of web content into the hands of the content experts. With technical IT personnel liberated to focus on more technical organizational needs the content experts can directly manage blog posts, photo galleries, press releases, video, tagging, e-commerce and searching functionality. With all of these benefits, Drupal content management systems are a compelling choice.

The selection, migration, and implementation of the various web content management solutions is far less risky with the help of a qualified content management consultant. They can help to ensure that the goals of a stronger web-presence, improved website effectiveness, increased workflow efficiency, and organizational consistency are met and/ or exceeded.

Efficient and effective websites are in no uncertain terms critical components to businesses and organizations these days. In response to the demand for improved Web presence, a variety of Web content management solutions have helped organizations cross the chasm from ad hoc and time consuming Web content management, to tightly integrated Web content management systems.

Web Content Management Solutions Drive Website Success

While there are many different Web content management systems on the market, Drupal content management systems (CMS) provide a useful open source solution to the needs of many organizations. The ability to tailor and integrate Drupal with pre-existing content management solutions and its accessibility to non-technical users make it an exceptional choice.

April, 2010 – databasepublish.com – Choosing among the many Web content management solutions can be a non-trivial task.

When choosing to implement a Web content management system it is highly recommended to obtain help from a knowledgeable Web content management consultant.

A Web content management consultant familiar with Drupal content management systems as well as different proprietary products can provide indispensable value for organizations during part of, or over the course of the entire implementation process. Oftentimes, in-house implementations result in sub-optimal results, primarily due to a lack of expertise with current Web content management solutions. Many pitfalls may be avoided by choosing a content management consultant that is a veteran in the industry.

Drupal web content management solutions may be tailored to integrate with an organization’s current content management system. Additionally, Drupal content management systems are known for their high level of performance and ease of use for the non-technical user. What this means for organizations is that a properly implemented Drupal CMS can eliminate the need for technical personnel to be involved with Web publishing activities.

The advantage of having non-technical personnel managing Web content is that then the content experts can directly manage press releases, blog posts, video, photo galleries, e-commerce, tagging, and searching functionality.

The consultant’s level of experience with a broad range of content management solutions is important to consider when choosing a Web content management system. A consultant that is familiar with implementing and tailoring not only Drupal content management systems but a wide-range of content management solutions can help reduce any bias that might arise f r o m a consultant who is only familiar with one type of system.

Web Content Management Solutions for the Modern Era

Sophisticated requirements demanded by organizations and the wide variety of web content management solutions on the market can create a puzzling problem for in-house personnel.

Challenges And Solutions In Selecting A Digital Asset Management System

databasepublish.com – Digital asset management has become a center-stage issue for many organizations. With thousands of digital assets and oftentimes thousands of distribution channels, an effective and tightly integrated content management system has a strong correlation with an organization’s market competitiveness.

Challenges And Solutions In Selecting A Digital Asset Management System

Some organizations’ success relies on the support of a network of agencies and affiliates that are distributed around the world, which are responsible for promoting the products and services of that organization. The challenges that arise are many and may include the cataloging of photography and video as well as the quality assurance of consistent company branding strategies.

A digital asset management system may help in centralizing marketing efforts; however, new capabilities are often required in order to support growth. The growth may sustain a broader range of assets as well as increased flexibility for users.

A recommended course of action is to develop a content management system strategy that takes into consideration organizational needs and then matches the requirements with the appropriate vendor applications available. The concept is simple enough; however, the current state of digital asset management system products includes highly technical descriptions that can be difficult to put into layman’s terms or compare appropriately among vendors.

To compound the problem, it can be difficult to reduce the influence of vendor salesmanship when selecting a digital asset management package. As a result, several organizations choose to use a content management system consultant in order to more appropriately discern the right direction for their business. The consultant essentially bridges the gap between the vendor and the customer.

The greater the depth and breadth of knowledge of the content management consultant; including experience with web content management systems, multi-channel systems, work flow management systems, and digital asset management systems, the greater the opportunity is for the final product to meet or exceed the expectations of the organization.

The ultimate digital asset management strategy appropriately includes a request for proposal (RFP) process that is somewhat iterative. Oftentimes, proposals f r o m vendors use vendor-specific, verbose, and very technical descriptions of their products. It is up to the content management system consultant to assimilate the information, place it into layman’s terms, and normalize it for a more appropriate comparison.

This may entail additional clarification f r o m vendors to be presented in a normalized and summarized compilation for the most appropriate selection. Once the vendor finalists are distilled down, a choice can be made or a meeting can be held in order for the vendors to distinguish their products f r o m their competitors. The process helps to find the right vendor choice and assists in the determination of a more focused strategy.

Advantage in the marketplace. For the past 10 years, it has helped businesses in a wide-range of industries find the right digital asset management for them. DPCI has the professional and technical requirements necessary for consulting, providing, tailoring and completely implementing successful digital asset management system.
