Denver’s Unleaded Group Adds Extra Octane to Web Design

Born as Unleaded Software in a basement in 1996, like so many of the earliest internet ventures, the Denver-based Unleaded Group has grown into an industry-leading web development company with over 40 staff members in offices in Denver and Ahmedabad, India and a client list spanning four continents. To highlight the company’s expanded capabilities and growth, the Unleaded Group launched a complete redesign of its website in June to a Responsive format.

Responsive Design is a process by which websites are coded as they’re built to recognize how an online shopper is connecting to the internet—by a desktop computer, cell phone or tablet. Once detected, the site’s contents automatically populate to fit the fit the appropriately-sized screen—from wide to mid-size to narrow. As growing numbers of shoppers do their shopping on the internet, companies like Unleaded work to maximize their clients’ exposure on search engines such as Google giving them the tools to convert those shoppers into buyers—the newest innovation being Responsive Design.

“Customers don’t want to shop on sites where they can’t use links and buttons without zooming or excessive scrolling, where images are too small to see, or where navigation is difficult or confusing—all things that happen when a website not built on a Responsive or mobile platform,” said Jarod Clark, founder and president of the Unleaded Group.

Google is behind the rush to go Responsive. The dominant search engine internet-wide, Google controls how online searches function. About 1 ½ years ago, Google announced the upcoming change that would require that websites be mobile or Responsive to appear on a list of search findings. Then in early 2015, Google made the switch, altering its algorithm to eliminate non-mobile or Responsive sites from any search conducted on a phone or tablet.

Statista.com, a statistics portal, announced “Worldwide mobile phone internet user penetration reached 73.4 percent in 2013. That number is expected to jump to 90+ percent by 2017.”

“By making its site adaptable (Responsive or mobile), a business guarantees itself a higher ranking in search results,” Clark noted.

Once a shopper lands on a website, it’s crucial that they’re able to move quickly to things that interest them and buy those things easily and securely. This becomes the job of Unleaded’s team of content managers and site developers. “On a website, especially on a small screen like a cell phone, a picture is literally worth a thousand words,” said Leon Averbukh, Unleaded’s Director of Digital Marketing. “By using strong images, we can help a shopper recognize things they want and quickly direct them to the products they want to buy.”

While there are several ready-made templates for building websites—platforms, in the trade jargon—Unleaded’s true expertise is in customized design for Magento, ExpressionEngine or hybrids of the two. “We integrate the best features of each platform to net a site that’s optimized for a customer’s specific needs,” Clark said.

Magento is the leading ecommerce platform, ExpressionEngine is Unleaded’s preferred content managed solution. “Magento is used to power some of the most respected online businesses—like e-Bay, for instance—and is the platform of choice for nearly every serious seller on the internet.” One of the earliest Magento affiliates, Unleaded boasts 11 Magento-certified developers on its staff. “We grew alongside Magento and are experts at integrating its robust e-commerce capabilities with other content management systems like Expression Engine and Craft for large and small clients alike.”

The Unleaded Group includes a solar-powered internet hosting company, Beanstalk Solar Hosting, as well as its Octane India division and was recently awarded Gold Star Certification from the Denver/Boulder Better Business Bureau.

New Orleans-Themed Urban Design Competition Announces Four Finalists: Urban Land Institute To Hold Finale in April


Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 02, 2015

Four university teams, including two from Harvard University, one from the University of Maryland, and a joint team of students from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee and the University of Wisconsin – Madison, have been selected as the finalists for the thirteenth annual Urban Land Institute (ULI) Hines Competition, an ideas competition that challenges graduate students to create proposals for the development or redevelopment of a designated site in a U.S. metropolitan area. The competition is open to graduate students who are pursuing real estate-related studies at universities in North America.

The 2015 competition challenged multidisciplinary student teams with the task of devising a comprehensive design and development program for parts of the Tulane/Gravier and Iberville neighborhoods in downtown New Orleans. This year’s competition is designed to simulate an actual urban design and development scenario, with certain details changed for the purposes of the competition. In April, a $ 50,000 prize will be awarded to the team with the winning proposal, with $ 5,000 of the total going to the school. Each of the remaining three finalist teams will receive $ 10,000. This year, 120 teams comprising 600 students from 60 universities participated in the first round of the competition.

The Tulane/Gravier and Iberville neighborhoods, which make up a historically rich area in the city’s core, contain a mix of residential, industrial and commercial zoning that includes manufacturing plants and other small industrial complexes, many defunct, others still operational. The competition scenario is based on a hypothetical situation in which community stakeholders, including residents, land owners, local businesses, and others in the area bound by the upcoming Lafitte Greenway, the eastern edge of the new medical district, and crossed by the elevated I-10 highway, have come together to create the North Claiborne Neighborhood Improvement Association (NCNIA) – a fictional entity created for the purpose of the competition. NCNIA is seeking a master plan proposal that not only transforms the area into a thriving urban neighborhood, but also highlights its locational advantages, including its proximity to the French Quarter, adjacency to the medical district, and interaction with the Lafitte Greenway.

While based on a hypothetical situation, the 2015 Hines competition reflects many real-life concerns of New Orleans. The competition addresses the city’s continued effort to develop sustainable neighborhoods that represent New Orleans’s uniqueness with the promise of economic innovation and inclusion, as well as access to cultural, employment, transportation, and housing resources. As part of these efforts, the city recently completed the Livable Claiborne Communities (LCC) study.

The finalist teams and development schemes include:


Harvard University: Inspired by the architectural and cultural heritage of the project site and its adjacency to major city destinations and amenities, “Claiborne Grove” recalls the rich landscape that once characterized North Claiborne Avenue and prioritizes redevelopment of the street most critical to the growth and transformation of the neighborhood. The proposal’s central design element is “the Grove,” a linear multi-purpose park and urban landscape sited below elevated Interstate 10.

Harvard University: The project “Tremé 2.0” lays at the southern tip of the old Tremé district, one of New Orleans’s first urbanized neighborhoods outside of the Vieux Carre Rampart. The proposed 23-acre development project anticipatesTremé continuing its great tradition of making innovative transformation to the Crescent City, as it did 200 years ago.

University of Maryland: “The Crossing” development sows the seeds of resilience across the Bienville, Iberville, and Lafitte neighborhoods. By connecting tourist and native, greenway and park, neighborhood and city, The Crossing functions not only as a marketplace of goods, but of ideas and relationships. This commingling of people and place fosters diversity, neighborhood cohesion, and economic opportunity.

University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, and University of Wisconsin – Madison: “Quartier Vert” creates a vision of a community that operates as an intersection between communities, corridors of activity, and a variety of users. Intertwined within each of these strategies exists a neighborhood fabric that suggests the interaction between the site and its neighbors. Capitalizing on the existing locational and socioeconomic advantages of the area, Quartier Vert seeks to revive and enhance the surrounding community.

“All of the finalists make bold proposals for re-envisioning an area that is rich in potential,” said Jury Chairman J. Michael Pitchford, president and chief executive officer at CPDC in Silver Spring, Maryland. “This year’s submissions provide new approaches for how a combination of uses all work together to create an attractive destination that is financially realistic. These entries are all reflective of an up-and-coming generation that will provide fresh ideas worth exploring in the creation of sustainable urban landscapes.”

The competition jury consists of renowned experts from diverse backgrounds in real estate development. Jurors represent a strategic mix of land use experts, including developers, brokers, architects, urban designers, landscape architects, urban planners, and policy officials. In addition to Jury Chairman Pitchford, other jury members are: Tara Carter Hernandez, president, JCH Development, New Orleans, Louisiana; Dennis Dornan, senior associate and studio director, Perkins+Will, San Francisco, California; Kyrus L. Freeman, partner, Holland & Knight, Washington, D.C.; Jeff Hebert, executive director, New Orleans Redevelopment Authority, New Orleans, Louisiana; Matthew Hopkins, director of architecture and sustainability, StreetSense, Bethesda, Maryland; Michael Horst, consultant, New York, New York; Stephen G. Leeper, president and chief executive officer, 3CDC, Cincinnati, Ohio; Maureen McAvey, senior fellow and Bucksbaum Family chair for retail, ULI, Washington, D.C.; Kathryn L. Reynolds, founder and chief executive officer, Vivelan Group, New Orleans, Louisiana; Halina Steiner, creative director, dlandstudio, Brooklyn, New York; and Byron Stigge, director, Level Infrastructure, New York, New York.

In addition to the four finalists, the jury selected eight team proposals for honorable mention. The jury commended the University of Pennsylvania with “The Zipper: The Lafitte Terminal” for its realistic graphics, stimulating neighborhood vision, and overall good sense of placement; the University of Michigan with “Rooted” for its clear and cogent schematic process along with a cohesive and thoughtful environment vision; Ball State University with “Carondelet Noveau” for its creative spaces along the highway blocks, stimulating visualization of the parkway, and the general treatment under I-10; the University of Oklahoma with “Pulse: The Beat Street District” for the proposed urban layout, general sense of connectivity, and the outline density near block J; a joint team from Kent State University, Cleveland State University and Case Western Reserve University with “Delta Commons” for its distinct neighborhoods nodes and treatment of space under the highway; the University of Texas at Austin with “Claiborne Quarter” for its outstanding pro forma, good optimization of space, sense of scale, and key organizing element; the Georgia Institute of Technology with “Down the Line” for its phasing scheme, thoughtful relocation of the RV park, general space layout, and visual legibility; and the University of Oregon with “Urban Groves” for the diagrammatic visualization, a good optimization of real estate in plan, as well as the outlined cross section, and general presentation board design.

The Hines competition is part of an ongoing ULI effort to raise interest among young people in creating better communities, improving development patterns, and increasing awareness of the need for interdisciplinary solutions to development and design challenges. The competition is strategically structured to encourage cooperation and teamwork—necessary talents in the planning, design and development of sustainable communities—among future land use professionals and allied professions, such as architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, historic preservation, engineering, real estate development, finance, psychology and law. The competition is designed as an exercise; there is no intention that the students’ plans will be implemented as part of any revitalization of the site.

In final phase of the competition, the student finalist teams will have the opportunity to expand their original schemes and respond in more detail. Next month, a member of each team will be brought to New Orleans to tour the site and revise their presentations. On April 9, finalist team members will present their schemes to the competition jury members during a public forum in New Orleans. The event will culminate with the announcement of the winning team.

Axonom 2D Visual CPQ To Power Online Design and Orders for Salsbury Industries – Mailboxes.com

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 17, 2015

Axonom, a global provider of cloud-based configure-price-quote and visual product configuration software, today announces Salsbury Industries – Mailboxes.com replaces its database-driven configurator for a 2D visual product configurator powered by Powertrak. The replacement in configuration systems meets the growing demand for visualization in the ordering process, and is expected to boost user adoption, improve engagement, and enhance the customer experience.

Salsbury Industries – Mailboxes.com, a manufacturer and distributor of quality commercial and residential mailboxes, recognized the need to improve its product configuration system. The company began an extensive search to replace its legacy configurator with one that demonstrated a robust rules engine, supported compelling visual renderings, enabled drag-and-drop capabilities, and proved to be scalable and flexible.

“A few years ago, guiding customers through a series of set questions on a public-facing website was industry practice for mailbox configurations,” said Mark Eu at Salsbury Industries. “Today’s customer expects a better, more intuitive, visual ordering experience. To meet that expectation, we are offering a comprehensive, user-friendly mailbox configuration system that simplifies the ordering process, embraces designing and mailbox door placement, displays two-dimensional visual renderings, and a 100% assurance that configurations meet USPS guidelines.”

Salsbury Industries – Mailboxes.com selected Powertrak 2D Visual Product Configurator, hosted on Axonom’s SaaS offering, NetPRM, as a stand-alone product with no immediate integration into in-house software. “We found that Axonom had an offering that met our current and future needs, and the positive cultural fit between companies was also a factor in our decision making process,” added Mark Eu.

According to Mark Eu, the company expects to see major improvements to its user adoption and CPQ processes with Powertrak. “We now have a user-friendly and visually-driven design, quote, and checkout solution available on our website for anyone interested in custom designing particular mailboxes.”

Embedded in the Mailboxes.com website, users will be able to launch the mailbox configurator by clicking on the configurator button. A set of introductory questions help define the number of compartments and type of mailbox that is to be configured. Unlike the database-driven configurator, a two-dimensional visual representation of the mailbox appears on the screen.

“Once the new configurator is launched, customers will be able to more easily design their custom mailboxes,” said Mike Belongie, COO at Axonom. “Powertrak’s rules engine, visualization, and empowerment for individual involvement will increase engagement with both channel partners and customers, resulting in an improved customer experience.”

With Powertrak powering the configuration, the user selects the type of mailbox or parcel door they are interested in and drags-and-drops it into an appropriate location (determined by the rules engine) on the two-dimensional mailbox rendering. From there, additional options are made available such as the type of finish, engravings, labels, and numbering sequence. When the configuration is complete, users are able to save the configuration, quote it, or complete the order at checkout.

“More and more companies are recognizing the benefits of automating their CPQ process and empowering their customers to design, quote, and buy,” added Belongie. “Many Powertrak customers have commented that its visual product configurator solution is not only an effective sales tool, but also a powerful marketing tool.”

About Axonom

Axonom is an independent software vendor that develops, designs, and markets Powertrak, the innovative B2B revenue management suite for high-tech and manufacturing industries. Powertrak enables companies to successfully sell and service to its customers and partners in an environment that requires multi-level relationship tracking, web self-service, partner/dealer loyalty management tools, streamlined quote-to-order processing, service revenue management, hassle-free payment options, and a worldwide presence.

Interior Design Services Procurement Category Market Research Report from IBISWorld has Been Updated


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 22, 2015

Interior design services have a buyer power score of 3.3 out of 5, indicating market conditions that are somewhat favorable for buyers. Low market share concentration, which has fueled competition among suppliers, combined with moderate product specialization and low supply chain risk has worked in favor of buyers. “With a wide selection of suppliers available, no vendor accounts for a substantial portion of market share, and buyers can pit suppliers against one another to obtain the best pricing,” says IBISWorld procurement analyst Kiera Outlaw. “Moreover, the large pool of available suppliers keeps product specialization at a moderate level, which also benefits buyers.” Finally, low supply chain risk ensures that buyers will not experience a shortage in supply or disrupted services.

Unfortunately for buyers, interior design service prices have been rising during the past three years. Strong price growth during the period largely resulted from increasing demand as the economy returned to growth and facilitated a surge in construction activity. “With the economy on the mend, corporate profit rose and the number of businesses increased, all of which contributed to strong demand for interior design services,” adds Outlaw. “In light of stronger demand, suppliers increased their prices, which has hurt buyer power.” Furthermore, the low availability of substitute services also undermines buyer power. Buyers can develop an in-house design team, but those employees can lack crucial knowledge of design services, such as adhering to building codes and regulations.

In spite of rising prices, price volatility has been low and is expected to remain low during the next three-year period. Low price volatility allows buyers to confidently secure their interior design services without fear of prices rising unexpectedly. However, prices are forecast to rise further in the next three years, and buyers are encouraged to secure their interior design services now rather than later.

Weight Loss Resort Reveals San Diego’s Healthiest Interior Design Makeover


Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) January 07, 2015

Southern California’s premier weight loss and fitness resort, PFC Fitness Camp partners with Internationally recognized Interior Designer, Susanna Samaniego of 4 CORNERS International Design Concepts to complete the weight loss resort’s full wheel of wellness—that is to create the absolute healthiest atmosphere for clients in PFC Fitness Camp’s Omni La Costa Resort and Spa headquarters.

When one thinks of health, the obvious thought is typically a healthy mind, healthy eating, and a healthy dose of exercise… but what about the effects of keeping a healthy home? Could a healthy home lead to weight loss? Or even better, optimal health? Recent studies show there is a direct correlation between clutter and stress as a proven contributor to weight gain and making healthy decisions. PFC Fitness Camp has helped over 3,000 individuals lose significant weight through behavioral health, nutrition, exercise, and now environment as the health-centric resort reveals it’s own interior transformation with design cues from San Diego’s must-have designer, Susanna Samaniego.

“Health is a state of well-being,” states designer, Samaniego “in which numerous components are in balance with one another: Mental, Physical, Nutritional, Emotional, Social, Spiritual and Environmental—which is where I come in. A home base needs to be a daily retreat of tranquility after the hectic hours of life. Everything from lighting to paint color can affect sleep, motivation, energy levels and overall health.” The internationally sought after designer illustrates her 5-step prescription for a healthy home in PFC Fitness Camp’s own headquarters, commonly known as Center Court.

Order – Clean Space, Clean Mind: Humans have a habit to collect, accumulate and save a variety of stuff. Clutter heightens stress, collects dust, and effects efficiency. In fact, most experts agree that clutter can be a contributing factor to one’s compliance to exercising, eating well and maintaining other healthy behaviors. In an effort to lead by example, PFC de-cluttered every square foot of the resort’s Center Court. Almost all administrative paperwork is now digital, books, magazines, and other health literature have a home in PFC’s new THINK – EAT – MOVE library, white boards are mounted to the wall opposed to the previous, obtrusive roller, and each client is assigned their own locker so-to-speak to keep miscellaneous personal items off of chairs, tables and floors.

Color – The Orange Effect: Orange is the color of happiness, confidence and energy. it is the best emotional stimulant. It strengthens the appetite for life, connects to the senses and helps remove inhibitions. PFC’s main brand color is orange chosen specifically for the psychological impact behind the bold hue. Susanna incorporates the energizing color tastefully throughout the building in office soffits, ceramic accents and custom-designed bathroom signage with appropriately illustrated stick figures lifting weights. A soft white covers the main walls to maintain the building’s mediterranean essence, and a warm grey gives the traditional beams a modern update.

Nature – Bring the Outdoors In: Houseplants do more than beautify a space. According to healthline.com, Research shows that plants inside a home can produce numerous physical and mental health benefits. Plants naturally fight pollutants caused by compounds in paints, furnishings and building materials, they can enhance cognitive function, increase self-esteem and reduce anxiety. Samaniego brings life to the multi-functioning room with refreshing Fiddle Leaf Fig indoor plants. The lush, sculptural eye candy lines PFC’s rest area as a natural wall for privacy, greets guests at the main entrance and adds purifying CO2 throughout various areas of Center Court.

Lighting – The Mood Booster: Lighting has proven to have a large affect on emotions, such as happiness and sadness. Adequate lighting naturally evokes positive feelings, and dark, the opposite. Natural light specifically can be healing to the mind, body and soul, and exposure to it has many mood boosting health benefits. Samaniego stripped the walls of the once heavy, draped curtains to reveal more of Southern California’s highly sought after sun and the building’s incredible french doors which lead out to the full-length patio overlooking La Costa’s iconic Tennis Courts. Additionally, track lighting was updated and positioned purposefully to gently brighten the building.

Personalize – The Ultimate Comfort Zone: A home that reflects the individual residing in it automatically produces a feeling of comfort—it’s welcoming, familiar and restorative. Susanna brilliantly personalizes the healthy retreat turning coastal, PFC destinations like La Jolla’s Torrey Pines and Swami’s Beach to life in the form of large format wall graphics produced by local photographer Pete Katcov. Perhaps the most breathtaking moment of “comfort”, however lies in the oversized custom art of San Diego’s Ponto Beach, created by photographic artist, Jeff Lewis. The San Clemente-based artist boasts national recognition for his innate ability to capture that special, single split second in time and turn it into stunning, almost optical allusions for the eyes to explore.

PFC’s renovated Center Court is open for business just in time for the wave of weight loss resolutions. For more information on 2015 rates, please visit http://www.premierfitnesscamp.com/contact-us/

Whether weight loss tops the resolution chart this year or fitness in general—remember, home is where health begins.
