“E-cigarettes and vaping are being banned in indoor public areas in New York, after Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill into law that will place the same restrictions on new and old nicotine delivery systems,” writes Bill Chappell in their latest NPR article entitled “New York Bans Vaping Indoors In Public: State Law Classes E-Cigs With Cigarettes.”

According to Chappell’s article, "These products are marketed as a healthier alternative to cigarettes but the reality is they also carry long-term risks to the health of users and those around them,’ Cuomo said, in a news release about the signing. ‘This measure closes another dangerous loophole in the law, creating a stronger, healthier New York for all."

“Citing the lack of broad regulations on what chemicals e-cigarettes can contain and how much nicotine they deliver, the governor's office says, ‘These factors could lead to long-term adverse health effects for e-cigarette users and bystanders," the NPR piece continues.

Chappell comments in the article that “When it takes effect next month, New York's new law will cover vaping under the state's Clean Indoor Air Act. The blanket restriction will not apply to people who want to use e-cigarettes in private homes, in hotel rooms, or at retail tobacco outlets.”

Smoking cigarettes might already be prohibited on your property.

But, what happens if your state decides to pass a similar Clean Indoor Air Act? Do you struggle with cigarette smoking offenders as it is?

Now, you’ll have to add another prohibited item to the list. What a headache, right?

Security services companies that want to succeed need software.

Progressive companies understand the downside to complacency and the upside to innovation.

The security industry is a fast-paced, demanding, and ever-changing industry.

How do companies measure up against industry rivals?

Not understanding the value produced by operations management software proves detrimental to one’s success.

Software, inclusive of incident management, and guard tour & inspection software, provide security services organizations with much-needed tools to be effective in the course of tense situations.

Do you agree?

“The Dow Jones industrial average on Tuesday briefly topped 23,000 for the first time, crossing another milestone amid better-than-expected earnings reports and concerns that stocks are approaching another bubble,” writes Avie Schneider in their recent NPR article entitled “Dow Crosses Another Milestone, Topping 23,000 For The First Time.”

“But the 30-stock index ended the day at 22,997.44, up 40.48 points,” Schneider continues.

The NPR article notes “The Dow finished above 22,000 for the first time on Aug. 2.”

“With its new record level, the blue chip index is now up 16 percent since the start of the year and about 26 percent since Election Day,” Schneider comments.

This news appears to be good news for the economy, and indeed a milestone worth acknowledging.

It also got us thinking.

Do you invest a lot of time teaching your staff?

Now, do you invest enough time training them on how to communicate effectively with your customers?

With so many things going on at your property and the possibility of turnover, you’re challenged with ensuring that staff properly interacts with customers.

We know this is difficult.

If they underperform, it affects every area of your operation, which ultimately affects the whole organization.

To be frank: If your team fails to execute, then the entire property is a failure.

How do you solve this customer service puzzle?

You have workers from all walks of life, with different skill sets and training experiences.

Computerized Maintenance Management System is as complicated to say as it is to choose.

It doesn’t have to be.

That’s the purpose of this article.

We’ll stick with CMMS software and provide you the most straightforward format for selecting your next maintenance application.

Fair enough? Good.

We do feel your pain, though – because we’ve built one.

Whether this is your first time, or you’re ditching your legacy system and moving to a new one, know we’re here to provide you with useable insight into making the right choice.

Before you even begin comparing software providers, there are a couple points to consider:

Are you struggling with limited resources?

Not enough staff?

Do you have too much on your plate?

Have you felt that your property was just too small to implement any real-time communications?

You really need to keep reading, because “our property is too small” is a far cry from the truth.

We have an incident management solution for you.

Not only will it help resolve your staffing concerns but it’ll help you overcome any other shortfalls.

Operations for a smaller property can be entirely different than their much larger counterparts.

We get that.

When you have limited resources combined with too much on your plate, the thought of implementing applications might be too overwhelming and your least priority.

Agree?

In case you were wondering, we disagree with this maxim quite a bit. The reason why we do, well, that’s the easy part.
