Rosemont, IL (PRWEB) August 09, 2014

On Tuesday, July 15th, Duke Realty kicked off its Wellness Initiative, starting with a presentation on the American Heart Associations Lifes Simple 7 in association with the Disque Foundation. Chris Peters, a registered nurse with over 15 years treating patients with cardiovascular disease, spoke to associates at our Rosemont, IL offices.

Approximately 600,000 people die of heart disease in the US every year – thats one out of every four deaths! These deaths are preventable, with effective ways of reducing modifiable risk factors. In designing the program, the AHA seeks to help build lives free of cardiovascular disease by helping people take control of those risk factors.

Duke Realty hopes that by managing these 7 steps our associates will live longer, healthier, happier lives.

Hotel White Dove, New York, Chooses Hotelogix to Complement Their Rock n Roll Themed Website

San Jose, California (PRWEB) June 16, 2014

For themed hotels, implementing technology can sometimes be a major bottleneck as most PMSs and booking engines do not complement the themed websites these hotels have. When Hotel White Dove, New York wanted to implement a PMS and integrate a web booking engine with their rock n roll themed website, they researched online but didn’t get a booking button which is functional and also looks attractive. For the management of Hotel White Dove, it was necessary that they select a web booking engine that would not only help them streamline their hotel operations but also blend with the look of their thoughtfully designed website. They researched multiple systems in the market and found that the appearance of Hotelogix was simple and neutral, making it suitable for any background.

Erin Cadigan, owner of Hotel White Dove says, I was planning the launch of my hotels newly themed website and Hotelogixs web booking engine turned out to be the perfect solution as it offered the option of changing the colour, font and size, and suited our new design beautifully. To top it off, Hotelogix provided excellent customer service. As the configuration of the PMS is taken care of by the supportive staff at Hotelogix, I now have more time to concentrate on my website launch, says Erin.

Mr. Aditya Sanghi, CEO and Co-founder of Hotelogix says, We are happy to know our carefully developed user-interface design is prompting hotels to choose our services. Our goal is to provide a 360-degree solution to small and mid-sized hotels across the globe, and we are moving in the right direction.


Hotelogix is a unique, cloud-based, end-to-end, hospitality technology solution, built to seamlessly manage hotels, resorts, serviced apartments or multi-location hotel chains, by providing a single window to manage all hotel operations and bookings (online and offline). Hotelogix also integrates with travel agent networks and external booking sites, providing a wider inventory distribution, along with real-time integration with partner sites, group booking websites, and other central reservation systems. Hotelogix is used by both new hotels, hotels previously unable to afford such 360 degree technology, and hotels looking to replace legacy systems with a web-based SaaS solution, which gives greater functionality and a higher level of integration for distribution of inventory. Hotelogix offers 24×7 live support and transparent pricing plans to its customers, and is hosted on highly reliable and secured cloud services. Founded in 2008, Hotelogix is used in over 70 countries including the USA, UK, Mexico, Spain, Australia, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, and Singapore and is backed by Accel Partners.

Inquiry Before Buying @

Nowadays, mobile operators are ready to increase investments in their backhaul networks, and this presents huge opportunity for equipment vendors as well as service providers in the backhaul space. Also, with the rising popularity of small cells and Long-Term Evolution (LTE) deployments, the mobile and wireless backhaul market is ready to embrace new backhaul technology players who can offer cost-effective and high-performance solutions, especially in the small-cell space. MarketsandMarkets expects the global mobile and wireless backhaul market to grow $ 23.3 billion by 2018, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 12.2%.

The North American region in the mobile and wireless backhaul market is expected to hold the largest market size, and over the next 5 years, the Latin American region is expected to experience highest traction in terms of growth.

MarketsandMarkets broadly segments the mobile and wireless backhaul market by the type of equipment used: microwave backhaul equipment, millimeter wave equipment, Sub-6 GHz equipment, and test and measurement equipment; by services being offered: network services, system integration, and professional services; and by geographical regions: North America (NA), Europe (EU), Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America (LA).

The global mobile and wireless backhaul market is foreseeing traction, with growing small-cell deployment, exploding popularity of smart devices, innovation in mobile technology, and more. Nowadays, backhaul has become a critical point of consideration for mobile operators and continuing with traditional technologies is no longer cost-effective for backhauling of mobile data traffic. Cost of backhauling constitutes the major portion of an operators capital expenditure. So, it has become essential for the mobile operators to find cost-effective mobile and wireless backhaul solutions. Also, requirements for backhaul capacity are rapidly increasing and mobile operators are enforced to meet these requirements, in order to deliver quality services.
