Carrie Crabill created a new topic LaunchPad2X Announces Call for Applicants in the forums.
LaunchPad2X, an Atlanta-based women entrepreneurship program, announces today a call for applicants, seeking women founders and CEOs who are interested in accelerating the growth of their business, to participate in a month long educational and mentor program. The program offers entrepreneurs lessons in expanding business acumen, becoming investable and enhancing leadership skills from Fortune 1000 companies and private company executives, investors, academia, the U.S. Military, and professional service firms. The application deadline is August 15, 2014.

LaunchPad2X is intentionally designed exclusively for women-led businesses. While women are outpacing men in launching companies, overall women-led and women-owned businesses remain smaller and trail in growth. “Our goal is to reverse this trend by enhancing the skills and resources for women in entrepreneurial leadership roles, while providing them tools for igniting growth in their companies,” says Bernie Dixon, Chairman and President of the Atlanta Technology Angels, the foundational partner for LaunchPad2X program.

The program targets women running an early stage business who are ready to take their business to the next level and equips them with skills to grow rapidly from founder to Chief Executive Officer. Selected participants will be paired with experienced advisors to help guide them through leadership lessons and the process of getting "investor-ready.” The month long program includes three sessions that will cover a range of developmental courses addressing business strategy, tactics with investors and adopting a CEO-leadership style.

A panel of supporters and local business leaders will contribute to the program and review applications for acceptance. Supporters include Startup and Invest Atlanta, Advising Angels, Coles Business School at Kennesaw State University, The Cooks Warehouse, Frazier & Deeter, GH Consulting Group, KPMG, Morris Manning & Martin, Siavage Law Group, Trevelino/Keller and other key businesses throughout the Southeast. Additionally, Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE: WFC) is the Enterprise-level banking sponsor for LauchPad2X. “Wells Fargo has a keen interest in supporting women entrepreneurs and new companies with innovative financial and business solutions. These up-and-coming leaders are positioned to have a huge impact and we want to partner with them to ensure their success,” says Sean Mabey, small business strategy director for Wells Fargo’s Southeast region. Sponsorship opportunities are still available for organizations interested in partnering with LaunchPad2X to support women entrepreneurs.

Past graduates of LaunchPad2X include companies that are beating the odds for startups; ninety percent of them are still in business, and all experienced a high growth period in the first year after the program - 300 percent revenue growth on average. The overwhelming majority of the companies have signed on huge customers such as GE, Walmart, Toys “R” Us, Apple, Aaron's, and Macys. “It’s inspiring to see how these companies have grown after graduating from LaunchPad2X,” continues Dixon. “They are hiring, working with contractors, growing revenue and becoming profitable early in the company's lifecycle. Our program also ensures that advisors and sponsors are available to provide ongoing assistance and serve the companies after graduation as needed.

Chosen applicants will attend LaunchPad2X sessions at various Atlanta business locations which provide participants an opportunity to interact and network with the local business community. Sessions will take place on Sept. 19, Oct. 3 and Oct. 14, 2014. Space is limited for this competitive program so interested entrepreneurs are encouraged to apply soon. To apply, download the application from angelatlanta.com/education/launchpad2x.

Aptean Launches New Release of Axis ERP for
Metals Industry


Atlanta, July 16, 2014 — Today, Aptean announced the launch of Axis 6.2, the latest version of its industry-leading ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solution designed for metals producers, wire and cable manufacturers and metals service centers. Axis delivers innovative, yet practical, solutions to the strategic operational challenges of the metals industry and provides measurable results and return on investment.

Axis is the leading ERP solution for the metals industry, supporting the operations of many of the world’s largest metal, wire and cable manufacturers. For example, current Aptean customer Perryman Company’s forging operation is supported by virtually all of the available Axis modules:

“We use Aptean in the forging facility for planning and scheduling workflows, to know when we’re full, to define lead times, and for raw material purchases,” said Dick Thornburg, ERP manager, Perryman Company. “We use all of the material tracking functions for creating work orders and shop-floor packets, as well as production reporting and labor entry.”

The newest version of Axis 6.2 features new capabilities based on specific input from the customer base, including:

    Advanced Load Planning: Now providing a single, streamlined transaction to enable users to identify orders available to ship as well as build loads and execute complex load shipping.


    Shipping Load Verification: Ensures that the material in a load to be shipped is completely confirmed and verified across the shipping process, to further reduce possible delivery issues.


    Roll/Slit Planning: Plans multiple roll/slit (a metal shearing process that cuts a large roll of material into narrower roll) operations into a single work order that can include multiple sales orders. Planning is initiated by a search to identify the best material to suit the layout, with virtual tags utilized to plan intermediate material as it moves through the process.


    Distribution Processing: Designed for service centers and processors to pick, cut, pack and ship material directly from stock in a single transaction, without creating a production work order.


“Axis 6.2 has the specialized functionality that metals and wire and cable companies need to address the business challenges they face every day,” said Peter Weymouth, Axis product manager, Aptean. “Axis is designed specifically for metals-based companies to drive increased efficiency, reduce costs and maximize profitability.”

Megan Hall created a new topic Bowles Rice LLP Selects Aderant Expert Legal Practice Management Solution in the forums.
Client recommendations and high customer satisfaction ratings drive decision to switch to Aderant Expert

ATLANTA – Jul. 16, 2014 – Aderant, the world’s largest independent legal software company, announced today that West Virginia based law firm Bowles Rice LLP selected Aderant Expert as its new legal practice and financial management software. The move to Expert will help accommodate the firm’s exponential growth, allowing them to better manage multiple offices, evaluate business processes with enhanced reporting tools and discover new opportunities for growth and profitability.

Bowles Rice is a full-service defense firm with heavy emphasis in the energy sector. The 160 attorney firm is undergoing tremendous growth and seeking new ways to capture data and streamline business processes. As a result of this growth and additional business opportunities, the firm decided to test the market for new accounting software products. After an extensive vetting process, Bowles Rice determined that Aderant Expert was the best fit for its needs and continued growth strategy.

“In our search for new software, we were seeking an easy-to-use solution adaptable to our ever growing firm, as well as a technology partner who would not only provide the software, but also a strong support team to assist our firm during the software implementation and future use of the product,” commented Marc Monteleone, partner and chief financial officer at Bowles Rice. “We were most impressed by the quality of the support staff at Aderant and the recommendations we received from current Aderant clients, who all raved about their support experience. When you have a small accounting department that services eight offices in four states, it is important to have a strong software partner to work with on the various issues that arise from time to time.”

“Our Support team at Aderant has some of the highest customer satisfaction ratings in the industry—about 95 percent,” shared David Carter, vice president of support at Aderant. “I think spending time with current Aderant clients at the 2014 Momentum User Conference and hearing their stories gave Bowles Rice the confirmation they needed to see that stats like this aren’t fabricated—they’re the real story.” Carter continued, “I look forward to working with Bowles Rice, supporting their Expert system, and helping them accelerate their growth.”

In addition to the core Aderant Expert practice and financial management solution, Bowles Rice will also implement several Aderant modules to improve firm processes and enhance productivity.

• The Expert Found Time module will help increase billable hours for the firm by automatically finding missed time entries
• Expert Paperless Billing will streamline firm billing processes, allowing for faster, lower cost invoicing and error reduction
• The Expert ClearView business intelligence suite will provide greater insight into internal firm processes, helping reduce risk and drive profits
• Expert Imaging expedites the document retrieval process, easing information access and decreasing administrative costs
• Expert Budgeting will help reduce time spent in the budget development processes, increase visibility and control for management, and decrease planning costs, including non-billable partner time

All modules integrate seamlessly with the core Aderant Expert system, providing a single-platform solution without requiring third-party add-ons. Bowles Rice has scheduled to be live on Expert in early 2016.

Happy Belly Food Truck Rolls Out NCR Silver™ Advanced Mobile POS


NCR Silver offers detailed reporting, eliminates need for manual calculations of catering receipts


DULUTH, Ga., July 15, 2014 – Happy Belly Curbside Kitchen, an Atlanta-based food truck, has implemented the NCR Silver mobile point-of-sale (POS) to help grow its “farm to street” business.

The rollout across its four trucks is intended to provide Happy Belly – voted by health site Greatist as one of the top 10 healthiest food trucks in America – an advanced mobile POS functionality such as sales tracking and inventory management.

Since 2012, Happy Belly has served fresh, organic and local cuisine to Atlanta-area customers from its lime-green food trucks. Since then, Happy Belly has made a name for itself in the natural foods scene by educating families about the benefits of eating healthier, sourcing natural foods locally when possible, and donating 5 percent of profits to the Boys & Girls Club of Atlanta to fight childhood obesity.

Before deciding to implement NCR Silver, Happy Belly owners Joe and Amie Bruno realized they needed robust reporting tools to track catering sales, which now account for about 50 percent of the company’s revenue.

“On the traditional food truck side, the faster we get the order, the faster our customers receive their food,” Joe Bruno said. “Silver is fast. But we also need advanced reporting features, which Silver excels at.”

Another Atlanta-based food truck, Tex’s Tacos, recommended NCR Silver to Happy Belly because of the mobile POS’ unmatched consolidated reporting features that enable users to track sales and cash for all mobile locations, Bruno said.

The Brunos have already benefitted from NCR Silver’s reporting features that break out sales by “event,” such as a rehearsal dinner, rather than each order. They also use NCR Silver for daily activity, such as running reports on food truck park events.

“In the past, at events where one person was paying the bill, we would have to log in at the end and manually add up all the charges,” Amy Bruno said. “This was arduous and time consuming, but NCR Silver automates that entire process, which is huge for us.”

Another key benefit of NCR Silver’s reporting feature is how it helps Happy Belly plan what ingredients to take to the food truck parks and to specific events. This visibility is key, as Happy Belly prepares all food on site – rather than in advance.

“We continue to enhance NCR Silver with powerful tools that help small businesses simplify their processes and save valuable time,” said Justin Hotard, general manager, NCR Silver. “For Happy Belly, robust reporting functionality means they are able to tackle the things that matter most, from reducing spoilage to improving customer service at events.”

The Brunos now have four iPads running NCR Silver, one in each Happy Belly truck and one in each of Tex’s Tacos trucks, which they are currently managing and leasing.

To learn more about NCR Silver’s features, visit the website, or call 1-877-630-9711. NCR Silver provides live, 7-day support and access to Silver SidewalkSM, a customer community portal with information and opportunities to connect with other members. NCR Silver tablet POS runs in the cloud, uses consumer-friendly technology, and works on Apple® devices running the latest iOS.

Ingenious Med Urges Healthcare Providers to Proceed With ICD-10 Transition Plans


Atlanta Healthcare IT provider will host ongoing webinar series to provide guidance on transition


ATLANTA, July 14, 2014 – Ingenious Med, provider of the premiere patient encounter platform, which unifies communication, coding, revenue and business intelligence into a single solution, is urging the healthcare industry to move forward with ICD-10 preparations despite the recent postponement of the implementation date.

On April, 1, 2014, the government enacted a law postponing ICD-10 adoption to October 1, 2015 or later. This deferred deadline has delayed transition plans in healthcare systems across the United States. Ingenious Med remains ready for the transition – regardless of implementation date.

To guide this process, Ingenious Med is hosting internal ICD-10 expert, Joy Burnette, RN, BSN, AACC, CHTS-IM, CPHIMS, in a series of webinars throughout the year, which will cover the transition.

“Joy is one of the many industry experts we have working at Ingenious Med,” said S. Hart Williford, CEO and president. “Our application is designed to assist and support physician behavior in order to make efficient use of their time while driving quality of care and increasing revenue. In that same spirit, we have internal experts who offer additional guidance. These insights will continue to help our customers and prospects make this important move in a way that makes business sense and delivers better patient care.”

Burnette’s series will cover, among other topics:

Continuing to move forward with the transition plans already in place, including:
    Pursuing ICD-10 conversion for clinicians by October 1, 2014 and dual coding
    Expanding the timeline to include other internal and external work flow initiatives


Continuing coder/biller ICD-10 education efforts

Reassessing internal workflow processes

Utilizing the additional time to:
    Redefine plans,
    Evaluate/improve clinical documentation to support ICD-10 diagnosis codes,
    Adjust budget and staff resource needs,
    Conduct robust testing


Reaching out to vendors (billing company, billing charge capture, EHR, patient account)
    Continue crosswalk testing
    Expand end-to-end testing with billing, claims processing and EHR partners.

“PointClear’s strategic approach to planning; the quality of its people; and a multi-touch, multi-media, multi-cycle prospecting process truly stand out.
