Today we are pleased to announce Lodgely, a super simple solution for booking and reservations. This application provides a customizable interface for managing individual, group, and corporate clients.

 

 

Improves customer service
We make contacting your business, collecting client information, and managing reservations as seamless as possible. When a potential customer contacts you via email or phone, a manual record can be quickly added to Lodgely. Alternatively, a person visiting your website can submit an inquiry form that simultaneously adds information to your email marketing database and the reservation system as a lead.

 

 

 

 

Consolidates customer information
As new inquiries are received managers and staff are alerted via email with contact information so they can follow up on the lead right away. Staff can access Lodgely to add or modify reservations, review the calendar, check availability, send confirmation letters, request liability waivers, update customer information, and track required documents.

 

 

Reduces cost of administration
Managers can easily add staff, manage customers, modify trips/packages, produce reports, manage confirmation letters, liability waivers, configure payment processing, and keep track of all reservations and associated documents in one place.

 

The interface is easy to use, saves time, and consolidates our use of email, spreadsheets, and static forms into a single software solution

We are delighted to hear that Eli Moreno’s Surge Tacoma bid was selected by the City of Tacoma to revitalize Old City Hall. The focused teamwork and relentless pursuit of building a startup ecosystem in our community has been a passion of Eli’s long before our company relocated to Tacoma.

This milestone is extremely important for the many people who have worked together to promote our city as a technology hub for innovators, entrepreneurs, and investors. Together we have begun a journey that is still in the early stages of growth.

Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard to get to this point – this is a tremendous validation for our individual and collective efforts. I want to give a very special thank you to Lee Reeves for bringing so many of us together.

If you are interested in joining the 85+ agencies using cloud storage services don’t delay. Now is the time to take advantage of aggressive pricing before it expires in May of 2019.

Look no further than WA State Master Contract 04913, which provides for secure cloud storage through Box at a third of standard pricing. Box is an Enterprise Content Management platform (ECM) that solves simple and complex challenges, from sharing and accessing files on mobile devices to sophisticated business processes like data governance and retention. At this time many State, City and County agencies all across Washington are utilizing this contract and made the move towards the future of working with content in the cloud. 

Box is also the ECM system of choice for thousands of users employed by the federal government from agencies such as:

  • US Department of State 
  • US Department of Justice
  • US Forest Service
  • US House of Representatives
  • US Dept. of Energy
  • US Dept of Forestry
  • US Air Force Recruiting Services

To see how Box can simplify and organize your document storage, collaboration, and retention policies, click here to watch a video demonstration.

Box is also integrated with AIRLIFT Respond, which is approved under master Contract 04913 and can be bundled with Box for further savings. AIRLIFT Respond is a cloud software platform for the management and retention of all public records requests. Respond also provides for annual JLARC reporting. Beginning July 1 2018, many local governments and state agencies are required to track metrics for annual JLARC reporting. These metrics include, but are not limited to, the average number of days to complete requests, average cost of request fulfillment, and reasons why a request might be denied partially or in full.

I have always enjoyed teaching to help inspire others to achieve success. As a parent I often talk to my own children about performing chores, schoolwork, and sports with ‘purpose’. If you’re going to be doing something you should embrace why and how it will benefit you, then act with purpose to the best of your ability. Continue

Not everyone enjoys working from their browser. For a lot of people, the desktop is their preferred place to work and where they feel most comfortable. That’s why network shares are a thing and why Box Sync was originally created. But as technology changes and work gets more complex, shares and syncs can’t always keep up, leading to some big challenges. Things like: Continue
