Advantages of a portable air conditioner

Written by MovinCool

During the summer months it can get very hot. That is the perfect time to look at portable air conditioning. It is the type of air conditioner that you can move around with from room to room, office to office, hence an appropriate climate control solution for an otherwise non air-conditioned environment. Portable air conditioners also have other advantages.

movincool4The advantages of a portable air conditioners.

  1. Cheaper than all the other types of air conditioners.
  2. Does not require any installation-this is because you do not have to find a professional to help you install since installation is easy. All you need is to make sure the hose is outside.
  3. More efficient on energy consumption- it uses less energy as compared to central air conditioners which will cool the whole area even if you just need to cool a specific room or section.
  4. Additional features – some portable air conditioners have extra features such as air “dehumidification” which reduce moisture in the air. This is especially important as it helps to reduce growth of mold and other agents.
  5. It also functions as the perfect stand in when a running a/c unit fails. For example, when a server room air conditioner fails, a portable a/c is the perfect interim solution until it is repaired.

MovinCool specializes in AC units for various indoor and outdoor cooling needs including portable a/c and data center cooling.

The Advantages of using an Online Time Clock

Written by Allied Time

Unlike the traditional time machine, online time clocks allow employees to clock in and out online. This can be done on a browser or a mobile phone app. There are a few advantages online systems have their traditional counterparts:

 alliedtime2Speed

Unlike physical time tracking systems, the data is available instantly. This is convenient when distributed teams and multiple locations are involved. Usually the data needs to be synchronized from each machine to a central server or computer and then the data is processed. With an online time clock, all this data is available instantly regardless of where the employee signed in or when.

Cost

Online time clocks are cheaper to deploy than physical systems. With the online system, only Internet access is needed for anyone to sign in and out. Even when an employee is out in the field they can sign out from a smartphone app. Physical systems on the other hand require the upfront costs to purchase the machines and install them. Then there is the maintenance cost. In addition if any machine breaks down then all the data for that day is unavailable until it is repaired.

Ease

Deploying an online time clock is also easy. Once you signup with a vendor you just need to provide access to the sign in and sign out screen to all your employees. For mobile employees only the app is necessary.

Allied Time specializes in providing solutions for businesses, enabling employers and employees to track your time clock online with a cloud-based timekeeping system.

Always Have Power on Hand

By Start Pac

In today’s world, it’s nearly impossible to imagine not having all the power you need. Whether it’s electricity for powering our homes or gasoline for keeping our cars on the road, it’s unfathomable that this kind of life could ever go away. Unfortunately, plenty fo people find that out every year.

 startpac1Hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes are just a few of the natural disaster types that could end up stripping your home or business of its energy source. When that happens, you’ll be glad you have a ground power unit on hand.

 Of course, we’re not just talking about electricity and gas either. For diesel needs, a gas turbine start up can work miracles. Others may need something a bit more serious.

 We’re also not just talking about natural disasters either. A lot of you should have portable power on hand 24/7 for your business. If you work with large machinery, the last thing you want to do is have one of them stop working because they ran out of juice but are too far away from the power supply. Unless you want to tow that heavy equipment in, it makes a lot more sense to have portable power you can bring to it at a moment’s notice.

Fortunately, in this day and age, we have all the tech necessary to make that happen as conveniently as possible.

Never go long without the portable power supply you absolutely need. No matter what type of power you or your company needs, you’ll find a number of options for using it at Start Pac.

The Anatomy of a Space Walker’s Helmet

Summary: If you’ve ever wondered why an astronaut’s helmet has the appearance it does, read on.

Astronauts have some of the coolest looking gear, but all of that gear serves a life saving purpose. Think of the helmet like a self contained bubble, where the astronaut can breathe and function thanks to several systems designed to support life. Even the mirrored visor, manufactured with optical coating systems, is designed with more in mind than just “looking flash.” Read on to get a rundown of the astronaut’s helmet and other gear.

Oxygen and Life Support

A crucial component to any astronaut’s helmet is the ability to breathe, which is directed through what is known as a “vent pad.” These pads help direct oxygen, and pressurize the suit. That’s part of the reason why the helmet resembles a clear-plastic bubble. That is until you apply the mirror visor.

Optics

Using e-beam evaporation, a mirror sheen is applied to the lens of an astronaut’s helmet. Like UV resistant eyewear, this visor is a crucial guard against direct sunlight. Outside of an atmosphere with little to filter the light, long term exposure can be very damaging. The visor’s tint also helps reduce heat buildup in the suit, just like the tinting on the windows of a car. Mirror sheen coatings can reduce the amount of light by up to 50%, which is a huge benefit to the eyes when exposed to direct sunlight long term.

Of course, the visor also serves the very practical purpose of protecting the astronaut’s face from small objects near the face, like tools or garbage.

Why Clocks Are Such an Essential Gadget for Companies

Written By Allied Time

Most businesses couldn’t function without a number of gadgets they rely on every single day. If you asked your average businessman what these entail, they’d probably name things like their computer, their smartphone and maybe one industry specific gadget they couldn’t live without.

However, the truth is that time clocks deserve to be right up there at the top of the list. If you’re not taking these gadgets seriously enough, your company isn’t going to get the benefits it could be receiving from your employees, which, again, is possibly their most important resource.

Think about it. Without time clocks, how do you know when people are getting in or leaving? Sometimes, your own employees may not even be aware of when this is happening. As a result, over the course of a year, you could be missing out on hours and hours of work from your employees. Even though you may not be paying them for it, that’s still a huge loss on your part.

With the advent of time clock online software, you can now track your employees through a virtual landscape. This is important because you can check in on where they are even when you aren’t in the office. Obviously, this means they can work out of the office and still check in with you as well.

 

No matter what industry you’re in, if you have employees, they’re your most important resource. With Allied Time, you can make the most out of this extremely vital asset with a time machine.

Productivity Tools For Employees

Written by Allied Time

There are a lot of tools out there to make your company more efficient. Optimizations are being done in all fields it seems. Manufacturing, import, sales and the list goes on. However, there is one optimization that impacts all departments. Employee time. By optimizing employee time, you are effectively making sure that your employees are producing more to the hour.

A distinction has to be made here. There is a fine line between employee optimization and employee abuse. Optimization means removing obstacles that your employees encounter. The idea is not to make your employees work more hours. One of the easiest ways to achieve this is to use an employee time clock. This is further divided into two main categories: fingerprint time clock and biometric time clocks.

Fingerprint time clock

The concept couldn’t be clearer here. These allow your employees to access the office by just placing their finger on a sensor. The underlying system then tracks the employee and the time. This information can then be used to calculate the time a person has spent at the office. However this might not give exact data. In some cases, a colleague may open the door for several others.

Biometric time clocks

These systems are very advanced. A camera is used to identify employees entering and leaving the office. This also works in the case where multiple employees enter the premises at the same time. You might want to consider that this system is in no way a replacement for security cameras.

Allied Time specializes in various time tracking systems including the fingerprint time clock.
