Philadelphia HVAC Firm Burns Mechanical Launches Building Performance Services Advanced Suite of Operating Intelligence That Adds Verifiable ROI to Maintenance Contracts

An energy savings tracker and other valuable data are part of Burns’ suite of Building Performance Services.

Horsham, PA (PRWEB) July 08, 2014

Philadelphia-area HVAC construction, service, and energy services firm Burns Mechanical is pleased to announce the launch of a new suite of consulting services for its commercial clients called Building Performance Services. The energy benchmarking, operations cost saving, energy monitoring services and full energy auditing capability will provide a measurable, provable return on investment (ROI) in conjunction with maintenance contracts.

“Approximately 30% of a building’s controllable operating costs are related to energy use, a larger portion than any other area of its operating costs,” said Matt Rafferty, general manager of Burns’ service division. “For clients who are willing to invest just a bit more into their maintenance contract, our Building Performance Services will give them the energy intelligence to take control of those costs and improve their bottom line significantly,” said Rafferty.

The services result in a lowering of operating costs and increasing of asset values through optimal HVAC performance. A quantifiable ROI will allow a facility owner to self-fund mechanical maintenance projects through known, predictable energy savings.

“What’s important to our clients is what’s important to us,” said president Dan Kerr. “In Philadelphia energy benchmarking is required, and our clients take the process very seriously,” Kerr said. “Higher and public educators, hospital systems, and private businesses are creating healthy, energy efficient spaces – it’s where this city and this industry want to go, and we’re positioned to help make it happen.”

Specific benefits of Burns’ Building Performance Services include:

    Quantification of energy waste
    Identification and implementation of low/no cost savings
    Identification of control issues
    Creation of energy model and financial justification for retrofit projects

Professional Tax Firm CTR Offers Advice To Taxpayers Receiving Debt Notices

CTR Logo

Honolulu, HI (PRWEB) March 16, 2013

CTR’s Honolulu tax attorney is pleased to announce that the firm is offering consultations for any taxpayers that have received notices relating to tax debt. There was concern amongst executives at the company that some people may be avoiding getting help due to large up-front fees. An individual may not know they need help until they’ve explain their situation to knowledgeable tax experts.

“The IRS will collect on balances owed to them, just like any lending institution or credit card company,” said a CTR spokesperson. “If you can’t repay your state income tax debt in full, contact a Hermosa Beach tax attorney for a solution. We want you to come to us and get a consultation to find out how we can help you with your debt.”

CTR’s tax professionals offering free consultations have seen an increase in clients choosing one of several methods of repayment, dependent on their financial situation. Whether a debt is owed on a state or federal income tax balance, tax specialists take into account debt, income and expenses when suggesting a settlement plan. In certain circumstances, a taxpayer will find the most success from an Installment Agreement. Success in getting rid of debt is the main reason the firm has restructured their fees to allow for the offer of advice.

CTR’s tax firm will, on occasion, solve federal tax problems with a hialeah tax attorney. In this case, charging for consultations will drive away potential clients that need help but cannot afford to spend money on simple guidance when they can’t make their debt payments on time. Taxpayers in financial hardship have been helped by consultations that lead them to apply for Currently-Non-Collectible status. Some clients have discovered during cost-free meetings with tax specialists at CTR that they would be best served by an Offer-In-Compromise, which involves offering a single payment to the IRS at a percentage of the total balance.

A spokesperson for CTR stated that “tax debt is not a thing to ignore. If you don’t pay the IRS and dismiss notices sent to you, you may find that the IRS takes your house, cars, and money from your bank accounts of paychecks. Our consultations at a Huntington Beach tax attorney can be the first step to finding a solution that works for you and the IRS. Don’t hesitate to take advantage of our free advice.”

CTR offers tax debt resolution and tax services for individuals and businesses across the United States. The company uses a three step program to create personalized strategies to help taxpayers settle their IRS debt. The company offers many services, including: state and federal tax debt resolution, IRS audit defense, tax preparation and bookkeeping.

Latest Release of OpenCart 1.5.3 Framework Kicks up the E-Commerce Tool Market: NY Tech Firm Announces Special Upgrade Services

Infinite demands. Empowering solutions.

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 23, 2012

Online business and marketing have come a long way from its initial phase of limited features and resource availability. Users expect much more sophistication, compatibility and functionality in web portals. When compared to other e-Commerce tools, OpenCart always offered a visually attractive interface and other brilliant features appropriate for small and mid level businesses.

But OpenCart mostly fell out of favor with large businesses and operations due its poor template engine.

Highlights of the upgraded OpenCart

    Vat Rate lookup API( compatible with all countries implementing VAT)
    CKEditor( for instant edit of WebPages)
    Better template engine
    Option of manual approval of certain customer group choices.
    jQuery (WebPages have more options like multi-level menus, slideshows and other effects)

To deliver on all platforms that they fell short, OpenCart has now released an upgraded version, which features enhanced capabilities for businesses worldwide. The new version OpenCart 1.5.3 offers many high-end features including Vat Rate lookup API, separate tax ID fields, CKEditor (for editing WebPages with ease) limit, and best of them all jquery integration.

“The market was dominated by Zencart, Magento, Prestashop, OsCommerce and VirtueMart. But these tools weren’t compatible for global operations, they were more suited to North American markets. This is where OpenCart scores as a brilliant e-Commerce framework. For instance VAT and other tax details are vital for online business in European countries along with some Asian countries like India and China. The VAT rate lookup API setting in the upgraded OpenCart lets developers implement tax settings for different countries with ease,” says Vinod Subbaiah, CEO of Asahi Technologies.

“Also OpenCart efficiently addresses site loading time issues, which websites face while implementing Magento, Zencart and OsCommerce,” continued Vinod on the completeness and compatibility of OpenCart for businesses.
