(PRWEB) April 24, 2015

The locally owned and operated business Caring Transitions of South Jersey has been recognized by the Caring Transitions’ national headquarters as a Rookie All Star franchise.

Caring Transitions of South Jersey, which Charles Reinhart launched in January of 2014, specializes in organizing and managing senior moves, downsizing, and liquidating belongings through estate sales and online auctions. Caring Transitions of South Jersey serves Cumberland, Salem and Gloucester counties. On a national level, the Caring Transitions franchise is the largest resource specializing in this type of senior relocation services.

“The business has really taken off nicely over the last year and I think people in the community are seeing the value of the service my team and I can offer,” Reinhart said. “I was shocked about being recognized with this type of award, but it’s a very nice way to realize how far I’ve come. This gives me the opportunity to set a new goal for myself and the business and to grow with confidence moving forward.”

Caring Transitions Company President Chris Seman said, to be recognized as a Rookie All Star, the franchise had to be open for a full year and have exceeded expectations.

“Caring Transitions of South Jersey demonstrates an understanding of the system and how to execute it and has created a solid foundation that is leading the businesses on an accelerated growth pattern,” he said.

Reinhart knows what it’s like to deal with a challenging relocation and estate liquidation. In fact, when he moved into his grandmother’s house after she had passed away, he found himself in a home packed to the gills with memories.

“When my grandmother passed away, my sister and parents took what they wanted from her house, but when I moved in the house was still 100 percent full. When I saw what Caring Transitions did, it really hit home for me,” Reinhart said. “Whether you’re clearing out a home of someone who has passed or helping a family member move into an apartment or assisted living community, it’s a very difficult time. When someone has lived in a house for long time, there’s a lot of life to go through. It’s hard to go through that alone. Caring Transitions is here to help.”

Reinhart, who has been married for five years and has a young daughter, has been a volunteer firefighter for 13 years and has lived in Greenwich all his life. Before opening Caring Transitions, Reinhart, who has a bachelor’s degree in environmental management, worked in horticultural sales, as a local municipal code enforcement inspector, and as a county health inspector. Since opening his own business, Reinhart has found that Caring Transitions is more than a franchise network.

“Caring Transitions is really a family and it’s wonderful to have the support of the corporate team and the other owners around the country. No matter what kind of challenge you’re facing, you can always find someone in the Caring Transitions network who can give you the guidance you need,” Reinhart said.

Caring Transitions is a trusted and highly respected national company leading the way in senior relocation, household liquidations and estate sale management in more than 150 locations across the United States. Caring Transitions is part of the International Franchise Association, the Small Business Association’s Franchise Registry, VetFran and Minority Fran.

Last week, MetiStream convened the first Spark Bake-off in DC to recognize some of the best Spark experts in the area.

“We are committed to continuing to grow and cultivate the capabilities and innovation around Spark locally, nationally, and within the Open Source community,” MetiStream’s CEO, Chiny Driscoll stated. “Databricks has been a great partner to team with and we are excited to work with them to expand the Spark community and most importantly help customers realize all the value that Spark has to offer”.

“The continued growth in adoption and deployment in production of Apache Spark by enterprises requires consulting services with certified expertise,” said John Tripier, Alliances and Ecosystem Lead at Databricks. “The ‘Certified on Spark’ Program ensures that certified systems integrators have the right level of expertise and experience to deliver Spark solutions. We are excited to collaborate with MetiStream and to see Enterprises benefit from their expertise in fast starting Spark projects and developing large scale streaming solutions.”

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 29, 2014

Company rankings are based on financial performance as measured by inventory turns, return on assets, and revenue growth, in combination with input from analysts.

“2014 marks the 10th year of our annual Supply Chain Top 25 ranking,” wrote Stan Aronow, research vice president at Gartner. “In celebration of this milestone, we have several longtime leaders with new lessons to share and a number of more recent entrants from the high-tech, consumer product and industrial sectors.”

“A fourth of the companies listed in this year’s Top 25 are clients. We believe our Predictive Commerce Platform is helping them respond effectively and efficiently to ever changing market demand,” said Jeff Wilson, President of ORTEC North America. “These clients are proving that it’s possible to deliver consistent growth and reduce supply chain costs at the same time – even in a sluggish economy. This is an impressive achievement, and we’re pleased and feel that Gartner recognizes it.”

Understanding and Supporting the Fully Contextualized Customer

An enduring trait of leading companies is that customer needs and behaviors serve as the starting point for go-to-market and operational support strategies. The best of them present simple, elegant solutions to their customers, driven by conscious supply chain orchestration behind the curtain. Their center-led cultures enable consistently high-quality customer experiences tailored, where important, to local tastes.

Supply chain leaders are expanding this demand-driven concept in terms of how they relate to their customers. It is about understanding customers in a deeper way and blending seamlessly into their daily routines. Ultimately, a deeper understanding of customers in their local environments is helping supply chain leaders capture more revenue for their businesses and improve operational effectiveness.

A Convergence of Digital and Physical Supply Chains Delivering Total Customer Solutions

Leading companies have moved past selling only discrete products or services to their customers and are now focused on delivering solutions. Regardless of industry, these companies want their customers to be loyal subscribers to their solutions. Several of the leading consumer product companies on this year’s list are offering e-commerce subscriptions for their products, in partnership with retailers, to create a seamless multichannel experience. This approach offers convenience and privacy to end customers that would normally buy these products in a physical store and might switch to another consumer brand during any given store shopping visit.

The more progressive industrial companies have suggested order replenishment systems with their dealer networks, based on a superior ability of the manufacturer to forecast demand for their dealer. Some have gone further and are now acting as virtual consultants to their customers’ planning organizations. They recognize that helping improve customers’ internal capabilities is part of a total solution, making them more competitive suppliers.


ORTEC is a leading provider of advanced analytics and predictive commerce solutions. Our team specializes in helping companies meet BIG DATA analytics challenges in the areas of fleet routing and dispatch, vehicle and pallet loading, workforce scheduling, demand driven transportation forecasting, dynamic network planning and warehouse control. ORTEC offers both Windows and SAP® certified and embedded solutions in the cloud. ORTEC solutions are also integrated with & complimented by its strong relationships with industry partners in ERP, Mobile/Telematics & S&OP. In addition to having the honor of being named as winner of the 2012 Franz Edelman Award for Operations Research Excellence with TNT Express, ORTEC has recently won awards from Computerworld, Supply Chain Brain, Consumer Goods Technology and GBC Health. ORTEC has over 1,800 customers and 700 employees, worldwide.

About the Gartner Supply Chain Top 25

The Supply Chain Top 25 rankings comprise two main components: financial and opinion. Public financial data gives a view into how companies have performed in the past, while the opinion component provides an eye to potential and reflects future expected leadership, a crucial characteristic. These two components are combined into a total composite score.

Gartner analysts derive a master list of companies from the Fortune Global 500 and the Forbes Global 2000, with a revenue cutoff of $ 10 billion. Gartner then pares the combined list down to the manufacturing, retail and distribution sectors, thus eliminating certain industries, such as financial services and insurance.
