PS It Matters Selects Relyco ENDURA LABELS to Convey Mission of Supporting Food Banks and Pantries Across the Country

Printing on ENDURA LABEL, PS It Matters Displays How Many Meals Can Be Provided by Each Item Purchased

DOVER, NH -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- Relyco®, a leading provider of business printing and payment solutions, today announced that PS It Matters, an online specialty foods, personal, and corporate gift store, selected Relyco's ENDURA LABEL digital and laser labels to convey its mission of supporting food banks and pantries across the country.

PS It Matters provides specialty foods and gifts at the same price as retails stores and donates 15 percent of the purchase price to the food bank or pantry of the shopper's choice. The impact of each dollar donated is on average four nutritious meals to those most in need. PS It Matters chose Relyco's ENDURA LABEL labels to display how many meals can be provided by the purchase of each item.

"We place a label on each product that displays the PS It Matters brand and tells the shopper or gift recipient how many meals were donated as a result of the donation that came from the purchase of that individual product," said Michael Simchik, co-founder of PS It Matters. "For example, a single jar of jam accounts for four meals, while a bag of coffee accounts for eleven. In a gift set, these and other items combined may contribute to 30 to 100+ meals. Each gift collection of products has an explanatory card that includes a sticker using Relyco's labels that highlights the number of meals provided by the total gift collection purchase."

Since its official launch in June 2012, PS It Matters has provided more than 20,000 meals, putting the organization on track to deliver as many as 40,000 meals by year's end.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
