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.

Things are being built upon cloud foundations to transform organizations. This CEO Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo, moderated by Roger Strukhoff, Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo conference chair, will address the big issues involving these technologies and, more important, the results they will achieve. How important are public, private, and hybrid cloud to the enterprise? How does one define Big Data? And how is the IoT tying all this together?
TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...
