eThor and SpeedLine Announce eMarketing Partnership

LAS VEGAS, NEV. – Through a new partnership with eThor, pizza and delivery point of sale developer SpeedLine will give their POS users access to a convenient web and social marketing dashboard. The eThor dashboard makes it easy for restaurants and retailers to extend their marketing to all online channels directly through SpeedLine’s point of sale system (POS).

The new marketing solution tightly integrates with eThor online ordering, or can complement a web ordering solution from another vendor.

“This collaboration marks a leap forward in the world of online to offline commerce, and our combined solution is the first of its kind in the marketplace,” eThor CEO Gary Ziegler said. “Our partnership will give SpeedLine POS users the tools harness the enormous and ever-growing mobile commerce industry.”

With eThor’s campaign intelligence tools, SpeedLine POS users will be able to manage their entire online marketing efforts from one convenient dashboard. From social media to e-mail to online ordering, eThor’s platform provides a one-stop shop for online marketing. All of eThor’s tools will be fully integrated with the SpeedLine POS system and available to every SpeedLine customer.

“Restaurant operators get bombarded with calls all the time from vendors offering to manage their Facebook or text marketing,” said SpeedLine Marketing Manager Jennifer Wiebe. “With this new solution, our users can easily manage all their online marketing themselves, at a fraction of the cost.”

With Speedline’s state-of-the-art POS technology and eThor’s campaign management and intelligence tools, restaurant operators can manage all their social media, e-mail, text and blog marketing—along with web, mobile and Facebook ordering if they choose—for a single restaurant location or a chain. Restaurant operators can schedule e-mail, text, and social marketing in advance, or push out a click-to-order menu special to customers to drive same-day lunch traffic.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
