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: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

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" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
