TUSTIN, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/13/14 -- Premier Holding Corporation (OTCQB: PRHL) today announced that its subsidiary, The Power Company, USA, LLC (TPC) has set another new monthly sales record, making it five straight months of record sales. TPC contracted another 3,458 households in April solely from its door to door sales team, and this helped push the month to a 16% increase in sales over March, which itself was the previous biggest sales month in the company's history. It was reported earlier that Q1 2014 set new records.
Cheryl Arts, Managing Partner for TPC stated: "The entire team, from the invaluable leadership of Patrick Farah to the door-to-door field managers and sales agents, all have stepped up each and every month to raise the bar and exceed our goals. This accomplishment is especially impressive when you consider the extremely harsh winter we've had in the Midwest. Our door-to-door sales teams braved the coldest of winters, with many days below zero, to achieve sales numbers that would have been impressive under the best of circumstances. This spring we continue to break records month over month and year over year which indicates a successful sales model with a very scalable infrastructure. In addition to our call centers which are garnering momentum, we expect to see all sales initiatives adding to this impressive trend as we successfully emulate our business model in additional states."
President and CEO of Premier, Randall Letcavage adds, "I continue to be extremely proud of the hard work of our sales team at TPC. It's important to note that these records are new contracts at same store sales; we have not yet ramped up our additional offices, nor does this count the revenue we continue to receive from sales made last year on these multi-year contracts. As we open additional offices we should see even more dramatic growth."
TPC continues to set the bar on sales performance for deregulated power. It remains on the cutting edge of innovation in this industry, in part due to its sophisticated sales portal: NEST (National Energy Sales Transactor) enabling rapid, efficient and secure sales transactions of deregulated power. This portal enables sales staff, whether from a computer terminal, a smart phone, or any web browser to access pertinent information on a particular prospect, including their energy profile, and quickly access the energy options available to them. Then after selecting the best power provider, sales agents can process the paperwork online in real-time which enables client acquisition in minutes. NEST is easily scalable and can be seamlessly launched as the company expands into additional geographical markets. NEST is also available to other power resellers, which will create additional revenue streams for The Power Company.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big D...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world.
