LLaboratelee's insight:

Independent Audio Visual System integrator has launched a new website to promote one of the leading brands into the UK market after agreeing a major funding deal.

 

www.prowise.co.uk


Bolton -based Llaborate Limited, a family-owned and managed company, currently operates from Westhoughton, Bolton but looking to establish offices throughout the UK in 2016.   Having agreed a multi-million pound funding package from Davenhams & Secure Trust Bank., Llaborate wants to add offices in key locations over the next 18 months. Darren Aspinall, company director, said: "The growth of our business since the launch has been fantastic; we have been able to build our products portfolio, our team and client base in a short space of time. Davenhams and Secure Trust Bank - new financial backing allows us to grow our business and venture into new, and very promising, geographical territories."

 

With the addition of the www.prowise.co.uk site allowing our customers to explore and purchase at ease via faster payments, Purchase order or Lease rental makes it easy to do business with us. “KISS” as we often say “Keep it simple stupid”

 

This will not only boost the business profile and profits, but also help create a number of local jobs in the areas where new offices are acquired. Llaborate Limited has shown great ambition and commitment to growth, and we are proud to support our dedicated great team.

What is an Audience Response System?

What is an Audience Response System? | Technology | Scoop.it
LLaboratelee's insight:
What is an Audience Response System?

An audience response system (ARS) allows a group of people, whether small or large, to respond to questions about any given topic.

 

When in use, an audience response system like OMBEA needs three key elements as a minimum:

 

A question that needs answering.An audience, to answer the question.A presenter, to coordinate the activity.

 

When you buy or rent an audience response system, you should receive different components to deal with each of the above:

Audience Response System software. This can be compatible with Windows and Mac, and allows the presenter to write their questions in advanceVoting handsets. Voting handsets are sometimes known as 'clickers' or 'zappers'. These can be hardware or software based. If they are hardware clickers they are usually made of plastic and powered by batteries. If they are software-based clickers, they are usually either an app for the audience's smartphones, or a webapp. Each audience member will need their own handset.A receiver. This will relay the votes from the clickers into the audience response software for collating and charting purposes. Receivers are sometimes known as 'dongles'.

 

When in use, there is usually a standard process you go through with your audience response system:

 

The presenter uses the audience response software to pose a question to the audience. The question will be in multiple-choice format with several options clearly labelled.The audience, each with a handset, will select their response by pressing a button on their handset. Their choice is transmitted to the receiver and counted by the software.Once everybody has voted, the presenter closes polling through the software and the whole group is presented with a chart of the responses. This is normally a bar graph or pie chart and only shows an overview, without singling out individual responses.After a voting event is finished, the presenter may extract data in the form of reports about the session. These will cover a range of information from response overviews right down to individual responses by handset.

 

Audience Response Systems are sometimes called Personal Response Systems (PRS), or Classroom Response Systems (CRS), depending on where they are being used. In our experience they are used in all of the following places:

Classrooms.Lecture theatres.Conference venuesMeeting RoomsBoard Rooms.

What is OMBEA?

OMBEA is an extremely powerful and flexible audience response system, capable of handling thousands of voters in one go. IT supports many question types from multiple-choice to priority ranking and open-ended 'word clouds'. As such it is trusted by universities, corporates, charities, schools and colleges across the spectrum and across the globe.

LLaboratelee's insight:

All Souls Bolton – Audio Visual Case study.

 

All Souls is a nationally important piece of architecture which is almost perfectly preserved. The Church was established at the heart of Bolton’s Crompton community in 1881 by the Greenhalgh brothers. It is a unique Grade II* listed Gothic Revival building designed by Paley and Austin. But by the 1980s the building had fallen into disuse and disrepair.

In 2007 Inayat Omarji recognised the church’s neglected potential. He gathered support for the regeneration of All Souls and began to seek financial backing. In partnership with the Churches Conservation Trust a rescue plan was developed which would breathe new life into All Souls, crucially, for the benefit of the community and Bolton as a whole.

With all plans and permissions in place building work finally began in August 2013.

 

Leapfrog Technologies are proud to be present and be part of an amazing project right on our doorstep.

The pure determination of the “All souls” team to get this project off the ground is truly amazing. The All Souls and Leapfrog team designed a technology solution that simply “WOWs” the visitors of all ages and religions. “All Souls”

LLaboratelee's insight:

Team Leapfrog deliver another Mantella touch table.

 The Fusilier Museum took delivery of the New Mantella touch table. The Mantella table collaborates the 3m 46" 60 point touch screen, Intel Nuc computer, Touch tech Lima software delivered in a beautiful Vert De Terre. The Mantella table can be ordered in any colour or wood finish of choice, bespoke software solutions are available as well as off the shelf software packages. 
 

 

Brian Gorski MBE said  "The Fusilier Museum relationship with Leapfrog began this last year on the back of the second substantial development to extend the first floor capability. Our requirement was to provide the IT support not only to specific Museum projects to extent the breadth of our learning and visitor experience but also to move into the field of corporate entertainment and conferencing facilities.

 

Leapfrog have been extremely helpful not only in supporting the company with ideas and potential technical capabilities taking us into new domains and explaining how some of the cutting edge technologies can be used to extend our appeal to the military audience, the general public and in particular in support of schools and learning. Additionally, Leapfrog have also been extremely flexible and dynamic with regard to their pricing options and ability to ‘cut their cloth’ to fit our very special environment.

 

I hope to move the Museum to new levels of success in partnership with Leapfrog and hope we can mutually succeed in achieving our goals."

Leapfrog is 15 years old - YouTube

This video is about 15 years old
LLaboratelee's insight:

Fifteen years ago I was working in Healthcare as a professional driver struggling to make ends meet. CSA and council tax were my main debts, but had overdue rent and other bills to say the least. I lived in a council house as I had done all my life. I knew I had to stop just existing and start living.

 

15th November 1999 was the very first day I opened Leapfrog. Several local and national business awards in the first four years.

Whilst I don’t profess to know everything or being a guru of business I started my original business in my council house bedroom building computers with new OEM parts and adding 2nd user monitors.

 

These were sold in the old LOOT newspapers, keeping the specifications the same the advertisement never changed and therefore was on a three day weekly roll out.  At this point it soon became apparent that I could sell an average of ten computers per week and the space and time was becoming a pain point. Suddenly realising that I had an opportunity to build on the small foundation created.  Having come from a difficult upbringing and very little academic skills I set about gaining support from the local business support forums. The Princes Trust played a huge part of getting me off the ground.  Over the years I went from being a Princes Trust client to Mentor to eventually becoming a princes Trust ambassador.

 

Over the last 15 years I have learned so much about people, Business and myself.  I have had some failures through one reason or another. Made mistakes, serious illness, bad debt etc, but I never shy away from taking the responsibility.

The bottom line is we all attend work to pay our way in life, put food on the family table. Obviously business growth and development is a very important factor especially for the longevity of the business.

 

“I had my ups, I had my downs, made mistakes, created frowns
Had a blast, cried a bit, but still trying so hard to make Leapfrog a hit”.

Small video of the great moments of the “Leapfrog story” over the last 15 years.  

 

(Critics never faced victory, nor defeat)
