We are proud to offer cutting-edge apps for Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Nets, which allow fans to learn more about the venue and stay connected to their team, said Brett Yormark, CEO of the Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center. These apps compliment the state-of-the-art technology thats already in Barclays Center and continue our goal to provide the best in-event experience of any sports and entertainment venue.

Barclays Centers mobile app will bring fans closer to and more involved with the action than they have ever been regardless of where their seats are located, said Chip Foley, director of building technology, Forest City Ratner Companies (Developer of Barclays Center). When we began designing the visitor experience for Barclays Center, we knew that technology would be a key element. The mission was to add to the experience of being in the arena – with this app I am confident we have created the world’s best fan experience.

The Brooklyn Nets app allows fans to stay up to date with the team by delivering live score updates, live stats, videos, schedules, and team news. Fans can also send photos and texts to the scoreboard. The Brooklyn Nets app is presented by tastytrade, an online financial news network with live market talk and trading strategy for investors at every level. Tastytrade was created by the founders of thinkorswim.

The extensive Wi-Fi network in Barclays Center and Ciscos StadiumVision Mobile product gave us great tools to work with when creating mobile apps for the arena and the Brooklyn Nets, said Tobias Dengel, CEO of WillowTree Apps and partner at Apps for Venues by carbonhouse. We are certain that Barclays Center guests will be surprised and delighted by the functionality of these apps, especially when ordering food and viewing in-arena live video.

Barclays Center offers free, fast, and reliable Wi-Fi for arena patrons, allowing thousands of fans to use the network at the same time. The installation of the network was completed by High Point Solutions, a partner of the arena and the Brooklyn Nets, and a Cisco Gold Certified Partner.

Seattle Call Center Moving Corporate Office to Benaroyas Sixty 1 Hundred Georgetown TechDwellers

Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) February 27, 2013

Sound Telecom, a leading nationwide provider of 24 hour Telephone Answering, Call Center and Cloud-based Communication Services and three-time winner of the Inc. 5000 Award announced today it is moving its corporate headquarters to TechDwellers, a fully supported space designed to enhance the growth of developing companies.

Relocating a corporate office is never easy. Sound Telecom had stringent criteria in its yearlong search to lease or purchase office space in Seattle. It was important for us to remain in Seattle, states Cheryl LaBaw who oversees facility management for the company. We have a passion for the Seattle business community and economic development in this area. We were looking for a flexible, scalable working environment to support the growth we are expecting over the next several years. It was essential that our corporate staff have an open, collaborative workspace with the same look and feel of our call centers. We wanted a facility that appealed to our employees, customers and vendors and also had quick airport access and an entrepreneurial, innovative growth oriented environment. We are continually focused on making Sound Telecom a great place for our employees to work, added Brian Gabriel, Sounds chief operations officer, We wanted a location that provided distinguishable benefits for our employees including an exceptional work environment, an employee fun room, a reasonable commute, bus and bike route access, and easy access, no-charge parking.

After an intense, year long search for a corporate home, it may seem a bit unusual that an established 27 year old company would find the perfect fit in a facility designed for start-ups and emergent tech companies. As it turned out, it was not peculiar at all.

TechDwellers features highly flexible and customizable private office suites from 300 to 10,000 square feet plus co-working spaces in a creatively charged building. It is located on the 5th floor of Sixty 1 Hundred Building at 6100 Fourth Avenue in the Georgetown area of Seattle. Strategically located and easily accessible from I-5, highways 99 and 509, TechDwellers offers exceptional transit access (Metro bus 23, 60, 123, 124, 131, 154 & 173) and is only ten minutes from downtown Seattle.

Sound Telecom selected the TechDwellers location due to its scalability for anticipated rapid growth. We expect to double the size of the company in the next 2 to 3 years, said Michael LaBaw, the companys founder and president. In addition to housing our corporate office, we hope to start building call center seats in Seattle as we do in our 18000 square foot call center facility in Spokane and our Bilingual Service center in Denver, Colorado. We were looking for plug and play and we found it at TechDwellers. The facility has all the amenities and support we need to grow including; 24/7 access, shared board and conference rooms, event spaces, and the opportunity to work in a community of like-minded growth companies. We found the open-space, glass-walled, collaborative ambiance we were looking for and the great views of Seattle and Mt. Rainier are icing on the cake. This is a huge upgrade for us and we are very excited about it.

We are cost-conscious, budget minded and embrace the shared-service model. adds Sydney Morgan Diamond, Sound Telecoms chief financial officer. That coupled with the flexible lease terms made the financial aspects of the decision very straight forward.

The convenient location, outstanding neighborhood amenities, front desk concierge greeting team, free conference rooms, free parking, great on-site dining options such as Skillet Street food and the new Food Truck Pod were all important factors that brought Sound Telecom to our Sixty 1 Hundred Building in Georgetown. said Larry Benaroya. We are delighted to welcome them.
