Bevinco of Sarasota: Inventory of Nightlife

Bevinco already saves Sarasota and Manatee bars and restaurants huge amounts of money each month. In fall 2008, Bevinco will not only be taking inventory of liquor, but of Sarasota nightlife, featuring establishments that benefit from their service.

Bevinco of Sarasota increases the profits of their establishments by an average 10%-15% (sometimes upwards of 25%) while reducing their costs by 5%. This is done through careful comparison of the liquor, beer and wine portions used in a time period with portions sold.

Bevinco then uses a proprietary, industry leading software program to organize and summarize their findings, so that their clients know exactly when and where to take action to control any losses and increase their profit.
Bevinco guarantees better results for their clients, regardless of what current inventory management system or method of analysis they are using.

Bevinco Bar News will feature a bar, bartender, and drink recipe each month, as well as introductions of new liquor, beer and wine on the market. This innovative tool will also showcase profit increases and loss reductions for featured bars, and incentives for prospective clientele.

“The promised results were immediate. All my costs dropped dramatically and are very consistent on a month to month basis. I would strongly recommend any liquor establishment hiring BEVINCO. When and if I open another restaurant, BEVINCO would be the first on board.” --current client
Kangaroo Promotions is excited to assist Bevinco in generating Bevinco Bar News, industry research and consumer and media relations, website coordination and potential event planning.

The Birth Survey: Nationwide Launch

Laura Gilkey of Kangaroo Promotions is proud to serve as Florida Coordinating Ambassador for The Birth Survey: The Transparency in Maternity Care Project.
The Coalition for Improving Maternity Services (CIMS) has developed The Birth Survey: The Transparency in Maternity Care Project for families to share information, learn about the choices and birth experiences of others, and view data on hospital and birth center intervention rates and practices. It is also designed to help providers and facilities improve the quality and transparency of their care.
The members of CIMS are individuals and organizations with concern for the care and well-being of mothers, babies, and families. Their mission is to promote mother-friendly care: a model of maternity care that will improve birth outcomes and substantially reduce costs.
At the heart of The Transparency Project is an on-going online consumer survey that asks women who have birthed babies within the past three years to provide feedback about their birth experience with a particular doctor or midwife and within a specific birth environment. Paired with this experiential data (where available) are official statistics from state departments of health listing obstetrical intervention rates at the facility level. Initial data will be available beginning in Fall 2008.
The Birth Survey was created as a mechanism for sharing and accessing information about maternity care practices in each community.
The Birth Survey will be made available to expectant parents in the contiguous United States on August 15, 2008. At that time, women will be invited to log in to the site and participate in the confidential survey, thus providing the results that will serve, along with the data provided by the State Departments of Health, as a resource for expectant parents in communities nationwide.

SRQ Herald Features Michael A. Gilkey, Inc.

Excerpt from the article:

"Although thoughtfully considered and meticulously planned, the landscape scheme and choices for plant material evolved...The result is just what every homeowner dreams of -- a unified vision expressed in house and garden. It's exactly what should happen when homeowners, architect and landscape architect work in concert from the beginning of the project."
