Event Video: Beerfest Royale in King of Prussia

It seemed like a natural fit for ATS Mobile to sponsor the Beerfest Royale in King of Prussia on October 2 & 4, 2014.  After all, we love beer and we love King of Prussia, Pennsylvania too.

One employee even said “I love you” when I told him he’d be attending the event on behalf of the company and I don’t hear that very often.

While the employees found this to be a rather “enjoyable” assignment, it also is a great indicator of the kind of talent that ATS Mobile has when creating an event video like Beerfest.

So, sit back, watch the video, and enjoy a cold one with us.

Remembering Bob Lansinger

ATS Staff circa 1992

Bob Lansinger (green jacket) with some of the ATS staff, circa 1992.

One of the great things about being in business so long is that you get a chance to meet ordinary people who are quite extraordinary.

Such a man was Bob Lansinger.

Bob was our AT&T representative at Advanced Telecom Services in the early 1990’s.  He was instrumental in helping us grow into a much bigger company through the decade of the 90’s.

More importantly, however, he was our friend.  He lived in the same township as my long-time business partner Bret Dunlap and me.  Our three daughters went to the same high school together, played sports together, and my daughter and his even went to the same college together at Clemson.

My fondest memories of Bob was when we first started the business in suburban Philadelphia and I was still living in Connecticut until we knew for sure that the business was going to warrant a permanent move.  My life was pretty tough then, leaving on Monday morning and returning home on Thursday night with a young son at home that I missed tremendously.  I basically worked all day, because I didn’t have anything else to do.

Bob was the first person in the area who invited me to his home and I remember how nice it was to get out of the office and hang out with a nice family at night.  I’ll never forget what a kind gesture that was and how it was so much nicer to be in the Lansinger home with my friend than at a restaurant with my vendor.

You’ll never meet a kinder person than Bob Lansinger.

Thanks for all you did for our business Bob and thanks even more for being our friend.

Mobile Websites for Pizza Restaurants

Ordering a Pizza from a Computer in 1974

If you want to order a pizza, we have a few, more modern ways than those that were available 40 years ago when these researchers at Michigan State were doing it.

Pizza Ordering by Mobile Phone in 2014

Today, 47% of all mobile searches for restaurants are made via the mobile phone.  I would suspect that with pizza restaurants, that figure is even higher.  Moreover, 60% of those searching for restaurants will convert to paying customers within the hour.  A startling 84% will convert eventually.

A few  years ago, we created mobile websites for our restaurant customers. Mobile websites were easy and inexpensive to create, because they were really a scaled down version of the desktop website.  Most had a URL of  So, while not so good for SEO, it was handy for mobile ordering for pizza restaurants.Cam's Pizza mobile web

Then, responsive and adaptive design came along and it seemed that it would be better to use this new technology for most of customers.  Basically, pizza restaurants got into the mobile game with a website that looked good on mobile and at the same time, they got an updated desktop website for no additional cost.

A case could be made, however, that a pizza restaurant really doesn’t need responsive design or adaptive design.  That’s because load times are so important when it comes to the mobile web and in many cases, my guess is that consumers are loading pizza restaurant websites while waiting at a traffic light or walking through the mall where there’s no availability of wi-fi.

When it comes to mobile websites for pizza restaurants, simplicity is the key.  Our Restaurants To Go specialists will consult with your  pizza restaurant and recommend the best possible option for your business.

And, after you’ve worked with us, you’ll be able to benefit from increased sales like these customers have.
