CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- Labor SMART, Inc. (OTCQB: LTNC) (the "Company"), a leader in providing on-demand blue collar staffing primarily in the southeastern United States, today said that it sees a strong summer ahead and that its second quarter revenue is on track to be the best ever recorded in the Company's history.
Meeting with the members of the financial community in Chicago, Ryan Schadel, Labor SMART's CEO said, "All indications point to very strong second and third quarters." He noted that Labor SMART is experiencing on a regional level much the same activity and confidence that was reflected in the recent Markit Economics preliminary index of US Manufacturing survey released earlier this week. The recently released index showed that US manufacturing increased to 57.5 in June, the highest since May 2010.
"We are seeing similar confidence and increased activity not only in the manufacturing sector, but from construction, hospitality and other segments as well. While some of this can be attributed to pent-up demand following the many weather-related issues in the first half of the year, there is a definite increase in activity that is attributable to better business conditions," said Schadel.
Schadel added that Labor SMART expects that revenue for the second quarter will be the best the company has recorded in its history and that revenue should continue to grow in the third quarter, particularly among those stores that have been open for nine months or longer.
Labor SMART has been growing its business, both organically through new offices as well as with certain strategic acquisitions. The company recently became self-insured in 14 states. This new large deductible worker's compensation insurance policy will improve cash flow, result in a lower cost of sales and add one to three hundred basis points to the company's gross profit margins, all of which should begin to be reflected in third quarter 2014 results.
Labor SMART, Inc. provides On-Demand temporary labor to a variety of industries. The Company's clients range from small businesses to Fortune 100 companies. Labor SMART was founded to provide reliable, dependable and flexible resources for on-demand personnel to small and large businesses in areas that include construction, manufacturing, hospitality, event-staffing, restoration, warehousing, retailing, disaster relief and cleanup, demolition and landscaping. Labor SMART believes it can make a positive contribution each and every day for the benefit of its clients and temporary employees. The Company's mission is to be the provider of choice to its growing portfolio of customers with a service-focused approach that enables Labor SMART to be seen as a resource and partner to its clients.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
