HALL Group and Zagster Launch Frisco's First Bike Share Program at HALL Park

New program underscores HALL Park's continued commitment to health & wellness

FRISCO, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/18/17 -- HALL Group and Zagster, Inc. today announced the launch of a new bike share program that will provide all HALL Park tenants and visitors with a convenient, affordable and healthy way to get around the Park and its surrounding destinations in Frisco. HALL Park's program will be the first bike share implemented in the City of Frisco and is a key part of the park-wide enhancements that HALL Park has undergone over the past year.

Starting Friday, May 19, HALL Park cruiser bikes will be available at eight stations throughout the park for members to use for on-demand, local trips. Riders join the program by downloading and signing up on the Zagster app; the program will be complimentary for HALL Park tenants' daily use.

"The new bike share program is going to be a great addition for the employees at HALL Park. It will connect them to all of the park's amenities -- including the fitness center, wine lounge and retail plaza -- and will also encourage connectivity between HALL Park and surrounding destinations in Frisco, such as The Star," said Kim Butler, Director of Leasing at HALL Group. "The program will also be an extension of the park's existing health and wellness initiatives, including the HALL Active Fitness Center and system of walking and running trails."

HALL Park's bike share features the Zagster 8, an award-winning bike known for its practical design, comfortable ride and easy handling. The bike includes a spacious basket that's perfect for carrying lunch, gym bags or other personal belongings. And because rider safety is a priority, every bike includes automatic lights, a bell, and full reflectors.

"By providing an efficient and healthy way for employees to get around, bike shares save businesses time and money while promoting active company cultures," said Zagster CEO Tim Ericson. "Progressive companies like HALL Group are leveraging bike shares to help their tenants attract and retain the best employees."

The new bike share promises to ease commutes, while also unlocking vast recreational opportunities for exercise and fun. Unlike big-city bike shares, in which riders must drop off bikes at designated stations for every stop, the built-in lock on every Zagster bike gives users the freedom to ride as long as they want, wherever they want. This hybrid model, which blends dock-less locking for mid-trip stops with fixed station locations for beginning and ending rides, allows users to plan their trips around their destinations -- and not around station locations.

Riding HALL Park bike share is easy. Bikes can be found via the free Zagster Mobile App -- available for iPhone and Android -- or online at http://bike.zagster.com/hallpark/. Each bike has a unique number which riders enter into the app to obtain a single-use code to open the lockbox on the back of the bike. (Alternatively, riders can obtain unlock codes via text message.) A key, stored inside and tethered to the lockbox, allows the bike to be locked and unlocked throughout a ride so users can plan their trips around their needs -- and not around the locations of stations. After a rider returns the bike to a designated Zagster bike station, the rental ends and the bike is available for the next person to enjoy.

HALL Group will unveil the program at a kickoff ceremony for the companies at HALL Park on Friday, May 19.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and valu...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
