Hot To Buy

New products for small and homebased businesses.

Tie Guard

While food stains are fairly easy to remove from shirts and other clothing items, the delicate threads of the ties worn daily by approximately 23 million American business people are often at risk during mealtimes. By providing TiGuards for your restaurant, deli or coffeehouse customers, you'll be helping to keep their dry-cleaning costs down while providing a novelty marketing tool for your business.

The decorative paper ties fit snugly over dress ties to provide a protective cover from the spills of your finest food specialties. As for the images you display on the TiGuards, your creativity's the limit; you can either feature your own unique design, using up to four colors, or display your company's logo and phone number.

Prices for the TiGuards range from 15 cents to 26 cents each, depending on the quantity ordered. Minimum order: 5,000 ties. From TiGuard, Austin, TX. To order, call (512) 459-0014

People Scheduler

The newest and most efficient way to maintain the scheduling of your employees, as well as organize various employee statistics, is on your computer. With PeopleScheduler v3 software, you can save time by computing employee profiles, budgets, and more.

PeopleScheduler comes with an easy-to-use Administrator -- a security feature which protects your records at various levels of usership. For example, you can allow your department managers to edit data for employees in their department, but not in others. The software is fully compatible with Windows 95 and allows custom reporting and data sharing with other Windows programs via open data base connectivity (ODBC).

PeopleScheduler starts at $129 (plus S&H), and increases in price according to the amount of licensed users. From Adaptiv, Irvine, CA. To order, call (800) 598-1222.
