     HAMMOND – The Louisiana Small Business Development Center at Southeastern Louisiana University will offer a seminar on mobile apps that can benefit businesses on Thursday, April 26, from 9 to 10:30 a.m.

     Co-sponsored by the Hammond Chamber of Commerce, "Mobile Apps for Business – They're Real and They're Spectacular," will be held at the Southeast Louisiana Business Center, 1514 Martens Dr. in Hammond. Instructor for the free seminar is Calvin Fabre, CEO of Envoc, a Louisiana-based company specializing in creating software and applications unique to individual businesses.

     "Clean the popsicle juice off the mobile phone and tablets, it is time to look at business apps that contribute to return on investments instead of entertaining youngsters," said Sandy Summers, assistant director of the Small Business Development Center. "See how GPS-driven time-clock, two-way SMS messaging, Text-to-Speech, and other productivity-friendly technology is right at home on today's mobile hardware. This will be a demo-rich presentation and promises no 'death-by-PowerPoint.'"

     Summers said Fabre will be available for a question and answer session and will have a variety of devices onsite, such as PCs, tablets, and mobile phones.

     There is no cost to attend the event; however, pre-registration is preferred. For more information, contact LSBDC Southeastern at 985-549-3831 or Online registration is available at
