PLEASANTON, Calif. - Activity has been strong over the last three months and Hacienda businesses have been at the forefront of a number of major accomplishments. In addition, the park saw both new and existing commitments made from over a dozen tenants since April.

"Strength seen in the economy that has been reported in the greater Bay Area has also been seen in Hacienda," says James Paxson, Hacienda's general manager. "Leasing activity has advanced steadily and new tenant announcements are expected soon."

Major Business Activity

Here is a summary of just some of what has gone on in Northern California's largest mixed-use development in the past three months:

Gap Taps Technology to Expand Business

Gap is tapping into technology to achieve long-term, profitable growth across its portfolio of brands.

Gap already provides customers with the online ability to reserve and find products in stores and ship from stores. Later this year, the company will test a new order-in-store feature that allows customers instant access to expanded product offerings online.

"We have the world's best collection of American brands coupled with a strong economic model and runway for global growth," Glenn Murphy, chairman and CEO of Gap Inc., said. "As the retail landscape evolves, we continue to deliver on our omni-channel roadmap and focus on owning the shopping experience of the future."

In addition to the new tech innovations, Gap intends to fuel growth and gain share in the $1.4 trillion global apparel market. There are plans to expand in Asia, and the company is excited about the long-term potential of its fast-growing Athleta brand.

Gap, which includes Old Navy and Banana Republic, among others, is based in San Francisco with an information technology office in Hacienda. Visit gapinc.com to learn more about the company.

JVF Designs Sleek New Website for Local Nonprofit

A local nonprofit designed to get girls interested in science and math careers got a fantastic new website design, thanks to the creative minds at JVF Consulting.

JVF, a website design company, created a brand-new website with a clean layout, clear content and easy navigation. The new website streamlines the process for girls to sign up for the annual Tri-Valley Expanding Your Horizons conference.

"The fresh look and simple registration process allows for an excellent customer experience while creating more time for conference organizers to concentrate on creating the very best conference experience possible," JVF president Jason Franco explained. "Whether they are new to the organization and exploring workshop features or returning to complete their registration or obtain directions, each experience is a smooth and positive one."

The website makes it easy for supporters of the event to make online donations, volunteer their time and talents or easily share the program with other people. The user-friendly website can be easily maintained by the nonprofit's employees without the need for any technical expertise.
