    Findify delivers personalized Search, Recommendations and Category Navigation - powered by advanced machine learning, increasing revenue by up to 30%

    Stockholm, Sweden. (PRWEB) July 05, 2017

    Findify, the ground-breaking startup built around A.I. as an engine for eCommerce growth, is thrilled to announce a milestone moment with Shopify Plus. Formal announcement made at the 13th annual Internet Retailers Conference and Exhibition (IRCE) - the world’s largest and most well-known eCommerce event.

    Shopify Plus is helping shape the the future of commerce by providing a centralized commerce platform that enables the creation, disruption and innovation of today’s modern, high-growth and high-volume merchant. Findify is the only search solution that can scale - as easily and as seamlessly - to keep up with the break-neck speed of the modern digital marketplace. “We are witnessing a massive shift in e‐commerce, with more and more businesses investing in effective search and discovery solutions as a critical part of a successful digital strategy,” notes David Dahlgren, Findify’s COO.

    Chipping away at poor conversion rates starts at a business’s most valuable touchpoint - the moment of intent. Unfortunately, tons of smart, fast-growing businesses still rely on archaic keyword matching to power their search.

    According to Findify CEO Meni Morim, “it isn’t enough.”

    Today’s online consumers have been trained to expect - by e‐commerce giants like Amazon - features like predictive search and personalized recommendations. Until now, merchants either had to pay large sums of money for complicated solutions, hire dedicated development teams to build it themselves, or patch something together by integrating a number of piecemeal solutions.

    Findify offer all three - Self‐learning Search, Personalized Recommendations, and Smart Collections - in one seamless integration. Now, merchants can leverage their own customer data through Findify to meet those consumer expectations on the fully hosted Shopify Plus platform.

    • Fast growing e‐tailers can finally compete against the likes of Amazon and Google with one seamless integration
    • Findify’s advanced, A.I. based personalization core powers the entire platform.
    • Findify’s technology has resulted in a 27% average uplift in conversion rate, and 30% uplift in revenue per user.

    “Retailers large and small understand the need to drastically improve their search and discovery solutions by leveraging new technologies to improve customer experience,” Findify’s co-founder and CTO Thibaut Patel says, “and Findify is well-positioned to take advantage of this shift.”

    “We are thrilled to welcome Findify to the Shopify Plus Technology Partner Program. This program recognizes the best‐in‐class solutions that - together with Shopify Plus - further enables the rapid growth and innovation possibilities of today’s modern merchant,” notes Jamie Sutton, Head of Technology Partnerships for Shopify Plus.

Findify’s breakthrough technology has aggregated data across more than 1,000 stores in over 50 countries. Unparalleled, 1:1 personalization results in an average 30% increase in revenue per user (with 95% confidence).

    TrendSource’s 2017 Grocery Industry Report challenges some strongly-held assumptions about grocery shopping in general, online shopping in particular, and the ways that grocers should optimize both experiences.

    San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 06, 2017

    TrendSorces 2017 Grocery Industry Report shows, despite popular opinions to the contrary, millennials, according to the study, do not disproportionately grocery shop online relative to other generations: Millennials, Generation X, and Baby Boomers all shop online for groceries at roughly the same rate, somewhere between 21% and 26%. Though analysts and industry experts often blame millennials for the present and future decline of brick-and-mortar grocery, TrendSource’s data suggests this simplistic approach ignores adoption in older generations.

    The report also considers not just who is shopping online but how they are going about doing it. Among survey respondents 54% use the search bar as a primary or secondary means to locate items, and 47% use their order history to repeat previous orders. While this seems like common sense, it sheds light on an under-reported fact of online grocery shopping: it severely limits browsing. Within brick-and-mortar stores shoppers must move from aisle to aisle, item to item, allowing grocers to tactically deploy impulse items, similar products, and attention-grabbing displays throughout the store. The same is not true online where grocers can’t force shoppers to browse.

    One way for grocers to potentially cut through the noise online then could be through promotions on featured items and sales. Almost half of online shoppers (48%) indicated that they peruse featured items/sales items as a primary or secondary means of online shopping, while only 18% said the same about product recommendations. Of course, sales are just recommendations at a friendlier price point, but survey respondents obviously know the difference.

    The full report also touches on an array of other topics including a breakdown of four shopper archetypes—bulk bin shoppers, ethnic aisle shoppers, meal kit users, and vegetarians—and gets to the heart of some truly complex questions such as how do different generations uniquely approach online grocery shopping, what does in-store customer service mean in today’s grocery market place, and what is the real reason Amazon made a move on Whole Foods? For answers to these and other questions, download the full report.

    With the release of “Spider-Man: Homecoming” July 7, New York Film Academy goes behind the scenes with Marvel Studios in-house digital compositor, former “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” VFX artist and NYFA alumnus Francesco Panzieri.

    New York, New York (PRWEB) July 06, 2017

    “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is the first installment of a new Spider-Man trilogy created through a collaboration between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios. Box Office Pro has projected a box office opening of $135 million, which ScreenRant notes would make this the sixth largest opening out of 16 Marvel films.

    With the release of “Spider-Man: Homecoming” July 7, New York Film Academy (NYFA) goes behind the scenes with Marvel Studios in-house digital compositor, former VFX artist and NYFA 3D animation alumnus Francesco Panzieri.

    Along with a great story, Panzieri points to a new colorspace technology created by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences called ACES (Academy Color Encoding System) as a significant ingredient to the look of “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”

    “It was a cool experience for me to test it for the first time in my career and I look forward to ACES being the soon-to-be-standard on features, episodic and commercials,” says Panzieri.

    Panzieri says that it is Marvel’s passion for storytelling that continues to draw audiences to theaters, and also what motivates the long hours and innovation required to create the gravity-defying effects.

    “I realized the true strength and secret of Marvel Studios that deservedly brought them to be number one in the entertainment industry: the love and energy that they put into each and every production they make. Everyone who works at Marvel is an extremely genuine, passionate and dedicated fellow; it’s a huge, big family where there is a unique synergy between all the roles," states Panzieri.

    Panzieri points to his training at the New York Film Academy as playing a valuable role in preparing him for the transition from film school to major blockbuster productions.

    Panzieri explains that visual effects is art, technology and science at the same time, requiring focus, dedication and good at craftsmanship to keep up with the high quality demands in the industry.

    "The instantaneous hands-on environment I found myself in during my time at NYFA was a true testament to the preparation it takes to work in Hollywood.”

    “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is set to hit theaters July 7, 2017.

    Today marks the Phase 1 launch of 123Genetix, a new non-profit organization created to advance rare disease research and transform the lives of those affected by rare diseases around the globe.

    London, Ontario (PRWEB) July 06, 2017

    123Genetix is introducing its proprietary predictive computer models of rare disease biology to empower medical researchers to discover potential new research directions that may identify disease specific biomarkers that can lead to new and effective treatments for various rare diseases. The company’s advanced deep learning technology will be made available free of charge to not-for-profit researchers and organizations.

    “We passionately believe the time is right for our transformative platform technology and a novel approach to empower rare disease research and improve the lives of families affected by rare diseases,” said Dr. Wayne Danter, Chief Science Officer and founder. “At this time we are looking to create awareness for 123Genetix and our technology solution as we continue to forge relationships with relevant medical researchers and organizations. Our Phase 1 launch includes our website and blog at, as well as the use of Twitter and Facebook. I urge anyone interested in rare disease research to follow our social media accounts. A more formal launch of our not-for-profit technology solution will take place in about three months.”

    The Unmet Need: A rare disease is generally a disease that affects a small percentage of the population. However, rare diseases are more common than you might think. There are more than 7,000 known rare diseases affecting over 300 million people worldwide. That’s almost the size of the population of the United States. In North America, rare diseases affect 8% to 10% of the population. About 80% of rare diseases have a genetic basis and 50% of rare diseases affect children. Unfortunately, less than 50% of known rare diseases have organizations to advocate on behalf of patients and their families. Compounding this ongoing problem is the ever increasing competition for limited and diminishing resources supporting rare diseases research.

    Our Solution: DeepNEU is 123Genetix’s novel systems biology platform capable of evolving complex editable rare disease specific computer models. These models can be individualized by rare disease researchers to: (1) develop new hypotheses; (2) design and run experimental simulations to test those hypotheses; (3) write better grants; and, (4) discover potential biomarkers.

    About 123Genetix

    123Genetix is an innovative non-profit organization created to empower rare disease research. At 123Genetix we believe that rare should not mean forgotten. To empower rare disease research we have created a growing library of computational models of rare diseases. These models are easily customizable by the investigator and have a number of important applications. They are designed for hypothesis generation, research and experimental planning, grant writing and novel targeted therapy identification.

    Howard Center Goes Live with Industry-Leading HR and Payroll Software from DATIS.

    Tampa, Fla. (PRWEB) July 06, 2017

    (July 5, 2017) -- DATIS HR Cloud, a leader in cloud-based HR and payroll software, announced today that Howard Center has officially completed implementation and replaced their HCM systems with the unified e3 software solution. The 150-year-old nonprofit with over 1,500 employees completed their trainings and began running Payroll and HR operations with DATIS earlier this month.

To address these challenges, Howard Center sought a more streamlined and unified solution, selecting the DATIS e3 platform via an RFP process. The cloud-based system is not only transforming Howard Center’s approach to managing HR and payroll, it is also enabling them to focus less on administrative tasks and more on achieving their mission.

    LiveSwitch extends Peer-to-Peer (P2P) audio/video transmission with server based audio/video capabilities for applications that require selective forwarding (SFU), mixing (MCU), recording, broadcasting, and telephony integration. From three participants to three hundred, LiveSwitch makes WebRTC and SIP-compatible multiparty conferencing scalable, efficient and truly cross-platform.

    Surrey, BC (PRWEB) July 06, 2017

    Frozen Mountain Software is pleased to announce the release of LiveSwitch, powered by the multi-award winning IceLink product, which provides flexible server-based selective forwarding, mixing, broadcasting and recording for multiparty audio/video conferencing - all installable on your own infrastructure or in your own cloud.

    LiveSwitch gives you the ability to establish P2P-, SFU-, or MCU-based media flows, as well as switch between flows as desired.

    Mixing audio and video streams from multiple participants into a single stream is easily handled by LiveSwitch acting as a multipoint control unit (MCU). This is useful for conferences with over 3-4 users and especially useful for legacy and resource-constrained devices. The server handles all the mixing automatically, and the output of that stream is delivered to each user in the format their device requires.

    Audio and video can be recorded as individual SFU or mixed MCU streams out to Matroska containers in real-time, and undergo any post-processing required by your application to further mix, modify or archive them.

    LiveSwitch also features full SIP integration to support combining WebRTC conferencing with legacy VoIP and PSTN telephony networks, either directly or via virtual PBX software such as FreeSWITCH.

    "LiveSwitch completes our Internet-based Real Time Communications offerings,” declares Anton Venema, Frozen Mountain’s CTO. "LiveSwitch combines peer-to-peer, selective forwarding, mixing, SIP telephony integration and broadcasting into a single product that can be deployed on your own infrastructure, or in the cloud. Combined with support for all browsers and native platforms, organizations that are implementing iRTC conferencing can use LiveSwitch as a complete solution."

    Pricing for LiveSwitch is based on the number of concurrent streaming participants and is not limited by number of users or audio/video resolution. Get started today with the only product that can easily switch between P2P, SFU and MCU architectures.

    Started in 2008 and having grown to over 300 customers in 47 countries worldwide, Frozen Mountain Software provides cross-platform, licensed Internet Based Real-Time Communication (iRTC) solutions and services that allow organizations to incorporate WebRTC audio/video streaming, selective forwarding, audio/video mixing, screen sharing, call signaling, telephony, broadcasting, text chat, shared whiteboards, browser synchronization and internet pub/sub messaging into their applications.

    Agile Development Is No Longer Just A Software Methodology, But The Route To Become A Digital First Organization

    Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) July 06, 2017

    Belatrix believes that digital transformation cannot be defined just as updating a company’s technology environment, creating a smart new mobile application, or hiring a chief digital officer. Rather it involves a wholesale organization change, and a key part of this change involves implementing Agile development. Implementing Agile means enterprises are better positioned to rapidly create customer value by iteratively developing their products and services. It is no longer just a software methodology, but is rather a key approach for companies to get closer to their customers and respond faster to their demands.

    Belatrix was one of the first companies in Latin America to adopt Agile development, and has helped countless organizations implement and improve their use of the methodology. Recently, Belatrix has witnessed first hand how the methodology plays a crucial role in helping enterprises in their digital transformation initiatives.

    In particular over the past few years Belatrix has gained extensive experience in FinTech, helping financial institutions ease their way into the new FinTech world by creating, developing and deploying digital transformation strategies for them. For example, Belatrix has been working with one of the largest banks in Latin America on their digital transformation. As part of this work, Belatrix helped the bank implement Agile development, first in their innovation center, and then throughout the enterprise.

    Alex Robbio, Belatrix’s President and Co-Founder commented that “organizations that implement Agile quickly see its benefits, with respect to increased transparency, faster development lifecycles, and ability to help teams rapidly create customer value. As organizations face unprecedented pressures to transition to the new digital world, Agile provides a tried-and-tested approach to help them”.

    About Belatrix Software:

    Belatrix Software helps clients achieve the full impact of their R&D capabilities developing high quality, innovative software, QA, testing and mobile solutions that enable clients to generate best-in-class software products, decrease time to market, and gain competitive edge.
