Skokie, IL (PRWEB) July 27, 2017
Earlier this spring, NAPCO was named one of “Chicago’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For” by the National Association For Business Resources (NABR). This is a highly desirable commendation as it is awarded to only 101 Chicago-area businesses each year. The award is given out to companies that have shown a significant commitment to improving human resources and customer service operations.
The selection process was highly competitive and consisted of several stages. First, each of the 101 companies were separated into small, medium, and large businesses according to the number of people employed at each business (1-100, 101-300, and 301+ respectively). They were then evaluated by an independent research firm based on company standards in many different areas including; engagement and retention, employee education and development, compensation, recruitment, benefits and employee solutions, engagement, and employee enrichment. Only then were the top 101 companies selected to receive this award.
NAPCO was overjoyed to be able to attend the educational luncheon and awards ceremony as one of the 101 businesses that were selected. Dani Nichols, Vice President, Ricardo Alanis, Shipping & Receiving, Trina Benford, Customer Service, and Steve Coven, President, were all in attendance. In addition to the presentation of the awards, the program included many networking opportunities as well as community activities, an address by the NABR President and CEO Jennifer Kluge, and an educational panel discussion on best practices led by the Chicago Advisory Board.
“It was such an amazing opportunity to attend this presentation by the National Association of Business Resources,” said Steve Coven, Owner and Creative Director at NAPCO. “The educational opportunities were really a once-in-a-lifetime experience and the fact that we were able to be there because of our unwavering dedication to customer service improvement means the world to all of us.”
To go along with the networking and other educational sessions, the program also included two professional seminars. The first was called “Emotionally Intelligent Leadership: The Moral Imperative for Growth and Innovation in the Digital Age” and outlined the reasons why pervasive EQ leadership is so relevant, as through this leadership innovative company culture can be sustained and companies can transform into leaders in their fields. The second presentation was “Cascade Engineering’s Trailblazing Recruiting Programs: Welfare to Career and Returning Citizens” and addressed how companies can make a positive impact in their communities.
NAPCO is proud to have been able to attend this event and be recognized for the outstanding work they do each and every day. NAPCO is always on the lookout for new ways to learn and grow their business practices to continue to provide the best possible customer service for their clients.

Sales and marketing solution provider, Lead Liaison, distills how marketing automation can help educational institutions reach their goals without breaking the bank.
Allen, TX (PRWEB) July 27, 2017
Lead Liaison, a software company that specializes in providing marketing and sales solutions, released a collection of resources for educational institutions this week. Their Education Kit includes an overview of marketing in the education sector, a checklist of how to apply marketing automation specifically to educational institutions, various case studies, and more.
“We already know that we’ve got a powerful solution, but the problem that a lot of people run into is how to apply it,” says Jen Worsham, Director of Client Relations at Lead Liaison. “Marketing for higher education can be difficult, but it shouldn't be. We want to show, based on in depth research and real-life case studies, that marketing automation can help increase student retention, accelerate new student enrollment, and streamline communication.”
Lead Liaison’s Education Kit encourages educational institutions to evoke emotion with their audience by telling compelling stories and using a consistent theme across omni-channel marketing efforts - both online and offline.
The kit breaks down which of Lead Liaison’s features solve problems that are commonly found in marketing for higher education. Automation, for example, can improve response time and increase operating efficiency. Personalized website content tailors website visitors’ experience, making it unique to each student. Lead Liaison supports omni-channel marketing, including email, social media, text messages, postcards, and even handwritten letters, which helps build emotional ties between the audience and the university. They assist in overcoming budget issues by tracking Campaign ROI. Using ROI data can justify more budget, or assist in finding where to cut back by assessing the methods that have not been successful.
Florida International University uses Lead Liaison on a daily basis. They wanted to have more meaningful and relevant conversations with their students and prospective students. Features like Lead Liaison’s database segmentation, social append, Salesforce integration, and even onsite training, helped FIU accomplish these goals. Now, they are able to speak to prospective students the way that they want to be spoken to. “Lead Liaison has made our experience so much more efficient and enjoyable. We are now able to quickly create high impact messages with the email builder, we can assess email campaign performance, and even analyze real time insight into Prospect activity,” says Eva Marie Gasson, Assistant Director of Communications at FIU.
Lead Liaison also proves, with this Education Kit, that marketing automation isn’t just for prospective students. Educational institutions can communicate with alumni or faculty in the same way they automate other communications to prospective students. Advisors or Success Coaches can use the platform to coordinate and track university mentor programs. The opportunities are truly endless with a platform as powerful as Lead Liaison.

The Website Says Healthy Paws is the Best Dog Insurance Provider For 2017
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 27, 2017
Canine Journal, a lifestyle site known for being the authority on “all things dog,” has performed their 2017 audit of pet insurance companies, and ranked Healthy Paws Pet Insurance as the “Best Dog Insurance” provider. The site singled out Healthy Paws for featuring reimbursements of up to 90% of veterinary costs with no annual or lifetime caps on payouts, great customer service, and reasonable premium prices.
Canine Journal performs in-depth research to evaluate companies, including combing through user reviews, customer feedback and social media mentions and comments. They found Healthy Paws ranked high on customer service, affordability, easy-to-understand plan coverage and unlimited annual and lifetime payouts. Canine Journal explains that Healthy Paws edged out the competition when they factored in that every free pet insurance quote results in a donation toward a homeless pet’s medical care.
"Our review of the industry this year demonstrated that Healthy Paws currently offers the best pet insurance policy with unlimited lifetime benefits and paperless claims,” says Michelle Schenker of CanineJournal.com. “Plus, they have an annual deductible rather than a per condition deductible, which means increased claim payouts if the pet has multiple conditions during the year.”
“Canine Journal has been a key partner in spreading the good news about Healthy Paws,” says Rob Jackson, CEO of Healthy Paws Pet Insurance. “Our passion for dogs and cats drives us to wow pet parents every day with extraordinary service, an easy-to-use app and delivery on our promises. To be recognized for it feels pretty great!”
To see how Healthy Paws stacks up against other pet insurance providers, check out Canine Journal’s comparison reviews for 2017 and get the company’s ranking and scores for policy, customer service, claim payments and more.

Global manufacturer of combustion and environmental equipment Zeeco, Inc., announced the launch of a significant new system for real-time industrial flare monitoring. The FlareGuardian™ direct, remote flare monitoring system meets key U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements for ensuring industrial flares such as those used in the process industries meet mandated emission standards and operate as efficiently as possible.
Broken Arrow, OK (PRWEB) July 27, 2017
Global manufacturer of combustion and environmental equipment Zeeco, Inc., announced the launch of a new system for real-time industrial flare monitoring. The FlareGuardian™ direct, remote flare monitoring system meets key U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements for ensuring flares such as those used in a typical petroleum refinery meet mandated emission standards and operate as efficiently as possible.
“The industry has long recognized the known shortcomings of indirect flare monitoring methods, and that knowledge, combined with the new EPA standards and a compliance deadline of January 2019 drove the development of a new flare combustion efficiency (CE) measurement and monitoring meth-od,” said Brian Duck, Global Business Manager – Flare Systems at Zeeco, Inc. “This technology can be used to directly, autonomously, and continuously measure CE and smoke levels in real time,” Duck said, “It’s a significant improvement over other methods available.”
This new method for flare monitoring has been proven accurate through a series of large-scale valida-tion tests. The technology, known as Video Imaging Spectro-Radiometry (VISR), is an advanced multi-spectral Infrared (IR) imager that directly and remotely monitors flare performance. In addition to the measurement of CE, VISR also measures and reports the level of smoke in the flare flame regardless of day or night to provide the flare operator with a real-time tool to optimize flare performance, resulting in less assist fuel consumption, more efficient combustion, and lower overall flare emissions.
“Unlike other emission sources, combustion in an industrial flare occurs in open air, so it does not allow for a practical method to directly monitor post-combustion flare emissions,” said Darton Zink, President and CEO of Zeeco, Inc. “To create a practical method for highly accurate, real-time monitoring, Zeeco, Inc. developed FlareGuardian, a patented direct flare monitoring system using VISR technology,” Zink said.
Previously, flare operators have been limited to indirect flare monitoring options including Gas Chromatograph (GC), calorimeters, flare gas flow meters and monitoring, and steam / air controls. Now, the maintenance and calibration-free ZEECO® FlareGuardian offers an alternative direct monitoring system that eliminates the ongoing maintenance and operational costs inherent to indirect monitoring methods and can be installed while the flare is in-service.
Cost savings vary depending on the current indirect monitoring method employed, but in many cases operators can save more than 50% of the capital, operation, and maintenance costs over the life of the equipment.
About Zeeco, Inc.
Zeeco is a privately held company founded in 1979 and is a recognized worldwide leader in combustion and environmental solutions. Zeeco designs and manufactures industrial combustion and pollution con-trol technologies for the refining, petrochemical, production, power, and pharmaceutical industries. Zeeco’s product lines include ultra-low emission burners, gas and liquid flaring systems, vapor control and recovery systems, and hazardous waste incineration. Zeeco’s corporate headquarters cover more than 250 acres near Tulsa, OK, in a modern debt-free facility that includes a 100,000 square-foot (9,290 m2) manufacturing facility and one of the industry’s largest ISO certified combustion research and test-ing facilities. Zeeco has more than 20 global offices and manufactures equipment on multiple conti-nents. More information is available on our website: zeeco.com

LOUISVILLE, KY (PRWEB) July 28, 2017
David Kepron, Vice President of Global Design Strategies for Marriott International, will share his insights on the pervasiveness of digital media and how its integration to consumers' lives is influencing the structure of their brains as well as the physical environment. Kepron will be the closing keynote speaker at the upcoming CONNECT: The Mobile CX Summit.
The event, taking place August 21-23 in Philadelphia, will explore the many opportunities that retailers, restaurants and other B2C enterprises have for leveraging mobile and digital channels to build brands, increase sales and improve customer engagement, experience and loyalty.
Kepron's session, entitled "Mobile, Minds and Merchandise" and sponsored by Brandify, will speak to how digital place-based media, handheld devices and emerging technologies are changing the way retailers, restaurateurs, hoteliers and myriad other businesses need to communicate with their customers.
As Kepron notes, millennials are all the focus of many businesses, and there is a generation of emerging guests for whom expectations about how brand experiences should unfold are changing the paradigm of what a branded experience will be in a digitally mediated future.
The session will also address why the evolution of digital technologies will promote a move in the creation of experience from the hands of the designer to those of the consumer enabled with mobile digital devices.
In his vice president role, Kepron's focus is on the creation of compelling customer experiences within a unique group of Marriott brands called the “Distinctive Premium Brands,” including: Renaissance, Westin, Le Meridien, Autograph Collection, Tribute Portfolio and Design Hotels.
Kepron, with 20 years of retail design expertise in making meaningful customer connections at hotel properties around the globe, takes a multidisciplinary approach to design, focusing on understanding consumer behavior and the creation of relevant brand experiences at the intersection of architecture, sociology, neuroscience and emerging digital technologies.
For Kepron, the primary function of all customer experience design is to weave the customer's innate physical and emotional responses to the environment with the brand story making remarkable moments that foster lasting connections. He published his first book, "Retail (r)Evolution: Why Creating Right-Brain Stores Will Shape the Future of Shopping in a Digitally Driven World," in 2014. He also writes a blog called “Brain Food,” which is published monthly on vmsd.com.
Don't miss the opportunity to learn from one of the top retail customer experience experts, as well as a long list of other leaders, at this year's CONNECT: The Mobile CX Summit. Check out the agenda here and register here.

WebCroppers, a local digital marketing agency, is looking to arm small businesses with helpful tips that will cut costs so they can succeed.
(PRWEB) July 28, 2017
Many businesses simply don’t have the money to spend on a full-time develop, and that’s okay according to the spokesman for WebCroppers, Eugene Feinman. “What a business needs most is a solid website to start them off and simple maintenance until they make enough money to hire on a full-time developer,” added Feinman.
Companies are making it easier and easier for people that don’t know anything about code to build, design, and maintain their website with basic drag and drop tools that have now become a staple in the industry.
Companies like GoDaddy and WordPress are two of the leaders in this market, allowing people to choose templates that suit their needs. These templates require only minor tweaks, such as changing an image, adding written content, and changing the color of the design. The result is something that feels completely unique.
WebCroppers, a marketing company that prides itself on providing new businesses with free marketing and design information has come up with some resources that businesses can use in place of a developer on their staff.
Feinman stated, “WebCroppers is built on a team that started from nothing and worked its way to the top. We want businesses to have the same opportunity but to get anywhere, they need a website that looks nice, operates effectively, and gives a great user-experience. We wanted to provide people some of the best CMS sites to build a website for free or at least inexpensively.”
WordPress- Having one of the most extensive lists of themes, templates, and plugins, this is a great place to start. If your templates lack something, you might simply be able to add a compatible plugin to remedy the situation.
Druple 8- Drupal is a powerful platform for designing ecommerce websites. You can both add or modify a custom Drupal template in no time.
Joomla – Create crisp, modern-looking websites in a matter of minutes. Even some famous companies like Nintendo have outsourced their website development for various counties with a simple Joomla setup.
Shopify – If you’re in the ecommerce business then this is definitely the platform to get started on. This CMS will allow people to quickly setup shop, literally.
GoDaddy – Offering a decent server in which to host a business’s website, Godaddy makes creating a website simple and fun.
For more advice and tips on building a website, contact the experts at WebCroppers for more information.

Charleston, SC (PRWEB) July 28, 2017
Charleston-based Ceterus announced recently that they are doubling their office space, expanding into the second floor of their current headquarters at 804 Meeting Street in the North Morrison tech district.

Levi Morehouse, Ceterus Founder and CEO said, “We’re excited to expand in a great space and to be part of the awesome things happening in this neighborhood.” Morehouse continues, “The addition provides much needed capacity today with room to support future growth.”
The renovated second story space was designed by RavenCliff Company, the property developer. The space features beautiful windows, a living garden wall, a spacious kitchen area complete with art done by local Charleston artists, and will be outfitted with standing desks for Ceterus team members.
“We love the Charleston technology community, and we’re happy that now we have more space to host events and happy hours for others in the industry,” Morehouse said.

“First Appointments” closes the gap between insight and action by setting appointments for agents with the people in their network most likely to sell.
DURHAM, NC (PRWEB) July 28, 2017
First, the company that uses data science and artificial intelligence to help real estate agents win more listings from their personal networks, has launched “First Appointments,” a service that sets up meetings on behalf of agents with the people First identifies as most likely to sell. Appointments is currently in beta and will be available to all First customers later this summer.
“This solution combines cutting edge data science with the time-tested practice of leveraging appointments to win business,” said Mike Schneider, First’s CEO. “We light up an agent’s network or sphere to spot the people most likely to sell, then book appointments - a call, a coffee, a drop-in - so our agents proactively connect with their most important contacts. We’re focusing the agent’s time and attention so they can grow their business faster - it’s that simple.”
First believes that an agent’s greatest asset is their relationships - the contacts, sphere or network unique to them. Unlike companies that apply “predictive analytics” to blast marketing across geographies - ZIP codes, neighborhoods, etc - First monitors relationships an agent has cultivated, then uses artificial intelligence to give the agent a 6 to 9-month jump on the competition for their listings. First’s software makes it easy for agents to upload, augment and manage their contacts.
With “First Appointments,” real estate professionals are freed from the hassle of outreach and scheduling. After syncing their contacts with First and indicating scheduling preferences, First prioritizes their relationships by Seller Score, type of connection, price point, and other factors. Agents simply approve recommended meetings, and know their Appointments are optimized for listing acquisition.
Continues Schneider, “We exist to help good real estate professionals win more business by focusing their efforts on the right people. Adding the Appointments service to our already proven technology so our customers can act immediately on new opportunities was a natural progression of our mission.”
More information on First Appointments can be found at first.io/appointments.
First, http://www.first.io, is a Durham, North Carolina-based startup founded in 2016, combines people and data science to help real estate professionals get more transactions from the relationships they’ve built and avoid the pain of missing opportunities in their personal sphere. First was a finalist at the 2016 Realogy FWD Innovation Summit.

A Safer Environment for Consumers on the Horizon?
New York, NY (PRWEB) July 28, 2017
The Evolution of Debt Relief
The debt relief industry has been rife with challenges over the years. Consumers in financial distress are often faced with limited choices to engage and address their debt problems. Oftentimes bankruptcy becomes their only option to effectively eliminate the stress that is caused by ballooning consumer debts. In the early 2000s, unsecured consumer debt was rising and consumers were finding themselves facing significant financial strain. Financial stress has long been attributed to marital problems, self esteem challenges, depression, despair and have been linked to physiological problems as those stresses take a physical toll on the human’s overall health and well being. The connection between stress and increased mortality rates has been a hot topic in the health and wellness industry and research is substantiating a tangible link between financial stress and increased mortality.
Consumers finding themselves in financial despair due to unmanageable levels of debt have been limited in the options available to address the situation and find relief. At that time, options for debt relief were limited to consumer credit counseling, strategic pay-down methodologies, bankruptcy or simply continuing to pay down the debts using their available means over extended periods of time.
In that vacuum and the need for creative solutions, debt negotiations and settlement was presented to the marketplace. Debt negotiations is a service whereby an experienced negotiator will engage the creditors to present the hardship on behalf of the indebted consumer and present offers to satisfy the debt at a reduced amount generally in a lump sum. Consumers are often encouraged to use their discretionary revenue to create a strategic savings account dedicated to fund the settlement when the negotiations were accepted. In some cases, term settlements were accepted where the consumer could make payments over an extended period to fund the settlement. This option quickly became a popular bankruptcy alternative for consumers finding themselves in financial trouble.
In exchange for this service, fees were paid to the negotiations firm, generally in the form of advance fees. These fees could range from a couple thousand dollars to more than five thousand dollars depending on the amount of the debts owed and the savings the client realized in the process. It wasn’t long before entrepreneurs migrated into the market in droves looking to cash in on this fast-growing industry. Trade groups were established for the industry in the form of USOBA (The United States Organization for Bankruptcy Alternatives), which split into a competing organization called TASC (The Association of Settlement Companies) that also capitalized on the boom. These organizations attempted to create viable self-regulation protocols to govern the businesses and establish best practices. Unfortunately, the organizations were unable to reign in the deceptive practices of many of the firms operating this type of business and the government stepped in to protect the consumers from the rogue behaviors of many companies offering the services.
Inability to Self Regulate
The reality is that by their nature, pay for membership organizations are difficult to self-regulate because of the nature of the business model. When the fees that a company pay are needed to keep the organization afloat or are extracted as a primary revenue system, regulating the members becomes more difficult. If a member deviates from regulated protocols and refuses to be reined in to best practices, the organization should remove that member from its ranks until the member company comes into alignment with the standards set forth by the organization. If the organization relies on that revenue to survive, the decision to do the right thing is compromised. Remove the members, lose the revenue. This system is designed to fail when it comes to self-regulation unless the monetary necessity is removed. Trade associations can be very effective if utilized properly, but best practices need to be established, measured, monitored and enforced. Consumers are becoming very cynical and wary of any icon, symbol, affiliation or branding that implicates credibility. The credibility needs to be real. Many consumers are even becoming wary of recognized credibility tools like the BBB because companies can often pay for accreditation and so long as they respond to consumer complaints, they can maintain their rating.
Over the last decade, industry-wide bad practices have been met with staunch and unrelenting pressure of regulatory enforcement actions by the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) and CFPB (Consumer Financial Protection Bureau). These regulating bodies are more able than ever to identify trends and patterns involving companies using deceptive practices in their marketing and open the door to more thorough examination, often leading to a “house of cards” effect. When a debt relief provider, knowingly or unknowingly, violates standards within the framework of the law, the regulating bodies engage. If they are found in violation of any one of the multitude of laws that govern the financial services arena, law enforcement initiatives are taken. Most times, these companies were not operating correctly, failed to provide the services or deceived consumers with their marketing. Oftentimes, its not the service that is the problem, it’s the consumers lack of understanding of the service they are engaging that lands the companies in hot water. Marketing is a hot topic in every industry but the FTC and CFPB have made no bones about it, the net impression the consumer has about the service based on the marketing and sales pitch used will supersede any “fine print” the company uses in their contracts. If a company hinders the ability of the consumer to make a reasonable decision based on the materials presented, and actual harm occurs, that company is likely in violation of the UDAAP rules (Unfair Deceptive Abusive Acts and Practices).
When a debt relief company engages in deceptive behavior for the sake of monetary gains, the public perception is damaged. When the public perception believes the service itself is a scam, legitimate operators are forced into more aggressive marketing strategies to obtain new clients and the cost per acquisition increases, often needing to be offset by higher fees, limiting the options for the consumers even further. This entire system completely degrades the number of perceived viable debt relief options to the consumers that may benefit from the strategy. The real challenges appear to be in the inability for the industry to unite under one banner. If the compliant, consumer focused firms were to act as a shield for the consumers, helping to root out the bad actors and demonstrate meaningful self-regulation activities, there could be light at the end of the tunnel for the industry. Unfortunately, there are still many companies in that industry that simply don’t have the consumer’s best interests at heart and many that are an outright scam. When the FTC or CFPB shuts down these companies, there are oftentimes hundreds if not thousands of consumers that are hung out to dry.
Until the debt relief industry engages each other, unifies under one set of acceptable standards and embraces self-regulation, the problems will likely persist, further limiting consumer’s options for their debt challenges. Leaders in the debt relief industry appear to be rallying around an event in September of this year that is attempting to change the way the industry operates. The evolution is much needed and appears that the event is trending in the industry. This major event is set to be held in Las Vegas under the name Revolution 2017 (or Revcon2017 as they are coining it), using hashtags such as #changeiscoming and #wearetheindustry on social media. Based on the event website, Fintech innovations, regulatory presentations, compliance, ethics and consumer outreach seem to be on the menu. One thing seems apparent, the industry itself wants change and it looks like they are making strides to get there. The event appears to finale into a celebrity charity poker fundraiser for a nonprofit that helps families that have suffered trauma, tragedy and loss. If this industry can ever unite, self-regulate and create a safe marketplace for consumers, the entire economy will be changed for the better.
Quoting Matthew Hearn, industry veteran, compliance expert and pioneer of the Revcon2017 Event, “It is time for change. It is time to advance into the mainstream and create a safe, reliable marketplace for consumers facing financial difficulty. It is time for new innovations to streamline the processes and new synergies to ease the pinch-points for consumers involved in these programs. The regulation must come from within the industry. Self regulation is very possible, and necessary. You cannot perceive a new future with old eyes. We must change the way we think and engage. These consumers are no different than our own families. We need to step up our game substantially."
Bill Jones, CEO of Datapult Marketing added, : "Household debt is reaching the record highs of 2008, but the industry's marketing needs to perform at 2017 levels. We intend to revolutionize the industry's marketing strategies with better data, to reach the right audience, with the right message at the right time. Fortune 500 companies are using emerging technologies and advanced data analytics to increase their ROI. This industry is about to meet that tech at Revcon2017 and it's about time." Along with emerging technologies being unveiled at Revcon2017, service providers are also innovating their offerings to better round out the debt relief offerings. “If you’re in the debt settlement or management industry, and you don’t have a solution on helping your clients with their credit, then you’re really doing them an injustice", says Ryan Duncan, owner of Dispute Services, a pay for performance credit restoration firm and showcase company. He continues, "We're unveiling a few innovations of our own, but we won't reveal anything until the event. This industry is about to get a major upgrade on all levels". Chris Queen of Debt Pay Gateway added, "We have been creating and utilizing advanced audit and on boarding programs to ensure a safe network using our banking platform. If even one bad actor gets into your network, they can be a huge liability to the entire group. It is all about creating compliant, cooperative, consumer focused networks. DPG is always at the forefront of this vision and we couldn't be more excited to be a part of the leadership team at Revcon2017. We are ready to partner together to usher in a new future in this space."
"The debt relief industry is always changing and evolving and certainly is growing. There has been a lot of progress made by the industry veterans and even within our own company, Veritas Legal Plan. We welcome the opportunity to align ourselves with industry leaders who shares the same vision and passion - a primary focus on helping the consumer." stated Angelo Anzalone of VLP, a legal insurance provider for consumers enrolled in debt relief programs. "Growing up, my mother would say to me, "Tell me who your friends are and I'll tell you who you are". We are proud to be a part of a community that comes together to encourage fairness, trust, compliance, advocacy and transparency and anyone who knows Matt Hearn, knows that's what he's all about. Over the years, Matt and MSTARS has shown a strong desire to forge alliances and create cooperative synergies with those with the same mindset and we look forward to continuing to collaborate to make this industry even better. Whether you operate an exemption model or performance model, settlement, student loan relief, or any area of debt relief, you need to know the rules and how to limit your liabilities from all sides. With the CFPB and FTC aggressively going after companies they feel are misleading or harming consumers, it is imperative to have the compliance tools necessary to survive. Anyone with the mindset of longevity should attend. The Evolution2011 event they held was the event that changed everything for us and really birthed our business. When I heard they were launching Revcon2017, I sponsored immediately. I'm honored to be a part of this initiative.You really have seen nothing like this before. It will change everything for you and your business." Veritas is one of the key sponsors of the event.
With speakers like Harvard PhD Dr. Larry Taylor, a media psychologist who will be presenting on how to use today's emerging technologies to create cross vertical marketing and create meaningful conversations with potential clients to Jason Drees, a world renowned Tony Robbins executive business coach turned ultra-successful BPO expert who will show companies how to properly leverage outsourcing and offshoring technologies to streamline and grow the operation, this event is certainly turning heads.
Other speakers include Tim Li, also a Harvard PhD and one of the most successful Fintech pioneers in the field. Creating financial technologies like Kuber, MaxDecisions,RocketLoans, RealtyMogul, Kabbage, LoanDepot, Mosaic, Blinker, Think Finance and advising firms like JPMorgan Chase, he will be presenting on integrating Fintech tools into a business to increase conversion, simplicity and streamlining the operation with automation.
Also contributing to the event will be Stephanie Rosenthal, Chief of Staff with the FTC who will present on behalf of the FTC. There will be a panel of the top regulatory defense attorneys, like Michael Thurman of Thurman Legal, helping companies pioneer solid compliance management plans and keep those companies in a solid compliance position. A creditor and collections panel will be presenting on creating efficiencies, synergies and best practices for negotiations and will be looking to create synergies with companies willing to work towards cooperative concepts. There will also be 2 surprise speakers that are sure to drop jaws and a thought leadership piece by James Lanctot that will lead to perhaps the most monumental evolution this industry has ever seen. His research spans decades and could literally reshape the entire industry. This is an event that should NOT be missed.
Revcon2017 involves every single verticals involved in the debt relief and financial services space. The changes taking place will literally impact every type of firm. From tax resolution, corporate debt resolution, debt settlement back ends, marketing affiliates and front ends, credit repair, student loan debt relief, debt management, credit counseling and more. The latest trends in Student Loan Debt Relief are really disturbing and there are some things happening in that vertical that no one is talking about. The DOE is developing a portal that could eliminate the entire vertical overnight. That is definitely worth talking about. The addition of new verbiage on the DOE NSLDS system interface should also serve a warning sign that change is coming. Student loan relief firms should be talking about this and making preparations. Revcon2017 will be talking about this and will be providing the solutions the industry needs to navigate successfully. There are a lot of student loan relief companies that are operating completely out of compliance and many, in fact, are breaking the laws believing they are compliant. Calling the company a "Document Preparation" firm does not make it so. Read the details of the CFPB and FTC lawsuits against players in that business and you will quickly find out that they are likely operating a debt relief service afoul of the TSR Amendment. If the company interacts in ANY way as an intermediary between the student and the DOE, they are providing a debt relief service, plain and simple and must comply with the TSR Amendment. How residual streams are collected for continuing services like re-certification on income sensitive plans should also be addressed and evaluated against the current laws. If a company is collecting fees via credit card, they are likely breaking the laws. Every company operating in this vertical should attend this event. It very well could save their lives. Increasing ROI, lowering CPA, integrating technologies to drive improvement, better marketing strategy using big data, compliance guidance, new synergies, increasing operational efficiencies and leveraging future forward tech? Add sound, lights and staging by award winning Eden Audio and a few incredible thought leaders to inspire the industry forward and this is shaping up to be one amazing event!
The world is watching and the industry leaders are determined to change the way this industry operates. The consumers have seen enough carnage at the hands of unscrupulous actors in this and other financial service industries. Until that time, however, buyer beware. Consumers must do their due diligence and research everything. Consumers should not be sold into a pie in the sky “program” in exchange for an exorbitant fee. When personal finances are at stake, they must be cautious or they may find themselves in hot water or even worse, completely scammed. The superheroes are out there and are uniting at Revcon2017. They will make a way forward and shape the future. One thing is certain, however, CHANGE IS COMING.

California-based BBQ & Grill adds xtraCHEF to complete streamlining their entire AP operation
New York, NY (PRWEB) July 28, 2017
Wood Ranch Grill chooses xtraCHEF, an automated invoice processing and cost intelligence platform, to streamline processing of invoice data across all 16 of their locations. While Wood Ranch leverages EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) with several of their vendors, they were still required to manually process approximately 25% of their invoice volume.
“xtraCHEF was the right fit to make the complete transition to invoice automation,” said Jean-Pierre Mouren-Laurens, Controller at Wood Ranch Grill. “We had already implemented an electronic invoice data interface with our large food and alcohol vendors; however, we struggled to manage the remaining vendors who lack those capabilities. It was clear we had a higher error rate and less efficiency with manually processed invoices. xtraCHEF provides us with the ability to bridge that gap, eliminate data entry errors, and shorten processing time. In addition, we were happy with the seamless onboarding process and continue to be pleased with their responsiveness and user support.”
xtraCHEF will integrate the invoice data into Compeat, Wood Ranch’s Restaurant Management Software, for a seamless accounts payable workflow. In addition to streamlining the process of capturing and accessing header-level and line-item detail from the vendor invoices in a timely manner, xtraCHEF enables Wood Ranch BBQ & Grill to gain visibility into how they are spending across all locations ultimately leading to better management of each restaurant’s food costs.
“We recognized that Wood Ranch Grill was extremely streamlined in their operations, and that our system would take it one step further, eliminating the entire manual data entry process for the remainder of their paper invoices,” said Dayna Barringer, Director of Sales at xtraCHEF. “Wood Ranch Grill recognizes the need to use technology to make their operations more seamless, and this makes them a perfect client to work with.
With features such as invoice approval workflows, price tracking, recurring COGS reporting, and integrations to accounting and inventory management integrations, xtraCHEF provides restaurants cost intelligence to make more informed spending decisions.
xtraCHEF is a cloud-based invoice processing application to help the hospitality industry better manage costs. You simply take a picture of your invoices with our mobile app (or scan and upload) and xtraCHEF digitizes the entire invoice, extracts line-item detail, and imports the data directly into your Accounting or Inventory Management System. We then provide a number of cost intelligence features, including COGS reporting and analytics that allow you to keep your food costs low and your quality of service high across one or more locations.
About Wood Ranch Grill & BBQ:
In 1992, Wood Ranch BBQ & Grill opened in Moorpark, CA. The restaurant, relatively small by today’s standards, became a great success in serving a community starving for good food and someplace to relax. Today, there are 16 Wood Ranch restaurants serving Southern California. Wood Ranch's award-winning restaurants feature “The Food That Makes America Great!®” – a menu of high-quality, savory signature dishes such as: Premium American Babyback Pork Ribs, Certified Angus Beef® steaks and burgers, USDA Choice tri-tip roasts, fresh fish, chicken, and a nationally-recognized Kids’ Menu. Wood Ranch also offers a broad selection of innovative, healthy, and beautifully presented salads, appetizers, and homemade desserts, as well as full bar service.
