    Five-year collaboration will integrate technology into humanitarian and development assistance programs and reach 11 million people

    Portland, Ore. and San Jose, Calif. (PRWEB) September 20, 2017

    Leading technology company Cisco and global organization Mercy Corps are embarking on a five-year, $10 million initiative to help deliver aid and development assistance faster, better and to more people around the world. Cisco and Mercy Corps plan to impact more than 11 million people through the integration of digital solutions into programs that help people survive through crisis, build better lives and transform their communities for good.

    The humanitarian and development sector faces increasingly complex challenges, such as how to protect sensitive data, ensure privacy and deliver aid in the midst of violent conflict. Organizations also grapple with accurately and securely identifying beneficiaries, assigning goods and services, improving efficiency, tracking distributions and reporting the impact of programs.

    “With 65 million people forced from their homes and 141 million people in need of humanitarian assistance, the aid community is stretched to its limits and faces unprecedented challenges,” says Alan Donald, technology for development director at Mercy Corps. “Technology has the power to transform the way we meet urgent humanitarian needs and scale our solutions to help build stronger communities and have greater impact.”

    Cisco will provide cash grants as well as donate Cisco technology, expertise and advisory services. With the company’s support, Mercy Corps teams working in more than 40 countries will be able to use advanced analytical tools to drive faster and more precise decisions, while helping ensure sensitive data is kept secure and private. Other key initiatives include the design of digital solutions for managing beneficiary information and improving the speed of aid delivery, new information channels for migrant populations to make better-informed decisions, and new solutions to build stronger and more resilient communities. The cash grant portion will be disbursed via Cisco’s donor advised fund at the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.

    “We believe we can apply the same technology and expertise that help our customers succeed to also help solve the world’s most challenging problems,” says Tae Yoo, Cisco senior vice president for corporate affairs. “By leveraging technology-based solutions and partnering with strong, digitally enabled nonprofits like Mercy Corps, companies like Cisco can help positive social change and improve lives of people around the world. Partnering with Mercy Corps is a critical component of our goal to positively impact 1 billion people by 2025.”

    In addition to supporting these solutions, Mercy Corps and Cisco plan to conduct field-based research and test new technology models, sharing learnings and solutions with institutions and organizations across the humanitarian and private sectors to boost collaboration. As a result, Mercy Corps and Cisco hope to have a significant impact on developing and verifying new technology solutions and best practices to address some of the world’s toughest challenges.

    About Mercy Corps

    Mercy Corps is a leading global organization powered by the belief that a better world is possible. In disaster, in hardship, in more than 40 countries around the world, we partner to put bold solutions into action—helping people triumph over adversity and build stronger communities from within.

    PhishLabs reports major phishing attack growth in Q2 2017 Phishing Trends & Intelligence Report

    Charleston, South Carolina (PRWEB) September 20, 2017

    PhishLabs, the leading provider of 24/7 managed security services that protect against phishing attacks, today announced the release of its Phishing Trends & Intelligence Report for the second quarter of 2017. Phishing attack volume was 41 percent higher in the second quarter than it was in the first quarter.

    Additional key findings of the Q2 2017 Phishing Trends & Intelligence Report include:

    • The volume of phishing attacks targeting the financial industry nearly doubled in Q2 and is the largest quarterly volume PhishLabs has ever observed.
    • Nearly 88% of attacks in the second quarter targeted five industries: financial institutions, webmail/online services, payment services, cloud storage/file hosting services, and e-commerce companies.
    • The volume of attacks targeting SaaS platforms increased 104% quarter-over-quarter, doubling the total volume of SaaS platform attacks observed in all of 2016.
    • The volume of attacks targeting social networking sites increased 70% quarter-over-quarter, exceeding the total volume of social networking attacks observed in all of 2016.
    • Phishing attacks targeting cloud storage providers continued to decline in Q2, signaling a clear shift in targets by phishers.
    • The usage of “Secure” phishing sites hosted using SSL certificates is becoming more common, growing from just 1% to 13% of overall phishing volume in the last year.
    • Padding URLs with hyphens to obscure phishing domains in mobile browsers is an emerging tactic that is growing quickly in popularity.

    The full report is available at https://info.phishlabs.com/q2_2017_phishing_trends_and_-intelligence_report.

    “The activity in Q2 shows a thriving and volatile phishing threat landscape,” said PhishLabs VP of Threat Research Joseph Opacki. “Several organizations saw huge swings in how frequently they were targeted in Q2, which is why it’s important to monitor these threats closely and be prepared to take immediate action.”

    The information and analysis contained in the report is sourced directly from the company’s 24/7 operations and technologies used to fight back against phishing attacks. In the second quarter of 2017, PhishLabs analyzed more than 210,100 confirmed malicious phishing sites hosted on more than 61,000 unique domains.

    New Haven, CT (PRWEB) September 20, 2017

    Cybrexa Therapeutics, a start-up cancer therapeutics company, announced today that it has appointed Vishwas Paralkar to the role of chief scientific officer. In this role, Dr. Paralkar will lead the development of Cybrexa’s tumor targeting technology. He will report to Cybrexa’s president and CEO, Per Hellsund.

    The InvoTech Uniform System at the Aria Resort & Casino was upgraded with the latest UHF-RFID technology for the most efficient uniform department operations.

    Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) September 20, 2017

    InvoTech Systems, Inc., the leading provider of linen, laundry and uniform inventory management solutions for hotels, casinos, resorts, and theme parks worldwide, announced that the Aria Resort & Casino has upgraded its existing InvoTech Uniform System with the latest UHF-RFID technology for even more efficient operations. The InvoTech Uniform System at the Aria manages uniforms for approximately 7,500 employees. InvoTech Systems has implemented inventory management systems for hundreds of customers worldwide in more than thirty (30) countries, including over fifty (50) Las Vegas hotels, resorts, and casinos. Please click here for more information on InvoTech's linen, laundry and uniform systems for efficient operations.

    The Aria Resort & Casino has been benefitting from the control and accountability established by the InvoTech Uniform System since it was implemented in 2008 for the property grand opening. The RFID technology upgrade will provide additional cost-saving benefits by further automating manual tasks and record keeping. Specialized waterproof RFID tags are discreetly attached to each uniform piece to replace the RFID tags previously used. The InvoTech Uniform System automatically tracks RFID tagged uniform pieces when issued to employees, and when shipped to and received back from the laundry. The RFID technology allows for multiple uniforms to be processed simultaneously and automatically, and the record keeping is also automated.

    “We’ve already experienced success with our existing InvoTech Uniform System for several years. With today’s rising operating costs, we decided to take our cost-savings one step further by upgrading our InvoTech System with the latest RFID technology. We now know exactly which uniforms were taken from the conveyors by the employees and we now have a portable RFID handheld reader, which we can use for taking a physical inventory and as well as several other functions. The upgrade was fast and easy, and the system is now even more efficient with greater benefits,” said Joel Leano, Uniform Control Manager at Aria Resort & Casino.

    “The InvoTech Uniform System at the Aria Resort & Casino is a Multi-Property System that offers even more cost-saving benefits than a stand-alone system by optimizing the uniform inventory over multiple properties. Inventory reports can be generated for multiple properties together and uniforms can be transferred between properties when needed, instead of purchasing additional uniforms. The system integrates with the property’s automated uniform conveyors to distribute the uniforms to employees and to automatically record which uniforms are taken by employees.”, said Oswald Lares, Director of Sales at InvoTech Systems, Inc.

    InvoTech’s clients include Madison Square Garden, Universal Studios Hollywood and Florida, MGM Resorts International, Ritz Carlton, Hyatt Hotels, Marriott, Hilton Hotels, Loews Hotels, Mandarin Oriental, and the Empire State Building. International clients include LEGOLAND Dubai and Japan, Venetian Macau; MGM Macau; MGM Cotai; Park Hyatt Sydney, Australia; Perth Arena, Australia; Four Seasons Hotel Seoul, Korea; Resorts World Sentosa, Singapore; Systematic Laundry, Singapore; Genting Malaysia; and Palace Resorts and Laundry, Mexico.

    DataON, an industry-leading provider of hyper-converged cluster appliances (HCCA) and optimized storage systems for Windows Server environments, today announces the first commercially available Kepler-47 hyper-converged infrastructure for Windows Server 2016 Storage Spaces Direct.

    Anaheim, California (PRWEB) September 20, 2017

    DataON, an industry-leading provider of hyper-converged cluster appliances (HCCA) and optimized storage systems for Windows Server environments, today announces the first commercially available Kepler-47 hyper-converged infrastructure for Windows Server 2016 Storage Spaces Direct.

    •First Two-Node Hyper-Converged Infrastructure for Remote/Branch Office (ROBO), Edge Computing, and Internet of Things (IoT)

    •Designed for Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V and Storage Spaces Direct

    •Choice of Value-optimized Hybrid and Performance-optimized All-Flash SSD HCI with Enterprise High Availability

    •Low-Cost, High-Speed Networking with Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3 Technology

    •Small Form Factor Hyper-Converged Infrastructure for under $10K

    •Easy to deploy, manage, and backed with Single Point of Support from DataON

    Project Kepler-47 was a proof-of-concept from Microsoft’s Windows Server team that was presented at Microsoft Ignite 2016. The goal was to bring the software-defined data center features of Windows Server 2016 to remote office/branch office (ROBO), edge computing, and Internet of Things (IoT) environments. While these deployments share the same need for high availability for mission-critical apps and reliable storage, enterprise customers are looking for lower cost options. The DataON Kepler-47 appliance is built to optimize the full stack of Microsoft Storage Spaces Direct, this pre-configured and stress-tested solution is ideal for smaller deployments at an affordable cost.

    •Kepler-47S – Value-optimized solution with hybrid SDD/HDD storage in a 2-node cluster

    •Kepler-47P – Performance-optimized solution with all-flash SSDs in a 2-node cluster

    This solution can achieve over 200K IOPS in a 2-node cluster. It combines high-performance NVMe SSDs with your choice of hybrid or all-flash storage to maximize performance and capacity. This appliance runs on the Cluster Shared Volumes Resilient File System (ReFS) to maximize data availability, deliver high resiliency, and improve data integrity across scale-out file server (SoFS) and software-defined data center stacks.

    •Intel® Xeon® E3-1230 V6 4C/8T 3.5GHz

    •64GB DDR4 ECC Memory

    •10TB Usable Storage (Mirrored)

    •200,000 IOPS Throughput

    •Intel Thunderbolt™ 3 networking

    “DataON is exclusively focused on customers who have the ‘Microsoft choice’ for their software-defined data centers,” said Howard Lo, vice president of sales and marketing, DataON. “We were intrigued by the Project Kepler-47 proof-of-concept last year and we wanted to accept the challenge to bring the first Kepler-47 appliance to market. We are excited to introduce the Kepler-47 appliance, a budget-friendly Storage Spaces Direct two-node solution for customers with small and ROBO deployments. We are proud to work with Microsoft, Intel, and MSI to make this concept a reality.”

    Claus Joergensen, Principal Program Manager for Storage Spaces Direct, Microsoft Corp. said, “Project Kepler-47 was a proof-of-concept that was born during our development of Storage Spaces Direct over the past 4 years. The question that we were trying to answer for our customers was ‘how low can you go?’ We had a high-performing, resource-efficient and budget-friendly product in Storage Spaces Direct and we wanted to see if it was possible to create a low-cost appliance that could run Storage Spaces Direct to meet the needs of small and ROBO deployments.”

    Kepler-47 uses Intel Thunderbolt 3 over a USB Type-C connector instead of traditional Ethernet networking between the servers. This eliminates the need for costly high-speed network adapters and switches. Thunderbolt 3 provides up to 40Gbps throughput, plenty for replicating storage and live migration of virtual machines.

    “This is a new and exciting application for Thunderbolt technology”, said Jason Ziller, General Manager, Client Connectivity Division at Intel. “The ability for Thunderbolt 3 to provide low-cost 10GbE networking makes it a perfect complement for Storage Spaces Direct to provide a low-cost hyper-converged infrastructure.”

    DataON partnered with MSI to design the Kepler-47 appliance, including the chassis, motherboard and components.

    “DataON and MSI have been long-time partners in creating hyper-converged cluster appliances,” said Norman Tsai, General Manager of Enterprise Platform Solutions BU, MSI. “When DataON approached us about the Kepler-47 concept, we were enthusiastic to support this project and provided our rich x86 platform design and production resources.”

    The Kepler-47 appliances will be featured at the DataON booth (#1726) at Microsoft Ignite 2017, from September 25-29, 2017 in Orlando, Florida.

    DESIGNED FOR WINDOWS SERVER 2016 STORAGE SPACES DIRECT

    Green Solar Technologies Helps Small Towns and Rural Areas Reap Benefits of Solar Boom

    LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) September 20, 2017

    The positive economic effects of the solar power industry driving a surge of new jobs and energizing the U.S. economy. According to Los Angeles-based Green Solar Technologies (GST), a national solar installation company, small towns and rural communities are reaping the benefits from the surge in solar business.

    According to energy.gov, as of 2016, the solar workforce grew at a rate 12 times faster than the overall economy, and since 2010, this workforce has increased by 123 percent. Based on recent numbers from The Solar Foundation’s Solar Job Census, more than 260,000 Americans are working in the field, giving a boost to the U.S. economy across the board.

    At Green Solar Technologies, Business Development Manager Steve Bagish stated “We discovered that smaller, underserved markets are hungry for solar because of rising energy prices and that there were few companies to serve this demand so we began to focus on small-town America.”

    According to Bagish, “We sell, finance and project-manage hundreds of solar installations in small towns across America, which gives us a unique advantage over other national companies that only serve large metropolitan areas. Those companies don’t currently have the operational infrastructure to be able to sell and install in these areas and have been missing out.”

    This strategy - to go where others are not - helped to turned Green Solar into a renewable energy giant with operations in 19 states.

    Green Solar Technologies installs thousands of solar projects per year with approximately 50% outside of major metropolitan areas. Each solar project requires on average five skilled workers.

    “From ‘mom and pop’ electrical companies to contractors and roofers, small businesses in these rural areas are now hiring more, working more and enjoying profitable business,” said Bagish. “More jobs, more opportunities and more dollars are flowing into these communities,” he said.

    So homeowners buying a residential solar power system not only save money on electricity, but they help local businesses, too. Structural engineers, designers, installers and project managers are required and those jobs help local economies by infusing cash back into Main Street businesses such as drug stores, hardware stores, food markets and clothing stores.

    As solar power becomes a more mature industry and is adopted by more consumers, this trickle-down job-creation effect is helping expand opportunities for growth in small town economies across the country.

    Editor's note: Mr Steve Bagish, Business Development Manager, Green Solar Technologies, is available for interview. Call 844-765-8324, ext. 145, or email steveb(at)greensoltech.com.

    G2 Crowd finds 4C tops satisfaction ratings and DoubleClick Digital Marketing earns highest overall market presence score

    Chicago (PRWEB) September 20, 2017

    G2 Crowd, the world’s leading business software review platform, today released the Fall 2017 Cross-Channel Advertising Software Grid report to help businesses make the best Cross-Channel Advertising technology buying decision. DoubleClick Digital Marketing, Marin Software, Sizmek, Kenshoo Infinity Suite, 4C, MediaMath TerminalOne Marketing OS™, AdRoll, and Rocket Fuel Programmatic Marketing Platform were named Leaders in the report, receiving a strong customer satisfaction score with a large market presence.

    Choozle, Quantcast Advertise, Acquisio, The Trade Desk, and CAKE were named High Performers in the report, earning strong customer satisfaction marks with smaller market presence scores. 4C earned the highest overall satisfaction score while DoubleClick Digital Marketing earned the highest overall market presence score.

    This report also breaks down the Cross-Channel Advertising category, based on market presence and customer satisfaction score, for Small-Business, Mid-Market, and Enterprise reviewers. At the small-business level, Choozle earned the highest overall satisfaction score and DoubleClick Digital Marketing earned the highest overall market presence score. In the mid-market segment, 4C earned the highest overall satisfaction score while DoubleClick Digital Marketing earned the highest overall market presence score. Finally, at the enterprise level, 4C earned the highest overall satisfaction score while DoubleClick Digital Marketing earned the highest overall market presence score.

    The Grid leverages customer satisfaction data reported by authenticated users along with vendor market presence determined from social and public data. Based on a combination of these scores, each software solution is categorized as a Leader, High Performer, Contender or Niche.

    Key Findings:

    • Tightened focus on what qualifies as video functionality — Vendors have become more discerning in the channels where their product can offer capability. Video advertising is becoming more expansive and far-reaching, and products need to be able to withstand required best practices to succeed. Yet, the overall user satisfaction average for the “video functionality” feature has dropped since the Spring 2017 Cross-Channel Advertising Grid℠ Report: the average was 80% and now it is 78%. A possible explanation would be that users are becoming more critical about products’ actual ability to create, buy, and manage video advertisements.
    • Improvement of products’ mobile advertising capability — In the Spring 2017 Cross-Channel Advertising Grid℠ Report, the overall average for “mobile rich media capabilities” was 75%. In the Fall 2017 Cross-Channel Advertising Grid℠ Report, the overall average for that same feature function increased to 78%. In this report, seven vendors specifically denoted that they do not offer mobile rich media features.
    • Increased dependence on DSP capabilities — In order to qualify as a cross-channel advertising product, a software platform must offer capabilities across three or more digital advertising channels. A software tool doesn’t necessarily have to integrate or offer a demand side platform (DSP) within its offerings, but users take note when it does. The opportunity for advertisers to buy advertisements in real time is necessary for them to retain the attentions of their consumers. When products’ DSP functionality works across a variety of devices, then users are pleased and their reviews show it. In the Spring 2017 Cross-Channel Advertising Grid℠ Report, the overall average for cross-device capabilities was 77%; in the Fall 2017 Grid℠ Report, the overall average is 79%.

    About the Cross-Channel Advertising Software Grid report:

    • The report is based on more than 1,607 reviews written by business professionals.
    • Of the 54 products listed in G2 Crowd’s Cross-Channel Advertising category, the ranked products each received ten or more reviews to qualify for inclusion on the Grid.

    New eCommerce Platform Go Fish Marketplace Sets Free 107 Million Sales Reps

    San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 20, 2017

    It’s a fact: 8.3% of the entire US adult population is a direct sales rep. Whereas the entire direct sales industry is setup to bind the sales reps and hold them back in many ways, the mission of Go Fish, the first online marketplace for the $189 Billion global direct selling industry, is to “liberate” each and every one.

    Prior to Go Fish, sales reps were balled and chained to a limited product line. And, in order to make a sale, had to pound the pavement or hold awkward product “parties” in their home with strangers. To rub salt into wounds, they were required to fork up as much as $800 just to join and get a "starter kit" ($300 - $500 worth of inventory). For sales reps and wannabe sales reps on a low income, the current system was anything but benevolent, and prevented many from developing an income, becoming self-sustainable and achieving financial freedom.

    Enter Go Fish. Now sales reps can join a direct sales team for free, instantly be given their own products website and a back-end management website where they can sell any products in the entire marketplace and, using an innovative face-to-face video platform, can interface with customers thousands of miles away.

    And Go Fish’s ground-breaking business model is designed to grow virally rapidly via three compounding factors of viral growth: (1) Go Fish recruits Merchants, (2) Merchants recruit sales reps, then (3) sales reps recruit other sales reps as well as customers. And to further increase the rate of user growth, Merchants, Sales Reps, and Customers can utilize the virality of their social media.

    “We’ve taken a 100-year-old proven industry that was desperately in need of innovation,” says Joseph M. Baliva, Go Fish’s Founder, “and using sophisticated technology and a benevolent user-friendly approach, helping as many as possible earn as much as possible by selling an array of products online, we’ve vastly improved upon it. You might say Go Fish was 100 years in the making.” Baliva, a true believer, adds, ”Like the old adage says, teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime. Well, now, millions of unchained sales reps can Go Fish and earn for a lifetime.”

    The award recipients were announced at the 15th Annual Energy & Clean Technology Venture Forum, hosted by the Rice Alliance for Technology and Entrepreneurship.

    Houston, Texas (PRWEB) September 20, 2017

    Advantek Waste Management Services, a full-service waste management company which utilizes innovative slurry injection technology to dispose of contaminated solids and liquids in multiple industries, was named one of the 10 Most Promising Energy and Clean Technology Venture Companies at the 15th Annual Energy & Clean Technology Venture Forum, hosted by the Rice Alliance for Technology and Entrepreneurship. Advantek provides disposal of oilfield wastes including drilling mud, drill cuttings, produced water, tank bottoms, and flowback water through its oilfield vertical, and handles biosolids, sewage, as well as other organic wastes from municipal wastewater treatment plants through its GeoEnvironment Technologies subsidiary.

    CEO Omar Abou-Sayed said: “Advantek is proud to have been recognized as one of the Most Promising Energy and Clean Technology Venture Companies at this year’s Rice Alliance Forum. The award further confirms our strong belief that using our proprietary slurry injection technique, we will make landfilling obsolete for multiple classes of waste. Our flagship facilities in Texas and California are already addressing the most difficult wastes in the oilfield and from municipal wastewater treatment plants, and we anticipate adding multiple additional facilities in the next 12-24 months on our own and with our strategic partners.”

    “Every year the quality of companies improves,” said Rice Alliance managing director Brad Burke, who presided over the announcement of the winners of the Energy & Clean Technology Venture awards at the event. “Over the past 15 years, more than 2,000 companies have presented at Rice Alliance Technology Venture Forums. These companies have raised more than $3.1 billion in funding. This speaks to the quality of the companies and to the robust entrepreneurial ecosystem of investors that has been developed to support these companies. Despite the challenging economic environment over the past several years, good companies have been able to attract investors.”

    The forum, hosted by the Rice Alliance for Technology and Entrepreneurship, is the largest venture capital conference in the Southwest with 600 attendees, including investors, venture capitalists, industry representatives, business leaders, service providers, and entrepreneurs. The two-day event culminated in the announcement of the 10 Most Promising Energy & Clean Technology Companies Award chosen from the more than 225 startup applicants. The companies were judged by industry experts as well as by the interest generated from participating investors. This was the most startups to ever participate in the Energy Forum.

    The Junior Solar Sprint, held in partnership with the Electric Vehicle Association, the US EPA, and Young Scholars Circle, encourages elementary and middle school students interested in STEM.

    Vienna, VA (PRWEB) September 20, 2017

    Students from Fairfax County Public Schools and Loudoun County Public Schools won awards at the 2017 Northern Virginia Junior Solar Sprint (JSS), a competition to design, build, and race model solar electric cars. The JSS was held September 16, 2017 at Marshall High School.

    JSS aims to stimulate interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) for 5-8th graders. It is a satellite event of the USA Science and Engineering Festival and is sponsored by the U.S. Army Outreach Program. This year, Sajni Vederey, current 11th grade at TJHSST and the CEO and Founder of STEM All Stars, hosted the JSS, in cooperation with Young Scholars Circle, Electric Vehicle Association, Technology Student Association, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. 

    Each JSS team, consisting of two to three members, was tasked to design and build a model solar electric car and race against other teams. The students applied their knowledge of aerodynamic drag, rolling resistance, weight, and drive train to maximize their cars for speed and reliability. The race was a double elimination competition with awards going to the fastest three cars. Each winning team received a trophy, medals from STEM All Stars and EVA and gift certificates from Young Scholars Circle: $150 for all the team members who got first place, $100 for all the second place team members, $75 for all the third place team members and $50 for all the special awardees.

    Junior Solar Sprint winners and all the JSS Virginia teams can compete again with more schools from Washington, D.C., and Maryland schools in the Greater DC Junior Solar Sprint in May 2018. For more information on our STEM events and tutoring, visit https://youngscholarscircle.com/.

    Experience True Influence's Platform At Booth 59 From October 2-4, 2017.

    Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) September 20, 2017

    Demand generation pioneer True Influence has announced it will join the roster of exhibitors at the East-coast edition of MarTech: The Marketing Tech Conference October 2–4, at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts.

    MarTech Boston will bring together more than 40 speakers — representing such thought-leading companies as JP Morgan Chase, GE Digital, and Dun & Bradstreet — to explore the convergence of marketing, technology, and management into a single, integrated discipline.

    “Marketing, technology, and management were silos of the past,” says program chair Scott Brinker on the conference website. “Marketing technology management — MarTech — is the fabric of the future.” The conference aims to empower present and future leaders to capture the synergies among these three disciplines in driving change through a unified MarTech team.

    The True Influence team will exhibit at booth number 59, where visitors will experience first-hand the company’s data-based ABM platform, InsightBASE. Using the latest intent monitoring technology, InsightBASE helps marketing and sales teams to recognize where their leads are in the sales cycle and develop customized strategies for working with them.

    "We are proud to be exhibiting at the MarTech Boston conference and connecting our subject matter experts with others in the industry,” says True Influence CEO Brian Giese. “We’ve always known how important the impact of intent monitoring on the industry is, and we are excited to share our views of it with respect to the stages of the behavioral process at the show.”
