    Xchange Technology Group has earned the Responsible Recycling Practices for Electronics Recycling (R2) Standard certification at its North Carolina headquarter location.

    • Safe, effective recovery and reuse of electronics
    • Guarded downstream control of the recycling chain

    The new policies work in conjunction with XTG’s expanding asset recovery offerings, which help customers responsibly recycle and recover some of the costs incurred as a result of phasing out old IT equipment. R2-certification ensures that the policies in place will address the security concerns that accompany the destruction of sensitive data on old equipment.

    “We are proud to bring R2 to our NC headquarters. We are already developing plans to seek certification in our international locations as we maintain our global commitment to safe and secure IT disposal,” says Rupp.

    In addition to R2:2013, XTG’s Morrisville, NC site also received OHSAS 18001:2007, ISO 9001:2015, and 14001:2015 certifications.

    Communications and Integration Hub for Carrier's working with multiple visibility platforms.

    PERRYSBURG, Ohio (PRWEB) October 23, 2017

    Shipper’s demand visibility. Carriers pay for it. Government mandated telematics coupled with the emergence of shipper centric freight platforms have created a revolution in Freight Visibility. These advancements, however, come at significant cost. On average, the Carrier must bear much of these cost with little to no direct benefit to them in return. As new visibility platforms enter the market, customers are requiring Carriers to integrate. Although, the connection to these platforms have no upfront cost to the Carrier, the setup and management of these connections have significant long-term financial tolls.

    Today, Tranztec Solutions, a leader in transportation technology, is proud to announce VIA® Visibility, a new benefit providing free and centralized integration with all leading freight visibility platforms for Carriers using the VIA® transportation platform. The VIA® platform is a patent pending, web-based platform that provides a robust suite of tools, capabilities, and collaboration features that can be leveraged by transportation companies of all sizes and technical capabilities. Whether or not a Carrier has a TMS or any technology at all, VIA® provides them with an advanced platform that enables them to grow beyond what has traditionally been possible.

    “Shippers demand visibility to their freight,” Toby Miller, CEO of Tranztec explains, “but the platforms that exist today leave the Carrier with the expense of achieving it. Carriers are being constantly bombarded with new requirements, regulations, and technologies that don’t provide direct benefits to them.” With VIA®, Carriers can take back the control while meeting their customer’s requirements at the same time.

    VIA® Visibility enables Carriers to supply load details, arrival, departure, and in-transit status information to Supply Chain Visibility platforms such as Macropoint, 10-4 Systems, and Fourkites without the need for time consuming spreadsheets, or expensive integration costs.

    For more information, to sign up for a demo, or to setup a VIA® account for your team – contact the Tranztec Sales team at sales(at)tranztec(dot)com or call us at 888-854-0099. You can also visit us on the web at or

    New customizable incident management software to connect higher education institutions with local communities, as well as government agencies to create transparency and provide effective response across campuses.

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (PRWEB) October 24, 2017

    The Intermedix preparedness division announced Tuesday the release of eICS for Higher Education, a web-based incident management system that provides emergency management teams at universities and colleges with enhanced visibility into resource availability, and the capabilities needed to manage notifications during incidents taking place across an educational institution.

    eICS improves operational resiliency by allowing institutions of higher education to document and oversee events based on their own set of needs and requirements, while simultaneously disseminating key details to local jurisdictions to create optimal situational awareness.

    “In recent years it has become critical for the academic community to have reliable preparedness processes in place,” said Bob Watson, president of preparedness technology at Intermedix. “By incorporating incident-management technology into these programs, universities and colleges can maintain consistent situational awareness, interoperability, share up-to-date accurate information with necessary stakeholders and most importantly provide rapid response when it’s needed most.”

    Through the electronic event log, users can document and track various incidents taking place across campus, as well as at their satellite locations. These events can range from a routine daily operation, such as a special speaker being on campus to a criminal threat which may cause a potential campus lockdown. Having the ability to monitor and oversee these types of situations in one system is essential to ensuring safety at college campuses.

    The Clery Act requires colleges and universities to think about safety in a proactive manner by requiring them to disclose security policies, produce crime logs and provide timely warnings to students and employees regarding campus threats. However, the process of preparing for, responding to and recovering from emergencies and events presents unique challenges within the higher education space. These organizations need to have the ability to manage events and any subsequent actions independently within their own infrastructure.

    The electronic record-keeping functionality eliminates the need for time-consuming paper documentation and altering individuals through telephone correspondence. With eICS, university emergency management teams have the tools needed to collate and communicate incident information more efficiently through generated reports and mass alert notifications.

    The eICS solution creates transparency from both a university and government standpoint, by having the ability to connect and instantly share information with local and state governments’ WebEOC instance. Intermedix’s WebEOC, the industry-leading incident management software, is used by a majority of emergency management organizations at all levels of government.

    “eICS is unique because of its ability to unify and regulate daily operational security needs while disseminating key information to government agencies when needed,” said Watson. “By having the ability to connect to WebEOC, the solution provides effective regional collaboration and fully integrated communication methods to ensure continued stability at our nations’ college campuses.”

    The official eICS product launch will take place at the 2017 EDUCAUSE Annual Conference on October 31.

    About Intermedix

    Intermedix is a global leader pioneering innovations in data analytics and cloud-based technology to deliver best-in-class revenue cycle management, practice management and emergency management solutions. The company supports more than 500,000 emergency preparedness and response incidents around the world and enables more than 15,000 health care providers to focus on delivering excellence in patient care.

    Community Development Financial Institution Welcomes First Native American Investor

    LAKE FOREST, Calif. (PRWEB) October 24, 2017

    Clearinghouse Community Development Financial Institution (Clearinghouse CDFI) announced today a new equity investment from the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC), a federally recognized sovereign nation located in Scott County, Minnesota. With this investment, the SMSC becomes Clearinghouse CDFI’s first Native American investor.

    Clearinghouse CDFI will use this investment to benefit low-income and distressed communities in Sovereign Nations and throughout the Western United States. The investment will help Clearinghouse CDFI continue financing community facilities, affordable housing, commercial real estate, and other projects that create jobs and services in underserved areas. Specifically, these funds will be targeted at various programs and businesses serving Native American Communities and Native American tribes.

    Similar projects previously financed by Clearinghouse CDFI include:

    • Native American Natural Foods, Pine Ridge Reservation, SD—A $500,000 working capital loan and a $250,000 grant to help sustain NANF’s growth nationally and support Native American entrepreneurship and jobs within the Oglala Lakota community.
    • Pinoleville Pomo Nation, Ukiah, CA—A $2.24 million loan to reacquire former tribal land and further tribal economic development.
    • Washoe Travel Plaza, Washoe Reservation, NV—A $10 million Federal NMTC allocation, $2 million Nevada State NMTC allocation, and $5.6 million loan to the Washoe Tribe to produce a sustainable source of revenue for this Nevada and California tribe.

    “We prioritize helping Native American communities and Sovereign Nations, many of which have suffered from systemic discrimination and centuries-long policies designed to induce hardship,” said Douglas J. Bystry, President/ Chief Executive Officer of Clearinghouse CDFI. “We are pleased with this investment and see it as indicative of our ongoing commitment to these independent peoples.”

    Clearinghouse CDFI has financed $1.5 billion in total loans for over 1,820 community projects over the past 20 years. These projects have created or retained more than 16,500 jobs and benefit over 1.5 million individuals. This includes the rehabilitation of more than 15.1 million square feet of blighted properties. These projects have benefited over 610 separate underserved communities throughout California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, and Native American Tribal Lands.

    “Our Dakota tradition of helping others guides the decisions our tribe makes today,” said Chairman Charles R. Vig of the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community. “The SMSC alone has provided $500 million in economic development loans to our fellow tribes. Clearinghouse CDFI shares our goal of helping tribes across the country, and we are glad to be a partner in that effort.”

    About the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community:

    The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community is a federally recognized, sovereign Native American tribe located southwest of Minneapolis/St. Paul. Following a Dakota tradition of generosity, the SMSC is one of the top philanthropists in Minnesota and is the largest contributor to Native American tribes and causes across the country. It is a strong community partner and a leader in protecting and restoring natural resources. The SMSC’s government, Gaming Enterprise, and various other enterprises are collectively the largest employer in Scott County.

    About Clearinghouse CDFI:

    Clearinghouse Community Development Financial Institution (Clearinghouse CDFI) addresses unmet credit needs in California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, and Sovereign Nations in the Western United States. The first CDFI in the nation to be rated by Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services (AA-), Clearinghouse CDFI is an industry leader helping to bridge the gap between conventional lending standards and the needs of low-income and distressed communities. Clearinghouse CDFI is also a B Corp--a certification received from the nonprofit B Lab.

    Entomo Founder Shows How to Measure Things That Matter in Upcoming Webinar

    Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) October 24, 2017

    Entomo, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based channel management software and solutions, today announced that Founder Sanjoy Chatterji will host a webinar titled “Using Sabermetrics to Drive Channel Partner Performance” on Thursday, January 22nd at 12:00 p.m. EST. During this webinar, Chatterji will offer tips for success to drive improved performance and collaboration with distributor, reseller, and VAR partners.

    “Most companies are tracking the wrong metrics related to their channel partners and programs, and hence leaving money on the table,” said Chatterji. “In the book and movie ‘Moneyball’, Billy Beane and the Oakland A’s used smart analytics to reveal the most important predictors of success – analysis that traditional metrics overlooked. Similarly, many companies use rudimentary metrics to assess and incentivize channel partner performance. These often miss the mark, and performance suffers.”

    In this webinar you’ll learn:

    • How scorecards change partner behavior;
    • Why raw revenue metrics are not a sufficient indicator of current or future performance;
    • Channel Sabermetrics: How to design a balanced partner scorecard;
    • How to collect and compute key channel data to feed a scorecard;
    • Other best practices for channel-driven companies.

    LuvPics Allows Anyone to Share Hidden Video Messages in Physical Photo Products.

    SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) October 24, 2017

    Today at the 5th annual Mobile Photo Connect conference, MixxMedia, LLC. launched LuvPics using technology protected by its patent US 9,324,014 titled Automated User Content Processing for Augmented Reality. LuvPics is a mobile application that enables photos, invitations and cards to come to life using augmented reality. Instead of just viewing physical photos, invitations, or cards, LuvPics allows users to view secure videos by scanning an image with the LuvPics app, available for download on iOS and Android devices.

    The LuvPics app turns every mobile device screen into a secure hidden video viewer and represents a paradigm shift in photo products. After reflecting on her son’s first birthday photo album, Shar Scott, Co-founder, realized the best parts of the event were missing. The amazing moment when her son successfully blew out his candle and the apprehension of him taking his first bite of birthday cake were captured in photographs, but the video of these moments revealed much more about the joyous event. After speaking to other parents, they too, wanted the ability to do more with their photos and videos.

    “With the growth in consumer videos stemming from smartphones having better resolution and more processing power; users want to be able to create media products of their events, holidays and family traditions that are able to incorporate these videos seamlessly with physical photo products to tell a cohesive story. Until now, videos and photos were only able to be combined in a digital format. With LuvPics, users can create and view great photo products that will come alive and last for generations,” said Shar Scott.

    The future of photo products is a connected emotional experience that can be achieved by combining photos and videos via augmented reality. According to Global Market Insight’s Augmented Reality Report, the global augmented reality market will be valued $165 billion by 2024. LuvPics is the first of several mobile offerings that will use MixxMedia’s patent focused on processing user content to create augmented reality photo products, including photographs, photobooks, invitations, and calendars.

    Former General Manager of the PCI Security Standards Council joins Bluefin to provide strategic guidance and feedback on the company’s payment security and P2PE product expansion

    Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 24, 2017

    Bluefin Payment Systems, the leading provider of PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) solutions for education, healthcare and enterprises, announced today that Stephen W. Orfei, the former General Manager of the PCI Security Standards Council (SSC), has joined the company’s Product Advisory Council.

    Bluefin launched its Product Advisory Council in late 2014, after becoming the first provider in North America to receive PCI validation for its P2PE solution. The goal of the Council was to bring together industry experts that had commercialized disruptive FinTech innovations to advise Bluefin on its product and strategic path. The Council is made up of payment and security industry leaders including Dickson Chu, Global Head of Portfolio Management for BBVA and former Chief Product Officer and Executive Vice President of Corporate Development at Ingo Money, Inc.; and Jeff Liesendahl, Managing Partner at Island Peak Capital and former CEO and co-Founder of Accertify.

    As General Manager of the PCI SSC, Mr. Orfei’s role was to lead the Council in its mission to increase payment data security globally. Mr. Orfei is a recognized industry expert in global payment platforms, Ecommerce, mobile payments, transit and cybersecurity, with over 20 years of experience developing and delivering complex global payment solutions. He also holds several payments industry patents and awards.

    “In 2014, when we became the first provider of P2PE in North America, we found ourselves in a unique position of having a solution that, while endorsed by the PCI SSC since 2011, was the very first market entrant. So while the goal was to commercialize our PCI P2PE solution and generate revenue, we found that our immediate task at hand was how to educate the market on the value and benefits of this solution. We decided to form a Product Advisory Council consisting of leaders that had ‘been there, done that’ to guide us along our path,” said Ruston Miles, Chief of Strategy and Innovation for Bluefin.

    “As a Participating Organization (PO) of the PCI SSC since 2006, we have worked closely with PCI and Stephen over the years to advance point of sale and Ecommerce payment security. It is a great honor that Stephen has agreed to advise Bluefin on our global P2PE and payment security product expansion.”

    Bluefin specializes in PCI-validated P2PE integrated and stand-alone solutions for retail, mobile, call center and unattended environments, and secure Ecommerce technologies including transparent redirect, payment iFrame and tokenization. The company was the first to introduce Decryption as a Service (DaaS) P2PE with their Decryptx® product, which enables payment gateways, processors and software providers to connect to Bluefin via an API and provide the company’s validated P2PE solution through their own platforms. Bluefin has more than 40 partners enabled for P2PE through their Decryptx partner network.

    “We cannot prevent our systems and networks from being breached – but we can devalue the data, making it useless in the hands of criminals, organized crime and state-funded actors. Bluefin’s encryption and services do exactly that by helping merchants and service providers get connected, encrypted, and protected. I have always been impressed with Bluefin’s ability to implement their solutions and solve for both SMB and complex payment environments. They walk the talk,” stated Stephen W. Orfei.

    Bluefin Payment Systems is the leading provider of secure payment technology for retailers, enterprises and small to medium-sized businesses worldwide.

    Accredible, the industry-leading digital credentialing platform announces it is the first organization to issue live credentials via the Blockchain.

    San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2017

    Accredible, the industry-leading digital credentialing platform announces it is the first organization to issue live credentials via the Blockchain.

    The Blockchain is a digitized, decentralized, public ledger of transactions. It’s currently most well known in the financial services industry for logging bitcoin and cryptocurrency transactions, however the Blockchain can be programmed to record any transaction of value. Accredible is now using it to issue un-hackable, verifiable digital credentials.

    It works by recording every transaction on the blockchain to every computer on the network. If someone attempts to create a fake credential that looks like an issued credential, it won’t verify against the existing Blockchain record. Even if the company issuing the credential itself is hacked, the digital credential itself will remain unaffected and secure. This means once a credential is recorded to the blockchain, it can’t be altered, faked, or spoofed.

    The announcement comes during National Cyber Security Awareness Month, of which Accredible is a national champion, “We quietly rolled out this program in June to the excitement of our clients,” said Danny King, Co-Founder and CEO of Accredible. “Beforehand, using this sort of technology to securely issue digital credentials was only theorized, but no one had actually done it.”

    Initially partnering with Tierion, Accredible has issued over 5,000 blockchain credentials since June 1 to hundreds of clients, including:

    • Digital Marketing Institute
    • Blockchain Institute of Technology
    • American College of Healthcare Sciences
    • Financial Planning Standards Council
    • The Professional Petroleum Data Management Association

    “The implications for the industry are huge: using the blockchain means we can now offer credentials that are vastly more secure,” said Alan Heppenstall, Co-Founder and CTO of Accredible. “In an age where reputation and trust means everything, this is consequential for the legitimacy of online learning and the credentialing industry as a whole.”

    Accredible boilerplate

    Accredible is the industry-leading digital credentialing platform that helps organizations securely issue, manage, track, and verify digital certificates and badges. Accredible issues digital certificates and badges on behalf of MIT, Cambridge University, Google, Rosetta Stone, Kaplan University, The Digital Marketing Institute, AFCPE, AIPMM, and hundreds other organizations across the world.

    USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) grants communications systems and methods for Redwall Mobile® that secures smartphones in a Trusted Execution Environment below the application layer, and that runs alongside the device kernel.

    Beavercreek, Ohio (PRWEB) October 24, 2017

    Redwall Technologies, the leading ISV for multi-modal endpoint device security, today announced it has been granted patent number 9,514,300 from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for communications systems and methods for enhanced security across wireless devices. The patented nomenclature is for Redwall’s Trusted Execution Environment, or TEE, that operates as a security buffer between mobile device hardware and the mobile device application stack. TEE is a key component of Redwall Mobile® and secures smartphones and IoT devices below the application stack at the kernel layer.

    “This patent is the culmination of years of research and collaboration with the U.S. Government and leading subject matter experts in mobile and government security, many of them within the Redwall organization,” said John Rosenstengel, president and CEO of Redwall Technologies. “We worked extensively with the government exploiting multiple vulnerabilities on a multitude of devices and found that even the most basic software-based attacks could penetrate them. It was a natural progression for our dev team to look at securing the device as close to the hardware layer as possible to eliminate the software-based attack, yet still provide all the device functionality needed for use in the field.”

    Securing devices at the kernel, the intermediary code between device hardware and software, is a departure from many competing security tools that operate at the application layer using a “sandbox” methodology to isolate applications and data within the operating system. A secure sandbox, or container, is created where corporate (or government) data and apps reside, while personal data and apps remain intact and unchanged. This dual-persona smartphone security method allows one smartphone to be used for both personal and business use.

    The issue with the container method is the data left in memory on the device that is still accessible in both sandbox and personal-use mode. In this instance, true app/data isolation is not achieved because of the memory leakage.

    The Redwall Mobile® method of hardening the smartphone at the kernel layer creates a purer and completely segmented system with multiple personas for both personal and business use. Redwall Mobile® uses cryptographic keys to isolate data and apps for each persona so that when the user changes from one persona to the next, there is no data leakage to memory; it is removed when the user leaves that persona.

    “Our experience with customers and the marketplace in general has led us towards the multi-modal persona direction,” said Redwall Chief Technology Office Eric Üner. “We typically find when onboarding a customer that they need five or more personas – several for both personal and business use. The days of dual-persona mobile security are fleeting.”

    About Redwall Mobile®

    More than just a container or simple switch between work and home profiles, Redwall Mobile® features multi-modal personas, each with its own unique apps, data, settings, and encryption keys. The multi-modal feature of Redwall Mobile® delivers a cleaner operating environment because it secures the device at the kernel layer, below the application stack. This security architecture allows Redwall to provide customers with any mode of persona that their security policy requires, whereby one BYOD user can have any number of device personas. Each persona can be built with its own securely isolated apps, data, settings, and authentication requirements that define which processes can access which system features, drivers, files, and networks.

    With this unique approach, Redwall Mobile® puts client organizations in a more proactive posture limiting malicious user and virus activity by halting access to sensitive corporate (or personal) data below the application stack. Because Redwall operates below the application layer, it thwarts even highly-sophisticated kernel and driver exploits. Furthermore, Android devices hardened with Redwall are immune to threats like TowelRoot and KingRoot without the need for patches or updates of any kind, and will defend against future zero-day attacks without the need to push an update. No emergency patching is required in this set-and-forget mode of securing access to data and sensitive IP.

    Because this technology is firmware-based, it can also be applied to IoT components such as medical instruments, smart appliances, SCADA devices, sensors, and other smart devices.

    About Redwall Technologies, LLC

    Redwall Technologies was founded in 2013 by a group of defense and intelligence practitioners who had a common desire to secure mobile points of intrusion into government datacenters. Rather than looking at signatures of viruses already in circulation, Redwall founders developed their product on the premise of what would keep us from hacking into a device? Redwall founders took to the offensive searching for a means to prevent their own “white-hat” hacker team from compromising a mobile device. This led to their development team building device-hardening tools for smartphones, tablets, and other connected devices such as those in SCADA, CANBus, and similar networks.

    Redwall's unique, patented technology is typically installed at organizations whose users rely heavily on the highest levels of device performance and availability, while ensuring military-grade security. The prototypical Redwall Technology user is a first responder in a disaster zone or member of a military operations team engaging in matters of national security whose field communications require adapting to fast-changing environments and threat landscapes.

    Top Louisiana hospital aims to enhance patient engagement and service with new system

    Sulphur Springs, TX (PRWEB) October 24, 2017

    Access today announced that Thibodaux Regional Medical Center in Louisiana has successfully deployed its electronic signatures solution. This will enable the hospital to capture authorized consents and other forms that are part of the admissions packet at the point of entry, without generating, copying or scanning paper.

    Previously, when a patient came to the front desk in admissions or the emergency room (ER), a registrar collated a packet of required forms. The patient then went through and filled these in, and used a pen to sign each page. Once they were done, the registrar scanned the forms packet and gave a copy back to the patient.

    The Access system has transformed this process. Now, a packet of eForms is automatically generated on demand with patient demographics pre-populated. The registrar shows the patient the forms they will be signing, which they authorize using a convenient electronic signature tablet. Upon completion, the eForms and accompanying eSignatures are routed directly into the patient’s record via MEDITECH Scanning and Archiving.

    “I’ve never seen our registration staff so excited to start using a new system,” said Kim Cortez, billing systems specialist at Thibodaux Regional. “Now that the Access system is live they love it and so do our patients.”

    One of the keys to Thibodaux Regional’s early success was the positive relationship between the hospital staff and Access’s professional services team.

    “I’ve been managing software projects at our hospital for 28 years and the Access electronic signatures project was by far the easiest implementation I’ve been a part of,” Cortez said. “From Vania our project manager to Clayton our account manager to Bob our workflow consultant, the Access team was excellent. They were on top of everything, communicated clear updates daily and were always asking, ‘How can we help?’”

    At a busy hospital that is fully invested in improving patient care through technology, there are always multiple IT/IS projects at any one time. During the implementation of the Access system, Thibodaux Regional was in the middle of upgrading its MEDITECH EHR and wasn’t sure how well the Access project managers would adapt to this. Cortez was pleasantly surprised by what happened next.

    “Our project manager from Access let us put everything on hold so we could focus on the MEDITECH upgrade,” she said. “I was amazed by how flexible she was with the process and this was very helpful. Now the two systems are working well together and we haven’t had any hiccups.”

    About Access

    For more than 15 years, Access has developed electronic forms management solutions that eliminate the unnecessary expense, risk and inefficiency of paper forms. Our 100 percent paperless technology enables organizations in any industry to capture, manage, sign and share forms data without printing or scanning.

    G2 Crowd finds Sage Intacct tops satisfaction rating and Netsuite ERP earns highest overall market presence score

    CHICAGO (PRWEB) October 24, 2017

    G2 Crowd, the world’s leading business software review platform, today released the Fall 2017 Accounting Software Grid® report to help businesses make the best Accounting technology buying decision. NetSuite ERP, QuickBooks Desktop Pro, Sage Intacct, QuickBooks Online, SAP ERP, Quickbooks Desktop Enterprise, PeopleSoft, FinancialForce Accounting, Sage 100c, Microsoft Dynamics GP, and Deltek Vision were named Leaders in the report, receiving a strong customer satisfaction score with a large market presence.

    Kashoo, CCH ProSystem fx Tax, and Acumatica were named High Performers in the report, earning strong customer satisfaction marks with smaller market presence scores. Sage Intacct earned the highest overall satisfaction score while Netsuite ERP earned the highest overall market presence score.

    This report also breaks down the Accounting category, based on market presence and customer satisfaction score, for Small-Business, Mid-Market, and Enterprise reviewers. At the small-business level, Quickbooks Desktop Pro for the highest overall satisfaction score and Netsuite ERP earned the highest overall market presence score. In the mid-market segment, Sage Intacct received the highest overall satisfaction score and Netsuite ERP earned the highest overall market presence score. Finally, at the enterprise level, SAP ERP earned the highest overall satisfaction score and Oracle PeopleSoft 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:

    • Small-business requirements not necessarily met — Small-business users of accounting software explained that the most significant hurdles with the products they used are the high cost of the solution and excessive features offered. Conversely, some users mentioned how some of the solutions scale well along with business operations, or offer the potential to do so. A user of Acumatica, for example, explained that “Some features are just far too complicated or overkill for smallish business. Due to the nature of our business, we use only a subset of the many, many features.” Users of other accounting products echoed the sentiment, stating the high costs make it difficult for smaller companies to remain with the product, especially if the product has a significant learning curve.
    • Reporting functionality — While some users said that they can easily manipulate and create reports with their accounting products, the majority of users said that creating those reports is frustrating. Users pointed out that, many times, reports aren’t accurate or do not pull from the correct sources. According to users, custom reports and custom data views are difficult to create or far too complicated to get accustomed to. Most users prefer simple, straightforward, and intuitive reporting capabilities that don’t require a third-party consultant to configure.

    About the Accounting Software Grid® report:

    • The report is based on more than 2,215 reviews written by business professionals.
    • Of the 133 products listed in G2 Crowd’s Accounting category, the ranked products each received ten or more reviews to qualify for inclusion on the Grid®.

    New solution will speed and automate AP processes, while removing manual tasks for staff

    OLATHE, Kan. (PRWEB) October 24, 2017

    Shamrock Solutions today announced that Renewable Energy Group, Inc., North America’s largest producer of advanced biofuel and developer of renewable chemicals with an international reach, chose the company to provide an automated data capture and extraction solution for Accounts Payable (AP) documentation.

    “I first heard of Shamrock at a Perceptive Content user group when someone at our table recommended their professional services and custom solutions,” said REG’s Jeff Lucas, Senior Manager, IT Services. “After doing some further research online it became clear that they were a solid option.”

    The first project that REG engaged Shamrock for was a Perceptive Content upgrade. When this went smoothly, REG decided that Shamrock would also be the right partner for the AP project. Currently, REG’s AP department receives invoices from many vendors that are not indexed. This makes it difficult to know what information is contained in each invoice without opening it, and then requires keying in the data to make it usable. Staff members enter payment voucher information in the JD Edwards system, and then link the invoice in Perceptive Content to the correct vendor record.

    The custom workflow Shamrock and REG are creating will transform this process. Invoices will be auto-indexed upon receipt from vendors, triggering automated actions based on the data they contain. If there is a successful three-way match between the invoice, receipt and purchase order, a payment voucher will be automatically created in JDE. This solution uses OCR and web services to enable intelligent data capture and enhance integration between Perceptive Content and the ERP system.

    “Shamrock’s solution will take a very slow, manual process and change it into a fast, automated one,” Lucas said. “It will free up time for our existing team and make it easier to scale up quickly without additional hires. Automating invoice processing and voucher creation are not small tasks, but Shamrock is doing a great job.”

    Lucas believes that one of the keys to the success of the previous upgrade and current workflow automation/data capture project is the close working relationship between Shamrock and REG.

    “I recommend Shamrock because of their commitment to the client and their ability to fully understand our needs and current business processes,” Lucas said. “Rather than trying to shoe-horn an off-the-shelf solution into our workflow, Shamrock provides customized solutions and insight into best practices.”

    “We're proud to partner with an industry-leading company like REG and to help them improve their AP processes with our intelligent data capture solution,” said Shamrock founder and CEO Robert Albright. “At Shamrock our main focus is our customers and we're privileged to meet the needs of REG and our other clients."
