    T1V announces the release of ThinkHub 4.2, which includes expanded remote participant capabilities with AirConnect Files and AirConnect Access.

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (PRWEB) November 01, 2017

    T1V announces its quarterly software release for ThinkHub, which introduces a robust feature set to improve remote collaboration amongst meeting participants in its AirConnect App with the addition of AirConnect Files™ and AirConnect Access™. In addition to UI enhancements and a higher-performance Stylus Mode, ThinkHub 4.2 features native videoconferencing integration for Zoom.

    AirConnect is the BYOD (bring your own device) companion application that allows participants to share their device screens to ThinkHub and ViewHub. With ThinkHub 4.2, AirConnect Files introduces the ability to exchange files between individual devices and the ThinkHub Canvas. Users can now share files to and download files from the interactive Canvas with their AirConnect app. This functionality includes the exchange of Canvas notes, website URLs, and media files.

    Similarly, users can download any media file from the Canvas to their device - making the exchange of files between team members and remote participants more seamless than ever. AirConnect Files retains the original media file size and resolution, and is currently available for all Mac and Windows devices.

    AirConnect Access provides remote participants the same ThinkHub controls they would experience if they were in-room. Under the AirConnect Access feature set, participants can view, control, and virtually point in the digital Canvas. Also within AirConnect Access controls, users can download the entire Canvas as a PDF.

    Because AirConnect Access enables remote participants to fully engage in ThinkHub’s collaboration capabilities, the AirConnect Access control panel allows the meeting organizer to control who has what level of access to the ThinkHub Canvas. Using the AirConnect credentials, remote participants will always be able to view. But the in-room organizer can specify which remote participants can control and point within a ThinkHub session.

    Transducers USA, a leading supplier of audible signal devices, has announced the introduction of its new low frequency piezo audio indicators.

    ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill. (PRWEB) November 01, 2017

    These solid-state devices are ideal replacements for electro-mechanical audio devices that include moving parts, which eventually wear out. This innovation represents a new approach to engineering audible signal devices as compared to the use of older electro-mechanical technology. Transducers USA is not aware of any other audible signal device manufacturer offering this new technology.

    This new FLIP Series (Frequency-Low, Indicator-Piezo) contains a solid-state piezo ceramic bender, instead of the electro-mechanical device, which incorporates a coil that creates the magnetic field to drive a hammer and hit a membrane that actuates the buzzer. The FLIP ceramic piezo actuates its buzzer when voltage is applied to the piezo device itself. Without moving parts, the FLIP audio device will provide a much longer life and lower failure rate than its electro-mechanical counterparts.

    The new FLIP Series is well suited for audible emergency alarms, such as those used in hospitals, nursing homes, medical centers, etc. They are ideal for smoke, CO2 and other detectors. The low frequency FLIP buzzer, in combination with high frequency beepers, provide a spectrum of alternative frequencies to accommodate both the normal and the hard-of-hearing, as is often the case in nursing homes.

    The innovative FLIP Series has been designed in response to the need for alerts and alarms to be more detectable to the human ear, especially the hearing impaired. The Hearing Loss Association of America reports “About 20% of Americans report some degree of hearing loss and at age 65, one out of three people has a hearing loss.” Legislation is currently pending to address this audio concern. The FLIP audio indicator is an ideal solution to this audibility issue, which is associated with traditional alarms, alerts and other audible signal devices. In addition, the longer operating life and lower failure rate of the FLIP Series make this solid-state device an exceptional alternative to electro-mechanical audible signal devices.

    The FLIP low frequency notifiers will activate a buzzer that sounds almost identical to the electro-mechanical counterpart. To demonstrate this, you can listen to and compare two audio files: one has a recording of an electro-mechanical buzzer, and the other has a recording of a FLIP piezo buzzer. Listen to the audio files at: to experience the negligible difference among these two types of audible signal devices.

    The frequency of the FLIP Series audio indicators is 400 Hz +/- 50 Hz, and can range from 350 Hz to 450 Hz. The SPL is 95 dBA @ 10 cm and the voltage rating is 12 VDC.

    Transducers USA will provide modifications to its standard FLIP parts, as well as custom design FLIP indicators, with variations in parts and packaging.

    The price point for the FLIP Series will be slightly higher than that for its electro-mechanical counterpart, but the FLIP indicators will provide greater reliability and longevity.

    FREE samples of these input and/or output devices are available to editors upon request. Please contact Joe Sieracki at 847-956-1920.

    Join the upcoming webinar to learn how leading A/R teams lower DSO by performing a collections maturity people and process assessment.

    Houston, TX (PRWEB) November 01, 2017

    AR & O2C Network and Highradius Corporation will be hosting a complimentary webinar on “The Collections Operations Maturity Model: How Leading A/R Teams Lower DSO by Enabling People, Process, Data, Collaboration and Technology,” Thursday, November 2, 2017 2 PM ET. Attendees of the session will learn how to assess people, process and technology that drive collections operations in their organizations to reduce DSO and past-due A/R.

    While credit and accounts receivable departments aim for 90%+ current receivables current i.e., within payment terms, the reality is that more than 38% of invoices are not paid on time. Most A/R teams mitigate the impact of receivables to control past-due A/R by attempting to change payment terms, through Six-Sigma process design and technology adoption, however, the success stories are few and far between.

    The webinar presenters will share how research on more than 500 receivables projects has demonstrated that credit and A/R leaders are more likely to positively impact A/R KPIs if they start with an assessment of their collections operation maturity. Assessment parameters on such initiatives should include people, processes, data, collaboration and technology. The Collections Operations Maturity Model has been devised to help finance decision makers perform an in-depth evaluation of their current operations and identify clear next steps to advance up the maturity pyramid.

    In the upcoming webinar, Judy Bicking, Senior Trainer, IOFM, Bob Diana, Regional Vice President, HighRadius and CM Nayak, Manager - Solutions Engineering, HighRadius will discuss The Collections Operations Maturity Model and the best practices to manage and measure collections and fundamentally transform it from a reactive process to a proactive one.

    Judy, a 27-year Johnson & Johnson Global Business Services veteran, was first recognized as a leader in credit management and then as a pioneer and leader in procure-to-pay. Bob has more than fifteen years of experience in workflow automation for the credit to cash space and is currently managing a HighRadius team covering the east coast while also developing partner relationships. CM has half a decade experience in consulting with companies including Nike, Mars and Commercial Metals customers on large receivables transformation projects.

    Startups from around the country pitched their ideas to a panel of healthcare and technology professionals

    Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 01, 2017

    On October 30th and 31st, 2017, AngelMD hosted a startup pitch event during the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) 2017 Scientific Assembly. The pitch event, which was held as part of the incubatED section of innovatED, highlighting eight early stage healthcare companies from around the United States.

    AngelMD is an investment platform and network where physicians and investors have the opportunity to analyze, advise and invest in companies that show high potential for success in the healthcare field. ACEP’s focus on new technologies was an ideal match for AngelMD, and allowed ACEP members unprecedented access to the next generation of healthcare innovators.

    “The critical nature of emergency medicine lends itself perfectly to new and better ways of working,” said Tobin Arthur, CEO of AngelMD. “The teams selected to present at ACEP were selected from a much larger field of applicants, and we look forward to working with each of these winners as their companies gain traction in the market.”

    Each day, four of the companies had the opportunity to present their ideas to a team of five emergency medicine expert judges, with the audience acting as the sixth judge. The teams were competing for a cash prize from TMCx, the healthcare innovation accelerator arm of the Texas Medical Center, as well as a spot in the center’s 2018 cohort.

    The Digital Health winner was EvidenceCare from Nashville, TN. The company focuses on delivering evidence-based protocols to providers and hospitals. EvidenceCare impressed the judges with not only their unique approach to the problem, but also their business acumen.

    The Medical Device winner was Forest Devices from Pittsburgh, PA. The company has developed a novel approach to stroke detection called AlphaStroke. The product can detect a stroke in as little as one minute, leading to dramatically reduced effects related to delayed treatment.

    Forest Devices is a graduate of TMCx, which opened the door to the third-place finisher in the competition to take the prize of a slot in the 2018 cohort. That honor went to Adroit Surgical. Based out of Oklahoma City, OK, the company has developed a patented method for securing difficult airway openings in emergency medical situations.

    “Our relationship with AngelMD was instrumental in pulling together this value-added piece of the annual ACEP conference,” said Sudave Mendiratta, FACEP (Fellow of the Emergency College of Physicians). “For emergency physicians, a spotlight on innovation is an opportunity to look into the future and see what the next generation of healthcare will hold.”

    The incubatED pitch event was held as part of a broader relationship between AngelMD and ACEP. The relationship gives ACEP members access to curated news, data, and content related to innovation in emergency medicine.

    Two Brightwater Chefs Will Be In Attendance.

    BENTONVILLE, Ark. (PRWEB) November 02, 2017

    Brightwater: A Center for the Study of Food, a division of NorthWest Arkansas Community College, is proudly sending two representatives, Chef Rob Nelson and Chef Michael Kuefner, to Russia’s MEGUSTRO expo November 7-9, 2017. Chef Nelson, a Brightwater board member, is owner/executive chef of Tusk and Trotter. Chef Kuefner is a professional chef and lead culinary instructor at Brightwater.

    Chef Nelson and Chef Kuefner will be highlighting their work on Zero Waste programs at the expo. Both chefs have worked with Zero Waste programs at the James Beard Foundation and implemented various techniques in their kitchens. As a matter of fact, Chef Kuefner established the Brightwater butchery program around the Zero Waste concept.

    “Our participation in the MEGSTRO expo represents an unbelievable opportunity to gain global inspiration and insight to bring back to NWA for benefit of NWA’s burgeoning culinary ecosystem,” Chef Nelson says. “I am extremely honored and thankful to be a culinary ambassador at this event for the USDA, and hope to represent them, the United States, my home region, and Brightwater well."

    MEGUSTRO is one of the largest events for the restaurant operators in Russia. The expo will include the latest trends, inspiration, new ideas, interesting communication, and creativity in the restaurant industry. It will allow chefs to showcase new knowledge, while highlighting professional speakers and speeches of experienced experts in the restaurant business. Brightwater was invited to attend MEGUSTRO through the USDA Trade Offices in Russia.

    “We are living through a critical moment in U.S.-Russia relations. While there are many areas of profound disagreement that are compounded by trade sanctions, the MEGUSTRO event offers a great opportunity for positive and mutually beneficial engagement,” David Leishman, Director of the U.S. Agricultural Trade Office in Russia, says. “Russia’s culinary community is developing rapidly, and we see great interest in American food and cuisine. As we invite Brightwater to Russia, we are helping to build bridges for the future. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is focused on developing market opportunities for U.S. products. Linking with importers, distributors and retailers, we are encouraging long-term relationships that will ultimately benefit American farmers and the U.S. economy as a whole. Prior to 2014, U.S. agricultural exports to Russia reached $1.5 billion, and every $1 billion in exports supports approximately 8,000 American jobs.”

    The key direction will be the inspiration unit, which will host the Chefs’ Challenge – a gastronomic show from international chefs and the owners of Red Michelin Stars such as Paul Pairet, Tristan Brandt, and Claudio Sadler.

    The expo will also be attended by chefs from Germany, France, Italy, Japan, China and Spain. Chef Nelson and Kuefner will also visit SwissAM, a culinary school there to explore potential partnerships with Brightwater.


    Brightwater: A Center for the Study of Food is a division of NorthWest Arkansas Community College located in Bentonville, Arkansas, that approaches food as art, food as wellness, and food as business to offer an entirely unique methodology to the culinary arts. Their goal is to develop leaders who combine culinary skills with the ability to recognize and address complex food issues.

    The development to the ITIL framework will take place in 2018AXELOS invites IT service management professions to contribute to the next evolution of ITIL

    HOUSTON (PRWEB) November 02, 2017

    AXELOS, the global custodian of ITIL, has today announced that it plans to update the world’s most widely-adopted framework for service management.

    The development of the updated framework will take place in 2018. While building on the established core of best practice in the existing ITIL guidance, the update will offer new and explicit practical content focusing on the optimum integration of ITIL with complementary practices, such as DevOps, Agile and Lean.

    True to the spirit that has always characterized the development of ITIL, this evolution of the framework will derive from the real-life experiences of thousands of specialists and experts. Contributors from the global ITSM community already include international brands, SMEs, governments, academics, training organizations and professional communities. Over 650 practitioners worldwide are now participating in ITIL’s Global Research Programme.

    Speaking at itSMF USA FUSION 2017 conference, Peter Hepworth, Chief Executive Officer of AXELOS, commented:

    “ITIL is a community-driven initiative, and I would now like to encourage IT professionals to join our Global Research Programme. This is their opportunity to contribute to and drive forward this latest evolution of the framework. They will take ITIL best practice into the future by ensuring that it continues to provide service management professionals with guidance that reflects the realities and demands of today’s rapidly evolving business environment.”

    AXELOS’s extensive research among the global service management community has shown that ITIL’s proven and tested framework remains the backbone of today’s business practices, crucially facilitating business transformation. Over a million IT professionals in the US rely on ITIL’s best-practice guidance to deliver business success, and each year organizations invest substantially in adopting ITIL, adapting it to their needs, and upskilling their people with ITIL qualifications. As a reflection of this, the update will continue to include the widely-adopted core principles of ITIL, which already deliver real value to organizations worldwide.

    Flexibility and agility have become a priority in recent years as organizations adopt new technologies and ways of working, such as cloud, increased levels of automation and digital transformation. That dynamic is behind the ITIL update: it will ensure that the world’s IT service management professionals can confidently integrate their essential ITIL knowledge with these new business practices.

    Peter Hepworth continued:

    “Over the last 18 months AXELOS has engaged with hundreds of experts in the service management community. They have affirmed that ITIL, with its proven framework, remains as relevant as ever. With this update we can build upon these strengths by making ITIL even more responsive, transparent and agile.”

    AXELOS’s research also demonstrates the value that the qualifications bring to ITSM professionals. The certificates are industry-recognized and are established as prerequisites for many IT careers. Recognizing this, AXELOS will ensure that the current ITIL qualifications remain valid within the new scheme.

    Cathy Kirch, President of itSMF USA, the organizer of FUSION 2017 and the leading independent professional forum for IT Service Management professionals in the US, commented:

    “ITIL is the most firmly entrenched ITSM framework in the infrastructure of large, complex organizations, with many – if not most – Fortune 500 companies using it. Currently, ITIL and complementary practices, such as DevOps, Agile, and Lean, are used successfully in conjunction with each other, however the next evolution of ITIL will promote and underpin dynamic collaboration.

    “itSMF USA actively supports this update. We recognize the importance of ITIL’s evolution: it is critical to ensuring that, as business environments change with increasing speed, service management professionals have the crucial skills to handle emerging technologies and adopt new practices.

    “We are keen for our members to feed into the ITIL Global Research Programme. This is about their role in creating an ITIL for the future, a framework which will continue to provide ITSM professionals with the resources to remain at the heart of business transformation.”
