Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) April 15, 2014

Verian, the leader in helping organizations achieve world class cost control, recently introduced the newest version of its comprehensive purchase to pay software suite, revealing several ease of use innovations.

In Verian’s latest solution suite, customers will benefit from effortless online shopping, quicker real-time reporting, panoramic labor scheduling, expanded materials transfer capabilities, and numerous additional enhancements.

“We are attuned to the needs of our customers and our market”, said Tehseen Ali Dahya, President and CEO, “We are excited about our latest release, and how it helps our customers achieve their goals.”

Easy Online Shopping Experience

Verian‘s ease of use makes procurement tasks as simple as online shopping. End users quickly learn and adopt the Verian system because it requires minimal training to shop for needed items and efficiently complete requisitions.

Verian’s newest purchasing software innovations make catalog-based requisitioning even easier by visually enhancing catalog searches, expediting navigation of search results, and enhancing convenient shopping cart features. These user interface advances deliver a more engaging user experience while continuing to produce maximum efficiency in the end-to-end requisitioning process.

Reporting at the Speed of Thought

On-demand access to real-time financial reporting is critical to effective decision-making. Verian provides spend intelligence reporting that helps organizations get more accurate visibility into all spending and exercise better control. Verian’s latest release broadens data acquisition by delivering reporting at the speed of thought, enabling parallel report execution, and production of large, complex reports while simultaneously continuing multiple tasks in the system without slowing down.

Visual Labor Scheduling Optimizer

Tracking work order spending is especially difficult for large organizations with many locations. These organizations often have widely dispersed teams of technicians that must address service requests for many different sites, making it hard to assign work in a way that optimizes travel time and work load.

Verian rises to this challenge by delivering an innovative visual labor scheduling optimizer in its latest solution suite that provides a calendar of all assigned work orders by technician and vendor, along with the ability to schedule work directly from the calendar view. This new functionality allows service coordinators to use a panoramic view of all available resources to optimize scheduling and reduce travel and overhead costs.

Expanded Materials Transfer Capabilities

Tracking materials transfers is a time-consuming manual process for many companies, particularly in the oil and gas industry. In order to keep pace with aggressive exploration and production schedules, materials transfers are often executed first, and then recorded later in an attempt to balance financial records. This inefficiency limits visibility of available inventory at yards, well sites, and warehouses, and leads to cost overruns, unnecessary spending, and inaccurate financials.

Verian has helped many companies overcome these challenges by automating and streamlining materials transfers, improving global inventory visibility and spending controls. Verian’s newest release speeds the specialized materials transfer process, enabling quicker transfers in the system and faster user adoption in the field.

Numerous Additional Enhancements

Verian’s latest P2P software suite also includes many additional innovations that speed invoice tracking, expedite GL budget visibility, expand standard reporting, and improve convenient user-specific messaging capabilities.

Complimentary Webinar – Verian Expands Ease of Use – A Guided Tour

Verian has now opened registration for Verian Expands Ease of Use – A Guided Tour, a complimentary webinar in which market specialists will provide a guided tour of Verian’s latest release and all the new features.

Silver Spring, Md. (PRWEB) April 16, 2014

According to author J.B. Ralph, the innate uniqueness and idiosyncrasies makes it a challenge to communicate with everyone while treating them as though they were all the same, especially in the classroom setting, where teachers have discovered that stimulating every child’s thinking process and helping them to find the truth in their reality can be very difficult. This is where Ralph’s picture book comes in, by giving children and adults a fun-filled shared learning experience that will take them inside “A Kid’s World.”

Ralph’s books are vehicles of unrelated little stories, vignettes and observations that portray a child’s awe, dream-like wonder and simple descriptions of the world and its inhabitants. These descriptions dovetail with the author’s mission to entertain, to educate, and to attract and stimulate his young audience’s interest in examining dreams, fantasies and other influences in their lives. The author calls it the “interesting process of gaining maturity and sophistication.”

A child can certainly gain a message different than that on the mind of the author. It is a type of teaching technique through reverse psychology, one that utilizes a child’s connecting to reality while he or she still is unfamiliar with many things. It is a purpose wonderfully circumscribed by this provocative juvenile reading experience.

By portraying “A Kid’s World,” Ralph hopes that even the youngest child will be stimulated to be thinking, evaluating, and might even be saying, “That’s not me. I don’t have to believe that, and I would never say or do that. I’m not a child anymore.” Through this, Ralph aims to help them take a real step on the road to maturity, facilitating their personal growth and development through shared experiences with their parents, family members and teachers.

Santa Fe, NM (PRWEB) April 15, 2014

Film and festival producer Film 4 Change has partnered with Santa Fe University of Art and Design (SFUAD), Christopher Foundation for the Arts, and The Screen at SFUAD to present CineVision, a student-run festival of film and animation held May 1-4, 2014 on the university’s campus. Festival ticket proceeds will benefit a film production fund that SFUAD’s aspiring student filmmakers will compete for in the Fall.

The inaugural CineVision Film Festival will showcase a collection of animations from Mexico and New Zealand; documentaries and narrative films from the film festival circuit; “Hateship Loveship,” a dramatic feature starring Kristin Wiig; “Cinema Six,” an indie comedy directed by a Taos, N.M. native; SFUAD Film student and alumni work, as well as a variety of filmmaker panels. “Joe,” directed by David Gordon Green and starring Nicolas Cage and Ronnie Gene Blevins, will open the festival on Thursday, May 1, with Blevins also in attendance for a Q&A with the audience.

“CineVision is an incredible opportunity for students to curate and study contemporary independent film while interacting in meaningful ways with their peers, industry leaders and celebrities,” said Rich Henrich, executive director of CineVision as well as Film 4 Change. “It’s an immersive, intensive educational lab packaged around a whole lot of fun over four days that will begin the bridge building process to their future careers and professional relationships.”

CineVision was first born from the FilmBizHub at SFUAD, a group of industry businesses that now have offices in the Film School, including Film 4 Change.

“Creating the FilmBizHub at SFUAD in Fall 2013 was another milestone for the Film School in terms of bringing relevant industry to campus offices right in the heart of where our students are studying to become filmmakers,” said Paula Amanda, associate chair of The Film School at SFUAD. “Film 4 Change has been an important FilmBizHub tenant that envisioned CineVision as an opportunity that enables our students to gain hands-on experience running a film festival.”

Santa Fe alumni and film directors Matt Page, Tristan Love and Seth Fuller will screen their films during the festival, with student filmmakers from SFUAD Film, the University of California Los Angeles, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, San Diego State, Santa Fe Community College and the Institute of American Indian Arts also presenting their work. Other CineVision Film Festival screenings include the 2014 Academy Award nominee for best short documentary, “Cavedigger,” which focuses on the art of Northern New Mexico cavedigger Ru Paulette; documentaries “Misfire,” detailing the rise and fall of The Shooting Gallery, and “Bipolarized,” one man’s personal journey battling bipolar disorder; the emotional emigration story “120 Days,” which takes an intimate look at a family’s decision on what to do after a judge gives a father 120 days to leave the country; as well as the provocative documentary “Sex(Ed) the Movie,” detailing the history, challenges and evolution of sex education inherent in the U.S. culture.

Panels include a New Mexico Lawyers for the Art- hosted panel, “Experiments in Space and Light,” that will discuss emerging media and SFUAD’s annual multimedia light festival Outdoor Vision Fest; a Santa Fe alumni panel that will give students advice on getting a start in today’s film industry, among others.

SFUAD students with a valid ID will receive free admission to the festival. Individual festival tickets are $ 10 per film, or $ 20 for a four-day, all-inclusive pass to CineVision Film Festival screenings, panels and discussions.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 15, 2014

Tina Turbin, the acclaimed author and founder of, has formed a relationship with Honeyville, supplying Easter and Passover recipes using the company’s Blanched Almond Flour. Tina has been using the flour for many years in a number of her celebrated gluten-free and paleo recipes which are broadly shared across the internet and in paleo gluten-free magazines.

“I am honored to be collaborating with such a fine company,” Tina says about this recent relationship and collaboration. “The Blanched Almond Flour is pure, delicious, and easy to use. It has dramatically improved the quality of many of my recipes. I will choose it over others based on what outcome I am going for in a particular recipe.”

The Blanched Almond Flour is Honeyville’s bestselling item. It has been featured in blogs and cookbooks across the nation as one of the best gluten-free almond flours available. Tina was originally introduced to the company years ago by fellow gluten-free and paleo advocate Elana Amsterdam, the New York Times Bestselling author. “Elana said that the company’s blanched almond flour may get me the results I was going for and could not say that about other almond flours out there,” Turbin says. “Well, she was correct! I have been using this particular flour in many of my own recipes where I choose to use almond flour and want a particular texture, and one that is not cross-contaminated is a must!”

Honeyville’s Blanched Almond Flour is certified gluten-free by the supplier at under 10 ppm, and Honeyville retests again before repackaging the flour to ensure that it falls under their own strict standards of under 10 ppm. “This is purity in my eyes,” Tina says about the low-carb and nutrient dense flour. “I respect Honeyville for addressing this issue thoroughly and openly with the public.”

“We’re very excited about this relationship with Tina,” says Zak Elcock, Social Media Specialist, Honeyville, Inc. “Tina brings a vast knowledge of celiac disease, grain free, gluten free living, as well a connection to the paleo community that you can’t find anywhere else. Her dedication to delicious healthy recipes, her expanded knowledge, and overall advice are quite commendable.”

According to Elcock, Honeyville’s Blanched Almond Flour is the best almond meal available on the market. Because it is gluten-free and kosher, this low-carb flour is great for paleo and health conscious diets and for gluten-sensitive or celiac individuals. Tina’s personally developed Easter and Passover recipes for Honeyville and they will be featured on Honeyville’s blog at

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 15, 2014

TDWI Research has released its newest Checklist Report, Using Next-Generation Analytics to Gain Value from Enterprise Reports: Six Best Practices. The report examines how enterprises can understand the value of analytics, view its enterprise content management system as a report warehouse, and think through analyzing content from their reports.

Increasingly, companies are recognizing the value of data as a competitive differentiator, and it’s no longer only structured data that holds value. “The reality is that valuable data about a company’s business and its customers is found in reports as well as in less-than-structured documents,” notes the report’s author, Fern Halper. “Often this kind of data is stored in a company’s enterprise content management system … [which] is a way to collect, store, and organize company documents and other sources of information.”

In fact, Halper writes, “Content management systems often contain huge amounts of customer-facing reports, such as financial statements, billing invoices, healthcare patient records, or statements of benefits. These reports typically include numerical data.”

Halper begins the report by discussing the value of analytics—the process of transforming data into insights. She points out that in a recent TDWI report, nearly half (45 percent) of respondents utilizing predictive analytics measured a positive top- or bottom-line impact. Halper also discusses the benefits of unstructured and semi-structured data to analytics.

The TDWI Checklist Report explores the role of a content management system as a report warehouse as well as a treasure trove of data contained in those reports, both time-sensitive and customer-facing data. Halper explains that the “data that was in static reports is now ‘live’ data that can be analyzed in several ways, including ad hoc reporting, data discovery, and time-series analysis.

“Our Checklist Report helps enterprises understand the vast array of analytics tools available to explore report data, and why it is important that organizations not forget about governance, especially as it relates to data quality and data access,” says Halper.

This research was sponsored by Datawatch Corporation.

San Carlos, CA (PRWEB) April 15, 2014

SAN CARLOS, CA and Redmond, WA — ReadyPulse, an enterprise content commerce company, announces the close of their series A investment round raising $ 2 million in funding. Lead investors include: Divergent Ventures, Harmony Capital, Moxie Software, and Angel Investors from Seattle and Silicon Valley. Todd Warren from Divergent Ventures, and Tom Kelly, Former Moxie Software CEO, joined ReadyPulse’s Board of Directors.

“Divergent Ventures was excited to lead the round. We believe ReadyPulse has already begun to change marketing with customer generated content,” said Todd Warren, Divergent Ventures. “Brands and online retailers are realizing that their best user content drives commerce, and ReadyPulse is in a perfect position to lead the market with excellent customers, a great team and patented technology.”

ReadyPulse is driving commerce within action sport, fashion, media, entertainment, and subscription businesses by uncovering, curating and displaying a brand’s best and most relevant social content — like photos, videos, reviews and more — from their most popular sources and brand ambassadors, and adding in the filters of permission and compliance.

“ReadyPulse is literally changing the face of digital marketing,” said Dennis O’Malley, ReadyPulse CEO. “Brands have been relying on organic content without explicit user permissions or contest disclosures, which leaves them vulnerable to compliance issues. What we do differently is we put the permissions in the hands of the actual brand ambassador, and allow our brands find the highest quality, product relevant, authorized social content from those opt-in ambassadors — and then we deliver our customers many ways to display that content in a targeted, personalized and compliant manner, enabling brands to confidently put their customers front and center of their marketing.”

ReadyPulse works with over 60 brands including GoPro, Reebok, O’Neill, Smith Optics, and Red Wing Shoes. ReadyPulse tracks millions of social interactions on a daily basis, and assigns a Pulse Score, an indicator of quality, to the social content and users, so a brand can curate their best content from the overwhelming amount available. Brands rely on the Pulse Score to drive engagement, and revenue that results in a 10X ROI on average.

“We chose ReadyPulse due to its unique combination of analytics, content development abilities and the fact that ReadyPulse integrates very well with other programs and platforms that our company uses,” said Kimberly Balega, Red Wing Shoes Interactive Marketing. “The response to the ReadyPulse display by our fans and internal teams has been excellent and we are continuing to find new and unique ways to utilize the services ReadyPulse provides.”

Pulse Marketing Suite is backed by a patented algorithm that enables the identification of a brand’s best digital influencers, and actively recruit them as opt-in brand ambassadors. Pulse Marketing Suite is unique in the fact that it is an end to end solution for large brands, focusing not only on displaying the content that’s already available about a brand, but also focusing on managing the people who have the potential to create the best content for a brand.

About ReadyPulse

ReadyPulse is an enterprise content commerce company using patented technology to drive commerce with the highest-quality, brand relevant, authorized social content produced by the most influential brand ambassadors. On average, brands are seeing a 10X ROI from leveraging Pulse Marketing Suite to associate social content to their products in eye-catching collections that can be displayed on e-commerce sites, social sites, mobile apps, and in-store displays using an API or iFrame code.

(PRWEB) April 15, 2014

Our brand-new Insurance Telematics Report 2014 provides a broad overview of the events and changes that brought us to this point and what we are likely to see in 2014 and beyond.

Drawing on in-depth interviews with more than 30 insurance industry executives in both North America and Europe, Telematics Update’s regular coverage of the industry and two proprietary surveys, the report illustrates how these events and changes influenced the thinking of insurance industry executives when it comes to business models and the potential benefits of UBI for both insurers and the insured.

It shows how maturing telematics technologies and advances in portable devices are driving the evolution of UBI from the mileage-based Pay As You Drive (PAYD) model to the highly interventionist Manage How You Drive (MHYD) model. And it highlights the fact that it is no longer just traditional insurers who are emerging with UBI products.

Compared with last year’s report, the fully updated Insurance Telematics Report 2014 introduces a number of new or expanded themes.

It pays a great deal more attention to the many new entrants to UBI and what new roles they are carving out for themselves. It features expanded sections on consumer engagement, with new chapters on gamification and social media. Finally, it deepens last year’s insights into established UBI markets and provides new information on up-and-coming markets. Canada features particularly prominently this year.

San Pedro, CA (PRWEB) April 15, 2014

In the midst of a record breaking year, California’s Largest Restaurant, San Pedro Fish Market will welcome the Travel Channel and its Special “Seafood Paradise” for a live television taping on Tuesday, April 22 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

“As exciting as this news is, and it is very exciting, we want to make sure that all of our regular customers and fans come join us so that we can show just how much fun San Pedro Fish Market is for families and friends,” said Mike Ungaro, Vice President of San Pedro Fish Market. “This will be a great opportunity for families to get on television as the Travel Channel crew will be interviewing diners and getting lots of crowd shots.”

So far this year, San Pedro Fish Market is well ahead of its record breaking 2013 which saw it welcome more than 1 million diners.

“We have spent many months of study and it is clear from traffic engineers, social media, and online interactions that we have regular visitors from 37 states and multiple countries,” explained Ungaro. “Our family has made the Fish Market our focus for six decades, so it is incredibly gratifying and we want to share that with our fans on April 22, so get here!”

On Tuesday, April 22 from early morning past lunch, the Travel Channel will have a multi-camera crew working with the San Pedro Fish Market staff to tell the story of the world famous Fish Market and its unique recipes that have earned literally almost 6,500 five star reviews from customers.

Founded in 1957, San Pedro Fish Market & Restaurant has grown into a top rated destination on the LA waterfront whose seafood, Lonely Planet described by saying, “Seafood feasts don’t get any more decadent than at this family-run harbor-view institution.” Routinely serving more than 19,000 diners each week, San Pedro Fish Market is also one of the most recognized brands in the frozen food section of more than 750 premium and mass market supermarkets across the Southwest and Hawaii where consumers can pick from four microwavable versions of our world famous shrimp tray.
