Offorte’s AI Textwriter automates the writing of business proposals

BREDA, The Netherlands, 21-Jan-2021 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Discover how business proposals almost write themselves with the use of Artificial Intelligence in a new update from Offorte.com. Proposal software Offorte makes it easy to create business proposals using the new artificial intelligence functionality, which helps you write proposal texts.

The new tool generates texts composed based on your limited personal input. You can create a company, product, and service description, plus the option to rewrite your texts. Use the system to generate ideas and brainstorm together for a perfect result. Staring at an empty screen is a thing of the past.

Behind the screen, the most advanced AI technology in the world is used to your advantage. This AI model aims at producing natural language and is trained by reading trillions of words and sentences online. The technology is still in its beta phase and cannot yet substitute a human touch, but it comes close to the desired result. Business proposals feature many nuances, all of them essential to win a contract, and to process it in your bid, you need to look at it and fine-tune your text. The AI Textwriter helps to inspire, create and automate.

For Offorte, this is the beginning of a new chapter with new possibilities to help our clients even more in the process of writing a proposal. Each business has its unique driving power and character. Using data and analysis, it becomes possible to gain more insight into what works and what doesn’t, creating a proposal that retains its identity. Thereby you achieve better results and save a lot of time.

The ultimate goal is a scenario whereby an account manager explains the main points of a sales pitch, the client’s interests, and what the proposal must contain as parameters. The system then automatically creates a perfect proposal and provide further support in the sales process. Things haven’t progressed so far yet, but with the new Offorte’s AI Textwriter, steps are made in the right direction.

TIKTOK FOLLOWERS, VIEWS AND LIKES SERVICE

MIAMI, FL, U.S.A., 2021-Jan-15 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Not so long ago, a new service appeared in the field of TikTok promotion. And it is this service called TikTop that has proven itself quite Well. There are several reasons for this: over the history of its existence, it has gained a good reputation and, at the same time, offers services at quite pleasant prices compared to competitors.

Let’s see why this service is effective. So, the advantages:

The service allows Users to establish contact only with active users. Visiting Tiktoks, even adding videos from time to time, does not mean being active enough (from the point of view of an entrepreneur who promotes products, services, or just maintains their own content). But the video is uploaded by active users who are fond of Instagram.

Short stories. One video lasts a very short time. As a rule, users are not very attentive to short-term content posts, so they post several videos a day. And users can quickly view them.

First of all, profiles that TikTok thinks are interesting are displayed. However, viewing such pages is also more profitable for the buyer.

Only the video displays a list of people who viewed the content. But the person will not be able to find out who visited the profile.

And, finally, it is worth emphasizing once again that this service, as a method of attracting an audience and feedback from it, is still unknown to many. Therefore, users think that the owner of the TikTok account is actually gradually gaining popularity and is interested in content that attracts other users of the social network and encourages them to perform useful actions for clients (whether it’s likes, views , comments, or subscribers to the TikTok account).

What can the client get using the TikTop service ? And yet, what will be the result after performing the technique? Let’s look at what such a client can get in the end:

New subscribers. People who have viewed clients and those who are interested in the content offered by the user will subscribe to them. Most people watch interesting new videos anyway, so they are more likely to see the clients’ content directly. It only remains to flash in their field of view (this will be done by automatically attracting views).

The increase in coverage of the page. Even those who don’t subscribe to you will increase their reach – they will visit the page, put likes, watch videos, and leave comments. In General, even if the target audience does not increase, the page activity will increase, and this is also a positive result.

Attracting an active audience that is ready for action. Customers of the Tiktok service will not receive empty subscriptions, but they will attract those who often use TikTok and receive information from It.

A user interested in the TikTop service can choose one of the categories of people according to their target audience.

TikTop service is an unobtrusive advertising method. Now everyone knows that page subscriptions are made for profit. Comprehensive promotion is always effective, so if a customer is promoting their TikTok account, promoting the channel’s telegrams, if any, will be appropriate.

Another caveat: TikTop helps not only attract a new audience, but also keep the old one in touch. For example, your page is dedicated to music. The client is subscribed to by people who are not subscribed to by the client. Thanks to TikTop, the audience constantly watches videos of these users, again, very easily and unobtrusively reminding them of themselves. The person will go to the “interesting” section and see you when it is convenient for them. In the case of other services, pages are more Intrusive, often cause a negative reaction and refusal of the account owner to which the subscription is being made.

EMMY WINNERS GIVE KUDOS TO THECGBROS CGINSIDER PODCAST

Using an Animated Avatar of Himself, Digital Media Professional, Bill Johnston, Co-founder of the Popular TheCGBros YouTube Channel, Earns Praise for His Performance in a Video Podcast Preview Provided to a Special Panel of Members of the Voice Acting Academy.

SAN DIEGO, CA, 2021-Jan-06 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — TheCGBros, a Third-party aggregation YouTube Channel becoming an integral part of many short films’ release strategies, conducted a highly successful beta test of the first episode of their now-in-production podcast series, TheCGBros CGInsider Podcast. Bill Johnston, co-founder of TheCGBros YouTube Channel with his brother, Shaun Johnston, delivered the program content solo, in “talking head” format, but future episodes will see participation from Shaun and from influential guests, as well. Of special interest is that, although Bill spoke as himself, he did it through the novel medium of an animated avatar, possibly a first in the industry. The avatar was designed and executed by co-founder, Shaun Johnston.

The program content is intended for consumption by people with a wide variety of tastes and interests, especially fans of short videos. The subject matter will also be of general interest to students of CGI as well as both entry-level and professionals in the field. The premiere episode in the podcast series was released to the public on TheCGBros YouTube Channel at Midnight January 5, 2021. The series will be rolled out on other streaming platforms weekly on Tuesdays.

The test episode, which runs approximately 20 minutes long, is entitled “What is CGI?” Podcast titles scheduled for the remainder of January include: “Can You Describe the Different Jobs That Relate to Creating a CGI Film,” “Are There Examples of Current CGI in Films That Are So Well Done That They are Undetectable?” and “How Can I Get a Job in Gaming?”

The venue used for the test was an online weekly meeting of the Voice Acting Academy’s “Conductors Club” (VAACC.) The VAACC is a membership support service open to voiceover talent at all levels of experience for the purpose of helping them to advance their voiceover career and to help them get more work. Membership in the VAACC includes weekly live coaching sessions directed by Voiceover Guru, James Alburger, who says that the monthly cost of membership is a lot less than the usual cost of a single hour of private coaching. ConductorsClub sessions are conducted using Zoom, a cloud-based peer-to-peer software platform app that allows virtual video and audio conferencing, webinars, live chats, screen-sharing, and other collaborative capabilities. Information on VAACC is available at https://voiceacting.com/conductorsclub.

The test involved a three-member panel of long-time members of the VAACC. Participating in the test were James Alburger, Tom Daniels, and George Asteri. Senior member of the panel, James Alburger, of San Diego, author of the book commonly used as a required text in college-level voiceover classes, “The Art of Voice Acting,” now in its 6th edition, asserted, “That’s really nice. Very interesting, very thorough, very effective.” Alburger is an 11-Time Emmy® Winner for Sound Design, and owner of The Voice Acting Academy and CIGMA Media. He is also an Engineer, Voice Acting Coach, and Executive Producer/Director for Film, Video, and other media. Alburger operates the websites VoiceActing.com and at cigmamedia.com. Panelist Tom Daniels averred, “That was awesome. Very informative and entertaining. It held my attention all the way through. What surprised me most was that the first use of computer generated imagery dates all the way back to 1958 in the Alfred Hitchcock film, Vertigo.” Daniels is an Emmy®-winning Voice Actor/Executive Producer who lives in Massillon, Ohio. You can listen to Tom’s sound demos here TomDanielsVoiceDemos and reach him at tomdanielsvoice@gmail.com. The third member of the panel, George Asteri, opined, “That was an excellent summary and gave a really good understanding of CGI. It really informed me.” Asteri, who lives in Saginaw, Michigan, has been acting for his entire life. As a Shakespearean trained actor, Asteri has performed on stage with such notable stars as Christopher Walken in Richard II, and Nicholas Pennell in Richard III. He has also played leading roles in many stage plays, including Shakespeare’s Hamlet. As a voice actor, Asteri has voiced national, local and cable commercials, shared his narration talent with a large Michigan school district film production, narrated for audiobooks, and has made several recordings for Internet clients. Asteri operates a website at https://www.GeorgeAsteri.com where he has provided his email address and telephone number.

Bill, when asked to describe his company’s vision for entering the wildly-expanding, somewhat chaotic podcast marketplace responded, “Well, we believe that mounting up a podcast series not only continues, but builds on our long-standing mission, which from Day-One has been to curate the highest quality professional-level CG content from around the world, as well as to provide insights and inspiration to our two main constituencies: the producers of video content and the consumers of that content. Simply stated, we help the second group — the consumers — by providing them with high quality video content, and we help the first group — the producers of video content — or as we call them,‘New Media Producers,’ by providing them access to a ‘destination site’ where members of the second group can come and discover their works. And by destination, we mean, specifically, a proven, well-established place, with a great reputation for streaming quality videos, where people who love our content know they can come to see outstanding videos that were created with the ‘blood, sweat, and tears’ suffering (not to mention loss-of-sleep) of artists with great talent but with little-to-no prospects to obtain timely significant Media Reach on their own. The proof is in the pudding — as we speak, we have more than 3.5 Million subscribers to our channel; that number is increasing by approximately 40,000 per month, and we are averaging more than 20 million views per month. And, we’ve aggregated almost 1.25 Billion views since we launched our channel. These statistics don’t tell the whole story, of course, but they put us, according to SocialBlade, the social media statistics website that tracks and measures growth, near the top 4,000 in YouTube subscriber ranking and near the top 3,000 in YouTube video view ranking.”

Responding to a further question, “How, specifically, will your podcast series contribute to the accomplishment of your mission,” Johnston explained, “As a forward-looking company in the entertainment business, we’re always on the alert to detect changes that are happening in the entertainment marketplace. What we’ve seen is a growing trend that people want more engagement with great Internet sites that they have gotten to know and have grown to love. Given the rapid increase in the number of podcasts available in the marketplace, we figured a podcast would be a great way, not only to meet our fans’ desires for a higher level of engagement with us, it would also be a great way for us to enhance the value we can add to providing curated videos to our viewers. We are also creating the company infrastructure necessary to support a fan club. We think that will provide even more of the engagement
that fans want.”

Bill Johnston is an established Digital Media Professional with 22 years of experience, the last 18 years within the console-gaming industry. There, he has been involved in Creative Direction/Supervision, Project/Team Management, Dynamic Simulations, and Fluid Dynamics involving Rigid Bodies and Soft Bodies, Particles, and Sprites.

Sportsbooks Getting Ready for NFL Super Bowl LV

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Dec-15 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Although the NFL Season has had some hiccups, sportsbook software providing organizations are preparing for the most important day of the year. Companies like Costa Rica based PayPerHead.com have already released promotions designed to help their customers gain as much profit as possible on the 2021 Super Bowl.

Year in and year out, the Super Bowl accounts for the most betting revenue of any single sporting event. The betting handle on the Super Bowl is worldwide. Massive amounts of money are wagered on Super Bowl Sunday. Estimates range from $5.0 billion to $5.6 billion.

The total bet on the 2020 Super Bowl, where the Kansas City Chiefs rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the San Francisco 49ers, came in at $5.2 billion. The amount represented a 6% increase from 2019.

Gamblers living in the United States placed at least $270 million on Super Bowl LIV. With the prospect of a game between two popular teams this season, PayPerHead expects their customers to see even more significant revenue.

The Kansas City Chiefs and 2020 Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes have the best record in football. The popular Pittsburgh Steelers have a record that equals Kansas City’s. Over in the NFC, the Seattle Seahawks, New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers all appear capable of making it to the NFL’s championship game.

The biggest stars in the NFL are quarterbacks, and most contenders for this season’s Vince Lombardi Trophy are led by big name quarterbacks. Drew Brees plays for the Saints, Aaron Rodgers leads the Packers, Tom Brady crouches under center for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Ben Roethlisberger plays for the Steelers, and Russell Wilson is Seattle’s quarterback.

Las Vegas books and sportsbook software agents are drooling over the prospect of a matchup between Kansas City and Mahomes and either the Saints, Buccaneers or the Packers. Quarterbacks for all four teams will make it to the NFL Hall of Fame, and the idea of a head-to-head matchup between the future hall of fame quarterbacks has everyone excited.

One of those excited individuals is Nate Johnson, PayPerHead’s Product Manager. Johnson said the company’s latest promotion would help non-agents jump-start their sportsbook businesses.

The company’s newest promotion allows new agents to pay $3 per head from when they sign-up until Super Bowl LV on February 7. Johnson said that the promotion gives new agents a chance to use all of the company’s bookie software, including their in-game betting, live dealer casino, and digital casino platforms.

“Players, a sportsbook operator’s customers, are most active from the NFL Playoffs to the Super Bowl. We want to give them a sense of how we’re better from their current software provider or introduce them to pay per head and how it can help them make more money,” Johnson said.

He added that most sportsbook owners who sign up with PayPerHead had no idea how much more the company had to offer. “I’ve gotten calls from agents who signed up with us marveling at how much more money they’ve made. That makes us want to fight even harder to help our customers succeed.”

eFax investiert in neues EMEA-Kanalprogramm um die digitale Transformation in ganz Europa zu beschleunigen

DUBLIN, 23-Sep-2020 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — eFax, die weltweit führende Online-Faxlösung, gibt heute den Start eines neuen EMEA-Kanalprogramms bekannt, das die Unterstützung von Vertriebspartnern und Kunden verstärken soll, um die digitale Transformation in ganz Europa zu beschleunigen.

Das neue eFax-Partnerprogramm bietet den EMEA-Vertriebspartnern Zugang zu einer breiteren Palette wertvoller Dienstleistungen und Ressourcen, die ihnen helfen, neue Umsatzmöglichkeiten zu generieren und gleichzeitig wertvolle Online-Faxlösungen anzubieten, um die Initiativen der Kunden zur digitalen Transformation in der gesamten EMEA-Region zu unterstützen.

Das neue EMEA-Kanalprogramm bietet eine Reihe von Tools zur Unterstützung loyaler Partner, darunter führende Telefongesellschaften, Unified Communications as a Service (UCaas), Managed Services, Systemintegratoren und Gesundheitsdienstleister, die ihren Kunden Cloud-Fax-Plattformen zur Verfügung stellen wollen, wodurch ein umfassenderes Netzwerk hoch engagierter Partner entsteht. Das Programm unterstützt eFax-Vertriebspartner mit wertvollen Cloud-Fax-Plattformen, Dienstleistungen und Beratungen, die benötigt werden, um die Umstellung auf cloudbasierte Faxkommunikation im Rahmen von Initiativen zur digitalen Transformation zu beschleunigen und die Leistung von geschäftskritischen Anwendungen und Abläufen zu gewährleisten.

Zu den entscheidenden Vorteilen des Programms für Partner gehört die Möglichkeit, auf die eFax-Expertise und Dienstleistungen in gehosteten Unified Communications as a Service (UCaas) und in gehosteten Private Branch Exchange (PBX) Systemen zuzugreifen und diese anzubieten. Partner können ihre Expertise im Bereich der Cloud-Kommunikation erweitern und sicherstellen, dass Kunden für die Zukunft innovieren können, indem sie von Faxgeräten und Servern vor Ort auf die Cloud umsteigen und HIPAA/HiTrust-Sicherheitskonformität gewährleisten.

„Wir bei J2 sind sehr erfreut, unser Vertriebspartner-Programm in ganz Europa einzuführen. Wir sehen eine großartige Gelegenheit, mit führenden Telekommunikationsunternehmen, UCaas, Managed Services, Gesundheitsdienstleistern und Systemintegratoren zusammenzuarbeiten“, sagte John Mannion, VP Alliances & Strategic Partnerships von eFax bei J2 Global

„Kunden stehen heute mehr denn je unter dem Druck, ihre Betriebsabläufe durch Cloud-Services zu verbessern, die papierlastige Prozesse ein für alle Mal beseitigen, die Zusammenarbeit verbessern und die Datensicherheit garantieren“, führte John Mannion, VP Alliances & Strategic Partnerships von eFax bei J2 Global, fort. „Unser eFax-EMEA-Kanalprogramm unterstützt wertvolle Partner bei der Bereitstellung von Online-Faxlösungen, die es den Kunden ermöglichen, ihre Mitarbeiter an entfernten Standorten zu unterstützen, ihre Abläufe besser zu verwalten und diese Anforderungen zu erfüllen.“

Die Partner können eine neue Ebene an Expertise und Wissen erreichen, damit sie zu Experten für die cloudbasierte Faxkommunikation werden können. Mit der Unterstützung dieses Programms können Partner erhöhte Einnahmemöglichkeiten identifizieren und generieren, um ihr Unternehmen beim Wachstum zu unterstützen.

„Wie wir beim nationalen Gesundheitssystem NHS im Vereinigten Königreich gesehen haben, ist es nicht so einfach, das Faxen als Kommunikationsinstrument ganz abzuschaffen, wie es auf den ersten Blick scheinen mag. Organisationen müssen sich stattdessen nach alternativen Technologien umsehen, die die Kommunikation aufrechterhalten, aber auf eine modernere und sicherere Art und Weise“, sagt Scott Wilson, Director of Service von eFax bei J2 Global.

eFax investit dans un nouveau programme de distribution dans la région EMEA

DUBLIN, 23-Sep-2020 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — eFax (http://efax.co.uk), la solution de fax en ligne leader au niveau international, a annoncé aujourd’hui le lancement d’un nouveau programme de distribution dans la région EMEA, visant à renforcer le soutien apporté aux partenaires de distribution et aux clients afin d’accélérer la transformation numérique en Europe.

Le nouveau programme d’eFax fournira aux partenaires de distribution de la région EMEA l’accès à une plus vaste gamme de services et ressources afin de les aider à générer des opportunités de revenus tout en offrant d’importantes solutions de fax en ligne visant à accompagner les clients dans leur transformation numérique dans l’ensemble de la région EMEA.

Le nouveau programme de distribution EMEA propose une gamme d’outils conçus pour soutenir les fidèles partenaires, notamment dans les secteurs de la télécommunication, des communications unifiées en tant que service (UCaas), des services gérés, des intégrateurs systèmes et des prestataires de soins, engagés à fournir des plateformes de fax dans le Cloud à leurs clients, permettant ainsi de créer un réseau plus complet de partenaires fortement engagés. Le programme aide les partenaires de distribution d’eFax avec les plateformes de fax dans le Cloud, les services et conseils nécessaires pour accélérer le passage aux communications par fax basées dans le Cloud, dans le cadre des initiatives de transformation numérique visant à assurer le bon fonctionnement d’applications et d’opérations essentielles aux activités.

Les avantages clés du programme pour les partenaires incluent la possibilité d’accéder et de fournir des conseils et services d’eFax dans des systèmes hébergés par des communications unifiées en tant que service (UCaas) ou par un autocommutateur téléphonique privé (PBX). Les partenaires peuvent intensifier leur maîtrise des communications dans le Cloud et assurer que leurs clients puissent innover à l’avenir, en passant des fax et serveurs sur site à des systèmes dans le Cloud et en garantissant la conformité aux normes de sécurité HIPAA / HiTrust.

« Chez J2, nous sommes ravis de mettre en place notre programme de partenaires de distribution à travers l’Europe. Nous pensons qu’il s’agit d’une incroyable opportunité de s’associer à des leaders dans les secteurs des télécommunications, des services gérés, des prestataires de santé et des intégrateurs systèmes » a déclaré John Mannion, VP Alliances et Partenariats stratégiques, eFax chez J2 Global

« Maintenant plus que jamais, les clients sont soumis à la pression d’améliorer leurs opérations via des services dans le Cloud, éliminant les processus lourds en papier une fois pour toutes, de parfaire la collaboration et de garantir la sécurité des données » continuait John Mannion, VP Alliances et Partenariats stratégiques, eFax chez J2 Global. « Notre programme de distribution eFax dans la région EMEA aide d’importants partenaires à fournir des solutions de fax en ligne permettant à leurs clients d’habiliter leur personnel travaillant à distance, de mieux gérer leurs opérations et de répondre à ces exigences. »

La structure à niveaux du nouveau programme de distribution de la région EMEA permet également aux clients de mesurer facilement la capacité d’un partenaire à exécuter des activités liées aux services. Les partenaires peuvent atteindre de nouveaux niveaux de compétence et de connaissances, ce qui les aidera à devenir des experts dans le domaine des communications par fax basées dans le Cloud. Avec le soutien de ce programme, les partenaires peuvent identifier et générer davantage d’opportunités de revenus afin de stimuler la croissance de leurs activités.

« Comme nous l’avons vu avec le NHS, au Royaume-Uni, supprimer entièrement le fax comme mode de communication n’est pas aussi simple qu’il y paraît. Les organisations doivent plutôt envisager des technologies alternatives conservant ce mode de communication, mais de manière plus moderne et sécurisée », a déclaré Scott Wilson, directeur des services, eFax chez J2 Global.

Plus d’informations concernant le programme pour partenaires eFax dans la région EMEA, y compris les critères et comment devenir partenaire de distribution eFax en Europe, sont disponibles sur :

This Year’s NFL Season Could Be One For the Ages

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Sep-09 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Although questions about how COVID-19 will affect the NFL remain, most football fans, analysts, players and coaches have turned their attention to the start of the 2020 season. The defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs host the Houston Texans in the first official game on Thursday, September 10. From September 10 to January 3, the National Football League hopes to play seventeen weeks of uninterrupted football before turning their attention to the playoffs and the Super Bowl.

The new season means more to pay per head bookies than it may to anyone else other than NFL players. Even during years when the NCAA has a Men’s College Basketball Tournament, betting handle drops off 20% to 30% after football season.

Now that the NFL is back, bookies, especially, are excited about the upcoming season and Payperhead.com is seeing an increase in new agents. One experienced bookmaker said that 90% to 95% of his revenue comes from NFL betting. “I provide wagering services to fifteen people. They all bet on pro football. So, am I excited about the upcoming season? I’m enthralled!”

The coronavirus pandemic has already made the 2020 NFL Season unique. Many teams won’t play in front of fans. Teams that will allow fans, like the Atlanta Falcons, won’t play in front of full capacity stadiums. The lack of fans shouldn’t affect play on the field, as most people will be at home this winter watching the games across the country.

What could happen on the field is why so many are thrilled about this upcoming NFL season. It’s difficult to remember a time when an impact player like Tom Brady left his current team. Brady decided to leave the New England Patriots, a squad he won six Super Bowls with, to play for Bruce Arians and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Not only did Brady leave the Patriots but he ended up in the same division, the AFC South, as Drew Brees. The New Orleans Saints quarterback holds five NFL records. Brees and Brady face-off in Week 1 on Sunday, September 13.

Another quarterback battle has developed in the AFC. Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes won the 2018 NFL MVP. The Baltimore Ravens’ Lamar Jackson won the 2019 award. Mahomes and Jackson are the favorites to win the 2020 Most Valuable Player Award. Also, their respective teams are the two favorites to win this year’s Super Bowl.

Tampa Bay and New Orleans in the NFC, along with the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys, should spend all season jockeying for playoff positioning. In the AFC, the New England Patriots, who signed 2015 MVP Cam Newton to replace Brady, and Baltimore’s chief rival, the Pittsburgh Steelers, also figure to challenge for the conference championship.

As NFL Season Draws Closer, Bookies Switch to New Software Providers

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Aug-20 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Although the coronavirus pandemic represented a bump in the road, the Global Sports Betting Market is on track to reach $155.4 billion by 2024. The trajectory, which represents a compound growth rate (CAGR) of 8.8%, can mostly be attributed to a couple of sports. By far, international sports bettors wager on soccer. In the U.S., football is the players’ betting sport of choice.

As the online sports betting continues to grow more bookies are looking for more established software companies like Payperhead.com to grow their businesses. Pay per head agents, those who use bookie software to run their sportsbooks, can expect the NFL to generate 2020 revenue in line with what they saw in 2019. In some cases, this NFL Season may generate more since players remain hesitant about visiting brick and mortar betting establishments.

Every year, the National Football League’s annual Super Bowl attracts the most wagering dollars of any single event. In 2018, the Super Bowl generated $158 million in handle. Some sports bettors wager exclusively on NFL football games. Their biggest bet of the year is on the Super Bowl.

Although the Big Ten and Pac 12 won’t have football this fall, the SEC, ACC, and Big 12 will. Also, the NFL is on track to start their season on time in September. The lack of Big Ten and Pac 12 games should have a negligible effect on football betting numbers. Most sports handicappers will turn their attention to SEC, ACC, and Big 12 college games.

Some pph sportsbook agents have already started the push for football wagering dollars. One agent who wished to remain anonymous said that he sent out the NFL’s opt-out list to his players a day after the league released it to the public.

The National Football League told players that they had until August 6 to opt-out of playing in the upcoming season. Players were compensated either $150,000 or $350,000 depending on their opt-out reason. On August 7, a per head agent copied the list and emailed it to his players. “I wanted to give my players information that can help them plan for the season.”

Customer care isn’t the only thing the agent did. He recently switched pay per head software providers, moving to a shop that offered credit card transactions. “Some of my players didn’t want to meet in person. Now, all they must do is use the system to pay me via credit card. I can also make payouts directly to their cards, which makes them happy.”

Although credit card transactions were the most important aspect that led to the switch, the bookmaking agent said that wasn’t the lone reason. “My players don’t wager much on NBA and MLB. So, I didn’t see much of a change in revenue. But losing the NCAA Basketball Tournament was huge. That’s my second best profit generator.”

“I had to find a pay per head shop that made it easy for me to import my players and offered more than my current provider did,” the agent said.

The agent added, “I don’t mind paying a higher per head fee because I can’t take the chance. I’ve got to try and make up the lost college basketball tournament profit with football betting.”

Bookies Clamoring for Safe and Secure Ways to Collect and Get Paid from Players

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Aug-07 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — After the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act in 2018, U.S. based organizations created online sportsbooks to compete with offshore sportsbooks, also called post-ups.

Now the times have changed and as the local bookie business starts to gain in popularity, so do the demands of satisfying the players. And it’s PayPerHead’s proprietary Agent Payment Solution that is making it safe, convenient and practical for bookies from all walks of life to manage and grow their businesses.

Individuals have also become online sportsbook owners. In addition, existing bookies have taken their operations to the Internet. In most cases, bookies have become “pay per head agents”. A pay per head agent uses software to run their online sportsbook company. But although the software does some things well, most pay per head software struggles to meet agent needs.

Bookies must figure out on their own how to collect or pay players. In a social distancing age, that can cause major delays and disruptions in a bookie’s sportsbook operation. Not only that, but bookies cannot compete with offshore post-ups because they must keep their services at a local level.

Created in 1997, PayPerHead, a leading pph sportsbook software provider, has developed a mobile online payment interface, the Agent Payment Solution (APS®). PayPerHead’s agents can pay or collect from players via the APS in a matter of seconds. The APS works like PayPal but unlike PayPal, agents that use the APS mustn’t pay exorbitant fees.

The social distancing advantages are obvious. PayPerHead Product Manager Nate Johnson, though, said that’s just one advantage the Agent Payment Solution provides.

Johnson explains that, “We want our agents to be safe first of all. And not only that, but the APS allows agents to expand their businesses. It’s a mobile agent and player payment system that allows our agents to say, ‘Hey, you can pay and get paid in the same way as any offshore post-up operation.’ That allows our agents to increase their player footprint, which means they grow their sportsbook businesses, which means they make more money. Also, they don’t have to be restricted to the same area and can recruit players in other ways.”

Johnson noted that players can send money to their agents via credit cards, Bitcoin, eCheck, and even Moneygram. He added that PayPerHead believes the APS will revolutionize the pph sportsbook industry with its seamless technology. “With the APS, it’s all about confidentiality and security. We’ve created the PayPal for our industry. The difference is that the APS doesn’t charge a fee for every transaction the way PayPal does. In addition, our agents can make as much money as they want because they can promote their sportsbooks to players all over the world if they wish.”

Also, Johnson said the Agent Payment Solution provides peace of mind. “It’s a great thing to know that you’re going to get paid safely and securely. We’re the first and only to come up with an answer to that question, the most important question that pay per head bookies have. With the Agent Payment Solution, all our customers must do is go onto the system, go to Pay Me, then continue to the payout process and that’s it.”

Bitcoin Proof of Stake – BitcoinPoS – BPS

Dallas, TX, USA, 2020-Aug-04 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — The Bitcoin core network today runs on the proof of work algorithm. It leaves the network open to the 51% attack, also it is costly to mine and harmful for the environment. The PoW mechanism has also been a hindrance to scalability.

However, numerous innovations are trying to deal with the issues, facing the Bitcoin network while preserving certain unique aspects of the original concept. For instance, the 21 million tokens supply along with the proven code-base that has been improved over a decade is worth preserving.

The Bitcoin Proof of Stake coin reserves the strongest aspect of the Bitcoin network with a flexible proof of stake algorithm. It presents a new paradigm in the utility of crypto. The Bitcoin PoS coin preserves everything that Bitcoin has while bringing new development to the blockchain technology.

Driving Mass Adoption
When Satoshi Nakamoto launched Bitcoin about a decade ago, his goal was mass adoption of crypto that would replace the current financial system. However, that goal has not been achieved. Many crypto projects in existence today have numerous issues that prevent mass adoption.

The Bitcoin PoS project aims to advance Satoshi Nakamoto’s vision of a decentralized financial network that is independent of centralized control. Bitcoin Proof of Stake is designed to be scalable and easy to use. The goal is to give access of banking services to billions of people globally. To achieve this, Bitcoin PoS aims to be a coin for ordinary retail payments.

About the Proof of Stake Mechanism
The Bitcoin network is secured using a proof of work mechanism. However, the PoW mechanism is energy-intensive and requires expensive mining rigs to secure. The proof of stake mechanism wants to replace how consensus is achieved. Instead of using PoW, the staker that generates a block has to provide proof that they have access to given number of coins.

Generating the block will entail the sending of coins to oneself, which proves ownership. The amount of coins needed for staking is determined via a difficulty adjustment model that is similar to the PoW mechanism. The goal is to ensure an approximate constant block time. Just like PoW, the block generation process will result in rewards via a transaction fee and supply model.

Bitcoin PoS Deals with the Bitcoin Centralization Problems
The Bitcoin network appears perfect to its proponents. However, it has a problem with centralization. The high cost of power and the expensive mining rigs mean that only a few select companies can afford to mine the BTC network.

The result is that only those with access to cheap power can secure the network. Today, most of those miners are located in China, which has led to a high concentration of mining power in one region. In effect, Chinese miners control the Bitcoin network. It was not the vision of decentralization that Satoshi Nakamoto had in mind.

To make the issue worse, the places where the cost of power is low also have highly authoritarian systems of government. Another issue is that in nations where the cost of power is high do not recognize BTC mining as a business. Thus, miners do not get access to subsidized power. It has led to the proliferation of mining cartels with some companies controlling as much as 5% of the mining power.

For retail miners, the only solution is to join mining pools, which effectively control all of the mining power of BTC. As a result, BTC is highly centralized in the current setup and it will only continue being centralized in the future.

Bitcoin PoS Solves the Issue
One of the issues that Bitcoin Proof of Stake solves is the cost of power. The proof of stake mechanism cuts the cost of power by 99%. As a result, it ensures that it will difficult from any entity to monopolize the network. The result is that Bitcoin PoS is achieving the vision of Satoshi Nakamoto.

The Current State of Bitcoin PoS
While Bitcoin Proof of Stake uses a proof of stake mechanism, the Bitcoin PoS still keeps up with upgrades to the Bitcoin network. Any upgrade made by the developers are added to the Bitcoin PoS blockchain. Today, the coin is tradable on crypto exchanges; it has a market price of USD 89.07 according to data on CoinMarketCap. It has a market cap of $308,995,384 and it is ranked at 40 by market cap in the world but actual raking on coinmarketcap.com is 205 because of their raking systems.

New listings on different platforms and exchanges will come.

Billionaire Richard Branson Called a Trademark Bully by the Trademark Law Professors of University of Washington, School of Law

Westborough, MA, 2020-Jul-30 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Virgin has targeted to attack over 300 small companies & non-profit charities. Common sense says that the word ‘virgin’ cannot be owned by one individual or organization but Virgin has deep pockets to destroy those who dare to fight for their rights.

“Opposing trademark registrations in unrelated fields is the classic behavior of a trademark bully,” says Mike Atkins, an attorney at Atkins Intellectual Property who teaches trademark law at the University of Washington, School of Law.

That’s why it came as a surprise that Branson decided to send a threatening cease-and-desist letter (where he tells the small start up to either commit a business suicide right away or else Virgin lawyers will destroy it within 30 days) to I Am Not A Virgin, a small eco-friendly denim label, claiming that the company’s name infringes on his copyright, as the Telegraph’s Laura Hubbert reported on the case.

Richard Branson’s lawyers demanded environmentally friendly start up jeans label ‘I Am Not A Virgin’ to cancel their trademark (a trademark they have been lawfully granted and owned for almost 4 years before they received the threat letter from Branson – reports Ms. HUBBERT in her article.

“I guess I could rename my jeans Not Made By Richard Branson” – comments sarcastically the founder of the brand. Branson also demanded the small business owner cease to sell current stock of the jeans and removes them from the stores which for a small business is a financial suicide and a loss of all start up investment costs essentially leading to the end of a business.

“Common sense says that the word ‘virgin’ cannot be owned by one individual or organization. In other words, it’s stupid to claim a colour of your own, let say a word. Branson, who’s also well known for his support of environmental causes, apparently has failed to see that” – says Anderson Antunes in his Forbes article about Virgin’s abuse on small entrepreneurs.

Attorney at law, Widerman Malek, summaries in his comments: “If Richard Branson has his way, it might be. ” He adds: “Although sometimes considered a bully in the trademark office, they remain unapologetic for their stance.”

According to multiple news reports, in the past several years, the Virgin group has targeted over 300 companies who used the word Virgin in their name, URL or marketing slogan. Unfortunately, many of these 300 companies are small businesses who do not have the resources to fight back against a multi-billion dollar company with hundreds or even thousands of lawyers on their retainer. These small businesses almost always settle simply because they cannot afford to fight.

Widerman Malek brings up some of the companies Virgin attacked:

  • Virgin Vapors – a small vapor company located in California whose owner currently refuses to change its name despite being threatened by Virgin.
  • The owners of domain names virginthreads.com, virginpublishing.com, virginstar.net, and virgincigar.com. The Virgin group alleges cyberpiracy for any company using the name virgin in their domain, even if it is not their business name.
  • Author Cristina Crayn, who named one of her published books, “Tales from the Virgin Vault.”
  • Virgin Valley Cab – a cab company in the Virgin Valley geographic location of Northwest Arizona, who recently came to an agreement with conglomerate to stop using the name.
  • Las Virgenes United Educational Foundation – a nonprofit organization in the Las Virgenes School District. The Virgin Group attempted to block the trademark application. Evidently, any virgin will meet their criteria – no matter which language it’s in and if destroying charities for children is to take place.
  • I Am Not A Virgin – a New York clothing company which specializes in creating and selling denim products.
  • Virgin Air, a small airline in the American Virgin Islands, which no longer exists under this name due to Virgin’s lawsuits.
  • CBS Studios, who may be opposed by the Virgin Group in an attempt to trademark the name Jane the Virgin, which they will use as a sitcom name.
  • Last year, the Virgin group attempted to stop Valle Grande from trademarking a phrase that contained the words “virgin olive oil”, using the argument that Valle Grande currently only sells vinegar.
  • In 2004, the conglomerate sued a tiny apparel retailer called Virgin Threads in federal court in New York; the retailer dropped the name a year later as they could not afford to battle with Virgin any longer.
  • VIRGINIC – Purity Perfected – small cosmetics brand, selling “beyond organic”, handcrafted, allergy-free face creams in small batches. Virgin has been suing them with malicious, aggressive litigations, on the ongoing basis from 2018-2020 in multiple countries to starve them financially to business death, as Virgin did with other start ups. Interestingly, Virgin abandoned selling cosmetics years ago making public statements on their own website that they have no intention to sell beauty products. As of July 2020, VIRGINIC still refuses to be bullied and to give up their name.

CDP Industry Update July 2020: revenue for 2020 estimated at $1.3 billion, 30% up YoY

SWARTHMORE, PA, U.S.A., 28-Jul-2020 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — The Customer Data Platform industry continued to grow in the first half of 2020, but at a slower pace as cautious buyers absorbed pandemic-related budget cuts and assessed new entries from enterprise software vendors. The CDP Institute’s semi-annual Industry Update found a record number of new vendors entered the industry but that growth in employment and funding was the lowest in two years.

The CDP Institute estimates industry revenue for the 2020 at $1.3 billion, a respectable 30% increase of $1 billion in 2020. Enterprise software vendors listed for the first time include Adobe, Microsoft, Oracle, and SAS. These firms were added because they now offer products that meet the CDP Institute’s RealCDPTM standard. Estimated 2020 sales for these vendors are modest but are expected to grow rapidly in future years.

In all, a record twenty-two vendors were added to the report. More than half were U.S.-based and the majority offered campaign management and message delivery in addition to the core CDP function of building and sharing unified customer profiles. Most of these were large, established companies that were adding CDP to existing products. A minority were small, new companies that with products designed as CDPs from the start.  These were more likely to be based outside the U.S., with particular growth in Europe.

The period also saw a sharp slowdown in investment activity, with only one major acquisition (Evergage purchased by Salesforce) and one large funding round ($45 million for mParticle). There were no significant acquisitions made by CDP vendors and no CDP vendors left the industry. The preceding six month period saw six major funding events, three acquisitions of CDP vendors, four acquisitions by CDP vendors, and four CDP vendors ceasing to exist.

“The CDP industry was entering a transitional phase even before the pandemic, with increased competition from CDP capabilities embedded in larger systems,” said CDP Institute CEO David Raab. “The pandemic has accelerated this development and put increasing pressure on small CDP developers. But the need for CDP capabilities remains strong and many firms are prioritizing CDP investments as they prepare for the post-pandemic world. We expect that industry growth will accelerate as economic activity picks up and buyers have a chance to assess the new options that are now becoming available.”
