Zuuse to acquire GCPay, a leading North American provider of construction payment applications software

Melbourne, Australia, 2018-Aug-15 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Zuuse has entered into an agreement to acquire GCPay.com (GCPay), a leading North American provider of cloud collaboration software aimed at streamlining the payment applications process in the building and construction industry.

The acquisition will provide Zuuse with a critical toehold in its largest global market, with almost 40,000 users of the software platform in the USA, including General Contractors, Owners, Developers, Financial Institutions, Government Agencies, Engineering and Architectural Firms, and Subcontractors.

Together with complementing its Payapps cloud collaboration platform in the APAC and EMEA markets, GCPay will help strengthen the Zuuse global product portfolio in the building and construction software sectors.

The GCPay software solution is consistently aligned to the Zuuse strategy and customer base, offering a strong standalone solution as well as integrations with Sage and Viewpoint construction ERP systems, and aligning with other partners.

Zuuse CEO, Jason Lilienstein, said, “This is an exciting acquisition for Zuuse and brings us a major step closer towards becoming a leading global provider of construction and building operations software. The integration of GCPay’s market leading technology will consolidate our position as an industry leader in cloud collaboration payment applications software to the global construction industry, together with further establishing our presence as a leading disruptor in the broader, high-growth AECO (Architecture – Engineering – Construction – Owner Operations) market.”

Systems and processes in the AECO sector are still largely fragmented, manual or paper based, and these inefficiencies result in customers losing time, money, information and resources. Lilienstein, added, “Today’s announcement further exemplifies the customer-centricity and the power of Zuuse, in providing construction and building operations software solutions for our customers which tackle these inefficiencies head-on, working with everything from day to day operational issueson the construction and building site, to long-term strategic asset and facility management issues.”

GCPay COO, Daniel Brunelli, said, “The coming together of our companies is an excellent outcome for all of our stakeholders and most importantly for ourcustomers. The combination of our businesses provides both parties with the expertise, scale and reach needed to provide our customers what they need, when they need it, anywhere in the world.

As a part of the broader Zuuse business, GCPay will be better equipped and resourced to deliver greater value to customers, including extending our existing product functionality as well as broadening our product offering to better fulfil the evolving needs of the growing construction industry. We are tremendously excited by the prospect of what Zuuse and GCPay can achieve together, and I look forward to sharing these benefits with our customers.”

The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and is anticipated to be completed in the third quarter of calendar year 2018.

First-ever study of the European CDP industry analyzes 21 vendors employing more than 1,500 people and generating at least €130 million revenue in 2018

Philadelphia, USA, 11-Jul-2018 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — European vendors in the soon-to-be €1 billion Customer Data Platform (CDP) industry are leading its transition to more integrated solutions, according to a study released today by the CDP Institute Europe.

The first-ever study of the European CDP industry analyzes 21 vendors employing more than 1,500 people and generating at least €130 million revenue in 2018. European firms account for one-quarter of worldwide CDP employment. Vendors covered in the report are: BlueConic, BlueVenn, Boxever, Camp de Bases, Celebrus/D4T4, CommandersAct, ContactLab, CrossEngage, Eulerian Technologies, Fospha, IntentHQ, Invicta, Jahia, LeadBoxer, NGDATA, Nominow, Piwik Pro, PRDCT, RedEye, Splio, and Ysance.

While most of the industry outside Europe sells products limited to database creation and analytics, the majority of European CDP vendors include these functions plus integrated applications such as Web site personalization or email message selection. Systems with these applications have generated nearly all industry growth worldwide in the past year, according to the CDP Institute’s recent analysis of the global industry.

“European marketers have special needs, such as compliance with GDPR, that are often best understood by local vendors,” said CDP Institute Europe CEO David Raab. “Development of a European CDP industry will help more marketers take advantage of CDP’s ability to make full use of their customer data.”

Customer Data Platforms are specialized software that creates a unified, persistent customer database. The world-wide industry has grown 76% in the past year and is expected to exceed $1 billion by 2019. Gartner recently called CDP one of six top marketing technologies to watch in 2018.

Phonexa Exhibiting at Affiliate Summit East 2018

Glendale, CA, 2018-Jul-09 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Affiliate Summit, which hosts two events in the United States, in Las Vegas and New York, will be held at the New York Marriott Marquis from July 29-31. The two-decade-old global conference and tradeshow expects to host thousands of digital marketers from over 70 countries.

Key attendees typically include C-suite executives and top decision-makers from a variety of different industries all within the lead generation space. The individuals, agencies and service providers amass at Affiliate Summit to grow their network and learn from other industry experts.

Phonexa announced earlier this year that they are taking the lead in eliminating integration fees in order to create a more client-friendly business practice. The accumulated cost of API integrations is often a serious roadblock for companies who need to upgrade their existing systems. With the costs of integrations out of the picture, businesses can allocate more of their budget and effort towards creating better products and marketing campaigns. Phonexa’s client-focused business practice should be well-received at the 2018 Affiliate Summit East, as thousands of brand representatives and industry leaders collectively hunt for value-driven solutions.

The packed agenda at Affiliate Summit East provides each different attendee with relevant workshops, networking opportunities and valuable takeaways; equipping affiliates, networks, technology providers and digital agencies with the appropriate strategies and industry knowledge they came to acquire.

Russian mobile operator MTS successfully used iBwave Design to plan, design, deploy and manage modern high density and high capacity wireless networks for the WorldCup in Russia

MONTREAL, Canada, 06-Jul-2018 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — iBwave, the global standard for designing multi-technology in-building networks announced today that MTS, the leading telecommunications group in Russia, has successfully used iBwave Design to plan, design, deploy and manage modern high density and high capacity wireless networks for the 2018 Soccer tournament.

One of the main challenges during a major event like this is to be ready for the massive data demands put forward by excited fans using multiple devices in a stadium’s complex environment. To enable a fast, reliable fan experience during the 2018 Soccer, MTS Russia leveraged iBwave Design’s planning, propagation and capacity modelling features to quickly deliver one the largest deployments of Massive MIMO in Europe to date. iBwave Design was used to successfully plan and deploy high capacity networks for the following stadiums and surrounding areas: Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow (capacity: 80,000), Spartak Stadium, Moscow (capacity 45000), Rostov Arena Rostov-on-Don (capacity 45000) and Kazan Arena, Kazan (capacity 45000).

Through iBwave’s ability to design mobile networks in large complex venues such as stadiums, operators like MTS can create the ultimate wireless experiences by meeting the demands of a large number of people at a specific time without compromising on speed and quality. There is no margin for error in such an environment when the service is needed then and there without any disruption. Many players are needed to create this experience and iBwave’s design capability ties this all together. With iBwave on its team, MTS was able to deliver a great end user experience by leveraging design features such as signal and capacity modeling right down to inclined surfaces, complex architecture and body-loss calculations when the stadium is filled to capacity.

“It is always difficult to predict mobile consumer needs in high density, high capacity environments- particularly for a world class sporting event such this, where thousands of sports fans are simultaneously using multiple devices across multiple technologies,” says Seth Roy, Vice President Product Line Management at iBwave. “Based on our experience of connecting major sporting events such as past World Cups and the Olympics, our tools are the ideal choice to prepare for the huge amounts of data requirements during the 2018 World Cup. We are proud to support MTS in this project and extremely excited to be part of the design and deployment of Europe’s largest Massive MIMO experiences”, he added.

More than 3 million spectators are estimated to watch the games live during this month-long event, which is underway until July 15th.

Former Gartner executive Richard Stiennon on GDPR: organizations have to comply with the most intrusive technology regulation ever

PRAGUE, Czech Republic, May-1-2018 — /EuropaWire/ — ZOOM International, a leader in call recording, workforce optimization, and compliance software for the omnichannel contact center, today announced support for the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). By making simplicity, speed, and cost-effectiveness the goals of the release, ZOOM has created a new industry standard—companies who need to support GDPR in any region of the world don’t have to purchase and implement more software. GDPR support is a standard part of the ZOOM 6.3 Suite.

Former Gartner executive and Chief Research Analyst at IT-Harvest, Richard Stiennon, explained the scenario in a November 2017 article on Forbes, “The looming imposition of a new data protection regulation in the EU is already sending tremors through the legal and IT worlds as organizations wake up to the fact that by May 25, 2018, they have to comply with the most intrusive technology regulation ever. Law firms and consulting firms are starting to use phrases like ‘this is Y2K all over again.’”

Companies in and outside the EU are taking immediate action to make applications compliant while also planning for larger, cross-department initiatives in parallel. For any company (in any country) managing EU citizen data, fines can be as much as €20 million or 4% of global annual revenues. To add to the pressure, many WFO vendors force additional software purchases of complicated “compliance suites.” Unlike ZOOM, these companies add a burden, creating additional friction for their customers—forcing longer timelines for decisions, approval, and implementation.

“GDPR is a monster of a regulation for companies to tackle,” explained Brian Shore, CEO of ZOOM International, “So, we designed ZOOM 6.3 to simplify and streamline the effort it takes to achieve GDPR compliance. It also gives customers enough flexibility to evolve over time without becoming a beastly, bloated, and outrageously expensive application—like we see from many of our competitors. In addition, GDPR truly puts the ownership of data completely in the consumers’ hands, even allowing them to have all their data erased. To address this, companies really need quality management software more than ever. Perhaps they could afford to have upset customers in the past, but now it is much more expensive. GDPR will enable a different type of attrition than we have ever seen in the history of the world.”

Axiomatics offers fine-grained policy-based access control and dynamic data masking and filtering

CHICAGO, Oct-05-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Axiomatics, the leader in fine-grained dynamic authorization, today announced that KuppingerCole has profiled its data-centric dynamic authorization suite in a recent analyst report titled, “Executive View – Axiomatics Data Security.” The report sheds light on two flagship products; Axiomatics Data Access Filter for Multiple Databases and Axiomatics SmartGuard™ for Big Data, both of which apply an Attribute Based Access Control mechanism across different types of data stores, and centralizes policy-based authorization rules for access to the content within these data stores.

KuppingerCole’s Executive View describes the solutions in detail and offers advice to IT professionals looking for data-centric security. The Axiomatics Data Access Filter offers policy-based access control and dynamic data masking and filtering for relational databases. Implemented as a database proxy, the product intercepts all connections to the database from any user or application and analyzes every SQL statement for potential violations of applicable security policies. In accordance to the ABAC approach, the authorization service may query multiple attribute sources for additional context information needed for a fine-grained access decision.

SmartGuard™ for Big Data (the most recent addition to Axiomatics’ data security portfolio) extends ABAC-based dynamic authorization to Hadoop Big Data stores. There’s a growing need to ensure consistent fine-grained access control and maintain regulatory compliance for Hadoop. These infrastructures often comprise multiple loosely coupled components, and Big Data stores are used to store massive amounts of data from numerous sources with multiple applications accessing them simultaneously. Utilizing ABAC for transparent dynamic access control to a Big Data store for multiple analytics applications allows enterprises to combine all the benefits of a single data warehouse with the traditional siloed approach, where each application has access only to its own data silo.

“For years, we have been tracking the information security market. As data security threats rise, Axiomatics continues to lead by offering solutions that help companies with fine-grained policy-based access control and dynamic data masking and filtering. Axiomatics Data Access Filter for Multiple Databases and Axiomatics SmartGuard™ for Big Data are a natural expansion of the company’s comprehensive suite of dynamic authorization solutions,” said Alexei Balaganski, lead analyst for KuppingerCole and author of the report. “Whether deployed standalone or as a part of an enterprise-wide ABAC infrastructure, these products provide an additional dynamic security and access control layer around multiple data stores transparently and without any application changes.”

“Our relentless focus on solving the toughest problems in data-centric security, have made Axiomatics the choice for IT professionals and companies looking for data security solutions to complex big data environments,” said Gerry Gebel, vice president of business development at Axiomatics. “We are honored to have such a distinguished analyst like KuppingerCole continue to review our suite of products. Their reports further underscore its commitment to delivering cutting-edge information on data security in the era of digital transformation.”

Domain registry GlobalR.com: Georgia’s .GE ccTLD represents an unrivaled opportunity for German business owners

GERMANY, 09-Aug-2016 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — The success of thousands of German businesses is in jeopardy, hindered by the oversubscribed domain extension .DE. Soon, there will be no domains left for new businesses to register.

As the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Germany, the .DE domain extension represents a booming online marketplace serving a domestic population of over 82 million. The third most popular top-level domain (after .COM and .TK) the .DE zone has very few short or dictionary word domains left available. In no time at all, those looking to register their business online will have to choose between obscure names, misspellings, or random word combinations to secure a domain in the .DE zone. Their customers will never find them.

This is a serious problem that has the power to halt the growth of the German e-commerce industry, but there is a small group of marketers working tirelessly to address it – and they’ve found a solution.

According to GlobalR.com, a domain registry specializing in .GE domains, the entire English-speaking world knows Deutschland as Germany. To them, .DE is irrelevant and Georgia’s .GE ccTLD is the obvious choice for native German businesses. With barely 30,000 registered domains in the .GE zone, this under-utilized ccTLD represents an unrivaled opportunity for German business owners, giving them their pick of domain names and a ccTLD the majority of consumers automatically associate with Germany.

Pipemetrics taps into the emerging market trend for higher quality Windows software

Lausanne, Switzerland, June 25, 2015 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Overwhelmingly positive user response confirms strong demand for well-crafted Windows software.

Pipemetrics (http://www.pipemetrics.com) marked the first year on the market of its flagship product Bvckup 2 (http://bvckup2.com/) by announcing that an analysis of user engagement data shows substantial and growing demand from Windows users for higher quality standards.

Windows has been traditionally associated with software that focused on the technical elements first and the user experience second.

Founded in 2012, Pipemetrics was set up with an altogether different take on Windows software. By marrying industrial system engineering with nuanced visual and interactive design, the company develops software that is as lean and powerful as it is beautiful.

This month marks the first anniversary of the release of Bvckup 2 – the first embodiment of company’s design principles. A simple, single-purpose, yet sophisticated and performant local backup software for Windows.

“When we launched Bvckup 2 we wondered whether our high-end engineering philosophy would be accepted by users,” explained company’s founder, Alexandre Pankratov. “After all it’s not uncommon for Windows software to compete on how many things a product does rather on how well it does them. After the release, we were very pleased with the positive reviews in the media, but what completely caught us off guard was the avalanche of compliments received from actual users.”

Conceived for professional, enterprise and advanced home users, the functional power of Bvckup 2 is harnessed through a precise and intuitive interface to deliver a robust user experience.

“This overwhelmingly positive reaction shows that a growing number of Windows users recognize and look for software polish as a feature in its own right. Windows users’ expectations are changing; simply having lots of options is no longer enough.”

Sample of user feedback*
“Bvckup 2 is one of the best pieces of software I’ve used in the last 35 years. Does what you said; solves my problem; Fast.” Michael Fuller

“A truly beautiful, precise and well-executed piece of software.” Riyad Kalla

“Simple, minimalistic, yet so powerful.” Ivan Kolevski

Product information:
Bvckup 2 (pronounced “Backup 2”) is a mirroring data backup software for Windows. Select a pair of directories and the app will make sure that one stays an exact copy of the other. It is light, uncomplicated and includes a comprehensive array of supporting features. It is also incredibly fast.

Company information:
Pipemetrics SA is a Swiss company founded by Alexandre Pankratov, formerly of the Hamachi VPN project, acquired by LogMeIn after growing to 3 million users in 18 months. The company draws extensively from his experience combining advanced engineering and interface design to produce simpler software for complex tasks.

Create High-Speed Professional Broadband with Eutelsat’s Spotbeam Architecture

Giving you the Earth

Paris, France, June 01, 2015 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — In the internet age and a world of global business and efficiency, Eutelsat Broadband is a company which epitomises a unique yet simple idea. If you want out of this world connections, you have to go out of this world. At the vanguard of satellite technology since 1977, Eutelsat has now turned its innovation and expertise to becoming the best internet service provider of modern professional networks, by thinking outside the box. Eutelsat Broadband use Europe’s largest High Throughput Satellite, the KA-SAT satellite; which, by employing spotbeam architecture (82 spotbeams, to be precise), allows the re-usage of frequencies as many as 20 times. This multiple re-use of frequencies increases bandwidth potential to a size heretofore considered unimaginable – a feature that is quickly becoming indispensable to modern businesses. The Eutelsat Broadband team also recognises that each modern business is both wide-spread and unique, and therefore works with you to construct the perfect professional connection that best serves the individual needs of your company. This permits you to customize different parts of your network according to the different divisions and locations of your company, allocating specific proportions of bandwidth to specific areas. In other words, Eutelsat Broadband can create and provide your perfect professional network – you just have to describe it to them first!

Eutelsat Broadband’s reputation precedes it in the world of high-speed professional internet networks. Having already collaborated with companies in an impressive array of sectors, from banking security to secluded tourist campsites to emergency services. Eutelsat Broadband services have also proved both invaluable and revolutionary to the global media with their NewsSpotter. Given that transmissions are sent and received via a satellite above the Earth, the KA-SAT enables, quite literally, a bird’s eye view of the Earth. The NewsSpotter makes the most of the KA-SAT’s impressive data gathering techniques and incredible geographic precision, focusing them on allowing those who work in media to share updates and footage efficiently and economically, regardless of transmission size. The idea is simple and powerful – nowhere on Earth is too isolated.

…And Keeping it Protected

Of course, the modern global business must also be an environmentally conscious one, and environmental protection is an ethos that goes hand in hand with the Eutelsat Broadband technology and methodology. Besides the obvious convenience and simplicity of the idea of using the KA-SAT satellite and spotbeam technology, there are profound consequences for our planet’s wellbeing. The system eliminates the necessity of cumbersome terrestrial infrastructures and landlines, ergo also dramatically decreasing both your company’s carbon footprint and expenses – which can be something of a rare combination!

Furthermore, leaving no trace on Earth with your internet network also ensures you an extremely valuable protection against Earthly disasters which often compromise internet connections, communications and access to data. With its VPN system, modern and global enterprises and professional partnerships remain united wherever they are and whatever happens on Earth. With transitions to and from the satellite powered entirely by solar panels (what power source is more reliable than the sun?), Eutelsat connections have the double advantage of being more powerful, more infallible and simultaneously more protective of the Earth.

In short, long distance and inter-branch communications, transmissions and data storage can weather any storm with Eutelsat Broadband.
