Onsite Utility Services Capital Certifies Energy Audit Automation

In partnership with EMAT Field Auditor software to Speed up the Accuracy and Turn-Around Time while Reducing Costs by 50%

DELAVAN, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Onsite Utility Services Capital (OUS Capital) has formed a strategic partnership with EMAT for certifying their EMAT Field Auditor software doing ASHRAE Level I and II audits and report generation to help companies identify energy conservation measures.

EMAT Field Auditor leverages cutting-edge mobile and web technology to help auditors and organizations improve their bottom line by spending less time and money conducting energy audits. Built by energy engineers for energy engineers, EMAT’s cloud-based software allows for quick movement through the entire energy auditing process.

“Our goal is to expand our energy audit capability across the country, with EMAT Field Auditor software being the model for speed, accuracy and cost reductions for performing audits,” says Fritz Kreiss, CEO of OUS Capital. “The EMAT software makes a tablet as the tool for the audit, replacing the antiquated pad of paper, pen, camera and maps. This results in cutting costs for these audits by as much as 50%.”

Once the data has been gathered on site, the data is instantly available on their EMAT System website, accessible from virtually anywhere, for use in performing energy modeling and analysis. “Through automation, we’re making Level II audits a smaller part of a project’s cost,” says Kreiss.

Companies interested in learning how this new EMAT audit solution can be used for their next ASHRAE audit can contact OUS Capital at info@ouscapital.com.

About Onsite Utility Services Capital
Since 1993, OUS Capital has been dedicated to unlocking the power of energy efficiency for hospitality businesses nationwide through innovative solutions that lower energy consumption, reduce energy spend, and increase profits. The company’s exceptional staff of energy experts look forward to helping hospitality properties accomplish their energy efficiency objectives through their Energy Savings as a Service program and can be reached at info@ouscapital.com.

EMAT began in 2014 when a group of energy auditors, frustrated by the inefficiency and chaos that was all too common in the typical energy audit process, decided that there had to be a better way. Understanding that advanced technology was the key, the auditors partnered with a company that had extensive experience with tablet-to-cloud technology and began to develop a software tool that would make the energy audit process more streamlined and efficient, less stressful, and save them time and money. They can be reached at info@ematpogram.com.

New “Divorce Navigator” Generates All 20+ Mandatory California Divorce Forms

Divorce is a $50 billion industry in the US, with the average cost of legal fees per person ranging from $18,000 to $27,000. At Hello Divorce, we’ve brought that cost down to $1,500 on average.”

— Erin Levine

OAKLAND, CA, USA, April 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The cost of starting your next chapter in California got a lot easier and a lot more affordable today thanks to Hello Divorce, with the launch of the Divorce Navigator. The new, first-of-its kind application empowers those going through divorce to complete the 20+ forms required for California divorce in plain language, on their own – without having to fork out tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees.

Divorce Navigator simplifies the process of completing and filing lengthy and often confusing divorce paperwork by walking users through an easy-to-understand guided interview. The app uses artificial intelligence and conditional logic to adapt to each individual completing the form, asking only those questions that are relevant to the user, based on each previous answer. Individuals can work at their own pace and save their responses at every step. Should they need help at any point in the process, they can access legal help from experienced lawyers and legal document assistants, on demand, at a transparent flat-rate fee. When the form is complete, with the click of a button the user’s answers are transferred onto the California divorce forms that pertain to their case. Users can print this official paperwork with instructions and a checklist for how to file on their own, or they can hire legal help at a flat rate to file on their behalf.

Anyone can use the basic version of the Divorce Navigator for free, which includes step-by-step guidance through the divorce process as well as resources and articles to help support each step. The form-generating feature is provided with a $99/month DIY Divorce membership, which also includes unlimited access to explanatory video content.

The app is the brainchild of Hello Divorce founder Erin Levine, a Certified Family Law Specialist and owner of the Oakland-based Levine Family Law Group.

“Our goal is to make the law more accessible to the approximately 85 percent of Americans who cannot afford legal representation. Divorce is a $50 billion industry in the US each year, with the average cost of legal fees per person ranging from $18,000 to $27,000. At Hello Divorce, we’ve brought that cost down to $1,500 on average,” said Levine.

Divorce Navigator makes paperwork easier, but divorce is more than just paperwork. Hello Divorce is a full-service online platform that is changing the culture of divorce by making it more accessible, transparent and humane.

“While divorce can be a difficult, stressful process, it doesn’t have to be a negative one. After all, divorce is not who you are – it is simply where you are,” said Levine, adding, “We understand that people going through divorce have a lot on their plate. The logistical complexities of divorce can feel overwhelming and paralyzing. We’ve worked so hard to streamline the process, eliminate the stress and unknowns and provide people with step-by-step guidance and affordable, flat-rate access to top-notch lawyers who are available when you need them.”

Helion Technologies Partners with California New Car Dealers Association to Educate Dealers on Privacy Act Compliance

Helion Technologies Logo

Helion Technologies

For most dealers, compliance will require significant upgrades to their software, hardware and data security equipment.”

— Erik Nachbahr, Founder and President, Helion Technologies

TIMONIUM, MD, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Helion Technologies has partnered with the California New Car Dealers Association (CNCDA) to educate dealers on how to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). The sweeping new privacy law takes effect in January 2020, imposing new data security standards on dealerships located in California, as well as third-party vendors that access and/or store customer data from these dealerships.

In a nutshell, the CCPA requires businesses to implement "reasonable measures" to protect consumers' personal data. The CA Attorney General defines “reasonable measures" as compliance with 20 controls established by the Center for Internet Security.

"For most dealers, compliance will require significant upgrades to their software, hardware and data security equipment," said Erik Nachbahr, president and founder of Helion Technologies. "Additionally, dealerships will need to implement internal processes designed to keep data safe, and provide their employees with security awareness training."

"CNCDA is excited about our new partnership with Helion and the technical expertise they will bring to our members. We are committed to supporting the necessary outreach and critical education so that California dealers better understand the legal requirements of the CCPA, as well as the most cost-effective ways to keep their dealerships in compliance," said Brian Maas, president of CNCDA. "Helion's knowledge in data security and technology will be enormously helpful to our dealer members as they navigate bringing their networks up to CCPA standards."

The CCPA applies to any business that meets ONE of these requirements:

1) grosses $25 million or more in revenue
2) buys, sells or shares personal information for 50,000 or more consumers
3) derives 50% or more of its revenues from selling consumers' personal information

Many dealerships meet the first two requirements. In addition to dealers, the CCPA applies to third parties located outside of California. This means that auto manufacturers, dealership management software (DMS) vendors, CRM vendors, marketing vendors and any other entity that dealers share their customers' personal information with, must also comply with the new law.

The CCPA gives more rights to consumers related to how dealerships may collect and use their information. Once the laws take effect, upon a request from a consumer, dealers will be required to:

• Correct inaccurate consumer data
• Delete the consumer's personal data unless it's necessary to do business, as well as delete all of their data from the databases of third parties with which you've shared such information
• Restrict processing or sharing of information if the consumer objects to its usage for reasons not related to the purpose for which it was collected; such as usage in direct marketing
• Allow customers to easily opt-out of having their personal information sold to a third party

Dealerships are also required to proactively provide full disclosure to consumers about what their data is used for, who it gets shared with and for what purpose, at the time said data is collected.

Non-compliance may result in fines and a flood of litigation from consumers.

For more information about Helion, call 443-541-1500 or visit https://heliontechnologies.com/.


For more than 95 years, CNCDA has represented the interests of California’s franchised new car dealers. CNCDA members are primarily engaged in the retail sale and lease of new and used motor vehicles, but also provide customers with automotive products, parts, service and repair. Our members sold more than 2 million new cars and trucks in 2017 and employ more than 140,000 Californians, significantly contributing to our state’s economy. As the nation’s largest state association of franchised new car and truck dealers—with nearly 1,200 members—CNCDA serves its members by providing legal compliance and legislative, regulatory and legal advocacy. For more information, visit www.cncda.org.

Evolving employee engagement with Workforce Management (WFM)

Successful companies start with inspired people – Teleopti CEO, Olle Dűring, outlines 7 winning strategies to make your organization a great place to work

Teleopti has found that people need to work in a positive environment where they can continue to grow, remain engaged and be productive.”

— Olle Dűring, CEO, Teleopti

LONDON, UK, April 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — At Teleopti we agree with the saying “to win in the marketplace, you must first win in the workplace ”¹. This is especially relevant as employees often spend more waking hours with their colleagues than they do with their own partners or families so keeping them happy and engaged should be a top priority. We have found to achieve this, people need to work in a positive environment where they can continue to grow, remain engaged and be productive. However, the reality is many companies are experiencing a crisis of employee engagement and are simply not aware of it.

It’s time to apply the principles of Workforce Management (WFM) and here is our 7-step guide:

7 ways to raise the bar for employee engagement

1. Change the leadership culture – good leaders instinctively know how to inspire their workforce and reward their efforts. They have a systematic way to measure the results of their actions and they are committed to making engagement not just a thing you do, but an intrinsic part of what it means to be a successful company. Larger organizations might even seek to hire a dedicated person with engagement written into their job description, a new form of CEO or “Chief Engagement Officer”.

2. Communicate the strategic value of the individual – engaged people go above and beyond what is expected of them because they feel part of a purpose larger than themselves. For example, today’s customer service departments have a powerful role to play in sharing best-practice principles with the rest of the organization. Communicate corporate goals or business changes and demonstrate the strategic value each individual can bring to the overall success of the company. Next, use automated WFM technology to allocate quiet time with team members to exchange ideas and explore innovative ways of working in a relaxed, collaborative environment away from the pressures of serving customers.

3. Re-consider the benefits of flexible working – flexible working has come a long way since traditional full-time and part-time contracts or job-sharing. Career breaks, sabbaticals, Pay-as-you-go arrangements in the form of zero-hour contracts, compressed, annualized working hours and even Time Off Without Pay (TOWP) – why not test some or all of these options? Then use advanced WFM technology to balance and schedule different contract types and see the difference flexible working makes to employee satisfaction.

4. Empower employees with self-service – allowing people to take control of their work-life balance boosts engagement levels by reducing stress and absences. Liberate employees with a greater sense of independence, involvement and satisfaction by way of self-service options for preferred shifts, holiday requests and time off for medical appointments.

5. Think about infusing AI into the employee experience – consider deploying artificial intelligence methods such as Chatbots to enhance internal communication and employee morale. Cut back on time-consuming staff monitoring and instead use bots that learn from existing data to help people manage their work-life balance. These bots can hold conversational chats to quickly notify staff of potential time off or overtime and create an easy balance between optimized customer service operations and greater employee freedom.

6. Introduce fairness and transparency – automation promotes consistency and greater visibility of all WFM processes. High degrees of transparency and openness create a sense of fairness that appeals to staff while satisfying organizations with a strong Union or Works Council presence. Managers have the information they need to ensure all employees take it in turns to do the more unpopular shifts and plan vacation time equitably while employees have total visibility of each other’s schedules and time off through self-service.

7. Effective Change Management – organizational change can be traumatic for employees but recently, Teleopti customers like Germany’s biggest online retailer OTTO, have cited the strategic impact that WFM technology has on actively advancing corporate Change Management programs. The flexibility, transparency and collaborative nature of WFM technology have helped OTTO to strike a good balance between achieving high productivity levels (1,600 agents working 2 million shifts and 4,500 shift rotations – handling over 24 million enquiries per year) and transferring the program’s core values of empowerment and fairness into 15 virtual contact centers.

Make your company a great place to work. Learn how to power employee engagement with WFM. To find out more, download Teleopti’s latest white paper aimed at senior executives: “A Guide to Sustainable Business Success: Powering CX and Employee Engagement with Workforce Management”

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Drug developer Tosk, Inc. announced today that its patented drug, TK-90, which prevents the adverse side effects of frontline cancer therapies, succeeded in human clinical studies involving 25 head-and-neck cancer patients. TK-90 is the first drug discovered through screening using the common fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) to be tested in patients. The drug prevents mucositis, a painful, dose limiting, side effect suffered by many cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

“Fruit flies have played an important role in scientific research for generations,” said Brian Frenzel, Tosk’s CEO, pointing out that six Nobel prizes in medicine or physiology have been awarded to scientists based on their research using the fruit fly, the latest in 2017. “However,” he added, “Drosophila have not been widely used for drug discovery and development by the pharmaceutical industry. Tosk is an exception. Our scientists have developed two proprietary drug discovery platforms that use fruit flies to identify new drugs to combat cancer and other diseases.”

Tosk, like the Nobel prize winners, uses the fruit fly because it has surprising similarities to humans at the genetic and molecular levels. Adult fruit flies, for example, have body parts that mimic mammalian hearts, kidneys, digestive tracts, and lungs. Nearly 70 percent of human disease-related genes have analogs in the fruit fly. “Because the life cycle of a fruit fly is short, only 50 days from birth to death and only two weeks from birth to adulthood, drug discovery in flies can be done quickly and cost effectively,” Frenzel says. “Using non-mammals as a discovery tool may yield new drugs that could not have been found using other, more traditional methods.”
Tosk selected TK-90 out of tens of thousands of compounds using what the company calls the Side Effect Fly™. Tosk incubates test compounds with a toxic chemotherapeutic that would otherwise prevent eggs from hatching and developing. Compounds that increase survival and result in larvae or mature fruit flies are "hits." Hits are tested in cell culture models using human cancer cells to select "leads" that do not affect the cancer killing efficacy of the chemotherapy. Tosk’s researchers then move to traditional models to confirm safety, adverse effect prevention, and non-interference with the beneficial effects of the cancer therapy.
“Instead of picking a target and fitting compounds to match, as most pharmaceutical companies do, our scientists let the fruit fly tell us which compounds are safe and effective. We then work backward to identify the molecular target or targets through which the drug works, opening what we believe is an exciting new vista on the process of drug discovery.”

Tosk has innovated a second, perhaps even more important, drug discovery platform, which it calls the Genetically Modified Fly™. Tosk integrates a human disease gene into Drosophila and then tests compounds for their ability to block the activity of the disease gene. This model is designed to discover drugs for disease targets that have previously been considered “undruggable.”

In addition to TK-90, Tosk has three other new drugs in its pharmaceutical development pipeline. The most advanced is TK-39, which prevents the dose-limiting, permanent, and potentially fatal damage to the heart caused by doxorubicin and other widely used, frontline cancer therapies. Another side effect preventing drug is TK-88, which prevents permanent kidney damage caused by platinum-based drugs such as carboplatin and cisplatin. Both were discovered using the Side Effect Fly.
Tosk’s “cancer moonshot” program addresses a top priority for the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI), developing a drug to block the activity of the human kRAS cancer gene. Funded by a $2 million grant from NCI, Tosk has used its Genetically Modified Fly for this purpose. The mutant kRAS gene drives as many as 30 percent of all cancers, including 90 percent of pancreatic, 45 percent of colon, and 35 percent of lung cancers.

Tosk’s fruit fly based drug screening technologies afford a new method to find small molecule, inexpensive drugs for difficult targets. “We think our fly models give us an advantage, a way to succeed where others have failed,” Frenzel says. Tosk’s first drug candidate, TK-90, has confirmed this in human clinical studies. Tosk believes that this is just the beginning, and plans to deliver many more drugs to improve outcomes for cancer patients.

Tosk, Inc. is a privately held biopharmaceutical company that develops new drugs to prevent the adverse side effects of existing, widely-used cancer therapies and to block the activity of cancer genes. For further information on the company, see www.tosk.com.

LAKE TAHOE, NV, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — As climbers head to the top of the world on Mount Everest, WiCis is keeping them safer and extending the reach and effectiveness of TeleHealth. The company is once again proving their wearable technology platform that is continuously monitoring and sharing a climbers' vital signs and location with medical teams, rescue personnel and loved ones within seconds of being collected. May is summit month for Everest, and the challenge this year is to achieve the summit with the highest success rate while never compromising the safety of the climbers. With high oxygen flows and the most modern monitoring methods coming direct from critical care medicine, Furtenbach Adventures and WiCis seek to ensure base-camp oxygen saturations throughout the entire climb, thus never reaching the triggers that cause HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema) and HACE (High Altitude Cerebral edema) while on the mountain.

As part of the boundary-expanding expedition #EverestFlash19, which will culminate in a summit attempt on Mount Everest North in just 3 weeks, expedition leader Lukas Furtenbach of Furtenbach Adventures will be wearing a Nonin pulse oximeter with bluetooth-enabled and a Polar heart rate monitor that are continuously tracking heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, skin temperature, geo-location, altitude, speed and bearing as he climbs the world's highest peak. The climber's data is being transmitted in real-time via satellite to WiCis I-Streme Internet platform using a Thuraya Sat Sleeve, that is then analyzed their team medical doctor, Leo Montejo at Base Camp, Advanced Base Camp and the North Col. The heart of the WiCis solution is its web server app called WiCis CareFlows. A fast and modern TeleHealth solution that uses Microsoft Azure web servers. The WiCis TeleHealth solution combines: Forms, Videoconferencing and Vital Signs, all in a single Screen with a configurable Solution that is 100% Cloud-Based and hosted on Microsoft Azure, and designed for XXIst century medicine.

In addition to the continuous stream of biometric and geo-location information, of high-altitude mountaineering the climbers will be sharing updates and perspectives – and amazing views of the Himalayas on social media.

Links to both the live data stream and images will be shared on Twitter: http://twitter.com/wicissports and on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/wicissports

Monitor, Share, Protect

As a key feature of the wearable platform, WiCis is combining and analyzing biometric data to provide ongoing snapshots of the climbers' overall health status. Serious – and even fatal – medical conditions such as edema, hypothermia and cardiac arrest can occur at high altitudes if climbers push themselves too hard and too far in the ultra-thin air. By continuously monitoring climbers for trends that may indicate they are at risk of developing these conditions, medical teams located in the US can intervene before a crisis emerges. Should an unforeseen medical or other emergency arise, rescue teams will have immediate access to the data needed to assess the climbers’ conditions and their exact location to ensure more rapid and more targeted medical care.

As a further measure of protection for the climbers, OCENS is providing continuous pinpoint weather data and forecasts. This information is displayed in real time on the WiCis dashboard and also on the WiCis Android App, which the climbers are using during the trek to stay in touch.

Proving the Limits to Expand the Reach of TeleHealth

WiCis is proving real-time remote biometric monitoring in the farthest reaches of the planet and under the harshest of conditions in order to expand the reliability and range of telemedicine solutions.
