Virtual Reality Solutions Bridge Education Gaps

Posted by Hailey Roos on Wed, Jul 28, 2021 @ 10:28 PM
  • BSI Solutions fosters novel thinking and creates custom solutions designed to meet complex organizational challenges
  • The Novel Education in Virtual Reality (NEVR) platform is a fully immersive virtual learning platform that allows teachers and students to enter the classroom from anywhere. 
  • VR Technology is a natural learning solution for future generations, and BSI Solutions is ready to innovate for the future  

About BSI Solutions

BSI Solutions provides innovative and transformative development services to global corporate and government partners. The company fosters novel thinking to create customized, state-of-the-art solutions designed to meet the most complex organizational challenges. The core expertise is artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain technology, XR technology, staffing and program management.

BSI Solutions was founded in May of 2019 by retired US Army veteran Dr. Kendrick Carroll. The company started with very humble beginnings with just one client and one office, and has since grown to over 20 business partnerships, over 60 employees, and operations nationally and globally. Dr. Carroll has fostered an undeniable passion within the company for empowering youth for future growth. Under his leadership, BSI Solutions has created the first 100% student-focused program to provide career-bound students with full-time career opportunities upon graduation. 

Novel Education in Virtual Reality (NEVR)

As schools across the nation navigated the new distance learning challenges created by the pandemic, innovative technologies were critical in ensuring that children’s educational experience is protected and enhanced. As an innovative solution to this growing issue, BSI Solutions created the Novel Education in Virtual Reality (NEVR) platform. This interactive, fully immersive platform uses the power of virtual reality for education and training and provides students and teachers with stand-alone VR headsets that enable them to enter the classroom from anywhere. 

NEVR offers increased levels of embodied learning and engagement that allow students to interact with teachers in real-time, as well as interact with, manipulate, and build objects and virtually touch items they may not have access to in their own classrooms. 

Participating educational institutions first identify which classes would be best suited for a virtual offering for lectures. Each instructor then works with a BSI Solutions software developer to identify how they would prefer for their classes to look and function within virtual reality. Students and instructors are able to design and create their own avatars to use while in the virtual environment. Unique experiences such as virtual field trips are also created.

VR Technology is a natural learning solution for future generations. It connects the innate learning language of students with the ability to comprehend the presented lesson plan. Technology continues to be the ultimate culture neutralizer, and with the unknown waiting around every corner, virtual reality platforms are the future. 

BSI Solutions won a Bronze Stevie Award for COVID-19 Response Categories - Most Valuable Technical Innovation in The 2021 American Business Awards®.

Nutricraft provides safer alternatives to traditional stainless steel cookware

Posted by Hailey Roos on Thu, Jul 22, 2021 @ 09:00 AM

About Nutricraft

Nutricraft is a provider of safe, non-toxic, and health-conscious high-quality cookware. Their goal is to provide non-toxic cookware to keep the original food nutrients intact and educate people on safe cooking and proper nutrition that will have a lasting impact on consumers’ health and nutrition. After launching Nutricraft in the Australian market nearly three years ago, they have had massive success globally. 

Nutricraft

Nutricraft uses unique 316Ti Titanium Stainless Steel on the interior of their cookware, which makes the product 20x more resistant to corrosion and pitting than any other stainless steel brand. This durable, hypoallergenic, non-porous, and non-reactive cooking surface creates the best possible cooking experience, allowing users to cook with less to no oil, as the minimum moisture cooking method maximizes nutrition. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Nutricraft pioneered the “Try Before You Buy” program so people could experience the cookware firsthand and see how Nutricraft can benefit them. They are the only cookware brand offering this program. With instructional videos, Nutricraft teaches consumers how to use their cookware. 

In addition, during the pandemic, Nutricraft transitioned its business to online marketing, and sales continued to grow as more people spent their time at home cooking. 

As Nutricraft hit more and more business milestones, they started the Nutricraft Livelihood Program, which helps uplift people from poverty and make a positive impact on lives.  

After the huge success of the ‘Try Before You Buy’ program, Nutricraft has rolled out a  global campaign for Reseller’s Program.  It offers business opportunities for entrepreneurs and professionals who want to earn extra income, start their own business, or sell cookware products in their stores or shops.  

Nutricraft

Nutricraft has envisioned a trusted brand that does not only care about health and wellness but also helps in income generation and livelihood support.  Through Reseller’s Program, everyone has an equal chance to reach their financial goal while enjoying the lifelong benefits of safe, smart, and healthy cooking.

Nutricraft won the Gold Stevie for Company / Organization Categories - Startup of the Year - Consumer Products Industries in the 2020 International Business Awards® and Bronze in the 2020 Asia-Pacific Stevie® Awards for Excellence in Corporate Innovation.

Tailoring Wellbeing During the Pandemic

Posted by Hailey Roos on Tue, Jul 20, 2021 @ 12:53 PM
  • Taylor Medical Center in Jackson, TN serves mostly uninsured or underinsured patients in the community
  • Dr. Mechelle Taylor Moragne provided unwavering service to the community during the pandemic, including creating a free testing center, providing free masks, and distributing free vaccinations

About Taylor Medical Center 

Taylor Medical Center is a primary care facility that focuses on preventive health and chronic care management. Dr. Mechelle Taylor Moragne opened the Center in 2017 with the goal of being an advocate for patients and providing exceptional medical care. She was the first medical director of a clinic that served mostly underinsured and uninsured patients, who often carried a high burden of chronic conditions. Her style of care relies on the input of the patient, ensuring that they feel heard and seen. Dr. Taylor Moragne believes that each patient that enters her office deserves the best care possible regardless of socioeconomic status. Her motto is “Tailor your well-being”, and that's exactly how she works with patients.

taylor medical center 3

Dr. Mechelle Taylor Moragne of Taylor Medical Center was nominated for the Frontline Medical Hero of the Year Award for her untiring service to the Jackson, TN community during the COVID-19 pandemic. While most businesses closed doors and providers worked from home, Dr. Taylor Moragne and the staff at Taylor Medical Center kept the doors open to the patients of Jackson. 

taylor medical center 2Many patients found themselves without access to medical care and were unsure where to turn for help. Because most of these patients in this region of West TN are uninsured or underinsured, they have the highest burden of chronic health conditions, making them even more vulnerable to the effects of the coronavirus. 

These patients needed to have their illnesses managed, medications refilled, and guidance delivered about decreasing their risk and exposure during the pandemic. Dr. Taylor Moragne met and provided them with a COVID testing center at no cost. When LabCorp (the facility used to process the test) ran out of solution, swabs, and collection tubes, Dr. Taylor Moragne purchased these items to assure testing. She also became a community partner with the local Health Department to provide free masks to the Jackson community. Today, the Taylor Medical Center is providing free vaccinations to uninsured individuals in the Jackson, TN community, and is doing its part to get the vaccines into arms to beat the COVID pandemic. 

Taylor Medical Center won two Silver Stevie Awards: for COVID-19 Response Categories - Frontline Medical Hero of the Year, and for Company / Organization Categories - Minority-Owned Business of the Year in The 2021 American Business Awards®.

Data Gumbo’s Rocket-Like Trajectory

Posted by Hailey Roos on Thu, Jul 01, 2021 @ 11:04 AM
  • Data Gumbo strives to be the largest smart contract network globally and to change the way the world does business 
  • Amid the pandemic and oil price crash, Data Gumbo achieved numerous milestones as a recognized leader, including a robust sales pipeline and customer base, doubling the size of the company, and adding several partnerships
  • Data Gumbo’s blockchain network, GumboNet, automates the execution of smart contracts for industrial enterprises, resulting in increased speed, accuracy, transparency, visibility, security, massive cost-savings, the removal of inefficiencies, and trust

data gumbo 2

About Data Gumbo 

Data Gumbo started out as a data platform that connected to collected and standardized operational data to enable machine learning, AI, and condition-based maintenance systems. The company transitioned to utilizing blockchain after spotting an opportunity to eliminate a sizable cost inefficiency between an oil supermajor and one of its suppliers. With integrated real-time capabilities, GumboNet reduces contract leakage, frees up working capital, enables real-time cash and financial management, and delivers provenance unprecedented speed, accuracy, visibility, and transparency, as well as automated and accurate ESG standards measurement and reporting.

Data Gumbo was founded by entrepreneur and energy executive Andrew Bruce in 2016 and set out to build a solution to unify operational field data with automated smart contracts, resulting in GumboNet, the massively interconnected industrial smart contract network powered by blockchain that delivers transactional certainty in commercial relationships. 

Since 2020, Data Gumbo has experienced a rocket-like trajectory as adoption and business use cases have become evident to the most critical of global heavy-asset industries - especially as they navigate the crises of the past year. Data Gumbo is a broadly recognized innovator, as noted in the Forbes 2020 Energy Awards as the “Disruptive Innovator” and in being named to CB Insights Blockchain 50. 

Amid the pandemic and oil price crash, Data Gumbo achieved numerous milestones as a recognized leader, including a robust sales pipeline and customer base, doubling the size of the company, and adding several partnerships. Now Data Gumbo is being adopted at a fast clip - one indicator of recognition that its innovation is not only disruptive but critical to enable monetary and operational survival for coming out of crisis. 

GumboNet

The antithesis of token-hyped, public blockchains, Data Gumbo offers a purpose-built, private and permissioned blockchain network called GumboNet that enables and automates the execution of smart contracts for industrial enterprises. By transforming existing natural language contracts to “smart” digital contracts, the network creates validated, auditable, and immutable records delivering trust and value to counterparties. 

Available as a subscription, GumboNet frees users from excessive IT spend and the hefty administrative burdens required to build their own solution. Business outcomes include speed, accuracy, transparency, visibility, security, massive cost-savings, the removal of inefficiencies, and finally, trust. For example, service providers get paid for exactly what is delivered, and buyers pay only for what is measurably delivered; payment automation takes a typical 90-day invoice process down to as little as two days. 

GumboNet’s key differentiators include the capability for subscribers to create, configure, negotiate, and manage smart contracts that work in tandem with natural language contracts. The network is a purpose-built private, permissioned blockchain with no cryptocurrency, tokens, or mining. It operates as a single network of ledgers rather than non-interoperable point solutions, can restore massive data sets for complete visibility and audibility, integrate with existing legacy or IoT data sources, and guarantees interoperability with other subscribers. 

Blockchain delivers the ability to know and lower a subscriber’s cost, and GumboNet offers a path to navigate previously convoluted and resource-intensive issues around trust, accuracy, and the ability to verify data in the field. 

Data Gumbo won two Gold Stevie Awards for Company / Organization Categories - Most Innovative Company of the Year - Up to 100 Employees and for New Product & Service Categories - Business Technology - Blockchain Solution in The 2021 American Business Awards®.

Innovative Property Management Company Becomes Market Influencer

Posted by Hailey Roos on Thu, Jun 17, 2021 @ 10:53 AM
  • Rockstar Capital’s marketing numbers skyrocket with award-winning team
  • Creative branding generates multi-million impressions and thousands of leads for the property management company
  • Rockstar Capital’s innovation allows them to get ahead of competitors in a notoriously slow industry

About Rockstar Capital 

Rockstar capital

Rockstar Capital is an industry-leading property management company that owns and operates affordable, well-maintained apartment homes throughout Texas, in cities such as Houston, Humble, Baytown, Rosenberg, Alvin, Angleton, Pasadena, Ingleside, and Kingsville. Their current operations include 21 communities with a total of 3,762 units, and they expect to grow to 10,000 units by 2023.

Beginning humbly in 2011 by holding signs outside of their apartment communities, Rockstar Capital’s marketing team has grown to six members who have brought in a lot of their previously outsourced work. With more manpower, they have been able to focus more work on the big picture and run more targeted and strategized campaigns. Rockstar Capital has successfully established its Apartment Rockstar branding for investors, as well as the Rockstar Capital brand for their residents.

Influencer-Style Branding

With more than 1,400 YouTube subscribers, 64,000 Instagram followers, and 1,400 Facebook page likes as of August 2020, the Apartment Rockstar branding has helped the company team up with celebrities like Tarek El Moussa, from HGTV’s Flip or Flop. They have also established owner Robert Martinez as a recognizable face in the Houston Multifamily industry.

Apartment Rockstar strives to take both investors and residents on a journey behind the scenes of Multifamily, something their competitors rarely do. Martinez was recognized as the owner of a National Apartment Association (NAA) Property of the Year in 2019 and has earned NAA’s Independent Owner of the Year award for the second time in 2019, becoming the only NAA member ever to do so. Along with awards, Robert has been featured in articles by Forbes, Money, CNBC, Make It, Entrepreneur, and Business Insider.

Cost-wise, 2019 was a great year for Rockstar Capital’s marketing numbers. Rockstar’s team was able to bring in 34 million impressions, 4.7 million company website views, 51,000 potential resident leads, and 2,800 net leases portfolio-wide. While generating record-breaking numbers, the team reduced marketing costs by bringing everything in-house instead of relying on apartment websites or marketing companies. Rockstar Capital’s ability to innovate and to stay on top of current marketing trends enables them to get ahead of its competitors in an industry that is notoriously slow on keeping up with modern marketing.

As a marketing department, they have been running an immense conglomerate of campaigns to fully establish their brands in the Multifamily industry. For four consecutive years, Rockstar’s properties have been recognized as the top in the nation—five of their properties rank in the Online Reputation Assessment (ORA) Top Rated Elite 1% among 116,000 other properties nationwide.

Rockstar Capital won the Bronze Stevie for Marketing Department of the Year in The 2020 American Business Awards®.

Personal Privacy in Cyberspace

Posted by Hailey Roos on Thu, May 20, 2021 @ 10:59 AM
  • Software company used by millions of people worldwide is an industry leader in sensitive data privacy and proactive protection
  • Spirion helps organizations shrink their sensitive data footprint 
  • The Sensitive Data Manager identifies core data, its location, its accessibility, and its usage timeline, thus preventing cyberattacks against organizations in all industries globally

About Spirion

Spirion is a software company that is an industry pioneer designing the critical first step of data security and privacy through its data discovery, persistent classification, and behavior software and services. Since 2006, thousands of organizations worldwide have reduced their sensitive data footprint and minimized the risks, costs, and reputational damage of successful cyberattacks and regulatory violations. 

Protecting Sensitive Data

Managing massive amounts of organizational data is a standard, necessary part of doing business today. Using and owning sensitive data of this size brings great responsibility and moral obligation to protect it. In response to numerous cybersecurity incidents, organizations must now focus on both cyber and privacy risk - the intersection at which true data privacy management now lies. 

Spirion sits squarely at this crossroads and has created a solution where many least expect it: before the firewall. Bringing a different way of thinking, Spirion protects what matters most - the personal data privacy and security of colleagues, customers, and the community. They build and deliver accurate data discovery and classification solutions. 

What Sets Spirion Apart

Spirion protects the identity of over 50 million people across all industries around the world. With an accuracy rate of 98% and the lowest false-positive and negative rates in the industry, Spirion finds all structured and unstructured data on networks, clouds, remote file servers, and all endpoints. 

Sensitive Data Footprint Reduction: Performs fast and accurate searches of structured and unstructured data in locations where many other solutions cannot, including data mining within images, email servers, databases, SharePoint, and the cloud. 

Persistent Classification: Ensures that no matter how many times data gets moved, copied, or shared, it is categorized and tagged automatically. 

Rules-based automation: Accurately examines, identifies, and tags data sensitivity, helping organizations reduce friction to business operations. 

Data Policy Enforcement: Continuously monitors for new data; when a file is created, copied, edited, detached from an email, extracted from an archive, retrieved from the cloud or from enterprise storage, or modified, it is discovered, automatically classified, and reported. 

Secure Disposal of Private Information: Secures unprotected data from creation to retirement with mechanisms in place for the proper remediation of all sensitive data-file shredding, redaction, quarantine, reduction of access rights, third-party controls and more. 

Managing Sensitive Data

The Sensitive Data Manager discovers the location of sensitive data across an enterprise and classifies it according to business rules and industry regulations. Once identified, the Sensitive Data Manager helps organizations automatically identify their core data, where it is stored, who has access, and when it was last used. It automatically finds sensitive data and prevents unauthorized distribution, helping organizations to implement appropriate controls, strengthen their security position, and comply with growing data privacy regulations. It also helps them to effectively label and shrink their sensitive data footprint and keep track of their data in all forms and locations, on-premise or in the cloud.

It is essential for organizations to understand sensitive data within the context of their business in order to take proper actions to protect it, set their broader security strategy, and incorporate additional controls to further strengthen their data defense and ensure ongoing compliance. This allows companies to get the bigger picture of how data flows through their organization and gain real command and control over that data to comply with the laws and regulations built to protect personal data privacy. 

Spirion’s COVID-19 Response

As a data protection software provider, Spirion is actively focused on the risk associated with massive amounts of data created each day under the new wave of privacy laws. Their mission to protect what matters most - paired with the forced changes caused by millions of people working from home - allowed them to quickly develop a no-charge data-discovery agent to minimize the risks associated with personal data exposure. 

Spirion won a Gold Stevie for International Data Protection Solution, a Gold Stevie for Postsecondary Enterprise Solution, and a Silver Stevie for Governance, Risk, & Compliance Solution in The 2020 American Business Awards®.

Shifting Economies to Secure Solutions

Posted by Hailey Roos on Wed, May 12, 2021 @ 02:28 PM
  • FORDATA is a secure file-sharing solution that provides Virtual Data Room systems to Central and Eastern European economies 
  • The company responded to COVID by providing free services to companies in need and fundraising thousands of dollars  

About FORDATA

FORDATA is the leading provider of Virtual Data Room systems in Central and Eastern Europe. As a secure file-sharing solution working in Software as a Service (SaaS) model, FORDATA helps clients in managing documents exchange and communication during complex and confidential deals, supporting the largest M&A deals, IPO’s, private equity investments, restructurings, drug development, and clinical trial projects, and more.


FORDATA’s History

In 2009, three college friends decided to import a business idea from London and change the digitally belated Polish mergers and acquisitions market by introducing the first Virtual Data Room to Polish customers. The shift involved providing assistance to million-dollar transactions, securing best-kept corporate secrets online, and comforting investors who were used to making their decisions to buy by looking through thousands of files stored in a locked room - not online. As a result of the massive change,
FORDATA shifted the way Polish M&A businesses operated. 

In just a few years, FORDATA had become a standard of dealmaking in Poland, trusted by Deloitte, KPMG, PwC, Dentons, and the biggest Polish state and private companies - and is developing a presence abroad as well.

In 2019, FORDATA had been long-trusted by international investment advisors, insurance companies, and the Treasury of Poland and other countries. Currently, FORDATA is CSR-conscious and aligned with the strictest regulations of the EU and international markets.

FORDATA’s COVID-19 Response

When news of the coronavirus broke, FORDATA faced incredible pressure to continue helping others. The company provided free service to companies in crises and fundraised over $15,000. Companies in need were provided with services to restructure, run audits, find financing and new partners, or simply survive the transition to a remote work environment, which became the new normal to banks, advisors, and auditors. Everyone needed a virtual tool to stay safe and cut costs while also saving time and working efficiently. 

Today, FORDATA continues growing and providing critical services to the economy. 

FORDATA won a Bronze Stevie for COVID-19 Response Categories - Most Valuable Response by a Business Development Team in the 2021 Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service®.
