Compass Sales Solutions, MITS and Tour de Force Announce New Company Name

Seattle, WA: September  2020: Compass Sales Solutions, MITS and Tour de Force have announced that the three companies will begin operating under one, new company name, and will be known as White Cup. This rebranding strategy reflects both the evolution of the company, the technology platform, as well as its vision for the future. Along with this change, a newly redesigned company logo has been revealed and a new website is planned to launch October 2020, which will prominently feature the company’s focus on enabling stronger customer relationships with its technology platform while growing the White Cup brand.

The technology platform, which includes business intelligence, sales enablement and mobility, will be called Hookshot. Hookshot brings important data together in one place to give users valuable and actionable insight that will help improve customer relationships.

White Cup also offers support and professional services that help businesses increase user adoption and maximize the value of the platform.

“We help companies grow by giving them the information to build great business relationships,” states Sandy Spiwak, Director of Marketing. “Over the last 12 months, our technology has evolved to become an integrated platform, including a native mobile app, that truly helps our customers predict challenges before they arise and discover new opportunities that improve their bottom line. Hookshot is substantially stronger as one technology platform than the previous independent solutions. This required a complete rebrand to better reflect our goal of helping customers discover their next action to bolster their business success.”

Award-winning proptech product powers trust and convenience for UK letting agents during COVID-19

UK PropTech RentProfile, announced today the launch of Onboarding, a powerful new product designed to automate and streamline the set-up and management of new tenancies, powering trust and convenience to agents, landlords and tenants during COVID-19.

Since its launch in 2016, RentProfile has been on a mission to power trust for the rental market, incorporating its unique landlord and tenant checking capabilities. Its client list includes Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices, Jackson Stops and Emoov/Mashroom.

RentProfile’s latest product, Onboarding, aims to support agents by eradicating the need for physical interactions and paperwork, reducing an average 2 weeks of admin time end to end to just 2 days, and as quick as 20 minutes. Traditionally referred to as ‘Tenancy Progression’, Onboarding automates the steps between a prospective tenant indicating they would like to rent a property and agreeing a tenancy, including:

– Tenancy Creation in less than a minute

– Agency Terms & Dynamic Referencing Criteria

– Award-Winning Referencing – twice as thorough compared to traditional referencing

– Electronic Signing of Tenancy Agreement

– Deposit & Initial Rent Payments setup

What sets Onboarding apart from existing products on the market is the way in which the process is automated between steps, dramatically reducing the turnaround time. For example if a tenant agrees to Terms, Referencing Criteria and pays the Holding Deposit they are automatically progressed to the Referencing stage. As tenants progress via a mobile app or web, agents can track each tenancy in the dashboard and are alerted if something requires their attention.

The conditions that COVID-19 has created mean there is an even greater need for agents to streamline time-consuming, repetitive processes like excessive emails, phone calls and paperwork.

Onboarding was recently recognised by Visa Inc, in this year’s Visa Everywhere Initiative Pandemic Challenge, where Kim Kadlec, SVP Global Marketing at Visa announced RentProfile as the “Audience Favourite Winner”, describing it as “clearly a business that fulfils an unmet need”. RentProfile was selected out of an initial pool of 1,300 fintech startups, competing for two winning prizes (Audience Favourite and Overall Winner).

Paul Munday, CEO & Co-Founder of RentProfile added: “With remote work and social distancing, we see a shift in proptech adoption. In taking a process that can take weeks down to just minutes, without the need for physical meetings, emails, calls, we’re adding convenience at a time when the rental market is seeking solutions to help operate in a safer, more streamlined approach.”

Onboarding is available now, and more information can be found at www.rentprofile.co.

About RentProfile

RentProfile develops technology that powers trust and convenience for the rental market. Founded in 2016 after one of the co-founders became a victim of a rental scam, the company launched the UK’s first online landlord background check, and later developed a unique tenant checking technology. To date the company has processed over 25,000 tenant check reports for reputable agents such as Jackson Stops, Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices, Savills, Century 21 amongst others. Its latest product, Onboarding, simplifies the set up and management of new tenancies between agents, landlords and tenants. RentProfile’s work has been recognised by GOV.UK and won industry awards from PropertyWeek and Visa.

In-depth Research on Agriculture Technology Ecosystems Has Been Released by Intellias


Intellias has released its recent whitepaper on the acute topic of “Sustainable Agriculture: From Tech Solutions to Ecosystem” in the light of the global challenges imposed to farmers and agricultural companies looking for a brand-new technological approach to digital farming.

Based on in-depth research, this whitepaper examines proven agricultural technologies and how to combine them into a unified ecosystem that enables farmers to move toward sustainable agricultural practices.

Intellias research provides valuable insights for agribusinesses and technology companies operating in the agricultural industry:

● A clear and explanatory timeline of agricultural technologies demonstrating what has led to the current digital transformation in agriculture
● A detailed and schematic overview of the global challenges farmers and agribusinesses will face in the near future and that are driving them to adopt digital technologies
● A comprehensive list of technology solutions by global AgriTech providers that enables farmers to improve their business operations and their work in the field
● A guide for agribusinesses and technology companies on how to unite separate digital solutions into a borderless ecosystem that provides a new path to sustainable and profitable agriculture
● Research backed by quotes from industry leaders, agricultural surveys, data-driven reports, and real-life use cases

This research addresses the importance of sustainability in light of global climate changes and a growing demand for food and highlights the vital role of digital technologies in solving complex challenges farmers and growers are facing today.

To support sustainable agricultural practices, independent solutions are not enough. Such solutions can solve particular needs farmers are experiencing today; but in the face of severe upcoming challenges, agribusinesses require complex solutions that can unite the benefits of all possible technologies.

As noted in the whitepaper, 41.3% of respondents lack knowledge about actions and measures that can be taken to make agriculture more sustainable. The aim of Intellias’ research is to bridge that gap and show how technology enables sustainability.

The first part of the whitepaper focuses on analyzing factors holding back farming operations and investigating ways that technologies can mitigate the most severe of those factors. In this part of the whitepaper, agribusinesses will get acquainted with customer personas of farmers, learn their needs, and recognize the current gaps in making technologies available at the scale necessary to support sustainable agricultural operations.

The second part of the whitepaper covers recent technological breakthroughs by world-known AgriTech providers. The focus is on combining these technologies in one ecosystem based on proven practices applied by other industries that are already adopting a collaborative approach to technologies.

The Sustainable Agriculture whitepaper is free to download by the following link.

About Intellias

Since 2002, Intellias has been a trusted software engineering partner and R&D services provider for established agribusinesses and AgriTech startups all over the world.

Cloud technology is being rapidly implemented to help UK care homes reopen for visits


OXFORD, UK; 23 July 2020 – Oxfordshire-based tech company Jezzam Ltd has been vigilantly working with care home groups in the UK to help them quickly implement an online booking system that will allow relatives to visit as the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions ease.

It’s no surprise that visitor slots are already being snapped up as relatives longing to see their family members get ready to make contact once more.

As Covid-19 restrictions have begun lifting, care homes have had to consider many factors when opening up for visits including:

  • Managing visitor numbers
  • Allowing time for cleaning between visits
  • Record keeping to help with track and trace
  • Providing innovative ways for residents and relatives to meet e.g. Zoom calls

Jezzam has made great strides in these areas by providing an easy to use online booking system for relatives with detailed electronic records of booking histories and fully customizable booking options to match individual care home needs.

This system has already resulted in time saving for busy receptionists and other staff and the rapid implementation means care homes can be up and running within minutes.

Commenting on the simplicity and efficiency of the booking process, Andrew Winstanley, CEO, The Berkley Care Group said, “As soon as we opened up for online booking, relatives were filling slots to see their loved ones. Before Covid-19, booking wasn’t something we needed but it’s now become an essential part of ensuring the safety of our residents, staff and visitors. Jezzam has provided us with an effortless way to make a big difference to our resident’s lives.”

When a Jezzam team member suggested online booking might help her see her aunt at Cumnor Hill House, one of The Berkley Care Group’s homes, the team set about making this a reality. Working closely with the Berkley Care Group team, Jezzam implemented online booking for all 6 of the group’s care homes in a matter of hours.

“The Jezzam team has been there for us all the way through the process. The flexibility of the software has allowed us to tailor it to our specific needs. The speed at which we got online booking up and running and the support we’ve received has been absolutely first class,” reiterated Winstanley.

Meanwhile traffic to www.jezzam.com has increased by over 800% compared to the same period last year as the company finds itself servicing entirely new sectors while the crisis continues to transform our working and personal lives. From retail to sports, companies including tennis clubs and bowls clubs, music shops and barbers are now looking to online booking and scheduling to help them resume business as life begins to return to some sense of normality.

About Jezzam Ltd:

Jezzam is a trusted provider of cloud-based booking and scheduling software, enabling their customers to save time and expand their online presence by providing sophisticated, mobile-ready online booking that is beautifully simple to use and fast to set up.

Jezzam supports a diverse customer base ranging from Jet ski experiences, flower arranging classes, taiko drumming workshops, sports clubs, to community hall hire and care homes.

Leading Associations around the world unite to applaud the success of the industry in addressing COVID-19 and set a clear vision for its future.

The technology and business services sector was integral to supporting businesses across the world as they addressed the challenges of adapting to changes caused by COVID-19, demonstrating remarkable agility, commitment and resilience in responding to the crisis; ensuring business continuity for global clients and prioritizing safety of all employees.

Major breakthrough technology in the project management space


https://www.prfire.com/

A young Portuguese startup, planless.io, founded by Grégory STOOS a French entrepreneur, has just launched a new “intelligent” project management and collaboration platform offering, to companies all over the world, a disruptive new technology that will change the way companies and teams organize their work.

The project management space is flooded with tools, each one offering its unique way of managing projects and all competing for the best user experience. All these tools offer great ways to organize tasks, centralize information, and collaborate efficiently.

It is a very difficult task for any business to choose the right solution and it is years now that this space has not seen something brand new that could change the way teams organize and manage their work.

Planless.io created a tool that leverages Artificial intelligence to automatically plan work, allocate resources, and manage people’s workload. It is capable to find out, within millions or more possibilities, the best organization in a matter of milliseconds and to recalculate it at any change.

Until today, planning, tasks assignment, and workload management have all been managed manually and are very time-consuming and unoptimized. The rise of Agile methodologies aims to counter-balance these issues with more or less success.

The technological breakthrough proposed by planless.io will not only save a lot of time, make teams more productive, and allow them to focus on working the plan instead of planning the work; it also offers new possibilities in terms of work management that could see the emergence of new methodologies or improve actual ones.

The founder Gregory STOOS mentioned: “I’am excited and looking forward to witness the impact and changes with what we’ve created. The feedback we have from Beta users and our first customers are pretty impressive. They see on average a 30% increase in productivity and efficiency on their work if they were using other tools before and 65% on average for the ones new to project management tools. We’re very excited!”

The company is based in Lisbon, Portugal, and is actively looking for the right investors.

Grégory STOOS: “We are 100% bootstrapped and created this from our sweat and own funds in the last two and a half years. We are now looking to find the right partners to expand globally and put in place all the resources and support needed to help millions of companies benefit from what we have to offer”.

Planless.io not only offers its algorithm to plan work but proposes an all-in-one project management and collaboration platform that enables teams and companies to get their businesses to the next level.

Quantexa’s cloud-based technology helps OFX fight financial crime


Leading foreign exchange and global payments provider OFX deploys Quantexa, utilising Google Cloud Platform, to fight increasing industry financial crime risk and support regulatory obligations

London and Sydney, June 24th 2020 – Quantexa, the leader in contextual decision intelligence (CDI) software and solutions, has partnered with OFX, to deploy a pioneering cloud-based service technology platform that strengthens OFX’s financial crime detection capabilities in international payments.

With increasing regulatory focus on the integrity of international payments, OFX is leading the way with enhanced anti-financial crime detection and investigation capabilities, working with Quantexa. The jointly configured cloud-based solution deployed using Google Cloud Platform infrastructure, uses dynamic entity resolution and network analytics as-a-service to build a complete contextual view across multiple data sources to detect financial crime more accurately. The enhanced capabilities of the solution have empowered OFX to enhance the process for monitoring its customers transactional activity and improving the detection of financial crime.

By creating a 360-degree contextual view of the customer, the platform enables the generation of more meaningful alerts and the ability to spot hidden risks more effectively, with fewer false positive alerts.

The partnership brings together two leading innovators in the FinTech and RegTech sectors to enable more automated, real-time decisioning and to more effectively detect criminal activity across borders.

By enriching internal data with transactional data and external sources, Quantexa’s CDI technology builds a complete network view of customers to reveal hidden connections and suspicious activity. A contextual approach to risk detection empowers OFX to effectively identify complex risk and financial crime, such as money laundering, and enables them to make better operational decisions in a shorter time frame.

Vishal Marria, CEO of Quantexa, said: “We are delighted to be working with such a progressive organisation like OFX, who are leveraging our contextual decisioning technology to tackle an important global challenge, to help ensure international fund transfers are not exploited by increasingly sophisticated criminal networks, looking to move illicit funds across borders. Jointly we have created a solution that is ensuring the integrity of international payments.”

Mark Shaw, COO of OFX, said: “We continuously look for innovative ways to build on our existing prevention systems to keep ahead of financial crime. The bottom line is that this matters because it protects our customers and our communities. Illicit flows can underpin horrendous crimes and all of us in the industry has to play our part in making sure we do everything in our power to ensure we prevent it. Quantexa’s open technology integrates into our IT ecosystem and augments our team’s investigative capability. It has given us the ability to identify wider networks of suspicious transfers, enabling us to react quickly and protect our customers.”

About OFX
