May 17, 2021

The Applexus Vaccine Appointment module is developed on the SimpleRetail platform to implement major scheduling advancements to modernize the operations and enable on-demand, real-time scheduling for COVID-19 vaccines. SEATTLE - May 18, 2021 - (Newswire.com) Applexus Technologies has been chosen by Ingles Markets, Incorporated to implement a major scheduling advancement that will modernize its operations and enable on-demand, real-time scheduling for COVID-19 vaccines. Shortly after COVID-19 vaccines were approved, Ingles started creating an innovative tool designed to replace its previous registration system. To develop a full-feature vaccine scheduling tool, the company partnered with Applexus Technologies for consulting and design expertise. Ingles initially built their COVID-19 vaccine registration tool as a method to assess local demand for the vaccine and allow their pharmacy teams to contact customers to schedule appointments, but the company quickly determined that an automated, customer-facing tool was needed. The Applexus Vaccine Appointment module is developed on the Applexus SimpleRetail platform which is available on the SAP Store and provides Pharmacies a highly scalable solution for appointment-based scheduling. SimpleRetail's rules-based appointment scheduling engine provides customers an online portal to efficiently find open appointments and self-schedule. The pharmacy-facing solution enables pharmacies to automate daily appointment management. The solution is now live and thousands of customers have scheduled their COVID-19 appointments using the SimpleRetail solution.  Sam Mathew, CEO at Applexus, says, "The SimpleRetail platform was designed to support the ever-evolving digital shopping experience in the wake of COVID-19. Enabling online self-service appointment scheduling is a great extension of the SimpleRetail model. We are pleased to continue to partner with Ingles Markets on their multi-year digital transformation journey with SAP and SimpleRetail. Most importantly, we are happy to contribute to the fight against COVID-19 and save lives by helping people get vaccinated." Ron Freeman, Chief Financial Officer for Ingles Markets, says, "Our pharmacies continue to evolve to meet the changing needs of our customers.  Our innovative scheduling tool serves our customers today for the COVID-19 vaccine and has the capacity to continue to meet our patients' future needs as demand expands for other routine vaccines and clinical services."

25 Finance & HR Leaders and Ram Charan Author Best Practice Report on Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Promotion and Success of New Managers

May 17, 2021

Key Takeaway: Manager Talent is Crucial for Business Performance — and the Pandemic Proves It Best Practice Report Best Practice Report PHILADELPHIA - May 18, 2021 - (Newswire.com)  AchieveNEXT, the leading provider of Peer Advisory Networks and Talent Development and Performance Solutions for middle-market leaders, their teams and enterprises, has released a best practice report to help companies better identify new managers and build a more robust manager pipeline. The report, titled Helping Managers Succeed, is a collaborative effort between a group of 25 finance and HR leaders from AchieveNEXT's CFO and CHRO Alliance Peer Networks, accompanied by commentary from noted business leader and author Ram Charan. The report includes first-hand insights, diverse experiences, business case studies, and best practices from finance and HR leaders on the front line of leadership development.  "During the first quarter of 2021, our peer discussions were focused on growth strategies and how to drive top-line revenue," said Greg Wood, Managing Director of AchieveNEXT's Member Networks. "We uncovered a common theme: to achieve growth goals, enterprises need the right people in the right seats. As we moved into Q2 2021, finance and HR leaders have continued to share their concerns about whether or not their new managers are equipped to step up into first-time leadership roles, especially as businesses move toward post-pandemic new norms. It became clear that we needed to turn to our peer community to gather best practices and share them with others." This best practice report focuses on six primary areas emerging and mid-market enterprises should consider when building a manager pipeline: Skills, talent pooling, pathways to success, retaining top performers, managing your talent pipeline, and becoming a better boss.  "When we decided on this topic of helping new managers succeed in order for companies to succeed, I turned to my good friend, Ram Charan, for his insights," said Thomas A. Stewart, AchieveNEXT Chief Knowledge Officer. "That is when we talked about this concept of taking a top individual performer and now expecting them to have the same success leading a top-performing team — these are clearly different skill sets. Helping high performers succeed will benefit the middle market as a whole." Download and read the report on the AchieveNEXT website. About AchieveNEXT Powered by the unique combination of Peer Learning Networks and integrated Talent Development and Performance Solutions, AchieveNEXT is a learning & development ecosystem that provides individuals, teams, and enterprises with benchmarking, insights, and solutions for next-level growth.

MobiCard Unlocks Business Networking Potential With New Social Media Features

May 17, 2021

Digital business card adds connectivity and analytics, allowing users to to boost following, track connections, network efficiently CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - May 18, 2021 - (Newswire.com) Brands rely on social media now more than ever to extend their media and marketing reach, but growing a following on multiple platforms can be a full-time job in itself. MobiCard's digital business card platform now allows users to easily attach their social media accounts to their digital business card, allowing them to share multiple social media accounts seamlessly. "More and more people and businesses are utilizing multiple social media platforms," says Joshua Sodaitis, chairman and CEO at MobiCard. "Everyone knows how much of a pain it can be to exchange social media information, especially face to face. With MobiCard, being able to easily exchange all your social media information digitally helps its users get more done in less time and simplifies the process for everyone involved." MobiCard empowers its users to leverage technology to make smarter, data-driven decisions to help facilitate long-lasting business relationships. With social media connectivity, MobiCard users can discover new groups of audiences across social media platforms they may not even have utilized in the past. Sodaitis tells the story of his namesake cousin, "Li'l Josh," a college student having challenges navigating social media for both friendships and career connections, until he found Mobicard.  "He can now share his Mobicard to people he meets while he is going to school, and they can connect to him on the social media sites he chooses with one click of a button, as opposed to contacts looking him up to "friend" on Facebook or "Follow him" on Twitter, and "connect with him" on Snapchat or Instagram. "With Mobicard, people can have one share and add you across any or all of your platforms, making it easier and faster to connect with your friends or colleagues. That is why Mobicard is more than just a digital business card, it's a dynamic digital footprint," Sodaitis said. Mobicard's social media connectability exponentially increases users' networking capabilities, which allows sales teams to reach more people and grow their social networks at a faster pace than ever before. But Mobicard also provides comprehensive data and analytics unavailable with traditional methods. When handing off a paper business card, for example, most people won't ever know its fate until they receive some sort of call back. MobiCard can help users track how effective their cards are: they can see if their information has been viewed, been shared with others, or ignored altogether. This makes segmenting leads easier and helps prioritize where sales teams should be focusing their efforts.  MobiCard is an easy-to-use digital business card platform that allows users to create digital business cards and share them with clients. The MobiCard app is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Learn more at www.freemobicard.com. About MobiCard: MobiCard has created a game changer in the networking arena thanks to its exclusive and revolutionary customizable digital business card platform. This flexible and robust application, makes exchanging contact information virtually a seamless experience. There's no limit to the creativity and ingenuity this app can provide for businesses and professionals alike as it provides an innovative networking solution that'll disrupt the traditional paper business card business.

Insurance Industry's M200 Association Celebrates 30 Years

May 17, 2021

M200 logo M200 30th Anniversary CHICAGO - May 18, 2021 - (Newswire.com) The M200 Association, one of the insurance industry's longest-running and most consequential association of risk management professionals, is celebrating 30 years of engagement and thought leadership with risk issues of significance to global companies and their insurers. Formed as a self-governing coalition of risk management practitioners drawn from the insurance industry and from large, multinational companies, the association has been meeting twice annually since May 1991 for in-depth professional and educational discussions. "Much has changed in the last 30 years, and as global and societal risks continue to evolve at an ever-accelerating pace, M200 provides a rare and valuable opportunity for members to come together to reflect on, and delve into, our shared risks and business challenges. The time we are able to spend together to explore and analyze the issues our organizations all face is invaluable to both risk managers and insurers," said Anthony Baldwin, CEO, AIG UK, and current Chairman of M200. "The kind of interplay of ideas that happens every time the M200 members come together has been enormously valuable to us all," said Loren Nickel, Google's Director of Business Risk and Insurance, and current M200 President. "The risk environment is changing and evolving in directions many risk managers would not have anticipated today, let alone 30 years ago when M200 was formed. This association provides opportunities for global companies to gain access to some of the top decision makers in the insurance and reinsurance industries to share ideas and opinions with great candor and transparency." Thirty-six of the M200 Association's current 50 invitation-only seats are reserved for risk managers, with 14 allocated to insurance and reinsurance executives. The makeup of the group prioritizes its role as a unique roundtable, allowing representatives from global insurance carriers and multinational corporate customers to speak candidly and confidentially about critical risk management issues of the day. Current membership includes risk managers representing Fortune Global 500 companies across a wide range of industries. Likewise, M200 insurance and reinsurance executive members represent some of the global insurance industry's premier companies. The M200 Association is distinctive in other ways as well. It unites risk managers and insurance executives, yet at meetings, none of its members is a host, and none a guest. The peer-to-peer mindset is reinforced by the sharing of the costs by all the members. The variety of industries mixed with global insurers and reinsurers confirms that different perspectives come to the forefront. All of this is designed to give M200 members the best possible chance of obtaining insights of a depth and clarity not available elsewhere. "What is particularly exciting about the M200 Association is the way that it has expanded its portfolio and member engagement in recent times," said Brenda Lombardo, Co-founder of NiKnack Marketing, the M200's Association Management Company. "Over the last three years, M200 launched a new, interactive website, a mobile app and a new meeting/events live app, all created to enhance member engagement. In celebrating its 30th year, M200 is well-positioned to provide members with a platform to explore the risk issues of the 21st century." The group's enhanced technology capabilities allowed M200 to quickly transition from in-person meetings to virtual programs during the pandemic. Plans call for the group to meet in person again in 2022. To learn more, please follow the M200 Association on LinkedIn. About M200 The M200 Association is a not-for-profit association that provides participants the opportunity to communicate online and face-to-face with a global community of risk managers and insurance executives. Meetings provide risk and insurance professionals the ability to engage in open, informal discussions of contemporary issues facing large risk originators and risk bearers.

ZetrOZ Systems Highlights Women's Health Week

May 17, 2021

ZetrOZ partners with many women's sports organizations to promote Sustained Acoustic Medicine (SAM) as a treatment for various forms of chronic and acute pain. TRUMBULL, Conn. - May 18, 2021 - (Newswire.com) Women's Health Week, May 9 to 16, reminds women to stay active and make health a priority in their lives. ZetrOZ Systems, developers of the Sustained Acoustic Medicine (SAM) wearable ultrasound, actively works with women's professional and amateur sports teams to help athletes recover from injury quickly, without surgery or pain medications, and perform at their peak. Among ZertrOZ's partners is the National Women's Soccer League, the country's premier women's league for the sport. Stephanie Ludwig, athletic trainer for the NWSL's Portland Timbers, is a believer in SAM. "Throughout the past five years, I have applied SAM ultrasound technology to a number of high-level athletes and the general population alike," Ludwig said. "The ability to utilize therapeutic intervention from anywhere, at any time, is a game-changer for healing and recovery. No longer do my patients need to rely on the treatment table alone to feel better." SAM utilizes continuous ultrasound therapy to accelerate natural healing at the molecular level. Low-intensity continuous therapy treats injuries, inhibits inflammation and increases the rate of tissue regeneration, angiogenesis, and nutrient exchange. From the collegiate to professional level, athletes are benefiting from SAM's ability to help them recover from a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries and restore damaged tissue. Athletes have also expressed SAM's ease of use. Even while sleeping or during other low-intensity activities, SAM is easy to wear and helps to provide on-demand, ongoing pain relief. "SAM Sport has been a catalyst in keeping my athletes on the field and pain out of the equation. Whether you're looking to enhance recovery after a heavy workout, manage chronic pain, or facilitate tissue growth and maturation during the injury healing process, SAM will prove to be the secret weapon you never realized you needed," Ludwig said. ZetrOZ has partnered with several women's sports organizations including USA Softball, USA Field Hockey, USA Hockey and the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL). In addition, ZetrOZ serves over 125 Division I colleges and athletic programs including the University of Texas, Clemson University, Auburn University, Oregon State University, Arizona State University, Wake Forest University, Duke University, University of Tennessee, University of Arkansas, Baylor University, Oklahoma State, and the University of Michigan. About ZetrOZ Systems:ZetrOZ Systems is an FDA cGMP and ISO 13585 medical technology company headquartered in the southern coastal region of Connecticut.
