New service to measure and analyze best practices and competitive differentiators across a broader sample of websites

BOSTON, MA, United States, 28-Jul-2021 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Many businesses want to delight customers around the world with a top-notch digital experience in their own language. However, a lack of knowledge and objective insights hampers their ability to convert their intentions into an effective experience and leaves their international customers with a sub-par experience. Now, global organizations can improve the global online customer experience with a new data product by CSA Research, the Localization Intelligence Analyzer, powered by LocHub. The Localization Intelligence Analyzer connects LocHub’s observed and crawled data to the research firm’s historical repository of data and insights; helping companies make strategic decisions that too often have been informed by anecdotal evidence and gut feel.

“LocHub uses the latest analytic and diagnostic software to provide near real-time intelligence. Think of it as a centralized, and user-friendly visual dashboard that offers a localization scoring system and points out errors you can address and remove. It’s as easy as inserting the URL of the website you want to crawl,” comments Rikkert Engels, CEO and founder of LocHub. “CSA Research’s Localization Intelligence Analyzer, powered by LocHub, allows global organizations to benchmark their performance and contextualize it based on a variety of factors to understand where they stand compared to their peers on multiple axes.”

Organizations use the data and analysis from the Localization Intelligence Analyzer powered by LocHub for:

  • Tactical Analysis: Benchmarks such as language or locale support and the depth to which the site has been localized help companies find and fix flaws in their global customer journeys and identify gaps compared to their competitors. These include performance lags, mismatched content, and other common and even exotic problems with multilingual sites.
  • Strategic Decisions: CSA Research can analyze the sequence in which languages have been added and analyze the incremental effect of language support on business objectives over time by correlating results with KPIs and other measures. By connecting that observed and crawled data to the research firm’s historical repository of data and insights, they can help companies make strategic, data-based decisions.

CSA Research is using LocHub’s unmatched crawling capabilities to expand its long-running Global Website Assessment Index and Digital Opportunity services.

“LocHub enhances and accelerates our firm’s ability to measure and analyze best practices and competitive differentiators across a broader sample of websites in today’s customer-focused digital experience,” adds Dr. Arle Lommel, senior analyst at CSA Research. “It broadens the reach of our empirical data that our clients use to inform their strategic decisions concerning market entry and support in global markets.”

CDP Industry July 2021 Update: accelerated growth during the pandemic

MILFORD, CT, United States, 28-Jul-2021 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Customer Data Platform (CDP) vendors grew at a record pace during the first half of 2021, according to the CDP Institute’s latest Industry Update report. The semi-annual report found that a brief slowdown at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic was replaced by accelerated growth, increased funding, and strategic acquisitions as companies invested in CDPs to support pandemic-inspired transformation projects.

CDP vendors listed in previous reports added 6% more employees and 11% more venture funding during the first half of 2021, compared with 1% employment growth and 3% funding growth in the second half of 2020.

In addition, a near-record twenty new CDP vendors were added to the report. These were split about evenly between CDP start-ups and established businesses that added a CDP capability to existing products.

Industry growth is also reflected by a record eight CDP acquisitions and mergers during the period. Most buyers were customer engagement software vendors seeking a CDP to connect siloed components of multi-channel suites.

Growth was especially strong in the Asia Pacific region, whose share of industry vendors grew from 13% one year ago to 17%, share of employment grew from 10% to 14%, and share of funding grew from just 6% to 25%. Europe-based companies fell from 39% to 38% of vendors, from 32% to 28% of employment, and from 14% to 12% of funding over the same period.

The report estimates CDP Industry revenue for 2021 at $1.6 billion. This figure represents revenues for all CDP product sales worldwide, including CDP components within other systems such as marketing suites, message delivery systems, and ecommerce platforms. It does not include related services or in-house customer data system development.

Significant features added to Akenza’s new IoT platform

ZÜRICH, 30-Jun-2021 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Akenza, a leading Internet of Things (IoT) platform, is proud to announce the launch of its brand new platform. This is yet another step to realize their vision towards employing IoT across markets and industries. They are convinced that by significantly reducing the effort and complexity companies face when creating IoT solutions, they can lead the IoT evolution towards broader market applicability. The number of possible use cases to connect the world around us is endless, but it is a matter of awareness, cost, and complexity.

IoT is a vast network of devices and technologies that can communicate and exchange data via the Internet. Not only limited to computing devices such as smartphones and laptops, the term IoT refers to any technology with Internet connectivity to send or receive data. IoT technologies can range from wearable heart-rate monitors, automated thermostats, smart cars to sensors for manufacturing equipment.

The akenza platform enables businesses to introduce innovative and digital IoT solutions rapidly. Solutions built with akenza span any vertical, be it smart city, smart building, or industry. The highly volatile technological landscape necessitates solutions that enable an agile approach to development and innovations.

Therefore, akenza proudly supports digital accessibility, which is why it is premised upon the enhanced relationship between IoT devices and accessible digital experiences. Furthermore, their flexible, software-only platform enables IoT developers to develop smart solutions on a solid technological foundation.

Over the last few years, they have learned a lot about the IoT ecosystem, the much-desired enterprise features, its simplicity, and its self-service needs. So they listened and delivered!

The significant features of their brand new platform include –

Connectivity-as-a-Service
Managing a portfolio of devices across various connectivity platforms may require additional administrative effort and complexity. With their offering of Connectivity-as-a-service, IoT developers, CTOs, and R&D Heads no longer need to worry about separate network operator contracts. Instead, simply choosing the best connectivity, depending upon the region, can enable them to connect their devices to akenza. Furthermore, this IoT platform allows them to manage their connectivity portfolio with minimal effort by offering centralized connectivity management.

No-Code Data Processing
Being in total charge of IoT data streams is imperative to generate valuable information from raw sensor data. With No-Code Data Flows, IoT developers only need to define their data processing chain once and apply it to as many devices as you want.

Rule Engine
With the rule engine feature, they can process and analyze data from multiple devices simultaneously and trigger actions based on sensor data. These actions can include sending email or SMS notifications, downlinks, or aggregating data without requiring any coding skills.

Advanced User Management
Various stakeholders such as project managers and developers are involved during the lifecycle of an IoT project. With akenza’s built-in role-based access control, they have full access rights, allowing them to collaborate with all the parties involved securely.

Device Type Studio
akenza allows developers to choose from multiple devices and create a device type with a web-based device type studio. They are bound to benefit from a device-type library with a payload decoder/encoder for up-/downlinks. The well-known off-the-shelf IoT devices are already integrated with their open-source device library, and new devices are continually added.

Private Cloud
akenza can be deployed on the existing cloud, such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud Platform.

Visualizations
The akenza platform allows IoT developers to make more out of data by providing insightful data visualization. The built-in data visualization offers a direct overview of the data from computing devices, connects easily with dashboard builders such as Grafana, or uses one of the plugs and plays Business Intelligence Modules.

With all these features to support the development of IoT applications, they look forward to getting you started in your IoT journey. Visit their new website.

New survey on freelancers uncovers unique and untapped growth opportunity for digital service providers

COPENHAGEN, 25-May-2021 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — A new study looking into the business models and strategies of freelancers has revealed a unique and untapped growth opportunity for digital service providers.

Freelancers today represent a growing labour market segment, one which has been heavily boosted by the pandemic. According to Freelancer.com, in Q2 2020, as the pandemic’s first wave raged across Europe and the United States, freelance job openings increased by 25% compared to the first  quarter of 2020. Yet despite freelancers today accounting for 15% of the European labour market and up to 30% of the US labour market, these small business owners remain an untapped resource for SME service providers.

Keen to understand more about the popularity and profitability of this growing sector, SME service provider, Mono Solutions, and trade association, Localogy, conducted a survey in April 2021 of more than 550 freelancers across the United Kingdom, Germany and Sweden, to gather insights into how these professionals operate their businesses and what motivates them to opt out of more secure full-time employment.

The study found that while, for many, the Covid-19 pandemic and associated market changes were behind their career choice, for others, particularly those aged between 18 and 34, the career path is a lifestyle choice. Findings also revealed that, regardless of the reason or the industry in which these freelancers operate, they all have one thing in common; a need to market themselves.

Mie Bilberg, VP Marketing, Mono Solutions, says the study shows 85% of freelancers surveyed have their own website, 61% have their own blog and 38% have an ecommerce store. “Personal branding is especially important for a freelancer, which is why his or her first marketing investment is a website and a blog, both of which require some form of software to develop and run. Interestingly, 62% of freelancers tell us they actively recommend software to their clients, but only 16% of those we surveyed are software resellers themselves.”

Most of the surveyed freelancers who were not diversifying income through software resales, simply didn’t know the opportunity was available.

Mie believes any business selling digital products like websites, online booking, ecommerce or services like, SEO, graphic design or advertisement, should be looking to freelancers as potential clients as well as potential lead generators. “Many freelancers have trusted relationships with their small business customers. As accountants, marketing consultants, graphic designers etc., they are in a strong position to recommend software solutions to their clients. Solution providers should be looking at local freelancers as the influencers they are. It’s time to get to know your freelancers on another level, they could be your key to long-tail growth.”

These findings offer powerful insights into a potentially lucrative form of marketing for software and digital technology providers. To discover more insights from the study and to download the report in full, visit Mono Solution’s website.

PayPerHead Agents Ready for NBA & NHL Playoffs Revenue Boost

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2021-May-17 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — For PayPerHead agents, two of the most important events on the sports calendar happen in spring. The NBA Playoffs and NHL Playoffs both start in the second half of May.

Yearly, Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, and National Hockey League sports betting generates $50 million to $80 million. Last August, when the NHL Playoffs and NBA Playoffs in Orlando happened simultaneously, U.S. sports bettors wagered a record $2.1 billion.

The August 2020 total was a 90.2% increase from August 2019. Recorded U.S. sports betting handle broke the August 2020 record in October, when American sports handicappers bet more than $3 billion for the first time.

Sports betting revenue information never provides a complete picture. PayPerHead agents don’t release betting revenue stats, which means statisticians underreport total sports wagering information. Agents are excited about a typical NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs and NBA Playoffs.

The National Basketball Association finished their 2019-2020 NBA Season at Disney World in Orlando. The National Hockey League finished their season in two Canadian cities, Edmonton and Toronto. Although both leagues had exciting finishes, the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Dallas Stars to win the Stanley Cup, and the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Miami Heat to win the NBA Finals, neither league produced the same television ratings as they did in the past.

Per Nate Johnson, PayPerHead’s Product Manager, that could be because of new viewing avenues. “We offer video streams via our Live+ platform,” Johnson said. With Live+, agents can also offer players game trackers. The in-game betting platform allows players to watch, check out stats, and wager on games while they happen.

PayPerHead also has a Premium Props platform where players can bet on star performances. Johnson said that sports bettors could wager on how many points a player like Kevin Durant or James Harden scores in a game during the NBA Playoffs.

Johnson added that PayPerHead designs digital platforms to boost action. “Premium Gaming has the latest 3D options, we provide two live dealer platforms for agent flexibility, and agents and players can use multiple options to deposit into their accounts via the Agent Payment Solution.”

“During promotions or trials, agents can use all prime platforms for free. We expect all agents, but especially newer agents, to see a big boost in action during the NBA Playoffs and NHL Playoffs,” he said.

Ofer Levin GTI: Investments in Electric Vehicles in Austria

Vienna, Austria, 2021-May-10 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — The electric vehicle market in Austria and around the world is growing at an alarming rate. Statistics indicate that Tesla sold more than 180,000 vehicles in the first quarter of 2021. According to Ofer Levin GTI, a leading expert in cars, 4% of all the sales were made to Austria, and Tesla Model 3 was the most demanded. This makes up 33% of all vehicles in Austria’s market and is followed closely by Volkswagen AG at 12% of the market share.

“With these statistics, we can conclude that Tesla is taking over the automobile market,” Ofer Levin went ahead to explain. We are foreseeing a scenario whereby shortly, the gas-powered vehicles will be outdated. This is because electric cars are being embraced worldwide and are quickly replacing traditional gas-powered cars. In the recent past, vehicle sales declined drastically, and this was attributed to the pandemic.

People reduced spending and embraced saving to cater for uncertainties. The sale of electric cars was not spared either, and before March 2021, the market was a bit too slow.

However, the automobile market in Austria saw an increase in the electric vehicles registered in the months of March and April.

The New Tesla Model

Ofer Levin GTI noted that the new Tesla Model Y had been received pretty well in the automotive market, especially in Europe. The first batch, which was a trial, sold out quickly, and the company is now considering going into full production capacity.

The mid-sized SUV is versatile enough to carry seven passengers and luggage. You can fold the seats on the second row independently to create more space for extra luggage.

With the current developments, Tesla is headed for a big win. The world is looking for ways to preserve the environment, yet one of the most significant pollutants has always been automobile emissions. Electric vehicles are the solution to this issue, and any government concerned with environmental conservation will encourage its citizens to drive electric vehicles.

In addition, Tesla’s electric vehicles have redefined comfort. They have the most extended range and fastest acceleration ever seen in any vehicle model. The high performance and the inbuilt efficiency ensure that your road trips are smooth and enjoyable.

Besides all the convenience that comes with electric vehicles, Tesla Inc has been kind enough to reduce the model 3 by up to 9% in the European market. This move is part of the attempt to promote the consumption of clean energy. While Tesla is doing well, other models are coming up pretty fast, such as the Volkswagen ID.3 electric hatch.

Adelaide, South Australia, 2021-May-10 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Mato Jelic’s Chess School of South Australia offers a free and fun way of improving your game by 500 ELO points.

Chess is a fascinating mind game which has been attracting people since ancient times. It requires a large amount of skill and practice as well as the ability to create and implement effective strategies.

I even won 2nd place in my college blitz chess fest where some strong players rated above 2000 also participated. Thank you, Mato 🙂 you should be the most subscribed channel in chess category.’

Fun new Christian song for kids tackles issues of identity, self-esteem

Created by family who produced America’s first Christian children’s album to go platinum

LOS ANGELES, CA, U.S.A., 2021-Apr-30 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Created by the family who produced America’s first Christian children’s album to sell 1 million copies, “Stars and Dots” is set to be released on all digital platforms today.

This follow-up single is part of Anthony & Tiffany Salerno’s roll-out to their debut children’s album, “I Am a Worshipper,” slated for release May 28. The single is available here and the album is available for preorder and pre-save here.

Anthony’s father, Tony Salerno, creative producer of gold, platinum and Grammy-nominated children’s albums, provided oversight and feedback for the forthcoming album, which leads off with “Stars and Dots” as the first track.

In the same upbeat vein, “Stars and Dots” has a cheerful tune with ocean vibes that introduces the practice of coming daily to God to hear His voice and discover His view of us — that we are immeasurably valuable and worthy of love because God created us in His image, Tiffany said.

“I’m excited for kids to hear this powerful song and the whole album, which carries the heritage of my parents’ music into a new era,” said Anthony, who grew up in Dallas, the Los Angeles area and the former home of Peanuts creator Charles Schulz in Sebastopol, Calif.

Inspired by Max Lucado’s bestselling children’s book, “You Are Special,” originally published by Crossway in 1997, “Stars and Dots” celebrates the truth that people can be liberated from the weight of others’ opinions by assigning value instead to what God says about them, Tiffany said.

Christi Given, who has hosted on TBN and written and sung more than 300 tracks and short jingles for Bravo TV’s “Vanderpump Rules,” Lifetime’s “Dance Moms,” and other shows, said she believes “Stars and Dots” could have a powerfully positive influence on children and adults.

“It has a very good message — to listen to God’s voice rather than comparing ourselves with others,” Given said. “Instead of focusing on how many ‘likes’ and comments we receive, we need to pay attention to what God says about us, which is the message of ‘Stars and Dots.’”

Chuck Reich, pastor, host and executive producer of “Answering the Call” on Overcomers TV, said he saw Anthony and Tiffany’s love for kids when they performed their songs for children at a church and a school in Haiti.

“Anthony and Tiffany are true professionals in media, and they have a heart for God and for children,” Reich said.

“It is so vital and life-changing for children to learn about their identity in Christ and hearing God’s voice from an early age. Anthony and Tiffany do an excellent job facilitating that through music,” said Rachel Bishop, minister of children and preschool director at Emmanuel Church in Abilene, Kansas. Bishop is a student of Visionwriters International, a ministry about identity and God’s voice that Tiffany said has greatly influenced her songwriting.

Tiffany wrote “Stars and Dots” before meeting Anthony on his birthday in September 2018 at CBS Studios in Hollywood. Anthony went on to provide music production and arrangement for the album, starting with “Stars and Dots.” The couple married in December 2020 at Mount Baldy Village Church in Mount Baldy, Calif., where they lead worship and direct the children’s department.

Their single is available here and their album is available for pre-order and pre-save here.

Further background, education

Tiffany earned a bachelor’s degree in mass communications with emphases in journalism and public relations and a minor in creative writing, followed by a graduate certificate in technical writing and professional communication, from Kansas State University. She later graduated from Radiance International – Hollywood House of Prayer’s Launch ministry school with the Evangelism Award. Tiffany was born and raised in Abilene, Kan.

Anthony graduated from California Polytechnic State University with a bachelor’s degree in commercial music. He has worked as a musician, director and producer for many ministry leaders, including Willie Aames, known for playing the title character in “Bible Man” (1995-2003); Raul Ries, who pastors a congregation of 12,000 in California and can be heard on the “Somebody Loves You” radio program; Dennis Sempebwa, president and chancellor of The 300, a ministry training college; and others.

Anthony was born in Tyler, Texas, where his parents launched Agape Force at a site that has been shared with the headquarters of Youth with a Mission (YWAM), Teen Challenge, Leonard Ravenhill’s Last Days Ministries, the evangelist David Wilkerson, the late musician Keith Green and now Mercy Ships. “Music Machine,” which Tony produced in 1977, became America’s first Christian children’s album and first Christian album by a group artist to sell 1 million copies.

PayPerHead Agents Expect 2021 Triple Crown Revenue Bounce Back

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2021-Apr-28 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Because of the pandemic, the handle on the 2020 Kentucky Derby dropped significantly from the previous year. Handle on America’s signature horse race fell 49.8% from 2019. Churchill Downs didn’t run the race until September 5, four months after Derby’s traditional race day on the first Saturday in May.

PayPerHead agents are hopeful the 2021 Triple Crown results in a racebook revenue bounce back. The 2019 Kentucky Derby set a record handle of $165.5 million. 2019’s handle was 10% higher than 2018’s $149.9 million, which had been the previous record.

This year’s race lost star power after winter book favorite Life Is Good became injured. But Essential Quality is undefeated, owned by Godolphin, and trained by Brad Cox, who has ranked in the top ten in wins and earnings in the past four years.

The 2020 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner won’t be the only undefeated horse in the race. Rock Your World, who won the Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby, has victories over grass and dirt. Known Agenda, the Florida Derby winner, and Hot Rod Charlie, who won the Louisiana Derby, will also enter.

Although three races comprise the Triple Crown, for agents, the Kentucky Derby is the most important. Per Nate Johnson, PayPerHead’s product development manager, the Derby attracts more betting action than any other thoroughbred event.

“The Kentucky Derby may be the most popular horse race in the world. In 2019, Japan saw $4.1 million wagered on the Derby. It’s also the one race that should produce action for almost all of our agents,” Johnson said.

PayPerHead agents see most revenue from the sportsbook, live in-game betting platform, and products like the digital casino and live dealer. Johnson said few agents rely on horse racing revenue but that all see horse racing action on the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes.

When asked about betting action on the Belmont, Johnson said it was hit or miss. “Everyone wants to see if the Derby winner can take the Preakness. If there’s a Triple Crown at stake, the same horse won both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, the Belmont could attract more action for our agents than the Derby.”

Johnson added, “Our agents count on the Kentucky Derby for racebook revenue followed by the Preakness. If different horses win the Derby and Preakness, the Belmont becomes just another horse race.”

Decentralization and digital identity venture Manyone marks the 2nd year of its strategic collaboration with Blockchain@UBC

VANCOUVER, Canada, 15-Apr-2021 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Manyone, a pioneering technology venture in decentralization and digital identity, is delighted to announce that 2021 marks the second year of the strategic collaboration between Manyone and The Peer Social Foundation and the Blockchain@UBC research cluster at the University of British Columbia.

This academic-industry partnership is one of the first to critically assess the feasibility of decentralized social media, explore engineering possibilities and configure the privacy and security implications of self-ownership of social media data.

Blockchain@UBC Graduate researchers gain research opportunities at Manyone and The Peer Social Foundation by applying for grants from MITACS (Mathematics of Information Technology and Complex System), a Canadian non-profit research organization that fosters cross-sector collaboration and develops talents for the innovation ecosystem in Canada.

In the next year, UBC researchers will identify technical requirements for decentralized identities, design new system architecture, and explore the value and business models for blockchain-based identity management.

Chang Lu, Research Manager at Blockchain@UBC states that, “Manyone and The Peer Social Foundation offer an inspiring space for our students to sharpen their knowledge about blockchain. Their vision of decentralized social media represents a paradigm shift in the world of social networks. We are grateful that we can contribute to the shift”.

Michael Cholod CEO at Manyone and The Peer Social Foundation comments, “As a Vancouver based pioneering enterprise, we value the opportunity to work with academics and researchers in Canada to identify the social and organizational impact of decentralized identity and determine the privacy and security implications of self-ownership of social media data. The academics at UBC help us in understanding the bigger picture and how to look for real world solutions.”

Dr. Victoria Lemieux, Blockchain@UBC Co-Lead and Associate Professor at UBC’s School of Information, further adds that, “We’re excited to delve further into both the technological and policy ramifications of Manyone’s vision of securing digital data free from manipulation or distortion and to support technical and social innovation in Canada”.

Manyone, with offices in Vancouver, Canada and Stockholm, Sweden is launching the world’s first decentralised secure messaging and identity sharing platform in April 2021.

Manyone is a pioneering technology venture that aims to deliver private secure networks, private digital identities, to increase enterprise productivity and digital security. Manyone actively works with The Peer Social Foundation. The Peer Social Foundation and Manyone believe in empowering a distributed internet where everyone can feel in control of their digital identity. They do this by delivering a self-sovereign digital identity and decentralized social platform for enterprise and consumers. A critical component of this is to work beside and support vital education, R&D and the open-source community to connect people, businesses and governments.Find out more here: www.manyone.one
