Idencia Launches International Reseller Program

idencia logo

Partners can offer 'smart products' under their own brand by reselling the Idencia information tracking service.

We want to provide our partners with every opportunity to clearly differentiate themselves from their competition.”

— Jeff Pollock, CEO

TOPSFIELD, MA, UNITED STATES, July 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Topsfield, MA- Idencia, Inc. announced today that is launching an international reseller program that will enable operating partners to include the Idencia information tracking solution with their products. Vendors in the infrastructure supply chain may now offer ‘smart products’. An RFID tag embedded in (or affixed to) the product can be scanned to source all historic records associated with the product. Being web hosted, different parties in the supply chain can add information to create a timeline history of each product from time of manufacture through end of useful life.

The program allows parties throughout the infrastructure supply chain to add more value to their customers:

• Equipment manufacturers who sell to precast concrete producers can now offer a mold that enables their customers to sell ‘smart concrete products’.

Precast concrete manufacturers that sell their products equipped with Idencia provide a more valuable ‘smart product’ that sets them apart from their competition and makes their customer more productive.

• Contractors that include Idencia can distinguish their projects and add margin by offering project owners more value from the use of ‘smart products’.

Jeff Pollock, Idencia CEO, elaborated: “Resellers can include our information tracking service under their own brand “powered by Idencia”. We want to provide our partners with every opportunity to clearly differentiate themselves from their competition.” He added that Idencia is already in conversations with potential partners in the US, Europe, Australia and the Middle East.

Mr. Pollock said that more announcements will be forthcoming as Idencia signs interested resellers.

Knight Investment Limited – Alibaba Group Takes Stake in Focus Media

Alibaba Group – Companies

Alibaba, the worlds largest retailer has announced today that it plans to take a stake in digital media advertising company, Focus Media.

HONG KONG, HONG KONG, HONG KONG, July 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Alibaba Group will acquire a minority interest in China’s Focus Media Information Technology Co. Ltd., as it looks explore new models of digital marketing, the Chinese e-commerce giant said in a filing to the New York Stock Exchange.

Alibaba will pay $1.43 billion for a 6.62% share of Shanghai-based Focus Media, whose digital advertising screens can be seen on streets, in subways and in elevators across 300 Chinese cities, reaching 200 million middle-class consumers. In addition to those pre-existing shares, Alibaba said it plans to acquire another 5% interest in Focus Media within the next 12 months.

The company also will purchase a 10% stake in an entity controlled by Focus Media founder and Chairman Jason Nanchun Jiang, which controls 23.34% of Focus Media, for $504.7 million. New Retail Strategic Opportunities Fund L.P., a non-consolidated, related party of Alibaba, will acquire a 1.37% interest in Focus Media as well. The total investment, not including the expected additional 5% purchase, will be $2.23 billion, giving Alibaba a 10.32% stake.

Alibaba positioned the investment as a part of its larger New Retail strategy. New Retail integrates the best aspects of online and offline commerce to make shopping more engaging and convenient for consumers, while offering enhanced marketing tools and more-detailed consumer analytics to merchants.

The deal offers synergies with Alimama, Alibaba’s largest digital-marketing platform, Alibaba said. By partnering with Focus Media, which has set a medium-term goal of having five million terminals in 500 Chinese cities and reaching 500 million middle-class consumers, Alibaba can offer new digital channels through which the brands selling on its e-commerce platforms can connect with these consumers and their rising spending power.

Already, Alibaba is leveraging its analytics collected from its more than 500 million users to help brands better understand and reach Chinese consumers. Called “Uni Marketing,” the use of consumer data allows brands to identify, target, reach and retain their customers across Alibaba’s entire ecosystem of e-commerce and media properties. This approach to digital marketing, which offers more advanced and reliable marketing tools to brands than traditional marketing, has always been at the core of New Retail, Alibaba said.

The two companies said they would collaborate on ways to merge offline media and digital marketing, as well as help brands transition to fully digital operations. The upgrade to “New Marketing” will support the growth of New Retail across all sectors, they said.

Knight Investment see’s this as a fantastic move for Alibaba Group. The companies expansion has barely faltered over the past few years and with the Ant Financial spin off just a few months away, we have upgraded our call on BABA to strong buy.

To find out more about the opportunities Knight Investment Limited see’s with Alibaba Group, contact us at info@knight-investment.com or visit our website www.knight-investment.com to find out more about their services and products available.

LIMA, PERU, July 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — There is a Change in Power happening around the world as a combination of natural gas and renewables dominate new installation activity in the power generation sector. Nowhere is this more apparent than in Latin America. In the past 25 years, natural gas power generation saw an almost three-fold increase in its share of total power generation in the region, and it is projected to grow more than 150% in the next 25 years, according to the IEEJ Outlook 2018. At the same time, a new generation of advanced class gas turbines (ACGT) has emerged as the leading natural gas power generation technology around the world.

Today, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS), the world’s leading provider of advanced class gas turbines, hosted a “Change in Power” natural gas power generation technical conference in Lima, Peru. Independent Power Producers (IPP’s) and other industry participants from across Latin America were on hand to discuss their experiences and showcase best practices on how to thrive in this dynamic power market.

In addition, MHPS and local power developer Gaz Energie signed an agreement to develop a 515 MW natural gas power project that will have the lowest cost of electricity and the lowest emissions of any gas power plant in Peru.

The Humay PS Project will be located in the Ica region of Peru and will leverage MHPS’ industry-leading JAC gas turbine power island, featuring the largest, most reliable and most fuel efficient gas turbine in the world. The new plant will enter commercial operation in 2021.

“As we advance through project development, MHPS’ financial, technical and development support has assured our team that we have a long-term partner in Humay PS. Our next step is to formalize our EPC contractor selection, with whom MHPS has agreed to consort to deliver a true turnkey project for Peru,” said Miguel Saldana, Vice President of Gaz Energie.

“Power producers in Latin America are looking for best in class options to generate clean, reliable and affordable electricity,” said Paul Browning, MHPS Americas President and CEO. “MHPS’ innovative gas turbine technologies and digital solutions allow customers to set new standards for both efficiency and reliability. Two years ago we started talking about and preparing for the Change in Power that is happening in our industry. By listening to the needs of our customers in Latin America, we have developed the capability to be not only a technology partner, but also a financial partner and a construction partner. The Humay PS project will demonstrate all of these capabilities, and will be a showcase project for Peru and for the region.”

Intermountain Healthcare Announces Zero Suicide Initiative

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, July 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A new initiative, called Zero Suicide, will be helping to reduce suicide losses in Utah — which have been increasing for the past few years. Utah has one of the highest suicide rates in the nation. Several studies released recently by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have shown that suicide rates have increased among all age groups.

"Last year, 45,000 people died by suicide in the United States, 630 of them in Utah," said Mark Foote, MD, senior medical director of Intermountain Healthcare Behavioral Health. "Suicide is not a new problem. The rate has gone up and down over time, but over the last 15 years, the rate has steadily gone up. This is no longer just a behavioral health problem — this is a public health crisis. We need to engage our entire system and our communities in combatting this horrible problem."

Intermountain Healthcare, the State of Utah, and numerous community groups have partnered together to find ways to reduce the deaths. Intermountain will target their suicide prevention efforts in three areas:

• Improving access to behavioral care, in part by adhering to best practices to screen, assess, and develop safety plans.
• Preparing caregivers and community organizations about how to talk about suicide and help those at risk seek help and create safety plans.
• Raising awareness about restricting access to lethal means.

Intermountain has worked for the past decade on mental health integration – bringing mental health best practices into the primary care provider’s offices. A family doctor can screen for depression, anxiety and other mental health concerns – and help get resources for their patients to be treated.

"In the future, none of us should feel at a loss for what we can do to help. As we implement the Zero Suicide framework as a part of our overall commitment to Zero Harm, we'll take a systematic approach to quality improvement that will make it easier for all of us to lead together to achieve Zero Suicide. Zero is the only acceptable number," said Mikelle Moore, Intermountain’s senior vice president of Community Health.

Intermountain Healthcare is a Utah-based not-for-profit system of 22 hospitals, 170 clinics, a Medical Group with about 2,300 employed physicians and advanced practice clinicians, a health plans group called SelectHealth, and other medical services. Intermountain is widely recognized as a leader in transforming healthcare through high quality and sustainable costs. For more information about Intermountain, visit www.intermountainhealthcare.org.
