Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 10 aprile 2019

Monaco. Bucksense è un fornitore di servizi negli Stati Uniti con sedi a New York, Madrid, Roma e Mumbai, attraverso una piattaforma di Programmatic Advertising per inserzionisti e agenzie che cercano di costruire la notorietà del proprio brand in house. Bucksense offre agli operatori di marketing il controllo sul media buying con un’interfaccia diretta e semplice. La Creative Suite di Bucksense è una delle prime soluzioni creative pubblicitarie self-service al mondo che sfrutta i dati tipici del Programmatic. I formati degli annunci cosiddetti ‘responsive’ consentono agli utenti di intraprendere percorsi multipli (cambiare argomenti, prenotare appuntamenti, fare opt-out, ecc.) all’interno del banner stesso, generando così campagne intelligenti, capaci di guidare l’inserzionista al miglioramento dei risultati. “Il Programmatic è stato un punto di svolta nella pubblicità online e ha radicalmente trasformato in meglio il modo in cui gli inserzionisti e gli editori interagiscono” ha dichiarato Lefebvre. “Il Programmatic Advertising – ha continuato “è uno strumento estremamente potente in continua evoluzione, ma tutte le sue sfaccettature mantengono un comune denominatore: l’efficienza. In Silversea abbiamo iniziato a investire moltissimo nella comunicazione digitale 6 anni fa, essendo uno dei pionieri nel settore delle crociere e ora la nostra holding Heritage sta realizzando questo investimento come ulteriore affermazione della nostra ferma convinzione che il mondo digitale in cui viviamo è un mondo migliore e lo sarà, ancor di più, grazie a piattaforme come quella di Bucksense che, in piena trasparenza, soddisfa le esigenze di una clientela sempre più sofisticata”.
Il CEO e Fondatore di Bucksense, Cristian Carnevale, ha aggiunto: “Bucksense è stata fondata nel 2012 perché abbiamo intuito la necessità dei brand di riprendere il controllo della loro spesa pubblicitaria e della qualità. Il fatto che Heritage Group abbia deciso di sostenere finanziariamente il nostro impegno mi dà garanzia che Bucksense diventerà presto una presenza leader e rivoluzionaria nel settore del Programmatic Advertising.”
Heritage Group è una società di investimento presieduta da Manfredi Lefebvre che investe in diversi settori tra cui, tra gli altri, Turismo, Leisure & Hospitality e altre differenti attività. Heritage ha trasformato Silversea Cruises, l’azienda familiare fondata dal padre di Manfredi nel 1994, nella linea di crociere di lusso di maggior successo al mondo con un’organizzazione globale, una flotta di 9 navi e altre 5 in costruzione/ordine. Heritage ha venduto la quota di maggioranza di Silversea a Royal Caribbean nell’estate 2018 con un valore d’impresa di oltre 2 miliardi di dollari e recentemente ha reinvestito parte del capitale netto nell’acquisizione dell’85% di quella che è senza dubbio considerata la compagnia di viaggi di lusso più apprezzata al mondo, Abercrombie and Kent.

“Innovation Lab: come generare brevetti in un giorno”: nuovo servizio da Warrant Group

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 4 novembre 2018

Correggio (RE) Warrant Group (Gruppo Tecnoinvestimenti), società leader nella consulenza alle imprese per operazioni di finanza agevolata, preme sull’acceleratore dell’innovazione presentando a Strasburgo, in occasione della TRIZ Future Conference 2018, un nuovo servizio denominato “Innovation Lab”, che consente alle PMI di generare idee brevettabili nell’arco di un solo giorno di lavoro.
Il metodo è stato elaborato da Warrant Innovation Lab, società di Warrant Group che offre, tra gli altri, servizi di Innovation Upgrade, in collaborazione con l’Università degli Studi di Bergamo: a valle di uno studio focalizzato sui temi del Technology Management, i due partner hanno sviluppato un modello operativo che permette alle PMI di velocizzare l’applicazione della nota metodologia TRIZ (Teoria per la Soluzione Inventiva dei Problemi) e generare così innovazione in tempi notevolmente ridotti. Nata nel 1946, TRIZ si è affermata nel tempo per la sua efficacia nel favorire l’innovazione basandosi sull’analisi sistematica dell’evoluzione dei trend tecnologici. Tuttavia, uno dei maggiori ostacoli alla sua diffusione, soprattutto tra le PMI, consiste da sempre nei lunghi e spesso insostenibili tempi di training e di successiva applicazione nonché nell’assenza frequente di competenze specifiche.“Il modello da noi proposto, invece, consente alle aziende non particolarmente strutturate, ad esempio nel settore manifatturiero, di beneficiare della metodologia TRIZ producendo idee meritevoli di brevetto in un intervallo davvero breve di tempo, come dimostrano già due casi applicativi di successo, rispettivamente nei comparti della lavorazione della ceramica e del metallo” spiega Matteo Marusi, Direttore di Warrant Innovation Lab.
In due sessioni di team working condotte nell’arco della medesima giornata, le figure chiave aziendali – sotto la guida dei ricercatori dell’Università degli Studi di Bergamo esperti in TRIZ e con la consulenza tecnologica e di mercato dei professionisti di Warrant Innovation Lab – si confrontano sulle possibili soluzioni a specifici e concreti problemi fino ad arrivare alla selezione di una o più idee già strutturalmente pronte per trasformarsi in brevetti.Il documento è stato presentato proprio nel corso della TRIZ Future Conference, l’evento annuale promosso da ETRIA, l’associazione europea di TRIZ, in occasione del quale esperti e professionisti di tutto il mondo si confrontano su strumenti e programmi a sostegno dei processi innovativi in ambito tecnico ed ingegneristico.

Michail Zekkos, Partner del team tecnologico di Permira, ha dichiarato: “L’aumento delle minacce e la crescente complessità delle infrastrutture continuano a posizionare il segmento della sicurezza informatica tra i più rapidi in crescita e resilienza del settore IT”.
In un mercato caratterizzato da una elevata velocità di prodotto, riteniamo che il ruolo dei servizi e delle tecnologie a valore aggiunto, ricoperto da Exclusive per la generazione della domanda di canale, diventerà sempre più decisivo nei prossimi anni. Abbiamo seguito nel tempo il crescente successo di Exclusive e non vediamo l’ora di supportarli nel consolidamento della loro posizione unica sul mercato”.La transazione è soggetta alle consuete condizioni e dovrebbe chiudersi nei prossimi mesi.Tra gli advisor coinvolti: Morgan Stanley, Natixis Partners, White & Case, PWC, Fidal KPMG e Goodwin Procter.

Il nuovo Global Operations Department affidato a Pascal Baumgarten si occuperà infatti di implementare programmi di Lean Management per dare maggiore indipendenza e capacità di decision making ai team, e migliorare la qualità del servizio. Altro obiettivo della nuova unità internazionale sarà la digitalizzazione di tutti i processi legati dall’esperienza dei clienti a partire dal programma dedicato al soccorso stradale Roadside Assistance.La strategia “We Connect” vuole rendere Europ Assistance un Gruppo sempre più unito grazie alla condivisione di knowhow ed expertise dei 34 Paesi in cui opera. Questa è l’ottica nella quale lavorerà il nuovo Group Management Committee che si occuperà di semplificare la corporate governance e velocizzare e rendere più trasparenti i processi decisionali. Oltre al CEO di Europ Assistance Group Antoine Parisi faranno parte del Group Management Committee i manager di Europ Assistance Group e quelli delle principali regioni.
