FinFit’s Intelligence-Driven Financial Wellness Platform Motivates Employees

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 20 settembre 2019

FinFit, a FinTech company that provides over 125,000 employers with a unique financial wellness benefit platform, has overhauled the platform to focus on predictive AI, feature enhancements and ease of use for members. FinFit announced its mobile-first focus in July, updating FinFit.com with a sleek new look and improved functionality. The user experience for members follows suit, creating a smart, seamless journey site-wide from information-gathering to ultimate financial health improvement. Dozens of customer interviews were conducted by a design firm that specializes in user experience transformation. FinFit leveraged the findings to reinvent its financial wellness platform. Members can log in to FinFit via facial recognition, fingerprint technology and various other mobile-friendly options. The FinFit experience begins with a personal financial health assessment which identifies each member’s financial goals and current financial situation. This differentiator enables FinFit to provide unique recommendations and next steps tailored to each member, unlike other programs that offer generic solutions that may not be relevant or necessary.Each FinFit member journey is AI-driven, utilizing data to determine the best ‘next steps’ to help each member achieve financial stability. A new member rewards program encourages members to explore FinFit, awarding points for completing actions that will improve their financial acumen.The need to provide clearer direction for employees has led to the new financial health score, categorized based on the key pillars of financial wellness: spend, save, borrow and plan. Members receive an overall score, but they’ll also have visibility into how they’re performing in each of the four categories. This data helps drive the ‘next best action’ engine, ensuring that each member is uniquely positioned to improve their financial position and achieve greater financial health.

QIAGEN N.V. (NYSE:QGEN; Frankfurt Prime Standard:QIA) today announced the U.S. launch of its QIAstat-Dx syndromic testing system after receiving 510(k) clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, along with the multiplex QIAstat-Dx® Respiratory Panel for simultaneous qualitative detection and identification of multiple respiratory viral and bacterial pathogens. QIAstat-Dx (formerly Stat-Dx DiagCORE®) represents the next-generation in multiplex molecular diagnostic systems that enables fast, cost-effective and flexible syndromic testing with novel Sample to Insight solutions powered by QIAGEN chemistries. The system, based on the proprietary DiagCORE® technology, received CE-IVD marking in January 2018 and already has a significant installed base.QIAstat-Dx is being launched in the U.S. with a comprehensive respiratory panel that detects more than 20 pathogens. The panel is the first test in a deep and broad pipeline of planned assays for QIAstat-Dx in the U.S., with plans to launch a gastrointestinal panel later in 2019. With the ability to multiplex as high as 48 targets, a deep pipeline is planned that will span infectious diseases, oncology, companion diagnostics and other disease areas.Demand for syndromic testing with molecular diagnostics is growing rapidly, to accurately evaluate infections and other diseases that manifest as a set of symptoms with uncertain causes. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), as many as 35 million cases of influenza each year lead to several hundred thousand hospitalizations and as many as 56,000 deaths in the U.S. The CDC uses estimates of flu cases because most respiratory infections are not diagnosed or reported with precision as part of the agency’s disease surveillance system. In respiratory syndromes and flu testing, QIAGEN estimates the total addressable market at about 1.5 million tests per year in the United States.

Catchpoint Adds Internet Intelligence to its Digital Experience Monitoring Platform

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 19 Mag 2019

Catchpoint™, the digital experience monitoring (DEM) leader, today introduced Internet Intelligence, a new monitoring capability providing organizations with deeper visibility into the health and pathways of the external and internal networks upon which their applications or digital services depend.Internet Intelligence shows a network’s impact on the end user experience by continuously monitoring network health and network paths to private, public or hybrid clouds, CDNs, and other distributed IT architecture. This far-reaching visibility isolates degradations across broadband, transit, last mile and wireless ISP networks that could negatively impact end users. It also reduces mean-time-to-detect and offers the ability to adjust network peering to optimize delivery speeds.The Catchpoint Node Network’s 800 IPv4 and IPv6 vantage points in 200 cities – the largest, most diverse monitoring infrastructure in its category – powers this capability and provides an unmatched level of intelligence on network performance. With its vast geographic footprint, continuous monitoring via broadband and transit ISPs, and with monitoring agents on the world’s leading dedicated internet providers such as Verizon, Comcast, Level3, China Telecom, and China Mobile, Catchpoint can pinpoint transit degradations to a specific ISP or peering point.“It is critical to know how the internet at large is impacting your customers’ experience, and therefore, your business,” comments Mehdi Daoudi, CEO and co-founder of Catchpoint. “Any company with a large and diverse infrastructure footprint, or which relies on multiple clouds, CDNs, and DNS providers, understands the challenge of isolating network health when troubleshooting. By continuously testing from diverse networks and types, ISPs and geographies, we bring a new level of visibility and baselining to better understand reachability, availability and performance.”

The Story of Nauticus, a New Global Digital Financial Platform

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 11 aprile 2019

Melbourne based fintech Nauticus is the shared vision of two old friends, licensed accountant Bryan Ng and former ANZ banker Jonathan Chang.Over months of late night conversations in 2016, they sketched out a vision of using blockchain to help provide universal access to low cost financial services and technologies, to enable everyone around the world to realise their financial goals.These financial goals don’t have to be lofty – they can be as simple as sending money to your family overseas without incurring high money transfer costs. Or they can be as ambitious as launching an Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) or tokenizing shares or real estate assets as a Security Token Offering (STO).
Ng and Chang launched a successful ICO in 2018 and amassed a 50,000 strong social media community. Trading on the regulated and secure platform began in the fourth quarter of last year. It now offers 16 digital currencies and AUD with additional currencies being added regularly. With 282,000 registered accounts in 84 countries around the world, Nauticus is well on its way to becoming Australia’s first globally digital financial platform. The leadership team draws talent from National Australia Bank (AUS), ANZ (AUS), Goldman Sachs (UK), Bank of Melbourne (AUS), Accenture (USA), News Corp (AUS) and Telstra (AUS).
An intuitive mobile app will offer low cost, borderless money transfer and foreign currency trading in late 2019. And, as the representative of an Australian Financial Services Licensee, Nauticus empowered to tokenize assets in the form of STOs. It intends to launch trading in securities at the beginning of 2020. Nauticus is targeting $25 million in its equity raise, to supercharge the business and onboard 2.9 million users by 2022. The funds will support an extensive cross-platform marketing spend, securing cross jurisdiction banking and financial licenses and expanding the team internationally.

Uphold Platform to Support Groundbreaking Stablecoin

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 13 marzo 2019

Uphold announced support of a revolutionary stablecoin that aims to propel cryptocurrency into the mainstream. The stablecoin, known as the Universal Dollar (UPUSD), is issued by Universal Protocol Pte. Ltd. and will initially be available on the Uphold platform.
UPUSD is the first stablecoin to be listed on Uphold, the digital money platform, and is pegged on a 1:1 ratio to the U.S. dollar. It is also the first stablecoin of its kind to be minted on-chain with every verifying transaction written to the Ethereum public blockchain so that all users can see and verify UPUSD is 100% percent backed with U.S. dollars. U.S. dollars are held at banks located in the United States with the intention of being eligible for FDIC “pass-through” deposit insurance, subject to applicable limitations.Launching first in Latin America, this stablecoin behaves like a mature financial asset with it being fully transparent and inheritable. Additionally, eligible holders of UPUSD outside the US may be able to access a potential annual return through Cred’s CredEarn product, an application available on the Uphold platform.“The Universal Dollar shows that crypto is finally delivering on the promise of mass appeal,” said JP Thieriot, CEO of Uphold. “Especially relevant in developing economies, the protections, interoperability and financial services offers a number of benefits to Uphold members.”

New BitterWorld App Offers Platform For Venting

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 19 febbraio 2019

Patrick Mimran, the French multimedia artist best known for The Billboard Project, has unveiled a new app designed to help users express their bitter life experiences. The app, BitterWorld, was designed to help users relieve their frustration from the disappointments associated with mediocre products, services, experiences, and relationships.
According to Mimran, BitterWorld is intended to make the world a better place by allowing users to share their true feelings, take a deep breath, and then move on – leaving their bad feelings behind. “I developed the app so that people who have a bitter experience can help others avoid the same fate, and at the same time, prevent themselves from holding onto negative feelings,” he said. “Whether it’s rude service at the bank, a bad restaurant meal or just a lousy day at work, our users’ insights can help make their day and others’ just a little bit better.”The app includes a skull and crossbones rating system that rates experiences by their degree of bitterness, along with a map-based display that shows the precise location of the offending situation. Other features allow users to chat, post reviews, upload images, and comment on other situations. The app also contains unique benefits designed to enrich the user experience, including a clean and intuitive interface, a series of 150-plus emojis designed by Mimran, and an engaging news feed. The ability to post photo, video and audio files allows both reviewers and visitors to become more knowledgeable about an incident.
From a social justice standpoint, Mimran believes that wrongdoers shouldn’t get away with their negative behavior unscathed and that no one should hold onto their negative feelings without some sort of release. He launched BitterWorld to provide a safe space for like-minded people around the world to share their true feelings. “Not everything in life is an Instagram glamour shot,” he said. “That’s just not reality.” BitterWorld is available on iOS and Android.

Waddell & Reed, Inc. Boosts Technology Platform

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 6 febbraio 2019

As it advances initiatives to build a stronger technology platform for its affiliated advisors, Waddell & Reed, Inc. recently signed an agreement with Refinitiv (formerly the Financial and Risk business of Thomson Reuters) to deploy the Thomson ONE advisor desktop solution as the first of many steps toward streamlining advisors’ experience and technology access.Thomson ONE is an industry-leading application that will connect through one desktop solution several of the firm’s existing financial services technology partners – including Albridge Solutions, eMoney, Envestnet and Pershing NetX360 – along with new providers that the firm anticipates announcing later this year.“Adding Thomson ONE is an important step for our advisors, as it creates the hub that brings all of our data and tools together in a desktop workspace,” said Shawn Mihal, president of Waddell & Reed, Inc. “It provides easy, single-sign-on access, simplifies technology connectivity, integrates client data in one place and allows advisors to focus on what they do best: managing client relationships and building their practice.” Mihal noted that this is the first of many steps in the strategic evolution of the Waddell & Reed broker-dealer, as announced in November, collectively focused on technological enhancements, product expansion and broadening advisor support as the firm moves toward an industry-standard model. The broker-dealer is one of the pioneers of the planning industry, founded more than 80 years ago, and today is a subsidiary of parent firm Waddell & Reed Financial, Inc. (NYSE:WDR).“Improving the advisor experience and delivering seamless integration across multiple applications has become a growing challenge for many firms,” said Marika Vilen, global head of Advisor Solutions at Refinitiv. “We are very excited to partner with Waddell & Reed to help improve advisor productivity and provide their advisors with our industry-leading desktop solution. Combined with Waddell & Reed’s technology partners, we look forward to helping advisors provide greater insights to their client relationships as well as enhance recruitment and retention for Waddell & Reed.”
Ultimately, the deployment of Thomson ONE not only brings access to a range of data and services — including client, product, processing, even compensation – but also is scalable, allowing the capture of added applications in the future.
