Food Lion Receives National Recognition for Its Customer Loyalty Program

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 13 giugno 2019

Food Lion received top honors in the “Social Impact” category at the 2019 Loyalty360 Awards, for the retailer’s loyalty program engagement with its Food Lion Feeds hunger-relief initiative. The awards recognize industry leaders across several categories centered around building trusting relationships with their customers in a proactive, meaningful and measurable way. Loyalty360 awarded finalists in 12 categories, each representing a key facet of a brand’s customer loyalty focus. Food Lion’s MVP Customer Rewards Program and its innovative Shop & Earn personalized monthly rewards program, enable customers to engage with Food Lion Feeds, the brand’s hunger-relief initiative, through promotions such as “Be a Hero, Serve a Hero” which provides meal donations to military members and their families based on customer purchases. Food Lion’s MVP Customer Rewards Program, Shop & Earn, vendor partnerships and customer support helped drive Food Lion’s recent milestone achievement of donating 500 million meals to help nourish people in need.
Since Shop & Earn was launched across the banner last year, the reward program has integrated a number of opportunities to engage customer support in Food Lion Feeds. During the Shop & Earn launch, the brand linked customer activation to a meal donation for Food Lion Feeds donating one million meals to local Feeding America food banks in its 10-state footprint; and Shop & Earn helps to drive customer support for in-store campaigns, such as “Be a Hero, Serve a Hero,” Holidays Without Hunger meal boxes, and others.
In addition to receiving Loyalty360’s top honors for social impact, Food Lion’s Shop & Earn customer rewards program was named one of the top 10 loyalty programs of 2018 and received additional recognition for its design and dedication to customer service and the loyalty industry.

Food Lion launched Food Lion Feeds in 2014 with a commitment to donating 500 million meals by the end of 2020.

Stratics Networks Announces Free Disaster Communication Program

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 9 giugno 2019

Stratics Networks, a leading provider of cloud communications and the inventors of Ringless Voicemail and IVR Polling, today announced the introduction of their Disaster Communication Program. This program will offer free emergency messaging for qualified groups in life-threatening disasters to aid in crucial relief coordination.“Getting the right information, to the right people, at the right time is absolutely crucial in a disaster situation. As a provider of a technology that can aid in emergency communications and as a responsible member of the community, we feel that we have a duty to help wherever we can,” said Stratics’ Director of Communications, Chris Collins.
Stratics Networks has offered all of its products for free as part of its comprehensive Disaster Communication Program, including offering its proprietary Ringless Voicemail technology, which allows messages to be inserted directly into a voicemail without placing a direct call. Organizations can also choose to use Stratics Networks Voice Broadcasting technology and Bulk SMS Delivery technology. Additionally, Stratics has enabled government agencies and NGOs to collect mass real-time data using PrecisePoll™, an advanced outbound IVR system, capable of making over a hundred thousand phone calls per minute.“Stratics Networks knows all too well what emergencies look like. Unfortunately, we have had friends, family and colleagues in areas that have been affected by disaster. We understand landline phones are often the last viable communication method that remains active in a disaster, as landlines draw their power directly through the telephone infrastructure and not from the outside power lines. When power fails, TVs stop working, the internet goes down and even mobile towers can fail. Copper-based landline phones should always remain in every house for this reason,” said Stratics Networks’ CEO.

Cybersecurity Degree Program

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 21 maggio 2019

Exabeam, the Smarter SIEM™ company, today announced a partnership with Deakin University in Australia to strengthen its security management approach and bolster its already distinguished cybersecurity degree program, delivered through the School of IT. The university not only deployed Exabeam Advanced Analytics to help process the large amounts of generated data and spot anomalies on its network; it also turned to the security management leader’s industry expertise to build out its curriculum and initiate a real-life career experience program within the School of IT.Deakin, headquartered in Geelong with multiple campuses in the state of Victoria, is a dynamic and contemporary university with a reputation for leading the digital frontier and strongly focused on providing education that delivers the jobs of the future. The university combines excellent research and outstanding teaching with a strong focus on supporting the communities it serves. Its security posture program, known as Deakin Shield, is a major priority for the university in 2019.Deakin’s security operations team is small but agile and values opportunities to save time and resources.Due to the nature of universities, the Deakin user base can vary from 5,000 to 50,000. The university also uses a log aggregator that generates massive amounts of feeds and alerts on the network. Therefore, the team wanted one easy-to-use, flexible security information and event management (SIEM) solution that could handle this fluctuation on the network– and present all of the security alerts generated by Deakin’s tools in a digestible, actionable manner.After researching and evaluating the key players in the SIEM market, Deakin ultimately selected Exabeam Advanced Analytics to streamline the alerts, analyze behavioral patterns on the network and quickly and accurately identify the most critical anomalies. Exabeam is currently augmenting the university’s legacy Splunk solution, which lacked these machine learning-powered analytics capabilities.

A new screening program available to eligible Medicare and Medicaid patients of Waianae Coast

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 24 aprile 2019

Comprehensive Health Center, Kalihi-Palama Health Center and The Queen’s Medical Centers aims to address critical gaps between clinical care and social services. Funded by a five-year, $4.5 million award from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to UnitedHealthcare, in partnership with the Hawaii State Department of Human Services, the Accountable Health Communities (AHC) Model was created by CMS’ Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI).UnitedHealthcare has implemented the Accountable Health Communities Model, which includes self-administered screenings – completed by using a computer tablet – to help identify and address the health-related social needs of eligible Medicare and Medicaid recipients, thereby improving their experiences and reducing inpatient and outpatient utilization, while reducing total health care costs. These health-related social needs can include employment, safe housing, reliable transportation and financial stability. The award to support program activities was provided to UnitedHealthcare; however, patients do not need to be enrolled in a UnitedHealthcare Medicare or Medicaid managed care program to participate. UnitedHealthcare is further supporting the program with an additional $6.4 million investment.“Social barriers, such as housing instability and quality, food insecurity, personal safety, and lack of transportation and affordable utilities, affect people’s ability to maintain their health and well-being,” said Katherine Keir, UnitedHealthcare Hawaii state director. “This award will enable UnitedHealthcare and our clinical partners to identify the needs of some of our most vulnerable residents and connect them to community-based organizations that can help them live healthier lives.” In addition to the partner clinical sites, several community-based organizations are working to implement the program. These include Aloha United Way, The Institute for Human Services, Catholic Charities Hawaii, Child & Family Service, Parents and Children Together and Hawaiian Community Assets.The award also funds a team of navigators who will assess the results of the screenings, make referrals, coordinate services and perform ongoing follow-up to help resolve an individual’s social needs. Since October 2018, the clinical partners have offered the comprehensive screening to more than 7,700 Medicare and Medicaid recipients. The goal is to reach 75,000 comprehensive screenings per year.An advisory board of local stakeholders helps oversee program implementation, encourage partner participation, ensure that social services are available and aligned to patients’ needs, and assess the results of the model. The advisory board includes representatives from the Governor’s office, DHS Med-QUEST administration, state government agencies, health care providers and social service organizations.

Military Veteran Partners and Empire Selling Create Mentor Program

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 17 marzo 2019

Military Veteran Partners (MVP), a mission-driven investment and advisory services company focused on Veteran businesses and employment, has designed a new mentorship program in conjunction with Dan Swift, CEO of Empire Selling, to connect military Veterans with business veterans. Swift has created a unique social selling and marketing methodology that’s been implemented by Fortune 100 companies and will help MVP honor its commitment to mentoring, networking, and its partners’ professional development.The program pairs highly accomplished sales professionals from well-known organizations with MVP’s JDog Junk Removal & Hauling business owners and sales representatives—many of them Veterans—to encourage and nurture their business’s growth.“We worked with Military Veteran Partners to develop a mentor program that matches experienced business leaders from around the country with Veterans and entrepreneurs committed to Veteran hiring, allowing direct access to expert advice, insight, and guidance,” said Swift. “The military prepares Veterans in many ways, but the civilian business world operates very differently. When building a new business, Veterans may need help brainstorming ways to position a service into a new vertical, or would like to better understand the sales and marketing process—that’s where these mentors step in. They can empower MVP’s leaders to develop professionally, build sales pipeline, maximize deal sizes, shorten sales cycles, and ultimately thrive in a business environment.”The outpouring of interest for the mentor program was immediate; 100 mentors signed up from a single LinkedIn post by Swift, and around 30 mentor partnerships have been formed since July 2018. One of those partnerships is Mike Dutter, RVP of Enterprise Sales for U.S. Central/West at Oracle, and his mentee Tim Colomer, President at JDog United and U.S. Marine Corps Veteran.

TRITON Prostate Program at ESMO 2018 Congress

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 4 ottobre 2018

Clovis Oncology, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLVS) today announced that four posters featuring data and highlighting studies from the Rubraca clinical development program will be presented at the ESMO 2018 Congress (European Society for Medical Oncology), 19-23 October, 2018, in Munich, Germany. These posters include the first presentation of initial results from the Phase 2 TRITON2 clinical trial of Rubraca, an oral, small molecule PARP inhibitor, in advanced mCRPC, as well as genomic profiling data based on tumor tissue and plasma cfDNA samples from patients who were screened following progression on prior therapy for enrollment in TRITON2 or the Phase 3 TRITON3 clinical study. Both datasets from the TRITON clinical program have been selected for inclusion in a poster discussion session that will be led by invited discussant Dr. Joaquin Mateo, of the Prostate Cancer Translational Research Group, Vall d’Hebron Institute of Oncology (VHIO), Barcelona, Spain. TRITON2 is an international, multicenter, open-label, Phase 2 study of Rubraca in men with advanced prostate cancer with BRCA gene mutations (germline or somatic) or other deleterious mutations in other homologous recombination (HR) repair genes in the metastatic castration-resistant setting. The study is currently recruiting at approximately 100 sites worldwide. On October 2, 2018, Clovis announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted Breakthrough Therapy designation for Rubraca for the treatment of adult patients with BRCA1/2-mutated mCRPC who have received at least one prior androgen receptor (AR)-directed therapy and taxane-based chemotherapy. The FDA granted this designation based on the initial efficacy and safety results from TRITON2 that will be shared at the ESMO 2018 Congress.“We look forward to presenting a first look at the TRITON2 prostate cancer data at ESMO, with a primary focus on the BRCA mutant population,” said Patrick J. Mahaffy, President and CEO of Clovis Oncology. “The data and updates we will share at ESMO emphasize our commitment to developing Rubraca beyond its initial ovarian cancer indications.”

A sancirlo è il QS World University Rankings by Program 2019, la classifica internazionale dei master, che vede eccellere la Scuola con i master specialistici in Management, Business Analytics, Finance e Marketing e l’MBA Full Time. L’edizione 2019 appena rilasciata ha analizzato più di 700 corsi di oltre 400 Business School e Università distribuite in 50 Paesi.
La School of Management del Politecnico di Milano si colloca sempre nella parte alta dei rankings, nonostante le Scuole analizzate siano state quest’anno molto più numerose. La prestazione migliore è quella dell’International Master in Project Management (iMPM), che all’interno dei Master in Management ha ottenuto valutazioni superiori alla media in 4 su 5 degli indicatori presi in esame, in particolare nel “Value for money”, o rapporto qualità-prezzo, che ha raggiunto quasi il 100% (92,8 contro una media di 65), e l’“Employability”, cioè le chance che i suoi studenti hanno di accedere al mercato del lavoro (82 contro 56,3).
Molto buona anche la performance dell’MBA Full Time, che nel ranking dedicato ai Global MBA si è classificato al 35simo posto tra i 74 programmi europei presi in esame, risultando assai competitivo nel ritorno sull’investimento, cioè il valore generato dalla spesa sostenuta, e mantenendo un primato sulla “Diversity”, ossia la percentuale di donne e di stranieri sia tra gli studenti che all’interno della faculty.
“Secondo questo ranking, assolutamente autorevole, le nostra posizione nel mondo e in Europa si consolida di anno in anno – commenta Andrea Sianesi, Dean del MIP Politecnico di Milano – dimostrando la correttezza delle scelte che abbiamo operato, prime fra tutte il processo di internazionalizzazione e la grande attenzione alla ‘diversity’ in ogni sua forma”. La Scuola ha poi raggiunto ottimi punteggi anche negli indicatori che misurano “Academic Reputation”, “Faculty Staff with Phd”, “Research Impact”, “Employer Reputation” e Entrepreneurship&Alumni Outcomes.
Ancora, la School of Management del Politecnico di Milano si colloca al 35esimo posto nel mondo per quanto riguarda i Master in Business Analytics e al 52esimo per quelli in Finance, entrambi con punteggi superiori alla media (addirittura 25 punti percentuali in più per il MIF) per quanto riguarda le prospettive occupazionali. Trentanovesimo posto per il Master in Marketing, categoria presa in esame quest’anno per la prima volta.
La School of Management del Politecnico di Milano è composta dal Dipartimento di Ingegneria Gestionale e dal MIP, la Business School dell’Ateneo milanese.
