October 26, 2017 – Ottawa, Ontario – APX, North America’s leader in building and onsite data solutions, announced today that it has received the IEEE Outstanding SME High Technology Company Recognition Award. APX received the award specifically for its rapid growth as an industrial organization focused on high technology for the eSociety. The award places APX amongst other IEEE alumni, including Shopify, Juniper Networks, YOUi. Labs Inc., March Networks, and more.

IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization with more than 423,000 members in more than 160 countries, is dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. The goal of IEEE and its members is to inspire a global community through its highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities.

APX has now become one of IEEE’s many globally recognized companies—in particular, for its role in spearheading the most advanced development of Smart City Applications as they pertain to ever-evolving eSociety initiatives. In fact, since its inception, APX Building and Onsite Data Solutions has fully embraced and revolutionized the concept of Smart City infrastructure. APX knows that our future will rely on manageable and accessible data that can be easily and securely shared with any organization and individual, thus it is essential for success in the modern age. This is why APX has become the unequivocal North American leader in Smart City Building and Onsite Data Solutions.

“Being recognized by IEEE as the 2017 outstanding high tech company is a tremendous accomplishment for our team,” commented Paul Martin, President and CEO of APX. “For us, the importance of this award is yet another indicator that our company is on the right track in making our world safer for all involved. As Smart Cities and emergency services continue to embrace mobile-first technology to make our world a safer place to live, we are creating a safer environment for all—and, in turn, for everyone in our global society. For this reason, we at APX are proud to continue to develop leading-edge mobile technology to improve how we live today and in our future.”

“At IEEE our focus is to spotlight and recognize those companies whose innovation most positively impacts our global society,” said Dr. Wahab Almuhtadi, Chair, IEEE Ottawa Section Awards and Recognition Committee. “In this case, the technology that APX has created in its CityScape suite is set to revolutionize the world of first responders, police and military, and more—creating a safer world for all.”

With the APX CityScape Suite, Smart Cities are real and here today: EMS first responders, law enforcement and military, and building services professionals, can quickly and easily capture and view comprehensive building and onsite data records, sharing to any designated party with ease. The CityScape Suite is comprised of two distinct robust applications: SmartCapture and SmartView.

APX aligns with FirstNet to deliver mobile-first technology to first responders

APX solution suite enables first responders to immediately create
digital emergency pre-plans and seamlessly share them through any mobile device and network

Ottawa, Canada—October 17, 2017—APX, North America’s leader in building and onsite data solutions, announced today that it has joined the ranks of many of the world’s largest companies to deliver mobile-first technology to first responders across the US by fully supporting the efforts of the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet).

As the leading organization committed to transforming public-safety operations, FirstNet’s network is complemented by an array of public safety–driven solutions that provides additional value to first responders. This goal—to transform public-safety operations—has brought about APX’s Smart City building and onsite data solutions suite: CityScape, a platform built on the premise that all cities now require comprehensive, actionable data to manage the magnitude of scale represented by evolving technology.

APX’s SmartCapture mobile application now enables first responders to create fully digital, comprehensive emergency pre-plans, virtually eliminating the need for paper records. Additionally, the application reduces pre-plan creation time so exponentially that precious resources can be allocated to other tasks, while still meeting governmental mandates for pre-plan development. In fact, many cities using APX’s CityScape suite have indicated that the time required to create emergency pre-plans has, in many instances, dropped from days to less than an hour.

To further leverage this new mobile approach to data capture and dissemination, APX also offers SmartView as part of its CityScape suite, enabling the highly secure dissemination of plans and data to specific first responders by way of any device browser. In short, any pre-plan can be sent directly to a first responder to be viewed on any mobile-enabled device instantly, making it possible for them to plan, coordinate, and respond in real time—without the need for a paper-based records repository.

“Every day, we rely on our brave first responders to keep us safe,” commented Paul Martin, President and CEO of APX. “They are committed to what they do, and they need tools that will match that commitment and keep pace with evolving demands.

“Using out-of-date methods, it currently takes considerable time and effort to create an emergency pre-plan, but this can now be easily rectified. Using our platform, the ease and speed of pre-plan creation, combined with the ability to immediately and securely share plans and captured data, improves preparation and results in safer, faster, and smarter outcomes for everyone involved.

“I am personally dedicated to helping all first responders, and our company’s alignment with FirstNet’s goals is a tangible representation of that dedication and the commitment of everyone at APX.”

The CityScape suite has already been adopted by many of the largest cities across North America, from Austin, Texas to Vancouver, British Columbia. In so many cities, buildings databases grow exponentially every day. It is this fact that illustrates the growing need to streamline the capture and dissemination of data to create truly Smart City initiatives.

Attego announces release of revolutionary new ESG Impact Solutions Platform

Research Triangle Park, N.C. – October 3, 2017 – Attego, the global leader of ESG impact solutions, announced today the launch of its new industry-leading ESG management platform—one that encompasses elements critical to both strong financial returns and positive environmental, social, and governance (ESG) impacts across the value chain of corporate clients.

The platform leverages advanced technologies and cognitive computing to resolve complex sustainability challenges faced by organizations and their partners across multiple industries and sectors. Named for its inherent benefit for users, the INSIGHT platform consists of three distinct solutions that form an integrated process while also serving as stand-alone products: altumINSIGHT for Social and Web Monitoring Intelligence, sensusINSIGHT for Community Perception and Behavioral Measurement, and valoremINSIGHT for Community and Social Investment Optimization.

altumINSIGHT combines an advanced analytics and monitoring engine with highly skilled analysts to monitor social media data related to a given industry, topic, or operation. It helps companies identify known stakeholder and community sentiment, understand trends across time, detect viral and fake news, and track shareholder reactions. The results position companies to be strategically responsive to change, capitalizing on opportunities and identifying minor issues before they evolve into major events or crises.

sensusINSIGHT is an in-depth data collection and analysis platform that measures and monitors how communities feel about an organization at the local and regional level. It establishes a baseline and provides ongoing services to benchmark that data over time. A core output is the Social License to Operate Index (SOLOi), a relative score that represents a company’s ability to maintain efficient operations while avoiding community conflict.

valoremINSIGHT is a rigorous financial platform that works in alignment with an organization’s mission and business values to identify, optimize, execute, and track sustainability and CSR activities as an integrated portfolio of work, quantifying the ROI and positive impact of its investments. It helps attract capital through additional investment, yields cost-sharing and other efficiencies, and assists in developing lasting partnerships.

“Today’s globalized business environment requires a multitude of factors to be monitored, measured, and managed for ongoing success,” commented Jason Norman, Attego’s managing director. “In coordinating and directing so many projects worldwide, we see organizations across many different industries struggling with similar challenges and risks. Increased connectivity means increased demands from shareholders, communities, and other groups; companies seeking sustainable operations face the ever-present need to evolve. In part, that means new thinking and new tools that enable the achievement of business objectives. Our INSIGHT platform not only addresses this evolution, but also offers clients a simplified approach to reaching their goals. We want to turn down the noise generated by confusing or disconnected service offerings and the many other inherent complications associated with solving ESG challenges.”

Attego operates as a division of RTI International. Founded in 1958, RTI is one of the world’s leading research institutes, providing scientific and technical services in health, education and training, surveys and statistics, international development, economic and social policy, energy and the environment, technology and innovation, and other practice areas. With more than 5,000 staff working in more than 75 countries, RTI is dedicated to improving the human condition by turning knowledge into practice, applying more than 250 scientific disciplines to solving the world’s most complex problems.

Attego draws upon these extensive resources and capabilities to provide solutions to meet the needs and demands of commercial clients and investors by improving the effectiveness of sustainability investments and corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities.

Attego joins Development Partner Institute Advisory Council

Attego, the global leader in ESG impact solutions, is pleased to announce that it has been invited to join the Development Partner Institute (DPI) Advisory Council. As a technical advisory member, Attego’s ESG Impact Solutions complement and support DPI’s aspiration to fundamentally change the extractive business model of the mining industry from insular and reactive, to an integrated and proactive development partner, delivering on economic, environmental, and social shared purpose.

The Advisory Council is composed of industry leaders who will regularly engage to further DPI’s innovative and transformative multi-stakeholder work. Attego’s contributions to the work will be invaluable. Its Social Intelligence Monitoring Platform, altumINSIGHT, enables in-depth social and web monitoring intelligence.

  • Identifying changes in stakeholder sentiment around a project
  • Identifying insights and data supporting outreach activities
  • Collecting data that can be used in response to a crisis or PR issue
  • Creating a factual record

As part of altumINSIGHT, Attego has developed a proprietary trust index that tracks overall trust of the operation based upon online conversations. Trust volatility and the momentum of its change is also calculated—Moving Average Trust Volatility (MATV) and Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD)—and monitored, providing insight into how a mining operation is being perceived over time, and when interventions are required.

Attego’s ESG Impact Solutions together with its Social Intelligence Monitoring Platform, dovetail with DPI’s mission: To build bridges with groups that have a stake in mining by gaining trust, developing a common language, cultivating understanding, and fostering new collaborations.

They also support DPI’s principles that are core to the Development Partner Approach by providing a framework for the mining industry that moves it from:

  • Being known as the “isolated extractive” industry to the “resource development” industry
  • Cost and production measurement to a long-term, value-creation culture
  • Short-term profit to long-term equity; operational risk management to sustainable development
  • “Check the box” procedure-driven engagement to ongoing, meaningful, and substantive collaboration
  • One-dimensional technical managers to leaders who can navigate the risks and opportunities presented by geopolitical, environmental, governmental, social, and economic issues
  • Standalone sustainability technocrats to integrated systems thinkers
  • Prescribed, closed, linear, formulaic approaches to ensuring creativity and innovation through inclusion of diverse world views

Attego’s demonstrated expertise in performing multidisciplinary integrated activities that result in benefits for all stakeholder groups, will reinforce and facilitate DPI’s mission to engage the mining ecosystem to shape a new approach and way of thinking, and to advance and extend transformative innovative thinking around shifting to an integrated and proactive approach.

Inteleca IT Business Solutions Announces Full Lifetime Warranties on all IT Hardware

Far surpasses that of OEM and extended warranty offerings 

Atlanta, Georgia—April 20, 2017—Inteleca, North America’s leading provider of IT Business Solutions, announced today that it will now be offering lifetime warranties on all hardware sold to end-users, beginning April 19, 2017. In addition, the company will continue providing an extended warranty to all resellers—far exceeding that of many hardware providers.

The move to offer lifetime warranties comes as part of Inteleca’s new brand and its established legacy of customer-centric market positioning. Inteleca continues to draw a stark comparison between its services and its competitors’ services—competitors who only offer 30 days of protection. Inteleca end-user customers can now look forward to full lifetime warranties on all IT hardware products, including the high-end networking equipment that they purchase.

The new lifetime warranty is also in lockstep with the company’s history—from its inception, Inteleca has always provided extended warranties to resellers, offering them a full 90 days. Like its end-user practice, Inteleca has always been dedicated to the reseller and channel community.

And for all end-user and reseller customers, Inteleca will also continue to offer its 10-day warranty that covers visual damage. Again, ensuring that any products delivered always meet expectations.

“Though many may find a lifetime warranty surprising—especially in this industry—we feel that it is an essential service for our customers,” commented President and CEO, Paul Hogg. “It is truly our core belief at Inteleca that our customers’ IT infrastructure is mission critical to their business. Therefore, we need to take as much of a stake in their business as they do to ensure their ongoing success. By extending them a lifetime warranty, they can now concentrate on far more important aspects of their business, knowing we are there to support them in this way.”

Inteleca end-user customers who need to exercise their warranties, will experience the company’s expert and expedited customer service. For any IT product, Inteleca will either repair it; replace it within 10 days upon receipt of the issue with the exact model, or a model with the same or better functionality; or fully refund the purchase price.

And for resellers who need warranty help, Inteleca will continue to field all service calls through their call center. If an issue cannot be resolved, the Inteleca team will immediately send a replacement and will then issue a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number for the return of the defective equipment.

As North America’s leading provider of IT Business Solutions, Inteleca has become the de facto company in providing top companies with infrastructure and architecture design, hardware procurement, and maintenance services, excelling in the design of vendor-neutral solutions. Furthermore, Inteleca is in the vanguard for its cutting-edge Cisco Optical Networking Solutions.

Inteleca continues to represent all major technology brands such as Cisco, Juniper Networks, Extreme Networks, Brocade, HP, Dell, IBM and Lenovo. In addition, the company is an industry leader in all aspects of the secondary IT hardware market, including new and Inteleca-certified, pre-owned networking hardware.
