Reyets Helps to Determine the Best Course of Action for All

2018-11-18

In the Information Age, one of the things we have learned is that no one seems to know what their actual rights are, and that includes law enforcement. This gets even worse when you travel across the country, as things can change from town to town, not to mention from state to state. All of this combines into an environment where you may not know what you can and cannot do in any particular scenario. Fortunately, thanks to mobile technology, we now have a product called [url=https://www.reyets.com/]Reyets[/url] (pronounced rights). This system is designed specifically to give you a heads-up on what your rights are wherever you are. Imagine walking down a sidewalk and being approached by a police officer. The officer begins to ask you questions that you feel are inappropriate to your current situation. Can you refuse to answer or are you required to interact with the officer? Can you simply walk away, or should you ask if you are free to go? Those requirements change based on location, but Reyets can tell you, based on GPS, what you can do and how you should react to the situation. We all know that a simple situation can go from calm to chaos in the blink of an eye. We've all seen a simple traffic stop get out of hand and end in tragedy. Reyets knows this and includes the ability to record your incident. In fact, in areas without required two-party consent, the app will automatically record while the app is open. Afterward, you can decide what to do with the recording; you can share it on social media, contact the press, find a lawyer, and more. Reyets is available now for iOS with Android coming in the future. Check out [url=https://www.reyets.com/]the company's website[/url] to learn more about the platform. [spotlight]It is important to remember: just because you can do something doesn't mean you should. Use caution and your best judgment in all situations.[/spotlight] [collision2018sponsor]

Lixo Verde: The Ultimate in Recycling for a Better Future

2018-11-18

The list of problems caused by landfills seems to keep getting longer, day by day. As does the growing frustration of those of us who are concerned about the environment. We've come a long way with many recycling initiatives. With large cities making big strides to become zero waste, to large beverage companies recycling water. And recycled items including things like roads, trophies and even jackets. But there are still so many items that we can't seem to do much with. At least not anything truly useful. Luis Martinez is the CEO of [url=http://lixoverde.com.br]Lixo Verde[/url], a Brazilian company that is taking recycling to extraordinary new heights. The name itself means green waste. Their intent is to get the waste out of nature. He stopped by our studio at Collision Conference 2018 to give us the details of this amazing process that recycles tires. That's right, tires! And not into playground ground cover or heavy ottomans this time. The company developed a pyrolysis reactor. Basically, they collect the used tires from auto mechanic shops and a chemical reaction occurs inside the chamber of the reactor. Now, you might think that this would have the opposite effect on the environment. But actually, there is no oxygen in the chamber, therefore no combustion inside. The result is a very potent gas and a black carbon powder. The powder goes right back to the industry to make more rubber for tires. And the gas can be used to make energy. This process recycles 100% of each tire. No waste and the materials get sold back for reuse. They are currently focusing on tires, but in the future, the system can be also used for plastics and any petroleum-based materials. They also look forward to someday moving forward with other forms of waste. After you watch the full video to learn more about the process and their two pilot plants in Brazil.

Creative and Exciting New App for Attending a Concert

2018-11-15

Our team was very excited to meet Mike Brown and hear about his new app called [url=https://mysonglist.com/]MySongList[/url]. This is a creative new app for allowing people to access entertainment, particularly live music. It is basically a virtual jukebox for live music. The user can literally be sitting in his living room and can listen to an artist who is performing somewhere maybe across the country and hear it live without being there. The user can then enter a request for certain songs and not interrupt the artist. One of the cooler things is the ability to purchase their merchandise, such as CDs, shirts or posters. You are also able to put in a tip for their granting your requests. Payment can be made through the app. The app makes listening to your favorite genre of music even from around the world live as it is occurring. It can also notify the user when a certain artist is about to go live so that they can log in and listen to the concert. They can virtually "attend" a concert without actually being there and still request songs. You can even listen in your bunny slippers! As an artist, you any be very skilled in certain genres of music. With this app, you can tailor the list to your audience for each venue, depending on the area you are playing in. People in that area can then request a song or songs from that list as it goes into the queue. Another feature is the proprietary software that allows you to see your lyrics or chords as you are playing. Mike's partner is a programmer. He came home from a gig unhappy. It seems the paper he'd passed out to tables for song requests were all getting soaked with spilled beer. It costs the artist money to provide that paper and the people still were walking up to him and asking for requests instead of writing it down. Hence the idea for MySongList is born. Other musicians were all on board and loved the idea of networking on the app. Another fun area to use this is for karaoke. When you use it for this, you can see in the queue where you are in the lineup to sing. If your party is anxious to leave and you have one last song to sing, you can pay a little bit, say $1.00-$5.00 for a "priority bump". What a cool idea for karaoke! There is no cost to the user for this app. However, the artists will pay$20.00 a month for the year. There is the ability to add a tip from the listener.

Findable Has a Stunning New Idea for Employers to Search for You

2018-11-15

Today, there are so many different ways to find a job that the process can be overwhelming. That's mostly because the majority of the work is placed on the applicant, despite the fact that both sides have a vested interest in the process. While the job seeker is in need of work, the company is in need of someone to fill an opening. So, why does the job seeker always have to apply to the company, instead of the other way around? [url=https://findable.co/]Findable[/url] believes that companies should be able to apply to job seekers, and that is exactly what their platform allows. If you are searching for a job, you can create an account on Findable. Once you sign in, the system will walk you through setting up your virtual resume. The profile is broken into basic sections, like Contact Info and Languages, but also has more practical sections, like Experience, Education, Responsibilities, and Skills. After your profile is created, it will generate a resume for you, based on the information you entered. You can download and share this resume in any way you seem fit. However, where Findable sets itself apart is in its reverse search capability. Rather than you searching for open positions, companies with open positions will search for you. Based on your resume, they can locate the candidates that match their requirements. If you meet their needs, they can contact you and pitch the job to you. From there, you will go through a fairly standard hiring process, all logged through the platform. You can see how many profile views you've had, whether you have been shortlisted by employers, as well as see how many have listed you as contacted, interviewing, and hired. You can [url=https://findable.co]create your profile now[/url] for free and start looking for the right job. [collision2018sponsor]

Flaregun AR Helps You to Locate What Matters Most in Real Life

Flaregun AR Helps You to Locate What Matters Most in Real Life

2018-11-14

Imagine being at an event, like a music festival, with your friend or family member, with thousands of attendees. You each go different directions and agree to meet back up in an hour. When that hour comes up, you cannot find your friend, so you call them to try and sync up. You each try and describe where you are in a sea of similarities, making it nearly impossible, and definitely annoying, to finally find one another. Most people can relate to this scenario, and we have all wished there was an easier solution to the problem. Enter [url=https://www.flaregun.com/]Flaregun AR[/url], an Augmented Reality platform that is the middle ground between making AR useful and helping you find your friends at an event. Reimagining the previous example, when you cannot find your friend, rather than calling them and giving vague directions, you simply open the Flaregun AR app, request to find your friend, and use the camera and GPS built-in to your phone to locate your friend. It works very similar to Pokemon Go, in that you can see through your camera on your screen, and arrows point you toward your "target," only in this case you're not looking for Pikachu. Once you have your phone pointed at your friend, you can begin moving toward one another. Obviously, this is way better than trying to call, for a number of reasons. First, you're not dependant on your friend to give you accurate location information. Instead, the Flaregun platform does all of the work for you. Second, at a concert, festival, conference, etc., the noise is going to make it more difficult to hear. Even better, it works for more than just finding friends at an event. You can drop waypoints for things like your parking spot and never fight over which section you parked in at the mall or theme park. Flaregun AR is [url=https://www.flaregun.com/]available now[/url] for iOS, with Android capability coming soon. [collision2018sponsor]

Contento Gives Small Business a Better Way to Manage Their Social Media

Contento Gives Small Business a Better Way to Manage Their Social Media

2018-11-14

All of the big businesses focus a lot of their advertising money into digital marketing. Whether it be through search ads, pre-roll, mid-roll, or post-roll video ads (like on YouTube or Facebook), live ads (like on Twitch), or podcasts, digital is the place to be. Unfortunately for small businesses, the cost to get into digital advertising and to see any success from it is so high they normally cannot participate. That is exactly the problem that [url=https://www.contento.us]Contento[/url] set out to solve. The team members had previously worked for standard ad agencies and had noticed that small businesses simply could not participate. They like to think of Contento as your "virtual, digital marketer." To create a lower cost solution, Contento looked for efficiencies provided by technology. As a client, you help them create a profile of your business, by browsing through related sites, by describing your business and your customer base, the algorithm is able to generate a model of the company. Once the model is created, the system will tell you which online channels will be a good fit for your business. For example, a media company would likely have success on YouTube and Facebook, but might not have any need for Google+ or Instagram. Contento will also help create content for those channels, especially targeted for each channel. For example, a square video is successful on Instagram, portrait-style video works best for IGTV, while traditional landscape video is more successful on YouTube. While there may be a lot of technology involved in the system, one of the things that Contento prides themselves in is the human factor. Currently, the company works directly with their clients to ensure that what is being produced is in line with the needs of small businesses. This is an important feature because many small businesses place a high value on knowing the people that they are dealing with, and knowing that there is a person there if they are in need. Contento is [url=https://www.contento.us]available now[/url], starting at $75 per month for the automated service. [collision2018sponsor]

RozaRoute Takes the Guesswork Out of Cleaning Estimates

RozaRoute Takes the Guesswork Out of Cleaning Estimates

2018-11-07

When most people think of data analytics, the industry that comes immediately to mind is finance. While that association makes sense, in reality, any industry can benefit from looking at data. As the technology has improved and artificial intelligence platforms have become more accessible, the businesses that have benefited the most involve a lot of manual processes. For example, office cleaning. The process is almost entirely manual, with people traveling from location to location and performing fairly repetitive tasks. [url=https://getroute.com/]RozaRoute[/url] is a new product designed to analyze cleaning company behaviors and help these companies better estimate the cost of new contracts. Starting out, the product can use standard timings for things like cleaning windows, vacuuming floors, and more, to create a time estimate for a new contract. You enter the needs of the contract, and it will base its estimates on averages across the RozeRoute customer base. Over time, it will learn your team's timings and increase the accuracy of your estimates even more. For example, let's say a company has 3 offices, a conference room with a table, and a waiting area. This office wants the floors vacuumed twice per week, windows cleaned weekly, and the trash taken out daily. By entering the information about this contract into RozaRoute, you can get an accurate estimate on how much time, and how many people, will be required to accomplish this job. In the past, you had to manually calculate and hope you got it right, then probably add 10% on top to account for miscalculations. With RozaRoute, you know that your estimates are more accurate and, therefore, there is less waste for you and the client. RozaRoute is looking for [url=https://getroute.com/]early access and beta testers[/url] now. [collision2018sponsor]

A SafetyPIN That Can Help Protect You from People Online in Real Life

A SafetyPIN That Can Help Protect You from People Online in Real Life

2018-11-07

If you have spent any time online interacting with new people, you know it can be a questionable experience. Is the person you are talking to the person they claim, or are they possibly a St. Bernard that got ahold of a phone? There is absolutely no great way to tell. That question becomes even more important when you are considering inviting the person into your life, either as a date, a client, a housekeeper, babysitter, or more. That is where [url=https://www.getasafetypin.com/]SafetyPIN Technologies[/url] comes in. Their platform allows a person to generate a third-party verified account that shows that they are likely a safe person. Think of it like a background check that you perform on yourself, but you only share a verified status with others. The recipient does not get to see the results of the check, they only get to see that you have a verified SafetyPIN. This idea creates an environment of protection for both individuals: the sender's privacy is protected and the recipient's safety is protected. So, how does it work? Let's say you want to be a house sitter, and you sign up on an online platform for people looking for house sitters. Before you do, you go [url=https://www.getasafetypin.com/]get a SafetyPIN[/url]. The company will ask some questions about you to be able to do research. This will include SSN for a background check, as well as personality-type questions to look for problems. Once the process is done, if you are deemed to not have major red flags, you will receive a personal identification number (PIN), that you can share with prospective clients of your house sitting business. If red flags are found, you will not receive a PIN. SafetyPIN is already supported by some big-name services, like LinkedIn, Bumble, HomeAway, and Nextdoor, and the company plans to expand their partnership network over time. You do not need to be on a supported platform to request a PIN from someone else, though, as you can verify right on the [url=https://www.getasafetypin.com/]company's website[/url].

Servicebot Makes Billing a Positive Experience for Everyone

2018-11-06

One of the hardest parts of creating a product is getting the billing system together. Creating a pricing structure, then programming an interface to a billing system, and then creating a script to run on a regular basis to charge the customer for the billing level is complicated. Add to that having a customer who wants to upgrade or downgrade their features. What happens when a credit card gets declined? There are a lot of conditions to consider, and getting it right the first time is difficult. Luckily, [url=https://www.servicebot.io/]Servicebot[/url] is here to remove the difficulty. Rather than having to consider all of those billing questions, Servicebot allows a developer to focus on their product's features and, with just a few lines of code, can implement Servicebot to handle all of the billing conditions. All you have to do is create an account, setup your billing options, embed the code on your website and let Servicebot handle the rest. The service supports recurring billing, as well as discounts for paying annually, and add-in features on top of your standard subscription. There is really no standard billing scenario that cannot be handled through this service. From a management standpoint, companies can see all of their information about subscriptions and purchases in one place. The dashboard shows information like conversions (how many people became customers), churn rate (how many users left the platform), total subscriptions, paying subscriptions, invoice rate and more. These features make Servicebot not just a developer's best friend, but also is an important tool for management, as well. In addition to the plug-and-play capabilities, Servicebot also offers a full-featured API to implement capabilities in a more customized way. This gives developers the ability to include billing management directly in their product, rather than relying on a website to manage billing. It also allows developers to test the features that a user is paying for to ensure that they are receiving all of the features they are supposed to get. Servicebot is [url=https://www.servicebot.io/]available now[/url] with pricing based on monthly revenue. [collision2018sponsor]

Exciting New Breakthrough in Medical Field with DAT

2018-11-06

Sirli Roosnomm, who represents Horizon Business Hub, has brought us a new and exciting device for health care. There is now available a test to detect astigmatism early in children long before other machines can. This is called DAT, which is the [url=http://direct-astigmatic-test.com/]Direct Astigmatism Test[/url]. That is a very important thing to be able to do. There are other machines out there that will do this but the children are as old as 7 or 8. This machine will catch this problem as young as 3 or 4. The DAT will also be able to find an undetected issue such as a heart problem which could result in a serious or fatal heart attack if not found. Myasthenia Gravis, a genetic disorder, is an abnormal weakening of certain muscles and is difficult to detect because there are so many other disorders which also have those symptoms. Just going to a doctor sometimes doesn't get results early enough. Most people do not even go for a checkup unless there are real problems and many times it is too late to correct them. With DAT you can find any issues and talk to your doctor about them. With children, having them take an eye test is difficult because they may not be old enough to read an eye chart yet. DAT uses LED lights and colors to assist with their results. It asks them what do they see and they respond by answering simple questions. In adults, they are asked about textures of surfaces as well as colors. Since they say the eyes are the mirrors of the soul, there may be underlying health issues that could go unnoticed until too late. Sirli sees that there are many people that could use this early detection whose very job it is to use their eyes specifically, such as pilots, truck drivers, or even surgeons. This test is very easy and can be self-administered if needed, although it is not being marketed for home use. The price point is somewhere around $1,500.00. They are hoping to be able to make an app for it to be available for a mobile device. For more info go to the [url=http://direct-astigmatic-test.com/]company website[/url]. [collision2018sponsor]

This week, Avram Piltch is here to help you prevent buying an SSDud. This holiday, SSDs are expected to drop in price greatly, but not every drive is a good price. Sometimes, a sale price is higher than the regular price at another retailer. Sometimes, a drive that is inexpensive, is that way because it is not a quality product. Luckily, there are some great ways to spot a bad deal before you spend your money.
