U.S. Company Turns to BRAZIL to Advance New Technology

We Don’t Make the Smartphone…We Make it Smarter, Safer, Courteous and Compliant.

With a registered bill on the table, U.S. based Try Safety First (TSF) is deploying time, talent and resources into Brazil to advance its new mobile phone protocol technology. With its white paper being published in more than twenty-four countries across the globe, it is Brazilwhere TSF is looking to launch.

When asked why Brazil , TSF CEO John Fischer said, “TSF is eager to work with all governments and strategic partners to advance our patent-pending protocol technology. But to date, it is the congressional leaders of Brazil who have demonstrated the greatest desire and responsiveness to tackle the serious cell phone problems in their country.”

According to the World Health Organization, environment specific (prisons, court rooms, classrooms, in flight and behind the wheel) cell phone problems are costing theworld’s top industrialized countries between one and three percent of GDP. Fischer agrees societal cell phone problems are dynamic, devastating and very costly. But he also expands the statement by saying they can easily be eradicated with the implementation of TSF protocol technology.

TSF is the world leader for mobile device protocol development. According to Fischer, the advancement of TSF’s protocol technology will provide an optional tool for parents, teachers, judges, wardens, pilots and employers to easily eliminate cell phone problems within their respective environments. TSF’s primary objective is to establish a uniform global standard throughout the wireless industry to increase the functionality of mobile devices to provide simple solutions to remedy grand societal problems.

Millions of Households at Risk June 12 – DTV Converter Boxes

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has repeatedly issued notices warning that millions of households are still unprepared for the June 12, 2009, national deadline for conversion of free over-the-air television broadcasting from analog format to digital format called “DTV”. While most households across the USA receive television programming by cable or satellite, an estimated 20 to 30 million households today still depend on over-the-air broadcasting to receive their television programming. The FCC has advised that for these households to continue to receive free over-the-air DTV television programming after June 12 they must purchase and install a digital-to-analog set-top converter box, yet DTV Across America predicts that for many households a DTV converter box will not be enough to avoid reception loss. Many households will also need to upgrade their television antenna, or subscribe to satellite or cable service, to accomplish the DTV transition. Unless these households can successfully navigate the DTV transition, their primary source of entertainment and information for public safety, public health, homeland security and civic engagement will literally go dark after June 12.

DTV Across America (www.DTVAcrossAmerica.com) is ready to receive the millions of possible inquiries about the DTV transition, especially on and after June 12. DTV Across America is a public/private partnership organized to serve as an “honest broker” for citizens nationwide who need information and assistance about options to ensure television signal reception following the June 12 DTV transition. Our purpose is to provide all citizens with both “high touch” and “high tech” solutions, comprehensive information about the DTV transition process and turnkey services and discounted installation and equipment prices for broadcast reception options.

Households that currently receive free over-the-air television broadcasting should to go now to the DTV Across America website www.DTVAcrossAmerica.com to determine their risk of reception loss after June 12 and to explore antenna, cable and satellite solutions, or call the DTV Across America toll-free consumer information number 1-800-359-1299 for various reception options.

Telecom Expense Management Industry Association (TEMIA) Reports 20% Growth and It Begins International Expansion

The Telecom Expense Management Industry Association (TEMIA) (http://www.temia.org), the authoritative voice for the Telecom Expense Management (TEM) industry, today announced that five new companies have joined the association. More new member signings are expected with recent program expansion and a reduction of membership fees that demonstrates the financial strength of TEMIA.

In today’s cost conscious environment, enterprises are actively seeking help from TEM providers. “A TEM provider’s membership in TEMIA should be a strong consideration for any organization evaluating TEM solutions. TEMIA membership indicates thought leadership, an investment in the future of effective TEM solutions, and a long term commitment to the TEM market,” said Al Subbloie president and CEO of Tangoe (http://www.tangoe.com) one of the original founders of TEMIA.

The TEM market is growing as more organizations learn about the opportunity to improve supply chain management for telecom expenses and reduce expenses through optimizing inefficient processes. “TEMIA is ideally positioned to drive adoption of key performance benchmarks and metrics across the industry. We are eager to contribute to that effort in a meaningful way,” said David C. Snow, Vice President, Customer and Field Operations for Cerylion (http://www.cerylion.com).

While many of TEMIA members are competitors, they recognize the value that an association can bring. TEMIA is well positioned to help enterprises and TEM providers by developing industry standards for electronic bonding, electronic billing, and augmenting overall service quality. “TEMIA is the foremost organization leading the efforts of creating awareness for Telecom Expense Management at enterprises. It provides a platform to discuss telecom billing issues and standards. It also provides a framework for members to improve the overall TEM industry,” said Pankaj Gupta (PJ) President and CEO of Amtel. (http://www.amtelnet.com).

TEMIA occupies a niche that does not compete with other analysts or firms that offer educational programs. “We believe that our joining TEMIA is essential to our business future for two reasons: to cooperate with and learn from respected competitors and to work more closely to insure that the TEM industry develops real industry metrics to better service all clients,” said Joseph B. Chopek, President, Avalon Global Solutions Inc. (http://www.avalonglobalsolutions.com)

“The number of providers that offer some form of a TEM or TLM solution keeps growing; end-users need industry standards to assess and evaluate the viability of these solutions. I am encouraged by TEMIA’s accomplishments over the past twelve months towards its mission of developing and promoting industry standards. TEMIA is now well positioned to guide this growing industry for years to come,” said Troy McCracken CEO of Spectrum, Inc. (http://www.3spectrum.com)

The association is also expanding overseas with the recent addition a member with headquarters in France and new signings expected from other firms based in Europe, Latin America, Canada, India, and Asia. “We joined to learn from other companies, share our practices, and help promote TEM standards in Europe,” stated Shahram Sharif, Vice President of Global Strategy and Business Development, for Anatole (http://www.anatole.fr).

“TEMIA is shaping the future of the industry, and we are pleased these organizations have decided to join us in that effort,” said David C. Perdue, TEMIA membership chairman and CEO of Asentinel (http://www.asentinel.com).. “As the authoritative voice for the TEM industry, TEMIA offers companies significant resources and advocacy, while educating potential customers about the value of TEM.”

 

TEMIA, the Telecom Expense Management Industry Association, was founded in late 2006 by the country’s largest Telecom Expense Management (TEM) service providers that cumulatively manage $31 billion of telecom and data spend. TEMIA’s mission is to raise awareness and knowledge of the benefits of TEM solutions, to improve the quality and value of TEM solutions through the development and promotion of industry standards, and to cultivate shared industry knowledge among TEM providers, business partners, telecom service providers, and enterprise clients.
