IT Consultant Reports Multiple Monitors Increase Productivity and Customer Satisfaction


Hoboken, New Jersey (PRWEB) July 17, 2014

A new article from eMazzanti Technologies cites both outside professional research and in-house experience to show that multiple monitors (four per technician in this case) increase staff productivity up to 65% with a resulting increase in customer satisfaction. The article makes a strong case for multiple monitor setups which have been questioned in some recent publications.

Limiting yourself to a single monitor is like having a desk the size of a single piece of notebook paper. More digital workspace always translates into more productivity, stated Carl Mazzanti, CEO, eMazzanti, Technologies

The informative article, Multiple Monitors Increase Support Staff Productivity and Customer Satisfaction, identifies the specific benefits of using multiple monitors and lists highlights from the substantial industry research to back up the IT Consulting companys figures and experience. Below are a few excerpts. Click here for the complete article.

eMazzanti Improves Customer Service with Quad Monitors

The engineers at eMazzanti Technologies use multiple monitors, usually four per technician, to improve their performance and provide faster and more effective customer service.

The extra monitors put more information within their field of view, allowing them to work faster, resolving problems in less time. For example: they can access the customers desktop or server remotely while referencing a knowledgebase, the customers history and job ticket all at the same time.

Adding a second monitor meant an instant 20 to 30 percent increase in productivity, said Mazzanti. For every monitor we added after that, weve seen a three to five percent improvement. You may be able to get a 50 to 65 percent bump in productivity overall

Dual Monitor Research Agrees

At least five studies in the past ten years have concluded that multiple monitors and increased monitor size improve employee productivity, including:

Winscribe Reports Good Prognosis for Cloud Computing in Healthcare Markets


Auckland, NZ (PRWEB) June 23, 2014

The uptake of cloud computing in the healthcare industry is reaching new highs. According to marketsandmarkets.com there is an annual growth of 20%, a rate that has been steadily climbing since 2011. The global healthcare cloud computing market revenue is predicted to increase from $ 1.8 billion in 2011 to 5.4 billion by 2017. [1]

As would be expected, developed nations hold the major share of the uptake of cloud technology, with the United States as the leader in the field.

According to a recent survey, 83% of healthcare organizations are using cloud-based services, with 67% using Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions. The web-based 2014 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Survey also found that the most common use of cloud-based solutions were for administrative purposes (73.4%), IT functions (73.4%), clinical applications and data (52.4%) and external data sharing (48.4%). [2]

These results suggest that the healthcare industry is becoming increasingly confident in cloud-based solutions for their IT requirements. In fact, the HIMSS survey shows that the majority of healthcare organizations that are currently using cloud-based solutions are looking to expand their use in the future.

As with other sectors, cloud computing offers many benefits to the healthcare market.

Theres the flexibility and scalability that comes with cloud-based SaaS solutions. With no software or servers to buy, install or maintain or upgrade, SaaS solutions are popular with organizations asked to do more, with less.

Cloud-based solutions are economically feasible, lowering costs for payers and providers. Capital expenditure for software and servers is eliminated; reducing IT resource needs and accelerated deployments.

The centralized storage of data, including electronic medical records, also provides the efficient and convenient retrieval of information, improving workflow processes and timeliness.

SaaS solutions also manage the critical areas of physical, operational and system security, providing a safe and secure service to users.

The worldwide trend in the increasing utilization of cloud computing in the healthcare market is mirrored in the rapid development and growth of SaaS solutions.

Winscribe Cloud Services, formerly known as Winscribe OnDemand, a cloud-based SaaS Speech productivity workflow solution, has enjoyed a 56% increase in revenue growth over the last 12 months. This take up has increased across all sectors, including the medical, legal, professional and Government sectors, with thousands of users accessing the system every day.

As cloud-based solutions continue to be proven methods for data handling, Winscribe Cloud Services is no exception. Data entry is a process that is time and labor intensive. However, digital dictation is fast, easy and requires no learning time from physicians and other professionals. In addition to saving time, digital dictation has emerged a way to minimize errors by improving record-keeping and streamlining procedures. Since cloud technology aids data flow by eliminating the number of steps it takes to get data from one place to another, faster data entry through dictation and management in the cloud is proving to be a perfect match for businesses to improve productivity and reduce IT costs.

We launched Winscribes cloud solution six years ago and were first to market with our innovative solution, says Matthew Weavers CEO at Winscribe. Since that time it has proved very popular with small to medium enterprises wishing to gain access to the market leading Winscribe dictation and transcription platform. Today we are seeing interest from organizations, both large and small, who are looking for scalable and secure productivity solutions that reduce IT costs and offer a greater return on investment, so organizations can get back to the primary intent of their business patient and client care.

Application Outsourcing Industry Shaken by Hyper-rationalization, Unprecedented Pricing PressureEverest Group Reports


Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) June 03, 2014

Two significant trendshyper-rationalization and unprecedented pricing pressure on providersare rocking the world of Application Outsourcing (AO), according to Everest Group.

In its just-released report, Everest Group describes how enterprises are seeking to reduce application portfolios by as much as 60 percent through hyper-rationalization initiatives. For ages, enterprises have adopted application rationalization strategies; hyper-rationalization is the next stage of this journey. Hyper-rationalization not only encompasses the mass peripheral applications but also focuses on the core applications landscape.

Simultaneously, enterprises are demanding of providers complete pricing transparency and cost reductions, driving average pricing of AO engagements down for the third straight year. Buyers believe that service providers are unable to offer incremental value through application services and, therefore, demand price reduction. Cutthroat competition among providers assures that most providers agree to these price reduction demands.

These findings and more are discussed in Application Outsourcing Annual Report 2014: Rationalization Goes Hyper.

Latest GigaOM Research Reports Focus on Second Quarter Shake-ups, Future of Xbox One, and Intersection of Big Data and Human Risk

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 05, 2013

GigaOM Research has released its latest batch of quarterly wrap-ups, which summarize the biggest news, executive shake-ups, and mergers and acquisitions that occurred over the past three months in the cloud, cleantech, mobile, social and connected consumer markets. Other recent reports include an analysis of the Xbox One, and the future of big data analytics in the financial sector.

July 2013 Research includes:

Cloud and data second-quarter 2013: analysis and outlook (subscription required)

Analysts David Linthicum and Jo Maitand examine major news from the past three months in the cloud, infrastructure and big data sector. While the NSA leaks and the PRISM scandal dominated the quarters headlines and stirred up questions about cloud privacy and data privacy across international borders the quarter also included major acquisitions, such as the IBM-SoftLayer deal. Linthicum and Maitland highlight big executive changes, emerging trends and funding/IPO news for the cloud and data market, and they present a near-term outlook.

(See all the second quarter wrap-up reports here.)

The Xbox Ones role in the TV ecosystem (subscription required)

While the device met with mixed reviews, analyst Paul Sweeting argues that the Xbox One represents part of a greater strategy for Microsoft. Rather than releasing just another console, he believes the Xbox One is poised to capitalize on an inflection point in the video game industry, which has seen the rise of mobile and cloud-based gaming markets. Sweeting contends that Microsoft hopes to dominate the living room by providing a multipurpose entertainment device that serves up a range of non-gaming content, such as TV and video content and other media.

Proactive compliance: using big data analytics to manage human risks (subscription required)

Financial institutions are using increasingly affordable technologies like cloud computing and parallel processing to monitor and detect potentially suspicious activity. But analyst Steve Hunt contends that many of the systems in place are still insufficient for detecting more subtle cases of fraud and money laundering. Instead, he suggests that financial institutions take a proactive approach, using big data and predictive analytics tools to detect patterns in unstructured and semistructured data capitalizing on techniques commonly used by government intelligence agencies. Hunt analyzes the compliance challenges, current practices and common threats that are affecting the financial sector today and provides a list of recommendations for CIOs and CSOs.

Rollbase Reports 80 Percent Year over Year Subscription Growth in 2012

Saratoga, California (PRWEB) January 28, 2013

Rollbase, Inc., an innovator in cloud application platform as a service (PaaS) technology allowing the rapid design, development and deployment of on-demand business applications, today announced record recurring revenue growth in 2012. The year was highlighted by 80% year over year growth in subscription revenue from new customers and existing customer expansions. Over 10,000 users are now using hundreds of custom Rollbase applications in 10 languages globally.

In addition to operating Rollbase as a pure cloud service (Rollbase Hosted Cloud), the company’s focus on providing an easily installable, brandable, licensed option (Rollbase Private Cloud) has helped it capture demand from enterprises, governments, and other types of organizations that want to maintain full control over their data and infrastructure whether it resides in-house, in a third party data center, or in any cloud infrastructure of their choosing.

Rollbase Philippines, the premier provider of Rollbase development services with over 20 full time Rollbase developers on staff, continued to deliver results in 2012. Interest in Rollbase as a cloud application platform coupled with the need for professional Rollbase development and implementation services continues to rise and Rollbase Philippines has proven successful for a growing number of Rollbase customers.

“We are pleased to report 80% year over year growth in income from recurring subscription revenue. After investing five years in product development to meet the needs of our initial customer base, a diverse and global set of enterprises and ISVs operating in a range of industries, we are finally starting to see a payoff in subscription growth,” said Matt Robinson, co-founder and CEO of Rollbase. “We delivered over 200 new features and enhancements in 2012 and our client satisfaction and retention have been remarkable. Looking ahead to 2013, we foresee solid growth and new business opportunities for both Rollbase and our partners as our new user interface is rolled out and we begin to invest in building awareness.”

2012 Year in Review:

Reflecting more broadly on 2012, Rollbase achieved several product milestones. Rollbase stands out by delivering rapid innovation in the application platform as a service (APaaS) market, focused on providing a declarative web-based application development environment accessible to business users that minimizes the amount of code necessary to build cloud business applications. Rollbase performs frequent updates, including bi-weekly enhancements as well as major releases, so all new functionality automatically becomes available to every organization on the system. Throughout the year, Rollbase delivered more than 200 new features and enhancements, many in response to ideas submitted and prioritized by Rollbase’s clients and partners.

Product highlights in 2012 included:


New HTML5-based iPhone and Android friendly mobile user interface.
New authentication options for integration with Active Directory and LDAP servers.
Single-Sign On capability and API allowing development of custom authentication functionality.
Multi-factor authentication to ensure user identity via challenge questions.
New API allowing customizable password validation algorithms.
Custom CSS: Custom stylesheets can be uploaded to customize the look and feel of Rollbase applications.
10th language supported: Norwegian was added to English, German, French, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
Application Update Process Improvements: Users performing an application upgrade now have fine-grained control over what application components get added, updated or deleted with the published version.
Partially locked applications: Ability to specify whether an application is “Unlocked”, “Partially Locked” or “Fully Locked”. Partially locked applications allow locking of specific Objects, Menus and Portals but leave others unlocked for customers to modify.
Tenant-specific control over the “Push Updates” process: Centrally managed application updates can be pushed to specific sets of tenants rather than all tenants that have previous versions of that app.
Application Version History and Rollback: Every time an application is published a copy of the previous application definition is stored which can be exported or used for rollback purposes.
New APIs to programmatically install and update applications.
The Rollbase Custom Development Toolkit: Documentation and examples of creating custom Java-based triggers, custom authentication modules and custom JSPs.
Automated Code Generator for Integrations: Template-based code generator allowing automatic tenant-specific code generation for programmatically working with Rollbase APIs in any language.
PDF Forms as Document Templates: A mapping can be defined between fields in a PDF form and any of a Rollbase Object’s fields allowing automation PDF form generation.
Support for Azure Blob Storage.
New Field Type: Expression fields are an alternative to Formula fields for which the computed result is stored and therefore can be used for sorting, totaling and filtering in Views and Reports.
New Field Type: Reference fields are similar to Lookup fields but allow selection of one or more records from a number of different object definitions.
External Objects: Rollbase Private Cloud can integrate directly with external database tables and treat them as Object definitions.

In 2012, Rollbase also furthered its strategy of partnering with development and hosting partners to offer Rollbase development services and managed cloud hosting services to its customers. More than 20 organizations became partners to offer Rollbase application development and managed hosting services to new and existing Rollbase customers.
