— ITsavvy President and CEO Mike Theriault

ADDISON, ILL., U.S., April 1, 2019 / — ITsavvy, one of the fastest growing complete technology solution providers in the U.S., just introduced a full-service on site technology solution for a complete range of industries that include banking, hospitality, retail and more.

ITsavvy President and CEO Mike Theriault said, “Because we are closely attuned to our clients’ needs, it became clear to us that the ability to obtain reliable, highly competent technology services on site quickly on an as-needed basis is something our clients are more than ready to embrace.”

ITsavvy’s Field Solutions options and capabilities range from complete install, move, add and change (IMAC) services to system refreshes to same-day break/fix to packaged, lifecycle service programs. ITsavvy Field Solutions encompasses all services across all technology lifecycles. Clients can offload specific service needs, specific projects, or their entire field service operation-with flexible pricing structures and delivery options customized for each client.

Daniel Larson, ITsavvy’s Director of Sales, Field Solutions, said, “Many situations require a support technician on premises and no one wants to wait hours or even days for the technician to arrive.”

He added, “Most of our clients are getting away from a full-time support workforce and the full-time salaries that go with it. With more than 7,000 skilled technicians across the U.S. and Canada, the technology services we offer are nearly the same as having engineers on staff.”

ITsavvy’s Field Solutions advantages include:

• 100% Contingent Direct-To-Technician Workforce: Clients work directly with technicians at all times-with ITsavvy managing in the background.
• Technician Dedication: ITsavvy’s recruitment and compensation strategies ensure their technicians develop strong loyalty and commitment to clients and their projects.
• Technology-Enabled, Data-Driven Service Delivery: ITsavvy’s project management technologies ensure that vetted and pre-qualified technicians integrate quickly and seamlessly into the client’s team.
• Full Coverage in the U.S. and Canada: There are no gaps for service anywhere in the continental U. S. and Canada. In addition, more than 100,000 expert Global Services Partners worldwide position ITsavvy to fully handle multinational field service assignments of any scale.
• Exceptional SLA Performance: ITsavvy Field Solutions provides four levels of response and backs each one with an exacting SLA.

“These technicians contract directly with ITsavvy—meaning there are no middle layers,” Larson explained. “Traditional field services will outsource to third party companies that specialize. Those will, in turn, outsource to smaller regional companies—they outsource to someone else that outsources and so on. This creates an astronomical margin that is passed along to the client. We remove all of the middle layers. In addition to the obvious benefit, this leads to better communication, more transparency and a higher level of technical support.”

ITsavvy is a leader in tailored, end-to-end IT product and service solutions. ITsavvy built its reputation as a value-added reseller with industry-leading product availability, design and implementation, client support and delivery speed through 46 distribution centers across the U.S. ITsavvy also has data center locations in Cedar Knolls, N.J. and Oak Brook, Ill.

$12M in Grants Awarded to Increase Accessibility for Campers & Staff with Disabilities

Yashar Grant Initiative

Foundation for Jewish Camp Yashar Initiative

Foundation for Jewish Camp and The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation Partner in a Groundbreaking Accessibility and Inclusion Initiative at Jewish Camps.

The Yashar Initiative not only enables the grant recipients to make wonderful improvements to their camps, but will inspire more camps to consider and implement greater inclusion.

— Jeremy Fingerman, CEO, Foundation for Jewish Camp

NEW YORK, NY, US, April 1, 2019 / — 16 Jewish Camps Awarded Grants as Part of $12M Yashar Initiative to Increase Accessibility for Campers and Staff with Disabilities
Partnership of Foundation for Jewish Camp and The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation provides critical funding for structural improvements and training to promote participation for all

New York, N.Y. – This April, 16 Jewish camps across North America will be the first recipients of a groundbreaking grant to increase accessibility for campers and staff with disabilities through the Yashar Initiative. The Hebrew word “Yashar” translates to both “level” and “integrity,” and like its namesake, the Yashar Initiative is intended to improve accessibility for campers and staff with disabilities on multiple levels by providing funds for capital improvements, professional development, staff training, research, and evaluation. The $12 million Yashar Initiative, a program of Foundation for Jewish Camp (FJC) generously funded by The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, will enable Jewish day and overnight camps to better welcome all members of the Jewish community.

The 16 day and overnight camps awarded this FIRST round of Yashar grants represent a diverse range of affiliations:

Beber Camp, Wisconsin
B’nai Brith Camp, Oregon
Camp Keff, California
Camp Ramah, California
Camp Ramah Poconos. Pennsylvania
Camp Simcha, New York
Camp Solomon Schechter, Washington
Camp Tawonga, California
JCC Camp Chi, Wisconsin
JCC Camp Ruach, New Jersey
JCC Camp Yachad, New Jersey
JCC Camp Z Frank Apachi, Illinois
Mid Island Y JCC Camp, New York
Ramah Darom, Georgia
Ramah Day Camp, New York
URJ Camp Harlam, Pennsylvania

"We are thrilled to champion the ambitious plans of our first round of grantees, which meaningfully reflect FJC’s values and aspirations for the field,” says Jeremy Fingerman, CEO of FJC. “Every moment of this process has been filled with the kind of excitement that can only be found on the brink of creating real, substantive change.”

A past FJC-administered survey identified the need for greater accessibility for staff and campers with disabilities as a major barrier to participation in Jewish camps. The Yashar Initiative was designed to address the needs of individuals with autism spectrum disorder, as well as people with intellectual, developmental, physical, and sensory disabilities.

“Since its founding, the Weinberg Foundation has provided nearly 80 grants, totaling approximately $6 million, to both Jewish and non-Jewish camps to improve accessibility for campers and staff with disabilities,” said Paula B. Pretlow, Trustee, The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation. “This initiative is especially critical because it benefits not only the camps that receive direct funding, but also advances the field with best practice information regarding inclusion models and training for staff. Most important, however,” Pretlow added, “Yashar ensures that all campers are able to access this foundational aspect of a Jewish upbringing.”

Each of the grantees included in this first round of giving was required to independently raise 25 percent of the project’s cost before applying. Each camp will receive money for both capital improvements, as well as a program grant totaling $2.5 million for the first round of the initiative. The camps anticipate finishing their improvements by the summer of 2020.

Examples of approved projects include:

Building or renovating bunks to be more accessible for campers and staff;
Developing sensory gardens, splash pools, and playgrounds to enhance services of campers with disabilities;
Improving accessibility for campers with disabilities as part of construction or renovation of communal buildings, such as dining halls and infirmaries;
Creating new housing to serve vocational training programs that allow campers with disabilities to grow into staff roles at camp.

In keeping with the goals of the initiative to promote a greater culture of inclusion, each grant recipient has committed to increasing their total campers with disabilities to at least five percent of the total camper population.

Fingerman added, "We’re buoyed by the knowledge that the best is yet to come, as The Yashar Initiative will not only enable these grant recipients to make wonderful improvements to their camps, but will inspire more camps to consider and implement greater inclusion.”

The Yashar Initiative will accept grant applications again this fall, as well as in the fall of 2020.

Auto/Mate's Ken Rock to Present "How to SPOT & STOP Policy and Shop Supply Abuse" At Digital Dealer 26

AutoMate Logo 2018

If you're a dealer who's looking for a quick and easy way to reduce operating expenses, start with policy and shop supply. You're probably giving away more than you think”

— Ken Rock, Customer Care Manager, Auto/Mate

ALBANY, NY, UNITED STATES, April 1, 2019 / — Auto/Mate Dealership Systems' Customer Care Manager Ken Rock will present "How to SPOT & STOP Policy and Shop Supply Abuse" at the upcoming Digital Dealer 26 Convention & Expo in Orlando, FL. Rock's session is scheduled for Thursday, April 11 at 11:10 am EST.

“Policy and shop supply expenses are easy to overlook because they're grouped in with General Ledger (GL) expenses, so it's difficult for dealers to see how much abuse is going on,” said Rock. "By abuse I don't mean employees intentionally charging things they shouldn't, but the kind of abuse that happens due to human error or when nobody is paying attention."

Without a method to identify and track these expenses, dealerships can easily lose thousands of dollars per month. One dealer discovered that all of the dealership's service marketing expenses were being charged to policy, while another dealer realized his policy expenses exceeded $35,000 per month.

"These are not fixed expenses so they're easily controlled," said Rock. "If you're a dealer who's looking for a quick and easy way to reduce operating expenses, start with policy and shop supply. You're probably giving away more than you think."

In this workshop, fixed ops expert Ken Rock reveals the most common policy and shop supply abuses, how to spot them and how to stop them.

Session attendees will learn how to:

• Set up a DMS report to identify all expenses charged to policy and shop supply
• Trace document numbers back to ROs and other invoices, including who ordered the product or service
• Implement three simple processes to minimize abuse

Ken Rock is a Customer Care Manager at Auto/Mate, where he has been training dealership customers for over 10 years. Previously he was a Fixed Ops Director at a multi-store dealership group in New York and Massachusetts. Rock has more than 25 years of dealership experience and hands-on training of dealership staff.

The bumpy road of cannabis and how actively navigating it makes all the difference

Industry and consumer education will take the CBD industry to the multi billion dollar level”

— Fotis Georgiadis

GREENWICH, CT, USA, April 1, 2019 / — Fotis Georgiadis, owner of the blog by his namesake, is a branding and image consultant specialist with a robust background and is a visionary interviewer. With a knack for pulling out a well rounded interview, not only covering cutting edge technologies and corporate directions, but also bringing out the personal side of the interviewee.

The cannabis industry has gone from an obscure, 'back room only', marketplace to a robust and thriving industry. There are still a lot of misconceptions and misunderstandings about cannabis, marijuana and hemp. The passage of the 2018 Farm Bill has helped clarify some things, easing restrictions on hemp, the non-THC cannabis plant, in contrast to marijuana, which is the THC containing plant. THC is the component that gives the 'high' while CBD, found in both strains, has the health benefits.

Fotis Georgiadis interviewed Trish Lucy, Brand Ambassador and Director of Trade Relations for ONE13tm Topical Relief. One of the biggest issues was, and still is, educating people about CBD/Hemp and how it is different than marijuana. She went on to discuss how not only to customers not understand the difference, but the market itself doesn't even know.

“Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?

The funniest mistake we made was assuming the market knew anything about itself. The first comprehensive market report on hemp-derived products (created by New Frontier Data) was not even released until the end of last year. The maturity of this market still has many, many years before it gets its legs under it.” – Fotis Georgiadis and Trish May interview.

Not only are customers misinformed, this issue extends to each state and their legislators. The same learning curve is needed there as well. Even with the passage of the Farm Bill, states are way behind the times for the most part, needing a lot of information to clear up the misconceptions. Trish Lucy further explains this later on in the interview, seen here:

“Can you share your “5 Things I Wish Someone Told Me Before I Started Leading a Cannabis Business”? Please share a story or example for each.

1. Misinformation/ misconceptions about Hemp: it is a longer sale cycle due to the educational component, teaching on the healing benefits of hemp derived CBD.

We did a yoga festival (Love Light) in Maryland the end of 2018. We noticed that some people were hesitant at first to try, expressing initial reluctance based on what they perceived we were selling. Our approach was for them to just try it on, walk around, enjoy the festival and we guaranteed that they would be back. Every single person came back and purchased.

2. Weeding through each State’s regulations, every State is different on how they are handling hemp derived CBD’s.

Some States are lumping any CBD product under one umbrella, which is a bit limiting for now. In due time the atmosphere behind hemp derived CBD’s will open. For now, we do as much due diligence as possible to abide by each States’ current regulations

3. CBD Market, how saturated the market is with “CBD” products, with this saturation there are very few that are top quality such as ONE13.

Tenpoint5 Barre Studio in central Phoenix sells ONE13, we had a booth at their Grand re-opening. Several ladies approached us, telling us they had purchased different topicals, months to a year ago that they were trying to use up before they invested in another. They each applied ONE13 before class as soon as class was over each purchased ONE13 stating they just couldn’t wait that long.

We knew going into this market their would-be challenges, as the adage goes “slow and steady wins the race!” Of course, when you believe in a product so much you think it is just going to fly off the shelves… As we have put a ton of man hours, thought, marketing and education into ONE13. Every day, week and month is a new and exciting adventure for us. We are thrilled about our future in this industry!

4. That traditional marketing does not apply within this space.

We have been essentially “boxed” under the “CBD” umbrella, which has limited us to boosting posts, buying ad words, etc.

5. We have to really think outside of the box, in order to get the word out on ONE13” – 5 things series interview.

There is a void of factual information on cannabis. This void is slowly being filled in by legitimate companies trying to bring the public up to speed on the differences between the 2 plants and the benefits of CBD when it comes to health and wellness of people and animals.

Enter Eugenio Garcia, CEO and founder of Cannabis Now. He is bringing the latest information directly to the consumer through print, digital, broadcast and social media. Fotis Georgiadis' interview touches upon this and how even being an information source for the industry has been challenging.

“Can you share 3 things that most excite you about the Cannabis industry? Can you share 3 things that most concern you?


1) The healing power this plant has to offer

2) The amount of $$ the space will create

3) Watching the acceptance of cannabis and CBD by mainstream brands” – Read the concerns in the rest of the Eugenio Garcia interview.

Industry and consumer education will take the CBD industry to the multi billion dollar level. (Statista data)
