We appreciate their dedication to educating our students as well as offering incentives to bring photobiomodulation into daily practice,” shares Kara Amstutz, DVM, DACVSMR, CEO of Canine Rehabilitation Institute. Based in Rochester, New York, Cutting Edge offers veterinary professionals throughout the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico with a full family of Surgical and MLS Therapy Laser devices.

Their expertise and dedication to continuing education paired with our world-class technologies has brought tremendous value to the veterinary community and the future of canine rehabilitation,” shared Mark Mollenkopf, President of Cutting Edge Laser Technologies. “It’s a testament to our shared vision.” As a premier institution for canine rehabilitation, CRI offers a challenging and collaborative learning environment where students gain hands-on experience learning state-of-the-art techniques and strategies to integrate them successfully into their practices. Over the past two decades, laser therapy has seen considerable growth in human and animal medicine providing a conservative approach to pain and inflammation. The MLS Therapy Laser, offered exclusively by Cutting Edge, is an advanced Class IV laser technology that uses a patented emission system to synchronize two specific wavelengths of photon energy known for their antiphlogistic, antiedemic, analgesic and regenerative/reparative effects. This therapy offers a solution to patients unable to tolerate conventional analgesic pharmacotherapy as well as those who did not see desired effects with medication alone. MLS Laser Therapy can also be used in conjunction with pharmaceutical analgesics as well as other therapeutic modalities common in veterinary medicine, such as electrotherapy and magnetotherapy, to further improve outcomes. Through this long-term partnership, Cutting Edge and CRI hope to leverage their unique strengths and competencies to provide comprehensive high-quality continuing education opportunities that elevate the field of canine rehabilitation. About Cutting Edge Laser Technologies is focused on providing non-pharmacological and non-invasive solutions for pain management, wound healing, post-surgical recovery, and tissue regeneration.

Kantar unveils ad avoidance causes and correlation between viewer experience and purchase

NEW YORK, NY, USA, August 8: Mirriad, the leading in-content advertising company and 2022 AdExchanger Winner for Most Innovative TV Advertising Technology Award, today announced results of a groundbreaking study in partnership with Kantar which finds a direct correlation of the likeability of advertising and its ability to drive positive performance. In the newly released whitepaper ‘Hack to the Future: Understanding viewers’ attitudes and preferences to overcome ad avoidance’, Kantar found that a substantial 86% of all viewers are taking actions to avoid TV and video advertising across broadcast and network TV, streaming, and online video. In contrast, viewers feel much more positive about in-content advertising from Mirriad and take no steps to avoid this integrated ad format. The research proves that a viewer’s negative perception of an ad format leads to lower ad effectiveness and purchase activity. Viewers are so over-saturated by TV and video ads that they dislike and avoid the format and, when they actually see the ads, purchase the advertised products and services at a lower rate compared to when they’re exposed to highly favorable formats like in-content advertising from Mirriad. “Viewers feel positive about Mirriad’s ad formats and that directly drives an incredible increase in purchase, among other key performance metrics. At a time when traditional advertisements are skipped, blocked, and creating fatigue, our study proves that in-content advertising as spearheaded by Mirriad is a smart choice for advertisers,” said Sparsh Pandya, Client Director at Kantar. Favourable viewer experience drives better results: Mirriad’s strong performance in driving better results can be attributed to a favourable viewer perception especially due to the natural feel of the format (83%) and its non-intrusive nature (79%). The study found that on average, viewers who feel positive about their ad experience are much more likely to purchase an advertiser’s product, resulting in a 61% higher incidence of adding products to the shopping cart, and 40% higher online purchase and 27 % higher in-store purchase. Stephan Beringer, CEO at Mirriad, said: “Advertisers looking for ways to improve their performance on TV, CTV and video now have even more proof that in-content advertising is an indispensable new solution. Given the growing ad fatigue and the dramatic issue of ad escapism, in-content advertising is a format that is pivotal for brand equity and sales. In contrast to the traditional ad-break that today has a compounding negative effect, Mirriad operates with an experience-first solution in the content itself, maximizing a brand’s opportunity to leverage positive viewer perceptions to drive better results.” About Mirriad The leader in virtual product placement and in-content advertising, Mirriad’s multi-patented and award-winning platform dynamically inserts products and brands into Television, SVOD/AVOD, Music, and Influencer content. Mirriad creates net-new revenue opportunities for content owners with an ad format that virtually integrates brands in entertainment content, drives exceptional performance for advertisers and dramatically improves the viewing experience.

QVANTUM Expands into the US Market, Empowering Precise Workforce Planning with Customized Cost Solutions

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, August 21: QVANTUM, an innovator in agile corporate planning solutions, today announced that it is expanding further into global markets by introducing its service portfolio of customized workforce cost planning options to organizations across the United States. Collaborating with workforce planning and controlling specialist, Christian Fritz, QVANTUM has developed a practical use case that empowers businesses to engage in precise workforce planning. This expansion into the US market will accelerate QVANTUM’s growth as an industry innovator. An integral facet gaining prominence within agile corporate management is the strategic handling of personnel expenses. Through software-aided personnel cost planning, organizations can forecast existing and anticipated staffing levels and needs and simulate diverse scenarios. These simulations enable companies to adjust their workforce allocation in response to varying circumstances adeptly. Addressing the complexity of managing personnel expenses, Amit Mundra, QVANTUM's Head of Global Business Development, said: "The big challenge in planning and controlling personnel costs is the different perspectives on the topic. HR managers focus primarily on the professional and human aspects, and the costs tend to run alongside. From a controlling perspective, costs, in turn, play a central role. With the new personnel cost planning in QVANTUM, we close this gap. Both sides benefit because neither classic HR tools nor traditional controlling solutions have had such far-reaching HR cost data and analysis options. Our launch into the US market culminates several years of planning. We are excited to provide powerful, cost-effective, easy-to-use software to organizations in this region.” Furthermore, the utilization of planned versus actual data brings tangible advantages. Consider the current situation where many businesses struggle with accurate workforce planning due to pandemic repercussions and skills shortages. Through QVANTUM's workforce planning, these companies can effortlessly track their personnel costs in real-time, proactively identifying potential shortages or surpluses to facilitate timely interventions. QVANTUM's operational personnel cost planning empowers HR managers and controllers to efficiently manage FTE (Full-Time Equivalent) and personnel expenses, incorporating insights from all organizational domains. Workforce planning expert Christian Fritz underscored the importance, "Personnel costs often constitute a substantial portion of total expenses in companies, exerting significant influence over overall profitability. QVANTUM's workforce planning provides a comprehensive view of all personnel cost components, including salaries, bonuses, social security contributions, and more, spanning existing staff and vacancies. The capability to directly plan personnel measures within QVANTUM facilitates precise control over personnel resources and the associated costs, optimizing overall corporate management." Agile workforce planning proves invaluable even in scenarios such as mergers, where the consolidation of HR applications is necessary. Interfaces enable seamless data transfer from platforms like DATEV or SAP to QVANTUM, streamlining detailed analysis. Amit Mundra explained, "Companies often resort to workarounds, such as Excel, for such use cases. However, these approaches frequently clash with compliance mandates or falter due to operational errors and complexity. QVANTUM offers automated data integration and calculations supported by robust authorization logic to uphold compliance standards. Moreover, our planning data, which incorporates historical company data, remains in real-time." When a company adopts QVANTUM's workforce planning, they receive customized personnel cost planning to align with the organization's specific needs, collaborating with responsible stakeholders. The outcome is a tailored planning model enabling centralized and/or decentralized calculation and planning of all personnel expenses, encompassing basic salaries, bonuses, capital-forming benefits, and more. This integration embeds workforce planning seamlessly into the holistic corporate planning process, ensuring a cohesive approach. Automation empowers the correlation of planning outcomes across different departments, illuminating interdependencies. Importantly, personal information confidentiality is upheld within cross-organizational planning data.

Multitaskers on the move prefer to make use of voice than their hands while moving

July 29: A study has revealed that users of smartphone prefer to purchase a device that provides them with the facility to push a solitary button, utter what they feel like and obtain it, making them well-organized on the move. The survey carried out by Sanderson Studios for Tellme Networks Inc., a Microsoft unit, reveals that 75 percent of people would favour a smartphone that permits them to write a text message, surf Web or dial a call just by talking, instead of typing or utilizing a touch screen. The survey as well showed that cell phone propriety appears to be surfacing, with the greater part of respondents stating that they would feel at ease utilizing voice to complete jobs in locations for example restaurants and gyms.

The majority of people utilize smartphones while performing other jobs with the objective of utilizing their time more effectively. Those who took part in the study said that they utilized their smartphones at the time of shopping or performing odd jobs (88 percent), sitting at locations of appointments (80 percent), treading between locations (78 percent), meeting acquaintances (68 percent) and in numerous other locations, for example while having food at eateries, travelling, exercising or going to school. While typing as well as touching are not considered as troublesome, those surveyed concede that utilizing their smartphones in these locations can be disturbing. If provided with the alternative to just touch a button and talk to converse or text an acquaintance or look for information, for example the site of a restaurant, guidelines or stock quotes, the majority noted that they could achieve more and feel less abstracted.

"If you've ever tried typing or touching on your smartphone while walking down the street or paying at the checkout line, you know how distracting it can be," observed Anne Truscott, brand strategist at Sanderson Studios adding, "But using your voice while walking or checking out is like walking and chewing gum at the same time; it just comes naturally. And we were surprised how many people said they'd feel comfortable using their voices to interact with their smartphones while in public places as well."
