ITFirms Instances Biggest Slice of Top e-Commerce Development Companies’19

IT Firms - A Leading Research Provider

Business Growth

ITFirms goes for balance in its hunt for top e-commerce development companies'19!

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to Michael Leboeuf, a satisfied customer is the best business strategy of all. Success is not tied to innovation for innovation’s sake. It is instead focused on an un-ignorable center of commerce i.e. the customer’s choice.

Every passing trend needs to be analyzed and adopted in due course as it is going to drive the e-commerce brand forward. This imparts competitive advantage to the companies and allows them to stay ahead in the competition. Marketers have identified and anticipated following E-commerce trends in 2019:

• Marketers have to apply more digitally native tactics; having known that people buy with their hearts and justify with their heads but the choice means that brands can scale by profitably serving smaller niches than legacy competitors, thus expanding from a mission-centric foundation.
• Chatbots will be driven by machine learning and AI and will become an essential part of E-commerce toolkit.
• Predictive analytics and data driven enterprises will continue to evolve
• Brands will unite to create larger marketplaces by bringing visibility and credibility and ensuring trust
• Evolution of social commerce with a certain disconnect, more online active accounts, users time spend in browsing, ad spend and penetration of www; suggests that despite the rollout of numerous “native” purchasing features, users are not actually buying, they want an experience.
• Influencer marketing will keep driving sales
• TrueView Shopping will be on the rising
• Companies with trying out to be more creative with Shoppable Instagram Stories
• Companies will experiment with Snapchat collection advertisements
• Online businesses have snatched their rights to flirt with offline retail
• Consumers will look to drive retail innovation and work via shared economy

Notwithstanding the fact that content is going to become Holy Grail (prolonged endeavor) of growth, the opposite extremes lay headlines exclaiming “VR-enabled O2O experiences”, “voice-search buying,” and “Instagram-worthy pop-ups.” ITFirms lists top e-commerce development companies that have delivered on their promises:

1. Konstant Infosolutions
2. Elsner Technologies
3. Brainvire Infotech Inc.
4. Magneto IT Solutions
5. Commerce Pundit
6. Chetu
7. Dotcomweavers
8. PerceptionBox
9. Atlas SoftWeb
10. Planet Web Solutions

Civica Rx Opens New Headquarters

Civica Rx Headquarter Opening

Ribbon cutting at new Civica Rx headquarters in Lehi, Utah

Civica team, hospital leaders, and elected officials dedicate new offices to mission of ensuring essential generic medications are available and affordable

LEHI, UTAH, USA, April 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Civica Rx, a new not-for-profit company that was established to help stabilize the supply of essential generic medications, has opened its new headquarters, located at 2912 Executive Parkway in Lehi, UT.

Joining the Civica Rx team in a grand opening ceremony and ribbon cutting were Utah Governor, Gary Herbert; U.S. Congressman Ben McAdams (UT); Intermountain Healthcare CEO, Dr. Marc Harrison; University of Utah Senior Director Drug Information Services, Erin Fox; and Civica Rx Chairman of the Board and the “brainchild” of Civica Rx, Dan Liljenquist, who is also SVP of Strategy at Intermountain Healthcare. U.S. Senators Mitt Romney and Mike Lee of Utah provided congratulatory video remarks.

Lehi, referred to locally as “Silicon Slopes,” was chosen because it is centrally located amid Utah’s major universities and has become a hub for Utah’s start-up and tech community, which will enable Civica Rx to draw on local expertise and talent. The Lehi office will house approximately 40 people soon and expansion opportunities in Lehi are expected to bring the office to four or five times that size within three to five years.

Civica Rx exists in the public interest as a non-profit, non-stock corporation focused on reducing chronic generic drug shortages, which have negatively impacted patient care for over a decade. It was founded by leading US hospital systems concerned about drug shortages and philanthropic organizations passionate about improving healthcare.

“Together we celebrate the reason why Civica Rx exists, in purpose and in brick and mortar, and that is to do what is in the best interest of patients by stabilizing the supply of generic medications,” said Martin VanTrieste, Civica Rx CEO. “Drug shortages strain hospital staff, lead to delayed surgeries and sub-optimal treatments for patients, and can lead to unpredictable price increases that result in budgetary instability in hospitals.”

Event speakers highlighted the challenges associated with generic drug shortages in the nation’s hospitals, shared enthusiasm about the promise of Civica Rx as an innovative, collaborative approach to stabilizing generic drug supply, and expressed pride in welcoming Civica Rx to Utah.

Secure Channels Launches Desktop Encryption Utility ZIPcrypt™ Featuring XOTIC

SCI Logo

Secure Channels Launches Desktop Encryption Utility ZIPcrypt™ featuring XOTIC™ extreme encryption technology and all-new “dialable” cipher-strength

UNITED STATES, April 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — IRVINE, CALIF. (April 17, 2019) – Secure Channels Inc., a provider of innovative security solutions, announced today the launch of ZIPcrypt™, an easy-to-use desktop utility that encrypts and decrypts files or folders with a simple right-click.

The ZIPcrypt™ application (utility) is designed for simplicity and to be immediately familiar to those who already use WinZip, WinRAR, or other shell-integrated compression utilities. ZIPcrypt™ presents the option to perform encryption using the widely popular AES-256 standard, as well as the more powerful, ground-breaking new encryption technology known as XOTIC™.

The XOTIC™ encryption format allows for unprecedented direct control over encryption strength using a simple “dial” feature that resembles a stereo volume control knob. XOTIC™ encryption strength ranges from 512 bits of security (known as “post-quantum” strength), all the way up to an eye-popping 131,072 bit, which can only be described as “archive strength”.

ZIPcrypt™ follows the popular “Freemium” model, making it always free to use for basic file and folder ZIP compression with encryption. Users can also opt-in to engage a free-trial of SCIFCOM™. Enabling SCIFCOM™ fully unlocks the potential of ZIPcrypt™, allowing for maximum encryption dial-settings and direct inline integration of the SCIFCOM™ online file-sharing service. The file-sharing feature includes the ability to directly send jumbo sized (extra-large) files securely over the internet via SCIFCOM.

SCIFCOM™ file-sharing utilizes the powerful SCIFCOM™ (as-a-service) website and robust cloud storage options to transmit files anywhere on earth. Recipients of encrypted files receive a link via email whereby encrypted data can be downloaded from the cloud, and encryption keys are handled separately and securely by SCIFCOM.

The minimal and elegant design of ZIPcrypt™ along with robust features for sharing files remotely presents an attractive and powerful alternative to DropBox.com. ZIPcrypt™ combines the ability to securely encrypt, store, and send data with ease.

(For a full list of SCIFCOM features, please visit http://beta.scifcom.com)

"Encryption is difficult and expensive, so it's not utilized by very many organizations," said Richard Blech, Chief Executive Officer of Secure Channels Inc. "With ZIPcrypt™ we built a minimalistic yet powerful utility that's exceedingly simple to use and provides users with important capabilities for their own security. These include local file and folder encryption (with ZIP compression) and send-a-file using the online SCIFCOM encryption as-a-service platform. We're excited to offer our first encryption-as-a-service platform and expect rapid adoption due to our combined ease of use and the benefits of encrypted protection. "

ZIPcrypt™ solves one of the most troublesome problems in the world today; the ability to send files safely while still remaining extremely simple to use. "We wanted to create something weightless that won't impact the user experience," said Michael Feinberg, Chief Information Officer of Secure Channels Inc.

About Secure Channels Inc.
Secure Channels Inc. offers innovative, agile security solutions designed to seamlessly integrate with organizations' existing solutions. Agnostic by nature, solutions customize to user environments without compromising protection.

POISONOUS SUGAR IN 56 DECEITFUL NAMES – WHERE IS THE FDA? – JURAVIN RESEARCH

Sugar is poison according to Don Karl Juravin

Sugar is poison according to Don Karl Juravin

Don Karl Juravin - HOLY LAND MAN

Don Karl Juravin – HOLY LAND MAN

We love #sugar. We are genetically wired to love sugar. Food manufacturers make us addictive to sugar using 56 names, all SUGAR in disguise, states Don Juravin

I call on the FDA not to allow the food manufacturers to deceive us. Any ingredient containing mainly sugar should be considered as sugar. As of now, the FDA is responsible for our sugar addiction.”

— Don Karl Juravin

ORLANDO, FL, UNITED STATES, April 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — We love sugar. We are genetically wired to love sugar. Sugar activates a rewarding spot in our brain. The brain uses 25% of our daily energy, more than any other organ and glucose is its source of fuel.

I’m Don Juravin and I LOVE HELPING people getting better HEALTH, love, happiness, and success.

I concluded that the FDA is not PROTECTING our health enough from deception.

The FDA is not explaining the danger of sugar clearly enough. Let’s exposed the food manufacturers tricks since 50% of our daily sugar consumption is from ingredients that are not clearly marked as sugar.

WHY THERE ARE 56 NAMES FOR SUGAR?

I found out that Food manufacturers are getting us addicted to sugar by using different sugar names to confuse us on the food label. 75% of all foods hide sugar under deceitful names. Why?

TO TRICK US WHEN WE READ THE FOOD LABEL:
The ingredients on a food label must be listed according to their weight. The food manufacturer wants to avoid listing a sugary ingredient at the top 3 of 5. Therefore they will break it into many sugary ingredients to still maintain the high sugar content and list them at the end.

Instead of adding pure sugar, Food manufacturers add few of the 56 sugar like ingredients.  That achieves their deceiving goal: not having to list "added sugar" in the "carbohydrates" section. The result: we're tricked into believing that the rest of the ingredients are natural.

Captozyme to Present Oxalate-Reducing Enzyme Clinical Study Results at American Urological Association Annual Meeting

Nephure Oxalate Reducing Enzyme

Results from Captozyme, Inc.’s post-market study of an innovative enzyme to support kidney health have been accepted for poster presentation on May 4 at the American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting in Chicago.

Nephure TM enzyme was evaluated vs. placebo in reduction of urinary oxalate associated with food oxalate, and will release results of the study May 4.

We are delighted to be presenting our clinical results, which further confirm the efficacy and potency of our oxalate-reducing enzyme to reduce urinary oxalate originating from food.”

— Helena Cowley, CEO, Captozyme

GAINESVILLE, FL, UNITED STATES, April 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Gainesville, Fla. (April 18, 2019) – Results from Captozyme, Inc.’s post-market study of an innovative enzyme to support kidney health have been accepted for poster presentation on May 4 at the American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting in Chicago.

Emily Quintero, a medical student at the University of Florida, will present the moderated poster presentation.

Title: A Prospective, Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Cross-Over Study Utilizing Orally Administered Oxalate decarboxylase (OxDC) to Reduce Urinary Oxalate
Poster Number: PD38-01
Location MCP: W181c
Date/Time: Saturday, May 4, 3:30 p.m. to 3:40 p.m.
Presenter: Emily Quintero

These findings can provide new options for individuals with Idiopathic Hyperoxaluria, a disorder characterized by increased urinary oxalate levels, which is often associated with excessive intake of dietary oxalate, decreased dietary calcium, or increased endogenous production1.

AUA guidelines recommend that clinicians counsel patients with calcium oxalate stones and relatively high urinary oxalate to limit oxalate-rich foods2 – a tall order for many patients due to variable levels of oxalate in a wide variety of nutritious plant-based foods3. Now, this innovative new enzyme could provide a first-of-its-kind solution for improved patient compliance for those following dietary guidelines for kidney stone management.

Captozyme’s poster presentation will include new positive results from a prospective, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study, cross-over study in healthy volunteers.

“We are delighted to be presenting our clinical results, which further confirm the efficacy and potency of our oxalate-reducing enzyme to reduce urinary oxalate originating from food,” Helena Cowley, chief executive officer of Captozyme, said. “We look forward generating high-quality development data for NephureTM and other enzymes in our company pipeline.”

About NephureTM
The active ingredient in Nephure™ is an oxalate decarboxylase enzyme affirmed to be "Generally Recognized As Safe" (GRAS) by an independent panel of experts following U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) scientific procedures safety criteria. Nephure ™ is a first-to-market enzyme product offering flexibility to people with oxalate-related nutritional limitations. Nephure is marketed by Entring, LLC, a subsidiary of Captozyme, Inc.

Nutrigenomix launches new genetic test for plant-based personalized nutrition suitable for vegetarians and vegans

Vegan cover

Nutrigenomix kit

The company is the first in the world to provide a genetic test developed specifically for those following plant-based diets

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, April 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nutrigenomix Inc., a global leader in genetic testing for personalized nutrition, announces the launch of an exclusive new line of genetic tests catering to those seeking plant-based personalized nutrition – designed to suit the dietary needs of both vegetarians and vegans. The new test adds to the broad selection of genetic tests offered by Nutrigenomix and provides actionable genetic information to help healthcare professionals and their clients determine the best dietary approach for optimal health, wellness and performance for those following a plant-based lifestyle.

A growing body of evidence has linked plant-based diets to positive health outcomes and the trend is on the rise around the globe. Insufficient intake of certain nutrients has long been a concern when following a plant-based diet, but with this new test, healthcare professionals can provide personalized recommendations to help clients consume a diet that meets their individual nutritional needs. Similar to other tests that Nutrigenomix offers, this new test includes genetic markers that have been shown to affect nutrient metabolism, gluten intolerance, weight management, eating behaviors, cardiometabolic health and fitness, with the additional layer of advice tailored specifically to vegetarian and vegan food choices.

“Many healthcare practitioners that offer Nutrigenomix testing have clients that follow a vegan or vegetarian diet, whether for health, ethical, environmental or other reasons. Until now, these clients had been overlooked by genetic tests for personalized nutrition,” said Dr. Karen Eny, Director of Clinical Services at Nutrigenomix. “Our new test was developed to enable those individuals following a plant-based lifestyle to customize a diet that considers both food choices and their unique metabolic needs.”

According to a 2019 Mintel survey, most consumers are interested in DNA-based dietary advice, and studies show that personalized information is a powerful motivator to improve individual adherence compared to population-based recommendations. Nutrigenomix is at the forefront of research in this field and is one of the only genetic testing companies worldwide to fund and conduct original research in nutritional genomics and health and performance at several universities.

“This new test is a truly unique product in the personalized nutrition industry, and yet another example of how Nutrigenomix sets the standard for the field,” said Dr. Joel Kahn, a Michigan-based Cardiologist known as “America’s Healthy Heart Doc” by Reader’s Digest Magazine. “It's exciting to have this genetic test to personalize the plant-based nutrition recommendations I give to my patients.”

Dr. Ahmed El-Sohemy, Founder and Chief Science Officer of Nutrigenomix, presented the latest research on nutrigenomics and personalized nutrition at the American College of Nutrition Conference in Seattle last year. During this award lecture, Dr. El-Sohemy shared findings of the first randomized-controlled trial of DNA-based dietary recommendations and its influence on eating behaviors by his research team at the University of Toronto. “Individuals who received DNA-based dietary advice were much more likely to follow the dietary recommendations they were given,” said Dr. El-Sohemy. “This results in greater improvements to their diet, which directly impacts several indicators of health.”

“Our genetic tests are based on the latest scientific discoveries in the field of nutrigenomics.” said Dr. Bibiana Garcia-Bailo, Director of Research and Development. “We focus on targeted, action-oriented nutrition and lifestyle genetic information. Nutrigenomix uses only the highest quality studies and most rigorous scientific standards to select the genetic markers that go into our tests.”

With offices in Canada, UK, Australia, Brazil and the United States, Nutrigenomix is expanding rapidly to meet the growing demands by healthcare professionals and consumers for a high-quality genetic testing service. As the only nutrigenetics testing company worldwide that was established at a major university, the University of Toronto, Nutrigenomix is regarded as one of the most trusted sources of genetic information for personalized nutrition.

— Julieta Santagostino,President of the FDFW Fl Chapter

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA, April 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Saturday evening 13 April 2019, the Foundation for a Drug-Free World (FDFW) Florida chapter held its 3rd Annual Drug-Free World Heroes Awards Banquet in the auditorium of Clearwater's historic Fort Harrison, shedding light on several unsung heroes and community leaders who battle the effects of drugs everyday. Some 300 people attended from many different organizations all over Tampa Bay and beyond, including law enforcement officers, teachers, pastors, and heads of non-profit organizations.

The event opened with the Boy Scouts of America Troop 313 posting the Colors and the Pinellas Sheriff’s Police Athletic League’s drumline performance.

The President of the FDFW Florida chapter, Julieta Santagostino, was the MC for the evening. She noted that the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated that in 2017 there were nearly 200 drug overdose deaths a day in the US – that’s about 72,000 a year, which is more than the number of U.S. troops who died in the entire Vietnam War.

Santagostino said, “Drugs don’t discriminate. We’ve seen this clearly in the Opioid epidemic which is destroying lives across all races and socio-economic classes. But the addicts aren’t the only ones suffering. Families are left distraught from the overdose deaths and communities are at the effect of drug crimes, making it a more dangerous environment for everyone.”

The speakers brought this home with their powerful testimonials: Michael DeLeon, founder and CEO of Steered Straight; Dr. Veronica Walters, motivational speaker, author, educator and founder of the Walters Academy for Entrepreneurship in Tampa; and original Harlem “Shake and Bake” Globetrotter, Frank Streety. They spoke of how drugs affected their lives, their decision to do something effective about drugs and how FDFW is helping them with that mission.

Frank Streety was the final speaker and he presented two Harlem Globetrotter basketballs to FDFW for their work in providing true information about drugs.

The first award winner was Pastor Moses Brown, founder of Feeding Our Children Ministries who has included educating children about drugs in his mission for over 30 years. Second was Julio Viera from Puerto Rico who became a police officer in 1996, started delivering drug education and is now a drug education counselor and certified Life Coach. The third winner, Dan Zsido, serves as the Education and Training Director with the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators. The fourth award winner, Robert Dinkel, a retired major from the Broward Sheriff’s Department, brought The D.A.R.E. drug education program to Broward County. The final award winner was Amy Ronshausen, the Executive Director of Drug Free America Foundation.

Julieta Santagostino wrapped up the evening by reminding the guests about FDFW’s mission: “Knowledge is power and at the Foundation for a Drug-Free World, we are working hard every day to empower others with knowledge. Be it through our educational seminars that are delivered throughout the state or by handing out our Truth About Drugs booklets to thousands at community events, door to door, at parades and even sporting events.” She then invited the audience to volunteer and get the free FDFW materials out into their communities.

Foundation for a Drug-Free World:

The Foundation for a Drug-Free World is a non-profit organization that educates youth and the community on the truth about illicit drugs so they can make the right decision live drug-free. The Church of Scientology is a sponsor of the program making it possible for the foundation to provide educational materials at no cost to educators, law enforcement and the community. It was the founder of the Scientology religious philosophy who said, “Research has demonstrated that the single most destructive element present in our current culture is drugs."
