Securus Has Given Us Many Secure Calls

Securus is the best thing that ever happened to our family once my brother went to jail. He is a in a special program for drug use, and he could be there for up to four months. We have been using it for just a week, but it has given us more than one phone call that was perfect. I have their app on my phone, and we have made video calls to him in jail. They are very clear calls so we can see how he is doing, and we are also very happy that we can do it all together.
The next thing that people need to realize is that we are making secure calls. It is really nice to know that we are on a secure line and have the privacy that we would have had when we were actually in the jail. This makes life easier for everyone, and we do not have to feel like we are going to be talking about family business in front of a bunch of people. We know that Securus respects us as people, and we also want to make sure that we can just talk when we call in. Securus makes it easy, and we can see that we are on a secure line when we start using the app on my phone.

Stay up to date with Securus on Linkedin.com.

We can call in at just about any time to see him, and we get a very clear picture of him so that we can see how he is doing. We can be sure that he safe, and we can keep talking to him until he gets out.

Helane Morrison and the high expectations of compliance officers

I recently read a very interesting article about the fast growing career of compliance officers. The field has recently seen the growth of 10 percent a year and universities are creating degree programs for the occupation. The growth is tied to the regulations that were implemented due to the 2008 financial crisis. An officer who can assess the conduct of a company has become a necessity.

The role of a compliance officer is to make sure that the company is aware of and operating within the bounds of current regulations. This individual can recognize breaches of regulations, resolve the offense and ensure that it won’t be repeated.

An ideal compliance officer has a background in law or accounting and must have the ability to form good relationships with coworkers.

Helane Morrison is a dynamic woman. I was impressed by her education and her extensive experience. Morrison earned a B.S. from Northwestern University for Journalism and a Doctorate of Law from the University of California at Berkely School of Law. I was impressed by her accomplishments, she clerked for Supreme Court Justice Harry A. Blackmun and U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Richard A. Posner. Morrison made partner at the law firm of Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk and Rabikn in just five years. This was followed by an impressive career in the San Fransico office of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Morrison ran the San Fransisco division of the SEC and held the titles of Regional Director and District Administrator. Morrison successfully enforced regulations. Under her leadership charges were brought and convictions received against Republic New York, Dean Witter, and California Micro Devices.

Since 2007 Helane has been employed as the Managing Director, General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer at Hall Capital Partners LLC. Morrison is also a member of the company’s Executive Committee.
Morrison holds positions on the Board of the Regional Parks Foundation and the Hedge Fund Subcommittee of the American Bar Association. It is a job that requires a high level of business and legal knowledge. Morrison exemplifies these qualities and displays dedication, honor, and integrity in her professional life.

FreedomPop To Use WhatsApp to Succeed in the Spanish Market

FreedomPop deserves great kudos for its innovative practices. The Los Angeles budget mobile phone/data company has come up with an excellent new idea: zero-rated service for WhatsApp users.

How does that work? Basically, even if the a FreedomPop user’s data is depleted to absolute zero, the user can still access WhatsApp. No one every has to be out of the WhatsApp loop.

FreedomPop does understand that each and every market is different. In the United States and the United Kingdom, simply offering a tremendous deal on mobile service and data was more than enough to draw in scores of customers.

In Spain, a little extra work needed to be done. Tapping into the popularity of WhatsApp was necessary in order to connect better with the Spanish consumer base. Since FreedomPop does not employ a generic marketing approach in every marketing as the management of the company realizes this would not be a wise path to take.

FreedomPop, however, has not signed any specific partnership agreements with WhatsApp or its parent company Facebook. Honestly, FreedomPop doesn’t have to form a partnership just to exclude users from data charges on apps.

Spain is the prized third market FreedomPop wants to enter. The territory could prove to be a lucrative one. Since 70% of mobile customers in Spain are active with WhatsApp, it is no surprise FreedomPop wants to keep these potential customers happy.

Venture Beat has the whole story on FreedomPop’s plans in Spain. The article truly does cast light on the brilliance of the company.

FreedomPop is Freeing Customers from High Mobile Bills

In an interview on Mobile World Live, Nicholas Constantinopoulos, President of FreedomPop, talked to interviewer Kavit Majithia about his company’s recent launch into the UK, a second test market after the launch in the US. Majithia was curious about how this launch was received by other operators in European markets. Constantinopoulos explained that the successful launches alleviated worries by some 25 markets in Europe; now that FreedomPop has proved it can make a profit, it is no longer looked at with suspicion.

This conversion proves the company can be profitable giving its customers free data; profits are made by selling equipment. Constantinopoulos’s feeling is that now that he has shown his company’s plan can work in developed markets, the company can move into undeveloped markets.

The Emergence of Visual Search Technology

One thing that could be said for the Internet is that the visual nature of the online world is getting to be more prevalent, especially since the Internet has advanced greatly to the point that it can process enough data to allow for high quality images. Since the Internet has become more visual by nature, it is only fitting that search engines would follow suit. There is now visual search technology that is going to help people find what they are looking for. It also gives people a better idea of what an item is and how it works. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

One company that is making the most out of the visual search industry is Slyce. Slyce is a company that deals with retail. It allows people to search for items that they find out in the real world or in magazines or other forms of media. When people use visual search, they can more easily find the products that they are looking for with Slyce. They can download the technology to their phone or tablet so that they can actually find some new products that they like for themselves.

Slyce has partnered up with plenty of retail companies in order to help raise up business. Slyce has proven to be really good for business in that it not only shows people what item it is they are looking at, but also refers them to similar products that vary in price. Often times, people find products that they like better with Slyce. This is where retail stores are given even more business.
