    COCONUT CREEK, Fla., July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — VUE Software® today announced that a rapidly growing health insurance technology and distribution partner recently selected the VUE Compensation Management™ solution for its compensation management infrastructure. A subsidiary of one of the top ten health insurance companies in the United States the organization is hiring and training thousands of agents and service workers. The firm plans to leverage the system’s comprehensive commission management capabilities, which include automated revenue reconciliation, to confirm commission accuracy across multiple carriers, maintain smooth operations and ensure correct, timely agent compensation.

    Because of its highly specialized business model, rapid growth and ongoing interactions with carriers, exchanges, agents and consumers, the insurance service partner required a robust, configurable system able to scale to high business volumes. Revenue reconciliation was a deciding factor due to the need to verify payment accuracy across a multi-carrier, multi-hierarchy environment and incorporate pay structures such as flat fees, percentages and multiple commission tiers. In addition, higher transaction volumes were anticipated to accommodate the effects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and increases in Medicare use with a shifting retiree population.

    The service partner chose VUE Compensation Management following a referral from an existing VUE Software client on the basis of revenue reconciliation. The solution is being integrated into the service partner’s technology and will provide comprehensive revenue reconciliation capabilities as partnerships are established in the organization’s aggressive growth phase.

    “With our dedicated insurance focus and successful track record with reputable clients, VUE Software is an excellent choice for companies that need to rise above industry complexities and healthcare reform challenges,” said Abhinav Dave, executive vice president of VUE Software. “Unlike many solutions, automated reconciliation is built into VUE Compensation Management so our customers can keep pace with complex commission environments. Reconciling variations between expected revenue and payments received is just good business, but doing it manually can be extremely time-consuming. Higher transaction volumes increase the potential for error, particularly in multi-carrier situations. Only a sophisticated system like ours can make accuracy easy.”

    VUE Compensation Management’s revenue reconciliation module enables service providers, managing general agents (MGAs), Health Insurance Exchanges (HIXs), carriers and other key partners to forecast, track, measure, compare and recognize earned revenue and avoid agent overpayments. Automation streamlines payment and reconciliation processes, saves time and money, helps eliminate errors and increases overall efficiencies. The system helps strengthen partner relationships by providing factual evidence for any payment errors, since all calculations are documented according to the contracted commission structure.

  • Software maker E2open plans more revenue, less BlackBerry

    Comments Off on Software maker E2open plans more revenue, less BlackBerry
    August 13, 2019 /  Computer Technology, Software

    Supply chain management software maker E2open Inc (EOPN.O) expects its revenue to hit $100 million for the first time next fiscal year, after replacing its dependence on BlackBerry Ltd (BB.TO) and PC makers with a host of new customers.

    Chief Executive Mark Woodward said he expected E2open, which went public a year ago, to boost its sales in the 12 months to February 2015 after adding up to 20 new enterprise customers in the current fiscal year.

    “We do $80 million (in revenue) this year and we grow 30 percent next year. That should get us there,” Woodward said in an interview, referring to the $100-million revenue target.

    E2open, which makes cloud-based software designed to assist companies in managing their supply chains, has more than doubled its annual revenue in the five years since Woodward took charge. Revenue in the fiscal year to February 28, 2013, was $75 million.

    The company’s shares have risen about 35 percent since they began trading on the Nasdaq on July 26 last year.

    Three of the six analysts covering E2open have a “strong buy” rating on the stock. The other three rate it “buy”, according to Thomson Reuters data. The company has a market capitalization of $460 million.

    With a customer base that includes Coca-Cola Co (KO.N), Unilever Plc (ULVR.L), IBM (IBM.N) and Cisco Systems Inc (CSCO.O), E2open has been diversifying to cut its dependence on any one large customer.

    Last year, that customer was Canadian smartphone maker BlackBerry (BBRY.O).

    Woodward said he expected BlackBerry’s contribution to E2open’s revenue to fall to less than 3 percent in the current fiscal year from nearly 15 percent last year.

    BlackBerry, which pioneered on-the-go email with its handsets and messaging systems, has slipped into tough times as it struggles to keep pace with nimbler rivals.

    Woodward said BlackBerry’s quarterly shipments of about 7 million units were between a quarter and a third of the volume contracted when it became a customer of E2open four years ago.

    “Their usage of our systems, just because they are selling less handsets, has come down dramatically,” said Woodward.

    E2open has, on average, signed up 17 enterprise customers in each of the last two years. In total, it has 76 enterprise customers – those which buy E2open’s software as well as pay for access to its network of suppliers and trading partners.

    Computer maker Dell Inc (DELL) brought in 22.5 percent of E2open’s revenue in fiscal 2011. Now, it accounts for less than 5 percent – even though its contribution in dollar terms has risen, Woodward said.

    “The original deal that we signed with Dell was for $3.2 million for three years,” he said. “The last bill we signed with Dell was for $3.2 million per year.”

    British mobile telephone company Vodafone Group Plc (VOD.L) (VOD.O) is the largest customer for Foster City, California-based E2open, having contributed 12.1 percent of the company’s revenue last fiscal year.

    Another customer, Seagate Technology LLC (STX.O), held a 9 percent stake in E2open as of December last year.

  • Safari and Chrome Still Leads Mobile Web Browser

    Comments Off on Safari and Chrome Still Leads Mobile Web Browser

    Jakarta – Around 80 percent of the world population has a mobile phone. The number of mobile phones around the world estimated to be about 5 billion units, with 1.08 billion units of which include smart phones. Thus, it’s no wonder when browsing on the Internet today is mostly done through mobile phones.

    Most of the smart phone owners, as quoted from the go-globe.com, prefer to use a standard mobile web browser, aka the phones default browser. They reason, the default web browser is definitely the best for their phones.

    There is also the thought that they do not need to change the web browser because it did not want to be bothered by trivial matters, such as the need to download first and then run the application.

    Another reason put forward is that they feel no need to update the web browse, as is done on a notebook or desktop computer. Therefore, updating the application is much more important than replacing the web browser on the mobile device.

    For desktop and notebook computers, the web browser is the most widely used Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, and Safari. Competition to be the most popular frequently occur between Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and Google Chrome.

    In mobile devices, such as smart mobile phones and tablet computers, maps of different strength. Which became the market share leader for the mobile web browser is Apple’s Safari and Google’s Chrome browser fib.

    However, in recent months, Safari increasingly dominant. According to the output data from Net Applications, Safari controlled 61.79 percent market share for web traffic in March. In fact, months before Apple’s browser only won 55.41 percent market share.

    In general, mobile web browsers can be distinguished from ability, such as opening a different site, doing page zoom, and make a keyboard shortcut. However, there is also an optimal mobile web browsers on mobile devices use only.

    In addition, there are several mobile devices also can not offer a lot of choice what mobile web browsers can be used. One of the devices is a flexible mobile devices with Windows Mobile operating system.

    In Indonesia, people always want a high-speed mobile web browser.

    “We provide the connectivity features with high compression, especially on a busy network. Compression is also advantageous because the users were able to save the battery, “said Communications Manager Opera Indonesia, Agnes Agastia, two weeks ago.

    No less aggressive in offering the experience of using a mobile web browser is Google. According to Google’s Head of Communications Indonesia Vishnu K. Mahmud, Google will continue to focus on developing a modern browser Chrome that will provide the best experience for its users.

    Mobile web browser is best for your device, of course depending on the need and type of device used. Therefore, not all mobile devices compatible with the existing web browser.
