    PHILADELPHIA, PA, July 22, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Three years ago, Singapore-based ShopYourWorld launched a user-friendly website designed to bring customers products from across the world. The company imports hard-to-find goods to Indian customers and compares prices unlike many other online stores. E-commerce has hit a boom in the last year, and India is not far behind in terms of plastic over cash.

    A recent article from The Hindu Business Line discussed growing trends in Asian-Pacific citizens using credit cards for online purchases. The survey, filled by MasterCard, was done in the fall of 2012. It took sample data from 7,011 people between the ages of 18 and 64, asking how they spend their money online.

    As it turns out, men buy an average 1.2 more items online per year than women do out of the 500 Indians surveyed for a total of 3.4 items. The most purchased items included airline tickets, travel agency bookings, and hotels. The article cites that this data shows a booming interest in travel for India, but purchases across the Internet are leaning toward a paperless future.

    "Currently, our website solely focuses on credit and debit card holders," says Rahil Shah, Executive Director of ShopYourWorld. "Although we are experiencing an adjustment, sixty-six percent of our current buyers are male, and this has been predominant since our inception."

    The trend does not necessarily mean that the company is focusing on male shoppers. Its goal is to increase its sales across the board, utilizing easy-to-use payments with credit cards. The site allows customers to pay with cash vouchers, credit/debit cards, and other methods, though it is primarily credit cards they see used. The survey backs this information up; it explains how 41.1 percent of purchases in the survey were made with debit/banking cards, 34.2 percent with credit cards, and 14 percent with cash for mobile purchases.

    The mobile shopping wave is rapidly taking hold of customers' attention. Sites like ShopYourWorld let customers shop from the convenience of their own homes and quickly place orders and get products from around the world. Trends show that India is warming to the idea of mobile shopping and that three out of four people surveyed have Internet access on their cellphones.

    China, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, and South Korea are ahead of India in terms of online transactions, according to the article, but the margins are closing as the years go by.

    Out of total purchases, survey respondents answered travel items, movie tickets, and mobile apps as their most frequent purchases. As cellphone technology streamlines online purchasing and ties together bank accounts with the click of a button, it is easy to see a major future in mobile shopping. ShopYourWorld uses national surveys like the one MasterCard issued to help connect and grow as a company in order to provide the best services and products possible.


    ShopYourWorld is an international importer hoping to close the gap in cross-continental online shopping. Based in Singapore, the website focuses on the Indian market. It focuses on ease-of-use and bringing any product available directly to its shoppers' doorsteps.

    PHILADELPHIA, PA, July 22, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Software developer Willard Thompson has watched the development of e-commerce unfold over the past several years. He has seen it become a more dominant presence as technology improves. A recent article on Yahoo! highlights how one company is making e-commerce more accessible to small businesses.

    Square Inc. is known for its "matchbox-sized card readers" that plug in to smart phones. It has made this technology available since 2010, making it easier for small businesses to complete transactions without the use of a credit card machine. The company, valued at $3.25 billion, has recently decided to expand into an even bigger market.

    Square Market, a shopping website, allows companies to do businesses online. It serves as an online storefront for small businesses as well as a payment processor. Many of these companies already use Square services to process credit cards and digitally manage their inventory. This development makes the service even more comprehensive. The company will now face such rivals as eBay Inc., Inc., and Etsy. Square will take a 2.75 percent cut of each payment processed, and this is how it makes its money. Other online payment companies work much the same, and this move in essence raises competition.

    According to Forrester Research, the U.S. online retail market "is expected to reach $278.9 billion by 2015." Square founder Jack Dorsey understands that competition is fierce and larger, more established e-commerce companies will initially probably "dwarf" his company. But with the increased use of online sites such as Facebook and Twitter, companies are able to reach out to more customers than ever. Dorsey says, "In the end, it's about what the merchant is selling. If you can present excitement around an item, and that item goes viral, it becomes huge."

    Dorsey is also the creator of Twitter, which launched in 2006. He wants to integrate Square Market with sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest to make shopper even easier for consumers. With the click of a button, they will have the ability to purchase items from Square Market that are linked on tweets or other posts. Credit card information is stored on Square, so once a customer clicks the link to the product, they can continue on to purchase it with ease.

    In addition, through iPad software, companies who use the service can process payments, track sales, and upload their inventory to a Web page for free for viewing. Dorsey identifies some merchants using Square Market as "a few dozen fashion boutiques, an indie rock band, a bakery in Park Slope, Brooklyn, and a purveyor of designer hand axes." Other small service providers are beginning to show interest as well. Companies that do not currently have an online presence can benefit greatly by using Square Market. It allows them the opportunity to put their business online.

    "It's great to see a really good competitor to PayPal, eBay, and the Web bazaar for small to medium size online stores," shares Willard Thompson. "Businesses can't go wrong in trying to get their store or services online nowadays. You're actually behind the times if you're not, and I can't imagine how a business can still thrive without an online presence. Adding e-commerce to your virtual storefront is just about as important and it looks like Square is making that endeavor seem even easier than their competitors. Also, the seamless integration with Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest will certainly help Square get off to a good start." Willard Thompson stays on top of the latest developments in e-commerce so that he knows how the market is changing and growing.


    Willard Thompson has worked in the technology and software industry for more than 14 years. He currently works for United Technologies Aerospace Space Systems, selling imports and software to airport companies. His work involves developing software to make the purchase of part easier for clients. He is also involved in research and has had his work published several times.

    PHILADELPHIA, PA, July 22, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Ozzie deFaria is a successful business executive who has over 25 years of managerial experience. He is has led his own team to success, and is passionate about helping others do the same. Now, deFaria is lending his support to a Huffington Post article that offers tips for finding success with business blogging. Many business professionals understand that blogging is an important way for their company to make a mark on the Internet, but often feel frustrated or unsure how to proceed.

    Consistency is one of the key points for running a successful business blog. A blog that builds up followers will quickly lose steam should posts become sporadic. Readers want to know that there is regular content to check back and view. When months go by between posts, readers will quickly lose interest. Some business professionals find that making a schedule is the easiest way to ensure consistency with their blogs. Whether it is one, three, or five posts a week, putting plans in place well in advance makes it easier to make time during the day to actually create content.

    While consistency is important, the kind of content that a professional publishes on their blog also matters. An individual who writes boring, confusing, or crude posts will probably find it challenging to recruit regular readers. The most successful blogs are those that are well-written, easy to skim, and full of useful information.

    Ozzie deFaria explains, "Internet users have a short attention span. They want articles that they can quickly glance over, and generally will not commit to reading paragraph upon paragraph of text. A business blogger should write with this information in mind, thus increasing the likelihood that a person will return to read their posts on a consistent basis. Pictures are also another way to keep blogs engaging."

    Many business professionals struggle with blogging because they fail to actually promote the work they have created.

    With so many blogs available today, proper publicity is a must in order to increase readership. A person should not hesitate to talk about their blog on their social media platforms, as well as their company's website. This lets an interested reader know that the content is available, thus making it more likely that they will take a minute to check it out. It is also wise to make mention of the blog on appropriate forums. While endless shameless self-promotion will become frustrating, a few mentions help to publicize the site.

    "Guest posting is another effective way to drive traffic to a business professional's blog. When readers on one site read the guest post and determine that the guest author has something interesting to say, they will probably take a minute to check out the writer's own site, thus increasing its popularity," explains Ozzie deFaria.


    Ozzie deFaria is a successful business executive who has more than 25 years of experience as a manager. He has led companies to substantial success, and has earned his investors more than $800M in profit values. DeFaria's family arrived from the Cape Verde islands near West Africa. DeFaria began his career at age 14, and has held a steady job since. He cites his passion and dedication for excellence as one of the keys to his success.

    PHILADELPHIA, PA, July 22, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The idea of cloud computing is a mystery to some, but for Peter Wiegandt, it is part of his career. As an experienced computer and information technology professional, he has become increasingly versed in this latest technology trend. In fact, he is working to establish an IT group in Mexico to help small businesses access cloud technology. A recent article in Forbes highlights the top 10 cloud computing myths and Wiegandt weighs in.

    More companies are turning to the cloud for business solutions. The potential it holds can greatly benefit their work. But there are many myths that surround this growing online trend. One such myth is that the only true cloud is public cloud. While public clouds are more well known, there are many private clouds that exist, and this number is growing every day. According to a 2012 Gartner Data Center Conference poll, "Almost 9 out of 10 survey respondents said they were planning, piloting, or already using a private cloud within their organizations." There are also many who use hybrid clouds, implementing aspects of both public and private clouds.

    Another myth is that "you're either in the cloud or you're not." Many companies shift to cloud-based services to meet specific needs. The transition often involves several steps and is tailored to changing company needs. Some opt for private clouds, while others prefer specialized public clouds. Hybrid clouds are also gaining more popularity. There is not one solution that fits every business. There are many options for deployment, service, and operation. This gives companies the ability to customize their cloud use to fit their requirements.

    Another misconception is that virtualization and cloud computing are the same, but this not true. Virtualization relies more on Infrastructure as a Service, while cloud computing users are trending toward Platform as a Service. Platform as a Service allows for more flexibility and sharing and less complexity and cost. Infrastructure is important when a company is determining what type of cloud usage suits their needs. Not all clouds run on commodity hardware. They often utilize many different server types.

    Two more myths are that cloud service providers lock companies in and that the service is pay-per-use. Companies have many options when choosing their cloud usage, so if they are careful when choosing a provider, they are not necessarily locked in. As for payment, some plans are pay-per-use, but others offer subscription-based pricing. Depending on needs and usage, different companies will benefit from different payment plans.

    When it comes to cloud computing, safety is always a top concern. With advances in technology, usage has become more safe and secure. There are regulatory standards that providers must meet. Keeping software and hardware up to date can also help. Some people believe that they need multiple clouds to run their business, but more providers are creating comprehensive options that meet a variety of needs. And cloud computing benefits companies in more ways than just cost savings. The flexibility and innovation of services can provide valuable solutions to running a business.

    "Cloud computing is an ever changing industry," explains Peter Wiegandt. "Businesses have so many options on how to use it to their benefit. The can customize their usage to meet specific needs and goals, allowing their company to grow and prosper. As more companies shift to using the cloud, the technology continues to improve and advance. It is important for businesses to understand what they agreeing to, however." Peter Wiegandt encourages businesses to become more informed about the possibilities that cloud computing holds.


    Peter Wiegandt is an experienced IT professional currently living in Mexico. He is working to build an IT group there that will help small businesses and government to utilize cloud technology. He previously served as the head of philanthropy for Dell Inc., as well as Vice President of the Latin American branch of the company.

    SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - July 22, 2013) - Locus Technologies (Locus), the leader in cloud-based environmental compliance and information management software, has introduced the conflict minerals module to its comprehensive SaaS platform. The conflict minerals module will provide companies with the tools necessary to comply with section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act, the new conflict minerals regulations adopted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

    Locus developed the new module to help companies oversee their use of conflict minerals such as gold, tin, tantalum, and tungsten more easily through a thorough checklist and through interactive mapping functionality. The module serves as a centralized point of reference through which companies can track, manage, and aggregate information from their suppliers about conflict minerals by product, division, or business unit. The module will make the due diligence and reporting obligations that accompany this new ruling less expensive and time-consuming. It will also support the audit capabilities as required by law.

    "We recognized the burden being placed on certain customers when the conflict minerals ruling was finalized, and saw an opportunity for Locus to help. Performing conflict minerals reporting through spreadsheets or home-built systems for a large Fortune 100 company can easily consume the time of more than 10 full-time employees," said Neno Duplan, President and CEO of Locus. "Locus is continuously striving to stay on top of new rules and regulations, and the web-based, multi-tenant architecture of our software solutions allow us to easily add new functionality and updates to our state-of-the art cloud platform. By introducing this new module, we hope that complying with the SEC's conflict minerals rule will no longer be such a daunting and expensive task."

    The U.S. SEC finalized this conflict minerals ruling in August 2012. The rule requires companies to publicly disclose their use of conflict minerals that originate from the Democratic Republic of Congo or its adjoining countries. Locus' Conflict Minerals module will be available to both new and existing customers in fall 2013 and could be used to facilitate the current year filings.


    Locus provides business with the power to be green on-demand. Locus pioneered cloud computing environmental software suites. Locus' software enables companies to organize and validate all key environmental information in a single system, which includes analytical data for water, air, soil, greenhouse gases, sustainability, compliance, and environmental content. Locus software is delivered through Cloud Computing (SaaS), so there is no hardware to procure, no large up-front license fee, and no complex set-ups.

    Collegeville, PA, July 23, 2013 --( Marseli, the marketing and sales performance insight company, today announced a new release of its Pipeline Insight marketing and sales data mining and reporting application for As revenue performance analytics continue to evolve, marketing and sales teams are looking for greater visibility and predictability of behaviors that drive success and to flag behaviors that might need course corrections.

    "We work very closely with our customers to continually listen and learn as much as we can about their ever-changing operations so that we can further advance their ability to improve revenue generation performance," said Frank Donny, CEO and Founder, Marseli. "The majority of the new release comes as a direct result of listening to not only our customers, but also our prospects, partners and analysts; which is a direct result of our commitment to continual improvement.”

    The most significant benefits of the new release include:

    · Quota Management – enhanced quota management correlated to behaviors allows sales reps and managers the insight they need to predict quota attainment and have leading indicators that flag potential quota performance issues.
    · Forecasting – the addition of a commitment tracking feature allows salespeople and managers to produce their commit list (worst case, best case and likely) based on actual opportunity attribution for any given period. Reduces the need for external report rollup that will eliminate user error and improve reporting efficiencies.
    · Multi-sales process and revenue tracking – sales operations and reporting executives can now view behaviors against multiple sales processes and revenue types, improving independent sales process adoption and revenue performance.
    · Renewal management – renewal tracking in a sales process creates havoc with the ability to measure and manage deal volume and velocity. This new functionality allows salespeople to filter out these types of opportunities for a much more valid measurement of sales process performance.

    Los Angeles, CA, July 23, 2013 --( In response to the growing list of SMB and modest enterprises unable to deploy appropriate network security protections due to budget and resource restraints, CloudAccess, a leader in cloud-based security-as-a-service solutions, announced a series of low-cost, cloud-based deployment models.

    The various bundles, which all contain intrusion detection, alerting (SIEM- security information event management) and system log archiving (Log Management) components, can now be acquired as a perpetual, one-time license fee or through a new budget-friendly monthly subscription. All the solutions provided are delivered and managed from the cloud. The perpetual license offers such services and 24/7 monitoring as an al a carte option, while the subscription models include security-as-a-service.

    "We recognize the critical role security plays in an overall operation, but realize the scope and size of an organization does not always warrant a cumbersome and invasive investment in technology and resources," said CloudAccess CEO Kevin Nikkhoo. “Not only does a cloud security deployment address performance scope, but our new program creates a means for a company to mitigate network security risk based on need and budget. In this case one size does not fit all.”

    According to a study by Ponemon Institute, upwards of 70% of companies do not have adequate IT security protection. Many of these companies are considered to be SMBs and smaller enterprises.

    CloudAccess unveiled three new deployment models based on smaller technology footprints. Basing the costs on events per second (the number of activities that look to access a network), CloudAccess created modest entry point that fits the scale of most small business, yet still provides enterprise-class features including real-time monitoring and regulatory compliance reporting.

    Information and pricing about the specific bundles can be found at

    “The goal is to right-size deployment by first understanding scope,” Nikkhoo noted. “Why pay for 500 or 1000 events per second if you company only generates 250 or needs to monitor less than 100 devices. This is the best way to keep costs to a minimum and functionality to a maximum.”

    CloudAccess now offers these scaled down bundles as both license and a subscription. Based on a companies need, scope or definition of total cost of ownership, they can choose to invest in just the technology as a one-time cost and add security-as-a-service options as needed, or apply a controlled scope package at a “below-market” cost.

    When compared to point solutions for both SIEM and log management, this combination approach is significantly more cost effective. According to CloudAccess’ statistics, companies can apply a new SIEM and Log bundle for less than any singular cloud SIEM solution currently on the market and considerably less costly than any on-premise product. CloudAccess further asserts its features and functionality are equivalent to well-known and expensive on-premise brands.

    "We recognize the balancing act between security, compliance and budget. We don’t feel a modest company should be forced to decide between one solution and another based on cost. We’ve made sure they can get both and greatly benefit from the enhanced capabilities," Nikkhoo added.

    Contact CloudAccess at to schedule a demo or call 877-550-2568 for more information.

    CloudAccess specializes in a unique unified security platform that leverages the capabilities of intrusion detection, log archiving, user credentialing, provisioning, application authorization, automations, web access management, single sign-on and compliance reporting. In that this is 100% deployed and managed from the cloud creates better real time visibility, scalability, agility and affordability for any sized organization. REACT is the only cloud-managed offering on the market that incorporates all these key security capabilities (SIEM, Log Management, Identity Management and Access Management) from a multi-tenant configuration.

    - The default look and feel can be changed by simply configuring the custom style sheet (CSS) properties.
    - Supports OTA (Over The Air) deployment via a simple URL.
    - Free deployment to all supported devices including Windows Tablet, Windows Phone, Blackberry, Google Android, and Apple iPhone, iPod and iPod.
    - Totally avoids the app approval process mandated by many sites such as the Apple App Store which alone can take weeks.
    - All programming is driven by drag and drop or pull-down lists. Avoids low level programming languages such as Java, C, Objective-C, HTML or Javscript with hundreds of difficult commands and syntax.
    - The MobiForms Developer creates an HTML app file defining the app look and feel, business logic, validation rules and Web SQL database logic encoded as HTML and Javascript. The HTML file is saved in a user definable HTML Folder in the MobiForms Settings window.
    - Supports a corporate Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategy.
