Award-Winning Software/App Closing Commander™ Now Compatible With All Major Email Providers

HarkinsHill, LLC., the developer behind the automated sales closing app/system, Closing Commander™, has expanded the app’s email compatibility to include Gsuite, Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, and other major email providers. That’s good news for service business owners and their teams, who rely on, not just a new system’s effectiveness and time-saving abilities, but also its ability to seamlessly fit with their current business systems.

The app/system is designed to save service business owners and their teams time and effort by automatically sending follow-up emails to customers once an initial bid, quote, or estimate is provided. The app relies on tested timing and the marketing Rule of Seven to ensure effectiveness, although timing between emails and email body content can be customized to fit the company’s needs and brand. Some companies using the app have seen six-figure revenue increases within just a few short months.

Caleb Martinez, a contractor in the Chicago area describes his experience using the app/system, “Closing Commander has been an excellent tool for our company. It’s a big time-saver, and customers appreciate the communication. We are winning a lot of jobs after three or four emails have been sent, and the stats in the app definitely prove its value every month.”

Closing Commander won the “Best New Product Innovation Award” from The Pete Luter Foundation in 2018 and the “Top Four Innovation Showcase Award” at this year’s Service World Expo in Las Vegas. Business owners interested in learning more about the app, scheduling a demo, or signing up for a free trial are encouraged to visit closingcommander.com.

HarkinsHill,LLC is the parent company of Closing Commander and Spark Marketer, a Nashville-based digital marketing company that primarily serves blue collar businesses. While the Closing Commander app certainly has uses in other industries, the company’s passion and mission remains to strengthen blue collar businesses around the globe.

Remcom Announces 5G Antenna Array Design Features In XFdtd Electromagnetic Simulation Software

Remcom announces 5G antenna array design features in the latest release of XFdtd® 3D EM Simulation Software, including workflow enhancements for modeling complex devices at millimeter wave frequencies.

The advanced antenna systems in modern devices leverage beam steering and multiple data stream transmission to meet 5G throughput requirements. XFdtd provides performance metrics for 5G beam steering applications by simulating the radiation pattern for different array or subarray phasing conditions that are used to steer a beam. By considering the optimal gain levels of the various beam steering scenarios, XFdtd plots the cumulative distribution function (CDF) of the effective isotropic radiated power (EIRP) of the array as a whole. The EIRP is an important indicator of the array’s quality of coverage and is particularly valuable for analyzing 5G-capable devices that support multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) use cases.

Rodney Korte, product manager for XFdtd, said, “The CDF of EIRP metric is growing in importance as carriers require devices to meet strict quality thresholds. Our customers designing mobile devices need to measure the gain of many signals propagating in different directions, and Remcom is at the forefront of this emerging technology. The new CDF of EIRP plot is a way to help design engineers prepare their devices for the challenging demands of 5G networks.”

The matching network design workflow has also been enhanced via XFdtd’s integration with Optenni Lab™ matching circuit optimization software. Optenni's optimized matching topology data can now be imported directly into XFdtd, providing users with immediate feedback on how the circuit will behave and eliminating the need to run another simulation. Results such as S-parameters, efficiency, and dissipated power are readily available for analysis of system performance, greatly simplifying the matching process for intricate devices with many frequency bands.

The release also introduces modeling options that improve simulation accuracy for the higher frequencies typical of the antennas in modern devices, including a new feed specifically designed for exciting microstrips, surface current measurement, and a user-defined input for surface roughness of conductors.

For more information on the latest release of XFdtd, please visit Remcom’s website. XFdtd users without an active Remcom Professional Support contract can upgrade to the latest version by contacting sales.

About Remcom: Remcom provides innovative electromagnetic simulation and wireless propagation software for users in the commercial wireless industry and government sectors. Remcom’s products are designed to work together to provide complete and accurate results when modeling propagation with real-world devices in real-world scenarios. Remcom is committed to its customers’ unique needs, offering flexible licensing options for installations of all sizes as well as custom engineered solutions.

About WordPress

WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day. WordPress started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as a full content management system and so much more through the use of thousands of plugins, widgets, and themes. WordPress is limited only by your imagination.

Powersolv Partners With Leading Cybersecurity Specialists to Deliver High Quality Security Solutions That Provide Comprehensive Protection

Cybersecurity is often defined as measures taken to protect a computer or computer system against unauthorized access or attack. It includes an ever-evolving set of tools, technologies, trainings, and techniques that work together to address security threats.

The heavy dependence on technology has resulted in an enormous surge in data creation which is stored on computer systems of organizations and shared across networks. Over time, the identification of vulnerabilities in this technology makes organizations susceptible to attacks by hackers.

One of the biggest cyber-attacks in the IT history was the WannaCry ransomware attack that took over computers and encrypted hard drive contents. The hackers then demanded a huge ransom payment in Bitcoin in order to decrypt the data.

NotPetya, which originated from the compromised Ukrainian accounting software, was a major cyber-attack that spread via the same EternalBlue exploit that WannaCry used.
Equifax, the credit rating agency major, announced in July 2017 that hackers had exploited a weak link in a U.S. website application to access confidential files with personal information of millions of clients.

The consequences of data breach can be devastating to an organization and can affect not only its reputation and standing in the market, but also its revenue. The projected annual damages from cybercrime are expected to reach trillion by 2021. The projected cybersecurity spending for 2017-2021 is expected to be around trillion. The frequency and sophistication of cyber-attacks are growing with time and that’s why organizations must have a strong cybersecurity system in place to ensure that their sensitive data remains protected at all times.

Many organizations have become increasingly vulnerable, in part through modifying their infrastructure to accommodate applications, mobile devices, cloud computing, and Internet of Things (IoT). This has allowed cybercriminals to take advantage of any vulnerability they can find. It is becoming increasingly clear that traditional rule-based, reactive security methods cannot offer adequate and effective protection against today’s modern, persistent, AI driven, and creative cyberattacks. The best way to provide comprehensive security is to use a defensive in-depth approach which should include advanced full-service, AI-driven Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services.
Cybersecurity measures involve ensuring security of applications, database, infrastructure, data, network, endpoint, cloud, mobile, and others. The security of these can be breached by cyber threats such as malware, phishing, and ransomware.

Cybersecurity is addressed by creating a series of defensive measures around a definite perimeter. However, the latest industry trends such as ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) and work from anywhere have resulted in broadening the scope of attack. Even with many organizations allocating and spending huge sums on increasing the levels of security, breaches are happening at a rapid pace across the world.

Human-centric cybersecurity that’s built on behavior analytics is the latest in this domain and focuses on changes in human behavior. The principle is based on the identification of behavioral incongruities so that grave threats can be identified, investigations can be concluded quickly, and detection times reduced drastically.

Powersolv, a premier Information Technology Services Company and one of the leading providers of Enterprise Solutions to Federal, State, and County entities as well as Local and Not-for-Profit Agencies, works with some of the biggest names in cybersecurity to provide intuitive and robust security solutions that enable organizations to detect, respond, and manage these highly evolved cyber threats.

Powersolv, working with its partners in Cybersecurity services, has become a disrupter in the security industry by introducing smart, crowd-sourced security testing through a comprehensive platform that covers every element of cyber risk. Clients are able to anticipate potential attacks and mitigate them by using a groundbreaking AI-Driven Managed Detection and Response system, designed to take down even the most sophisticated threats.

“No company wants to be in the news for reasons related to security breaches as that can bring their reputation crashing down,” says the President and CEO, Rahul Dhawan. “We help organizations stand strong and assist in stonewalling attempts at infiltrating their systems by offering one of the best security solutions available today. We have partnered with some of the biggest names in global cybersecurity solutions to strengthen our offering and transform the way companies handle their cyber security needs.”

With these strategic partnerships, Powersolv offers their clients a comprehensive solution that’s fully managed and involves the use of the best resources. The solutions are designed to provide robust protection to all the vulnerable areas of business operations by incorporating the best software, processes, and human intelligence.
