ConnectUs Automated Forms: A New Filing Solution From Securus Technology

It’s no wonder to many that Securus Technology has received an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Originally starting in Texas, Securus Technologies soon spread its influence across the nation through innovative technological solutions that save millions across the country over time. It has always been the goal of Securus to expand their utility and scope. To that end, they’ve become the premier agency when it comes to law enforcement related solutions for incarcerated inmates. One of their newest solutions is called ConnectUs.

ConnectUs Automated Forms makes it possible for thousands of hours in paperwork to be saved every year. It’s a new platform that provides inmates with endless applications. Additionally, this platform is customizable, and completely secure. Administrators of a given facility have complete control over the extent of access privileges an inmate may have on ConnectUs.

One of the primary functions of this new platform is help inmates fill out forms more quickly. Additionally, they now have the option of monitoring a form they’ve filled out; kind of like a support ticket at a technology organization.

Between medical paperwork, processing of new inmates, sign-up sheets, and complaints and grievances forms, there are quite a few areas in a regular correctional facility where paperwork is vital to operations. While surrogating such paperwork may not always be possible, a large portion of it can be eliminated by ConnectUs.

Securus has the intimate inside experience to understand when and where their new platform can best be unveiled; and to that end, they’ve managed to launch it at a number of facilities with great success. Users were very happy with the platform’s ease of use, and practically ecstatic when they realized the time-saving implications. As ConnectUs is unveiled, there will likely be substantial savings in corrective facilities who are savvy enough to launch it.

IAP Worldwide Becomes Even More Global

IAP Worldwide–the global logistics corporation–has recently acquired two new businesses which will allow them to expand both their reach and the services which they can provide to their clients. These companies–DRS Technologies’ Aviations and Logistics and Tactical Communications & Network Solutions–will be folded into a new Aviation & Engineering unit within IAP. According to their press release, this new unit will be mostly focused on IAP’s governmental contract work, allowing them to expand their services offered and strengthen their links to these existing customers.

These acquisitions are a part of IAP Worldwide’s recent strategy “based on organic growth through customer-focused discipline, lean operations, and innovation in our core government services segment, and inorganic growth realized by acquiring and integrating companies that complement our core business.” This acquisition seems to blend the two aspects of their strategy, by both acquiring a new business and using it primarily as a way to service their existing, governmental customers, and it may be a taste of something more to come for the company in light of this mission.

IAP Worldwide is a massive employer around the globe–with over 2,000 permanent employees–focusing on logistics and community management in tumultuous areas. From natural disaster response to military organization, IAP Worldwide deals with the “unexpected,” and they have been doing so for more than 60 years. From their start designing the launch base at Cape Canaveral to their ongoing support of the military to their international expansion, becoming an employer in over 20 countries, IAP’s mission statement has been to adopt their customers’ missions and work passionately with that in mind.

IAP also works to make sure that their services and strategies are never static, due to the sensitive and important nature of their work on LinkedIn. Being able to be both fast and flexible when working to save homes and lives is one of the most important qualities that IAP strives for. The compartmentalization of their services is one of the factors that allows them to do this, with each of their units having a specialized field that they focus on while still being under the same umbrella, they can communicate and come up with ideas that a company focused on a single area could not.

Given IAP’s focus on humanitarian efforts, services that affect how people live their lives and how lives can be saved or protected, this expansion hopefully points toward more growth in the company’s future, and more opportunities to meet their goals.

Madison Street Capital Overview and 2016 Hedge Fund Forecast

Madison Street Capital reports that 2016 could be a record year for hedge fund M&As and investment banking as a whole. To date, hedge fund assets are reaching record-breaking levels despite the mediocre number of transactions that occurred in 2014 and 2015. Madison reported that a total of 42 hedge fund transactions occurred in 2015 and only 32 transactions occurred in 2014. Despite the low totals, Madison still projects a record-breaking year.

 

The alternative asset sector is seeing increasing cash inflows from institutional investors. The hope is to match the continued rise in liabilities with an equal disbursement of returns. However, smaller hedge fund managers are taking a big hit in their pursuit of new capital as investors seek alternative assets. The good news for smaller hedge funds is they may see a return of new capital if the alternative investment sector starts to tank in 2016.

The company and its team are leading experts in mergers and acquisitions, financial analysis and opinions, valuation services and asset management.

Igor Cornelsen’s Advice On Why People Should Zero In On Passive Income

There is the need to have a broad economy that guarantees employment to young people given that many people are graduating from college. However, as the economy grows, most young people have been forced to consider alternative forms of businesses including self-employment.

In recent years, most people have come to realize the benefits of passive income. Based on the inquiries from the internet, it is clear that passive income is a new area that one should consider knowing about. The conversation in different social media and online platforms is a good indicator of the need for the people to consider investing in passive income.

According to Igor Cornelsen, many people are interested in making more money. However, they would like to make such money without the need of direct involvement. People are now investing in activities that have a guaranteed passive or residue income because of its many benefits.

The first benefit is that one does not have to be present him or her to make the income. For one to create active income, he or she should be actively involved in such money-generating venture. This means that when an individual is not directly involved, he or she would not make money. For active income, people will continue working irrespective of being sick, tired of bored. In passive income, one needs to locate a good income-generating activity besides setting up sound strategies. Once these strategies are functioning, such an individual will not be required to check the performance of the activity on a regular basis. This situation allows an individual to zero in on other activities.

The other benefit of passive income is continuous flow of income. With the fast professional life, time is quickly becoming a scarce commodity. People have hardly any time to catch sleep or relax. Individuals are working longer hours. According to Igor, passive income generating activities do not require one to monitor the situation at all times. Through passive income, money can be generated even when one is asleep, sick or out of town.

Igor Cornelsen posits that generation of active income requires an individual to invest some resources at the beginning. More resources are be channeled towards monitoring or tracking the activities. These resources may be expended on an individual employed to oversee the active income activities. However, passive income is a one-off activity. Once the activity is running, an individual will not be needed to add more resources.

Igor asserts that the cost of living has been increasing on a daily basis. People have to spend more money to make ends meet. He continues to say that with the increase in daily pressures, time has seemed to decline. Currently, most people are creating income by zeroing in on activities that are generating passive or residue income. Igor concludes by saying that the best option is for people to start their own online businesses as they can start with any budget and at the comfort their houses.

Dick Devos And His Charities

In Michigan, if your name is Dick DeVos that name carries a lot of influence and clout with it. But the clout and influence have little to do with your monetary wealth which according to many sources is in excess of 5 Billion dollars, no it’s mainly because of how much of his money he gives away to various causes and charities he is interested in supporting every year. Their giving for the longest time used to be fairly secretive, now, for the first time, the DeVos family is actually shedding some light on their giving practices, which actually runs throughout the whole family. This giving has all been made public in a Forbes Magazine issue on family foundations. In this issue, The DeVos family revealed that it has given over 1.2 Billion dollars in its lifetime and over 94 Million Dollars in 2014 alone ranking the DeVos family 20th of the top 50 families named as America’s top givers. One of the issues that is close to this family’s heart is supporting conservative political issues and conservative candidates seeking office. Even though the article does not cover money given to political candidates it does include money given to conservative think tanks and similar institutions.

Two organizations in Michigan, however, MLive and The Grand Rapids press have compiled even more detailed information on their giving arrangements. They were able to do this using DeVos family income tax records from 2013. The Devos family donated, in total, 91 million dollars in 2013 with almost half of it being given to education causes, 27 percent to community projects and health organizations, 13 percent to churches and faith-based causes, and 23 percent to the arts. This is new for the Devos family because in the past they have instructed all of the organizations they have given money to not to discuss the gifts with anyone. The access to this information has, however, revealed some of the strategies in their giving practices. The family’s giving leverages additional donations from DeVos family friends and business associates, the DeVos Foundations also provide strategic advice to institutions receiving their money, they also extend their influence on giving through their service on various boards and other business connections.

Rich DeVos and his family have long been supporters of Christian nonprofits that provide services to the city’s poorest residents. They have also been one of the biggest contributors to the DeVos Institute for the Arts Management at the University of Maryland. They have not only helped the university personally but have also been instrumental in helping to get others to raise millions to expand the University’s campus. This has only been achieved because as a master salesman and public speaker Rich DeVos has the leadership and influence to pull others into the projects he is passionate about.
