Eftia Partners With One Of The Largest PCS Providers










Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) September 16, 2004

Eftia, a global provider of operations management software solutions designed to meet the business automation needs of communications service providers and large enterprises, today announced that an all-PCS nationwide wireless provider in the US, has selected Eftia’s Master.Scribe to manage its state of the art wireless as well as their existing equipment in their lab network.

The wireless provider chose Eftia’s products to replace its internal systems and databases, specifically those related to asset and inventory management as well as telephone number and internet protocol (IP) address management. Procuring the Master.Scribe Inventory and Number Management Applications in order to manage these assets and circuits, it will utilize the Eftia product in nine telecom labs across the United States.

The inventory module will assist them in better managing their equipment, enabling improved administration of their hardware cost structure as well as enhanced scheduling in their test planning projects.

All testing and certification of the wireless service provider’s equipment and processes is undertaken in the lab environment before being incorporated into the field network. In order to handle this process Master.Scribe has been installed in one lab where Eftia is currently engaged in an onsite training consulting engagement to configure the Master.Scribe product and optimize its use in their lab environment. This partnership will undoubtedly prove the ability of Eftia Master.Scribe to support next-generation wireless networks, especially as the service provider completes its migration to third-generation (3G) wireless technology this year.    

“Eftia is tremendously excited to be playing a part in their plans,” says Stephen Parker, Eftia President and CEO. “We know that our products will increase their efficiency and flexibility to better enable the company to model and meet the demands of changing service offerings.” In addition to enabling them to build and maintain comprehensive records of their communications network, Eftia’s inventory management system will reduce time in testing of equipment, more efficiently manage the circuits between lab locations, and handle the association of IP number management with the data network.

ARINC Completes Implementation of Eftia’s Master.Scribe Suite

ARINC Completes Implementation of Eftia’s Master.Scribe Suite










Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) April 15, 2005

Eftia, a global provider of operations management software solutions designed to meet the business automation needs of communications service providers and large enterprises, today announced that ARINC, an Annapolis, Maryland based transportation, communications and systems engineering firm, has completed the phased implementation of Eftia’s Master.Scribe Suite.

ARINC started their implementation with the Master.Scribe Inventory Module, which allowed them to eliminate several disparate applications and databases. “We now have one authoritative database of record for all of our circuits and assets” says Jerry Owens, Director of Infrastructure Support, “We can now quickly obtain and report on all necessary information to manage our inventory, such as circuits and equipment in service, actual in-service dates, disconnects, and even depreciation schedules if we choose”.

ARINC then followed with the implementation of the MasterScribe Service Order Module, which allowed them to combine all of their provisioning processes into a series of crisp workflows, all managed within the OSS Suite. “ No more swivel-chair data entry, faxes, or emails” says Mike Martelli, ARINC’s Project Manager for Operations. All aspects of the provisioning process are managed within the Master.Scribe Suite with activity assignments automatically controlled and exceptions reported when a service jeopardy exists”.

Just recently, the Master.Scribe Trouble Management module was rolled out to complete the project. “This was a smooth rollout”, remarked Owens, “The fact that the modules are already tightly integrated eliminated a lot of worry and minimized testing”. “Our Operation’s Team is seeing a great improvement in the day-to-day operation with complete access to all customer and network information, and a reduction in the amount of tickets opened due to the tight parent-child data relationships within the system” Overall, it’s been a very positive product implementation and the Eftia team has been very dedicated and responsive.

“The next steps will be to promote the capabilities of the Master.Scribe Suite into other verticals at ARINC”, says Joey Leaskey, Eftia Director of Global Sales. “That process has already begun and it will continue to add to the solid ROI model being realized for this OSS application”.

Best in Class Health Care Fraud Solutions from Thomson Reuters and i-Sight











i-Sight Case Management Software for health care fraud investigations.

Ottawa, Canada (Vocus) September 9, 2010

Today, Customer Expressions Corp. announced that the company will be co-exhibiting at upcoming health care fraud conferences with Thomson Reuters. With the signing of the Universal Health Care Bill in the US earlier this year, health care fraud and payment recapture have become main priorities for both the federal government and industry leaders. It has been reported that payment recapture initiatives are expected to put at least $ 2 billion over the next three years back into taxpayer pockets.

Thomson Reuters has developed best in class solutions for health care fraud detection, abuse and waste, while the i-Sight Case Management Software is a best in class solution for managing health care fraud investigations. The cutting edge solutions offered by both companies raise the bar in health care fraud prevention, detection and investigation.

In the coming months, members from i-Sight and Thomson Reuters will join together to attend a series of health care fraud conferences throughout North America. Some of the topics addressed at each of the conferences include how to conduct health care fraud investigations, international examples of health care fraud, medical identity theft and the impact of health care fraud on society and the health care industry itself.

Ray Gerard, President at Customer Expressions stated, “Health care fraud is an epidemic. In 2009 alone, an estimated $ 54 billion was lost due to improper Medicare and Medicaid payments. As efforts to tighten health care fraud controls in the US are put into place, technology and software solutions, including i-Sight Case Management Software, help identify repeat offenders and improve investigations into health care fraud allegations.”

Here is a list of upcoming health care fraud conferences that we will be attending with the Thomson Reuters team:


The 26th Annual NAMPI Conference, hosted by the National Association for Medicaid Program Integrity. The conference takes place in New Orleans, Louisiana from September 12-15.

Online Natural Health Center Meets Pain Relief Needs of Millions of Arthritis Sufferers Left Reeling from Vioxx Recall

Online Natural Health Center Meets Pain Relief Needs of Millions of Arthritis Sufferers Left Reeling from Vioxx Recall










(PRWEB) October 5, 2004

Natural Health Center, an online natural health products resource and online store has announced its preparedness to assist arthritis sufferers who had been taking Vioxx for arthritis pain prior to the drug’s recall on September 30th.

In response to Merck’s recall, Natural Health Center (NHC) has put together a variety of arthritis pain relief packages for those who now find themselves without a safe means to relieve arthritis pain.

“What many people don’t realize is that popular prescription drugs only manage symptoms, they don’t actually address the underlying cause of the disease,” said Dr. Dan Nuzum, Naturopathic doctor at NHC.

“So what you get is simply pain management, without improvement of the condition itself. But with natural treatments like herbal supplements and homeopathic remedies, both the root cause of the disease is addressed as well as the pain and discomfort it causes – and its all done safely and naturally.

One of the main causes for arthritis is a parasite called Protozoa. Arthritis is also caused by a virus. Once the body is rid of the offending parasite or virus, the natural healing process can begin.

Millions of people suffering from arthritis worldwide are today scrambling for an alternative to Vioxx and other arthritis prescription medications. Natural Health Center provides an effective solution by offering a safe, proven method to treat the painful disease.

Natural Health Center (NHC) has arthritis relief packages available to those who are looking for a new, safe form of relief. We offer the highest quality herbal and natural products available. To learn more about how we can help relieve your arthritis pain, stop by:

CitiStreet Deploys Third Brigade Host Intrusion Defense System

CitiStreet Deploys Third Brigade Host Intrusion Defense System











Ottawa, ON and Reston, VA (PRWEB) October 18, 2006

Third Brigade (http://www.thirdbrigade.com)], a security software company that specializes in host intrusion defense systems , today announced the deployment of its software by CitiStreet.

CitiStreet is one of the largest and most experienced global benefits providers servicing over 11 million plan participants across all markets, with $ 200 billion in assets under administration in the US for defined contribution, defined benefit and health and welfare plans of corporate, government, health care, Taft-Hartley and not-for-profit organizations. CitiStreet, a joint venture between State Street Corp. and Citigroup, brings together the unique expertise and strengths of two trusted financial institutions.

“Protecting mission critical servers is a top priority for us,” said Jim Bearce, Technical Information Security Officer of CitiStreet. “After rigorously evaluating the leading alternatives over an extended period of time, we concluded that Third Brigade provides the most effective, deployable solution, and backs it up with highly responsive, professional support. Third Brigade software will allow us to provide additional security which builds upon our existing network and host-based security controls. “

Third Brigade’s host intrusion defense system uses deep packet inspection to detect and prevent known and zero-day attacks. It is quickly becoming a standard part of the server build in companies that have a defense-in-depth strategy and recognize the need to stay ahead of the latest threats.

Third Brigade allows CitiStreet to meet its corporate compliance requirements, and its customers’ requirements to comply with tough industry regulations such as the Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

“The financial services sector is demanding when it comes to IT security,” said Wael Mohamed, President and CEO of Third Brigade. “But our open architecture allows companies to readily integrate host-based intrusion defense with security information and event management (SIEM) and other infrastructure investments, to create their own security rules, and to have complete visibility of the defense process.”

About Third Brigade

Third Brigade specializes in providing intrusion defense systems to financial services, health care, government, telecommunications and other organizations that need to detect and prevent attacks that exploit vulnerabilities in commercial and custom software, including web applications. It enables you to create and enforce comprehensive security policies that proactively protect critical applications, sensitive data, and hosts, ensure regulatory compliance, and maximize the performance of your people, processes and hosts. Unlike others, Third Brigade software is not intrusive: it is smaller, faster and simpler. Third Brigade. That’s control.
