Bell Robot Announces the Crowdfunding Campaign and Launch of Their Modular Interactive Robotics Learning Kit for Kids

Press Release

updated: Sep 21, 2017 10:05 PDT

Mabot takes learning and makes it fun. Their interactive robotics learning kit is an educational toy designed especially for kids and youngsters. It’s the first modular robot kit that allows nearly endless combinations of robot builds that is simple to use, educational, as well as fun for the whole family.

Using a series of modular balls that easily connect together, a virtually endless number of robots can be built. Building and modifying robots is fast and simple using hot-plugin, a feature that allows the balls to be connected and disconnected without the need to turn off the power. A Battery Ball powers other components that drive the robot, sense colors and objects nearby and even pick things up. A Brain Ball controls it all along with two intuitive Apps that make programming fun and easy, the Mabot Go App and the more advanced, Mabot IDE App.

For beginners, the Mabot Go App includes pre-set, step-by-step build instructions for more than 10 robots that guide new builders toward their goal while demonstrating basic coding. Once users are ready to take it to the next level, the advanced Mabot IDE App is used to program the robot for more complicated tasks using coding blocks similar to Arduino. Having two Apps creates a pathway to learning for young programmers who can learn and grow at their own pace.

As engineers, robotics experts and parents, we realize the importance of raising children with valuable skills for the future. But we also know that learning must be fun in order to fully engage kids. We designed Mabot with fun as a first priority and then created a learning system that kids love.

Alvin Wang,
Bell Robot’s CEO

Mixing and matching the robotic modules lets kids create robots with different looks, uses and functions. The Mabot is also compatible with the popular Lego brand toys, putting a modern spin on a classic kid’s favorite and adding another dimension to creative building.

The Team behind Mabot is Bell Educational Group, a leader in robotic learning curriculum for kids. They developed Mabot in response to feedback from parents and teachers about the difficulty of getting kids interested in STEM learning. Mabot was created as a powerful learning tool for youngsters age six and up to engage kids in a totally new and fun way of learning robotics and programming.

Mabot is currently being launched via a Kickstarter campaign so they can reward early adopters with special deals and pricing.

Affordable Language Services Is a Goering Center Private Business Award Finalist

Company recognized as one of Cincinnati’s Most Distinguished Private Businesses, a finalist for the 18th Annual 2017 Goering Center Awards

Press Release

updated: Sep 21, 2017 09:44 CDT

AFFORDABLE LANGUAGE SERVICES is the recipient of the 2017 Goering Center Family & Private Business Finalist Award for Private Businesses with 26-100 employees. This annual honor is bestowed upon only two companies; this exemplifies what family and private business is and should be.

Affordable Language Services has been supporting the language service industry for over 18 years. In 2016, the company decided to take a step back and look at where they were and more importantly where they wanted to go. With 36 employees located in Blue Ash, Ohio and over 600 linguistic vendor partners worldwide, they decided that in order to achieve significant growth, they had to make strategic changes. They hired a General Manager, Director of Sales, Director of Operations as well as a Strategic Planning and a Marketing Consultant. In addition to leadership, the company has undergone a brand refresh with a new logo, color scheme, brand voice and defined differentiators. They have just completed a major website redesign to allow finding information and providing quotes easier for their customers. Affordable Language Services is excited about their accomplishments in 2017 and look forward to accelerated growth in the months to come.

“Affordable Language Services wants to thank the Goering Center for giving local businesses a chance to share their story and for honoring us as a finalist!” said CEO, Lynn Elfers.

This annual recognition program, in its 18th year, honors Cincinnati regional businesses that exemplify the best in family and private business practices.  Each year over 500 businesses apply for these awards. AFFORDABLE LANGUAGE SERVICES was evaluated by an independent panel of judges who reviewed applications as they relate to the Goering Center’s 10 Best Practices, business success and their positive impact on the community. 

After first being named one of only 75 Semi-Finalists, AFFORDABLE LANGUAGE SERVICES was then selected as a Finalist for Private Businesses with 26-100 employees. In addition, JTM Food Group was named to the Goering Center Hall of Fame and Mary Miller, JANCOA, was titled the 2017 Baldwin Award Winner for their dedication and service to the Goering Center.

AFFORDABLE LANGUAGE SERVICES is one of an estimated 4,500 family and private businesses in the Cincinnati region; the Goering Center has 340 of these businesses as active members with a goal of 400 members by the end of 2018. Membership is not a prerequisite for the awards or for nomination, as fewer than half of the semi-finalists are current Goering Center members.

The Goering Center, initiated in 1989, is the nation’s largest organization dedicated to family and private business. The Goering Center’s mission is to nurture and educate family and private businesses to drive a vibrant economy. The center is affiliated with the University of Cincinnati and the University of Cincinnati’s Carl H. Lindner College of Business.

Refreshed Brand Captures Company's Spirit

Press Release

updated: Sep 21, 2017 11:00 CDT

After more than 20 years of contact center services, Working Solutions is evolving the look and feel of its well-established brand, dedicated to great customer experiences.

“Our industry is ever-changing, especially over the last 14 years,” said Gail Rigler, chief marketing officer. “That means we move with it, refining our brand to match the times and the business we are now.”

Established in 1996, Working Solutions’ out-of-the-box logo has long represented this Texas company. Its agents from across North America worked remotely then as they do now. 21 years ago, however, on-demand workforces were novel. These days, they’re widely used and increasing worldwide.

As the logo and look evolve, Working Solutions’ core values and caring culture remain steadfast. ‘Why change what works?’ Rigler asked.

Consumer Expectations

“Given this, our brand needed to move away from ‘out of the box,’ or where agents sat to support clients,” Rigler said. “It had to reflect a mobile, modern mindset. That means more focus on what’s being done and how that work is accomplished.”

The complex nature of business, with multifaceted communications being used by clients and their customers, is manifested in the new logo. Interlocking chat bubbles represent converging forces and rising consumer expectations. They are accentuated by a vector, symbolizing communications moving forward.

Proven Business Model

The refreshed brand reaffirms the company’s proven, and often emulated, distributed workforce model. One that’s valued by clients, from A Place for Mom to Egencia to StubHub. It’s also validated by industry analysts, such as Gartner and Ovum, and remote-work expert FlexJobs.

As the logo and look evolve, Working Solutions’ core values and caring culture remain steadfast. “Why change what works?” Rigler asked.

“Ours is an enviable position. It’s evidenced by our industry staying power and sustained business performance. Both are anchored in a well-earned reputation for great service.”


With 20-plus years of success, Working Solutions is a recognized leader in on-demand contact center services. Its U.S.-based workforce includes sales, customer service and technical experts with 110,000-plus agents registered nationwide. They deliver scalable business process outsourcing (BPO) solutions for clients and their customers for diverse industries such as consumer, retail, travel and hospitality.

Scuderi Group, Inc. Receives Three New United States Patents That Will Have a Major Impact by Reducing Greenhouse Gases During the Production of Electricity and Manufacturing of Commodities.

Press Release

updated: Sep 21, 2017 12:00 EDT

Scuderi Group, Inc. of West Springfield, Massachusetts announced today the awarding of three (3) new United States patents by using clean energy for the power generation and commodity production industries. The methodology contained in the patents when used, will significantly reduce the amount of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) released into the atmosphere thus lowering greenhouse gas emissions.

Scuderi Group, Inc. of West Springfield, Massachusetts announces the awarding of three United States Patents that will be used in the alternative energy market for the production of electricity in a clean and highly-efficient manner. The patents methodology when applied will not only increase the overall efficiency of diesel, natural gas and coal-fired power plants up to 60 megawatts (MWs), but will also significantly reduce and lower the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) that is released into the atmosphere, thus lowering greenhouse gas emissions.

Born out of years of research at Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) in San Antonio, Texas, these three patents and their respective methodologies make use of thermodynamic principles for the Combined Heat & Power (CHP) industry, in the production of electricity for the grid utilizing clean energy and distributed power to strengthen the electric grid against natural disasters and cyber-attacks. While producing electricity for the grid, the methods contained in the patent portfolio will make use of close to 100% of the waste heat for the production of numerous commodities that require heat during the manufacturing process. By setting up a distributed power grid, many of the commodities produced utilizing the patents may actually be done through a smaller, more cost-effective distributed plan with zero environmental impact as well. The use or license of these patents will enhance and maintain the company’s growth in an ever-changing clean energy market.

We are also working with several large companies in the alternative energy and clean energy sectors that have indicated a willingness to license our technology and we along with them are reviewing these opportunities for joint endeavors at numerous locations in North America and Latin America. We’ve had a lot of interest in these patents from a variety of companies in the energy sector for distributed, dynamic micro-power grids and I expect over the next 12 to 18 months that we’ll see more opportunities with our technology as we begin to expand our sales efforts and as it proves itself out.

Sal Scuderi,
President of Scuderi Group, Inc.

The following patents are applicable for those who seek to carve out a competitive edge in the alternative energy market, renewable energy market and the Combined Heat & Power (CHP) market.

1) 20150322874 – POWER GENERATION SYSTEMS AND METHODS: Describes various methods of splitting generation output between the grid and a host customer load requirements. 

2) 20160314544 – METHOD OF PROVIDING ELECTRIC POWER TO A HOST:  Describes a business method of providing electric power and energy to a host both directly to the host and through the electric grid.

3) 62/341,029 – METHOD OF UTILIZING A COMBINED HEAT AND POWER SYSTEM TO PRODUCE ELECTRICITY FOR A WHOLESALE ELECTRICITY MARKET:  Describes a method to generate power to the grid while simultaneously producing a commodity from the systems waste heat.

Scuderi Group, Inc. has already issued a license for these patents to a clean energy company that is currently working in the growing alternative energy market.

MegaFon Launches Tarantool-Based Equipment and Connection Quality Control System

Press Release

updated: Sep 21, 2017 09:00 PDT

​​MegаFon launched a system that leverages the Tarantool database management system, in order to increase productivity for streaming data processing along with automated statistical data collection from a million base station sectors. Data collection for further storage and processing is performed in near real-time.

Several thousand metrics are collected from each sector of the base station: connectivity quality, number of connection faults, Internet connection speed, as well as other parameters that determine the technical integrity of the station. Tarantool was selected for the MegaFon project because this DBMS is capable of processing large amount of data both in memory and via magnetic disk-based storage systems. Other industrial-class DBMSs only support SSDs for this load level, and SSDs are approximately 8–10 times more expensive than magnetic disks.

The system will be used for analysis as well as automating network monitoring. Various scenarios have been worked out in order to increase connection quality and cut costs associated with operation of the telecom operator’s ground infrastructure. These scenarios include automated creation of applications for equipment configuration modification in case of insufficient capacity or deterioration of connection quality in specific locations, as well as predicting the best time for scheduling maintenance of the base station.

Dennis Anikin, General Manager of Tarantool said that, “Implementation of Tarantool in MegaFon was a long and meticulous process involving a large number of professionals on both sides. We’re happy that MegaFon saw the true value of our product. We’re now further strengthening our positions in conventional industries: telecommunications, banking, retail, as well as various industrial segments. The evolution of Tarantool allowed for the extensive spread of our solution, from data centers to Industrial IoT.” ​

“We always strive to provide the best connection quality for our customers, and that is why it is so important to have the tools for real time operations monitoring across our network. Tarantool’s performance enables us to speed up the input data stream processing as well as to create a real time decision making system — e. g. collecting statistical data from the ground facilities where millions of devices must be covered,” says Vladimir Savkin, MegaFon CIO.

ivWatch Enters Into Licensing and Distribution Agreement With Terumo to Help Improve Patient Safety

Terumo Corp., exclusive distributor for ivWatch in Japan, licenses ivWatch infiltration detection technology for use in products globally

Press Release

updated: Sep 21, 2017 11:00 EDT

ivWatch, LLC, the market leader for continuous IV infiltration and extravasation detection technology, today announced that Terumo Corporation, one of the world’s leading medical device manufacturers and distributors, is the exclusive distributor of the ivWatch Model 400 and the ivWatch OEM board in Japan, and is a global licensing partner for Terumo products containing the ivWatch OEM board.**

“We have partnered with ivWatch because they offer the most advanced technology to help minimize patient harm through the early detection of IV infiltration events,” said Tsuyoshi Tomita, group manager, General Hospital Products Group, General Hospital Company at Terumo Corporation. “We are confident that the ivWatch technology will help hospitals improve patient safety by reducing the harm caused by IV infiltration.”

IV therapy is the most common invasive hospital procedure worldwide. A recent study, conducted at a university hospital in Tokyo, Japan, found that catheters failed at a rate of 18.8 percent with 41.3 percent of those failures due to infiltration.[1] Every failure of an IV results in a drug delivery error and carries the potential for reduced drug efficacy and physical harm.

We have partnered with ivWatch because they offer the most advanced technology to help minimize patient harm through the early detection of IV infiltration events. We are confident that the ivWatch technology will help hospitals improve patient safety by reducing the harm caused by IV infiltration.

Tsuyoshi Tomita,
Group Manager, General Hospital Products Group, General Hospital Company at Terumo Corporation

“We are excited to partner with Terumo to help advance patient safety in Japan and on a global scale,” said Gary P. Warren, president and CEO of ivWatch, LLC. “Through the distribution of the ivWatch Model 400 and future integration of the ivWatch OEM board with Terumo products, Terumo will be able to help their customers deliver a higher level of patient care and reduced risks related to IV therapy. This partnership furthers our collective goal of ending the harm associated with IV infiltration and extravasation.”

IV infiltration and extravasation is a major problem as it can lead to serious medical complications and even amputation. The ivWatch Model 400 continuously monitors a patient’s peripheral IV for evidence of infiltrations and extravasations, which occur when medication or fluid leaks into the surrounding tissue. Early detection of those failures via ivWatch sensor technology helps to minimize injuries associated with this common complication of IV therapy.

ivWatch technology can be seamlessly integrated with patient monitoring systems, infusion pumps and other devices via the ivWatch OEM board. The agreement provides Terumo with exclusive rights to integrate ivWatch into existing and future Terumo products in Japan. In addition, Terumo can integrate ivWatch technology into products available globally.

About Terumo:

Tokyo-based Terumo Corporation is one of the world’s leading medical device manufacturers with over $5 billion in sales and operations in more than 160 nations. Founded in 1921, the company develops, manufactures and distributes world-class medical devices including products for use in cardiothoracic surgery, interventional procedures and transfusion medicine; the company also manufactures a broad array of syringe and hypodermic needle products for hospital and physician office use.
