First Pure Google Apps Cloud Solution for Ambulance Unit Released

Netkiller worked with the Forest Hills Volunteer Ambulance Corps (FHVAC) to design and develop a cloud solution for storing and dispatching ambulance response in a timely and efficient manner.

San Jose, CA, Friday – September 30, 2011 — What has Netkiller been up to these past few weeks? Developing the first ever pure Google Apps cloud solution for an Ambulance Unit. Netkiller worked with the Forest Hills Volunteer Ambulance Corps (FHVAC) to design and develop a cloud solution for storing and dispatching ambulance response in a timely and efficient manner. NICER was presented last week at Pulse Check, an annual volunteer ambulance conference.

NICER is built entirely on the Google Cloud platform, providing for secure connections and 99.9% up time guaranteed. Because NICER is built purely on this platform, it runs within your Google Apps for Education accounts without 3rd party applications. Google Apps for Education is a free suite of hosted email and collaboration applications for non-profit organizations.

So what exactly is NICER and how does it work? NICER is a case management system designed specifically for ambulance units. NICER uses 4 categories of information to effectively and efficiently store data: Hotline Call, Dispatch Information, Notification, and Crew. Throughout the emergency response all of these activities are logged and instantly entered into and accessible from the program database.

For example, If an emergency call is received, the dispatcher enters the data into the NICER Hotline Call section. Next, the dispatcher notifies an available ambulance/crew and enters the assignment into the Dispatch Information and Crew sections. Finally, as the ambulance notifies the dispatcher of response status, the dispatcher enters these updates into the Notification section.

Alan Wolfe, the President of Forest Hills Volunteer Ambulance Corps, remarked, “Netkiller was able to design exactly what we needed to track our ambulance response. NICER is an easy, convenient and efficient tool that we can afford.”

Key Features of NICER:
– Simple, fast, and effective cloud solution
– Store information regarding emergency calls, dispatch, and updates
– Accessible from any computer with Internet by multiple users
– Search database at any time
– Customizable and expandable based on the needs

eGestalt Named a 2011 CRN Emerging Technology Vendor

Channel stands to reap big rewards by using SecureGRC to attract federal meaningful use dollars.

Santa Clara, CA, Wednesday – September 28, 2011 — eGestalt Technologies ( ), a leading provider of cloud-based, SaaS-delivered, security and information technology governance, risk management and compliance solutions for SMBs to enterprises,today announced it has been selected by Everything Channel as a 2011 CRN Emerging Technology Vendor. The annual list features the most innovative vendors who not only deliver technology that is easy to use, but can generate the high margins solution providers require.

Channel partners need no more incentive than the $40,000 in ‘meaningful use’ government funds being granted to individual doctor’s offices that install electronic medical records (EMR) that are fully in compliance with HIPAA/HITECH privacy and security rules.

“Large hospitals are eligible for up to $2 million in federal grants,” said eGestalt President Anupam Sahai. “Not only must every physician practice abide by HIPAA rules, but all their business associatestoo must fall in compliance. There are a few million BAs who need to be serviced. So from one hub comes many spokes of potential business for partners jumping on board with SecureGRC.”

Built from the ground up for channel partners, SecureGRC is a cloud-based, SaaS-delivered, $750 per year security and risk assessment, auditing and remediation application. The tool offers peace of mind to channel partners servicing SMBs to large enterprises, including medical providers and their business associates, retailers and merchants that must meet PCI and HIPAA/HITECH requirements.

With version 11 recently released, SecureGRC consolidates all security and compliance-related evidence into a single and centralized repository.It comes stacked with pre-packaged content such as policies that are continuously updated, a trove of best practices, and plenty of assessment questions that make it an easy step-by-step process to run the assessment and prove compliance.

Thanks to the fine print in HIPAA/HITECH legislation, MSPs have a tremendous gold mine of an opportunity to reap big rewards, revenues, and bundling opportunities. The cost of doing a security assessment and PCI compliance can run $100,000 and above.

“Using SecureGRC’saward-winning,patent pending technology, delivered through channel partners, our customers are able to become compliant at 1/10 the cost with very little maintenance.This promises to be a huge boon for the channel,” addedSahai. “And you don’t need to be conversant with the fine print of these PCI and HIPAA/HITECH regulations.”

SecureGRC also offers an automated PCI-DSS compliance management solution that helps meet PCI-DSS requirements in terms ofbuilding and maintaining a secure network; protecting card holder data; maintaining a vulnerability management program; implementing strong access control measures; regularly monitoring and testing networks, and maintaining robust IT security policies. For more information visit:

Channel partners authorized by eGestalt can become Managed Compliance Providers (MCPs), a channel program based around a proprietary “cookbook” that explains in step-by-step fashion on how to get started with delivering managed compliance services through creation of collateral, training, implementation, delivery and on-going playbooks as the business is up and running.

The Federal government has set aside $20 billion for upgrading the healthcare IT infrastructure by the year 2014 – spelling a huge upside for the channel. Service providers can pursue federal ‘meaningful use’ dollars to the tune of $40,000 per qualified physician practice. SecureGRC generates the necessary reports for proving compliance.

“By law, all business associates and sub-contractors affiliated with the given medical practice must follow HIPAA/HITECH compliance rules or face stiff penalties. It could not be more convincing a sale. Like spokes from a wheel, from one customer hub derives multiple new clients to service,” said Jim Hare, eGestaltVice President of Sales.

eGestalt is looking for qualified channel partners who want to help their clients solve and automate the complexities and high costs associated with maintaining and enforcing security and compliance around PCI, SOX, HIPAA/HITECH, ISO, GLBA and other mandatory government and industry regulations that affect most business operations.

The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2005 or later, have revenue under $1 billion and have an active U.S. channel strategy. Final selection to the Emerging Technology Vendor list was made by the CRN editorial team after a review of submitted information.

Uncommon Sense Story Motivates Readers to Change Their Lives

Turner offers a look at what we need to do to truly change our lives and how to accomplish our goals. He now shares these lessons and strategies he learned creating a multi-million dollar professional development company that teaches other businesses how to achieve corporate growth.

Valley View, OH, Wednesday – September 28, 2011 — “If you’re not growing, you’re going.”

This is the mantra of Darryl Turner, author of Uncommon $ense, a story about the human struggle with change. Turner said his main character, “Charlie,” is on the brink of failure, but instead becomes successful when he accepts the mentoring of a younger co-worker. The author, an international motivational speaker, sales trainer, and CEO of The Darryl Turner Corporation, said the book was “inspired by the thousands of Charlies my team and I have had the privilege to help over the last two decades.”

“My book is on how we struggle to deal with and process change. It’s a confidential personal struggle,” Turner said. “The topic for the book comes from personal experience,” he said.

“I wrote about what I know and what I help people overcome everyday.”

Turner offers a look at what we need to do to truly change our lives and how to accomplish our goals. He now shares these lessons and strategies he learned creating a multi-million dollar professional development company that teaches other businesses how to achieve corporate growth.

“The goal is to inspire people emotionally to take steps they would not normally take,” Turner said. “Adapting to a model not of your own is tough.” Uncommon $ense is about what people go through, Turner explained. “It’s a 100 percent real life accurate story. People can relate to the characters.” And when they have finished Uncommon $ense, the author said, readers will have a “significant call to action.”

“Don’t settle for common sense and average results,” Turner said, “set your sights much higher. Set them toward acquiring Uncommon $ense.”

Turner said he gained inspiration to write the book from his Christian faith and pastor Glen Berteau, who penned the forward for Uncommon $ense. The author and his wife of 29 years, Darlene, have four children ages 26, 20, 18 and 5. He has published numerous business related articles.

SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller by Mods4cars for VW Golf VI Cabriolet

Effective immediately the after market convertible top controller offered by Mods4cars is available for the recently introduced Volkswagen Golf VI Cabriolet. It allows opening and closing of the convertible top with one-touch convenience – also while driving at slow speeds. Additionally the top can be operated remotely via the original factory key fob.

Las Vegas, NV, Wednesday – September 28, 2011 — The SmartTOP convertible top kit offered by after market automotive specialist Mods4cars for the new Volkswagen Golf VI Cabriolet is available for purchase effective immediately. Now owners of this modern day Volkswagen get to enjoy the benefits of added comfort and convenience features. The kit enables use of the top at speed of up to 60 km/h (~35mph) and adds one-touch operation, so there is no more need to hold down the switch. The positive effect: The top is used more often, the driver gets to enjoy more top-down time.

“We are excited to have our module ready and selling so quickly after Volkswagen just introduced the new Golf VI Cabriolet to the market.” says PR manager Sven Tornow. He also points out the great convenience of being able to open and close the top from the original factory key fob without the need to reprogram the existing key fobs.

The SmartTOP convertible top add-on module for the Golf VI Cabriolet offers additional individually programmable features such as inverting the top switch direction. Now it is possible for each driver to choose which direction is more intuitive for them. Push to open and pull to close and vice versa.

Additionally the windows can be operated by remote, separately from the top. A chirp feature can be activated to give a quick “chirp” of the horn when locking or unlocking the car and each owner can decide if an ongoing operation should continue if the ignition is turned off or the engine is started while the top is in motion. If needed, the entire module can be temporarily switched off while retaining all individual user preferences and thanks to the plug-and-play wiring it is possible to revert back to factory condition within minutes without leaving traces.

The custom designed plug-and-play wiring adapter allows for straight forward installation of the SmartTOP module by simply plugging it in between two connectors. A standard USB connector on the module gives end users the ability to configure the product with a couple of mouse clicks as well as installing firmware updates (available free of charge for the life of the product).

SmartTOP convertible top kits are available for: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Mazda, Mercedes, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and Volkswagen.

The kit for Volkswagen Golf VI Cabriolet is available now for 249.00 Euros + tax.

A demonstration of the product can be found here:

About Mods4cars:
Mods4cars was founded in 2002 with the idea to add a highly demanded feature to the otherwise almost perfect Porsche Boxster: Comfort One-Touch roof operation while driving at slow speeds. The resulting product offered not only that, but also allowed quick and easy installation by just swapping out a relay box, thus leaving no traces and no permanent changes on the vehicle. The first SmartTOP roof controller was born.

The success of their first products in Germany and Europe prompted them in late 2004 to move operations to the USA, to be able to serve the American market as well as all other English speaking countries such as Australia, UK and South Africa from one central location. Their business has grown to a full-fledged international corporation with an office in Las Vegas and a full line of innovative products as well as distributors and installation partners all over the globe.

Being highly specialized in the development and distribution of aftermarket roof- and comfort controllers since 2002 allows them to offer an unsurpassed level of competence and product quality. Their main goal is optimization of each individual product to a maximum in compatibility, usability and intuitive operation. They put greatest effort into development and quality checks of all their products to achieve this goal and meet all expectations of their customers.

The extraordinary success of their products is also based on the great communication with their customers, which usually already starts for each new product during the development and prototyping phase.
