Vantagepoint AI Predictive Accuracy Increases to 87.4%

Vantagepoint AI software now up to 87.4% accuracy — VERIFIED!

Our traders have a broad vista to make unemotional, data-driven choices about when to get in and when to get out of a trade – and that means they can profit more. Our goal is for traders to have the tools to find financial freedom! – Lane Mendelsohn, President Vantagepoint AI LLC

WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. (PRWEB) February 10, 2020
In 1979, Louis B. Mendelsohn launched what would become VantagePoint AI software (http://www.vantagepointsoftware.com), the first software in the world to give independent traders the power of AI on a home computer. Forty years on, our neural networks continue to learn and are increasingly accurate.
VantagePoint Trading Software’s predictive forecasts have crossed the threshold to now reach up to 87.4% accuracy.
Lane Mendelsohn, President of Vantagepoint explains, “VantagePoint’s high-probability forecasts of market trend direction helps traders anticipate changes in price direction, rather than merely identifying trends after the fact. Rather than lagging data and an isolated view of an asset, traders now have the massive computing power of artificial intelligence to help them see a big picture of what is driving price and what other markets are influencing movement.
So, instead of driving their trades with only a rear-view mirror and a tiny window of visibility, Vantagepoint traders have a broad vista to make unemotional, data-driven choices about when to get in and when to get out of a trade – and that means they can profit more. Our goal is for all of our traders to have the tools to help them find financial freedom!”
Combined with its patented Intermarket Analysis which compiles and analyzes data about the interconnectedness of global markets, VantagePoint’s predictive forecasts continue to be the world leader in predictive technical analysis for independent traders. That accuracy is verified by several independent third-party sources who are PhDs who also trade in the markets.
All markets forecasted by Vantagepoint have a minimum of a 70% accuracy rate in order to be included in VantagePoint software. Traders can have a high degree of trust in the market forecasts provided by Vantagepoint AI and as the machine learning continues, that trust will only deepen.

Rapid Insight Presents Webinar on Predictive Analytics for Enrollment Management with Arkansas State’s Dr. Bryan Terry

Dr. Bryan Terry, Vice Chancellor of Enrollment Management, Arkansas State University

We’re excited to host this conversation exploring the crucial intersection of predictive analytics and enrollment.

CONWAY, N.H. (PRWEB) January 14, 2020
Rapid Insight, Inc., a leading provider of easy-to-use predictive analytics and data blending software for higher education, will host a webinar discussing the challenges of higher-ed enrollment with Arkansas State University’s (ASU) Vice Chancellor of Enrollment Management, Dr. Bryan Terry, on Thursday, January 16, 2 PM EST (11 AM PST).
Over nearly three decades in higher education, Dr. Terry has established himself as a leading voice for the importance of a data-driven, student-focused approach to enrollment management—and his results demonstrate that leadership.
Prior to joining ASU, as vice chancellor for enrollment management at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG), Dr. Terry successfully reversed a four-year downtrend in enrollment. And by the fall of 2018, UNCG enrolled a record 20,106 students—the first time the university surpassed 20K in its history. That year also included its largest ever freshman class of nearly 3,000 students.
“As thrilled as Arkansas State must be to have Dr. Terry leading its enrollment strategy,” says James Cousins, analyst manager at Rapid Insight, “we’re even more excited to host this conversation exploring the crucial intersection of predictive analytics and enrollment—and how Dr. Terry’s experience can inform and empower others.”
The topic is timely and urgent. Universities nationwide are seeing steady declines in enrollment, which can be attributed to shrinking pools of applicants, cuts in public funding, and increasing competition for those fewer students.
In the January 16 webinar, Cousins and Dr. Terry will emphasize the significance of data to enrollment management and will share actionable strategies for leveraging data to impact decision-making.
To learn more about this webinar and to register, visit Rapid Insight’s website.
About Rapid Insight:Rapid Insight Inc. is a leading provider of business intelligence and automated predictive analytics software. With a focus on ease of use and efficiency, Rapid Insight products enable users to turn their raw data into actionable information. The company’s analytic software simplifies the extraction and analysis of data, enabling clients ranging from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies to fully utilize their information for data-driven decision making.

ClubReady and iKizmet Bring a Predictive Approach to Fitness Studio Growth

Press Release – updated: Nov 26, 2019 14:00 CST

ST. LOUIS, November 26, 2019 (Newswire.com) – ClubReady and iKizmet are excited to announce a new partnership to bring a predictive approach to fitness studio growth.
Fitness studios collect data from hundreds of members and prospective members, across multiple channels, over several years, representing thousands of transactions. Studio owners work to derive insights from that data and then draw on those insights to shape business decisions and, ultimately, improve business performance. But many owners struggle to consolidate all of this information into a report that actually means something and that can be used going forward.
Partnering with iKizmet, ClubReady customers can now easily develop dashboards that visually demonstrate performance against revenue, recruitment, and member acquisition KPIs. Additionally, owners can easily analyze member utilization and spend behavior.
“We love ClubReady and iKizmet integration” says Joe Demarco, owner of several CycleBar studios in New York. “It’s great to have visibility into our studios and we are really seeing the impact it has on our areas of focus.”
With the data easily accessible on a mobile device, and reporting pushed via email sends, ClubReady customers can begin to pivot their business in real-time by adjusting marketing strategy, staffing, and class scheduling. Studio owners can own their data, access performance KPIs from anywhere, and respond to their business at all times.
“iKizmet is the equivalent of a FitBit for your business,” explains Founder, Andres Moran. “Setting goals, tracking your progress, and making your business healthier has never been so easy.”
The ClubReady and iKizmet partnership is allowing studios to more accurately goal-set and forecast their business performance. ClubReady customers can analyze their revenue but they can now also factor in conversion and churn metrics in order to establish the KPIs needed throughout the entire member relationship lifecycle.
“Simply put, iKizmet connects you to your data. IKizmet is a data visualization and analytics platform, which connects your ClubReady data to provide real-time, actionable, synced information,” says ClubReady’s Vice President of Business Development, Fred Elias. “Their numerous dashboards provided the insight necessary for your studio to improve member acquisition and retention, revenue growth and marketing ROI.”
On Dec. 12, ClubReady will host a webinar with iKizmet to discuss the changing landscape in fitness studio analytics. Additional details and registration can be found here.
