Planbox Sponsors Research Report on Delivering Quick Wins

The research report polled 132 innovation and R&D leaders on their strategies and experiences on introducing new tools, streamlining processes, finding clever ways to cut costs and launching new offerings.
Press Release – updated: Feb 11, 2020 09:15 EST

MONTREAL, February 11, 2020 (Newswire.com) – Planbox, a pioneering cloud-based AI-powered agile innovation management platform, partnered with Innovation Leader, an independent media and events company focused on helping change-makers in large organizations, to develop a research report on “Quick Wins: Data and Case Studies on Delivering Results Fast.”
Complete with case studies about successful innovation initiatives from Mitsubishi, BNP Paribas, Duke Energy and Premera Blue Cross — to name a few — the research report polled 132 innovation and R&D leaders on their strategies and experiences on how to quickly deliver tangible business results, whether it’s introducing a new tool, streamlining a process, finding clever ways to cut costs, launching a new offering, or building a new capability in industries ranging from aerospace to utilities, to financial services and consumer products.
Innovation Leader defined quick wins as an initiative that delivers some kind of tangible outcome within a year. Nearly all of the 132 survey respondents said that their portfolio involves delivering near-term results; several other respondents defined quick as an even shorter time period, that is, three or four months.
The top key benefit of quick wins according to one respondent is their significance to innovation and R&D teams that want to show value, attract allies across the organization, and gain permission to place bigger bets.
“We’re pleased to partner with Innovation Leader to release this research report on ‘Quick Wins,’” said Arthur Liberian, Senior Planbox Innovation Management Expert. “We at Planbox observe first-hand the empowering nature of innovation wins, and even more so the value of capitalizing on the momentum they create by communicating our success with those who make them possible.”

ACI Solutions has proudly sponsored Cornerstones since 2017 as we understand how critical the Mission is to their community’s vitality. The 37th Annual Benefit raised a record amount of over $365,000 through the generous support of sponsors and donors.
Established in 1970 to address the need for affordable housing, Cornerstones has grown to become a significant human services provider and advocate for those struggling to make ends meet in northwestern Fairfax County and the Dulles corridor. In this otherwise wealthy and well-resourced region, the number of community residents coming to Cornerstones for one or more services continues to be alarmingly high. During Fiscal Year 2019 (FY19), Cornerstones served approximately 16,920 individuals, including 3,828 families and 6,569 children in northwestern Fairfax County who were experiencing homelessness, living in poverty or facing other needs.
ACI Solutions has a long history of dedicating time and resources to the local community, proudly serving as one of Reston VA’s leading small, minority-owned businesses. Nasra Abdi, ACI’s CEO, explains why Cornerstones is a perfect pairing with ACI: “Cornerstones’ mission of providing a helping hand to the needy aligns with our Team’s values and dedication to service”. Mrs. Abdi also notes that “As a community leader in Reston, it is important for ACI and all local businesses to give back into the community in which we reside.  The stability of our environment directly impacts the stability of our Team”. ACI is looking forward to 2020 being our most philanthropic giving year to date, ensuring we continue making a positive communal impact.

Sundyne Co-Sponsors the 2020 American LNG Forum, February 4-5 in Houston, TX

Sundyne pumps & compressors are a preferred choice by operators and EPCs in the LNG industry

Sundyne pumps and compressors have been deployed in the largest LNG plants in Texas and Louisiana, plus a number of other LNG facilities around the globe.

ARVADA, Colo. (PRWEB) January 27, 2020
Sundyne, a global leader in the design and manufacture of API compliant pumps and compressors, today announced that it is co-sponsoring the 2020 American LNG Forum, taking place February 4-5, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Kirby Drive in Houston, Texas.
Participants at the event represent a Who’s-Who for the major players in the LNG industry. The event’s sessions discuss everything from; industry demand in the US, Europe and Asia; to challenges (such as the need to boost efficiency); to innovations in production technology. The event also provides updates on the technical requirements and specifications for projects such as Alaska LNG, Corpus Christi, Driftwood LNG, Lake Charles LNG and more.
Sundyne is sponsoring the event to showcase how its pumps and compressors are used for a variety of gas processing applications, such as:
Amine gas treating – to remove hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide from natural gas.
Molecular sieve dehydration – Sundyne’s integrally geared centrifugal compressors are used to remove water from gas streams.
Cryogenic processing applications – Sundyne’s compressors are used in applications that cool natural gas to -170°F (-112°C) in order to condense and remove NGLs such as butane, ethane and propane.
Fractionation Applications – once NGLs are separated, they are transported via Sundyne pumps and sold as separate products.
“Sundyne pumps and compressors have been deployed in the largest US-based LNG plants in Texas and Louisiana – as well as a number of LNG facilities throughout Australia. We’re also providing pumps and compressors to the Arctic LNG projects in Siberia,” said Sundyne’s Direct Sales/Professional Engineer Jason Fouraker. “All of the major EPCs and large LNG plant operators will be in attendance at the American LNG Forum next week, and we’re looking forward to speaking with many of them to learn more about their challenges and to discuss how Sundyne’s technology can address those challenges.”
Sundyne pumps and compressors are a preferred choice by operators and EPCs for a variety of reasons:
Sundyne sealless pumps are designed from the frame up to meet stringent API guidelines. They eliminate unwanted emissions and protect plant personnel and the environment. Sundyne’s modular design philosophy allows for streamlined preventative maintenance, which maximizes uptime and keeps the midstream chain operating seamlessly.
Sundyne integrally geared centrifugal compressors meet all API specifications and are designed to provide pulsation- and vibration-free operation for up to 5 years of continuous service with no emissions. Sundyne compressors are ideal for skid packaging due to their unique modular baseplate, which is easy to install into any process environment.
Sundyne offers the fastest delivery times in the industry. Every product shipped is supported with a full range of aftermarket services – which are provided by an extensive network of partners that deliver local support to gas plants anywhere around the globe.

Enso Discoveries, LLC Sponsors Study with Tom Schwartz, DVM of St. Peters, Missouri, Cracking the Code on Canine Pain Management and Surgical Recovery with Rebound™ PRP

Dr. Schwartz found that full range of motion was established within two weeks of CCL surgery using Rebound PRP by Enso Discoveries

“Patients had returned to full function much faster than was my experience with the same procedure prior to using Enso Discoveries Rebound PRP,” exclaimed Dr. Schwartz.

MANHATTAN, Kan. (PRWEB) January 17, 2020
Enso Discoveries, LLC is proud to recognize Tom Schwartz, DVM, owner of Harvester Animal Clinic in St. Peters, Missouri for his recent and remarkable results when utilizing the new Enso Discoveries Rebound™ PRP kit (patent-pending) in 10 canine cranial cruciate surgeries. Observed benefits of adding Rebound PRP include decreased pain, reduced pain medications, improved range of motion and faster return to activity.
“Any pet’s injury can be scary for an owner, especially when your pet is facing surgery,” said Trey Pittman, VP of Sales for Enso Discoveries, “Veterinarians can now offer a low-cost procedure adjunct to surgery that can improve the overall outcome of your pet’s recovery.”
Dr. Schwartz, formerly Hospital Director of the Veterinary Health Center Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine, was able to achieve these astounding outcomes recently with nine canine patients (10 knees total) suffering from cranial cruciate injuries and facing surgery. All 10 procedures had similar positive results, suggesting Rebound PRP is a must-have added assurance to this type of surgery.
Results included but were not limited to:1. All 10 incisions healing without incident. No infection occurred in any patient.2. Virtually full-range of motion was established within two weeks of surgery.3. Nearly all patients were bearing some weight on the limb at the first recheck which occurred most commonly one week postoperatively. Several patients were using the limb regularly at their first recheck.4. No clients requested additional pain medications due to uncontrolled pain.5. No clients reported an inability to perform physical therapy because of pain.
“Patients had returned to full function much faster than was my experience with the same procedure prior to using Enso Discoveries Rebound PRP,” exclaimed Dr. Schwartz. “Pain appeared to be well controlled allowing owners to perform physical therapy on patients with minimal issues. Pets were able to return to slow walks just two weeks after the procedure, with several patients beginning to run on their own within 30 days of the procedure and requiring a leash for restraint. By simply closing the surgery with Rebound PRP, my patients experienced significantly less postoperative pain.”
Rebound PRP is a medical device that utilizes the patient’s own blood to make a growth-factor-rich, therapeutic injection. Rebound PRP can be used for acute and chronic conditions, as an adjunct to surgery, or as a stand-alone procedure. Because Rebound PRP is derived from the patient’s own healing cells, there is no risk of rejection and very often patients do not require retreatment.

Catalent Launches New CTSuccess™ Service to Guide Sponsors to Smarter Clinical Trial Supply Planning

The aim of CTSuccess is to use the experience we have as a company in supplying materials for thousands of trials to identify the characteristics of a project upfront and highlight potential risk factors that may arise.

SOMERSET, N.J. (PRWEB) December 12, 2019
Catalent, a global leader in clinical supply services, today announced the launch of its new CTSuccess™ clinical trial planning service, designed to support trial sponsors with earlier, more proactive and robust clinical supply chain planning, and reduce the risk of delays and budget overspend common to clinical trials as they progress.

The StartScore model was developed by the company’s in-house supply chain experts based on actual performance data. The risk-based score generated by the tool helps sponsors gain advance understanding of the appropriate level of clinical supply management oversight needed to help get their project started on time and maintain momentum as the study progresses.
“No two studies are the same, and each carries its own unique risks and presents individual challenges, but the aim of CTSuccess is to use the experience we have as a company in supplying materials for thousands of trials to identify the characteristics of a project upfront and highlight potential risk factors that may arise,” commented Kristen Devito, Global Director, Catalent Clinical Supply Services. “Once these risks have been identified then a project team can be put together combining the necessary expertise to provide the integrated services and tailored support to ensure continuity of supply from beginning to end.”
Catalent’s clinical supply network includes nine cGMP-certified clinical packaging facilities across North America, Europe and Asia, and more than 50 strategically-located depots around the world, providing local and regional options for clinical storage, distribution, expiry update and relabeling services, and clinical returns management.
