The differences between software and telematics

August 28th, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

Dedicated fleet managers are a thinning crowd and the task of running a company’s vehicles is falling at the doorstep of HR or finance departments, and anyone else deemed fit to pick up the slack.

That’s led to a bit of confusion over some of the more technical aspects of looking after a fleet, to the point where software specialists and telematics providers have reported that some fleets don’t know the difference between the two, nor do they really know what they need for the task in hand.

“Commercial fleets are much more aware,” says Giles Margerison, sales director of TomTom Telematics. “Truck fleets certainly and van fleets are usually good, but it’s absolutely the case with cars. The industry awareness is quite different. People often don’t see themselves as fleet managers – it’s just something they need to get their head around.”

The mix-up is partly due to a rise in the amount of telematics companies and doesn’t just apply to smaller, lesser-manned fleets, as Ashley Sowerby, managing director of fleet management software specialist Chevin, explains: “We were advertising with Google keywords and suddenly the price went up because we were going head-to-head with telematics products, so there’s definitely some confusion out there.

“It’s across the marketplace – it’s not just small fleets or part-time administrators, so we have to have to be careful as to the language we employ.”

Here, BusinessCar explains the fundamental difference between fleet management software and telematics to dispel the myths about what’s what.


Louisville Software Firm Releases New Restaurant Reservations Option

August 28th, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

A Louisville software development firm, QSR Automations, has just released new online restaurant reservations and email marketing features in its DineTime Host version 3.0 restaurant management software product.

DineTime Host, which runs on an iPad and is designed for both smaller, independent restaurants and larger ones, helps restaurants perform all their management functions, including guest book, marketing and analytics.

This May, QSR Automations made Louisville its pilot test market for its DineTime app, available in iTunes and the Android store, to let diners search hundreds of Louisville restaurants, put themselves on a wait list, and receive a confirmation text back from the restaurant.

The new features in DineTime Host now let restaurants that are using the management software add a widget to their website to facilitate online reservations for patrons.

QSR Automations’ President and CEO, Lee Leet, said in the company’s release, “DineTime now streamlines guest management and online reservations in one app. We knew restaurants wanted an alternative to what’s out there now—and they want one they can trust.”

Helping restaurants grow their businesses is QSR’s goal with each DineTime release: Benefits of the online reservation addition include keeping phone lines open and staff free to interact directly with customers. Customers can invite more friends to join them while they make their reservation, too.

Leet also said of the other major new feature, “DineTime now gives restaurateurs another way to stay in front of their guests with the marketing campaign feature. Increasing guest communication and building loyalty is another way DineTime is helping restaurants bring in more business.” With email marketing, restaurants can promote events, new menu items, deals and anything else directly to their customers.


Neurosurgeons and software engineers team up to fight brain cancer

August 28th, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

A team of young Russian neurosurgeons and IT developers has created new software that helps to visualize and measure residual brain tumors as well as to monitor their dynamics. Brain Target can also help to prevent brain hemorrhages in treating arteriovenous malformations, a congenital vascular anomaly. “When I graduated from medical school, I got the idea of creating something that would allow doctors to make objective decisions in risky situations that might threaten a patient’s life and health,” says Gleb Sergeyev, a neurosurgeon and the author of Brain Target’s algorithm. A targeted strike against cancer Surgery does not always help a patient to get rid of the tumor. Even if the operation goes well, it is still necessary to monitor any changes in the brain. A tumor cannot always be fully removed because surgery might affect the functionality of significant parts of the brain. In order to eradicate any remnants of the tumor a patient receives chemotherapy.

Traditionally in Russia, the degree to which a tumor has been removed is assessed “approximately,” based on the strength of the surgeon’s experience and on a post-surgery MRI scan. However, such an assessment is subjective. It is sometimes very difficult to make out the remnants of a tumor, as blood, hemostatic agents and tumor fragments all have more or less the same color on an MRI scan. Brain Target software has the potential to help in solving this problem. The program simultaneously processes different MRI images, which produces a combined version that is then examined by a neurosurgeon. In Brain Target, all of the above-mentioned elements have distinct and different colors. The software can be of use in the treatment of not only cancerous brain tumors, but also with vascular pathologies. For example, during an arteriovenous malformation embolization, the program can assess to what degree it is excluded from blood circulation in order to prevent a hemorrhage. Brain Target identifies the danger zones The software has been tested at the neurosurgery division of the E.N. Meshalkin Research Institute of Blood Circulation Pathology in Novosibirsk. “We checked patients immediately after surgery and identified areas where tumors could re-emerge in the future,” says Brain Target’s Sergeyev. “After six months or a year, we checked them once again. Practice has shown that Brain Target clearly identified dangerous zones.” Positive feedback on the program has already been received from another Novosibirsk clinic and from the medical center at the Far Eastern Federal University. The results are promising, but to ensure that this software is introduced at every clinic, a multi-purpose study is needed as required by Russian legislation. The program must be used to analyze the MRI scans of approximately 1000 patients accompanied by a random clinical study. Only then will the project team be able to register the software and begin distributing it. Brain Target aims to distribute first in Russia and then worldwide. Bringing the cost of cancer treatments down Only around 50,000 brain tumor surgeries are performed in Russia every year. In China 350,000 surgeries are performed annually, while in the USA the number is about 100,000 and 25,000 in Canada. There is a reason for the limited use of the procedure in Russia.

In Russia neurosurgeons operate on patients according to a federal quota. Some operations are paid for privately, although few patients can afford them. For example, in Moscow, such a surgery can cost from 900,000 to 4.5 million rubles (approximately $25,000 to $125,000). For most Russians, this is far from affordable. A significantly higher number of cancer patients are in need of help and might benefit from this new software. The Brain Target team is currently looking for funding to finalize the software component and to transform the prototype into a final version of the product. They are seeking 5 million rubles (approximately $139,000). The program has already been used to study roughly 50 patients. In all of those cases, Brain Target successfully identified the remnants of cancerous tumors. It has 100-percent sensitivity and hemostatic agent specificity and shows a very high potential for consistent results.
