Adrich integrates with Amazon smart reorders to expand benefits to consumers


Amazon Smart Replenishment

Amazon Smart Replenishment

Adrich Connected Ecommerce

CPG brands can now offer timely, smart replenishment of consumable goods on Amazon based on real-time usage data while engaging directly with consumers

Brand survival depends on real-time consumer engagement and predictive consumption analytics. Our partnership with Amazon will allow brands to take their e-commerce to the next level.”

— Adhithi Aji, CEO, and founder of Adrich

PITTSBURGH, PA, USA, May 18, 2021 / — Adrich, a leader in IoT and AI-powered consumer engagement and predictive analytics, today announced that Amazon smart reorders now integrates with Adrich’s Smart Consumer Platform™, which includes plug-and-play smart labels and software. The platform provides an easy way for consumer packaged goods companies to quickly transform consumables products into smart, connected products. Benefits to CPGs are a significant reduction in time to market – counted in days instead of years – as well as access to real-time consumer behavior data to enable need-based replenishment.

Amazon smart reorders enable a connected device to automatically reorder products from Amazon. Now with the help of Adrich’s technology, any consumables manufacturer can convert their existing or new products into a connected product taking advantage of this service, an option previously available mostly to consumer electronics or powered devices. Brands will be able to capture real-time data on when a product is running low and automatically re-order or send ‘low supply’ notifications to a consumer’s mobile device.

For consumers, this means they will get the product exactly when they need it, never having to worry about running out of the product or having too much of it – a common problem with the existing, calendar-based subscription services, where consumers pre-select the delivery quantity and frequency. The key to winning consumer loyalty in the hyper-competitive post-Covid e-commerce world is to provide personalized, just-in-time convenience that caters to the instant gratification of increasingly sophisticated consumers. Further, the integrated offering will enable more predictable and accurate inventory management and demand planning for CPGs and Amazon, helping to lower the logistics cost of e-commerce.

“Brand survival depends on real-time consumer engagement and predictive consumption analytics,” said Adhithi Aji, CEO, and founder of Adrich, “We are excited that our partnership with Amazon will bring more opportunities for brands to leverage our technology and take their e-commerce to the next level. Armed with true product usage data and the ability to communicate directly with consumers, CPGs will be able to stay ahead of changing consumer needs with more timely, relevant offerings and a more agile supply chain.”

Another catalyst behind the rise of smart replenishment has been the CPG industry’s desire to make its sustainability efforts more attractive to consumers with increased convenience in order to drive adoption. As recently noted by Virginie Helias, Chief Sustainability Officer at P&G, “You need to make it irresistible so people embrace it because they want to, not because they have to.”

Amazon smart reorders are available immediately with Adrich’s Smart Consumer Platform™ Amazon integration. Consumers can also take advantage of Amazon smart reorders by linking the brand’s app powered by Adrich with Alexa, and enable auto-reorders of essential supplies. Alternatively, they can receive notifications when it’s time to replenish and use voice commands to easily reorder those products from Amazon. Consumers looking for more information on the Amazon smart reorder program can visit here. Brands looking to elevate their e-commerce through real-time consumption insights and consumer engagement can learn more at

About Adrich
Adrich, Inc. is a platform that helps brands and retailers understand and act on consumer product consumption habits through real-time insights by leveraging IoT and AI technologies. Through the world’s first patented Smart Consumer Platform™, Adrich’s customers can access a wide range of usage data on how their consumers interact with their product and leverage the insights to provide personalized consumer experiences such as “in-the-moment” communication and need-based auto-replenishment.

myKaarma TextDirect Enables Auto Dealer Service Departments to Capture Additional 50-100 Customer Interactions Monthly

TextDirect users can now capture text messages from customers even when sent to the landline

Our research shows that 150 million texts are mistakenly sent to landlines every day, which of course go unread and unanswered. Your dealership can’t afford to miss any lead or customer interaction,”

— Ujj Nath, myKaarma Chairman, and CEO.

LONG BEACH, CA, UNITED STATES, May 18, 2021 / — myKaarma, a customer interaction management software solution for automotive dealer service departments, today announced the launch of TextDirect. The tool allows auto dealer service departments to receive all text messages sent to the dealership, even if to the landline. It enables dealerships to capture an additional 50-100 customer interactions per month.

“Our research shows that 150 million texts are mistakenly sent to landlines every day, which of course go unread and unanswered. Your dealership can’t afford to miss any possible lead or customer interaction. The myKaarma app enables your landlines to receive text messages and empowers your employees to respond directly through the app,” stated Ujj Nath, myKaarma Chairman, and CEO.

TextDirect offers dealerships the following benefits:

• It provides the dealership with more channels for customer interaction. Advisors can capture customer texts using the dealership number listed on their business cards.
• No new numbers are needed as myKaarma enables existing dealer-owned landlines to receive text messages in the myKaarma app
• Dealers using the tool are capturing an additional 50-100 customer interactions per month

“We developed TextDirect so our dealers can interact via their customers’ preferred method of communication. 69% of customers now prefer to start a conversation with a text. 75% of customers don’t leave a voicemail, and the average lost RO revenue from a missed service text is $250. It is a vital tool that allows you to capture potential lost opportunities and boost your service revenue,” said Nath.

TextDirect can be fully integrated with myKaarma’s software suite which runs on mobile phones, desktops, and tablet computers. The platform includes ServiceCart™ Video MPI, pickup and delivery, video walkarounds, driver tracking, and a suite of mobile solutions, along with the communications and payment features. It is all seamlessly integrated and synced with the DMS and can help provide a touchless service environment.

CLS Holdings USA, Inc. Production Division Sees Category Performance Growth, Increasing Output & Brand Footprint

City Trees ‘live resin dabbable concentrate’ retail performance Q1 2021

City Trees vape product retail sales category mix Q1 2021

CLS Holdings USA, Inc. (OTCQB:CLSH)

LAS VEGAS, NV, UNITED STATES, May 18, 2021 / — CLS Holdings USA, Inc. (OTCQB: CLSH) (CSE: CLSH), the ''Company'' or ''CLS'', a diversified cannabis company operating as Cannabis Life Sciences, today announced updated category performance metrics for its manufacturing division, City Trees, along with details of its growing production capacity. In recently reported data from BDS Analytics, the brand’s cannabis vape and concentrate products saw substantial year-over-year growth in both dollar and unit sales for the first quarter of 2021.

The most recent data published by BDS Analytics, a leading provider of retail metrics for the cannabis industry, shows that City Trees vape products maintained the #7 highest selling vape brand in Nevada by dollars sold, and #6 by units sold in the first quarter of 2021. While overall ranking remained similar year-over-year for this period, retail sales of City Trees vape products increased by 48.25% with a 136% increase in the number of units sold. City Trees is the first company listed among best-selling vape brands to operate exclusively in the state of Nevada for the reporting period.

The brand has also significantly grown its market share in the “dabbable concentrates” category. City Trees has primarily focused on producing high quality live resin products, and has seen the most substantial growth in this subcategory, rapidly rising to become the #10 best selling live resin concentrate brand in Nevada for the first quarter of 2021, driven by an 895% increase in retail dollars sold year-over-year. The brand maintained its position as the #1 selling tincture producer statewide.

These advances in category performance, driven by consumer demand, have led to substantial increases in production at the Company’s extraction and conversion facility in North Las Vegas. When extraction began in earnest at the facility in April 2020, approximately 18,000 grams of THC distillate were produced monthly for third party transactions. Due to increasing order size and frequency among both City Trees branded products and toll transactions, the facility is currently producing approximately 30,000 grams of THC distillate monthly, processing an average of 500 pounds of trim material, 50-80 pounds of cured flower material, and 120 pounds of live flower material. Extraction efficiency has also gradually improved over time for the facility, now achieving up to 17% yield per batch of biomass intended for distillate production. These increases are reflected in recent revenue results, with the Company achieving successive record-breaking months in March and April 2021. As the Company further refines its processes and grows its subsidiaries’ footprint in the Southwest, output is expected to continue increasing to meet demand.

About CLS Holdings USA, Inc.

CLS Holdings USA, Inc. (CLSH) is a diversified cannabis company that acts as an integrated cannabis producer and retailer through its Oasis Cannabis subsidiaries in Nevada and plans to expand to other states. CLS stands for "Cannabis Life Sciences," in recognition of the Company's patented proprietary method of extracting various cannabinoids from the marijuana plant and converting them into products with a higher level of quality and consistency.

Sokin partners with Mastercard to extend payments partnership to LATAM


The two companies have extended their relationship, continuing to build on existing partnerships announced in the UK, Europe, South Asia and Singapore.

Mastercard (NYSE:MA)

LONDON, UK, May 18, 2021 / — Sokin has teamed up with Mastercard to make payments more open and transparent, removing the barriers that have historically hindered access and financial inclusion.
The two companies have extended their partnership to help consumers make transactions on their own terms. This builds on existing partnerships previously announced in the UK, Europe, South Asia and Singapore.

Sokin, the new payments-focused fintech, has signed a comprehensive partnership agreement with Mastercard to provide its fixed-price payment services across Mexico and Brazil.

Mastercard will be supporting Sokin under its Fintech Express program, enabling Sokin to further expand its global footprint and launch its next-generation card programmes for both consumers and businesses throughout the Latin American region.

As the first global payments platform to provide a fixed-fee payment service for cost-effective currency exchange with no hidden charges, Sokin will leverage Mastercard’s trusted and secure digital-first banking solutions and card services to expand its footprint and launch its next-generation card programs for businesses and consumers.

Together, we are simplifying and democratising the process, and will be able to provide digital payment solutions to people in Mexico and Brazil.”

Innovation and Inclusion have always been the drivers of how we frame our partnerships, and it is not different in this case.”, said Thiago Dias, VP of Fintech Strategy and Labs for Latin America and Caribbean.

Ahead of launching its services later this year, Sokin has already put in place similar agreements with Mastercard in Europe and Asia, including the November 2020 announcement that Sokin will become a Mastercard principal member and card issuer for Singapore. The Sokin Card will be available in 80 countries*, with the Sokin Wallet available in 200 countries and territories*.

HackEDU, Inc., Brings Secure Coding Knowledge, Expertise to the Retail & Hospitality ISAC

HackEDU, secure coding training trusted by startups through the Fortune 5, will share their science-based training expertise with RH-ISAC's members

SANTA MONICA, CA, USA, May 18, 2021 / — HackEDU, Inc., the Secure Coding Training company, today announced that it will be an essential partner in facilitating secure code education with the Retail & Hospitality Information Sharing and Analysis Center (RH-ISAC). The strategic partnership will provide members with practical knowledge on how to develop their secure coding training and application security awareness programs.

The RH-ISAC connects information security teams at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels to build better security for the retail and hospitality industries. Through the partnership, HackEDU will bring its deep expertise in secure coding training to the community, helping member organizations to prepare their development teams to deal with existing vulnerabilities in their codebase, and decrease the number of vulnerabilities produced in code in the future.

“Applications are one of the top attack vectors for cybercriminals, and developers who are proficient in secure coding are essential to a company’s security posture,” said Jared Ablon, CEO of HackEDU. “Reports show that more than half of developers aren’t trained in secure coding practices. This exhibits itself in the fact that the vulnerabilities that are most often fixed incorrectly have been at the top of the OWASP Top 10 for over 14 years. Developers must be given secure coding knowledge to reduce the risks associated with application security. We’re excited to join RH-ISAC to share the best practices and expertise that we’ve developed from working with hundreds of companies and training tens of thousands of developers.”

Retail and hospitality organizations are making greater use of applications and APIs to expand their range of products and services, improve operations, and increase revenue. This trend expands the attack surface for these organizations. HackEDU helps to secure applications by providing secure coding training that provides developers with both the knowledge to anticipate threats in their code, and also defend against them.

“We knew from our annual CISO Benchmark Report that application and software security was going to be a priority for our members this year. HackEDU provides our community – specifically our Security Awareness and Software Security Working Groups – with subject matter expertise for implementing secure code practices into the software development lifecycle. We are excited to have a partner who can help our members grow in these key areas,” said Kristen Dalton, Director, Research and Education at Retail & Hospitality ISAC.

The Newest in Sales Intelligence – Sales Control Plan Management

Imagine a CRM with complete transparency and 100% accuracy

This system takes the guess work out sales. Selling is not an art, it is a science.”

— Edward Henry

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 18, 2021 / — Specializing in professional sales training and consulting, Edward Henry Company has created the ultimate selling and management tool, Sales Control Plan Management. SCPM is a system that will change the direction of all sales managers and teams while maximizing their sales and management capabilities. This innovative, performance-based system provides managers with a CRM model which provides transparency and the metrics that will hold both the salespeople and customers accountable.

Selling can often become confusing and misguided through complex workflows, sales cycles and data. This is due to communication within the sales process being often reactive, and lacking transparency. “Sales staff do not always understand what management expects from them. So, how do we ensure the sales manager and staff training are all working on the same model,” asked Edward Henry, president of Edward Henry Company. “We need to identify the pain companies are having and address it. Reporting systems such as pipeline management from CRM are sales cycle driven and not sales process driven,” Edward added.

Sales managers spend valuable time on investigative administration which creates more sales waste than actual sales. Managers need to spend more time managing their team to achieve sales effectiveness and increase selling time. Managers and teams require a tool that provides them with the ability to save their time and resources. Sales Control Plan Management is that tool. By implementing this system, you will immediately reduce the sales waste that is created by investigating the sales stories and inaccurate data of deals that have gone cold or been lost. Managers will get a snapshot of each deal in its entirety and the system will direct alerts to the manager, salesperson and customer when losing engagement. The launch of SCPM comes at a time when all managers are looking for ways to improve their sales and adjust to the ongoing economic changes worldwide. Sales Control Plan is the ultimate selling solution.

Within Sales Control Plan Management are the Rules of Engagement. These are the unique portion of our selling process. In these rules, engagement can be controlled and managed. As a result, your team will be able to access all of their related data and interact comfortably with accuracy in their CRM instead of dreading and avoiding CRM data input. This is the newest in sales intelligence, creating the highest level of complete clarity in the entire sales process.

The Sales Control Plan consists of three management implementation areas: HR/Recruiting, Sales Force, and Sales Management. It is within these areas that changes can start to occur. Advancements include, but are not limited to, improvements in selling performance and training objectives, establishing accurate pipeline management, sales forecasting, reducing management waste, increasing revenue and profit, and reducing the overall employee churn rate.

“We have the resources needed to thrive and enjoy management success.” We built this innovative system to help sales managers and their employees reach their goals. You are going to be able to do this in the most efficient way possible while succeeding beyond your greatest expectations.

Founded in 2012 and completed near the end of 2020, Sales Control Plan Management is a system based on accountability. Many companies have not analyzed the needs of sales managers to help them manage their team in the most efficient way possible. Our mission is to provide genuine results for users and bring sales managers back to the most rewarding part of their career: helping their team grow and achieve their goals.

Repair And Maintenance Industry Trends Include Employers Increasingly Offering Zero-Hours Contracts

Repair And Maintenance Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact And Recovery To 2030

Repair And Maintenance Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact And Recovery To 2030

The Business Research Company’s Repair and Maintenance Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact and Recovery to 2030

LONDON, GREATER LONDON , UK, May 18, 2021 / — Many personal services employers in Europe, especially in the UK, are increasingly offering zero-hours contracts to deal with uncertain consumer demand. Zer0-hours contracts, also known as casual contracts, enable companies to employ staff without giving work guarantee. Employees are given little notice before shifts, they are called to work whenever there is "piece work" or “contract work”, and they are generally not offered leaves and other employee benefits. These contracts are increasingly becoming popular owing to the flexibility it offers to both employers and employees. For instance, according to the Office for National Statistics, UK, there was a 14% increase in zero-hours contracts from 2015 and 30% increase in zero hours contracts from 2016, a significant proportion of these employees are expected to be from the personal services industry which often employ free lancers on a non-contractual basis.
