Perks Group is the Country’s Leading Affinity Program with National Discounts for Millions of Members



NEW YORK , NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2019 / — Perks Group provides it members unparalleled discounts on services and products across the country. Thanks to a range of unique benefits (namely regularly updated savings and easily-accessible discounts), Perks Group is considered by many to be the country’s leading affinity program.

Perks Group began in 1988 when the affinity program started offering their employer-sponsored savings program to companies with more than 1,000 employees. Today, they have grown to become one of the largest affinity programs in the country and offer millions of members discounts on necessary and luxury items alike.

Through the Perks Group app, appropriately named PerksConnect, members gain access to thousands of brand-name items available in the national discount network. The program saves its users thousands of dollars on everyday purchases including deals on gas, traveling expenses, groceries, local dining, shopping, attractions and more. The Perks Group brings together consumers, merchants, daily deal networks, manufacturers, and distributors into one easy-to-use and convenient program that benefits everyone involved.

From more exclusive beginnings, Perks Group today has been implemented into over 1,000 major corporations, colleges, & alumni associations across America. Because of this, the group has been able to continually improve their discounts and enlist in new partnerships with top organizations.

Member Advantages of the Perks Group Program

Regularly Updated Savings –– In certain affinity programs, members may have to rely on ongoing deals that can take days or weeks to refresh. Perks Group is different, offering PerksConnect users regularly updated savings depending on their location. Lists of savings are updated on occasion through the app so users can access a variety of discounts to fit their individual needs.

Growing Number of Providers –– Perks Group continues to attract new members with updates to their savings network thanks to new companies signing up regularly. When a business or company joins, they are promoted across the network so that current members can get acquainted with their offerings and connected with new deals. Because Perks Group continues to grow and take on new clients, the available savings program expands every day.

Easily-Accessible Discounts –– In 2011, Perks Group began offering mobile discounts through the PerksConnect app to make accessing savings as easy as opening a smartphone. But the group also allows members to use savings through several other methods: members can use an 800-number with a value code, download and print coupons, or use instant savings when making purchases online through a provided link.

National Coverage –– The affinity programs’ merchant network extends from coast to coast, providing a long list of available savings. And when members travel, their PerksConnect app keeps track of local deals no matter where in the country they travel to.

Perks Group helps businesses show employee appreciation by giving members access to a far-extending discount program and, in turn, encourage retention. Today, over 200,000 business locations throughout the U.S. honor perks discounts, making it a leader in national savings programs.

Hidden Costs That First-Time Home Buyers Should Be Aware Of With Kerri Nettles

Kerri Nettles

Buying your first home is an extremely exciting time, but according to Kerri Nettles you should always consider that there might be some hidden expenses.

OCEAN SPRINGS, MISSISSIPPI, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2019 / — The first thing most couples want to do when the encounter the house of their dreams is to sign the mandate without a second thought, especially if the price tag associated with it is extremely generous. However, according to Kerri Nettles, a real estate agent with years of experience under her belt, there are a number of costs which first-time buyers often fail to take into account when going ahead with the purchase of a house. Some of these are direct and some indirect, but the important thing is that they add up. We’ll take a look at some of them below.

Maintenance Costs

Like every other asset in life, houses can deteriorate over time, and require constant maintenance in order to ensure their longevity. And according to Kerri Nettles, owners should be planning on putting aside about one to two percent of the value of the house per year in order to cover the maintenance. This includes home cleaning, gutter clearing, gardening, pressure washing and miscellaneous maintenance such as repainting walls.

Property Taxes

“Property taxes vary from state to state,” Kerri Nettles says. “But one thing is for certain – they’re costly and they’re constant.” They also vary wildly depending on, other than the state, the city the property is in, the type of house it is, as well as ordinance. It’s important to double check that you’re paying the correct taxes. If you believe that you’re paying too much – and this does happen sometimes – there are lawyers who can help you recoup your losses.

Closing Costs

The number you see on the advertisement is rarely going to be the number that gets deducted from your bank account when you sign the final agreement on the house. In fact, there is a laundry lists of costs that goes hand in hand with finalizing a mortgage. These include: Mortgage taxes, lender application fees, attorney’s fees, title insurance and recording fees. In general this could cost as much as two to five percent of the value of the entire property, so it’s worth taking them into account before you decide if you want to buy the house or not.

This new application provides a simple to use interface with easy to read data.

VegaWallet hopes the release of their new wallet application makes cryptocurrency transactions easier for a new generation of users.

VegaWallet (Crex24:VGW)

Simplicity is key! If you want to continue to promote the growth of this special technology then you need to implement an easier way for the every day person to use it!”

— Jacob Ballou : Co-Founder of VegaWallet

VALLETTA, MALTA, January 21, 2019 / — The popularity of cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, continuously grows throughout today's world. The increasing use of this technology for financial transactions such as cross border remittance or peer to peer purchases also continues to increase. New software and technology are introduced daily to attract niche customers but many platforms continue to forget about one thing, the new generation of users.

In order to accommodate this new generation of users, VegaWallet has promised to implement a complete cryptocurrency platform. Their platform promises to make things simpler for people new to using blockchain based payment methods. The first phase of their roadmap is coming to an end with the release of their secure digital asset wallet. While most wallets tend to focus on one specific asset, VegaWallet launches with support for five. These include the ever popular Bitcoin, and other popular cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash, and their very own VegaWallet Token. Most platforms sacrifice several features to promote other specific needs. VegaWallet does not sacrifice security, usability, or overall performance and is truly in a league of its own.

VegaWallet is a complete cryptocurrency platform with their secure mobile wallet acting as one small part of the encompassing user experience. The VegaWallet experience is designed for both beginners and veterans. The easy to use interface and options have made it simpler than ever to start your journey into cryptocurrency. The application provides users with a dashboard introducing the simplest to read price data on the market, followed by an immaculately designed wallet interface for asset storage.

VegaWallet is an ambitious start-up registered in Malta with plans to introduce simple platforms to other niches of the cryptocurrency as well. Their digital asset and utility token exchange launch shortly followed by their bread and butter projects, the full point of sale and "VegaPay" update to their application. They have promised their point of sale will make it just as easy to accept cryptocurrency while running your business as it currently is to accept credit cards. The system will be "backward" compatible with credit card and cash functions as well. It will also include features like inventory management, employee management, and payroll services to truly help replace outdated systems used by so many local businesses around the world. Giving these businesses features like this for next to nothing is the main selling point in the future interest of this platform and could possibly help lead to an overall market revolution.

For now, we can see a glimpse of what this new and thriving business can deliver to the market, especially in times when most people lack full understanding. Several partnerships have formed with prominent companies across the States and throughout the globe in order to advance their mission of real-world applications. You can download the VegaWallet Application on the App Store or Google Play. The company even provides a thorough walkthrough on their blog for new users in order to successfully set up their account and understand what they are looking at.

17 year old is CEO & Founder of Synbook and other international companies

Noah Ruehli, CEO & Founder

Synbook on the App Store

Synbook on the Play Store

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, January 21, 2019 / — Starting a new business that serves millions of people around the globe is a difficult task at any age, however, at the age of 17, it sounds almost impossible. There are some exceptions to this, youngsters who are full of ideas & energy are creating a new world & setting new rules. Millionaire by 21 & retirement by 25 is the new life goal. One such example is Noah Ruehli, a 17-year-old boy living in Switzerland, originally from South Africa who has created a mobile app platform called Synbook that will connect people in their real life by connecting each other over a map.

The 'Synbook' smartphone app is available on both Android & iPhone. Noah conceived & refined the concept so that people can get directly in touch with people who are interested to meet each other. The demand & application of such a platform is limitless. The app has been designed & developed with rigorous research & development process over one year. It is focussed on the younger generation that devotes a lot of time on social networking apps. The entire experience of finding & connecting with people in real life just for friends or for business with the skills you are looking for is transitioned from a boring liking site to a social networking app with Synbook.

Noah had the realization that people interacting on social networking sites can do a lot more than just liking & commenting on each other's pictures. He has a vision of the world where person's will be able to connect with each other anywhere in the world and people will meet each other again in real life. Synbook aims to transform the social networking experience from a distraction productive engagement for the users.

Other team members involved in the project were 'Evan Luthra' and 'Bastian Yotta'. Evan took care of the technical aspects of development as CTO & Bastian consulted about the marketing strategy. Noah was prominently overseeing the entire design & development process as he has acquired a lot of knowledge about IT development through self-learning & interacting with tech-entrepreneurs. He did not have a formal school education & was faced with debt issues during childhood. In his opinion, the problems he faced during childhood brought him the determination to succeed in life & he started working since the age of 12. Over the last 5 years, Noah has gotten rid of his debt, started many entrepreneurial ventures & created multiple jobs. He wants to provide youngsters with better opportunities to realize their dreams & get guidance from others with experience through Synbook.

Synbook headquarters are located in Zurich Switzerland. The team behind Synbook is confident of the success of the project & Noah is leading the marketing & advertising campaigns to introduce the app to the world. The vision of Synbook is to use technology to create a transformative change in our society by mutual cooperation & talent recognition.

At the moment the app is only available in Switzerland. It will be available international in a few weeks.

Renewable Energy Companies Leaving Millions in Unclaimed Royalty Income on the Table by not Licensing Data

Get paid a royalty for licensing your data

Energy Data Alliance

A cloud-based market intelligence ecosystem for renewable energy


Get paid a royalty for licensing your data

IntelStor Energy Data Services

Data owners who out-license or cross-license their data could collectively see a total royalty income upwards of US$673 million in the US alone.

HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, January 20, 2019 / — Digital content aggregation and data licensing is a well-established business practice for digitally delivered services in other industries. Just like a Hollywood movie studio develops a new blockbuster and licenses it to movie theaters, television broadcasters, and other online digital media platforms like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc., there is a need for a Netflix of energy data in order to provide companies with a commercial incentive to share their content.

With the advent of digital transformation in renewable energy, this industry has an opportunity in front of it to share more of the data which companies have amassed on asset performance and health monitoring. There are already several digital service platform providers, a plethora of asset owners, as well as data analytics companies who will create more digital content in 2019 than in the rest of the industry’s history combined.

This comes in the form of asset performance reports which analyze SCADA and CMS data, and could even combine other data like end of warranty inspection reports, borescope images for a gearbox, blade leading edge erosion monitoring, bearing lubricant quality and more.

These companies will be generating digital content and data that has both direct value for asset performance management or asset health monitoring, as well as indirect value in terms of competitive and market intelligence, such (i.e. identification of component failures, technology usage inside the wind turbine, component pricing data, etc.).

Proactive asset owners, OEMs, or insurance brokers with reams of asset reliability and performance data who out-license or cross-license their data could collectively see a total royalty income upwards of US$673 million in recognized commercial value for the data they own or control in the United States market alone.

This underscores the need for a data and digital content exchange to facilitate such licensing transactions. Enter the Energy Data Alliance, a group of companies who have agreed to pool data and cross-license it with each other. Comprised of OEMs, asset owners and data analytics providers, this platform creates a standardized process for data rich companies to share data and generate royalty income.

In the past, asset owners, OEMs or independent service providers had no commercial incentive to share their data with other companies. This resulted in most companies stockpiling a significant amount of SCADA, CMS and other data while being highly reluctant to share it for fear of liability exposure on warranty claims.

However, most companies would likely share more of their data if they were offered a royalty for licensing it, instead of just giving it away to a data pool. Nevertheless, most of these content-generating companies will not consider the monetization of this indirect value related to market intelligence as a core business for them.

As with the adoption of digital content aggregation and data licensing in other industries, what is required for this data-as-a-service (DaaS) business model to function in renewable energy is an online marketplace for asset health monitoring and asset performance data.

The companies who have data to share can anonymously list the data fields they have to license, and potentially a small sample of their data. Interested buyers / licensees would evaluate the content and indicate if they were willing to accept the commercial terms related to the license, such as duration, exclusivity, jurisdiction of the license, prohibited uses, etc.

Once the license transaction is agreed upon, and the licensee provides payment, the content owners share their data through their own application programming interface (API) or some other information sharing mechanism. Companies can even offset their cost of in-licensing data which they require to build digital models / twins if they share some of their own data.

Content owners retain all rights, title, and maintain data security / integrity themselves on their own servers until the transfer of a copy of their data. All transferred content can be digitally tagged and the usage can be tracked by using blockchain / digital ledger technology in order to ensure proper use and license term compliance.

Asset owners and other data contributors can retain the right to refuse to license at their discretion by utilizing a rules engine. That means asset owners, OEMs, and component suppliers who contribute data will only license what they want & to whom they want.

This package of information can then be used to identify sales opportunities for aftermarket components, fleetwide servicing issues, or even performance upgrade opportunities which asset owners did not know existed.

Most asset performance and health monitoring data is highly fragmented due to distributed asset ownership of turbine models from a single OEM amongst multiple asset owners and operators. This business model would allow data analytics companies or the services divisions of OEMs to pool data from several asset owners or even the asset owners plus other OEMs in order to get a complete picture.

Content licensing is an enabler for multi-brand services, since OEMs who want to perform service on competitor branded assets will require the SCADA, CMS and other data from the asset owner to build the digital asset profile / twin.

In the emerging field of digital services, companies who generate data and companies who want access to it need to employ a content licensing business model in order to recognize the full value of their products and services.

Content monetization opportunities exist for asset owners, and even insurance companies. They are likely to see commercial benefit from partnerships with analytics companies, asset performance management companies, asset health monitoring companies, and energy trading / balancing companies who are all data thirsty at the moment. The asset performance data can be sold or traded for services or other commercial rights, as companies with data attempt to balance the negotiating field in service agreements with companies that have a strong IP position.

While we may be less mature in renewable energy when it comes to monetizing data, we certainly have significant upside potential that data owners should not let go to waste. Companies can monetize both direct and indirect value from their data.
