Small Businesses Could take a Lead from Corporations, When it Comes to Energy Cost Savings in Deregulated Markets

Small business owners have to wear a lot of hats and they try and manage energy costs themselves, without realizing they can leverage the same kind of expertise and pricing, as big corporations”

— Demorian Linton, Principal Owner of Inertia Resources

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, US, June 21, 2019 / — Small businesses seem to be missing out on the energy breaks larger corporations are taking advantage of in deregulated markets, especially during the peak summer and winter months.

According to electric customer migration data from the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources, only about 65% of small businesses in the state switched from incumbent electric power sources to competitive electric sources in 2018, compared to 93% of large commercial and industrial companies who switched energy providers there last year.

There are a number of reasons small businesses are falling behind in the competitive energy market. According to Demorian Linton, Principal Owner of Inertia Resources, which is headquartered in Boston, but serves deregulated markets across the US, part of the issue is that small business owners have to wear a lot of hats and they try and do it themselves, without realizing they can leverage the same kind of expertise and pricing, as big corporations.

“The majority of the big businesses in the area take advantage of energy brokers to negotiate and lock in rates for them,” said Linton. “Business owners need to realize, just as they have a lawyer or accountant for their business, they should have an expert to broker their energy, too. There are so many things small business owners don’t know about when it comes to brokering their own energy, that they miss out on substantial savings by thinking it’s just a utility bill and they can do it themselves.”

According to a National Federation of Independent Business poll, energy costs are one of the top three expenses for 35% of small businesses. Linton said small businesses get taken advantage of by suppliers because they don’t realize energy suppliers typically won’t contact them to renew until just before their contract expires. This allows the cost per KW to increase throughout the year, especially during the peak summer and winter months, and when it’s time to renew, businesses are having to renew at a higher rate every year.

Energy suppliers also have to adjust their pricing margin to support marketing and advertising costs, that are then passed along to consumers.

Linton said energy rates in Massachusetts alone, have increased 94% in the last five years, and small businesses can grow their bottom line by following the lead of big corporations to work with brokers to save money on energy costs.

Energy Brokers save companies money on utility costs by leveraging their buying power and relationships with energy suppliers to negotiate the best rates, manage market fluctuations, predict futures, and capitalize on fixed-rate contracts to lock in the best energy rates for extended periods of time. They also have about half the overhead of suppliers and can pass that savings directly on to businesses.

Linton’s company, Inertia Resources, is one of the only premium brokers of electricity in the country for two of the largest U.S. energy companies. They broker energy for some of the most well-known Boston area businesses like New Balance Corporate, the Auerbach Center, the Bruins’ practice facility, G2O Spa and Salon, Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar locations, Yvonne’s, and all Davio’s restaurant locations. Inertia saved Lolita’s alone, over $64,000 in energy costs in their first six months by leveraging a rate that was $.04 less per KW for them.

Linton said as energy costs continue to increase, small business owners need to proactively evaluate their approach to energy suppliers or they may not be able to adjust the price of goods and services quickly enough to match rising energy costs without hurting their customer base.

Microsoft Extends Its Technical Partnership With HMS Software For A 24th Year

The technical alliance between HMS and Microsoft and started in the 90s. Microsoft announced that HMS has qualified as a Silver-certified partner through 2020.

Over the last two and a half decades, HMS and Microsoft have done marketing together, sales together, development and technical support together.”

— Chris Vandersluis

MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA, June 21, 2019 / — HMS Software, the publisher of TimeControl, one of the world's most popular timesheet systems has announced today that they have renewed their technical alliance with Microsoft for the 2019/2020 season. This relationship is one of the oldest technical alliances in the computer industry. This will be the 24th consecutive year the two firms have had a formal technical partnership.

“The relationship between Microsoft and HMS has deep roots,” says Chris Vandersluis, President of HMS Software. “It started back in 1995 with the integration of our TimeControl timesheet system and Microsoft Project but it has evolved so much further over the years. TimeControl is now part of so many Microsoft technologies from Windows Server to SharePoint and SharePoint Online and Dynamics and, of course Project. But, it is the relationships between people that are so profound. Over the last two and a half decades, HMS and Microsoft have done marketing together, sales together, development and technical support together.”

HMS Software’s TimeControl timesheet has had an integration with every version of Microsoft Project since 1995. The integration has evolved with new versions of Project. It now supports Microsoft Project, Microsoft Project Online, Microsoft Project Server and many other Microsoft products like SharePoint and Excel.

Microsoft has announced that HMS Software has qualified as a partner this year in the Project and Portfolio Management category. To qualify for these programs, HMS submitted TimeControl to Microsoft’s rigorous 3rd party product testing and had a number of staff members pass Microsoft Certified Professional certifications. HMS reports that this is the first of what will be several Microsoft Partner certifications it will achieve this year.

Microsoft technology is used to deliver both TimeControl and TimeControl Online, HMS Software’s in-the-cloud timesheet service. Other technologies used can vary from client to client. Windows Server is the platform for the server and some clients will combine that with Microsoft Project, Project Server, Project Online, SharePoint, Dynamics or SQL Server.

Using HMS Software’s TimeControl with Microsoft technologies allows clients to enhance their business processes to comply with numerous timesheet requirements such as simultaneous project tracking, billing, HR management, payroll, job costing and auditable governance such as R&D tax credits, DCAA or Sarbanes-Oxley requirements.

HMS has created a resources portal to help identify which Microsoft technologies can be advantageous when using TimeControl. The portal includes numerous resources including white papers, webcasts, PowerPoint presentations and more. The TimeControl Microsoft Technology Portal can be found at:

American Lawyer Challenges Legal Stereotypes

Anthony Barbuto

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES , June 21, 2019 / — American lawyer, Anthony Barbuto, is a social media sensation. With over 1.2 million fans on the smartphone media app, Tik Tok, Anthony challenges stereotypes of lawyers through the creation of short videos that are an exuberant mixture of comedy, dancing and lip singing. Known as @thelawyer on Tik Tok, Anthony’s fans commonly report enjoying the humorous contrast of seeing an attorney dancing across his law office. According to Anthony, the legal profession is one of the most criticized and disliked professions out there, and to combat this, through his videos, Anthony demonstrates that lawyers can in fact be wholesome, passionate and light-hearted, even in the workplace. Anthony defies traditional stereotypes of attorneys by injecting his videos with humor, verve, and fun.

By presenting the law as a more fun and inviting profession, Anthony has inspired countless young people to pursue a career as a lawyer, or other serious profession where exhibiting humor in the workplace has historically been considered taboo. While functioning as a role model for the youth, Anthony also inspires adults to approach their lives more joyfully and enthusiastically. He succinctly articulates his mission statement as follows: “My goal is to not only balance the stresses of the workplace with light-hearted fun, but also to inspire young people and encourage them never to lose their sense of humor.”

Because of his appeal to a wide range of ages, Anthony is uniquely poised in the social media world. His niche on social media is at the confluence of many disparate demographic groups, and outside of Tik Tok, Anthony has developed a following as a blogger of authentic Italian culture ( where he is known as @italianenthusiast on both Instagram and Facebook. Anthony, therefore, draws from an eclectic mix of cultural styles when creating his videos – everything from hip hop to country western to Italian. This crossover versatility is an important part of Anthony’s brand.

By garnering such a massive following in a brief amount of time, Anthony has attracted the notice of Tik Tok corporate, who has recognized him as a Popular Creator. His role as a Creator gives him the opportunity to thought partner with other innovative social media mavens on one of the most downloaded apps of all time (over 1 billion downloads as of February 2019).

Aside from Anthony’s social media interests, he is licensed to practice law in Florida, California and New Jersey, and runs a busy general practice in Wellington, Florida ( He also runs a class action practice (, and is currently exploring the representation of clients for losses relating to cryptocurrency investments.

They Said No

Greene Consulting Group a recognized leader in helping SMB maximize their marketing dollars ROI to get more customers. Visit to learn more.

The hardest part to sales is prospecting. We all are bothered by bad cold calls and emails pitching us things we don't need. But if done right, it could become a business’s #1 competitive advantage.”

— Maynard Greene

HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, June 21, 2019 / — Greene Consulting Group, an Inbound Lead Generation Company operating in Houston, Texas, announced today the opening of a new Real-Time Pay Per Call Lead Generation division. This news coincides nicely with Greene Consulting Group's recent recognition as a community favorite, due to helping non-profit organizations increase their online visibility and online donations through targeted inbound lead generation.

Greene Consulting Group has been operating in the Small and Medium Sized businesses market for Twenty-Three (23) Years and competes against notable businesses such as Rev-local and AT&T Business Solutions. They have been able to make such a strong impression on the market and gain reputation by providing large Agency Inbound Lead Generation services at a boutique Agency price.

Maynard Greene, Greene Consulting Group's Director of Systems spoke about its recent recognition, expanding on some of the decisions and motivations that led the business to the level it's currently reached.

"When Greene Consulting Group was founded, it was made abundantly clear we wanted to be the kind of company that was known for being a company putting real value into the world by cutting through all the noise and generating REAL results. One of the biggest challenges we faced was educating SMBs on the importance of investing their marketing dollars wisely. That their marketing dollars would be better spent buying customers instead of buying advertising.

Business owners pay tens of thousands of dollars on expenses that don’t drive revenue (think furniture, office space, salaries…).

Business owners even pay for things that are ‘supposed’ to drive revenue, but often fail to return a profit on that investment (TV and Radio spots for example). So why should Business owners compromise on lead generation.

More and more consumers are going to the web to find information about a company before they make their decision.

The hardest part to sales has always been the prospecting. Outbound sales is hard. People love to hate it. We all are bothered by bad cold calls and emails pitching us things we don't need. But if done right, it could become a business’s #1 competitive advantage.

All of us dream of having inbound sales calls from people wanting what we have to sell. Now that dream is real.

Greene Consulting Group has created a proven Pay Per Call lead generation program that targets the perfect prospects online and creates LIVE INBOUND SALES CALLS! YES…INBOUND!

Greene Consulting Group’s outbound marketing initiatives provide customers with valuable information about an offer that moves them toward making an inbound purchase. This system creates 5+ live inbound sales calls a day from consumers ready to buy and passes these calls directly to local businesses in real-time.

Using a blended, scalable approach, Greene Consulting Group drives traffic to their vertical specific web properties with strong calls to actions, which drive the consumer toward initiating phone contact.

With Greene Consulting Group’s robust call tracking technology, calls can be record for quality assurance purposes, caller ID’s and callers geographic information can be captured, and reports about call duration's, time, day, and much more can be easily viewed to determine what calls are the best for local businesses.

Fortunately, with some good people behind them, and an unwavering dedication to staying up to date on the ongoing changes in the Inbound Lead Generation space Greene Consulting Group was able to overcome every obstacle and really hit our stride."

Maynard Greene also mentioned that Greene Consulting Group's future plans involve offering businesses an opportunity to try these live inbound sales calls Risk FREE, with no obligation to buy. All they ask is that the small business recipients give Greene Consulting Group their honest feedback on the quality of the leads they received.

Greene Consulting Group plans to maintain its position at the forefront of helping small businesses be successful for years to come, building on its success, finding new ways to serve its community, customers and the world at large.

Life Events Can Lead You to See a Financial Advisor

MONTPELIER, VERMONT, USA, June 21, 2019 / — Provided by: Gabe Lajeunesse, AAMS

Over the years, you’ll experience many personal and professional milestones. Each of these can be satisfying, but they may also bring challenges – especially financial ones. That’s why you may want to seek the guidance of a financial professional. Here are some of the key life events you may encounter, along with the help a financial advisor can provide:

New job – When you start a new job, especially if it’s your first “career-type” one, you may find that you have several questions about planning for your financial future, including your retirement. You may have questions about how much you should contribute to your employer-sponsored retirement plan. What investments should you choose? When should you increase your contributions or adjust your investment mix? A financial advisor can recommend an investment strategy that’s appropriate for your goals, risk tolerance and time horizon.

Marriage – Newlyweds often discover they bring different financial habits to a marriage. For example, one spouse may be more of a saver, while the other is more prone to spending. And this holds true for investment styles – one spouse might be more risk-averse, while the other is more aggressive. A financial advisor can help recommend ways for you and your spouse to find some common ground in your saving and investment strategies, enabling you to move forward toward your mutual goals.

New child – When you have a child, you will need to consider a variety of financial issues. Will you be able to help the child someday go to college? And what might happen to your child, or children, if you were no longer around? A financial advisor can present you with some college-savings options, such as an education savings plan, as well as ways to protect your family, such as life insurance.

Career change – You may change jobs several times, and each time you do, you’ll need to make some choices about your employer-sponsored retirement plan. Should you move it to your new employer’s plan, if transfers are allowed? Or, if permitted, should you keep the assets in your old employer’s plan? Or perhaps you should roll over the money into an IRA? A financial advisor can help you explore these options to determine which one is most appropriate for your needs.

Death of a spouse – Obviously, the death of a spouse is a huge emotional blow, but it does not have to be a financial one – especially if you’ve prepared by having the correct beneficiary named on retirement accounts and life insurance policies. Your financial advisor can help ensure you have taken these steps.

Retirement – Even after you retire, you’ll have some important investment decisions to make. For one thing, you’ll need to establish a suitable withdrawal strategy so you don’t deplete your retirement accounts too soon. Also, you still need to balance your investment mix in a way that provides at least enough growth potential to keep you ahead of inflation. Again, a financial advisor can help you in these areas.

No matter where you are on your journey through life, you will need to address important financial and investment questions, but you don’t have to go it alone – a financial professional can help you find the answers you need.

Investment Strategy Can Be Your ‘GPS’ as You Travel Toward Goals

MONTPELIER, VERMONT, USA, June 21, 2019 / — Provided by: Gabe Lajeunesse, AAMS

Summer is here at last. For many people, it’s time to get the car ready for a long road trip. And with GPS-enabled smartphones, it’s now a lot easier to navigate these drives without getting lost. During your life, you may take many journeys – one of which is the long road you’ll travel toward your financial goals. But even on this path you can benefit from a “GPS” in the form of your goal-oriented, personalized strategy.

Your investment strategy can function this way by helping answer these questions:

How far do I have to go? Your smartphone’s GPS can quickly tell you how many miles you need to travel to arrive at your destination. And a well-constructed investment strategy can inform you of when you might reach a goal, such as having a desired amount of money when you retire, given your current age, earnings, sources of retirement income, and so on.

What route should I follow? Your GPS will plot out your route, showing what turns you should take along the way. Similarly, to reach your desired financial outcome, your investment strategy helps guide the investment decisions you make, such as investing adequate amounts in the appropriate vehicles, including your 401(k) and IRA.

What problems await me? When your smartphone’s GPS shows red on the route you’re following, you know that heavy traffic lies ahead. And your investment strategy can also help you manage bumps in the road, particularly if it’s a strategy you’ve designed with a financial professional, who has the knowledge and technology to create various scenarios and hypothetical illustrations to account for potential difficulties – i.e., a rate of return that’s less than expected, a lower income base than you had anticipated, greater college costs than you bargained for, and so on.

When should I take an alternate route? For whatever reason, you may deviate from the course plotted by your GPS – which will then helpfully re-route you. While following your investment strategy, if you make a wrong turn, so to speak – perhaps by putting insufficient funds in a retirement account or by assembling an investment mix that has become unsuitable for your risk tolerance – you may need to get back on track.

As we’ve seen, some analogies exist between your smartphone’s GPS and your investment strategy. And yet, there’s also a big difference in terms of complexity. It’s simple to program your smartphone to give you the directions you need. But crafting a personalized investment strategy takes time and effort. You need to consider all your goals – college for your children, a comfortable retirement, the ability to leave the legacy you want – along with your time horizon, risk tolerance and other factors. And your investment strategy may well need to change over the years, in response to changes in your family situation, employment and even your objectives – for example, you may decide you want to retire earlier (or later) than you had originally planned.

In any case, like your GPS, your investment strategy can help guide you – so make good use of it.

Intermountain Healthcare President Named one of Nation’s 50 Most Influential Clinical Executives

Marc Harrison, MD, Intermountain Healthcare

Marc Harrison, MD, Intermountain Healthcare

Modern Healthcare magazine has again named Intermountain Healthcare president and CEO Marc Harrison, MD, to its list of most influential clinical executives.

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, UNITED STATES, June 21, 2019 / — Modern Healthcare magazine has named Intermountain Healthcare president and CEO Marc Harrison, MD, to its annual list of the 50 most influential clinical executives in the nation.

This is the third consecutive year the healthcare magazine has selected Dr. Harrison in the top 10 of its annual list of the nation's most influential clinical leaders.

The rankings recognize clinicians working in the healthcare industry who are deemed by their peers and an expert panel to be the most influential in terms of demonstrating leadership and impact.

“At Intermountain we get to see the impact of Dr. Harrison’s leadership every day, but it’s great when those efforts are recognized outside our organization,” said Rob Allen, Intermountain Healthcare senior vice president and chief operating officer.

The magazine praised Dr. Harrison for taking bold steps in a number of key areas.

“Under Harrison’s leadership, Intermountain took a bold stand in the fight against opioid addiction. The health system saw a 30% drop in opioid prescriptions for acute pain in 2018. That amounted to 3.8 million fewer pills,” Modern Healthcare magazine said in an accompanying article on the list.

“Intermountain also reduced hospital-acquired infections by 43%. Harrison oversaw structural changes at Intermountain, including expanding physician clinic hours, resulting in more access for patients. And this May, the Intermountain-led Civica Rx announced a deal to produce its first generic drugs-two antibiotics.”

Initiatives under Dr. Harrison’s leadership (he was appointed president and CEO of Intermountain in 2016) such as Civica Rx, and Intermountain’s opioid reduction strategy have already been remarkably successful, noted Allen. “As Intermountain has shifted focus to value-based care, these types of programs are proving to keep people healthier at a lower cost,” he added.

Intermountain continues to strive for innovations that will change healthcare for the better. New initiatives include:
• The Utah Alliance for the Determinants of Health: This is a collaboration with Intermountain and local community organizations to improve health by focusing on non-medical factors such as housing instability, food insecurity, transportation, and utility needs.
• Newly announced five-year HerediGene Population Study: This new initiative, which is the largest DNA collection and mapping of a single population in U.S. history, aims to collect and analyze the genomes of 500,000 people in hopes of better predicting the correlation between genetics and serious health problems.

“Throughout the country there are examples of former and practicing physicians and nurses leading healthcare organizations towards greater quality of care, patient satisfaction and improved margins,” said Aurora Aguilar, editor of Modern Healthcare magazine.

Intermountain is a not-for-profit system of 24 hospitals, 160 clinics, 38,000 caregivers, a Medical Group with 2,300 employed physicians and advanced practice clinicians, a health insurance company called SelectHealth, and other health services. Intermountain is widely recognized as a leader in transforming healthcare by using evidence-based best practices to consistently deliver high-quality outcomes and sustainable costs.

The urgency to decrease the reliance of fossil fuels and transition to renewable energy sources has led to a major shift in the Benelux region towards offshore wind /geothermal power/solar power plant production and subsequently a requirement of different financing for these types of plants.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet, network and participate in panel discussions and debates with industry experts and professionals ranging from banks, infrastructure developers, and institutional investors, to lawyers, government agencies, financiers and regulators.

The two-day meeting will delve into various financing options within the Benelux region for infrastructure projects, including Public-Private Partnerships (PPP), project bonds, pension funds, refinancing, government funding, green bonds, and many more.

Highlights for 2019 include:

• Join the only conference tailored to the specific issues the Benelux region faces
• Hear the Dutch Ministry of Finance highlight what future investment opportunities are available in the Dutch market
• Understand how the EFSI in Flanders will facilitate investment in the region by bearing a part of the risk
• Case study updates from major projects in the region focusing on offshore wind, geothermal power and digital infrastructure
• Gain insight into the developments and projects are happening in the Port of Amsterdam
• Explore the different financing models available for renewable projects to ensure success
• Learn how green hydrogen has become an emerging technology within Europe and its combination with offshore wind
• Discover what makes investments in the digital infrastructure so attractive to infrastructure investors and how an open-access fibre network can be financed
• Exclusive networking opportunities with key opinion leaders and decision makers at the forefront of the market

Attendees of this year’s event will receive exclusive insight into the recent trends in project financing for infrastructure in the Benelux area, get a detailed look at international investment into Benelux infrastructure, explore further investment opportunities in renewable energy, and evaluate new mechanisms of investment.

More information can be found on the website, including the latest brochure which is now available to download, and how to book your place:
