United Thinkers Implements UniPay-to-UniPay Processing Integration Opening the Way for Collaborative Payment Processing

United Thinkers implemented a new UniPay-to-UniPay integration within its Enterprise Payment Management Platform, allowing platform licensees to utilize over 90 International Banking and Processing integrations.

New York, NY, January 28, 2017 –(PR.com)– United Thinkers, a New-York based commercial open-source Payment Management Software provider, added a new UniPay-to-UniPay integration that allows any UniPay customer to seamlessly provision merchants and process transactions using another UniPay instance. This allows independent UniPay instances to connect with each other, forming a global distributed payment processing network.

From now on any business that implements UniPay in its payment ecosystem could immediately process using any integrations implemented by other UniPay technology users. With the addition of every new company that uses UniPay other companies get the opportunity to use additional banking and payment processing integrations.

Originally, UniPay-based ecosystems could leverage previously-implemented integrations built for other platform licensees, however in most cases, usage of such integrations required going through formal re-certification procedures with banks and processors. This new functionality greatly simplifies the process, and turns a new page in the history of collaborative payment processing, establishing a simplified relationship with respective banks and processors.

With the introduction of the new technology, a UniPay instance can provision new merchants and process transactions through any other UniPay instance. Thanks to the new mechanism, new UniPay licensees do not have to wait for expensive and time-consuming certifications with banks and processors (such as First Data, Vantiv, and Elavon). They can connect to these banks and processors through other UniPay instances, leveraging the existing banking relationships, and start processing almost right away.

“This project is one of the phases of our large-scale initiative, intended to make UniPay an industry-wide payment technology standard, suitable for enterprise businesses to use as the foundation of their payment ecosystems,” says United Thinkers president, Eugene Kipnis. “In 2017 we’ll continue working on addition of various audit, logging, and administrative functions, making the platform even more suitable for large-scale enterprises.”

About UniPay
The appeal of the UniPay Platform is the open-source nature, affordable cost, robust omnichannel feature set, as well as the advanced API’s and wide variety of Code Samples for easy integrations.

The components of UniPay are UniCharge, UniBill, and UniRead Modules (www.UniPayGateway.com):
UniPay UniCharge Module is an advanced Processing and Remittance Engine, UniPay UniBill Module supports sophisticated Recurring Revenue Management capabilities and UniPay UniRead Module is a modern, embedded and EMV-ready terminal solution.

Gentex Reflects on a Light Quarter

Submit the press release

Gentex Corporation (NASDAQ: GNTX) released fourth-quarter 2016 results Friday morning, and shares of the auto-dimming mirror company are down around 2.6% as of this writing. Despite not being able to meet customer demand in the quarter, Gentex continues to advance its technology and further penetrate its core markets. Let’s take a closer look at how Gentex finished the year.

What happened with Gentex this quarter?

  • Revenue growth was driven by a 4% year-over-year increase in auto-dimming mirror shipments.
    • Revenue and unit shipments were negatively affected by a raw-material shortage of a specific commodity used in the majority of Gentex’s auto-dimming mirrors, which impacted its ability to meet full customer demand during the quarter.
    • To a lesser extent, growth was also held back by incremental plant shutdowns at OEMs, as well as inventory adjustments at “certain Tier 1 customers.”
    • These collectively had a negative impact to revenue of roughly $15 million in the quarter.
  • Therefore, revenue for the full calendar-year 2016 increased 9.1%, to $1.68 billion — near the low end of of Gentex’s previous guidance, which called for 2016 sales of $1.68 billion to $1.71 billion.
  • Automotive segment revenue grew 3.9% year over year in the fourth quarter, to $411.5 million.
  • “Other” segment revenue — including fire protection products and dimmable aircraft windows — declined 13.4% year over year, to $8.4 million.
  • Roughly 60% of all interior, auto-dimming mirror launches contained advanced features and added electronic content.
  • The total number of launches in 2016 grew roughly 10% over 2015.
  • Gross margin expanded 10 basis points year over year during the quarter, to 40.3%.
  • Full-year gross margin improved 70 basis points year over year, to 39.8%, above the high end of guidance that called for 2016 gross margin of 39.3% to 39.7%.
  • Repurchased 2.3 million shares of common stock during the quarter at an average price of $17.94 per share, leaving 6.7 million shares remaining under Gentex’s current repurchase authorization.
  • Cash flow from operations grew 73.1% year over year in Q4, to $118.4 million, bringing full-year cash flow from operations to $471.5 million.
  • Made additional debt payments of $15 million on its revolver loan on top of the normally scheduled principal repayment on its term loan.
  • Ended the quarter with cash and equivalents of $546.5 million and long-term debt of $178.1 million.

What management had to say

During the subsequent conference call, Gentex CFO Steve Downing added:

Despite the supplier issues and inventory adjustments that occurred recently, the fourth quarter and last few weeks have been a very exciting time for Gentex. The company presented at the SEMA automotive aftermarket show in November, and debuted our new aftermarket version of the Full Display Mirror, as well as a new HomeLink module designed for utility and ATV vehicles. This event was followed quickly by the CES show in January, where the company debuted several new technologies. Our booth this year was anchored by new products that addressed two of the emerging trends in automotive, camera monitoring systems or CMS and the connected car.

In particular at CES, Downing called attention to the company’s new three-camera system that works in combination with its new full-display mirror, including two cameras housed behind new exterior mirrors with electrochromic glass, and a third camera located in the short fin antenna on the roof of the vehicle. Gentex also demonstrated a “functional proof of concept” for its new embedded biometric mirror solution for vehicles, which can recognize individual people through iris scanning technology. Possible applications for this novel, secure biometric concept include vehicle security, start functionality, and personalization from mirror adjustments to seat locations, music, and preferred temperatures.

Looking forward

Based on the mid-January 2017 IHS Automotive forecast for light-vehicle production in North America, Europe, Japan, and South Korea — which predicts total light-vehicle production will increase 1% in 2017 over 2016 — Gentex currently anticipates full-year 2017 revenue to be in the range of $1.78 billion to $1.85 billion. Gentex also anticipates gross margin in 2017 will be between 39% and 40%, assuming the majority of expected annual customer price reductions will be offset by purchasing cost reductions and operational efficiency initiatives.

Finally, over the longer-term, looking at IHS’ production forecast for 2018 (which assumes 1% growth, as well), Gentex believes revenue will climb another 6% to 10% over currently forecasted 2017 revenue.

All things considered, this was another admirable performance from Gentex in light of the multiple near-term growth headwinds the company faced in the fourth quarter. As the company continues to invest in compelling new product offerings while its existing technology becomes more indispensable to automakers, I think today’s small pullback will prove to be nothing more than a blip in Gentex’s long-term radar.

The program provides future auto dealers and professionals with the skills and education necessary for successful, high-level careers in the retail automotive industry.

“In the past ten years, technology has had a huge impact on the way automotive dealers do business,” said Mike Esposito, President and CEO of Auto/Mate. “Some of the ‘old school’ dealers haven’t embraced all the changes in the same way that the younger, new generation have. Keiser’s program will provide these next-gen professionals with hands-on training that integrates technology usage into every day processes.”

Studies show that thirty-four percent of current dealer principals will soon be retired. Recent trends in the retail automotive industry have led to consolidation and acquisition of many smaller, family-run dealerships. Keiser University’s program identifies the unique challenges facing today’s automotive and vehicle retail distribution systems. Coursework is designed to equip students with the education, skills and techniques to thrive in this new environment.

“Our program has been designed to be both current and relevant to those who want a career in Automotive retail,” said Timothy Gilbert, chairman of the Automotive Dealership Management program (ADM) at Keiser University. “What I like most about Auto/Mate, and why we chose to partner with them, is that they’re growing quickly, continue to introduce innovative products, are user friendly and more than willing to work with us to make the transition a smooth one.”

Keiser University will use Auto/Mate’s DMS as an integral component in its classroom learning. For instance, when the subject of scheduling service appointments is covered, the students can immediately turn to the DMS and access the scheduling module to see how it’s used.

The Keiser University program is offered exclusively at its Flagship Residential Campus in West Palm Beach, FL. Students who complete the four-year program earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration, majoring in Automotive Dealership Management.

CAE Healthcare announces first mixed reality ultrasound simulation solution with Microsoft HoloLens

Submit the press release

ORLANDO, UNITED STATES and MONTREAL, CANADA — (Marketwired) — 01/27/17 — Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

On the eve of the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) in Orlando, Florida, the largest medical simulation conference, CAE Healthcare announced the release of CAE VimedixAR, an ultrasound training simulator integrated with the Microsoft HoloLens, the world’s first self-contained holographic computer. CAE Healthcare will be the first company to bring a commercial Microsoft HoloLens application to the medical simulation market.

VimedixAR delivers an unprecedented simulation-based training experience, allowing learners to interact and move freely within a clinical training environment that is augmented with holograms. For the first time, students will be able to examine 3D anatomy inside the body of the Vimedix manikin. As learners practice scanning an animated heart, lungs or abdomen, they will observe in real-time how the ultrasound beam cuts through anatomy to generate a ultrasound image.

Learners can elevate the VimedixAR hologram above the body to gain an understanding of human anatomy and how its circulatory, respiratory and skeletal structures are integrated. The hologram of the heart, for example, can be isolated and enlarged, rotated, and turned as it floats at eye level. If a learner is struggling to understand a concept, he or she will be able to walk around the hologram to gain a different perspective.

“We are on the cusp of a new frontier in simulation for healthcare,” said Dr. Robert Amyot, president of CAE Healthcare. “Augmented and virtual reality can accelerate learning and provide shared training experiences in a more immersive and engaging clinical learning environment. Our engineering team is just beginning to explore possibilities with the Microsoft HoloLens, and we look forward to offering it as a key training solutions technology to our industry partners.”

The CAE Healthcare team has already begun to develop training prototypes with the medical device industry that incorporate the Microsoft HoloLens and are expected to accelerate professional education for new technologies. With CAE Healthcare’s virtual views of human anatomy and the Microsoft HoloLens, physicians will be able to practice placing cardiac devices or implants with speed and precision before they perform procedures on real patients.

“At Microsoft our goal with HoloLens and mixed reality is to help customers visualize and interact with 3D content in ways that offer new possibilities for creation, collaboration and consumption of information,” said Lorraine Bardeen, General Manager, Microsoft HoloLens and Windows Experiences. “It is inspiring to see how CAE is integrating HoloLens into its healthcare simulation portfolio, and we are excited about the opportunities mixed reality presents to revolutionize the future of patient education and training through the use of holographic computing.”

The VimedixAR module with Microsoft HoloLens will be available for presale and during the IMSH conference and online. For more information, visit caehealthcare.com/hololens

CAE Santé sera la première entreprise à commercialiser une application intégrant les HoloLens de Microsoft sur le marché de la simulation médicale.

VimedixAR fournit une expérience inégalée de formation axée sur la simulation qui permet aux professionnels en formation d’interagir et de se déplacer librement dans un environnement de formation clinique qui est enrichi d’hologrammes. Pour la première fois, les étudiants seront en mesure d’examiner l’anatomie en 3D à l’intérieur du simulateur Vimedix. À mesure que les professionnels en formation s’exercent à examiner un cœur, des poumons ou un abdomen animé, ils observeront en temps réel la façon dont le faisceau ultrasonore découpe l’anatomie afin de générer une image échographique.

Les professionnels en formation peuvent élever l’hologramme VimedixAR au-dessus du corps afin de mieux comprendre l’anatomie humaine et la façon dont ses structures circulatoires, respiratoires et squelettiques sont intégrées. L’hologramme du cœur, par exemple, peut être isolé et agrandi; il peut effectuer une rotation, et tout cela, au niveau des yeux. Si un professionnel en formation a du mal à comprendre un concept, il sera en mesure de se déplacer autour de l’hologramme afin d’avoir une perspective différente.

« Nous sommes sur le point d’entrer dans une nouvelle ère dans le domaine de la simulation médicale, a déclaré le Dr Robert Amyot, président de CAE Santé. La réalité augmentée et virtuelle peut accélérer l’apprentissage et fournir des expériences communes de formation dans un environnement clinique plus immersif. Notre équipe d’ingénieurs ne fait que commencer à explorer les possibilités des HoloLens de Microsoft, et nous espérons les fournir en tant que principale technologie de formation à nos partenaires de l’industrie. »

L’équipe de CAE Santé a déjà commencé à élaborer avec les fabricants d’équipements médicaux des prototypes qui intègrent les HoloLens de Microsoft, ce qui devrait accélérer la formation professionnelle sur les nouvelles technologies. Grâce aux images virtuelles de l’anatomie humaine de CAE Santé et aux HoloLens de Microsoft, les médecins seront en mesure de s’exercer à positionner des dispositifs ou des implants cardiaques plus rapidement et avec une plus grande précision avant d’effectuer la procédure sur des patients réels.

« À Microsoft, notre objectif avec les HoloLens et la réalité mixte consiste à aider les clients à visualiser du contenu 3D et à interagir avec celui-ci de manière à offrir de nouvelles possibilités en matière de création, de collaboration et de consommation de l’information, a déclaré Lorraine Bardeen, directrice générale, Microsoft HoloLens et Windows Experiences. Il est très inspirant de voir la façon dont CAE intègre les HoloLens dans sa gamme de simulateurs médicaux, et nous sommes emballés par les possibilités de la réalité mixte à révolutionner l’avenir de la formation médicale grâce à l’utilisation de l’informatique holographique. »

Le module VimedixAR doté des HoloLens de Microsoft sera disponible en prévente, de même qu’en ligne et durant la conférence IMSH. Pour plus de renseignements, visitez caehealthcare.com/hololens

CAE Healthcare announces first mixed reality ultrasound simulation solution with Microsoft HoloLens

Submit the press release

ORLANDO, UNITED STATES and MONTREAL, CANADA–(Marketwired – Jan. 27, 2017) –

Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

On the eve of the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) in Orlando, Florida, the largest medical simulation conference, CAE Healthcare announced the release of CAE VimedixAR, an ultrasound training simulator integrated with the Microsoft HoloLens, the world’s first self-contained holographic computer. CAE Healthcare will be the first company to bring a commercial Microsoft HoloLens application to the medical simulation market.

VimedixAR delivers an unprecedented simulation-based training experience, allowing learners to interact and move freely within a clinical training environment that is augmented with holograms. For the first time, students will be able to examine 3D anatomy inside the body of the Vimedix manikin. As learners practice scanning an animated heart, lungs or abdomen, they will observe in real-time how the ultrasound beam cuts through anatomy to generate a ultrasound image.

Learners can elevate the VimedixAR hologram above the body to gain an understanding of human anatomy and how its circulatory, respiratory and skeletal structures are integrated. The hologram of the heart, for example, can be isolated and enlarged, rotated, and turned as it floats at eye level. If a learner is struggling to understand a concept, he or she will be able to walk around the hologram to gain a different perspective.

“We are on the cusp of a new frontier in simulation for healthcare,” said Dr. Robert Amyot, president of CAE Healthcare. “Augmented and virtual reality can accelerate learning and provide shared training experiences in a more immersive and engaging clinical learning environment. Our engineering team is just beginning to explore possibilities with the Microsoft HoloLens, and we look forward to offering it as a key training solutions technology to our industry partners.”

The CAE Healthcare team has already begun to develop training prototypes with the medical device industry that incorporate the Microsoft HoloLens and are expected to accelerate professional education for new technologies. With CAE Healthcare’s virtual views of human anatomy and the Microsoft HoloLens, physicians will be able to practice placing cardiac devices or implants with speed and precision before they perform procedures on real patients.

“At Microsoft our goal with HoloLens and mixed reality is to help customers visualize and interact with 3D content in ways that offer new possibilities for creation, collaboration and consumption of information,” said Lorraine Bardeen, General Manager, Microsoft HoloLens and Windows Experiences. “It is inspiring to see how CAE is integrating HoloLens into its healthcare simulation portfolio, and we are excited about the opportunities mixed reality presents to revolutionize the future of patient education and training through the use of holographic computing.”

The VimedixAR module with Microsoft HoloLens will be available for presale and during the IMSH conference and online. For more information, visit caehealthcare.com/hololens
