I don’t blame you for ignoring our prisoner population. Most people don’t even know anybody inside of a prison. But our society should be judged on how we treat our most vulnerable citizens. Those vulnerable populations include our prisoners because they usually come from poor socioeconomic backgrounds. There is a lot we can do to help them reintegrate into society in order to reduce crime rates across the country.
That’s why it breaks my heart to see this lawsuit levied against Securus Technologies. Securus is a Texas-based telecommunications company that provides services to law enforcement and criminal justice facilities across the country. This company has a great history of innovating software that makes prisoners lives easier while taking the burden off law enforcement.
Securus recently rolled out to incredible innovations. The first is video chat technology that allows inmates, friends and family to communicate like anybody would on the outside. It is an especially effective innovation for children who have a parent behind bars.
The second innovation helps law enforcement. A new software program can lock onto a person’s voice and deconstruct it to develop a vocal signature. That vocal fingerprint is then run through a database of recorded telephone calls. Every single phone call that the voice was involved with can be pulled up automatically for law enforcement review.
But Global Tel Link, Securus Technology’s biggest competitor, has filed a lawsuit against this innovative company. This lawsuit is completely frivolous and just gums up the works. It is the kind of distraction that can drag Securus down just a bit. The quality of prisoner lives is at stake.
Securus recently challenged Global Tel Link to a bake-off. Securus wants to show the world that it is the leader in prisoner telecommunications and that it has the right to use its innovations to help better people’s lives.
The New York State Bar Association has developed a new Lawyer Referral and Information Service Portal. The service aims to provide people from New York with a new way to find a suitable lawyer for legal representation.
The portal launched by ILRIS will offer confidential services to people by helping them to acquire legal help. The lawyers allowed to provide legal counsel to people will have gone through a verification process. The verification process will involve confirmation of the lawyer’s credentials by the New York State Bar Association. The reviewing is meant to assure that people will be matched to the right legal representative.
The technology which was developed in partnership with legal.io will help to redefine legal service delivery. Lawyers will serve much more people at a lower cost. The online platform will work towards enhancing trust for all entities that seek to depend on the New York Law.
The staff at the State Bar will review the submitted questionnaire. You will then be matched with an outstanding lawyer who is near or within your locality. The first 30-minute consultation will cost the client $35. The consultation fee will not be charged if the consultation will revolve around social security, injury, medical malpractice, veterans and military law.After the initial consultation, you will then proceed to negotiate the representation fee with an attorney of your liking. The New York State Bar has the largest voluntary state association bar and boasts of a 72000 membership.

When Rick Libby, president of Traveling Vineyard, bought the company in 2010, he never imagined that it would be as successful as it is today. Libby developed the ‘traveling vineyard’ concept 16 years ago when he was working for Geerlings and Wade.
At the wine firm, he was asked to create a new strategy that would increase the direct sales of wine, which was sold through a catalog at the time. After talking about it with a friend, he got the idea to use in-home demonstration to sell wine, just like his friend’s wife used the technique to sell kitchenware. When put to test, the strategy led to greater sales.
Traveling Vineyard continues to improve
Although Traveling Vineyard is successful, the company continues to implement new ideas. For example, the firm recently started using Awesomm Mobile Software to help wine guides process orders and perform other tasks faster. The company also created Sommology, a system that makes it easier for guides to arrange beneficial tastings and pair food with wines. Travel Vineyard has found that using HubSpot to build relationships with customers is very successful. Mr. Rick Libby explains that the automated system is effective in tracking sales leads, allowing representatives to maximize the value of all leads.
Maintaining relationships with wine guides is important
Although Travel Vineyard regularly trains and encourages wine guides, the company does not place unnecessary restrictions on them. The wine guides are allowed to choose their working hours and don’t have to wear uniform while working. The company recognizes the importance of respecting people instead of taking them for granted. That’s why the company attracts several entrepreneurs, Libby says.
About Traveling Vineyard
Traveling Vineyard uses an in-home wine tasting sales technique that benefits both the vineyard representatives and customers.

The customers get to sample different types of wine before they buy what they like. They also get to attend events where they taste wine and learn how to pair food with wine.
