The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2021-02-08T00:24:00Z New Soberlive unit now has facial ID to provide secure entry 2021-02-08T00:24:00Z new-soberlive-unit-now-has-facial-id-to-provide-secure-entry A new contactless and automatic device with facial recognition can become an organisation’s first line of defence in restricting employees and visitors who are under the influence of alcohol or are not authorised.Soberlive FRX from Andatech comes with an online data management system that is ideal for live monitoring of a workplace or organisation’s alcohol testing policy and provides solid record-keeping with photographic evidence of every alcohol breath test of employees, patients or visitors.Andatech’s new Soberlive FRX can be connected to any access control system, including a gate control, providing the results in less than 10 seconds. The unit also can double as an employee time attendance system logging the employee’s ID, blood alcohol concentration (BAC) and time of entry.The new device can even operate when people are wearing masks, although the mask does need to be slipped down when doing the breath test.“The Soberlive FRX saves valuable time, eliminates direct physical contact and reduces the need for additional staff for the screening,” said Jaka Exstrada, Andatech’s workplace specialist.“The wall-mounted unit is highly accurate and designed to protect the health and safety of an organisation’s employees. I expect it will become an integral part of not only offices and workplaces, but also construction sites, airlines and logistics companies where alcohol testing is conducted daily and employers are after a fast, efficient and cohesive system.” To prevent a sober buddy taking an alcohol test on someone’s behalf, the Soberlive FRX utilises facial verification three times: once before the test, once during the test when it snaps a photo of the testee, and once more after the test. The new Andatech unit has a large internal memory with the ability to store 10,000 registered faces and 2,000 test results. This can be increased to 20,000 faces and 5,000 test records per device with cloud-based storage and connection through andalink software, which bridges the Soberlive FRX with a state-of-the-art traceability system.andalink and the cloud storage is secured via SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and link encryption, so everything is safely stored and available for future reference.Administrators can access the platform anywhere at any time. Multiple devices from multiple locations can be synchronised, making it ideal for remote sites as employees can take their own test without the need for someone else to administer the test. The Soberlive FRX links every test result to the registered face/user.The Soberlive FRX can be set up using three methods of connection: Ethernet, WiFi and 4G for remote sites. Highly durable, the Soberlive FRX can be used in extreme temperatures ranging from -10 to 50 degrees Celsius.“Because results from tests are recorded instantly and synched with the andalink account, administrators can conduct live monitoring of a workplace’s screening and alcohol testing policy. This provides solid record-keeping with photographic evidence of every test taken by employees and visitors,” Exstrada added.Only available from Andatech, the Soberlive FRX comes with a one-year warranty. The device has an FxCell3 fuel cell sensor for high accuracy, which can easily be replaced when required.https://andatech.com.au/products/andatech-soberlive-frx (with @ 1 min video of it being used)endsAbout Andatech:Andatech is a 100% Australian owned company that designs, supplies, supports and services safety products including high quality alcohol and drug testing equipment.

Doing this can save considerable dollars on the power bill.While dehumidifiers are great for comfort, they also inhibit mould and bacterial growth, which is a big help for allergy and asthma sufferers.The new Vienne ION630 desiccant dehumidifier from health and wellness company, Andatech, delivers an impressive daily dehumidification rate of up to 10 litres a day. The unit can be set to dehumidify between 40 to 60 per cent relative humidity (RH) at increments of 5 per cent, which is a substantial reduction.The Vienne has a power consumption level of 420-740W depending on the mode of operation, which is 20 to 40 per cent less than a portable air conditioner.Suited for large areas up to 42 sqm, the Vienne also has a built-in negative ion generator that helps to freshen and balance the air, and has an antibacterial air filter.[caption: Andatech’s ionmax ION630 Vienne dehumidifier’s control panel]One of the benefits of being a desiccant dehumidifier means that it is easy to maintain with no replaceable parts. It uses a zeolite desiccant that regenerates itself to continue dehumidifying. Emptying the large 4.2 litre water tank is easy thanks to some clever design features, which include a continuous drainage option whereby the supplied hose can take extracted water straight to a drainage source. Various safety features allow the Vienne ION360 to operate unattended, such as fall-down, tank-full and abnormal temperature detection, and unlike air conditioners, it does not emit greenhouse gases.Other user benefits include a 12-hour timer, low noise levels of 35-46dB, and a carry handle to easily move it around the home. Measurements are: 520mm (H) x 379mm (W) x 239mm (D) and it weighs 7.5kg. It comes with a one-year warranty and has an RRP of $549.www.andatechdistribution.com.auendsAbout Andatech:Andatech is a 100% Australian owned company that specialises in personal safety, medical devices and health & wellness products. https://www.andatechdistribution.com.au/ Matching Valentine’s gifts for partners 2021-01-19T23:17:05Z matching-valentines-gifts-for-partners Can’t think what to buy your loved one this Valentine’s Day?Why not buy each other a gift that will help keep everyone safe on the roads and help prevent your partner from losing their licence: a personal breathalyser.

Global public health officials have reinforced those sentiments, with Tom Woods, Chairman of the Global Steering Committee for Quality Assurance of Health Products for the World Bank, calling for the adoption of common standards including barcode scanning, “the most important and under-discussed element in preventing vaccine distribution failures and ensuring traceability and patient safety in the COVID-19 vaccination campaign.”The Deloitte study, “Securing Trust in the Global COVID-19 Supply Chain,” argues that, in addition to industry collaboration and transparent communication, “embracing GS1 standards adds an element of trust at all levels of the supply chain – a trust that ultimately extends to the patients themselves”. GS1 global standards enable pharmaceutical manufacturers, distributing companies and healthcare providers to follow protocols and safety measures critical to ensuring public trust and confidence, both in the vaccine itself and the ability to roll out vaccinations safely.Barcodes carrying GS1 standards uniquely and securely identify medical products, including vaccines, from laboratories and clinical trials to point of administration. GS1 standards bring transparency and help to improve supply chain coordination, decreasing the risk of vaccine diversion, date expiration and fake vaccines proliferation. While the adoption of GS1 standards continues to expand in the healthcare field, they are not yet universally applied. The Deloitte study calls vaccine identification information (such as product identifier, lot number, and expiration date) “essential for healthcare providers to administer vaccines with confidence,” noting that, “the WHO recommends that all vaccines be identified with this data in a standardised barcode.” GAVI and UNICEF have also required the use of GS1 standards on the secondary packages of vaccines.Miguel Lopera, President and CEO at GS1’s Global Office noted, “an unprecedented level of research, collaboration and investment has brought hope in the form of Covid-19 vaccines. The world now faces, however, an enormous distribution and administration challenge where global identification standards have a critical role to play. Countries around the world are implementing massive vaccination campaigns under enormous time pressure, all while the virus continues to kill thousands of people every day. Global standards can help to relieve the pressure on the healthcare industry and reduce the chances for error. GS1 stands ready to help all stakeholders succeed in this critical operation.”Greg Reh, Global Life Sciences & Health Care Industry Leader, Deloitte, added, “For vaccine developers, healthcare stakeholders and society at large, the level of transparency and public trust will determine Covid-19 vaccine acceptance and confidence. The continued adoption of global standards from organisations like GS1 are helping to instill that confidence in the Covid-19 vaccines.” Today more than 70 countries have healthcare regulations or trading partner requirements for which industry uses GS1 standards. These countries rely on GS1 DataMatrix two-dimensional (2D) barcodes that can encode vaccine identification information to help reduce errors and enable traceability. As some countries are experiencing tracking difficulties linking vaccines to patients at point of administration, the Deloitte report notes that “it is important to identify and label the vaccines capturing precisely which patient received which vaccine, and when.” Globally unique identification and GS1 barcoding can support that critical task.Further information can be found on https://www.gs1.org/industries/healthcare/trustendsAbout GS1 HealthcareGS1 Australia works in Healthcare to support adoption and implementation of interoperable GS1 standards within the Australian healthcare industry to enhance patient safety, and operational and supply chain efficiencies.

At the online event, Yiannas presented an FDA initiative called the New Era of Smarter Food Safety. He also talked about a proposed food traceability rule, which is now out for public comment, that includes a list of foods for which there would be additional record-keeping requirements, including cheese, seafood, fruit, vegetables and herbs.Yiannas commented, “GS1 has been a critical partner for me, both in my many years in the private sector and now in the public sector. They've done ground-breaking work paving the way for what I believe is a new future where foods will be tracked and monitored from farm to plate, no matter where they're produced in the world.” Maria Palazzolo, CEO of GS1 Australia, said it is good to see that the important subject of traceability is having its day in the sun.“GS1 has been committed to true traceability for a long time and it is now having the focus that it deserves,” she said.“Consumers are becoming much smarter about the products they’re purchasing and consuming. They want more information. They want to know that their products are safe and that companies that produce those products have good traceability systems in place.“We believe it is GS1's responsibility to help industry have the ability and the tools, and by using global data standards, to have true interoperability that will provide that confidence to consumers.“We’re committed to support every organisation that has taken traceability as a serious initiative.”Mark Booth, CEO of Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) said the FDA briefing demonstrated a good example of international collaboration.Common global challenges and lessons “Despite the distance between our countries and different regulatory agencies around the globe, there are common challenges and lessons that can be learned in how those challenges are addressed in different economies,” Booth said.“In the Australia and New Zealand context, the landscape in which the food supply operates has changed remarkably since FSANZ was established just over 20 years ago.“Changes have been driven by a range of factors such as shifting consumer expectations, stronger societal focuses on diet, health and well-being, and more complex international food supply chains that extend across our region and globally.“There’s also been an increased pace of technological change and industry innovation, plus significant technical change in traceability,” he added.Modern times require modern approachesDeputy FDA Commissioner Yiannas predicts that there will be more changes in the food system over the next 10 years than we've seen in the past 20 or 30.He says that to succeed in these modern times, we need modern approaches. To this end, the FDA launched an initiative in April 2019 called a New Era of Smarter Food Safety. A blueprint outlining goals over the next 10 years was released on July 13, 2020.“This is not a tagline or slogan but is truly is a new way of thinking and new way of working,” he said.“The big picture is that we have to bend the curve of foodborne illness and provide safe and sustainable food for consumers worldwide. Food safety is mainly about public health, but it's also about consumer trust.”He recalled an outbreak of E. coli infections in the Fall of 2018 that resulted in romaine lettuce being pulled off store shelves all over the United States right before the Thanksgiving holiday because the source of the outbreak had not yet been identified. “The damage that does to consumer trust is hard to measure.” The power of transparency“What we are really talking about in terms of food traceability is greater transparency in the food system,” Yiannas said. “I call food traceability the Achilles heel of today's food system and a game changer because it provides this very powerful motivating factor, transparency. Transparency of where foods come, how they're produced, how they travel from farm to store.“Transparency will lead to efficiencies, greater sustainability, greater safety, consumer confidence and trust.“Under FDA’s New Era of Smarter Food Safety, our first step in this journey is to propose the food traceability rule that is now out for public comment. We're accepting comments until January 21, although the comment period may be extended.“A significant feature of the proposal is the term ‘traceability lot code’ and we are advocating that the traceability lot shouldn’t change unless the food is actually transformed to becomes different, rather than just changing hands.“I encourage you to visit the US FDA website (fda.gov) and download a copy of the proposed food traceability rule.“Food is a global asset and scaling food traceability isn't something that any one entity can do alone. It's going to require collaboration,” Yiannas added.The FDA briefing was made possible by GS1 Australia's National Traceability Advisory Group and Food Standards Australia New Zealand, supported by Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA), Australian Food and Grocery Council (AFGC) and PMA Australia-New Zealand Ltd.

Customers are feeling lied to and over marketed to. Brands are not sending authentic messages to their customers which prevents them from activating the path to re-purchase. The irony is that their most profitable customer is a returning customer.”Unfortunately, the research also revealed that:* 77 per cent believe that new customers receive better incentives than loyal customers. * 55 per cent don’t believe they are rewarded for their loyalty.* 63 per cent believe they should be rewarded for referrals.* 82 per cent could be tempted by a competitor.“Brands are missing out on significant opportunities by alienating their most profitable customers. It costs a lot more to acquire a new customer than it does to retain an existing one. It’s ludicrous that brands today are still offering new customers a better deal.” said James.However, it’s not all bad news with 64 per cent of customers loyal to a brand that doesn’t have a loyalty program.Invisible customer a missed opportunityAnother mistake being made by brands is shown in the telling statistic that 51 per cent of customers did not receive any form of communication after their first purchase, even though they shared their contact details.In terms of customer communications:* 61 per cent believe that stores are pushy in their marketing communications.* 51 per cent believe they are being remarketed to, too often.* 48 per cent believe they are being emailed too often.* 45 per cent believe that brands are not targeting them in a relevant way. “It’s like the customer is invisible,” said James. “Customers feel that when brands do speak to them, it's a half truth. We were really surprised to hear just how vocal these customers were about how brands engage with them.”Customology commissioned the research to learn how customers really feel, what they value and how they want to be recognised and rewarded. Experienced global marketer and international keynote lecturer and speaker, Joe Talcott, believes many marketers will be shocked to learn how their customers are genuinely feeling and behaving in regards to their brand. “However, I believe it’s a shock that is desperately needed. Customer loyalty cannot be purchased. And customers’ lives and interests reach far beyond the relationship they have with any brand. This research is a wake-up call to brands that have allowed customer communications to become rote, predictable and annoying; which I am sure is the opposite of their intended purpose,” Talcott said.Danielle Duell, founder and CEO of People with Purpose, said, “I think that companies sometimes forget their original purpose. They get distracted by quick-win initiatives, which is not sustainable. At the heart of loyalty is trust and it’s important that brands work consistently to gain and retain the trust of their customers. Their purpose should be present in every customer interaction, reminding their customers of why they exist and what they stand for.”Customology advocates that authenticity starts with the first communication. The worst experience a customer should have with a brand is their first experience. Every interaction from then on should get better and better. Brands need to remember to treat their customers as customers, not as transactions.Businesses who don’t do this risk losing valuable customers who have access to a profound number of alternative options. According to Mark James, businesses should look at the best channels - not just the cheapest, to continue engagement, retention and influence behaviour.“The most important aspect of communication is to make all the messages relevant and tailored to the customer, and not to bombard them. There are so many opportunities to continue the conversation; but it has to be an authentic message, sent at the right time and via the right channel.”“Smart competitors are looking for every opportunity to acquire more customers. Brands with bad customer retention strategies are most at risk. Talking ‘to’ customers, not ‘at’ them like transactions is the key to building long-term success and trust between the customer and the brand,” James added.The research report, titled The Unspoken Customer, can be downloaded from customology.com.auendsNote: Customology has just been awarded the ‘Regional Loyalty Champion Award for Asia Pacific’ in the 2020 Global Loyalty Magazine Awards, which was presented in London by The Loyalty Magazine Awards.About Customology:Customology is an end-to-end customer lifecycle management agency.

With scores of accolades and awards for previous models, the new SENEC.Home V3 Hybrid solar battery storage system has achieved an Australian first: the first hybrid solar battery to win an award.“This latest New Product Innovation award recognises innovative consumer products that offer a point of difference from their competitors,” said Patricia Cavalcanti, chief operating officer for SENEC Australia.“Over the past few years, we have established a qualified and certified network of retailers and installers across the nation so we are geared up for what we believe will be one of the fastest growing business segments.“There are huge incentives to install a solar battery,” she said. “While most PV systems generate energy during daylight hours, most people are at work during the day and need their energy at night and before the sun comes up. “A SENEC rechargeable solar battery stores excess energy from rooftop solar panels rather than sending it back to the grid for next to nothing. By using more of the energy produced, SENEC users can almost triple their solar independence and reduce power bills by up to 90 per cent. “This means homes can use free solar power 24 hours a day, including nights, cloudy days and even during blackouts,” she added.A smartphone app enables users to take control of the power supply, view the performance of their entire system including solar production, and allows them to track their savings as they go.senec.com.auends* While there are 2.23 million or 20 per cent of homes with rooftop solar panels in Australia, only three per cent of these had batteries connected at the same time. In three years, the number of homes with solar is expected to be three million or 30 per cent of Australian homes.About SENEC:SENEC is one of the world's most popular brands for innovative energy and storage solutions.

This award recognises innovative consumer products that offer a point of difference from their competitors.SENEC is one of the world’s most popular brands for innovative energy and storage solutions. Following a decade of domestic success, SENEC established in Australia three years ago, becoming a key focus for the German manufacturer.Having established a retail network throughout the country, SENEC is now poised to become a household name in one of the world’s fastest growing storage markets.With more than 40,000 SENEC battery systems installed worldwide, SENEC has been repeatedly honoured as a top PV brand for power storage and recently received a prestigious 2020 German Excellence Award.While SENEC is at the forefront of energy innovation, it is also leading the way in peer-to-peer trading, EV recharging and cloud technology. Plus, for all of the installed batteries worldwide, they have zero critical failures making them also one of the safest.A ‘My SENEC Portal’ monitors the performance of the system installed giving SENEC installers and the manufacturer detailed backend status updates every five minutes.The SENEC.App enables users to take control of their power supply, view the performance of their entire system including solar production, and allows them to track their savings as they go.Patrick Duignan, general manager of SENEC Australia, said one of the innovative features of the SENEC.Home V3 Hybrid is the combination of a PV and battery inverter in one single, easy-to-install system.“The development of this new hybrid inverter is testament to the continuous improvement process leading to the latest transformerless inverter design that delivers high efficiency. “The DC-power from the PV panels is converted to DC-power directly by using a highly-efficient bidirectional DC/DC converter. By using a transformerless inverter to convert the energy from PV or battery to AC-power to compensate the house load, we have significantly increased efficiency thereby eliminating typical transformer losses such as copper and eddy current.“It is these innovations that no doubt contributed to SENEC winning the ABA New Product Innovation Award,” Duignan added.The SENEC.Home V3 Hybrid solar battery offers home owners extensive benefits including 90 per cent solar power self-sufficiency, even in blackouts. The combined photovoltaic inverter and battery inverter of this model delivers savings of approximately $3,000 per installation due to its simplified installation and design aggregation.The V3 comes with a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty and an optional extended 20-year warranty. This is expected to be a major impetus for millions of homeowners with rooftop solar to take the next logical step and add a battery. senec.com.auends About SENEC:SENEC is one of the world's most popular brands for innovative energy and storage solutions.

Pandemic aside, government spending needs to increase by at least 7 per cent of GDP 2020-10-18T23:50:36Z pandemic-aside-government-spending-needs-to-increase-by-at-least-7-per-cent-of-gdp Dr Marc Robinson, an Australian, Swiss-based international authority on government finances documents how and why advanced nations are headed for a new era of bigger government in his latest book, Bigger Government. A member of the OECD Advisory Panel on Budgeting and Public Expenditures and former staff economist at the International Monetary Fund, Dr Robinson has advised more than 30 countries on budgeting reforms. Dr Robinson says although government spending has surged during the pandemic, nearly all of this extra spending is temporary. “The real problems for governments in Australia and elsewhere are the powerful long-term spending pressures that will necessarily make governments bigger. It’s how we manage the growth that will be crucial to our future,” he said.“Government health spending, which is responsible for approximately 70 per cent of total health expenditure, will need to grow enormously. But not so much because of the need to build better defences against future pandemics. Rather, it is mainly because of the technological revolution that is gathering pace in the health sector, particularly on precision medicine and other new technologies.“Governments will also be compelled to spend big on fighting global warming, fixing ailing infrastructure and providing adequate aged care for rapidly greying populations. The combined effect of these and other spending pressures threatens to drive budget deficits and government debt through the roof. “There is no way that substantial tax rises can be avoided. In this challenging context, government spending needs to be focussed on addressing real problems rather than imaginary ones.”These and other topics such as a Universal Basic Income, elderly care provision, which is extremely poor in Australia compared to countries such as Japan, the Netherlands and Germany, climate change and infrastructure deficits are covered in Marc Robinson’s new book, Bigger Government, The Future of Government Expenditure in Advanced Economies (376 pages, Arolla Press).This far-sighted book is about the future of public spending in advanced economies over the time horizon of the next 30 years. Its central proposition is that government is set to get considerably bigger, growing in most countries by at least seven per cent of gross domestic product between now and the middle of the century. This rise will be triggered by major external forces and pressure points that will be very difficult to resist.Large increases in government spending will pose a major problem for future governments and for all mainstream poles of political opinion. Robinson’s book examines the challenges and how to cope with the prospect of the relentless rise in government spending.“With government debt shooting up in the wake of the pandemic, we must focus on the right priorities,” Dr Robinson said. “An important message to heed is that those on the right need to abandon pipedreams of small government and those on the left need to recognise that money for costly projects won’t exist.”Bigger Government is available at all good bookstores in hardback ($36.99) and paperback ($24.99). More information from: biggergovernment.comBook Reviews:"This deeply-researched and brilliantly-argued book is an honest, clear-minded assessment of the fiscal future. Robinson's mastery of program details and socioeconomic trends makes this essential reading." Allen Schick, Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution and Professor Emeritus, School of Public Policy, University of Maryland. “This book represents a path-breaking original contribution to our understanding of the future of public finances in advanced economies. It challenges traditional dogmas on drivers of public spending and instead suggests that irrespective of political leaning of governments, advancements in health care technology, delayed actions on climate change and long-term care will drive public spending through the roof in coming decades in advanced countries. This book is a wake-up call for policy makers to take action now on emerging challenges or face the wrath of electorates in justifying higher taxes in future. It is a must-read book for policy makers, practitioners, scholars and students.” Anwar Shah, Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution and Director, Governance Program, World Bank Institute (2004-2009).Notes: Dr Marc Robinson is available for interview and can write a tailored and exclusive op-ed for selected media organisations (selection of topics available).

She is director of the Burns Service of Western Australia, Perth Children’s and Fiona Stanley Hospitals. She is also director of the Burn Injury Research Unit at UWA and Director of the Fiona Wood Foundation.A former Australian of the Year and winner of a Clunies Ross Award for contributions to Medical Science in Australia, Prof Wood co-developed ReCell, a spray on skin device that is widely used throughout the world to treat burn victims.Cannenta’s patented wound care technology is expected to significantly accelerate wound recovery with the ability to come at an appealing low price point. This will make it attractive for underdeveloped countries and anywhere healthcare budgets are constrained.The treatment, currently labelled as 2dDR, has demonstrated effectiveness in lab animals and is looking to commence initial clinical trials with the University of Western Australia. Cannenta has the exclusive global licence for 2dDR.Prof Wood said she is intrigued by the simplicity of 2dDR and looks forward to exploring how it will perform in a clinical environment.“Should the clinical trials prove successful, because of its low price point there will be strong demand for this type of treatment not only in Australia but around the world where health budgets are increasingly constrained,” she said.The advanced wound care market represents $US19B and is growing rapidly as diabetes increases resulting in a prevalence of diabetic ulcers.“There is a huge unmet need for affordable, effective treatments,” said Iain Ralph, executive director of Cannenta.“Cannenta’s solution delivers accelerated wound recovery through a unique sugar-based factor in angiogenic wound care products. Sugar isomer 2 deoxy-D-ribose (2dDR) has been found to naturally stimulate angiogenesis (blood vessel formation) in laboratory tests and shows similar effectiveness to VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor). VEGF is known to be a primary driver of angiogenesis but is very difficult to reliably apply topically and is very expensive.”“Significant work has already been undertaken using 2dDR in alginate dressings so this is a likely candidate for initial human efficacy trials. Alternatives could include a number of other natural or synthetic hydrogel products from which 2dDR could be incorporated and released.“Cannenta is looking to collaborate with an established wound care business to incorporate the 2dDR technology in an existing skin replacement scaffold, which would be suitable for severe full thickness wounds.“The predominant value to the patients and treatment centres comes through the reduction in treatment time and reduction in the risk of complications, which can lead to limb amputations.“We greatly value the knowledge Professor Wood is able to share with Cannenta to help get 2dDR from clinical trials into production,” Iain Ralph added.cannenta.comEndsAbout Cannenta:Cannenta has the exclusive, perpetual global licence to a unique sugar-based factor in angiogenic wound care products for chronic wounds such as ulcers and burns. Currently labelled 2dDR, the technology emanates out of the highly respected Centre for Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering at the University of Sheffield, UK, in collaboration with COMSATS University, Lahore, Pakistan. 2dDR has the potential to be used widely by clinicians as a first line of treatment for moderate chronic wounds to assist in preventing development of more serious and very difficult-to-treat severe wounds. https://www.cannenta.com/Media Enquiries:Issued on behalf of Cannenta Pty Ltd by WMC Public Relations.
