Shopbrain Solves #1 Frustration With Online Shopping By Giving Users More Power to Find The Best Prices Wherever They Shop

Consumer Champion Expands The Power Of Its Shopping Assistant To Smartphones

TORONTO, March 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Shopbrain, the AI-powered shopping assistant is taking the power of its browser extension and putting it in the hands of consumers with a new innovative app. Now Shopbrain users can find the best prices in-store or from the comfort of their home.  According to a recent survey, 51% of shoppers are frustrated with overpaying when different prices are listed across different retailers for the same item. To address this growing problem, the app’s barcode scanning technology doubles down to give shoppers complete control to find the best price for their favorite items in store or at home.

As with the browser extension, the app is free, doesn’t require user data and scans billions of products across 10,000 retailers automatically to identify the best price. Shopbrain’s expansion is an innovative necessity as 80 percent of shoppers use mobile phones inside of a physical store to either look up product reviews, compare prices or find alternative store locations*.

“It’s about empowering the consumer. When shoppers search for their favorite products online or in-store, they can’t guarantee that they are seeing the best price. Now they can. In fact, in the month of February alone, we found our users a better price over 50 percent of the time, with potential savings on average amounting to $50 per user,” said James Cunningham, CEO and Co-Founder of Shopbrain 

The app is easy to download in the app store and available on both iOS and Android.  Now, users can immediately identify when an item is at its best price with the quick scan of a product’s barcode in every store.

“We are thrilled that our service is now on smartphone devices, allowing consumers to use it anywhere, at any time. We are now bringing immediate price and transparent quality to shoppers whenever and however they shop,” continued Cunningham.

Shopbrain’s parent company, Yroo, was founded by James Cunningham and Nick Zhu. The Shopbrain AI-powered shopping assistant technology has expanded beyond its browser extension to a barcode app, the latest product development from the company.

To ensure you don’t overpay again, consumers can visit Shopbrain.com, the Chrome Web Store or app stores for iOS and Android to use this money-saving feature.

DocuSign invests $15M in Seal Software to accelerate adoption of AI in analyzing agreements

SAN FRANCISCO, March 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — On the heels of launching the DocuSign Agreement Cloud—its suite of products and integrations for digitally transforming how organizations prepare, sign, act on, and manage agreements—DocuSign (NASDAQ: DOCU) today announced a $15 million investment in artificial intelligence software leader Seal Software.

DocuSign, Inc. (PRNewsFoto/DocuSign, Inc.)

The news expands the partnership formed between DocuSign and Seal Software early last year, which saw Seal’s artificial intelligence-based agreement discovery, extraction, and analytics solutions offered as a pre-integrated extension to DocuSign eSignature.

This builds on the steps DocuSign has already taken to bring intelligence to its suite of products—including the acquisition of the IP rights of machine learning startup Appuri, another move centered on AI technology, in December 2017; and the acquisition of SpringCM, with document indexing and text search, in September 2018. It also reflects the increasing importance that AI technologies play in helping to automate and connect a company’s entire system of agreement—allowing business to be done faster with less risk, lower costs, and better experiences for customers, partners, and employees.

“AI lets organizations analyze their agreements for hidden risks and opportunities in new ways,” said Ron Hirson, chief product officer at DocuSign. “As we have continued to invest in adding intelligence to our suite of products, this investment in Seal’s discovery and analytics is just another step in making our Agreement Cloud offering smarter.”

“We are thrilled by DocuSign’s confidence in Seal Software as a partner and now as a strategic investor, as we build the next generation of agreement discovery and analysis tools using artificial intelligence,” said Ulf Zetterberg, co-founder and CEO of Seal Software. “Working together, we will continue to unlock the full potential of all the agreements that are pervasive across every size and type of business.”

Seal Software currently powers two DocuSign Agreement Cloud product extensions: DocuSign Total Search and DocuSign Intelligent Insights. Together, these enable DocuSign users to instantly and easily find agreements, regardless of their origin or storage location. Users can then compare sections of similar agreements to identify inconsistent contract terms, areas of exposure, and potential revenue leakage. They can also review auto-extracted terms and concepts to ensure compliance and minimize exposure to risk. These capabilities can help save companies millions of dollars while continuing to reduce corporate risk.

Dalkia and METRON Sign a Partnership Agreement for a Digital Solution to Accelerate Manufacturers’ Energy Transition

PARIS, March 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The partnership agreement was signed by METRON, an innovative digital company, and Dalkia, to provide a new energy and environmental efficiency management solution for industrial plants that is both customisable and suitable for all business sectors.

The Dalkia Analytics powered by METRON solution allies Dalkia’s knowledge of energy efficiency with METRON’s cutting-edge energy intelligence technology, combining big data with artificial intelligence. Manufacturers will thus be able to continuously optimise their facilities’ energy efficiency, saving up to 15% on their energy bill in the process.

Manufacturers consume almost a quarter of France’s energy and a third of its electricity1. Multiple schemes have been launched to assist this sector in decarbonising its business activities in line with standard ISO 50001 which promotes the implementation of an energy management system. The Dalkia Analytics powered by METRON solution is designed to help manufacturers with this process, facilitating their energy transition and increasing their competitiveness.

Chairwoman and CEO of Dalkia Sylvie Jéhanno says: “The launch of this innovative solution, created in partnership with METRON, will help consolidate our manufacturing clients’ performance during their energy and digital transitions. This new service is enabling manufacturers to enter Industry 4.0: they are optimising their facilities’ operating systems, saving energy and minimising their carbon footprint.”

I’m proud that a leader in the French energy services industry has chosen METRON technology to take its clients even further in their energy transition process. This non-equity-based partnership will also allow us to offer our clients new services and to rapidly grow our business in France, whilst also continuing with our overseas expansion which already generates 75% of our turnover. Our partnership with Dalkia thus constitutes a key step in our growth as a company,” adds Vincent Sciandra, CEO and founder of METRON.

Dalkia, working with you to step up your sustainable energy performance.

Dalkia, a subsidiary of the EDF group, assists its clients with their energy and digital transformations thanks to its dual lines of business: the promotion of local renewable energy sources and energy saving. Dalkia offers its clients tailor-made solutions for each building, each city, each community and each industrial site to help them meet the energy transition challenge and to make them smarter.

METRON aspires to transform energy into a profit centre within the industrial sector (www.metronlab.com).

Using its energy intelligence solution, the METRON-EVA® Factory platform (Energy Virtual Assistant) draws on the many data sources that already exist within factories and employs cutting-edge technology to proactively identify opportunities for energy optimisation and to connect clients with decentralised energy assets. It employs more than 80 energy experts, data scientists and specialised energy engineers in Europe, Central and South America, the Middle East and Asia. They help manufacturers from all business sectors to maximise the value of their data and to implement their energy optimisation process.

Tyme Commerce Delivers AI-Driven End-to-End Food Platform

SAN FRANCISCO, March 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The restaurant industry is undergoing a transformative change, and San Francisco-based startup Tyme Commerce has developed the most innovative under-the-hood systems to enable restaurants to successfully navigate that shift. Tyme’s end-to-end artificial intelligence driven food platform innovates on two fronts: Simplifying food for large employee groups and establishing a restaurant-to-restaurant marketplace which increases revenues and creates entrepreneurial opportunities for specialty providers.

Restaurants have seen a dramatic shift away from phone to online ordering, with online delivery and pickup apps gaining popularity. The first wave of simple online apps however, target individual ordering, and fall short when used in a corporate setting where a company may be trying to organize lunch for several employees, all with different preferences.

The Tyme platform curates and manages workplace food programs with a highly personalized solution, along with a “digital concierge” named Emily that caters to each person’s dietary preferences. “Ordering food in a work environment can quickly get confusing, especially with different preferences in a large group,” said Bobby Marhamat, CEO of Tyme Commerce. “Emily is a flawless concierge who remembers each person’s preferences, is able to make intelligent suggestions and can easily manage orders from dozens of employees at once, all in a seamless app that really can please everyone.”

Tyme Commerce’s platform is truly all-encompassing, and it doesn’t stop with Emily. Tyme has also rolled out a restaurant-to-restaurant marketplace, the first of its kind which allows restaurants to expand their offerings and increase revenue, while also providing a solution to smaller startups in need of a market.

With a vibrant restaurant marketplace offering everything from specialty high-end coffee beans to hand-made chocolate truffles, even a smaller restaurant can offer an eclectic mix of bespoke goods to enhance the menu. The marketplace features a growing list of some of the most sought-after products, including super-premium ice cream from Los Angeles-based Coolhaus and for those who long for an authentic New York experience, old-world specialties directly from Sarge’s Deli in Manhattan. 

“Our marketplace solves two problems,” said Marhamat. “First, restaurants wanting to provide specialty items that they don’t make in-house will now have a ready-made marketplace that goes beyond the standard offerings of large restaurant suppliers. Second, smaller providers offering unique items such as specialty desserts have often faced an uphill battle in finding a market. With our marketplace, these specialty providers will have a ready-made platform for sales and expansion.”
