  3. Agent desktop that will support and resize any/all web applications, be it our own, or third party
  4. Multi-tenant wall to wall, supporting 10,000+ agents
  5. Sytel or third party conversational AI with call routing supported by award winning Sytel AI Dialer
  6. Reporting that in a single view that will summarise KPIs for all agent activities, across all media
  7. Open APIs offering a choice of presentation - REST, native sockets, Websockets or a high-level .NET library
  8. Chat messaging connectors for the most popular platforms like WhatsApp, Facebook and the option to add unlimited chat plugins to existing chat platforms via Sytel Open APIs
  9. Customer interaction history at the agent’s fingertips, giving a view of previous interactions regardless of media type
  10. Home working proven in all continents around the world
“Oh, and we also give you world class support, unbeatable pricing and a product that just about deploys itself,” said McKinlay.
“We have been working with Sytel for many years,” said Naresh Kothari, President of Intertec Systems in Dubai, “and we just love the way they are continually innovating to keep us ahead of the market.”

EaPConnect project enters second phase, building on past success to support research and education in the Eastern Partnership

core facts
The Eastern Partnership Connect project, EaPConnect, enters a second phase from 1 July 2020. Coordinated by the GÉANT Association, the 60-month EU-funded ‘EU4Digital: Connecting Research and Education Communities’ project (EaPConnect2) will bring together the research and education (R&E) communities from European Union (EU) and Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries and reduce the digital divide.
The new project will build on the achievements of the first EaPConnect project, which brought greater integration with GÉANT activities, services and networks, and benefits to research, education and wider society in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine:
  • Internet connectivity prices were reduced by around 60% in Belarus and Ukraine and by around 80% in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia, thanks to procurement activities carried out in collaboration with GÉANT.
  • Internet connectivity to the pan-European GÉANT R&E network increased tenfold in capacity in Georgia, Azerbaijan, Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus and 7-fold in Armenia, as compared to the start of the first project.
  • The number of connected institutions grew significantly in Georgia (17%), Armenia (26%) and Azerbaijan (58%) and around 800,000 students, researchers and staff at universities, research institutes and other connected institutions can now access EaPConnect partner networks and services.
  • Researchers from fields as diverse as high-energy physics, seismology, climatology, biomedical sciences and speech synthesis and recognition made use of the provided networks and growing number of services.
  • The project created and strengthened human networks with around 530 participants at four ‘EaPEC’ conferences and 30 training events and workshops, which gave around 500 participants the opportunity to meet and learn together.
The second EaPConnect project will extend the network infrastructure to scale-up scientific exchange across borders, increase the use of services implemented under EaPConnect and offer new services to enhance international R&E cooperation, and strengthen the position of EaP national research and education networks (NRENs) in their national R&E ecosystems.
Funding and partners
The project is funded under the EU4Digital initiative of the European Union. The European Commission’s Directorate General for Neighbourhoods and Enlargements Negotiations (DG NEAR) is contributing 95% (€10m) towards the costs, providing funding to the second EaPConnect project under Grant Agreement number ENI/2019/407-452; the remaining 5% is being co-funded by the six beneficiary countries.
The beneficiary partners in the second EaPConnect project are IIAP NAS RA (Armenia), IIT of ANAS (Azerbaijan), UIIP NASB (Belarus), GRENA (Georgia), RENAM (Moldova) and URAN (Ukraine). Co-beneficiary partners are DFN (Germany), EENet of HITSA (Estonia), LITNET (Lithuania), GRNET (Greece), GARR (Italy), PSNC (Poland), RoEduNet (Romania) and SURF (the Netherlands). The partners will work together in further conferences, workshops, mentorship relationships and other collaborative activities to achieve the project objectives and ensure the sustainability of research and education networking in the Eastern Partnership region.

EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum invites #EPICIrish stories for a new exhibition

COME A CRISIS, COME IRELAND’S CALL. The Irish are answering the call around the world to make a difference during the COVID-19 crisis.
As we move into the next chapter of Ireland’s story, EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum invites people to share their #EPICIrish stories for a new exhibition.
Watch the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMhNFgOLgTg. Download from https://www.dropbox.com/sh/obz7m26592kiff3/AAB5dM-_MulR2OMHKuQWvvy3a?dl=0
As an emigrating nation, the Irish have always been separated by land, seas and oceans. To many, we’re a nation defined by distance. Despite this, we’ve done alright. We’ve become politicians and scientists; built cities, developed schools and hospitals and invented colour photography and submarines. There’s always been a collective movement whether in Bandon or Boston to contribute to the local community, county and country.
COVID-19 has stopped us in our tracks. Despite enforced separation, we’re seeing that same Irishness shine through. Volunteers helping the elderly, entertaining the isolated, feeding the hungry and bringing us closer by staying apart.
“No one can be certain of when these uncertain times will come to a close. As a story-telling museum, EPIC is hoping that we can collectively document the impact of the Irish world-wide during the crisis. These stories will form a new chapter in our nation’s story. We are inspired by Dr. Mike Ryan’s calm but consistently brilliant rallying cries, Irish medics travelling thousands of miles to come home to work and so many other supportive acts” said Dr Patrick Greene, Museum Director and CEO.
The stories will document and celebrate the difference Irish people at home and abroad are making in response to COVID-19.
EPIC asks people to share any stories that show the difference the Irish continue to make at home and abroad, no matter the size, with the #EPICIrish hashtag and on their website at https://dublin.epicchq.com/share-your-covid19-story

Southampton, UK: 28th January 2020 - Clearvision, SoftComply and Comalatech today announced the release of MediCompli - their compliance solution for the Medical Device industry. Based on Atlassian Confluence, this medical device compliance solution includes a pre-configured Quality Management System together with out-of-the-box FDA 21 CFR 11 compliant document approval workflows and e-signatures, all of which fully customisable for additional workflows and compliance requirements.
MediCompli is the result of SoftComply’s industry expertise, Comalatech’s powerful approval workflows and Clearvision’s Atlassian and Cloud experience. Content-wise, users get a Quality Manual, a Quality Policy, 17 SOPs and 50 document templates that are based on ISO 13485, ISO 14971, IEC 62304 and FDA 21 CFR 820. All documents are pre-filled and have embedded guidance to fast-track the development and implementation of their compliant Quality System.
Dr. Marion Lepmets, SoftComply’s co-founder and CEO explains how MediCompli helps companies of all sizes comply with regulation - “With an increasing amount of software in medical devices and with software increasingly in the safety-critical role in these devices, an electronic compliance solution that is fully integrated into the toolset that software developers are already using - the Atlassian stack, is finally available.

Partnering with Clearvision and SoftComply on MediCompli lets teams utilise approval workflows in a single, complete solution for document compliance.”
Hosting and supporting MediCompli in Clearvision’s AWS-powered cloud service was a natural decision for Gerry Tombs, CEO of the ISO27001 certified Atlassian partner: “Cloud is the way forward for most businesses, especially those that are built on continuous innovation and rapid growth - such as medical devices companies.
