Xyte Hardware-as-a-Service Platform Brings Cloud Services Breakthrough to Hardware Manufacturing Businesses

Xyte

Xyte secures a $6.4M funding round led by SCapital to launch the first Hardware-as-a-Service cloud platform, and moves hardware industries beyond traditional models to new profitable, subscription-based sales Business partners Omer Brookstein and Boris Dinkevich came from two very separate industries on the way to founding Xyte, the innovative company behind the first Hardware-as-a-Service (HaaS) cloud platform. Brookstein, an Audio-Video industry veteran, spent nearly 15 years working in different roles at Crestron Electronics. Dinkevich worked in a much different software development world, where he built advanced cloud applications for large high-tech firms. Their common interest in the cloud as a transformational business driver brought them together to establish Xyte (formerly known as SyncPro) in early 2020. Xyte offers hardware manufacturers an end-to-end cloud-based platform to run their entire HaaS businesses, better support their channels and customers, and develop new recurring revenue streams. This includes support for what Xyte calls “Digital Products,” an innovative new approach that allows manufacturers to remotely enable device features through subscriptions. Xyte’s innovation allows customers to elastically scale their products on one hand, while helping manufacturers simplify their inventory management and capture new upsell opportunities. “Cloud technologies have disrupted nearly every industry,” said Brookstein, CEO of Xyte. “Different industries are renowned for hardware innovation, but there is an enormous gap between hardware suppliers and modern cloud applications and services. Xyte paves the way for hardware suppliers of any industry to modernize their offerings, and provide their integration partners and end customers with technology platforms that will enable new services at an unparalleled time and cost-to-market.” Brookstein adds that while there are many opportunities that hardware manufacturers could pursue for growth, none offer more potential than HaaS. However, many of them struggle to capture this opportunity due to the enormous resources needed to develop such a solution. “People often think of HaaS as a subscription-based or financial model. However, successfully operating an HaaS business requires much more. It’s a paradigm change from customer acquisition to customer retention, and Xyte offers the complete toolset required to do so, from remotely supporting customers and resolving issues more efficiently through offering managed services, analyzing device usage and more – all in one unified platform.” To support and accelerate the development of the platform, Xyte partnered with SCapital, managed by former Sequoia and Intel Capital partners (Haim Sadger and Aya Peterburg), who led a $6.4M financial round. Workplace by Xyte Xyte offers a complete platform that truly bridges hardware to the cloud, and invites innovation and business development for all users. That includes offering a new agnostic platform specifically for the professional Audio-Video (AV)industry called Workplace by Xyte. Systems integrators and other service providers, which have free access to the platform, can now offer managed services for their customers, remotely managing and monitoring devices from a growing number of brands. Brookstein points to a new business model that AV test company MSolutions is developing based on Xyte’s platform as an excellent example of its revenue-generating value. The company starts by allowing its customers to subscribe to specific test applications, such as a log analyzer for an HDBaseT installation or IP testing for AV-over-IP applications directly from Xyte’s cloud. MSolutions will soon offer a full HaaS model, giving customers access to their award-winning device for a monthly fee, and benefit from full technical support through its dedicated Xyte portal. “Instead of buying a hardware test device, customers will soon be able to buy test services,” said Brookstein. “The customer still has the physical test device through the subscription period, but pays for usage of the applications enabled through Xyte. There is a hardware refresh after a pre-determined period if the subscription remains active; if the device fails, a replacement is shipped. And that customer can activate new test services on the Xyte portal at any time.” “Our open API ensures that anyone can connect to Xyte,” said Dinkevich, Xyte’s CTO. “Customers today in all industries demand open systems that don’t chain the user to proprietary products. Our platform is a wide-open universe that allows everyone to connect, everyone to configure their devices, and everyone to freely develop. There are no limits.” For more information on Xyte’s cloud platform and its Workplace by Xyte, and to schedule a demo, please contact Xyte’s sales team at https://xyte.io/. About Xyte Xyte is a revolutionary solution for hardware manufacturers, with a first-of-its-kind cloud platform that bridges the gap between hardware devices and modern cloud applications. Xyte’s award-winning offering provides device manufacturers with a comprehensive, white-labeled solution for managing their customers, resellers, and devices, enabling them to propose new subscription-based business models and realize the full potential of their connected products. The innovative yet easy-to-manage Xyte platform offers an extensive range of cloud-based services. Intuitive and forward-thinking, it’s a technology and business analytics solution specifically designed to give users a unique advantage in a competitive field, with access to real-time performance data and a powerful suite of business tools.

Global Employee Engagement Study Finds Only Half of Employees Happy at Work

Great Place to Work®

Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture and leader in certifying great employee experiences around the world, today announced the results of its 2021 Global Employee Engagement Benchmark study, a data-led analysis of employee satisfaction around the globe. The study surveyed over 14,000 workers across 37 countries to determine the average employee experience. The study found that only about half of employees worldwide are experiencing a great workplace, with little variation across regions. In the U.S. and Canada, just 53% of employees are reporting a positive experience at work. In Latin America, the highest-scoring region, 60% of employees report a positive employee experience. By comparison, Europe, the lowest-scoring region, saw 52% of employees reporting a positive experience. Source: Great Place to Work® Global Employee Engagement Benchmark study There were also few differences across industries. Hospitality saw the lowest score, with only 49% of employees reporting a positive experience, while all other industries in the study averaged between 54% and 60%. Employees rated their workplaces against 17 statements in Great Place to Work’s confidential Trust Index™ survey. The statements measure factors that contribute to a positive employee experience such as a sense of purpose, innovation opportunities, psychological safety, leadership and fairness. Within these findings, four challenges stood out as most common to workplaces today, with employees citing inequity, lack of meaningful connection, lack of purpose and poor leadership. “These experiences are sadly familiar to many employees,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Moreover, they’re hurting companies’ agility, innovation and performance.” The study shows that more than half of workers feel pay and promotions are handled unfairly. As well, 43% said they believe their coworkers don’t care for each other, 35% said they feel they can’t be themselves at work and 45% say their workplaces are not psychologically and emotionally healthy. Roughly half of all employees reported their leaders do not genuinely care for them as people, don’t involve them in decisions and fail to match their actions to their words. And nearly half of all employees said they do not intend to stay with their current workplace, nor are they willing to recommend their employer. By contrast, employee feedback data from companies that are Certified™ by Great Place to Work shows that when workplaces provide positive leadership, a sense of purpose and opportunity for meaningful connections with colleagues, employees’ intent to stay improves by 52%, while their willingness to recommend their employer to others increases by 65%. About Great Place to Work Great Place to Work is the global authority on workplace culture. Since 1992, they have surveyed more than 100 million employees around the world and used those deep insights to define what makes a great workplace: trust. Great Place to Work helps organizations quantify their culture and produce better business results by creating a high-trust work experience for all employees.

NMTC Coalition Urges White House and Congressional Leadership to Make the NMTC Permanent within the Final Federal Appropriations Package, As Passed by the House Budget Committee

New Markets Tax Credit Coalition

Today, the New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) Coalition, a national membership organization of Community Development Entities (CDEs) and investors organized to advocate on behalf of the NMTC, released a letter signed by 400 community development stakeholders to President Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, urging Democratic leadership to include provisions to make the New Markets Tax Credit Program permanent. The Coalition also supports additional NMTC enhancements approved by the House Ways and Means Committee in the budget reconciliation legislation. The Joint Committee on Taxation estimates the ten-year cost of the Ways and Means NMTC provisions at only $2.6 billion over ten years, while those funds will leverage an estimated $85 billion investment in economically distressed rural, urban, and tribal communities. These communities will benefit from improved services, increased private sector investment, and 700,000 new jobs at a federal cost of under $4,000 per job. “We strongly support making the NMTC permanent,” said Yvette Ittu, President of the NMTC Coalition and President of Cleveland Development Advisors. In February, Reps. Terri Sewell (D-AL), Tom Reed (R-NY), Sens. Ben Cardin (D-MD) and Roy Blunt (R-MO) introduced the New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) Extension Act of 2021. The legislation permanently extends NMTC at $5 billion in annual credit authority, adjusts that amount for inflation in future years and provides an exception from the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) for New Markets investments. In December 2020, Congress extended the NMTC for five years, which was the largest extension in the history of the Credit. Throughout its 20-year history, the NMTC has delivered more than $110 billion to rural and urban communities outside the economic mainstream, which has led to financing to more than 6,000 business and projects and over one million jobs. Establishing the NMTC as a permanent part of the tax code will provide certainty and further promote the in getting patient, flexible capital to low-income and marginalized communities, creating jobs, increasing economic opportunity, and improving lives at a time when the economic frailty of our underserved communities has never been more apparent. Established in 2000 in the Community Renewal Tax Relief Act (P.L.106-554), the New Markets Tax Credit is a bipartisan effort to stimulate investment and economic growth in low-income urban neighborhoods and rural communities. Since then, the New Markets Tax Credit has financed more than 6,500 projects and created over one million jobs in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. “Following devastating impacts from COVID-19, the New Markets Tax Credit is absolutely vital for many of America’s urban neighborhoods and rural communities and will provide billions of dollars for high-impact, community revitalization projects,” said Bob Rapoza, spokesperson for the NMTC Coalition. “Over the years, the credit has been instrumental in financing plant and equipment for small manufacturing businesses and patient flexible capital to other small businesses, hospitals, healthcare centers, homeless shelters and other transformative projects that improve communities, create jobs and economic opportunity. A permanent extension of NMTC will provide more certainty to private sector investors, which will result in better pricing and more subsidy to hard-to-finance, essential projects.” For examples of how the NMTC is making an impact in each state, see the NMTC Coalition’s newly released report, NMTC at Work in Communities Across America, featuring updated state statistics sheets on NMTC efficacy and more than 80 Tax Credit success stories. About New Markets Tax Credit Program The New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) was enacted in 2000 in an effort to stimulate private investment and economic growth in low-income urban neighborhoods and rural communities that lack access to the patient capital needed to support and grow businesses, create jobs, and sustain healthy local economies. Since its inception, the NMTC has generated more than one million jobs. Today, due to the NMTC, nearly $110 billion is hard at work in underserved communities in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.

National Partnership Action Fund Launches C4 Accountability Campaign Around Women’s Agenda

National Partnership Action Fund

Today, the National Partnership Action Fund announced that it is launching a campaign effort to ensure that the agenda that women and families voted for in the past election is carried out by policy makers. Recent polling has shown that paid family and medical leave is one of, if not the most, popular elements of any plan to help our economy rebuild amidst an ongoing pandemic. Women in particular have borne the brunt of the pandemic, with 3 million leaving the workforce, with one of the core reasons being a lack of ability to take leave to care for themselves and others. Yet the past few weeks have shown that women are still having to fight to be heard in the broader agenda. The Action Fund plans to engage in both grassroots and grasstops outreach in districts to ensure that the public knows who has stood up for their priorities, with elected officials being identified as She-roes or Zeros, to encourage and assist people in calling on their elected officials for action. The Fund will launch with a six-figure coffer with plans to raise additional funds from individuals and organizations who want to see Congress take stronger action for women’s priorities. “This past election women came out in larger numbers to support bold change,” said Lelaine Bigelow, Campaign Director of the National Partnership Action Fund. “We turned out in larger numbers than our male counterparts and we were the backbone of campaigns around the country. Yet we still have a culture that believes that infrastructure is only hard-hat jobs and that caregiving is women’s work and not worth investing in completely. We’re excited to launch this campaign to ensure that our elected officials hear loud and clear that we are watching and that we expect them to hold the line for women and families.” Contact Details Amaya Smith asmith@nationalpartnershipaction.org

Improving the Lives of Caregivers

YourUpdateTV

There will be more people over 65 than under 18 by 2030 -- the boomer generation is living longer and wants to age at home. The result is more than 53 million family caregivers in the U.S., caring for more than 80 million people, and spending more than $187 billion on home health care. Recently, Bianca Padilla, CEO and Co-Founder of Carewell, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss the importance of supporting caregivers around the country. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/Z8i-N0yyx30 One-fifth of Americans will act as informal caregivers at some point in their lives, but there is little in the way of vetted products, product knowledge, guidance, and service to help those in the position of caring for a loved one. The biggest trend in caregiving over the past few years is aging at home. 90% of Americans want to stay in their homes for the rest of their lives. They don’t want change, and it’s up to the younger generations to help them do this safely and comfortably. 84% of caregivers report needing more information, so providing access to educational resources is vital for this audience, especially as conditions change - and usually worsen - over time. Carewell is redefining home healthcare by helping caregivers manage their loved one’s conditions, as well as their own lives. Carewell strives to make this population feel seen and understood by providing the products, service, and community support they need along with a level of customer service and convenience rarely found in healthcare. Carewell offers support to family caregivers with a library of information and caregiving guides to remove guesswork. For more information, visit Carewell.com About Bianca Padilla: Bianca Padilla is the CEO and co-founder of Carewell, a family-founded company that simplifies life for caregivers by providing personalized service, compassionate content, and expert-vetted home care products. A graduate of New York University with a B.A. in Economics, Bianca attended the Disney Institute and formed the Charlotte chapter of Aging 2.0, for which she currently serves as an ambassador. Prior to founding Carewell, Bianca worked as a software engineer at LiveNinja and as an analyst for CCMP Capital Advisors and Pantheon Ventures. A Miami native, Bianca enjoys spending time with her co-founder husband Jon and dog Henry, traveling, being an unabashed foodie, and reading books about entrepreneurship, leadership, tech, and comedy.

Lexion Launches Email-First Contract Workflows for Rapid, Easy Adoption

Lexion

Lexion, an AI-powered contract management system, today announced Lexion Workflow, a new module that accelerates the in-house legal contracting process. Lexion’s Workflow spans the entire end-to-end contracting lifecycle from intake, drafts, and negotiation, to approvals and signature. Unlike other contract management systems, stakeholders can work with Lexion’s Workflow entirely via email, eliminating the need for complex configuration and training. “Incredibly easy is our key focus,” said Gaurav Oberoi, co-founder and CEO of Lexion. “In-house legal teams are tired of CLMs that over-promise and under-deliver. The root cause of that frustration is nearly always tied to organization-wide change management requirements and lengthy implementations. After speaking with more than 50 in-house counsel, it was clear to us that the key to unlocking value was to give legal teams an intuitive dashboard to manage intake and tasks, while letting the rest of the company simply email in requests, redlines, approvals, and follow-up questions.” “With Lexion, anyone in our company can simply send an email asking for a contract review, and it turns the request into a task on a dashboard,” said Michael Leman, Deputy General Counsel at Fox Factory (NASDAQ: FOXF). “I can then manage the entire process in one place, while my internal clients can remain in email. Unlike the prior CLM system we used, Lexion has made company-wide adoption painless, and given our legal team tools to clearly communicate status, measure performance KPIs, and accelerate contracting.” According to Gartner, legal departments will increase their technology spend 300 percent by 2025, and yet only realize 30 percent of the potential benefit of their CLM investments because of the complexities of requirements gathering, change management, and user adoption. Lexion is positioned to capture this demand by offering a pragmatic platform that delivers on the promise of speeding up contract review and eliminating legal busywork. Lexion will accomplish this with a focus on ease of use and AI-powered automation as key drivers. “Many of our clients are interested in improving the contracting process,” said David Wang, Chief Innovation Officer at Wilson Sonsini. “However, they are wary of the cost of implementation, and the difficulty of getting the entire organization to adopt elaborate systems. Lexion’s novel, email-centric approach, is a game changer in that it addresses the chief barriers to adoption and dramatically increases the chance that the business will realize the benefits of the system.” With the addition of Workflow to Lexion’s AI-powered Repository, Lexion now offers an end-to-end contract management solution for in-house legal teams that helps them capture key metrics and accelerate deals while using AI and automation to help them scale. About Lexion Lexion is an incredibly easy to use contract management system, powered by AI. We're on a mission to make legal teams highly productive and happy, by accelerating contract review and eliminating busywork through automation and AI. We use best in class natural language processing technologies to make it 100x easier for legal teams to find what’s in their contracts and automatically stay organized. Best of all, Lexion’s email-centric approach, and legacy contract onboarding, makes implementation and adoption easy. We built Lexion at Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s artificial intelligence research institute (AI2) and are backed by the same investors that funded OpenAI (Khosla Ventures), helped launch Amazon (Madrona Venture Group), and have advised Google (Wilson Sonsini). With a top notch and experienced team from Microsoft, Facebook, Google, and Amazon, we built a company that CB Insights ranked the #1 most promising AI legal tech startup in the world two years in a row (2020, 2021). Most importantly, fantastic brands trust Lexion to manage their contracts: Outreach, OfferUp, Blue Nile, and many more. Visit https://lexion.ai for more.
