Putting The Supply Back In Supply Chain Integration System? — Nisun Claims To Have Solutions To The Crisis

Nisun International Enterprise Development Group Co., Ltd

Disruptions to the supply chain have caused massive economic damage in the past couple of years. Restrictions on global supply networks meant that the average country lost over $180 billion to supply chain disruptions while the U.S. lost $228 billion, according to a recent survey. However, these setbacks may also provide potential new opportunities as those both upstream and downstream in the supply chain seek new innovations. Some U.S. companies that managed to protect their supply chain despite global disruptions reportedly include technology company Cisco Systems Inc. and pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson. Nisun International Enterprise Development Group Co. Ltd. is one example of a company looking to fill the supply chain management vacuum. Based in China, Nisun aims at a sophisticated supply chain integration (SCI) through an ecosystem that it reports is made to fulfill all the financial and logistical needs of partnering companies. It is seeking to solve the integration of industry and finance to create a supply chain system serving as an essential intermediary in both upstream and downstream transactions. It also has the goal of helping small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), which it says it accomplishes by providing SMEs with capital access through a closed-loop financial technology platform. Learn More about Nisun International Enterprise Development Group Co., Ltd by gaining access to the latest research report! Linking Businesses For A Stronger Supply Chain Nisun is focusing its partnership efforts in five industries: e-commerce, gold, coal, chemical and agriculture, aiming to create a network out of this $305 billion cluster. The company seeks to provide collaborators with logistics and warehousing along with modernized financial services. One example of SME collaboration Nisun provides is with the merchants in the Henan Wanbang International Agricultural Product Logistics Park. Fintech (Shanghai) Supply Chain Management Co. Ltd ( Fintech Digital,) a supply-chain management subsidiary of Nisun, serves agricultural merchants by providing them with financial and logistical solutions. The downstream merchants place purchase applications, which Fintech Digital then negotiates and fulfills with its network of upstream suppliers, ensuring quick response to merchant product needs. Nisun also partnered with two companies to help with streamlining and digitizing the agricultural goods supply chain in late 2021. Through its partnerships with Sichuan Wanglianxing Agricultural Technology Development Co. Ltd. and Henan Xingyue Communication Technology Co. Ltd., Nisun hopes to bring its supply-chain expertise and resources to China’s National Rural Revitalization Program and modernization of the Chinese agricultural industry. A subsidiary of Fintech Digital and a controlled affiliate of Nisan, Fanlunke Supply Chain Management (Shanghai) Co. Ltd. signed a deal with Yunnan Pinhutang Distillery Co. Ltd., which brings them into the Chinese medical market. This supply-chain and procurement contract, with the plan to expand to sales, hopes to maximize the upstream and downstream market trading and meet the greater demand for Pinhutang products, which are available on online stores such as JD.com Inc. and Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. Through these strategic partnerships, Nisun may help produce solutions to the supply-chain crisis and make itself a bigger player in the supply chain. It claims its current success will continue into the future and maintain its 74% annual growth year on year. Similar companies in the supply chain and fintech space include NETSOL Technologies NTWK, 360 DigiTech, Inc.

Bernie Sanders Fined $15,000 by FEC for Hiring of Foreign Nationals

Coolidge Reagan Foundation

First Amendment watchdog Coolidge Reagan Foundation (CRF), on the heels of securing a record 6-figure fine against Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and the DNC, announced it has secured a five-figure fine against Senator Bernie Sanders. In a filing not yet made public, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) acted on a 2019 Complaint CRF filed exposing illegal activity by the Bernie Sanders campaign. The CRF Complaint exposed how the Bernie Sanders campaign hired foreign nationals in violation of federal election laws designed to prevent international actors from meddling in U.S. elections. As part of a conciliation agreement with the FEC, the Bernie Sanders campaign must pay a fine of $15,000. Additionally, the Sanders campaign must agree not to contest the findings of the FEC and must cease and desist from further law-breaking. “I find it incredibly ironic and not at all surprising that the same people who were so outraged by the Russia hoax were at the same time violating laws to prevent foreign influence in our elections,” said Dan Backer Counsel to Coolidge Reagan Foundation. “The Bernie Sanders campaign got caught willfully and knowingly allowing foreign nationals to participate in the strategy, planning, and tactical implementation of campaign activity.” The original Complaint may be found here. The Conciliation Agreement will be posted by the FEC within the next 30 days. The Complaint alleged in part that, “…Due to the high profile of Cesar Vargas, Erika Andiola, and Maria Belén Sisa as leading activists in the undocumented community, there is reason to believe that respondents are ‘foreign nationals'…and in violation of…directly or indirectly participated in the decision-making process of persons with regard to the election-related activities…” The Bernie Sanders Conciliation Agreement follows another recent Coolidge Reagan victory at the FEC from a 2018 Complaint resulting in a $113,000 fine against Hillary for America and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for lying about their funding of the Russia Hoax dossier. “Our track record is strong. We went after Hillary, and we won. We went after Comrade Bernie, and we won, again,” Backer continued. “While those on the radical left may not care about the truth, we do. Our determination is unwavering, and we expect the FEC will agree with us again as we call out additional violations in FEC Complaints we have filed.” ### Please visit https://www.coolidgereagan.org/.

Government Brands Becomes “Catalis” for Transforming Government

Catalis

Catalis is one of North America’s leading government Software as a Service (SaaS) and integrated payments providers, powering municipal, county, state, and federal governments. Government Brands was launched in late 2017 and in less than five years strategically acquired and combined more than 30 GovTech companies across the US and Canada.

The rebrand, which is not a corporate restructuring, is part of the company’s natural progression as it continues to grow and offer clients innovative technology and a more comprehensive suite of solutions.

We look forward to uniting our existing brands under one comprehensive citizen-first brand focused on serving government.” “Catalis” is inspired by the word “catalyst,” which describes the company’s mission: to serve as a catalyst for creating a modern digital government. Their deep expertise, proven track record, and purpose-built digital solutions empower public officials to advance government and engage citizens through technology. The company offers a wide range of technology solutions across government with a portfolio of leading SaaS solutions for Citizen Engagement, Courts, Land Records, Public Works, Tax, Regulatory & Compliance, and CAMA, and integrated systems for Payments. “The inherent complexity of government can hinder change, and no one feels this more than the people who work there: the public servants who work tirelessly to meet the needs of their citizens,” continues Kristel. “Catalis understands those challenges and provides the technology, expertise, and agility to successfully deploy modern, transformative solutions.” While the brand name has changed, Kristel assures customers that Catalis will continue to provide an unparalleled customer service experience, including an expanded range of resources and solutions to help them modernize government and engage citizens. “Our existing customers will continue to experience the same customer-centric service they have grown to know and rely on, and we’re excited to develop new partnerships at all levels of government,” says Kristel. “The rebrand to Catalis is just the next step in our progression to providing the technology and innovation to meet – and exceed – the expectations of a modern digital government.” About Catalis Catalis is the transformational SaaS and integrated payments partner powering all levels and sizes of government – municipal, county, state, and federal.
