Theorem Expands AdOps, Order-to-Cash and Automation Services, Increasing Productivity & Cash Flow to Media and Entertainment Companies

Theorem Inc

Theorem, a full-service flexible digital marketing solutions provider, with over 20 years of experience successfully streamlining ad operations for the world's leading media and entertainment brands, is expanding its automation services for publishers, video and audio streaming companies. Theorem’s new AdOps automation and order-to-cash (OTC) offerings are designed to help media and entertainment brands grow their revenue through a unique mix of human intelligence, machine learning, and automation technologies. Ad Operations challenges are being felt across the media and entertainment industry as more brands are looking to advertising as a monetization model. The need for campaign scalability is greater than ever before. Order volume is out-scaling the manual elements of existing processes. Companies with an ever-growing daily volume of short-lived ad placements are experiencing high volumes of error rates, limitations in trafficking and reporting capabilities, and slowdowns in revenue recognition speed as a result of their heavily manual ad ops and order-to-cash processes. Theorem’s industry-first automation services provide unique expertise and mastery of advertising products that are overlaid with automation IP. The solutions eliminate manual data entry, reduce error margins, and increase productivity and scale, enabling media and entertainment companies to speed up their order cycles and grow revenues faster. Theorem’s new automation services benefits include: Decreased manual labor and people-related attrition Return on investment of around 50% and cost savings Faster order-to-cash and revenue recognition Increased productivity Simplified digital processes Reduction in error rates Future-proof scalability Theorem works with top media and entertainment companies including Turner, News Corp, Hearst, Pandora, and 30+ brands that span the streaming, audio, OTT and publishing sectors. Through its automation services, Theorem decreases manual AdOps processes by as much as 50%, which has allowed such companies to realize greater revenue from their digital advertising initiatives. “Most media and entertainment companies either have automation built for internal use or they have generic automation products, which are not mapped to the digital marketing workflow. We developed our new automation services to address this growing gap in the market, which is contributing to significant revenue loss for publishers and others looking to advertising as a top revenue stream,” said Jay Kulkarni, CEO, Theorem. “From our decades of expertise in AdOps and OTC, we know that refining these processes leads to huge gains and also sets businesses up for long-term success.” Theorem’s expertise is built on 20+ years of refining and scaling ad operations and order-to-cash processes with global media and entertainment companies, helping them address the common challenges of manual trafficking, reporting, and billing. Leveraging automation to reduce these manual, costly, time-consuming, and error-prone tasks enables clients to get the most out of their ad operations processes. Theorem’s new and unique automation services are designed to future-proof digital marketing operations by reducing the operational cost of managing AdOps and creating greater revenue opportunities for publishers across all categories. About Theorem Founded in 2002, Theorem creates, delivers and optimizes digital marketing campaigns for some of the world's most successful brands. By offering scaled technology, media, operations, marketing, CRM, and creative solutions under one roof, Theorem can provide flexible, full-service marketing solutions to their clients.

Investis Digital Ranks the Top 100 Leaders in ESG Communications

Investis Digital

Investis Digital, a leading global digital communications company, announced today the publication of a 2022 ranking of the Top 100 global leaders that use digital most effectively to build their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) reputations. The first-of-its-kind rankings were published in a report, The ESG 100, which offers insight into how businesses can build trust through their commitment to ESG. The rankings, based on a thorough analysis of investor relations (IR) and corporate communications websites, identified the following companies in the Top 10: 1. Unilever 2. Nestle 3. NatWest Group 4. SAP 5. Legal & General 6. BHP 7. Kingfisher Plc 8. AstraZeneca 9. Coca-Cola HBC 10. Informa To rank these leaders, Investis Digital applied its Connect.IQ proprietary tool and methodology to evaluate 1,000 websites of the leading publicly traded companies around the world. The company scored the companies along 50 ESG criteria, such as: A dedicated ESG and/or sustainability section. ESG strategy and approach, quantified. Statement of ESG principles and policies. Climate change topics and related risks. Greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 1, 2 & 3). Materiality assessment, quantified. Corporate social responsibility (CSR) topics. Diversity and inclusion reporting. The ESG 100 also offers insights into how businesses can more effectively share their ESG story based on Investis Digital’s own client work. For example, the report offers tips for how businesses can share their diversity/inclusion strategies on their websites. “In the age of stakeholder activism, global companies are under more pressure to share credible ESG strategies with every audience ranging from investors to their own employees, and The ESG 100 gives businesses a benchmark for what success looks like,” said Kristen Kalupski, global senior vice president of marketing at Investis Digital. “The Top 10 ESG companies consistently set clear ESG goals and share measurable progress toward meeting those goals through data-driven storytelling.” The Top 10 from the 100 best companies excelled in crucial categories such as reporting on Scope 1, 2, and 3 greenhouse gas emissions – which is especially important at a time when the world is more acutely aware of the interconnected nature of global supply chains. In addition, the leaders consistently made their ESG data downloadable and transparent, documented how well their efforts align with multiple ratings agencies and frameworks, published content that speaks to their approach with specific industry issues, stated their carbon neutral commitment and articulated a roadmap to net zero. “The leaders do more than share data,” said Kalupski. “Leaders build trust through transparency.” Grounded in its mission to create meaningful connections through digital to drive business performance, Investis Digital is committed to creating long-term value for its stakeholders through its proprietary approach called Connected Content™. As businesses update their ESG strategies, they’re also taking a closer look at how well they communicate those strategies to investors, customers, job seekers and employees who look toward corporations to play a more meaningful role in society.

A Million Dollars Will ‘Level Up’ Thousands of Houston Area Residents Out of Digital Divide

Comcast Houston

If you’ve ever played a popular 80’s video game, then you know about the disadvantages your character has right out of the gate. You can’t jump as high or as far, and it’s easier to lose the level and have to start all over again. But in the first few seconds, there’s usually always a chance to ‘level up’ your character. Instantly, you can jump higher and farther, run faster and if you encounter an enemy, you still have another chance at winning the level. There are thousands of Houston area residents who — from a digital perspective — aren’t ‘leveled up” and therefore struggle to participate in the digital economy. Some Houstonians still don’t know how to surf the web, write emails or create a resume. Others don’t even have a reliable and fast internet connection in their homes. The digital divide is still big. According to the 2020 U.S. Census Bureau’s American Communities Survey, one in ten households, or 687,086 households, in the greater Houston area do not have an internet subscription or do not have a computer. They want to ‘level up’, and they are about to get it. Comcast, the Houston area’s largest internet service provider, is giving more than one million dollars this year to local organizations that help students, adults and people with disabilities ‘level up’ their computer, career development and tech education skills. The million-dollar investment will also support ongoing efforts to build awareness about low-cost or no-cost connectivity programs like Internet Essentials and the federal government’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). “These investments are a part of Comcast’s ongoing efforts to make a real difference in southeast Texas by giving families an opportunity to thrive in this digital age,” Ralph Martinez, Comcast Houston’s Regional Senior Vice President, said. “The Internet is where life happens. It allows students to expand their educational aspirations and it empowers parents to explore better job openings so they can ultimately deliver a better quality of life for their families.” So far, Comcast has given grants to eight Houston area organizations. More announcements will be made later this year. United Way | Funding will be used to provide tech experts (Digital Navigators) to help people in need of digital skills training. BakerRipley | Funding will support computer skills, software, email and internet safety training for low-income adults in the Houston area. Comp-U-Dopt | Funding will support students participating in Early Adopters, STEAM Team and Learn2Earn, which brings technology education to area youth. Comp-U-Dopt will also use the funding to provide tech experts (Digital Navigators) to help people in need of digital skills training. Easter Seals of Greater Houston | Funding will support the development of a curriculum for people with disabilities to help them successfully learn to use digital technology to gain and maintain employment. The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Houston | Funding will help high school students gain technical and leadership skills through the Workforce Readiness Program. AAMA | Funding will be used to purchase technology and equipment to support students through the training program at the Work and Learn Center, with an emphasis on digital literacy and design. Dress for Success | Funding will be used to provide Houston-area women with the resources needed to obtain long-term employment through access to job readiness training, digital skills workshops, computers and mobile labs. AVANCE-Houston | Funding will support adult literacy program and continue to build pathways to economic mobility for families in the community. “We are passionate about doing our part to help close the digital divide and committed to helping establish a more equitable foundation for learning, working and succeeding,” Martinez said. Comcast remains steadfast in its efforts to connect people to moments that matter, to connect families to opportunities in Southeast Texas. For more than a decade, the company has offered Internet Essentials to help low-income Americans access reliable, high-speed internet. Comcast is now a proud champion of the federal government’s new Affordable Connectivity Program. ACP gives qualifying households up to $30 towards their monthly internet bill. With ACP, Comcast’s Internet Essentials internet service is free. As more Houston area residents get the ‘level up’ they need, just like in their gameplay, they will have more chances to keep advancing—better jobs, better education, innovation, opportunities and yes, more fun and better gaming. Comcast Corporation (Nasdaq: CMCSA) is a global media and technology company that connects people to moments that matter. We are principally focused on connectivity, aggregation and streaming with 57 million customer relationships across the United States and Europe. We deliver broadband, wireless, and video through our Xfinity, Comcast Business, and Sky brands; create, distribute, and stream leading entertainment, sports, and news through Universal Filmed Entertainment Group, Universal Studio Group, Sky Studios, the NBC and Telemundo broadcast networks, multiple cable networks, Peacock, NBCUniversal News Group, NBC Sports, Sky News, and Sky Sports; and provide memorable experiences at Universal Parks and Resorts in the United States and Asia.

Minuteman Press Million-Dollar Owners Thomas and Denise Batliner Share Keys to Business Growth in Louisville, KY

Minuteman Press International Inc

Thomas and Denise Batliner have owned their Minuteman Press franchise located at 3905 Bardstown Road since November of 2005. With over 16 years in business, Thomas shares the following insights that helped he and Denise grow their business in Louisville and become members of the Minuteman Press International President’s Million-Dollar Circle. On this accomplishment, Thomas says, “Denise and I believe marketing efforts, customer service, networking, and a little luck have been vital to our success and longevity. We would like to place special emphasis on customer service. At Minuteman Press in Louisville, we focus on treating the customer as we would like to be treated. We believe anyone who walks through the door can be our next biggest customer, and hospitality may make or break the possible relationship.” He continues, “Over the past 16+ years in business, Denise and I have grown the business by developing relationships with new customer bases. More specifically, we gained these relationships through acquisitions. For example, in August of 2012, we purchased an independent printer. This acquisition almost doubled our 2011 sales in addition to our everyday marketing and networking. Then, in December of 2020, we purchased an independent promotional products company. Like our 2012 acquisition, we almost doubled the past year’s sales. Our new customers are the key to our success, and we appreciate their continued business and loyalty.” From the US Navy to Owning a Printing Business Prior to franchising with Minuteman Press, Thomas Batliner served in the US Navy. He shares, “We didn't start Minuteman Press until 2005 when I was 38 years old. Before reaching this point, I served in the United States Navy for three years where I specialized in aviation hydraulics (AMH3). This military experience reinforced the work ethic instilled in me at a young age while farming with my family and has played a vital role in driving my determination to stay in the printing industry.” Thomas continues, “Furthermore, after being honorably discharged, I was a tool and die specialist by trade before being promoted to an estimator at a plastics manufacturer, Beach, Mold, and Tool, now known as NYX. While in this role, I earned an associate degree in Business. But most importantly, I decided I wanted to drive my career and become an entrepreneur. Minuteman Press matched this goal because of the low initial investment, and the business presented the new challenge I was seeking.” “Minuteman Press International supported me from the beginning before I had any professional knowledge about the printing industry. For instance, at the initial home office training, I learned basic facts about paper stocks and more information regarding machine availability and capabilities. Lastly, our office utilizes FLEX, the workflow software developed by Minuteman Press that constantly evolves to add effective apps that drive marketing value.” – Thomas Batliner, owner, Minuteman Press, Louisville, KY Leveraging Local Business Relationships & Benefits of Printing Today When asked what it has been like to own a business in Louisville for over 16 years, Thomas shares, “We are in an urban area and serve a diverse community. There are people from many varying backgrounds, and we have learned about different cultures from around the world. Additionally, we are part of a community where nearby business owners help and look out for one another. For instance, a nearby competitor has helped us continue production during machine downtime and meet customer demand. To return this favor, we have been known to share our resources if this competitor is short-staffed. Because of this dynamic, we believe it is important to develop healthy relationships with everyone in the community, even those with competing business goals.” Thomas explains why printing remains so vital today, sharing, “We believe printing remains vital today because it secures a company’s mission. In terms of management, it also provides different avenues for documentation. To illustrate, when a business provides a digital or physical copy of an employee handbook to its staff, it can better document and communicate expectations and other important information.” He adds, “The main benefit of print is that it can be found everywhere, from the menu you use at your favorite restaurant menu to the branded t-shirt you buy at the store. Because of print's presence, companies always need it. Even during uncertain times like the pandemic, manufacturing facilities, hospitals, and a variety of other companies needed printed materials promoting safety warnings and best practices.” “Our highest demand products and services include envelopes, every door direct mail (EDDM), and wide format printing, a powerful visual medium used for larger files such as blueprints and banners. Our customers value these products and services because they can reach a larger audience. In addition to our highest demand products, key growth areas for our business are promotional products and branded apparel. For example, the customers from our acquisition of the promotional products company have driven sales and we have added a new product line that existing customers can access.” –Thomas Batliner Rewards of Owning a Business & Advice to Others As Thomas and Denise reflect on their accomplishments, there are a couple of items that really stick out. Thomas says, “The biggest personal reward for Denise and me was the ability to put both of our children through college as traditional four-year students. Lauren, our oldest, is now a critical care nurse and Erica, our youngest, is a sourcing and supply chain professional.” He adds, “Aside from this personal reward, our biggest professional reward was receiving our plaque for the Minuteman Press International President's Million Dollar circle. After 16+ years of business, it was an honor to achieve such a high sales goal and to meet others who have accomplished the same or more.” Thomas shares the following advice to today’s aspiring business owners, saying, “The advice I would give to someone looking to own a business is ‘do your homework.’ You need to choose something you can be passionate about and enjoy daily. Despite the hard work ahead of you, because there are some long days and weeks, it can be very rewarding.” For more information on Minuteman Press in Louisville, Kentucky, visit https://minuteman.com/us/locations/ky/louisville20/ Learn more about #1 rated Minuteman Press franchise opportunities at https://minutemanpressfranchise.com Contact Details Minuteman Press International Chris Biscuiti +1 631-249-1370 cbiscuiti@mpihq.com Company Website https://minutemanpressfranchise.com

ToT Foundation launches to foster equity, progress for Black Americans

ToT Partners

Wall Street veteran William Tillman, founder of ToT Partners, today announced the establishment of the ToT Foundation, a new philanthropic venture to connect Black individuals to business opportunities, resources, and mentorship. The Foundation concurrently announced the date of its inaugural gala, Sept. 11 at Rainbow Room in New York City. “Nobody who’s serious is arguing that the playing field is equal and fair for Black Americans—not on Wall Street, not on Main Street, and not anywhere else,” said Tillman. “The ToT Foundation is transparent in its mission: To help Black persons gain advantages in business that lead to positive reputations and generational wealth so that they can then pay those advantages forward to the next generation.” The Foundation also announced the appointment of Steve Month as an independent strategic advisor. Month is a private equity executive who spent ten years as Managing Director, Investment Banking/M&A at Citigroup. He is a graduate of Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School. Prior to ToT, Tillman ran the gauntlet across Wall Street, having worked in private wealth management and asset management at Morgan Stanley; commercial real estate at Deutsche Bank; equity derivatives trading at Societe Generale; and credit sales and trading, private credit financing, and mergers and acquisitions at Citigroup. During this time, he was mentored by some of the biggest names in business and finance. He established ToT Partners in 2022 to leverage his knowledge and experience for clients on his own terms. ToT Partners is a parent company with a plethora of business and philanthropic interests. It currently operates a merchant banking and private equity arm, DB Capital, and a luxurious private dining business, Taste of Tillman. Hailing from Florida, where he and his grandmother hand-delivered meals to victims of the United States’ draconian, repressive drug-enforcement policy of the 80s, Tillman made his way to Wall Street and worked for numerous prestigious firms. He has put his time and Wall Street earnings to philanthropic use on an individual basis ever since, as a mentor and connector, and the ToT Foundation, which has filed for 501(c)(3) nonprofit status, is an evolution of that philanthropy. The ToT Foundation’s financial support comes from Wall Street firms, hedge funds, private equity funds, and well-known hospitality businesses. Tickets to the gala are being provided on an invitation-only basis; contact Tillman directly to inquire about sponsorships and attendance. About ToT Partners ToT Partners was founded by William Nicholas Tillman in 2022. The name of the conglomerate embodies what the founder takes pride in: Being a polymath and illuminating ambiguity through business and philanthropy ventures.

InclusionHub Launches Podcast Tackling Digital Inaccessibility & Non-Inclusion

InclusionHub

To commemorate the 32nd anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) being signed into law, online digital accessibility and inclusion resource directory InclusionHub has released the inaugural episode of a podcast series devoted to exposing the truth behind the current state of the web, and searching for meaningful solutions. Hosted by Sam Proulx, Accessibility Evangelist at Fable—a leading accessibility testing platform powered by people with disabilities—The InclusionHub Podcast takes listeners and readers on an insightful, at times enlightening journey through the many facets of digital accessibility and inclusion, from the early days of the disability rights movement through the ongoing battle for true equality, for all. Twice a month, the podcast will feature a range of guests sharing critical insights about their experiences in this collective pursuit, from activists and advocates to designers and academics. These include such pioneers as internationally renowned disability rights advocate Judith Heumann and civil rights attorney Arlene Mayerson to Jennifer Keelan-Chaffins—who climbed the ‘Capitol Crawl’ to force the passage of the ADA when she was just 8 years old— and many more. Its first episode, titled ‘Accessibility by Design,’ kicks off this incredibly important conversation with Jutta Treviranus, director of the Inclusive Design Research Centre at Toronto’s OCAD University; Mike Hess, founder of the nonprofit Blind Institute of Technology; and Laura Kalbag, co-founder of the nonprofit Small Technology Foundation. These inaugural guests reflect back on the early days of the internet, and explain what it’s become: inaccessible and non-inclusive for folks living with disabilities. They expertly diagnose the problem, explain its insidious origins and proliferating spread, and lay out clear and simple steps to rectify such a decades-long injustice. “For millions across the globe, navigating the digital world can be painstaking, if not altogether impossible—and that’s because for years, the people behind popular tech platforms failed to incorporate web accessibility,” Proulx, who is blind, explains in the episode’s introduction. “Consider this: An estimated 15 percent of people on this planet experience a disability. And it’s critically important to stress right here at the beginning of this podcast that having a disability is not the exception, nor a curse,” he continues. “Disabilities know not race, sex, age, nationality, nor socioeconomic status. Disabilities do not discriminate. They are not relegated to one country. They do not judge.” The InclusionHub Podcast is sponsored by the online resource directory’s Founding Partners: leading customer relationship management software provider Salesforce; HubSpot Diamond Partner Agency Morey Creative Studios (MCS); leading accessibility testing platform Fable; and Be My Eyes, a free app connecting blind and low-vision people with sighted volunteers. Learn more at InclusionHub.com. Join us twice a month for this compelling, absolutely critical conversation, helping to contextualize the issue of digital accessibility, and advocate for a more inclusive web. As Proulx shares at the end of each episode: “Remember: a more accessible and inclusive world is a better world.” Contact Details InclusionHub Sage Levene +1 516-284-3314 sage@inclusionhub.com Company Website https://www.inclusionhub.com
