New Data for Contract Management Software Procurement Category Market Research Report from IBISWorld

New Data for Contract Management Software Procurement Category Market Research Report from IBISWorld

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 07, 2015

Contract management software has a buyer power score of 4.2 out of 5. This score indicates that buyers are in a favorable position to negotiate price discounts or package deals from providers. Prices for contract management software have been stable during the past three years, and they are anticipated to remain stable in the three years to 2017. “Due to growing business activity and an increasing utilization of software for business processes, demand for contract management software has grown steadily,” according to IBISWorld business research analyst Dale Schmidt. Despite higher demand, competition and the rising prevalence of cloud computing technology in the market have moderated price increases. Competition has increased as more providers have entered the market, putting pressure on providers to lower prices. California is home to Silicon Valley, a highly concentrated area of technology companies and many of the top computer science universities in the world. As a result, many contract management software providers, such as SAP, IBM and Sciquest, have their headquarters in California. The use of cloud computing technology, meanwhile, has lowered the cost of delivery, and suppliers have passed on these cost savings to buyers in the form of lower prices.

Buyers also benefit from low market risk. Contract management software providers are not dependent on any critical inputs that may interrupt the supply chain or create significant price fluctuations. As a result, buyers can expect reliable and steady access to contract management software to manage their contracts. Also, most providers have seen healthy revenue growth in the past three years, although buyers should be aware that smaller providers might not be as financially stable as larger and more established software publishers.

Buyers also benefit from the high availability of substitutes. “Buyers can use document management software or manual, paper-based systems to manage their contracts instead of this market’s software. In addition, buyers can seek price discounts by comparing prices for these substitutes with the price of contract management software. Furthermore, market share concentration and product specialization are low, which benefits buyers because it indicates that there are a large number of providers that can provide contract management software,” Schmidt says. That said, switching costs are medium, creating some risk that buyers may be locked in with their provider. As such, buyers should take their time to evaluate and select the right supplier.

The Inspection Group Tests Google Glass for Housing Inspections and other Building-Related Data Collection Activities

The Inspection Group Tests Google Glass for Housing Inspections and other Building-Related Data Collection Activities

Matt LaVrar, VP-Inspection Services

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) April 21, 2014

The Inspection Group, Inc. (TIG), one of the nation’s leading field data collection, analysis, and reporting companies for the Public and Affordable Housing Industry, is field-testing Google Glass through the Google Glass Explorer Program as a reporting and analysis aid for conducting Uniform Physical Condition Standards (UPCS) inspections and Housing Quality Standards (HQS) inspections of residential properties receiving Federal subsidies in conjunction with its InspectUS™ software for inspections. TIG Glass™, a mini-computer that pairs with Android™ devices via Bluetooth™ technology, is currently beta-testing, with an anticipated national release date, early first quarter of 2015.

Housing programs receiving Federal subsidies include Public Housing properties, Housing Choice Voucher Programs, Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) and USDA-Rural Development programs.

Saul Himelstein, President/CEO of TIG, speaking about the Google Glass beta test, said: “The Inspection Group, for over 15 years, has focused on delivering to our clients the very best field data collection, analysis, and reporting services at the lowest possible cost consistent with our quality standards for inspections and reporting. We are mindful that, in many cases, we are evaluating properties supported by taxpayer dollars and that everything we do to ensure safe, decent, and sanitary homes at the lowest possible cost for publicly-assisted housing redounds to the benefit not only of the residents but of the entire community. The best way for us to do that is to promptly adopt new technologies that we believe, after careful evaluation and field testing, can improve our efficiency and productivity. TIG has always done this. TIG developed InspectUS™ inspection software, in partnership with Quick Solutions, Inc. (QSI) as a tablet-based tool. We are now testing Google Glass in cooperation with QSI and Ameresco. TIG views Google Glass as promising another great leap forward in our ability to provide the best, most accurate documentation of inspections in the least possible time when combined with our InspectUS™ Inspection Software for Housing and the Physical Needs Assessment data collection tool iAuditor™ from Ameresco.

Matt LaVrar, VP of Inspection Services for The Inspection Group, is seen here utilizing “The Glass” during an inspection.

Awareness Technologies Releases Additional Data Loss Prevention Features

Awareness Technologies Releases Additional Data Loss Prevention Features

Westport, CT (PRWEB) June 26, 2013

Awareness Technologies, Inc. (ATI), the only provider of Complete Insider Threat Security On Demand, today announced it has released an advanced Windows Client with robust new Data Loss Prevention (DLP) features. With InterGuard’s patented Single Agent architecture, organizations can now monitor, discover, and prevent data loss and leakage in Webmail attachments – such as Gmail, and Yahoo Mail – as well as monitor and record Skype messages. The new upgrade, which is free to ATI’s current DLP customers, further sets the bar for organizations and resellers looking for complete data leakage prevention.

InterGuard’s popular end-point security suite includes Data Loss Prevention, PC & mobile device monitoring, web filtering, and lost laptop recovery. The new enhancements for DLP now include the ability to scan Webmail attachments for File Type and Alert Words in the attachment’s content. This is significant because prior to this release, Webmail attachments could not be scanned by traditional appliance and software-based DLP solutions. Using InterGuard’s unique endpoint architecture, an organization’s security team can now block and/or report data transfers for computers, whether on or off network. InterGuard’s tiny stealth client, which is always on and working, will prevent the movement of protected file types and sensitive content even if the computer is not connected to the Internet.

According to Brad Miller, CEO of Awareness Technologies, “Unlike appliance-based DLP solutions, InterGuard’s end point security suite works both on and off network as well as if not connected to the Internet.”

There are more than 450 million users of Google’s Gmail. In the past six months, more than 60 million Microsoft customers have converted from Hotmail to Besides the potential personal use of Webmail by employees, many companies are now migrating their corporate email to a cloud-based solution, and adopting cloud- based storage and apps such as Google Docs. Webmail presents a risk of data loss from behind the corporate firewall because employees can easily send large files with potential confidential company information. Users with company laptops also present a threat when they move off the corporate network. While a company can easily monitor attachments in traditional corporate email clients, webmail monitoring has long been a problem. Now organizations can monitor attachments sent by an employee’s Webmail as easily as they can those in Exchange or other desktop email clients.

Awareness Technologies is the pioneer in Unified Insider Threat Prevention. Awareness Technologies’ true cloud-based service is easily available and affordable for businesses of any size. Awareness Technologies uniquely protects users at the endpoint by offering multiple best-in-class technologies including PC and Mobile device monitoring, Web Filtering, Data Loss Prevention and Laptop Recovery, through one tiny agent download and one control console.

Awareness Technologies was named one of the Top 20 Cloud Security Vendors in 2011 by CRN and is a member of the Ingram Micro Managed Services and Cloud Computing Seismic program, which offers education, training, and vendor support. Awareness Technologies has been named to the Deloitte Technology Fast 500, Inc. 5000, and Software 500 lists. Awareness Technologies’ consumer product, WebWatcher for PCs, is the most recent winner of PC Magazine’s Editors’ Choice for Web Monitoring.
