After several acquisitions of smaller companies, Securus gained global positioning systems, voice biometric analysis and Managed Access Systems along with other technology. The company soon became the leading provider of technology to more than 3,000 facilities in North America.

Skout Releases New Year’s Survey

  • January 25, 2016
  • Apps

Skout has recently released the results of a survey of almost four thousand of its users. The survey analyzed the role that friends play in a variety of pursuits. It found that friends are a major factor in meeting a variety of goals and that they can be a significant factor in determining success of failure.

In particular, it found that friends played a major role in weight loss, romance, and finances. The survey shows that friendly encouragement does more encourage success in weight loss than gadgets or programs do. It also found that people are starting to favor blind dates over more open relationships, and that introductions from friends are the best source of those dates. Skout also found that people who have more friends are more likely to be promoted and work and that friends often encourage each other to save money.

In short, the survey discovered that the best way to succeed with a New Year’s resolution is to have supportive friends. They can make it easier to meet essentially any goal, and in some cases they’re almost a requirement. People who are looking for beauty, wealth, and love are all in the same boat: they all benefit from a helping hand from their friends.

Skout is a popular mobile application that helps people meet new people and make new friends. It works like a social network, but unlike most other social networks it is designed to make introductions between strangers rather exclusively helping to keep existing friends in touch with each other. Users sign up and fill out a profile to help Skout match them with people that they will probably like, and then they can view other profiles and make contact with people who look interesting.

There are a few bonus features that make it even easier to find new friends. Skout users can filter their list of potential matches to only show people who are near them in order to ensure that they only chat with people that they can meet in person. It also offers a random matchmaking feature starts a chat between two random users and only reveals their names and profiles after they have been chatting for forty seconds. It’s a good tool for making new friends, and as the survey has shown, that can make all the difference when it comes to keeping a resolution and succeeding with life goals.

Hasselhoff Cannot Help Homejoy

  • January 4, 2016
  • Apps

You’ve probably seen the commercial. David Hasselhoff telling ‘hassle’ to take a hike. He touts the benefits of using Homejoy to take the ‘hassle’ out of housecleaning. Well, even the great actor himself couldn’t help Homejoy to stay afloat. Recently, via a blog comment, Homejoy announced they had declared bankruptcy. It seems a series of lawsuits and the question of worker classification finally closed down the business. Homejoy was the chief competitor of Handy Technologies. So, now where will people go to get their homes cleaned and their toilets fixed? Well, they will go to Handy Technologies, of course.

Handy Technologies pairs up clients with professional cleaners and repairmen. Clients looking to have their home deep-cleaned once, or to have someone come in weekly, will enjoy using Handy Technologies because they have covered everything. No more trying to check out references or doing background checks. Everything is done by Handy Technologies. A simple set-up with a credit card, which Handy Technologies will keep on file, and the clients are ready to go. They simple state where the job is located, what time it starts and how many rooms need to be cleaned.

From there, independent contractors of Handy Technologies will see the job listed. They can decide if the area is good or if it’s just too far to drive. They see the starting time and decide if that works with their schedule. Cleaners will also see how big the job is. Do they feel like cleaning ten rooms that day, or would a job doing five rooms be better? The choice is theirs. When the contractors are in control, they do better work.

With Handy Technologies, both the client and the cleaner win. Both are happy with the arrangement. When both sides are happy, a company can grow and profit. That is why Handy Technologies is still flourishing while others go bankrupt.

Give Handy Technologies a try this year. See the difference in satisfaction for yourself.

Home Cleaning App ‘Handy’ Continues to Flourish

  • December 28, 2015
  • Apps

When ‘Handy Technologies’ got up off of the floor many thought that the company was destined for some sort of failure. An app that provides customers a way to connect with service providers had seemingly been done to death via the internet. Competition, as well, was fierce with another start up by the name of ‘Homejoy’ quickly gaining ground. However things took a dramatic turn over this past year as Homejoy ended up filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, leaving Handy head and shoulders above the competition.

The differences between Handy and Homejoy aren’t as numerous as you might expect, at least from the surface. Homejoy was established by Adora and Aaron Cheung back in 2013 and it quickly pulled in massive venture capital from sources such as First Roudn Capital, Redpoint Ventures, and Google Ventures — to the tune of $38 million. Yet, the app fell apart despite a focused push in the marketing department that included a run of commercials with celebrity David Hasselhoff as the star.

Now, Handy is continuing its meteoric rise as a one stop shop for customers who need special services with the click of a button. Over the past year, in 2015, we have seen Handy cross the million customer threshold while simultaneously raising an additional $50 million in funding. Handy attributes its success to the wide array of services that are on offer for customers. Where Homejoy focused on home cleaning, Handy allows any type of service provider to get in and offer their work to needy customers.

Skout Is A Safe Place To Date And Socialize

Anyone who’s ever thought about getting the Skout application but never did should take the suggestions listed on The Nation website, which gives a short list of several applications to download. The Skout network made it onto this list, and there are several features that are highlighted about the Skout network in the article published by The Nation. Since Skout is tremendously popular among young people these days, it’s a great place for people to date and socialize, especially if they are not ones to frequent many different social media networks.

Is Skout a safe network to use? Skout is no different than any other dating or social media network out there in the fact that it’s only as safe as the users make it. If a user sees that another person is being harassed or knows of a harassment taking place on the Skout network, the harasser can be blocked, and it’s best to report the incident to Skout. Skout is a safe place because even teenagers can use the network and are protected from the rest of the population by having their own section. Skout’s administrators are always working on keeping its users as safe as possible.

What should those who are worried about safety do on the Skout network? Anyone who’s worried about their safety when using the Skout network can keep their location private if they are using Skout. By not allowing others to see their location, then no one will know exactly which city or location they are in, and this is one way to protect themselves. Another thing a person should do is to block anyone on Skout that they feel is problematic to them, and be certain to be careful when meeting someone in person who was originally found on the Skout network.

How is Skout different from other dating sites? The reason why Skout is different from many different dating sites is because it’s not focused on only one type of dating. Some dating sites are based on international dating, elderly dating, youthful dating, or even local dating. The Skout network allows people to date as they please, which can be international, local, and those of any age group outside of teenagers can date one another on the Skout network. Since Skout allows people to be completely free when dating on the network, it’s brought in more members to the network.

What kind of fun things can people do on Skout? Those who go to Skout looking for fun will be pleased to know that there are several things they can do to enjoy themselves on the network. Besides chatting with a stranger that is unknown, a person can use the shake to chat feature, which can give them a multitude of national and international people to talk to. Shaking the phone is all that’s required to get a new person to chat to. Skout also has greetings that can be sent, virtual gifts, virtual traveling, and a lot more.
