Model N Launches International Reference Pricing Solution for Global Life Sciences Manufacturers


LONDON, UK HYDERABAD, India (PRWEB) October 16, 2012 -- Model N, Inc., the leader in Revenue Management solutions, has announced the general availability of its International Reference Pricing (IRP) solution to pharmaceutical manufacturers operating globally.

This application addresses one of the massive market challenges for the global Life Sciences market and delivers significant gross margin benefits.

To contain growing healthcare expenditures related to drug costs, a rising number of governments seek to control prices with international reference pricing programs. These programs officially set a drugs national or regional price based on price benchmarks in other countries. Failing to coordinate price setting at launch and subsequent price changes can result in missed opportunities amounting to tens of millions in revenue. In addition, more and more governments across the globe require that manufacturers proactively report reference prices. Failure to comply in an accurate and timely fashion often puts manufacturers in a weak negotiating position with governments.

Model N International Reference Pricing delivers significant business and operational benefits to pharmaceutical manufacturers by:

IntoxBox Interactive Breathalyzer to Unveil New Model at Vegas Shows

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) March 12, 2012

It will call you a cab, invite you to guess your BAC (blood alcohol content), and, if you guess correctly, it will even text an activation code directly to your cell phone for a free BAC test. The IntoxBox, the worlds first smart BAC testing kiosk for bars, will make its national debut at two trade shows at the Las Vegas Convention Center March 12-16.

With its 19-inch touch screen monitor, dynamic graphics, interactive user interface and remote management system, the IntoxBox Interactive Breathalyzer bears little resemblance to the garish, novelty bar breathalyzers of the past.

Its advanced programming, entertaining user experience and state-of-the-art sensor module represent a quantum leap in bar breathalyzer technology. The IntoxBox even cycles ads in high definition on its touch screen monitor when the breathalyzer is not in use.

The IntoxBox will be featured at the Night Club and Bar Owners Convention and Trade Show March 12-14 and the Amusement Expo March 14-16. Both shows are at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The IntoxBox, which is manufactured by Walden Innovative Resources, LLC (WIR) of Eden Prairie, MN, currently has distributors in 13 states.

The IntoxBox features an interactive program that guides users through the testing process. Once the test is over, they are offered the opportunity to order a cab simply by touching an icon on the touchscreen monitor. It also invites users to guess their score. If they guess correctly they receive an activation code for a free BAC test.

Weve tried to make the IntoxBox experience something that entertains, educates, informs and provides a transportation option for customers who may decide not to drive their own vehicle home from the bar, explains Ryan Walden, WIR president and co-founder. Driving under the influence is a very serious issue, and we want to give customers all the tools they need to make a responsible decision.

Drunk driving accounts for nearly 12,000 deaths, 700,000 injuries and 1.4 million arrests each year in the U.S. Part of the problem, claims Walden, is that bar patrons dont have an opportunity to check their BAC before they leave the bar. You wouldnt drive without a speedometer, says Walden, so why are bar patrons expected to drive home without the opportunity to test their BAC before they leave the bar?

The IntoxBox is equipped with a state-of-the-art fuel cell sensor and a circuit board-controlled sampling system that is specially engineered to stand up to repeated use with no drop-off in accuracy. The IntoxBox quickly clears out residual condensation after each test to assure that BAC readings are as accurate as possible.

Measuring 34 inches high by 20 inches wide by 7 inches deep, the IntoxBox is built to last with a 14-gauge steel case, double-bolt lock and durable touchscreen monitor. It has a credit card swipe, dollar bill acceptor and a built-in straw bin that can hold more than 500 straws.

In its national rollout, the company has been contracting with independent operators who either sell or place the machines in bars in their area and collect revenue from usage fees and advertising.

Ad Sales

Between tests, the IntoxBox can display high definition video ads on its19-inch touchscreen monitor. It can also run direct impression ads during the testing process.

Not only can advertisers align themselves with responsible drinking, they are also able to get their messages displayed in the high traffic areas of these popular bars and nightclubs rather than on restroom displays that are normally associated with indoor advertising. The IntoxBox displays each ad about 12,000 times a month during prime business hours.

Remote Monitoring

The IntoxBox is the first bar breathalyzer with a remote monitoring system that allows operators to troubleshoot equipment functions and track paid transactions from their laptop or desktop computers or smart phones.

From a distributors perspective, the remote monitoring capability may be the most significant advancement of all, says Walden. You can see if the units are working properly and you can see how much each unit is earning each day without ever leaving your home.

After two years of test marketing in the Minneapolis-St Paul area, WIR rolled out national distribution of the IntoxBox in December 2010. The Las Vegas trade shows marks the first time the IntoxBox will be featured at a major public forum.

Continuent Announces Move to New Subscription Pricing Model

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 5, 2007

Continuent, Inc., the leading provider of commercial open source middleware solutions for database high availability and scalability, today announced its new pricing strategy.

Annual Subscription-Based Pricing.

Continuent offers commercial open source solutions for business continuity for mission critical database applications. Continuent uni/cluster is an award-winning clustering solution for MySQL Enterprise and PostgreSQL.

Until now, these products have been sold under a perpetual license. The decision to move to a subscription model was driven by the desire to align Continuent products with other commercial open source companies' pricing practices. Such a move will make purchase decisions easier for prospective customers. This move is also consistent with feedback from existing Continuent customers.

"Continuent's success is a clear indication of the increased demand for commercial open source solutions, also in mission critical use, and the overall positive effects of the cost effective open source economy," said Eero Teerikorpi, CEO of Continuent.

Continuent partner MySQL has successfully offered subscription-based MySQL Enterprise solution for over a year. Another Continuent partner, EnterpriseDB, has also gained significant traction in the PostgreSQL market with its EnterpriseDB and PostgreSQL support subscription offerings.

"More and more companies are seeking cost effective alternatives for their database needs. Continuent uni/cluster solutions allow our customers to deploy MySQL and PostgreSQL confidently with their critical applications, which earlier would have required more expensive commercial database solutions. By aligning our pricing with MySQL and EnterpriseDB solutions, we now make it easier and even more cost effective for our joint customers to gain access to these excellent solutions," Teerikorpi continues.

The new pricing starts at $ 3,600 per database CPU per year.

DSS Networks, The Gigabit Experts, Announces an Innovative Evolution of Its Model 6468 – A 4-Port Gige Server Adapter With an Onboard Switch Providing Bypass

Lake Forest, CA (PRWEB) May 2, 2007

DSS Networks announces an innovative evolution of one of their PCI Express based board level products - originally offered as an extreme performance 8-port Gigabit Ethernet hybrid switch/HBA on a highly integrated PCI-Express card form factor, now has evolved it into an intelligent Quad Port Gigabit Ethernet Server Adapter - further demonstrating years of commitment to enhancing extreme network computing board level products targeted for OEMs and Systems Integrators in embedded and real-time systems applications.

GigPCI-Express Switch - Model 6468. At its core, the Model 6468 is an 8 port Gigabit Ethernet L2 switch. The GbE switch fully interconnects the 8 ports at wire-speed. Four of the ports offer a host bus adapter (HBA) interface to the host driver and protocol stack. This provides major benefits by not having to use any base board Ethernet interfaces for switch connections, freeing them for other functions. The host ports talk through the Model 6468 onboard switch to any of the 4 external RJ-45 ports.

Model 6468's core features an innovative "4+4" switching design that provides extreme performance and functionality and can be used to provide add-on Gigabit Ethernet switching capabilities in standard or rackmount server-based systems. In addition to the switch, it has a 4-port PCIe Intel-based Gigabit MAC host interface, an onboard FPGA for management and control, and transceivers for the interconnect. Switch management is provided via eeprom and the host bus interface. Optionally, a microcontroller function can be synthesized into the FPGA to enhance the onboard management capabilities.

The Model 6468 can be used as a standalone or simple managed multiport switch or front-end network processor and is fully IEEE 802.3 compliant. As a PCI-Express option card, it can be used to add-on scalable-switched networking capabilities to any embedded system design with either "x8" or "x16" PCI-Express slots.

Independent Bypass feature on System Hang. Unlike most network interface cards with bypass, you must have a power failure in order to re-route port connections resulting in a dedicated port groupings and fixed network connections. The problem is, this all most never happens. More often than not, systems typically hang along with your network connections. Whereas with a Model 6468, should your host system hang, the 4 external ports will be allowed to continue to route network connections through it's onboard switch, not locking down port pairs, and continues independent bypass connections amongst the external ports.

Extreme performance and features: The Model 6468 is capable of running all ports at wire-speed including a host-bus interface throughput 980MB/sec (7.84Gb) and allows the Gbe switch to be embedded and tightly coupled with the CPU for advanced server control and routing capabilities. In addition to the Broadcom L2 switch and Intel MAC functions, a 4-port GbE Serdes transceiver from PMC-Sierra and a Lattice FPGA are used to provide interconnect and control functions. The combination of the switching, MAC's, onboard routing and control functions provide a very high-level of performance, functionality and integration using a low amount of power in a compact space. Features supported include port-based and 802.1Q VLAN's, trunking, failover and link-aggregation, port mirroring, protected ports, jumbo frames and 802.1p QOS/priority. Using this host interface coupled with the onboard FPGA allows dynamic control for advanced switching and management functions.

The Model 6468 GigPCI-Express Switch is available with an OEM Developers Kit containing Linux and VxWorks device drivers, library functions, frame generators, loopback tests, benchmark programs, statistics and management utilities and documentation.

DSS Networks, Inc. is a privately funded company located in Lake Forest CA and designs and manufactures embedded high-performance next generation Broadband Networking products based on technologies including Gigabit Ethernet, 10-Gigabit Ethernet, PCI-Express, PCI-X and CWDM.
