In particular, the company is exploring new innovations in medical robotics, adding one exploding market on top of another.
With the rapid advancement of sophisticated sensory and control electronics, the promise of economic robotic applications is finally becoming a reality. Although industrial robots have been around for a long time, smaller, lighter, and less expensive versions are finally beginning to play a serious role in the marketplace. It's much like the development of the computer, from a room-size electrical monster, costing millions, to a desktop, laptop, and now handheld electronic wizard that almost anyone can afford.
The worldwide demand for robots is growing rapidly, seen as a now affordable source of controlled energy. The global market for robots is currently estimated at $3.2 billion, with experts projecting the industry to approach $70 billion by 2025. In addition industrial applications, robots are now a crucial part of everyday life for an increasing number of individuals in their home. Personal assistance robots are helping the elderly, paralyzed, and chronically ill lead more independent lives, presenting a major breakthrough in home care with countless benefits.
Add to that the natural growth of the massive health care industry, and medical technology, and it's easy to see why, according to ABI Research, the medical robots industry is expected to reach $1.3 billion by 2016. As an example, various forms of robotic technology are already being used in hospital operating rooms to make difficult or impossible operative procedures now doable. But that same technology can be applied to many other industries, such as consumer electronics, agriculture, wind and solar, and manufacturing. Disclaimer

(MWAi), an Arizona based company providing technology that supports the exchange of real-time information between hardware assets, mobile workers, and key stakeholders in mission-critical positions.
MWAi is one of the nation’s biggest providers of IT infrastructure for copier dealer Managed Print Service companies, servicing over 350 major clients throughout the U.S., including Xerox’s Global Imaging Systems. The company provides advanced M2M (machine-to-machine) and M2P (machine-to-people) tools and solutions that support the exchange of real-time information. Adding IntellivueTM from Intellinetics gives them a full suite of ECM template-based offerings.
MWAi intends to expand their service offering beyond North America into Europe and the Asia-Pacific Rim over the next four quarters. As part of that offering, the company is actively working with Intellinetics to convert the Intellivue cloud-based ECM software into a double-byte character set (DBCS), a software language typical for Japanese, Korean, and Chinese translations. By employing DBCS, the Intellinetics software suite will be ready for clients in the Asia-Pacific Rim, in addition to English speaking clients in European countries.
This agreement continues the GlobalWise objective to find the right channel partners who have the ability to rapidly scale ECM sales into new markets such as those which MWAi participates. According to GlobalWise CEO, William J. Santiago, “MWAi was chosen because of their long-standing reputation with the copier channel, their depth of technology offerings and international marketing reach that will expedite our global strategy. MWAi offers copier dealers a full breadth of managed print service solutions, and through the Technology United ecosystem, has developed a visionary approach to bringing innovative solutions.”
MWAi President and CEO, Michael Stramaglio, spoke about why GlobalWise was their best choice: “MWAi evaluated several ECM offerings and found that Intellinetics truly understands the channel, as they have demonstrated in their very creative channel programs that leverage cloud technologies and on-demand solution templates, which will enable accelerated market adoption and growth.” He continued, “This combination will empower MWAi to become the first imaging channel provider to offer comprehensive stage four content management solutions, establishing MWAi as an industry leader in managed document solutions.”

As an outside investor, perhaps focused on nothing but short-term chart trends and last quarter’s earnings, it’s easy to overlook the fundamental qualities of a company and its managers that will determine its long-term performance. How many people appreciated the drive of Sam Walton or the potential in the small-town market that helped make Wal-Mart the biggest retailer in the world. If you don’t address the feelings of your customer, not just the needs, you’re handing a market to your competitor.
It’s that kind of intimate customer understanding that has driven revenue growth at SilverSun and its wholly-owned principal subsidiary, SWK Technologies, a growing IT application and consulting company that continues to elicit comments from its clients like the following:
– “More than helpful”
– “Everyone that I have ever dealt with at SWK has been fantastic!”
– “Professional and solves any problems that comes up”
– “Took time with each person in the department to go through highlighted areas that changed and/or that was new & improved”
– “The best upgrade we have ever gone through.”
It’s SWK’s team of CPAs, MBAs, and other professionals dedicated to implementing, consulting, training, and supporting Sage BusinessWorks 2011, Sage ERP X3, Sage MAS 500, Sage 500 ERP, Sage MAS 90, Sage MAS 200, and Sage 100 ERP, as well as other reporting and analytical tools for their customers, that makes clients keep coming back. It makes the company stand out from the lesser services that much of corporate America has reluctantly learned to accept.
As a Sage Software Authorized Business Partner, Sage Certified Gold Development Partner, Sage Certified X3 Partner, and Sage Authorized Training Center, the company argues that they offer the best-of-breed solutions for accounting and business management, financial reporting, ERP, CRM, job costing, EDI, and warehouse management, and can also provide open source programming on titles not incorporated into Sage.

International Stem Cell Corp., based in Oceanside, California, is a stem cell therapeutics company with a powerful new stem cell technology called “parthenogenesis,” which is expected to significantly advance the field of regenerative medicine by addressing the important issue of immune-rejection.
Parthenogenetic stem cells are derived from parthenogenetically activated human oocytes, where electrical or chemical stimuli replaces fertilization. Although not derived from fertilized eggs, these activated oocytes can be developed to the blastocyst stage which can give rise to a parthenogenetic stem cell line.
Of the several different types of stem cells, parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSCs) offer a unique combination of benefits. For one, parthenogenetic stem cells do not face the controversy associated with embryonic stem cells, which are derived from fertilized eggs (oocytes) that have the potential of developing into a human being. Neither do Parthenogenetic stem cells face the potential risks and regulatory scrutiny associated with induced pluripotent stem cells, which are differentiated cells that are chemically or otherwise driven back to earlier developmental stages requiring significant changes in gene expression that may have unknown biological impacts. Finally, parthenogenetic stem cells are not as limited in their ability to differentiate or proliferate as adult stem cells, which are difficult to obtain and work with.
In addition, different activation techniques applied to human oocytes allow the creation of either HLA heterozygous human parthenogenetic stem cell lines (hpSC), which are exactly HLA-matched/ histocompatible with the oocyte donors, or HLA homozygous hpSC, which may be histocompatible with significant segments of the human population.
The human parthenogenic stem cells pioneered by ISCO have the best characteristics of each of the other classes of stem cells. The ethical advantage of derivation from unfertilized parthenogeneticaly activated oocytes, combined with immune-matching advantage, makes hpSC a very promising source of pluripotent stem cells for cell-based transplantation therapy.
ISCO is the first company to have produced pluripotent human stem cell lines through the intentional use of parthenogenesis. To date ISCO has successfully derived and characterized 10 hpSC lines, including both HLA homozygous and HLA heterozygous lines. One of these lines (hpSC-Hhom-4) carries the most common HLA haplotype found across racial groups within the US population.
The company continues to make hpSCs available to academic and corporate research worldwide for their exploration of a wide range of disease targets.
