The Sprinter Guy Launches a Site for the Mercedes Benz Refrigerated Sprinter

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Westwood, MA) The Sprinter Guy announces the launch of a new website devoted to the Mercedes Benz Refrigerated Sprinter segment. These vans remain the gold standard in the reefer van category and continue to be in high demand. As a result, customers often find they are unable to locate a refrigerated diesel van in stock, yet Mercedes Benz of Westwood, MA is looking to change that.

“Customers need access to a refrigerated diesel van in a timely manner, and we understand this. We utilize Carrier Reefer and Thermo King units and have a consistent backlog of orders to ensure we can meet the needs of our clients. Vans may be shipped nationwide, as this ensures a person can have the vehicle they need regardless of their location. In addition, we work with some of the preferred top up fitters in the country,” Jim Tully, spokesperson for Mercedes Benz of Westwood MA (www.refrigeratedsprintervansforsale.com/), announces.

Many companies need multiple vehicles and Mercedes Benz of Westwood can be of assistance here also. The fleet team examines the needs of a company to determine specific criteria needed for their vehicles. The team then makes recommendations on the body style, the interior configuration and the load capacity. This helps throughout the buying process, as customers needn’t guess as to which model and up fits are right for their needs.

“Contact the fleet team before purchasing Sprinter vans. Customers who do so discover they no longer make a purchase only to find they selected the wrong features or options. This also helps to keep the cost of fleet ownership down, and business owners appreciate this,” Tully continues.

Sprinter vans produce up to 90 percent fewer emissions than their gas-powered equivalents. Actually, the Sprinter van is the first super ultra-low emission vehicle (SULEV) diesel engine certified in the world. Companies concerned about their carbon footprint find they can purchase these vans with confidence, knowing they are doing their part to protect the environment.

“Visit refrigeratedsprintervansforsale.com to learn more about these vehicles. Thanks to their many benefits, most companies find this type of vehicle is exactly what their company needs.

San Francisco proves that city-startup collaboration can work

stir-demo-day_13

It’s tough for startups – with shorter capital runways and track records – to work with the long sales cycles, aging systems and bureaucratic requirements of cities. And governments often find themselves frustrated, working with legacy systems that need the support of new technology to keep up with the increases in urbanization and use of services.

But these startups have amazing solutions for cities, and in San Francisco, the Mayor’s Office of Civic Innovation implemented their new Startup in Residence (STIR) Program. It aims to mentor startups through the process of working with government and helps simplify paperwork.

Binti, one of their graduate startups, created a mobile-friendly web app for new foster care parents working with San Francisco’s Human Services Agency (HSA).

The Binti/HSA team built a new public website, sfcaresforkids.org, and developed software that makes it easier for potential foster parents to complete their application process online. The HSA said this tool could save city social workers up to 20-40% of their time, so they can do more outreach and less paperwork.

“Recruiting new foster parents in San Francisco remains critical,” said Trent Rhorer, HSA’s executive director. “Through STIR, Binti has streamlined the foster parenting process in only 16 weeks. This has been a transformative experience for our agency.”

Working on such a critical government-delivered need — “It’s always better when kids are placed with a supportive and caring family,” said Rhorer — may seem daunting to some startups, but this is where STIR helps.

“We were nervous to start working with government because we thought that procurement would be slow and bureaucratic,” said Binti co-founder and CEO Felicia Curcuru. “We didn’t know how to navigate government as an outside tech company.”

In addition to the savings of time and money to San Francisco’s HSA, the wider world of dealing with cities has opened up for Binti with this STIR effort. “HSA has recommended us to other counties in California, so we can start scaling our impact and expanding our business,” said Curcuru.

Following their first STIR Demo Day, ReadWrite sat down with Jay Nath, San Francisco’s Chief Innovation Officer, to learn about what made this program such a success and where its going next.

ReadWrite: Why was the STIR Program initiated originally? To solve what problem?

Jay Nath: It’s a simple idea. Technology has been the biggest driver of productivity and innovation gains in many sectors – with government being a notable exception. The nascent govtech ecosystem lacks one critical element: access to the needs and insights of government. We created the STIR program to bridge these gaps between government and the technology sector. How can we foster a culture of innovation in government and get our city staff to start approaching problems in more modern, nimble ways? We give the startups and City Departments four months to collaborate and develop a product innovation.

This year’s STIR program builds on the success of the San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Civic Innovation (MOCI) 2014 “Entrepreneurship in Residence” pilot initiative. In 2014, the initiative produced six technology product innovations designed to meet local government needs, such as indoor navigation for visually impaired travelers at San Francisco International Airport.

We fundamentally believe this kind of innovation program is not unique to San Francisco. So this year, with the help of a U.S. Department of Commerce grant, we expanded the program regionally to create a replicable and scalable model to build regional networks of City Governments that accelerate the creation of cutting edge government technology innovations.

RW: How is the program funded?

JN: Due to the success of the pilot program in 2014, in 2015, the U.S. Department of Commerce awarded us a three-year grant to scale the Startup in Residence program to Oakland, San Leandro, and West Sacramento.

And the 2016 STIR program would not have been possible without an incredible array of collaborators. This year, we were supported by a number of organizations including Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center, Civic Makers, ImpactHubSF, Runway Incubator, and Wearable IoT World Labs, as well as thought leaders, mentors and ambassadors.

Our Department of Technology (DT) was also critical to this year’s success. Under the leadership of our Chief Information Officer, Miguel Gamiño, DT supported the educational programming and made sure that the skill-building was shared with our city’s technology staff.

RW: How many companies participated and with what departments and what cities?

JN: In our pilot year, the program produced six technology product innovations in San Francisco, including an indoor navigation system for the blind and visually impaired at SFO Airport. This year, the 2016 STIR cohort includes 14 startups from across North America and 13 government departments in San Francisco, Oakland, San Leandro, and West Sacramento.

Participating startups are working on issues including streamlining the foster care application process, creating a mobile solution to support early education outreach and enrollment, and developing a tool to assess damage in the aftermath of an emergency, including earthquakes.

You can see the full list of the STIR teams on our website. (Note: They’re also listed below, and the Demo Day video is above.)

RW: What solutions coming out the STIR program were a success and why?

JN: One of STIR’s early successes comes from how the program is structured, it serves as an on-ramp for government departments and startups to start working together.

What we’ve heard time and again from startups who want to serve the public sector is that procurement is an uphill battle to working with government. Through STIR, we’ve lowered the barriers to entry for startups and government departments that want to work together. We did this by modeling the application to the STIR program as a streamlined Request for Proposal (RFP) process.

The new process helped us connect startups to government departments faster, since it took startups less than an hour to complete the application and it took government departments only days to draft. We hope that this streamlined procurement process might be a useful tool for other departments and cities to adopt.

RW: What are the next steps? How will these solutions be incorporated?

JN: While the STIR program does not make any commitments to our startups regarding procurement, we do anticipate many of our teams will enter into contracts with their government partners.

STIR has also facilitated a pathway for the Startups to begin connecting with other municipalities that share many of the same civic challenges and a number of the startups are in conversations now about their products and platforms.

You can dig in more to our 2016 pre-program agreements and post-program options.

RW: What solutions failed and why?

JN: We learned from our first year that many departments would like to continue working with their startup partners after the 16 week program. In 2014, we did not have a clear pathway for the partnerships to continue. We were piloting something that had never been done before so we were not sure the demand would be there on both sides. This meant that the startups in our pilot cohort had a difficult time working directly with their department after the end of the program. This is why we took the time to develop the RFP process mentioned above so that the there was more clear procurement pathway.

RW: What’s the plan for next year’s STIR program? When is it and where can people apply?

JN: The next round of STIR will kick off in Spring 2017, but applications for the program will open up before the end of 2016.  Startups will be able to submit their application to STIR at www.startupinresidence.org. We strongly encourage startups that are interested in applying to submit an initial application here, and city agencies that are interested in joining can learn more

Our goal is to continue growing the STIR network to more cities regionally and beyond. We believe that cities working together is a tremendous benefit to government in shared learnings and for startups by creating a broader market opportunity.

If you are interested in becoming a partner, mentor, or have any other questions, please contact STIR program manager Jeremy Goldberg at jeremy.goldberg@sfgov.org.

RW: How will the program grow?

JN: The goal of STIR is to build a large network of cities across the globe. This network of cities is an opportunity to not only capture the energy around the STIR program, but also a place to share learnings, and success stories alongside the co-developed products and platforms. We’ve witnessed similar programs taking place in Pittsburgh, Kansas City, Amsterdam, The Hague, and many more. It’s exciting to see the STIR model already catching on in many other cities because every city brings a unique angle into building the government technology ecosystem.

RW: What did you learn that you would now change?

JN: With each cohort and iteration of the program, we are learning and adapting.  How do we scale and distribute our educational training program so that all the cities can equally benefit from the amazing speakers we pulled together? How can we increase the networking and learning opportunities between the government staff in each of the participating cities? How can we continue to support our government staff who are taking important risks to solving our city’s critical challenges? We welcome feedback and dialogue on how we can make STIR a program that helps government modernize and improve quality of life for our residents.

RW: What is your advice to other cities trying to work with startups?

JN: We’re writing a STIR Playbook – stay tuned!

Here are the 2016 STIR teams

Take a look at the teams making up the cohort for this STIR class:

LENS worked with the San Francisco Fire Department Neighborhood Emergency Response Team  to design an emergency platform that manages profiles and information on community volunteers.

KarFarm worked with the San Francisco Office of Contracts to improve city vehicle procurement with a digital solution that generates RFPs.

SpiralScout assisted San Francisco Public Works to create a mobile app and database for officials to collect damage assessment data after major disasters such as earthquakes.

Spotery worked with the San Francisco Recreation Department to create a mobile app that allows users to reserve recreation facilities and participate in online lotteries for youth athletic programs.

CommunityLogiq worked with the San Francisco Office of Economic and Workforce Development to design software that allows office staff to visualize, map and track changes to land parcels in industrial zones.

Binti created a mobile-friendly web app for potential foster care parents working with San Francisco’s Human Services Agency. The app guides citizens through the foster care certification process and is hoped to be a pipeline for prospective candidates. For agency staff, the app doubles as a management tool to handle education and communication tasks.

BAYES IMPACT worked with the Oakland Police Department to create an analytics solution to assess highly demanded information and services from the police department.

Preschool2Me assisted Oakland Human Services Department to create software to support Head Start outreach, enrollment, and administration.

LotaData is provided an analytics app and user ID card that lets San Leandro’s Recreation and Human Services Department staff visualize and track usage patterns for recreational facilities. Leadership officials plan to use the analysis to optimize and improve services.

SyncFab worked with the San Leandro Office of Workforce and Economic Development to create a regional procurement platform that highlights San Leandro’s factory and supply chain resources.

Decision Patterns worked with the San Leandro IT Department to engineer an app that analyzes city budget and performance data.

RAXAR worked with the West Sacramento Fire Department to build a platform that allows fire department responders to report on emergencies and incidents from the field.

MOSAIQQ worked with the West Sacramento Police Department to craft a digital solution for police to manage, analyze, record and report on cases in real time and in the field.

AppleDore assisted the West Sacramento Police Department to create a mobile app that assists officers in screening homeless citizens, and would then pair them with available social service resources.

Booming MEA wearable sales growth propelled by basic devices

wearable-smartwatch

The Middle East and Africa (MEA) is another hot area for wearable sales, according to the latest figures from IDC, a market research firm.

Sales totalled 482,000 for the second quarter of 2016—which starts at April 1 and finishes June 30—a 66 percent increase on the same quarter last year.

See Also: Teva and Intel using wearables to monitor Huntington’s disease

Basic wearable devices, which are unable to load third-party applications, are the best sellers in the MEA region. The wearable category noticed an 80 percent increase in sales compared to last year, according to IDC. For comparison, smart wearable devices, which can connect to the internet and load other apps, only noticed a 40 percent increase over the same period.

“Fitness trackers continue to make up much of the market’s volume and are proving popular for the value for money they offer,” said Nakul Dogra, senior research analyst for at IDC MEA and Turkey. “Price points continue to fall, which is further fueling the growth of these devices, with basic wearables accounting for 70.3 percent of overall MEA shipments in the second quarter of 2016.

Smart wearables are also gaining traction in the region, but uptake is not so strong as consumers don’t yet perceive much added value in opting for more expensive smart devices.”

Growth coming from early adopters

IDC believes the current growth in the wearable market has come from early adopters, who see the tech as the next big thing. As wearables enter into the mainstream, more affordable options are expected to emerge.

This might be perfect for the MEA region, which has a lower disposable income on average when compared to Western Europe and North America, where wearables are most popular.

IDC expects a 33 percent rise in wearable sales in all of 2016, mostly coming from basic wearables. That lower figure essentially means the MEA region will not see as large a sales discrepancy in future quarters, according to IDC, but will still see some growth over 2015.

Terrorist in the machine: U.S. DOJ fears IoT security threat

Washington DC, United States landmark. National Capitol building with US flag.

The huge wave of Internet of Things (IoT) enabled devices has the U.S. government worried that the technology harbors lurking security threats.

According to a Defense One article, the U.S. Department of Justice has joined other agencies in evaluating IoT technology for national security risks

And with up to 50 billion connected devices coming online by 2020, the government is scrambling to assess threats from the fast evolving technology.

See also: Can ISIS hack the Internet of things? (Uh, no.)

U.S. Assistant Attorney General for National Security John P. Carlin said his division has a group dedicated to assessing IoT technology threats. He said it is critical to fully assess this new technology to properly combat next-generation terrorism tactics.

“Look at the terrorist attack in Nice,” said Carlin. “If our trucks are running in an automated fashion — great efficiencies, great safety, on the one hand — but if we don’t think about how terrorists could exploit that on the front end, and not after they take a truck and run it through a crowd of civilians, we’ll regret it.”

He says that the government moved overly fast in connecting its data store houses which left it vulnerable to state and non-state actors who have stolen valuable information for illicit use.

“We made that mistake once when we moved all of our data, when we digitally connected it, and didn’t focus on how … terrorists and spies could exploit it,” said Carlin. “We can’t do that again when it comes to the Internet of Things, actual missiles, trucks and cars.”

IoT security a theme around the capital

The Justice Department joins several other federal agencies which are delving into the potential risks presented by IoT.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) launched a program in 2012 that to fix vulnerabilities threatening IoT devices.

In 2014 the Central Intelligence Agency admitted their IoT concerns. CIA Deputy Director Dawn Meyerriecks revealed that “smart refrigerators have been used in distributed denial of service attacks,” and discussed smart fluorescent LEDs that “are communicating that they need to be replaced but are also being hijacked for other things.”

The National Security Agency also has its sights set on IoT, which it has said both presents a security threat and a signals intelligence bonanza.
