World Telemedia Invites Entrepreneurs to pitch to investors

The telemedia industry has long been driven by entrepreneurs and has thrived on turning great ideas and technology into money making services – and the World Telemedia Show has always been the showcase for unveiling these developments.

Now in its 29th year, the show is looking to further drive this entrepreneurial spirit by running a series of lunches at the next event in Marbella in October where those with great ideas or businesses that need to take that next step can pitch to Investors.

Focusing on value added services (VAS), buyers, sellers, investors and mentors will all be introduced to each other over a 5-star lunch.  A total of six companies will be given the opportunity to privately pitch their ideas.  Investor pitch proposals should be submitted in writing to Jarvis Todd jarvis@wtevent.co.uk by 21 July 2018

“We believe that the people who attend World Telemedia are the early adopters and adaptors of new technology who are focused on the and look for the practical money making application of technology within the Value Added Services Sector,”  says Jarvis Todd, CEO, World Telemedia Ltd. “By connecting those with great new ideas or existing fledgling businesses with those with the knowledge and business acumen to take their ideas to the next level, World Telemedia is driving VAS both now and into the future.”

World Telemedia looks forward to another successful event in Marbella on 8-10 October.  An enlightening series of seminars and country updates, a deal-making expo hub and the most glamourous business networking around has been planned as the backdrop for serious deal making on-site.  A must attend event since 1989, World Telemedia is focused on Driving Value Added Services and Monetising Content.

Have you secured your site ready for the Chrome changes in July?

Starting from July Chrome will now mark all websites that do not display https pages as non secure.

From July with the release of Chrome 68 all those sites who are still on http will now display at ‘not secure’ according to Google. You can read more about this from their blog post here: https://security.googleblog.com/2018/02/a-secure-web-is-here-to-stay.html Following on from this Chrome will also begin to phase out the secure green lock icon, favouring to draw attention to those sites that are not secure instead.

Don’t be caught out! It is not too late to get your site secured and get your SSL certificate in place.

aimm provides ADR scheme for members

aimm and Consumer Dispute Resolutions Services Ltd. have formed an agreement to provide Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Services for aimm members. Branded CommsADR, the service will allow aimm’s merchant members who run into an impasse with a consumer dispute to refer the consumer and the dispute to ADR. CommsADR will independently examine both sides of the dispute and provide a binding decision to resolve the dispute. This decision can be weighted either towards the merchant or consumer but each case will be accompanied by a report explaining how the outcome was achieved. The consumer and merchant can use the ADR report if the dispute escalates to PSA or to the consumer’s network operator.

aimm Managing Director (interim) Rory Maguire stated: There will always be a level of disputes from consumers if they forget the digital purchase they have made or have made the purchase inadvertently and  our members provide top class customer service to deal with these issues. Where an impasse occurs, it can take the heat out of the situation by passing the complaint and the complainant to an independent body for resolution. A merchant with good customer service will embrace ADR and we are pleased to have negotiated a special rate for our members. For more information read the aimm and CommsADR literature on the aimm website.
