iWave's New Game-Changing Multi-Lens Scoring Elevates Fundraising Customization To New Heights

iWave #1 Fundraising Solution For Nonprofits

iWave Fundraising Solutions For Nonprofits

iWave's Industry First Multi-Lens Scoring revolutionizes how nonprofits can view their donors from completely different perspectives for even more customization

CHARLOTTETOWNE, PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND, CANADA, January 19, 2021 / — iWave, the industry’s top-rated fundraising intelligence solution, announced today the availability of its newest feature, Multi-Lens Scoring. This revolutionary feature has never been seen before in the nonprofit industry and it furthers iWave’s leadership in the fundraising intelligence space. With it, nonprofits can easily and quickly view their donors from completely different perspectives to help them maximize fundraising goals.

Our industry-first fundraising feature elevates customization to new heights
Nonprofit organizations can fully customize their fundraising experience in iWave based on their unique donors, missions, and goals. To understand how valuable this new feature can be, it’s important to know how iWave scores prospects. iWave is the only solution that uses affinity scores to provide a holistic view of a donor. We believe a donor’s giving interest is crucial to knowing how they will give to you. iWave’s customizable scoring preferences for capacity, propensity and affinity provide the foundation for Multi-Lens Scoring. With this new feature, you can now customize your searches based on even more personal data for a complete, well-rounded donor search.

You can use Multi-Lens Scoring to:
● Find your TOP prospects who care about your mission
● Sort and cultivate donors into groups that help you reach your GOALS, faster
● Cut your research time by seeing MORE information in a comprehensive way
● Find donors in places you’ve NEVER looked before
● Be ahead of the curve and ready to ADAPT to any organization or campaign changes

Using affinity to your fullest advantage – a new perspective
As an example, a hospital may have a capital campaign to raise funds for an Arts Therapy Facility. Within iWave’s settings, the hospital is able to select Healthcare as the primary affinity (giving interest) to find donors that have donated to healthcare organizations in the past and have a high capacity and history of giving. Thanks to Multi-Lens Scoring, the customization doesn’t stop here.

Now the hospital can set up another lens by selecting Arts and Culture as the primary affinity. Under this view, they will uncover prospects that have a track record of donating to arts and culture causes or those who are an executive or a board member at an arts and culture organization.

Then they can segment top prospects into two lists based on their affinity and look at them side-by-side. The fundraising team can then engage with each group using tailored messaging that focuses on their giving interest in either healthcare or arts and culture.

“Multi-lens screening makes it possible to change the results of your data set depending on the precise propensity, affinity, and giving capacity your organization needs to support each team and each project. From annual fund to membership to major and principal giving, multi-lens screening pinpoints the prospects you should reach out to now. I cannot wait to work with our clients to help them take advantage of this powerful new feature,” said Erin Lynch Moran, Partner, The Solas Group.

Change the game with 5 unique lenses
Ultimately, this innovative new feature means even more customization for your fundraising efforts. With 5 lenses to try, fundraisers can compare and contrast results, put together multiple lists to work through, and broaden horizons to new potential projects and donor segments.

“We pride ourselves in providing innovations quickly that will have an impact on your organization even more rapidly. We knew our clients needed something to set them apart and fundraise more effectively. Sometimes, it’s about taking a step back and looking at things differently,” said Mary Cote, VP Product, iWave.

This new feature is part of iWave’s cloud-native platform that boasts a fresh modern design and intuitive layout. The platform is faster, more powerful, and more scalable than before, allowing new enhancements and functionality to be added quickly and easily.

“At iWave, we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of nonprofit fundraising innovation with an agile development process that leverages client and industry insights to continuously bring more value, along with the best customer service in the industry to our nonprofits, higher education, and healthcare organizations," said Ross Beattie, President & CEO, iWave. "We know we’re changing the game with this new
feature and we are excited to see how our clients can succeed and do more for their communities with our help.”

In some to many instances-financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the claim does not involve suing the navy. The person we are trying to identify is over 60 years old and their asbestos exposure occurred on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard in the 1960s or 1970s. It does not matter if this person smoked cigarettes.

Social Assistance Market Employs Big Data Analytics To Gather Insights For Social Services

Social Assistance Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact And Recovery To 2030

Social Assistance Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact And Recovery To 2030

The Business Research Company’s Social Assistance Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact and Recovery to 2030

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, January 19, 2021 / — New year, new updates! Our reports have been revised for market size, forecasts, and strategies to take on 2021 after the COVID-19 impact:

Social assistance providers are increasingly using data-driven approaches such as big data and predictive analytics to gather insights related to social assistance services. Predictive analytics involves the use of data, statistical algorithms and machine learning techniques to identify the likelihood of future outcomes based on historical data. Big data analytics involves extracting hidden patterns and useful information from a large set of data. These techniques help in reporting, detecting, or correcting a non-compliance while monitoring target population. In the social services industry overview for example, Hillside Family of Agencies, a human services provider for youth and families, is using predictive analytics to reduce the dropout rates among youth in high school. Good Samaritan Society, a non-profit provider of senior care and services, has partnered with IBM to use big data and analytics software for its clinical and operational data about the patients.

The global social assistance market is expected to grow from $1.28 trillion in 2020 to $1.43 trillion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.3%. The growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. As per social assistance industry analysis, the healthcare and social assistance market is expected to reach $1.95 trillion in 2025 at a CAGR of 8%.

Squarex Announces End of Phase 2 Meeting with FDA for its Cold Sore Prevention Asset

Typical cold sore infection caused by Herpes simplex virus

Image of the Herpes simplex virus, or herpes labialis, which causes cold sores

Squarex Pharma announced updated results from its successful Phase 2 clinical study on humans with its novel asset SQX770 for prevention of cold sores.

We believe our novel drug SQX770 addresses a large, global unmet clinical need for those people suffering from frequent cold sores due to herpes labialis. This is a $600 million market in the USA.”

— Hugh McTavish

ST PAUL, MINNESOTA, USA, January 19, 2021 / — Squarex Pharma (SQX), a St. Paul, Minnesota, USA-based company, announced updated results from its Phase 2 clinical study on humans with its novel asset SQX770 for prevention of cold sores, also known as herpes labialis or oral herpes, an illness caused by herpes simplex virus, usually type 1 (HSV-1).

SQX770 is a unique, first in class topical immunomodulator. SQX770 is the only product shown to reduce the number of cold sore events or flareups as well as their severity.

About 50% of the Western population is infected with HSV-1. Herpes outbreaks give rise to cold sores, usually seen as painful sores or blisters around the lips of the patient. Currently there are no preventative treatments, only pills, creams, and ointments to be used once cold sores appear in order to shorten the outbreak. Current drugs do nothing to prevent reoccurrence of outbreaks or reduce the number of outbreaks.

SQX770 addresses a very substantial worldwide market—2.1% of the population has 6 or more outbreaks per year and 15% have 1 or more.

SQX770 is applied topically and has a systemic effect: one topical dose applied with a dermal patch to the upper arm prevents outbreaks for three months. An earlier Phase 1 study at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, USA, showed that SQX770 has significant efficacy versus placebo in reducing the recurrence of cold sores.

SQX770 is thought to work by stimulating the sufferer’s immune system via the dendritic cell network in the skin and stimulation of T-cell activity. SQX770 is intended to be available by a doctor’s prescription although ultimately it could be available over the counter in pharmacies.

The Phase 2 study with 139 patients using SQX770 at 5 sites confirmed this in showing reduced number of cold sore outbreaks and further showed reduction in severity of the (fewer) outbreaks that occurred.

Thus, efficacy and safety have been demonstrated in each of two double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trials. A third clinical trial showed significant improvement in cellular immune response to the HSV-1 virus after dosing with SQX770.

Patents covering SQX770 are issued in US, Europe, and Japan until at least 2036 and pending in China, Canada, India, and Australia

Squarex announces that is has completed an End-of-Phase 2 meeting with the U.S. FDA which has provided a clear and achievable path to a New Drug Application in the USA following ultimately a routine Phase 3 study. It will pursue a similar path for regulatory approval in Europe and the rest of the world.

Squarex seeks a global strategic partner with which it can collaborate to exploit its SQX770 drug and take it through final clinical development to market authorisation.

Hugh McTavish, CEO of Squarex, said “Results from patients recruited into our clinical study are very promising; we believe that our novel drug asset SQX770 addresses a large, global unmet clinical need for those people suffering from frequent cold sores due to herpes labialis. Our end of Phase 2 meeting with FDA has been very positive and helpful in pointing the way forward for marketing approval for SQX770. We estimate that the annual market for prevention of oral herpes in the USA is about $600 million.”

Edmund Champness, Optibrium’s Chief Scientific Officer, commented, “Having surveyed the available reaction-based enumeration tools, and found no solutions that met their requirements, our collaborators asked us to develop this feature. We thank them for their input, which was instrumental in shaping an industry-leading capability with the elegance and functionality they’ve come to expect from StarDrop. Added to which, after the successful launch of our AI platform Cerella, we are excited to provide our users with seamless access to a groundbreaking AI system through its integration in StarDrop 7.0.”

Dental implants help replace missing teeth and stabilize dentures on the upper and lower arch.

CENTER VALLEY, PA, UNITED STATES, January 19, 2021 / — Castle Dental in Center Valley is offering full-arch dental implants. While dentures may grow loose over time, removable full-arch dental implants are a convenient alternative.

When multiple teeth are missing, a full-arch denture can be attached to implants placed in the upper or lower jaw. This stabilizes the denture to keep it from slipping or sliding and also allows for the denture to be removed.

“A removable restoration using dental implants is more hygienic and more cost-effective,” explains Dr. Matthew Lang, dentist in Center Valley.

Fixed full-arch restorations are also offered using six to eight implants. However, if a patient is only missing one or two teeth, a single dental implant is suggested instead.

Dental implants in Center Valley remain one of Castle Dental’s most popular treatment options. An abutment and crown give them a natural look and feel and they boast a success rate well over 90%, with supplemental procedures available to help aid in healing.

In addition to dental implants, Castle Dental also offers crowns, veneers, and general dentistry. To learn more, request an appointment with the Lehigh Valley dentist by visiting
