ActiveStandards and Cognifide Announce New Integration for Adobe Experience Manager to Support Digital Governance

London, United Kingdom (PRWEB) April 15, 2015

ActiveStandards, the leader in enterprise digital governance solutions, along with Cognifide, the leading provider of Adobe® Experience Manager (AEM) services, today announced the integration of its digital governance SaaS platform with AEM, enabling digital marketers to seamlessly validate the quality and compliance of their digital content at the point of publication.

“AEM is a market-leader in delivering digital experiences and is the CMS of choice for many of our customers” said Simon Lande, CEO, ActiveStandards. “The new integration builds digital governance support directly into the AEM publication workflow, closing the air gap between content authoring and digital quality assurance, so customers can test and optimize their digital content without leaving the AEM environment. This development is part of our road map to integrate with all the main CMS platforms used by our clients.”

The integration has been developed in partnership with Cognifide, Europe’s leading provider of AEM services.

Cleve Gibbon, Chief Technology Officer – Cognifide, said, “As global organizations establish disruptive and differentiated digital estates, governance is now an executive level agenda item to enforce rich and consistent content-driven experiences at scale and at speed. As Europe’s leading provider of AEM services, we work closely with Adobe to deliver useful and usable integrated solutions to real customer problems in the digital marketing space. The ActiveStandards AEM integration we’ve developed simplifies the way global brands govern their digital estates and enforces centralized content standards and policies at a global, regional and local level.”

Shell International, recognized as a leader in online excellence, have been an ActiveStandards client since the service first launched in 2006.

Chris Muscutt, Digital Development Manager for Shell International, commented: “At Shell, our global web teams use ActiveStandards alongside AEM on a daily basis to protect the quality and compliance of our digital content. We have worked closely with ActiveStandards to help enhance this integration so that content authoring and digital governance work together during the editing process rather than as a separate review stage. This will ultimately speed up time to market and continue to put quality and good governance right at the center of our publication process.”

Business challenges the AEM integration addresses:

    Streamlines the deployment and management of digital governance with direct AEM workflow integration.
    Optimizes the online experience for website users, improves marketing effectiveness and mitigates risk.
    Drives continuing improvements in digital operations with sophisticated reporting, bench-marking and compliance analytics.
    Simplifies the management of complex, multi-stakeholder online environments.

Legal Action Workshop Has Completed 700 Probates

Glendale, CA (PRWEB) December 20, 2014

Legal Action Workshop is an Estate Planning and Probate Law Firm located in the quaint and picturesque town of Glendale, California in Los Angeles County. The firm has been practicing Estate Planning and Probate law for more than 36 years! Legal Action Workshop finds itself in the enviable position of handling more Probates than most other firms. In fact, the law firm closes about two Probates each month totaling about 700 cases to date!

Attorney Stephen Marc Drucker admits that his Probate practice keeps him very busy. He states, “I enjoy handling Probate cases. I am very familiar with the process as well as the courts and the judges. All in all, my knowledge of court procedure makes it easier to handle the cases and complete them in a timely manner.”

In California, Probate is the process that may occur when a person passes away without a Trust. If the individual had real estate or personal assets that are valued at over $ 150,000 then a Probate would be needed in order to change ownership from the decedent to the heirs or beneficiaries. The person may or may not have had a Will. If the decedent had a Will then beneficiaries would be listed and an executor may have been named. If an executor was not named, or if the named person does not wish to perform the task or nominate another, then the court would appoint an administrator for the Probate. If there is no Will, then the heirs would be determined by intestate succession.

The speed with which Probates are finalized can vary from 8 months to many years. Most Probates that are not contested are finalized faster. A ‘contested’ Probate is one in which one or more heirs or beneficiaries are not in agreement or may think that wrong-doing has occurred. In a contested Probate matter, some of the heirs or beneficiaries may wish to hire an Attorney to represent their own interests. This usually results in a much longer timeframe for the completion of the Probate.

Legal Action Workshop handles predominantly uncontested Probates. In these cases, heirs or beneficiaries are usually in agreement so the Probates can be handled efficiently and in a shorter timeframe. Attorney Drucker states, “If the Probate includes real estate, then the heirs or beneficiaries decide whether to keep the property or sell. If there are personal assets these would be distributed once a number of steps are addressed such as inventory & appraisal, creditors, and debt. Since each Probate is different, the steps taken to the point of final distribution will also vary.” Most importantly, when clients consult with Attorney Drucker, they are advised as to the Probate process in detail as well as the cost.

Clients can speak with Attorney Drucker by phone or in his office. He also uses Skype or other devices for face-to-face dialogue if desired. In essence, Attorney Drucker will advise the client and start the Probate based on the convenience of the client. In our busy world, it’s nice to know that there is a ‘client focused’ Law Firm ready to help!

Haley Real Estate Group Wins Multi-Housing News Renovation Award

Omaha, Neb. (PRWEB) October 23, 2014

Haley Real Estate Group, an Omaha, Neb.-based real estate investment firm, and its property management affiliate DEI Communities today announced that the company’s renovation of a 223-unit Oklahoma City apartment community formerly known as Park Place won the 2014 Multi-Housing News Gold Excellence Award for Best Affordable Value-Add Renovation.

After purchasing the poorly maintained, Section 8 property, Haley invested $ 8 million and assigned day-to-day operations to DEI to responsibly relocate residents and transform it into a modern, market-rate community that would attract some of the more than 20,000 government, education and biotechnology employees working nearby. The community located in Oklahoma City’s downtown medical-government corridor was renamed The Capitol on 28th to better reflect its new aesthetic appeal and high-end finishes.

“We are honored to receive this award from Multi-Housing News for our efforts to revitalize a struggling apartment community and add significant value to a growing neighborhood,” said Doug Hastings, principal of Haley Real Estate Group and senior vice president of property management for DEI Communities. “Transforming Park Place into The Capitol on 28th required a level of innovative thinking, focus and perseverance that was above and beyond any other investment we’ve made, and we’re proud to receive recognition for this incredible accomplishment.”

For the first time in its history, DEI decided to not renew any leases and offered a comprehensive relocation package to encourage residents to move out early, allowing extensive renovations to commence on individual apartment homes. DEI also worked closely with the Oklahoma City Housing Authority and Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency to prepare residents for the apartment search and relocation process. Additionally, the company reached out to 10 neighboring low income and Section 8 communities to pre-schedule open houses to match residents with new apartment communities.

“The living conditions at the community prior to our purchase were so poor that we wanted to move quickly to substantially upgrade the standard of living with the best interests of the residents in mind,” Hastings said. “It was very important to us that every resident receive a relocation package that would not only encourage them to move, but also help them enhance their quality of life. Doing the right thing, in turn, allowed us to significantly improve the living conditions at The Capital on 28th and add tremendous value to the neighborhood.”

Because of how well received the relocation packages were, the community was vacant in 10 weeks, and DEI was able to complete the substantial renovations quickly in less than 18 months. Each of the 223 units received upgraded finishes and amenities, including new lighting and plumbing fixtures, energy-efficient appliances, shaker-style natural wood cabinets and brushed nickel hardware. All of the units were fitted with new carpet in bedrooms and either stained concrete or laminate hardwood in the main living areas. In addition, the community received extensive exterior and luxury amenity upgrades, including a saltwater pool, dog park with bathing stations and a multimedia clubhouse.

The Multi-Housing News Excellence Awards honor apartment communities for excellence in a number of categories, including Best Affordable Value-add Renovation. The Best Affordable Value-Add Renovation award is awarded to renovations that overcome design, structural and construction obstacles, substantially improve financial performance and enhance the appeal of the target market. The judges also take into consideration the use of noteworthy or innovative construction materials and methods.

Dedicated to her alma mater, she is on the Board of Trustees of Florida International University and is also on the Advisory Board of the Florida International University College of Medicine. Passionate about art, she is an avid collector of photography and works by mid-career and emerging Latin American artists.
