Thryv and Google Partner to Streamline Communication for Small Businesses

Thryv Holdings, Google | August 05, 2022

Thryv Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:THRY), the small business platform for growing small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), is pleased to announce a new integration with Google’s Business Messages to help streamline communication for small businesses who have a growing number of inbound contact options. Thryv is a partner of Google’s Business Messages, a mobile conversational channel that combines entry points on Google Maps, Search and brand websites to create rich, asynchronous messaging experiences that customers find easily accessible and drive business results. Google’s Business Messages integrates within Thryv’s real-time, centralized inbox, which launched last year and allows businesses to have a single thread of communication rather than relying on pockets of data located in individual applications. “Rapid expansion of communication technologies has helped usher in a new era of communication when it comes to customer service for businesses,” said Ryan Cantor, Chief Product Officer at Thryv. “Rapid expansion of communication technologies has helped usher in a new era of communication when it comes to customer service for businesses,” said Ryan Cantor, Chief Product Officer at Thryv. “But only businesses with robust customer service teams and constant availability are benefiting from these advances. Local, service-based businesses, like a local roofing company, may not be able to respond to web chat messages quickly enough for customer satisfaction because they’re on the roof. Thryv’s integration with Google’s Business Messages helps small businesses benefit from said advancements too. These local businesses don’t have to decide between losing revenue and running their business (implying it’s a trade-off by example). The 2020s will continue to be about small business cloud adoption, and we will be there along the way with product updates to support our small business customers.” The rise of messaging platforms has created more lines of communication for businesses than ever before, and small business owners are being pressured to adopt these new tools or lose business. Sending messages to businesses has become the new normal. A 2020 Juniper Research study found that global mobile business messaging traffic would reach 2.7 trillion messages by the end of that year, up 10% from the previous year. Companies with 24/7 customer service availability are built to dominate in a market where speed is key, but small businesses are offline more than they’re online. Thryv’s latest integration helps businesses make sure they’re not missing out on critical communications. Thryv provides automation capabilities enabling businesses to respond to customers quickly and keep track of ongoing conversations.

(NASDAQ:THRY) is a global software and marketing services company that empowers small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), franchises, and agencies to grow and modernize their operations so they can compete and win in today’s economy.

Altair Names VirtualCAE Channel Partner for Brazil

Altair, VirtualCAE | July 15, 2022

Altair, a global leader in computational science and artificial intelligence (AI), announced that it is welcoming VirtualCAE, a national engineering, technology, simulation and innovation company, as a new channel partner for the Brazilian market. VirtualCAE will offer Altair’s virtual simulation solutions and services for a range of industry sectors, including the mobility (on-road equipment, agricultural machinery, automotive, including heavy vehicle manufacturers), aeronautics, and oil and gas sectors, among others. The partnership will enable the democratization of Altair’s simulation and data analytics solutions by providing small- and medium-sized organizations with world-class, intuitive software capabilities. “Altair is a major provider of simulation, data, and vehicle dynamics solutions, and our customers include all of Brazil’s automotive industry companies,” said Valdir Mendes Cardoso, Brazil country manager, Altair. “Altair is a major provider of simulation, data, and vehicle dynamics solutions, and our customers include all of Brazil’s automotive industry companies,” said Valdir Mendes Cardoso, Brazil country manager, Altair. “Together with VirtualCAE, we will expand our presence and offer products like Altair SimSolid, EDEM, Radioss, and MotionSolve, all renowned for their vehicle dynamics analysis prowess and power.” “The partnership with Altair represents the union of two leaders in optimization and multidisciplinary simulation software. The two companies have a strong synergy and a commitment to spread the usage and adoption of optimization technologies, providing not only software, but also services and training,” said Valmir Fleischmann, operations director, VirtualCAE. “Altair’s products, such as Altair OptiStruct, expand our offer beyond topological optimization and advance to topographic, shape, and parametric optimization. We know how much optimization can bring benefits to Brazilian customers, both related to the reduction of mass to overcome raw material cost increases and to meet energy efficiency criteria, as well as those related to the reduction of development time.” Among the sectors that stand to benefit most from the new partnership is the automotive sector, where VirtualCAE has extensive expertise and Altair offers powerful solutions for electrification, crash, and vehicle rollover analysis, including trucks and buses. Additionally, users can apply this technology to on-road implements, agricultural machinery, and agrobusiness in general. Altair’s automotive product portfolio has been growing rapidly, especially with the acquisitions of Powersim and SimSolid, to help meet the development needs of vehicle electrification. SimSolid is a revolutionary tool that lets users simulate complex models quickly and efficiently, which also allows users to evaluate more design alternatives. “SimSolid breaks paradigms by not using mesh and reduces the work of weeks into a few hours, as it performs full-featured structural analysis on CAD assemblies in minutes and eliminates geometry preparation and meshing – the two most time-consuming, experience-demanding, and error-prone tasks in conventional structural simulation,” said Fleischmann. “In my opinion, looking back over the last 10 years, the meshless technology embedded in SimSolid was the greatest innovation brought to the structural simulation market.” Powersim acts on the design and simulation of power electronics and motor drives, offers higher simulation speed, and ensures accurate results at the system level, allowing easy implementation and seamless adoption in any environment, providing robust design and simulation for various industrial applications. Altair works with a global network of channel and technology partners. To learn more or to become a partner, visit: https://www.altair.com/partners.
