SmartFlow and Connor Partner to Provide Software Vendors with Leading License Compliance and Monetization Solutions

Combined Expertise Gives Users Ability to Unlock Existing Potential for Generating Revenue Immediately During COVID-19 Restrictions

LOS ANGELES and SAN FRANCISCO –– May 14, 2020 –– SmartFlow Compliance Solutions and Connor Consulting Corp today inked a strategic partnership to provide software vendors with license compliance and monetization solutions to maximize revenue generation and expand the effectiveness of their compliance programs.

“COVID-19 underscores the need for an integrated, comprehensive approach to software licensing through complementary offerings,” notes Ted Miracco, CEO of SmartFlow, a leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider of software anti-piracy, business intelligence and monetization technology. “Travel restrictions and work-at-home policies make traditional software audits close to impossible. SmartFlow and Connor take a data-driven approach with innovative technology to do remote audits, offer automation throughout the process and unlock potential for generating revenue immediately.”

The strategic partnership solves a user need through complementary offerings for a comprehensive data-driven approach to software licensing. Under terms of the agreement, Connor will integrate SmartFlow’s business intelligence data and analytics into its ConnorX customer engagement platform. This will enable SmartFlow users to maximize revenue across the mid-market and small- and medium-size business (SMB) segments, as well as leverage SmartFlow data in their traditional software audit and targeting activities. The combined offering will unlock revenue across software vendors’ user base for both piracy and compliance initiatives. 

“SmartFlow and Connor bring an unparalleled offering to license compliance and piracy challenges,” adds Jay Buck, managing director of Connor, a global professional services and solutions firm providing high-value software licensing compliance services with cutting-edge technology solutions. “We view data, technology and automation as key elements to evolve the compliance discussion.

Triple Punch Extends The Life Of Your Smart Factory Indoor BLE Beacon

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

One emerging element of smart factories is asset management, namely the tracking of man and machine. Tracking is deployed to achieve two purposes—as a digital twin emulation mechanism to assess inefficiencies on the factory floor and as a predictive maintenance mechanism to determine impending failures. In this design solution, we review the challenges of powering a BLE beacon with a disposable battery and introduce a voltage regulator boost converter that, thanks to a triple punch of high efficiency, low shutdown current, and low quiescent current, sustains its operation for two years on a single disposable AA battery.
