TOURtech is excited to announce the acquisition of Event Intelligence Group (EIG), a public safety technology company based in Culver City, CA.  The two companies have led their industries for years, and the acquisition will now allow them to offer an integrated technology and public safety solution to the live event market.

“TOURtech and EIG have been working side by side on event sites for years.  Both companies have always had the same drive for best in class service and progressive technologies,” explains Greg Guzzetta, Founder & CEO of EIG.  “This merger creates an exciting opportunity for us to strengthen and expand our services. We’re stoked to be joining such a great organization!”

“EIG is a solid company that we are happy to add to our TOURtech family.  This is a strategic move to grow our product line and expand our presences on the west coast,” added TOURtech Founder & CEO, Allen Cook.

Greg Guzzetta will remain in a leadership role as Director of the Event Intelligence Group division.  Along with overseeing EIG’s cutting edge CCTV services, Greg will also continue driving the development of the GigAware Incident Management and Dispatch software, with the release of Version 2 coming soon.  The combination of these two products, along with Greg’s experience in public safety technologies, positions TOURtech to increase their value and add to their customer base.

TOURtech has seen an increased need for event security, especially in light of recent events. Having a solution that provides a high level of event monitoring with faster response time to incidents will make large scale events more manageable. They welcome Event Intelligence Group to the TOURtech family and anticipate great things as they continue with the 2019 season and start planning for 2020.

Chinsay, the leading provider of contract digitalisation solutions in the commodity and freight markets, is announcing today the completion of the first fully digitalised iron ore trade, through a trial achieved in partnership with Rio Tinto and Cargill‘s Metals business on Chinsay’s Intelligent Contract Platform (ICP).

In using ICP, Rio Tinto and Cargill collaborated on a single platform to dramatically reduce the time it takes to create, issue and approve commodity contracts from several days to under two hours. The digitalisation of this fundamental trade process creates the opportunity to automate and deliver post-trade efficiencies by linking front-, middle- and back-office functions.

Colin Hayward, Chinsay CEO, said: “This is a technological milestone for the industry, and we are delighted Rio Tinto and Cargill Metals chose to partner with us and use our ICP as the core technology to create this advance. We are constantly collaborating with clients, market participants, tech vendors and industry consortia to extend digitalisation further along the commodity trade lifecycle.”

“The Intelligent Contract Platform is a great tool that has the potential to benefit the entire ferrous industry,” said Lee Kirk, Managing Director for Cargill’s Metals business. “This is a great example of how we can leverage advancements in technology to benefit from increased speed, transparency and efficiencies that enable us to serve our customers and suppliers better.”

ICP is state-of-the-art technology which allows companies to digitalise pre-trade processes early in the deal lifecycle, creating an agreed contract dataset that can be seamlessly integrated with other operational systems, functions and processes, enabling transparency and traceability across the supply chain.  ICP prepares clients for the use of technologies such as blockchain, ML, AI and electronic trade documentation solutions.
