Although inside sales is the fastest growing title in the sales industry with companies hiring inside salespeople at a much higher rate than outside salespeople, little is known about the types of activities that drive their success, particularly the conversion of leads to customers (i.e., customer acquisition). Accordingly, the current project aims to develop a data-driven lead conversion model that incorporates key factors of a selling situation.
An innovative tool is proposed to integrate agile risk, alert, team, safety, and digital data infrastructure management into a Micro Engineering Tech Inc. (METI) current structural health monitoring system (SHM), mobile mapping system (MMS), and building information modeling (BIM) that will be called Agile Monitoring Tool. Agile Monitoring Tool includes a comprehensive project management software (CPMS) package that consists of three systems as follows. First is an SHM; the structure health monitoring development was originally part of a past successful R&D project. Second is a MMS.
Autonomous vehicle technologies and associated smart infrastructures are innovative technologies that can provide many benefits to transportation such as reducing traffic congestion and collisions, improving ridership experience by operating in a more on-demand application providing real-time updates to the rider, and reducing GHG emissions through integration of electric propulsion and route optimization technologies.
This project will develop new operational management systems by combining the elements of Lean, Agile, Green, Resilient and Nutrition (LAGRN) management of the dairy supply chain. The supply chain of Parmalat Canada will be used as a case study. This study is particularly significant for a company like Parmalat Canada, as it is trying to accommodate the conflict and convergence of elements of LAGRN aspects of the supply chain.
Heart failure (HF) is one of the leading causes of hospitalization and rehospitalization in older adults, yet the majority of HF-related readmissions are preventable if patients can manage their treatment at home. One method to help patients who require extra assistance in following their treatment is through mHealth applications. However, these applications are not usable for many older patients due to their complicated design.
The Embedding Project is a public-benefit research project that relies on strong social science research methods to bring together thoughtful sustainability intrapreneurs from across industries and around the world, and harnesses their collective knowledge to develop rigorous and practical guidance that benefits everyone. This internship will offer an MBA student the opportunity to gain experience in both practice and research, while learning from leaders in the field.
There is ample evidence that increasing Canadas innovation, productivity and competitive advantage depends on expanding its skilled digital workforce to both implement and adopt innovative technologies. Despite the pressing need to increase the digital skills and participation of underrepresented groups in information and communications technology (ICT) industry and programs to diversifying computer science, the numbers have remained persistently low. While some initiatives have demonstrated success, often it is transient and not sustained.
Currently there are no effective tools to capture and measure return on investment (ROI) in social media in conjunction with more traditional data points that come from sources such as Flyer Tracking and Point of Sale (POS) systems.
Bells Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) team is collaborating with academic institutions in order to further research and develop cyber security analytics for the protection of critical infrastructure and data. The focus of this research is to create and leverage a traffic classification project specifically for network security purposes. This research to design distributed algorithms fast enough for analyzing massive high-dimensional
data generated by network traffic to detect cyber threats/ attacks and anomaly in the network.
PRO Financial Solutions (PRO) is looking to investigate the benefits of actively including Value at Risk (VaR) in the capital management process of credit unions. Whereas Earnings at Risk (EaR) is a well-established risk measure, VaR still lacks understanding among credit unions. In this research project, the intern will illustrate the relationship between EaR and Duration of Equity, a VaR proxy, and therefor explain VaR in terms of EaR ? a number credit unions are more familiar with.
