BrandSweeper keeps eye out for cybersquatters 

IC-Agency has now developed BrandSweeper, a product designed to allow companies to protect usage of their trademarked brand in search engines, and reduce the cost associated with sponsored link advertising.

By evaluating redirected traffic, IC-Agency supplies the client with an analysis spanning over a variety of markets. Corrective actions can then be taken to limit the purchase of these brand names to their owners and authorized retail affiliates.

Marketers and jurists can check to see if their brand is a victim of cybersquatting by requesting a free diagnostic using www.brandsweeper.com

Data Management 

Demand Solutions Pipeline tracks supply chain data 

Demand Management, Inc. introduced Demand Solutions Pipeline, a demand-driven application that provides encrypted access to supply chain data anywhere, anytime.

The Web-enabled Pipeline presents product information in a tree-and-branch representation using plain-language terms, not cryptic item numbers. Users can review entire product families or any other desired category by history, forecast, customer forecast, budget or capacity. Information can by organized by business unit, market segment or sales category, depending on the needs of the individual user. Forecast contributors can attach notes to individual cells or entire categories or time periods. The platform offers unprecedented integration for forecasting specialists, materials managers and sales people in the field, and can easily be configured for executive “dashboard” requirements. 

Built on MS SQL server technology, Pipeline is integrated with the Demands Solutions forecasting and demand planning applications.
