Technical intelligence, in contrast to IQ, is the kind of insight you need to manage complex information systems.

Most people believe that prescription drug prices are relatively uniform among pharmacies, but nothing could be further from the truth. If one lacks prescription drug coverage, prices for the same drug can vary by a multiple of sixteen or more at pharmacies on the same street. Even consumers with insurance coverage often choose pharmacies and/or medications that do not provide the best value to them or their health insurance provider, which is often a self-insured employer that ultimately pays for the higher priced medication. The prescription medication market in the United States is a $300 billion market. WeRx and WeRx for Employers is a user-friendly platform that provides consumers and employees with price information and all available pharmacy options for their medications. WeRx has been recommended by Consumer Reports Best Buy Drugs and seen in many publications including Harvard Health, PBS, Univision, Miami Herald, and the Charlotte Observer. Read more
The Eye Trax Solar Powered Construction Camera allows Owner, General Contractors, Developers and Project Managers to keep an eye on their construction sites without having to travel to the location repeatedly. Since Construction sites don't have power available, we utilize a small 14"x14" Solar panel to power our 12V construction camera. Users have the ability to view LIVE photos of the project, as well as create unlimited logins for their Customers, and anyone they want to keep an eye on the build. Construction cameras typically are used to document the progress of a project, as well as provide vital information about the structure, but Eye Trax added another extremely valuable feature to our cameras, SECURITY! Eye Trax uses a PIR Motion Detector which will trigger the camera to start taking pictures in bursts of 5 immediately upon detection. This allows users to be notified automatically if someone unwanted enters their job-site after hours and prevents construction theft. Read more
