Interview and Interrogation Training: Time Considerations

first_imgIn this week’s International Association of Interviewers interview and interrogation training tip provided by Wicklander-Zulawski, Brett Ward, CFI, divisional vice president of client relations and business development for WZ, asks: What’s the best time to do an interview? There may not ever be a good time, depending on the type of conversation that you’re planning to have, but there are definitely times that are better than others.Some folks have conducted investigations the second that someone has come back from a medical leave of absence. It might be best to pause and do a little homework before that.Is there a specific time of day that is best for doing these interviews? It’s probably good to give people half an hour after they come into work. What if they had a root canal and are on medication when they arrive? Think about doing it maybe half an hour after lunch, or half an hour before they’re supposed to go home in the evening, so they’re not pressured for time, nor can they say that they had a glass of wine at lunch (and therefore didn’t have all their faculties).- Sponsor – Think it through before you start the conversation.Every loss prevention investigator should continuously strive to enhance their investigative interviewing skills as part of an ongoing commitment to best-in-class interviewing performance. This includes holding ourselves to an elite standard of interview and interrogation training that is ethical, moral and legal while demanding excellence in the pursuit of the truth.

OffiSync Introduces Real-Time Co-Authoring Between Microsoft Office and Google Docs

first_imgTags:#Google#Microsoft#web#Web Office But now, OfficSync users can use the software of their choice – Office or Docs – and their changes are sent to the other collaborators in real-time. The changes don’t magically occur, keystroke by keystroke, but are pushed to others when the “Save” button is clicked in Microsoft Office or when changes to the Google Docs online version are saved. Office users will see a pop-up message informing them the file was changed and they can then preview the changes, ignore them or update the file. That message is sent in real-time to all users. To download the newly updated OfficSync plugin, visit offisync.com/download (available at approximately 12:30 PM EST today). A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… OffiSync is launching an all-new version of its Microsoft Office to Google Docs synchronization tool, a plugin that’s a “must-have” for anyone still straddling the two worlds of office suites: that is, the desktop-based world of Microsoft software and the web-based world of Google Docs. In the updated version of OffiSync, set to arrive minutes from now, you’ll be able to co-author documents in real-time between Microsoft Office and Google Docs, no matter what version of the Office software you use. There are a few other new features too, including improvements to search, added Google Sites support and the ability to store any file type, but it’s the co-authoring feature that’s today’s biggest reveal. Real-Time Co-Authoring!Previously, the OfficSync plugin integrated into Microsoft Office’s toolbar, appearing as a new menu or tab in its ribbon interface. From here, you could choose to open, save, search or share a Microsoft Office file in any of the suite’s flagship programs (Word, Excel or PowerPoint). However, when it came to the “collaboration” aspect – the standout feature of Google Docs, OfficSync only provided the tools that gave others’ access to files hosted on Google Docs. It didn’t provide the real-time editing capabilities, such as those found in Google’s spreadsheets program (or, as of yesterday, in Google’s documents program, too). Other FeaturesIn addition to the standout real-time collaboration feature, OfficSync also now includes a few other features worth mentioning too, such as:Support for any file type: OfficSync now supports Docs’ ability to store files of any type. What this means for Office users is that you can chose to store your Office documents in their native format without “converting” them to Google Docs format. This is ideal for preserving some of the advanced formatting that Docs doesn’t support. Improved Google Sites Support: OfficSync automatically detects all the Google Sites you have access to and lets you edit those files. You can even create new Google Sites from within Office. OfficSync Task Pane: A sidebar panel for Office that shows collaborators, recent documents, documents starred in Google Docs, recently shared documents and more. Improved Integrated Search: The new version includes improved integrated Google Search/Google Image Search functionality, available from the toolbar. Beta support for Office 2010, the next release of Microsoft Office software, itself still in beta, too. center_img sarah perez You can see the co-authoring feature in action here on YouTube.  Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Usergrid + Apigee Will Lead to Cloud-based Mobile Data Tool, Say CEOs

first_imgOver the last year, a firm called Usergrid has been building an open source tool for leading mobile app developers through the process of creating back-end services for managing users. The Usergrid philosophy is contrary to quite a lot of the cloud-centered design methodology promoted by SaaS – the idea that the server can do everything, and a thin device can serve as the portal. Instead, Usergrid has promoted the idea of richer mobile apps that use Web services and APIs in a more passive, RESTful manner.Late last year on its company blog, Usergrid stated its intent to build out to a cloud-delivered service – essentially, transferring its intelligence to the cloud to help devs build intelligence on client devices. This morning, the firm got its wish, though maybe in a way not everyone expected: Usergrid has been acquired by cloud-based API modeling tool provider Apigee. And as both companies’ CEOs tell ReadWriteWeb, the fruit of their new relationship is a little ways down the road.“The goal for Usergrid is to be able to provide the developer with an instant mobile back-end stack,” explains Ed Anuff, who up until today was Usergrid’s CEO. “Most mobile apps need a cloud back-end that provides them with a lot of their key capabilities. Mobile apps are user-centric, they’re data-driven, and they need to be powered by a highly scalable back end.” For example, mobile apps need standardized connections with social networks, not just to share content and compare social graphs but to authenticate identities.“When a developer looks to use a mobile back end, it saves maybe 80% of the cost of developing an application,” Anuff remarks. “Otherwise they’d have to do that all themselves.” scott fulton 7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac… Tags:#APIs#hack How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees? Related Posts Why You Love Online Quizzes What will a pairing of Apigee and Usergrid accomplish that Usergrid wasn’t just about ready to do on its own? “First, it’s going to allow us to get this to market in a faster way,” responds Anuff. “We’re going to be able to deliver it as a cloud service, which was our goal in the launch of Usergrid. Mobile app developers want this to be a seamless, one-click experience. With Apigee, there was a common vision in the way that APIs should be built and consumed.”During Usergrid’s last round of beta testing, Anuff reports, the amount of API traffic generated by mobile apps was staggering, even compared against the firm’s own expectations. Building on Apigee’s existing platform could provide Usergrid with the more robust service performance its testers have been looking for.But does this acquisition lead to a single Apigee tool, going beyond simply accessing and modeling API functions to the point where developers could instantiate them, populate them with user data, and modify them until they’re in proper working order to include with their own mobile apps’ source code? This is a question that Apigee CEO Chet Kapoor deferred for a while, though the tool for his deferment looks curiously like a velvet curtain wrapped around a gift-wrapped box tied with a bow.“Stay tuned,” Kapoor responds to RWW. “We understand the problem really well, and it’s something that we’re working on. Having Ed join us is going to accelerate those plans in a big way.”Some of the problems Apigee had been working to address, even before this morning’s Usergrid acquisition, deal with the rapidly expanding and splintering nature of APIs themselves. They’re changing almost too fast for any one service to keep up with, which in a sense mandates the need for a kind of Apigee cloud app that works in reverse – absorbing new API functions from their own developers, so app devs can work with them right away. That’s an infrastructure problem that Kapoor confirms to us his company has been working with, saying, “We’re going to make that infrastructure available very soon.” Growing Phone Scams: 5 Tips To Avoidlast_img read more

Lucky Nexus 6 Owners Will Reportedly Try Out Google’s Wireless Service First

first_imgRole of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#Google#mobile#Motorola#mvno#Nexus#Nexus 6#Sprint#T-Mobile#wireless Related Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Google’s upcoming wireless service—which will run on spectrum leased from the Sprint and T-Mobile networks—will be exclusive to Nexus 6 handset users to start, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday. It’s not entirely clear why that might be, although we’ve got a few ideas.Nexus 6’s Motorola PedigreeMotorola’s most recent smartphone offerings have been designed to work with Republic Wireless, a so-called mobile virtual network operator, or MVNO, that basically resells access to Sprint’s cellular network. Because Republic’s services rely on a mix of Wi-Fi-based calls and cellular, handsets like the Moto X, G, and E have software specifically built to handle such network switching. The Moto X is designed to jump on Wi-Fi and cellular networks with ease.Previous reports on Google’s wireless-service plans suggest it will also jump back and forth between Wi-Fi and cellular signals, just with T-Mobile’s networks added into the mix. As such, the Motorola-made Nexus 6 may be particularly well-suited to juggling multiple networks and Wi-Fi calling. See also: How I Got My Nexus 6But if the ability to easily switch networks is the barrier of entry for trying out Google’s forthcoming wireless service, why aren’t those other Moto handsets being included in the initial test? Google isn’t saying much on the subject (see update below), but that hasn’t stopped me from making some guesses.Staying Small, Even On Big Phones For answers, we might need to look at another potentially revolutionary Google initiative: Google Fiber. The high-speed, affordably priced Internet service dots areas around the country. If Google were to set its mind to rolling out Fiber in every metro in America, it would certainly disrupt the hold ISPs have over their consumers.See also: The Genius Of Google FiberBut by keeping Fiber small, Google provides a blueprint to Internet providers about how things could be. The idea, it seems, is to spur innovation.The same idea basically informs the Nexus device line itself. Despite partnering with popular OEMs like Samsung, LG, and most-recently Motorola, Nexus handsets can sometimes be tough to find. That’s been a particular problem with the Nexus 6, with the Google Play Store having only one of the four versions of the phone in stock.Motorola’s stock is better, but it still only offers three of the four versions. The Nexus 6 isn’t even available from Verizon at the moment. Needless to say, the ginormous Nexus 6 isn’t in a lot of pockets at the moment.The Nexus 6 is tough to find, no matter where you’re looking.Widespread adoption isn’t the point, however. Nexus phones run stock Android, with no frills or bloatware pre-installed. The devices show Google’s partners how Android smartphones ought to be.Google’s wireless service might be following the same playbook, with an extremely limited and slow rollout. (No one yet seems to have any idea where Google might actually offer the service.) It’s a way to show other carriers “how it’s done” and to spur them to innovate themselves. It might also inspire other smartphone makers to take a page from Motorola in terms of its network-switching software. Whatever the reason, Nexus 6 owners may have a shot at trying out the new service by the end of March. As for when or where—or even if—the service will be available to other users, we’ll just have to wait and see. Update, 6:50pm PT: A Google spokesperson responded to my inquiry, saying, “We’re not commenting on speculation here. All I can say is that per [Google senior vice president Sundar Pichai’s] comments this week at MWC, we’ll be announcing more details about the project in the coming months.“Nexus 6 and Moto X images courtesy of Motorola; Google Play Store image courtesy of Googlecenter_img What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … brian p rubin The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologylast_img read more
