Informing decisions with critical data

An equipment finance company is facing a major lease proposal. With a loan value of over $3 million, it’s critical they have an accurate estimate of the portfolio’s value at the end of its lease. Using EquipmentWatch’s valuation product, they build a residual value analysis and determine that the portfolio will retain 35% of its initial value. Additionally, they subscribe to EquipmentWatch’s new API feed, which enables batch processing and appends in real-time all 12,490 of their assets under lease with expected residual values, thereby allowing for constant risk analysis and correction with no head count investment of their own.

Engaging vital business connections

A facility manager from a nonprofit hospital with over 1,500 beds leverages Penton’s reach into the $85 billion waste/sustainability marketplace, attends WasteExpo. She learns about opportunities to reduce her facility’s energy consumption, networks with professionals and identifies a process for the collection and transfer of medical waste to deliver a 10% savings in waste management costs.

Advancing the way business gets done

A Fortune 50 tech giant taps into Penton’s extensive reach across vertical markets to conduct a one-stop research and marketing campaign pilot to drive the adoption of tablet and smartphone devices among business owners. Campaign results uncovered several high potential segments specifically in government, education, and restaurants. Penton built integrated awareness and educational programs that appealed to each market, including dedicated knowledge centers with virtual learning modules, information resources, business tools, community networking, and social media marketing to drive traffic and engagement.
