Louis R. Chênevert and the United Technologies Corporation

Former United Technologies Corporation CEO, Louis Chênevert, has seen tremendous success in his years as a leading businessman. With the words “tremendous success” perhaps being an understatement, it is no surprise his expertise has earned him nearly 200 million dollars of wealth. What he has accomplished throughout his career, specifically at his time as CEO of United Technologies Corporation, has left the rest of the world wondering how we can make the world a better place, just like he helped in doing.

Wondering why investing in the future has not begun yet, also, figuring out how to invest in the future now, is the task that Louis Chênevert has left the rest of us to try to accomplish. To expand more on how that goal can be accomplished, we will take a closer look at the work and life of Louis Chênevert, as well as the company United Technologies Corporation, whose goal is to achieve a better future.

The Early Life & Career of Louis R. Chênevert
Growing up in Quebec, it was clear that Louis had a passion for business. Without spending too much time on his academic career, knowing that it prepared him well for his professional career, he would go on to earn a bachelor of commerce degree in production management from HEC Montréal. With this academic knowledge, Louis later earned numerous awards professionally including 2060 FDNY Fire Commissioner’s Humanitarian Award, the 2010 Pace Award for Leadership in Business Ethics, and an Honor Award in 2009.

Other achievements include being elected president of Pratt & Whitney in 1999, becoming United Technologies Corporation’s President and Chief Operating Officer in March of 2006, and of course, his time dedicated to UTC, where he would have his most profound success.

Why Investing in the Future Should Begins Now 
We can go on for a long time discussing what great things Louis has done at UTC, but instead, let’s go over what he meant for UTC with the legacy he left there. In the article on UTC, current UTC CEO Gregory Hayes states that as a CEO, the goal is to invest and innovate in the people of the company and those working along side it. In addition to that, as the leader of a company as great as UTC, another is to ignore keeping an eye on short term success but instead, always do so with an eye toward the long term success. Simply put, invest in the future now to be rewarded later, and that has always been the goal at UTC.

This is what Louis established while he was CEO. Louis established a mindset of helping the future leaders that will eventually lead the United States. As CEO, Louis’s job was to leave the company better than they found it. What better way to do that than to help those now, that will help you later. If numbers are needed to prove a point that future investment is the goal over at UTC, how about the fact that they have invested in over $1 billion dollars into employees that have earned over 39,000 degrees since 1996. With success like this, there is no telling how far UTC can go, thanks to the help of business genuis Louis R. Chênevert.

Visual AI Technology Aims To Make Finding What You Need A Snap

In the recent years we have seen many advances in our tech. Since the invention of internet searches on slyce.it however, not much has changed. You type in your search word and start looking. Companies like Pinterest and Shoes.com are looking to buck that trend in favor of Visual Search Technology. This deep learning engine allows you to take a picture of an image and it will find the exact one for you and many like it. It will also direct you to the nearest place to get it. Like that pair of shoes you saw on the way to work? Snap a picture and pick them up on the way home.

In the case of Pinterest, their search engine will find your item from a catalog of literally billions of choices. Remember the Amazon Fire Smartphone? Neither does anybody else. They attempted to launch the mobile with this new tech included, but it failed miserably. Kevin Jing, the head of visual search at Pinterest, claims that the technology is much, much better now. They admit that it’s not perfect yet, but given time it will be the go-to when it comes to searching for what customers need. It’s just now finding it’s footing.

This is where a company by the name of Slyce is hoping to pick up the slack. Their aim is to use their proprietary technology, coupled with the best of the competition’s to make it the smoothest experience yet. The Universal Scanner is their ‘straight- forward’ solution for the issues of other apps. What they want is to make it so that you can scan any real world image and get that exact one and many more like it if you wish.

This is applicable to QR codes, bar codes, coupons and so forth. Whether it’s 1D, 2D or 3D images, it can accurately depict them all. It’s a great way to find products that compliment others or making a wish list catalog as well. Slyce wants to be the premiere way that people search for that thing they desire. If they keep their momentum going, this may well be the result.

An Innovative And Affordable Mobile Wireless Service Keeps You Connected

In the days of ever expanding technology it is easier than ever to feel connected. But because technology is so accessible, people expect that you have reliable service. It is hard for people to fathom that you are not receiving text messages or that you have lost wireless service. Your friends, family and professional contacts all expect that you have conducted enough research to have a dependable wireless service and that you have purchased a data plan that is appropriate for your needs. It is hard to explain to your friends, family or significant other that you have ran out of minutes, texts or data usage for the month. It is important to evaluate your mobile wireless usage to decide what kind of data plan you require.

Even though technology has increased at a staggering rate since the advent of the smartphone, it can still be a challenge to find an affordable service with the right data plan. There are plenty of companies that are still looking to gouge consumers. In an age where technology is so abundant and evolving it seems unfair for any one to be left out because an affordable data plan is not within their reach.

Freedom Pop is an alternative to your traditional mobile wireless service. This growing service that is endorsed by Niklas Zennstom, the founder of Skype. After having a following in the US, FreedomPop expanded it’s service to the UK on July 1st. The basic plan includes 200 minutes, 200 texts, and 200MB of free data. The bulk of FreedomPop’s service is free, with additional add ons such as letting unused data rollover and adding a line. The carrier of FreedomPop is also launching JetSetter which is ideal for travelers in the UK, Spain and France.

Additionally, TechCrunch reports that FreedomPop is offering a new low cost WiFi service. This service allows you to use over 10 million hotspots. These hotspots are located in urban centers across the US. Approximately 120 million people will have access to the hotspots with coast to coast coverage focused in metro centers. This service will be available through both Android and iPhone apps. Large retailers including Starbucks, McDonalds, Best Buy and Burger King will be a part of the comprehensive coverage that will include an auto connect feature. The use of these WiFi hotspots should be a seamless and user friendly experience.

At the world’s current pace, you cannot afford to miss out on expansive WiFi coverage and an affordable data plan that caters to your daily needs. When you are not connected, you could be missing out on sharing the experience of celebrating milestones with your friends and family. If you are not using technology that delivers your messages at the speed of life, you could feel less connected to those that you love. Technology should bring us closer across all the miles, not tear us further away. FreedomPop’s innovative and affordable plan ensures that you can stay connected at the pace that life unfurls.
