October 13, 2020 | software | No Comments

Selecting the right software is one of the most critical and daunting tasks businesses face. As the digital revolution unfolds, an increasing number of processes are digitized, consolidated and automated using software solutions. Today most industries have easily identifiable software frontrunners, yet the private wealth- and family office segment still suffers from fragmentation, a lack of clarity and transparency.

For many family offices, the process can be time and resource-intensive — with limitations discovered after purchase, having serious consequences for productivity and costs.

The Brockton Family and Community Center first opened in North Middle School in January to offer free, family friendly programming to members of the community.

BROCKTON — With the coronavirus pandemic forcing the Brockton Family and Community Center to close its physical doors to the public just a couple months after its opening, providers at the center have gone virtual to continue serving the community.

How do you rescue someone you love from the clutches of an internet conspiracy cult?

Do you maybe tell them that the operator of the “most prominent” website devoted to the unhinged, fact-free QAnon conspiracy theory was recently rumbled as a senior vice-president at Citibank?

It’s an unquestioning credulity that would have any marketer salivating.

The official Black Lives Matter website no longer includes language encouraging the “disruption” of the “Western-prescribed nuclear family structure.”

The language had been featured on the site’s “What We Believe” page, in which the group had laid out its support for various extreme policies and ideals that went beyond police reform and brutality.
