Ritter Insurance Marketing Opens New Western Office in Arizona

Full-Service National Expansion Improves Reach and Accessibility for Agents Across All Time-Zones

HARRISBURG, PA and SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 07/21/14 -- Craig Ritter, President and Owner of Ritter Insurance Marketing today announced the grand opening of the company's newest satellite location in Scottsdale, Arizona. The new Western Office will enable Ritter to strengthen relationships with major health carriers across nine states and allow for improved client and agency relations.

"For many years, agents and brokers across the western region told us they couldn't reach a live person after 5 p.m. Eastern Time when our Harrisburg office closed each day," said Craig Ritter. "Now, with the creation of a full-service 'Mini-Ritter' out west, we'll be able to service calls and process applications until 8 p.m. Eastern Time every day. And even later during the busy Medicare Annual Enrollment Period (AEP)."

Ritter's strategic focus continues to be on the expanding Senior Health market. Since 2005, the organization has grown from 6 to more than 80 employees and has emerged as a national technology leader offering its nearly 20,000 agents and brokers free CRM and customized quoting tools that deliver sales results. The company also has a marketing and technology presence with associates located in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Omaha and Boise.

The new Western Office based in Scottsdale launches today and is led by Jason Meyers, a well-known marketing and public relations executive throughout the Phoenix area for more than 20 years. His local career includes broadcast and integrated marketing positions with Gannett, Heard Museum, Desert Schools Federal Credit Union, Mindspace Agency and OneGuard Home Warranties. Meyers has been a licensed Life & Health insurance professional since 1998 and recently earned sales and marketing recognition from two major insurance companies focused on the Senior Health Insurance Marketplace.

"After serving as a multimedia professional for many years and a top-producing insurance agent, joining Ritter has been the opportunity of a lifetime for me. Now I can truly combine the best of both professional worlds; marketing and insurance, to make a difference in the lives of our agents, carriers and beneficiaries across the Western Region. I'm honored to be a part of the extended Ritter family." Meyers said.

The company recently launched its new and improved website at ritterim.com and is planning to release additional tech innovations and upgrades for agents in the coming months. "We're taking unprecedented steps to strengthen the Ritter brand experience through the rest of the decade and beyond," said Craig Ritter.

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
