Thank you to EMTHREESTUDIOS for their design work on @altimetergroup’s #digitaltransformation report

You ever have such a great experience working with someone that you feel the need to tell everyone? Me too. In fact, that’s what I’m doing right now. I recently released a research report on Digital Transformation, which studied how and why companies are investing in new business models to lead digital customer experiences.

The research represented a new direction for Altimeter Group. To celebrate the occasion, we also experimented with a new report design. We tweeted a call for designers during production and Keone Chong, co-founder of EMTHREESTUDIOS won our attention.

His team is pretty incredible…pushing forward at every step. So to the team at EMTHREE, thank you.  Thank you to each and every one of you. I think you have an award-winner here! ;)

Interesting: Massachusetts Warns Consumers on ‘Ridesharing’

“All Insurers…Will Deny Coverage” in ‘Ridesharing’ Accidents State Says

The Massachusetts Division of Insurance has issued a consumer alert regarding so-called ‘ridesharing’ companies. With this warning, fully one third of all American states are warning their consumers that the insurance involved with ‘ridesharing’ companies Uber and Lyft is unsafe and unacceptable. In the states where Uber and Lyft are operating, 45% have issued insurance warnings to their consumers.

“Using your own vehicle to transport another rider for an agreed-upon price—what could go wrong? Actually, a lot!” begins the Massachusetts consumer warning. “All insurers in Massachusetts will deny coverage should an incident occur if you use your vehicle to provide rides to strangers for a fee or other economic inducement.”

So-called ‘ridesharing’ companies Uber and Lyft attempt to portray their insurance coverage as safe and adequate. However, with the addition of Massachusetts’ consumer alert, insurance experts in 17 states plus the District of Columbia are directly refuting these false claims.

“Nearly half of all states where Uber and Lyft are operating have warned their citizens that so-called ‘ridesharing’ insurance is unsafe,” said Dave Sutton, spokesperson for ‘Who’s Driving You?’ “These insurance warnings have been investigated and disseminated by impartial experts—state employees—who have no vested interest other than public safety. Contrast these warnings with Uber’s and Lyft’s misleading claims about their insurance and, really, who are you going to believe?”
