Press Release Ready For Fall

Darren Kincaid - Friday, October 30, 2015

Newport News, Virginia: November is right around the corner and IVET Solutions is going full force to give back to the military community. IVET is continuously building a network of supporters from donors to organizations to build on the uSync™ platform by driving forces to reach the goal of uniting the 50 million people that care for and offer assistance to military members, Veterans, and their families. "There is never a dual moment here! The movement to unite providers, employers, and communities with military families is catching fire. We pride ourselves on innovation and coalition building. Our amazing software, powered by uSync, was launched at the US Army’s Annual AUSA convention. Our partners at the American Freedom Foundation, and live2sync made this possible. We are so thankful for our partnership with these two amazing groups that enabled the AUSA convention to bring thousands of amazing new members and partners to us. Folks want to be a part of this," said IVET Solutions CEO, Brigadier General (Ret) Jeffrey Horne.

This new approach unites people and companies that would never think of working together. It’s amazing. Bringing groups together with military members and spouses will empower people and corporate America. "We believe every military member and their family have their own personal brand, their own networking needs, and deserve to build their own relationships across many parts of their life. Research and our experience shows that people also crave the ability to share the story, create, network and enjoy their online life in a seamless way that is personal, secure, and meaningful. We are stepping into a whole new era of social community building," Horne said. "Together, we can accomplish more than any single offering. We also see that user reviews, and collective choices made simple, create greater impact than when facing personal growth alone," said Stephanie Lara, IVET’s production coordinator.
