At least five militants, including two of the Jaish-e-Mohammed group, have been killed in the last 24 hours by security forces in three districts of the Kashmir valley, Indian Army and police officials said on Friday.

Two of the militants were killed in Baramulla’s Kalantara Payeen in north Kashmir, another two in Hajin in north Bandipora and one in Shopian in south Kashmir, they said.

The encounter between security forces and militants in Mir Mohalla area of Hajjin started around 10am on Thursday. Security forces comprising of units of the army’s 13 Rashtriya Rifles, Central Reserve Police Force’s (CRPF’s) 45 Battalion and Jammu and Kashmir police’s special operations group took part in the operation.

A gun battle also took place in Shopian’s Imam Sahib after security forces cordoned off the area following the information about the presence of militants. One of them was killed in the encounter.

A police spokesperson said on Friday one of the two militants killed in Kalantara Payeen in Baramulla has been identified as Aamir Rasool of Sopore and that the other was a Pakistani national. Both the bodies have been recovered and a search operation is in progress after the encounter started on Thursday, the spokesperson said.


“According to the police records, both the killed terrorists were affiliated with proscribed terror outfit JeM and were wanted by law for their complicity in a series of terror crimes including an attack on security establishments and civilian atrocities. They were involved in conspiring and executing many terror attacks in the area. Several terror crime cases were registered against both the terrorists,” the spokesperson said.

The spokesperson said arms and ammunition, including AK 47 assault rifles, were recovered from the site of encounter. “All these materials have been taken in the case records for further investigation and to probe their complicity in other terror cases,” the officer said.

“Citizens are once again requested not to venture inside the encounter zone since such an area can prove dangerous due to stray explosive materials. People are requested to cooperate with police till the area is completely sanitized and cleared of all the explosives materials if any,” he said.

VistaQuote incorporates RFQ routing by teams
3/23/2019 4:26:42 PM

VistaQuote has added a new feature to its broad offering. Now, RFQs can be routed to sales teams instead of just a single person. "This was a result of a request from a customer looking to deploy VistaQuote in their organization. This is an example of Ambry Hill's commitment to developing solutions that solve problems. We listen and will build in features that make sense." said Paul Stewart, President of Ambry Hill Technologies, the makers of VistaQuote.

The VistaQuote Software as a Service (SaaS) solution captures inbound RFQs and allows you to route them to sales staff. Routing is different than traditional email forwarding rules you might find in Outlook for example. With VistaQuote, RFQs are not duplicated which means when one person quotes the RFQ, it disappears from the work screens that other's see as well. It also means no more shared inboxes. Managers can separate and assign RFQ workloads to the appropriate staff so they can focus on the specific RFQs that matter to them. And, Managers can monitor the staff's activity and assist where needed.

VistaQuote's design is a very deliberate and thoughtful approach to the way Aviation Sales Professionals utilize their systems and manage RFQ email traffic. Every feature has a purpose and is meant to solve a specific problem that is present in the traditional methods used to manage large volumes of RFQ email traffic.

Team routing will now expand that ability of Aviation Parts Trading companies to respond to their customer needs even faster.

Automated restricted party screening is now available in VistaQuote! Ambry Hill teams up with the industry leader, MSR eCustoms to offer the available industry the first ever pro-active export compliance screening system. 

"We are very excited about this partnership with Visual Compliance," said Paul Stewart, President of Ambry Hill Technologies, "and this service will help aviation companies perform due diligence on companies faster, in real time and before the company is even entered into the ERP system." This "best practice" approach is the first automated screening solution ever to screen companies right as the RFQ comes in. 

In addition to the automated screening, companies can be placed on a compliance hold or restricted. The screening results show both company name hits as well as export restrictions for countries. The compliance management features also include an audit trail notes system so you can record explanations support the screening results which show date, time and status of the compliance hold. 

"This is by far the best example of what we consider best practice for a pro-active due diligence research in an export compliance program," said Eleni Thalassinos, Manager of Compliance at Visual Compliance.

Ambry Hill Technologies Announces Launch Of VistaQuote
3/23/2019 4:26:42 PM

The much-anticipated launch of the groundbreaking RFQ management service called VistaQuote has been launched. The announcement came early Wednesday morning as the Aviation Industry began to hum with excitement. 

"We are very proud to offer this cutting-edge service to the industry,"  said Paul Stewart, President of Ambry Hill. "Our RFQ management system is like nothing the industry has ever seen before. This robust solution allows people to quote an RFQ received in their email and have it directly inserted into their ERP system." 

VistaQuote is a comprehensive RFQ management tool that captures inbound RFQs generated from any of the industry listing services. "VistaQuote does not force you to quote through their systems. In fact, you can generate a quote four different ways!" , said Krista Wildermuth, Director of Operations at Aircraft Hardware West.  

The automated routing to users, alert system and the ability to combine multiple RFQs from different listing services allow companies to reduce their RFQ processing time down to seconds versus the old-fashioned swivel chair approach. "I can see my part history and stock online just by clicking the part number. Or, I can see company history and the Rolodex by clicking on the company name. The ability to pull in this history in front of users is huge!" says Krista. 

Ambry Hill Technologies is a wholly owned subsidiary of AIrT, Inc. and is based in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. "Ambry Hill was founded for the purpose of bringing smart solutions to the aviation industry that actually make sense and make people's jobs easier. We want to build technology to solve the problems that other software companies have simply ignored," said Paul Stewart.
