MADONA, Latvia, April 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quest Management Inc. (OTC-PINK:QSMG) has previously announced the signing of a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) between Quest Management’s President, Mr. Dmitrij Ozolins and TN3 LLC, a Wyoming limited liability company, whereby TN3 agreed to acquire 46,045,000 shares of common stock owned by Mr. Ozolins, which represents all of the shares owned by Mr. Ozolins. The parties expected the change of control to be on or about April 15, 2017. The parties expect the change of control to take effect May 15, 2017. At the time of closing, Mr. Dan Martin, the CEO and controlling shareholder of TN3, will be appointed as a member of the Board of Directors of Quest.  Mr. Martin, thereafter, intends to cause TN3 to vend into Quest, TN3’s assets, subsidiaries and divisions in equity swap transactions. Mr. Martin is an accomplished C-level executive with success driving results across a broad base of middle-market companies in direct sales, technology, distribution, product development, and others. He has been an entrepreneur, corporate officer, and consultant. Starting his career in the 1990s while obtaining a BSBA in Finance from John Carroll University, he was co-founder of an Internet company which over the next five years achieved a 4% national market share in its niche. Since then, he has been actively involved in mergers and acquisitions, and bringing new products and services to new markets globally. His primary expertise is understanding the needs of growing organizations, evaluating and defining the strategic objectives of a business, and communicating with stakeholders to successfully execute company objectives. TN3 has numerous diversified initiatives created specifically for development within an environment such as Quest. One initiative is in the Biotech sector, which includes Cancer treatment technology currently being commercialized in partnership with a top US hospital in the United States. The work includes patents achieved in the area of immunotherapy for brain tumor patients. This Biotech initiative also includes scientifically advanced anti-aging and other human focused technologies. These have significant market potential for sales and one patent filed, with multiple subsequent patents expected, and feature the participation of multiple, notable scientists. TN3 also has a rapidly expanding subsidiary that provides telemedicine (the ability of individuals to remotely access medical advice) to both English and Spanish speaking people living in the U.S. TN3 has other traditional business interests, including durable goods distribution, which will be discussed at a later time. Presently, agreements for the acquisition of these assets are being negotiated, and Quest will disclose them to the public in the near future, as the agreements are entered into. Quest and TN3 are confident that the change of control of Quest will lead to various acquisitions that will commence generating income within twelve (12) months and result in appreciable shareholder value. http://www.questmgmtinc.com Safe Harbor Statement: This news release contains "forward-looking statements", which are statements that are not purely historical and include any statements regarding beliefs, plans, expectations or intentions regarding the future.

SynGlyphX® the leading provider of interactive data visualization and discovery technology and John Carroll University's College of Arts and Sciences announced today that cancer researchers at the John Carroll University are using SynGlyphX® Software to visualize and analyze multiple cancer data sets simultaneously to accelerate the number of discoveries they find in their data. Elena Manilich, Ph.D., a data scientist and biomedical and health informatics researcher and professor in John Carroll University's Department of Computer Science, chose SynGlyphX® Software in order to explore multiple cancer datasets simultaneously. John Carroll has been using SynGlyphX software in its Computer Science program to explore and understand the benefits of data visualization as an aid to both the discovery of critical insights in data and in communicating findings to an audience.  Dr. Manilich saw the software in action with datasets unrelated to those she analyzes and wanted visualizations of her own cancer data. Manilich's research team will use SynGlyphX® visualizations to identify anomalies and find opportunities previously undiscovered in the data. "SynGlyphX® enables us to see our data more holistically," said Dr. Manilich. "We can look within the data to see associations and disassociations that we have never seen. It helps us to look at the data differently, ask additional and new questions, and quickly discover insights remarkably.” SynGlyphX® software is designed based on both the common understanding and scientific research that shows humans recognize cultural symbols of meaning (e.g., big is more, small is less, green is good, red is bad). SynGlyphX® uses these principles to visually represent data as glyphs: a collection of geometric objects that have data mapped to properties of color, shape, size, position to convey meaning to users. SynGlyphX® software transforms data into a visual, 3D, immersive and interactive environment that simplifies and expedites analysis of vast amounts of data, in context. It works on commercially available hardware used within the majority of corporate and academic organizations worldwide. In 2016, Kristine A. Schulz, DrPHa, of Duke University School of Medicine released a white paper that details how the team at Duke Medical Center re-analyzed traditionally run medical research using SynGlyphX software. The team discovered several valuable findings identified within the SynGlyphX® visualization that were not explored in the original statistical plan, including increased bleed rates in some patients. The white paper can be found here: Using data visualization software to get there quicker and without missing any landmarks -- a case study in healthcare research. "In our work with both John Carroll and Duke, we have been extremely excited to see the impact that SynGlyphX® data visualizations have on medical and academic research," said Mark Sloan, Co-founder and CEO of SynGlyphX. "We are always grateful for the opportunity to work with people like Dr. Manilich, whose research has far reaching impact on all of us." For more information on SynGlyphX®, visit www.SynGlyphX.com. SynGlyphX® is transforming the way the world interacts with data for discovery and insight. With superior technology, perceptual engineering and knowledgeable staff, SynGlyphX® offers its customers the ability to assimilate massive amounts of data in a single computer screen, allowing user to identify patterns, trends, and anomalies -- and ultimately "Transform Data to Knowledge. Faster." For more information about SynGlyphX, visit . John Carroll University, founded in 1886 as Saint Ignatius College, is located in University Heights, Ohio, in suburban Cleveland.

GlyphEd TM the leading provider of interactive data visualization and discovery technology for college and university Enrollment Management, and John Carroll University announced, today, that John Carroll University will join the GlyphEd™ Early Adopters Program. The company and university will work together to enhance GlyphEd’s existing software functionality with student success and retention capabilities. U.S. Department of Education awarded John Carroll University a “First in the World” (FITW) program grant, totaling nearly $1.3 million in September 2015. “First in the World” grants are made to fund initiatives that will improve academic outcomes and retention rates through innovative programs for students at colleges and universities. John Carroll is one of 17 recipients out of 300 applicants to receive the grant nationwide. The University devised its Blue/Gold program in October 2015. This John Carroll project organizes students into a program of block schedules and clustered courses, including some foundational core courses that enroll a common cohort of students into learning communities. The university considers GlyphEd TM a uniquely valuable tool in support of retention and success programs like Blue/Gold. GlyphEd TM will develop Student Success and Retention oriented visualizations in support of John Carroll University and its First in the World program. The visualizations will be designed to aid users in the discovery of key insights regarding drivers of: attrition and retention; incoming students needs; and outreach that may be needed across segments of the student body to drive student success and retention. "GlyphEd visualizations give us better insight into the overall well being of our student population as we work to help them persist and thrive," said Terry L. Mills, Ph.D., Assistant Provost for Student Success at John Carroll University. "We look forward to working with the GlyphEd team to design functionality that will give us indicators of when we can provide support to individual students to help them persist when struggling and help them work forward to success." "Working with John Carroll University on retention and student success is a true honor," said Mark Sloan, Founder and CEO of GlyphEd™. "Their commitment to student success comes through in all of their programs -- from the day that someone becomes a student through to career success. We are excited to support these efforts." GlyphEd™ integrates with existing CRM and Enrollment Management data systems to allow non-technical users to more easily make sense of the available data that Enrollment Management offices have in various systems and databases. About GlyphEd™ GlyphEd™ is transforming the way Enrollment Management Offices interact with data for discovery and insight. It offers a new way to interact with data, discover insights, and make informed decisions. Ultimately, the GlyphEd™Enrollment Management GlyphKIT™ allows colleges and universities to make faster, more informed decisions across Marketing / Recruiting, Admissions, Financial Aid, and Retention (coming soon). Additionally, GlyphEd™ sits on top of existing IT investments in CRM and other data – allowing colleges and universities to get a greater return on IT investments.

Alexandria, VA, June 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SynGlyphX® the leading provider of interactive data visualization and discovery technology and John Carroll University's College of Arts and Sciences announced, today, a joint research effort. The research will focus on the efficiencies and effectiveness of glyph based visual analysis of data for users. John Carroll University has been using SynGlyphX's software in its computer science program to explore and understand the benefits of data visualization as an aid to both the discovery of critical insights in data and in communicating findings to an audience. "We became familiar with SynGlyphX® software two years ago, through work we did with their software to visualize and better understanding Swarm Intelligence data," said Dr. Daniel W. Palmer, of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at John Carroll. "Through that experience, we began using SynGlyphX® software in our classroom to help our students learn principles of data analysis and data visualization. Our collaboration with SynGlyphX® has been valuable for both the school and our students." John Carroll students have created and used side-by-side comparisons of data within standard data analysis tools relative to SynGlyphX®'s visual analysis. "We saw that students found answers to questions using visual analysis in GlyphViewer™ faster than using spreadsheets," said Palmer. "In some cases, students could not find the correct answers in spreadsheets during the classroom exercise." These classroom experiences prompted Dr. Palmer and the SynGlyphX® team to create a formal study of glyphs and their potential as a method of analysis. Dr. Palmer and his team will work with SynGlyphX® to set up a series of experiments for a large number of subjects to quantify the effectiveness of three-dimensional, glyph-based data representations as compared to traditional spreadsheet and two dimensional, non-interactive representations. “Humans can absorb vast amounts of information in multiple ways,” said Palmer, “what we are interested in is how does that translate into increased comprehension of the data, and how much faster that comprehension can be achieved by presenting the data in different ways.” SynGlyphX® interactive data visualization and discovery technology helps users make sense of the volumes of data generated every day. The proliferation of data, enabled by new sensors, increased storage capacity, and other technological developments, is actually inhibiting our ability to make timely, informed decisions. SynGlyphX® interactive data visualization and discovery software addresses this challenge by making it easier to see patterns, trends, and anomalies in complex data. "SynGlyphX® is excited to collaborate with John Carroll University on this initiative," said Mark E. Sloan, CEO, SynGlyphX®. "Students, with a range of experiences with data analysis and data analysis tools, are helping us to see how visualizations expedite and improve our ability to benefit from our data. We're excited to continue working with JCU and other universities on this project and others like it." For more information on SynGlyphX®, visit www.SynGlyphX.com.
