Enterox[edit]

Information icon Dear GermanJoe; I'm Arunav.Net. I really appreciate your effort in correcting the section of articles which you find promotional, however I still feel there is a bias towards certain companies that still has direct or indirect promotional contents, further I find it hard to agree with the "non-notable" point about Enterox as the company has been a part of more than a dozen technology research articles by many reputed research firms and although such articles have been re-published by media agencies including Business Wire[1]; Enterox has never made any form of payments to the research firms or the media agencies as of 15th June 2017. The mention in these articles and news are purely based on the merit of the technology introduced by the company that is enabling "Enterprise Systems with Internet of Things" and "Artificial Intelligence for Customer Relationship Management". Disclaimer: although I would qualify as a "Subject Matter Expert" :) with more that a decade of experience in Enterprise Software and patent in Internet of Things I do agree there is a possibility of conflict of interest as I am a director at Enterox and hence I would refrain from updating wiki articles as it will be hard for me to keep a neutral view-point particular when there are promotional contents from other companies that continue to find place in wiki articles.

Hello @Arunav.Net:, you're welcome. Editors with a possible conflict of interest can still contribute to all unrelated articles of course, and expert input is always welcome. You can also suggest edits regarding Enterox on article talkpages (Template:edit request is useful for these cases), as long as you clearly mention your connection to the topic in such cases. On a sidenote, I agree with your comment about "other companies". Wikipedia is a volunteer project with limited editor ressources - unfortunately some of this problematic content stays unnoticed for years. Thank you for your consideration about Wikipedia's WP:COI guideline. Best regards. GermanJoe (talk) 19:09, 14 June 2017 (UTC)
@Arunav.net: - mistyped the first one. GermanJoe (talk) 19:11, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

McKinsey & Company[edit]

Hi GermanJoe. I am affiliated with McKinsey & Company. Regarding your edit here, can I suggest you also trim the sentence "its clientele includes 80% of the world's largest corporations.[citation needed]." I do not see this content cited anywhere in the body of the article and in any case the prior sentence seems adequate for the lead. There is no need for us to belabor the point of how prestigious they are in the lead. I also did a quick Google search and did not find any sources for this. CorporateM (Talk) 12:58, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

Hello @CorporateM:, I agree and done. Unfortunately a lot of consultancy-related articles talk a lot about prestige, success and accomplishments from the company's PoV - we should try our best to focus more on an uninvolved encyclopedic overview in this area. Thank you for being so transparent about your COI, it really helps to improve such articles in a cooperative manner. GermanJoe (talk) 13:11, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

Hello, please use English for messages on English Wikipedia. I have no idea what you just wrote (and Google Translate is a total failure in such cases). Thank you for your understanding. GermanJoe (talk) 13:13, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
