The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2017-08-02T00:02:07Z Game changing new mobile app revolutionises how Aussies shop 2017-08-02T00:02:07Z game-changing-new-mobile-app-revolutionises-how-aussies-shop Melbourne, 2nd August 2017 – Authenticateit Pty Ltd – the Australian company leading the way in traceability, serialisation and product authentication, has today announced a revolutionary new mobile shopping app called Shping, which transforms ordinary product barcodes into meaningful, real-time rewards for consumers. Rewards, which can be accumulated in the form of ‘Shping points’, have real monetary value and can be redeemed for cash, gift cards, products and even used as charity donations. Using the app, consumers and rewards junkies can earn and amass Shping points by scanning the barcode of any product they wish to purchase – it’s really that simple! While the app also provides consumers with important information about thousands of products, including: where it comes from, what it’s made of, and whether the product has been recalled; in instances where a specific product has not yet been added to the Shping database, consumers can also earn points for uploading information about it. In addition, consumers can also amass points by uploading information about their own experiences of a given product, sharing lifehacks and product reviews – all on one central interface, while earning Shping rewards points as they go. The app essentially acts as an interactive platform for consumers to engage directly with brands, also offering seamless integration with their social media channels. “The Shping app has been designed as the ultimate shopping buddy. Considering 88 per cent[1] of Australians own at least one smartphone, we saw an enormous opportunity to introduce a next generation rewards program, which addresses some of the limitations associated with the traditional, physical reward cards, and offer consumers an even more convenient and seamless way to earn points using their mobile phones. Add to this the fact that more than a third of consumers (35 per cent) are likely to conduct research on a product in-store, Shping also represents a huge untapped opportunity for brands to engage more effectively with consumers,” said Gennady Volchek, CEO at Authenticateit, the company behind the Shping app. The overarching goal for Shping, especially as it gains popularity among consumers and attracts more brands onto the platform, will be to become the world’s largest product catalogue for consumers. Shping has been built as an intuitive two-way communication platform, not only featuring product information from brands themselves, but also allowing consumers to provide their own feedback, delivering true brand engagement.  Something for everyone! Given the amount of product information that will be placed right at the consumers’ fingertips using the Shping app, Australians and New Zealanders will be able to make even more informed purchasing decisions, irrespective of whether they are doing their weekly grocery shop, buying clothes or cosmetics. Essentially, information for any product category that features an industry standard barcode will be available via the Shping app.   While the app has enormous appeal for a range of different audiences including everyday shoppers and rewards junkies looking to earn fast rewards, as well as eco-warriors seeking reassurance that a product has been ethically sourced; it also poses obvious benefits for health enthusiasts. Shping offers users a highly customisable view of the nutritional breakdown of a given product, enabling consumers to calculate daily allowances for specific ingredients. Having also recently announced a strategic partnership with Australia’s largest organic certifying group, Australian Organic (ACO), as well as working closely with AssureQuality, the global experts in food safety & quality, the app makes it possible for consumers to instantly validate organic product certification and food safety.Not just another customer loyalty program ... “While we are extremely excited to announce availability of the Shping app in ANZ, it’s important for people to understand this isn’t simply just another customer loyalty program. The full breadth of the app’s features and functionality demonstrates this. We really wanted an app that challenges the status quo through marrying our background in product authentication and brand protection, with a truly optimised, information rich mobile experience for consumers. We want people to know that it pays to shop smarter!” said Volchek. With the cost of living steadily rising throughout Australia, Authenticateit wanted to design an app where consumers can build points and earn tangible rewards, which are easily redeemed across multiple brands.    “In an ever saturated retail market with an increased proliferation of online retailers and e-commerce sites, competition around pricing has never been more fierce, nor has the amount of choice available to consumers been greater. People are becoming much more savvy when it comes to what they buy, and where, so having the option to make purchases work harder for consumers through an interactive mobile rewards program, was a no-brainer for us,” Volchek explained.More:// In addition to earning rewards, the Shping app also offers additional services for selected products, including [but not limited to]: authenticity checks, product recall notifications, verification of product recall status, warranty activation, receipt storage, social media integration, as well as product rating and feedback.  Other ways in which the SHPING app differs from other customer loyalty programs on the market today includes:   Shping is completely agnostic, it does not have exclusive affiliations with any one brand or retailer, meaning rewards can be earned in any store and on any product unlike other programs, which are often linked to the specific stores or products. 
 Shping rewards points are not linked to above a certain price point. Consumers are also rewarded for staying safe by scanning products to validate their authenticity, explore their product recall status, and for seeking additional information about a given product. 
 Unlike some traditional reward programs, where points are only earned for watching third party adds etc.,  Shping only provides consumers with trusted data, tailored specifically to the products they are interested in. Shping is the ultimate barcode search engine that helps consumers get the information they want, while rewarding them at the same time. The SHPING consumer mobile app is available for download through the Apple App Store and Google Play , as well as all major App stores in China. -ENDS-About Authenticateit Authenticateit - currently trading as Shping - is the global expert in product track and trace and supply chain management.

Trimble Introduces the Next Generation of Grade Control for Excavators and Dozers 2017-03-03T01:23:14Z trimble-introduces-the-next-generation-of-grade-control-for-excavators-and-dozers Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) announced today Trimble® Earthworks for Excavators and Trimble Earthworks for Dozers. Trimble Earthworks is transforming machine control with the industry’s first integrated 3D aftermarket excavator automatics capability. In addition, a new dozer configuration moves the receivers from the blade to the roof of the cab. Reengineered from the ground up, Trimble’s innovative, next generation grade control platform features intuitive, easy-to-learn software that runs on an Android operating system. State-of-the-art software and hardware gives operators of all skill levels the ability to work faster and more productively than ever before. “Trimble pioneered machine control,” said Scott Crozier, director of marketing for Trimble Civil Engineering and Construction. “Now, Trimble Earthworks takes machine control to the next level, with a platform that reinvents machine control technology, making it easy to use and learn, and more accessible for many different types of contractors.” Live demonstrations of Trimble Earthworks for Excavators and Trimble Earthworks for Dozers will be showcased at ConExpo 2017, one of the world’s largest international exhibitions for the construction industry. Trimble will be located in the Las Vegas Convention Center North Hall #N-12067. Intuitive Software The Trimble Earthworks grade control application is built on the Android operating system, and runs on the new 10-inch (25.7 centimeter) Trimble TD520 touch-screen display. The Earthworks application was developed based on feedback from construction equipment operators around the world, resulting in an interface optimized for productivity. Colorful graphics, natural interactions and gestures, and self-discovery features make the software intuitive and easy to learn. Each operator can personalize the interface to match their workflow and a variety of configurable views make it easier to see the right perspective for maximum productivity. In addition, Earthworks allows data files to be transferred to or from the office wirelessly and automatically so that the operator is always using the latest design. Using the Android operating system, users can download other applications that provide the operator with additional useful tools inside the cab. To make the system even more flexible, contractors can use the Trimble TD520 display or a third-party Android device. Excavator Automatics With Trimble Earthworks, contractors can now take advantage of the first integrated 3D aftermarket grade control automatics for excavators, allowing operators to create smooth, flat or sloped surfaces more easily. When the excavator is placed in Autos mode, the operator controls the stick, and Trimble Earthworks controls the boom and bucket to stay on grade, reduce overcut and increase production. By automating excavator operation, Trimble Earthworks allows operators to achieve grade consistently, with high accuracy and in less time. Mastless Dozer Configuration Trimble Earthworks for Dozers mounts dual GNSS receivers on top of the cab to eliminate masts and cables traditionally located on the blade. The dual GNSS receivers are ideal for steep slope work and complex designs with tight tolerances. The new configuration keeps valuable receivers safer and can also save contractors time by reducing the time needed to remove and reinstall them each day. Availability Trimble Earthworks for Excavators is expected to be available globally in the second quarter of 2017 from the SITECH® dealer channel. Trimble Earthworks for Dozers is expected to be available in the second half of 2017 from the SITECH dealer channel. For more information, visit: http://construction.trimble.com/earthworks.

Based on data from almost 200 attendees between 27 and 28 October 2015, the survey sought to assess the sustainability of current storage environments, key drivers for deploying flash storage and factors driving the demand for additional storage.   Violin Memory polled senior IT executives and CIOs with an average of more than 11 years of experience across government, financial services, IT, healthcare, and telecommunications sectors amongst others.  Key findings include: Majority (70 percent) of respondents surveyed believe flash storage plays a critical role in delivering IT services, yet only 28 percent have a strategy in place. Almost half or 49 percent believe that their current storage environment cannot sustain business needs over the next 10 years, while 27 percent remain uncertain. At least 28 pe cent of respondents currently have a flash storage strategy in place, while 6 percent plan to deploy the technology within the next 12 months. Key reasons that would influence the decision to move to flash storage are capability and execution of the product (29 percent), performance (27 percent), followed closely by price (26 percent). Interestingly, 53 percent of respondents believe complex business analytics are driving the demand for additional storage, followed by new applications (34 percent). A majority of respondents were from the government (30 percent) and financial services (15 percent) sectors; followed by healthcare and telecommunications at 6 percent each.  “At a time where the digital age is gaining momentum, information is an organisation’s greatest asset. The pressure for organisations in Australia to quickly store, secure, access and analyse data can mean the difference between business success and failure,” said Ross Lynch, Director for ANZ at Violin Memory. “Unfortunately legacy storage systems such as spinning disks are unable to sustain today’s storage environment needs, which are primarily driven by trends such as mobility, big data and analytics, as the survey shows.   “As businesses continue to evolve, organisations need to consider new approaches to data storage. Importantly, business leaders need to realise that the days of the spinning disks as the primary IT data storage medium are done. We’re now seeing a fast shift to flash storage as the concept of the all-flash data centre becomes a reality for businesses in competitive markets,” expressed Lynch.  Note to editors: The survey was conducted at Gartner Symposium ITxpo 2015 in the Gold Coast, Australia from 27-28 October, and involved a total of 196 respondents.  About Violin Memory Business in a Flash.

OpenText and DocuSign Transform Electronic Signature Process for Enterprise Content 2015-11-16T16:00:00Z opentext-and-docusign-transform-electronic-signature-process-for-enterprise-content Sydney, Australia — 16 November 2015 — OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), and DocuSign, Inc. (DocuSign®), The Global Standard for Digital Transaction Management® (DTM), today announced new integrations to help OpenText enterprise customers securely create and route documents for electronic signature. With the DocuSign integration, OpenText users will have a court-admissible audit trail to help comply with information governance needs.   In the digital world, organisations still face considerable challenges manually obtaining signatures to validate documents. By breaking the digital workflow, organisations risk losing visibility into the status of the document throughout the process and correctly determining where to store or archive the document.  As part of The DocuSign Global Trust Network, OpenText will provide customers access to Digital Transaction Management (DTM) solutions that enable organisations to quickly get up and running with secure, managed and legally compliant electronic signatures, eliminating the need to print, fax, scan and overnight documents. In addition, customers benefit from pre-configured document templates which can be easily added to existing workflows and adapted for specific requirements. “By integrating DocuSign into our content and process management solutions, enterprise customers can send, sign and manage documents anytime, anywhere, and from any device,” said Adam Howatson, chief marketing officer for OpenText. "This is another great example of how OpenText and its partners support organisations’ digital transformations."   Using the OpenText Content Suite Platform with DocuSign, users can quickly and securely route communications through to signature and easily store the signed document back into the repository. DocuSign reduces the time and burden that employees associate with paper signature processes while helping to ensure enterprises meet compliance and information governance standards through its complete, easy-to-monitor audit trail, capturing all activities associated with the document, time stamps and the location of where the document was signed. DocuSign will also be available as part of OpenText Customer Communications Management to create documents requiring signatures, and can add electronic signatures capabilities to OpenText Contract Centre for automated contract processing.   “DocuSign helps organisations of every size, industry, and geography eliminate the hassles, costs, and lack of security inherent in paper-based processes to transact business 100% digitally,” said Brad Brooks, the chief marketing officer at DocuSign. “Our partnership with OpenText brings together their information management leadership with the power of DocuSign’s Digital Transaction Management platform. Together, this will help our joint customers achieve dramatic ROI, increased security and compliance, and better transaction experiences.”   The new signing capability is an enhancement to the OpenText Content Suite, OpenText Extended ECM for SAP Solutions, comprehensive Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems designed to manage the flow of information from capture through to archiving and disposition, and now including the signature process. The electronic signing is also enhancing OpenText Process Suite by integrating with OpenText Contract Centre, as well as with OpenText PowerDocs, which is part of OpenText Customer Experience Management strategy.   OpenText Enterprise Content Management, Business Process Management, and Customer Experience management are among the key components of the OpenText Enterprise Information Management (EIM) strategy, enabling organisations to discover and manage information to spur growth and innovation and decrease time to competitive advantage. The platform consists of comprehensive and integrated product suites including Content Suite, Process Suite, Experience Suite, Discovery Suite, Information Exchange, and Analytics.  About OpenText OpenText enables the digital world, creating a better way for organisations to work with information, on premises or in the cloud.
