    PHILADELPHIA, PA, July 25, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Entrepreneur David deForest Keys is an avid supporter of educational technology. With the increasing digitization of everything from entertainment to health care to education, educational technology is seeing increasing adaptation throughout America's school systems. From the computers in the classrooms to the mobile devices in students' pockets, technology is steadily encroaching into the school lives of students across the country. While many people are worried about protecting traditional education methods, a recent news story from the Economist explains why plugging in is actually proving beneficial to both students and teachers.

    This trend in education to adopt the latest technological innovations - and the mixed reactions to said trend - is not new at all. According to the article, nearly every innovation in the 20th century carried with it a promise to revolutionize the way that schoolchildren learned. Computers and CD-ROMS were touted as the next big thing during the 1990s. Before that, it was educational TV programs and film projectors. Before those, moving pictures and typewriters promised to change the face of education forever.

    To differing degrees, all of these innovations have been adapted successfully into the educational system. None, perhaps, brought quite the complete revolution that their most ardent backers promised, but all of them contributed in some way to the changing nature of public and private education.

    This lack of a complete overhaul of education by technology thus far has many people skeptical of the value of the latest technological innovations making their way into classrooms. However, according to David deForest Keys, any adaptation is a benefit, no matter how consequential it may or may not turn out to be. "One of, if not the, biggest purpose of education is to prepare children to better interact with the world around them. If the world around them is changing technologically, then schools need to do so as well. Even if a new gadget doesn't supercharge education, familiarity with it can only be a positive once kids get out into the world and are around it all of the time."

    According to the article, however, this latest wave of technological innovation may actually be bringing about the profound shift that its most passionate supporters have promised. Throughout the last century, says the article, mass education has improved, leading to a more productive, literate, and overall educated populace. However, this was done mainly through impersonal, mass production-like means such as requiring students to rote memorize and recite the same facts in the same ways as all of their peers.

    The most recent technological innovations can change that, though, further personalizing the educational experience to individual students and their needs. Educational programs can keep track of individual progress and measure the strengths and skills of each unique student. Before, such a scale of personalization required a great many teachers with very small classroom sizes. Now, however, a single teacher with good technology can better manage large classes of children as individuals.

    This has supporters of both educational technology and educational reform hopeful for the future. "At the worst, the latest technology will prove one more asset in an education system that remains unchanged," says David deForest Keys, "while at best it will finally bring about the huge boost to schools that many people have been waiting for."

    Chicago, IL, July 26, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Businesses have the option to increase revenue through proper web presence management. They can drive customers through customized wed and social media management.

    Marketing Meteor, an online marketing firm, is pleased to announce its new online marketing management service. Businesses can choose an assisted DIY turn-key 4-Step online marketing solution or opt for a professionally facilitated online marketing and brand management service provided by Marking Meteor and customized to their specific needs.

    “Many business owners are overwhelmed with social media and online marketing. They often don’t have the time to learn the technologies and strategies involved or the time needed to facilitate such. Now these businesses have another option,” said Charles Berry, founder of Marketing Meteor. “We do it for them.”

    In the past businesses were expected to have a brick and mortar location to be a “legitimate” business. Next they had to have a website and now they are figuring how to manage social media. This feat can be a challenging and time-consuming venture. However, an active web presence can produce huge rewards without spending a fortune. It is well worth the effort.

    The problem is a typical small to mid-sized business cannot afford to hire a designated person to handle their virtual brand. Instead, someone, usually the owner, tries to figure out how to set up email campaigns, signs up for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc., and thinks that’s enough. It’s not. A business’ web image is only as good as the content it provides and it cannot all be sales related. It doesn’t take long before whoever is managing these accounts stops adding content and they sit there dormant, doing nothing to drive business home. It truly is a challenge.

    Again, Marketing Meteor is proud to announce its new Web Marketing support service. They are a Chicagoland based firm and serve clients anywhere. http://www.marketingmeteor.com, 800-260-5051. sales@marketingmeteor.com

    San Francisco, CA, July 26, 2013 --(PR.com)-- RecMan Inc. today announced the availability of FileMan for Google Drive™, the world’s first web-based central file control and group permissions app for Google Drive users.

    More than 50 million users within businesses, government agencies, schools and other organizations world-wide have switched to Google Apps. Unfortunately, Google Drive does not have any built-in central access controls to meet organizational standards and legal regulations.

    “By adding central file control and group management features to Google Drive, corporations, government and organizations of any size now have the ability to centrally apply document access control, group policies and role based permissions. This enables IT administrators to set up Google Drive the same as they would set up a network file share,” says Richard Roberts, Chairman and CTO of RecMan Inc. “Central access controls are usually built into the operating systems of traditional file systems such as Windows, Mac OS and Linux, but now those same capabilities are available in the cloud with FileMan for Google Drive.”

    FileMan for Google Drive enables IT Administrators to easily and quickly set up a shared folder structure, assign permissions to users, and create groups of users for role based permissions. Users and groups can be designated to have read only or edit permissions, all of it centrally controlled by a network administrator. The end user does not even need to know FileMan exists, when filing records in the shared folders the policies set up by the administrator are automatically applied.

    FileMan for Google Drive is available in the Google Apps Marketplace for $9 per user annually. It will also be available from a growing number of system integrators and resellers. For more information about FileMan for Google Drive, you can visit http://fileman.co.

    About RecMan Inc.

    RecMan Inc. is a venture funded start-up providing world-class compliance and records management software. FileMan was developed by Richard Roberts, the same designer who engineered the world’s first web-based compliance and records management software used by thousands of users world-wide. RecMan is also the producer of RecMan for Google Apps, the world's first and only application delivering enterprise-grade records management and compliance for Google Apps. RecMan has offices in San Francisco, CA and Yokohama, Japan.

    Duluth, GA, July 26, 2013 --(PR.com)-- New Mexico Governor, Susana Martinez, found help facing MVD customer service issues and revolutionizing its field offices statewide by implementing a new Qmatic customer experience solution.

    The deal, which overhauls all 33 field offices and 38 municipal offices over two phases, highlights the Governor’s goal to implement a highly versatile system integrating technological advances and innovations to improve and streamline customer service.

    One-of-a-kind customer feedback units provide real-time customer satisfaction data that allows management to immediately address issues directly with the customer. These Qmatic customer feedback units provide an outlet for customers to rank the quality of service they just received by selecting one of five buttons listing various levels of satisfaction. This feedback is instantly emailed and texted to management allowing them to address unsatisfactory scores before the customer leaves the premises.

    “I am thrilled that this cutting-edge system has been implemented as a model of customer service across all industries,” said Governor Martinez. “This will provide immediate feedback from customers, good or bad, and will serve as an important management tool to improve overall customer service and operational efficiencies.”

    By analyzing this and additional statistical data tracked by the Qmatic system – such as real and estimated wait times, transaction times and workstation performance – the MVD can now base operational improvements on tangible information. They not only know where improvement is needed but also why.

    St. Louis, MO, July 26, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Award winning, St. Louis based Internet strategy, design and development firm, SteadyRain announces its partnership with Waterways Journal, a St. Louis based national towing and barge industry news journal, for website development and installation of a content management system.

    Waterways Journal sought a website featuring enhanced design and intuitive navigation. The news journal also requested a simple content management system for its staff so that online content could be easily updated, allowing for increased audience and visitor engagement. SteadyRain began work on website development on the DontNetNuke (DNN) platform in early June.

    “While working with Waterways Journal, it was important to review the existing website challenges and then formulate a solution that would provide a clean, intuitive and easy to navigate website,” commented Joe Marcallini, SteadyRain Vice President of Internet Strategy. “Our goal was to de-clutter the home page, allow for ample details about the organization, and install a professional content management system that the staff could easily use to keep the content on the site fresh.”

    Other strategic updates to expand on its visitor base include population of current content, additional page creation, DNN module development and Google Analytics support.

    “We are very excited to present a more user friendly site to our readers,” said Heather Ervin, communications manager at The Waterways Journal. “We feel DNN was the perfect solution to our online needs as far as presenting a site that we are proud of to our customers, and one that will better serve our needs from a business perspective.”

    SteadyRain and Waterways Journal expect a successful website launch by the end of the summer and anticipate increased traffic and audience engagement following the changes in design and staff management capabilities.

    Port Washington, NY, July 26, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Channel conflict remains a persistent challenge between IT vendors and their reseller partners, but the 2nd Annual Channel Conflict Report (http://the2112group.com/2013-2nd-annual-channel-conflict-report/) by The 2112 Group finds there are signs that tensions between direct and indirect sales teams are moderating, leading to greater levels of collaboration and revenue productivity.

    The 2112 Channel Conflict study finds little change in the level of conflict between IT vendor direct sales and partner indirect sales. However, there is a sharp increase in the level of co-selling between vendors and resellers, as well as vendors turning over direct sales to channel partners for customer fulfillment.

    “The overall level of channel conflict remains moderate to high. However, value-added resellers and solution providers say they’re engaged in more collaborative, mutually beneficial sales activities with their vendors,” said Lawrence M. Walsh, president and CEO of The 2112 Group and principal analyst of the report. “This is a strong indication that vendors are working more closely with partners to uncover and close sales opportunities.”

    Channel conflict management remains a critically important issue for IT solution providers, as clashes with vendors compromise customer relationships and revenue streams, as well as reduce confidence in future business activities. It is a key issue among solution providers in making partnership decisions: Two-thirds of solution providers say they would de-emphasize their primary vendors in favor of an alternative if conflict were persistent and unresolved.

    The Channel Conflict Report – a part of the 2112 Quarterly Channel Review series – provides insights into channel conflict sources, solution provider experiences, quality of management tools and techniques, and the impact of unresolved conflict. New to the report is a channel wish list for vendors in improving channel conflict.

    “The channel understands conflict is a fact of life, and nothing will completely eliminate it. They want to work with vendors in better managing conflict. The 2112 Channel Conflict Report is a guide for vendors in obtaining a clearer understanding of conflict and how to mitigate it with their revenue-producing partners,” Walsh said.

    A complimentary summary of the 2nd Annual Channel Conflict Report is available at The 2112 Group Web site. Full reports and 2112 research subscriptions are available for purchase. Visit http://the2112group.com/2013-2nd-annual-channel-conflict-report/.

    Scottsdale, AZ, July 26, 2013 --(PR.com)-- BrilliSoft recently published an Android app in the Google Play Store that could very well save your life. It turns your Android phone into the ultimate security device.

    When you need help, Shake For Help (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.shakeforhelp) uses patent-pending technology to reach emergency contacts with very little effort. It is perfect in situations where it’s not possible or practical to dial the authorities and explain your situation to them. Unlike other security apps, you don’t need to launch it, tap buttons on the screen, or try to remember what to do.

    Once you have installed and configured Shake For Help on your phone, if you’re ever in trouble, all you need to do is shake your phone. That’s it... The app does the rest. It will periodically contact emergency contacts and let them know you may be in trouble. It will also let them know where you are and send them other useful information.

    For example, if someone is following you, trying to break into your home, threatening you, trying to sexually assault you, or if you need medical help, dialing a number on your phone is not always an option. With this app, all you need to do is briefly shake your smartphone and it will let your emergency contacts know that you need help.

    “Considering the very real and common threat of assault on women when they venture outside, the ability to reach out for help instantly makes me feel safer. I feel empowered and have some peace of mind when I leave home, with this additional ‘weapon’ in my mobile device!” said Valierie Jee, a college student.

    Shake For Help has been designed to be extremely simple to use. Young children and elderly users will have no problem configuring the app. It takes a minute or two, even for the technologically-challenged. The configuration process is simple and has step-by-step instructions, in simple English (more languages will be added soon).

    Once the app has been configured, you never need to launch it again. It will run in the background, listening for a shake trigger if you are ever in trouble. It will then send out the necessary distress signals, along with useful information, such as your location and battery level, to get you the help you need. It will continue doing so, periodically, until you stop it. It will also vibrate regularly to let you know that it’s sending out distress signals.

    “I feel comfortable knowing that my kids have the app installed on their phones and can simply shake it if they feel threatened, on the playground, when out with their friends, or walking home from school!” said Nikolas Kairinos, CEO of BrilliSoft, the developer of the app, explaining why they chose to develop such an app. He added that “It makes perfect sense for mobile devices to be used as security devices, as they are location-aware and with us 24/7.”

    The app is also useful for medical emergencies. Consider an elderly person with a heart condition: if they are alone and feel intense chest pains, all they need to do is briefly shake their device. It takes a lot less time than trying to call someone to explain that something is wrong and tell them where you are. This app could increase the odds of surviving medical emergencies.

    “The Shake For Help application continues Extentia’s commitment to innovation and the need to deliver genuine value to our communities,” said Umeed Kothavala, CEO, Extentia, which worked with BrilliSoft to bring this app to market. “This application has been designed with inputs from real users who might need it in the real world. Women on lonely streets, senior citizens at home, and tourists in unfamiliar environments, will now have an unparalleled tool that gives them security, access to help in emergencies, and the ability to be independent. All that packed into a simple, single application that will run on your phone.”

    The Google Play Store description has more information about many of the features built into the app to make it effective and practical. For instance, the app includes features to prevent accidental distress signals being sent out (if the user shakes the device by mistake). It also silences the device when an emergency situation has been triggered, so that the attacker is not made aware of its presence or that it’s sending out distress signals.

    With Shake For Help installed on your Android device, if you’re ever in trouble, just shake your phone and help will be on the way.

    San Francisco, CA, July 26, 2013 --(PR.com)-- FiberStore announced that a family of RS232 to Ethernet converters has been added to its product lineup today. The new RS232 to Ethernet converters will become the best choice for transmitting series data across an IP network by utilizing the most flexible, high performance and advanced technology. New modes of the field-proven RS232 converters is ideal for IT professionals to utilize in communicating with serial RS232 devices over an Ethernet network.

    RS232 to Ethernet Converters convert RS485/RS422/RS233 serial communication interface to Ethernet plastic core cables. "Since CAT5 is inexpensive and commonly available, some users prefer to use Ethernet cabling for their serial equipment connections. FiberStore RS232 converters, with RJ45 connectors along with the appropriate DB9 or DB25 adapters make this possible," said Thorndike, director of FiberStore product division.

    Thorndike also pointed out that FiberStore RS232 to Ethernet converters are accomplished through the use of software Xon/Xoff flow control, as well as hardware flow control with RTS and CTS signaling between DTE and DCE.

    FiberStore's RS232 to Ethernet converters family of interface converters connect fiber optic linked terminals to controllers having either RS485 or RS232 interface ports, providing electrical to optical and optical to electrical conversion. The advantage of conversion to a fiber optic communication standard is that the data transmission is no longer susceptible to electrostatic or electromagnetic fields. Additionally, the ports of the connected terminals are protected from damage by potential differences (ground variations) that often exist between them.

    "These new converters are supplied complete with a 2-Pin external wall-mount power supply that provides 100VAC-240VAC, 50/60 Hz and is GS, CE, and RoHS certified shortly later in next month," said Thorndike. "Serial RS232 based software applications and devices were implemented around a simple direct cable connection, however as companies begin replacing their direct serial cable connections with a modern Ethernet infrastructure using serial RS232 to Ethernet converter products, some will experience difficulties in making this networked connection behave as it did when directly connected. This can be attributed to the lack of raw processing power as well as how the data is handled across the network by the RS232-Ethernet converters."
