    SINGAPORE--(Marketwired - August 12, 2013) - You have seen it on your box of cereals, on your flight boarding pass, and even under the bonnet of your car. Discover how the barcode has been helping our universe stay organized for nearly forty years, and why it remains our favourite track and trace solution.

    Barcodes - leading the way for four decades
    The barcode system was first commercialized in 1974 on a packet of chewing gum. Over past four decades, the barcode became ubiquitous as a track and trace tool, from the supermarket to automotive production lines, and even the most advanced medical labs in the world. Why do multi-million dollar MNCs continue to prefer traditional barcode systems to other technologies?

    Barcodes offer simplicity, universality and low cost -- unmatched by any other track and trace technology. The benefits of implementing a barcode system make a powerful argument for any company wishing to:

    - Improve production efficiencies
    - Improve management and reporting
    - Improve accuracies and reduce mistakes

    Improved logistics and customer experience in retail stores
    Often the most common use of barcodes, retail stores employ barcode for fast checkouts by scanning barcodes instead of manual input of price tags. By integrating the barcode checkout process with the backend inventory system, the store manager knows which stocks have been selling and require replenishment, greatly improving the logistics process and preventing loss of sales opportunities when inventories are not replenished on time. Retailers also depend on barcodes on their membership cards to identify consumers and create profiles for customized marketing efforts and to understand consumers' shopping patterns.

    Increasing productivity in automotive factories
    Track and trace barcode solutions help businesses track and trace the goods from production to sales and distribution. For production lines, barcode stickers on the products help to track and trace mistakes and faults along the production line quickly. The automotive industry makes extensive use of barcodes along their complex production lines, applying barcode stickers to each body frame and component added down the line. Each time an error is spotted, the barcode immediately identifies the faulty riveting or stamping machines, or a batch of faulty components. This greatly simplifies the process of identifying the problem and rectifying the error, and in turn increases productivity.

    Enhanced lab sample tracking accuracy
    The South East Asian Influenza Clinical Research Network (SEAICRN) is an excellent case study of how a barcode system can handle even complex track and trace requirements. The researchers required complex label information of sample type, date and time of collection, participant information, and storage location -- all on a small barcode label pasted on biological samples which are to be stored in a freezer. SEAICRN worked closely with their vendor to procure labels designed for sub-zero conditions, and integrated the track and trace solution with SEAICRN's existing software to identify the storage location of each biological sample. Even with complexity of multiple labs and urgent timeline, the barcode tracking solution enabled the researchers to monitor and retrieve specific samples easily and quickly, making it possible for researchers to determine the effectiveness of a promising influenza treatment and reap enormous benefits for the health of millions worldwide.

    Before you implement a barcode track and trace system...
    It is easy to see the potentials of how the barcode system will help your business, but you should understand that the barcode label represents only part of the track and trace process. It is critical to work with a vendor that can deliver a system that fits into your process instead of the other way around. Here are three key considerations when selecting your vendor:

    1) The vendor should have labels that work on various substrates
    Do you need labels that are freeze-proof, corrosion-proof or greaseproof? Consult your vendor to ensure their labels can adhere securely and withstand your operating environment.

    2) Look for a track and trace solution that is simple and efficient
    Numerous staff in your organization will use your barcode track and trace solution, so it is critical that it is simple and efficient in order to be effective.

    3) A good vendor must provide the best hardware and software
    A barcode track and trace solution comprises of the label, label printer and software. Your vendor should have a range of label printers that comes with user-friendly labeling software to customize labels if required, instead of pushing you off-the-shelf solutions. And we cannot over emphasize the importance of the vendor having good supporting software systems and data collection tools to integrate barcode systems with backend logistic software for a seamless and complete track and trace solution!

    RESTON, VA--(Marketwired - August 12, 2013) -  Siteworx, LLC, a digital experience agency, today announced its inclusion in a new report on delivering digital customer experiences entitled, "Digital Clarity Group's Guide to Service Providers for Web Content and Customer Experience Management." The new report, which was released earlier this morning, evaluates over 40 North American service providers, including Siteworx, and highlights the critical need for outsourced agencies to successfully create and manage digital content experiences across all channels.

    "Customer experience management is hard, complicated, and new," says Tim Walters, Partner and Principal Analyst at DCG. "Very few organizations have all of the in-house resources necessary to deploy the technologies, formulate the strategies, and optimize the outcomes. Most companies should -- and will -- turn to external service providers for assistance."

    "One of the things that we try to communicate here at Siteworx is the value that multiple perspectives bring to a digital product or experience," says Tim McLaughlin, Siteworx CEO and co-founder. "Designers are not designing for the sake of art, they're designing for the sake of customer experience and technologists aren't putting constraints in place, they're giving capabilities to the experience. It is with these unique perspectives that digital experience agencies add value and ultimately deliver optimal digital customer experiences to our client's consumers."

    This report is the first of its kind to elevate the importance of the agency and systems integrator side of the web content management (WCM) equation. More importantly, this report thoroughly profiles service providers that are astutely moving away from traditional WCM to more complex customer experiences. According to this report, "Siteworx understands the demands, complexity, and ever-changing nature of developing and implementing CEM strategy, and have the skillset to help clients throughout the process. Their transition into delivering CEM business solutions has been one of growth rather than a shift in approach, adding talent to their team to include new and emerging technology, trends, and channels."

    SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - August 12, 2013) - Leading UHF Gen2 radio frequency identification (RFID) technology provider Impinj, Inc. today announced that retailer American Apparel is significantly improving inventory accuracy and on-shelf availability with a fully automated Senitron inventory visibility solution powered by Impinj. The wide-area RFID system brings immediate benefits to American Apparel's operations by improving in-store visibility and security and by eliminating manual cycle counting, which will empower in-store staff to dedicate more time to customer service and sales-related activities.

    "The Senitron solution delivers on the dream of hands-free, full-time inventory visibility," said Stacey Shulman, CTO of American Apparel. "We get accuracy levels that meet or exceed handheld readers, in real-time and with less work. We've been amazed at the effortless accuracy of the Senitron system to not only deliver counts but also item locations. This enables a wealth of possibilities in our roadmap towards a robust omni-channel shopping experience for our customers."

    After more than six months of performance testing in select American Apparel locations, the retailer recently began chain-wide deployment of Senitron's system, which utilizes fixed RFID antennas mounted among a store's ceiling track lights. The automated inventory system employs several of Impinj's Speedway® readers per store with each reader energizing 12 to 15 antennas via multiple Speedway Antenna Hubs. The readers transfer information from tags into a database that provides accurate, real-time, full-store RFID coverage, including detailed tag location, 24 hours per day. By tagging 98% of a store's 75,000 products with Impinj's Monza® chips, American Apparel and Senitron leverage key benefits of Impinj's GrandPrix™ platform further enhancing system performance. GrandPrix is the integrated set of Gen2-compliant hardware, software, application interfaces and intellectual property that together deliver the best identification and location solutions.

    During performance testing by American Apparel, the Senitron system's continuous monitoring of tagged inventory helped both staff and customers to easily locate merchandise and thereby uncover a substantial number of missing items. This enhanced inventory visibility, in conjunction with data from point-of-sale, enables measurement of merchandising effectiveness and improves business analytics. Senitron's system also improved security by monitoring items in all locations of stores, including dressing rooms, restrooms and exits, through non-visual means. By automatically taking complete, accurate, real-time inventory information, including item location, Senitron's system freed staff to spend more time interacting with customers and selling. American Apparel plans to deploy the RFID solution in all North American stores.

    "Retail executives and managers must know if inventory is positioned to sell at all times in order to delight customers and manage their business," said Kambiz Saghezi, CEO of Senitron. "We are pleased to partner with Impinj to deliver continuous, automated inventory monitoring to clients such as American Apparel who want to elevate service standards in retail."

    "Watch American Apparel if you want to know where RFID in retail is headed," said Larry Arnstein, Vice President of Business Development at Impinj. "They were the first to deploy RFID chain wide with near 100% tagging and handheld cycle counting. With the help of Senitron, they are leading again in the move to hands-free methods that deliver even more value with less effort."

    About Impinj

    Impinj is the leading provider of ultra-high frequency (UHF) radio-frequency identification (RFID) solutions used to identify, locate and authenticate items. Impinj's RFID products are the world's most comprehensive and widely adopted; they include tag chips, reader chips, fixed readers, software and innovations that support complete system solutions.

    BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - August 12, 2013) - As more consumers and businesses purchase Android smartphones and tablets, it's no surprise that more apps are now associated with security risks and privacy issues. According to recent industry research, 80 percent of Android apps exhibit at least one risky behavior. An equally alarming industry statistic, users not running the most recent version of Android (comprising more than 90 percent of active users) are vulnerable to known exploits, resulting in a more than 600 percent increase in Android malware infections.

    In order to keep up with and prevent these risks, Sophos has introduced the latest version of its free Android security app, Sophos Mobile Security 3.0, its full-featured mobile security and anti-virus application.

    What's New in Sophos Mobile Security 3.0

    • Application protection: Protects the start of selected applications with a password, meaning you can let others use your phone without risking your corporate data security. You can protect your settings or Google Play app and any other mobile application.

    • Faster Scanning: Significantly improves scan speed by leveraging the power of multi-core phones

    • Web Protection (now included in free version): Blocks access to malicious or phishing websites, so you can access the Internet worry-free

    "If Android malware risks weren't enough, Android device loss and theft are an enormous issue, especially considering that more than 100 cell phones are lost or stolen every minute just in the US alone," said Thomas Lippert, senior product manager, mobile, Sophos. "Mobile malware leads to data loss and unexpected cost issues, while actual device loss and theft leads to potentially much worse. Either way, it's imperative for users to ensure their devices are protected. And we're providing this protection -- for free."

    Sophos Mobile Security is offered for free in Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sophos.smsec.

    TOKYO--(Marketwired - August 12, 2013) - Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), the industry leader in network innovation, has announced that its QFabric data center network fabric architecture is being used to power StarBED3, the advanced IP network simulator run by the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT). Deployment of the Juniper Networks® QFX3000-M QFabric™ System gives StarBED3 an ultra-low latency, high-bandwidth infrastructure to support research and development of next-generation networks, security and services.

    Located at the Hokuriku StarBED Technology Center, StarBED3 is NICT's third-generation IP network test bed, aimed at emulating large and complex network environments. These environments are critical for researchers to simulate and test new Internet technologies. As one of the world's largest emulation test beds, it comprises more than 1,100 physical servers, together with network switch clusters for controlling experimental nodes and supporting interactive communication over a backbone operating at speeds of up to 200 Gbps.

    A key issue in constructing the StarBED3 network infrastructure was how to connect the largest possible number of servers at high speed with low latency while working within physical space and power consumption limitations. Another challenge was the traditional approach of concentrating core switches in a single location, creating high cable densities that significantly compromise operational maintenance procedures. NICT was able to overcome these challenges with QFabric technology.

    News Highlights

    • NICT deployed a QFabric System comprising a single-layer, distributed switch architecture featuring top-of-rack access nodes and a centralized control node for each logical device, significantly reducing operating costs.
    • The QFabric System currently links 224 experimental servers at StarBED3 at high speed and with less than three microseconds of latency, all within a compact space and with low power consumption.
    • The new QFabric test bed will enable researchers from universities, public institutes and private industries to test large-scale emulation technology platforms, network platform validation technology and multilayer integration validation technology in an IPv4/IPv6 environment.

    Supporting Quotes

    National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT)

    "We have to provide a highly flexible PC server cluster network suitable for a wide range of R&D projects on ICT technology. But often, when you try to design a flexible configuration consisting of many PC server groups linked together by small network devices, you run into problems with speed limitations and latency as well as with operational and administration standardization. QFabric addresses these issues and provides the ideal configuration for next-generation data centers. We see QFabric as a powerful tool for taking our large-scale emulation environment into the next generation."

    Richmond, VA, August 13, 2013 --(PR.com)-- PolycreteUSA’s mission is to make it easy to design, build and own energy efficient structures that stand up to Mother Nature. The company took another big step in that direction recently with the launch of a new website, PolycreteUSA.com.

    “We wanted to get our story across more clearly. Who we are, what we do and how we do it. We think the new format accomplishes that,” said company President Bruce Anderson. “Our technology has been used in Canada, Europe and Asia since 1988, but people here in the USA still see it as new and mysterious. We want everyone in the construction community to see how how cool it is and to realize that this technology really will make their project easier to complete.”

    The technology is a system for constructing commercial buildings with highly insulated concrete walls. Conventionally formed concrete walls involve a labor-intensive process of constructing a wood or metal formwork structure, filling it with concrete, then dis-assembling all the formwork after the concrete hardens.

    The Polycrete formwork is set up in a fraction of the time and does not have to be dis-assembled. It’s made from expanded polystyrene panels that contain a steel reinforcing structure which makes it strong enough to contain the concrete. Since the formwork becomes the insulation for the building, it also eliminates that step in the construction process.

    “The Polycrete system eliminates several other steps,” Anderson commented. “Four or more. Normally you would have to build a wood or steel frame wall inside the masonry wall to hold your insulation and sheetrock. That all goes away with this system because you can attach sheetrock directly to the Polycrete wall by means of its built-in steel fastening strips.”

    The new website includes useful information for architects, contractors and building owners.

    Architects will be pleased to see CAD files that can be downloaded to make their design work easier and detailed information on how doors, windows, floors and roofs are incorporated.

    Contractors will find complete information on assembling Polycrete walls and how it works with electrical, plumbing and other building systems.

    Building owners can learn about operating costs savings and even how they can benefit from Federal tax credits and deductions from using the Polycrete system.

    Building products like the Polycrete Big Block ICF system have to undergo a thorough series of tests before they are approved by the International Code Council. The ICC sets the rules that most local building codes are based on. Polycrete makes all of its ICC test results available on the website for download.

    “Intertek testing service ran all of our ICC tests. They’re the number one building materials testing service on earth, and I can tell you their results prove Polycrete Big Block is the strongest ICF on the market,” Anderson said. “Fastener withdrawal, shear tests, fire ratings, you name it. Some other ICFs are close to us in one or two areas, but overall, The Big Block is tops. That’s why we put all the data on the web for the world to see. This is not just a salesman making up stories, it’s the real deal.”

    The company would like to hear from construction professionals after they look over the site. “It’s an evolution,” Anderson said. “We’re working to develop more resources for installers, too. In the meantime, we really want to hear what the building community thinks of what we’re presenting. If there is something you’d like to see as you consider Polycrete for your next project, please let us know.”

    The new website is at www.PolycreteUSA.com. They’re also on Facebook. Anderson said, “There’s more pictures on the Facebook page. Contractors send them to us as their jobs progress and we share their successes on Facebook.

    Aurora, CO, August 13, 2013 --(PR.com)-- iBeta Quality Assurance (“iBeta”), a National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) accredited Biometrics Testing Laboratory, and DEA-approved EPCS Biometric Certification Lab has completed one of the first DEA EPCS biometric certifications for a series of fingerprint devices that can now officially be used in EPCS (Electronic Prescription of Controlled Substances) systems by prescribers of controlled substances in accordance with US DOJ DEA regulations. The biometric devices certified were the Lumidigm V-Series V3xx fingerprint readers. In addition to other regulations referenced in 21 CFR Parts 1311, iBeta determined that the four V3xx devices, when properly incorporated into an overall prescribing system, meet the required false match rate of 0.001.

    iBeta’s Biometrics Team was very excited to work with Lumidigm. A global leader in authentication solutions, Lumidigm is dedicated to enabling convenient, secure, and reliable identification of people, products and credentials.

Lumidigm and its strategic partners have met challenging authentication requirements in markets such as healthcare, banking, entertainment, and government services.

    Kevin Wilson Ph.D., Principle Investigator on the Lumidigm V-Series certification project, stated, “The Lumidigm devices not only meet the DEA false match rate regulation, we encountered no failures to enroll during the certification test effort.”

    iBeta looks forward to continuing a strong working relationship with Lumidigm. iBeta’s Biometrics Team is available to perform testing on various biometric systems, devices and components.

    The biometrics certification report of the Lumidigm V3xx devices is publicly available at iBeta Biometrics (http://www.ibeta.com/our-services/biometrics/epcs/reports).

    Belgrade, Serbia and Montenegro, August 13, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Pixelnetica, an established leader in mobile computer vision application development, is pleased to announce the release of a new Free version of SharpScan with all of the functionality of the Professional product. SharpScan is the industry-leading mobile scanning app for the iPhone. Its unparalleled image processing speed and quality allows user to scan documents and photos on the go in less than 3 seconds per page.

    Simply taking a picture of a document with the iPhone camera does not result in document quality images. Photos display geometric distortion resulting from the angle of the camera in relation to the document and often have unwanted background shadows.

    SharpScan was created to overcome these inherent shortcomings and to produce high-quality documents from the iPhone just as if they were scanned with a conventional scanner. Scanner-quality documents can now be produced on-the-go quickly, easily, and conveniently from any iPhone.

    SharpScan’s unique Smart Crop feature offers fully automated boundary detection, cropping, image alignment, and perspective correction for fast, accurate image acquisition, though these parameters may be adjusted manually by the user as well.

    Non-destructive image editing features are included that allow the user the freedom to edit and experiment with their documents with the confidence that they can always revert to the original image.

    SharpScan it is the only mobile scanning app on the market that creates tiny true Black-and-White, scanner-quality, PDF images. Combined with the lossless image compression results in files which are up to 20 times smaller than a normal JPEG, an extremely important feature when data transfer speed or cost is an issue.

    SharpScan’s provides a pleasant mobile experience through its intuitive user interface. The menus are laid out clearly and are easy to navigate and the controls are simple to master allowing users convenient access to all of its advanced features, including document password protection, printing and integrated sharing via email, Dropbox and etc.

    “SharpScan raises the bar for mobile scanning applications to a new level,” says Pixelnetica CEO, Dmitry Harchenko, “It’s designed to take full advantage of the iPhone’s hardware capabilities such as muticore processing and GPU acceleration. Our proprietary artificial intelligence algorithms that accurately identify the edge of a document and automatically make cropping decisions without help from the user are unmatched by our competitors.”

    But Pixelnetica is not resting on its laurels. The company is hard at work on a new version that will feature improved algorithms, faster speeds, and high quality as well as support for tablets and synchronization across devices via the cloud. Users of the current version will receive the upgrade free of charge.

    The only difference between the free version and the full versions is that the free version includes in-application advertising and the PDFs include a reference to the product, though the images themselves remain unaffected. These minor limitations can be eliminated at anytime by purchasing the full version conveniently from the app.

    Both SharpScan and SharpScan Pro are available through the Apple store. For more information, including screenshots, demonstration videos, tutorials, and answers to Frequently Asked Questions, please visit www.pixelnetica.com.

    Pricing and Availability:
    SharpScan is currently available for download on the Apple App Store for Free in the Productivity category. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 6.0 or later. App is optimized for iPhone 5.

    Company Information:
    Pixelnetica is a privately held company established by group of computer vision and mobile technology passioned enthusiasts.

    Company dedicated to development cutting edge imaging technologies and highest caliber mobile, desktop and server-side software applications.

    PHILADELPHIA, PA, August 13, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The long-suffering big-box retailer Best Buy is once again in the news--but according to online business leader Rich Gorman, it's hardly for the right reasons. A recent Forbes article reports that Best Buy has announced ambitious plans to revamp its online presence, allowing it to go head-to-head with sites like Amazon.com. While the company hopes this move will revive its long-dwindling prospects, Rich Gorman is not so sure. He has released a new press statement, weighing in on the matter.

    "Best Buy rightly assumes that many of its woes stem from the advent of online shopping portals, of which Amazon.com is the most obvious," Rich Gorman opines, in his new press statement. "Certainly, for Best Buy to survive, it needs to address the Amazon problem in some way. A revamped Web presence does not meaningfully tackle all of the company's problems, however; most obviously, it ignores the fact that Best Buy maintains many stores that are essentially just losing money and gathering dust."

    According to Forbes, Best Buy currently maintains more than 2,000 stores around the world. These stores are regarded by many as obstacles for Best Buy to overcome, but the article contends that these stores actually hold the key to Best Buy's possible success.

    "The benefit that Best Buy stores can offer is not necessarily that they can undercut Amazon.com's prices by a couple of bucks," Gorman says. "Those piddling savings are simply not worth the inconvenience of customers actually driving to a Best Buy location, rather than simply getting anything and everything they need with Amazon's one-stop shopping. Instead, Best Buy stores can offer customers the one thing Amazon lacks, and that's real service."

    The Forbes article argues along the same lines. Says the article, future success for Best Buy "will come when Best Buy employees can actually provide REAL assistance to shoppers, and turn shoppers back into customers again. It will come when the stores are truly shoppable."

    Rich Gorman says that the conventional wisdom about Best Buy is that it has suffered because its stores have become locations for "showrooming"--that is, "customers using the store to check out merchandise, make sure they like it, and then order it, for a cheaper price, from Amazon."

    The real problem Best Buy faces, according to Forbes, is that competent employees have been systematically removed from the stores--and Gorman agrees. "Knowledgeable and service-driven employees could enable Best Buy to offer customers a true experience, in ways that Amazon.com never could--and that may be the company's only real answer for staying afloat in the Amazon Era," Gorman remarks.

    Improving the stores may be essential for Best Buy's success, Forbes concludes, but it is not the only thing the company needs to address. "That doesn't mean customers don't want a good experience on its web site," the article notes. "It means they ALSO want a good experience in its stores."

    Rich Gorman is an online marketing and branding specialist.

    Rich Gorman is a top name in the field of direct response marketing. Through prolific blogging and consulting work, he has become known as a true industry thought leader.

    London, United Kingdom, August 14, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Is it still necessary to have a fixed telephone line? Just over two thirds (64%) of respondents to a new web-based ISPreview.co.uk survey, which was conducted with 998 Internet users in the United Kingdom between 15th July and 12th August 2013, have said that they'd scrap their fixed phone line if it wasn't required for a home broadband connection (21% answered with “no” and 15% said “maybe”).

    Furthermore 82% of respondents agreed that the price of line rental (currently hovering around GBP15 a month), which has been racing upwards for the past few years, was the services main drawback. But the study also claimd that only 36% of respondents were saving money by paying for 12 months line rental in advance (e.g. Line Rental Saver), which is offered by most of the largest telecoms providers.

    Perhaps unsurprisingly the most popular way of making voice calls today is actually via a Smartphone and not a land line.

    Which do you use most for making voice calls?
    Mobile (Smartphone) - 62.3%
    Fixed Phone Line - 29.8%
    Separate VoIP Service - 6.6%
    Other - 1.2%

    According to ISPreview.co.uk the average monthly cost of a UK fixed phone line ranges from the equivalent of GBP10 to GBP15 per month and the cost of a home broadband connection is usually added on top of that. Prices for a home broadband service typically vary, from lows of just GBP2 for a budget service to highs of GBP50 per month for a top end connection.

    "Mobiles are becoming increasingly dominant, at least for voice calls, and so we shouldn't be surprised that the once attractive proposition of owning a fixed phone line is now under pressure," said ISPreview.co.uk's Founder, Mark Jackson. "Most consumers still require a fixed line for their home broadband service but in the coming years this too could face a similar threat from the increasingly sophisticated 4G and future 5G based mobile broadband services."

    "In the meantime though people who wish to save money will either have to commit to a longer contract and pre-pay their line rental, or lose the fixed line entirely and take a mobile-only approach. But unless operators like BT can come up with a truly attractive standalone broadband (naked) line service, much like Virgin Media and a handful of altnet providers currently offer, then most people will have little choice but to keep paying full whack for line rental in order to keep their broadband," concluded Mark Jackson.
