    TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 28, 2013) - EQ Works (TSX:EQ) a leader in targeted mobile, social, video and online advertising today announced the launch of Agency First, a partner program designed to extend digital media buying capabilities to advertising agencies that don't have in-house expertise. 

    Agency First empowers agencies with the ability to deliver sophisticated media buying solutions, previously only available to the largest players. Using the EQ Works' proprietary platform, small to mid-sized agencies will be equipped with real-time media buying, optimization and reporting capabilities, in addition to their own dedicated or in-house expert resource. 

    Through Agency First, trained media buyers are either dedicated or working on-site at partner agencies and are available to consult, plan and execute digital media buys using EQ Works' state-of-the-art real-time targeting platform. Expert staff will provide complete support for agency partners, from consulting on media strategy, to participating in the RFP process, to attending client pitches and meetings. 

    "Larger agencies have either invested millions of dollars in platforms with similar capabilities, or have offloaded the media buying function and accountability," said Geoffrey Rotstein, President of EQ Works. "With Agency First, control resides with the agency. Partners will be able to harness the knowledge and insights from a dedicated media buying team and work directly with leading digital marketers, without any of the associated costs." 

    There is no cost for the program. The only prerequisite is that agency partners have a desire to compete for media budgets and provide the best possible solutions to their clients. The benefits to the agencies include increased revenue and profitability, access to a state-of-the-art media buying platform, on-site dedicated staff and access to real-time insights and reporting. 

    "Today, more than ever, agencies need to work closer with media planners and buyers to ensure flawless execution of campaigns," said David Katz, EVP of EQ Works. "There are dozens of larger ad agencies in Canada being served by their captive or affiliated media agencies. Few options exist for hundreds of other digital agencies, many of which are competing well with the larger players in other respects. With Agency First, we came up with a solution that allows our agency partners to have access to their own best-of-breed technology combined with greater expertise, control and influence in the media buying process." 

    Agency First is available to advertising agencies across Canada either as a dedicated service or shared service to align with agency partners' media budgets. More information on EQ Works' Agency First program is available by visiting

    PETALUMA, CA--(Marketwired - August 28, 2013) - MarketLive, the leading provider of eCommerce technology for high-growth merchants, today announced results of their mid-year Performance Index™ report. The mid-year analysis of eCommerce metrics shows that MarketLive customers saw a 15 percent average increase in revenues during the first half of 2013, easily out-performing the industry forecast of 9-to-12 percent ( 2013 annual forecast).

    In addition to the 15 percent average year-over-year (YOY) revenue increase so far this year, MarketLive customers also experienced:

    • increased visitor traffic (+10.9 percent)
    • increased visitor-to-buyer conversion (+5.8 percent)
    • decreases in abandoned carts (-1.2 percent)
    • decreases in abandoned checkouts (-3.0 percent)
    • decreased home page bounce rates (-17.0 percent)

    These across-the-board positive results demonstrate the ways in which MarketLive's Insightful Commerce technology can help online retailers compete effectively even in an eCommerce environment often dominated by Amazon.

    "Our customers rely on MarketLive for insights to help them constantly meet market needs," said Ken Burke, founder and Chairman of MarketLive. "As this Performance Index shows, the world of eCommerce is growing ever more complex. MarketLive continues to improve the levels of insight we provide retailers, so we can help them be more effective in converting customers and growing revenue. This year, we think there are best practices in mobile and tablet, in particular, that will help our customers perform effectively during the holidays."

    Mobile & Tablet Trends
    In this latest edition, MarketLive's Performance Index also includes a spotlight analysis of mobile and tablet trends, showing tablets leading the way:

    • 33 percent of all traffic to customer websites during 1H 2013 came from mobile and tablet devices
    • tablet traffic grew 3X faster than smartphones
    • tablet revenue grew 8X faster than smartphones

    At the growth current rate, mobile and tablet traffic is expected to account for almost half of all website visits within the year.

    Recommendations for Retailers
    At a high level, eCommerce success increasingly depends upon making real connections with consumers as quickly as possible before a competitor diverts their attention. Shopping on multiple devices further drives this need to engage immediately. The lesson is "make each visit count." Beyond the hard metrics, MarketLive recommends that retailers focus on these key areas:

    1. Think beyond the home page -- Search engines often land consumers on pages other than the home page. So every page on the website needs a strong message and clear navigation.

    2. Get suggestive -- Demonstrate your domain expertise by suggesting related products and alternative solutions.

    3. Incorporate quality content -- Photos, videos, great copy and 'how-to' features work together to rank highly on search engines and to ensure that customers keep coming back.

    4. Optimize checkout flows -- Upgrading to a single-page, accordion checkout has shown impressive results for MarketLive customers, with some posting improvements of 10 percent and more.

    5. Embrace multiple devices -- Have a roadmap for continuing to improve the customer experience from mobile.

    6. Get empirical: analyze & test -- Each visit counts. Replace guesswork and unproven hunches with analysis and testing.

    MarketLive's Performance Index reports activity across the entire MarketLive customer base and includes aggregated traffic, site engagement, commerce metrics, and key performance indicators in six market sectors where data is available (apparel & footwear, beauty & health, housewares & furniture, brand manufacturers, brick & mortar, and catalog).

    SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - August 28, 2013) - Zipwhip, the world's first text carrier, announced today that it has been awarded a patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that recognizes the company's unique method of creating a new permanent number for text messaging applications.

    Zipwhip's texting application leverages the company's carrier-grade cloud texting platform to allow businesses to text enable their existing landline and toll-free numbers to send and receive text messages from any connected desktop, tablet or smartphone. The patent covers Zipwhip's methodology for assigning a permanent number to transmit messages to either a single recipient (one-to-one) or to a group of recipients (one-to-many), as in broadcast group texting and reply-all messaging.

    Here's how it works: When one user sends another user a text from the Zipwhip web app, for example, and the message is transmitted via a different number, that number is permanently assigned to that conversation. That innovative approach means that over time, users get familiar with the same number and save it in their contact list for future use. This approach is sometimes the only option for Internet texting, but is most commonly leveraged by group texting services.

    "As a cloud texting company, we're always pushing the limits to provide the cleanest user experience possible," said John Lauer, CEO of Zipwhip. "In cases where we need to use a separate number for transporting messages, our patented process makes sure that number is permanently assigned. Our patent supports the permanent threading of a number so that it's easy to memorize and so users don't have to worry it's going to change over time."

    Zipwhip's patent raises important questions about competing messaging platforms on the market. Any application that gives out a separate new phone number or short code to users to use for texting and forwards a reply message on to an SMS inbox via a permanently assigned number is infringing. In addition, any group messaging platform that permanently assigns a number to a unique group member that may be different than other group members is using Zipwhip's patent strategy to assign a permanent number. In short, any messaging platforms that attempt to improve user experiences by permanently assigning numbers to make it easier for users to memorize and store on contact lists are potentially in violation of Zipwhip's patent.

    About Zipwhip
    Zipwhip, the world's first text carrier, pioneered the concept of cloud texting by enabling existing landline, mobile and toll-free numbers to send and receive text messages from virtually any connected desktop, tablet or smartphone. Zipwhip's carrier-grade cloud texting platform helps mobile and landline operators modernize the text messaging medium. Its technology introduces trailblazing functionality while holding true to the distinct culture of texting that consumers have grown to love. Zipwhip now has more than 7 million registered users of its cloud texting services. For more information, visit

    LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM and SUNNYVALE, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 28, 2013) - Viking Line, the leading passenger traffic company for the Baltic Sea region, has chosen Azul's Zing™ for its customer reservation portal. Following a two week pilot of Zing, Viking Line saw immediate business benefit which resulted in a quick decision to replace its existing JVM (Java Virtual Machine) with the market-leading Azul solution.

    Viking Line's main business rationale for deploying Zing was to enhance the customer experience on its Java-based reservation portal - site wait times and downtime were deemed unacceptable during peak selling periods. Prior to the engagement with Azul, Viking Line was experiencing Java scalability issues and inconsistent response times during peak loads. Using Zing, the system is now much more stable, allowing Viking Line to support hundreds of customers, running hundreds of transactions, simultaneously and with consistent response times.

    Since Zing's installation, Viking Line has also been able to redirect previously "unproductive" developer time that was spent tuning, monitoring and testing the previously used JVM. In addition, as Zing is able to manage large amounts of data while also maintaining high allocation rates, Viking Line will be able to deliver additional value and productivity from its existing infrastructure, delaying the need for any new server/infrastructure upgrades as the business is able to work their current IT assets to the maximum.

    For Java-based customer-facing applications, Zing is the only JVM able to provide consistent response times even under unpredictable loads without performance penalty. Optimized for low latency and high throughput, Zing takes Java performance to the next level by eliminating pauses and latency spikes. Zing also includes a zero-overhead management and monitoring tool designed for production-time diagnostics and performance analytics.

    Jan Helin, systems manager at Viking Line, said: "We placed a major focus on evaluating and upgrading our customer reservation portal earlier this year and implementing Zing was an important step in enhancing its performance. Azul's approach to application scalability is unmatched and we have seen a tremendous improvement in application response time consistency since Zing went live."

    Scott Sellers, president and CEO of Azul Systems, said: "Zing provides significant performance and consistency benefits for the online retail sector. It lowers total cost of ownership while simultaneously improving the customer experience. In many cases, hundreds to thousands of developer hours are lost fine tuning underperforming JVMs. By using Zing, our customers and partners are able to eliminate this costly tuning time, and instead focus on the most important tasks of improving their capabilities and growing their business."

    About Azul Systems

    Azul Systems delivers high-performance and elastic Java solutions with unsurpassed scalability, manageability and production-time visibility. Designed and optimized for x86 servers and enterprise-class workloads, Azul's Zing is the only Java runtime that supports highly consistent and pauseless execution for throughput-intensive and QoS-sensitive Java applications. Azul's enhanced Java technologies also enable organizations to simplify their IT operations by deploying fewer application instances while achieving lower average latencies, greater response time consistency and dramatically improved operating costs.

    OAKLAND, CA--(Marketwired - August 28, 2013) - Rockbot, the No. 1 rated bar jukebox app, today announced that the company grew more than tenfold over the last year, now reaching millions of listeners in restaurants and bars across the U.S., and through its continued partnership with Miller Lite is expanding to more venues across Texas. Rockbot initially teamed up with Miller Lite to bring a social, mobile and branded music experience to SXSW 2013 in Austin. Through popular demand, Rockbot's enhanced social music service and Miller Lite's sponsorship of the experience, customers at Texas venues can now use their smartphones to select the music playing at the venue while drinking their favorite beer. By offering customers a social jukebox app and a personalized music experience, Rockbot-enabled bars and restaurants report that they attract more customers, who stay longer and spend more on food and drinks.

    "Miller Lite wants to give local drinkers a unique and exciting music experience when they're out with friends at their favorite bars," said Royce Wills, MillerCoors general manager, South Texas. "Miller Time has always been about enjoying great beer with your friends, and music plays a large role in creating that social environment at bars. Rockbot makes that music experience more fun and interactive for customers."

    With Rockbot, music for bars is more social and engaging than ever before. Venues can decide to play Rockbot's custom music stations or easily create their own vibe from more than 12.5 million tracks and more playlists than any business music service. Rockbot also offers more control than any other service with automated playlists by time of day, and a mobile app for designated staff to easily manage the music via mobile. Customers use Rockbot's mobile jukebox app to pick songs, vote on upcoming music, interact with other bar-goers, share on social media, and review bar specials. When customers use the app, their song selections and votes show up on Rockbot TV displays at the bar, which is an optional component for the business. Social media posts from users highlight their song plays and the bar where they are, encouraging friends to join in on the fun and offering valuable word-of-mouth marketing for the business.

    "We love Rockbot; it's been an easy way to keep our customers at the bar longer," said Rachel Abell, general manager of Bend Sports Bar in San Antonio. "Plus, it's more fun and has a much bigger music selection than our old jukebox."

    "The bar and restaurant scene in cities such as Austin and San Antonio is fiercely competitive, and Rockbot, with the help of Miller Lite, can offer venue owners a competitive differentiator," said Garrett Dodge, co-founder and CEO of Rockbot. "When customers walk into a bar with their friends and have the opportunity to play their favorite songs while also interacting on their favorite social media platforms, they stay longer and spend more money."

    SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - August 29, 2013) - Organizations need to carefully consider how they address security and control in the post-PC era as 73% of US office workers using enterprise-issued tablets admit to downloading personal software and applications onto them. Almost two thirds (62%) do the same on company-issued smartphones and 45% on enterprise-issued laptops. The nationwide survey of 2,000 office workers carried out for Huddle by Ipsos MORI revealed the potential security risks resulting from increasingly blurred lines between personal and enterprise devices. While the majority of the 44% of US office workers using company-issued devices download personal software such as iTunes, Spotify and Dropbox, 52% admit to storing, sharing and working on company documents via their personal smartphones, tablets and laptops.

    While 23% of office workers are aware of their organization's Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy, the study reveals that personal devices are coexisting with enterprise-issued gadgets in the workplace rather than replacing them. According to the office workers surveyed:

    • 37% of workers store work documents on their personal laptop
    • 12% store enterprise documents on their smartphone
    • 8% store company documents on their personal tablets
    • 20% of workers want to use their personal devices for work purposes
    • 6% of office workers have lost either a laptop, smartphone, or tablet enterprise device

    With the countless devices and applications in today's organizations eroding the concept of the corporate network and mobile working becoming more established, companies are presented with a security conundrum. As well as ensuring the safety of enterprise data when it leaves the company's four walls, companies need to also mitigate the risk of employees inadvertently downloading viruses or other malware their phones, tablets and laptops.

    "The meteoric rise of the cloud and mobile devices -- whether personal or company property -- in the workplace, along with people's expectations that they should be able to work from any location, at any time, means it's no longer possible to keep all corporate data on company premises," explains Alastair Mitchell, CEO, Huddle. "The post-PC era is well and truly here. Organizations now need to consider how they stop company data walking out of the door with people and what measures need to be put in place to ensure teams can get their jobs done without compromising security. Providing teams with enterprise-grade apps that support collaboration on the move, as well as being simple to use, will help ensure they don't start using consumer tools to provide easier ways to access the information they need. These apps should come with granular permission, encryption in transit and at rest, and remote wipe capabilities."

    According to the study, office workers in the 25 - 31 and 32 - 38 year old age groups are the worst offenders for downloading personal apps and software on company-issued devices:

    • 57% of 25 - 31 year olds and 55% of 32 - 38 year olds download personal apps and software onto enterprise laptops
    • 81% of 32 - 38 year olds and 70% of 25 - 31 year olds download personal apps and software onto enterprise smartphones
    • 82% of 32 - 38 year olds download personal apps and software onto enterprise tablets

    When it comes to stashing enterprise content on personal laptops, tablets and smartphones, office workers aged 18 - 24 years old are the most likely culprits as:

    • 51% keep work documents on personal laptops
    • 42% store work files on personal smartphones
    • 11% keep enterprise documents on personal tablets

    "We're now seeing millions of power workers using their personal devices alongside company-issued smartphones, laptops and tablets," explains Jim Lundy, CEO and Lead Analyst, Aragon Research. "These employees have created their own workplace, using the most effective tools for the time, place and task to maximize their own productivity. With IT groups no longer identifying and provisioning the best technology for business, their challenge is to effectively manage the mixture of enterprise and personal devices and applications present in their organization. Personal productivity tools are rapidly advancing so businesses need to let workers maximize their own capabilities, while protecting enterprise data and systems. Enterprise-grade services, such as Huddle, which combine security with usability present organizations with the best of both worlds."

    Note to Editors: Ipsos MORI interviewed a representative sample of 2,000 office workers aged 18-65 drawn from its Panel of 921,000 people in the USA via an online questionnaire between 2nd and 9th April 2013. Data is unweighted.

"It is clear from these awards that our value proposition is really resonating with industry observers and end users.

    • Scale-out performance independent of storage capacity: With PernixData FVP, increased storage performance is as simple as clustering more server side flash. Performance can be architected based on specific VMs or application requirements, rather than being exclusively tied to data store requirements.
    • Seamless deployment: The PernixData FVP technology leverages the investment in infrastructure that companies already have in place. The software is deployed in less than 20 minutes within the hypervisor kernel, with no changes (or reboots) required to VMs, servers or primary storage. 
    • Clustered platform compatible with all VMware operations: PernixData FVP uses patent-pending Flash Cluster™ technology to enable any host to remotely access the flash device(s) on any other host in the cluster. This technology enables PernixData FVP to seamlessly support all VMware operations and products, such as vMotion, DRS, HA, Snapshot, VDP, Site Recovery Manager™, Horizon View™ and vCloud Director®.
