    SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA--(Marketwired - July 12, 2013) - The Board of Directors of VisualVault Corporation (CNSX:VVT) (the "Company") wishes to announce several material corporate developments.

    With the appointment of John Shackleton to the Board of Directors as Chairman, the Company has defined its broader long-term vision: build a large software as a service (SaaS) business process management (BPM) software company through both organic and acquisitive growth. While acquiring the VisualVault service platform from Auersoft LLC or a similar platform remains a key initiative, the strategy of the Company is to build and sell specific, use-case, BPM-solution applications. The Company's organic growth opportunities are numerous and, for that reason, an initial focus on the most attractive opportunities is key. Management and the Board have agreed that certain defined segments of the United States healthcare market represent recurring revenue opportunities with the potential to drive projected annual revenues in excess of $66,000,000 within three years.

    The Company has also more clearly defined its acquisition strategy. Acquisitions will come in three forms: 1) domain expertise software companies with good customers, 2) stranded BPM software companies, and 3) BPM companies with unique solutions. All of these acquisition targets have valuable recurring revenues that will incrementally grow as the Company offers its platform to their established customer base. The Company has identified selected acquisitions that complement its focus on healthcare.

    The Company previously announced a $9,600,000 financing consisting of 32,000,000 pre-consolidated units of the Company's securities, each unit consisting of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant is exercisable for a period of two years from the closing of the private placement at a price of $.35 per consolidated share. The Company also announced a first closing of the private placement for gross proceeds of $1,400,000, to be used for general business development and working capital. The Company will use the balance of the funding to identify one or more acquisitions referred to above, thus using available resources in the most accretive manner possible for near-term revenue generation.

    In light of the expanded business model noted above, the Company's management and Board have elected to change the name of the Company to reflect a broader scope, direction, and branding of the business. Shareholders will be asked to approve a change of name at the next annual general meeting scheduled for August 31, 2013. Management is in the process of selecting a new name and brand for the business.

    The Company's most recent extension to complete the purchase of substantially all the assets of Auersoft LLC expired on July 1, 2013. Insofar as the Company did not close the purchase by July 1, 2013, the agreement expired by its terms. It is the Company's intention to close an asset acquisition concurrently with the closing of the above-noted private placement.

    The Company, separate from its wholly-owned subsidiary, VisualVault Technologies Inc., was granted a Trademark License Agreement to use the VisualVault trademarks on a worldwide, perpetual, royalty free basis. Insofar as the Company intends to establish its own brand and change its name to reflect same, the VisualVault trademark and logo for business development purposes will no longer be used. In addition the Company and VisualVault Technologies Inc. will no longer use Auersoft's VisualVault trademarks and trade name.

    Brent Bollong, President of Auersoft LLC and a director of the Company, will continue to serve as a director of the Company and the Board welcomes his continued support and service.

    Van Potter, CEO of the Company commented, "This rebranding supports the Company's expanded vision for organic and acquisitive growth, and when financing is complete it facilitates our acquisition strategy in the BPM space."

    Hawthorn, Australia, July 13, 2013 --( Techs4Biz Corporation, a leading provider of software products for managing field activities, announces the release of version 6.0 of Pervidi, including seamless integration of RFID, Barcodes and camera functions using Samsung devices.

    “Integrating RFID, barcodes and Camera functions within Pervidi is the next step in the evolution of the mobile workforce. Field staff no longer need to carry bulky or expensive hardware in order to read RFID tags or scan barcodes. This enhancement represents a significant shift in commercial applications in which the use of Samsung smartphones is expanded into a variety of business processes,” says Eitan Shibi, Techs4Biz CTO.

    Pervidi supports an "offline" mode, in which the Pervidi mobile application is used without any need for internet connectivity. Data is subsequently wirelessly "synched" with the server after field staff has concluded their inspections and data collection, which is significantly faster and more efficient than connecting ‘live’ with the server.

    “In addition to enabling our customers to use their own checklists or to select checklists from our extensive checklists and standards library, Pervidi includes unique features such as decision-based inspections, deficiency-tracking and corrective actions – which delivers a complete solution for managing inspections and field activities,” says Mr. Shibi.

    Using Pervidi with Samsung smartphones is specifically applicable to the following industries:
    - Facility / property inspections and audits (retail / commercial)
    - Safety inspections
    - Fall protection inspections and audits
    - Mining
    - Oil and gas
    - Manufacturing
    - Education
    - Health care
    - Start-up checks for trucking and heavy equipment

    Pervidi is sold globally and supports seven languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Swedish. It is offered both as a cloud-based solution (SaaS) and as an in-house implementation.

    Pervidi 6.0 is an enhancement to the current Pervidi versions and will be available in early August 2013.

    WARMINSTER, PA, July 13, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The recently introduced iPal virtual friend app by Some Face LLC is the newest toy in town for kids.

    In this time and age, children have seen almost all kinds of toys and playthings imaginable in their young minds. Just about everything found in real life has its toy equivalent. This just shows that a child's imaginary play world closely resembles actual life.

    Friendship is one of the more beneficial aspects of life. Young children are being taught to socialize with other kids as a healthy part of development. Homes, schools, and other human environments promote friendship because it is a type of relationship that is needed by all people and no suitable substitute on a long-term basis exists.

    It has been proven that the development of children at a young age includes the healthy use of imagination. Children will have the opportunity to put their imagination at work while practicing their social skills with an iPal virtual friend. Learning is stress-free since there can be no more forgiving friend than an iPal virtual friend.

    Children need friends. They will need to interact correctly with people beyond their family circles. Relating to others is an all-together different ball game as children get exposed to all kinds of behaviour and attitude of children and other people from other social circles.

    Cultivated friendship is a training ground for more complicated personal relationships in the future. Children learn soon enough that the world does not simply revolve around them. They will need to balance their reactions and actions as they go about forming friendships.

    Friendship offers the most ideal ground for understanding the different concepts of human relationships. Children will have to learn what give-and-take means. They will learn that friendship is not one way and that they will have to respond in turn to form it.

    Friendly relations also provide opportunities for children to experience the real human emotions that may be alien to them at a very young age with no exposure beyond family members. They will learn that it is natural to feel the varied emotions of fear and courage, aggression and surrender, anger and calmness, and many others. Learning will come from experiencing all these through friends.

    Having friends also teaches children the appropriateness of specific behaviour under specific circumstances. Different situations call for different reactions. Although differentiating between good and bad is expected to be learned first from the family, friendships make them clearer yet more challenging.

    Friends will also be a big part in decisions made and children will discover that their friends' decision usually influence their own. The bearing of peer's views cannot be underestimated. Respect and understanding for the views of others is usually the foundation of long-term friendships.

    The most obvious benefit of friendship is companionship. Having a trusted confidante who is expected to stand by through thick or thin gives people more confidence and courage to pursue goals and objectives. Friends provide inspiration and stimulation to do better while providing the mechanism to go through troubling times.

    People can be prone to loneliness at times when friends cannot be physically present to provide support and encouraging words. Hearing words of comfort and encouragement sometimes is the only difference between surviving and surrendering. In purposes like this, a friend who is always ready to lend an ear or offer a shoulder to cry on is very valuable.

    Young children prefer playing and interacting with other children who have the same interests as them. Given the many intricacies of friendship, children can benefit from understanding it from the point of view of playing. This can give them an idea of what to expect in friendship.

    The iPal virtual friend app allows children to create their friends as they imagine and want them to be. It is actually a fun way of determining what kind of friends a child hopes to have. The app provides control in the physical features, characteristics, and behaviour of the virtual friend.

    What's more? It can be created using only a single device - a smartphone. With the use of any among the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad, the iPal virtual friend will appear as indicated in no time. The app requires iOS 6.0 or later version and is optimized for iPhone 5.

    Language is not a problem since the app is offered in several languages including English, Bokmal, Norwegian, Catalan, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish, Traditional Chinese, Turkish. Children will not find it hard to convince their parents to get the app for them. It is available worldwide for $0.99 exclusively through App Store in the Entertainment Category.

    The iPal virtual friend is especially appealing to children since it reaches out to their rich sense of imagination. They will never be wanting of friends to play with as an iPal virtual friend is ready to play several rounds of tic-tac-toe and checkers anytime, anywhere. It can share jokes and funny stories just like a real friend would.

    Like a true friend, the iPal virtual friend will send reminders of things that need to be done. It can also make calls and offer timely and informative advices. Just like a friend who remembers special occasions, it will send greetings during the most important events in a child's life.

    Of what value therefore does an iPal virtual friend have knowing that a child will sooner or later face interacting with real friends? A lot, when it comes to allowing a child to be a child. A child needs to play in the same way that he or she needs a friend. He or she can have both through an iPal virtual friend.

    Laguna Hills, CA, July 13, 2013 --( SpotSync LLC, based in Laguna Hills, Calif., has announced the release of a new corporate video that illustrates how the online point of sale (POS), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application works. SpotSync Checkout tracks sales, manages inventory and enhances customer service by giving franchise owners reports about what products are selling and what customers really desire.

    While SpotSync Checkout works great for single mom and pop shops, the true potential of the software emerges when used in a franchise environment. The entire application is less than 7MB so, by just browsing to the site, the user has cached the entire application and can now run it while offline. Even though SpotSync Checkout is a browser-based application, it still communicates with legacy hardware and new peripherals. The most important differentiator of SpotSync Checkout is the synchronous conferencing ability of the software, or the push technology. While online, any changes that are made are instantly pushed to the server and broadcast to all connected clients (registers) that are a part of the same group. For example, let’s imagine that a franchise with 1,000 locations, with three registers at each location, needs to update the menu with a new product. The menu can be updated with the new product at one location and, within milliseconds, the product change will automatically update across all registers at all locations. Any registers that were offline will automatically sync when connected again, and will update with the new product information.

    Key product features of SpotSync Checkout are:

    Data Backup

    All of the data that each location generates is pushed up to the SpotSync “cloud.”


    SpotSync Checkout encrypts sensitive data like passwords and all data that is passed to and from the client, using SSL 256-bit encryption.

    VISA, MasterCard, American Express (AMEX), Discover, Debit, Gift Cards....

    SpotSync Checkout has partnered with Mercury Payment Systems to provide customers with quick, efficient and reliable service. SpotSync Checkout supports pre-authorization, partial authorization, voids, returns and more.

    PCI Compliance

    SpotSync Checkout takes advantage of Mercury's E2E™ (end-to-end encryption) in order to eliminate PCI protection requirements. By instantly encrypting swiped or manually keyed card data, information that is skimmed by malware is rendered useless because it can only be decrypted by Mercury.

    Works Online & Offline

    All data is being stored locally so changes that users make inside of the system are being pushed up to the cloud and then sent back down to other registers in real-time.

    Green Solution

    Every time a customer needs to print, a paper-free alternative, such as emailing, sharing, or exporting, will be presented.

    Computers & Tablets

    SpotSync Checkout was built using HTML5 technologies, which means that the same application can be run on all operating systems using Google Chrome or Apple Safari. This includes Apple iOS and Android based tablets.

    New Features

    SpotSync Checkout allows customers to use the latest features, without the hassle of maintenance and upgrades, for a small monthly subscription.

    About SpotSync LLC
    SpotSync LLC was established in Laguna Hills, Calif. to provide an innovative online, touch-enabled Point of Sale (POS) and inventory management Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution for multi-store retail, quick service and restaurant franchises. SpotSync Checkout lets franchises stay ahead of the competition by managing products and inventory, improving customer service and increasing profitability through real-time sales and performance reports.

    Ashburn, VA, July 13, 2013 --( The IJIS Institute—a nonprofit organization that focuses on mission-critical information sharing for justice, public safety, and homeland security—is pleased to announce the third edition of the Pre-RFP Toolkit. The Toolkit is available from the IJIS Institute website at no charge and is intended to assist the practitioner community in planning for successful justice information system integration.

    As with previous editions, the Toolkit was developed using a technical assistance (TA) grant from the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA). The request to update the Toolkit was made by the Justice Information Sharing Practitioners (JISP) Steering Committee in order to reflect recent advancements in information sharing standards and policy. The JISP Steering Committee members also served in an advisory capacity to oversee the revisions made in this third edition.

    The Toolkit now includes information regarding DOJ’s Global Standards Package (GSP), which represents the consensus information sharing implementation approach of DOJ’s Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative (Global). The GSP includes tools for establishing data standards, messaging architectures, security, and federated access control, as well as preserving privacy and civil liberties. Understanding how to incorporate the GSP into system requirements and procurement actions is critical for justice agencies to be able to verify that their information systems are able to share data when needed.

    In addition to the new requirement for grantees to use Global standards, the third edition of the Pre-RFP Toolkit provides updated reference materials and useful links, and refreshes standards and models that have evolved since the prior edition. It also provides guidance in several areas critical to pre-procurement planning and readiness assessment, ranging from defining integrated justice goals for state and local government, to assessing project support and governance, to developing strategic plans and project requirements. The Pre-RFP Toolkit contains links to key resources, tools, templates, and examples from seasoned practitioners and service providers experienced in the procurement process and who have implemented successful justice information sharing systems. In making these additions, the contents of the Toolkit were also reorganized to more closely align with the typical pre-procurement planning process employed by justice organizations.

    Steve Ambrosini, executive director of the IJIS Institute said, “We are pleased to have been able to update and enhance this valuable procurement tool. The revisions to the toolkit will make this edition an even more valuable resource to enhance justice information sharing efforts across the country.”

    HOUSTON, TX, July 13, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Repurposing is a very green way of making new use of something after it's completed its original mission. With this in mind, NASA decided to continue to support and expand the use of the International Space Station's Hyperspectral Imager for the Coastal Ocean (HICO) instrument, which completed its original mission in orbit last year.

    HICO is an imaging instrument that sees beyond the colored wavelengths of light that are visible to the human eye. HICO observes the Earth in the visible and near infrared wavelengths, and the instrument can produce select, highly-detailed (90m resolution) images for research and management of terrestrial and aquatic environments.

    The HICO mission was sponsored by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the Department of Defense (DoD) Space Test Program, and the sensor was designed, built and is operated by the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL). The instrument was originally a technology demonstration to create an affordable hyperspectral sensor that could be deployed swiftly to the space station to obtain environmental information in the coastal regions.

    HICO now is meeting new, unanticipated needs. For instance, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) already has tapped HICO as a resource to gauge coastal water quality. The data from HICO also may be incorporated into a related smartphone app in the future. As new users expand the instrument's purpose, the possibilities of new applications of HICO data grow.

    HICO's funding through ONR ended in December 2012, at which point NASA began funding the instrument operations. Current users can still submit proposals through the HICO website. The process for new users and data collection proposals is being finalized and details will be forthcoming in Summer 2013.

    To maximize and prioritize scientific and commercial use of the sensor, new proposals for HICO data collection will be submitted through the HICO website, but will be vetted in a coordinated fashion with the International Space Station Program, NASA's Science Mission Directorate, the HICO project scientist, and the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS). Oregon State University, where the project scientist resides, manages the HICO website, and NRL operates the sensor itself.

    "Finding novel uses--both research and applied--for datasets or extracting new information from them is a natural activity within the physical science and remote sensing communities," said William Stefanov, Ph.D., senior remote sensing specialist with NASA's International Space Station Program Science Office. "At present and for the immediate future, new users can propose to become HICO 'taskers' through the existing application interface."

    Materials in the ocean, such as algae, have a "light signature" as constituents in the water absorb and scatter solar energy or radiation at unique wavelengths. Scientists and managers can use information from HICO to detail the biological and chemical signatures of aquatic and terrestrial materials, which helps them to answer research questions about the oceans and the Earth. When HICO scans an area selected by a user, the sensor can reveal things invisible to the human eye, such as chemical compounds or the presence of microscopic sea life.

    "The instrument is particularly well-suited to looking at plant chemistry, water chemistry and water quality (such as the EPA work), but it might also be useful for looking at coastal land areas under the right conditions for soil mineralogy, plant stress and land cover classification," said Stefanov. "At a base level, the data could conceivably be used for any kind of spectral analysis appropriate to its sensor design, wavelength range and spatial resolution characteristics."

    Although the instrument has completed its primary mission of collecting coastal ocean data for civilian and naval research, it still is in excellent condition. As such, NASA's space station program decided to maintain operations from HICO's perch on the Japanese Experiment Module Exposed Facility aboard the orbiting outpost.

    NRL will release historical HICO data for scientific use. This information, along with data gathered beginning January 1, 2013 forward, will be available to users to access via the Ocean Color website, managed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. NASA, in conjunction with its HICO partners, is developing user approval and data distribution processes to meet the needs of what likely will be a growing set of users.

    "The thought is that by making the HICO data publically available, it will not only expand the user base and help develop the science and applications of hyperspectral data in general, but it also will demonstrate the usefulness of the station as a platform for such data collection and justify continued sensor development and deployment," said Stefanov.

    HICO also serves as a participant in the United Nations International Charter for Space and Major Disasters response efforts. When the charter puts out a call for imagery of areas impacted by natural disasters, HICO and the other orbital observation instruments collect data on a "best-effort" basis. These images and data are available online for organizations in compromised regions to share with responders on the ground for the production of near real-time maps and other resource aids.

    Neptune Beach, FL, July 13, 2013 --( SourceFuse, a leading digital product and software development company, announced today that it has secured $500,000 in funding from a private investor for the launch of PowerUp, a new Digital Product Team Service targeting media, brands, healthcare and eCommerce startups and corporations.

    PowerUp makes it easy to quickly assemble a responsive and experienced digital product team with a history of delivering superior products on time and under budget. It features proven experience, agile management techniques, superior communications planning and time-zone advantage. “PowerUp teams can build high quality digital products at half the investment and a fraction of the time it would take to assemble and manage your own team,” said Kelly Dyer, founder and CEO at SourceFuse.

    Unlike many digital agencies and software development companies, SourceFuse is led by digital entrepreneurs who have themselves successfully built and grown digital products and businesses.

    “We have been through the startup and corporate product development phase as owners, developers, marketers and executives,” said Dyer. “Our experience is real and hands-on. We understand agile and smart planning, cashflow challenges, investor and stakeholder expectations, communications, and the need for speed to reduce risk and boost ROI.
