Online kids channel Toon Goggles, the innovative free portal that provides valuable viewing data to content producers, has teamed up with KIDO'Z , the experts in turning computers & mobile devices into safe environments for children to play with and learn through.

They are proud to announce that this collaboration will allow kids to watch an unlimited library of child and parent friendly animations, features, clips and programs, whilst they stay in the protected environment that the KIDO'Z platform provides.

"KIDO'Z content strategy was always to bring our users the best kids' content out there", said Gai Havkin, CEO of KIDO'Z. "Joining forces with Toon Goggles, and enabling its great multilingual cartoon library on the KIDO'Z platform is a great addition of fun & safe content for our global community".

"We at Toon Goggles believe that children should have access to safe programming and through a safe portal," said Stephen L. Hodge, Managing Director, Toon Goggles. "KIDO'Z has been a pioneer in this field for some time now and it was natural that we would join together to ensure that children are provided with entertaining and enriching content within a safe and protected environment.

Now available to download for free in the KIDO'Z App Store, the Toon Goggles app includes 100's of videos that have been divided into six categories; girl, boy, comedy, action, pre-school, and educational. This partnership means that KIDO'Z now has even more entertainment options available to put at the fingertips of children!

MAGnificent Signs Partners With Vantage LED to Provide High Quality LED Signs to the Entire Inland Northwest


Spokane, WA (PRWEB) July 11, 2012

Michael Glen has been in the sign business for close to 25 years. The first 17 were spent helping to grow a small 5 person company he worked for into a multi-million dollar sign organization. After experiencing a significant drop in reliability and production times, he realized a change was needed.

The quality was dropping and the promised install dates were not being met...[The] decline in those areas adversely affected my working relationship with my clients. he said. So I started a company that meets the needs of my clients while getting them the best quality for the best price.

In January 2005, MAGnificent Signs opened for business promising high quality signs and service to the Inland Northwest and Northern Idaho. Now, 7 years later having grown a substantial customer base, they are a major resource for business, commercial and LED electronic display signage in the area offering surveys, design, permitting, installation and project management. They have supplied Spokane Teachers Credit Union with signage for many years, finishing a new LED sign at the Newport, WA branch in March. According to Mr. Glen, professionalism, timely completion, product quality, and unbeatable pricing are what set them apart from the rest of the pack.

We try to live by the Golden Rule and treat everyone as we would like to be treated; with care and respect he said.

Integrating LED signs into projects is a familiar process to Mr. Glen. He has gained a great deal of experience with a variety of manufacturers over the past 24 years. Unfortunately, the sign industry in general is not known for quality support; a fact not easily overlooked by Mr. Glen who has experienced this first hand with more than one manufacturer.

Often you will call into tech support and the phone just rings and rings, he said sometimes its impossible to get a hold of anyone quickly.

Early last year, he was contacted by Vantage LED, a US based LED sign manufacturer in Corona, CA. He was impressed with the professional approach taken by the sales representative and their commitment to a quality product.

After discussing the way [they] build the displays in southern California with only the best LEDs, high wattage power supplies, solid state controllers and ease of installation, it was an easy decision. he said.

He does not regret this decision and has been pleased with the results thus far. The quality is exactly where I want it to be, he said the displays come from the factory pre-configured so that the installation takes a couple of hours; less time than the previous vendors displays, and the support staff is great

Vantage recently revamped their website and introduced a new Powered by Vantage program, focusing on providing more resources to support dealers and partners including white papers, revised manuals, documentation, sales tools and co-branded brochures. Mr. Glen has taken full advantage of these resources and is proud to use them on both his website and Facebook page.

Their goal [is] to do everything in their power to make their dealers as successful as they can while building a long term business relationship with them. he said.

Supporting LED signs can be a challenge, even for large companies. Anything a manufacturer can do to facilitate quality support will benefit both the end user and dealer. Mr. Glen is impressed with Vantages approach to these challenges, especially with their LightSpeed sign control software.

By incorporating the creation programming and the scheduling into one software program, [they have] simplified the learning process for the client as well as saving them time. he said.

Overall, Mr. Glen is very happy with the partnership and looks forward to working with Vantage to continue to provide some of the best signage in the northwest.

I've worked with several EMC manufacturers over the 24 years in this industry and I can honestly say that Vantage LED has been the best to work with. he said. Quality people, quality products and quality support make for an extremely magnificent company!

New Online Marketplace Launches to Provide Webmasters with Quality Content from College Students


Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) June 27, 2012

College Copywriters, a South Florida-based startup company, has launched a Beta version of its online marketplace that pairs webmasters, web developers, marketers and business owners in need of quality and affordable online content with students from some of the nations top colleges and universities.

Founders Brian Diener and Chris Smiles, college sophomores at Emory University and Harvard University respectively, have been working on the business since the Fall of 2011, growing their network of writers at their own colleges, as well as other schools, including Columbia, Yale, NYU and Vanderbilt.

CollegeCopywriters.com offers quality and unique content for as little as $ .02 per word. For those looking to order content, they have the option of choosing content based on three levels of quality A-minus, A and A-plus, with writers earning an average of $ 10-$ 20 an hour. Writers are vetted through a comprehensive writing test that is evaluated by the teams lead editor.

After Googles recent Penguin update, webmasters and site developers have been stranded, forced to make a difficult decision write hundreds of articles on their own or order from other content providers, ultimately sacrificing quality, Diener said. Todays tech-savvy college students many of whom struggle to balance school with part-time employment are perfect for the job, since they prefer to work in their spare time and are eager to put their skills to use.

Diener, a varsity athlete at Emory University, has been nationally recognized for his online entrepreneurial successes by Go Daddy, as well as the National Federation of Small Businesses. His blog, TeenDomainer.com, chronicles his entrepreneurial efforts dating back to 2009.

Smiles registered a perfect score on his SAT and was Valedictorian of his senior class at Boca Ratons St. Andrews High School. He purposely enrolled in an introductory computer science class during his freshman year at Harvard to build CollegeCopywriters.com.

We bought the domain name CollegeCopyWriters.com in the Summer of 2011, Diener said. Our initial test was so successful that we stopped accepting new writers until the site was live.

As an added feature, the two hope that their service will help writers utilize relationships with publishers to build their professional resumes, which could lead to job placements as they enter the workforce beyond college.

CollegeCopywriters.com is a new online marketplace where marketers, webmasters, business owners and website developers can order quality, unique content from students attending the nations leading colleges and universities.

WSI Partners with Cell Journalist to Provide New Tool for TruVu Max and WeatherActive Suite


Andover, MA (PRWEB) April 04, 2012

WSI (Weather Services International) today announced that it had integrated Cell Journalists mobile application into WSI TruVu Max and WSI WeatherActive Mobile suite of applications (for iPad2 iPhone and Android). The Cell Journalist program provides a fast and simple way to share user-generated content (UGC) from mobile devices to station web sites and digital systems.

WSI will be demonstrating the application at the WSI Booth #SL6313, Hall S1, at the 2012 NAB Show, Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, April 16-19.

To view how the application works go to http://wsi.wistia.com/m/Pj3WLo (2:58).

As the leading provider of superior weather data and graphics systems for the majority of US broadcast and cable networks, WSI now also makes it very easy for viewers to contribute pictures and videos to their local stations in seconds. The new capability within TruVu Max also provides a rapid, organized means for broadcast meteorologists to incorporate new, local content and breaking weather news onto station web sites and into weather broadcasts without having to exit the TruVu application.

The Cell Journalist implementation enables us to air new photos from viewers every day, increasing our station-viewer engagement, said Debbie Bush, VP and GM, KOLD-TV Tucson. It also provides us with easy access to more content flowing into the station and the ability to get breaking weather pictures and videos on the air very quickly.

How It Works

Using Cell Journalist, viewers can upload new or archived photos and videos to a station in seconds. From their iPad2, IPhone or Android devices, viewers can access their local stations weather application, scroll to the submit section, open a short fill-in window and hit submit. Within seconds, their data is uploaded to a file within the WSI TruVu Max application. Broadcasters can then access the uploaded picture or video file from within TruVu Max and move the content to the stations viewer gallery and/or drag it into the queue for on-air use.

The Cell Journalist tool offers an effortless and immediate solution for both viewers and broadcasters. When a viewer wants to share a weather-related picture or video, it's a quick select and submit process from his or her mobile device. Theres no need to use a home computer for a station submission, said Bill Dow Vice President and General Manger of WSIs Media Division. For TruVu Max broadcasters, Cell Journalist provides easy access to a greater number of potentially compelling photos/videos for broadcast and an additional monetization tool. The Cell Journalist program workflow makes it easy to get viewer-generated, urgent weather photos and videos on air, even under the tightest of deadlines.

Combining Cell Journalist capabilities with WSIs world-class weather applications will help stations add more local content to their web sites and be more competitive by telling a better, timelier, weather story on air, said Parker Polidor, Cell Journalist CEO. The Cell Journalist-WSI partnership is truly a winning solution for broadcasters. We, at Cell Journalist, are thrilled to be working with WSI.

Baird said, Feedback Revolution QR is a very powerful tool that is simple to use. The challenge is to get businesses to find out about it. He also added, We knew that we needed to find an SEO partner that can make us stand out in the internet clutter.

When we first saw the customer satisfaction survey tool they created we were shocked by how simple and powerful it was, said Terry Mickelson, Chief Digital Officer for Pageviews. He continued, Weve all seen traditional comment cards. Even the receipts that say call and tell us how we did. Feedback Revolution QR really does revolutionize customer feedback.

"The customer feedback and customer satisfaction survey space is crowded on the internet. Its not going to be easy getting them on the first page of search engines, but if it was easy anyone could do it, commented Mickelson.

EnovateIT Embraces Ergotron StyleView Carts and Incorporates Vital Signs Monitoring System to Provide Full Bedside Diagnostics

EnovateIT Embraces Ergotron StyleView Carts and Incorporates Vital Signs Monitoring System to Provide Full Bedside Diagnostics










St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) March 1, 2006

EnovateIT, sourcing and integration expert for mobile healthcare computing applications, is partnering with Ergotron, the global leader in computing and visual display mounting equipment, to deliver StyleView™ Carts to the point-of-care. EnovateIT will enhance the StyleView solution with a Welch Allyn Vital Signs monitoring system for bedside patient diagnostics.

The vital signs monitoring system will attach to the back of Ergotron’s StyleView Carts, creating one workstation with multiple efficiencies for ultimate patient care. This solution will enable healthcare professionals to bring full diagnostics to the patient bedside while eliminating the need for a separate cart. Additionally, combining a vital sign monitoring system with the open architecture of the StyleView Cart further reduces the total cost of ownership. The integrated cart, provided by EnovateIT, will be the first cart to bring a vital signs monitoring system to the point-of-care with the ability to support future hardware upgrades.

“Our customers need integrated solutions -- improving efficiency and productivity of their clinicians, and greatly minimizing costly and serious data entry errors through electronic medical record (EMR) technology. It was a logical decision to marry the leading point-of-care cart, Ergotron’s StyleView, with the market leading vital signs monitors from Welch Allyn,” said Ron Sgro, President and Co-Founder of EnovateIT. “This compelling solution offers an open architecture technology choice previously unavailable in the market.”

Ergonomically designed with input from nurses and healthcare IT professionals, Ergotron’s line of StyleView Carts bring Constant Force (CF™) patented motion technology to healthcare mobile computing. CF technology provides smooth one-touch vertical motion. Nurses, doctors or other healthcare workers can adjust the StyleView workstation 20 inches straight up and down, ensuring comfortable, ergonomic data entry whether sitting or standing. The cart’s small 18" x 18" footprint allows users to fit a complete system in space-constrained areas.

“EnovateIT acknowledges the value in what Ergotron does for point-of-care in healthcare facilities” stated Steve Reinecke, Director of Healthcare for Ergotron. “Our strong relationship will have a positive impact on the healthcare industry now and as point-of-care technology requirements change in the future.”

In addition to the StyleView, EnovateIT will continue to sell Ergotron’s disruptively priced wall mounts and desk stands to enhance computing throughout healthcare facilities.
