Tapcentive Extends Mobile Platform Capabilities with First of its Kind NFC/BLE Devices for the Next Generation of In-Location Engagement
by BWW News Desk - Sep 8, 2014

Unlike beacon-only solutions that are hidden and rely on chance encounters with consumers via push-based messaging and engagement, consumers “tap” Touchpoints to receive intelligently designed incentives that can be wrapped in gamifying experiences. “Broadcasting unsolicited content to consumers' mobile devices without any visual or tangible tie-in leaves engagement 'to chance' and risks brand damage for those customers who want to remain in control of their shopping or venue-based experiences,” said Dave Wentker, CEO of Tapcentive. “Tapcentive is built around visible technology that marketers can brand and customers can see, understand, and choose to engage with. Using Tapcentive, marketing campaigns can provide customers with a clear call-to-action that is simple to understand, for example, “Visit our locations and Tap in here for rewards.”” (more...)

by Patrick Brassell - Sep 7, 2014

Munched Kitty Publications Announces Debut
by BWW News Desk - Sep 28, 2014

'It's exciting!' Michele Barszcz can hardly contain her excitement. 'I have always loved reading, and now I'm actually publishing books that I like. It's a lot of hard work, but I love it.' So says the founder of the latest small publishing house to hit the markets, with unbound enthusiasm. Once upon a time, such a fairy tale would have been impossible, as giant publishing conglomerates fortified their castles with alligator-filled moats and high walls that were virtually impenetrable. Back then, if Michele had been really lucky, she might have gotten a job plowing through 'slush piles' of unsolicited submissions for a few years to prove herself worthy of a higher position, but she would most likely have remained a cog in the publishing house bureaucracy forever. With the rise of computers, advancements in printing, and numerous companies offering direct marketing services, however, small entrepreneurs like Michele can turn their publishing dreams into reality. It was just as difficult for authors, if not worse, in the old days. After possibly spending an eternity writing, editing, proofreading and polishing a cherished masterpiece, authors often languished for years trying to claw their way through the fortress barriers, often spending months to find an agent and even longer to convince a mega-house to begrudgingly deign to read their manuscript. Since first-time submissions from unknown authors are rarely accepted on the first try, the cycle of submission-rejection-submission tends to repeat itself Over and Over. Acclaimed author John Grisham was one of those rejected repeatedly. Before Harry Potter became a worldwide sensation and a series of blockbuster movies, more than a dozen publishers rejected the book and its unknown author. At the time, they all said, 'J.K. Rowling? Who is that?' Now those publishers all know who she is, but only long after passing on the chance to cash in by publishing her works. The marriage of technology and creativity has proven to be a heavenly union for small publishers and authors alike. Many authors have made fortunes self-publishing after others rejected their work, but some things remain constant. A book still must be good to sell, no matter who publishes it. And a golden opportunity doesn't guarantee a golden outcome. The old moat and drawbridge were there for a reason. Without them, there is nothing to keep the barbarian hoards from storming the castle, and the market is now filled with substandard, poorly written garbage published out of some yokel's basement, making it harder for a true masterpiece to rise above the refuse. Michele sees it this way, 'Even with all the technology, it's still critical to find the right books to publish. Books that people will want to buy.' So what can readers expect from Munched Kitty? If the house's first two books are any indication, quite a variety. The first book scheduled for publication is "Judging Professional MMA," by Mixed Martial Arts judge, Glenn Trowbridge. The following act is a comedy horror love story by veteran Joseph Tatner called, "Floyd and Mikki: Zombie Hunters." Glenn has never written a book before, while Joseph has made his living as a writer for more than 20 years. Michele sees a solid market for both books, and that is what drives her decisions on what to publish. Despite the obvious goal of making money, Michele isn't greedy about it. In fact, she is on a mission to keep books affordable. '$19.95 for a paperback is ridiculous, not matter how good it is,' she opines. 'With the cost of everything going up, people want to escape their troubles in a good book. My goal is to keep it affordable for them. If we can sell books at a lower price, we will make about the same money, but we'll reach more people and build brand loyalty. You can't put a price on that.' Just who is the Munched Kitty in the logo? Munch is a happy survivor. She was abandoned and then rescued off the streets of Las Vegas. Her mangled left ear and missing half of a right fang weren't the only things munched when she showed up. The frail feline had a large patch of skin missing from the back of her neck. Fortunately, tender loving care by her adopted family brought her back to full health. 'I couldn't think of a catchy publishing name that wasn't taken. Then I decided to name the company after Munch. After all, she's living proof that you can succeed against all odds.' No doubt Michele will succeed as well, one way or the other. Munched Kitty Publications (mkpubs.com) is a little publishing house with big ambitions and grand hopes. (more...)

Wipebook - The Popular Dry-Erase Notebook - Now Available Through OnTheHub at Exclusive Academic Pricing
by BWW News Desk - Sep 16, 2014

OTTAWA, Sept. 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) Taking notes in class just got a lot easier for students in Canada and the U.S. with the introduction today of the revolutionary Wipebook™ notebook on the OnTheHub™ eStore and network of school-branded web stores powered by Kivuto Solutions Inc., the world's leading provider of hosted, flexible and scalable solutions for complex digital distribution requirements. Designed to combine traditional notebooks and whiteboards, Wipebook blends the capabilities of both in a compact, Proclick-bound collection of removable, specially-coated, erasable sheets on which users can write notes, plot charts, draw graphics, or compose music with correctable markers. All notes can be easily wiped away when they are no longer needed, so the sheets can be reused Over and Over again. 'Wipebook alleviates the frustration most students have with conventional writing tools,' said Frank Bouchard, Wipebook co-founder. 'Pencils offer the opportunity to erase mistakes, but often leave a mess on the page. Pens offer smooth writing and a variety of color options, but are not the right choice when you don't want your ideas or notes to be permanent. Whiteboards offer the best of both, but they are not portable. So we created Wipebook to provide users with the whiteboard experience, but in a format that they can take with them and that can be saved for future reference without smudging. And when you no longer need the notes, you just erase the page you don't want and reuse it. It's a great tool and we are now offering it at a special academic price available only through OnTheHub.' Available now to eligible students, faculty, and staff in Canada and the U.S. at $22.99 (savings of close to 40% off retail), Wipebook can be purchased in lined, grid, blank or music page variants, and is shipped with one black correctable pen. 'Anyone who is into design, wire framing, sketching, doodling, ideation, diagraming and simply writing ideas down rather than typing them will appreciate this new and innovative notebook. We are happy to welcome the Wipebook team aboard and be able to bring this special offer to the academic community via OnTheHub' said Gustavo Sanchez, Director of Marketing. About Wipebook Wipebook co-founders Frank Bouchard, Toby Maurice and Thomas Sychterz met in an entrepreneurship class during their Masters in Engineering at the University of Ottawa in February 2013. After some success with the original version of Wipebook, the trio decided to launch a crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter in November/December 2013 to finance production of a new and improved version. Within 30 days, sales exceeded $420,000, more than 1000 percent of their initial $4000 goal. About Kivuto Kivuto Solutions is the world's leading provider of advanced digital distribution and management solutions that enable the secure delivery of digital goods to individuals, businesses, and organizations anywhere in the world. Kivuto simplifies the process of delivering any digital good to any market under virtually any terms and conditions.

Florian Westermann Presents MAGIC PLACES Photography Exhibit, 9/10
by BWW News Desk - Aug 31, 2014

His passion is to discover and capture the breathtaking spectacle of landscape and light, wherever on earth he may find it. Being in the middle of nature, which has changed little in thousands of years and where one wishes that time would stop while looking at the scenery in awe, is for him an unbelievable wealth that he wants to share. It is to these magical places that Florian Westermann wants to lead the viewer emotionally and communicate their beauty, grandeur and drama. He wants to show that the unbelievable is reality and is really there. Florian Westermann (b. 1980), grew up in West Berlin and witnessed firsthand the fall of the wall. Reunification and the city as a rapidly changing melting pot influenced his childhood and youth. Already in this context, he developed a very strong interest in photography. The city offered him an inexhaustible wealth of inspiration and motives. However, he soon discovered his special predilection for nature photos. After leaving school, he started his career as a business journalist in 1999. On numerous journeys, he also had the opportunity to devote himself to landscape photography and to discover new, fascinating places Over and Over again. Over many years, he managed to teach himself the knowledge that he needed as a photographer. Passion was just as key to his success as his willingness to spare neither expense nor effort in search of the best moments of nature. He realized almost nothing brings people together in the way photography does. For Florian Westermann, it is a universal form of expression that appeals to people very directly in a rational and an emotional way. With the exhibition 'Magical Places' at 'art place berlin', he exhibits works of recent years to a wider audience in Berlin for the first time. Forty-five high-quality large-formats show impressive motifs from the cities of New York and San Francisco, the vastness of the American Southwest, the paradise islands of the Seychelles, and motifs from Europe such as the German and Swiss Alps or the Mediterranean island of Sicily. 'Photography is a fire that burns inside my heart and will not let me go. In pristine nature, I find something that is larger and more important than ourselves' - Florian Westermann. Since 2014, he lives and works in Munich. 'art place berlin' is the forum for contemporary art and intercultural projects at the Park Inn by Radisson Berlin-Alexanderplatz. It offers the opportunity to encounter current international art to over 30,000 monthly guests and visitors. The changing exhibitions show artistic positions in painting, photography, and works on paper. The exhibitions can be visited daily from 9 am - 9 pm with free admission on the ground floor and the 1st floor. Today, 'art place berlin' looks back on 5 years of successful collaboration with artists, curators, and institutions. From the beginning, it could be trusted in the rich experience of organizing more than 100 high-profile exhibitions, which were shown in the former Art Center Berlin Friedrichstrasse from 2005 to 2010. art place berlin - forum for contemporary art in the Park Inn by Radisson Berlin Alexanderplatz since 2009 Alexanderplatz 7 / Park Inn, 10178 Berlin, Germany (more...)
