Wingit gets the party started in London and Tel Aviv

Coline BORDET - 26-févr.-2014 13:46:40

Wingit, the mobile application that enables users to pinpoint events happening in real time around them, has expanded to London (UK) and Tel Aviv (Israel), after its successful launch in New York (USA) in late 2012. The new 2.3 version of the geo-social app, which has been fully redesigned to include streamlined navigation and a sleek iOS7 design, is free to download from the App Store.   Wingit’s founder and CEO Alban Sayag says: “Wingit is a mobile app that enables people to organize great last-minute get-togethers with their friends. It finds the user’s location and scans social networks in real time in order to push information about the coolest events happening in and around their current location. It can be anything from a street concert or an art demonstration to a party in a club.”   Wingit stands out from other geolocation applications on the market thanks to its powerful proprietary algorithm, which is used to cross-reference the user’s current position with millions of pieces of information collected from social networks (such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) in order to find the most exciting and inspiring events taking place nearby, or about to take place in the neighbourhood where the person happens to be.   The events Wingit picks up can, for instance, consist of a jazz concert at a nearby bar, or the preview of an art exhibition open to the public at an art gallery in the next street, or a show by a stand-up comedian that would be about to start in a pub a few hundred yards away from where the user and his (or her) friends are.   It should be stressed that the app is free from advertising and pushes only relevant information with regard to the user’s current time and immediate position, avoiding unnecessary spam.   Alban Sayag explains: “The purpose of Wingit is not to create a new social network, but a social-networking platform whose main functionality is to find content and share it with others. It is easy to discover if friends are nearby, tell them about a cool event, and invite them to come along. Users can also create their own event and post it on the timeline. Wingit users never miss a great occasion to have fun!”   Having worked for several years in the IT sector, Alban Sayag came up with the idea for Wingit and started to create and develop the app and its algorithm with a group of developers in India. In September 2012, Wingit was launched as a pilot project in New York (USA). The application was rolled out over several districts including Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan and, once it had gained a sufficiently large audience, the company’s founders were able to secure significant Series A funding to grow the business.   Thanks to $1.1million worth of funding from solid investors – including venture capitalists, business angels and banks – Wingit has the means to expand and adapt its content to a number of cities around the world. London and Tel Aviv were added at the end of 2013 and dozens of others, including Paris, are expected to be incorporated in 2014.   Wingit can be downloaded for free from the App Store, where it has recently been featured in the What’s Hot – Social Networking section, and will be available on the Android platform in the second half of 2014.   About Wingit   Wingit is a free mobile application that enables users to find events that are currently (or soon to be) happening around them. Its powerful proprietary algorithm screens the main social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) to find up-to-date information on cultural and other events. This information is then cross-referenced with the current location of the user and notifications of nearby events are pushed to the mobile device.   Wingit was launched in New York (USA) by CEO Alban Sayag in 2012. It is now being rolled out in London (UK) and in Tel Aviv (Israel), and is due to expand to a number of other cities during 2014, including Paris (France).   Wingit is free to download from the App Store and will be available on Android platforms towards the end 2014.   To view Wingit’s short introductory video-clip, please go to: https://vimeo.com/86883287   For further information about the company, please go to: www.wingit.so     For further information, please contact :    Quote ref. : FTPB3917 Ms Kate RILEY - Press Officer UBIFRANCE Press Office in London Tel: +44 (0) 207 024 3640 kate.riley@ubifrance.fr View other press releases at : http://www.ubifrance.com/uk/

Lyon weathers economic storm to post positive results for 2013

Coline BORDET - 10-févr.-2014 15:39:35

In contrast with the economic environment in the rest of France, marked by reduced levels of foreign investment, ADERLY-Invest in Lyon, the Lyon Area Economic Development Agency, is releasing an upbeat 2013 end-of-year report this week, showing even better results for the region than in previous years. This performance demonstrates the resilience of France’s metropolitan areas, with Lyon setting the example.   With 77 new companies setting up across the region in 2013 and 1,825 jobs to be created in the next three years, ADERLY, the development agency for Lyon and its surrounding area, has exceeded its goals: indeed, in 2013, the economy of the Lyon region performed better than in previous years, despite particularly tough competition and a strained economic climate across much of France and the Eurozone.   The year 2013 saw a sharp slowdown in foreign direct investment (FDI) in France, confirmed by numerous economic indicators and international reports: in 2013, FDI, in France, fell to $5.7 billion, in value, down 77% on 2012, according to early estimates by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).   Lyon did not entirely escape the recession, which affected several projects handled by ADERLY. This can be seen in certain key indicators in the report. Two strong trends were noted: the smaller size of projects and the growing presence of investors closer to home. Out of the 77 new company set-ups, 55% were backed by foreign capital, compared with 65% in previous years.   Among the foreign investors, ADERLY noted lower investment flows coming from the USA, but higher levels of investment originating in neighbouring countries — Belgium and Switzerland, in particular, with eight and four projects respectively. Levels of Asian investment remained stable.   In this context, Lyon was able to maintain strong results in terms of attractiveness: the ADERLY teams made the necessary adjustments in their approach to prospecting, which brought in a 60% rise in new projects, by highlighting the structural advantages of the Lyon urban area to best meet the needs of investors.   Lyon used its strengths in specialized areas in order to focus its prospecting activity on sectors of excellence, on projects with high value in terms of innovation, and on the advanced-services sector. The 77 new projects already mentioned include 30 in the green-tech sector — an area that is a stated priority for local authorities — the setting-up of 10 R&D centres and the launch of 27 decision-making centres.   In 2013, Lyon’s strong fundamentals helped offset a weak national economic environment, which has been decried publicly by 50 large foreign-based investors with business interests and operations within France. [See article published in French business daily Les Echos in December 2013 under the headline: 50 entreprises étrangères installées en France tirent la sonnette d’alarme, i.e. 50 foreign companies with a presence in France sound the alarm.]   Lyon’s location, its vibrant economy and, especially, its leading position in key sectors and major urban-renewal projects have helped make the metropolitan area and its region a preferred alternative to Paris. The local dynamics can also be seen in the volume of real-estate uptake for business premises in the Greater Lyon area in 2013, and in local development projects recently announced by major companies already present in the region, such as Sanofi and Manitowoc.   About ONLYLYON   ONLYLYON is a communication initiative that was launched in 2007 in order to promote a variety of aspects of the city of Lyon (France’s second biggest city) to an international audience. Lyon is the first city in France to have its own territorial marketing strategy, and the only city in the country whose initiative, in this respect, is backed by a group of almost 20 internationally renowned institutional and economic partners.   The ONLYLYON marketing strategy aims to promote the metropolitan area of Lyon and its region as a European beacon of economic excellence, capitalizing on the region’s proven leadership in sectors such as the environment, health, technology, textiles and urban transport. ONLYLYON also seeks to underline the region’s cultural attractions across sectors including heritage, history, gastronomy and tourism.   ADERLY is the economic development agency for the Lyon area and is a key member of the group of partner-agencies supporting the ONLYLYON initiative.   For further information, please go to: www.onlylyon.com   For further information, please contact :   Quote ref. : FTPB3912 Ms Kate RILEY - Press Officer UBIFRANCE Press Office in London Tel: +44 (0) 207 024 3640 kate.riley@ubifrance.fr View other press releases at : http://www.ubifrance.com/uk/  

Parentsaround.com to showcase parental-control solution at MWC 2014

Coline BORDET - 05-févr.-2014 15:40:00

Parentsaround.com will be showcasing its smart and intuitive multi-device parental-control solution at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show, which will take place from 24 to 27 February 2014 in Barcelona (Spain). This unparalleled filtering-software solution is designed to address the growing need to fight against internet addiction and protect young people from inappropriate content.   Parentsaround.com’s aim, in creating its parental-control solution, was to provide families with a practical and educational tool. This solution, which combines intuitiveness, efficiency and high added value, has already been recognized as a forerunner in the field of parental control. The company’s technology is a genuine breakthrough with regard to parental-control devices on the market. It has placed Parentsaround.com in a strategic position, to the extent that it has recently become an official partner of the Safer Internet Day 2014 and of the French national scheme known as Internet Sans Crainte (or Safer Internet Program).   Parentsaround.com stands out due to its ability to protect all types of devices, irrespective of the network used (with Wi-Fi connection, in particular). This amounts to an important technical innovation, which is in tune with public expectations as well as those of mobile-telecommunications operators seeking to provide an advanced parental-control service to their customers.   Parentsaround.com identified this market need and has become a specialist in the integration of its technology with mobile-telecoms operators. In fact, it is the first provider to equip a major French mobile-telephone operator with a white label 2.0 parental-control application for smartphones and tablets.   This centralized system is designed to safely guide children through the digital world by focusing on two main objectives: avoiding inappropriate content (patented internet-filtering technology, management of content and applications on smartphones and tablets, etc.), on the one hand, and tackling addiction (usage-time management), on the other.   The software developed by Parentsaround.com can be downloaded and installed in a few clicks onto smartphones, tablets and computers. It can then be accessed via an application portal or via a secure management console on the Parentsaround.com website. All operations are centralized from a device connected to the internet, which allows the parents of the under-age users to manage several profiles.   Parentsaround.com is very easy to use with its pre-defined and customizable access schedules, easily accessible statistics with regard to children’s internet use, and its time- and content-management platform.   Parentsaround.com places the child at the heart of the protection process and applies a tailored and unique safety profile for each child, irrespective of the medium used, the connection location, and the type of network. This feature has two benefits: firstly, users are able to calculate the time spent on each device and, secondly, it provides a unified internet filter.   Parentsaround.com features a patented innovative internet-filtering technology (Rapid Host Validation). The analysis (text and images) and site-categorisation motor offers filtering rates that far exceed the standards recommended and achieved by rival software products on the market.   The focal point of Parentsaround.com has always been the quality of its product and, as such, it places great emphasis on the innovation and added value of the services provided. Accordingly, the R&D division is a crucial part of the company. Parentsaround.com has been geared towards multi-devices from the onset. As a result, its integrated solution was tested on more than 10,000 families and guarantees protection under all networks, therefore meeting the expectations of mobile-telecoms operators.   The company has expanded into the iOS market, thereby offering an array of solutions to control the use of iPhones, iPads and iPods: control of applications by age group (including Safari), filtering of inappropriate content, limitation of online purchases and other installations, and limitation of use with a corresponding schedule.   Parentsaround.com focuses on B2B marketing by providing its solution — based on a set-up fee and income-share scheme — to mobile-telecoms operators seeking to offer this service to their customers. Thanks to this economic model, the company satisfies the need of mobile-telecoms operators to increase their service portfolio by providing them with a high-added-value product.   The general-public solution takes the form of a subscription on the www.parentsaround.com website. A single licence allows users to equip all the devices used by family members. This package costs €2.99 per month (i.e. less than £2.50).   Nowadays, more and more schools are using digital school bags in the form of tablets. Parentsaround.com offers a solution that is suited to this use through software that helps to manage application content, create usage schedules, and apply an internet filter. This solution can also be used to automatically allocate different user profiles to students, both inside and outside the institution concerned.   About Ars Nova Systems   Ars Nova Systems is a French company based in Nantes (Western France) that specializes in IT security and the analysis of multi-media content. The company has developed Parentsaround.com, a multi-device parental-control solution that can be managed remotely via the internet. It has been designed to enable parents to filter the internet content that is available to their children and monitor the time they spend online, in order to fight against internet addiction.   Ars Nova Systems will be showcasing its Parentsaround.com solution at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show, which will take place from 24 to 27 February 2014 in Barcelona (Spain). MWC is one of the world’s leading events for mobile telecommunications, services and content. The company will be exhibiting on the French Pavilion, in Hall 5 of the trade fair (Stand 5B41, Station 10), and is seeking partners and distributors in Britain.   For further information about the trade show, please go to: www.mobileworldcongress.com     For further information about the company, please go to: www.parentsaround.com     For further information, please contact :   Quote ref. : FTPB3909 Ms Kate RILEY - Press Officer UBIFRANCE Press Office in London Tel: +44 (0) 207 024 3640 kate.riley@ubifrance.fr View other press releases at : http://www.ubifrance.com/uk/

Developed by OREQUIP, it can fit into any point of sale (supermarkets, bakeries, snack shops, etc.). The market for sandwiches is huge and growing: Croust’wich HOT, Croust’wich SALAD and Croust’wich DESSERTS, among other options in the range, will provide sandwich makers with varied garnishes in a simple, fast and efficient manner.   SIGNATURE OLFACTIVE is a renowned specialist in olfactory stimulation, which acts on the consumer’s emotions, memory and behaviour.

The goal is to make the consumer a player in product manufacturing, repairing and customization. The device consists of a community multi-media platform — web and mobile combined — and a 3D printing kiosk placed in the retail space’s sales area.
