leave a comment »

-Continued Strong New Subscription Annuity Growth, 22 Percent Over Same Period in 2015; Company Now Has More Than 250 Internet of Things (IoT) Customers
FOSTER CITY, Calif. /PRNewswire/ — Arena Solutions, a pioneer in cloud-based, unified product lifecycle management (PLM) and quality management system (QMS) applications, today announced it closed a record number of new customers in Q2 2016. New subscription annuities grew by 22 percent in Q2 2016 over the same period in 2015, an accomplishment driven in large part by the release of Arena Training in June, as well as by a record number of new EMEA customers brought in by Arena’s VAR partners in that region.

“As a leading Medical Device Manufacturer it’s critical for us to maintain focus on complying with the ever increasing training requirements from the FDA and other regulatory agencies worldwide,” said Ken Perino, Director of Quality for Abbott Electrophysiology. “We’re very excited to roll out Arena’s new Training Solution. This enables our entire organization to comply with the latest regulatory requirements, electronically. And because Arena is also in the cloud, all our employees can be updated automatically no matter where they are in the world. We expect Arena Training will dramatically reduce the prior manual efforts required to keep our organization’s training up to date and ensure regulatory compliance.”

Nativis – A clinical stage bioelectronics company developing non-invasive therapies for cancers and other serious diseases.
Interface Masters – A leading provider of high speed networking products.

RefleXion – Developing the first Biology-guided Radiotherapy (BgRT) system for cancer treatment.
Minifab – Experts in microfluidic product design, development and manufacturing.

“This was a record quarter for Arena, but what’s most illuminating is what our Q2 success says about future opportunities for our company,” said Craig Livingston, CEO of Arena. “We now have more than 250 customers who play in the IoT space, and that’s extremely robust considering that it’s a market segment that’s just getting started. What’s more, the response to our new training management module was extremely strong, driving record growth in new subscriptions. The market is responding to our expanding cloud PLM platform, and that’s why we are far outpacing the market’s overall growth.”

Mandatory SIM Card Registration in China to Cause Turbulence in Global Shipments

leave a comment »

LONDON /PRNewswire/ — ABI Research forecasts the rising global SIM card market to top five billion shipments this year, and expects developing markets in South Africa, Saudi Arabia, and pockets in the Asia Pacific and Middle East regions to experience above average growth rates through 2021. A mandatory registration, however, will cause turbulence in the Chinese market, as the government now mandates citizens to register their SIM cards.

Logo – http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20151014/276887LOGO

“The Chinese SIM card market will experience an unsettling period from late 2016 up to early 2019,” says Dimitrios Pavlakis, Industry Analyst at ABI Research. “Somewhat slower growth for 4G and the subsequent cannibalization of 3G shipments will characterize this chapter.”

China’s current economic climate continues to affect most technology segments, causing shipment decline across multiple verticals and affecting SIM card sales noticeably. Governmental mandates are also pushing the three big MNOs to increase LTE penetration rates. While all citizens will be subjected to mandatory SIM Card registration by 2017, or otherwise will be under penalty of account termination.

“Not all is bleak, however, and while LTE rollouts are still facing difficulties in certain Asia Pacific regions, we foresee global 4G SIM card shipments accounting for approximately 23% of the overall APAC shipments for 2016,” concludes Pavlakis. “This percentage will rise to almost 45% by 2021 in the APAC region, sitting above the 43% global 4G shipments, as 4G becomes dominant.”

These findings are from ABI Research’s SIM Cards (https://www.abiresearch.com/market-research/product/1022843-sim-cards/) and SIM Card ICs (https://www.abiresearch.com/market-research/product/1022836-sim-card-ics/) market research. These reports are part of the company’s Digital Security sector (https://www.abiresearch.com/market-research/practice/digital-security/), which includes research, data, and analyst insights.

Moet Hennessy Celebrates the Success of Solar Impulse

leave a comment »

ABU DHABI, UAE /PRNewswire/ —

More than a year after the beginning of the round the world tour, Solar Impulse returned to Abu Dhabi achieving the impossible.

As an Official Partner of Solar Impulse and Host Partner of the Mission Control Center in Monaco, Moët Hennessy accompanied Solar Impulse at every moment of its round-the-world tour.

To view the Multimedia News Release, please click: http://www.multivu.com/players/uk/7813551-moet-hennessy-solar-impulse/

After a 48-hour journey from Cairo in the single-passenger cockpit, Solar Impulse Pilot, Initiator and Chairman Bertrand Piccard was welcomed by André Borschberg, Solar Impulse Pilot, CEO and Co-Founder in Abu Dhabi. Thirteen years after their initial vision of travelling around the world powered only by the sun, their dream became a reality.

Christophe Navarre, Chairman and CEO of Moët Hennessy, witnessed the arrival from the Mission Control Center in Monaco. In speaking with André Borschberg by telephone just after Bertrand Piccard’s arrival, he stated “Congratulations! You did it! This was a long journey and an important step for humanity. We are proud and we are humbled to be your partner.” He was joined by Serge Telle, French Minister of State of Monaco, and Raymond Clerc, Mission Director of Solar Impulse, to offer a Moët & Chandon toast to the entire team in recognition of their incredible work and the shared values of Solar Impulse and Moët Hennessy: a pioneering spirit and attention to the earth.

“Celebrating Sustainability”

Solar Impulse and Moët Hennessy seek to raise awareness of the vast potential of clean technologies. Together they celebrate a leap towards a better world.

All Moët Hennessy wines and spirits are fruits of the earth. Each of the 22 brands within the Moët Hennessy portfolio embraces a proactive environmental policy to ensure transmission of this heritage for centuries to come. All the vineyards of all Moët Hennessy’s Champagne Maisons – Moët & Chandon, Veuve Clicquot, Dom Pérignon, Ruinart, Krug and Mercier – achieved the double certification of “Sustainable Vineyards” and “High Environmental Value” in 2014. Hennessy Cognac was the first company in the wine and spirits sector worldwide to receive certification in 1998 for its Environmental Management System, which has been subsequently renewed every three years. Moët Hennessy estates promote biodiversity, the protection of local habitats and water conservation around the world.

Pioneer Spirit

In addition to being an innovator in sustainable development, Moët Hennessy is defined by breaking boundaries, both geographic and human. From the beginning, each brand sought to attain higher levels of excellence and share their products with new consumers across the world. The first shipments of Veuve Clicquot to Russia were in 1780. The first shipments of Hennessy to the United States were in 1794. Moët Hennessy was the first French company to begin planting vineyards in distant lands – from the sparkling Chandon in Mendoza, Argentina in 1959 to the most recent launch of red wine Ao Yun in Shangri-La, China this year.

Today, Moët Hennessy exports 95% of its production and is the world’s leading producer and exporter of luxury wines and spirits.

G2A Wins UK Financial Services Award 2016 in London: ‘Innovation in Customer Experience’

leave a comment »

RZESZOW, Poland, LONDON and HONG KONG /PRNewswire/ —

G2A.COM was judged a winner in London, UK, recently, after presenting at the Financial Services Awards 2016 in the category ‘Innovation in Customer Experience’. This great news was announced by G2A at the annual summer party for their 600 staff.
(Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20160725/392563 )
(Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20160725/392564 )

The panel of judges heard how G2A had built the company from nothing to over 10 million global customers within 5 years, with scores of over 99% on eBay and 8.9 on Trust pilot for their innovations in customer experience.

The G2A market is a place where buyers and sellers meet and transact. The company has the biggest variety of gaming products in the world with over 35 thousand digital gaming products. Through G2A Pay, a world-first payment process, G2A enables customers to select from over 100 global payment methods.

The story of G2A was almost tragic because as they entered the gaming industry, doors were closed against them: ‘Maybe we were too small and they were too big’ said CEO Bartosz Skwarczek. But whatever the reason, G2A, despite their good intentions and passion, struggled to gain a foothold in the gaming industry. Bartosz added: ‘Because of this trauma of not being able to engage when we so desperately wanted to play a part in developing the gaming industry, G2A has since maintained an ‘open doors’ attitude for collaboration.’

Now, G2A is the fastest growing digital gaming marketplace in the world, with customers in 140 countries throughout the world and employing over 600 gamers from over 30 countries. G2A gives gamers the chance to work in the industry they love because many gamers grew up gaming. Additionally, the company gives gamers the opportunity to do what they love by choosing a gaming career.
