Two displays put alongside will show static menu items together with price list and vivid promotion video rotating every minute providing viewers brand new visual experiences.

In addition, a special content of flight schedule will also be presented through SMP-WEBDUO to highlight the most fantastic function of supporting extended multimedia contents from one screen to another. Flight schedule is fixed on the bottom of screens while on the top a plane flies over creating eye-catching animation effects.

CAYIN arranges SMP-PROPLUS in the school area to show how digital signage can be applied as a school bulletin. Within this electronic bulletin, study group information, campus plan, or graduation ceremony announcements will be displayed in either video or text format making more colorful performances.

As in the hospitality area, CAYIN will present SMP-WEB3, the web-based media player that enables real-time video playback and live streaming function, together with xPost, the specially designed application software for hotels and convention centers. In addition to live demonstrations through SMP-WEB3, xPost will also be introduced with its three modules: meetingPost, wayfinderPost, and lobbyPost. Informative messages such as weather information, meeting schedule, wayfinding information or promotional messages such as advertisements will be conveyed corresponding to the real hotel applications.

Super Monitor, the Windows®-based package software which is used to monitor and manage multiple selected CMS servers and all SMP players, will be shown at ISE 2009 with its brand new user-friendly interface. The whole schedule details can be displayed in calendar view either by daily or weekly and, even better, users can change the schedule time in an instant with an instinct drag-and-drop action. Furthermore, to be better integrated with other solutions, Super Monitor 2.0 is comprised with the central scheduling function which enables all schedule contents to be synchronized with those of the CMS servers.

“CAYIN is always devoted itself in research and development and we are achieving a big improvement in products this year so that more sophisticated digital signage solutions will be demonstrated to visitors,” said Ravel Chi, vice president of International Sales Department at CAYIN Technology. “Moreover, to root in the digital signage market and facilitate its development, CAYIN actively sponsors DOOH Conference held during the ISE exhibition for the first time.

White House Mental Health Technology Conference Highlights Mood 24/7 App

New York, NY (PRWEB) October 15, 2013

Mood 24/7 (http://www.Mood247.com) a web-based mental health tracking and care coordination technology invented by Dr. Adam Kaplin of Johns Hopkins Medicine and developed by Remedy Health Media, was featured recently at the White House’s Behavioral Health IT Innovations Conference hosted by the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) in partnership with the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Dr. Kaplin was selected to present the importance of a coordinated care approach to dealing with mental health disorders, such as depression. In the U.S., 25% of the population suffers from a mood disorder and these conditions often make people feel that they are isolated and alone.

Mood 24/7 is an automated mood tracker using patient’s own mobile phones combined with a web portal to consolidate all care-related communications, which is a critical challenge given that mood disorder patients see an average of six specialists per year. The application uses the web and text messaging to track patients’ mood and connect them with their healthcare providers, friends, and family. An adjunct to face-to-face treatment, Mood 24/7 sends a daily text message that prompts self-assessment and reporting of mood on a scale of 1 to 10. Patients can add explanatory notes to their secure web-based personal mood chart that can be reviewed online in real time with care providers to inform treatment decisions.

Mood 24/7 has been shown to statistically increase patient adherence to daily mood tracking in comparison to when using paper or email-based. Active users respond to 80-90% of daily text messages sent to track mood, making this text message-based program more effective than subscription e-mail tracking programs that report an average open rate of 20%* and a click-through-rate of just 3%*. Relaunched this summer, Mood 24/7 boasts over 11,000 users and 500 registered physicians.

“Being invited to the White House only a few months after re-launching this product is a testimony to Mood 24/7, Dr. Kaplin, and the great need for innovation in the behavioral health market. Innovation hasn’t had an impact on the suicide rate in over 50 years. In the U.S. alone, 1 million people attempt suicide each year. Remedy’s mission is to have a real impact on these outcomes. Mood 24/7 as part of a coordinated care program, in early tests, has proven to be effective,” said Terence Finn, Chief Technology Officer of Remedy Health Media. “We are excited about the response we are receiving from users, researchers, health information technology firms, and enterprises!”

About Dr. Adam Kaplin

Dr. Kaplin graduated from Yale University before receiving his MD and Ph.D. from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He currently has a joint appointment as a Clinician-Researcher in the Departments of Psychiatry and Neurology at Johns Hopkins where he focuses his research on immune-mediated mechanisms of depression and cognitive impairment in CNS autoimmune diseases. He is the principle psychiatric consultant to the Johns Hopkins Multiple Sclerosis and Transverse Myelitis Centers. Dr. Kaplin is the Chairman of the Scientific Advisory Board for the Montel Williams MS Foundation, and a Medical Advisor to the Cody Unser First Step Foundation (CUFSF), the Transverse Myelitis Association (TMA), the Johns Hopkins Project RESTORE, and the Nancy Davis MS Foundation. He is also the CEO and President of Altammune, a startup biotechnology company specializing in developing aggressive new therapies to put Autoimmune Diseases into long-term remission.

Dr. Kaplin is the inventor of an eHealth mood tracking technology licensed exclusively to and developed by Remedy Health Media as Mood247.com that also functions as an electronic patient diary and a means for individuals to coordinate care with their health care providers.

NAPW Hosted Today’s Most Successful Businesswomen at National Networking Conference in New York City

Garden City, NY (PRWEB) May 23, 2012

National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) hosted their annual National Networking Conference at the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers on Friday, May 18, 2012, bringing together powerful businesswomen from across the country, including CEO’s and CMO’s from some of the world’s leading companies. Over 1,000 members attended and experienced a full day of inspiring speeches, networking sessions, exhibitions and much more. The conference was hosted by NAPW National Spokeswoman Star Jones, an acclaimed lawyer, journalist, television personality and best-selling author, and featured a highly anticipated keynote speech by Sara Blakely, Founder and Owner of Spanx, and the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire. The conference was also supported by generous sponsors including Lenovo, FTD.com, American Airlines, ZICO Water, Pearl Vodka, GEICO and Cleveland Golf.

Star Jones opened the conference to a standing ovation, introducing the ten dynamic panelists who would all join her in speaking to NAPW members throughout the day and within the theme of the conference, “Transitions: Take Control of Your Future.”

“I was thrilled to get the opportunity to host the conference and speak alongside such a vibrant group of women,” comments Star Jones. “NAPW is an amazing organization that offers women an incredible opportunity to make professional connections and advance their careers.”

Matthew Proman, Founder and President of NAPW adds, “We were so fortunate that Star was able to host our event and lead each panel discussion of admired panelists. Her words, along with speeches from women like Sara Blakely and Randi Zuckerberg touched every NAPW member in the room. It was truly a rare opportunity that embodies what our organization is all about.”

Each panelist gave a personal and empowering talk, relaying powerful messages about women in the workplace. NAPW is pleased to share key sound bites from this exclusive, membership-only event, which was free to NAPW members:

Star Jones, National NAPW Spokeswoman:

“Sometimes life throws us curve balls, sometimes it’s evolving just as we planned – either way – the choices are ours and if we are clear in our vision of what we want, what we stand for, and define a path to accomplish it, we can do anything we set our minds to.”

“Believing in myself and what I could bring to the table is what led me to leave the active practice of law and pursue a career in broadcasting. Don’t be afraid to ask for help, network, let your sister know you are revamping your plan and are open to her suggestions. That’s what NAPW is about.”

Sara Blakely, Founder and Owner of Spanx:

“I think failure, [as well as] your attitude and the way that you embrace the fear of failure, is a big part of where you end up in your life. My father used to ask us at the dining room table what we failed at… he used to encourage us to fail. I got the benefit of this different way of thinking, and for me it redefined failure. Failure was no longer for me the outcome, but failure was not trying.”

“On my journey of getting Spanx made it dawned on me very quickly I was talking to [mostly] men. I kept thinking to myself ‘where are the women?’ And then it dawned on me, maybe this is why our pantyhose and our shapers have been so uncomfortable for so long. At Spanx we put our products on women – my mother, my grandmother, and all of my friends. We’re testing it on real women.”

Randi Zuckerberg, Former Head of Marketing at Facebook and Founder/CEO of R to Z Studios:

“I believe in luck, but I also believe that the majority of the time you create your own luck. [Have] your eyes open all the time for opportunity – I think so many people are fixated on fear or doubt. There are great opportunities that are out there for everyone and [everyone] just misses them. Once you get that little inkling that you should change, just do it. I think that people second guess themselves and when you want to make a change you should do it before you change your mind.”

“Facebook was in my DNA – I bled blue Facebook and came to a point in my life where I didn’t know who I [was] other than Facebook. It’s really important right now in my life to do my own thing.”

Denise Incandela, EVP/CMO of Saks Inc:

“I’ve always thought of women and men as completely equal and have been quite controversial because of that. From my point of view whether it’s working at McKinsey or Saks Fifth Avenue I don’t see a glass ceiling. I see it as ‘I can do whatever I choose to do and it’s up to me to make that happen.’”

Rebecca Foy, Client Partner, Facebook Global Marketing Solutions:

“At Facebook we have a list of core values…core to every decision made from Mark Zuckerberg down to anybody across any discipline. One is focus on impact. We are still a relatively small organization and there are 900 million people we are trying to build products for and allow to connect. The other one is move fast and be bold, and I’ve never seen a company move faster. The fact that we’re moving at the speed we are is what has allowed companies across the tech world to be innovative.”

Janet Rollé, CMO of CNN Worldwide:

“I think that the ability to be true to yourself and to live the deepest of your personal values is always a pivotal moment. It’s in those moments that you discover what your values really are because they’ve been put to the test, and that really allows you to move forward.”

“There is a big difference between failing and being a failure…I think that’s something that we often forget.”

Christie Hefner, former CEO of Playboy and Executive Chairwoman of Canyon Ranch Enterprises:

“Don’t depend on finding a mentor. Depend on what you can control, which is building a network. What women sometimes do is have few deep relationships, but I would urge [women] to go wide and deep because [they] will meet different people at different places in [their] lives. The ability to cultivate those relationships was enormously useful to me.”

Kathleen Rice, Nassau County District Attorney:

“This is why NAPW is so important – it [gives] women the advice and the inspiration and the actual practical advancement to help qualify for the jobs that we all want and deserve. Always be prepared, always be ready because we are always going to be held to a higher standard – sorry ladies but that’s the truth! And I believe that organizations like NAPW play such a big role in getting us prepared and getting us ready.”

Judy Smith, Founder and CEO of Smith & Co:

“When you have a problem or crisis it’s hard to tell somebody that [you] made a mistake. Magnify that twenty times where you are President of a country, or you are a Senator or CEO and you have to tell a complete stranger that you screwed up, that’s a hard thing to do.”

Christina Norman, Media Strategist and Editor for the Huffington Post:

“Ask for help, because people will help you if you ask for it. A lot of times you feel like you need to do everything and project this great image of ‘I got it’ and it’s okay to ask for help.”

Liza Huber, Founder of Sage Bears LLC:

“Life is certainly a surprise…I listened to my gut and my instinct, [which] I think is important.”

“There are so many different [occupations] now, and there are so many great opportunities. It’s a gift to jump into something you love.”

Beth Ann Kaminkow, CEO of TracyLocke:

“What is the best version of yourself? We own the best versions of ourselves and that doesn’t mean having to be inauthentic to achieve that. It just means having to think about ‘how do I bring out the best in myself? How do I surround myself with people who bring out the best in me?’ If you can get intentional, deliberate and thoughtful about what that is and let that guide you, it can do remarkable things for you.”

Paige Mackenzie, Professional LPGA Golfer and NAPW Athletic Spokeswoman:

“As my career has evolved I’m able to really position myself and my brand the way that I want to. Its taken time to evaluate who I am as a person. I have to create depth in my own personal brand that shows people I’m more than a professional golfer. I have four pillar adjectives that I consider my brand: professional, approachable, creative and playful. I think in [our] own lives [we] have to create a personal brand that is willing and able to grow as [we] develop new skill sets.”

In a world where digital technology is often the dominant form of communication, NAPW is thrilled to provide a unique opportunity for its members to meet in-person, develop relationships, gain exposure, and ultimately establish and advance their careers.

NOVAtime Technology, Inc. Hosts Its 2014 Encounters Conference at the Bellagio Hotel, Las Vegas

(PRWEB) February 11, 2014

NOVAtime Technology, Inc. (http://www.novatime.com), a forward-thinking workforce management solution development company that continues to apply the latest technological advancements to its suite of Time and Attendance / Workforce Management products and services, announced today that it has successfully hosted its second User Conference February 4 – 6 at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.

In line with the Encounters Conference theme of “Mobility,” NOVAtime previewed exciting mobile offerings planned for 2014. One of the highlights of the conference was Frank Su, Founder and CEO of NOVAtime, providing a live demonstration of the new Advanced Schedule Manager (ASM) product. The demonstration showed one employee calling in sick and the system automatically sending text messages to several qualified employees to fill the position. As one employee electronically accepted the position, the system filled the open schedule. Another employee who responded a bit later received a declination message, saying the position had been filled.

NOVAtime User Conference attendees also enjoyed a virtual tour of the data center, as well as overviews of new features that were introduced to the solution in 2013 and new functionalities on the 2014 development roadmap. Additionally, attendees benefitted from sessions presented by Adam D.H. Grant (“Use of Mobile Apps in the Workplace: Privacy and Security”) and Alfred J. Landegger, Esq. (“2014 Wage and Hour Trends and Litigation”). Mr. Grant is a shareholder of Alpert, Barr & Grant; Mr. Landegger is a senior partner at Landegger Baron Law Group, which specializes in employment labor laws and workers’ compensation.

During a Product Review Board session, NOVAtime’s guest speaker, Kevin Soohoo, CIO at Air Systems, discussed how their company has been successfully utilizing the NOVAtime system via PCs and iPads to manage both union and non-union employees since July 2011. Mr. Soohoo elaborated on the large-group feature that was implemented in NOVAtime to support over 15,000 combinations of jobs and work order codes.

Many NOVAtime team members were on hand, meeting with attendees that they have worked with on implementations and supporting installations. In addition to NOVAtime personnel, the conference provided an opportunity for attendees to network with other NOVAtime customers. Lucy Saldana said, “It’s really good to meet the other users and learn from each other. The interaction with other users was very helpful. I enjoyed learning about some features that are already in the system and ones that will be available in 2014.” Another conference attendee commented that she really enjoyed meeting other NOVAtime customers, and tweeted, “I had a good time at the banquet.”

NOVAtime’s social media was flooded with posts from enthusiastic conference attendees. Reyna Garcia posted on Twitter, “Best conference ever!!!! Great company!!!” Someone else tweeted, “History, products, networking… great conference.”

A NOVAtime user and conference attendee posted on Facebook, “I am excited to be here again. I was looking forward to this since last year’s conference. Looking forward to learning what is new for 2014. Excited for the multi edit feature.” Later, the same person posted again, “I downloaded the mobile app while at the conference. Thanks to this technology I was able to see some employees left work to go to the Seahawks parade but didn’t clock out.”

The Encounters Conference not only provided information to users, but also enabled NOVAtime to gain insight from customers in order to guide future development. “The conference was very informative. It was a very pleasant experience, and we got to suggest new features that will help us be more productive,” said Tatjana Projkovska of Gerawan Farming Inc.

Brian Harris, Vice President of Client Services at NOVAtime, concluded, “This conference was the perfect opportunity for our customers to meet, share their experiences, and learn from each other. It was also an opportunity for them to witness the passion and energy of the NOVAtime team that continues to develop innovative advancements within the Workforce Management / Time and Attendance industry.”
