Imagine you have finished a long day at work, you need some relaxation and are lying on the bed. You take out your favorite toy, however, the controller is missing, and you spend 40 mins trying to find it. When you eventually do, the mood has gone.


It’s a familiar story, but thanks to ZALO that can be a thing of the past. Award-winning intimate product brand ZALO has constantly shaken up the intimate product industry, bringing out innovative new products for women, and with the launch of Amour, a vibrating egg where storage box doubles as the remote control, so no more lost remote. When you’re in the mood, Amour is ready to go, every time.


That alone makes this new vibrator something different and reflects the innovative thinking ZALO are famous for, but with the Amour, they have taken this idea of trouble-free playtime to a completely new level. For those who don’t like button pressing, Amour features motion sensors inside the controller box to recognize movement and translate that into stronger or weaker vibrations. This means complete control without buttons or switches and no wires either. Just turn the storage box and change the vibration level through its wireless connection. With 5 levels of vibration, you can always find just the right movement you need.


That means easier control, improved performance and more of what you want from a toy. ZALO didn’t cut corners anywhere else either, it sticks to their exceptional standards for materials and construction, along with its unique shape designed to reach all the right spots. Winged like Cupid, it is an orb of love that is carefully crafted for pleasure.

The brand has been one of the leading producers of intimate products with a reputation for quality and easy to use, effective toys that appeal to women around the world.


ZALO produce a wide range of award-winning toys, with a variety of shapes and textures to cover everything women want, all sharing the highest quality material and construction possible for peace of mind and great performance. Highlights of the range include the easy to use app that integrates with many of the products, allowing several features never seen before. It can act as a complete remote for those that prefer a phone-based controller when it’s time for some fun.


However, it is the Queen Set that has garnered the most industry recognition, winning three awards. A Bluetooth enables G-Spot device, it can be used in tandem with the app and features a beautiful Swarovski Crystal inset into the body. The Queen uses revolutionary Pulse-Wave technology that can deliver as many as 75 vibrations a second for the ultimate experience.


With studies showing that as many as 75% of women today never reaching orgasm from intercourse alone, ZALO understands you need some help. Featuring 8 vibration modes with up to 75 vibrations per second from that amazing pulse-wave technology, it hits the right spot every time. For a natural feel, it also includes temperature control so a user can dial in the exact experience they want.

The leader in worldwide golf reservations and technology plays a key role in the growth of the €270 million Irish golf tourism market


London, United Kingdom — 17 September 2019 — Following the success of its European expansion earlier this year, golfscape announced today its launch in Ireland. The fast-growing golf tech business has integrated with multiple courses on the Emerald Isle to expose the region’s world-class facilities to an international user base. The first and only worldwide tee time booking platform is making golf easier to book for both local and international players by moving courses online to increase accessibility while supporting the area’s rapid growth in golf tourism.


Earlier this year, the Irish Times highlighted the importance of golf tourism in a feature revealing that more than 200,000 overseas visitors play golf in Ireland every year. Golf plays a significant role in Irish tourism, resulting in considerable increases in the hospitality sector. International golfers are estimated to contribute almost €270 million to the Irish economy, with up to 50% of them coming from the United States.


“We are driving our international user base to Ireland and accelerating the growth of overseas visitors to the area. We are supported by a global team of talent that continues expanding to benefit our partner courses,” said golfscape CEO Raghad Mukhaimer. “Our unique expertise will play a key role in promoting the region abroad to achieve Ireland’s goal of growing international tourism. Players all over the world can book golf online as easily as they book hotels and flights on Expedia.”


Established in 2013, VC-funded golfscape has seen huge success in implementing its cutting-edge technology solutions in Africa, Near East, and Asia-Pacific. With over 400,000 users from more than 200 countries, golfscape is positioned to add value to its partner golf courses and provide golfers in Ireland and around the world with a more seamless, secure, and easy way of booking golf.


golfscape has received tremendous support from the region’s golf courses including one of Ireland’s leading golf properties – Fota Island Resort – partnering in the launch of the Irish market. Earlier this month, golfscape invited US golf sensation Katie Kearney to review the top golfing destination. In collaboration with world-class Portmarnock Hotel & Golf Links, the journalist and influencer of over 300,000 followers helped introduce the campaign to promote golf in Ireland.


About golfscape:


golfscape was founded in 2013 with a vision to revolutionize the golf industry with technology for the modern golfer. Today, golfscape is the industry leader providing its reservations and operations services in over 30 golf destinations across Europe, Africa, Near East, and Asia-Pacific. golfscape's OS platform delivers course operators next-generation tee sheets, member and visitor mobile apps, as well as revenue-generating technologies and services.

<![CDATA[ New Study Finds SkinVision Detects 95% of Skin Cancer ]]> https://pressat.co.uk/releases/new-study-finds-skinvision-detects-95-of-skin-cancer-470250379fb3c4519381e9a167d762d8 https://pressat.co.uk/releases/new-study-finds-skinvision-detects-95-of-skin-cancer-470250379fb3c4519381e9a167d762d8 Thursday 12 September, 2019

An international group of researchers working with Erasmus University Medical Center (Erasmus MC) in the Netherlands determined that SkinVision – the first CE-marked skin cancer application based on extensive clinical trials – has a sensitivity of 95.1% in detecting the most common forms of skin cancer. 


The research published in the Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (JEADV) evaluated the accuracy of the application for triaging skin lesions. The researchers found that the SkinVision algorithm has high sensitivity to detect skin cancer and can be a valuable tool for early skin cancer detection.


Early Recognition of Skin Cancer 


Skin cancer is a growing problem, with currently between 2 and 3 million non-melanoma skin cancers and 132,000 melanoma skin cancers occurring each year globally. In fact, one in three cancers diagnosed is skin cancer. The good news is that 95% of skin cancers can be successfully treated if caught at an early stage.


As healthcare systems are adopting more innovative technology, there is increasing evidence that mobile health apps can help to save lives. SkinVision empowers individuals to take their skin health into their own hands by transforming their smartphone into a medical device for skin cancer risk assessment. So far, SkinVision has assisted in the finding of more than 35,000 skin cancer cases globally and managed to direct those people to a healthcare professional for further examination.


The service has the potential to triage those in need of treatment and could help to decrease both the average cost of treatment and the number of unnecessary doctor visits. The company has built up a customer portfolio of 1,200,000 users globally and a database of 3.5 million pictures of suspicious and benign skin spots.


‘The field of mHealth apps for the risk assessment of skin cancer is undergoing rapid evolution. It is clear from this and other recent studies based on clinical images that the application of machine learning in large image databases leads to a high sensitivity to distinguish between malignant and benign skin cancer cases,’ said Tiago M. C. D. Marques, postdoctoral researcher at Erasmus MC, and one of the study authors.


To evaluate the sensitivity of the algorithm, researchers used 285 histopathologically validated skin cancer cases from two previously published clinical studies and the smartphone application user database. The specificity was computed on a separate set from the user base, which contained 6,000 clinically-validated cases.


‘Providing the layperson with a highly sensitive, robust and easy-to-use method to check skin lesions for cancer has been the SkinVision research team’s goal for the past seven years,' said Andreea Udrea, a Ph.D. researcher at SkinVision, associate professor at University Politehnica of Bucharest and the lead author of the study. ‘I’m confident to say that SkinVision users benefit from the latest technological advancements that have been incorporated in a rigorous and clinically tested mHealth app.’


In terms of specificity, Erasmus MC is currently preparing a prospective study for further clinical validation, which will be performed at the Outpatient Dermatology Department during the coming months.

About SkinVision


SkinVision is headquartered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. SkinVision was founded in 2012 and is an awareness and tracking solution that supports individuals with the early recognition of skin cancer. Research shows the app has a sensitivity of 95% and specificity of 78%, well above that of a GP, with a sensitivity of 60%. 


SkinVision has partnerships with leading health insurers, skin cancer clinics, and research universities in Australia, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, and New Zealand. SkinVision is a part of the NHS Innovation Accelerator in England and the Digital.Health London Accelerator working to spread innovation and save lives from skin cancer while relieving high pressure on health services. The SkinVision app is commercially available worldwide except for the United States and Canada.

UNIDO Headquarters, Vienna, Austria


VIENNA, 19-20 September 2019 – Two United Nations agencies will join an international network of academics, civil society organisations and policymakers to host a workshop on automation, artificial intelligence, and premature de-industrialization.


The interdisciplinary workshop, co-hosted by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, the United Nations University and the Global Inequality Dynamics Research Network will investigate the future of industrial work, including threats posed to developing countries by emerging technologies and ‘premature de-industrialization’.


With sessions focusing on automation and globalization, jobs and development, as well as premature de-industrialization and structural transformation, the event will feature researchers from the Universities of Cambridge, Harvard and Johannesburg, as well as from the International Monetary Fund, the Overseas Development Institute and the World Trade Organization, among many others.


The workshop will open with a keynote speech from Margaret McMillan (Tufts University), followed by five subject-tailored sessions, and a policy panel chaired by Kunal Sen (UNU-WIDER). As such, more than 30 researchers from around the world will tackle the most pressing questions of the Fourth Industrial Revolution:


What is the impact of new technologies and ‘Industry 4.0’ on comparative advantage, industrial work and social and economic inclusiveness in developing countries?What are the distributional and political dynamics of new modes of structural change? And what public policies are plausible and appropriate?How are the manufacturing and service sectors interdependent? Does a strong manufacturing base support the growth of high-tech service industries? Can the growth of high-productivity service industries drive industrialization? What public policies are required to create synergies between manufacturing and service development for inclusive and sustainable growth?What would make traditional forms of structural transformation – industrialization – more viable in the future years? What public policies should be discussed and implemented?


The event will feature a number of practical outputs, including media interviews with high-level researchers and a series of policy briefs, set for release in late 2019. For more details, including the two-day programme, please see the event homepage and follow the Twitter accounts of UNIDO and UNU-MERIT and the ESRC GPID Network.

Dual-Sided Digital A-Frame Engages Customers in Shop-Front Locations


Armagard announces the launch of its battery-powered DigiStopper. This unique range of cable-free, outdoor digital A-frames replaces the traditional sandwich board with portable, high-bright and weatherproof advertising ideal for shop-front locations and customer entrances.


“Businesses benefit from engaging outdoor advertising that makes a great first impression on passers-by and helps them stand out on the high street,” says Mark Neal, MD of Armagard.


The portable outdoor A-frame has two 43” displays, lockable castor wheels and an IP56 rating that allows vendors to advertise effectively in any weather.


“Importantly, the dual-sided design captures the attention of people walking in both directions, so vendors enjoy twice the customer engagement from a single digital signage unit,” says Mark Neal.


Battery-powered units are available with displays of 700 NITS and 1,000 NITS, offering run times of up to 14 hours from an overnight charge. For maximum visibility in direct sunlight, a 2,500 NITS, mains-powered option ensures promotions stay clear in the brightest conditions.


“We wanted to provide businesses with a user-friendly and engaging solution to pavement digital signage,” says Mark Neal. “Cordless operation makes it easy for users to position the A-frame each morning and move it around during the day, ensuring promotions get seen by the greatest number of people.”


As an outdoor-ready solution, the IP56 digital A-board has an innovative environmental controller board that ensures reliable advertising up to 40°C. The sunlight readable screens also feature automatic brightness controls that keep promotions clear and engaging throughout the day.


The first production batch has already been ordered. Armagard’s Germany-based partner, an existing user of DigiStopper units, says: “We’re excited to be the first company to partner with Armagard to bring these unique displays to businesses looking for convenient and effective shop-front advertising.”


Armagard welcomes enquiries from resellers and end users interested in purchase or lease options. For more information on the full range of DigiStopper units, visit www.armagard.co.uk or call +44 (0)121 608 7210. For the latest updates, follow Armagard on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.

<![CDATA[ Job-Filling & Job-Finding App Hela Job Launches as UK Gig Economy Doubles ]]> https://pressat.co.uk/releases/job-filling-job-finding-app-hela-job-launches-as-uk-gig-economy-doubles-84fc881420a0e5c5db2aeef60709a13b https://pressat.co.uk/releases/job-filling-job-finding-app-hela-job-launches-as-uk-gig-economy-doubles-84fc881420a0e5c5db2aeef60709a13b Monday 9 September, 2019

With one in 10 UK adults now working on gig economy platforms, the Hela Job app is the first to focus on local job markets. Launching in London this week and then cities throughout the UK, the app will help business owners find local, part-time workers with a click on their smartphone and help job seekers find work in their own neighbourhood just as fast.


September 9th, 2019, London, UK – In the latest sign of the increasingly digital UK job market, Hela Job launched in London this week. The app is the first in the nation to focus on the HR needs of restaurants, retailers and other businesses that rely more than most on a local, part-time workforce. While other gig apps help businesses find contractors and freelancers for work that is primarily managed online, Hela Job helps local businesses find local workers.


“Just as entrepreneurs with skills focused on niche markets are the most successful in a gig economy, Hela Job is focused on the needs of local businesses and local job seekers,” said Hela Job Founder and CEO Ioannis Antypas. “While most job apps help companies find workers around the world, we help companies find workers around the corner."


A recent study by the Trades Union Congress (TUC) found that Britain’s booming gig economy more than doubled in size over the past three years and now accounts for 4.7 million workers. The study also concluded that one in 10 working-age adults now work on gig economy platforms, up from one in 20 in 2016.


While Uber, the ride-hailing smartphone app, is the most notable exception, most gig platforms are not focused on fulfilling the HR needs of local job markets.


Enter Hela Job, an app focused on helping businesses find local, part-time employees in an instant. How does it work? Once the business owner or HR manager posts a job on the platform, the most qualified local worker is notified instantly on their smartphone. Similar to Uber, if a worker doesn’t respond within a few seconds; the job automatically rolls over to the next local, pre-qualified worker. Also similar to Uber, when a worker accepts an offer, the app uses GPS to physically track them as they drive or, if they live in the same neighborhood, walk from their home to the job site.


HR managers in the UK who previewed Hela Job before this week’s launch, believe the app will save them time and money, allowing them to avoid paying large agency fees. Employers were particularly impressed by the app’s digital shift tracking feature, which allows employees hired through Hela Job to scan a QR code with their smartphones at the start of every shift and scan another code when their shift ends. This makes time-sheets digital, more accurate, and dramatically reduces the amount of time needed to track employee hours.


HR managers save even more time during the hiring process because Hela Job pre-screens and pre-interviews job seekers before they are eligible to be hired through the platform, a step that eliminates the time employers would use to interview job candidates themselves. In addition to interviewing prospective workers before the are eligible to be hired through Hela Job, they’re also subjected to an AI-powered security check.


Job seekers who previewed the app before its launch found it empowering. “The location feature is great, who doesn’t want to work closer to home?” said Sia Tehrani, a London resident who works part-time at a London coffee shop. “I like the freedom the app gives me. Just like Uber, when I want to work, I’ll turn it on and make myself available. When I don’t want to work, I'll turn it off. I’m in charge of my work schedule and I love it!”


After launching in London this week, Antypas plans to make Hela Job available in every major UK city by December. And later, to keep pace with the booming gig economy worldwide, the company will introduce its job-filling, job-finding app to international markets. Hela Job’s next target - the United States, where an estimated 57 million workers have joined the gig economy.


The company’s slogan, “Fill a Job, Find a Job with Hela Job”, will likely be translated into multiple languages as service industries in industrialized countries worldwide undergo a fundamental, digital transformation, relying less on full-time employees and more on part-time, local workers looking for jobs in their own neighbourhood.

InnoMedia is proud to announce the availability of the BuddyTalk BT200 speakerphone and smartspeaker. Engineered for use as a conference phone or an office phone in work environments, it offers unrivaled flexibility in calling, ease of use, superior voice quality and high levels of security. As a smartspeaker, the BT200 has been designated an ““Alexa Built-in” product as it is an Amazon AlexaTM Voice Service (AVS) qualified solution. This allows it to support a broad suite of AVS-enabled features such as standard Alexa questions and commands, timers, alarms, reminders and voice-enabled control of AVS-supported IoT devices.


Optimized for enterprise users, the BT200 has also been certified for use with Amazon’s Alexa for Business.

Enterprise users can therefore use voice commands to manage schedules and calendars, keep track of to-do lists, manage meetings and meeting rooms, and dial into conference calls.


The BT200 also facilitates the experience of setting up and managing calls by offering a variety of convenient call control mechanisms such as: by issuing voice commands, via the integrated touch panel on the device, using a smartphone app, or with a standard telephone connected to the BT200. In addition, a companion tablet controller bundled with the device can also be used to place and manage calls, as well as to control the BT200. During calls, users can communicate either using the BT200 as a hands-free speakerphone, or in a private mode using a smartphone or standard telephone for added discretion.


Ease of use is coupled with an excellent audio experience through the use of high-quality codecs (e.g. Wideband Opus, AMR-WB), advanced acoustic processing, and network impairment handling to deliver superior voice quality to users. The BT200 is also highly secured, applying HTTPS and TLS protection for messages and signaling exchanges, and SRTP/ZRTP for voice media.


Incorporating InnoMedia’s own SIP stack to interface with any VoIP service provider, the BT200 can support both inbound and outbound calling to any region covered by the service provider’s network. All of these elements combine to ensure that the BT200 provides an exceptional user experience for enterprise customers.


“InnoMedia’s strength in voice communications allows us to combine the excellent features available in Alexa Voice Service and Alexa for Business with a high quality speakerphone capability to deliver an exciting new product designed for enterprise users”, said Dr. Harprit Chhatwal, Chief Technical Officer, InnoMedia. “For this reason, Amazon reached out to us to offer the BuddyTalk BT200 to its Alexa for Business customers.

Daisy Corporate Services will use Cloudmore’s automation platform as part of a plan to accelerate the adoption of its cloud solutions.


Belfast, UK – Daisy Corporate Services, a leading UK-based communication, IT and cloud hosting provider, has partnered with Cloudmore to power up its cloud subscription services business. Daisy will integrate the Cloudmore platform to automate internal management processes, offer self-service to their customers and automate end-to-end financial reconciliation and billing processes.


The Cloudmore subscription management platform is used by some of the world's largest service providers to streamline the procurement, management and delivery of IT products and services. Daisy plans to use Cloudmore to simplify the procurement and provisioning of services such as Microsoft O365 and Azure. This partnership also forms part of a move to consolidate and centralize internal processes, making it easier for sales, provisioning, finance and support to manage a growing number of customer accounts.


Michael Wicander, Cloudmore’s CEO commented: "We are delighted to welcome Daisy Corporate Services on board. Daisy is a significant force in the UK market. We look forward to a close relationship and to providing Daisy with the opportunity to scale and expand their cloud service offer to customers."


“The Cloudmore platform will really benefit Daisy and its customers. It will enable them to self-serve and will automate and streamline key processes and data for our teams— all from one single, easy-to-use, feature-rich portal,” said Richard Beeston, Head of Product at Daisy Corporate Services.


Once the Cloudmore project is complete, Daisy will be able to deliver an optimized digital customer experience using enhanced tools that allow end-users to flex products and licenses up and down, reconcile detailed costs and view their public-cloud consumption and usage breakdowns. Daisy will also be able to diversify its portfolio of services by adding internal services, new vendors, or adding services already integrated into Cloudmore.
