With the current statistics showing that the top eight social media networks drive over 30% of all website visits, it’s imperative that e-retailers maintain a strong social presence.

The guide covers the following elements:

  • Social networks that are driving the most traffic.
  • Social sites that are sending the most referrals.
  • Why more mentions come from accounts with fewer followers.
  • How original content is still the dominating force for gaining the most traction.

ACS recognizes Eastman innovation with Heroes of Chemistry award


KINGSPORT, Tenn., USA - September 2, 2015
- Eastman Chemical Company (NYSE: EMN) was recently recognized by the American Chemical Society (ACS) with the Heroes of Chemistry award, an honor reserved by the ACS to celebrate innovative work in chemistry and chemical engineering that led to commercial products benefiting the world. Eastman received the award for the first time ever, and for one of the defining success stories in company history: Eastman Tritan(TM) copolyester.

The ACS bestowed the awards to Eastman and five other companies at the ACS National Meeting in Boston. Six scientists and engineers who were integral to the Tritan(TM) commercialization effort accepted the award on behalf of Eastman: Ben Barton, Emmett Crawford, Ted Germroth, Chris Killian, Tony Messina and David Porter.

"Everyone at Eastman can take pride in the Heroes of Chemistry award, because it would be impossible to count all the team members who have had a hand in making it a success," said Steve Crawford, senior vice president and chief technology officer. "Our company transformed an entire industry with Tritan(TM). We're grateful to the ACS for recognizing a product that makes a difference in everyday lives."

This new generation copolyester has unique attributes of toughness, clarity, chemical resistance and heat resistance. Tritan(TM) is also different from traditional plastics in that it is free of bisphenol-A (commonly known as as BPA) and, as proven by repeated tests, free of estrogenic and androgenic activity. Tritan(TM) is the material of choice for a wide spectrum of consumer products that have contact with food, ranging from baby bottles to food blenders to sports water bottles, as well as in medical devices.

Killian, who is vice president for specialty products technology at Eastman, delivered remarks to the ACS gathering and echoed Crawford's assertion that collaboration within Eastman and with customers was essential.

"Although being recognized in this way is a great honor, the greater honor is having had a chance to play a small part in developing and commercializing this new family of polymers that has had such a significant impact on society and the quality of people's lives," Killian said. "The success of Tritan(TM) is built on the back of world-class technical capability coupled with business and market insight. At Eastman, we continue to focus our technology platforms and market insight on the problems and challenges of the customers and industries we serve."

Tritan(TM) also dovetails with the awards criteria. To be considered for the Heroes of Chemistry award, a product must represent a significant technical achievement, achieve commercial success, and demonstrate a positive impact on human welfare.

 "As we continue to strive to be the innovation leader for our customers at Eastman, we can look to Tritan(TM) for having the essential elements of an innovation success," Crawford said. "The Tritan(TM) team had deep insight into market needs. They adapted their approaches to remove barriers when the going got tough, and they worked with a sense of urgency to connect seamlessly across all disciplines to provide the needed solutions to make the platform a success.

 "Tritan(TM) became the dominant market force it is because people from every organization at Eastman worked together to deliver a differentiated product that satisfied the market need."

The other five companies receiving 2015 Heroes of Chemistry awards were Dow Chemical, Pfizer, Gilead Sciences, Celgene, and Bristol-Myers Squibb/Aegerion.

SingleStone Brings Kathrine Switzer to Richmond for VCU Massey Cancer Center Fundraiser

RICHMOND, VA--(Marketwired - Sep 2, 2015) - SingleStone, a Richmond, Va.-based consulting firm that specializes in customer experience solutions, is the title sponsor for a fundraiser benefitting the VCU Massey Cancer Center.

On Friday, November 13th at 6:00 p.m., the Massey Challenge, in partnership with SingleStone, will host a fundraiser featuring Kathrine Switzer, a storied female runner who has changed the face of women's running and sports participation the world over. The fundraiser benefits the VCU Massey Cancer Center through the Caped CUREsaders, a Massey Challenge team led by Jennifer Mott.

In 1967, women were not officially allowed as participants in the Boston Marathon. Much has changed since then, and Kathrine Switzer was "the girl who started it all." Despite an attempt by the race director to physically take Switzer out of the race, she was the first woman to officially finish. This action set off a chain reaction that has brought inspiration, opportunities and recognition to women in sports all over the world.

"Our name, SingleStone, refers to the expanding ripples that a single stone thrown into a body of water creates. Each human interaction has a ripple effect. Kathrine Switzer and Massey are examples of this truth," said Chris Little, SingleStone founding principal and CEO. "SingleStone creates a positive impact on people and business by designing intentional, people-focused customer experiences. We support all those who are working to change our world in positive ways. We are proud to bring Kathrine Switzer, a woman who has made such a difference for women and sports, together with the VCU Massey Cancer Center, one of the best cancer centers in the U.S." 

Switzer, introduced by running historian and author Roger Robinson, will speak on how to "Be The Hero In Your Own Life," a message that many will carry with them as they run the Anthem Richmond Marathon the following morning.

Event Cardio Group Crosses Major Hurdle

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 2, 2015) -  Event Cardio Group, Inc. (OTCQB: ECGI), a medical device company, is pleased to announce that its Ambulatory Arrhythmia Monitoring System, NowCardio™, has successfully completed the first audit of compliance to Canadian Medical Devices Conformity Assessment System (CMDCAS) and ISO 13485:2003. The audit was conducted by a recognized registrar, BSI Group, and is a significant milestone towards both Health Canada and FDA certification. NowCardio™ is on track to receive regulatory certification and approvals in Q4 of 2015.

NowCardio™ is an advanced Ambulatory Arrhythmia Monitoring System that will be used to monitor, analyze, record, and transmit a patient's heart physiological data in real-time. NowCardio™ will be a world first where a cardiac monitoring system can offer dual-functionality of both Cardiac Holter Monitoring and Cardiac Loop Event Recording.

John Bentivoglio, Chief Executive Officer and President of Event Cardio Group, stated, "The audit was outside verification that the NowCardio™ certification is advancing as planned, and we anticipate releasing this innovative product to the market in late 2015."

CARDIAC MONITORING MARKET: The combined U.S. cardiac equipment and services market in 2012 was estimated at $3.86 billion and is expected to grow to $4.19 billion in 2016. Globally, the cardiac monitoring market is anticipated at three to five times the US market. We believe that the market for ambulatory cardiac holter monitoring and event recording services will grow over the foreseeable future as a result of an aging and growing population, the increase in a prevalence of health conditions such as obesity that increase the likelihood of heart related diseases and the increasing awareness of cardiac diseases.

BREAST CANCER DETECTION MARKET: The global Point of Care market in 2011 was approximately $18.7 billion, up from $10.3 billion in 2005. In the U.S. alone, the combined breast cancer detection/diagnostic market was valued at more than $2.2 billion in 2008, and is expected to continue in a stable growth pattern over the next several years. Analysts have suggested a conservative growth rate of approximately 5.4% per year.

About Event Cardio Group, Inc.

Event Cardio Group, Inc. is a developer of medical diagnostic detection equipment focused on the detection, and preventive treatment, of high-risk diseases. The Company's core products are its NowCardio™, an advanced cardiac monitor which offers dual-functionality including both holter monitoring and event recording simultaneously, and FDA approved BreastCare DTS™ breast cancer detection device.

PCL Construction Selects WorkForce Software to Transform Time and Attendance

LIVONIA, MI--(Marketwired - Sep 2, 2015) -  WorkForce Software®, the leading cloud-based provider of enterprise workforce management solutions, today announced that PCL Construction has selected the company's EmpCenter solution to enhance project costing, workforce utilization, and business planning.

Specializing in large-scale infrastructure building projects, such as hospitals, schools, bridges, and towers, PCL relies on a staff of thousands of geographically dispersed employees to carry out these initiatives. Employees perform a wide range of activities for an ever-changing roster of clients, and PCL works to continually improve its workforce utilization in order to maximize revenues while delivering on client demands. It recognized an opportunity to centralize hours and activity data for enterprise reporting, and went to market looking for a capable time and attendance system.

Top of mind was the ability to track and approve staff timecards for all projects across the United States and Canada. The primary goal was to streamline a dated and inefficient process. The convenience and simplicity of an application was also front of mind, because staff were often at remote construction sites and could not be pulled away at any length to learn or use a new software system. PCL selected WorkForce Software's EmpCenter based on superior scores in these and other selection criteria.

"We needed a solution that was intuitive and easy for employees to use from anywhere, to record time and properly allocate it to the correct project cost accounts, and EmpCenter topped our list," said Kevin Sundquist, relationship manager, at PCL Construction. "Its simple design, clear prompts and ability to integrate with other systems will minimize the effort for time entry."

EmpCenter will also streamline overtime pay calculations and other labor compliance requirements across numerous states and provinces. These efficiency gains will help PCL dedicate even more resources towards client projects, and bolster the company's growth.

"Like many other progressive large-scale companies, PCL recognizes the value in automating time and attendance to improve workforce planning, optimize costs and better serve its clients," said Kevin Choksi, co-founder and CEO of WorkForce Software. "We are excited to partner with PCL to help them further improve labor efficiency and benefit from the visibility that EmpCenter delivers."

About PCL Construction
PCL is a group of independent construction companies that carries out work across Canada, the United States, the Caribbean, and in Australia. These diverse operations in the civil infrastructure, heavy industrial, and buildings markets are supported by a strategic presence in 31 major centers. Together, these companies have an annual construction volume of more than $7.5 billion, making PCL the largest contracting organization in Canada and one of the largest in North America.
