Locaid Works With U.S. Cellular to Drive Location-Based Mobile Innovation in BYOD Apr 21, 2014 08:16AM

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 21, 2014

Locaid, the world's largest Location-as-a-Service (LaaS) company, today announced that U.S. Cellular customers who give consent are now locatable on Locaid's enterprise location platform. The companies have been working together since January 2013 and commercially launched the service earlier this year following a successful beta period.

The integration of U.S. Cellular highlights the growing importance of "Bring-Your-Own-Device" (BYOD). Enterprise CIOs, tasked with managing a growing variety of employee devices on multiple networks, now face ever increasing complications with the rise of the no-contract phone. With more consumers than ever before choosing to go with a monthly plan, Location-Based Services (LBS) offered via Locaid are emerging as central to minimizing the risks of enterprise BYOD. Use cases include effective mobile workforce management though geofencing and real-time notifications, and the use of location data as an additional layer of authentication to prevent the threat of information getting into the wrong hands when personal devices are being used.

By giving Locaid's enterprise customers access to U.S. Cellular's 4.9 million customers, including no-contract customers, U.S. Cellular is playing an increasingly important role in enabling BYOD for the country's mobile workforce.

"BYOD boasts impressive benefits, and location data helps minimize its risks," comments Rip Gerber, President & CEO, Locaid. "Working with U.S. Cellular gives our customers even further assurance that the privacy protected services they receive from us will support all their BYOD requirements."

Locaid customer 3Cinteractive, the mobile platform and services company that helps its clients link consumer engagement with business value, is taking advantage of the U.S. Cellular connection for its enterprise mobile applications. "Locaid helps 3C redefine mobile with location," comments John Duffy, CEO, 3Cinteractive. "Locaid not only continues to provide 3C with the highest level of customer service but the addition of U.S. Cellular means we can continue to deliver industry leading mobile solutions to our customers."

Former Blue Diamonds Join Cause to Make the Home a Healthier Place to Raise a Family Apr 21, 2014 08:16AM

St. Augustine, FL (PRWEB) April 21, 2014

Russ and Melanie Jones, proven leaders in the network marketing arena, join powerhouse couples like Mick and Vick Karshner and Mike and Sahi Hernandez at Mommy's Club, a Healthy Home Company. Mommy's Club is a wholesale buying club that implements a direct-retailing approach to educate others on the importance of making toxin-free choices. They are one of the first large-scale social entrepreneurship businesses that offer exclusive products made from ToxicFree®, EcoCert® and organic ingredients, supporting their mission to make the home a healthier place to raise a family.

Russ and Melanie, seven-year veterans in the industry, have always been health-conscious, but it wasn't until several loved ones were dealing with illnesses that they learned about the effects and impact that chemicals have on health. It was a wake-up call to change their personal habits, create a better world for their grandchildren, and they felt a calling to share this mission with others. Russ, an airline pilot, and Melanie, an interior designer, always loved the relationship-building aspect of network marketing, and Mommy's Club provided the perfect environment for them to share this message.

"We feel blessed to have found a company with authentic leadership, filled with people that truly want to make a difference. From the support systems and communication with the field, to the high standards in product development and the ministries that are supported, we are so excited about where Mommy's Club is headed," said Melanie.

"Russ and Melanie are outstanding leaders devoted to nurturing and encouraging others to succeed," said Bill Glynn, CEO at Mommy's Club. "We are honored to have them join our field leadership ranks alongside fellow network marketing experts like Mike and Sahi Hernandez, Mick and Vick Karshner and countless others. Our cause, making the home a healthier place to raise a family, continues to attract purpose-driven entrepreneurs who believe not only in the opportunity, but in our mission."

Back By Popular Demand, First Triangle Appearance with Large Band in 4 Years Lyle Lovett and His Large Band at DPAC, Durham Performing Arts Center, August 27, 2014 Apr 21, 2014 08:15AM

Durham, NC (PRWEB) April 21, 2014

Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has evolved into one of music's most vibrant and iconic performers. His music, rich and eclectic, is one of the most beloved of any living artist working today. On August 27, 2014, DPAC, Durham Performing Arts Center, welcomes him back, marking Lyle Lovett's third appearance at DPAC.

Tickets go on sale Friday, April 25 at 12 p.m.:

"There is a closeness and intimacy when Lyle Lovett performs here," said Bob Klaus, GM for DPAC. "His connection to our audience is immediate, no matter what he offers from his extensive songbook."

A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Among his many accolades, besides four Grammy® Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association's inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was recently named the Texas State Musician.

Lovett's most recent album Release Me was released in February, 2012. The album was #1 for several weeks on the Americana charts. Produced by Nathaniel Kunkel and Lovett, Release Me represents the end of an era as it was his last record for Curb/Universal Music Group, having been on the label for his entire career. Release Me is quintessential Lyle, mixing a smart collection of originals and songs written by some of his favorite songwriters that show not only the breadth of this Texas legend's deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most infectious and fascinating musicians in popular music.

Lovett has appeared in 13 feature films, and on stage and television.
