Kony's AppPlatform, combined with NRT and Sightline's Respective Technology Offerings, Will Lead the Casino Market Digital Transformation

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NRT Technology Corp. ("NRT") a leading provider of integrated ticket redemption and payment services to global casino operators, and Sightline Payments ("Sightline"), developers of the disruptive Play+ platform that's powering the next generation of cashless and mobile gaming payment solutions, announced today an exclusive agreement with Kony, Inc., the leading enterprise mobility and digital applications company. This combination creates an all-in-one, fully native app that will serve as the foundation platform for all casino operator omni-channel products and services, further reinforcing NRT and Sightline's mutual "Connecting the Guest Experience(TM)" strategy for a worldwide integrated resort casino industry.

"The collaboration with NRT and Sightline will ensure that their casino customers have access to the most advanced digital experiences available today," said Nate Bruce, Business Development & Alliances, Kony, Inc. "The Kony digital AppPlatform is designed to support all of the digital experiences that a casino guest could ever need and demand, today and in the future."

John Dominelli, CEO of NRT, said, "More casino operators are realizing the importance of mobile apps, but are also discovering that deploying, managing, and enabling apps for next generation products and services can be a very painful and unfulfilling endeavor. The gaming industry is filled with suppliers whose mobile systems don't integrate with one another, causing friction and disconnect between operators and their guests.  It is this 'broken' mishmash of mobile systems that Kony, NRT and Sightline have collectively addressed."

Casinos will for the first time have an enterprise mobile platform that will Connect the Guest Experience(TM) for loyalty, commerce, hospitality and gaming experiences.  

"Casino enterprises recognize the importance of a mobile experience for their guests," said Kirk Sanford, Chief Executive Officer of Sightline Payments.  "Unfortunately operators are faced with challenges around user experiences, costs, disparate systems, and management of their app which is stifling their ability to innovate. We think the timing couldn't be better to announce this deal with Kony because operators know that if they fail to innovate quickly they will become irrelevant in this digital era."

Kony's digital AppPlatform and NRT and Sightline's respective technology enhancements will integrate the following:

  • Property information portals and dynamic advertisement engagement
  • Physical and digital payment methods and resort wallets
  • Numerous forms of physical and mobile gaming
  • Social gaming
  • Cardless player loyalty
  • Casino Management Systems
  • Hospitality point of sale and property management systems
  • Experiential features like geofencing, chat bots for voice navigation, facial recognition, beacons, augmented reality, and in-app video for face-to-face experiences

Following the closing of the transaction, which remains subject to regulatory approvals, Sightline's CEO and Founder, Kirk Sanford, will assume the role of President and CEO of the combined entity, which will be named NRT Sightline.  NRT's current Founder, President and CEO, John Dominelli, will become Chairman and CTO of NRT Sightline.

Upon regulatory approval and final closing, NRT Sightline(TM) will be the global leader in the design and development of enterprise platforms for the casino industry.

Novel Preclinical Research Tools Provide Humanized Immune Response to Advance Immunotherapeutic Development, Live Webinar Hosted by Crown Bioscience19.10.2017 14:00Pressmeddelande

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crown Bioscience, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crown Bioscience International (TWSE:ticker 6554) and a global drug discovery and development services company providing translational platforms to advance oncology, inflammation, cardiovascular and metabolic disease research, announces a live webinar to be presented by Dr. Michelle Mack, Director of Global Scientific Engagement, entitled "Beyond Syngeneics - Novel Tools for Addressing Human Specificity in Immuno-Oncology." Checkpoint inhibitors like anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, and anti-CTLA-4 have revolutionized cancer treatment and have recently gained approval in several cancer types.

Crown Bioscience has generated innovative research models to address these obstacles early during preclinical drug development.

Perfectus Aluminum Inc. Responds to Trade Group19.10.2017 13:00Pressmeddelande

ONTARIO, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Perfectus Aluminum Inc. has issued the following: On October 12, 2017 the Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC), an industry group representing largely American aluminum extruders, posted to its blog a false narrative regarding a suit to which Perfectus Aluminum Inc. is a related party. The government is not "seeking unpaid duties from Perfectus for goods brought into the country." Rather, the government is attempting to use a 2017 Department of Commerce determination to assess retroactive antidumping duties on goods imported as early as 2011. It is discouraging that AEC would tout such an obviously egregious government overstep as a "victory" to their members and the industry: were it one of AEC's own members facing such an obvious violation of fair play and due process, it would rightfully argue that government overreach is a threat to manufacturers everywhere. In addition to the hypocrisy of the AEC's promotion of this case, its s
