COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwired - Oct 30, 2013) - GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (OTCQB: GWIV) (OTCBB: GWIV) (the "Company") (www.GlobalWiseInvestments.com) and its wholly owned subsidiary Intellinetics, Inc., a leading-edge technology company focused on the design, implementation and management of cloud-based Enterprise Content Management ("ECM") systems in both the public and private sectors, today announced its participation in the 2013 Innovation Fair in Tokyo, Japan, from October 29th through November 1st.
GlobalWise, along with Technology United (www.technologyunited.com) ("TU") partners MWAi, Intel and LMI, are contributing to MWAi's powerful Innovation Fair series focused on emerging best practice solutions for the office technology, imaging channel and beyond. MWAi's status as a SAP Gold Partner launching their imaging channel focused version of SAP Business One - FORZA, adds a new level of excitement and industry interest to the entire Innovation Fair events agenda. FORZA answers the growing need among Office Technology and Imaging Channel businesses struggling to gain and maintain competitive operating advantages with disparate, non-integrated business management systems.
As a Technology United member and co-chair of its Product Roadmap Committee, Matthew Chretien, the Interim President and CEO of GlobalWise, is taking advantage of this one of a kind event to educate the market, our partners, dealers and manufacturers on the IntellivueGX™ platform as the ECM engine for MWAi's SAP Business One FORZA platform for the Imaging Channel.
"The Innovation Fair highlights our commitment to, and value of, TU's mission to deliver intelligent, interconnected solutions to move business forward with our IntellivueGX™ platform," said Mr. Chretien. "Our message will not only be shared through an open seminar format, but also in direct meetings with leading multi-function device manufacturers including Muratec, SAP, Sharp, Canon, Konica Minolta, Ricoh, and Oki Data."
"Intellivue™ as an integrated content management engine, is a powerful addition to the FORZA platform that will increase its value to the dealer channel," said Michael Stramaglio, President and CEO of MWA Intelligence. "In addition, the integration of Intellivue™ provides an opportunity for FORZA users to drive revenue by adding Intellinetics solutions to their customer base. Intellinetics/GlobalWise is an important strategic partner and integration of their platform into the FORZA platform is an important catalyst in our goal of transforming how business works in the Office Technology and Imaging Channel."
"GlobalWise/Intellinetics participation in the Innovation Fair in Tokyo is a powerful step in executing our channel strategy. As the global headquarters for many of the leading device manufacturers, establishing a direct relationship can be a catalyst for not only accelerating dealer adoption in North America through OEM support, but also as a strategic planning step to expand distribution to the Asian markets," concluded Mr. Chretien.
