COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - Jul 17, 2012) - GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (OTCBB: GWIV) (OTCQB: GWIV) ( 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 announce GlobalWise CEO William J. "BJ" Santiago will be a featured speaker and panelist at the esteemed World Expo 2012 Managed Print Summit to be held July 17 - 19 in Las Vegas.

The World Expo ( conference is the premier location for Managed Print Services (MPS) and Imaging industry executives and thought leaders. At the conference, attendees will be able to learn about the latest technology trends in the MPS industry on topics such as Business Management, Document & Print Management, Hardware & Supplies Solutions, Sales and Marketing, and Managed Network Solutions.

GlobalWise CEO William J. "BJ" Santiago has been chosen as one of the featured speakers at this prestigious event in a session titled "The Secret Sauce of ECM in the Copier World." In this discussion, Mr. Santiago will outline a forward-thinking approach for copier and imaging dealers who in the past have not had an ECM solution. Intellinetics' Intellivue software is a creative convergence of cloud-based technologies and click-charge ECM models, which allows dealers and OEM manufacturers to deliver a robust ECM solution without complexity or large capital expenditures.

"The World Expo 2012 is the premier managed print conference in the industry," stated Mr. Santiago. "I am proud to be chosen as a featured presenter at the conference. This is a huge validation of the cloud-based Intellivue software model for the copier industry. Our software represents a game-changing opportunity for the copier and imaging industry by implementing a pay-per-click charge for scanning and archiving documents through copier hardware. I will be sharing with them the 'secret sauce' for implementing a cost-effective ECM solution for their clients, while enabling new revenue opportunities for them and adding increasing value to their portfolio of services."

Mr. Santiago has also been requested to sit on a MPS Panel at the show titled "Making Money Without Print." The panel will be hosted by Mike Stramaglio, CEO of MWA Intelligence, who recently signed with GlobalWise as a Channel Partner. Other panelists will include senior executives from Toshiba, NewField IT and SolutionOne. This panel will focus on additional revenue opportunities for copier and imaging dealers outside of the traditional per-page charges they are able to collect.

"GlobalWise is moving into a much larger world of opportunity by presenting at this prestigious conference," concluded Mr. Santiago. "The entire MPS industry is seeking new revenue sources. Not only is ECM the solution, it gives their clients an incredible tool for managing documents that was previously unattainable at a reasonable price. The power of cloud delivery and the on-demand template based solution store of Intellivue will allow dealers to further enable long-term customer relationships and a new annuity profit center.
