COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - Jan 17, 2013) - GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (OTCBB: GWIV) (OTCQB: GWIV) (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 announce a speaking engagement for William J. "BJ" Santiago, CEO of GlobalWise, at the prestigious Technology United Executive Connection Summit.
The Technology United Executive Connection Summit (www.technologyunited.com) is being held in Scottsdale, AZ, from January 22nd - 24th. Other speakers scheduled to deliver a presentation at the event include Konica, SAP and the Technology United Alliance members: Intel, Newfield IT, GreatAmerica Financial Services, LMI, ESP, Green Hills Software, Barrister and GreenPrint.
"We announced being accepted into the invitation-only Technology United organization this past summer and are very pleased to now be presenting at the summit this month," stated William J. "BJ" Santiago, CEO of GlobalWise. "The Alliance members and the office technology audience in attendance create a fantastic stage for us to grow our channel partnerships and expand the marketing of our cloud-based ECM strategies. This invitation-only conference is geared toward CEOs, Presidents and Senior Vice Presidents, with over 225 confirmed to be attending the 3-day event. I will be speaking in a session titled 'Channel Changer -- Click Charges for Document Management' to show how the integration of the Intellivue™ software into the copier and multi-function printer eco-system provides a new revenue source for the dealer community. More importantly, this unique approach enables a state-of-the-art ECM solution that finally fits seamlessly within their end-user procurement vessels under similar contracts such as Managed Print Service (MPS) or Document Managed Services (MDS).
"Many in the industry have called our flagship software a 'channel changer' because our user-friendly model is similar to the traditional per click charge standard, but introduces a fixed cost model that appeals to a wider customer base. Therefore, the end-user no longer has to worry about being charged more money for each mono (black and white), color or virtual image scan (i.e. Video, Audio, JPEG, PPT, Excel, etc.). Intellivue™ allows the end-user to scan both hard-copy and virtual images, as well as index, search, and retrieve archived data via the cloud, in the same model in which they buy their products today through their dealer. Instead of a per page or per click charge, there is simply a capacity based monthly subscription fee," concluded Mr. Santiago.
