OINK ANNOUNCES CHANNEL PARTNER PROGRAM EXPANSION

Innovative payment solution partners with award-winning e-commerce solutions provider

Virtual Piggy, Inc. (OTCQB:VPIG), provider of Oink, the award-winning payment technology for families and teens, today announced that it has partnered with commerce solutions provider Gorilla Group.

Oink is the only payment technology designed to allow retailers and game publishers to reach under 21 consumers in a safe, legal and effective manner compliant with the FTC and other international regulations. This innovative technology serves as a digital family wallet that is available online or via mobile and allows safe, secure transactions – all within parental controls.

Gorilla, an eBay Magento Partner of the Year, is an award-winning commerce service provider that assists a variety of clients such as Franklin, Bonobos, Zynga (retail), and Movado. As an e-commerce solutions provider, Gorilla is aligned to help leading B2B and direct-to-consumer brands succeed online. Gorilla has also been named a two-time Partner Excellence recipient, and is the recipient of three Webby awards.

"Oink has taken the desire that parents have to give their kids the freedom to spend their allowance as they choose, yet still allow them to oversee what their kids are buying. It's pure genius. Oink found a niche in the overcrowded payments space and they are serving it extremely well," said Caleb Bryant, Head of eCommerce at Gorilla.

“As a results-orientated industry leader, Gorilla is an excellent addition to our Channel Partner Program. With their in-depth knowledge of the Magento platform and broad client base, we look forward to working together to further expand the footprint of Oink payments to e-commerce sites nationwide,” said Dr. Jo Webber, CEO & Founder of Oink.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things').

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data.

It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
