Victory Electronic Cigarettes Corporation (OTCQB: ECIG), announced today that it has launched the first of its kind Advanced Vaping System, with pre-filled or closed clearomizers to major customers in the United States under its FIN® brand. The Advanced Vaping System, which builds off of the highly successful products that the Company markets in the UK under its VIP® and Vapestick® brands, is the first of its kind world-wide, and provides the flexibility to easily interchange between the newly launched pre-filled clearomizers, liquids and refillable clearomizers, or existing cartridge refills that are currently widely used in rechargeable electronic cigarettes.
Sold concurrently with the FIN® Advanced Vaping system unit, are the first of their kind, pre-filled or closed clearomizers in a range of different liquid flavors, including tobacco, menthol, coffee, vanilla, and others. These pre-filled clearomizers provide consumers the liquid system many vapers are increasingly trending toward, without any of the hassles, mess or risks associated with liquids and refilling clearomizers. The large format battery’s provide for days of use without recharging, and coupled with the pre-filled clearomizers that are 2.4 ml each per clearomizer, enable a full vaping system with significant plume and full vaping experience for consumers.
The FIN® Advanced Vaping System was developed in partnership with major retailers to provide them a product that was easy and low risk for them to merchandise and sell, and at the same time reverse potential channel migration to vaping shops. The product enables traditional Convenience, Food, Drug, and Mass retailers to be able to now sell a very similar product and system that vapers can get in specialty shops, and to one-up them with a fully flexible product that can handle any format of refill a consumer might want.
Gary Rawlings, Chief Commercial Officer of Victory, and former senior Marketing executive at Kraft (KFT) and Ahold (AH) said, “We are really excited about this product as it hits the perfect balance for consumers that don’t always like the mess and hassle of refilling clearomizers or tanks, yet gives them the full vaping experience that they desire. Retailers love it, because this new product is compatible with many of the existing vaping products they sell, and view this as kind of the K-cups of the electronic cigarette industry.”
The new Advanced Vaping system and portfolio of pre-filled flavored clearomizers are rolling out this summer to major retailers in the United States.

However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.

As pervasive as cloud technology is -- and as persuasive as the arguments are for using it -- the cloud has its limits. Some companies will always have security concerns about storing data in the cloud and certain high-transaction applications will always be better suited for on-premises storage. Those statements were among the bottom-line takeaways delivered at Cloud Expo this week, a three day, bi-annual event focused on cloud technologies, adoption and associated challenges.
