IZ-ON Media Triples In-Pharmacy Marketing Footprint With Health Kiosks in Nearly 10,000 Drug and Grocery Locations

New higi-Stayhealthy(R) Partnership Selects IZ-ON Media(TM) as Ad Sales Representative

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/18/14 -- IZ-ON Media, a Technicolor company and in-store shopper marketing solutions leader, announced a multi-year agreement with higi, the leading provider of connected health screening kiosk networks at retail pharmacies. Higi and Stayhealthy® have recently joined forces, creating the largest network of this type in the U.S. IZ-ON Media will serve as the advertising sales representative for the combined higi Stayhealthy kiosk network, tripling its Health and Wellness footprint to nearly 10,000 locations. IZ-ON Media's Health and Wellness portfolio already included the Stayhealthy® HealthCENTER Kiosk Network, which is currently available in over 3,500 Kroger, Albertsons, SUPERVALU, Meijer, and HEB locations.

By mid-2015, higi expects to complete the chain wide deployment of its kiosks to 4,100 Rite Aid stores -- marking the first health station deployment and digital in-store media play in a national drugstore chain. Higi Stations are already located in the pharmacy area of over 1,800 Publix, Ahold, Fred's, Wakefern, and other grocery chains. Using the higi Stations, consumers can measure their weight, BMI, pulse, and blood pressure. They can also track their wellness progress anytime online or via the higi app, integrate their preferred fitness tracking device and/or app into the higi platform, and be rewarded and motivated for adopting healthier habits.

"Our network is growing as consumer health engagement becomes more habitual," said Richard Hirsch, higi's Senior Vice President of Marketing and Media. "Our collaboration with IZ-ON Media enables relevant and trusted brands to interact with a key consumer segment across the combined higi Stayhealthy network, when these consumers are directly engaged in their health and wellness. We think these opportunities create real wins for marketers, shoppers, and our retail partners."

"Adding higi to our portfolio continues the expansion of IZ-ON Media's Health and Wellness footprint and provides our valued brand partners with more targeted advertising opportunities that deliver meaningful results," said Kevin Carbone, Senior Vice President of Retail Partnerships at IZ-ON Media. "With its growing community of engaged users and premier retail partners, the combined higi Stayhealthy network fits well with our retail-focused strategy."

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing.

DevOps delivers remarkable results. But does it help all of IT? Can traditional ‘mode 1’ IT benefit as much as innovative ‘mode 2’? How about the rest of your business? Or have you just shifted your bottleneck? And if so, what can you do about it? Improving dev and ops is necessary, but not sufficient. It often just shifts the burden sideways (e.g., to PMs, SQA, InfoSec, DBAs, NOC, etc.), upstream (to the PMO, Controller, Business Liaison, etc.), or downstream (to TechPubs, Service Desk, Traini...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...
