    Team offers free trial to streamline influencer management and help marketers focus on scale see more

    VICTORIA, B.C., July 18, 2017 -- Redbrick, Canada's second-fastest growing software company, announced today the release of their latest product, Assembly: a cloud-based application that allows brands and marketing agencies to manage all of their influencer marketing campaigns in one centralized location.

    Redbrick officially launched Assembly on Product Hunt in the early hours of Tuesday July 18th, and the team is now offering influencer marketing professionals a free 15-day trial to help manage and scale their campaign ROI with ease.

    "Whether it's at the brand or agency level, managing one influencer campaign is tedious and time-consuming enough, let alone managing dozens or even hundreds of them simultaneously," said Redbrick CMO Marco Pimentel. "Our goal with Assembly was to streamline influencer management by bringing all the moving parts together in one neat package to prove that it doesn't have to be hard to demonstrate ROI." 

    Influencer marketing is seeing an explosion in popularity, with 84% of marketers saying they planned on launching at least one influencer campaign during the next 12 months.

    "Brands across virtually every market are allocating major resources into leveraging the power of peer influence on social media by having their products promoted by celebrities and niche thought leaders alike while gaining organic, targeted exposure to their loyal social followers -- followers who already happen to be paying attention to what they have to say," said Assembly CEO Neil Henderson. 

    An attractive proposition indeed for those trying to reach audiences in an age where they're blinded by conventional ads and 47% of consumers are deploying ad blockers. Even more so considering it's been noted that consumers trust authentic content 92% more than traditional marketing tactics.

    Assembly is perfectly aligned with these trends, and the Redbrick team emphasizes their product's ability to prove ROI thanks to an intuitive interface and comprehensive features.

    Assembly is the technology that provides marketing teams with all the resources they might need across the entire campaign lifecycle. The influencer marketing platform has been referred to as the influencer CRM for marketers in search of a smarter way to manage their campaigns. Key features include influencer onboarding, campaign management, real-time analytics reporting and tracking, in-app payments, and more. 

    Redbrick is extending their free trial offer for all three Assembly package options. The Growth package, priced at $199/month, allows users to manage unlimited influencers, create up to 2 campaigns, send up to 100K clicks, collaborate with up to 5 other users, add up to 5 brands, pay influencers in-app, and dedicated account management.

    At $299/month, Assembly's Pro plan ups the campaign creation and click send, while offering unlimited team user collaborations and brand adds. 

    Designed for marketing teams with more robust influencer portfolios, the customizable $499/month and up Enterprise option offers unlimited feature use across the board. Enterprise users also gain access to several add-ons like expert templates and tips, custom white labeling, and a dedicated round-the-clock Account Manager. 

    Assembly is now available as of July 18, 2017. Those interested in trying Assembly free for the first 15 days can learn more by clicking here.

    Hardhat Wearables launches Localized Collaboration for Safer Remote Worksites at Enterprise Connect see more

    March 23, 2017

    Victoria, BC, Canada - Hardhat Wearables (https://hardhatwearables.com) a division of Priologic Software Inc. (https://priologic.com) is launching a localized collaboration platform for teams working on remote logging, oil and gas, construction and utilities worksites often with little or no Internet connectivity.

    The Hardhat Connect system consists of a local ruggedized collaboration server that is mounted in the crew truck or portable trailer or forests. Hardhat Connect delivers audio, video, screen sharing and telestration between team members wearing Head Mounted devices like Realwear's HMT-1 (Head Mounted Tablet), Fujitsu's Head Mounted Display, or carrying most recent Android devices, PC or Mac computers. Ruggedized Android-based phones and tablets are becoming widely available. The CAT S60 ruggedized phone and Sonim intrinsically safe phone are both widely used in the industry now.

    Priologic teamed with Iotatel Inc. who produce a wifi system that delivers high speed connectivity in the dense coastal rainforests of British Columbia. Doug Pelton, CEO of Priologic says, "The Iotatel team was referred to us by FPInnovations.ca to deliver localized internet in the forests of British Columbia. By leveraging Iotatel's system and our Hardhat Connect product, teams can stay connected while working in rugged and dangerous conditions. Getting a system to penetrate dense foliage is challenging, so we don't have too many competitors in this space." "With Hardhat Connect we hope to make safer working conditions by providing better communications between workers in these remote and dangerous sites. By far the largest number of accidents happen during the first year of work, so excellent communication between a new worker and a  supervisor or safety officer is critical," says Pelton.  

    See Priologic's Hardhat Wearables team at Enterprise Connect in booth 2401 from March 27-30 at Gaylord Palms, Orlando, Florida.
