A partnership for improving scalability and productivity
Doddle is planning to grow from 80 stores to several hundred in 2017. Key to that goal is the ability to scale device and app deployment and to keep its mobile fleet updated and secure with MobileIron Cloud.

“We have ambitious growth plans for 2017 and will be increasing the reach of our services globally,” said O’Connor. “Ensuring that we have efficient processes for updating our technology while keeping an inventory of all our mobile devices across a growing store estate is operationally imperative and MobileIron and Appurity are key partners in helping us manage this.”

40 Years and Still Rocking – MANIC PANIC® Celebrates ‘Manniversary’

New York, New York (PRWEB) June 29, 2017

Founded by punk rock visionaries and ultimate self-made women Tish and Snooky, MANIC PANIC® is proud to announce its fortieth year of creating iconic hair color and cutting-edge color cosmetics. What started out as a small punk-style boutique, selling everything from clothing to makeup on St. Mark’s Place in New York City, has become a leader in the hair and cosmetics industry, best known for its rebellious hues. To commemorate the milestone, the brand will be celebrating throughout 2017 with some dynamic launches including a limited-edition Manniversary hair color in honor of its ‘dyehard’ fans.

The “herstory” of Tish and Snooky is a tale that exemplifies the American dream. As successful women entrepreneurs, the founders of Manic Panic are true pioneers who pave the way for generations of girls.

The two sisters grew up in the Bronx and were raised single-handedly by their mother, she herself the daughter of immigrants. It didn’t matter that they had little money as she gave them an abundance of unconditional love and encouragement to live their dreams.

From the time they were schoolgirls they began performing as singers, letting their creative juices fly and designing their own costumes. Their flamboyant style grew without boundaries as they hit the stages in the avant-garde music scene in 1970’s NYC. People were always asking them where they got their wild outfits so they got the idea to open their own boutique to sell what they loved to wear. Thus, MANIC PANIC was born on July 7, 1977, the name was coined by their mother.

The duo proudly ran their business without professional guidance, attracting rock ‘n’ roll royalty including David Bowie, Cher, The Ramones and Cindy Lauper. While members of Blondie’s original lineup, Tish and Snooky introduced their now-famous vibrant hair dyes along with matching color cosmetics for lips, nails and eyes, in hues that extend beyond the rainbow. As the line grew, so did their popularity, and soon enough they began distributing to major retailers directly from the MANIC PANIC boutique. Since then, the company has opened three official MANIC PANIC salons and expanded internationally with distribution reaching every major city on the globe.

“Hair and makeup play a big role in the rock ‘n’ roll industry,” says Snooky. “It inspires people of all generations to express themselves in their own way. We’ve seen everything from rainbow hair to glitter lips and eyebrows.”

“We are thrilled to be celebrating 40 years in business,” says Tish. “The success and support over the past four decades has been so much greater than we could have hoped, we’re excited to see what the next 40 have in store!”

Featured in books, films and rock videos, MANIC PANIC has solidified itself as a cultural icon. Worn on high-fashion models and celebrities alike, its colors can be spotted on A-listers such as Katy Perry, Rihanna, Jared Leto and Lady Gaga. Over the course of 2017, MANIC PANIC will be adding to its already extensive line with launches including the Hair Freshener Dry Shampoo, Coffin Dust shade extensions, Blue Lightning Bleach Kit and its newest line, MANIC PANIC® Professional.

Today, Tish and Snooky still share their love and encouragement with the world. They continue to give back, encouraging young girls to live their dreams as their mother encouraged them. They also support numerous charities from fighting breast cancer and animal cruelty, to donating to artist scholarships.

About MANIC PANIC:

Tish & Snooky’s® MANIC PANIC® NYC began on 7/7/77, when two N.Y.C.-born sisters, Tish and Snooky, added some extra ambition to their rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle. At the time, the sisters were singers in the original Blondie lineup, and few of the people who helped to ignite the late 70’s PUNK scene would have ever dreamt of the company's current acceptance by the mainstream.

Tish & Snooky, dubbed “The Martha Stewarts of Punk”, still rock the Manic Panic® lifestyle. “We don’t just sell it, we live it!”

ENGEL ICE Outperforms All Competitors In Independent Review

Jupiter, Fla. (PRWEB) June 29, 2017

Anglers, hunters, outdoor enthusiasts and road-trippers alike can keep their provisions colder for longer periods of time with ENGEL Cooler and Freezer Paks, which boast ENGEL’s proprietary dry ice replacement solution. A recent independent review pitted ENGEL Cooler and Freezer Paks, which utilize a Phase Change Material technology developed by Dr. Cliff Glade in 2010, against top competitors and ENGEL outperformed the competition. The full review can be seen here at http://www.coolersonsale.com/best-ice-packs-for-coolers/

ENGEL, the leader in AC/DC fridges and freezers, high performance roto-molded coolers, vacuum insulated drink ware, outdoor adventure gear and soft-sided coolers for more than a half a century, is thrilled to make their Cooler and Freezer Paks, the highest performing ice replacement in the industry, available to consumers at select sporting good retailers and online at http://www.engelcoolers.com.

THE SCIENCE AND HISTORY BEHIND ENGEL ICE:

ENGEL Cooler and Freezer Paks utilize a Phase Change Material (PCM). A phase change is defined as a transition between liquid and solid, like ice, or a transition between solid and gas, like dry ice. When a PCM like the one in ENGEL Cooler and/or Freezer Paks freezes, it releases a large amount of energy and does so at a relatively constant temperature. When a PCM melts, it absorbs a large amount of heat from the environment and does so at a relatively constant temperature. The PCMs used in ENGEL products have been engineered to solidify at different temperatures allowing them to maintain a constant exact temperature in the frozen or refrigerated range necessary to provide optimum cooling.

The PCMs ENGEL has chosen to ensure optimum performance were originally developed for the medical community. Portable blood banks used PCMs to maintain precise temperatures required to store and transport blood, allowing blood to remain with patients in the critical hours following surgery. Today, the largest health care services in the world use the same insulated PCMs that ENGEL brings to consumers. The precise and reliable cooling that hospitals trust keeps cooler contents cold for days. In fact, ENGEL Freezer Paks have added to the success and influence of ENGEL’s MHD13F-DM, a Fridge-Freezer designed by ENGEL to meet the needs of the EMS market for the transport of temperature-sensitive medications or storage of cold saline solution for induced hypothermia.

All ENGEL ICE products are non-toxic, non-hazardous, re-usable for up to five years and can maintain a sub-zero temperature “charge” in a freezer or other insulated environment for an extended period of time. The Engel Cooler Pak, which is available in medium and large size options, is an ideal cooler companion to keep contents chilled and dry. It works great in lunch boxes, beach coolers, soft sided coolers and cold shipping and it extends the life of traditional bagged ice allowing users to enjoy recreational sports without the mess of melted ice. Or, users can select the Engel Freezer Pak, also available in medium and large, which will keep keep cooler contents colder than ice for days. The hard-shell products retail for $19.99 for the medium, or $29.99 for the large, in either the Cooler Pak or Freezer Pak options.

“Often, a cooler is only as effective as what’s on the inside to keep provisions cool,” said Paul Kabalin, CEO of ENGEL Coolers. “Our ENGEL Cooler and Freezer Paks are the best way to ensure optimum chilling out of your ENGEL Cooler. Hospitals across the country trust our Paks, and we know ENGEL Cooler customers crave and deserve that same level of performance.”
