Bonjour! Livefyre launches in France

“Today, Livefyre officially expands into France, marking our second European launch since we announced our UK presence in September 2013. Since then, we’ve garnered more than 25 European-based enterprise customers  including leading publishers and brands like News UK, Times Online, Unilever, The Sun, Fabulous, The Scottish Sun, Decca Records, Time Out Global, and Germany’s Motain”.

The list also includes several high-profile French customers, including Le Monde, Liberation, and M6.

“France has some of the most well-respected media brands in the world,” said Livefyre founder and CEO Jordan Kretchmer. “This high caliber of journalistic quality is complemented by the country’s growing appetite to engage in social media. We have found French publishers and brands eager to offer their readers and fans unparalleled social interactions on their own websites and apps.”

Livefyre accomplished this with the help of sales team outsourcing via Sales Force Europe.

BACtrack Mobile wins Australia’s Good Design Awards

A smartphone-connected breathalyzer has taken out the top consumer electronics prize at Australia’s Good Design Awards, beating a portable cinema camera, a Kickstarter-funded charging cable and the Leap Motion Controller for the top prize.

The device is compatible with both iOS and Android through a free app, which can save and share results and estimate when the user’s BAC will return to 0.00 per cent.

Designed in San Francisco, the BACtrack connects wirelessly to a smartphone via Bluetooth and uses “police-grade Xtend Fuel Cell Sensor Technology to offer the highest level of accuracy and consistency” when measuring Blood Alcohol Content, according to the creators.

A dedicated Consumer Electronics category included a broad range of product finalists, including the Jump Charging Cable, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and even a Braun shaver. However, the BACtrack Mobile Breathalyzer was awarded the Best in Category.

Sales Force Europe is proud to help BACtrack expand its customer base and lead generation through sales team outsourcing in Europe. Congrats guys!
