As we celebrate the 2 years of our
Catchyoo blog, as we take new promising directions at LM3LABS, we hire
new people, we prepare new amazing products, it was time to re-align
our blogging strategy too.
The new blog is designed to reflect the innovation spirit carried by
LM3LABS for the last 5 years. The LM3LABS blog is more product neutral,
covering all products while leaving room to the future products and
corporate and business news.
Simpler, wider, it leaves space to video in hi-quality and to better graphics.
Visitors have direct access to the products, solutions or corporate
sites with visible buttons. They can also easily contact LM3LABS thru a
form which integrates into LM3LABS business flow.
RSS subscribtion has never been so easy. Please subscribe to stay tunes!
Also please change your bookmarks as the Catchyoo blog will dissapear on August 8th and no more posting will be made on it.
This primetime program is aimed at explaining new technologies to Japanese with guest stars as students. This is one of the best and most popular program in Japan.
The stars were presented AirStrike and they could play with the interactive system.
this world is small we were there with interactivity specialist Alvaro
Cassinelli from Tokyo University. He presented an interesting obstacle
detection helmet. On the picture below we see here LM3's Yumiko playing with the tool. We had plently of time
talking about user interaction, laser, products, collaboration...
Just to provide some ideas about the ambiance we post some pictures
which will not tell too much about the content... You will have to wait.
LM3LABS launch an innovative Partner Program mixing world-class channel management practices to new technologies. THEBLOG met with LM3 Japan Managing Director Yumiko Misaki to know more about it:
THEBLOG:"Hi Yumiko, the digital signage industry is pretty short-term focused, hectic and volatile, why such a Partner Program?"
Yumiko Misaki:"For the respect of our customers and best partners. We have developped a model which ranks our partners based on their capabilities in Marketing, Selling, Installing, Maintaining and creating Contents for Catchyoo systems so that end-customers can choose to work with the best of them".
Yumiko Misaki:"It is very important for all the Catchyoo community to recruit partners who bring the best value to the customer, convey the correct image, install in total security, generate value from the product more than only reselling but also share the same business risks than the Catchyoo people and their families.
THEBLOG:"Some partners may not be happy with this ranking, don't you think?"
Yumiko Misaki:"This program will help our best partners to sell more easily. At the end, we ask our partners to share the same dedicacy to quality, customer care, value and vision than LM3. It is made in total transparency. Good partners will be happy to receive Stars, poor partners will know what they should improve".
THEBLOG:"Concretely how does it work?"
Yumiko Misaki:"After ranking, our partners will receive individual certificate that they can use on their web sites, mail, brochures etc...".
THE BLOG:"Can't some indelicates counterfeit the certificates?"
Yumiko Misaki:"They will have hard time. Harder than selling our products! Certificates are protected."
THEBLOG:"How do you do this?"
Yumiko Misaki:"ha, ha, should I tell? Just a hint. We use technologies like encrypted Permalinks and online filigranes. I cannot tell more."
THEBLOG:"How do you reflect the changes, the raising stars and decaying 'Milky ways'?"
Yumiko Misaki:"All is online. The revision is quarterly, update done in a click".
THEBLOG:"You play the big company, don't you?"
Yumiko Misaki:"We are very serious. Our people have been trained in multinational companies. The result is that we have the most professional solution on the market today, with innovative business models and marketing. Multinationals like Microsoft buy our solutions and we must be careful about who they meet. It is an end-to-end quality policy. Our distribution Partners are our best asset, we rely on them, we want to help them.".
THEBLOG:"Sounds like a Japanese permanent improvement practice... Yumiko, thank you".
