Luke Panza Partners to Strengthen SLN National Expansion

Luke Panza, to Strengthen Smarter LifeStyle Network National Expansion

PITTSBURGH, PA. March 28, 2017 – GenOne Media Group, producers of Smarter LifeStyle Network (www.smarterlifestylenetwork.com) announced today that Luke Panza is partnering with GenOne to further develop their growing portfolio of national accounts and expand into Healthcare.  Luke Panza brings a wealth of experience as the Co-Founder of Nowait, the service for casual dining restaurants that allows restaurant patrons to join restaurant waitlists without leaving the house.  Nowait was acquired by Yelp in 2017.

Luke will partner with Smarter LifeStyle Network to expand the firm’s recent success providing an educational and engaging waiting experience for patients in health care and various other locations.  Custom content synced to tablets and monitors in waiting areas provides programming to educate patients on health, wellness and lifestyle topics.  Tablets are handed to patients to begin the check-in process and complete a patient survey.  Tablets integrate into the waiting experience as patients/consumers click to learn more about the venue or read educational content and even send coupons to their phones for use after their visit.

“I am excited to work with the GenOne Media Group team to expand Smarter LifeStyle Network and to further develop their already extensive list of health, dental and beauty venues.  GenOne has identified a clear opportunity to engage an otherwise disengaged set of consumers – people sitting in waiting rooms – and provide incremental service and value,” said Panza.

Christine Martier, President and CEO said, “Luke’s sales and marketing background with Nowait, and his experience with managing waiting consumers, makes him a key addition to the Smarter LifeStyle Network family. Our new innovations and increasing demand from customers led us to look for an addition to our team that would fit in with our company’s commitment to growth and leadership in the marketplace.”

GenOne Media Group has spent years developing the optimum consumer experience network.  They have custom designed the graphic user interface to be inviting, not intimidating.

Although all this technology is important, it is only a vehicle to provide the best user experience while maximizing new revenue potential for their venue partners.

Gen One Media Group is made up of designers, developers, marketers, sales and support experts.  They are proud to be a community of individuals who care about changing the conversation for consumers while they wait.  GenOne is a team of people who partner with businesses to help them to achieve their goals and improve their profits.

Happy Oral Health Day

Oral Health Magazine recently shared a post about the global public oral health.

Smarter LifeStyle Network allows dentists to educate patients through videos and interactive tablets where patients can learn more about the latest best oral health practices.

This article appeared originally on March 20,2017 at Oral Health. Thank you to Oral Health Magazine for giving us permission to share with our audience. 

“Today on World Oral Health Day, FDI World Dental Federation is myth busting what people around the world believe to be good oral health practices, encouraging them to become better informed and take action. Oral health is integral to our general health and well-being; impacting every aspect of our lives.

The results from a survey carried out in 12 countries, by YouGov on behalf of FDI, exposed a significant gap between what people believe to be good oral health practices, versus what they actually do. Eight of the countries reported that 50 percent or more of the people surveyed think it is important to brush your teeth straight after every main meal. Brazil, Mexico, Egypt and Poland were the worst offenders of this incorrect oral health practice (84%, 81%, 62% and 60% respectively). FDI recommends waiting at least 30 minutes after eating to brush your teeth to avoid weakening tooth enamel.
“These survey results highlight an alarming discrepancy between knowledge and actual good oral health practices,” said Dr Patrick Hescot, FDI President. “We want everyone to take control of their oral health this World Oral Health Day and understand that by adopting good oral hygiene habits, avoiding risk factors and having a regular dental check-up, they can help protect their mouths. A healthy mouth allows us to speak, smile, smell, taste, touch, chew, swallow and convey a range of emotions with confidence and without pain, discomfort and disease. Good oral health matters and translates to a better quality of life.”

Smarter LifeStyle Tips: Recognizing the Importance of Rest

Thank you to Spirituality & Health Magazine for allowing us to share their tips for a Smarter LifeStyle with our readers.  Recognizing the Importance of Rest

By: Kalia Kelmenson

We are a culture of go-getters. Often we feel guilty for taking a break and stepping away from our work. Recent research shows that it may be that stepping away is the very thing we need in order to be more creative and productive.

When you have had a long day at the office, you may be tempted to drop into the couch with a glass of wine and the remote control, but this form of turning off may not be the one that actually restores you. In his recent book Rest: Why you Get More Done when you Work Less, Alex Soojung-Kim Pang explores the world of deeply restorative and deliberate down time. It turns out that tapping into your creative potential includes some very important acts of tuning out the focused mind. Try these new ideas for rest the next time you feel empty of ideas or energy:

By Stacey Sobel, Salon Today:

 

“While clients are waiting in your reception area or biding their time while their chemical services are processing, they are a captive audience. That is the perfect time to educate them on your salon’s latest services and products, while also entertaining them with beauty, wellness and lifestyle news.
A new technology developed by Gen One Media Group is helping salons better entertain, educate and market to clients, all while providing a new revenue stream to the salon.The technology, Smarter LifeStyle Network, delivers the latest in health, beauty and fashion news through tablets handed to clients upon check in and television monitors in the reception and processing areas. The system also allows salons to showcase themselves through a digital stylebook, client surveys, and contest and promotion news. In addition, Gen One sells and features advertising from like-minded companies on the system, and shares a percentage of the revenue with the salon.Emilio Cornacchione and Gino Chiodo, owners of Izzazu Salon, Spa and Serata in Pittsburgh, PA, were one of the earliest adopters of the program, and Cornacchione recently took some time to discuss the new technology as well as his client’s reaction to it with Salon Today:

Jamie Newman | January 30, 2017 | 11:20 AM
“With a disposable eye shadow sponge applicator, I pressed in the beautiful bright green from Aqua Pear Eye Color Trio to the center of the eye lid,” Skubis says. “When viewed from different angles, the multiple colors shift from the dark brown to the bright metallic green. So pretty!”
Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year is Greenery, a vibrant yellow-green, and according to Pantone, the color is meant to celebrate new beginnings and the desire to rejuvenate and revitalize.Green symbolizes life, energy, ambition, harmony, financial success and more, an ethereal and inspiring outlook for the year ahead.Dare to experiment with shades of nature’s neutral color—from bright key lime to toned-down sage—in clients’ beauty looks. Whether it be a twist on a smokey eye, blend of bold hair color, emerald manicure or swipe of jade eyeliner, green can give an unexpected pop to a guest’s look who typically stays within a range of neutral hues.”

Krista Foster, Amy Wingrove, Kimberly Phillips, all VPs at GenOne Media Group, producer of Smarter LifeStyle Network, showed their support for the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women.

According to the American Heart Association’s GoRedForWomen.org website:

FACTS ABOUT HEART DISEASE IN WOMEN

Do you know what causes heart disease in women? What about the survival rate? Or whether women of all ethnicities share the same risk?

The fact is: Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. That’s approximately one woman every minute!

But it doesn’t affect all women alike, and the warning signs for women aren’t the same in men. What’s more: These facts only begin to scratch the surface.

There are several misconceptions about heart disease in women, and they could be putting you at risk. The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement advocates for more research and swifter action for women’s heart health for this very reason. In this section, we’ll arm you with the facts and dispel some myths – because the truth can no longer be ignored.”

There is much more information available at the American Heart Association’s website .
