WINDSOR, Ontario, Sept. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – A Canadian winery is the first in North America as it launches the IHUBApp (the latest in Progressive Web App Technology) to help engage with visitors and staff. Cooper’s Hawk Vineyards (located in Canada’s Essex Pelee Island Coast Wine region) partnered with InspireHUB Technologies to take the engagement of their visitors to a new level.
“Winery owners understand the importance of building an ongoing dialogue with visitors because it leads to relationships and loyalty,” explains Karolyn Hart, Co-Founder and COO of InspireHUB Technologies. “The IHUBApp gives wineries the tools they need to create that personal dialogue and our automated tools help save time communicating with those clients. Our multi-faceted tool also helps streamline internal communications which is another advantage that every winery owner will find enticing. As they say in the wine business, it is a perfect pairing for both your front-of-house and back-of-house communication needs.”
Tom O'Brien is the founder of Cooper's Hawk Vineyards and knows first-hand the challenges of turning the dream of a winery into the reality of a profitable business. As the Past President of EPIC (Essex Pelee Island Coast Wine Growers Association), Chairman of the Southwest Ontario Tourism Corporation and the Vice-Chair of the Winery and Growers Alliance of Ontario, he's had a front row seat to plenty of innovation.
"Our team was attracted to the simplicity of the IHUBApp and how it put the power of communicating online back into our hands," explains Tom. "The flexibility of the tool has allowed us to use it as our website, our app, and our internal employee portal. It's an affordable solution that has impressed our entire staff and provided us with a sophisticated way to engage our visitors."

Dallas Texas, September 20, 2016 – Today InspireHUB Technologies announced the release of their free whitepaper, ‘The Future of Civic Apps’. The latest whitepaper teaches civic administrators and elected officials how Progressive Web App technology can provide smart cities with the ability to meet numerous community engagement needs.
Creating native apps as a way to increase civic engagement has been an aspiration held by most cities and towns but the costs associated with development has been prohibitive for both large and small communities. How costly? Government Digital Service in Great Britain estimates it saved $8.2bn USD by opting to not use native apps over the last four years! In 2016, a significant technology shift happened with the arrival of PWA technology. These new robust Progressive Web Apps cost a fraction of traditional native apps and boast double-digit engagement numbers while offering many of the same features. This includes features such as: offline accessibility when there is no internet or Wi-Fi available, universal access across all hardware devices ensuring no constituents are inadvertently left out, and compliance with regulatory issues such as accessibility standards and election campaign adherence.
“Building intelligent communities through digital inclusion is something that is shown to have numerous positive impacts and make cities work better,” explains Karolyn Hart, COO of InspireHUB Technologies. “Taking the most important engagement elements of your community and putting it directly into the hands of residents via mobile allows you to have two-way, real-time interactions. The affordability of this technology means that large cities can fully engage with residents and be confident they are fully optimizing tax-payer dollars while small communities can finally afford to access cutting edge apps. It’s a win-win no matter the size of the community.”

Dallas Texas, August 12, 2016 – A Canadian town is the first to have bragging rights in North America as it launches the latest in Progressive Web App Technology to engage with its local residents. The Town of Tecumseh is located in Ontario, Canada and worked with InspireHUB Canada (a subsidiary of InspireHUB Technologies, the creator of the IHUBApp) to create a personalized web app experience for its residents.
“Progressive Web Apps are particularly well-suited to meeting the needs of cities and towns with their compliance requirements and their needs for citizen engagement,” explains Karolyn Hart, COO of InspireHUB Technologies.
“The Town of Tecumseh is always looking at new ways to reach residents and continue to communicate the work we do for them. We have three main priorities to engage our residents: communication, compliance, and reach,” explains Mayor Gary McNamara of Tecumseh. “When we learned about the IHUBApp and saw that residents controlled their app experience by joining the channels they are interested in, we felt that was a game changer. Using the latest technology means we can make the app available to anyone who has a browser. More residents can participate in this experience rather than those with certain phones.”
The IHUBApp comes standard with a number of features and tools aimed at increasing the engagement between residents, administration and elected officials including the ability to: participate in real-time polls and surveys, register for events, create private channels for sensitive communications like economic development files, determine the frequency of notifications, fundraising and volunteer management tools, along with allowing all users the ability to upload their own content for sharing through the app.
The Tecumseh App can be accessed by visiting www.tecumsehapp.ca in your mobile browser and following the prompts to add to your home screen.
