GenOne Media Group Announces New Vice President Healthcare Sales

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.

Smarter LifeStyle Network Review by Owners of Izzazu in Salon Today

Read about Smarter LifeStyle Network as reported from Stacey Soble, Editor of “Salon Today” as she interviewed Emilio Cornacchione and Gino Chiodo, owners of Izzazu Salon, Spa and Serata in Pittsburgh, PA.
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:

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 .
