  • Gleneagles Global Hospitals Launches #TAKEITTOHEART Campaign on the Occasion of World Heart Day
    Mumbai, Sep 21: Gleneagles Global Hospitals (a Parkway Pantai Enterprise) launches #TAKEITTOHEART, a 360 degree campaign under their heart health initiative 'LET IT BEAT' on the occasion of World Heart Day 2017. This will be a month-long multi-channel campaign for World Heart Day. The mass awareness campaign will highlight the lesser known serious condition 'Heart Failure' and its various stages. The concept behind the campaign #TAKEITTOHEART arises from many kinds of disappointments and disasters that one comes across in life and gets affected by taking them to the heart. The idea emerges from the customary response to a failure - "It's okay. Don't take it to heart." The campaign urges people to not take things to heart expect heart failure, which should be taken seriously and treated through medical intervention. A progressively degenerative heart disease, heart failure is quite different from heart attacks or cardiac arrests. The campaign weaves in various channels such as digital, radio, social welfare, and community health initiative and in-clinic communication to engage with maximum audiences across the country. Through videos and radio in-call shows, this campaign will urge people to share stories of characters in their lives who take to heart the smallest of hurdles or failures. The best story wins a free cardiac check-up at Gleneagles Global Hospitals. Through the social welfare platform, the hospital aims to bring together the citizens of a particular city to save the heart of the city. An installation is the starting point for this leg of the campaign. A large heart, representing the heart of the city, will be put up at prominent locations in the city. People will be invited to write their message to the city, describing what they will do to not let it fail. The messages will be written on sheets of paper resembling a Band-Aid, which will be stuck to the heart. Commenting on the campaign, Ramesh Krishnan, CEO India Operations Division, Parkway Pantai said, "Our endeavour at Gleneagles Global Hospitals has always been to create awareness around life threatening diseases and its causes. Through our nationwide campaign #TAKEITTOHEART, we aim to reach out to the masses and urge upon the need of not ignoring the initial symptoms of heart failure; a step towards saving oneself from serious heart ailments. Through our series of initiatives, our focus has been on creating a movement to promote healthy living; ensuring quality healthcare services."

  • GoDaddy Launches Business Hosting for Fast-growing Small Businesses in India
    New Delhi, Sep 21: GoDaddy Inc. (NYSE: GDDY), the world's largest cloud platform dedicated to small, independent ventures, today expanded its hosting services with the launch of its Business Hosting platform in India. GoDaddy Business Hosting is a high performance and easy-to-manage hosting platform that is fully optimized for high-traffic websites, e-commerce and resource-heavy websites. GoDaddy Business Hosting is the latest in the company's efforts to expand its products for small businesses who need advanced solutions with more power, but may not have deep technical expertise to manage it. Non-tech-savvy customers will breathe a sigh of relief knowing that they can get the server-level performance they need without delving into the technical complexities of server administration. A small business's resource needs increase rapidly once their website becomes a high-traffic destination. As a small business grows, they build e-commerce capabilities, upload resource-heavy data such as videos and high resolution photos, and add advanced features and functionality to their websites. All this results in slower page load times or slower processing power, particularly when the website is sharing resources with other websites as it happens with shared hosting. Site speed is critically important for growing businesses as faster page loads means lower bounce rates and higher average time on the website, eventually impacting the conversion rate. Google uses web page speed as one of the factors to determine page ranking which means web page load time will tend to rank higher. To address these growing needs, today customers have the option to move from Shared Hosting to a Virtual Private Server or a Dedicated Server. Managing or administering a server requires a high level of technical expertise, a steep learning curve, and can be time-consuming. Based on active customer dialogue as a part of GoDaddy's Customer Engagement Program, we know that customers want to focus on growing their businesses instead of fixing or managing server-related issues which could derail their productivity. GoDaddy's Business Hosting platform is built from the ground up on iterative customer feedback. The platform offers the unique advantages of combining the power of server (dedicated RAM, Storage and allocated core processors) with simplified and easy-to-use cPanel, the industry leading control panel. According to a recent ASSOCHAM report, adoption of advanced digital technologies by small businesses can lead to an increase in revenues by up to 27% and enhanced access to international markets by up to 65%[1].
