"I am excited to work with the super talented team at nFusz to incorporate their Notifi interactive video platform into our upcoming '15 minute hyper-auctions' as well as some exciting new auction gamification features we're introducing," states Ketan Thakker, CEO of uBid.com. "This is part of our new marketing initiatives to introduce a younger demographic to the multitude of benefits of incorporating online auctions into their shopping habits, and at the same time, energize our 6 million loyal shoppers and growing list of merchant partners. The nFusz interactive video technology coupled with our state of the art auction capabilities will place us at the forefront of the next generation of online auction shopping," continues Mr. Thakker.
"We're very excited to work with Ketan and his team at uBid.com," states Rory J. Cutaia, nFusz CEO. "Introducing interactive video into the online auction process is brilliant. I think it's a game-changer for the entire online auction space as it's engaging, entertaining, current, and together with the gamification elements Ketan is introducing, I believe it can result in meaningful new value for uBid.com shareholders as well as our own," continues Mr. Cutaia.
