AUSTIN, Texas - March 7, 2016 - PRLog -- PicPocket, a live events’ geofencing platform which enables the real-time capture, curation, mining and visualization of location-based content, announces the appointment of James ‘Jim’ Carpenter to Vice President of Partnerships.

Jim is a senior, Broadcast and Media Entertainment executive who has built a career out of designing and delivering enterprise-scale technology solutions for global Fortune 500 companies. His proven track-record for developing and managing successful partnerships is a direct reflection of his strong technology background, thirty years of business experience and the ability to identify and effect simple solutions through the creative use of IT.

“We are excited to have Jim on board to promote PicPocket with digital media properties, venues and brands alike,” stated Wolfram Gauglitz, President and CEO of PicPocket, Inc. “His understanding of what is important and valuable to global Broadcast and Media companies will help position PicPocket with leaders in the content and media space. We look forward to leveraging the strong relationships he has developed with industry leaders over the years.”

“PicPocket is as unique a platform as it is an application,” explains Carpenter. “When you consider how early they were in carving out their approach to geofencing-based, content curation, it’s a wonder that #hashtags or event-codes caught on at all. It’s the evolution of photo-sharing. Now with augmented reality capabilities, PicPocket has all the building blocks necessary to deliver an effortless, interactive user experience the likes of which event-goers will come to expect from live events.”
