NEENAH, Wis., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pull-Ups Brand, parents' potty training partner for nearly 25 years, is kicking off the New Year with a new high-tech tool to help the approximately 4 million moms who will start potty training this year make the process more fun and easy. The brand has launched a new and exciting app - the Pull-Ups® Big Kid App. It is a fun mobile tool that integrates imagination and reality via augmented reality technology to keep mom and child motivated throughout the potty training process.

To provide extra motivation for Moms and tots to start potty training and share their first flush... and every flush after... successes, Pull-Ups is launching a fun consumer call-to-action. Parents can go to Facebook.com/Pull-Ups and upload an image of their tot's first flush moment for a chance to have their picture posted on a billboard in the middle of New York City's Times Square, during a larger-than-life celebration on Jan. 29. In addition, by uploading the photo, one lucky family will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to a world-famous Orlando destination.

"Moms see potty training as a pain in the neck, so they delay starting the process or they start and stop if setbacks occur," said Pete Sawin, Pull-Ups Brand Director, Kimberly-Clark. "After years of experience, we know the key to success is keeping mom and child encouraged along the way – which we're doing by asking her to get started, have fun by sharing her first flush successes, and keep going with tools like the Pull-Ups Big Kid App."

Pull-Ups has always offered tips and advice in a way that is most relevant to moms' daily life. With moms spending more than 6 hours a day on their smartphones2, uploading pictures of her tot's successes and using an app that helps with potty training fits perfectly into her routine.

Pull-Ups Big Kid App
Available now for both Android and iOS devices, the Pull-Ups Big Kid App is the perfect tool for Moms' highly mobile life – offering a wealth of content to enhance the potty training experience. Special identifying markers inside packages of Pull-Ups Training Pants can be scanned with the Pull-Ups Big Kid App to activate the interactive Pull-Ups Big Kid 3D Celebration, where Disney characters including Rapunzel and Mickey come to life. Other features include:

  • Fun games featuring Disney characters that are unlocked through stars collected as the child makes potty training progress
  • Calls from kids' favorite Disney characters help surprise and motivate toddlers to use the potty and keep trying
  • Customizable potty timer to help parents remind their child when it's time to go take a potty breaks

The Pull-Ups Big Kid App is available as a free download via the Apple iTunes App store and Google Play for Android. To learn more, visit pull-ups.com.

Companies can harness IoT and predictive analytics to sustain business continuity; predict and manage site performance during emergencies; minimize expensive reactive maintenance; and forecast equipment and maintenance budgets and expenditures. Providing cost-effective, uninterrupted service is challenging, particularly for organizations with geographically dispersed operations.
The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
