AGWS Makes Presence At 2019 NADA

American Guardian Warranty Services, Inc. (AGWS), part of the American Guardian Group of Companies and leading finance and insurance (F&I) products and services provider, will be exhibiting at the 2019 NADA Show from Jan. 24 – 27, booth #5558N at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.

Conference attendees who visit the AGWS booth during NADA can put their golf skills to the test on the putting green. For each attendee who makes 3 out of 5 putts, AGWS will donate $100 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The putting green contest follows AGWS’ Pars for a Purpose fundraiser, which raised $280,000 for St. Jude in 2018.

In addition to the putting contest, dealers and agents will have the opportunity to win a golf getaway for four to the Reunion Resort in Orlando, Florida. Dealers and agents who visit the AGWS booth will receive one half of a puzzle piece containing a portion of a unique promotional code; the remaining-half of the puzzle piece and code will be available at EcoProProducts’ booth #7753W. EcoProProducts offers superior F&I appearance protection products. Once attendees have secured both puzzle pieces, they will be able to complete the special code, which can then be used to enter the drawing for a chance to win the AGWS-sponsored golf trip.

“The AGWS team is looking forward to exhibiting, meeting with our dealer and agent partners, and creating new business relationships at this year’s expo,” said Jon A. Anderson, President and Chief Operating Officer of American Guardian. “Our booth will feature a new look, showcasing our products and services, including Vehicle Service Contracts (VSC) and Ancillary F&I Products, Dealer Capital Advance Program, Dealer Certified Lifetime Program, Appearance Protection Products, Limited Warranties, and more.”

The AGWS executive team and sales, and ownership personnel will be in attendance at the AGWS booth (#5558N) throughout the three-day expo, as well as at the Friday night party for NADA attendees interested in learning more about the company’s products and services.

GO:KEYS ScratchX Extension

Learn to Code and Make Music with Roland’s New GO:KEYS ScratchX Extension


Kids can create interactive stories, games and animations with music and 
sound using Roland keyboard and popular Scratch visual programing language


Roland Corporation (LVCC Central Hall, Booth# 17544) announces the release of GO:KEYS ScratchX Extension, a computer programing extension at the intersection of coding and music creation that offers a new way for kids to connect their GO:KEYS keyboards with the popular visual computer programming language Scratch. When ScratchX and the GO:KEYS ScratchX Extension are connected to a GO:KEYS instrument, kids can create original interactive stories, games, and animations with authentic sounds and music accompaniment. A project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab, Scratch is used by millions of children around the world.

ScratchX is a browser-based platform for working with experimental extensions built by developers for the visual programming language Scratch. With its high-quality sounds and Loop Mix function, GO:KEYS is an ideal companion for ScratchX. In addition, it’s possible to use GO:KEYS as an interactive controller for animation and other content created with ScratchX. Together, GO:KEYS and ScratchX form a unique platform for inspiring children and helping them explore their creativity.

The portable, battery-powered GO:KEYS offers music-making possibilities for those interested in creating their own music but have not learned to play piano notes or chords, or even read music. Its unique design offers one-touch operation with a “Loop Mix” feature, in which different instrument patterns are assigned to a range of keys on the keyboard. A simple key-press creates a musical pattern that can be combined with others to create custom grooves, while intuitive touch pads enable the sounds to be easily manipulated in real time. Bluetooth® connectivity to smartphones or tablets lets users jam with their favorite music or record songs using music creation apps. The GO:KEYS contains more than 500 high-quality sounds. A touch panel and backlit LCD makes it easy to select the perfect sound and musical genre. Built-in speakers and headphones jack offer on-the-go sound anywhere.

Brian Alli, Roland’s Vice President of Artist Relations and Business Development, offered, “As we’ve explored Scratch, we’ve grown our own appreciation for the natural relationship between learning to code and playing music. We’re excited to showcase the ScratchX Extension and its applications within GO:KEYS at CES this year.”
