Pipemetrics taps into the emerging market trend for higher quality Windows software

Lausanne, Switzerland, June 25, 2015 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Overwhelmingly positive user response confirms strong demand for well-crafted Windows software.

Pipemetrics (http://www.pipemetrics.com) marked the first year on the market of its flagship product Bvckup 2 (http://bvckup2.com/) by announcing that an analysis of user engagement data shows substantial and growing demand from Windows users for higher quality standards.

Windows has been traditionally associated with software that focused on the technical elements first and the user experience second.

Founded in 2012, Pipemetrics was set up with an altogether different take on Windows software. By marrying industrial system engineering with nuanced visual and interactive design, the company develops software that is as lean and powerful as it is beautiful.

This month marks the first anniversary of the release of Bvckup 2 – the first embodiment of company’s design principles. A simple, single-purpose, yet sophisticated and performant local backup software for Windows.

“When we launched Bvckup 2 we wondered whether our high-end engineering philosophy would be accepted by users,” explained company’s founder, Alexandre Pankratov. “After all it’s not uncommon for Windows software to compete on how many things a product does rather on how well it does them. After the release, we were very pleased with the positive reviews in the media, but what completely caught us off guard was the avalanche of compliments received from actual users.”

Conceived for professional, enterprise and advanced home users, the functional power of Bvckup 2 is harnessed through a precise and intuitive interface to deliver a robust user experience.

“This overwhelmingly positive reaction shows that a growing number of Windows users recognize and look for software polish as a feature in its own right. Windows users’ expectations are changing; simply having lots of options is no longer enough.”

Sample of user feedback*
“Bvckup 2 is one of the best pieces of software I’ve used in the last 35 years. Does what you said; solves my problem; Fast.” Michael Fuller

“A truly beautiful, precise and well-executed piece of software.” Riyad Kalla

“Simple, minimalistic, yet so powerful.” Ivan Kolevski

Product information:
Bvckup 2 (pronounced “Backup 2”) is a mirroring data backup software for Windows. Select a pair of directories and the app will make sure that one stays an exact copy of the other. It is light, uncomplicated and includes a comprehensive array of supporting features. It is also incredibly fast.

Company information:
Pipemetrics SA is a Swiss company founded by Alexandre Pankratov, formerly of the Hamachi VPN project, acquired by LogMeIn after growing to 3 million users in 18 months. The company draws extensively from his experience combining advanced engineering and interface design to produce simpler software for complex tasks.

Stanford Student Entrepreneur Raised $800K on Kickstarter

Palo Alto, CA, April 02, 2015 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Stanford student Jerming Gu, founder of CANDY HOUSE Inc., raised more than $800,000 dollars after his product launch on Kickstarter. Sesame – the world’s first instant smart lock – reached its funding goal in nine hours when first introduced. Currently, nearly 5,000 supporters have backed the project.

Sesame allows users to lock and unlock their doors using the Sesame app on their smartphones. It is the only smart lock that syncs the movement of the lock with the phone, providing exact control of the angle to which the lock turns.

“There has got to be smarter ways to live our life,” Gu said.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/northern Europe Markets.

CANDY HOUSE also offers optional access point, which connects Sesame to the Internet when plugged into any nearby outlet. It lets users control Sesame wherever they are.

With Internet connection capability, users can allow guests in remotely. They can also control who has access and when. To ensure safety, the Sesame app also sends out a notification whenever the door opens or closes.

Finding the Right Content Management Solutions

With vast amounts of continual information creation, many businesses find it difficult to fully leverage, manage, and distribute their information effectively. Implementing new technology in-house can be an expensive and problematic situation resulting in excess time and cost overruns. This is due to the innate learning curve required for successful integration, the inevitable distraction due to the overlap of daily duties, and a host of other externalities that can restrain progress.

Many businesses prefer an information technology consulting company that can assist them in tailoring and implementing data content management solutions. The goal of many businesses is to reduce the cycle-time involved with the continual loop of content creation, content enrichment, content management and content delivery. Since this loop is recurring, there is great value in designing a solution that, for instance; publishes content to the web, to print, or to wireless media in an efficient and effective fashion. Trying to manage all of this manually can be exhausting and trying to implement an in-house solution can be painful and risky resulting in an uncertain level of quality and reliability.

It is often difficult to find consulting businesses that not only guide businesses toward the right solutions, but also implement the solutions with candor and integrity. Ideally, it is good to start at the beginning using a business’s current technology and current processes. Then systematically choose the right out-of-the-box product(s) that can be customized to fit the business’s requirements.

Whether a business is looking for improved web content management, digital asset management, multi-channel systems, work flow management, or any combination thereof; a solid content management consultant would have the experience, the passion, the maturity and innovation required to arrive at a solution adapted to the business.

DPCI is a content management consultation business that not only has the high-level of requirements necessary for consulting, tailoring and implementing quality content management systems, but they also do it with integrity. They have a ten year track record of delivering content management solutions for many notable businesses in a wide range of industries. DPCI has the experience to help maximize the value of a business’s information content in both print and digital forms.

Entrepreneurial Challenge Sparks Media Interest in Tracesmart

Tracesmart has received attention from the national press following their MD’s entry into the Bank of Scotland Corporate £35 Million Entrepreneur Challenge.

Tracesmart, renowned for providing online people tracing, anti-money-laundering and know your customer (KYC) services, has recently received major interest from the national press. Having entered the South West England and Wales regional heat of the Bank of Scotland Corporate Entrepreneur Challenge, the story of Tracesmart’s Managing Director and founder, Mike Trezise, caught the attention of the Sunday Times.

The Bank of Scotland Corporate Entrepreneur Challenge is comprised of several regional heats and receives entries from all over Great Britain. Each regional winner will receive the prize of a loan up to the value of £5 million interest free and be eligible for entry into the national final in which they could win the coveted title of “Bank of Scotland Corporate Entrepreneur of the Year”.

Of the approximate 160 regional entrants, Trezise was highly received – this standing and his company’s inimitable suite of services consequently caught the attention of the Sunday Times and resulted in an article highlighting Trezise’s success being published. Speaking from the company’s Cardiff Bay headquarters, Tracesmart’s Communications Manager, Owen Roberts, commented, “Whilst Mike did not rank quite as high as we would have liked, the resulting press coverage has been great – we have received many calls from companies interested in our services. This is an exciting time for Tracesmart as we are currently experiencing rapid growth and coverage in the national press is helping to fuel our momentum further.”

Entitled “On the right track” the article, published on the 12 October, depicted Trezise’s career up to the formation of Tracesmart in 2004, it also highlighted how the rise in interest surrounding the use of online services designed to trace people has helped the company to flourish. Discussing the current high levels of interest in people tracing Trezise commented, “I know from my own professional experience that tracing is somewhat of a niche business, yet the demand has increased exponentially since I was a tracer – the current economic climate where companies are keen to reunite individuals with unclaimed assets or trace debtors has spurned this growth.”

The Sunday Times feature also identified the wide spectrum of industries that Tracesmart currently service, a list which includes banks, universities, solicitors, accountants and estate agents amongst others; demonstrating the wide range of cross-industry applications that their portfolio of tracing, data cleansing and id verification services hold.

  • Tracesmart was formed in 2004 and supply a diverse range of consumer data cleansing, identity check and tracing tools to a wide variety of industries. Their client base ranges from SME to Blue Chip, who are all recipients of bespoke solutions, built around their specific needs.
  • The Bank of Scotland £35 Million Entrepreneur Challenge offers entrepreneurs throughout Great Britain the opportunity to be rewarded for their achievements and their businesses the chance for some much deserved exposure. The challenge aims to support driven, well established businesses that are aiming to grow and become dominant forces in their markets.
  • Michael Trezise is the founder and Managing Director of Tracesmart. With over 25 years tracing and fraud analysis experience his unrivalled knowledge provides the company with a distinct competitive advantage.
  • Owen Roberts is Tracesmart’s Communications Manager and has over 25 years in the creative and advertising industries including 7 years with the BBC. Owen recently joined Tracesmart with the view of keeping one eye on public relations whilst also overseeing business development projects.
