Australia’s Cybre Software recently won the Leading Innovation Award at the 6th Taipei International Invention Show and Technomart.

The award was conferred by the International Intellectual Property Network Forum and presented to Cybre’s director Dr Richard Ski for his company’s Cybre Reader Pofessional software. The browser based computer program allows translation of MS Word documents, PDF files, web pages, text and emails into a spoken voice in a range of languages.

The program supports all languages available in Nuance RealSpeak Speech Engine and allows users to translate written foreign language communications. Ski says it is simple enough for people with basic computer knowledge to use easily.

Cybre Reader Professional has particular application to international trade, allowing users to make PowerPoint presentations in a foreign language and to clearly understand contractual agreements and documentation, or to improve their delivery of spoken communications. It can also be used in education and training.

The program incorporates security features to protect intellectual property content to prevent it from being copied or used illegally. Additional security is available through Cybre’s encryption services.

The International Intellectual Property Network Forum includes members from Taiwan, Korea, Sweden, Iran, Poland, Malaysia and Russia.

Portrait Software Awards T-Mobile Austria ‘Uplift Award’

November 18th, 2010
Share

Loyalty World Conference and Exhibition; London – November 16, 2010 – Portrait Software, a leading provider of customer interaction optimization software and now a part of Pitney Bowes Business Insight (PBBI), today presented Christian Reder, Marketing Analyst at T-Mobile Austria GmbH, with the Portrait Software 2010 “Uplift Award” at the Loyalty World Conference. The Uplift Award honors companies which have demonstrated innovative use of uplift modeling techniques to achieve outstanding incremental results in marketing campaigns.

T-Mobile Austria was selected as the recipient of the award for its use of uplift modeling techniques within its proactive retention programme. It showed that it was possible to better target retention campaigns to reduce churn by 2.4 percentage points and achieve a double-digit reduction in targeting volume at the same time. This new accuracy in targeting has allowed T-Mobile to focus on the profitability of saving each individual customer.

“Portrait Uplift Optimizer has automated much of the modeling process for T-Mobile,” commented Christian Reder, Marketing Analyst, T-Mobile Austria GmbH. “It used to take weeks for our internal team to create a new model. Now it takes days, and this allows us to use the technique on many more campaigns. We have surpassed our results expectations for this campaign, and seeing the effectiveness of modeling on incremental gains rather than all responses, we will be expanding our use of Uplift to other areas of marketing. We appreciate this recognition of our team’s work and achievement and look forward to a continued partnership with Portrait Software.”

“We are delighted to honor T-Mobile with this outstanding achievement award,” says Luke McKeever, CEO, Portrait Software. “Christian and his team colleagues have set a precedent with their strategic use of Portrait Uplift Optimizer and the retention results they have achieved so far this year. Christian is a dedicated analytics leader who has sought to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of T-Mobile’s marketing by focusing on the true incremental impact of its campaigning – looking to target campaigns based on a prediction of lift, not just to measure lift after the campaign.”

Portrait Uplift Optimizer enables companies to produce results that are above what may have been achieved with any other modeling tool and Portrait Software looks forward to announcing future winners of this competitively-fought achievement award.

The Portrait Software Uplift Award

The Uplift Award is an annual achievement award given by Portrait Software to a company that demonstrates innovative, strategic, creative use and application of uplift modeling in their marketing organizations. Outstanding incremental increases in customer retention and revenues, and reduced marketing costs are among the criteria on which candidates are judged. Awarded for the first time in 2009, the Portrait Software Uplift Award will be given to a single recipient annually.

Comodo’s geekbuddy software earns the parent tested/parent approved award and seal of approval

November 18th, 2010
Share

Comodo, a leading Internet security organization, is proud to announce it has earned the Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA) Seal of Approval for its GeekBuddy™ software. All products that have won this award and earned this recognition from PTPA Media have been tested by a group of select families from PTPA’s 40,000 plus volunteer testers.

Comodo® Geekbuddy™ offers 24/7 support for your computer issues right from your desktop. Simply click an icon on your desktop and get instant access to a technician to remotely diagnose and give live, instant technical assistance to home PC users whenever they have problems with their computer.

The service allows anyone with a Windows based computer and a high-speed Internet connection to receive immediate help from a live Comodo security professional anytime of the day, seven days a week. For an annual subscription of $49.95, GeekBuddy software will proactively monitor your PC and alert you when there is a problem allowing you to then connect to a Comodo technician for quick resolution. From this point, the technician will securely work with the customer to help correct any performance or system problems to not only correct the immediate issue but to ensure the machine running in peak condition.

“We’re delighted GeekBuddy was recognized by parent testers for an outstanding software solution for children,” said Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and chief security architect of Comodo. “Mothers can feel confident with GeekBuddy that their children can get the computer help they need to solve their PC issues anytime with this added assurance from PTPA’s seal of approval.”

PTPA Media is North America’s largest parent tester community – a credible third-party resource for parents with over 40,000 volunteer parent testers. “Seeing the PTPA Winner’s Seal on a product package or website helps parents identify products that have been tested and recommended by other parents. It’s like shopping with your best friend,” says PTPA Founder and CEO, Sharon Vinderine.

Since 2008, PTPA has evaluated thousands of products and services from leading manufacturers and emerging brands. Because independent parents evaluate these products in their own homes, PTPA winners are chosen based on merit and consumer experience – not on commercial considerations.

PTPA Media has become a recognized source by the media for credible and reliable recommendations for the audience. PTPA Founder Sharon Vinderine has presented PTPA winners on over 40 morning shows including the Rachael Ray Show, Fox and Friends and Canada AM.

October 31st, 2010
Share

Singular Software(TM), developer of workflow automation applications for digital media, has garnered DV Magazine’s Award of Excellence for its flagship product, PluralEyes(R). Also the recipient of DV Magazine’s Best of Show Black Diamond Award, and EventDV’s NAB Winners’ Circle at this year’s NAB Show, PluralEyes provides users with valuable workflow automation features for managing multi-camera, multi-take, and dual-system audio productions quickly and efficiently.

“PluralEyes has become the go-to tool for anyone syncing DSLR video or other dual-system audio workflows,” said Bruce Sharpe, CEO, Singular Software. “Since its introduction last year, Singular Software has released numerous PluralEyes updates, extended its NLE support, and even welcomed two new additions to the PluralEyes family – DualEyes and Singular Software Presto.

Valor materials manager software from mentor graphics wins a 2010 global technology award

October 26th, 2010
Share

Mentor Graphics Corporation today announced that it has received a 2010 Global Technology Award in the category of software for the Valor(R) Materials Manager software product. Dan Weitzman, regional business manager, Americas, for the company’s Valor Division accepted the award at the Global Technology Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, October 26, 2010 during SMTA International in Orlando, Florida.

Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Award-winning products are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.

The Valor Materials Manager application is based on actual materials usage, both consumption and attrition (i.e. dropped parts/mis-picks) from the SMT machines in the factory to generate true “lean” pull signals for replenishment materials and replacement materials needed to complete the work order ahead of a planned change-over. This is an intelligent system that makes the best decisions possible to ensure the correct material is delivered with the lowest cost of operation, to the correct machines, just in time.

User-defined options, such as FIFO, determine the method used to continuously choose the least expensive pick location or part status when creating a pick-list. In many factories, existing material management tools have limited or no visibility into actual material usage, attrition, MSD (Moisture Sensitive Device) status, RoHS status, machine production rates and schedule, downtime or floor stock. Without access to these dynamic attributes from the shop floor, ERP systems or material handling tools operate in the dark and lead to unnecessary build up of excessive inventories to compensate. The innovation in the Materials Manager software bases all material movements on real-time accurate data from the shop floor, whether delivering materials directly to a machine or managing setup on an off-line trolley.

VizZle wins prestigious educational software award

October 1st, 2010
Share

The educational community has again recognized VizZle educational software as a groundbreaking tool in the special education field. In its 15th annual Educational Software Review Awards (EDDIE), The ComputED Gazette named VizZle a premier Teacher Tool and gave it an EDDIE for best Special Education Website. VizZle has now won seven educational awards since launching last year for its innovative approach to teaching children with autism.

“The special education field simply needs better tools,” said Terry Murphy, CEO of Monarch Teaching Technologies, which developed VizZle. “After five years of R&D, these awards confirm the breakthrough value of VizZle to the most important people – the incredibly dedicated teachers of special needs children. It’s wonderful to know this software is truly helping children with autism succeed.”

The ComputED Gazette, based in California, considers companies and products from across the country for the national EDDIE awards. The Gazette also hosts the national BESSIE awards, and in 2009, BESSIE reviewers said “VizZle should be part of every special needs teacher’s tool kit.”

Created by researchers from Childrens Hospital Boston/Harvard Medical School and educators from the Monarch School for Children with Autism, VizZle capitalizes on children’s visual processing skills and their inherent interest in multimedia. Research shows that children with autism pay attention and retain more when lessons are presented interactively on computers than when the lesson is presented in more traditional verbal/directive methods. Children with autism become very engaged when using computers, touch screens, tablets and electronic whiteboards which run the VizZle software.

VizZle, short for “visual learning,” offers both the tools to create lessons and a library of thousands of visual lessons made by other users to teach academic as well as daily life concepts such as emotions. Today, school districts in over 30 states are using VizZle. Teachers are adding to the library of lessons and sharing materials with peers and parents across the country.
