New customer Nuadda achieves time savings of 25 percent with Plunet

The team at Nuadda (Source: Nuadda)

The Spanish translation agency Nuadda uses Plunet BusinessManager to efficiently coordinate and control their translation management processes.

Nuadda provides translations from and into Spanish, as well as the regional languages Basque, Catalan and Galician. The Madrid-based company was founded in 2011 and focuses on translation in the fields of technology, engineering and healthcare. For Nuadda, being aware of cultural differences is a crucial part of the translation process.

Plunet is an internationally active company that develops the leading business and translation management software, Plunet BusinessManager. The services provided on the web-based platform include project planning, automation, and the management of complex processes, as well as the integration of individual workflows. Target customers are translation agencies, language departments, governmental organizations, and NGOs.

More efficiency required

Nuadda was initially satisfied with the translation management solution that they were using before Plunet. However, as the number of orders increased, so did the need for more efficiency. After an extensive comparison of the solutions on the market, Nuadda chose Plunet.

Arancha Caballero, founder and CEO of Nuadda, describes the decision-making process as follows: „I talked to our customers. They confirmed that we would be able to significantly reduce the amount of time required to organize data if we used Plunet. And the Plunet staff convinced me about everything else.“

Time savings of 25 percent

After a quick and smooth implementation phase, Nuadda started slowly: „With the huge variety of templates in Plunet, we can now automate even more processes than the ones that we have already been using in our everyday work. So far, we have been very careful. The team needs to feel comfortable with the new ways of working.“ Arancha Caballero prepared her team early for the new processes. Her staff can gradually stop using old methods and develop a new, suitable workflow.

Nuadda have already recognized many benefits of working with Plunet. Project managers no longer have to take care of repetitive tasks such as data maintenance, invoicing and logins. Furthermore, they can quickly access customer information in the system. As a result, Nuadda has been able to achieve time savings of 25 percent. This time can now be spent on other projects.

More languages in the future

Nuadda is now planning to increase the number of languages that are translated into Spanish:
„We mainly translate English, German and French texts into Spanish. But over the last years, we have seen an increasing demand for translations from other languages. With Plunet, we can easily filter languages and specific properties, and we will be using these options intensively in the future.“

With offices in Würzburg, Berlin and New York, Plunet GmbH develops and markets the business and translation management software Plunet BusinessManager, the leading management solution for the translation and localization industry. With Plunet BusinessManager you can manage your entire workflow in a single solution, from client requests to quote, order, job and invoice management to reporting. Extensions for interpretation and quality management as well as integrations with CAT and financial accounting tools will further improve efficiency and automation in your work. Within a configurable system, various functions and extensions of Plunet BusinessManager can be adapted to individual needs.

Faster results, better prices – mufin’s audio recognition for TV and radio content gets a major upgrade

Faster results, better prices - mufin

audio fingerprinting by mufin

The technology provider mufin sets new standards in audio recognition with the latest major upgrade of its technology. Now, the database search in mufin’s audioid toolbox is much faster. The improved performance allows all audioid products to be operated on smaller budgets.

To recognize content in TV and radio, a reference database must be created. audioid extracts an acoustic fingerprint of the audio from TV or radio and sends it to the reference database for comparison. Once the identical fingerprint has been found in the database, the TV or radio content is identified.

Lars Fabig, Director Business Development: „This database synchronization is a continuous process and requires a large amount of server instances for high-content projects. We have succeeded in optimizing this search process enormously. Faster database searching means fewer CPU resources and lower operational costs. So the improved core algorithm makes significant cost savings possible, regardless of whether our customers own the products themselves or simply host the products.“

In order to give each customer project an optimal balance between speed, error tolerance, and operating costs, the new upgrade comes in two configurations. One configuration is geared towards broadcast monitoring projects, while the other configuration is optimized for mobile use cases where a higher level of robustness against acoustic interference is important.

In addition to the improved algorithm, the major upgrade offers the following product enhancements:
1.An even more flexible modular audioid toolbox
2.An all-in-one Mobile SDK that supports all audioid products
3.Improved reliability through redundancy of important system components
4.Automatic monitoring of input signals and alarm notifications in case of error
5.Improved system monitoring dashboard
6.More secure and simple licensing

Existing customers can upgrade their products free of charge. New customers now benefit from the new generation of audio recognition.

mufin has been developing solutions and services for automatic content recognition and music recommendation since 2011. Based on audio fingerprinting, mufin’s modular toolbox detects audioid content on TV and radio. The software is licensed as a white label solution for B2B customers and enables the following use cases:
-Broadcast monitoring of advertising, music, and other media content
-Audience measurement
-Real-time advertising recognition
-Real-time channel detection in TV and radio
-Real-time synchronization between second screen app and TV/radio

Target groups are, among others, market research companies, media monitoring agencies and TV and radio broadcasters.
mufin GmbH is a subsidiary of Bellevue Investments GmbH & Co. KGaA and has its headquarters in Berlin.

New revenue streams for airlines and airport businesses: Travel tech start-up QUICKET.io relaunches mobile app PassWallet

Dynamic boarding passes enable offerings of ancillary services to one million users

New revenue streams for airlines and airport businesses: Travel tech start-up QUICKET.io relaunches mobile app PassWallet

After the relaunch, QUICKET.io’s PassWallet app now enables service providers to offer ancillaries.

Following the recent acquisition of the mobile wallet app PassWallet, Software-as-a-Service company QUICKET.io relaunched the app today. The Munich-based start-up hereby takes an important step towards opening up a new channel of distribution for ancillary air travel services, lifting the existing wallet technology to a new stage with dynamic wallet items. Airlines for example now are not only able to update tickets and boarding passes as needed, but also to offer upgrades, meals and other services to their passengers directly from within the app.

Today, virtual wallets are mostly used to statically store tickets and itinerary information. Building on the widely accepted industry protocol for virtual wallet items developed by Apple, QUICKET.io now enhanced the existing PassWallet app with its capabilities regarding ancillary services sales in air travel. The company which supplies airplane data to partners like Kayak, Kiwi.com and others thus enables airlines and other service providers in and around airports like hotels, shops, restaurants or parking to offer their services dynamically to one million already existing users.

Bettina Schneider, QUICKET.io“s Vice President of Business Development and travel veteran, is convinced by the idea: „The new PassWallet will dramatically enlarge the timeframe that airlines and service providers have to present their fantastic offers to future buyers. The value of their offers to the customer is insured by geo-location, smart timing algorithms and AR/VR representation that increase passengers“ engagement and satisfaction as well as ancillary revenue for our partners. With our technology, we not only open new revenue streams for airlines and other service providers, but also create the integrated, paperless experience travelers expect today.“

QUICKET.io is a Munich-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider, specialized in the supply of reliable data about airline extra services in the travel industry. The company implements technologies from the fields of big data, augmented reality, virtual reality and connected mobility and provides an API that enables QUICKET.io“s customers to flexibly obtain information for example on seating, WiFi, catering, luggage or priority boarding and present this information to end customers in a user-friendly form via numerous platforms. QUICKET.io was founded in 2012 by the former Microsoft manager Djois Franklin as well as Fred Finn, who holds the Guinness World Record for the most covered air miles. Employees of their international team have gained work experience for example at Travelport, Intel, IDEO, Mercedes-Benz, Facebook.

This eliminates errors and decreases costs due to less efforts for trade fair preparation, easier order entry and faster billing.
Distinctive gemstone profile as coded label
In order to make the combinatorial variety of quality features for the gemstone software eXtra4gemID managable, the classification of each and every stone is essential. Users store all relevant stone types with their qualities, cuts, and shapes in the software on site. From this, gem classes are created and each item is assigned accordingly. In combination with the carat weight, the categorization within the eXtra4gemID software finally gives each single gemstone a unique profile based on its individual characteristics. This unique profile is encrypted by the software and printed on a label in three different ways: as descriptive key for trained sales personnel, as machine-readable matrix code for scanners and as plain text in excerpts for customer sales talks.
Edition „Business“ with Client/Server Database
For the management of all stone profiles in their classes the gemstone software eXtra4gemID uses a database. The existing single-user solution operates as edition „Basic“ with a database integrated on a local workstation computer. In contrast the new software edition „Business“ uses the multi-user client/server database PostgreSQL. This allows direct database access from any number of workstations.
Developed in cooperation with lapidary business insiders
In 2016 Ferdinand Eisele presented under his brand „eXtra4“ for the first time identification technology for gemstones to professionals. Today the software is provided by eXtra4 Software + Service GmbH, the company’s IT subsidiary. The software eXtra4gemID is based on decades of experience with labelling and identification for the jewellery and watch sector. Cooperation with manufacturers and dealers from the German gemstone centre Idar-Oberstein transposes this expertise into the lapidary business. An efficient software tool for classification, identification and streamlining of gemstones has been created. A further software edition for the use of RFID is already in development. A first impression of this innovative type of gemstone management can interested parties also get during Baselworld 2019 in Hall 4.1 at Stand G11.
