The Starnberg company estos has been awarded the German Innovation Award 2018 by the German Design Council: The presence management system from the ProCall Enterprise software wins the coveted innovation award in the „Information Technologies“ category. The prize, which was awarded for the first time this year, pays tribute to products and solutions across all sectors which are distinguished for being user-focused and adding value compared to previous solutions. The presence management system from estos offers users unprecedented transparency regarding the accessibility of their colleagues: Through a software interface on the PC screen, the current presence of a person is displayed: present, busy, in an appointment or in a telephone conversation. At the click of a mouse, the user can contact the respective person either by phone, chat or e-mail. „A typical scenario for the meaningful use of a presence management system, for example, looks like this: ProCall Enterprise uses Calendar View to display that a particular person is occupied by a two-hour appointment. This makes it clear when they available to be contacted again. At the same time, the communication channels of chat or e-mail will still be available, which can also be accessed from the meeting,“ explains Christoph Lösch, Managing Director at estos. „Unnecessary attempts to contact someone are a thing of the past.“

Screw or Glue: the first fully flexible door stopper series

Excellent design „Made in Germany“

Screw or Glue: the first fully flexible door stopper series

Excellent design: door stoppers Screw or glue

Door stopper to protect doors, walls and furniture are ubiquitous and widely in use every day. However mostly there is a problem with the fixation of the stopper due to missing or inflexible attachment possibilities. With the premium door stopper series „Screw or Glue“ Wagner has developed the perfect user solution: eight stylish models in reduced design can be either screwed on permanently or – on smooth surfaces – glued on and be removed again at any time without leaving any residue.
The material quality is ambitious: All door stoppers of the „Screw or Glue“ series are manufactured in a combination of a body made of solid stainless steel and a soft stop or wedge made of thermoplastic rubber. Even the bounce of a heavy, massive door is cushioned without vibration or noise; damages to doors, walls and furniture are effectively prevented. For a permanent attachment, the stoppers are screwed onto the floor – attachment hardware included. Or alternatively simply glued on, for example in rented apartments, where holes in the floor are not allowed. Through a special glue pad the stylish stoppers can be fixed to any smooth flooring and – if required – be removed with a slight twisting motion, residue-free. The flexible application possibilities, the high level of innovation and the aesthetically pleasing design convinced the jury of the highest German design institution: The „Screw or glue“ door stopper series was nominated for the „German Design Award 2014“ by the German Design Council – an extra selling point for trade. Because this innovation has the potential to become a top-seller: All eight versions are offered in a display presentation strongly attractive to customers, but can also complement existing stopper ranges as a high quality shelf placement.
