Zenkit releases Desktop Apps for macOS, Windows and Linux

Zenkit releases Desktop Apps for macOS, Windows and Linux

March 28th, 2018 – Karlsruhe, Germany: Today, the Zenkit team announces the release of desktop apps for macOS, Windows and Linux. With its most recent release the German startup has moved closer towards creating a flexible SaaS product that can now additionally be used on all major laptop and computer devices.

The desktop apps can be accessed without opening the internet browser. Zenkit was until now a web/mobile app.The desktop and mobile apps can also be used offline. Zenkits decision to include Linux desktop apps was mainly triggered by the fact that Linux is under supported in the project management community. Although, being a less popular operating system than front-runners Windows and Mac, many software developers favor Linux over its flexibility and customizability, making the release of a Zenkit desktop app an important issue for the Zenkit team.

Zenkit is a project management software that allows users different views of their project information. Views that are included are: to-do list, Kanban, table, mind map and calendar. Users can switch between these views to use different tools for tasks. Furthermore, Zenkit has common project management features like commenting, labels, custom fields, and task assignments. Zenkit is free for up to five people.

The key features in this release:
Desktop apps for macOS, Windows, and Linux with offline ability
Fully customizable in each „view“: members, notifications, filters, view menu, activities
Global activities: An activity feed of everything across your account on the home page
Collection-level commenting (previously only task-level comments)
Shortcut to open the quick add dialog from anywhere (Ctrl+Shift+Space)
Global shortcut to jump right into the app (Ctrl+Shift+Z)
A bunch of local shortcuts for navigation and integration of standard shortcuts (for example opening the settings using Ctrl+, and many more)

Zenkit founder and CEO Martin Welker says: „In order for teams to achieve product buy-in, you need to be flexible in the type of tools you can offer them. Once you“ve done that, you need to make sure that your service is available on any device, platform, operating system that they would like to use to get their work done.“

The Zenkit team plans to release a whole arsenal of new, handy features in the coming months.
New features will focus on deeper integration with Mac and Windows Operating Systems.

About Zenkit: Zenkit is a project management and database building platform created by Axonic Informationssysteme GmbH in Germany. It was launched in October of 2016.

About Axonic: Axonic Informationssysteme GmbH is a privately held software vendor focusing on technology concerning information, communication and recognition. The company is located in Karlsruhe, Germany and was founded by Martin Welker in 2003. Axonic has been successfully developing software in the areas of artificial intelligence, knowledge and information extraction for over a decade. Since 2002, their research has primarily been based on the area of „communication intelligence“ – the analysis and presentation of communication. Axonic has released 6 major products that serve over 5,000,000 people around the world.

Vacation time! - Salzburg Airport now in local hands

Salzburg Airport now in local hands

Local advantage in parking space management: With the W.A. Mozart Airport“s decision to contract SKIDATA for the new parking access system, the airport has chosen a local company only 8 kilometers away as the crow flies.

A 10-year maintenance contract guarantees quick reactions to any new challenges the airport may face. For Michael Ramsauer, leader of operations for SKIDATA Austria, the satisfaction of the customer is of primary importance: „Alongside a quick reaction time, an important issue for me is professional interaction with the customer. To this end, our service technicians are being trained with technical and product-specific instruction.“

SKIDATA world wide: a look at SKIDATA India

This Austrian leader in innovation enjoys Bollywood-scale success

SKIDATA world wide: a look at SKIDATA India

Rechts: Amit Rana; Links: Nimish Sonawala

SKIDATA’s Indian success story began in 2007 with their cooperation with local partner Hinditron. Shortly thereafter, SKIDATA, a leading company in access and revenue management, won tenders for the airports in Bangalore and Hyderabad, the first privately operated airports in India. This formed the basis for the foundation of the joint venture between SKIDATA India and Hinditron in 2009. Nimish Sonawala, Hinditron Group’s Managing Director at the time, was appointed Managing Director for Skidata (India) Pvt. Ltd. in Mumbai.

In 2014 SKIDATA won the parking solution facilities tender for the Mumbai International Airport Terminal 2, the hub of the Indian financial and business world. Today SKIDATA’s customers in India include numerous large shopping centers and stadiums such as the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad and the Buddh International Circuit Formula One racetrack near New Delhi.

It’s not only successful bids for numerous projects that have given SKIDATA momentum in India, but also its own development center. In the same year with the opening of your development site in Bangalore a new important milestone was set.

SKIDATA Technologies Bangalore

Known as the Silicon Valley of the East, Bangalore is a dynamic market. Here you will find the largest software talent pool in India. Consequently, start-ups and blue chip companies from all over the world have established themselves in Bangalore. This also includes SKIDATA Technologies Bangalore, which started operations in 2014. With great enthusiasm, General Manager Amit Rana reports on his software development teams: „My teams are passionate about their work and take great pride in developing products. It is not always easy to assert yourself in the job market against all the big names, but what we lack in size we make up in passion and commitment.“ At SKIDATA Technologies Bangalore work very good developers that are designing the next generation cloud-based solutions using cutting edge technologies in the mobile and web space. It makes the team especially happy to see their SKIDATA solutions in use at different locations in India.
Developers who enjoy working in small focused teams on new technologies, while giving complete respect to work-life balance send their profile to SKIDATA by visiting http://www.skidata.com/en/career/open-positions/details-on-open-positions/detail/senior-software-engineer-fm.html

Close teamwork and regular exchange form the basis

International success is only possible when people of various nationalities cooperate and are open to cultural differences within the team. Intercultural cooperation works at SKIDATA: for example, software developers from Austria, France, India and the US collaborate together on new technologies in our R&D department. Although cooperating with others who are thousands of miles away is no problem these days, it is always special to get to know your colleagues in person. For this reason, when SKIDATA employees from India visited the company’s headquarters in Grödig near Salzburg in Austria during the early years, it was an exciting experience for everyone involved.

Work internationally and achieve success together – job vacancies and career opportunities at SKIDATA

If you have no fear of cultural diversity, a job at SKIDATA is perfect for you! Implement new ideas in our international development teams, experience the open corporate culture and work with reliable team players from all over the world. Our company offers employees all of this and much more.

SKIDATA world-wide

A look at SKIDATA’s Chilean branch in Santiago

Situated in Austria – but at home around the world. Founded in Grödig near Salzburg in Austria in 1977, SKIDATA currently operates in more than 90 countries with 23 subsidiaries. One of these branches is in Chile; more specifically in Santiago. Opened in 2009, its employees work in the departments of technical support, sales, project management, finance, administration and development. In addition to executing projects in Chile, SKIDATA employees are also responsible for support with regional partners in Latin America, for example in Mexico, Colombia and also for our new subsidiary in Uruguay.

Diego oversees the branch in Chile. As Area Manager for South America he especially enjoys the close contact with the SKIDATA headquarters as well as the variety that his responsibility-packed position brings with it: „We maintain continuous communication and have good knowledge exchange with the headquarters in Austria. In my job, no day is the same. The mix of clients from the areas of Car Access and People Access helps keep things exciting.“ Diego possesses profound technical knowledge and during his MBA study he acquired the skills necessary for a successful management career. During the course of his career, he has specialized in the areas of business development and the development of emerging markets.

The company“s values and philosophy also play an important role in his work:
„Our SKIDATA values help us to focus on what“s important and distinguish us from our competitors.“

SKIDATA technology in Latin America: shopping centers and ski resorts

Many different interesting projects have been realized in the Chile branch: the Aventura Plaza shopping center in Lechería (Venezuela) is one of many examples of shopping centers which have been equipped with SKIDATA technology. Thanks to modern parking management, security at the entrances and exits has been greatly improved.

The rapid growth in the shopping center sector continues: new malls and shopping centers are being built in Chile and many other Latin American countries, with great demand for professional parking solutions.

In addition to access solutions in the area of Car Access, SKIDATA has made a name for itself in Chilean ski resorts. In the El Colorado Andean ski resort, easily reachable from the capital Santiago, operators trust SKIDATA“S tried and tested access management systems and are familiar with the advantages of innovative technology from Austria. With Nevados de Chillan, SKIDATA equipped one of the Andes“ most significant ski regions with access technology tailor-made to meet requirements on-location.
To make these solutions a reality, we always seek motivated new employees interested in international work for various departments. Vacancies and job openings are regularly posted at http://www.skidata.com/en/career/open-positions.html

English Press Releases

A department introduces itself: Research & Development at SKIDATA

Frank (Senior Vice President of R&D) provides insight

A department introduces itself: Research & Development at SKIDATA

Research & Development at SKIDATA

Frank was VP of Embedded Security for the Kudelski Group, SKIDATA´s parent company, for five years before taking over management of product development at SKIDATA in September 2012. Prior to this, he was Infineon´s Design Center Director from 2000 until 2007. There he worked for the German development location in Nuremburg and thus gained extensive experience for this demanding task. In his free time, Frank is a passionate snowboarder and water sports fan.

In this interview he tells us which developments his team in Research and Development is currently working on and what is especially important to him when it comes to teamwork.

JOIN our TEAM – a diverse range of tasks in international teams

„The most up-to-date innovations, being one step ahead of the competition, reliable products, on-time solutions and developments of the highest quality – these are the things we commit ourselves to and the things which characterize work in R&D,“ says Frank during the interview.

Research & Development is responsible for the entire product development at SKIDATA. There is excitement for everyone in this range of tasks:

– Development of classic client server systems for the areas of parking management and personal access
– Development of cloud-based access solutions; for example, for destination management – that means connecting singular access and management solutions in the areas of events, mountain sports regions and parking management. Through this we make additional functions such as reservations, online ticket purchase, remote maintenance and surveillance of systems as well as B2C and B2B solutions available to our customers.
– Design and development of access hardware, such as access readers, barrier gates, parking columns and paying and vending machines
– Quality assurance for hardware, software and system solutions in order to guarantee flawless, reliable operation for customers.

Each member of the R&D team is part of the larger whole in new and ongoing developments or system integration of the many solutions over the entire lifecycle of a product.

R&D is positioned around the world with development locations in Grödig and Klagenfurt in Austria and teams in France, the USA and India – subdivided into the areas of software development, quality assurance, hardware development and project management office. „Even within the team it is becoming more international: meetings in English are part of our everyday work,“ explains Frank.

Thus R&D is currently in a phase of internationalization: staff in the software and system development departments, especially for cloud-based systems, project management, quality assurance, test automation, electronic component development and mechatronics, are always in demand. „When it comes to new employees, I value not only essential technical knowledge, but also very good English skills, social competence and eagerness to work in an international, intercultural team. Those who think in a solution-oriented manner and value professional teams and a modern development environment have come to the right place. These dynamics require that you always stay up-to-date with technical progress and are open to new, innovative ideas and change in international markets,“ continues Frank.

The great work environment; the high level of dedication and the staff´s passion for their work; the international environment; and technological challenges in rapidly changing times are what Frank enjoys the best about SKIDATA. „SKIDATA has great potential as an innovative company. Here you can really make a difference,“ Frank concludes.

Plunet integrates Welocalize platform Falcon

Plunet integrates Welocalize platform Falcon

Plunet – Translation Mangement System

Suppliers and end customers benefit from efficient management processes

The new software integration allows all Welocalize vendors using Plunet as their central translation management system to automate and accelerate their project workflows.

Welocalize is a leading international localization and translation service provider. More than 1,000 global brands and organizations in the technology, consumer, manufactoring and legal sectors have put their trust in Welocalize as a preferred language services partner for achieving their global growth strategies. The company assigns more than ten thousand individual projects to hundreds of subcontracting translation agencies via their proprietary Falcon system.

Plunet is one of the leading providers for business and translation management software worldwide. Specifically developed for the language industry, Plunet BusinessManager is the solution most Welocalize vendors use for their translation management. Translation agencies of all sizes, as well as corporate language departments, governmental offices and non-governmental institutions use Plunet for the management of their translation projects and corresponding business processes.

The new Plunet interface will help synchronize key project processes between the two systems, will minimize redundant and time-consuming workflows, and support overall end-to-end quality assurance. Plunet calls up all tasks received via the Falcon system, and automatically creates comprehensive quotes in the Plunet system of the relevant supplier. All relevant information, including the associated end customer, project name and description, delivery dates and language combinations are created automatically in Plunet, saving time and increasing productivity. The system will then suggest appropriate price lists, and delivers an automated price calculation.

The delivery of the project files to the Welocalize supplier occurs directly via a Plunet download link delivered as part of the Falcon Log. The Falcon Log, which was also integrated in Plunet, and which can be updated both manually and automatically, contains the entire project communication of the end customer with the supplier.

A Welocalize supplier can furthermore accept the quote directly in Plunet, and transform it straight into a job order. The quote can optionally be declined, or a deadline extension and additional information can be requested. The project status is automatically updated in Plunet as the project progresses, prompting a parallel update of the task status in Falcon.

Plunet and the responsible project managers at Welocalize welcomed the successful implementation of the integration with enthusiasm. Sufian Reiter, VP Sales at Plunet Inc, stresses the technological impact this development will have for the entire translation industry: „Our new Welocalize interface leads the way towards the future of our technology. Plunet’s dynamic integration with leading CAT tools has long become industry standard, as well as an indispensable part of the workflow automation at a large number of innovative companies. In future, the main objective will be the provision of end-to-end solutions for the entire value-add chain – from the end customer via large multi-language vendors like Welocalize, right down to their subcontracting suppliers.“

„The integration of Plunet with our proprietary client portal and account management system, Falcon, helps us streamline workflow, decrease production time and eliminate duplicative tasks for both clients and our vendors,“ said Derek Coffey, vice president of technology at Welocalize. „We are excited to partner with a market leader like Plunet.“

About Welocalize
Welocalize, Inc., founded in 1997, offers innovative translation and localization solutions helping global brands to grow and reach audiences around the world in more than 125 languages. Our solutions include global localization management, translation, supply chain management, people sourcing, language services and automation tools including MT, testing and staffing solutions and enterprise translation management technologies. With over 600 employees worldwide, Welocalize maintains offices in the United States, UK, Germany, Ireland, Japan and China. www.welocalize.com

Targetprocess 3 bringt Visualisierung und Flexibilität in Projektmanagement ein

Targetprocess führt neue Funktionalitäten ein, die eine generelle Verbesserung der Produktivität von Software-Abteilungen und -Unternehmen bewirken, indem visuelle Methoden zur Datenverarbeitung in der IT Einzug halten.

Targetprocess 3 bringt Visualisierung und Flexibilität in Projektmanagement ein

Targetprocess, ein führendes Unternehmen im Bereich der Entwicklung agiler Projektmanagment-Software, gab kürzlich die Verfügbarkeit einer rund erneuerten Version seines Produktes bekannt und übernimmt damit eine Vorreiterrolle im Bereich der Visual Management Software. Targetprocess 3 bietet eine Reihe neuartiger Wege, um Informationen zu visualisieren und zu manipulieren, Arbeit über mehrere Teams hinweg zu verfolgen und die Entwicklung mit Geschäftsinitiativen abzugleichen. Mit dieser neuesten Version verstärkt Targetprocess“ seinen Einsatz für eine Projektmanagement-Lösung, die Visualisierung und Flexibiltät als Kerneigenschaften nutzt, um es modernen Unternehmen zu ermöglichen, klügere und erfolgreichere Entscheidungen zu treffen.

Heutige Unternehmen müssen innovativ sein, um konkurrenzfähig zu bleiben, und dem dürfen die Werkzeuge, die sie dabei unterstützen wollen, in nichts nachstehen. Targetprocess wurde mit dem Ziel entwickelt, Transparenz ins Management zu bringen und ist dadurch das visuellste und flexibelste Werkzeug auf dem Markt. Targetprocess 3 bietet seinen Nutzern eine Fülle an neuen Funktionen, einschließlich der Möglichkeit Arbeit visuell auf einer Zeitachse zu planen und zu verfolgen, Karten (die Arbeit repräsentieren) anzupassen und beliebig viele persönliche und geteilte Ansichten zu erstellen, die am besten zu den aktuellen Aufgaben passen. Ein Projektmanager oder Product Owner bekommt so bspw. ganz schnell eine Ansicht zur Planung von Produkt-Releases oder zur Priorisierung komplexer Backlogs über mehrere Projekte hinweg. Ebenso schnell erstellt sich ein Account Manager eine Ansicht, um Anfragen von seinen Kunden im Blick zu behalten. Targetprocess ist zudem nicht nur eine reine Web-Applikation, sondern auch als native iOS-App und demnächst auch als Android-App zu haben, um als ständiger Begleiter stets den aktuellen Projektstatus darzustellen.

„Nach zweieinhalb Jahren Entwicklungsarbeit, unterstreicht die Veröffentlichung dieser neuen Version von Targetprocess nicht nur unsere Bereitschaft unseren Nutzern ein gutes, agiles Projektmanagement Tool an die Hand zu geben, sondern vor allem auch, dass wir ein Tool erschaffen, um auf schnelle und visuelle Weise mit jeder erdenklichen Menge von Daten und Projekten beliebiger Komplexität zu arbeiten.“ sagt Michael Dubakov, CEO von Targetprocess. „Für Unternehmen, die nun seit einer Weile mit agilen Methoden arbeiten, ist nicht die Unterstützung eines bestimmten Prozesses, wie Scrum oder Kanban, das wichtigste bei einem Tool. Stattdessen suchen diese Unternehmen ein Tool, das sich mit Leichtigkeit an ihre stetig wandelnden Prozesse anpasst und es jedem Nutzer ermöglicht sich auf die, für ihn wichtigsten, Informationen zu fokussieren.“

Weitere Funktionalitäten in Targetprocess 3 sind zum Beispiel: Relations-Diagramme, Update der Ansichten in Echtzeit, Interaktive Charts, Audit History und die Veröffentlichung von Ansichten (für Nutzer ohne Account). Targetprocess 3 ist einerseits in der Cloud verfügbar, andererseits als selbst gehostete Installation. Um es gleich ausprobieren zu können, gibt es eine kostenlose Version mit vollem Funktionsumfang für 5 Nutzer. Darüber hinaus kostet jeder Nutzer 25$ pro Monat.
