Significant test time savings and much faster reporting of important metrics are key features of this exciting upgrade.

BEAVERTON, Oregon., November 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Audio precision®which is part of Axiometrix Solutions, today released version 8.0 of its highly advanced APx500 measurement software. Version 8.0 features software performance optimizations that reduce unnecessary calculations and speed up sequence execution. This results in significant test time savings and much faster reporting of important measurements such as THD+N.

In version 8.0 of the APx500 software, Audio Precision allows users to access THD+N results using the FastSweep stimulus in Continuous Sweep, Acoustic Response, and Loudspeaker Production tests.

“Version 8.0, coupled with our steady cadence of APx500 software enhancements, allows users to take advantage of measurement scalability and efficiency, and experience savings of up to 40% on test”, declares Daniel Knight, CEO of Audio Précision. “This upgrade reinforces our philosophy of providing a continuous program of improvements that not only saves customers time and money, but also increases the value of their new and existing analyzers.”

This latest version incorporates updates from Bose® SoneTrac, allowing users to perform SoneTrac measurements in the same way as Bose to benefit from finer control of signal processing in detecting friction and hum faults.

Version 8.0 also allows users to access THD+N results using the FastSweep stimulus in continuous sweep, acoustic response, and loudspeaker production tests. As its name suggests, this extremely fast stepped frequency signal sweep offers several advantages over a logarithmically swept (chirp) sine wave signal, including an ability to sweep from low to high or high to low frequency, a lack of transient ripples at low or high frequencies, support for measuring harmonics above the 20th, and precise control over the number of discrete points used in measurements.

“Audio Precision’s strength lies in providing elite audio analysis, audio measurement software and a wide range of modules, options and accessories to support audio measurement. analog and digital, Dan Knight adds. “Our version 8.0 software aims to give engineers the analysis tools they need to support their own processes for designing and manufacturing innovative products.”

As part of its upgrade path, Audio Precision’s most recent software updates include v7.1 and v7.0. Version 7.1 provides built-in support for measurement units and improves the presentation of input units, allowing users to scale any input to the native unit domain of that physical input or to Volts, FS, Pascals or Amps; while v7.0 enables the use of FastSweep in open-loop test scenarios, such as smart speaker testing.

To ensure that Audio Precision customers never miss the latest software updates, the company also offers software subscriptions available in one, three or five year increments. This gives users full access to optional APx measurements for the duration of their subscription (excluding PESQ and PLQA) at no additional cost.

Recession-proof your software business – The Information https://turtlenecksoftware.com/recession-proof-your-software-business-the-information/ Thu, 27 Oct 2022 17:24:20 +0000 https://turtlenecksoftware.com/recession-proof-your-software-business-the-information/ Is growth at all costs still an effective strategy in a recession-prone economic landscape?

Is growth at all costs still an effective strategy in a recession-prone economic landscape? This was the subject discussed in a panel moderated by Kevin McLaughlin, journalist for The Information. His guests included Prem Ananthakrishnanmanaging director and software manager at Accenture; Anu Bharadwaj, chief operating officer at Atlassian; and Lara Caimi, Director of Customers and Partners at ServiceNow.

A change in the mindset of growth at all costs

McLaughlin kicked off the discussion by asking what companies can or should do to balance growth and profitability. The question is particularly relevant, said Accenture’s Prem Ananthakrishnan, because many companies he advises have never faced a recession. “If you look at software, it’s a really young industry. Most companies are less than 25 years old. Many companies were born in the last 10 years and they have never experienced a recessionary environment. They had abundant access to capital, and operations were never a priority for some of these companies. And now I think that has to change. How do you balance profitability and growth as you enter this new business era? »

Lara Caimi of ServiceNow added: “Even if you look at what drove valuations a year ago versus today…a year ago it was very clearly growth. Now it’s much more balanced. She added: “The rule of 40 [the principle that a software company’s combined growth rate and profit margin should equal or exceed 40%] matter now. I think that’s what you’re seeing reflected in the market, which is pushing the operational imperatives of software vendors in a different way than in the last decade.

Atlassian’s Anu Bharadwaj is also seeing a shift in balance for its customers. “Companies are moving towards sustainability now and making sure that they have a track for the next few years where you can stabilize the business and continue to grow at a reasonable pace. I think it’s actually helpful for investors as well as for companies to really focus on the fundamentals of the business, and not to over-index on one aspect of the business or the other.It really allows companies to survive in the longer term.

Which companies are well positioned to weather a recession and which are not?

In his experience, Ananthakrishnan believes that companies that strike the right balance between growth and profitability, and invest in the future, have the best chance of weathering a downturn. “These companies are definitely in a better position. And when you talk about profitability, it boils down to things like cash flow. Do you have abundant capital? How did you manage this capital? And then it also depends on your portfolio allocation. Where exactly did you invest? »

He pointed out that companies with deep cash reserves that can still invest in growth are well positioned to emerge winners from a recession. And the companies that aren’t as well positioned to weather the storm are those that have focused on growth rather than profitability. “Let’s say you’re a company that’s grown 80%, 90%, but you’ve grown at the cost of good operating margins and you have negative cash flow. Then you need to take drastic measures.

Caimi relied on the idea that companies that thrive during a recession have made significant investments in their operations. “Digital transformation remains a priority, whether in times of growth or in more difficult times, as it drives automation. This creates opportunities to increase the experience of your employees, which is essential as we have “There’s still a talent war going on. And that’s driving the customer experience. The winners coming out of recessions tend to be companies that look at their customers and treat them in a way that builds loyalty.”

Bharadwaj added two other factors that she says are key to overcoming a recession: having a large customer base and having a must-have rather than a nice-to-have item, for example, a painkiller versus a vitamin. “As we see with many of our own market partners, if customers don’t have access to the applications they need…it’s really so critical that business stops. Being in these kinds of critical segments is definitely a big perseverance perseverance.

All In on the channels

McLaughlin then steered the conversation towards distribution partners. What he’s seen time and time again is how, in tough times, companies typically back down from working with channel partners, invariably to their detriment.

Ananthakrishnan emphasized the importance of distribution partnerships. “First of all, I would say that using channels to acquire and serve customers is a great way to gain efficiency… So start investing in channels if you’re not. But I think it’s really important to figure out what the right channels are and how to optimize the channels you’ve been working with in the context of changing buyer behaviors and preferences. »

Caimi accepted. “Channel is an important way to scale, but you need to be clear about the role of channel partners and how you can engage them to drive mutual sales and delivery outcomes. For ServiceNow, a great partner is one who can take their expertise, put it on our platform, and pull the platform into new areas where, frankly, we don’t have the expertise or the resources to put some of these solutions on the market.

Bharadwaj shared his positive experiences working with distribution partners. “It’s quite difficult for companies to build and sustain an economy around them without really associating deeply and broadly with channel partners. For us personally, working with Marketplace partners has been a wonderful and constructive force – truly a force multiplier – to ensure that our users not only experience Atlassian products, but that we are able to build businesses and livelihoods for thousands of other channel partners. able to accompany us in the long term.

The right balance is the key

As companies increasingly look down on what could be a complicated long-term recession, discussions like these are crucial. Finding the right balance between growth and profitability is key to surviving, and even thriving, in a downturn.

The consequences of overstretching a business for growth in an uncertain economic environment can be severe. As Prem Ananthakrishnan said, “If you’ve focused on growth at all costs, you’re kind of in trouble right now.”

Based in Edmonton aerial trail has quietly grown its aviation business over the past five years, relying on referrals and direct sales to grow its customer base among aviation customers not on most people’s radars.

“It’s a pretty low-key type of business…Regional aviation tends to be very focused on putting its nose down and just getting the job done,” said Bradley Poulette, Founder and CEO of Air Trail, noting that his company ends up acting the same way.

Air Trail provides compliance automation software that helps pilots and airlines track operational details that need to be reported to regulators like Transport Canada, replacing paper records or internal spreadsheets companies have tend to be used for crew tracking, flight and maintenance logs, and weight and balance. . The software is geared toward what Poulette called the behind-the-scenes but crucial operators that people don’t usually think of when they think of an airline — medevac pilots, dust collectors, charter flights, and the like.

The company was part of the first cohort of Alberta Innovates Revenue Acceleratormanaged by GrowthX, which has helped the company grow significantly, COO Brandon Kwong said in a Linkedin post.

Sales cycles are long in the aviation industry, so some of the deals made during Air Trail’s time in the accelerator were already happening, Poulette said. “However, I will also say that there were opportunities in our pipeline that were blocked, which GrowthX helped us unlock,” he added.

Pilots often make thousands of trips a year, with thousands of additional logbooks to complete for each flight. It’s easy to get it wrong given the cumbersome and tedious paperwork, fast turnaround times, and hectic schedules.

“For example, a lot of times someone can miss signing a document or putting the wrong date or something like that. And it takes a human being to go through each individual record,” Poulette explained. “So it takes a lot of time for these operators to review and detect errors like this. While Air Trail not only helps them detect errors like this, but also helps them prevent errors easily preventable when they entered to begin with.”

Chat is a priority area for Yulu’s customer-facing team. Most customers want to interact quickly with the company when faced with an issue on the road and don’t want to wait. Freshchat’s bot capabilities have dramatically reduced inbound chat volumes by 30% by providing real-time resolution.

“The ability to witness team performance in real-time using dashboards helps us define metrics to delight our customers and Freshworks analytics provide deeper, actionable insights into agent performance, ticket trends and more to help optimize and make data-driven decisions to improve the overall support efficiency and experience we provide,” adds Mishra.

“Today’s consumers need and expect fast support,” said Karthik Rajaram, Vice President of Sales at Freshworks. “When a business is evolving as rapidly as Yulu, scalable technology is essential. We are excited to empower Yulu to create futuristic customer experiences.”

Oldham-based tax self-assessment software provider GoSimpleTax has secured £250,000 in funding which will help create nine jobs and boost its growth strategy.

Funding for the investment comes from NPIF-FW Capital Debt Finance, managed by FW Capital and part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF).

GoSimpleTax is growing rapidly at 30% annually, which is expected to grow further with increased demand for online self-assessment software following the expansion of the government’s “Making Tax Digital for Income Tax Self-Assessment” initiative. which starts in April 2023 and comes into full effect in April 2024.

Making Tax Digital requires managing tax affairs with HMRC using compatible software.

VAT registered businesses have already been affected by the Making Tax Digital changes and this becomes applicable to Income Tax Self Assessment (ITSA) taxpayers.

This will affect sole traders, landlords and others who currently report taxable income of over £10,000 a year via self-assessment, or around 4.2 million people. The first tranche of taxpayers will have to submit their returns using third-party software up to four to five times a year in real time rather than annually in arrears.

Founded in 2013, the GoSimpleTax team have over 100 years of combined experience in the accountancy industry and started the business to create a self-assessment solution for individuals to submit their tax returns to HMRC without the need for an accountant.

The cloud-based software uses artificial intelligence designed to offer prompts to help businesses calculate the correct tax, while ensuring no allowances or savings are missed. The GoSimpleTax app is used by over 10,000 individuals and businesses to complete and submit their annual tax returns.

Amanda Swales, Director of GoSimpleTax, said: “Since our inception nine years ago, we have gone from strength to strength and are now entering a period of significant growth due to increased demand for our services. . Investment funding from NPIF-FW Capital Debt Finance helps us strengthen our team with nine new jobs and facilitate our future growth strategy.

Andy Traynor, Chief Investment Officer at FW Capital, said, “GoSimpleTax is experiencing explosive growth and has introduced an award-winning software solution that takes the stress and burden out of completing and submitting your tax return. I’m excited to work with GoSimpleTax and provide investment capital that will help take the business to the next level of success and support individuals with the changes in self-assessment rules. »

Sean Hutchinson, of the British Business Bank, said: “The NPIF plays a vital role in supporting small businesses in the North. We’re proud to work with FW Capital to champion companies like GoSimpleTax, to help with continued growth and innovation in the region, and it’s fantastic to see the tangible difference the fund has made.

In part two of this series, we look at the HR industry and the benefits of using cloud-based software.

HR software is now the preferred solution for many companies, replacing outdated paper-based HR methods, filing cabinets and disjointed systems, such as spreadsheets and Word documents.

In today’s digitally connected world, companies are turning to cloud-based systems on the Internet for many business functions, and in particular HR.

The benefits of cloud-based HR systems

There are many reasons to use cloud-based software within your HR functions, from managing and tracking personal information (including: compensation, skills, training and achievements) to providing self-service options for leave requests. Dedicated HR software can also reduce the burden on HR staff, allowing them to focus on the people they serve.

  • Compliance management: Ensuring your team is up to date with HR and labor laws is essential and cloud solutions make this process efficient as you can adapt your procedures and features when needed.
  • Data overview: All your data and information is efficiently stored in one place, allowing you to have a more detailed analysis of each employee.
  • Efficiency: Adopting online software reduces the number of administrative tasks, because cloud-based software handles much of that for you.
  • Centralization: Everything is in one place with cloud-based HR software. This means you can access essential data wherever you are. All your data is housed in one central repository, which means nothing gets lost.
  • Profitable: Some legacy software systems can be expensive, while many cloud-based HR services offer a range of budget options and, in some cases, can save your company significant savings.
  • HMRC Responsibilities: Payroll software can facilitate the accounting of staff payments, including the accurate and automatic submission of PAYE information to HMRC. Although you can buy standalone payroll packages, it may be better to buy it as a bundle with your financial reporting software.

In April 2019, Making Tax Digital for VAT came into force requiring registered businesses with a taxable turnover of over £85,000 to keep records digitally and file their VAT returns using ‘a software.

N-able named mike cullen as Managing Director of RMM – the software company’s remote monitoring and management business focused on MSP partners.

Mike Cullen, General Manager of N-able’s RMM business

The move surfaces ahead of N-able Empower 2022, an MSP conference scheduled for October 3-5 in Las Vegas.

Cullen is a household name in the MSP technology market and ranks among the pioneers of the industry. He was part of the core team that built N-able since its inception around 2000.

Long before the MSP wave became mainstream, Cullen helped N-able’s partners transition to monthly recurring revenue (MRR) while the software company competed against competitors such as Dell Silverback, Level Platforms, Kaseya , Nimsoft and Zenith Infotech, among many others. .

Cullen has also navigated several N-able ownership models, including selling the company to SolarWinds for $120 million in May 2013, and the N-able spinoff of SolarWinds in mid-2021.

N-able RMM: Market Competition and the Role of Mike Cullen

Fast forward to today. N-able ($NABL) now has a market cap of $1.65 billion, according to SeekingAlpha. And the RMM market has consolidated around ConnectWise, Kaseya, N-able and NinjaOne – with newcomers like Atera and Syncro MSP also in the mix.

John Pagliuca, CEO, Nable

N-able is still growing, but it’s a safe bet that CEO John Pagliuca wants to accelerate that growth. In this context, Cullen now oversees the strategic direction of N-able’s RMM platforms and complementary portfolio while “remaining close to N-able’s Head Nerds, Market Development and Customer Success teams”, said said the company.

When it comes to RMM products, N-able offers two main platforms:

Dig a little deeper and you’ll see that N-able RMM is based on the acquisition of LogicNow in 2016, while N-central’s roots go back to the founding of N-able around 2000.

In a prepared statement on Cullen’s new role, the CEO of N-able John Pagliuca said:

“Build it and they will come, that’s not how we do it today. Our industry and our business are built on trust, true partnership and ongoing collaboration. Cullen has worked in this field for many years and is often referred to as the “Godfather of the MSP Industry” by our partners. By formalizing Cullen’s role and utilizing those years of knowledge, we are demonstrating our commitment to listen more and do more to ensure our MSPs remain the MVPs of the markets they serve now and in the future. The channel’s influence is too valuable and the need to run everything as a service is too great not to capitalize on it and move forward together.

Cullen added:

“For nearly two decades, N-able’s business and technology resources have followed the roadmap of helping MSPs establish, grow and scale their business, from managing point solutions to everything as a service for small, medium, and large business accounts. We want to show the market that N-able’s people, processes, and technologies are a perfect fit for any MSP, at any point in their journey. The future of our industry is promising, and now is the time for N-able and our MSPs to scale their operations, expanding our current business volume and simultaneously landing more business together.

Stay tuned for more updates from the N-able Empower 2022 conference. ChannelE2E will be blogging live from the event onsite.

SAN JOSE, CA., September 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — S2C, a global leader in FPGA-based prototyping solutions, today announces Neuro, a software program that provides comprehensive management capabilities for enterprise-scale prototyping environments. Through a flexible browser-based interface, Neuro offers a wealth of management and control capabilities spanning four executive functions:

User Management – this includes setting up user accounts, defining groups, assigning managers and setting access permissions.

Resource management – provides resource allocation to users and projects, sharing resources, checking hardware status, and performing check-in/check-out of hardware.

Remote hardware control – allows fast FPGA configuration either by download or by embedded SD card, provides virtual switches and indicators for interfacing with hardware, monitors voltages, currents and temperatures, and runs diagnostics on items such as clocks, I/O and interconnects.

Reports and Messaging – the system provides usage reports broken down by users, groups or projects. It can monitor and report out-of-limit voltage, current, and temperature conditions with automatic email notification.

“Neuro offers a new level of control over the entire prototyping environment,” said Toshio Nakama, CEO of S2C. “We’ve built a number of powerful features into Neuro that bring real practical benefits to our customers.”

Centralized resource management, for example, enables efficient hardware allocation, resulting in less downtime and more uptime. Remote diagnostics such as clock and I/O checks help preserve the functional integrity of a prototype. Fast downloads allow quick execution of design iterations and improvements. And automatic notification of conditions such as overcurrent and overheating work to increase reliability and extend equipment life.

“Our user base has grown both in the number of prototypes deployed and in the complexity of the prototypes people are building,” says Nakama. “As a result, they need more sophisticated tools to manage their environments and maximize the ROI of their prototyping platforms. And that’s where Neuro comes from.”

Availablity

Neuro is now available. For more information, please contact your local S2C sales representative or visit www.s2cinc.com
