Meet the Multi-Million dollar tech start-up, from Silicon Valley, which will invigorate the Middle East Social Media Landscape!

tintInternet penetration within the region enjoys some of the highest rates of growth witnessed anywhere across the globe. According to www.internetworldstats.com, the Middle East has witnessed a 3000% increase in internet penetration since 2000. And mobile penetration rates are the highest in the world.

But digital media spend is not following consumer habits and is lagging at <5% of total advertising budgets in the Middle East.

This is changing fast and it is the opportunity being targeted by TINT (www.tintup.com), a social media hub that allows a brand to integrate all its followers and fans onto a single screen and encourage them to share to increase public interaction and engagement.

The Opportunity for Digital Out of Home in the Middle East

Currently, international brands spend 14% of their marketing budget on outdoor advertising as per Pan Arab Studies & Research Company [Parc] 2013 figures, but this market is dominated by static and traditional displays. The industry will have to modernise as consumers demand it and as policy makers drive forward smart city initiatives.

TINT is able to increase the ROI of DOOH ads by turning each viewer impression into hundreds of social impressions through social sharing. The concept is simple; create ads that incentivize people to share to win a prize, also known as #Hashtag to win. TINT’s platform allows anyone to connect a page, handle or hashtag from any social network and then display it on websites, mobile apps, retail TV displays, event walls, or huge jumbotrons. In doing so, TINT is providing the perfect solution to manage content in real time that will provide the fuel to power up the digital marketing industry in the Middle East.

Focus Softnet: Unveiling The Future At GITEX 2014

focus2014 has been an exciting year for Focus Softnet so far. Our team has been working hard on developing an ERP solution that is all set to future-proof businesses! It is the most anticipated launch for all our customers.

Over the years, Focus Softnet has developed and upgraded its solutions by taking customer feedback into consideration. ‘Enabling Customer Vision’ has always been Focus’ USP. With our new next-generation ERP, we have ensured that the features were developed based on existing customers’ feedback and recommendations.

Our development team has also used feedback from our basic research using a SWOT analysis, market trends, consumer feedback, company’s R&D department, Focus groups, employees, salespeople, and ethnographic discovery (searching for user patterns and habits) methods. Our team had to develop techniques to build an application that could cope with heterogeneous platforms and execution environments and ensure fast quality delivery.

This is the first time in many years especially after the upgrade from DOS to Windows that we have developed a product that has been fully redesigned both at the user interface level and the database structure.

Developing this solution was not at all easy! Working on a new technology platform and overcoming the structural restrictions of the previous versions were some of our biggest challenges. The new product design has helped us overcome many of the user-level restrictions that created a few limitations during earlier implementations. Our aim with designing this new ERP was to build trust in the minds of our customers.

At GITEX Technology Week 2014, we are all set to unveil the future! Watch this space to know more about our latest innovation!
