SBRI Competition Win

The iansyst team is once again celebrating! We’ve been awarded government funding to develop new life-changing technologies at a recent Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition.

The ‘Plain Sailing’ competition encouraged the development of technology solutions to suit specific public sector needs and to enhance learners’ skills through improved social and educational communication. Entrants were encouraged to develop products that enable users to produce and navigate digital information independently, anytime, anywhere and in a user-friendly way.

We have been awarded a share of £250,000 of funding to develop our proposal of MyDocStore. MyDocStore will use cloud, desktop and mobile based file management to address the missing link in the accessible transfer of files with users’ preferences for accessing all forms of digital resources. It aims to make it quick and easy to transfer files between devices, converting them into the user’s preferred format - whether text, audio or a combination of both.
We will now work alongside the Electronics and Computer science department at Southampton University and Raspberry Software Ltd, to develop the proposal and have been given six months to do so.

Abi James, Head of Product Innovation for iansyst, comments: “Using the most recent developments in mobile technology, we believe we can create a fantastic tool for people wanting to access documents wherever they are, in a format that suits their needs.”
