Scraim receives 50 thousand euros from Caixa Capital

Published on 2015-12-10

It's still eligible to receive another prize of 100 thousand euros by entering the “Caixa Empreender Awards” contest and it also aims to implant their business on the US market.

The spin-off project from Strongstep - Scraim - will receive funding equal to 50 thousand euros from Caixa Capital, stemming from the partnership between this Caixa Geral de Depósitos operation and the Carnegie Mellon University Portugal (CMU Portugal) program.

The project is recognized by the venture capital bank as the most promising out of four projects, developed during this year's edition of the inRes program, a CMU Portugal initiative for the acceleration of business projects.

Founded amidst the UPTEC context in Oporto, Scraim can still receive an aditional 100 thousand euros from the “Caixa Empreender Award”. The already obtained prize money will support the operation to raise the 1.2 million dollars that Strongstep's CEO Pedro Castro Henriques hopes to raise in order to guarantee the sustenance of the startup's activity on the US market.

Scraim settles its strategy in the providing of an online service for an integrated management of processes, which promotes the acceleration of international certifications' achievement progress as well as the relief of human labor and financial effort.

The spin-off states that it can reduce the certification period of management processes from 12 months to 3 and its costs from 180 thousand euros to 30 thousand, all this without resorting to external consultancy services.

This capacity is based in two key elements, as the CEO firmly declared during inRes 2015's results presentation. The first is the use of pre-developed processes that are adaptable and can cover all lifecycles while the second is the evaluation and automatic analysis of stock control with certifications in mind.

According to Castro Henriques, the service was born from the knowledge and experience accumulated from developingprojects in various companies and clients, such as BPI, Alert and the Hospital center of Vila Nova de Gaia.

“We noticed that the same problems were occurring over and over again during the certification process in many organizations”, he said.

At the moment the company is developing pilot-projects in the USA with the CMMI Institute, e360 and Kopo. It has established a partnership to provide the service through the World's largest investor based in Silicon Valley, the incubator Plug and Play. Finally, it has also partnered with the Founder Institute and the startup accelerator Thrill Mill.

The other 3 initiatives that took part on this year's edition of inRes were:

- Playsketch: a developer of applications that allow anyone to create mobile platform games through sketches made on paper which are scanned later on. It aims to explore the possibility of offering people the opportunity to create their own games. It has functional prototypes and is counting on launching their beta versions very soon.

- AdapTech: a biomedical company that develops smart and wearable technologies to help people with physical limitations. The product is a complete solution for the adaptation of prosthetics, able to optimize the patients' adaptation to the fitting.

- Sceelix: it owns a software with the same name that allows 3D game designers to create virtual and complex sets, such as fields, cities and forests in a more efficient and easy way. It provides a visual language to define rules and algorithms that produce these sets in an automatic way.

"Portuguese entrepreneurs visit Silicon Valley” featured at BIT!

Published on 2015-11-05

AdaptTech, Playsketch, Sceelix and Scraim were the companies which visited Silicon Valley this week under inRes, a business acceleration program sponsored by Carnegie Mellon University Portugal and financed by the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT).
These teams were joined by three startup teams who participated in the 2014 edition: AddVolt, Followprice and Xhockware.

João Claro, national director of CMU Portugal, said in a statement that "the four teams that are participating at this year's inRes have already gone through an intensive period of training and business development in Pittsburgh and CMU, where each team partook in more than 50 meetings, organized workshops with potential users and participated in events attended by potential customers, partners and investors." João Claro also reinforces that "this exposure to Silicon Valley will allow them to continue to apply and develop their communication, business and leadership skills of technology-based projects."

"The immersion in Silicon Valley appears linked to the presence of CMU in the region,allowing teams to establish contacts with the technological ecosystem and local entrepreneurship. Providing this proximity and access to business - as potential investors, partners or customers - has always been a concern of ours as an organization and the implementation has brought unique and very positive results", said João Claro.

During this week in Silicon Valley, the teams will visit and meet companies like Facebook, Twitter and Uber, will make presentations to potential users, partners and investors and will also have the opportunity to interact with business accelerators.
In a statement, those responsible for this program explain that inRes differentiates itself by being devoted to projects that are in a very critical and specific transition phase of development.

"Immersion in such a rich ecosystem of contacts acts as a driving factor for the teams' development and the assertion of its products and services in the market. That is a priceless advantage for the teams as it makes our entrepreneurs and their projects more competitive and strong in the market. In the meantime, this presence on site gives them knowledge and skills to better manage their startups today and in the future”, says the national director of the program.

Besides the presence in Silicon Valey, the support of Caixa Capital is also a novelty of this edition of inRes, where they will award a 50 000 EUR investment to one of the participant projects, which will also be eligible to collect an aditional 100 000 EUR investment under the “Caixa Empreender Award”.

On December 3rd, at Culturgest, the CMU Portugal Program will hold a closing session for the 2015 edition of inRes, which will feature the testimony of both the 2014 and 2015 teams in person.

Scraim has a brand new document management system!

Published on 2015-10-27

In addition to a completely renewed process module and menu, Scraim has also updated its document management system.

These changes are geared to improve communication and teamwork indexes by reducing the overall cost, complexity and time associated with managing a project's resources. With this new feature you will be able to sort your work in both documents and folders, each with their set of details to help you choose what's best for you. Documents can be organized by version/revision and blocked while both types can be deleted and be marked for e-mail notifications, which will be triggered every time a change is made.

It's also possible to create different kinds of symbolic links that will establish a quick gateway for your data. You can send them (or a direct reference for the folder/document of choice, should you prefer) via e-mail or simply let them sit on your work area. It's also possible to create special connections (or macros) in you Wiki directly to a document/folder or one of its gateways, all to help you cut the number of steps between you and your data down to the bare minimum.

Furthermore, you can move your stuff around more quickly in single manner or by bundling them in groups. Simply use the feature provided in the folder/document screen or either check the resources meant to change place or drag them to the assigned area and you'll be able to import and/or export your data more quickly.

All of this is already waiting for you. GET SCRAIMING!

Scraim is one of the four young entrepreneurial teams rocking the USA according to Oje!

Published on 2015-09-30

Read the original post (PT version) here: http://bit.ly/1LjNG8d

" Young Portuguese entrepreneurs emerge in the USFour teams of entrepreneurs - AdaptTech, Playsketch, Sceelix and Scraim - will carry out an intensive training and interrelationship schedule in the US city of Pittsburgh and on Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) under the inRES, a business acceleration program in the field of Information and Communication Technologies.

The program, sponsored by the CMU Portugal, allows portuguese entrepreneurs to have a workspace in Project Olympus, a business accelerator owned by CMU.


The agenda also includes attendance in various relevant initiatives in the field of entrepreneurship and innovation with LaunchCMU, an initiave promoted by CMU's Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, being one of the examples. There the INRES teams will showcase their projects not only by taking part in an exhibition but also through a pitch.

João Claro, national director of CMU Portugal, notes that the 2014 INRES edition "beyond their planned attendance, the teams also seized unpredictable opportunities to participate in events with prominent presences, such as Addvolt, which won a pitch contest that it ended up unexpectedly attending."

This year INRES has retained the support of Caixa Capital by assigning an investment of 50 000 euros to an integrant project of the 2015 edition, a project that will still be eligible to secure the additional investment of 100 000 euros under the "Caixa Empreender Award".

INRES is an initiative of the CMU Portugal program, financed by the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT) and supported by the Conselho de Reitores das Universidades Portuguesas (CRUP), in partnership with CMU,the Pittsburgh Regional Alliance (PRA),Caixa Capital ,the UTEN Portugal and INESC TEC. More information at www.cmuportugal.org.
The INRES teams in 2015:AdaptTech (www.adapttech.pt) - incubated in UPTEC, AdaptTech operates in the biomedical field, using innovative, smart and wearable technologies to improve the quality of life of people with physical limitations.

Playsketch (http://playsketch.net) - incubated at IPN, the Playsktech works in the area of games and is developing a solution that allows you to create a game through a drawing on paper.


Sceelix (www.sceelix.com) - a project that has a solution designed to improve the development of 3D environments in games, by creating scenarios and digital 3D elements in a simplified manner.


Scraim (www.scraim.com) - a Strongstep project, incubated in UPTEC with an online project management tool, which acts as a complete and easy to use SaaS multiplatform. "

Scraim is the profile of the week on Buzzmedia.pt!

Published on 2015-09-09

"We live in a world where the management of projects and people is a constant challenge for the organizations. The multiplicity of tasks involved in the development of a project and the geographical distance of the people who comprise it creates problems in the organizations, that leads to the search for solutions that often reinvent the wheel.

After many years helping organizations to solve these problems that occur over and over again, from startups and PMEs to recognized multinationals,, we realized how important it would be to create a solution that would allow greater flexibility and reliability in meeting the goals of a project, following international best practices. And so Scraim was born.

Combining the best of project management with process management, Scraim allows you to centralize all the information of the projects and processes of an organization in an online service accessible anytime, anywhere via the web or mobile app. It’s flexible and adapts to the specific needs of organizations, both in terms of size and business area.

Scraim was developed based on international best development practices for engineering and software quality, in order to enable managers of telecommunications, banking, health and information and communication sectors to improve their ability to comply with deadlines, budget and the quality of their projects.

We brought the best international engineering and management practices from many methodologies into the tool (Scrum, CMMI, ITMark, TSP / PSP, Six Sigma)., but the greatest added value involves the provision of turnkey development processes that allow users to start getting added value from the first minute they start using the tool.

When creating a new project, users can choose a development process that is ideal for that project. Scraim can adapt to the chosen process, phases and tasks that normally are present in this type of projects.

We recognize that there are already tools that do well some of the previous functions, however there are few that combine the best practices of both areas (project management and process management) in favor of software engineering. It is in this niche that we insert ourselves and where we want to highlight.

Thinking about internationalization, we submitted an application and were selected for the 2015 edition of the inRES, an initiative of the CMU Portugal Program. This allow us to participate in workshops led by international experts with an in-depth knowledge of global best practices in the areas of management, innovation and entrepreneurship.

In September, we're going to Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), in the United States, where we have a training program and the participation in events and multiple meetings that will allow us to know better the American reality and improve Scraim. This opportunity came at the right time, because we're making a big commitment on our internationalization. The United States is our main target market due to its size and the large number of companies that are certified or wish to be certified. We will be exposed to an environment that will make us stronger and more focused on the evolution of Scraim with the great goal of becoming a global service.

Developed in Portugal by a 100% portuguese team, Scraim is a spin-off of Strongstep company. It is the result of an I&D project in partnership with Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP), Multicert and Strongstep, under the slogan: Design by gurus, implemented by specialists and validated by the industry. Strongstep brought knowledge about the processes, good software development practices, and leadership of the consortium in the amount of half a million euros. FEUP was responsible for the design and implementation of part of the solution prototype bringing their technical and scientific knowledge. Multicert brought their security expertise to the project and represented the industry where the project pilots were conducted to validate the solution."

Workspace Launch!

Published on 2015-09-08

Scraim is once again making it easier for you!

With the Workspace, our latest feature, you can easily have an excellent overview of your team’s current work with this amazing visualization tool and know right away what to do next.


SHARING A COMMON WORKSPACE
Nowadays is very common to find multi-cultured and dispersed teams working together. In this kind of scenario its very easy for something to go wrong. Trying to keep the project activities synchronized in this chaotic environment is one of the main reasons why many projects fail.
Sharing a common workspace not only provides teams with the data and tools they need to achieve success, but also demonstrates their dedication and commitment to achieve their goals.


ALIGNED TEAMS
The Workspace unifies the data from all projects in one location and serves as a reliable single source of information which ensures that decisions are based on the most current and complete updates.
This platform promotes greater visibility and transparency by allowing team members to track the progress of other team members so that activities that are behind schedule are quickly identified, always on real time, and allowed to be prioritized.

 
Communication and collaboration are an important key to any project
