New York, NY, December 22, 2012 --(PR.com)-- The effectiveness feature that was missing in e-mail processing.
eRank Technologies (www.erank.pro) today announced the launch of eRank® 1.0, an effectiveness app for e-mail processing. It is intended for teams, companies and organizations. eRank 1.0 comes with innovative features such as eRank-designed Priority Matrix®, a language composed of five priority levels; Distraction Inbox®, an informative Inbox; and Concentration Inbox®, which empowers executives to concentrate on the e-mails that come first.
“eRank was designed to help people become e-mail athletes,” said Joe Castrovera, eRank´s CEO. “With our genuine interest on executive concentration, the e-mail processing experience takes a whole new dimension. With eRank, more than six unique features make debut in e-mail communication. eRank is the ultimate in e-mail processing.”
One of eRank´s intrinsic value is reciprocity. As Harvard´s Mathematical Biologist, Martin Nowak points out, “What is very important for efficient reciprocity is language.” eRank 1.0 is based on a form of common language between users called Priority Matrix® –a proprietary measurement system composed of five Priority Levels with four specific criterias for each: (1) Level: Five simple but powerful priority levels with which the Sender can label his e-mails. They range from P0 (the utmost urgent) to P4 (non-urgent); (2) Color: A descriptive, easy to recognize individual pantone that reflects a from hot-to-cold feeling; (3) Time: Time is the only non-renewable resource and all Priority Levels except one (P4) have what we call an Estimated Time of Response (ETR). It ranges from within seconds (P0) to up to seven days (P3); and (4) Definition: An easy to understand description of each Priority Level with common uses. Rather than people continue hitting “Send” indiscriminately, this “language” makes users consider empathy, priority, and effectiveness before doing so.
eRank 1.0 revolutionizes the Inbox. At eRank, the old Inbox is now called Distraction Inbox® –the new generation in Inboxes. It is informative and action oriented. It is your familiar Inbox where all your e-mails are displayed in the order they are received –but labeled. A highly visible priority icon* besides each e-mail according to the Priority Matrix® empowers the user to take action.
eRank 1.0 is proud to introduce Concentration Inbox®. It is how e-mail effectiveness looks like: E-mails categorized according to shared priority levels within your organization. It is a place of mutual exchange of benefits. It is where Corporate E-mail Athletes – paraphrasing Peter Drucker - show their courage to impose on time and events his or her own decision as to what e-mails really matter and come first. Concentration Inbox® is where the users transition from reading e-mails randomly to doing so by shared priorities. Once you hit the Concentration Inbox Button on the Distraction Inbox®, you access the Concentration Inbox® screen with its five buttons at the bottom, one for each of the Priority Matrix® levels –with their own counter indicator. In sum, users not only get their messages labeled in the informative Distraction Inbox®, but also classified by priority levels in the amazing Concentration Inbox®. It is e-mail concentration made possible.
“eRank goes beyond the e-mail overwhelm issue,” adds Castrovera. “It casts a flux of positive energy that we call eRank adrenaline –the power of knowing that every e-mail in your organization is labeled based on shared levels of importance and replied within an expected time of response.”
Other than that eRank was inspired on the DEFCON* System, what makes eRank stand out are three things: Its vision is not based on “me” only but also on “us”; its structure is not based on a predictive algorithm but on a shared language; and its solution is not overengineered. It is rather simple and powerful. More importantly, eRank is the result of a decade-strong, proven, best business practice turned into embeded software.
“In sum, eRank intends to help organizations transition from sending to talking. eRank is –paraphrasing Arthur Miller- an organization talking to itself,” ends Castrovera.
Availability & Pricing
eRank was launched to market worldwide on December 17th 2012 through the App Store. Two Apple versions have just been released: iPod and iPhone. Other platforms and versions like iPad will follow. However, you can download the iPhone version on the iPad. It won't display full screen, but the iPhone version feels comfortable. Plus, the iPad´s “2X” button converts the app almost to full screen.
eRank 1.0 is based on reMail, an open source Project by Google. Thus, it supports all accounts that run on IMAP Protocol and all those related to Gmail.
For a limited time, the app will be available free of charge on the App Store.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
