Welcome to the fifth edition of the Developers Diaries. This time we are taking a trip to marketing, because developments for our new product line are also taking place there.
After working on the next software generation for a quite some time, we decided to develop and present a new product name in addition to the software. Visitors to our Open Day in October 2018 and readers of this blog may already be familiar with the new name.
Until recently, PEAKTOURe was only the internal project name for the development of the new software. However, we believe that the name stands both for the values of our company and for the actual product. Thus, after successfully securing the trademark rights, we will use the name for our complete software product range.
The name PEAKTOURe consists of several parts with a respective meaning:
PEAK - because it is our goal to always be at the top. We want and will be at the top with our new product.
TOUR - because reaching the goal will be a longer tour. Later we want to accompany the customer on the way to his personal goal with our product.
e - Originally the "e" was used to convert PEAK and TOUR into the English word picture [ˈpikʧə (r)]. and to establish the connection to CAD. Since PEAKTOURe will be more than CAD and the derivation was a bit too complicated, we finally decided against it. We liked the "e" anyway and that's why it's still there.
We are also a little proud that the meanings of the individual parts of the name can be transferred 1: 1 to our company philosophy. We at RG Technologies support and accompany the customer on the way to his goal. We have already prepared a story on this topic, which will soon be published on our homepage. I highly recommend this.
PEAKTOURe will stand for a complete product range. We have already divided these into several themes with different modules:
- PEAKTOURe develop - the 2D and already existing 3D application.
- PEAKTOURe organise - calculations, parts lists, work plans and order management.
- PEAKTOURe produce - nesting and cutting. We have already started implementing. More on this in one of the next blogs.
- PEAKTOURe collect - statistics and evaluations.
- PEAKTOURe integrate - server and the already completed boot manager
Unfortunately we don't have an official logo yet. I can only promise you one thing at the moment, it will be mountainous.
Stay online and best regards
