High-Tech Gründerfonds invests in yourTime Solutions GmbH
April 4, 2011
The Potsdam-based company yourTime Solutions GmbH gains High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF) as investor. Capital of about € 500,000 will support new development and market entry of the ‘yourMail’ software solution.
yourTime Solutions develops and markets software for professional, automated time and e-mail management. ‘yourMail’ is an initial product to be launched in 2011 that will return sovereignty to companies and their staff as well as private users over their inboxes.
The growing flood of e-mail is increasingly a burden on employees of businesses in all sectors. Ever more working time is lost and staff stress levels are rising. The team at yourTime Solutions has devised a comprehensive solution that makes a convincing case for itself in both commercial and user-oriented terms. The intelligent solution comprises all the ways of raising efficiency in dealing with the e-mail medium.
“Companies that counteract this problem with lasting solutions like ‘yourMail’ can tap major savings potential and enhance the satisfaction of their employees,” says Christine Schmidl, investment manager at High-Tech Gründerfonds.
‘yourMail’ provides comprehensive e-mail management based on state-of-the-art time management methodology. The complexity of typical information worker processes is lowered by practical and context-related logic at the team and project level. This is achieved by incorporating an intelligent filter, storage, filing and knowledge management system.
“Based on our many years of experience in well-known IT sector companies we know the increasing significance that the subject of effective time and e-mail management has. This is where our product offers a solution that is comprehensive and unique on the market,” says Danny Reimer, CEO of yourTime Solutions GmbH.
The founders, Danny Reimer, Jan Johannsen and Martin Geier, look forward to working with High-Tech Gründerfonds. The capital from the first funding round will be used to develop the ‘yourMail’ solution as a free single-user version for integration in Microsoft Outlook. The ‘Professional’ and ‘Team Edition’ versions will subsequently enhance the portfolio.
