More Prototyping Fun!

This June is a really exciting month for us, because we have some great updates for you! We are starting off with the announcement of our new pricing model: Starting today, our brand new per-project pricing will replace the previous – Basic, Classic, Expert – system. With the new plans, users will only pay for the number of prototyping projects they need and will be able to add users to their respective plans without additional cost. In addition, all our users will be able to benefit from our full feature set – real-time collaboration, commenting, specification exports, mobile prototypes, templates and much more.  Check out our new plans here.

You already have a Pidoco plan that you like? Don’t worry. Existing plans are not affected by this change, so you can keep using your current plan. When you are ready to upgrade, you can simply do so in your Pidoco account. (Please note that it will not be possible to reactivate plans under the old pricing model once they have expired or been terminated.)

You are excited about this update, but don’t have a plan yet? Then head over to pidoco.com and get your free 31-day trial today.

For more information check out the details of our new per-project pricing or contact us via email at support@pidoco.com. We are happy to help you!

Happy Prototyping!

Soccer World Cup Special

It’s time to get soccer-crazy again as the World Cup in Brazil is about to commence!  You are not in the right mood yet, because learning Samba moves is quite difficult, you do not know how to play on the Combinho or you simply cannot kick it like Ronaldo, Messi or Neymar? Well, here is something to cheer you up.

We at Pidoco have already placed our bets… So now it is up to you! Who will win the Soccer World Cup 2014? Guess the World Cup champion and win a one-year Pidoco Expert Mobile license! All you have to do is follow these 3 simple steps:

1. Like our profile on Facebook or Google+ or follow us on Twitter.
2. Pick the winning country.
3. Send us the name of the country you think will win the World Cup by sharing this post, commenting on it or by sending a tweet including @pidoco before 12 June 2014. (Please note: Posts have to be shared publicly so that we will see them.)

 

World Cup-2

We will give away one Expert Mobile license to a participant who has correctly predicted the World Cup winner after the finale on 13 July 2014! (If we have received several correct predictions, we will randomly select a winner.)

Good luck and Boa sorte!

Pidoco at the first tools Expo + Conference 2014

For the seventh time in May, the German capital Berlin became Europe’s biggest digital hotspot hosting one of the largest festivals of the entire IT scene – the Berlin Web Week. Cracking the attendance record, 18.000 visitors participated in this year’s numerous workshops, hackathons, and bar camps and visited the many different events such as the NEXT Berlin or re:publica.

As this exciting festival constantly evolves, the tools Expo + Conference has joined the line-up as a new showroom event. The first tools ever took place on 7 and 8 May 2014 in Berlin’s venerable ExpoCenter City right next to the impressive Funkturm. We already reported on this new event in April, which we were happy to support in bringing together a wide range of different companies and industries united under the slogan “build your digital business”. Since the first tools offered a new concept focusing on businesses seeking web applications to leverage the power of digital business processes, we were quite curious what to expect.

After loading the car and making it through Berlin’s rush hour traffic on Tuesday afternoon, we set up a comfy Pidoco booth featuring a set of lounge chairs for our visitors and prepared everything for the upcoming two days. Following some early meetings at our booth, Wednesday kicked off with our workshop titled “Rapid Prototyping & Usability Testing”. During this 30 minute power testing workshop, participants had the change to learn how they could easily create their own interactive mobile prototypes and use them for quick and inexpensive usability tests. Aside from a host of useful tips and hints on how to design a suitable test scenario and running a usability test, participants were able to test drive Pidoco on the laptops provided on site.

During both days, we had the opportunity to connect with a very engaged audience and talk to both visitors and potential partners. Those quality conversations and discussions were really inspiring and offered some great feedback, especially in regard to our new features soon to arrive, which will make prototyping even more powerful. At the same time, tools 2014 was a great opportunity for us to socialize, to network with new and existing customers as well as to meet up with old friends and partners.

We enjoyed tools 2014 and would like to thank all of you, who visited us during these two days in the Expo Center City in Berlin. A big thank you also goes out to the organizers for creating this new event and to SIBB e.V., the ICT & Digital Business Association of Berlin-Brandenburg, who were responsible for the booth we were part of!
