TECH Workflow Management Application
TECH is a workflow management software for small- to medium-sized companies. The platform's objective is to simplify task assignment and increase the efficiency of project management. Once implemented, TECH acts as a work team's central hub for task management. Through constantly opened lines of communications, employees can view job details and assignment information anywhere, anytime. Assigned workers can also register comments regarding the work and note its completion for both the employer and customer to see. TECH pulls together scattered team efforts in order to increase visibility, team productivity and accountability of workers by showing what's being worked on, who's working on what and how much time it took.
The product has been tested as effective, with several technicians already using the software. Clients are able to use the software by licensing it for $100/month. Alternatively, they may open the software in test mode for a smaller monthly fee to begin creating and executing tasks. Interest has already been garnered from three cable companies regarding licensing the application.
Established in 2010, Geegle's primary activity is related to the development and commercialization of software and media applications. Operating under the domain name www.geegle.tv, Geegle Media has developed a video on demand platform that currently services viewers located in the United States, Canada, Russia and Bulgaria. Geegle's mission is to enhance the quality of products being delivered worldwide by leveraging the knowledge and expertise of advanced specialists in the information technology industry. In doing so, Geegle Media aims to capitalize on the rapidly expanding market for on demand content solutions.
Market Opportunity & Expansion Goals
On Demand Content Industry
In recent years, consumers have become increasingly accepting of switching out the rigid schedules and high costs of traditional television and entertainment providers for the personalized, convenient offerings of on-demand video alternatives. According to industry reports from TiVo, 8.2 percent of former pay TV subscribers ditched their service in 2014, a rise of 1.3 percent over the results from the previous year. On a similar note, a whopping 45.2 percent of those surveyed indicated that they reduced their cable or satellite TV service during the same time.
While "cord cutting" is a rising trend, Americans are continuing to spend when it comes to audio and visual equipment and services. In a report by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, spending on the audio and visual equipment category led overall entertainment expenditures by a healthy margin. In 2013, average spending on household entertainment totaled $2,482. Of that total, roughly $1,000 was attributed to audio and visual content and devices.
Despite consistent spending, viewers are less and less in the habit of watching TV with programming dictated by broadcasters. Instead, with rising number of consumers owning several video screening devices, both in home and on the go, they are demanding more personalized entertainment solutions affording the opportunity to choose specific content on a flexible schedule.
This summary is supported by the performance of some of the largest and most well-known subscription-based video streaming services – including Netflix, Hulu and Amazon. According to a report by Statista, the global number of Netflix subscribers grew from 29.4 million in the third quarter of 2012 to roughly 57.4 million in the first quarter of 2015, an increase of nearly 100 percent. Along with the rise in subscribers, the company reported revenues of $1.48 billion for the quarter.
For Netflix, much of this growth can be attributed to the company's commitment to the production and distribution of high quality original content. As Geegle Media looks to begin releasing its own original content later this year, the company will target this expansive market, providing an opportunity for considerable growth.
According to a report Research and Markets, increased availability of user-friendly interfaces is expected to drive sustained growth in the global video on demand market. From 2014 to 2019, the industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 23.16 percent. With a suite of platforms targeting underserved niches within the larger video on demand market, Agora Holdings, through Geegle Media, is strategically positioned to capitalize on this growth.
Sustainable growth of this caliber is driven by the leadership of an experienced management team with the knowledge to capitalize on the company's rising momentum.
