Felix Schwarz (fxPAINT, fxSCAN, Ultraconv, VHI Studio) is back with his all-new-company IOSPIRIT. Learn more about the company, the future of its AMIGA products and the all-new shop at http://www.iospirit.de/.
At the end of the year 2000, fxSCAN 3.0, the first program for optical character recognition (OCR)
for the AMIGA for a long time, has been officially presented. The program AMIGA-users longed for for
such a long time was ordered that often within the first few weeks of availability that the infrastructure
of Innovative couldnīt keep pace any more.
Felix Schwarz, author of such powerful and popular graphics applications like fxSCAN, fxPAINT, Ultraconv
and VHI Studio, made the decision to create an own company from Innovative, the AMIGA-division (led by Felix
Schwarz) of the software-company of his father, renew the whole internal infrastructure and organisation,
expand the business areas and to further extend and improve the customer service.
On the 2nd of January 2002 IOSPIRIT was founded by Felix Schwarz in Herzogenaurach. The enterprise
has two main fields of business activity:
IOSPIRIT takes over the whole product range of Innovative. Our customers in future will profit from the
extended abilities and the excellent infrastructure of IOSPIRIT. fxSCAN, fxPAINT and VHI Studio will be
intensively developed further and maintained in the future. More information on this will be made public
shortly in seperate press releases.
- Software development
IOSPIRIT develops powerful graphics applications for the most different tasks and target
audiences. In development special focus is put on the support of the latest technologies
and easy usability while still offering maximum power, flexibility and expandibility. IOSPIRIT
also develops new, innovative technologies whereof the user directly profits.
- Software distribution
Thanks to a unique infrastructure IOSPIRIT has the possibility to distribute software online
Online distribution is done via a self-developed online-application for "Electronic Software
Delivery" (ESD). In a first step the customer puts the desired articles into the basket and then
orders them. After an incoming payment via creditcard or pre-payment the download of the product
is unlocked for the customer - mostly at the same day the order was placed. As this type of order
is automatically handled by the central IOSPIRIT server, cost savings can be passed on directly to
the customer in the form of price reductions.
Of course "hard stuff" (so called "package versions" like e.g. CD-ROMs) can also be ordered, which
then, thanks to a well thought through and work step optimized infrastructure, can be delivered
very quickly. The customer is kept up-to-date on the status of the order via EMail and can get an
overview over his orders (including their status) anytime via IOSPIRITīs website.

|Best of luck to them - I am glad that interest has been high enough for them to actually do this.|
The website looks good and is informative as well.

|I'm a big fan of fxPaint, so this is welcome news. I hope further development means updated Amiga versions and not just ports to other platforms (though I wouldn't blame Felix if it did).|

I would. The Amiga needs quality programs, and it needs programs which are unique and will give it an edge over other platforms. Windows doesn't need yet another paint program, nor does the Mac.
