SIMPLY RELIABLE HAS DEVELOPED SIMPLE, EASY-TO-USE, BUSINESS PROCESS SOFTWARE FOR SMALL- TO MEDIUM-SIZED TECHNOLOGY BUSINESSES.

Simply Reliable Coffin Headshot

Business owners in this segment frequently find themselves trying to operate with disparate software applications. As a result, their businesses are operationally inefficient, financially limited, and difficult to grow. Our initial market is the five million smart home integrators, representing a $6 billion annual market opportunity. We already have hundreds of paying companies succeeding through using our business process solutions.

THE PROBLEM WE SOLVE

As small businesses attempt to grow, their lack of repeatable processes and business automation software creates operational chaos, drives up costs, kills profits, and cripples their ability to grow.

THE ORIGIN

Simply Reliable was founded on the principal that a successful business needs repeatable processes best delivered through software. The software must embody best practices to ensure optimal operational and financial results, providing business owners with sustainable profitability, controllable growth and satisfied, referenceable customers.

Founded by experienced technology business owners, Simply Reliable is the only company to create a single, integrated, affordable platform for small businesses that automates workflow from first contact through to final invoice.

OUR PRODUCTS

Simply Reliable Smart Office

Simply Reliable’s smartOFFICE offers a complete and simple end-to-end business process workflow solution for small businesses. It assists the business in managing people, products and money, thereby reducing expenses, increasing revenue, speeding up the sales cycle and improving cash flow. It is both easy to learn and to use. smartOFFICE is designed as a guide, moving integrators from sales to installation, meanwhile helping users to accurately make the next move through every process. smartOFFICE ultimately delivers the truth to the business owner, allowing them to make informed decisions based on fact versus gut feel.

Simply Reliable Design Machine

The patented (US 8,719,758 B1) designMACHINE automates the creation of drawings and documentation. designMACHINE provides a process that allows the integrator to prove that their proposal design is functionally sound. It allows for the creation of floor plan layouts to convey where devices should be installed and automatically creates a schematic drawing and cable schedule to provide visual instruction for connecting devices, in addition to being able to pull a myriad of reports. This functionality can save the average tech company an average of two days of labor per project.

THE CI4C4 PROCESS

Simply Reliable - Process Infographic

Simply Reliable has developed deeper integration of the business workflow process for a large subset of small businesses that sell and install Control4 home automation products. Starting from the point of design, creating a proposal in smartOFFICE for a potential Control4 prospect takes only minutes with the customized quickSPEC and proposal process. Once the proposal is exported to designMACHINE, the user can assign drivers and create a Control4 file ready for implementation. designMACHINE can then automatically produce the necessary documentation, for example, wiring diagrams and cable schedules. Ci4C4 (Control Integration for Control4) eliminates days of work and opens opportunities to double or triple the efficiency of the integrator, and this can translate into dramatic sales increases and reduced labor needs.

TESTIMONIAL

“I really do love the way the Ci4C4 process works with my integration process. The time saved creating a final delivery platform, with scope, proposal, detailed engineered drawings and business documents, has reduced hours spent in front of a PC and has allowed me to be in front of my client selling and implementing more solutions. It’s good stuff and really has helped me save time, money and energy!”

PROVEIT – the World’s First Mobile Arcade

Proveit Founders and Cash Truck

PROVEIT

PROVEIT is the world’s first mobile arcade where players compete for cash in their favorite casual games.

Proveit Founders and Cash Truck

Welcome to the New Vegas!

The company launched in November 2016 as a trivia-focused iOS app and was called “one of the most exciting mobile games ever played” by TechCrunch. PROVEIT has now evolved into a competitive arcade for the mobile generation, with dozens of game styles and competition formats. Whether you like trivia, puzzles or arcade games, PROVEIT has a game for you!

How It All Started

The company was founded when Prem Thomas asked Nathan Lehoux “Why can’t we play Jeopardy for money on our phones like Fantasy Sports?” Nathan liked the idea of monetizing a game of skill like trivia, and the team quickly got to work developing the first version of PROVEIT, with a seed investment from the founder of a successful poker website. The duo quickly realized that offering a pay-to-play game involved a very complex regulatory environment, but after 18 months, they had secured legal, regulatory, app store and advertising approvals.

proveit $25k Winner Group Shot
Proveit Prem Thomas and Nathan Lehoux

PROVEIT is now approved for gameplay in 34 states and counting.

Prior to launching, Prem and Nathan raised $2.0 million from Florida attorney, John Morgan, who made the perfect strategic investor, given his legal background, network and appetite for high-risk verticals. Since then, the team has grown to over 10 members, most of which are mobile developers.

PROVEIT at SXSW

The team ran its first major tournament at South by Southwest in 2018, complete with $30,000 in prizes, a PROVEIT-branded armored truck and a street time that took over Austin.

No Ads Ever

Unlike traditional ad-supported mobile games, PROVEIT generates revenue on every gameplay, resulting in a much stickier and more valuable user base.

proveit - TechCrunch Quote

Proveit Winner

PROVEIT’s thousands of users deposit cash to enter head-to-head or multiplayer challenges against friends and random opponents. Entry into each game ranges from $0.50 to $10.00 and winners take a cash prize, less a fee to PROVEIT. The company donates a portion of its revenue to charities that focus on education, literacy and underprivileged students.

MyArea Network – It Started with a Crab Cake

MyArea Network Group Photo Sept 2018

MyArea Network Group Photo Sept 2018

It started with a crab cake. MyArea Network founder, Scott Conlon was in Baltimore, Maryland, and he wanted to know where the locals go to get the city’s best crab cake. But, he couldn’t find a good, reliable resource online to tell him.

“As a local, I set out in search for the best. I didn’t want a chain. I wanted to go to the top local spot,” recalls Conlon. “I later realized I wasn’t alone. So many people want authentic, local flavor, and they don’t know where to get it.”

Since an easy, accessible digital platform of stories about local businesses written by local residents didn’t exist — Scott built his own. After moving to Tampa, he created the ultimate online source of all things local he wanted in Maryland. He built 813area.com, the first of what would become 150 sites across the country under the MyArea Network brand.

MyArea Network Mobile

Each MyArea Network site, named for their unique area code, does what Conlon envisioned. They create, curate, and publish authentic local content written by locals that’s fresh, relevant, and engaging for today’s digital consumers. But, MyArea Network has quickly grown into so much more than that. It utilizes real-time analytics, virtual reality, and personalization to create impressive experiences via stories and videography, and next year, they’re launching a new mobile app.

MyArea Network has also expanded their vision beyond just helping locals and visitors find great things to do, places to go, and what makes the area special. They’re focused on helping communities as a whole.

“Local businesses are the backbone and core of any great community,” says Conlon. “So we’re making MyArea Network an engagement platform that’s useful to both local residents and local businesses so we can help communities thrive and remain unique.”

MyArea Network now offers marketing services that help local businesses adopt digital technology and grow and succeed in their community faster. The model, which is on pace to do $1 million in sales this year, includes “digital marketing in a box” solutions that allow local businesses to simplify their online marketing and find easier, more cost effective, and more authentic ways to reach local customers.

By combining relevant local content and cutting-edge technology to connect residents, visitors, and businesses, MyArea Network is focused on building stronger, more influential and unique communities nationwide and also, guiding people to find the area’s best crab cake.

Keriton – Breast Milk is Liquid Gold, Especially for NICU Babies

Keriton Booth

ELEVATOR PITCH

Breast milk is liquid gold, especially for NICU babies. The current state of breast milk management at a hospital is extremely manual, time-intensive, error-prone, lacks real-time analytics and does not solve the baseline problem of helping mothers pump more breast milk while being away from their babies. With an innovative Software-as-a-Service approach, the Keriton Kare platform solves every single one of those problems. Keriton Kare is a state-of-the-art breast milk management, lactation analytics and patient engagement platform for the NICUs. Co-innovated with Penn Medicine nurses, for nurses, the platform significantly improves process efficiency, saving critical nurse time and reducing errors. With built-in real-time analytics, lactation consultants can proactively counsel struggling mothers, instead of reacting when it is too late. With automated notifications and text/audio/visual patient engagement solutions, the platform also notably enhances the pumping experience for mothers, resulting in improved pumping adherence and outcomes.

OUR STORY

Keriton was born at the University of Pennsylvania in Spring 2016, where nurses from Penn Medicine shared the multi-faceted problem of breast milk management & tracking at the world’s largest hackathon – PennApps. Keriton’s founder had personally witnessed the scenario 5 years back when his sister had a preterm delivery, and his nephew was admitted to the NICU for 3 weeks. He decided to fix the problem, and his proposed solution at the hackathon won 2nd prize. Post that victory, Keriton was incorporated in 40 days and made its mission to improve the state of breast milk management across NICUs in the US.

Keriton was incubated under DreamIt ventures, a top 10 digital health accelerator in the world, right from its inception. With financial support from DreamIt, Penn Medicine, AmeriHealth, Wharton, and Dorm Room Fund, Keriton incorporated in March 2016. Keriton has since been continuously working with the clinicians at Penn Medicine and have conducted several design thinking and user feedback sessions with them. The Keriton suite was launched in April 2017 and announced as Generally Available (GA) in August 2017.

The Keriton team spent countless hours in the NICU, listening to nurses, observing them go through the workflows, speaking with mothers and eventually running design thinking sessions with the several stakeholders to ensure that an ideal solution is devised for this extremely complicated problem. The feedback thus far has been extremely positive – “This is the best NICU invention ever!” – NICU Nurse; or “Thank you so much for building this, this is perfect!” – NICU Mom. The Keriton Kare platform is showing phenomenal results in improving quality of care, reducing costs and improving patient and clinician satisfaction.

PHILADELPHIA HAS ALWAYS BEEN A HUB FOR INNOVATION. FROM THE “INVENTION” OF THE US REPUBLIC TO STREETLIGHTS, REVOLVING DOORS, AND THE FIRST COMPUTER (ENIAC), THE SPIRIT OF BENJAMIN FRANKLIN CONTINUES TO SPUR THE PROGRESS OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY.

They started their partnership, out of their homes, in 1998 with the creation of their first company, AdminServer. Later moving into office space near the Philadelphia Airport, they grew the company steadily for 10 years, eventually garnering the attention of Oracle  corporation, which acquired AdminServer for $125M in 2008.

During “the Chris’” non-compete period, they turned their attention to Philadelphia eateries starting the nationally acclaimed “Franklin Mortgage and Investment, a speakeasy” and the “Upstairs at the Franklin, a tiki bar” in Rittenhouse Square. Having successfully created a software development platform that produced high-quality code, they then focused on removing friction between software developers and business users to create a seamless development experience.

During their AdminServer days, they identified recurring pain points in software development methods adopted as an industry “standard”. These methods are a frustrating iterative process where corporate IT creates requirements in a silo, developers create an application in a silo, and then the application is critiqued and edited in a silo. This process repeats until requirements are finally met, or funding is exhausted. Gali and Doggett believed a collaborative, integrated process could efficiently replace the iterative process, and produce better results, faster.

Graphite GTC was founded in 2012, again in Philadelphia, to address these pain points. Gali and Doggett set out to create a platform that would actively foster collaboration between business users and IT, developing an enterprise application with uncompromising quality. Not surprisingly, one of the outcomes was a vast reduction in time to market. The Graphite GTC team of engineers and business professionals spent several years designing and crafting Graphite Studio. By 2015 the platform was ready for the market. This innovative platform is a thoughtful and complete graphical development environment designed to give customers a better approach to delivering and developing the best web applications.

By using shapes, Graphite Studio enables users to create complex back-end processes through the use of easy to understand flowcharts. Eliminating the need for multiple complex languages in the development process, Graphite Studio opens the doors for collaboration between IT and business users. Graphite Studio benefits have been proven to provide lower cost development, delivered in a shorter time frame with industry-leading reliability and security.

Now located in Bryn Mawr, PA, just outside of Philadelphia, Graphite GTC continues to foster innovation and continuously improve their product. Graphite GTC currently works with Systems Integrators, Commercial Organizations, and Regulated Industries to provide them with the innovation and benefits of Graphite Studio.
