A start-up tech company is aiming to inspire a complete rethink on consumers’ computer purchasing habits with the launch of their new downloadable software.
Durham-based Fumarii Technologies is improving private and workplace productivity with their software which aims to automatically speed up and save memory on people’s private and work-based computer systems.
The product has already attracted over 5,000 downloads globally in pre-launch beta mode, and the team are keen to continue this rapid growth and encourage people to think again about the need to purchase new PCs or laptops so frequently.
With research showing that the average British employee now spends 40 minutes a day watching a loading screen, the Fumarii is keen to be the innovators behind change, creating streamlined and improved computer usage.
Canadian born Liam Gill is founder and CEO at Fumarii and studied at Durham University. He says: “We see the future of computing to exist just like a utility, such as gas or electricity; it’s something that everyone needs in varying amounts, on demand. You shouldn’t have to buy a computer that will become quickly outdated as often as has become the norm. Just like we don’t generate our own power or buy barrels of oil at a time, then we really need to rethink this ‘trap’ we’ve fallen into about how often we purchase new computers.
“Our software tackles this by automatically updating devices, eradicating loading time and removing the need to re-purchase. We see Fumarii’s downloadable software as an ideal solution to freelancers, start-ups, small businesses and individual users to have the need for faster, more efficient computers.”
The software can effectively transform what might previously have been considered to be ageing devices to become as powerful as bespoke gaming computers. This is done by boosting processing power, memory and storage and granting access to a far greater broadband experience. The software automatically extracts ‘cloud-ready’ files from subscribers’ computers and stores them remotely, providing a low-cost solution for heavy data users such as designers and coders.
With 83% of all enterprise computing expected to be cloud-based by 2020, Fumarii is thought to be the first company bringing an affordable, subscription-based model to consumers. Entry level subscriptions for Fumarii’s software starts from just $10 a month.
