Self-learning Outlook Plugin Wins Innovation Award

At Cebit 2016, the IT Innovation Award in the category “Office Management” was awarded toMindReader for Outlook. The STAR Group plugin supports Outlook users with text suggestions from previous emails and thus eliminates the need for time-consuming sentence formulation.

MindReader for Outlook is especially suitable for SMEs: The users can get started immediately and use text proposals in the very first email after installation. Trainings are as unnecessary as collecting and maintaining standard formulations or text modules because MindReader automatically and continuously learns from sent emails. This also convinced the jury consisting of prestigious professors, IT industry experts, researchers, and journalists.

“In the professional environment of technical writers, our ‘authoring memory’ tools are already well established,” says Josef Zibung, CEO of STAR Group. “With MindReader for Outlook, we now bring professional technology as a streamlined and simple solution to the office environment. This innovation benefits everyone who writes emails – so, practically everyone.”

MindReader for Outlook is available as a standalone or corporate license. The standalone license can be purchased via the STAR Group online shop.
