Happy Christmas from the Screach team

Merry Xmas from Screach on Vimeo.

It’s been a very cool year in the Screach office so we wanted to thank everyone that’s been part of it by creating a super cheesy Christmas e-card for you. Here we all are giving you the Screach sign to Jingle Bells, we even had @DavidWeinfeld Skyped in as you can see.

Here’s wishing you all a very Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!

A Merry Manchester Christmas

Merry Christmas at Manchester Tower

Merry Christmas at Manchester Tower

If you’re out and about in Manchester over the festive period then make sure you enter code 294 into your Screach app.

The Manchester Tower near Piccadilly Station is currently showing off a special Screach Christmas theme. Passers-by can enter 294 into Screach to see their picture on the huge screen accompanied by a Christmas message.

It’s a very cool way for you to say Merry Christmas to the city shoppers and you’ll see your face appear as you walk by!

Don’t forget, if you want to see your picture up there then you need to connect with the experience through Facebook.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

Beta testers wanted for exclusive look at Screach – we need you!

Screach in phoneThese last few months we’ve been making some cool updates to Screach that we hope you will love!

The time has now come to get some awesome beta testers on board to have an explore of the new version that we’ve created.

If you’d like to get an exclusive look at our innovative tech then get signed up on our beta page. We’d love to have you on board and we want to hear what you think of our updated features.

We know how super busy people are, so we’re very grateful to anyone that offers us their time at as beta tester. To show our gratitude we’ll be giving a MacBook Air to the tester that we can see is playing with Screach the most and feeding back to us regularly.

Just lets us know your name, email and the device you use on the Screach beta page and we’ll be in touch with the full details soon.

Bringing Inspiration to your Workplace

Lately, our very talented team of developers have been spending time working on their own Screach experiences using our open platform to see what little gems they can come up with.

It’s been a great way for them to invigorate their creative souls! One experience they’ve come up with that the whole team has absolutely loved is the Inspire Experience. Inspire is an inspiration board for you to collate and share the things you see throughout your day that inspire you.

Getting our Inspiration

Here’s what we do:

1. Each morning we load the Screach Inspire experience on one of our laptops

2. The whole team is given a unique code that they input into their Screach app on either their iPhone or Android device

3. Whenever we see something cool, quirky or fun that inspires us, we open Screach and take a quick pic and it’s automatically sent to the inspiration board on our laptops for us all to see, no matter where we are.

Inspire Experience

Here's our Inspire board

The Inspire Experience within Screach

Sometimes we connect the laptop to our large screen TV and the whole team can see the images as they appear. It’s a really cool way for us to stay connected and generate ideas together throughout the day, especially as we have teams in New York and Romania. It’s even a good way to share something interesting with the team that we might have seen when we popped out on our lunch break.

Want to stay connect and better inspire your team?

As we’ve been having a lot of fun with Inspire in our office we thought there might be a lot of companies and teams out there that might also like to use this tool. It works especially well in creative and design environments.

If you’re always looking for new ways to generate inspiration within your team and your personal work then drop Sarah a line and she’ll send you a special code and instructions on how to load your Screach experience.

We’d love your feedback

We’d also love to hear what you think about the experience and how you’ve found it to use, if your team liked it and what you think could make it better.
