The ReachOut H2020 Project will be showcased at OW2online’20, June 17

Several hundreds of OW2 members and partners will learn more about the ReachOut Beta Center
to set up and run successful beta-testing campaigns, during the OW2 annual conference. 

Paris, June 2, 2020 - The ReachOut Project team is glad to present a free operational web platform to run successful beta-testing campaigns at OW2online’20. The ReachOut project, coordinated by Fraunhofer Fokus,  involves the OW2 open source community and UShareSoft as independent software vendor. Alexandre Lefebvre, UShareSoft project manager will drive several hundreds of participants along a guided tour of the ReachOut Beta Center, next June 17 at 4:30PM.

After 18 months of development, the ReachOut Beta Center welcomes new European software to develop their own ecosystem:
ReachOut is available for free, not only to the EU-funded research projects but also to all European SMEs and to all open source software builders,” explains Alexandre Lefebvre, UShareSoft project manager.

For thousands of OW2 members and partners, the ReachOut Beta Center can contribute creating market value sooner than expected, as soon as a ready to test beta software is released. Moreover, business users as well as developers can discover new open source software registered on the ReachOut platform. They can give them a try and provide their own feedback to the designers.

Aligned with the OW2online’20 focus on “the full-stack open source”, ReachOut can improve the quality of new applications, SaaS or mobile services through early user feedback, while providing software properly packaged, along with installation guides, tutorials, and support services. 

In order to comply with travel limitations and social distancing, the ReachOut platform can be used at home. The ReachOut team provides guidance and monthly hands-on webinars since February 2020. These online meetings help software developers producing easy to access, deploy, and try beta software, or to customize a questionnaire in order to collect useful feedback from beta testers, for instance.
