Company Profile, Products & Technologies, Target Market:

Ginger Software is the leading contextual spell and grammar checker on the market today. Based on a full sentence context, Ginger can automatically correct severe spelling and grammatical mistakes at a high success rate. It enables users to produce error-free texts quickly and easily. The product operates as an online service and supports Microsoft text editors such as Word or Outlook. Web applications will be supported during 2009. Ginger Software's mission is to facilitate error-free writing, particularly for those who use English as a second language, or for those with learning difficulties like dyslexia. Ginger Software's revolutionary program has the potential to eliminate up to 95 percent of writing errors common to people with dyslexia. Ginger's novel patent pending technology is based on extensive research. The team developed a unique text-correction algorithm that automatically analyzes the context of errors and selects the most appropriate correction.

Brief description of proposed R&D project:

The breakthrough technology produced from this joint venture will create a combined ESL (English as a Second Language) learning Platform. The integrated product will be specifically designed for those who learn English, some 1B people around the world. Ginger Software's patent pending automatic text correction technology, an intelligent and interactive writing tool, will be integrated into the partner's English teaching software, yielding a powerful reinforced learning application.

Ginger's ability to identify frequent mistakes and recommend appropriate instruction topics, combined with the potential partner's expertise in instruction methods, will create a total solution to improve writing capabilities including spelling, misused words, grammar, vocabulary, and more. This integrated and inclusive technology will be marketable to the potential partner's core and established market in the "K-12" school segment and the home education consumer market.

Desired Profile of R&D Partner and its role in the proposed project:

Desired partner is an ESL software producer with some market share in this segment. We are searching a creative/innovative counterpart to complete our novel technology and to create the most powerful English-learning platform ever. The partner will share the job of integrating our products and developing new teaching methods that leverage on Ginger's ability to produce customized training for each and every student according to their level of knowledge. We expect the partner to play a major role in marketing the joint product to its existing and potential customers.
