AFMG Newsletter - Issue 43, January 2020


Dear customers, colleagues, and friends,
 
Welcome to a new edition of the AFMG® Newsletter. These quarterly issues inform you about software updates, trainings, and interesting downloads related to our products.

AFMG announces record year for 2019, invests heavily in EASE 5

Within the last year AFMG successfully brought great development results to the market:
In autumn 2019 we released a major upgrade for the AURA module to version 4. This enabled EASE users to perform advanced acoustical investigations even more effectively.
 
AURA 4 has already been installed on hundreds of machines in more than 30 countries. The feedback we have received is overwhelming.
Shortly afterwards the EASE 5 Early Adopter Program was started, giving a first group of EASE 4 users access to the current version of EASE 5 under development. Their feedback is very valuable to us in order to work on suggested new features. This allows us to better assure the future release of EASE 5 will enable our customers to effectively work on their acoustic and sound system design projects.

If you are an EASE 4 user, do not miss the chance to actively participate in the EASE 5 Early Adopter Program and development. To get an interesting overview of the new features and the status of EASE 5, please stop by our booth at Prolight+Sound in Frankfurt, Germany or InfoComm in Las Vegas, USA.
All in all, 2019 was a record-breaking year for AFMG. Due to a growth of more than 10% the company again achieved the highest revenue in its history. Accordingly, several substantial investments as well as hiring additional staff members have been put on the agenda for 2020.
 
We wish our customers and partners a successful year 2020 and look forward to our cooperation together.

AFMG adds new staff, and says goodbye to a senior colleague in his retirement

AFMG announces the following changes to its workforce: Waldemar Richert retired in July 2019, Nikolai Moesus and Monyze Visoto have joined AFMG recently.
Waldemar Richert
Waldemar Richert
Waldemar has worked with AFMG since its early days and has been involved with the development and support of many of our flagship products. From EASERA and SysTune to SoundFlow and EASE, Waldemar’s technical contributions are countless. His clinical eye and professional doggedness were always highly appreciated by his colleagues at AFMG, and will be missed after his retirement. We would like to give Waldemar Richert a special thank you on behalf of our company for almost 20 years of dedicated and hard work, and truly wish him all the best.
Nikolai Moesus
Nikolai Moesus

Having received his Master in Computer Science degree with the best grade possible, Nikolai is a great fit for AFMG’s first class development team. He has solid experience in the C++ and C# programming languages, and is now well integrated into the team - “I love programming as a craft that generates useful tools. Contributing to fundamental and core features of EASE 5 is particularly interesting since it is a prestigious and complex project with high requirements for software architecture and code quality”.
Monyze Visoto
Monyze Visoto
Monyze has graduated in Electrical Engineering with an emphasis in Telecommunications. After having worked as a transmission systems engineer for several years, Monyze joined AFMG adding considerable resources to our quality control team - “Setting up automated testing routines to monitor and manage our software quality fits me very well. I like to investigate each function deeply, trying to find errors, and always putting myself in the user's place to make his experience better”.

We are very glad to welcome Nikolai Moesus and Monyze Visoto to our headquarters in Berlin.

AFMG is continuously growing and is always looking for new talent to expand our development, support, marketing and sales teams in Berlin. If you are interested in our company’s activities and would like to collaborate with us, we invite you to visit the employment section of our associated company SDA for our current job openings.
