Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

We’d like to introduce you to our new app for the new year.

For those of you familiar with the range of web-apps from the house of Tenmiles, the question circling within your mind right now is probably “But wait, isn’t Helpdesk Pilot an existing product of theirs?”. Rightly so, it is.

A year ago, we began planning the next stage of feature additions and enhancements to our flagship product, a help desk management software that was assisting businesses world wide in managing their support services more efficiently. Excitement levels were high as we discussed all the must-have features the new upgrade should ideally have.

We went back to the basics, wiped our whiteboard clean and began designing the product from the ground up, keeping in mind the fundamental pillars on which it had initially been built.

Helpdesk Pilot has now been re-engineered entirely on the Python-Django platform (moving away from PHP, on which Helpdesk Pilot has been historically built) and passionately designed in line with the Tenmiles’ ethos:

“to develop web based software products aimed at adding value to the manner in which businesses and individuals make use of the web”

A slew of new and radically revamped features make their way into V5, the latest release of Helpdesk Pilot, and the refreshed platform architecture gives us the ability to build in new capabilities much quicker. Do have a look at helpdeskpilot.com to see more of what’s on offer.

We have a more aggressive take on going global this year. On that note, we’re exhibiting at CeBIT 2011, where we’ll be launching Helpdesk Pilot V5 to a world audience.

If you happen to be in Hannover, Germany between March 1-5, it would be a pleasure to have you drop by our booth.

Leave us a comment and we’ll get in touch. We hear temperatures are in the sub-zero range, so be sure to bring a jacket or two!



A new app for the new year

 by Vikram  on   03 Feb 2011

2011 sure has gotten off to a flying start! It’s hard to believe we’re already a month into the new year.

Then again, adding the final touches to our upcoming app release has kept us a tad busy.

That’s right folks. Tenmiles is gearing up to finally take the wraps off our most intensive web-app development project till date. We went back to the basics and pooled in every element of creativity and technical expertise in giving life to this product. From jotting down ideas on our whiteboard, to reviewing UI designs and now being able to see the product in action, we’re at a stage where the anxiety and excitement levels couldn’t possibly get any higher.

When product development got underway last year, the Tenmiles team swore to maintain utmost secrecy up until it was ready to be released. Although we tried to stick to the code as much as we could, a certain somebody couldn’t resist the urge to let out a hint now and then.

That’s alright though. It’s understandable to have an uncontrollable urge to shout out to the world, when you have something great to tell. Or rather, a great thing or two to tell.

With that, the countdown begins. Stay tuned for an exciting announcement from Tenmiles.



Tenmiles turns ten

 by rethas  on   20 Sep 2010

What began as a single man, no-office-premises company in Madras (now Chennai), Tenmiles has now completed ten years in operation and has grown from one product to now having a modest, yet proud Vanity Shelf. We have attracted people, helped people solve their problems with our software and are ambitious about making the company the biggest software product company in the country. Read on to know about the insights of the company, from someone who’s seen things from close quarters.

At the helm of Tenmiles, is Shalin Jain, the Founder and CEO who decided he wanted to be one at the age of 18. While he was good at designing websites and making flash presentations back then, his constant dream to be involved with a software product company and engage in making good software, was hard to forget. Thus began the company. The first product was Screenswift, which simply converted flash screensavers into screensaver installers. You could get that Spiderman flash screen into your desktop screensaver in a jiffy. The tool was available in Free and Enterprise editions and we found takers in the likes of IBM, Microsoft and Disney for the Enterprise edition. That was it. We had to be doing something right!

The Year of Ten

 by Vikram  on   25 Mar 2010

2010 marks the tenth year since Tenmiles’ inception (sounds like a tongue twister doesn’t it?) and it’s gotten off to a pretty good start.

The latest entrant to the Tenmiles Vanity Shelfdoattend, is beginning to capture the hearts and interests of Event Managers across the world.

DoAttend, an online event registration service that allows users to create, publish & promote an event on a personalized event page is now powering events ranging from social tweetups and weekend BBQs to corporate conferences on software programming and mobile application development. Diverse events with a common link; a simple to use, aesthetic and feature rich web based product that does the job.

In fact, doattend now enjoys the privilege of being the fastest growing product at Tenmiles.

Moving onto the other major tenant in the Vanity Shelf, we have Helpdesk Pilot, our web based help desk management/customer support solution which continues to aid businesses globally. Shalin Jain was in UK recently to meet with our valued customers in the region and it is gratifying to know how we’ve been able to contribute in increasing their overall efficiency levels. More region specific visits are in the pipeline but armed with feedback, both positive and constructive, we now have brighter plans for Helpdesk Pilot and will be revealing them shortly.
