    I’m not sure if I’ll participate in your contest, but either way, what’s the actual value proposition behind the software? You claim that it will save time and that it will consolidate spreadsheets, but how has it distinguished itself from Google Sheets? There was nothing in the PowerPoint presentation or in your more concise description of the software in the Contest Brief that would lead me to believe that this is any better than Google Sheets. Also, what’s the story behind the name? With a name like ExOpen, what’s implied is that the software is an open-source version of Excel. However, if the package is indeed open-source, why would there be a need to contact company reps? This sounds more like a proprietary software package. Is this contest simply a matter of selling an idea that’s simply not that great?

    I understand that there’s a need to get things done by a certain time or whatever, but I also understand that there should be a logical flow to every approach; in business and in life as a whole. If you’re unable to answer the above concerns, would it be possible for you to reach out to the company reps, so that they can shed more insight? It makes no sense to develop marketing material just because, when there are fairly basic concerns that haven’t been addressed dealing with the “why” and “so what”.

    By the way, the example video really only serves a purpose for Swedish speakers. Without a grasp of Swedish, no one would be able to make sense of what’s being said.
