Seehausen a. Staffelsee, Bavaria, Germany, 2008/01/08 - New online music service uses XSEARCH Suggest to search music titles and prices from Internet stores across the world - Weitkamper.com.
Weitkämper Technology today announced that simfy.de, a Germany-based online price-comparison web site for music downloads, is using XSEARCH Suggest so that users can search their music in an intuitive and easy way.
Simfy.de introduced its new Internet service that enables consumers to locate and share more than 500,000 artists and 6,000,000 titles on the Internet. Even though a number of online-music shops and subsequent the number of legal downloads are increasing, no search and price comparison service has ever existed up until this point. The goal of simfy.de is to create clarity and transparency in the legal music downloads business.
"The intuitive and easy search is an integral aspect of our service," says Steffen Wicker, co-founder of simfy.de. "XSEARCH Suggest is the only solution to satisfy the high standards of our customers."
Steffen Wicker and Christoph Lange founded Simfy.de while studying management economics at the University of Mannheim. Originally developed as a project in support of their theoretical education, it soon became clear that a service like simfy.de provide real value for the users of legal music downloads. Simfy is assisted by experienced Business Angels like Holger C. Johnson, Björn Bähre and BVP Berlin Venture Partners. Further advise is provided by the University of Mannheim, in particular by Prof. Dr. Armin Heinzl (chair in Wirtschaftsinformatik I) and Prof. Dr. Michael Woywode (chair in Entrepreneurship).
