Od początku roku 2015 trwają intensywne prace polegające na integracji systemu Ellen z platformą CADAS. –  Implementacja systemu Ellen ze środowiskiem CADAS to ogromne wyzwanie dla naszych firm, jednak jestem głęboko przekonany, że przyniesie korzyści wszystkim naszym klientom, którzy uzyskają dostęp do wydajnego, mobilnego środowiska internetowego, pozwalającego na łatwy pomiar emocji w obszarze badań rynku i opinii. – mówi Bartosz Rychlicki, CEO Quantum Lab Co.

6. First ever Xpress Engine presentation at the Purple Day 2014 Conference

7. First business implementation with SW Research

Weeks, days and hours spent on coding brought us our first, small proof of concept. Since that time, we are coding harder, faster and better. Many thanks to guys from SW Research. This would be not possible without them.

That is it guys! It was a great year working with you and besides best moments we had lots and lots smaller successes and of course some fails. But it does not matter, because what really matters is that we are still together as friends and company, we have fun each day and we know that the bright future is ahead of us.

New How Are You App website has been lunched!

We have launched a new website for How Are You App. Apart from more clean and organized layout we have added the CESD-R  test, which is a screening test for depression and depressive disorder. If you suspect that you can have a depression, you can take a test answering 20 questions, to find out how deep is your problem with depression. Just go to http://gethowareyou.com

We hope that this new website feature will meet your expectations and helps you increase self – awareness about mental health and mood disorders. Remember that you can measure your depressive symptoms whenever you need, but for diagnostic purposes you should take a test once a week and write the results down.

Stay tuned, never give up and fight against depression! We are here to help you!

*All information about your test results is anonymous, and it is not stored anywhere.

How Are You App – Therapy in your pocket

How Are You App, is devoted to people who suffer from depression and mood disorders. We believe that a mood tracking has a tremendous potential to help people in depression understand what are the main mood triggers in their life, and how they change their mental health.

The app also promotes mental health by scientifically proven exercises which are sent to the user each time he or she makes a mood test. Unique features of How Are You App, like broad analysis, buddy encouragement, and gratitude diary along with exercises and hints from positive psychology, make it a comprehensive and highly efficient tool for self-improvement and better mental health
