Thank you for your interest in viRaCube. With this press area we want to provide answers to your questions and pictures you may need.
About 17.5 million households in the DACH region enjoy their garden as a place to rest and celebrate. But according to an IMAS study garden work, especially the irrigation of green areas, is one of the major burdens.
While visiting garden centers you will see that irrigation systems are not state-of-the-art anymore. They do not offer any kind of possibility to integrate them into modern smart home systems. In addition they lack in various fields such as usability, efficiency and sustainability, especially compared to the numerous possibilities of the IoT era. Therefore viRaCube offers their customers a simple and intuitive way of controlling irrigation systems. The combination of soft- and hardware makes it possible to save time during yard work and also enhances the efficiency of our precious drinking water.
Our goal is to provide an optimal and sustainable way of irrigating plants to our customers with the least amount of effort for them. By bringing irrigation systems to the current state-of-the-art we can give our customers time back.
Roland Grösslich, MSc. (Co-Founder)Roland Grösslich is a passionate out-of-the-box thinker. This profession was not always appreciated during his decades of working in financial services.
For creating the basis for his personal change he studied International Project Management and Innovation Management. By doing so he was able to bring his knowledge up-to-date.
During the middle of the 1990s he started his career as a sales representative at an insurance company. His rise to an experienced marketing strategist was accompanied by his honorary management work at one of the world’s biggest NPOs.
Now, more than 20 years later, it is time to break out of this loop. So he is founding and creating a company according to his vision. He is an expert in developing sales campaigns as well as in the optimization of recruiting strategies in distribution. Because he sees it as his biggest challenge to fill the terms of empowerment, innovation force and error culture with life, you can see at first glance that success will not only be measured by the sales results. The indicator of success will in fact be the sustainability of the company.
Ing. Alexander Lampret, MSc. (Co-Founder)Because of his technically oriented parents, computers have been all-time companions since Alexander Lampret’s childhood. Due to his fascination of technologies he decided to take the path of an education in engineering. At first he went through a higher technical school in the field of electronics and telecommunications and later he chose a study in Biomedical Engineering and Medical Informatics and the UAS Technikum Wien. During this time he implemented numerous projects in the sector of wireless communication, microelectronics and embedded systems, always with a lot of accuracy and passion for his developments.
This thread also runs through his professional life. While working as a sub-project manager in a large-scale IT project he took responsibility of leading and controlling a cross-cultural development team during product development. By taking the challenge of leading an international team he was able to gain both great functional and social competences.
Beside his passion for technologies he is also a keen gardener. Because he already built and implemented his own smart home and smart gardening system, he is responsibile for the technical development of the prototypes.
