Mumbai-based Ideacts Innovations,which makes software products targeting cyber cafes has re-launched CLINCK Desktop as iCafe Manager, a LAN and web-based system for cyber cafes.

With the new branding, iCafe Manager has been launched in five different languages -English, Indonesian, Portuguese, Spanish and Arabic – which will cater to the needs of cyber café owners and users across the world with specific focus on emerging markets. Earlier the product was available only to the Indian market as CLINCK Desktop.

According to Rudrajeet Desai, co-founder and CEO, Ideacts Innovations, "These five languages were selected after in-depth market research. These languages together account for a large percentage of users in the global shared Internet access space"

Bhushan Aher, head technology, Ideacts Innovations added, "The multi-lingual product is not just a mere text translation, it is a complete culture sensitive translation. For example, for the Arabic version, we have used the Hijri Calendar apart from transforming the UI components from right to left.  All manuals, supporting documents and website have also been translated."

Ideacts was formed in March 2007 by Rudrajeet Desai, Maninder Gill and Saurabh Khullar.

It raised an undisclosed series-B venture capital funding from Sequoia Capital India and Silicon Valley Bank. Ideacts also raised $5 million from Sequoia Capital in 2007.
