In a digital age like today’s, the world is overloaded with information and advertisement, and among the plethora of products and services, consumers seek innovation and ingenuity. Authenticity is the new revolution in marketing, and original content is at the heart of it. Helping individuals, educational institutions, and businesses create authentic content and foster creativity among their workforce is Ouriginal— an award-winning software solution that combines writing style with text matching, enabling clients to evaluate any text’s authenticity.

Ouriginal was established last year due to the partnership between two of the industry’s leading companies, Urkund and PlagScan. The company brings over three decades of combined experience and knowledge and delivers cutting-edge technology solutions that help businesses increase the potential of their creative teams. Ouriginal seamlessly integrates with learning management systems (LMS) or could be used as an independent product. Users can upload documents in any format, and the software analyses the text and checks for possible text similarities, either from the client’s database or wider internet sources. When the content is identified as plagiarised, the system records the degree of plagiarism, checks paraphrasing and usage of synonyms, and finds evidence of ghost-writing and contract cheating. The algorithm is language-agnostic and can detect similarities across several globally used languages. An analysis report is generated at the end of each evaluation that provides insights into the textual matches in an easy-to-comprehend and reliable format.

Ouriginal’s software solutions empower businesses and corporations to improve efficiency and deliver quality content by offering a fully automated system that assesses the authenticity of any text. The solution can be easily personalised and integrated with popular LMS such as Moodle, Blackboard, Brightspace, Google Classroom, Microsoft, and more. Ouriginal is not only highly accurate and user-friendly, but the software is also customer-centric and provides smart evaluations in just a few clicks.

Ouriginal uses multiple servers at independent sites to store data and run the software, ensuring zero downtime. The company ensures data privacy and security, and its clients always have complete control over their data. The softwares are compliant with GDPR and CCPA and have in-built multi-layer security measures. Ouriginal’s technical specialist’s team greatly complements the innovative software solutions, who are experts in the field and 24*7 available to help their customers. The University of Canberra, one of Australia’s biggest research universities, was looking for tools to detect plagiarism in the essays submitted by students. For over three years now, the University has employed Ouriginal to identify textual similarities and spot plagiarised texts.

During the early stages of implementation, Ouriginal was able to detect impermissible amounts of plagiarism in the essays and highlighted the major problem that was taking place in the training. Eventually, as the students became aware of Ouriginal, the quality of essays improved, and the amount of plagiarism declined. The price, user-friendliness, and customer satisfaction are the most significant advantages of Ouriginal, and the company has helped many of its clients generate authentic and creative content. The company recently partnered with SIMON, a well-known provider of learning and school management software in Australia, to empower schools across the country to seamlessly integrate plagiarism prevention solutions into their existing systems. This partnership aims to increase the fairness and quality of educational organisations and ensure every student develops their full potential. With such innovative features and partnerships, it is evident that Ouriginal will soon revolutionise the landscape of the global education and business ecosystem.
