SweetScape is a family run software business founded in 2002 in Prince Edward Island, Canada by father and son team: Lowell and Graeme Sweet. SweetScape has a key focus on software innovation as the two founders are highly qualified in the area of mathematics and technology.

Their signature software “010 Editor” is a continually evolving data editing software platform that allows users to collaborate and edit raw Hex code. The duo created the company over a decade ago “to build great editing, programming, and Ham radio software”.

With over 40 years’ experience in Ham Radio and working as a Professor of Mathematics for over 25 years, Lowell Sweet has the credentials to allow him to successfully create and innovate to the highest standard.

Additionally, the company is dedicated to customer satisfaction and goes the extra mile to ensure that their customers get the most out of their software. They even go so far as to offer one of the longest money back guarantees in the industry.

Easy to Use Raw Data Processing Software

SweetScape was created as a convenient solution to edit and process raw data. In 2002 there was an opening in the market for software that could offer a collaborative hex code tool. Prior to founding SweetScape Graeme Sweet worked in IT, writing professional software for many years.

SweetScape was born out of a need to streamline the data editing process. Although created originally to satisfy his own requirements, the 010 Editor was an instant hit and quickly gained popularity worldwide. Their customers include business from around the globe such as industry leaders and Fortune 500 companies. SweetScape now has customers in over 70 countries worldwide.

 

One of the Longest Money Back Guarantees in the Industry

SweetScape stands behind their software 100% and for that reason, they offer a very generous 60-day money back guarantee. Should a customer not be fully satisfied with 010 Editor, SweetScape will work to improve their product or offer a prompt full refund. SweetScape works diligently to create a high-quality product with well designed, well-structured code. They have been known to restructure entire sections of code until their software works seamlessly.

Customer Service: Centred around Old-Fashioned Values

SweetScape operates their entire company from a customer-driven approach. Their software has been improved and developed over the years in response to their customer feedback. This is a continual process, whereby they invite their customers to get in touch with any improvements that they might like to add to the tool.

SweetScape: Continual Innovation

True to their word, SweetScape works intensely to enhance their already feature-rich software. On October 10th, 2018 SweetScape released the new and improved 010 Editor – Version 9.0. In the most recent update, they have added Syntax Highlighters that can be used by selecting the syntax section above each editor.

You can download the latest version of 010 Editor easily from SweetScape.com and read about the extensive upgrades. In the latest version, they have worked to create feature-rich, sharable syntax highlighting. There has also been a lot of work done on file interfaces, character sets, external functions in DLLs, templates and scripts as well as fixing a wide variety of bugs that had been discovered.

How can 010 Editor be Used?

010 Editor can be used as a hex or text editor to tweak and edit files in an easy to use, user-friendly interface. Although the software is very technical, SweetScape work to ensure that the user interface is simple and easy to use. By simplifying the look and feel of the software, users can quickly jump in and edit code without having to view large amounts of unnecessary data.

010 Editor makes it straightforward to collaborate with binary templates. This is done in many ways, including displaying the file’s data structure hierarchy. Thus allowing enhanced visibility and flexibility to jump in and edit code that could otherwise seem confusing.

Binary files can be from any format such as audio files, videos, compiled programs or images. However, when viewed as raw source, the data appears as large blocks of code. Therefore, 010 Editor makes it easy to analyze and edit large volumes of binary templates. The versatile software allows the upload and collaboration of massive 100GB files. Responding to the market’s needs is at the heart of what SweetScape does, especially when it comes to the ever-growing popularity of worldwide collaboration.
