Using an application called METAmessage we mobilised the sales force and revolutionised the way reporting was done from the retailers around NZ. Since then I have presented for RIM and to Vodafone on data and mobility. Last year I partnered with Si in Australia to bring some of the better applications and tools for BlackBerry and Windows Mobile to NZ.
Just so you can get an idea - from my BlackBerry I can reboot any networked server, add users, restart print queues (using Idokorro), access my CRM (using Salesforce.com and Vettro 360), send faxes, spell check, log my billing time and access back end databases (using METAmessage), log calls (using Vettro Fieldmaster), run PowerPoint presentations to a projector (using Impactica Showmate).
We are also in the process of bringing a digital pen to NZ (PaperIQ) which OCR’s your handwriting and sends it as a .PDF or Word doc to a website via your BlackBerry – it’s the coolest bit of technology I have seen for a while and can’t wait to get it on the market over here.
I hope to be giving some demos of these tools and technology in Wellington in the near future and look forward to hearing from any fellow geeks who are interested in touching bases about what I am up to. All the best
