New App Launch and Video Interview with Intuit Partner building in Flex

Posted by Alex Chriss on December 13, 2008

Alex Barnett just posted a new interview with Joe Dwyer from Dwyer Technology.  Joe recently launched his app, Trigger Connect on the Intuit Partner Platform and talks about building his app, with no flex experience, in about 6 weeks.  Trigger Connect allows companies using Intuit QuickBooks to easily synch their customer data to the web and then keep their entire team on the same page, with twitter-like CRM tracking.  

You can see a video of the TriggerConnect in action or try the Beta of the app directly within the Intuit Workplace.

How Cloud Computing makes my real life business better – the future

Posted by Alex Chriss on November 10, 2008

Mike Riversdale just posted “Wondering Why You Should Care About “Web 2.0/”Cloud Computing”? on Ben Kepes, Diversity Limited. I call this article out because it paints a beautiful vision on how apps work together in the future cloud world – well, this is exactly what we’re trying to do with IPP. 

So read the article, then close your eyes, see the vision, and then imagine your QuickBooks back office data that you rely on to run your company – and now imagine your front office needs to grow your business  – and now imagine all that data, and all your employees and partners and customers working on stuff together, and now smile, because if it works, then as the article says you don’t care how it’s happening, “in a nutshell: it just works.”  And that’s how apps should work for consumers and businesses.
