Usually, alarms are meant to let you know when people are trying to get into your abode--unless you have kids. In the latter case, we need all the help we can get to track their whereabouts, especially if they have a penchant for bolting out the door and into the street.
The "RNID Contact Mat" is designed to provide just that. When the sensor-equipped doormat detects the pitter-patter of little feet, it fires off a wireless signal to a pager or a mobile receiver letting your know that the perimeter has been breached, not unlike those "Invisible Fences&… Read more
What's the best way to use the Web to organize your business? Approver and Big Contact, both here at Under the Radar, had some ideas for small- and medium-size businesses.
Approver wants to help businesses disentangle themselves from e-mail as a method of sharing documents. Approver.com lets users share, review and publish documents through a single interface, eliminating the (dreaded) "reply all" phenomenon--where everybody who sees one document sends their own responses, resulting in a deluge of "me too" e-mails. With Approver, documents can be edited directly in a browser, or uploaded from the … Read more
37signals launched Highrise this morning. It's a customer relationship management (CRM) tool aimed at small groups and medium-size businesses. Highrise is meant to fill the gap between Outlook's contact manager and complicated CRM apps that require an IT department to keep running smoothly. It's also priced below SalesForce.com's Team Edition, with more of an emphasis on contact communication and history, rather than sales and forecasting. It's a Webware solution for people who don't want to install CRM software or manage a huge database, and who need a tool that can be accessed on the go.
Highrise launches with six different plans, five of which are paid services with the benefit of shared group storage, increased contact and collaboration limits, and relation-based information pages called "cases." Each tier of service can be upgraded or downgraded at any time, and there's no contract.
In Highrise, each case file can contain information about multiple companies; contacts; and any important information like notes, shared files, and e-mails. By grouping this information in one place, you can create a detailed history or context for a group or contact. Highrise has some built-in tools for organization as well. You can schedule phone calls, reminders, tasks, or basic to-do lists, and assign or include other Highrise collaborators. It's not nearly as deep a system as you get with 37signals' group collaboration tool Basecamp, but if you see something you want a colleague to follow up on, you can do it without firing up your e-mail client.
For integration with your e-mail, Highrise recommends that you set up your e-mail app to automatically forward everything to a special Highrise address. Highrise will parse your messages, and copy over any attachments along with the original text to the contact's profile page on Highrise. If you haven't already created the contact in Highrise, the app will create it for you. … Read more
Yesterday 37signals founder Jason Fried posted about the team's upcoming contact management app called Highrise. The goal of the app is to help you manage contact information in a better way than relying on Post-its or your current software-based customer relationship management (CRM) tool. Think of it like a Rolodex but with collaboration and more space to write things down. Many people can have access to the same records at once, and from the announcement, 37signals thinks they can do better than your current CRM.
In many ways Highrise is a solution for a problem with Web communication technology: … Read more
