Currently we actively operate two AJAX SaaS applications of our own:
Track Heat is a webservices based system to aid ISO compliance using barcode technology for inventory, document and chemistry tracking by heat lot in a steel roll processing and remanufacturing environment. It is particularly suitable to the manufacture of slit coils, tubing, sheets, bars, beams and stampings. It would potentially be useful in similar industries such as wire and paper manufacturing that make coils and turn them into lot bundles. For details see www.trackheat.com.
Call Tracker is designed to aid compliance with the Canadian DNCL (do not call list) regulations introduced in September of 2008. It supports a company DNCL and provides contact management for permission based marketing. By combining the NDNCL, company DNCL and contact data you can easily identify whether or not any number is safe to call, and why. A log of all activity aids in showing due diligence and simplifies investigation for compliance. For details see www.calltracker.ca.
Search Engine Optimisation is the business of making your web site appear on the first page of results returned from your preferred queries. We do not depend on paid advertising, so it is both art and science. Look for our Call Tracker (DNCL software Canada) and Track Heat (steel heat barcode) with your prefered search tool and see for yourself how well we do. Ask us whether we can do the same for you.
We used to use 000webhost.com but switched to hostgator.com. Why? Webhost decided to put one of our sites on review. That would be OK if it was for a couple of hours and for the reason as stated. In fact, it was for about 3 days while we complained and were fobbed off by irrelevant excuses from people who clearly did not bother to pay attention or investigate. When they finally apologised and pointed us to their paid service as a way to avoid "reviews" we had already moved every site that really mattered to us. They never did explain why they had to take a site down to review it. We concluded this was a scam to pressure people into their paid service. We wanted no association with a business that behaved in this manner. Today, all our front ends and informational content is on Hostgator. The bulk of our functional service remains on our own server equipment on our own premises. We still use webhost for some SEO supporting activity of a minor nature that will have little impact if it is offline for a while.
The Linux operating system and Open Source software help you achieve the best possible long term total cost of ownership. We can supply hardware and software to get you running with Linux and help you plan and implement sensible networking and internet strategies. Come to us for skills and experience that will help you choose and use the computer systems and software best suited to your technology needs.
We also have a Wireless Route Sales system for anyone wishing to use a handheld client terminal to get immediate transaction records from an up to the minute database. This is a true wireless WAN application, not an update-it-when-in-range WLAN solution. The demo database is disconnected while we work on an improved AJAX version, but the screen shots and general information work.
