Introducing Geopointe

This was also posted to the new Arrowpointe Product blog. We are moving all product specific information to that new blog and keeping this blog focused on developer related information. Please subscribe (rss, email)

We are pleased to announce the release of our newest application, Geopointe. Geopointe integrates with Google Maps and MapQuest and is the premier geo/mapping solution providing numerous ways for end-users, administrators and developers to take advantage of geo data and maps.

Highlights of Geopointe include (but is not limited to):

  • Map any Salesforce object
  • Perform proximity searching (show me what’s nearby me)
  • Create custom data sets (queries), both personal and public ones
  • Export your results to CSV (Excel) or KML (Google Earth)
  • Obtain multi-point driving directions
  • The Visualizer helps create dashboard-like summaries of your data
  • Automated, Scheduled Geocoding processes your data at 1000+ records per minute
  • Get cleansed address data
  • Contains an “API” with global Apex methods, Visualforce Components and the ability to extend the application using custom buttons.
  • All existing Arrowpointe Maps customers get a free license transfer to Geopointe for the same user count and expiration date as their current license with a goal to get users off of Arrowpointe Maps and onto Geopointe.

Arrowpointe’s Aloha Apps

Salesforce just announced an update to AppExchange where they designate apps as “Aloha Apps”.  Aloha Apps are a new “all-you-can-app” category of apps that don’t count against customer org limits (apps/tabs/objects), no matter which edition you’re using.

A number of Arrowpointe applications are in the Aloha category.

  • Arrowpointe Maps – map your Salesforce data!
  • Auto vCard – Import a record (e.g. lead or contact) into your local address book with 1 click.
  • Spam Check – Stop Spam from entering your Salesforce system and wasting your users’ time.

If you install any of the above apps, they will not count towards your app/object/tab limits:

AppExchange Best of ’09 Awards

Salesforce is currently running their Best of ’09 AppExchange awards.  The awards are solely based upon 2009 4-star and 5-star reviews.  If you use an Arrowpointe application, I encourage you to leave a review.  In addition to helping with awards, it’s the best way to give me your feedback and to help fellow Salesforce users know what’s quality and what is not.

Links to the Arrowpointe AppExchange listings are below:

Thank you for your feedback!

Free AppExchange Apps (presentation from SD User Group)

I had the privilege of being asked to present to the San Diego Salesforce User Group this past Friday.  The topic for the day was Appexchange Applications, Tools, and Components that you can download for Free!

I presented on a number of Arrowpointe Products as well as some 3rd party ones that, over the years, I have come to really appreciate.  I included apps that are both free and ones I consider well worth the money.  The list is not exhaustive and there are lots of good candidates.  For 3rd party apps, I tried to pick ones that were useful to all Salesforce Customers and not ones that were focused on specific business processes or technologies to be integrated with.  That pares down the list quite a bit.

If you are interested, you can download my slides.  For each app I presented on, there are links on the slides to learn more about them.

Thank you San Diego User Group for being a great group to present to and I hope to make it down that way again soon!
