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!

Spam Check is Live on AppExchange


I am pleased to announce that Spam Check is now live on the AppExchange.

Spam Check lets your Salesforce system evaluate your data to see if it’s Spam. It contains built-in support for incoming Web-to-Lead and Web-to-Case data and also has global Apex methods that allow developers to incorporate Spam checks in their applications (e.g. a custom Salesforce Site).  This application delivers a solution for a popular idea from the community.

Spam Check uses Akismet, the leading spam evaluation service used on tens of thousands of blogs and websites everyday. Akismet gets its intelligence from the vast community that uses it everyday.  Spam Check allows you to contribute to it and make it more intelligent for the whole community and for your Salesforce system specifically.

Install it from the AppExchange to start a free, no obligation 30-day trial.  Once installed, you will get an email pointing you to the Spam Check Setup Guide.

For more information, please visit the Spam Check page on our website or its AppExchange listing.

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!
