Quintell Dashboards; business analytics on the go from your BlackBerry

BB and Spreadsheet

Viewing spreadsheets on the BlackBerry can be a pain if the worksheet is full of data and field comments.  I know many who print off the spreadsheet and carry it with them so they can have a better view of the data.  The challenge with that is that comments are not viewable and data can't be manipulated while on the go.

Enter Quintell with their Dashboard that provides mobile analytics to decision makers.  With the dashboard you can:

  • Spot reg flags easily
  • Drill down to discover trends 
  • Compare Performance
  • See the big picture
  • Display comments for additional insight
  • Contact the right people without leaving the dashboard
  • Share screenshots
  • Access all your dashboards in one place - online or offline
  • Launch Quintell Dashboards from your email inbox

The company offers a free 15-day trial and the cost to purchase is only $29.99 for a permanent license with no recurring payments. Check out a quick video after the break or hit the link below to download.

AG Canada launches Canadian farm & market news mobile app

Farm Business 

Farmers are busy people. They spend the majority of their time in their tractor, half-ton or combine, and not in front of a computer. Yet, much of their critical business information is available on-line: weather, market prices and agricultural news. And when the weather or the market prices change, farmers want to know immediately.

The AgReader application, developed for Farm Business Communications, is a leading edge mobile application that combines secure enterprise publishing and RSS integration with Sherpa Digital's push mobile application that works on the Blackberry. The application features customizable news feeds, weather and market information all from a easy-to-use Blackberry application that works wherever coverage is available.

To make the application even more useful, farmers can choose to receive Environment Canada weather alerts, set commodity price alerts and other critical notifications. Non-critical news and information remains on the device until the farmer has time to review them.

Today's farmers are becoming increasingly reliant and familiar with mobile technology. By bringing information that adds real value to the farmer's daily business practices directly to their Blackberry smartphone, Sherpa Digital and Farm Business Communications have become the technology partner of the Canadian farmer. Full press release after the break.

The app, available free at, is now available for BlackBerry smartphones.
