Published by zeguru on May 24, 2016, 12:37 p.m. filed under Product Updates

Definitions First,

"The internet of things (IoT) is the network of physical objects—devices, vehicles, buildings and other items—embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity that enables these objects to collect and exchange data" - Wikipedia.

Due to popular demand our Fleet Tracking Service - WapiWapi? is going online as a free service ! This is an IoT service that uses your smartphone as the primary sensor.
Arduino or Raspberry Pi integration is optional.

fleet tracking service was designed to use smartphones inorder to allow voluntary and  anonymous public participation in transport safety and to track moving assets. This is called #crowdsourcing and the technique has been proven worldwide for its power to generate valuable and actionable information.

Google is building self-driving cars, we are promoting safer, efficient and accountable transportation system, what about you ?

WapiWapi has several use cases...
  • Taking a Taxi (or boda) at night ? Worry not, just open the app, fill the taxi details and take the ride. Leaves a trace... just in case.    
  • Fleet Tracking. For transport companies - driver or any passenger on board runs the app and the control room (supervisor) can can follow the vehicles movement and speed, live from desktop !
  • Transport safety. Ever seen those PSV written 'Driven carefully ? ...' Do not call, run the app, fill the vehicle details and let their control room watch in real time. if they really care.
  • School trips: Your kid going to a school trip out of town? Let the driver or supervisor run the app and share the fleet number (reg no). Follow live
  • Use it the way you want
  • Warning: you will never get lost again
Dont be excited, remember to press the Arrival button after reaching at your destination otherwise the world will follow you to the bathroom !

Do not take our word for it. See for yourself and give it a try.

Simplest Web App Ever :: SmartBiz

Published by zeguru on March 28, 2016, 12:51 p.m. filed under Product Updates

SmartBiz sounds like a webapp but i consider it as one varsatile utility.

Think Swiss Army Knife for For SmartPhones

SmartBiz is super simple, super clean. It can be anything you want it to be;
  •   it comes as an open-ended transaction management tool for small businesses
  •   it can be a revenue tracker
  •   some use it as a a personal assistant
  •   petty cash manager
  •   a poor-man's payroll manager
  •   or even a diary !

At software elegance we use it as an activity/issue logger for field support staff !

If SmartBiz was hardware, it could fit in ur pocket, bend and also stretch as you wish.

The main philosophy is to "keep it simple but not simpler" !
