Looking for something?

So today we launched Pointbird.com, let's celebrate!

Introduction

The last few weeks and months I’ve been busy setting up the foundation for a new set of products we’re developing. We call them Pointbird. The story behind the name is a tale for another time.

Simple but powerful plugins, products and solutions for SharePoint and other services – that’s what we’re currently building. We’ve also simplified licensing so that all our customers can easily understand our model and implement our solutions without any trouble! Easy as 1-2-3.

Products

We’ve got a set of products lined up in our respositories that are in testing and conceptual phases. However we’ve already launched a few products that we’ve experienced as the most popular requirements from our customers in the projects I’ve been involved in the last few years. Nobody had found a solution for these common problems, so I drew some sketches and then we started creating them. Some are small, others more complex – but they all offer value to our clients and that’s the most important thing for me.

Pointbird Short Url

So the Short Url product, as the name implies, is a product that can shorten url’s of items in SharePoint lists and libraries.

It’s pretty slick and for the user it’s just a matter of clicking one link in the ECB menu:

We’ve actually already implemented this solution at a few clients, and today as soon as we launched we had a few copies sold during the first few hours. Wohoo!

Pointbird Zip Saver

A common request from a lot of my clients I’ve been working with is to be able to select specific files from a library and then just download them all, including folders. Requirements were simple and very clear, so that’s exactly what we implemented – a “Zip Saver” solution that can download multiple files at once, including folders, and presents them nicely in a zip-file. The zip-file contains the exact same structure as your library that you chose to download. Neat! Very neat!

The Pointbird Zip Saver is a rather popular demand and we’ve implemented this in a few organizations already as well.

Pointbird Notify

A very simlpe yet smooth solution for displaying ad-hoc messages to your users in your various sites and site collections. A popular request is to instead of using a portal start page news list or announcement list, to be able to push out messages to your users in a more persistent and focused way. With the Pointbird Notify solution you can simply create a new list item in a special list containing announcements, and it will automatically display it for your users with the settings you specify. Awesome.

Summary

That’s it. No more marketing – we’re done for now. Hope you enjoy it :-)
