Lightbulb Rogers Mindit Assist :: Beta testers wanted

Please Login to Remove!

We are about to release a new build of Mindit Assist ( and are looking for a few BB users in the Golden Horseshoe area who might want to beta test a few of our new features. Some may already know/ or be using Mindit as we are currently offered by Rogers on an 'exclusive' within Canada.

Here's what we are looking to test this time around-

* Spead sheet data handling
* Image handling (requires a Pearl + BIS/BES)
* Text file handling

In the case of spread sheets we will testing the Mindit virtual assistant's ability to extract data from a locally (PC) stored spread sheet, and then include/ merge the data in a dynamically created PDF/ email message.

In the case of images/ text files we want to test the virtual assistant's ability to process files sent from the BB and use them as content in a dynamically created PDFs. As part of this we would like to test how it will function with common BB text editors - Eoffice, etc.

Testing will be a done over a 4 week period, and we will provide training at our location (Burlington) for anyone who wants/ needs it. Mindit is a PC based app that will need to be installed on your destop/ notebook. It 'connects' to your BB via standard POP3/ SMTP or MAPI client (MS Outlook Express), so no special IT dept 'magic' is required.

The goal with Mindit is to build a software product that is low cost, fully email driven, and delivers much the same functionality as a real assistant - i.e: you email it the details of a job to be done, and it does all work for you, putting an end to local file handling/ editing for a large group of users. Replies to customer requests get handled faster and more professionally than if attempted from the BB itself (or a notebook). - We think we can generate about a 150% improvement in productivity after this release...

We are very close to that goal and are at a point now where I (and number of users) have ditched thier notebooks and use BB + Mindit to handle most of the customer driven day-to-day business documents (quote, letters, contracts, etc).

If anyone is interested in testing please email me at ian @ minditassist dot com and I will set you up with a free copy.
