I’m excited to share I’ll be in Ithaca, NY tomorrow to be a part of the CUxD symposium around the future of interaction at Cornell University. They’ll be 5 of us speaking all with varied backgrounds which should make for a great event!
Big thank you to Kelton Minor for putting this together and having me out.
Looking forward to attending Nate Silver of the New York Times talk on Powerful Predictions, as well as another speaking event around the aurora borealis mapping project that Kelton’s been working on with NOAA/NASA.
Should be a great couple days!
Old Boulder friend and all around good dude David Perry is working on cool project, BLKRBN. I pulled together a brand preview image and splash page for him. Looking forward to revealing more on this as well as his first collection.
Thank you for all the great support and feedback we’ve recently received! We’re digging in to create the best iPad receptionist out there. Stay tuned for updates and progress as we gear up for an early 2013 release!

It seems that tablets are becoming increasingly effective at performing the tasks of customer facing roles, which is why companies such as The Robot Pub Group have taken to using the devices to allow patrons to help themselves. Now the TextUs.Biz™ iPad Receptionist platform is hoping to do the same for administration, offering a way for office visitors to check themselves in.
After installing the tablet at the front of a company’s premises, guests will be able to use it to select the reason for their visit, enter their details, choose an employee they wish to speak to and let them know they are there. The system is connected to staff mobile phones, meaning that they are instantly alerted via text message when someone has arrived to see them. Responses can be sent directly back to the iPad to let the visitor know what they should do. Companies can customize the look of the system to match their business’s branding and add extra voice prompts to further personalize the service. The system is priced in three brackets – USD 99 per month for companies with one to 49 employees, USD 149 per month for those with 50-99 employees and USD 249 per month for those with more than 100 staff members.
TextUs.Biz™ iPad Receptionist could help small business who can’t necessarily afford to hire a receptionist to manage their office effectively, but the system could also cut costs at public services such as hospitals. Could tablets be used similarly elsewhere?
