Litco Systems Inc., a Canadian company and leading provider of Document Process Automation, Business Intelligence (BI) and Agile Development solutions and City of Surrey Fire Service, today announced the launch of their Fire Department Operations and Staffing Dashboard.

The Challenges

This cooperative venture was driven by City of Surrey Fire Services need for instant visibility into operations and performance data and fast report generation. As a result, City of Surrey Fire Service was looking for an efficient analysis tool and turned to Litco Systems to translate their requirements into a dashboard that focused on their key performance indicators. Recognizing there were many other fire departments facing similar challenges, a collaborative development effort was undertaken to create a dashboard of interest to a broader audience.

Litco provided the application expertise to take our key performance indicators and create an application that is not only capable of analyzing our data, but was built on a platform that displays the data in a dashboard, providing a single solution for the end users. Karen Fry, Deputy Chief, Surrey Fire Service.

The Solution

City of Surrey Fire Service provided the industry expertise while Litco Systems provided the development expertise to create the Operations and Staffing dashboard. This dashboard will enable fire departments to analyze call performance, response times, inspections and property data, personnel absences and staffing levels; while allowing Administration staff to quickly and effectively report on the key performance indicators within an organization in a real-time system. Easy to create and simple to modify, the template saves time and provides insight into an organizations data. The template will enable fire departments to meet their accountability requirements and use evidence based decision making strategies based on information collected. Data can be deployed up and down the chain of command to Operations staff who can then measure their teams performance. The graphical presentations make it easier for all levels of users to understand. Fire Departments will be able to analyze data quickly and dynamically, drilling down to focus in on specifics when required. The underlying product, QlikView, allows the dashboard to be integrated with the systems and databases in use at other fire departments. Additional dashboards can be developed to analyze other business areas as required.

QlikView looks at all your various databases simultaneously and provides you with a customized view of all your data in one application. It allows me to quickly monitor the key performance metrics on a daily basis. This is a powerful and efficient tool for any manager! Larry Thomas, Deputy Chief, Surrey Fire Service

WordPress Plugin Displays Google Analytics Stats in Dashboard

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 15, 2009

A new plugin for WordPress displays tracking data from Google Analytics, WordPress and MailChimp, all integrated together into a single WordPress dashboard. The plugin is provided free of charge by MailChimp and can be downloaded at the wordpress.org plugin directory . A MailChimp account is not required to access the Google Analytics information.

The Analytics360 Plugin provides a comprehensive view of a blog’s performances, allowing publishers to quickly identify which posts are enjoying the most inbound traffic whether from web site referrals or by email. The traffic-over-time chart shows when a post was published or an email campaign was sent in relation to the numbers of site visits, giving a clear view on cause and effect.

Google Analytics is rich with information. This plugin accesses the most relevant information for a blogger and displays it in an actionable way. For example the plugin displays all blog referral sources and provides a drill down path showing the most popular posts. The plugin also includes a world map. Hovering over a country shows the number of blog visitors from that country. Analytics360 provides real-time access to both Google Analytics and MailChimp allowing for instant date range changes.

“Bringing WordPress and Google Analytics together is like mixing peanut butter with chocolate. A natural fit and prefect to the tastes of power bloggers,” says Ben Chestnut, Co-Founder of MailChimp. “We use both applications heavily and wanted to share our tools with the blogging community at large.”

MailChimp supports email for many blogs with a free RSS-to-Email option that updates subscribers whenever a new post is published. MailChimp also developed a simple to install WordPress plugin to manage email list signups.

The Analytics360 plugin was developed for MailChimp by Crowd Favorite using the Google visualization toolset for rendering the dashboard charts. The plugin will work in the self-hosted versions of WordPress including the multi-user version.

In order to take advantage of this plugin, subscribers need to be running Google Analytics on their WordPress site already. Then all they have to do is download and install the Analytics360 plugin and enter their MailChimp and Google Analytics login info. MailChimp takes care of the rest.

Answer Efficiently – Create an archive of stock responses and “save as drafts” to plan your work and standardize common replies for customer support

Foursquare and MySpace Added to HootSuite Social Dashboard – Just in Time for SXSW

Vancouver, Canada (PRWEB) March 9, 2010

HootSuite announces addition of Foursquare and MySpace to the social media dashboard. The release comes just in time for SXSW – the massive interactive media, film and music conference in Austin, Texas.

HootSuite began as a professional Twitter client and evolved into a powerful social media dashboard which allows users to manage and update multiple profiles on Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, WordPress.com, Ping.fm and more. With the addition of these two unique networks, HootSuite users can easily spread the word about their favorite hot-spots plus bands and filmmakers can update fans – all from a familiar web interface.

Mayor of the Nest

Foursquare combines way-finding, social marketing and gaming in an addictive mobile app which encourages everyday socialites to “check in” at cafes, bars, conferences, and other locations to alert their friends, share tips and even become “mayor” of a location. Additionally, using HootSuite, travelers can easily follow recommendation from locals when visiting other cities. This location-based tool also creates a unique marketing opportunity for businesses who seek valuable word-of-mouth advertising and endorsements from regular customers.

Bands, Meet Fans

MySpace is the first stop for fans and artists to discover, connect and communicate. Consistently in the top dozen websites, MySpace is home to an abundance of creatives – from bands to filmmakers. With HootSuite, the hundreds of bands playing at SXSW can easily outreach to fans about gig locations, surprise shows and new song releases. Likewise filmmakers can quickly rally attention across networks for screenings and release dates. Fans can also spread the word about noteworthy bands or movies to build buzz – or to just make their friends jealous – all from the HootSuite web dashboard.

Tools for Marketers

Today’s release includes a powerful addition of default settings to custom URL parameters which were added in HootSuite’s “Barn Owl” release (Feb. 15, 2010). This feature helps marketing and customer service teams track campaign results by adding unique referral identifiers. The release also includes a variety of bug fixes and performance enhancements.

Bar-B-Q and Apps in Austin

Following the Android and iPhone App launch on March 2, HootSuite coordinated this release with the 23rd annual SXSW conference – a massive gathering of web tech, media and artists in Austin, TX which frequently acts as a launch pad and test bed for new media products and services. The HootSuite team will be on-the-ground keeping an eye out for users updating Foursquare and MySpace with HootSuite and sharing swag specifically designed for the culture of the conference.

Connect with HootSuite on the road by following @HootUp and/or the #hootsxsw hashtag for meet-ups, demos, prizes and photo ops with the Owl mascot.

HootSuite Adds Options for URL Shortening to Social Media Dashboard – Removes Social Bar from Ow.ly

(PRWEB) April 26, 2010

HootSuite announces a choice of URL shorteners in the social media dashboard — Ow.ly is now a fully redirected URL without a frame, and the newly-added Ht.ly will present the link with the social bar allowing easy Re-Tweets and sharing. Both Ow.ly and Ht.ly options include full statistics, storage for photos and files, malware protection, and 1-click messaging with the Hootlet tool.

In the character-limited web of micro-updates, instant blog posts, and status messages, URL shorteners have grown from a simple utility to a critical tool for a variety of reasons ranging from vanity URLs to click-through statistics.

Popular social media dashboard tool HootSuite allows users to update Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social networks from one web interface, and lets users shorten links using the built-in Ow.ly URL shrinker. Using Ow.ly to manage URLs provides businesses and organizations with important statistical analysis to see which Twitter messages generate clicks-throughs.

The links were/are presented with an opt-out “social bar” which provided options to Retweet, spread to more networks, add a rating, search Twitter, view popular links, and more. With changing desires in the marketplace, HootSuite now offers users a choice of URL shorteners — Ow.ly will change to simply a fully redirected URL without a frame, and the newly-added Ht.ly, which will continue to present the link with the social bar.

Fully-Loaded or Lightweight

Both Ow.ly and Ht.ly options include full statistics, including accurate click-throughs (with bot filtering), custom date ranges, regional breakdowns, and exportable reports. Further, both options include handy storage for photos and files, which you can easily attach to Twitter messages.

Ht.ly with the social bar is best suited for marketers seeking to amplify their messages by encouraging users to spread links across social networks and share with friends. Ow.ly is best suited for users who just need the basics — a short link and statistics.

Fast, Reliable & Safe

Ow.ly is among the top 5 most used URL shorteners on the web and rated as a top performer. Technology industry news source, TechCrunch, in a study with Pingdom.com, rated Ow.ly as top choice of URL shorteners: “When both the reliability and speed rankings are combined, ow.ly and bit.ly tie for first place overall …” Research bureau Watchmouse keeps real-time status charts for popular URL shorteners and verifies Ow.ly’s performance as well as worldwide usage trends.





Further, Ow.ly and Ht.ly also prevent dissemination of shortened URLs that disguise nasty, suspicious links by checking URLs with the Google Malware/Phishing list and present web surfers with a warning message when a page is suspected to contain harmful scripts or scams.

Custom Short URLs

Up next, HootSuite will be adding the Ow.ly Pro service to provide custom URL shorteners for businesses who purchase “vanity” URLs. These URLs can reflect company branding through creative domain names like many major web brands.

For example, Twitter recently announced the addition of a custom URL shortener twt.tl, Google also uses a custom goo.gl (from Greenland) which also creates QR codes, WordPress uses wp.me, and Facebook uses fb.me (both .me URLS are from Montenegro).

The URL shortening trend has created an interesting business opportunity for domain name providers who market the two-character codes from far-flung countries – such as: .im (Isle of Mann), .tv Tuvalu, .fm Federated States of Micronesia, and .ly Libya – to companies seeking memorable and short branded domain names.
