Since becoming Rivit we’ve been focused more and more on the transition of our clients away from Domino or the notes client. We’ve been working with Binary Tree (BTW. great people and great software – www.binarytree.com) on migrating email and working with our friends at DLI to move Domino Applications to a browser based domino framework using DOCOVA (www.docova.com).
However since November we’ve been pleasantly surprised by the Domino World. Especially on our product side. We saw a huge uptake on all of our products.
Enforcer Domino backend clients increased licensing and are clients are fully entrenched in the products. New clients came on board and confirmed that Enforcer Domino is still the easiest, fasted archive solution for Domino users.
Enforcer Relational backend brought on new clients as we worked on improving scalability and performance making Enforcer the lowest cost alternative to keeping your domino email archives outside of Domino.
Pursuit brought on new clients and we saw the return of old clients. Seems that some clients decided not to migrate after all. Pursuit is still the fast Domino search, discovery, destroy application for Domino.
And, last but not the least, Fetch Retriever. Our original product that delivered the best Mail Recall solution for domino increased sales through new clients, additional licensing and the return of old clients. Our old clients, who had taken the route of using the native Domino Recall, returned to us stating that the our feature set and the level of success that Fetch Retriever offered to them still made it the best way to go. Reasons that they expressed were our ability to recall mail not saved by the sender, recall mail by an administrator, recall mail from blackberry’s, recall mail from large groups, and just the fact that it worked when you wanted it to work.
Check out our new pricing and you’ll see why we had a great year so far.
Connect 2013 – General Observations
Mon, Feb 4th 2013 7:09a Rob Salerno I’ve attend every Lotusphere since 1995. I’ve been a vendor for 15 of those years. The last few years we’ve questioned the return on our investment as we saw Domino losing Market share With this years change in direction we, like most of the community, were very skeptical about the show. Last minute planning and some aggressive pushing from IBM got us to attend as attendee’s. We didn’t go as a vendor.
For the first time in a long time I was able to a [read] Keywords: domino
Just got my Iphone 5
Fri, Oct 26th 2012 8:09a Rob Salerno So I just got my Iphone 5. Yup, I’m a Apple junky. Ipad’s, Ipod touches, Macbook Pro, Nano’s, and Iphone are all over my office and house. I sidestepped the jump to the 4S. Didn’t think that Siri or a faster process was significant enough to make the jump. But when the 5 was announced I jumped on the list with my service provider. 1 month later I get a knock on the door. That’s right, a 1 month waiting list.
I like Apple products, but I don’t c [read] Keywords: apple

Synchronizing Contacts with iNotes
Mon, Aug 27th 2012 12:09p Rob Salerno We have a number of clients who have been reducing their notes client footprint the last couple of years. iNotes has become a great alternative for the notes client. Highly functional, providing as near to the notes client experience as you can get.
We also have some clients who use it as an alternative for accessing mail. It’s the “Travelling Persons” email client. Easy to access from a hotel or internet cafe. However, they always come back with the same question:

Speed up Dropbox
Thu, Jul 12th 2012 11:10p Rob Salerno Just learned something new today. Dropbox automatically limits your upload speeds. Fact is you can only upload as fast as your connection will allow it. But why let Dropbox automatically set that. Go to Dropbox in the menubar, click on Preferences – Network – Bandwidth and change your Upload rate to “Don’t limit”. [read] Keywords: network
Dlink – Router/Access point Wireless Restart problem
Mon, Apr 30th 2012 7:10a rob Dlink dir-655 - restart problem - Configuration screen
I have a Dlink DIR-655 router. On paper the router sounds great. However, it has a nasty access point problem. The access point seems to continually go offline. The only way you can get it to work when this happens, is to either reboot it or physically turn it off and on.
Like most devices, Dlink is no longer providing Firmware updates for this. Weird because it still a big seller at the stores. The last Firmware version was 2.0 [read] Keywords: wifi
