Synchronizing Contacts with iNotes

Posted by:

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:

“How ...

So maybe Domino isn’t dead yet…

Posted by:

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 ...

Microsoft 365 vs LotusLive – Part 1.

Posted by:

With the launch of Rivit we decided to rethink the way we do business. We had a number of ideas about how the company had to be run:

  1. Stay small. Try to do the best job you can with the right number of people. A large number of employees doesn’t make a better company.

  3. Avoid politics. There ...

The Domino Reality Check

Posted by:

Rivit recently launched a new product and service. We called it the Domino Reality check. We really struggled with the message.

I’ve been in the Lotus world since 1993. That’s a long time. We based a company around the strength and our personal beliefs in Lotus Notes. But in current times we see it struggling in the market.

What the heck is a Rivit?

Posted by:

After 14 years of running metaLogic, we decided that it would be better to split off the product division and the associated talent into a separate company.   However we didn’t just stop there we looked at all that was good and bad in metalogic.  The good we made better and the bad we eliminated.   Our key philosphy is to move quickly with market momentum.  That means that we will move more quickly with customer and market needs.
