Manager, Global Developer Ecosystem Luca Filigheddu is leaving BlackBerry!!!

Luca Filigheddu, Manager, Global Developer Ecosystem is leaving BlackBerry! Luca joined BlackBerry in July 2012 as Developer Evangelist and became Head of Dev Evangelism EMEA in August 2013. After that, in March 2014, there were some important changes and the role of Dev Evangelist was extinct and Luca started managing the Developer Communities globally, where he worked with developers on the development efforts to focus on the objectives of the company worldwide.

Filos, as he is known in community, is leaving to changes of his position inside the company. As previously reported to us, his position is required to operate from the company’s HQ in Canada and since he can’t move to Canada, he can’t continue in that position. Some alternatives was offered but nothing that suits him, hence he decided to move on.

This is some sad news to the BlackBerry Community. We wish all the luck to our friend Filos in the upcoming challenges. Thanks for the dedication to our beloved Brand Filos, you will be missed.

IMG_20150529_163247

Produktyf CRM is a native BlackBerry 10 CRM (Customer Relationship Management) application which helps business users to increase productivity by capturing and organizing information about people (such as contacts, clients, prospects, suppliers, etc.), companies, projects and just about anything

Produktyf CRM has long been marked beta and was already available in BlackBerry World. Today’s update to v1.4 (v1.4.0.100) actually marks a beta exit into an official product.

What’s new in v1.4:

  • File Attachments – one of the most requested features allows you to attach any file to any CRM item, such as Note, Contact, Company, etc. Files can be linked to (left on the file system and just referenced in the app) or physically stored in your application database.
  • Device Contact Integration – based on your overwhelming feedback we have completely redesigned the way we integrate with device contacts. You are now able to see all device contacts and you can link CRM items directly to device contacts without need to manually create and synchronize. Please see Help screen for more information on this feature.
  • Integration with Produktyf Project – you can link a Project in Produktyf CRM to a Project in Produktyf Project app and seamlessly see details of linked Project in Produktyf Project without leaving the CRM app.
  • Search for items when linking – you can now search for items when linking. This feature allows you to find and link relevant information with ease.
  • New Active Frame – displays upcoming Actions (tasks) and other useful information.
  • Ability to set Meeting duration – when creating new meeting item you can now set the duration of the meeting which will be reflected in the event created in BlackBerry Calendar.
  • Autosave – this can be turned on in app settings and will periodically save all text changes when editing Notes and other CRM items in the application.
  • All-Inclusive Feature Pack – this application allows you to customize set of features based on your specific needs by purchasing individual features. In addition to this we are now introducing a new All-Inclusive Feature pack which is a single purchase item giving you access to all individual features (current and future) at a discounted price.

As mentioned above, Produktyf CRM is now out of Beta – the Beta tag has been dropped as the application has matured to be a fully featured information and relationship management application.

Produktyf CRM is free to use, in pretty much full functionality but with limited number of products as well as limited number of items per product. Limitations can be removed through several premium enhancement features available for you to choose, through an In-App purchase:

  • Contacts Integration – The ability to integrate project contacts through the device contact database
  • Unlimited Projects
  • Unlimited Items
  • Unlimited files
  • All-Inclusive Pack – The works 🙂

Here is the list of updated prices for available enhancements:

Feature Price
Contacts Integration $2.99
Unlimited Projects $1.99
Unlimited Items $1.99
Unlimited Files $2.99
All-Inclusive Pack (includes all of the above) $6.99

The folks at Produktyf offer a discount valid though May 31st, so you may want to grasp the moment and enjoy the reduced prices:
