Check out our new app - Location Profile Switcher

We can develop apps for your small business 

We have created a sample app that highlights just some of the capabilities we can build.  It's also a great tool to have on your phone! This app will allow you to setup different phone profiles and switch your profile automatically based upon your location. Please support us and download it here on the Google Play Store for Android phones.

If you like it, please share the link with your friends and give us a good review of the app on the Google Play Store! And like our page on Facebook to keep in touch with our latest news and future apps!

 

Here's a description of the app from the store listing

Create different phone profiles and switch your profiles automatically based upon your location!

Do you ever find yourself in the following situations?

  • You are constantly changing your phone settings based upon where you are
  • You only want bluetooth switched on when you are away from home (e.g. in your car)
  • You only want Wi-Fi switched on when you actually need it (e.g. in your home and at your favorite coffee shop).  
  • You want to have your volume switched off automatically when you reach certain locations (e.g. church)
  • You change settings throughout the day and want them reset back when you get home

If any of these or other any similar situations apply to you, then this app is perfect for you!

This app will allow you to setup unique profiles for different locations.  For example, when you are home, you may want to have your phone settings optimized for your home usage (e.g. wi-fi on, bluetooth off, alarm volume to max, ringer volume to max).  Conversely while work at work, you may want some of those settings changed (e.g. wi-fi off, bluetooth off, alarm volume to min, ringer volume to min).

In addition to letting you setup profiles for all of your relevant locations, it will also ACTIVATE those profiles AUTOMATICALLY once you have reached a certain distance from that location.  So there is no need to fumble around with clicking widgets on your phone when you have arrived at your location - this app will switch to the location's profile automatically and notify you once this has occurred.

The following is a list of settings that can be customized per location in this version of the app:

  • Wifi
  • Bluetooth
  • Ring Tone
  • Notification Sound
  • Ringer Volume
  • Music Volume
  • Alarm Volume
  • Screen Brightness

The app uses the latest geofencing technology from Google to ensure minimal battery usage.

Note: if you are running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and you wish to have this app control your screen brightness, please switch off the new Adaptive Brightness setting in Android (under Settings->Display->Adaptive Brightness).

Welcome to Pacific One Solutions

Welcome to Pacific One Solutions

Welcome! This is a very exciting day for us. The launch of a new website for our small business.  You may well know the feeling. Its thrilling to see everything finally come together, but terrifying when it comes to launch time!  

We want to keep it informal. Why? Because who, in small business, has time to wade through pages of detailed info or long articles? And informal and friendly is who we are. We work hard, and give professional results, but working in a relaxed way allows us to get more done. That's one thing we've learnt about starting our own small business. But that's what works for us. What works for you? Here, over the coming months, we'll share some of the trials and tribulations of running a small business. Our goal is to help small business with their IT needs, and that involves sharing our experiences along the way.

One of the things we find interesting in meeting other business owners is their story on how the business was formed. Was it on the back of a cocktail napkin and just one of those "lightbulb" moments? Or did it involve years of thought and refinement? Many years ago, we came up with the business idea for Pacific One Solutions. We were working and living in Australia and building a new house at the time. During the construction, we hired countless contractors and tradespeople to help complete our new family home. And it was frustrating! Most of the tradespeople were great at their trade, but had little or no IT or process to help organize their workload. Getting one to show up at your site at the right time was near impossible. Getting one to give you a quote was a challenge with many follow up phone calls.  We just couldn't understand it - why would a small business not want to prioritise new business? We eventually realized that they wanted new business, but had no easy way (nor the time) to keep track of it all. The businesses that did have some technology were those often helped by a family friend with a bit of IT knowledge. We knew we had to create a way to help.

Over the years, we also became fascinated with the variety of issues that small businesses face. Our realtor friends face challenges very specific to their industry, compared to some others we know in trade, for example. Small retailers online are challenged differently to those in a shopfront. All small business have issues of varying complexities. Our message is, you are not alone. Years later and after significant planning, Pacific One Solutions has been created to help solve some of those issues with you.  

We hope we can help your small business. Give us a call or an email for a free initial consultation, and let's talk. We'd love to know how your business started, and what dreams you have for it in the future.
