7 - About CONNX Solutions, Inc.
CONNX KPiSync is a Mobile Application to help users 'Visualize your Key Business Metrics on any device in real time'. The CONNX KPiSync solution was designed with the purpose of providing users with a quick and easy method of delivering Key Performance Indicators from all facets of a business to users via any device, smartphone tablet, or PC.
CONNX KPiSync keeps you in touch with your critical business information (KPi's - key performance indicators) from any corporate application or data store, any time, all the time, real-time, whether you are in the office, on the go, or at home. KPiSync makes it simple to keep track of your critical business metrics simply by defining a key performance indicator which will query your enterprise data. These indicators are then pushed to your desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile devices, using our secure Microsoft Azure Cloud.
There are three components to the CONNX KPiSync solution, the Administrator, the Store Application, and the Mobile Application. The Store and Mobile Applications dis- play key performance indicators to the user that is sent from the administrator server. Using our streamlined Administrator application, the KPi's are defined, described, and grouped. The KPi's are then securely pushed out through Microsoft Azure to the KPiSync Application residing on your desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile KPiSync inter- face. As the data changes, push notification keeps the devices up to date, and alerts you to any change that needs to be addressed.
What makes KPiSync different than other mobile dashboard solutions?
KPiSync is the only 100% cloud dashboard delivery solution for mobile devices. Other dash- board solutions are simply wrappers around a web interface that must be set up in the cor- porate environment. With other solutions, holes in firewalls must be poked open to enable the mobile application to “reach into” the corporate environment to access the data, or a VPN connection is needed to access the key performance data.

These solutions have several limitations. As a user on the go, you only know about critical changes in the state of your data when you run your application and check the key performance indicators. Additionally, these tools require quite a bit of infrastructure setup.
A dedicated web or application server needs to be in place to serve up the results to the mobile devices, and holes must be poked in the corporate firewall to allow mobile devices to access the data.
The goal with CONNX KPiSync was to deliver a solution that required a minimal amount of infrastructure adjustments, while still providing high performance and secure access to you critical information.
KPiSync is the first solution to provide secure delivery of your critical key performance indicators quickly and securely to your mobile and desktop devices.

The admin tool enables you to manage your CONNX KPiSync account & logins in our cloud service, and provides an easy to use GUI for creating and managing our KPi’s.
The CONNX Azure mobile cloud service securely delivers your KPi and push notifications to all of your mobile devices and desktop applications. All access is secured with SSL and a CONNX dashboard user ID & password.
The mobile application runs in Windows Phone, Surface tablet, IOS devices, Android devices, and windows 8 desktop PCs.
Additionally CONNX KPiSync is the first and only dashboard solution with integrated push notification. This means that as your data values change, you get notified right away. This is the most critical aspect of a key performance indicator.
