The Mobility Train is Leaving the Station

Those who miss the mobile express may get left behind in the business world. The iPhone and similar devices are more powerful than desktop computers of yesterday. Ice Cave builds custom iPhone and iPad apps!

An “Elevator Pitch” Transformed

Marketing specialists talk about the need to craft and memorize an “elevator speech.” As you know this little pitch spells out your business proposition in a colorful, memorable way. One new spin on the elevator speech is to use your iDevice. Envision a fellow passenger on your next business flight watching your brief video demo.

 

Software and System Demos and Tutorials

 

Software Demo

Increase Product Understanding; Win Confidence

A good demo is more than just a hello and a few clicks! A demo-tutorial makes the logic of your software apparent. Features and benefits come alive. As you know, sometimes the best marketing is through an indirect educational approach. Ice Cave has created numerous demos, even creating demonstratations of concept software not yet developed!

Paint a Picture

The skills involved in a good demo are diverse. Good communication, the eye of a videographer and ample digital skills all factor into a the construction of a compelling demonstration.

Database Tools and Automated Publishing Systems

 

Filemaker Pro

Automation is Art

FileMaker Pro has won 49 awards in the U.S., more than its next eight competitors combined. No database compares for rapid deployment or affordability. Often catalogs and technical documents need the power of a database to be published and updated efficiently and accurately.


Formerly a certified FileMaker consultant, Craig Wall is a huge fan of database automation and Ice Cave adds the aesthetic touch by integrating InDesign publishing to make final documents convincing and exciting. Nobody else in Alaska provides such a powerful service. This service can save thousands of hours in labor.

 

 

Web Presentations

Web Prison

Avoid Web Prison

Donʼt let your site sink into a prison where visits are few and search engine listings are meager. Solitary isolation will not help your mission objectives!

 

Watch Video: “ Web Prison” (56 sec)

 

Show Them what you Got

The web browsing public expects more everyday and grow increasingly impatient. One click and your best customer might jump to a competing site! Lively web presentations will focus your audience upon your message. These same videos can be redistrubuted on YouTube, where the web is a raging fire.

Flash Animation and Interfaces

Flash — The Living Web

Ice Cave and Flash are almost synonymous. Flash sites or embedded Flash elements help form a picture, tell a story and draw the user into a complete experience. These types of sites are called “immersive” because the cumulative experience becomes like a big swimming pool of the imagination, where the user is in charge and can navigate with clicks and rollovers.

 

If you require an online game, simulation, interface, presentation or mini-application you can consider Ice Cave as Alaskaʼs Flash Central.

Computerized Kiosks

i-Phone

A Video Display in your Lobby Provides Sales, Service or Info

A spare computer is all you need for an effective kiosk. Consider adding attractive cabinetry or a big screen. Put one in a lobby or at a point of sale to increase service to your employees and customers. The Cave can design video graphics and a mechanism to provide data—or capture it.

When it is Event Check-in Time

Do you need to automate the check-in of attendees at a large event? Starting an event in an organized fashion will make attendees happy and assure a smooth start. You might also wish to up-sell or cross-sell special sessions, recordings or gift items.
