It’s been a week since the GeekWire Sports Tech Summit and we here at Akvelon are still thinking about it. What a great event! The panel speakers were incredible with lots of takeaway knowledge and wisdom which made us excited to be in Seattle and involved in sports technology innovations. Sue Bird’s panel and Dr. Uma Jayaram’s talk struck us the most. Between Bird’s push for smart use of data in the world of sports and Dr. Jayaram’s enthusiasm for innovation in meaningful virtual experiences, the entire day was inspiring.

In between the panels and speakers, we were excited to showcase our own involvement in sports tech and virtual experiences with a demo of our augmented reality MiniGolf game developed for the Microsoft HoloLens.
The MiniGolf game allows for users to play a small round of golf on a virtual course overlaid on the real world. Our HoloLens application makes it possible to play golf anywhere. Even in your living room, kitchen or, in our case, the CenturyLink Event Center.
We built a virtual mini golf course in the hallway of the event center with the HoloLens and several attendees of GeekWire’s Sports Tech Summit participated in our demo. It turned into a heated competition at some points with many players asking about their scores curious to know if they were still placing well and in the running to win a prize.
We are extremely grateful to everyone who decided to give our new technology a try. Take a look at some of the participants in our demo having fun on the augmented reality green!

We appreciate everyone who came by to try out our new technology and a huge thanks to GeekWire for organizing an incredible event! See you at the next one.
Gmail is one of the most popular free email clients, for a good reason. It’s simple, organized, does a great job filtering out spam, and provides free POP and IMAP options. This is why it’s really no surprise that so many people want to use it for personal and business purposes.
Gmail’s ubiquity and adoption inspired us to create a Chrome extension for the Dynamics CRM Integration with Gmail. Our goal was to create a way for people to perform the most common CRM tasks directly from Gmail, such as tracking emails, working with activities and creating records and contacts. Based on initial success and user uptake of the original implementation, today we’re releasing a new version of our Dynamics CRM Integration for Gmail Chrome Extension with improved functionality, and a great new look that fits right into the Google style.
Our aim with Dynamics CRM Integration for Gmail V3 is to make email tracking easier, so that users are not forced to take extra steps in organizing a CRM workflow. This is achieved with a new user interface and experience which fits seamlessly into the Gmail design for quick access to all CRM email tracking tools within the extension.
Now users are also able to quickly create new CRM entities directly from Gmail. All necessary attributes and set up options for relationships are included within the “Track Email” option. Users need only click save and close CRM and the new record will appear in the Gmail extension.
The new version also allows for users to get a quick glance of any emails currently being tracked with Dynamics CRM with green arrows, versus those which are not being track marked with red arrows.
As with previous versions, tracking emails can be set by “Record Type” within the “Set Regarding” tab in the “Track Email” option. This is a CRM iFrame connecting directly to your account in Dynamics.
Users are now able to sync their Dynamics CRM calendar with Gmail or their Google Calendar with Dynamics CRM. For those of us who have several calendars on many different clients, this is a huge value add.
The “Activities” tab for version 3 of Dynamics CRM Integration for Gmail has been completely redesigned to support all types of CRM Activities. The “Activity” card displays detailed information snippets such as due date, time and duration, subject, priority, and descriptions (short and long versions). All activity fields are clickable and users can quickly open each “Activity” in CRM. In addition, we added the ability to filter, sort and search activities. Similar to the Dynamics CRM view/functionality, right in your Gmail. Finally, there is a new option to quickly create any type of “Activity” directly from Gmail to further the efficiency of your time and strategy.
Dynamics CRM Integration with Gmail works great with Global Search and Global Preview applications. These separate tools for Dynamics CRM allow users to search, view, and navigate their CRM entities in one place. All tracked emails, contacts, leads, etc., created in Gmail will be available immediately in Dynamics CRM and in Global Search results.
Dynamics CRM Integration for Gmail is now available on the Chrome Web Store and we are offering a 14 day free trial. Click here to add the Dynamics CRM Integration for Gmail Chrome Extension to your browser now!
We held our annual Akvelon Holiday Party on December 18th! Check out some of the photos from the event:
