We use Slack for messaging here at LocalSearch and love it very much. We also use PRTG for system monitoring and notifications – why not integrate them both together so I can receive PRTG notifications in a channel in Slack?
While Slack has a large gallery of integrations PRTG unfortunately wasn’t on the list. So I have written a quick windows app to allow notifications from PRTG via its ‘Execute Application’ notifier. While I specifically built it for PRTG it’s a command line app which could potentially use to publish any type of message to Slack.

As a Network Engineer for a large company I cannot recommend Paessler’s PRTG for systems monitoring enough. WIth over 100 different types of sensors built into PRTG it’s the definite goto tool for me to monitor devices and services within our organisation. Great Application.
If you do any type of system administration you cannot be without a monitoring tool – and I think personally this is one of the best ones out there and has infinite options to allow you to customise it for your business..

I have been implementing some native mobile mapping in our new product Workify which employs a mobile UI for travelling Staff which enables them to map and get directions to a specific job that’s been assigned to them.
After many hours of exploring the best way to do this which would make Windows Phone, Android and Apple IOS open their native mapping app from within our mobile HTML5 UI I found a fantastic article from John Allan where he’s done a lot of the leg work already in exactly what is need for each Operating System:
InControlCMD is over a year old now and while it was good at the time I decided to rewrite it from scratch to incorporate some features I have always wanted it to do.
So may I present InControlCMD2 – an new and improved version of the original InControlCMD.
The new version sports the following features:
