Object Consulting is another one of our Microsoft Surface Strategic Partners out of Australia. Although Australia is one of the many hot spots for Surface development in the world, it’s during their winter that I see much more of our friends from down under. It’s funny how that works.
Chris Seymour was recently in Redmond to show me their travel solution called Object Explore. Learn more after the video break.

You may have seen nsquared on our blog before. They are a Microsoft Surface Strategic Partner based in Australia and travelling the world. Dr. Neil with nsquared was recently named our first Surface MVP. We’ve had him into our studio a few times to show us a range of their apps focused on education. Their MakeWords application has been Certified for Microsoft Surface. Recently, Dr. Neil showed me a collection of apps they are calling the nsquared Surface Business Pack.
The nsquared Surface Business Pack consists of three applications designed to enhance the conversation taking place at the Surface unit. The applications are documents, schedules and thoughts. (Thoughts isn’t shown in the video.) Learn more after the video break.

The nsquared documents application allows you to explore and discuss documents being displayed on the screen, these documents can be Word, Excel or Powerpoint files, loaded from a usb key or from a network drive.
Common questions heard at the meeting room table revolve around the schedules of the attendees. The nsquared schedules application presents the Microsoft Exchange calendar of for each attendee as their business card is placed on the Surface. New meetings can be created by simply placing business cards in the center of the screen.
The third application (not shown in in the video) is nsquared thoughts. The nsquared thoughts application enables participants to sketch out their thoughts on a blank canvas and then manipulate shapes and images to organize their thoughts.
These applications can be purchased individually or as a pack from nsquared.
