Datton is a BC based technology company with offices in Richmond and Kamloops. Datton has a wide range of successful experience in numerous capacities. Here is a snapshot of some of the things we've been up to in the last few years:
- develop enterprise software
- invent and develop unique intellectual property
- provide hosting solutions
- build companies from the ground up (successful start up)
- assemble sales forces
- develop sales strategies and processes
- develop CRM tools and software
- assemble customer retention teams
- develop customer service / retention strategies and tools
- create brands and marketing
Datton's primary focus is innovating and developing cutting edge technology and introducing unique intellectual property to the market place through strategic partnerships. Our experience is in assessing where current technology offerings in various industries fall short and create "industry first" solutions that are simple and easy for users to embrace, be more efficient and increase bottom line.
Datton's primary development team is located in Kamloops BC and business development office in Richmond BC. We are always looking for new and unique projects and great people to partner with. Datton is much more than a traditional software development company; our experience in the business, distribution and marketing side of things makes us the perfect choice for your next technology partner.
Datton can be engaged on a contract basis to develop enterprise software. Datton will assess the needs of the clients and present a comprehensive solution before any code is written. The project will be fully documented from a technical and non technical aspect and each phase of the development cycle will be implemented into an agile development environment. The customer will have full transparency during the development process as most projects are done in a series of 2 week development sprints. This allows our customers to get frequent updates and insight on the progress of their project greatly increasing efficiency, change of scope management and deadline accuracy.
Datton will assess opportunities presented by companies with a unique position / offering in a market place and may choose to engage in a subsidized development contract. In this case Datton would take a reduced amount of cash for development efforts in exchange for equity. Datton's expertise can be leveraged in this case far beyond software development as Datton has experience in almost every aspect of building a company from the ground up.
VC's often run into a situation where the idea being presented is great, the management team is great, the timing is right for the product/service in the market place but there are questions remaining around the conceptualized technology needed to make the idea a success. Quite often the "idea people" are not technical people and the development of such ventures is outsourced, or key technical people may be hired by non technical people. In most cases, both scenarios end up bad. This often has negative results or VC's choose not to invest in the idea because the technology piece of the puzzle is simply not there. Datton is the perfect solution for this situation. Datton has a long history of developing enterprise software as a partner, not a vendor. A partner has a vested interest in the success of the technology and company. Datton's past experience can be leveraged on many levels far beyond software development. Datton can be engaged on a cash and equity basis for software development and welcomes VC's to approach us with vetted opportunities.

Bignition started as an idea in 2005 and it quickly grew from a concept to an international business serving automotive dealers in Canada from BC to Quebec and in 7 states. Everything was developed in house from the ground up, including the product, business strategy, sales and service strategy / tools, sales and service management / tools, CRM software, marketing and business development.
Bignition was a first of its kind in the automotive industry allowing dealers to buy, sell and trade inventory amongst each other with no middle man. Bignition introduced new cutting edge technology that allowed automotive dealers to truly take advantage of a private industry network and stay connected in real time. Bignition was the first service to enable automotive dealers to instantly communicate with each other in a private network on a vehicle, buy list and multi car package basis via an installed desktop client. The desktop client not only facilitated communication but it communicated relevant activity on the network to users in real time through a desktop push notification. Users simply needed to only have their computer turned on and business critical information (such as: new vehicles entering the network, new buyers for their inventory, new multi-car packages, bids on their inventory and more) was delivered directly to the users desktop system tray.
Bignition also introduced the first ever national broadcast room, allowing automotive dealers to communicate their buying and selling needs on a local or national scale. New users instantly inherited a network of over a thousand industry peers with communication only a click away. Bignition enabled users to obtain an audience in a way that had never before been done.
Eventually Bignition was sold to Auto Trader Canada, but not before garnering additional offers from US based companies. The unique IP developed was also licensed to two additional industries who still use the Bignition technology today.x
Chatterfox is the technology behind industry cast. Chatterfox is very flexible in its approach and can be utilized in any industry. The product can be plugged into current platforms, used as a standalone product and be modified to accommodate specific industry needs. Chatterfox will connect you to your industry like never before!
Industry cast (utilizing chatterfox technology) enables its members to communicate with other industry professionals on a large scale, delivering useful information in the most efficient way available today! Industry cast makes it possible for users to communicate with their industry on an international, national or local scale at the push of button. Information is delivered in real time to the desktop, tablet or mobile smartphone.
Social networking sites along with business network sites have attempted to give people a centralized communication forum. However these forums are for the most part clumsy to use and useful information is often hard to find buried among non-relevant information. Industry cast is the only product of its kind delivering a focused approach to specific industries and its professionals.launch Industry Cast's website x
BC BeefNET is an online beef carcass ordering tool for chefs to have easy access to certified British Columbia beef.
The idea for the program originated from a marketing research conducted in 2011 by Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, which was sponsored and funded by British Columbia Association of Cattle Feeders, Cariboo Cattlemen's Association, Investment Agriculture Foundation of BC, and Agriculture Canada. The research resulted in a strong demand for BC beef and a great interest from the chefs to use the software that will increase their access to local beef and simplify their cost calculation by displaying the cost per serving for each cut available in the carcass.
British Columbia Investment Agriculture Foundation and British Columbia Association of Abattoirs made it possible for BC BeefNET to come to live with two major goals to achieve; open up a new whole carcass market for BC producers and abattoirs, and provide chefs with a "Cost per Serving" figure so they know what their cost for a dish will be even before the dish is ready.
BC BeefNET was developed with simplicity being its top priority. The cut selection page is the outcome of several focus meetings with experts in the industry that shows users the complex relationship between each cut in their sections in a very clear way. Chefs will be able to come to the system and complete an order in less than 5 minutes, and there will be less communication overhead over the phone for producers trying to explain why some cuts cannot be ordered along with certain cuts.
BC BeefNET will be launched for chef members of British Columbia Association of Abattoirs in January 2014.launch BC Beef Net x
Electrical Maintenance Tracking System (EMTS) is an electronic daily log system used in Teck-Highland Valley Copper to keep track of the activities performed during shifts that has revolutionized the traditional way of keeping logs in book.
Now, instead of carrying the book anywhere they go and have it reviewed by their foremen (who have many other books to review), shifters can enter their tasks and problems on a tablet. The application is easy to use: tap the button to open the log creation form, enter your content, and hit SAVE! EMTS will perform a sync with the existing data once it detects Wi-Fi signals, so even if shifters are out in the mine pit with no Wi-Fi, they will never lose their work entered into the system.
Administrators will have a desktop version of the application which enables them to act promptly to problems that occur during their team' work shifts. Logs that require immediate attention of foremen are highlighted in red. Filtering and sorting of logs are also available for any search that is necessary. Communication between shifters and foremen has become smoother with the ability to write comments and attach images to the logs, creating a chronological documentation of how the task was performed and brought to resolution.
EMTS also enables users to access equipment manuals, locate where the various pieces of equipment stand on the pit at the moment of access, and view reports. It has been used since 2012 and is on an ongoing development process with new features.x
