Colibri Software worked with the Kings Volunteer Resource Centre (KVRC) to create a central hub where visitors could find volunteer opportunities in Kings County. The KVRC team worked together to add content to the map which was then embedded in their website.
Colibri Software also worked with the creator of Uncommon Common Art to map out a collection of outdoor art exhibitions across the Annapolis Valley. We helped that organization map out the locations of each art exhibition with pertinent details. This map will be embedded in the organization's website, allowing visitors to get directions to exhibit locations, and read background information on each artist.
This mobile app was developed for “Apps4Halifax” competition in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and won bronze in the Live-It-Up category. Developed for Android and IOS, the app is a walking tour type app that delivers geolocated content based on gps data. The application delivers geo-located content based on the user's interest and location; once the user arrives at a destination, the application will notify them and provide content that is relevant to the location.
Wolfville's Colibri Software used the PhoneGap framework to develop the app for both Android and IOS. The app is available in both the Apple App Store and on Google Play. It uses native push notifications on the phone to announce when content is available.
Colibri Software developed this app with very tight time constraints.

Built for the Nunavut Wildlife Management Board, CBMN is a mobile app designed to enable hunters to record wildlife data in Nunavut. This is accomplished by sending rugged mobile devices with hunters when they go to the wilderness on a hunt. The mobile device uses a built in GPS to record location and a questionnaire for hunters to enter observations. Upon returning from the hunt the device is given to a data clerk who uploads the data to a webserver so it can be organize and analyzed. This project was completed successfully in partnership with Noreca Consulting.

Colibri Software has done a number of projects with RX Security, a drug prescription pad company. The first project involved developing an in-house desktop application that connected to a database that runs on one of their office servers. This custom software application tracks customers and orders and allows workers to design prescription pads in Microsoft Word. Customer information can automatically be injected into pad templates and new templates are easily created in Word.
When a sufficient number of orders have been made, the software arranges the pads on a ‘plate’ and exports a printable pdf document. This document is used for RX Security's printing process to create the prescription pads.

Colibri Software developed a custom piece of software designed to assist people who are learning English as a second language. The original scope of the project included correcting common mistakes in pronunciation and intonation. The user speaks into a microphone and the speech is analyzed by the application and speech errors are displayed. This project continues to be developed on Wolfville, Nova Scotia.

Colibri Software started by developing a proof-of-concept for the pronunciation part of the project. This took the form of a Ruby on Rails app running on a server and used client side AngularJS for the website. A Java Servlet analyzes the speech using an open source speech recognition library called Sphinx and custom extensions written by Colibri Software actually pick out the errors.
