BI consultancy Project Brokers has launched an expense management application with a gimmicky twist - it can be accessed via the Xbox Kinect games console.
The Kinect integration means users can control the app using their body movements, letting them feel like Tom Cruise in the film Minority Report as they go about the exciting business of managing expenses.
The app "maximises visibility" of employee expenditure on travel, entertainment, business information services and telephony, says Project Brokers, enabling the extraction and consolidation of data from multiple vendors and sources into an interactive dashboard.
"We are bringing the sci-fi cutting edge experience of Minority Report to the reporting process for City firms," claims Daren Cox, CEO of Project Brokers.
In October, Lithuanian company Etronika demonstrated a beta version of an application that uses the Kinect motion sensor technology as an interface to on-screen consumer banking applications.
