Next release: First 25 beta slots now available

Now available to our favorite beta testers is the new Discussion tool allowing you to select any project, sales lead or support ticket and invite co-workers to chat and collaborate in real time. This release also includes a new Text Editor with new productivity features.

As soon as we’ve patched up one last little performance issues, we’ll be pushing the latest release out to 25 21 lucky accounts for beta testing.

I’m pretty confident there won’t be many issues with this release as we’ve been bashing it around internally for a while now.  And I gotta say, it is pretty darn cool.   So much so, that going back to the current version feels like a bad timewarp.

A huge part of this release is the new Discussion tool.   Discussions allow you to:

  • Chat with your team about any sales lead, project, task, support case or customer directly inside of WORK[etc].
  • Formally request a response on a topic from a particular co-worker.
  • Like posts, follow discussions and hide discussions that you’re not interested in.

How will it help me?

  • Eliminate the endless torrent of emails you have to deal with.  I estimate my work email has dropped by at least 50%.
  • Access a simple list of posts and discussions to scan through at the start of each day to instantly see what has been happening throughout your business.
  • Call out to someone you need a response from, rather than just assuming that person will see your group email and decide they should reply.

And then we also have a huge update to the text editor as well as about another 100 CRM productivity enhancements and user experience tweaks.  Here’s a walk through of what has been improved:

The Hidden Costs of “Free” CRMs

While getting coffee a couple of days ago I overheard someone in the line behind me say one of the most cliched lines ever set to music: “The best things in life are free.” That may very well be true in a sort of metaphysical or emotional aspect (some of us might actually have to […]

Work Smarter, Work Faster, and Save Time with WORKetc and G Suite

Google unveiled a new name for their popular suite of productivity apps last year. Instead of Google Apps for Work, it’s now known simply as G Suite. As a Google Cloud Partner, we were quick to conform to the new naming convention. If you’ve looked over our G Suite help docs over the past few […]
