BLOG. SMART PRACTICAL BUSINESS ADVICE

Quick Update – We’ve been busy in the background…

It just dawned on me that whilst we’ve been so focused on working on WORK[etc], I’ve completely neglected the WORK[etc] blog!

It
has been 2 months since I last posted an update and to stop the reek of
ghost town advancing any further, here is a brief update on what we’ve
been up to:

  • Support has been consolidated and revamped.
    We now have an expanding library of training videos and a lot more buzz
    around the support forums. Anyone can view our support area, but you
    must be logged into your account to participate:
    http://admin.worketc.com/Community/Videos
  • We have a
    new, cleaner web site coming soon. The new site will include a bunch
    of demonstration videos as well as taking the WORK[etc] blog in a
    completely new direction.
  • We have completed a rewrite
    of the document management tool that will allow all our customers a
    better upload/download experience.
  • We have set a
    time-line for migrating WORK[etc] to a private cloud-computing
    environment which will give us total hardware, network and geographic
    redundancy.  Our uptime has been 100% for the last few months, but we
    are building for the future here.
  • Simon and I have been
    compiling a huge list of enhancements and new features for a version
    2.6 release of WORK[etc] around December this year. We’ll be publishing
    this list over at the forums for comments shortly, but if you want to
    get involved before then, please post your ideas at
    http://admin.worketc.com/Community/Forums?Forum=2
  • iPhone App.
    We are working toward an early 2010 release of a native WORK[etc]
    application for the iPhone, to be followed by a Windows Mobile and
    Blackberry release. We like to use
    the services of our customers, so if you are a WORK[etc] customer with
    iPhone application development experience, please get in contact.

Also,
we are working on translating WORK[etc] into a number of different
languages. A Spanish version is almost complete, with French and
Italian on the way. If you would like a free, unlimited copy of
WORK[etc] for your business, just head over and register at our
translation page:

Recycling Today to Save Tomorrow

The world is drowning in garbage, and we’re all starting to suffer because of it. One of the worst is electronic waste, or e-waste.

Tried and Tested WORKetc Tips From Real Users Pt. 1

I’m not bragging when I say that WORKetc has a lot of features. It’s just stating a fact. After all, would you expect any less from an all-in-one business management software that seamlessly merges CRM, projects, sales, billing, help desk, and more in one app? Another thing I’ve always harped on about is the level […]

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 […]

WORKetc Soon to be Powered by the World’s Largest Cloud Network

Right around 2002, Amazon had a problem: their app engineers didn’t have the necessary infrastructure and tools with which to build products without having to lose too much time talking to their networking engineers. They got rid of the need for this constant back-and-forth by building a system that would let them build web-scale applications […]
