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:
