Hot! WORKetc What’s in the Next Major Release?

The next major release for WORKetc, the popular collaborative project management tool, will cover a number of areas:Worketc screen 1

  • Improvements to the existing custom fields feature
  • Facility to save views
  • Updated Sales and CRM to include tables that can be customized
  • Account roles and permissions to give greater control over who can access and update project related information

This major release will result in changes to the underlying workings of the application and, with this in mind, WORKetc is being offered on a beta release basis for the first twenty who choose to opt in (a limitation set on the first run of the beta release).  Migration onto the beta release involves only a maximum of five minutes down time but does need time zone settings to be in place within the user’s account.

In addition to new and improved functionality, the WORKetc infrastructure was upgraded at the beginning of March to an architecture offering full redundancy with load balancing and SQL clustering, bringing with it the following improvements:

  • A significant improve in the performance on all accounts
  • The ability to increase the size of the WORKetc business by over a three times

Another key development for WORKetc in 2012 is its implementation of a dedicated, that is housed off-site and allows for daily backups that have a retention period of 14 days.  So, if everything goes belly-up, they can restore full state.

The team at WORKetc is also hoping to deliver another beta release covering integration with Xero, Quickbooks Desktop and improved Google Contact Syncs in the near future.
