Online business solutions provider WorkSmart.net has just released new ready-to-use solutions templates for its subscription-based hosted digital workplace. The business functions now covered include not only project and customer management, but also HR management, marketing management and support services. The service also features substantially enhanced WorkSmart Web Databases, providing an environment for users to quickly design, build and deploy further custom solutions tailored to their unique business processes and information sharing needs.
WorkSmart.net was designed to minimize costs and deployment issues by allowing enterprises to hit the ground running with a fully-functional and ready-to-use digital workplace aimed at boosting the effectiveness of distributed teams.
With this latest release, WorkSmart.net goes far beyond the standard “office on the web” functionality now common in many competing platforms. WorkSmart.net provides at no extra cost a development environment which delivers unlimited sites with user defined structures, complex user access permissions, and multiple web databases. Each database and its multiple views can be populated and modified “on the fly” through the front end using a spreadsheet-like interface which offers a full array of field types, input validation, audit trails, and bulk commit and rollback of records. This delivers a flexible way to capture, organize and share in a single integrated environment any type of business information such as time and expense sheets, stock sheets, asset management records, etc… The data can be imported and exported from and to standard formats. The expense and effort of installing desktop-based boxed applications is eliminated, together with the whirlwind of e-mails which accompanies the chaotic upload and download of multiple versions of spreadsheets, databases and other documents.
Jacques Fade, Head of Communications at Designlinks International, the developers of WorkSmart.net, says: “I believe we are now offering the optimal balance for rapid deployment. We deliver both the quick wins of a fully functional web office “out of the box” and the flexibility of a fully customizable environment that requires no specialist development skills to configure. Our SAAS model provides the benefits of an integrated digital workplace in a zero up-front investment context for as little as $7 per user per month.“
A fully functional 21 day free trial of the enhanced service is available from the website.
