TrackerSuite.Net 4.0 Released: Offers Organizations Highly Configurable Project, IT and HR Solutions
Moving your enterprise to the Cloud has never been simpler, with Web based solutions for Projects, IT and HR that offer simple migration, code-less configuration, process mapping, and user-customizable experiences that make data discovery and drill-down almost effortless.
Automation Centre is pleased to announce the release of TrackerSuite.Net 4.0 (http://www.TrackerSuite.Net), the latest version of its Cloud based enterprise productivity solution suite. Redesigned from the ground up to provide faster solutions, better business configuration and a new, powerful user experience, TrackerSuite.Net 4.0 empowers both the organizations it serves and the users that leverage it with modules for Project Portfolio and IT Management, Time and Billing, Purchasing, Invoicing, CRM and HR.
“TrackerSuite.Net 4.0 is a landmark release,” said Steven Birchfield of Automation Centre. “It has significant performance improvements- it’s faster than previous versions, in many cases an order of magnitude faster, and there is a new security model as well as productivity features. But the greatest achievement of this release is the power it places in the hands of individual users and the organizations that use it.”
“With TrackerSuite.Net 4.0, users can easily shape their own experience, how data is presented to them and how they work with it. Organizations can customize security, forms, menu choices, and workflow to wrap around their existing processes. All of this happens without anyone having to touch a line of code. Our innovative release process of defining release themes, platform changes, and feature targets has once again produced a product that is second to none.”
