Softools Sales Day

We had a great turn out for our first Softools Sales day and are most grateful to those that were able to attend. The purpose of the day was to help Channel Partners understand how best to position Softools against emerging business needs.  Key inputs were provided by: 

  • The Social Selling Company (TSSC): a dedicated B2B Social Sales solution provider, generating leads through Linkedin:
  • SalesTec: a Sales Management Consultancy that aims to drive sales performance, and support clients through the practical application of these new skills:

New Features

Platform Versioning

When a new version of the platform has been released you will now be prompted to refresh your screen so that you have the most recent version available to you. Through this you will see how we are constantly updating and improving the platform for the benefit of all our users!

This was part of our most recent update, Enjoy!

Forwards and back on records

This nifty little feature enables the user to click 'forwards' and 'back' between records and will auto-save whilst doing so. This means you can navigate through a list of projects quickly and easily whilst seeing the complete set of data. It is also great for Audits and Assessments – moving from one topic to another with a single click.

This feature is available now, so keep your eyes peeled!

In-List charts

This fantastic feature enables in-record charts to be displayed in the list report of records, this changes the way apps such as the KPI Dashboard app displays data.

Available now in App-Studio, contact your system administrator to enable it!
