Visibility and tracking of data is critical to any enterprise system. The Audit Trail provides a full history of what changed, what values, and when on all records. The platform will also allow users to be notified via email, SMS or Slack if changes to selected fields have been made.
24/7 support is available though the online Help Centre accessible from the Process and System Help buttons on each site. Process Help explains how each app works and System Help explains how to use system features. The Chat Room feature on all apps also allows users to share share ideas and insights with colleagues.
Great User Interface
The Softools platform has been designed with the user in mind. A great User Experience encourages and motivates users to want to use the system. The ability to operate how and when the user wants is key to long-term use.
Clients want apps and solutions that reflect their ways-of-working - bespoke solutions BUT without bespoke code. This is achieved through the zero-code configuration capability available within the integrated App Studio. Sites are also reflective of client logos and colour schemes.
The Softools platform has 'published APIs' that allows you to connect and exchange data with internal systems such as SAP. All apps can therefore run in stand-alone or integrated format.
Speed, speed, speed
Softools is fast to build, fast to deploy and fast to use. Apps can typically be built in hours and instantly deployed at the click of a button. The 'off-line' capability will also make systems as fast as apps running on your PC or smart phone.
Zero-code app build
You no longer need to be a IT developer to build apps. Use the Softools zero-code App Studio to design, build and deploy apps in hours. Simple and complex apps can be created that work in stand-alone or integrated format.
Scalable to any number
The Softools platform can be scaled to enable 1 million users and 1,000s of apps running in a single solution. We can also deploy solutions anywhere in the world at the press of a button.
Mobile & Off-line operation
All apps built on the Softools platform will automatically run on any device from PC to Tablet and Smart Phone. App will also be available off-line - allowing users to operate in environments where internet bandwidth is very poor or even non-existent.
Data can be exported from a record or report in both csv (data table) and Microsoft Word where output documents can be formatted with logos, colours and formatting. This feature allows data to be shared with non-system users.
Data can be entered into the system in three ways: 1) manually directly into the data input fields in the web forms, 2) using csv import-export interface documents, and 3) via the published APIs that allow real-time data exchange with third party systems of IoT devices.
Permissions and Security
Permissions determine what a user can do (e.g. build applications, configure reports or add users) and Security determines what a user can see (e.g. read-only, read-write access or no visibility to records).
Across all apps you have the ability to attach all types of media: images, videos, PPT, Word documents, PDF documents - simply drag & drop from your PC, tablet or smart phone.
Softools offers a rich and flexible dashboarding and reporting capability. Choose from over 30 different chart types (e.g. Bubble, Gantt, Monte Carlo, Bar, Line...) to visualise and showcase your data.
New Softools sites can be set-up anywhere in the world in hours. Solutions run on the secure and scalable Microsoft Azure global hosting platform with servers located in all regions including North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and China. Users can also operate in any language.
