Exact Synergy App for iPhone 1.1 available now!

Written by Martin Ortgiess on . Posted in Exact Synergy

Version 1.1 of the iPhone app is out. Download it from the App Store NOW! For our Exact Product Blog readers we’ll describe below how to activate the sneak preview of the dashboard functionality on your iPhone or iPad. You can find more details below.

Version 1.1 is a result of big improvements, which at first sight are not always visible. After the update, your app will still look the same.

Some nice improvements which are done based on direct customer feedback are:

  • Add your time stamp in your workflow remarks.
  • The handling of time off has been improved, to make it clear for you that your time off has been submitted and is waiting for approval.
  • For first time users, we simplified the login procedure.
  • The iPad can be used in landscape mode, which is a must for users with integrated keyboards.
  • 100+ other small enhancements, like the way you set the security level and priority in a request

One big new feature is the availability of dashboards to be shown on your iPhone/iPad. Under a new menu, option ‘Reports’ you can view all your SQL reports on you mobile IOS device. We still have several ideas how to make this feature even more powerful and are open for feedback by our users. Therefore we’ll make this functionality only available under a special sneak preview option for now.

How to get started with dashboards on your IOS app:

  1. All the SQL Reports shown on your Exact Synergy Enterprise homepage are available on your IOS app as well. So before you start, make sure you have the reports available on your Exact Synergy Enterprise homepage.
  2. It’s a sneak preview and you need to link the role ‘Sneak preview iPhone’ to your person card to get the dashboards available on your IOS app.
  3. Your Exact Synergy installation must be up to date (update in October2011 or later) or the mobile server files are installed manually (read more about this here)
  4. You are ready for the Action! Good luck and happy apping!

If you already use the Exact Synergy app for iPhone, you will be notified by the App Store to update the Exact Synergy App. If you are a new user, you can download the app here.

Knowing your products, prices and availability is key to make a sale. Having a catalog at hand offering this information in real time is a necessity no sales rep can do without these days. But what happens when the assortment is large or items very much  alike? You do not want to struggle finding products or make mistakes as your prospected customer expects a direct answer.

Dear Android user

Written by Martin Ortgiess on . Posted in Exact Synergy

Since the introduction of the iPhone app last June, you were asking me time after time when we are ready with the Android App.

Well, let me tell you that last couple of months we have worked hard on the Android app, with the goal to build a native App with the same user experience as the iPhone app.

Looking to the first feedback from my colleagues at Exact who are already working with the Anroid App, it looks like that goal is achieved!

The Android App looks like the iPhone App, but in fact is a brand new product. It is nice to see how well the native Android behavior and navigation is appreciated by its users.

The Android app is almost ready now and we are running some final tests.

I expect to App to be available in the Android market within a month and I will update you via the blog.

Thanks for your patience.
