EXACT SUMMER '18 RELEASE
Experience the summer's hottest software improvements.
In many areas across the country school buses are back on the streets, but that doesn't mean summer is over, especially not for the Exact team. They recently released a number of new enhancements in Exact Globe and Synergy. We've reviewed the release notes and in this blog post have hand-picked some our favorite enhancements.
The Summer ‘18 release introduces new technology to allow project transaction data to stay in a single place.
Exact Synergy now has the functionality to exchange project transaction data, such as project invoices and WIP transactions through ELIS--Exact Lightweight Integration Server.
ELIS is a technology platform for managing data integrations between Exact GLobe, Exact Synergy as well as other solutions such as Microsoft Office, Exchange and any other application with a web services API. ELIS allows teams to centrally manage data integrations and quickly scale when more integreations are required.
Beginning January 2019 however, Exact will stop supporting many different integration solutions, so switching to ELIS before the new year is important. Learn more about ELIS and to begin preparing to make the switch here.
YOUR SCREEN. YOUR WAY.
The Summer '18 release makes personalizing screens, navigation menus and workspaces even easier.
Synergy users can now remove menu items shown under ‘My’ and ‘Quicklinks’ directly via the menu itself. Plus, when in workspaces, company communication and searching is now a breeze. The summer Synergy enhancements makes it possible to set a specific workspace that employees see when opening Exact Synergy. (HINT - your marketing or HR teams could use this screen to share important announcements like upcoming events or open benefits enrollment.)
