CIO, does this ring a bell? Files, folders, backup, hardware, software, printers, ERP system, support, FTP access, databases, website, SOX audits… Phew!
A lot of tech work. Thanks to WorkBook you can cross some of points of your list. WorkBook will assist you as the CIO, in providing the employees with a system that just works. Since WorkBook is web based there is no local installation or maintenance to be done and it works great on both Mac’s and PC’s. WorkBook is a business system tailored to help the CIO in a project-driven business.
Hosting or on-premise
We let you choose if you want us to host your system or you want it to be installed on-premise. We have different data centers around the world and dependent on your location we install in the data center near to you. This ensures fast system performance and less waiting time. If you prefer to host the system on your own server, that’s fine too.
Files and storage
Even though WorkBook can be hosted in our data center, we can hook up the system with your local file server. That ensures that people working with huge files can dump their files to a local storage, instead of having to upload them using the internet. Every time a user creates a new client or a job, WorkBook will apply a fixed folder structure to the file server (or file servers). This means that all files are kept beautifully organized and everybody knows where to look.
Don’t worry. WorkBook is fully SOX compliant. Segregation of duty, Access Rights for Roles, Approvals. Everything.
API and integration
If you want to hook up WorkBook to another system. No problem! We have an API built on OData (Open Data Protocol) that allow you to connect your WorkBook to other systems. Besides that we have standard plug n’ play API’s for Microsoft Business Solutions (NAV and AX), SAP, Google Mail & Calendar, Microsoft Outlook, MagPeople, Dynamic AI, ReadSoft, ActiveCampaign, more than 30 banks (for online banking and credit card integration), Google Drive and Dropbox.
Free updates are included in the subscription fee. We release a new version roughly every 3 months and service patches on a regular basis. Every release is very well documented and contains new features as well as improvements to existing ones. A new update will never affect or change your current system setup and new features/screens are mostly disabled, and you can decide if you want to enable or not.
An update normally takes about 15 minutes and is usually scheduled to be done outside normal working hours. We recommend that you read the release notes before an update so you are aware of the changes.
It’s possible to arrange for a test update of a copy of your system, so you can see the changes with your own data.
WorkBook is a Rich Internet Application – a web based system that you can use on both Mac and PC to run it. The frontend system is developed with a combination using Microsoft Silverlight technology and HTML5. A Microsoft SQL Server holds the data and business logic.
WorkBook supports Single Sign On and LDAP by integrating to your Active Directory when installed on-premise.
The WorkBook App is available for free download in the Apple App Store for users on the go.
