NETLEDGER DELIVERS ENHANCED USABILITY FEATURES ACROSS ORACLE SMALL BUSINESS® SUITE, NETSUITE™ AND NETCRM™
SAN MATEO, CA, April 24, 2003—NetLedger, Inc., makers
of Oracle® Small Business Suite, today announced a set
of new, enhanced usability features across its award-winning
product offerings — including Oracle Small Business
Suite, NetSuite, and NetCRMT — delivering to users
unprecedented ease of use and more flexible customisation.
The enhanced usability features allow users to instantly
access information with fewer clicks; to gain greater
visibility of customer data; and to customise the way
the information is organised and displayed. In addition,
the new sorting and display capabilities in the Web
Store increase sales and customer satisfaction by allowing
web visitors to sort items by various criteria and to
view large numbers of items in a dense table format.
The Oracle Small Business Suite name is used under license
from Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ: ORCL).
"NetLedger's products are the most widely used application
services in the small and medium business market, and
this release embodies a lot of the great ideas we get
from our large and growing customer base," said Zach
Nelson, president and CEO of NetLedger.
New, enhanced usability features unveiled today include:
- Reduce Mouse-Clicks
New Activities Bar - users can now add any activity
to an entity record with one click. When working with
leads, prospects, customers, partners and vendors,
convenient one-click access has been added to create
new contact, events, tasks, e-mail, quotes, sales
orders and other related information. After adding
new activities and information, users are taken to
a screen where they can view and edit the newly entered
Completing Tasks - users can now mark a task as complete
directly from their home page. Users no longer have
to edit individual tasks and set their status to complete,
but can instead check off the task as Completed right
from their home tab.
- Greater Data Visibility
Sub-Customer/Jobs and Sub-Partners Tabs - users can
now view a customer's Sub-Customers and Jobs directly
from the parent customer record. Similarly, users
can view Sub-Partners while in the parent partner
Single View with No Tabs - Users now have the option
of viewing their records without tabs, allowing them
to view the record's entire content in one scrolling
form, rather than clicking on separate tabs to view
- Web Store and Publishing
Available in Oracle Small Business Suite and NetSuite,
users can personalise their Web Store customers' shopping
experience by displaying store items in dense list
layouts that can be sorted and contain an "Add To
Cart" button as part of the dense list. Users can
present much more information in a small area that
is easy for their customers to digest. The sorting
capabilities allow the Web customer to sort items
in alphabetical order, by price or any other column
that is part of the list. And the Add To Cart buttons
reduce the navigation back and forth frequency between
the items details page, making their overall shopping
experience much more enjoyable so they'll keep coming
back for more.
- Improved Reporting
Reporting has been enhanced to generate reports faster
than ever. Large reports are now delivered in a paginated
form, allowing much quicker load times. Users can
easily navigate around the report by using the Home,
End, Page Up, and Page Down keys on the keyboard.
A progress bar displayed at the bottom of the report
will automatically indicate when the report is fully
