Release Features New User Interface, Customisable Management Dashboard and Smart Client

Reading, UK, 19th April 2007: Numara Software, Inc. today announced the launch of Numara Track-It! 8, the next generation of the world’s most widely-installed help desk and asset management solution. Available immediately, Numara Track-It! 8 sets a new standard for usability, personalisation and productivity. New features include a redesigned, Microsoft™ Outlook-like user interface (UI) that makes the product even easier to use, a customisable management dashboard with real-time updates to monitor key performance indicators (KPIs) and a Smart Client, providing the same rich user experience whether running over a LAN or a WAN.

“The release of Track-It! 8 is the most significant new version in the company’s history,” said Andy White, Director, International (EMEA and APAC) at Numara Software, Inc. “Market feedback has been positive and we’re confident that interest levels will continue to rise. From a user perspective, the new features are particularly valuable as an individual can now personalise views, templates, reports and more; therefore navigation becomes easier, while connections and searches run faster. Overall, these enhancements will improve levels of productivity which has got to be good news for any business.”

Numara Track-It! was originally designed to be the easiest solution to learn and use. The milestone release of version 8 now introduces the concept of personalisation with many new features created to ‘suit the way you work’. Not only does it now offer customisable asset templates to track only the hardware attributes required for an environment but with just a few clicks, easy-to-use, flexible work order templates can now be created to address common, duplicable tasks such as password reset and the processing of new hires. Users can also customise business rules for notification and escalation of customer requests as well as establishing service level agreements and skills-based-routing.

David Coyle, Researcher at Gartner, Inc., states: “Adaptable and concise reporting remains a top concern for IT service desk management,” states David Coyle, Research Director at Gartner, Inc. "Customisable dashboards that provide aggregated reports give IT management the information they need to make judicious decisions that help lower costs and increase business satisfaction.”

For new Numara Track-It! 8 users the product is incredibly flexible, easy to use, can be deployed rapidly and closely aligned to your needs, resulting in enhanced productivity across the business.
