Last Wednesday, we organised our first coffee morning here at Commusoft HQ – and I have to say it was a great deal of fun!
We started with breakfast, which was enjoyed looking out at the beautiful view of London's Canary Wharf right opposite our offices. The discussion then moved on to how people could optimise their experience of using the Commusoft software.
Next, founder of Commusoft Jason Morjaria spent a bit of time talking about the highs and lows of 2016 from Commusoft's perspective and sharing the company's plans for 2017. Attendees were then able to speak with Nisha, our head of client operations, about any problems they might be having with the system and how these could possibly be resolved.
All in all, it was a wonderfully relaxed way to hear your voices and get your ideas of where the company is going – we hope we get to meet more of you next time! It always makes such a huge difference to be able to put faces to the names we hear. :)
Looking back on 2016
Last year was a big one for Commusoft, and below are only a few of the many highlights from the past 12 months:
- Existing clients migrated to the new version of the software – more than 10 million records have already been moved. To give you an idea of the pace of progress, five new clients are moving this weekend and more than 100 clients will be migrated by the end of Q1 2017.
- We've been working on stabilisation and performance: more than 1,000 separate bug fixes and performance improvements were implemented in 2016, scaling up our infrastructure to handle larger and larger companies to helping you grow your business.
- We introduced a host of new features, including: reporting improvements, office tasks, linking into job actions, credit card integration and mobile invoicing.
We're excited about 2017!
Over the next few months period, we're hoping to release:
- improvements in reporting;
- saved reports;
- dashboard reports;
- portals; and
- many more improvements!
Commusoft wants to be the best job management system in the world, so we’re also working on our jobs, parts and engineer to-do list features. This includes a range of further features that we know will make a massive difference to companies this year.
Stock control is another major area we’ve been working on for a number of months and plan to finalise in 2017.
Our new engineer workflows and to-dos will help you define the work you expect your engineers to complete. They will let you define exactly what’s needed and will let engineers know they shouldn't leave site until those specific tasks been completed.
Our user experience team has also spent the past few months talking to electrical, fire and security companies with the aim of provide industry-specific features and tools to better help you manage and grow your business.
These features won't just mean improvements for electrical contractors or fire and security firms – they’ll improve the experience of the software for everyone involved and make it that much for flexible for you.
I hope that you can see Commusoft is planning a fantastic year of features and performance improvements!
