Happy New Year from Abraquest
Summing up the latest news from Abraquest from late 2016 and for 2017.
Abraquest has Many New Features
We have had a very busy few weeks running up to christmas, with 2 releases of Abraquest that contain a number of exciting new features and many new customers have been welcomed particuarly in the latter half of 2016.
Just recently, Issues and Returns has changed, which is the most commonly used part of Abraquest, there are new reporting dashboards that replace some of the older reports and a number of bug fixes that help certain customers with important features like the Abraquest Automated Backup.
Also coming in the next month or so, we will have the Abraquest Unattended Issue / Return feature (currently the existing Abraquest requires teacher to be in the room when issuing or returning books from the library), which will be free to all software assurance customers and enabled by ticking a box in the system config menu option. We also carried out a lot of technical work in the latest releases, to allow for a number of interesting, as yet unannounced developments after that.
We are in the process of updating the website and have some new materials, a brochure which summarises Abraquest for new customers which will be available via PDF, along with a 5 minute long video showing off some of the new features.
Wishing everybody a happy new year.
Director, Spherical Software Limited.
