Latest Abraquest news for February 2019
This blog post is a little later than planned this year, due to the sheer amount of work we have had on so far. I hope to be back to monthly blog posts and also monthly released of Abraquest in the very near future.
Next Release of Abraquest
We are working on the next release of Abraquest and are trying to include all the suggestions from our customers on software assurance have made in the past year. I have blogged about this a couple of times in the past, so I'm not going to repeat. Expect another blog soon that explains all the new features. I will do this at the point the software is ready to release - hopefully soon.
Web Based Abraquest
Part of the reason for this delayed release is that we have been working through Abraquest to make it web ready. By this I mean we should be able to offer an extra cost option in the first half of this year, that will store the Abraquest data in the web and allow non Windows PC's (iPads, Chromebooks) to access the library.
This is not a big drive at the moment, its just something I wanted to offer because one or two of our customers struggle at installation time due to their network or PC setup so this is something I personally wanted to offer as an option. Time will tell how this will be taken up, but it any case some of the older parts of Abraquest have been replaced internally meaning its had a freshen up and should be a little faster to respond as a result.
Schools that are particularly interested in this option please contact us, we are looking for early adopters. Existing customers - don't worry - if you don't want web based nothing will change for you and you will never be charged extra for things that don't interest you.
Abraquest will be getting some exciting new reports to add to the ones that we added last year. Again if you have any comments about the existing reports, we would love to hear. Please do contact us.
We have recently updated this website with a few minor changes, but which also includes a new customer page containing selected customer images from the past couple of years. Please note I have intentionally not put customer names here in this gallery. If you would like to speak to some of our customers to find out how Abraquest has worked for them please contact us.
The new Abraquest Customers Page.
How To Blog Posts
We are going to start a number of short How To blog posts in the coming weeks and months for Abraquest that will educate readers about all the different features within Abraquest and how to get the best out of it. Questions? Our usual support email address or our contact page are the means of contact for Abraquest Software Assurance customers.
A little late I know, but wishing all our customers a happy and productive new year.
