Well, it’s almost 2020 and it gives me the opportunity to wrap up this year. Without a doubt 2019 has been a stellar year for us and it went by in a flash. New clients, new features, new premises and new staff.
The significant achievements for ProSpend were:-
*The release of a new user interface. This gives our users a much faster, easier and more intuitive experience. Many thanks for the great feedback we received.
*In response to client’s who wanted their data stored locally we moved our server location with AWS from North America to Sydney
*With the increasing adoption of supplier payment automation, we introduced multi-line scanning, more options for approval workflows and auto-coding.
*As more of our clients implemented purchase orders we spent a lot of time making this module more feature rich with auto-coding and matching of PO’s to supplier payments, added more complex and automated approval workflows and attachment of T&C’s.
*Continuing on with our aim to be a ‘plug-and-play’ solution we completed API connections for our Reckon, Account Right Live, Netsuite and Pronto clients
*Supplier and project code synchronization with MYOB Advanced were enabled
*Options to assign permissions for reporting from a category level right down to a user level
*Google maps integration for mileage expenses
*To assist in our support process a new support desk was launched
*Multiple document attachment to any claim type
*And we introduced tax codes for our global clients
What’s ahead for 2020?
With 2020 just a few days away, here’s a snapshot of what we are planning for the start of the new decade. Certainly it will be a time for our team to consolidate. We have increased our support team to strengthen and uphold the best local, personalised and expert support.
Although we have a host of new features we have planned to deliver this year, we will also continue to develop our product based on client feedback and we will be out visiting you. We will be keenly interested in knowing what is your ‘important new feature’ in 2020.
On our development schedule already:-
*The launch of a budget module. This is a very exciting new offering, that has been taken up by some beta clients and we will be looking to launch this in January. No longer does your budget have to be a hidden excel spreadsheet, your employees get will get visibility at the spend point.
*The conversion of our html mobile app to a native app environment and more features
*Single sign-on functionality and multi-factor authentication
*Bringing in more external data from ERP systems like purchase orders
*Delivery docket capture and three way matching on supplier payments
*Dashboard and user customisation of screens.
*And of course, continual improvement of our data extraction and robotic process automation technology
