The chances are you never leave home without your smartphone and probably your tablet too. We use it to shop, reserve, order, email, call, run our businesses… run our lives. No wonder there’s a huge battle going on in the background as corporations fight to win your attention via your mobile device. And they’re using social media to do it.
The winds of change
Social media’s rise to power started a number of years ago now. And although instant communications across a wide range of channels are the social norm, the world of enterprise has always seemed reluctant to look beyond email. But the winds of change are blowing.
More social, more control?
Enterprise has a lot to gain from getting up to speed with social media. After all, these days, the focus is on working more closely and more efficiently with more people: not just colleagues and customers but also suppliers, wholesalers, and logistics organizations to name just a few. At the same time, we enjoy more flexibility than ever. Remote working means many of us don’t need to be in the office, at least for part of the week. So for entrepreneurs looking to keep control, social media could provide the perfect answer.
Which brings us to Exact
Business software obviously needs to keep up when it comes to communicating and collaborating as easily and quickly as possible – especially in today’s Mobile Age. And it all needs to be equally reliable and user-friendly too. So we started thinking that injecting a more social media-inspired dimension could be just the answer.
The wheels are already turning
So that’s why we’re working on a new initiative to support communications between colleagues. We’re kicking things off by adding a visual timeline about your suppliers and vendors, showing you exactly what’s happening on that side of the business at a glance.
● Use filters to view the information relevant to your accounts.
● Add comments and updates that your colleagues can also access.
● Receive alerts when you get a response to any updates you make, even when you’re not logged in.
