Exciting Product Updates

Updated look and feel—new color palette, fresh and modern, right out of the box

New slideshow component—easily added to your portal; highly functional visual navigation for end users guides them to internal and external resources with one click

Hierarchy browser—create a thesaurus and enable portal end users to easily move up and down the hierarchy and get as broad or narrow as they wish

Audit trail—track any changes or additions to records and permissions (who, what, when) for a complete history of activity

SLA 2019 Sneak Peek:

SLA attendees will be the first to see this prototype!

Artificial Intelligence integration is coming soon—automatic categorization capabilities using IBM's Watson!
