(PRWEB) November 5, 2003
Richmond, CA (PRWeb) November, 2003 Â LuluWest, a leading provider of business productivity applications for individuals and companies, this month announced the release of Personal Assistant Version 2.0 (PA). Personal Assistant combines voice and video technology with sound business practices to create a software product that is both practical and easy to use. As an alternative to the PDA, Personal Assistant is the only video-based desktop/laptop application designed specifically for executives, office administrators and traveling professionals.
Version 2 enhances the current functionality of PA by adding video to the Administrative Workspaces. Now when a function is requested in the Projects, Planning, Tasks, Mail or Current Events Workspaces a vignette explaining the function is run before your PA either provides assistance or performs the function for you. In addition to Workspace improvements, the Business Resources and Tips modules have also been updated with new information for year 2003. Other key features of Version 2 include:
Â Improved Microsoft Office Integration for e-mail, tasks and document creation
Â Updated contact manager for improved individual and company tracking
Â Updated pricing information and functionality in system lookup tables to improve the creation of travel itineraries and expense reports
Â Additional document templates to assist in the creation of third-party documents
ÂWith the struggling economy and cutbacks in administrative staff, many business professionals find themselves without any help to perform basic daily functions,Â explains Tonya Cole, vice president marketing. ÂPersonal Assistant provides the executive with a virtual secretary, dedicated to performing the administrative and research tasks that can take up so much of your day.Â
ÂPersonal Assistant is a product that is practical, useful, and non-intimidating,Â says Arthur Bart-Williams, vice president of professional services at ViaNovus. ÂI enjoy starting my computer and knowing that there is someone there to help me sort through my mail, plan my trips and do my expense reports. If I had a real office administrator I would want her to be just like my virtual PA.Â
