"Workers are no longer waiting for IT to help them solve their department-level challenges."

Ready or not, the Consumerization of IT movement is expanding beyond cell phones and tablets to include enterprise software and business applications. Today, TrackVia launched its new Getting Started Wizard, helping make it even easier and faster for non-technical business people to set-up an account and begin building their own cloud-based department applications within days, hours or even minutes – and at a fraction of the cost of generic software or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.
“Workers are no longer waiting for IT to help them solve their department-level challenges,” said Pete Khanna, CEO of TrackVia. “More and more often, front-line workers are taking matters into their own hands and turning to easy-to-use, secure and scalable solutions like TrackVia to almost instantly build their own applications to run sales, marketing, call center support, product development, or any one of the other key functions within an organization.”
The new release of TrackVia and the Getting Started Wizard guides users through five simple steps to set up an account and begin building an application from scratch, importing data from an existing application or spreadsheet, or installing one of five prebuilt applications for sales (CRM), project management, support call center, product management, and order management. Additional prebuilt applications for tracking software bugs, inventory, marketing programs, public relations initiatives, work orders, HR data, and more are planned for later this summer. All prebuilt applications are free and available to all TrackVia customers, including users of the free 14-day trial.
“The new Getting Started Wizard and prebuilt applications are ways for users to get an instant sense for the power, flexibility and scalability of TrackVia,” said Chris Basham, co-founder and COO at TrackVia. “Users can use the prebuilt applications ‘as is’, or easily customize them to fit their exact needs.”
More than 1,000 businesses currently use TrackVia as a next-generation, cloud-based alternative to 1) generic end-user databases and solutions like Excel, Filemaker or MS Access, and 2) Inflexible, one-size fits all business software or SaaS applications. The three most common use cases of TrackVia include:
- Productivity Apps: A more flexible, powerful and user-friendly alternative to software-based databases or spreadsheets;
- Functional Apps: An easy-to-use platform that allows non-technical users to replicate or build their own custom department application for sales (CRM), marketing, support, operations, HR and more; and
