Studies show that knowledge workers can spend 19% of their time looking for and sifting through information. Social networking technology increases communication and collaboration within a company, helping employees to share and find information, decreasing the time spent looking for answers and therefore increasing work efficiency.

Suntico, a social network application that sits as a layer on top of a company’s valuable accounting records, can quickly help business owners reduce the time spent tracking what is going on inside their business.

The latest release of Suntico, available on Monday 3rd February 2014, includes list management, task management, and enhanced social and search features, making it even easier for SMBs to take advantage of social networking technology to better understand how their business is doing.

Simple grouping and filtering of accounts or transactions create instant and powerful insight into the business. These dynamic lists are created by grouping and filtering records based on any number of attributes, for example – account balance, invoice payment status, city and so on. Once created, these lists can be followed and shared company-wide. What’s more, if a user chooses to follow a list, every record within it is also followed - and any tasks, comments or updates related to any of those records will appear in that user’s news feed.

A new task management feature has also been added in this release which will help to manage projects, allocate tasks to colleagues, and improve communications by keeping everyone informed. Tasks may be public or private; once-off or recurring; stand alone or bundled with others to create a hierarchy of tasks; or linked to an account, a contact or a transaction. Tasks are added to the user’s calendar, improving productivity and helping to get work done.

Other improvements in this release include a quicker way to follow records; the search has been enhanced and now searches the news feed making it even easier to find information; and a redesigned news feed allows users to see more wall posts without scrolling than before.

Jawad Mobin, Head of R&D had this to say:

“We have looked very hard at the environment within an SMB. We have invested a lot of time and effort to make it incredibly easy for our clients to get productive with Suntico immediately.”

With enterprise social networking being hailed as the next trend in software, Suntico has its finger on the pulse with this easy to implement social product for small and medium companies.
