With Suntico hashtags, companies can use their own vocabulary to find valuable information very quickly

Suntico, the online account management system that links to Sage 50 accounting software, has added Twitter-style hashtags to make it easier to find Sage 50 records and associated discussions.

One of the biggest productivity challenges in any business is the time that it takes for workers to find the information that they need to do their job well. According to McKinsey Global Institute, knowledge workers spend 19% of their time simply searching for and gathering information. That is nearly a day per week, or 10 weeks per year.

Hashtags entered widespread popular use when Twiiter added this facility in July 2009. In Twitter, hashtags make it easy for users to search for posts on particular topics and to see trending topics.

In Suntico, hashtags do this and more. In addition to linking users comments on a particular topic, Suntico also enables users to tag Sage 50 records such as companies, contacts and transactions as well as related tasks and events. This enables companies to link discussions and records around any number of topics such as #newbusiness, #complaint or #competition. Contact and company tags can be published into MailChimp (a popular email marketing system) to enable marketing segmentation.

“With Suntico hashtags, companies can use their own vocabulary to find valuable information very quickly" says Hugh Johnson SVP Business Development at Suntico.

A management facility enables companies to merge hashtags to keep searches neat and optimised.
