New Features and Enhancements

In this release we have some very exciting new features and updates. While a mouthful to say, our new “Common iWeb Authentication Provider Abstraction” enables you to integrate with alternative ways to authenticate users logging into NetForum such as Facebook, Google etc. Also, our performance improvements around accounting invoice data are designed to provide faster mass processes including renewals and other invoice based scheduled tasks as well as large queries related to invoices.

Outlook 365 Integration

Our new outlook 365 integration links outlook to your NetForum database. This allows you to communicate with your customers directly through outlook but see those communications you have sent and received on your customer records in NetForum. This creates a centralized location for your customer communication consolidating and simplifying communication for your staff.

Subscription Autopay

Released in 2017.1.13 our service pack, the Subscription Autopay functionality when used in conjunction with scheduled subscription renewal tasks and stored payments enables you to create an automated perpetual renewal cycle. This reduces hands on work for your staff and streamlines the mass renewal process.
