NetSuxxess Contracts 2.02 app for iOS adds E-Mail Reminder Feature

in Finance (E)

[] Frankfurt, Germany - NetSuxxess GmbH today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of NetSuxxess Contracts 2.02, an important update to its popular contract and subscription management app developed for iOS and Android devices. Millions of contracts exist without being actively managed. Losing track of any contract costs consumers and business owners a lot of money. With NetSuxxess, they can manage all the data from their contracts so they never lose track of a business arrangement again. NetSuxxess makes their phone or tablet a professional business tool.

The new release 2.02 of NetSuxxess brings a reminder feature that e-mails the users at configurable dates to remind them e.g. to cancel, renew or sign a contract at a certain date. Users can configure the app to suit their needs. There are simple presets for consumers and a sophisticated CRM workflow for sales people. The reminder e-mails can be configured to trigger only before, only after or before and after a given event.

"Many users asked us for reminders since the very beginning. Now their wait has an end," explained Michael Kubert, CEO of Frankfurt-based NetSuxxess GmbH. "We finally managed to combine efficiency and security with this release. It's not easy implementing reminders in a way that supports major business requirements, such as keeping data within the company's firewalls and supporting team notifications."

NetSuxxess Contracts is designed for safety and security. All data is stored locally on the device. Users can set up their own server for exchanging data and sending reminder e-mails behind their own firewall. With the desktop companion, users can import/export data, or even turn PDF files into images for viewing on their mobile device. The desktop companion even lets them connect with professional partners from office or while on the road.

Background on Emailed Reminders:
Why were reminders implemented using e-mail technology, not e.g. push messages? NetSuxxess fully supports the BYOD (bring-your-own-device) paradigm, so provides an iOS and also an Android version. Native reminders for Android and iOS are quite different in their features and behavior. The desktop version cannot rely on any sort of standard calendar or reminder functionality, because there is none in Windows and Mac OS X. Accessing native calendars would also have required the permission to access the user's calendars, which security sensitive users wouldn't like. Also e-mail provides a standard interface for some workflows: One can forward e-mails, flag them, direct them to team accounts, have them redirected to a fax machine etc. E-mail is heavily used in business, so it's a proven technology.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 4.3 or later
* 16.1 MB
