Highlights: January 2022

Published by: 0

Reflection is an important activity within all aspects of our lives. Often our busy agendas distract us from taking a step back to ponder. It’s a useful exercise that can lead to realisation of progress (or lack of) and what changes can be made to improve. Ultimately this leads to change and higher levels of satisfaction.

Looking back on 2021, I’m extremely proud of the Wisenet team and what we have achieved while largely working from home. Major new features include new highly automated Elearning Integration and Application Management. In addition to all of the feature releases we have also enhanced security, reliability, performance and deployment processes. This allows us to release updates frequently throughout each week during business hours which means more updates to you without disruption.

The most exciting news is that much of what we have been working on in 2021 is almost ready to release to customers. This is a new Sales product designed to streamline the process of receiving online enquiries and online applications directly into Wisenet. We are in the final phases of development and working with beta customers and look forward to sharing this with you in the coming weeks.

There are of course many other enhancements and new features that we are working on, some of which are outlined below.

We love hearing your feedback so please let us know your thoughts on the latest updates.
