Alpha Tracker Release 28 - the GDPR update

Someone told me a GDPR joke yesterday and it's worth repeating...
"Knock knock"
"Who's there?"
"GDPR who?"
"Sorry, I don't have your consent to tell you..."
(for our Australian and New Zealand Alpha Tracker customers reading this post... be thankful that you don't have to worry about this new layer of data protection regulation!)

Anyway, I bet you're as fed up with GDPR as we are... but at least the latest version of asbestos software Alpha Tracker, Release 28, will help you with your GDPR admin.

In addition to the GDPR-specific features (which Kim is documenting in full and which will form part of the release notes and updated manual), there are 200+ new features, performance improvements and bug fixes.

One of the most important new features is a new link to the popular CRM system from Really Simple Systems - something which is worth looking into if you want to use a CRM system alongside Alpha Tracker.

Here is a quick video to introduce Release 28 to you:

If you want help to install Alpha Tracker Release 28, just get in touch with the support team as usual, or feel free to download and install the update yourself.

Another productive week in our Adelaide office

I've been working with Judy & Leanne this week in our Adelaide Alpha Tracker office.

The Alpha Tracker office in Adelaide, South Australia
It's been really worthwhile and we've been particularly busy (as usual!):

- meeting new clients interested in our software development and support services (mobile data in particular)

- Skyping with asbestos consultancies to discuss new Alpha Tracker software opportunities

- meeting our Australian bank manager to set up a new business structure here which will benefit our customers in Australia and New Zealand in particular.

I've also had the chance to do some sightseeing and enjoy all that Adelaide and the South Australian coast has to offer.  It really is a very special place to visit.

Not a bad commute!

Another asbestos consultancy chooses Alpha Tracker

We've just had another asbestos software Alpha Tracker order from a building & property maintenance business, Degiorgio Properties.

Degiorgio Properties are expanding their operations into asbestos and needed a quick and easy way to deliver first-class asbestos reports to their clients.

We're really looking forward to working with our new client.

Software meeting at Penfolds Magill Estate

Judy & I had an excellent software meeting this morning at the world-famous Penfolds Magill Estate in Adelaide.  We were discussing their mobile data collection system and how we could support and improve it.

What an interesting and impressive site & business Penfolds is.  Hopefully we'll be seeing much more of them and their business in the future.
