In this age of facial recognition, artificial intelligence and autonomous vehicles, who knew that it was still possible to geek out over a Word document? Turns out, when you combine powerful automation and rich data with good ol’ Microsoft Word, very good things can happen.

When it comes to regulations, industry standards and supporting controls, the only constant is change. Most organization have smart people and defined processes for managing change, but tracking the changes themselves—knowing what they are and how they impact the business—can be a massive headache.
At Onspring, we deliver major releases of our platform 3–4 times a year, based almost entirely on client requests. Nothing makes us happier than hearing your ideas and meeting your needs in a matter of weeks, not months or years. Our latest release, Onspring 11.0, went live this weekend, and it’s packed with features that save you time, effort and brain power.

Version 7.0 also includes additional customer-driven enhancements across the platform, including dynamic rules for automatically referencing content, which ensures data integrity while always providing a first-class user experience.
Gantt charts. You love them or you hate them. Or you love to hate them. Whatever your sentiment toward this mainstay of the project management world, there’s no denying that Gantt charts can be an incredibly useful tool for visualizing project resources and activities over time. That is…IF they are easy to create and modify and IF they are accurate. Otherwise, they’re not worth the paper (or screen space) they’re written on.
Onspring 6.0 is now available! This latest version of our Process Automation Platform includes significant reporting and automation enhancements. Clients who use Onspring for internal audit, risk management, corporate counsel, vendor management and other business functions will find powerful new capabilities for tracking, measuring and visualizing their data.
For the most part, technology has changed our lives for the better. Technology in business definitely makes our jobs easier, reduces costs and allows many of us to provide products and services we never thought possible. All that being said, it’s still fun to think about the past and reminisce about the “old days” in life and business. The way things have changed can almost always be traced back to some type of technology. I’m not talking about dinosaur days or the old west, but how quickly things have changed over the last 25 years or so.
It became apparent that the end-to-end process could be improved by integrating email communication directly into Onspring. This would enable the client to more closely monitor customer relationships and ensure that nothing falls through the cracks. Our team quickly went to work to design an intuitive connector that captures email and relates it to contact data already stored in the system.
We’re excited to announce that Onspring version 5.0 was released this week, and many of our clients took advantage of the new features on the first day they were available. The Onspring Process Automation Platform allows you to create elegant business apps, surveys, reports and dashboards with just a few clicks. The days of lengthy development, test and deploy cycles are over. Check out a few of the new features in v5.0, and learn why we added them for our clients.
