As winter approaches, and the nights draw in, we’re still working hard in Okappy Halloween HQ. Read on to find out about the latest releases as well as some tricks, treats and industry news.

It was nice seeing some of our newer customers at our recent webinar, where we talked about How to implement workforce management. In case you missed it, the slides and recording are available from our events page. Our next and final webinar of the year will be all about the Job Template Builder. Scroll down for more…

Not so nice this month was an issue some of our customers had with their Internet Service Provider; BT. This caused intermittent connection issues and slow performance when connecting to Okappy. We worked hard to implement workarounds and published a support page with more tips and tricks.

We are also considering offering a new technical support service in conjunction with an IT support company. If this is something you may be interested in, let us know. And as always, don’t forget to bookmark for the latest system status.

Join the Okappy community on Thursday 20th November at 2pm for our final webinar of the year where we’ll be talking about the how’s and the why’s of Creating Job Templates within Okappy. Register on Evenbrite and don’t forget to follow us to be the first to hear about future events.
