Happy New Year everyone!
And it’s not just a new year. Everything else is new too. Not content with a new release (Macro Scheduler V11) which we got out early in December we felt it was high time for a new look as well. So along with a nifty new logo we have a new site design, as you will see if you are reading this on the web site. If not, head on over to www.mjtnet.com and check it out.
There’s one very minor glitch noticeable only if you are using IE6, which is probably the worst web browser ever made. Unfortunately, amazingly, according to our web server logs 35% of hits come from IE6. If you are one of those using IE6 ditch it now! Upgrade to IE7, or, better, try Firefox or Google Chrome if you have to. Please. Ok, we’re working on the IE6 issue. Rant over.
If you spot any broken links, please let me know.
Also new is a series of Macro Scheduler user podcasts. We thought it would be cool to interview some Macro Scheduler users, find out more about them and how they are benefiting from the software, what kinds of things they’re doing with it. We figured rather than doing stuffy old case studies it would be more fun to be a bit more informal and create some podcasts. You’ll find them over on the Customer Testimonial page. So far there are six podcasts. You can hear how Mitch Vincent uses Macro Scheduler for automated data input and software testing at K-Software. Paul Griffin speaks about AppNavigator, how it is helping make mortgage approvals more efficient and how he became an MJT Net partner. Antonius Momac also talks about software testing at Triple Point Technologies. Phil Lewis from Siemens tells us how Macro Scheduler helps him administer a large DNS network. Bob Hansen talks about how he’s made a living automating his clients’ processes; and Keith Passaur of eDocFile talks about document imaging automation.
“I couldn’t work without Macro Scheduler. It is the glue that allows me to automate all the other office applications together. I couldn’t support my customer’s without it. I’m just so happy I found it when I did.” Bob Hansen.
It’s great to hear how different people are using and benefiting from Macro Scheduler, and it’s really useful for other people working in similar areas. Hopefully this will become a regular series. If you would like to take part, drop me a line and we’ll set it up. If you would like to get in touch with anyone featured in a podcast you’ll find links to their company websites on the podcast page, most of them hang out in the forums, or you can just drop me a line and I’ll put you in touch.
You can also subscribe to the podcasts at iTunes. Here. Enjoy.
All the very best for 2009 folks!
