The culmination of one year work by our development team, Vision Helpdesk 2.0 Stable Version is now available.
Vision Helpdesk 2.0 is about High Speed Performance, Security, Reliability, Scalability, Portability and User-Friendliness. Vision 2.0 reflects the state of the art in web based helpdesk solutions. It well derives benefits of latest Web2.0 technology and equip support staff with fast, secure and user-friendly interface.
Ajax Based — Lightning Speed Interface
The first thing you’ll notice about 2.0 is its new Lightning Speed Interface. From the top down, we’ve listened to your feedback and thought deeply about the design and the result is a Vision Helpdesk that’s just plain faster. Nearly every task you do on your Helpdesk will take fewer clicks and be faster in 2.0 than it did in a previous version.
A major challenge while designing online softwares is the page reload time – for all operations that you do (may be its submitting form or clicking event etc) requires communication between server and reloading the complete page to display the results.
Ajax contributes –
- User-experience improvement
- Decreasing user delay
- Decrease in bandwidth usage
- High speed results
Satellite Helpdesk — Manage Multiple Companies
Next thing that you’ll notice Improved Satellite Helpdesk Feature (Managing one or more company support under single helpdesk ) Vision Helpdesk pioneers to implement true satellite helpdesk feature — With Vision 2.0 we have introduced Staff Access Control that gives hierarchical control over access rights to staff and admins.. The system has Super Admin on top level followed by Domain Admins at middle and Staff at bottom level..
Paid Support — Bill your customers from Vision Helpdesk
Digging further you’ll find the complete new feature that is Paid Support — We know its everyone’s deep dark wish to have ability to bill customers from helpdesk software. Vision Helpdesk makes your wish complete by integrating with top class Billing Software — WHMCS.
Vision Helpdesk integrates with WHMCS Billing Software to offer Paid Support feature, that means now you can add billing note to a ticket and create invoice right from your Vision helpdesk. If you are thinking the integration will be complex — then delete the thought!! Trust me you don’t need any coding knowledge it’s just matter of adding your whmcs details in vision helpdesk and your vision helpdesk is ready to bill your customers 🙂
Another interesting and complete new feature is Plugin Architecture — Vision2.0 offer Plug-in architecture that allows users to enable / disable several features. Plug-in frameworks help to handle complexity, simplify application configuration and deployment, and enable users or third parties to easily enhance existing applications with self-developed modules without having access to the whole source code.
Currently Vision2.0 includes Plug-in’s like –
- Scrap Book
- Quick Links
- Email Alerts
- Address Book
- Online Staff
Our development team is working further on this feature to implement more and more easy methods for third parties to develop their own code and plug-in to vision helpdesk.. In next upcoming version of Vision you will get a better test of this feature.
