CEDAR FALLS, IA – March 29, 2019 – ASI Computer Systems Inc.® (ASICS) today announced a new feature in ASI SmartBooks® that allows users to better manage their promotional products business through automatic recurring email notifications.
The email feature was devised by a team of ASICS computer experts competing in Hackathon 2018, a 3-day idea-generating coding session. The programmers, who were part of the “Girl Power” team, collaborated on software projects designed to make ASICS products more useful to customers.
“The goal of hackathons is to brainstorm new ideas that evolve into better products and improved features that will help our clients save time and increase efficiency,” said Jamie Fens, senior vice president of product development and support. “I’m thrilled the team’s email notification idea resulted in a brand-new feature.”
The new ASI SmartBooks email notifications can help a variety of financial or order-related tasks, including:
